He wrote previously using the pseudonym Milo Andreas Wagner.[4][5] Yiannopoulos founded The Kernel, an online tabloid magazine about technology, which he sold to Daily Dot Media in 2014. He rose to notability that year when he began to provide media coverage and commentary surrounding the Gamergate controversy. Overtime with Bill Maher (HBO) Milo Yiannopoulos Interview. Report: Obama's DHS Tried To Hack Indiana's State Electoral Computer System In 2016 - MILO NEWS.

The Daily Caller attributes this report to its ‘News Foundation Investigative Group,’ which states these attacks are “the second confirmed IT scanning assault by DHS officials against states that resisted then-President Barack Obama’s attempt to increase federal involvement in state and local election systems.” Indiana’s Secretary of State Connie Lawson has reportedly confirmed the attack, telling The Daily Caller “we know that between November 1 and December 16 we were scanned with about 14,800 scans, nearly 15,000 different times.”

Indiana’s IT team reportedly traced the scans back to a DHS computer – the same one responsible for attacking Georgia’s electoral system last year. Neither Georgia or Indiana reportedly gave permission. DHS, meanwhile, has denied being the source of the scans. Memories Pizza: Where The Trump Revolution Began? A reader in Chicago sends this video clip in which the notorious Milo Yiannopoulos takes his crew to visit Memories Pizza and interviews the owners about their experience last year.

Memories Pizza: Where The Trump Revolution Began?

You’ll remember Memories Pizza as the small-town Indiana pizza shop whose Evangelical Christian owners were more or less set up by an Indiana TV reporter, amid the Indiana RFRA debacle, who asked them if they would cater a gay wedding. They said no, an answer which, upon broadcast, brought down a hateful national mob on their heads. They closed the business for a few days, and considered never opening again.

They got death threats. I wrote about it all here at the time, saying: Memories Pizza: Where The Trump Revolution Began? The Times of London: Milo ‘the British poster boy for America’s far right’ Yiannopoulos – and this is important – was a pro-Trump partisan during the US election who wrote and spoke fervently in his favour and, towards the end, developed a habit of affectionately referring to Trump simply as “Daddy”.

And he has direct links to the president-elect. Steve Bannon, the man who hired him to write for Breitbart – “The man who made me a star” – was the chief executive of the Trump campaign and will serve as a senior counsellor in the Trump administration. As a result of these ties and his tireless support online and across campuses, Yiannopoulos found himself a guest at Trump’s victory party last month. The Alt-Lite Is Imploding.

Over the last few weeks, we have witnessed the Alt-Lite begin to unravel. The Sad Attempt to Make Trumpism Cool. In the fall of 2008, as the election of Barack Obama started to seem inevitable, many Republicans began wondering about their party’s future.

On Thursday, the Hollywood Reporter broke the news that the alt-right impresario Milo Yiannopoulos will publish a book with Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

Milo Yiannopoulos’s Cynical Book Deal

Yiannopoulos, a thirty-three-year-old editor at Breitbart News, is known for stunts such as announcing the creation of a scholarship fund for white men, leading a racist online harassment campaign against the comedian Leslie Jones, and evangelizing against the “cancer” of “angry, bitter, profane, lesbianic” modern feminism.

(That Yiannopoulos is gay only adds zest to that adjectival layer cake of misogyny.) Though he is often described as a troll provocateur, he prefers the label “free-speech fundamentalist.” The books section of the Amazon site, with its Little League strategy of inventing niche genres to insure that the authors it wants to promote can all come in first place, has taken the bait. I’m not suggesting that readers accept the Yiannopoulos situation. The Mistake the Berkeley Protesters Made about Milo Yiannopoulos.

How Alt-Right “Fellow-Traveller” Milo Yiannopoulos Cracked Up the Right

On Monday afternoon, shortly before he learned that he had been disinvited from the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, that his book deal with Simon & Schuster had been cancelled, and that his fellow-employees at Breitbart News were threatening to quit if he wasn’t fired, Milo Yiannopoulos calmly explained to me that he wasn’t a pedophile or an anti-Semite. Over the weekend, interviews in which he discussed underage sex and Jewish influence on the media and finance had circulated on social media. A group calling itself the Reagan Battalion had scoured the Web and assembled a highlight reel of Yiannopoulos’s most offensive statements, including an endorsement of having sex with thirteen-year-olds.
