Alt-Right Advocate Known for Racist Trolling Marries a Black Man

Milo Yiannopoulos, who was banned from Twitter following his incitement of racist tweets against Leslie Jones, announced his marriage on Instagram.

For years, Milo Yiannopoulos has notoriously used social media to promote an alt-right agenda by bashing Muslims, Black Lives Matter activists and feminists, and perpetuating racist trolling against Blacks, including comedian Leslie Jones. The self-proclaimed conservative "gay exceptionalist" even used the Internet to bash gay rights.

But it seems Yiannopoulos, a former Breitbart News employee who hosted a "Gays for Trump" party in 2016, may not practice everything he preaches. He announced in Instagram posts that he wed his boyfriend — who is Black — on Saturday.

In one photo his groom, only identified as "John," has his back facing the camera showcasing the words "Blind for Love" on the back of his suit jacket. Another photo shows the couple pouring champagne into a tower of glasses.

Yiannopoulos' penchant for racist trolling got him permanently suspended from Twitter in July 2016. He began insulting "Saturday Night Live" comedian Leslie Jones and then provoked his followers (he had more than 300,000) to troll her as well.

At first Jones blocked the tweets, but then she began retweeting them to show the interactions. Yiannopoulos' followers compared Jones to Harambe, the gorilla killed at the Cincinnati Zoo, and made a slew of other derogatory comments.

Yiannopoulos was temporarily banned from Twitter several times prior for violating the company's terms of service through offensive tweets, which often fanned political tensions.

He is a former senior editor at Breitbart News, the far-right website where ousted White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon, the force behind Trump's most contentious policies, including his Muslim ban, returned as executive chairman in August.

Yiannopoulos and his groom chose to marry in Hawaii, where same-gender marriage was legalized in 2013. Two years later, the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-gender marriage nationwide.

In 2015, a week before the Court's ruling, he wrote a Breitbart column titled, "Gay Rights Have Made Us Dumber, It's Time To Get Back in the Closet."

"Forcing gays back into the closet solves the problem of what happens to children when they have two dads or two moms," he wrote.

"The good news is that gay rights are in the minority, globally speaking. China, India and most of all Russia, proudly celebrate the importance of the nuclear family."

In July 2016, during the presidential campaign, Yiannopoulos participated in a "Gays for Trump" party in Cleveland and posted a video of the event on his YouTube page.

"It's no secret that Donald Trump is the most LGBT-friendly presidential candidate the GOP has ever fielded, and one of the most gay friendly presidential hopefuls of all time," Yiannopoulos, who has referred to himself as the "glittering leading light of the conservative gay movement," wrote in a column last year.

The Trump administration has not exactly been "gay friendly." Almost immediately following Trump being sworn into office on Jan. 23, all references to LGBTQ rights on the White House website were deleted. On July 26, Trump announced that transgender people would not be allowed to serve in any capacity in the military. And, on the same day, the Department of Justice, led by Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, said that sexual orientation is not a basis to protect someone from discrimination in the workplace.

In February, Simon & Schuster canceled the publication of Yiannopoulos' book "Dangerous" after podcasts surfaced in which he made questionable comments about pedophilia. He then resigned from Breitbart.

"Milo Yiannopoulos' bold voice has sparked much-needed debate on important cultural topics confronting universities, the LGBTQ community, the press, and the tech industry," Breitbart said in a statement following his resignation.

That same month, college students at the University of California at Berkeley did not want to hear Yiannopoulos' political rhetoric. Violent protests took place in opposition of his planned campus speech. The university cancelled his scheduled appearance.

Trump threatened to cut funds for the Berkeley campus in a Twitter posting accusing the institution of failing to support free speech and practicing violence against innocent people. At the time, Bannon was still his chief strategist.

Yiannopoulos self-published his book, "Dangerous," in July and is suing Simon & Schuster for $10 million.

Bootlickers Continue Their Synchronized Licking

Politics trump ethics for so-called "religious" so-called "leaders." Children screwed over.

Evangelist Franklin Graham, son of the late Billy Graham, might be disturbed by the images and audio of children crying after being separated from their parents after they are detained crossing the U.S. border. However, because Graham has been among President Trump's strongest supporters, he's not blaming the current administration.

Trump signs executive order to keep families together at border, says 'zero-tolerance' prosecution policy will continue.

The New York Times reports that the new executive order seeks to modify that existing consent decree in order to keep parents and children together in detention. However, Amnesty International says that those detentions could now be indefinite.

"Make no mistake—this executive order is a betrayal of families fleeing violence and persecution," Denise Bell, refugee and migrant rights researcher at Amnesty International USA said in a statement.

"Mothers, fathers, and children must not be held behind bars for prolonged periods for seeking safety. Not only does imprisoning children go against our country's shared values of dignity and equality, but it is also unlawful and threatens to permanently stain the U.S. human rights record."

ORIGINAL STORY

During an early afternoon meeting on Wednesday with members of Congress at the White House, President Donald Trump reportedly was going to announce an end to a major crisis in which migrant families are being separated after they are detained crossing the U.S. border.

Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist, said that slain civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be "proud" of what President Donald Trump has done for Blacks and Latinos in the U.S.

Bannon was the CEO of Trump's presidential campaign. Trump gained supporters by calling Mexicans rapists, committing to building a wall between Mexico and the U.S., allowing Black people to be physically assaulted at his rallies and lightly disavowing the support of white supremacists.

"Martin Luther King ... he would be proud of what Donald Trump has done for [the] Black and Hispanic working class, okay?" Bannon said on "This Week" Sunday.

On Sunday, King's daughter, Bernice King, CEO of The King Center, re-tweeted a post from The Washington Post reporter Eugene Scott who referenced a similar claim Bannon had made previously. She included a response, simply stating: “Absolutely not."

In May, King tweeted:

Bannon said in March at an event with far-right French politicians that they should "wear" accusations of racism "as a badge of honor."

Let them call you racist. Let them call you xenophobes," he said. “Let them call you nativists. Wear it as a badge of honor. Because every day, we get stronger and they get weaker."

Bannon said on Sunday that he was “talking specifically about Donald Trump and his policies."

“His economic nationalism doesn't care about your race, your religion, your gender, your sexual preference," he said.

The Trump administration's “zero tolerance" immigration policy is currently separating children of undocumented immigrants from their mothers and fathers.

King tweeted on Sunday:
