Buzzfeed and the stolen emails

Buzzfeed apparently got their hands on some stolen emails of Milo's, a few of which were his exchanges with me. As far as I'm concerned, that's the most noteworthy aspect of today's "expose" on Milo.
A year and a half ago, Milo Yiannopoulos set himself a difficult task: to define the alt-right. It was five months before Hillary Clinton named the alt-right in a campaign speech, 10 months before the alt-right’s great hope became president, and 17 months before Charlottesville clinched the alt-right as a stalking horse for violent white nationalism. The movement had just begun its explosive emergence into the country’s politics and culture.

At the time, Yiannopoulos, who would later describe himself as a “fellow traveler” of the alt-right, was the tech editor of Breitbart. In summer 2015, after spending a year gathering momentum through GamerGate — the opening salvo of the new culture wars — he convinced Breitbart upper management to give him his own section. And for four months, he helped Bannon wage what the Breitbart boss called in emails to staff “#war.” It was a war, fought story by story, against the perceived forces of liberal activism on every conceivable battleground in American life.

Yiannopoulos was a useful soldier whose very public identity as a gay man (one who has now married a black man) helped defend him, his anti-political correctness crusade, and his employer from charges of bigotry.

But now Yiannopoulos had a more complicated fight on his hands. The left — and worse, some on the right — had started to condemn the new conservative energy as reactionary and racist. Yiannopoulos had to take back “alt-right,” to redefine for Breitbart’s audience a poorly understood, leaderless movement, parts of which had already started to resist the term itself....

Over the next three days, Yiannopoulos passed the article back to Yarvin and the white nationalist Saucier, the latter of whom gave line-by-line annotations. He also sent it to Vox Day, a writer who was expelled from the board of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America for calling a black writer an “ignorant savage,” and to Alex Marlow, the editor of Breitbart.

“Solid, fair, and fairly comprehensive,” Vox Day responded, with a few suggestions.

“Most of it is great but I don’t want to rush a major long form piece like this,” Marlow wrote back. “A few people will need to weigh in since it deals heavily with race.”
Lawsy me! Tell me if you can see why I find the reference to me to be absolutely hilarious. Also, in case you haven't been around here since 2013, the quote attributed to me is both incomplete and incorrect. I actually called SFWA's affirmative action pet NK Jemisin, the columnist for the The New York Times Book Review and one of only three two-straight winners of the Hugo Award for Best Novel in science fiction history, "an educated, but ignorant half-savage, with little more understanding of what it took to build a new literature by "a bunch of beardy old middle-class middle-American guys" than an illiterate Igbotu tribesman has of how to build a jet engine."

Just to be clear.

That is the best quote. I hope it doesn't go away when they rewrite the entire Internet to conform with the current narrative. Then rewrite it again a week later ...

VFM 424 here--you may have cut down the Igbotu. I have worked with a lot of people from Ghana and Nigeria, and they were far smarter and hard-working than most American blacks. I was once doing a bunch of dishes in the kitchen, and a group of the Africans were around the corner in the break room. They were slamming the work habits of American blacks, agreeing that they would only last 2 or 3 days in Africa.

VD: I don't understand your fascination with Hugo awards, to be honest ...

I prefer to measure my success with stacks of cash.

What I'd have called "one of history's happy fools" probably needs Hugo awards to cover for the lack of stacks of cash.

The kinds of things you're doing lately seem to be more conducive to producing stacks of cash, which are precisely what you need to tell these people to bug off.

If Milo had simply acquired stacks of cash before certain awkward and badly timed admissions, he'd have been in a much better place for telling these people precisely how they can proceed to snuff it.

Recognition by the Sci-Fi Writers of America? That's nice.

I prefer recognition by the staff when I walk into the central London location of Coutts.

Not expelled from SFWA, but from BOARD of SFWA. Accidentally tells the truth, which is that Vox is still a member of SFWA.

It's too bad there aren't comments at Buzzfeed so that I could thank them for giving me names of people to follow.

Blogger Lovekraft October 05, 2017 6:50 PM  

I haven't noticed an increase in attacks on the alt-right since Sunday. There's still the usual leftists spouting their drivel.

What is so special about this Buzzfeed hitpiece and does it signal some escalation?

As far as I know, the DOJ has been uncovering massive Soros/Obama slushfunds of anti-democratic activist groups, major Hollywood players are being charged with rape, the LGBTQ lobby is laying low, and the Colbert types are being increasingly seen as globalist/statist propagandists.

I've been watching for signs the LasVegas massacre will indicate a new push (if it's even possible) to demonize white males, but nothing's really come up.

