Gloating Milo is Best Milo

Nero reaches 100,000 followers on Twitter and is characteristically humble and modest about it in an article entitled "Why I'm Winning":
Earlier today, a student newspaper called Nouse published an op-ed titled, “We Need To Talk About Milo.” It’s a long explanation of why I’m so popular, influential and successful.

I’m mortified by its appearance, obviously. That said, it’s worth reflecting on....

My career is evidence not just that free speech is effective, but that free speech combined with a lack of snobbery and class war always wins in the end. There’s no defence against the truth – especially when it’s wrapped up in a joke and has great hair.

Progressivism and social justice threw everyone out one by one, until the number of people who weren’t permitted to talk was greater than the group allowed to. I’m a direct casualty of that exclusionary attitude: a gay, matrilinearly Jewish conservative Catholic who, according to your worldview, shouldn’t exist.

Is it any wonder I found common cause with the irreverent hordes of GamerGate? It’s the gamers, of course, I have to thank for giving me a leg-up a year ago. We might not look much alike, the average gamer and me. But, when you think about it, we’re natural ideological bedfellows – and we’ve both been cast out by the people who ought to have been our defenders. So we made our own family together, as dysfunctional as it can sometimes appear.
There are few things I like better than breathtaking arrogance that is based on genuine self-confidence and ability.

Huh, I'd never heard him describe himself as a "conservative Catholic." One of those branches of Catholicism that advocates promiscuous gay sex, apparently?

I've often wondered what Milo's goals are in allying himself with Vox for example. He seems like an interesting guy, other than being a gross pervert and all. But I wonder what he has in common ideologically with someone like Vox.

A healthy society would force men like him to act normal or be totally ostracized, possibly even imprisoned for his behavior. He couldn't be the Milo that he is if the folks here (myself included) got their way about what society should be like. I think that's a good thing, but does he?

It seems like him allying with Vox is a bit like us allying with the radical feminists who are against making trannies into a protected class -- they're right on that one issue, sure, but our goals are so opposed that I wouldn't want to side with them even when they happen to be right.

I only found him early this year but my life is more complete as a result.

Fundamentally though, he's not too far from Greg Gutfeld - who actually worked with Andreew Breitbart - except Greg just makes houseboy jokes, he's not actually gay. I wonder what the difference is.

Joe Roegan got the best of Milo on his podcast, even though Joe isn't nearly as smart or even as good at talking as Milo. The one thing he does have is the ability to smell out bullshit. Milo calling himself catholic and his argument for it was very weak and it hurt the rest of his points, not to mention trying to defend circumcision to a blatantly anti-christian like Joe. It should've been easy to get the best of Joe considering he considers Sam Harris the epitome of intelligence.

Interesting. I wouldn't have guessed that.

I remember my first time seeing him, I read an excellent GamerGate article he wrote, and at the bottom it linked to another article by him which was titled "Men Cheat with Me, not On Me." Seems a little hard to square that with Catholic theology, especially the bragging tone. But hey, if he sees himself as being in the wrong, then that's certainly better than being unapologetic about it.

I'm not some moderate who wants to see him purged; he's been a good ally to very good causes and I appreciate that. I found his GamerGate writing to be very good, especially because of the honest way he went about researching it and writing about it. I remember in that first article I read he talked about how he had thought gamers were losers and so forth but was now reevaluating that. That kind of honesty really makes it easier to trust a journalist, rather than a fake evenhandedness.

I'm glad he's on our side, I just always wondered what his goals were in being there. If he really does want to see the kind of society created that we do, then that's even better.

An honest question.

I won't presume to speak for Milo, his mastery of the written word exceeds my own.

But, many here would advocate for me to lose my right to vote and my right to work outside of the home. Those are freedoms I cherish. Yet, I'm still willing to listen and even make common cause with the folks here on Vox Popoli.

Why?

Because the other side is far worse.

Thanks for a helpful response.

I think you and everyone would be better served by those changes that you would disagree with. (Well, the first one, anyway; I'm not sure if anyone wants women to be strictly forbidden to work outside the home. Mostly just discouraged, I would think, since it's typically suboptimal. Plenty of women got college degrees and worked outside the home even in the 50s.)

If Milo thinks that everyone, including gays, would be better off in a healthier society that discouraged homosexuality (possibly even causing some gays not to become gays in the first place) then that would be a position I could appreciate.

Blogger JartStar November 24, 2015 10:41 AM  

At the risk of turning this into a Catholicism debate, from what I understand of Catholic theology Milo most certainly could be a Catholic and promiscuous. He just needs to repent like everyone else. In all likelihood the local parish priest would deny him the Eucharist if he wanted to take it without confession and penance, but nobody would stop him from going to mass or excommunicate him.

