Simon & Schuster Cancels Publication of Milo Yiannopoulos’s Book

Breitbart employees threaten to walk out if he isn’t fired
Wingnuts • Views: 41,471

Milo Yiannopoulos’s career is in total free-fall today. As you can see from the tweets above, his book deal with Simon & Schuster has been cancelled. I’m wondering if he’ll still get to keep that $250,000 advance, or if there’s some kind of “morality clause” in his contract?

And that’s not all. Other employees at the far right propaganda site Breitbart “News” are now threatening to resign if Yiannopoulos is not fired.

A senior editor at the right-wing publication tells Washingtonian that “at least a half-dozen” employees are prepared to leave the company if Milo Yiannopoulos is not promptly fired. A second Breitbart source confirms this estimate.

[…]

“The fact of the matter is that there’s been so many things that have been objectionable about Milo over the last couple of years, quite frankly. This is something far more sinister,” the senior editor says. “If the company isn’t willing to act, there are at least half a dozen people who are willing to walk out over it.”

“Talking abut young boys and somehow seeking to ameliorate concerns over young boys’ relationships with older men…I’m pretty sure everyone in the company would vomit upon hearing these words,” the source continues. “What right-thinking person doesn’t feel sick to their stomach when hearing something like that?”

Right. His support for white supremacism, his race-baiting, his hateful comments about Muslims, his harassment of women and transgendered people, all of that was fine with Breitbart’s employees — but they draw the line at pedophilia. Nice to know they have standards.

A week ago, he was a martyr to “free speech.”

24 hours ago, he was a rising star in the far-right.

Now, he’s roadkill.

The reason for this sudden change in RWNJ thinking is that pedophiles could target white boys.

All other targets of Milo Y’s abuse (non-whites, women, transgender people) are regarded as ‘other’ by US conservatives, making them fit targets for any and all abuse.

It’s sad because he was abused as a child (at least that’s what I’ve seen reported that he has said). It’s possible that he has rationalized this to deal with that trauma. But nothing justifies the intentional pain he causes with his words, and the additional humiliation he heaps upon people who voice that pain. What a disgusting man.

Well, there’s the fact that he was a voyeur and leered at women at the various pageants he ran. He sexually assaulted women (that’s plural for those who aren’t keeping track) by his own admission (grab ‘em by the pussy).

Even with all that, conservatives and right wingers voted for Bannon/Trump.

Bensoner  Feb 20, 2017 • 2:59:01pm

Milo exploited the far right’s frantic desire to cast itself as something other than the insular, aging, socially regressive and demographically dying movement it is. In a way he’s the older, gay version of Benji Backer or CJ Pearson, except whereas they were young children who’d been brainwashed by their parents and grew out of it, Milo was a fully aware adult. He saw the opportunity to sell misogyny, transphobia, racial & religious intolerance, along with the second class status of his own sexuality as the grift of a lifetime.

Trump told radio host Howard Stern in 2005 that he would often go into the dressing rooms while the contestants were naked, saying in the recordings that he could “sort of get away with things like that.”

re: #12 lawhawk

WaPo: Trump would walk in on the women in the dressing room as they were naked or getting dressed/undressed.

“I’ll go backstage before a show, and everyone’s getting dressed and ready and everything else,” he said. “And you know, no men are anywhere. And I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant. And therefore I’m inspecting it.”

Stern replied, “You’re like a doctor.”

Trump responded: “Is everyone okay? You know they’re standing there with no clothes. And you see these incredible-looking women. And so I sort of get away with things like that.”

He gets away with things like that - because he’s a rich white guy.

The only kind of sex scandal that could dent Trump’s approval among conservatives would be peeping on or abusing white boys.

To which I’m going to add: this rise and fall are part of a larger pattern in which theatrics and ritualized autofellatio have come to define “conservatism” in place of principles, arguments, and consistency.

People are going to “support” Milo because he’s done a good job stoking their resentment and contempt. He makes them feels good, and for some that’s the end-all, be-all.

It’s got nothing to do with him being gay or a Brit. Josh Duggar was hetero and American and guess what still a creep. Milo should be asking himself why Duggar didn’t get that headline. He’ll probably blame the left knowing him but it’s pretty obvious that he was always a useful tool for the right to use to deny they were homophobic. It’s hilarious. He thought he was being so clever and edgy but he was actually just a fucking tool.