I think the Milos, Southerns, Cernoviches, Posobieks et al are holding firm, and even expect some major new media collaboration that will rival the networks within the next year.

Anonymous Rfvujm October 05, 2017 6:55 PM  

Based on the tone in the rest of the snippet of the article, I'm surprised they managed say Vox Day without also mentioning your given (legal?) name. It seems like the majority of hit pieces I've read go out of their way to do so.

It would make sense that the African tribes sold all their criminals, lowlives, and dumbasses to the slave traders. I mean, what would you do in their position? It would definitely cut down on prison costs.

I think it is important to note the emerging depth of the dark money funding these left wing/BLM/LaRaza groups.

Monumental resources, meanwhile they focus on a disparate and disorganized grassroots movement.

We are truly the David to their Goliath.

@2 "Igbotu" is a village in Nigeria, not a tribe. (not that it mattered for Vox's skewering of NKJ) It is inhabited by Ijaw, who are different from the Igbo, though they are neighbors who have intermarried somewhat and both are known as traders. It is likely that the ancestors of today's Igbotu residents sold the ancestors of many of today's American Blacks. The Ijaw and the Igbo were perhaps the two biggest slave-capturing and selling tribes, (though as much as 15% of all slaves shipped to the New World were Igbo).

And having thoroughly demonstrated her inferiority with their own publishing house, they're now going to do the same to Ta-Nehisi Coates in comics.

You might want to look up the details of Vox's family history and first record deal before making assumptions about how much he needs to worry about cash.

I honestly don't believe Buzzfeed actually got hold of Milo's emails.

The examples look like something the world's least capable 4chan anon would cook up while drunk, and Milo is such a drama queen he'd be REEEEing to high heaven about his emails being hacked if it were true.

This reeks of SJW sock-puppetry, and this would hardly be their first time falsifying a straw-man to beat on.

Given the number of leaks coming from their side, this looks like desperate manufacture of "et tu"

My respect for Bannon increased as a result of this Buzzfeed piece. He nailed it. The timing to push Milo off his ass and get into the fight.

I thought he was a top notch media visionary, but its anecdotes like this that cement the legacy.

If you are not remotely receptive to leftist dogwhistles then everyone comes out rather well.

Blogger Azure Amaranthine October 05, 2017 8:56 PM  

The only thing in the entire article which both is about Vox Day and is not a lie is the nickname, "Vox Day".

Oh, and also the fact that he corresponded with Milo. I can't speak for the accuracy of the contents of purported correspondence.

Biggest lessons of Milo article:

- He has too many snitches around him

- Bannon is savage

- Media loves email leaks unless its Wikileaks

"I've been watching for signs the LasVegas massacre will indicate a new push (if it's even possible) to demonize white males, but nothing's really come up."

A betting man would place money that this is because every single piece of evidence about the perpetrator points straight at the left-as-cause. They're still pushing for weapons bans/confiscation though.

Anonymous Andrew E. October 05, 2017 9:10 PM  

Why does Milo blame Richard Spencer for the "racist" and "supremacist" hand signs given by people watching some kareoke performance of his? Spencer has actual ideas that presumably Milo could engage rather than the name-calling.

Anonymous Raptor disrespect from behind October 05, 2017 9:14 PM  

If anything it shows the level of their research. I wouldn't be surprised to find that the author thinks Vox Day is his real name.

Yeah, but not good ones.

Didn't we come around to agreeing that Jemisin is a full savage? Jemisin herself identified as one and, as far as I know, she still does. Her actions in no-platforming those she hates would certainly point in that direction.

Nah, a full savage would have deplatformed with a club rather than a vote. It's also to point out the fact that she's not entirely black, because that hurts her SJW street cred and makes her allies REEEEE a bit more in her general direction.

The implied is that once the whites are eaten, the part-whites are next. One drop.

Regardless, no price tag is too high to tie the alt-lite to nazism on steroids, but I'd be interested to know nonetheless.

Also, my gut feeling doesn't point at the left as the source of these leaks.

The worst thing of this is that the BuzzFeed article has absolutely nothing wrong or dangerous or incorrect to display. The show Milo being counseled again and again to make good choices, to stay away from the people who are dangerous as opposed to those he just disagrees with.

The worst thing they could find was ironic passwords.

taking advice from a mentally ill jew like cerno, who claims to be a poor kid from the midwest but was living at...6095 Paseo Canyon Dr, Malibu... is dishonest, and obscene. the guy is a parasite...an an idiot. but that is what a twitter loser is, i guess. is this what passes as intelligence? maybe around these parts of the alt kike web...
