    I would imagine the fact that “milo takes it up the chuff” is of little interest to his detractors. I think it’s more his media whoreism and his pandering to the “despicables” that tends to get the knickers of the liberals in a twist.
    I'm truly sorry man's dominion, Has broken nature's social union,
    An' justifies that ill opinion, Which makes thee startle
    At me, thy poor, earth-born companion, An' fellow-mortal!
    To a Mouse, Robert Burns, 1795

    Sure, but I doubt the local authorities have much interest in promoting the guy. So while he might be able to turn it into a positive, it still comes out of a nonsensical framework where one person can be held accountable for the actions of others. That is, unless he was actually urging people to fight, which I don't know and I'm frankly too lazy to look up.

    Edit: And good luck trying to collect...

    Nice to know I can show up somewhere and break shit and then force the other person to pay for it because I think they’re a Nazi.

    Um, you seem to be a little confused, the Victorian Police are charging the organisers (Damien Costas' Penthouse), who are Australian.

    Why is this even an issue? If anyone had actually read the article, they would know this was just click bait.

    I didn't need "Milo Gets Chased to Australia" for my idiot, edgelord bingo. Call "Blaire White in blackface," c'mon!

    They're charging the organiser not Milo, and according to those reports there were about 50 Milo supporters there - not sure if that's indicative of the crowd size but unless those tickets were $1,000 a pop I'd say that would make this a losing venture for Penthouse.

    Which bodes ill for future shit-stirring shitlord extravaganzas getting promoted by anyone.

    Though I freely admit it was very late coming.

    It's possible that could happen here, but I don't imagine the bill would be very high because how much damage can three guys do?

    Milo Yiannopoulos's mother (maternal grandmother) is Jewish, but he identifies as Catholic. He claims himself to be half Jew and mentions it frequently to piss off Nazi groups. He calls himself the "Gay, Jewish lover of Blacks" because he knows it pisses off the Left with their identity politics. Use whatever mental gymnastics you like to bend reality, but he is not racist and he is not a Nazi sympathiser.

    They should have billed whoever owned the event location and hired the security.
    Me thinks Chromie has a whole lot of splaining to do!

    And Richard Spencer totally doesn't get along with neo-Nazis either, but funny thing, they both really enjoy a good heil.

    The white supremacist movement employs multiple layers, each layer maintains a wafer thin guise of separation from the lower layers so as to have plausible deniability. You'd have to be especially gullible to fall for it. But hey, gullible is exactly their audience.

    Why should a person be billed because idiots trash a place out in riots? Whether or not the person giving speeches is right or wrong, he's not making people trash a place out. That cost needs to be taken away from people causing the violence.

    This is right.

    Apparently this is normal for Australia, which still makes it pretty dumb. Probably shouldn't reward people for rioting...

    Technically true (the best kind of truth!) but for US readers who will no doubt go ga-ga over such a thing and 'muh freedom!' I'll explain as best I can.

    We have freedom of political speech. It's been codified by High Court decisions and such, basically it boils down to the principle that you can't be arrested for your politics so long as you don't commit another crime (assault/trespass/etc) and don't advocate violence against others.

    As for why we don't have a Bill of Rights... That's a tricky one, there have been attempts to get one going all the way back to Federation (where we practiced the time honoured Australian tradition of nicking the best bits from other constitutions when we wrote ours, thanks America! We left out the gun bit though.). There are valid arguments on both sides, some suggest without it we're at the mercy of political winds. The other side, and the side I'm on, argue that once you start defining rights, everything you leave out becomes a privilege and lots of stupid shit starts happening.

    Of course that doesn't mean we don't have a lot of the American Bill of Rights in other legislation.

    On the subject of Milo and his stupidity, honestly its a long held tradition that people who stir up shit pay for it. Hell the AFL and other major sporting codes help off set the police costs when they hold events.

    I'm ok with this because;

    1. Milo isn't stupid.

    2. Milo knows what he's doing.

    Ideally, I'd like to see everyone involved in transitioning from 'peaceful' to 'violent' appropriately reprimanded. Good luck with that though. However, Milo and the establishment that helped organise it were involved and had a pretty good understanding of potential outcomes.

    Plus, 50k...AUD is like nothing to these people. The conversation will probably pay for it by itself.

    Doesnt matter. They will fight it in court anyway. And win.

    Ahahaha What? There were 1000's in each city that went. It's why they needed to make 2-3 events for each city since the first ones sold out near instantly.
