So... this seems to be happening quite a lot. I thought the shooting of a Milo fan last week would have been about as bad as it got.

Not sure what story you're referring to. The only thing I'm seeing is an anti-Milo protester being shot last week by a Trump supporter near the University of Washington.

Looks like you're right. I haven't checked back on that story since it happened so that's my bad. Still, inexcusable and a sign of how bad this is getting.

Unfortunately, pro-gun types (the guy was also an NRA supporter) shooting people they don't like is not a new thing in this country.

This is disgraceful and I get the feeling a lot of people will agree with it, 'I'm not saying violence is OK buuuuut Milo is a racist, misogynist, Islamaphobe spreading hate speech'. Just this week on here I have learned that punching people is completely fine if you don't like their opinion.

Milo bitches and moans about this kind of thing but I bet he'd be kind of upset if he wasn't able to use these things as a jumping off point for his bs.

Goofle 02-02-2017 11:17 AM

^ Okay.

The most interesting part of that clip is CNN's reporting. Didn't say his name and labelled him 'Alt-Right', despite him being nothing of the sort.

Frownland 02-02-2017 11:19 AM

Lmao nah he's alt right as ****.

Hmmm, opposes feminism, believes liberals are cucks and betas, says Muslims seek the overthrow of Western values, believes 'White Genocide' is a thing. How is he not a part of the 'alt-right'?
