According to Breitbart, Michael Arceneaux, a blogger for Univision and writer for The Guardian, went on record to call MILO a “‘snide, racist piece of shit’ and a ‘hate-mongering white dude with daddy issues,’ despite MILO repeatedly coming out against racism, white supremacy, and identity politics in any form.”
Arceneaux, who has also guest written for the New York Times Magazine, Gawker, and Buzzfeed, wrote a blog post where he called out MILO for consistently behaving in a bigoted manner, citing fake news headlines created about MILO.
He accused the right of “playing the role of the victim” when talking about free speech, saying that MILO is a “bigot” and the right only defends the hate speech as free speech, but when the left protests, they shut this down as a blow to free speech.
An excerpt from Arceneaux’s blog:
Milo Yiannopoulos is a snide, racist piece of shit who benefits from the lowered expectations typically afforded to even the most mediocre white man. He has been referred to as a “beast” who “obliterates” political correctness as if PC culture—even at its peak—ever stopped a hate-mongering white dude with daddy issues from spouting out their prejudice-peppered acidity to sizable applause. Those who find him impressive are as small-minded and useless as he is. Those that assist him in boosting his profile, and subsequently, his brand of white supremacy, are nothing more than accomplices, not to mention assholes.
Yet, whenever Milo Yiannopoulos is extended an invitation to present himself and his worldview on a platform he doesn’t belong on, the responsible party abstains from accepting culpability. Instead, they play the role of victim, or in some cases, feign moral and intellectual superiority. You see, in their mind, inviting a bigot along isn’t the problem. No, no, the problem is with anyone who doesn’t see the purpose in offering a place for someone so stubbornly dedicated to their linear view of the world.
Bill Maher is the latest example of this, though for someone who often fancies himself as the reasonable and most thoughtful one, he is singing the same boring, intellectually disingenuous song all others before him have sung.
After Yiannopoulos was booked to appear on the most recent edition of Real Time with Bill Maher, one of the other guests, Jeremy Scahill, dropped out of the show in protest. In a post detailing his reasoning, Scahill wrote that Yiannopoulos “has ample venues to spew his hateful diatribes” and noted that “there is no value in ‘debating’ him.” Maher came with the trite “whiny liberal” narrative in response.
