Milo is not the victim here

“Milo Yiannopoulos, who writes for the ‘alt right’ (i.e. white supremacist or neo-fascist) website, is a master at victimizing other people and then claiming victim status for himself when he’s hit back. For example, he actually took advantage of a position in the White House Press Corps to whine to former President Obama about Twitter taking his blue checkmark away. And unfortunately, Yiannopoulos has all too many enablers on the so-called ‘libertarian’ Right. His latest misappropriation of victim status follows the cancellation of his appearance at UC Berkeley January 31, because of the administration’s alleged safety concerns over violent demonstrations.” [editor’s note: The “concerns” weren’t “alleged.” The appearance was canceled after actual violence broke out. And Carson’s column just goes downhill from there. How abysmally bad this one is highlights how good he usually is – TLK]