It’s revealing that Milo’s collapse was started by a CONSERVATIVE group that released the original edited clip of that Joe Rogan interview, because they were angry that a gay man was giving the CPAC keynote speech. They used the pedophilia statements against Milo to take him down but that wasn’t really their motive.

The same information has been available on non-right wing sites for years, but right wingers completely ignored it until it became politically expedient for them to use it against Milo.

Can we slow this all down…just for a minute? Stuffs happening so fast today I cannot get any work done and even come close to keeping up with the threads.

But I am not in the whirlwind that one Milo Youknowiamanass seems to find himself.

Wow!

And this is all just from Bill Maher Friday night ‘til now. I guess Milo finally touched a nerve…maybe the public’s last one. People do a little digging after Maher’s show and the past comes to catch up and bite his ass.

But how can that surpass the Brits actually discussing how much they want to distance themselves from Trump? Unprecedented in our times I would say. Has the relationship between the two countries ever gone this off the rails in the last 100 years?

I’m tired of all this winning triggered by Trump.

Sorry to go OT here (especially given the joyous news that the shitpile that is Milo’s career has finally been set aflame), but I have a couple of a couple of questions for the IT crowd here, particularly those with an IT security specialty:

I’m trying to set up as secure and anonymous of internet access device as possible.

Is TAILS still the secure OS of choice?

I assume running it (or whatever other OS is best) on a portable device so I’m not constantly hitting the same internet access point would be the ideal, correct? If so, would a Chromebook be enough hardware-wise or will I need a full-fledged laptop?

Years from now, he’ll have a cardboard cutout of the promo materials for his book that he’ll clutch to his mottled chest while drinking box wine and sobbing at old clips of himself on Maher. “I was so close,” he’ll whine…

I knew of him as a fusion guitarist, and then I saw him do a show with ‘Jack Bruce and Friends’ - Bruce, Mike Mandel on keys and Mitch Mitchell on drums - and he put just about every rock guitarist I idolized in those days to shame.

Seeing someone doing ‘Sunshine of your Love’ on an L-5 was one of the wackiest things I’d ever seen, but he quoted the first four bars of Clapton’s solo and then went off. So long ago, but I still remember that show like it was yesterday.

From the previous thread:

re: #186 goddamnedfrank

He’ll get to keep his $250K advance. Just imagine how much background research that could’ve bought.

That’s not how an advance works in publishing (putting on editor hat).

An advance is “an advance against expected royalties.” Advances aren’t paid to just any writer, only a writer the publisher expects to make more money from than the size of the advance.

Advances can be non-refundable to a publisher, provided the author (or musician in the case of a record company) has complied with all the requirements of the publishing contract.

It would depend on what is in Mr. Yiannopolis’s contract. Advances can be set directly against royalties that would be paid.

An advance is literally an advance payment and royalties on sales of the book are set against it. It is not normally refundable, provided that the author fulfils their part of the contract.

It is often split into three parts, payable one-third on signature of the contract, one-third on delivery and acceptance of the manuscript and one-third on publication.

If the book is written and doesn’t need more work, then the advance might be paid in two parts, on signature and publication. In some cases the publisher will want to pay part of the advance on paperback publication (often but not necessarily a year or several months after hardback publication), but obviously it is in your interest to get the money paid to you as soon as possible. Don’t forget to take into account the tax implications of what you agree!

We just got back in this morning at 1am and were pretty much completely disconnected from the news while on vacation. (It was fantastic.) So I am so far behind on the Oroville news. Most of what I’ve been seeing is the stuff going by on Twitter.

I don’t think my normal running path is drying out anytime soon. Too much more and my 5 mile route is going to be in some serious trouble. (I’m already having to run the high side of it.)

Leave,” a woman shouted on the video, flipping her off. “You don’t like America, get the fuck out … You are a disgrace to America,” the man walking next to her said.

They mocked her camera. “You can jack off to that later, the man drawled. “I’ve got a big ol’ white American redneck dick.”

The woman in the hijab told him where to stick it.

“I can put it up your little tight ass,” he countered, “and I won’t be hittin’ that clit, ‘cause it already got removed.”

He stopped his furious pace and commenced yelling every reply, pointing angrily across the street at protesters who were going to “obstruct everything.” “All those losers there better shut up or put up, ‘cause I put up for the past eight years.

Read a piece about the Oroville dam in USA Today that talked about the conservative/liberal divide in CA.

