The bodies were not even cold when the defamation started

Imagine writing something privately that was intended for a private audience only for someone else to make it public on a massive scale. I can relate to how that feels because Nicky Hager put in his book online chats between Cam and his friends that were never intended for public consumption.

Imagine then being held accountable for things that you said privately despite the fact that you never said them publicly.

Now imagine that what you privately said was in one context and that the people who chose to make it public deliberately lied about the context because it would make a better story.

That is the situation that Milo Yiannopoulos now finds himself in as his private troll via e-mail or text of hostile journalists has resulted in him being held accountable for the deaths of 5 people who were murdered by a lone gunman.

Here is Milo’s account of what happened. Quote.

You?re about to see a raft of news stories claiming that I am responsible for inspiring the deaths of journalists. The bodies are barely cold and left-wing journalists are already exploiting these deaths to score political points against me. It?s disgusting. I regret nothing I said, though of course like any normal person I am saddened to hear of needless death.

The truth, as always, is the opposite of what the media tells you. I sent a troll about ?vigilante death squads? as a *private* response to a few hostile journalists who were asking me for comment, basically as a way of saying, ?Fuck off.? They then published it. Amazed they were pretending to take my joke as a ?threat,? I reposted these stories on Instagram to mock them ? and to make it clear that I wasn?t being serious.

Headlines soon appeared claiming that I was ?inciting? people to murder journalists. This is wholly false. The only people whipping up hysteria about killing reporters this week were Will Sommer at the Daily Beast and Davis Richardson at the New York Observer.

If there turns out to be any dimension to this crime related to my private, misreported remarks, the responsibility for that lies squarely and wholly with the Beast and the Observer for drumming up fake hysteria about a private joke, and with the verified liberals who pretended they thought I was serious.

It is a demonstrable fact that the Open Society Foundation and other wealthy left-wing organizations have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars (maybe it?s millions!) disrupting my talks, beating up my audiences and spreading malicious rumours about me. I wouldn?t be at all surprised if this shooter ? just like the last one at YouTube ? is another demented left-winger. Let?s hope it?s another transgender shooter, too, so the casualties are minimal.

The Left celebrated the shooting of Scalise and regularly incites violence against Trump supporters. They are secretly delighted by the domestic terrorism of Antifa and they cheer on Maxine Waters when she threatens consequences for Trump administration staff going about their business in public.

I made a private, offhand troll to two hostile reporters, who breathlessly publicized it and like vermin, their fellow journalists swarmed to remind the world how much they hate Milo. If the Left was truly horrified by violence against journalists, they would have shown it in the aftermath of Charlie Hebdo. As you all know, they didn?t.

P.S. ? You guys should decide whether you think I?m ?disgraced, irrelevant and over? or ?so dangerous I inspire mass shootings.? I can?t be both. End of quote.

Yesterday on Facebook Milo announced his intention to sue Davis Richardson and the Observer for the article Richardson wrote with the headline:

Milo Yiannopoulos Encourages Vigilantes to Start ?Gunning Journalists Down

The shooter has been revealed to be Jarrod W. Ramos who has had a longstanding feud with reporters at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis since 2011. Despite this, the media continue to spread the lie that a private remark incited Ramos to kill the journalists he had been threatening for seven years!

They are trying to link it to Trump as well.
