EXCLUSIVE: Milo Yiannopoulos Explains His Lawsuit Against Newspaper That Blamed Him For 5 Deaths

He’s bringing them to court

Published

on

Conservative superstar Milo Yiannopoulos has announced over Instagram that he is suing the New York Observer for libel. The Observer ran a headline based on his response to a media request where he joked about “vigilante squads gunning down journalists” that made it seem as though he was encouraging violence, specifically causing Thursday’s shooting in Maryland that left five dead.

Milo spoke exclusively to Big League Politics explaining his reasoning for the lawsuit.

“The New York Observer and its reporter Davis Richardson knowingly and maliciously cooked up a hysterical frenzy, presenting a dumb private remark as a ‘threat’ or ‘incitement,'” Milo stated. “The only people making a fuss about hurting journalists this week were other journalists, and they did so knowing they were spreading dangerous falsehoods. The Observer and their reporter are directly responsible for the 250,000 tweets today accusing me of complicity in the deaths of five people, and they are going to pay for their malicious libel.”

Milo sent the message to Daily Beast reporter Will Sommer, who was requesting comment on a story relating  to him joining the U.K. Independence Party (UKIP). The message was clearly sent as a joke, which from Milo isn’t a stranger to. Despite this, the article was run making it seem as though he was making a  call to violence.

Sommer is well known for attacking conservatives, and runs a weekly newsletter which does just that on a regular basis. Milo not  taking his request seriously shouldn’t have been much of a surprise, and his response could have been easily ignored, or at least reported in context.

After reports of the shooting in Maryland, which was targeted at the Capital Gazette, thousands of Tweets referencing the Observer’s article came out blaming Milo for the shooting. As it turns out, the shooting was not motivated by Milo, or any political figure, but rather a lawsuit the shooter lost in 2015 against the paper.

In his Instagram post showing a text message to the reporter who covered his story, Milo states that he is spending money he was initially going to spend to sue publisher Simon & Schuster, who dropped a settled book deal with him a year ago. Milo appears to pledge to spend $3 million on the lawsuit.

Lesbian Activist Trashes Trans Fad: ‘Biology is Not a Social Construct’

Published

on

Some of the letters in the LGBT community are not feeling so communal if a prominent lesbian activist and Army Staff Sergeant is to be believed.

“I have spent every day of my life since that time advocating for the marginalized and oppressed, especially sexual minorities,” wrote Miriam Ben-Shalom in The Federalist. “I’ve organized rallies, shown up and stood up wherever injustice was allowed to flourish. I’ve twice chained myself to the White House fence and engaged in non-violent civil disobedience to protest the ban on LGB people in the military. I’ve risked jail time and criminal charges on behalf of my brothers and sisters in the LGB community.”

Ben-Shalom was originally honorably discharged from the Army for homosexuality, but was the first person re-instated after such a discharge in 1988, which she describes as one of the proudest moments of her life.

But things aren’t completely hunky-dory for the lesbian activist right now. Though she believes that transgender people deserve respect and ought not to be discriminated against, it is clear that Ben-Shalom thinks the movement has gone too far.

“[I] ought not to be expected to believe that by some magic and lots of surgeries and chemicals that a man can be a woman and a woman a man,” she wrote. “I, and all woman and children, should not have to put up with the shenanigans of those who insist that biology is ‘a social construct’ but gender ‘is innate in a person’ when the exact opposite is true.”

Ironically, Ben-Shalom’s views on the subject are so controversial that she was forced to publish her op-ed in the socially conservative Federalist. 

She also knocked the growing trend of parents forcing transgenderism on their children.

“Children should not be experimented upon by infusing them with puberty blockers to keep them from growing up,” she said. “Children should not be operated upon and have body parts removed because they ‘feel’ they are something other than what they are, should not be subjected to a lifetime of ill health because of Big Pharma’s chemicals.”

Ben-Shalom said that lesbian women should not be accused of “transphobia” for refusing to sleep with biological males who “identify” as transgender females, and that the law should not protect transgender females who want to use men’s bathrooms and locker rooms.

“Do you understand now why this is not about trans humans being discriminated against, but is about something much more horrible and revolting: the chemical sterilization of children, the denial of basic human rights to women and children, and the erasure of women? Do you still wonder why we do not want the law to allow such people in our spaces?”