Seriously, I don’t understand people. Or how people can choose to be so dense.

This isn’t just idle talk: One of the first signs heading into Oroville, population 16,000, urges residents to support seceding from California to create a new state of Jefferson. Here in inland California, Gov. Jerry Brown’s name evokes disgust, and President Donald Trump is seen as the one who really cares. Here, residents distrust a state government they think is all-too-eager to help undocumented immigrants and build a bullet train to serve the rich coastal elites, leaving them with little.

“I bet that if they put this effort into building it right the first time, they wouldn’t have to do all of this,” Hofeling, 66, says as a backhoe drops rocks into a dump truck, shaking the ground.

The Ghost of Senator Incitatus  Feb 20, 2017 • 6:02:56pm

Alternate take:

This is entire mess is basically a marketing mistake, but a telling one.

Milo is basically a product and a performer. His “provocations” are bits in the same way comedy routines are.

However…his audience want cruelty and to not empathize—so much so they basically have imaginary outraged liberals in their heads, and seek out actual upset liberals just to sate their need—so when he workshops material, it all tilts toward greater titillation of cruelty. Each round of proclamations, articles, and harassment campaigns has incorporated difference variations on theater of cruelty, targeting different groups and individuals (as synedoches of groups). And each time, his audience not only signs on, but doubles down. It is precisely this quality to his performance that elevated him to where he is (was?): CPAC isn’t quite as guignol as Milo, but it plays out as a self-righteous variant of the same catharatic shitting on lesser folk.

Consider this mess in that light—-to play to an audience that wants more and more titillation in a very particular direction: to denigrate anything “liberals” (a giant swath of people won’t aren’t necessarily liberals in any political sense) seem to value. Playing to that inclination, mocking the concept of consent probably seemed like a brilliant new rock to throw: after all, it’s not an entirely new front to explore (as noted elsewhere, the alt-right dabbles in scoffing at consent because of its MRA element).

All this to say: how many rounds of not caring were cycled through before the people supporting him balked? That’s a rump measure of the hierarchy they impose on the world: who matters, who do they identify with. They didn’t balk at other words about sexual assault and women, et cetera. It had to get this bad before they’d recognize an issue, while the rest of us could see this coming. And now that some have balked, how is their distaste characterize-able, as opposed to their reaction to other similar scandals?

As I said with Trump, these are people who’ve already excused worse. Since Milo broke the one last aesthetic taboo by talking about boys, he won’t come out as clean, but it’s still likely he’ll be salvaged and found a use. Remember, this whole pederasty thing simply further confirms the threat of homosexuality, and he can play on that trope to sell himself in a slightly different way to the same audience. He’s still a product—a gay man that confirms the ugly things they believe—and he can still perform a variant of that function and get paid.

Remember all those fake repentant terrorists that make money on the talk circuit (Walid Shoebat being the most visible)? There you go.

If they put in effort? Do any of these people realize that all engineering is value engineering - that you build or think you build for the conditions, and not more than that because that’s a cost thing. You could build something that handles X, so you don’t build for Y or Z because that costs more.

Were shortcuts taken or were there issues with how they built the spillway? Quite possibly. Or that the repairs done over the years were incomplete.

As technology has improved, we’ve learned more about how water flows and computer simulations can help figure out how to better engineer structures. The emergency spillway is a mess, and they’re going to have to investigate how that was ever allowed, and there’s reports that they should have been armored years ago, but the operators refused to spend for it (there’s that money thing again).

The emergency spillway is a mess, and they’re going to have to investigate how that was ever allowed, and there’s reports that they should have been armored years ago, but the operators refused to spend for it (there’s that money thing again).

From the wikipedia page on the dam:

On October 17, 2005 three environmental groups filed a motion with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission urging federal officials to require that the dam’s emergency spillway be armored with concrete, rather than remain as an earthen spillway and that it did not meet modern safety standards. “In the event of extreme rain and flooding, fast-rising water would overwhelm the main concrete spillway, then flow down the emergency spillway, and that could cause heavy erosion that would create flooding for communities downstream, but also could cause a failure, known as ‘loss of crest control.’” FERC and water agencies responsible for the cost of the upgrades said it was unnecessary and concerns were overblown.

