A neo-nazi website is targeting Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos for insisting the alt-right movement isn’t racist.
“He is our arch-nemesis,” writes The Daily Stormer Publisher Andrew Anglin last week. “We need to stop this kike.”
The alt-right movement is commonly understood as an alternative to the current conservative paradigm, opposing multiculturalism and globalism. To The Daily Stormer, Yiannopoulous is trying to rebrand the movement away from its racist and anti-Semitic origins.
The article spews anti-Semitic slurs at the Breitbart Tech Editor, who is Catholic with Jewish ancestry. They claim he is “relabeling an existing movement” — the alt-right movement — and they wish to “push back and say ‘no it is definitely a racist movement — we are racists.’”
“He is taking our brand, our symbols, and turning them against us for a neocon-Jew conservative agenda. He is rewriting our narrative, while taking everything that we have created to use for his own KIKE purposes.”
The Daily Stormer provides a three-step plan to challenge Yiannopoulos. They encourage all of their readers to visit his public speaking events (even including a list of his tour dates) and hammer him with questions such as: “When will you be giving out the money you took for the White privilege college tuition fund? I read on the #1 Alt-Right website the Daily Stormer that you stole it.”
They also want all of the Q&As to be recorded and put on YouTube to “show his people that the real Alt-Right exists and that we despise him, that the hoax Alt-Right he’s created doesn’t exist.”
And for post-show events, the site asks event attendees to “question him further” to get him “looking rattled” and film it because “he is a drug addict and will have a hard time interacting with you in an off-stage environment.”
“Force him into being unable to do something snarky. Making him uncomfortable is good, making him defend mainstream liberal positions on racism and anti-Semitism is better. Defending the mainstream makes him look weak and pathetic, yet he has already defined his positions — or defined our positions? — as a form of liberalism.”
Last week, Yiannopoulos planned to speak at Florida Atlantic University as a part of his “Dangerous Faggot Tour,” but had to cancel due to a bomb threat .
Yiannopoulos told SFGN following the cancellation: "Obviously if I were in charge, I'd speak at all campuses regardless of the threats. But unfortunately I can't veto security concerns and the safety of students must come first — their actual physical safety that is, not insulation from dangerous ideas."
Breitbart reported on the cancellation and mentioned The Daily Stormer’s “holy crusade,” possibly insinuating a connection to the threats. CBS12 also reported that the threats were indisputably from The Daily Stormer, pointing to an edited photo of a gun to Yiannopoulos’s head posted by a commenter.
The neo-nazi website shot back on Friday, refuting the accusations and charging right back.
“What appears to have happened here is that [the CBS writer] saw the article on Breitbart that obliquely intimated that maybe one of us did it (given that there was a closeness in the timeframe), misunderstood and thought they were saying we were definitely responsible for it, then went to my article and saw that Pepe meme and decided that was the cause.”
Instead of threatening Yiannopoulos, the site wants readers to prevent him from playing the “victim” by instead “confront[ing] him with words.”
“He will also be in a state of constant fear when he knows that real Nazis are going to show-up at every show and confront him. That there is nowhere to run.”