Blogger Gaiseric November 24, 2015 10:43 AM  

@11: I would think Milo's alliance with Vox is pretty obvious, especially given the content of what he writes. He's a derived libertarian, who despises the SJWs. He doesn't agree with Vox 100%, but he does enough that they can get along, and they can certainly both respect what each has managed to build on his own. Kinda like what Cernovich said a week or two ago; agreeing on everything makes you clones. Who wants that?

Plus, Milo covered GamerGate, and Vox is a GamerGate figure. Naturally brought them together.

Blogger Lovekraft November 24, 2015 10:55 AM  

It seems that on the social front (as opposed to the struggle against jihad, globalists/Soros), the enemy are collectivists/relativists. Thirty-odd years of dissecting and discarding all vestiges of western culture (read: things created by white men) resulted in a dark cloud of PC dogma and perversion.

So Milo can oppose these monsters while promoting causes in sync with most of Vox's views/followers. We ilk/minions would easily send the faceless sjw into the workcamps if they continue to spit in the face of common morality and decency (which doesn't necessarily have to be Christianity-based).

In other words, Milo is fighting the good fight and knows that the gay mafia has overplayed their card thousands of times in a free society.

St. Augustine famously said, "Lord, grant me chastity and continence, but not yet." I haven't read Confessions yet (it's on the schedule for next spring), but it's not too hard to imagine him bragging about his affairs even after he knew they were wrong, and even felt sorrow for them.

I guess the gay conservatives before him were not pretty enough to make it big.

I would have figured 100,000 would come much quicker than two years later.

I don't think anyone told him you could buy fake followers like Moochell and HillLIARy.

"conservative Catholic." One of those branches of Catholicism that advocates promiscuous gay sex, apparently?Episcopalians

He couldn't be the Milo that he is if the folks here (myself included) got their way about what society should be like.

Churchill who was head of the British royal navy said "all you need to know about the navy is rum sodomy and the lash" so he was far more tolerant than moooslems who create no go zones and feel emboldened enough to behead a UK soldier in broad daylight while they are leeching off taxpayer paid benefits. One of San Francisco's problems is that while people can have sex on the street in daytime without being arrested, cops wont do much for anything short of murder when both victim and criminal are victim categories because they will get flack from both sides. ie black/Hispanic crime on Asian/gay. A lot of gays don't realize its connected, that they would have to give up sex in streets, graveyards, & railroad tracks to get the cops more willing to protect them.

knows that the gay mafia has overplayed their card thousands of times in a free society

Part of the lefts power is it tells all the disparate parts that they are the chosen group to get their way over the rest. Like when BathHouse Barry told black clergy a week before the 2012 election that he would fight against gay marriage, no gay media other than gay patriot covered it, because everyone just assumed he was lying to them. QUEENS TRUMP SPADES.

Blogger Cail Corishev November 24, 2015 11:29 AM  

from what I understand of Catholic theology Milo most certainly could be a Catholic and promiscuous. He just needs to repent like everyone else.

As long as the repentance is genuine, yes. Valid Confession requires a "firm amendment" to avoid the sin and occasions of that sin in the future. You must have that at the moment of Confession to receive absolution. Obviously, that amendment doesn't have to be permanent, because we all fall back into the same sins more often than not. The guy who's in the confessional reciting the same sin for the 24th time "knows" in an intellectual sense that this probably isn't going to be the last time, but as long as his intention is firm, he's forgiven for the past times.

We're all sinners and recidivists to some extent, unless we've achieved sainthood. I haven't read Milo that long, but I don't think he's trying to square his lifestyle with Catholic theology (leave that to the German bishops). Most of us don't brag about our sins quite so much, but that kinda goes with this particular territory.

Milo didn't lose to Rogan. It wasn't a debate. It was comedy. I actually heard a college student listening to that podcast in the restroom and while he may have been a Rogan guy, it was Milo who was getting the laughs. Rogan is pseudodialectic, which is why when his fans try to partot him as dialectic...they have such confused looks on their faces.

Milo is pure rhetoric, and a master of it.

This is why when Rogan jibjabbed about the Biblical advocacy of psychedelic drugs for the mandatory five minute nonexplanation, Milo popped the bubble with a gentle "oh! You're one of those."

It was a hoot.

@28 John Wright

Well, I hate to be on the other side from Mr. Wright, but I don't feel that we're on the same page here.

My problem isn't that he does bad things, but that he defines himself as a person who does them and, so far as I've ever seen, makes no apology for them -- even brags about them.

