Milo Yiannopoulos' false narratives and liberals cherry picking the left.
By Lloyd Hart
Milo Yiannopoulos, like most inexperienced intellects propose false narratives too attack ideas like feminism. Milo Yiannopoulos proposes that feminism has become a man oppressing, man hating, angry movement. This of course is a false narrative. Milo Yiannopoulos has clearly grown up in societies where women get paid less than men for the same work and have too work harder than men for what women do get paid and do not fill 50% of legislatives seats or any where near it.
Milo Yiannopoulos I think is mistaking the justified anger of women for being treated as second class citizens as a broad conspiracy of hatred toward men. The only purpose Milo Yiannopoulos is playing in our society right now is to deepen my commitment to feminism an open up another round of debates which are good things.
I saw it in my Union Local, Carpenters Union Local 40 Cambridge, MA. When the women in our local show up to work they are not casting about the evil caused by lower wages and the exhaustion of having to work harder than men.
But we cannot condemn Milo Yiannopoulos or Breitbart for having their opinions. We simply must constantly keep the debate open 24/7/365. I woke this morning with these thoughts and was glad for the opportunity to write them up in the hope that people would calm themselves and counter Milo Yiannopoulos's false narratives with the wit and brevity and good humor that do more to kill bad ideas than over the top emotionally driven mass protests that get taken advantage of by Yiannopoulos and Breitbart.
A day before UC Berkley professor Robert Reich got all over the media proposing that those property destroyers at Yiannopoulos' discussion at UC Berkley were not actually Black Block I posted the same theory on my Facebook page. Now granted, I have interviewed Robert in the past for Free Speech TV and post his videos on my page. We however did not discuss the content of what he was proposing in the media about the men in black at UC Berkley before hand but he clearly read what I proposed and got it all over the media. The reason CNN didn't ask me on to discuss this is 1. I am black listed for my writings and 2. I am Black Block.
If Milo Yiannopoulos had too debate me, his book sales would collapse instead of sky rocket after a UC Berkley discussion just as I undid the Breitbart/O'keefe's ridiculous false narrative attack on ACORN in the fall of 2008 making Senator John McCain look like an idiot in a presidential debate.
I used to delight watching William F. Buckley Jr. spin false narratives which his counterparts sometimes had a hard time undoing. I couldn't wait to sit down with Buckley Jr. and slap down his false narratives but unfortunately I didn't get there before he died.
Unfortunately being black listed in America causes writers like me to be cherry picked by people like Robert just as the black listed Hollywood writers in the 1950s, a decade completely dedicated to false narratives, had to write through surrogates to make any money to survive the Oppression of the Person by the FBI. The thing is, is when you are black listed in America you are black listed by both democrats and republicans.
The only reason David Swanson and many others cherry picked the article I wrote totally knocking down the Breitbart/O'keefe attack on ACORN in 2008 was because it was perceived to help democrats. The Irony is of course is that the democrats and Obama defunded ACORN, the best minority voter registration coalition in America in 2009 anyway and setting course for where we are today with liberals standing in a corner by themselves still cherry picking the people they have alienated and black listed who are America's true intellects.
I love Robert and support getting out the message by whatever means but he needs to also attack the intellectual dishonesty of democrats running black lists preventing a proper debate with proper intellects against false narratives and the down right plagiarism of liberals cherry picking the real left.
