The other aisle has already emboldened themselves with his deplatforming and are celebrating the precedents of not only Milo but also Alex Jones.

While I think Milo is a total cunt who had most of his fuckups coming to him, it is the principle here that shines ever clear: If Milo was some sort of lefty icon instead, all of his scandals would be quickly swept under the rug and his following artificially bolstered and inflated by tech oligarchies. If Milo were an icon for the other side, he would remain so, in spite of all his misdoings. His biggest crime was not condoning pedophilia, committing embezzlement, or championing fraud—His most horrid offense was being conservative.

Never forget. These people want you broke, dead, your children raped, and they think it’s funny.
Also just to add to this: deplatforming isn't a new thing. This is strictly a leftist tactic that was used principally by 20th century communists and was rolled out into the US as early as the 60s. The word "deplatforming" is a very acutely designed strategy and it's a game that when the other side starts to play it, things just keep getting worse because if you try to trap them within their own rules all you're doing is validating the rules themselves which is what they want.
Milo is about as gaudy and shitty as Ana Kasparian, and probably as many blowups and gaffes. So if she still has a job then we can all agree we are playing by different rules.

Somewhat. He still is remarkably capable of getting into dramas so it wouldn't take him much time to gain notoriety.
It isn't the sort of notoriety that's easily turned into money, though, or at least not money in the quantities necessary to make him happy. If he hadn't bought into his own bullshit and lived up to his profligate image, he could have easily coasted until now in moderate comfort from the bonanza he had a couple years ago.

This is what absolutely annoys me about people like him. They don't know when to stop playing into the brand and start being more professional when the time comes.

It's like how Sargon of Akkad lists his official job title on his LinkedIn profile as "Troublemaker." People like him and Milo don't understand that they have to stop playing "the character" eventually and start actually taking what they are doing more seriously. They look so autistic and don't even know it.

i never got the appeal of milo

like, even compared to other alt right grifters he sucks. sargon keeps shitting out videos on a regular basis, crowder makes his dumb podcast on a reliable schedule, shapiro runs his news site, etc.

meanwhile, what does milo do? has the guy ever actually delivered content that wasn't just him appearing on other peoples shows or attracting media attention by being edgy?

You'd think that being sexually abused as a child would have made him calm, rational, and forward thinking but actually it made him an emotionally fucked up, self-sabotaging masochist whose whole identity is about absorbing as much shame and humiliation as possible.

Maybe he can do a heel face turn and start wearing dresses and be a tranny mascot for the pharma industry?

That Vice article was painful to read through. I can't believe somebody got paid to write that. It comes across as a LiveJournal post I would have read back in 2004.

That said, while the deplatforming thing is fucked (I don't care who you are), Milo should look in the mirror and realize who shares a lot of the blame for his current situation.

He has spent the last two years providing zero actual content for his former big following. Here's the list of promises he's made to his fans while asking for their financial support: podcasts, books, music, comedy shows, tours, and the website. The only thing he has followed through with is the website, but I just took a look at it ... And not only is the format messy, but it doesn't get updated nearly as much as a news website should, so ...

Also, he pissed his money away on needless shit. He's a true millennial: He was irresponsible with his money, and now he acts entitled to more money. Dude, if you want more money, then maybe you should create something for the few fans you have left?! lol. That would be a start!

Also, over the past year or so, I've been curious enough to watch some interviews that Milo has done. In every single interview, he obsesses over a miniscule disagreement he has with the interviewer, and antagonizes them. And none of these interviewers are progressives; they're conservatives who are trying to do Milo a favor, lol. If you treat the ones who actually granted you the time to interview you and to give you some much-needed exposure, then aren't you an asshole if you approach all of these interviews in a flat-out bitchy and unprofessional way?

Anyway, I still maintain that Milo had several opportunities to bounce back after the whole "he's a pedo" character assassination thing by the media. He chose not to do anything except bitch and moan. If there's one thing that conservatives and moderates don't like, it's someone who keeps saying "woe is me."

He already has a drag queen thing going on.

The novelty of Milo wore off post-2016 because he was a one trick pony- being a provocative gay Neocon.

Think about it: nowadays there are more people in the LGBT wiling to “come out” as being to the right of Stalin. And many of them also offer entertainment outside of politics on their channels and whatnot.

Plus, there’s a lot of avenues Conservatives can go to for hearing their opinions from minority groups these days.

Milo can’t compete with the competition because his humour hasn’t moved on. Sure, it’s hard to keep up with social media and whatnot, but he could have at least tried to adjust to current year after 2016.

Null talked about this a while ago that the faggot was in debt and also has to pay for an aids cocktail. I guess living a subversive lifestyle of non-monogamous sex, sniffing crack off of dudes asses in seedy night clubs/questionable yacht parties with young boys and just being a one note internet icon who spends money like its endless leaves much to be desired. Maybe putting out actual content would have been better. I guess going back to square one suits him on his knees like a bitch. No sympy you reap what you sow.

His most horrid offense was being conservative.

His most horrid offense was being an untalented cunty hack. Period. Also, he was NEVER conservative. He has no closely held personal beliefs, you can believe that. He is in it for Milo and saw a hole in a very messy market. He thought he could be a "token" to the conservative movement, say controversial things, and most of all get money and attention...and he did. However, being a professional token is a short lived business and if you have literally nothing of substance to lend to the conversation or the causes you're trying to promote then you are officially useless. Frankly, the conservative movement should be grateful that he was "deplatformed". Who would want to be represented by that fuck up?

Milo is a fuck up because he's a cunt. People finally cottoned on to him being a grifting useless cunt and appropriately dropped the piece of shit in the dog park where he belonged all along.

Ha, really? I've never seen that. How did he scam his own audience?

His entire professional history seems like these large waves of success and failure, and certainly his own hand can be seen in some of those failures. It looks to me like he has self-destructive tendencies.
I know his paywall podcast stopped delivering at a certain point when Milo just couldn't do it anymore. He says he wasn't good at it, being a talking head interviewer, and he was so miserable and terrible at it that he gave up on it. He promised to deliver something of value to the people who had paid for it... I think it was copies of his forthcoming book or something, and in some cases some other out-of-print stuff. I don't know if he did all that. That's just one example I'm aware of.

Again, I can't tell if he's a grifter or not. Like you said, he might really just be someone with huge issues who self-destructs when he's becoming successful. And you know how polarizing figures are... people who hate him will always say he's consciously stealing money no matter what.

But regardless, I do know there's no functional difference between a scam artist and a guy who earnestly keeps losing your money... so he's not getting any more from me. (I bought a copy of Dangerous a few years ago. What can I say... the guy is a talented writer. I got my money's worth, but that's all he's getting from me.)