Wouldn't a person have to stop actively committing sins in order to be forgiven? Or at least have the intention of not going out and committing them again, even if they did in fact commit them again? I've never seen any indication that he has any desire to end his promiscuous gay lifestyle, even if he thinks it might be better in the abstract if he did.

If he feels convicted privately but maintains that public persona, then it seems to me he's tempting others into his own perversion by making it seem fun and cool, even though he himself knows that it's wrong.

Had I ever seen remorse from him, rather than the "Men Cheat With Me, Not On Me" article, then I would agree with you.

But surely I hope that he does feel convicted privately and that perhaps someday he can stop doing those bad things. I certainly don't believe that he's too far gone to be saved, and I hope that one day he will. Perhaps Vox or folks at Castalia can be good influences on him in that regard.

He's never, as far as I know, tried to square his sex acts with his Catholicism. The closest he's come to it is saying that sex with guilt is the best sex.

I've got zero tolerance for LGBT activists, but when it comes to Christianity and Catholicism, my biggest worry is when someone tries to insist that their sin isn't actually a sin whatsoever, but is rather a good thing or at the very least a non-sin. Milo doesn't do that, and for that my respect for him is considerable.

He's got flaws, but so do I, and he lacks the common flaws that are the worst mark of our age. Plus he's hilarious and sharp.

I have, and I don't read him that much. Granted, some of that I'm reading between the lines. And yes, to the extent that he advocates sinful acts (and isn't being ironic in a way that's obvious to all non-sperges), that would be a sin in itself, but it doesn't mean he doesn't experience contrition.

To me, his talk about homo sex is so over-the-top, while still being accurate about the narcissism and hedonism of it, that I can't imagine anyone reading it and saying, "Sounds good, gotta get me some of that." So I don't see it as advocacy. In a past age when those things weren't discussed in public, you could say he should leave it in the closet. But now it is has been pushed in our faces and normalized -- but only a sanitized version of it where gays are pretty and happy and married. Milo exposes the reality of it, which isn't that way.

Blogger Gaiseric November 24, 2015 1:00 PM

I think it's even simpler than that. It's not your or my place to judge the state of his eternal soul. Therefore, your problem with him is a problem of your own devising only. On the other hand, if you judge him by, say, the good that he does as a reporter for Breitbart, then he's a useful, successful and entertaining ally. I have no problem with useful, successful and entertaining allies, and I leave the state of his soul for him to work out with God.

"My problem isn't that he does bad things, but that he defines himself as a person who does them and, so far as I've ever seen, makes no apology for them -- even brags about them."

We are not on different pages. I simply was not there in the confessional booth last time he was, so I do not know what his actual sins are nor what the state of his soul is.

In a more decent society, he would be shunned. In our society, he is a breath of fresh air.

All I can say is that, as yet, he does not offend my sensibilities half as much as Vox Day does on a routine basis, and Vox is a cherished ally, and, I hope, a friend.

Pray for him. If he is doing wrong, the Holy Spirit will guide him back to the light. From my point of view, I feel like Dante viewing the homosexuals running through the flames on the highest ledge of Mt Purgatory: my sins are worse than his. If he can be forgiven and be saved, there is hope for me.

Blogger JartStar November 24, 2015 1:03 PM  

"Wouldn't a person have to stop actively committing sins in order to be forgiven?"

If you mean stopped at the moment of repentance, yes. If you mean never committing the same sin again, no or heaven would be nearly empty.

This is the Christian walk: sin, repentance, sin, repentance. If eliminating all sin after conversion is a requirement who here would be right with God?

"My problem isn't that he does bad things, but that he defines himself as a person who does them and, so far as I've ever seen, makes no apology for them -- even brags about them."

That's one of my problems with many and perhaps most gays, actually. I can remember being young and not a lot more than the life support system for a penis, connected to an overwhelming urge to rut with as many pretty females as possible. That's all perfectly normal, really, if not notably admirable, at that young age. But the thing is, one grows out of puberty, eventually, and acquires an identity that's something more than what you want to stick into whom. Or, at least, one ought to, if one is ever to be an adult.

Many gays don't grow out of it and become adults. Gay pride? What's to be proud of? You can be proud of your accomplishments. You can even be proud of things which you have no absolute control over; like your mind and your looks. But to be proud of what you want to do with whom, or have done by whom? I just can't see it. It's just childish. Fuck whom you want, I suppose, but for God's sake be a man; be man with some substance, some gravity, and some real purpose.

Blogger Danby November 24, 2015 1:37 PM  

A person is a Catholic if he has been properly baptized in the Church, or properly baptized elsewhere and confirmed in the Church, and accepts the authority of the Church. Those are the requirements.

