Vox admits that MILO is leading the charge against political correctness as an unstoppable force in what they call the “era of unleashing.”

In a piece about the “era of unleashing,” Klein talks about shifts in acceptable discourse by highlighting the sordid revelations about progressive darling Harvey Weinstein, who was revealed to have sexually harassed women for decades. While his behavior was an open secret in the upper echelons of Hollywood, few were willing to talk about it, until now.

The willingness to speak about Weinstein’s horrific behavior is part of a new “era of unleashing,” says Klein, who says that the victims of sexual harassment and assault are more willing than ever to publicly disclose their experiences. That simply wasn’t possible before, due to the social climate.

Likewise, the “era of unleashing”—or rather, the range of acceptable discourse—has been broadened thanks to two key figures: Milo Yiannopoulos and Donald Trump.

Citing Joe Bernstein’s BuzzFeed article, Ezra Klein regurgitates the slant present in the piece, but inadvertently admits that MILO’s willingness to speak to everyone and offer them a fair platform has expanded “the boundaries of acceptable political discourse.”

In other words, Vox admits that MILO is killing political correctness.

Although his emails were presented in a slanted manner, and were completely bereft of context, they revealed how he was open to conversing with everyone. From intersectional feminists aligned with the progressive far left, to so-called “race realists” on the far right, MILO was willing to speak to everyone, if only to get all points of view.

MILO’s willingness to speak to everyone, even those with whom he disagrees on every level, completely disrupts the ideological echo chambers established on both sides of the political spectrum.

“On Thursday night, BuzzFeed’s Joseph Bernstein published a blockbuster story based on a cache of emails between key employees of the Trumpist website Breitbart detailed the way the organization used itself to launder alt-right ideas into the conservative mainstream. This, too, was an unleashing — a calculated, steady effort to expand the boundaries of acceptable political discourse and permit white supremacists to express themselves more freely in public.”

Although the claim that MILO and Breitbart by extension were attempting to “launder alt-right ideas into the conservative mainstream” is unfounded, at best, Klein openly admits that MILO has made a steady effort to broaden the boundaries of “acceptable political discourse.”

Klein cites BuzzFeed for further proof that MILO’s openness to sharing the thoughts of those too afraid to speak is enabling others to free themselves from the shackles of censorship.

“He also heard, with frequency, from accomplished people in predominantly liberal industries — entertainment, tech, academia, fashion, and media — who resented what they felt was a censorious coastal cultural orthodoxy. Taken together, they represent something like a network of sleeper James Damores, vexed but silent for fear of losing their jobs or friends, kvetching to Yiannopoulos as a pressure valve. For Yiannopoulos, these emails weren’t just validation, though they were obviously that. They sometimes became more ammunition for the culture war.

[…] In an email titled “Working for E! Is Hell,” a production manager at the cable network wrote Yiannopoulos that her employer was a “contributor to the fake news machine and my colleagues have become insufferable. … I … offer you my services … a partner in fighting globalism.”

Like BuzzFeed’s Joseph Bernstein, Ezra Klein remains completely intent to silence those who transgress against political correctness—but as he himself says, MILO’s embrace of free speech is driving an expansion “of what people are willing to say and do in public are rocking American society, for better and for worse.”

Political correctness is going to die, and you can thank MILO for it.

    I don’t know, it sounds as if VOX is attempting to find a way to explain away, and perhaps blame, Weinstein’s disgustingness on Milo.
    I’ll wait and see.

  • Kimmy3

    Yay Milo!

  • Kimmy3

    Milo, me love you long time.

  • Jean Collier

    Milo has always encouraged people to give opposing views. He thrives on it

    • verycold

      Because it gives him ammunition for the next snarky response. It is called banter I think. Funny, dark, truthful, edgy, etc. I have seen him literally run after those opposing him begging for open debate. He thrives on “give it your best shot”.

      • So It Goes

        Agreed but if he didn’t win the debate often by exposing their prejudice or conditionings, it wouldn’t work. So he’s often on the mark.

  • dee

    Thank goodness we have Milo in the States!

  • Have you thrown in the towel. We’re just getting started.

    I’ve been waiting for this story to pop up here (still waiting for Breitbart).

    Things I learned (or not) from the BuzzFeed failed attempt at a hit piece:

    – Milo (and Breitbart) have the financial blessing of the Mercer’s. (No kidding! Anyone with half a brain, and who has bothered to follow along, has been well aware of this for some time. The New Yorker covered much of this in their March 27, 2017 issue.)

    – Milo went directly to the people who would be referenced in his Alt-RIght feature article to get the details correct and to ensure accuracy (It’s called journalism!).

    – Milo and Bannon had open and honest communications with each other. (Refreshing!)

    – Milo’s longtime claims that people from all walks of life—and many from well within the ranks of the Left Establishment—were secretly on his side and feeding him useful information…turns out to be 100% factually correct! (Even I suspected that Milo had been exaggerating this a bit. Turns out, not so much. I respect Milo even more now.)

    -Milo pushed the envelope and tested the boundaries of content with his bosses at Breitbart. (Ooh, SHOCKING!)

    -Privately, Milo disavowed and dismissed those around him who appeared to be true racists and anti-semites. (Again, this only reinforces what Milo has always maintained his true stance to be.)

    -Milo used passwords (PASSWORDS!) that may be offensive to some people. (Are they serious with ridiculousness of these “accusations”?!?! Is there no end to the Thought Police?)

    Then, as mentioned in the above article, VOX trips over themselves in the wake of the Buzz,Feed gossip-fest, and ends up with a piece that seems to want to disavow the movement that Milo has spearheaded, and yet does more to pay tribute to his efforts, and highlight the very importance of it all.

    Win, win!
