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 figure it's only a matter of time until he's poor enough to be recruited by some left-leaning think tank, where he will denounce the alt-right and claim to give away all their secrets as "a former member" in exchange for a decent living.
Incidentally, that’s what Caolyn Robertson has been doing lately.

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.)
You know he used ghost writers, right? You didn't really spend money on him, right? Milo is a grifter pure and simple. He's not even particularly good at it or he'd have another scheme waiting in the wings when one goes sour. He saw a "platform" where he could be cunt and a token for a cause he couldn't give a watery shit about and folks fell over themselves to listen to his drivel. He, himself, has no original ideas and can't hold his own in a debate against a piece of paper. I'm sorry if you gave him money, hopefully that's a good lesson in seeing through horseshit.

So here's the thing: I was a fan of Milo's back in 2015-2016. Never gave him money, but I do remember watching every single stream from his college campus tour. I think that the tour was ingenious, considering the exceptional individuals who showed up to protest (Triggly Puff is still one of my favorite internet moments of all time). Milo basially put a spotlight on this kind of behavior, which, I think, definitely motivated a lot of young people to leave the left and/or to become more invested in politics. The left's behavior is what turned me from a jaded center-right conservative (who was also a #NeverTrump person) to a Trump voter in 2016, to be quite frank. I think that Milo's area of expertise back then was simply shining a light on the so-called "tolerant left," and how he bit back at them. It was cathartic to witness, as someone who isn't on the left. It's SO easy to see how he had a following.

Milo's approach to things back then was definitely useful. Love him or hate him, there shouldn't be any denying that he was relevant leading up to the 2016 election. To me, it's no question.

So. That said, as someone who was a former fan of his, I think that the questions about whether he scams his fans are legit. Where did that money go for the "Privilege Grant"? And what happened with all of these things he promised while he was asking fans for more money? Honestly, if Milo was going to get canceled or deplatformed, it should have been because of this stuff ... And not because of his conservatism.

I get it: I imagine the dude needs security, and that ain't cheap ... But then I see the extravagant things he puts his money towards, and I can't help but scratch my head about it. Perhaps if we saw that he actually has put the money towards things he's actually working on, then I'd understand a bit more ... But I'm not seeing that at all.

Personally, I'd much rather see Milo's "haters" hit him hard on the very possible scamming of his fans ... Rather than the "REEEE! I disagree with him, so I'm going to call him a Nazi!" shit. I'd feel much better about the deplatforming based on that.

Milo got cancelled by the right, not the left. He was supposed to headline some conservative event, and the National Review set decided that they needed to axe him to try and keep the Trump Republicans from becoming the face of the party. They failed at the latter, but succeeded at the former. The guy's a good performer, but a performer ain't shit without a production team and there's no one who will back him right now. Maybe even never.

Anyone getting uppity at a journalist being trolled is just trying to be angry on purpose.
I think it’s more disappointment in how unfunny his texts were. Milo can be very funny. Or at least he could back in the day.

As for him showing receipts asking for $20k and him not getting $20k, that kinda proves no one is willing to pay him $20k. I could say my rate is $1mm for BBC anal on cam. Doesn’t mean anyone is going to pay me that.

Milo is absolutely the kind of arrogant twat who never comes down from the high of his own bullshit. Deplatforming is absolutely awful and I oppose it completely. Fact is, it’s up to provocateurs to figure out how to market themselves in reality as it is, not how they wish it was. Creators who put all or most of their effort into creating free content and user signups for corporations’ social platforms always knew those were resources diverted from building their own platforms. Multi-billion dollar brands can’t rely on earned media. Neither can small fry individuals. This is not unknown.

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.
This is a big thing that separates them from Trump, who they both like to use as justification for their own behavior. Compare Trump in the primaries, especially the early primaries, to Trump in the general election. He acts pretty outrageous compared to a more traditional politician, but he knows when he needs to reel it back. There's a method to the madness. Milo and Sargon have no concept of such a thing because they're both stuck in a permanent teenager mindset and have never handled anything that required real responsibility.

Maybe Milo should have thought about "how to put food on my table" before he started buying ten thousand dollar suits, snorting coke off of black guy's dicks, and scamming people with utter inane bullshit.
Milo reminds me of anthony scaramucci. He can't just chill the fuck out and hold it steady. They have to go off the deep end with coke, booze, and retarded behavior that had nothing to do with what got them there in the 1st place.
All they had to do was find their cruising altitude and hold it steady. But nope they get a little bit of fame and they spill their spaghetti. Typical drug addict shit.

Ben shapiro is on syndicated radio now. I hear him on the same station that plays rush limbaugh. Boring but it pays the bills.
Being top of the E-fame shitpile doesn't matter. Finding a reliable gig does.

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?

He's basically this movie IRL. He garnered a lot of funny reactions around the 2016 election season, but that's about it. Oh, and he also has a very nice voice. But, yeah, his whole schtick is being edgy and pushing buttons in Clown World, going all "look everyone I'm a gay guy who fucks black dudes and I love Trump" and watching the ever-predictable REEEing ensue.

But lmao @ anyone who would ever give him a dime.

Milo got cancelled by the right because he's mentally sick and advocates pederasty so as to rationalize his experiences as somehow acceptable. He doesn't need a platform he needs therapy.

So ... I had just assumed that YouTube banned Milo's channel, too. Turns out that's not the case at all. He has almost 900,000 subs on that channel.

Why doesn't he make more content for his YouTube, then?! Almost a million followers is a pretty big fucking following, if you ask me! Why is he whining so much about the small following he has on other platforms? He could even post shit on Bitchute, and advertise that on his YouTube.

Granted, I bet Milo wouldn't make any money from YouTube directly, but guess what? Neither does Steven Crowder these days, and yet he still reaches out to that audience (he's going to end up with 5 MILLION subs soon), which serves as a big ad for people to subcribe to his Mug Club dealy outside of YouTube. That's why Crowder is successful, and continues to have his success and outreach grow.

Milo, it's not impossible. You're just choosing to paint yourself as a perpetual victim while panhandling and not doing the work. My goodness.

If he'd put as much effort into his epigrams as his wardrobe he'd still have a career as a wit. Unfortunately, he put in a half-assed effort and is known only as a half-wit.
A mutual contact said to me a couple years ago, after I told him not to believe the hype about Milo’s supposed “wealth,” that he saw Milo with Louis Vuitton shopping bags so EXPLAIN THAT!!! I did so. Not long after, Milo was crying about his financial straits.

He’s a showy motherfucker. Ultimately all he showed was himself into poverty. “I can’t put food on the table” lol get a fucking job. He really expects working class conservatives to pay for his foie gras. :story:

It's pretty normal for victims of abuse to rationalize their abuse until they're in a place where they can really understand it. For example, those Michael Jackson ppl from Leaving Neverland had to have children of their own before they really understood what had been done to them. I'm p sure figuring all that shit out is why Milo disappeared for 2 years.

He seems like he's about as competent a show runner as Jessie Ventura, whose RT show is basically just him sitting in front of a desk while a team of people work the knobs and ask his opinion on the topics of the day.

Milo surrounded himself with eager young underlings who did almost everything for him. JV’s setup described above is the extent of what Milo is capable of.

He had a very cushy situation with the Mercers. He thought it would always be that easy. He was wrong. Milo has been double fisting himself in the butt for a long time. Yet it’s everyone else’s fault he can’t shop at Vuitton anymore or eat out at Michelin starred restaurants every night. It’s NOT FAIR.

Sound familiar? Milo came by his thread here honestly. Anyone who feels sorry for him is shit-your-pants stupid.