You will note there is no clause that one must be free of sin, refrain from sin, or even make a firm resolution of refraining from sin. There is not even a requirement that one agree with the Church on even important matters of faith, so long as one can say "I accept the authority of the Church on this matter."

As far as severity of sin, divorce and remarriage is a far greater sin than mere sodomy. Many people accept divorce and remarriage because it looks just like valid marriage, but it adds defiance of God, adultery and denial of truth to the ordinary run of sexual sin. But Christ himself denounced it, in bitterest terms.

OpenID eidolon1109 November 24, 2015 1:49 PM  

It's a solid point that Milo is not all that different from a Heartiste or a Roosh in the sense that he's open about doing immoral things.

To some degree I think it's a failing of mine to view immoral heterosexual acts as less repugnant than homosexual ones, because I find the latter to be far more disgusting. On the other hand, from a societal standpoint the latter are in fact more of a problem -- at least the fact that people can openly commit those acts and talk about them. Of course both types are bad and societally destructive.

I find it difficult to fully get on board with someone who talks about and seemingly celebrates what both I and he regard as his sins, though he certainly is fun to read, and his journalism I find to be very good. I enjoy his "I'm biased, here are my biases up front, but I'll also back up everything I say" style.

As far as the state of his soul, I don't claim to know anything. I never said he was hopelessly condemned, nor do I think that he necessarily is. I just don't know how a man who describes himself as gay and routinely sleeps with other men (according to him) can have a meaningful confession. If you routinely break God's laws, you have every intention to do so as soon as you head out the door, and you write gleefully about how you did so afterward, how sincere could such a confession be?

But of course, he's a very likable guy, and I hope to see him repent and be reconciled to a church. I think Mr. Wright puts it perfectly:

"In a more decent society, he would be shunned. In our society, he is a breath of fresh air."

I couldn't say it any better than that.

I am a Catholic and I sleep with women outside of marriage. I'm not proud of it, I know it's wrong, I confess my sins when I know I'm contrite and want to change, I'm also not surprised when I fail again.

That all said, I'm still a Catholic and my failures are not a comment on the faith nor are they grounds to declare me a non-Catholic. Same goes for Milo.

Regarding Milo's claims, for all the supposed gay sex he's having, what evidence do we have besides his word? His "marriage" to Cory is a joke/fake. What else is not exact about him that he uses as a memetic and rhetorical weapon against the Left?

Anyway, I think he's a the second coming of Oscar Wilde, who became a Catholic in his later years, and I for one am happy to have his fabulousness on our side. Pray for him and pray for me too to find the will to avoid our sins.

I was really irked in recent superhero flicks (and TV shows) about how many white characters were turned over to black men. Nick Fury was OK—I could accept that because Sam Jackson did a great job with the character. But Jimmy Olsen in Supergirl? Iris West in Flash? Even Ben Urich in Daredevil? And Johnny Storm (and their dad) in Fantastic Four? It's starting to get really, really insulting. Even SJWs are starting to feel uncomfortable about how ridiculous it is.

After Milo published his column, tweeted about it and it was read by a number of SJWs, every furniture store in sold out of fainting couches.

Oh Lord, this talk about Milo, and Durandel Almiras kind-of threw himself into the ring. Catholicism and confessions bring back memories of jokes about priests having to take a bathroom break and altar boys left to attend the confession during a brief period of time.

"To some degree I think it's a failing of mine to view immoral heterosexual acts as less repugnant than homosexual ones, because I find the latter to be far more disgusting."

This is not a failing! Homosex is objectively more disgusting than heterosexual adulteries because it is also against nature. Biology and the Bible agree, not to mention the Common Law, and common sense.

Some sins are worse than others. Prides is worse of all the deadly sins, and Lust is the least of the deadly sins, but still deadly.

So sodomy is not worse than pride, but then again:

Murder
The sin of Sodom
Oppression of the poor
Defrauding laborers of their wages

Whenever an atheist chides me for not being a pacifist, I always coolly inspect my Saint James the Moorslayer medal or my Saint George the Asskicker scapular, and tell them that cheating the poor of their wages -- which is what an income tax does to poor wageearners -- is counting in heaven as a greater sin.

"I also add "because the world and those outside rejoice in their sin.""

Well said, sir. Well said indeed.

John,

So sodomy is not worse than pride, but then again:

Isn't sodomy also rampant among heterosexuals? I mean, that's not a gay-only sin.

In a decent society since Milo is for the closet, I suspect that we would have no idea he was gay unless we were close friends with him. That is another of many reasons for all the Milo love.

