Milo wants vigilantes to start killing journalists, and he’s not being ‘ironic’ | Southern Poverty Law Center

The far-right provocateur tells reporters he hopes angry conservatives start assassinating them, and the alt-right ’14/88ers’ love the idea.

Apparently, Milo Yiannopoulos didn’t get the memo about the need for civility in our discourse.

“I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight,” the far-right provocateur texted a reporter for the New York Observer this week. When the reporter inquired further, Yiannopoulos explained that he had simply issued his “standard response to a request for a comment.

  1. Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

    Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    The quotation stems from Niemöller’s lectures during the early postwar period. Different versions of the quotation exist. These can be attributed to the fact that Niemöller spoke extemporaneously and in a number of settings. Much controversy surrounds the content of the poem as it has been printed in varying forms, referring to diverse groups such as Catholics, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Jews, Union members , or utopianists00 depending upon the version. Nonetheless his point was that Germans—in particular, he believed, the leaders of the Protestant churches—had been complicit through their silence in the Nazi imprisonment, persecution, and murder of millions of people

    They have already come for the teachers and workers and unions. Most of us are reduced to slave labor jobs no medical no place to rent or buy. Filthy radioacive and chemical air water food They have made 10s of millions have no shelter. Trillions spent to bomb the hell out of others far away. Dripping with evil

    The Mass Psychology of Fascism by Wilhelm Reich. It is what is happening. He wrote it in 1933, and most of the book tries to answer the question why democracies continually elect psychopaths to rule them.

  2. Look at china: A totalitarian country, where every truckdriver in red china went on strike last week! The totalitarian government, in China did not crackdon on the truck drivers.  The Chinese Government  did the exact opposite. They sat down with the truckers.Their demands are being met,
    efficently and pretty thuroughly because, the Chinese  have a dynamic economy. They have hope. 

    Things are so ugly, amoral and brutal in america now. A man like trump would be likely to call out the troops and, call for a crackdown if there were a general truckers strike, in America now.  His ugly supporters would cheer it on 

    Americans are consumed by smart phones, computers, the internet, twitter.  They are hypnotized and neutered by bogus tech-crapo, social platforms, internet inanity. Completely distracted by  gaslighting, mind-warped self-indulgence and, twitter trolls.  OBLIVIOUS as everything around us is falling apart. Our livlihoods, our futures, our children’s future, our health, our environment.

    Things do not look well.  This country, is held under a very tight vice grip of banality, poverty, insecurity and insanity right now.  Most people are too stupid and pretzle-brainwashed to get it. There are multiple prongs, to a few multifaceted propaganda machines , controled by EVER fewer puppetmasters.

    There is emerging, the very serious and real threat of a machine of terror.  People are not stirring to the bloody realities and horrors of this threat, in any real ways. 

    I do not hold any illusions about the motives of the fascists , after what happened this week. I could see it coming, when many were deluded into thinking trump, was anything other than a totalitarian psychopath.
    Concentration camps for children. Extremists calling for rightwing death squads to kill jornalists. Rightwing fascists, jingoists and nazis, calling for rallys and death squads to kill young people. To kill people on a much grander scale than charlottesville. If that happened it might be an ignition point.

    Rightwing deathsquads, massacering people in homeless camps,  may not do much to start demonstrations. It is because, so many americans,  have become amoral . They have become desensitized, to most of the brutal cruelty that is emerging in America. Uncaring, about the mass murder and bombing, carried out by our military, for some time in other parts of the empire and, the world.

    Only the more humanistic elements of this society seem to care, at this point. They are actively engaging others about it. They seem to be getting support in a plurality, outside of what is left of mainstream white society.
    Perhaps some grotequely, racially motivated atrocity, could mobilize that group to the streets and, young people would follow. 

    During the sixties there were leaders like martin luther king to provide a template for protest and chenge. The young white people, had a very strong impetus to lay down in the cogs of the machine . To try and stop it, or slow it down. That is  because of the depredations of the senseless imperial war in Vietnam. 

    Although america is mostly controlled by whites now, the fascists are actively and brutally repressing and suppressing, a very large, and  diverse part of the population. 

    The fascists have to play the ugliest race and bigotry cards possible. That is because, this is a depressionary economy where 40% or more, whites included, are in serious poverty. 

    The fascists are very good at manipulating the internet. Their blue dog coconspirators are very good at gaslighting, the  more employed and comfortable in this society, with the mass media and celebrity. This may account for the amorality and desensitization of whites and and others, that are not rightly the ruling class. 

    The fake celebrity, the  three card monty games, the blue dog media and republicans play on people, takes the spotlight, off the open brutality and corrupt evil that has now overtaken us. 

    Many able bodied people, who could take to the streets are in a fish bowl, where they think nothing will happen to them . They think the system will right itself.

    At the same time, trump and the Republican wrecking crew,  are actively destroying everything most americans have cherished and, held close to their hearts, for years. By killing off the last of endengered bison, bears, cats, wolverines here and in Alaska. By destroying all commons, public education, national parks, what is left of the middle class.

    They  are gutting american’s access to healthcare. Gutting social security. Gutting medicare. Gutting access to affordable housing, to their children and the elderly. The elderly who are becoming homeless, are bowled over by the christofascist bullshit. When people do become homeless, they are neutralized. 

    The fascists gave trillions of tax cuts, to the billionaires and corporations. They are subsidizing, the absolute poisoning and polluting of our country.  Doing so with chemicals, coal plants , nuclear plants, trillions on crackpot spacewars farces and further massive military intrigues.

    This is a highly effective fascist machine rolling over america.

    Many able bodied young people are very concerned about health care. Especially if they have children. Maybe they will act soon. In protest. 

    Many americans that are  not doing so well, keeping their heads above water and otherwise, do not care These folks are so very brainwashed and, amoral at this point. They do not care about Yemen. They do not care about the nuclear buildup. Do not care about losing their medicare and social security. They do not care, about the masees of homelessness in the streets. Many could care less, about the the evil of child concentration camps at the border. Do not even if right wing death squads do start murdering journalists.
