Milo Yiannopoulos Confounds Bill Maher [Full Video]

Milo+Yiannopoulos" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Milo Yiannopoulos loves riling all the right (actually the Left) people. Bill Maher seemed bemused in the face of a man who is actually politically incorrect–something Maher ceased being many moons ago. 

Milo admitted to Maher that he wasn’t really a conservative, but then, neither is Donald Trump. He said that he’s a single-issue guy. He’s concerned about free speech. He hates political correctness. He hates the puritanical restrictions on what can and cannot be said.

One of the best moments of the interview comes at the beginning when Milo says that he wouldn’t hire a gay person or a woman. “They’re too unreliable,” he quips impishly. There was an audible gasp from the the audience and then Milo grinned in glee. For Bill Maher, the political incorrectness of that statement was too much even for him.

Bill tried to make the distinction about humor and saying the truth, which is good, with being mean for no reason. He asserted that he tried not to hurt people, but used his humor, sometimes mean, to prove a point. (This is laughable, by the way. He’s mean and small and ungracious and not that funny. See also Palin, Sarah.) It’s just that Bill is concerned about whose ox is being gored. He, like all liberals, has his favorite protected targets. They’re not the same ones as Milo’s. He’s fine with mean humor as long as it’s pointed at his ideological enemies. He doesn’t mind going personal and trying to hurt someone for a cheap laugh even if it’s not funny and serves no other purpose than being puerile and base.

Maher risks nothing with his humor. He’s part of the protected class. He thinks the right thoughts; says the right things. He’s the in-crowd. Milo, takes a risk. He’s cast off social media platforms. His life is endangered. He’s outside the entertainment world while managing to dominate it anyway.

The video is worth watching just to see Bill Maher squirm.

Some of my True Conservative compatriots are offended by Milo. They honestly don’t get the appeal and believe he’s doing damage to the cause. In an upcoming post, I’ll write about what I think Milo is really up to and why conservatives should be glad he’s fighting the fight he’s fighting.
