Remember Milo Yiannopoulos? In case you forgot, he’s the racist, alt-Right (read: Nazi) former Breitbart editor who found his career spiraling downhill after he openly endorsed both pedophilia and child molestation. His comments on the subject were so horrible, even the annual conservative convention disinvited him and he lost his position at one of the worst right-wing rags to ever exist.
But now Milo has found his new cause: as the Grand Marshal of the upcoming “Straight Pride” parade in Boston.
Now you may be thinking, “But isn’t he gay? Doesn’t he reference it repeatedly while pushing right-wing talking points?” This would be a good observation to make — if the “straight pride” parade wasn’t the sexuality-themed equivalent of a “white pride” march.
“I might technically be a sequined and perfectly coiffed friend of Dorothy’s, but I’ve spent my entire career advocating for the rights of America’s most brutally repressed identity — straight people — so I know a thing or two about discrimination,” Milo said regarding his participation in the hate rally. “This parade is a gift to anyone, male or female, black or white—gay and transgender allies, too!—who will stand with us and celebrate the wonder and the majesty of God’s own heterosexuality. “
The “discrimination” he referenced was being deplatformed by every major social media company because of his hateful views. He has also been banned from an entire country over his despicable statements.
” Men, bring your most toxic selves. Women, prepare to burn your briefcases!” Milo added. “Because it’s great to be straight, and we’re not apologizing for it anymore. We’re Here, Not Queer.”
The “straight pride” event was organized in response to Pride Month, which celebrates people who are actually oppressed — much in the way “white pride” events are often organized in response to Black History Month.
Naturally, the internet is having a field day with this news:
The event previously was using Brad Pitt’s face to promote the event, until the actor told them to f*ck off.
