The White Nationalist Who Harassed Leslie Jones on Twitter Just Got a Book Deal Because 2016
Milo Yiannopoulos, the Breitbart editor who blamed Gamergate on “an army of sociopathic feminist programmers”; who sponsors a scholarship grant for “exclusively available to white men who wish to pursue their post-secondary education on equal footing with their female, queer and ethnic minority classmates”; who harassed a transgender student on a college campus two weeks ago; and who encouraged his Twitter followers to attack Leslie Jones over the summer (resulting in Yiannopoulos being banned from Twitter) has signed a book deal with Threshold Editions, the conservative imprint of Simon and Schuster, with an advance of $250,000, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“I met with top execs at Simon & Schuster earlier in the year and spent half an hour trying to shock them with lewd jokes and outrageous opinions. I thought they were going to have me escorted from the building — but instead they offered me a wheelbarrow full of money.”
“Every line of attack the forces of political correctness try on me fails pathetically. I’m more powerful, more influential, and more fabulous than ever before and this book is the moement Milo goes mainstream. Social justice warriors should be scared —— very scared.”
I’d say boycott Simon and Schuster for putting money over integrity, but what’s the point? It’s the same imprint that publishes the work of Laura Ingraham, Lou Dobbs, Dick Cheney, Donald Trump, Michelle Malkin, and Dinesh D’Souza. This book will sell half a million copies to other white nationalists and we’re helpless to stop it, just like everything else this year.
