Milo Yiannopoulos gets $12 million investment in ongoing assholery

After Milo Yiannopoulos lost his Twitter account, a book deal, and Breitbart job—no thanks to Bill Maher, no matter what the Real Time host says—it looked like the “alt-right” mouthpiece had been fully divested of a platform from which to spew his hate.

Over the last several years, “alt-right” firebrand Milo Yiannopolis has mobilized a rabid fan base of noxious, mouth-breathing racists by exploiting his status as a gay man who nevertheless embraces the right’s misogyny, Islamophobia, and general lack of inclusivity.

Bill Maher’s much-touted Real Time interview with “alt-right” hatemonger Milo Yiannopoulos happened tonight, and it played out exactly how you’d expect: Yiannopoulos peddled his usual mixture of self-aggrandizement, half-hearted “It’s just a joke!” defenses, and vicious attacks on celebrity women like Lena Dunham and…
