Fear not, conservatives, tell it like it is

Fear not, conservatives, tell it like it is, by Milo Yiannopoulos.

Conspiracy theories are taking hold of Western civilisation. Angry, middle-aged feminists — beloved by journalists, hated by the rest of us for their hectoring tone and perhaps for the stench of cat urine and disappointment that follows them everywhere — have persuaded our credulous, virtue-signalling elites of a number of things that are simply not true.

There is no “rape culture” on college campuses. That doesn’t mean rape doesn’t happen or that it isn’t awful. But rape rates have been falling all over the West for decades.

There is no “gender pay gap”. In almost no organisations are women paid less than men for the same work. When stories do come out about pay gaps, they are almost exclusively in left-wing org­anisations, such as Gawker, the BBC and Hillary Clinton’s election team. Even a — female — Harvard economist couldn’t prove the existence of a wage gap when she tried last year. …

We’ve got to a point where citing studies and questioning facts is enough to get you blacklisted from media, academe and the entertainment industry. I live in America, where the touchiest subject has always been race. Liberals have been calling conservatives racist for decades to shut down debate, but recently they have stepped up their assaults.

They don’t call us racist any more. They call us “white supremacists” or “neo-Nazis”. Hilariously, they even do it to me, despite the fact I have a black husband and have never uttered a racist sentence in my life. …

The reason I describe all feminists as bitter single lesbians and left-wing journalists as soy-fed beta male cuckolds isn’t just because it’s true — it’s because they have been hurling out insults for three decades at the rest of us. Frankly, they can handle a taste of their own medicine.

You don’t have to be as sassy or insolent as I am. It’s probably not a great idea to call your vice-president of human resources a fat, miserable social justice loser who just wants to make everyone else as miserable as she is.

But you can laugh. Laugh heartily. No one can resist the truth wrapped in a good joke, and ridicule is your most powerful weapon against the nannies and scolds of the left. …

Don’t be scared when pea-brained politicians from the Greens call your favourite journalist a “pedophile apologist” or “white supremacist” when you know it isn’t true. They’re just trying to make you afraid. Like all bullies, they are cowards. If you stand up to them, they will fold quickly.
