Milo Yiannopoulos fired by conservative website The Daily Caller after one column

Published

on

“Alt right” provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos was fired by conservative website The Daily Caller after publishing a single column on the site’s opinion page, said The Hill on Saturday.

The Hill also confirmed on Saturday evening that The Daily Caller fired opinion editor Rob Mariani for his role in bringing the embattled Yiannopoulos on board.

Yiannopoulos announced on his Facebook page Saturday — he is banned for life from Twitter for his role in racist harassment campaigns and other trolling — that he was fired from a position at the Caller as a weekly columnist.

“Sad news: The Daily Caller has caved to pressure and cancelled my weekly column after a day, claiming, falsely, they never planned to run weekly contributions from me,” wrote Yiannopoulos.

“Where will it end? So: no new MILO column for now. This sort of cowardice is why the Right in America loses and will keep losing the culture wars,” he added.

The Daily Caller’s top editor Geoffrey Ingersoll confirmed to CNN’s Oliver Darcy that the website has also fired opinion editor Mariani over the “fiasco” that resulted from publishing Yiannopoulos.

This week, billionaire hedge funder Robert Mercer announced that he has withdrawn his financial support of Yiannopoulos and severed “all ties” with the fallen pundit.

BuzzFeed News published an expose of leaked emails between Yiannopoulos, his ghostwriters and the heads of multiple white supremacist groups last month that revealed how cozy Breitbart.com, its CEO Steve Bannon and Yiannopoulos are with some of the most hateful and violent right-wing agitators in the U.S. and beyond.

Yiannopoulos was fired from his position as tech editor at Breitbart.com after video surfaced of the rising right-wing star speaking favorably of acts of child sex predation against young boys by older men.

GOP looks like it’s in a ‘state of panic’ after labeling combat veteran a ‘socialist loser’ for running as a Democrat: columnist

Published

on

Republicans in Cincinnati, Ohio, may have overstepped the boundaries of poor taste, calling a former Air Force pilot a "socialist loser."

As columnist Jason Williams writes in the Cincinnati Enquirer, the GOP majorly flubbed their campaign against the Democrat.

"Yeesh, not a good look for the Trump Party," Williams writes. "Democrat Nikki Foster is neither a socialist nor a loser, from what little we know about the Mason moderate after she launched her campaign in Ohio's 1st Congressional District on Monday."

‘The worst thing he’s done’: GOP insider freaks out about what Trump’s racist attacks mean for 2020

Published

on

A Republican Party insider has told the Washington Examiner's David Drucker that President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic congresswomen are doing real damage to his efforts to get reelected in 2020.

In particular, GOP insiders fear the president is permanently driving away the suburban women and college-educated white voters that he will need to secure any kind of victory next year, as these voters will not want to be associated with overt racism.