At the risk of turning this into a Catholicism debate, from what I understand of Catholic theology Milo most certainly could be a Catholic and promiscuous.


"There is no doubt, no gray area, and no change in the Church's teaching about the objective sinfulness of homosexual acts... "Homosexual persons are called to chastity" (CCC 2359) just as heterosexual persons are... However, we must distinguish persons who experience homosexual desires from persons who choose to embrace the homosexual life-style." ---- Peter J. Kreeft, Catholic Christianity

I've often wondered what Milo's goals are in allying himself with Vox for example.

He remarks on this (after several paragraphs of his trademark entertaining bragadoccio):

My secret is just this: I don’t exclude people. I’m everywhere, all the time, and I talk to everyone, especially the people polite society tells me not to, and my contact network and distributed social broadcast platform is of unprecedented size, with dozens of tentacles all over the web. [...]

This is not what social justice warriors do. You guys hide, you exclude, you specialize, you basket all your eggs. You’ve turned your mastheads, comment sections, Twitter feed and safe spaces into aristocratic digital country clubs like something from the 1920s, ejecting each problematic group, religion, philosophy, subculture, and political bent one by one.

You say your audiences are shrinking but have you even read your own copy? How many of your stories tell some percentage of your readership to fuck off? It’s a lot, isn’t it.


Milo is not trying to be a gatekeeper, that would defeat his purpose. He's more like the ultimate socialite.

The Milo tent is very big and very fabulous and interesting guests and fellow partiers are always welcome - which contrasts not only with SJW's, but also mainstream cuckservatives. How many people have been sacked or blackballed by supposedly right-wing institutions like the National Review or the British Conservative Party over the years for being politically incorrect?

How many right-wingers secretly read Vox or Roosh or Chateau Heartiste, but would hastily deny them before the cock crows, if a lefty or "respectable" cuck put them on the spot?

It's a lot. And it's also a losing strategy.

To my way of thinking, Milo's liberal attitude isn't just good policy for him, it's a good example for the rest of us.

Some chaps above speculated on Milo's self-reported legendary homosexual prowess. I dunno about that, but bear this in mind: the "Milo" you see on the internet is a carefully crafted persona.

The man is a genius at marketing himself, and his larger than life personality, exaggerated vanity and lascivious boasts are core elements of his brand. They help him stand out from the crowd and command attention, but they also help him get away with saying stuff that would have gotten a more straight-laced reporter sacked. Or worse.

Come to think of it, he has a lot in common with Donald J. Trump.

@57 You left out the NetFlix "Jessica Jones" episode one tryst between actors Krysten Ritter and Mike Colter. It aired last week, and was pretty gratuitous. Another NetFlix original I won't watch.

Milo is the radical right’s house nigger (to use a most unsavory term), a man who is "our homosexual". We can all here enjoy that he is a conservative who thumbs his noes at authority and causes fits for SJW’s. He serves a purpose, but he assuredly is no ally. Milo flaunts his lifestyle, one that is clearly a violation of natural law and of Western Civilization. He is having the best of both worlds—embracing the gay lifestyle to the delight of liberals and to the chagrin of conservatives, yet calling out SJW’s for their intolerance to the delight of conservatives and to the chagrin of liberals. Perhaps Milo in his old age will “repent” for his “sins” and make Christians here rejoice that he has “seen the light”. But why should he convert and renounce his unnatural acts when he has such notoriety?

In the end, it comes down to a choice. Homosexuality or Christianity.


“The man is a genius at marketing himself, and his larger than life personality, exaggerated vanity and lascivious boasts are core elements of his brand.”

Which is decidedly anti-Christian. Ecclesiastes 6:2—A man to whom God gives wealth, possessions, and honor, so that he lacks nothing of all that he desires, yet God does not give him power to enjoy them, but a stranger enjoys them. This is vanity; it is a grievous evil.

Choose. Homosexuality or Christianity.


“I am a Catholic and I sleep with women outside of marriage. I'm not proud of it, I know it's wrong, I confess my sins when I know I'm contrite and want to change, I'm also not surprised when I fail again. That all said, I'm still a Catholic and my failures are not a comment on the faith nor are they grounds to declare me a non-Catholic. Same goes for Milo.”

And why do you “fail again”? You are stuck in a rut. Take God truly into your heart. Otherwise, you are Christian in name only. Actually make a change to your behavior rather than pretending to.


“What else is not exact about him that he uses as a memetic and rhetorical weapon against the Left?”

Milo is a classic attention whore in the same vein as Anna Sarkeshian.


Choose. Homosexuality or Christianity.
