Milo Yiannopoulos, who says he’s struggling to put food on the table, leaks racist audio of fellow alt-right activist
Milo Yiannopoulos, the disgraced former editor of Breitbart and mascot of Boston’s Straight Pride parade, has leaked an explicit, racist recording of fellow far-right activist Richard Spencer.
Yiannopoulos was permanently banned from Twitter and Facebook for violating hate speech rules, and is now relegated to fringe social media platforms where he is struggling to gain a following. In September he threatened to leave social media entirely as he cannot “put food on the table”.
In contrast, Spencer has not been deplatformed and remains active on social media – which may be why Yiannopoulos has turned against him.
In a post on FreeSpeech.tv, Yiannopolous released a horrifying rant which he claims was recorded at an “emergency meeting” in Charlottesville, Virginia, after a peaceful protester named Heather Heyer killed by a neo-Nazi.
The audio recording – which includes explicit, offensive, racially-charged language – shows Spencer raging at black and Jewish people after Heyer’s murder.
He says: “We are coming back here like a f**king hundred times. I am so mad. I am so f**king mad at these people. They don’t do this to f**king me.
“We’re going to f**king ritualistically humiliate them. I am coming back here every f**king weekend if I have to. Like, this is never over! I win! They f**king lose! That’s how the world f**king works.
“Little f**king k*kes. They get ruled by people like me. Little fucking octaroons. I f**king – my ancestors f**king enslaved those fucking pieces of sh*t. I rule the f**king world. Those pieces of sh*t get ruled by people like me. They look up and see a face like mine looking down at them. That’s how the f**king world works. We are going to destroy this f**king town.”
Yiannopolous’ final words make clear his motivation for leaking the recording.
“Spencer, who advocates for ‘peaceful ethnic cleansing’ of the United States, is widely rumoured among journalists to be a Central Intelligence Agency asset. He has received lavish profiles and glamorising coverage in major mainstream publications,” he writes.
“Along with former Grand Wizard of the KKK, David Duke, Richard Spencer remains active on social media, including Twitter.
“Spencer was invited to appear on CNN in July. Meanwhile, centre-right conservatives such as Gavin McInnes, Roger Stone and Laura Loomer remain on media blacklists and banned from all major social networks and payment platforms.”
They say misery loves company, and it looks like cash-strapped Milo is no exception.