In 2006, a senior civil engineer sent a memo to his managers stating “The emergency spillway meets FERC’s engineering guidelines for an emergency spillway,” and that “The guidelines specify that during a rare flood event, it is acceptable for the emergency spillway to sustain significant damage.”

Beyond that, the people bitching now are the same people that would have been saying something like:

hur hur hur, stupid libtards, what about the drought? Huh? It’s almost empty, why are you wasting money on something that doesn’t get used? Why not give me that money as a tax cut??

Milo’s book cancellation got picked up by the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s Book Editor:

Simon & Schuster cancels Milo Yiannopoulos book deal

Apparently there are limits, even for a provocateur.

Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos—well-known for his unapologetic comments about women, Muslims, minorities, transgender people and others—appears to have crossed a line. Over the weekend, a video surfaced of Yiannopoulos apparently expressing favorable views of pedophilia, and the backlash has been swift.

Yiannopoulos posted on Facebook that the video in question had been edited and that as a gay survivor of childhood sexual abuse he does not condone pedophilia.

“I understand that my usual blend of British sarcasm, provocation and gallows humor might have come across as flippancy, a lack of care for other victims or, worse, ‘advocacy,’” he wrote. “I deeply regret that.”

But a number of Breitbart employees reportedly have threatened to quit if Yiannopoulos is not fired, according to the Washingtonian. The Conservative Political Action Conference has disinvited him from its conference next week.

One of the blast from the past names that have come out attacking the CA response is Victor Davis Hanson, because of course he did.

Let’s just ignore that CA has continued to be constrained by various propositions, and gets back far less than it sends to DC. Or that this is an agency that relied on outdated/outmoded data and that it’s maintenance of the dam may have been suspect - or incomplete, because - money. Not wanting to spend money on infrastructure. Taxpayers not wanting to spend on infrastructure because it wasn’t deemed necessary.

Funny how much of the garbage he’s posting is about the Comet Ping Pong “pizzagate” hoax - which actually fits a pattern regarding Donald Trump and those people he surrounds himself with:

If there is some sort of outlandish story about his political opponents engaging in illegal, disgusting and/or degenerate acts getting pushed out, it is a very very safe bet that it is a cover for something that they are committing themselves. It has happened repeatedly during the past year or so and almost with a clockwork precision.

I met VDH once, in law school or shortly after (check that, shortly after because he was selling this book at the time EDIT: might have been during, the publication date is for the second edition), a Federalist Society event (I think). The book wasn’t very memorable, nor, quite honestly was he… just another conservative wondering why things aren’t as good as when they were kids.

Which, come to think of it, pretty accurately describes a lot of conservatives. “Things were better when I was a kid, why can’t things be like that again?”

The plane had taken off from Melbourne’s second-biggest airport at Essendon on a chartered flight to King Island, 255 kilometers (160 miles) to the south, Neville said.

The mall adjoins the airport.

Police Assistant Commissioner Stephen Leane said it appeared that no one aboard the plane had survived. No one on the ground was injured.

“Looking at the fireball, it is incredibly lucky that no one was at the back of those stores or in the car park of the stores, that no one was even hurt,” Leane told reporters.

A pilot reported a “catastrophic engine failure” moments before the plane crashed into a storage area at the rear of the mall, police said.

re: #271 klys (maker of Silmarils)

Read a piece about the Oroville dam in USA Today that talked about the conservative/liberal divide in CA.

Seriously, I don’t understand people. Or how people can choose to be so dense.

The first and most important concept of Public Policy and economics was the Tragedy of the Commons:

en.wikipedia.org

This concept has informed us for almost 200 years, but was not really incorporated into American law until the Nixon Administration, when the concept was expanded it to include our shared land, air, and water with the Clean Air and Clean Water acts and the establishment of the Environmental Protection Agency.

The fact that we are still arguing over this goes a long way to explain the fight amongst Libs and Cons.

It’s a stupid fight, and was settled along ago. The counterforce against it was spelled out in the Preamble to the Constitution that stated:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Why are we fighting over The Founders stated dreams? That’s Originalism.

I have searched high (no, it’s not stuck into the ceiling) and low (no, it’s not under any of the furniture — it would be easier to hide there, but I searched with a flashlight), and I can’t find it, and it’s driving me nuts.

Evan McMullen probably can’t win a Republican primary.

When Republicans win elections, they double down on their crazy.

If they are seen as weak in their position, the only people that beat them come from the right (see Dave Brat v Eric Cantor).
