Timcast assesses Milo Yiannopoulos
“Activist Journalists Day Milo Is Gone but Keep Writing About Him”. The latest Timcast looks at whether tech-company deplatforming of "conservatives" really "works". That's appropriate given the Senate Intelligence Committee hearings of Facebook and Twitter executives on CSPAN today (Fox and CNN were taken up with Kavanaugh).
Tim Pool discusses Milo Yiannopoulos, post Twitter.
Yup, Milo has kept his Facebook followers and gets tens of thousands of shares just for making a breakfast yogurt dish.
And Pool says that journalists normally hang out on Twitter, not Facebook.
Pool also says he never saw Milo target Leslie Jones, which supposedly got him banned from Twitter in 2016. Milo denies he targeted her in his book.
And, by the way, even though his language is colorful, and maybe narcissistic (Why ___ hates me) his book really is not that radical. It pretty much says what my own three “Do Ask, Do Tell” books say, and not so far from the “Skin in the Game” theory of Nicholas Taleb.
Frankly, on most things, Pool, Fischer, Milo, EI, and myself, aren’t so far apart. We all think the radical Left is slouching toward not only Marxism but maybe even Stalinism or Maoism.
