Milo Yiannopoulos Posts on Instagram After Being Harassed at a Pub: 'It’s Now Impossible For Me to Safely Go Out For Lunch in Most Major Cities in America'
You remember Milo Yiannopoulos? The spilt jar of hateful conservative mayonnaise who got banned from Twitter for his horrific racist abuse of Leslie Jones. A cynical opportunist famous for his anti-feminism, transphobia, and racism, Yiannopoulos used to write for Breitbart, and was once the darling of the ‘alt-right’ until he crossed a line that even his fans couldn’t stomach. He hasn’t been in the media much since his book deal fell through. Well, he might be banned from Twitter, but he still has an Instagram page, which he used yesterday to air a grievance. It seems that while the media may have forgotten Yiannopoulos, the public have not, as he found himself unable to enjoy a meal in peace at a pub in NYC:
I was just shoved and screamed at by a big group in a pub in Manhattan and forced out of the place. One of them was a reporter for Gizmodo. They were screaming at the top of their lungs about “Nazis” and “KKK”. Initially I was going to stay put obviously but they blocked me from my table and my bag and yelled at me to leave and it was about to escalate into something ugly. It rattled me a little bit (just slightly!), perhaps because I have something to lose in life now. My first thought was John and not getting myself hurt or killed. I don’t know how I’d explain to my black husband that I got hurt for being a “white supremacist”. I didn’t have security with me so I had to just get out of there. I won’t name the place we were at because the staff were really understanding and cool about it. But jeez. It’s now impossible for me to safely go out for lunch in most major cities in America because I supported Trump at the last election and don’t like feminism.

Anyway here’s some things Yiannopoulos has said in the past:
‘Black Lives Matter is the culmination of racial divide. They’re nothing more than the last socially acceptable hate group in America’
‘An army of sociopathic feminist programmers and campaigners, abetted by achingly politically correct American tech bloggers, are terrorizing the entire video game community — lying, bullying and manipulating their way around the internet for profit and attention.’
‘Donald Trump is obviously the most pro-gay candidate in American electoral history.’
‘If white privilege is a thing, why are people working so hard to be black? All of the award shows and cultural events favor black culture’
‘Women have huge competitive advantage when they go into tech because there aren’t many other women. They get coverage when they don’t deserve it, when they enter a room, people pay attention to them. Privately successful women will tell you this.’
‘Ugly people have always been the leaders of the progressive movement. Just look at the early Temperance Women! They tend to be sexless and joyless people, and nothing makes that kind of person happier than telling other people what they are allowed to do.’
‘Muslims are allowed to get away with almost anything. They can shut down and intimidate prominent ex-Muslims. They’re allowed to engage in the most brazen anti-semitism, even as they run for office in European left-wing political parties.’
‘With a little effort, we can help fat people help themselves. But first, we have to make sure that “fat acceptance,” perhaps the most alarming and irresponsible idea to come out of leftist victimhood and grievance politics, is given the heart attack it deserves.’
‘Abortion is wrong. I think everyone knows that, which is why abortion activists are so angry all the time. It’s a bit like when you catch someone out in a lie, and they get really mad at you really quickly, and you can’t work out why until later. It’s guilt.’
‘Behind every racist joke is a scientific fact.’
‘Of all the threats to free speech in history, the one the media give the most credibility to without question is the feminist movement, which is trying to rebrand public debate as harassment.’
‘My theory is that women simply can’t get along with each other or work well together.’
‘Feminism is like any female-dominated group - a perpetual catfight.’
‘The alt-right for me is primarily a cultural reaction to the nannying and language policing and authoritarianism of the progressive left - the stranglehold that it has on culture.’
‘Feminists are like the Borg from ‘Star Trek.’ They don’t know anything about other groups beyond the fact that they need to be assimilated into a hivemind that mindlessly follows the orders of a Queen.’
‘I delight in offending people. I think the grievance brigade, victimhood, the idea that hurt feelings are some kind of special currency - I think that needs to come to an end.’
‘Got freedom? Thank a man, or rather, thank all the men willing to die so the rest of us can go fetal in our safe spaces if somebody hurts our feelings.’
‘I do say things in a way that is going to elicit a response from people.’
I mean, I guess you’re getting responses now, Milo.
