In case you didn’t realize that the concerted effort to take down Milo was a designated media hit that is aimed to divide and conquer Republicans. From /pol/ yesterday. Note the timestamp.
FYI the MSM has a huge fucking media onslaught that is set to go live Monday to scorch earth Milo and destroy him via the pedophile label.
I’m part of a mailing list (not giving my real name or the name of the list for the sake of protecting my ass from retaliation) but they have been sitting on the story for a while, because they thought Milo was small fries and wanted to wait until he got big enough a thread to go nuclear on.
The journalists are pissed the fuck off Maher put him on the air and more so, pissed off his book deal had not been revoked (and some are pissed that Milo got a book deal from the same publisher who dropped Zoe Quinn’s book, along with a larger signing bonus than most of the publisher’s social justice authors).
There are also those who want to hurt him simply as a proxy to hurt Steve Bannon/Breitbart. since their attempts to attack Bannon have largely failed. Not to mention people on the left being pissed off that most people sided with Milo over the rioters. Rioters, that were paid for by Soros through a variety of fronts and laundered through companies that can’t be traced back to him.
Expect a steady drumbeat of “Milo is a pedophile” and “Milo must be dropped from CPAC”. The later is especially important, in terms of the divide and conquer long game the press is playing: the press wants a civil war with the McCain/Graham wing of the GOP and the Trump/Ryan wing so as to weaken the Republicans in 2018. The overall plan is to make the Republicans fear social shaming from the media and the left more than they do their actual constituents who love Trump, in hopes of regaining the House and enough Senate seats to pull off an impeachment of Trump.
They are particularly frightened of the Alt-Right, of course, because only the Alt-Right has the courage to actually attack them instead of cowering dutifully before them like cucks or going gracefully down to noble defeat like conservatives.
It matters in so far as it’s an attempt to go after anyone connected with the alt-right silenced and destroyed publicly.
Case in point, there are a couple of journalists sitting on some nasty shit Gavin McInnes did when he was with Vice. Stuff Shane Smith personally helped said reporters gather (since Shane hates Gavin and would gladly backstab in a heart beat).
Also know they have been soliciting shit on Steve Crowder, Laura Southern, Ann Coulter, along with trying to get their grubby hands on as much anti-PC footage and audio they can gather to take down Anthony Cumia, since Cumia keeps surviving every hit they try on him. They are going the long view angle.
The right are at a crossroads in that a younger generation has risen and going conservative, which kills their plan for a never-ending wave of kids being born and each generation being SJW types.
The media in particular, has started to notice as well that after years of ignoring the internet, that the libertarian wing of the GOP have started colonizing their own segment of the internet that grows stronger every day. They blame Bannon for this; Bannon was the one who saw the need (one that Breitbart himself ignored) that you need to make conservativism sexy and young; Fox News may have served a purpose, but it’s too tied to older folks and more so, bound to the old axis of religious right/big business, that Trump’s election and the youthquake shattered with Trump’s ascension.
Milo, Southern, McInnes, Crowder, Compound Media are basically the right’s version of MSNBC/Vice/Daily Show/Colbert Report. I’d also toss in Alex Jones, but Jones is considered a whole other beast in than the others in a lot of ways, by my fellow journalists so I’m leaving him out.
Them being on the internet also puts them beyond the traditional media’s reach to silence them. And they are bringing in the young conservatives and converting jaded, pissed off liberals to the right.
They want them dead, now while they are still on the brink of mainstream acceptance, because the left is TERRIFIED of the right having their own version of John Stewart/Stephen Colbert/Samantha Bee/John Oliver types and the mainstream media definitely wants to kneecap the right claiming any significant internet territory to rival the left’s control over most of the internet.
Keep that in mind if you feel inclined to wax indignant and turn your back in huffy righteousness on Milo, Gavin, Steve, Laura, Ann, or Anthony. Or, eventually, Mike Cernovich, Stefan Molyneux, and me. You are being played by the Left. You are, quite literally, serving their interests.
I have to say that I’m very pleased with both the Dread Ilk and the Castalia House authors. Very few of the former, and absolutely none of the latter, were foolish enough to be taken in by it, and more than a few contacted me to let me know of their support for Milo.
