Breitbart Hack Milo Yiannopoulos: “Feminized Culture” Causes Mass Murder
There have been a lot of awful right wing articles and blog posts about the massacre at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College, trying to deflect the discussion away from America’s sick love affair with guns and the terrible toll of pain and grief it continues to wreak on innocent people.
But out of all the crazy rationalizations and excuse-making I’ve seen, one article stands out as the worst, by far: this one by strange self-hating gay Breitbart hack Milo Yiannopoulos: How to Stop Mass Shootings.
Because Yiannopoulos is actually arguing that mass killers are being created by “today’s man-punishing, feminised culture” that suppresses young men’s natural urges to crush and dominate and “shoot things.” If men aren’t allowed to indulge their impulse to conquer, he argues, they really have no other choice but to grab as many guns as they can and slaughter a whole lot of people, preferably while they’re sitting in a classroom.
I might be a raging homo, but I still innately understand the male need to conquer, crush and win. Men need to express that dark, powerful part of themselves, or it can abruptly overflow. If it is suppressed, derided and ridiculed, it can show up without warning and with horrible consequences.
That’s why I’m so distressed that heterosexual men are being told, constantly, by the media and even in schools, that what they are is bad. This, I submit, is at least in part what’s driving the recent spate of shootings.
The media trash-talks everything men love: guns, booze, boisterousness, drugs, sex and video games. Economic pressures are relentlessly stripping away male spaces like the traditional pub, where blokes can drink and bond. Social pressures are opening up male-only golf and social clubs to women, destroying what made them precious and essential.
Progressives don’t see the irony in going after “straight white men.” But they are hypocritical bigots, hounding people for gender, skin colour and sexuality and saying that essential male characteristics are wrong. Men must be allowed to compete. To fight. To shoot things. Today’s man-punishing, feminised culture is creating killers by suppressing these urges. We have to stop it.
He goes in in this deranged vein for another 12 paragraphs. Yiannopoulos has made a career of pandering to the “men’s rights” crowd and the adolescent “GamerGate” loons who are locked in a perpetual state of rage because women won’t give them sex whenever they want it — damaged males who blame their failings and inadequacies on imaginary suppression by “feminists.”
I’d end by saying this grotesque Breitbart clown disgusts me, but I think that’s obvious. This horrible post amounts to justifying mass murder with misogynistic persecution fantasies; there’s something seriously wrong with this guy, and with the delusional people who follow him.
