Disclaimer: I don’t like Milo Yiannopoulos. His brand of in-your-face commentary is counterproductive in my humble opinion. I read his latest article on Daily Caller expecting to hate every word of it. The headline had me angry before I touched the first paragraph:
Happy belated Halloween – the only night of the year 14-year-olds willingly show up to Kevin Spacey’s house. As I write to you, more traumatized young men are spilling their guts to journalists about being fondled or seduced by Spacey. “I would call him a pedophile and a sexual predator,” says a man who has come forward to describe a sexual relationship he had with Spacey when he was just 14 – which ended, he says, with Spacey trying to rape him.
I’m as disgusted as you are by Kevin Spacey’s transparent attempt to cloak himself in gay privilege as a way of distracting us from allegations he tried to fuck a child. This is why identity politics is so poisonous: it seeks to establish separate rules for separate groups based on perceived, or more often simply imaginary, victimhood. Gay people should be held to the same standards as everyone else.
I found myself begrudgingly agreeing with much of what he posted. It’s not acceptable in our politically correct society to agree with portions of a message if you disagree with the messenger, but I have to go against the grain on this one. Milo is (gulp) right to paint the hypocrisy of the left and their mainstream media lackeys as the best angle of attack against identity politics. Case-in-point, this paragraph:
ABC News’s original summary of the allegations against Spacey was that the actor had “come out” in an “emotional tweet.” In other words, Spacey was blithely excused for something he did, because he’s gay and left-wing. I, on the other hand, was viciously attacked for speaking about something that happened to me, because I’m gay and right-wing. Identity politics has always made exceptions for wrong-thinkers.
If I keep stressing that I don’t agree with how Milo handles things, forgive me for trying to be clear. I still believe his handling of his own abuse was harmful to those currently or previously dealing with similar abuse, but I won’t judge him based upon it. I don’t like it, but I’ve never walked a mile in his shoes.
I even disagree with how he frames some of his points in this article, but there were important points made. If Kevin Spacey did some or all of what he’s being accused of, then he deserves full punishment. How the left treated liberal Spacey is very different from how they treated Milo. Identity politics thrives in a society that believes the 11th Commandment is “thou shalt be nice.” On all of these points, Milo seems to agree even if he expressed them in the standard provocative style he loves.
I may never like much of what Milo says or any of the ways he says them, but when he’s right, he’s right. In this article, I agreed with a good chunk of his message. He may be the only man who can tackle this angle of identity politics without being called a hypocrite, so for that I’m glad he wrote it.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
