“Feminism is cancer.”
Milo Yiannopoulis is provocative. Apparently of violence as well as of thought.
Until very recently, best known for his Twitter presence (@nero) and his work at Breitbart, Mr. Yiannopoulis, a gay British man in his mid-30s, has undertaken what he calls his “Dangerous Faggot Tour,” — speaking to anti-left audiences in hired halls at the heart of the modern university.
He outrageously decries the regnant “Social Justice Warriors” of anti-capitalism and intersectional feminism, and defends free speech and the candidacy of Donald Trump.
But obviously he is egging on the student mobs. One stunt was to take a poll asking whether the subject would rather his or her daughter get cancer or become a feminist.
Cancer, Milo chortles, was the overwhelming result.
Most people hate modern feminism, he says. It’s only on campuses that the youngsters are unhinged enough to believe that
- rich, pampered college students are “oppressed” just because they are women or gay or trans; that
- white men are “systemically” their “oppressors” and thus “privileged”; and that
- there exists an overarching Patriarchy in capitalist America, but not in the Mideast.
So he is shouted at and “protested” everywhere he goes. This week, Black Lives Matter protesters basically took over an event at DePaul University, with a young woman invading Milo’s personal space, apparently (you decide) hitting him in the face during a Q and A.
The university, which had charged organizers a huge fee for “extra security,” did nothing. Milo’s suing to get back that payment — for services plainly not rendered.
Some patriarchy. Some privilege.
This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.
