A Letter to Milo Yiannopoulos: Thank You

Who would have thought – in 2017 – Americans would need a British man to remind us why America is so great. I don’t say this in jest – I’m 100% serious. No one else, not a single citizen of this country, has taken the risks you’ve taken to call attention to our present day free speech problem. You’ve made it your personal mission to remind every American – every person of every race, religion, sexual orientation, gender and political background – that our country was founded on the bedrock of freedom.

Thank you, Milo!

Who would have thought that in 2017, Americans would so willingly reject our First Amendment rights en masse. Who would have thought, that after we fought against the British for our freedoms in 1775, and subsequently established our Constitution in 1789, we would be so callous and so ignorant as to our plight a mere 227 years ago.

America has always been exceptional. Our system of government is a shining example for the rest of the world. Our capitalistic economy has been the envy of nations for generations, and our innovative citizens have made countless contributions to the world as we know it today. People hate us for a reason – we have something special here.

Thank you Milo Yiannopoulos – in the face of overwhelming leftist attacks and criticism ad nauseam – thank you for standing your ground. Thank you for continuing your fight, even when it seems darkest. The corrupt media in this country is doing everything in their power to destroy you, but it will be short lived. Your message is sound, your confidence is resolute. We need you now more than ever.

Somehow you’ve managed to persevere, despite horrific circumstances in your life. Your story is a remarkable one, and your reward is disdain and hatred from millions. Just know, that millions more of us owe you a significant debt of gratitude, and we will not forget what you have already done for us. Please don’t give up – keep fighting the good fight for us. We need your voice in this increasingly dystopian world.

Thank you, Milo.

Your words are suppressed by the media, by academia, and by the tech industry. The forces of evil and the global elite plot against you every single day. Still, their attacks are empty – devoid of actual substance, and hypocritical to a T. You are all that is right with our nation, and they represent all that is wrong. Their power is waning while yours is growing rapidly. The events of the last few days are a reminder – a reminder that the road is long, and the terrain is difficult.

You are our Frederick Douglas, our MLK, our Nelson Mandela, and our Sir William Wallace. Times haven’t changed much. While our ancestors fought for equality and freedom from oppression – you fight for the same today. You fight for free speech and free thought, and you fight to end oppression – whether it’s cultural, religious, or state sponsored. This nation has always afforded those who seek life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness the opportunity to achieve all three. Our freedoms are clear, as long as you do no harm to others and abide by the law, you are free to do as you wish, and to speak your mind.

In our dystopian world, you’ve become an arbiter of violence. This is an outright and persistent lie of the highest order. You specifically deride violence – we’ve seen it again, and again, and again. You and your followers have been assaulted specifically by those who claim it is you who incite violence – we see through their lies. In our dystopian world, your thoughts are “hate speech,” but your critics cannot define what “hate speech” is – except to say – speech they do not like. I recently asked a friend to define “hate speech” for me, and her response was, “hate speech is hate speech.” She doesn’t like that you find some elements of Islam to be diametrically opposed to our freedoms. You have a right to express this view – and your words hit a chord with our increasingly sensitive nation. These are the forces you face today – ignorance at it’s finest – and a powerful media empire set on your utter and complete destruction.

You know we’re off-track, and we know we’re off-track. We look to you to provide some sanity in our increasingly insane world. Keep fighting the good fight, and don’t let the temporary set-backs get you down – no matter how insurmountable they may seem at the time. We look forward to what’s next for you – and we thank you for all that you’ve done for us so far.

Thank you, Milo…
