Milo regrets nothing

Milo Yiannopoulos was wishing gun slaughter on journalists the other day, just in time to be ahead of the actual mass gun slaughter of journalists yesterday.

Milo Yiannopoulos encouraged vigilantes to start “gunning journalists down” just two days before a Maryland newspaper was targeted in a shooting that killed five people.

Yiannopoulos, the prominent right-wing figure who used to work as a senior editor at the far-right news website Breitbart, told the US news website Observer over text message: “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight.”

He was responding to a request about a longer feature about a restaurant he is said to frequent, according to the outlet. When asked to elaborate by the Observer, Yiannopoulos said the statement was his “standard response to a request for comment.”

With his usual taste and generosity, he posted a picture of himself with a gun and a sneer.
