In this case he's merely being used as a token; which he's certainly okay with.

Of course

He to me has always been an opportunistic **** , who got some limelight and seems a tad narcissistic.

He went OTT with the attention and then as was always going to happen it backfired on him spectacularly.

Now he is just desperate to stay relevant

But at the end of the day people claiming he is alt right is a bit stupid.

Whether he clings to the alt-right out or principle or purely out of opportunity, nevertheless, he clings to the alt-right, and they are in no hurry to shake him off. The organizers of the parade are already alt-righters, and they're using an established alt-right character as their "parade marshal".

OK

Let us all take the jewish heritage, gay, married to a black bloke's blustering as being representative of the alt-right, and then have 10 pages of people posting how the crap he says is universal to anyone who happened to vote Trump.

And then hit anyone wearing a Trump hat

Which frankly is what it is turning into

It's not that; it's just that the fact of his selection cements the alt-right nature of the event. Prior, the alt-right bent of the organizers could have been argued (perhaps not convincingly) as coincidental and irrelevant. Not anymore.

Sorry

I am just strugglingly to see how people even take this **** like the straight parade and Milo so seriously

Ignoring things rather than taking it seriously tend to make these things disappear into the pointless abyss they came from

Only to people stupid enough to think Milo is alt right

Anyone who watched most of his stuff would just think he is pro mens rights and anti feminist

I'm stuck on the fact that he's a gay man and this is the straight parade. Is it irony?

It has to be irony, I guess.

These guys are weird.

Yeah, I know, but if a straight person were the head honcho of the gay pride parade, there'd be a melee.

Not once you realize the parade really has little to do with straight pride.

I really think people are beginning to read too much into things

To me it just looks like a bunch of blokes winding people up, which may or may not have started by some idiot hillbilly saying "Ya see this sick "gay" thing is on again Cletus? If them "gays" can have a party, I reckon' we should have one too.....That'll show them darn pansies"

I do not know why you think ideological purism is a prerequisite for belonging to the alt-right. It is rather the opposite of the point of the alt-right.

At this point of what you classify as alt-right I wouldn't mind just knowing what your criteria to be it is

Milo self-acknowledges his association with the alt-right; but "alt-right" is an overarching organizational or rallying umbrella that bridges reactionary neo-Nazi and white supremacist, misogynist, and anti-immigrant factions. Basically the idea is to network various types of bigoted minds that formerly wouldn't necessarily meet, and allow them to work together for common causes. A neo-Confederate, for instance, would not in the past have spent much time in the company of say Asatru 1488'ers; however as "alt-righters" they can put aside their differences to work together on issues they can agree on, such as ending non-white immigration, or protesting the removal of a Robert Lee statue as "erasing white history".

It confirms what I first thought: that it was just a huge bit of performance trolling. I did like how it provoked Axe body spray to denounce them which provoked a far right boycott of their products which I'm sure has them shaking.

It specifically applies to you. YOU have no way of knowing if your assertion is accurate. The person you're responding to has an article in which the victims were set upon doing just the thing you assert has got to be extremely rare. In said article, she cites a common problem in that if two women are together and tell a lounge lizard to get lost because they're gay, the lounge lizards of the world have been known to respond with "Oh, yeah? Prove it. Kiss her!"

Milo worked for Breitbart. He was some kind of senior editor. It's the alt-right mouthpiece. Just because he's an attention whore, that does not exclude him from being one of the leading lights of the Alt-Right. The fact that he's gay makes him a bit of an anomaly; the fact that he's a self-hating gay wins him street cred with the troglodytes. The alt-right loves their anomalous attention seekers. Milo and Candace for the win.

What is it that makes you think that an attention-seeking clown can't be a paragon of Alt-Right qualities (well, other than that whole homo thing)? You seem to think everyone who's extreme is a clown to be dismissed. Weren't you preaching this to us about Nazis (sorry, "nazis") just last week? How do you feel about the Klan, just to pick another group you have zero familiarity with? Betcha think they're clowns, too.

I have never said ignore Nazis

I think you should reread my posts

And I take your point with the first paragraph

I was wrong to say it is a rarity without first reading the history of every newspaper on the globe first

You haven't taken the time to familiarize yourself with the reprobates organizing this protest/parade, I see. Take the time to educate yourself. This was linked earlier in the thread.

That one is a fair point

I realised a little earlier it is our pal Kyle and friends, but it was too late.

In terms of the parade itself I now agree it is basically just a front for the Front so to speak.

So if I could take back a couple of posts I would, but I can't so them is the breaks.

With regard to Milo.

He was already a loud mouth narcissitic ****, but this just makes him an even bigger loud mouth narcissitic ****.

Hilited: That's some of that famous Kiwi sarcasm I take it. Sadly it's a total Straw Man. I don't give a rat's ass if you read anything about history (seeing as to how it's obviously a subject you're not terribly interested in), but in a thread about Topic X, you should at least have read the articles about Topic X.

You are wrong to expound on any topic of which you have no familiarity, because it leaves you arguing from assertion.

"When was the last time a straight couple was beaten and robbed for refusing to make out to entertain strangers?"

"When was the last time a gay couple were?

It is a horrible act by a bunch of teenage thugs, but it is extremely rare if you are going by your criteria"

So what I did wrong was add the second sentence

Won't do it again

It has to be irony, I guess.

These guys are weird.
They are rather queer. Not that there is anything wrong with that. They can be proud of their queerness. I say, let them have their queer Pride parade.

Lol

That would make for a great protest walking beside them

Massive placards with "Who are this queer lot?"

Yeah... "Straight Pride Parade" is just a euphemism for a "Unite the Scumbags March"

Slightly off topic but Nazis are marching in Detroit this week as a protest against Pride.

https://gritpost.com/armed-neo-nazis...ice-escorting/

"Videos from the event Saturday showed neo-Nazi protestors with police escort marching through downtown Detroit during the Motor City Pride festivities. NSM members from across the country reportedly traveled to Detroit to take part in this anti-Pride demonstration."

Right, what a daft thing to be proud about. LGBTQ pride expressions only exist as a reaction to a long history of hatred, oppression and a denial of human dignity. You would have to have your head a long way up your privileged space to not see such an obvious fact.
