The thought police are running rampant in America. Those that walk the progressive line are allowed to thrive, while any dissenters are purged. It’s happening everyday on social media and one of its latest victims is the always provocative and outspoken conservative Breitbart tech editor, Milo Yiannopoulos.

He was recently banned for life from Twitter after panning the new, pro-feminist Ghostbusters movie and criticizing one of its stars, Leslie Jones. It was Jones, a black actress and cast member of Saturday Night Live, who reported the flamboyant Yiannopoulos for abuse.

His messages on Twitter (some of them below) are credited by social justice warriors as stirring a hornets nest of racist comments that were aimed at Jones by other Twitter users:

Yiannopoulos, who is openly gay, was unrepentant in a recent interview with CNN and declared that he isn’t responsible for policing what others say. He condemned the racist images and messages that were sent to Jones, but he also advised the rising Hollywood star to find something better to do than sit at home reading Twitter messages from complete strangers.

As for Milo, he’s staying the course.

“My purpose is to be a fire starter,” he told CNN. “In an outrage culture, I think the appropriate response is to be outrageous, because what I want to do is smash political correctness.”

When he was asked to give a response for the people who have called his tweets offensive, he said, “Good. If I offended you, that’s me performing my function and you should grow a thicker skin and grow up. And so long as there are people who think that ‘offense-taking’ and ‘having grievances’ is equivalent to some genuine kind of injury, I’m still necessary.”

“But so long as there is a politics in this country as there is, where people can turn victimhood and grievance into currency,” he added, “I will continue to be as offensive as possible.”

The fall of @Nero, as he was known on Twitter, began during his 2016 “Dangerous Faggot Tour.” Yiannopoulos traveled to campuses across America charged with his mission to “smash political correctness.” And at each stop, he was met with an angry mob of intolerant, and often violent, progressives who loudly disrupted his speeches. In many cases, the events were shut down to avoid further escalations from protesters who undoubtedly believed they have exclusive rights to free speech.

But what the actions of these social justice snowflakes actually reveals is something far more sinister.

Being banned from Twitter, or silenced on campus, is the essence of fascism. Our culture, led by progressive universities, politics and celebrities, seeks to control thought, control speech and then stifle even the slightest dissent from the approved message. It runs through art, music, literature, politics, religion, business, you name it.

Like Yiannopoulos, I will never comply. I will never kneel before the false throne of fascist secularism. This is the reason I love Milo Yiannopoulos. His defiance throws this garbage right back in their faces.
