Yesterday I posted about Milo Yiannopoulos calling for journalists to be gunned down. Today a shooting took place at the Capital Gazette offices in Annapolis, Maryland.
Milo now says he was just joking. Yiannopoulos responded to a request for a comment with the claim that he can’t
“wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight.”
A gunman entered the offices of the Capital Gazette and began to open fire and in anticipation of the blame that would be placed on him, Yiannopoulos posted on Facebook that not only is he not responsible, but if his rhetoric incited anything, it’s the news outlets who reported his comments that are to blame.
Classic Trumpster excuse. The press is the problem again, not those who incite violence. Like the President.
Five people are dead.
