During a visit on Wednesday to the site of last weekend’s deadly shooting attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando, conservative British activist Milo Yiannopoulos delivered an impassioned speech, uploaded to YouTube, in which he called on the LGBT community to adopt the post-Holocaust motto of “Never Again” — but this time in relation to Islamist terrorism.

Yiannopoulos, who is gay himself, pointed to the example set by Jews in the wake of World War II.

“After the Second World War, when Jews saw what happened to them in the Holocaust, and they saw the number of other Jews who had said nothing, who had done nothing, when that particular minority was targeted by a different ugly ideology, after the Second World War they said, ‘Never Again,’” Yiannopoulos stated. “The creation of the State of Israel, whatever your political views, however you feel about Palestine versus Israel, the pugnaciousness, the determination and the effectiveness of the IDF … the fact that it is one of the most effective and brilliant armies in the world, one of the most efficient fighting forces in the world, is the result of what happened in the Second World War.

“My hope after today, after the ugly and disgusting thing that happened here, is that gay people say too, like the Jews did after the Second World War, ‘Never Again.’ And gay people too let Islamic fundamentalist preachers and Muslims everywhere who are tempted into thinking that they can treat gay people like this, they can treat women like this, they can treat Latinos like this, they can treat blacks like this, they can treat anyone like this, know that we will shoot back.”

    The massacre in the Pulse club is proof that Obummer’s policy regarding his muslim brothers has failed, and Hillary’s same policy is doomed to fail as well !!!!

    Right On !!!

    There are evil people invading the Western world. People who do not share the moral ethics and values of the western world, who come to exploit the freedoms and rights available in that world. Political correctness is preventing people from standing up and defending themselves, defending their society and its values. This is as if the body’s immune system suddenly decided that invading bacteria had rights too, and stopped defending the body.
    Those who accept the western moral ethic are good guys. Those with a foreign moral ethic (who justify killing people because they don’t believe in Allah or anyone else) are bad guys.
    If you do not fight invading bacteria, they will kill the body.

    This declaration issuing from a man who is homosexual himself –this manifesto proclaiming unequivocally the right to defend oneself in the face of death threats and even physical violence to his person because he is homosexual–takes on a powerful meaning and life of its own.

ALAHUAKBAR !!! – ALAHUAKBAR !!!

    Good for Milo, I am proud that you spoke up for all these people. And of course you got banned from twitter, Oh my you spoke about Islam the vary people that hate Gays,Jews etc…I don’s understand since they hate us so much why don’t they all go back to their own country instead of trying to kill and behead everyone that does not accept their believes please go back to the middle east and leave everyone alone, we do not want to be converted to Islam neither be a Muslim.

    I like his words, but I would have preferred “Palestine vis-à-vis Israel” or just “Palestine and Israel” over “Palestine versus Israel.”
