9 Ultranationalist Trump Supporters Who Are Rapidly Losing Patience With His Presidency

For the first few months of Trump’s presidency, this unholy confederacy has largely kept in formation. But in the wake of Trump’s recent Tomahawk strike on a Syrian air field, it has begun to splinter, with the president drawing the ire of some of his most loyal troops: the Pepe brigade known as the “alt-right.” Now that he has all but banished former Breitbart chair Steve Bannon from the West Wing, Trump could soon be facing a full-fledged mutiny.

5 Ways Republicans Reaffirmed Their Awfulness This Week

The GOP has been an absolute nightmare since about 1964, and this administration is just the least polished turd of the modern era. Trump couldn’t fulfill his vision without the party onboard. Good thing they don’t have any actual decency or ethics to stop them from going with the program.

How A 16-Year-Old Canadian Girl Brought Down Milo Yiannopoulos

At this time last week, Milo Yiannopoulos’ highlights were glowing especially bright. Then came the fall, thanks in no small part to a “socially liberal, fiscally conservative” 16-year-old from Canada identified only as “Julia.”

How CPAC Is Trying To Wash The ‘Alt-Right’ Stench Off Breitbart

A “fringe element” is now in the White House. But direct association with racists and misogynists isn’t great for the conservative movement’s brand — or Breitbart’s bottom line. So the organizers of this week’s annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) are working hard to redefine the term “alt-right” in order to retroactively separate that movement from the White House and the website.

Yiannopoulos Debacle Tells Us Some Terrible Truths About The Right

At every turn, the right has lauded Yiannopoulos as a free-speech hero, while disregarding his attacks on the most vulnerable of targets. But with bad PR and profit losses on the table, the entities that were so ready to sign up with Yiannopoulos are pretending to be surprised an awful person turned out to be exactly what he seemed.

Milo Yiannopoulos Silenced: Provocateur Resigns From Breitbart

Given that Breitbart is a sewer with no standards, Yiannopoulos leaving would suggest that the website, amid a major advertiser boycott, has finally found a limit to the bad press it is willing to tolerate from one of its biggest stars.

CPAC Rescinds Yiannopoulos’ Invite Following Pedophilia Comments

“We continue to believe that CPAC is a constructive forum for controversies and disagreements among conservatives, however there is no disagreement among our attendees on the evils of sexual abuse of children,” Matt Schlapp, president of the American Conservative Union, the event’s organizer, said in a statement, as reported by CNN.

Alt-Right Troll Milo Yiannopoulos Slammed For Defending Pedophilia

Milo Yiannopoulos was seen normalizing pedophilia in a video that includes an interview with comedian Joe Rogan in 2015 where he had discussed his sexual relationship with “Father Michael,” which he allegedly had when he was 14. In the interview Milo is seen asking Rogan “So you’re saying you’ve never seen a 15-year-old girl, at any point in your life, that you thought was hot?”

President Trump Threatens U.C. Berkeley After Protests Stop Far-Right Speech

U.S. President Donald Trump threatened on Thursday to cut funding to the University of California at Berkeley after protesters smashed windows and set fires at the liberal-leaning school, forcing the cancellation of an appearance by a far-right Breitbart editor.

Yes, Political Boycotts Are A Form Of Free Speech

Obviously, there are effective boycotts and ineffective ones, stupid boycotts and well-directed ones, boycotts by the right, left and middle. The point here is that for whatever reason, a person has a right to withhold his or her custom. A consumer boycott does not muzzle anyone. Freedom of speech doesn’t end at the cash register.

Misinformer Of The Year: The Ecosystem Of Fake News And The ‘Alt-Right’

There’s never been such a challenging time to be an informed citizen. The fake news ecosystem is feeding into the worst instincts of humanity while punishing anyone who dares stand up against them — and soon there will be a president who will validate those feelings.

The Trump Campaign Is Now Fully Aligned With White Supremacists

Time was when one could sum up the connections of Donald J. Trump, Republican Party standard-bearer and King of the Twitterverse, to avowed white supremacists and right-wing white nationalists in a few retweets from the @realDonaldTrump account.
