Milo Yiannopoulos

Just days after mocking victims of Hurricane Irma, Milo Yiannopoulos claims his Miami home was destroyed in the storm.

The former Breitbart editor and controversial alt-right leader wrote on Facebook that “my house is gone,” along with a photo of wreckage in Miami Beach.

The house in question, however, doesn’t belong to Yiannopoulos, according to the Miami Herald, but instead a man named Gerard Duhart.

In the days leading up to the deadly storm, Yiannopoulos poked fun at the people in the hurricane’s path.

"In more positive Irma news, Richard Branson's Necker Island has been devastated,” he wrote on Facebook on Thursday.

"Irma is about to finish what Hillary started: leaving Haiti in ruins,” he posted Wednesday.

Couldn't happen to a nicer, or more appropriate, guy.

Yup. I won't be crying in my beer for his loss.

Except, if I read the quote correctly, it isn't his house at all. It belongs to one Gerard Duhart.

Which makes his story even weirder...

Follow up:

I assumed he was renting the place and that was why it wasn't in his name, but that is not the case. The house that was destroyed has nothing to do with him.

From the Miami Herald:

Quote

So anyhoo. YEAH. That house that got dessimated does most definitely not belong to Yiannopoulos.

The Miami Herald found the place, and it’s in Edgewater, at Northeast 27th Street and Fifth Avenue, which is close but definitely not the Brickell neighborhood where it was rumored to be on social media.

Reporter David Smiley spoke to a neighbor who witnessed the drama unfold and it turns out the property belongs to a guy named Gerard Duhart, who had evacuated ahead of the storm.

So no, this wreck of a place does not belong to Milo, so don’t be fooled and DON’T FEEL BAD FOR HIM.

[...]

We do know Yiannopoulos, who has been banned on Twitter over harassing Tweets, has a place here. In April Breitbart reported he was launching a media venture out of the Magic City. According to a statement, the $12 million dollar media company, MILO, Inc. “isn’t some vanity nameplate on a personal blog. This is a fully tooled-up talent factory and management company dedicated to the destruction of political correctness and the progressive left.”

Sorry for the confusion, everyone.

Controversial conservative personality Milo Yiannopoulos now says he was only joking when he claimed on social media that a Miami house demolished by Hurricane Irma was his in an apparent bid to draw attention to himself in the midst of a national emergency.

"It's a joke, not a dick, but apparently you can't get either," Yiannopoulos wrote to Newsweek in response to a reporter's question about the Instagram and Facebook post—which showed someone else's house losing its roof to high winds.

He then insulted the reporter's appearance.

[...]

In April, he announced the launch of Milo Inc., a media company aimed at "making the lives of journalists, professors, politicians, feminists, Black Lives Matter activists and other professional victims a living hell," as he told Vanity Fair. The business reportedly had $12 million worth of support from investors and was set to be based in Miami with more than two dozen employees.

He threw a party in Miami in May to promote the venture, though the Miami New Times reported that records indicate Milo Inc. is actually incorporated in Boca Raton.

It's not the first time that Yiannopoulos has stirred up drama. Last summer, he was permanently banned from Twitter after he led racist attacks on comedian Leslie Jones. Earlier this year, he resigned from Breitbart when he was caught on tape saying that relationships "between younger boys and older men … can be hugely positive experiences." And in February, the University of California, Berkeley canceled a planned speech by Yiannopoulos after protests before the event caused $100,000 in damage to campus.

 I'm sure most of you are familiar with the expression "The enemy of my enemy is my friend", and how blindly following that advice can lead to complete disaster. I'm still scratching my head over how an openly gay promiscuous man became the new torchbearer for many on the right. 

We definitely live in interesting times, my friends.

Milo is suing Simon & Schuster for dropping his  book and the manuscript with editor's comments is available online, to prove they thought it was a shitty book. 

Some highlights here and in the Twitter thread below.

"Though I have lost five inches off  my waist over the last six months..."

This sounds like pretty heroic personal trainer / dieting effort (raw spinach for breakfast huh? no wonder he's so miserable)  but...

Quote

As part of his preparation to dip back into the mainstream again, Milo has been going through an absurd makeover: He had liposuction on his stomach in July to look thinner, which cost him $28,000. He then squeezed bits of the excess fat into his glutes.

My legal education of watching courtroom dramas may not be worth much, but it did impress upon me that representing yourself in court doesn't usually end well.

Milo's lawyers divorced him, due to "irreconcilable differences."  This is so beyond delicious! 

TalkingPointsMemo.com:  Yiannopoulos Dumped By Own Lawyers In Suit Against Simon & Schuster (Allegra Kirkland | January 8, 2018 2:34 pm)

Quote

In a Monday filing in New York State Supreme Court, Stephen Meister and Jeffrey Weingart of Manhattan firm Meister Seelig & Fein formally announced that they were withdrawing as counsel for Yiannopoulos.

In a previous filing, Weingart attributed the split to a “breakdown” in the attorney-client relationship, citing Yiannopoulos’ insistence on “pursuing actions” with which his attorneys had a “fundamental disagreement.” Weingart also cited “irreconcilable differences” between attorney and client which he said he could not expand on because of confidentiality concerns.

Milo Yiannopoulos charity for white men a white man closes with questions about where the money went

Reread his daily regimen.  Personal trainer/valet, staff in Europe, expensive lotions, potions, hair spray, serums.  He didn't mention manicure, pedicure, manscaping, massage, facials but you know he needs all that. This is a guy with a high burn rate.

I know, right?  Spruiking vitamins on InfoWars isn't a six-figure gig and that mansion in Florida isn't paying for itself.  Maybe he can move in with Rush.  Rush lives in Florida in a mansion and has a big studio.  Live over the garage and flog vitamins!  win win

He needs to act now, though, or he's going to be living out of his car and drinking tap water.

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
