Model at Miami Party Says She and Others Weren’t Told It Was Milo Yiannopoulos’ Event – Miami New Times

As MiloYiannopoulos descended from the second floor of a place he advertised as an “abandoned cocaine mansion” in Miami last Friday night with a python named “Jared” draped around his arms, two models hid in a bathroom to avoid being photographed with the infamous anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant troll, one of those women tells New Times.

In fact, she says, the models who had been hired for the event hadn’t been warned they’d be working as eye candy and cocktail waitresses at an alt-right event complete with signs that read, “Feminism Is Cancer” and “Deport Your Local Illegal.” The model says she didn’t know what she was in for until she arrived at the party and saw scores of “Make America Great Again” hats.

“None of us knew what we were walking into,” says the model, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation or harassment from Yiannopoulos’ fans. “Some of the girls walking behind him in those shots were like, ‘My mother is an immigrant. If she ever saw me next to this man, it would kill her.’ But if you’re working in those situations, you don’t feel like you can say anything because you need your money and need to pay your bills.”

Yiannopoulos is a former Breitbart writer famous among conservatives for publishing antifeminist and anti-immigrant screeds online. He used the bash which he named “Cinco de Milo” as a return to public life after losing his Breitbartgig and a Simon & Schuster book deal when video footage surfaced of him defending sex between adult men and 13-year-old boys. Yiannopoulos announced this past April that he would move to Miami and start a new venture, Milo Inc., dedicated to trolling and harassing feminists, Black Lives Matter activists, and journalists.

Friday’s party wasYiannopoulos’s first public appearance in town since the news broke, and he brought along Roger Stone,the Donald Trump adviser ensnared in an FBI probe over his alleged communications with Russian hackers.

Yiannopoulos declined to respond to the model’s claims and called a previous New Times article about his party a “smorgasbord of libel and untruth.” (Read his full statement at the bottom of this post.) If he changes his mind, we will add his comments.

The model says she ended up atYiannopoulos’s shindig after a local booking agent put out a call for “attractive, model-looking females” to work as cocktail waitresses at an undisclosed mansion party somewhere in town. She said the talent agent was promising $400 per person, a very high rate for “performance jobs” in Miami.

“It was a really good rate for doing absolutely nothing,” she says. “The girl who hired me basically told me that it was just a house party, but she didn’t have a lot more details than that. It sounded supersimple. They told me to just bring, like, a black bikini.”

She says multiple booking agents put out calls for talent, but none of the models she spoke to had been told what the nature of the event before they arrived.

Instead, the model says, she and some co-workers took an Uber together to the booking agent’s home and then drove to the mansion, which she says was close to Brickell. The models arrived, were whisked to a back room, and were each handed $400 in cash, which someone had divvied up from a wad of bills.

But once the women began walking through the party, the model says, things seemed amiss: For one, there were only two bartenders for “maybe 100 or 150 people,” she says. And there was just one bathroom.

Then she turned a corner and saw a gigantic sign hovering over her: “Feminism Is Cancer,” it read.

“I start noticing half the guests wearing hats that say, ‘Make America Great Again,’ and I’m like, Shut the fuck up this is notreally where Im at right now, she says. “And so theres a flip-cup table, and people are playing flip cup. Inside that room, in this house they have rented, they took black paint and painted, ‘Feminism Is Cancer’? What the fuck? I almost flipped out when I saw that. I was like, ‘Dont go back in that room.’ That was really disgusting and disturbing to me.”

After leaving the red flip-cup-and-misogyny room, the model says, she turned another corner and saw a wall of yellow signs that read, “Deport Your Local Illegal.” At this, she walked out back to smoke cigarettes with some of the other model.

“Then this one guy asked me, ‘So youre conservative?'” she says and then adds rhetorically: “Because Im at this party half-naked? Cant you tell? Im not [conservative] at all. I dont want to be associated with any of those people. I grew up in the Baptist Bible Belt, and that sort of conservative stuff is just not fair or OK. You dont judge a person by who they love; you dont judge them by what they have.”

Yiannopoulos advertised the party on the website the Tab,an outlet for college students. The model says that the crowd looked remarkably young for a house party (“definitely a bunch of college kids”) and that some of the attendees, including a few nonwhite people wearing #MAGA hats, surprised her by their presence. She says other guests told her they’d flown in from New York City or England to party atYiannopoulos’s “Meme Mansion.”

Around this time, she says, the booking agent began apologizing to the models for roping them into an event they clearly wouldn’t have chosen to attend. At this point, however, the model says, she still had no idea whoYiannopouloswasbecause she doesn’t read Breitbart. She began frantically Googling him on her phone and quickly realized there was no way in hell she’d let herself get photographed next to him.

She says she “would never be caught dead associated with that person, and there’s not enough money in world to be paid well enough to be associated with him.” Then one of his liaisons asked the models to come upstairs to help the host make a regal entrance to speak to his followers.

“They were only paying us to be there until 11, and when we only had an hour and a half left, some guy comes to the back and is like, ‘Hey, girls, we’re going to need you upstairs,'” the model says. “A couple of the girls went with him, but I was like, Bitch, I am hiding.”

She says that, having already been paid cash upfront, she and another model locked themselves in the bathroom whileYiannopoulosmade his grand entrance, strolling slowly down the mansion’s staircase with the python drapedaround his arms. The other models followed him and encircled him as he announced he was suing Simon & Schuster for canceling his book. He said he would start his own publishing company and embark on a speaking tour.

“Why do you need half-naked girls?” the anonymous model asks rhetorically, explaining there’s a clear difference between sex work or dancing in a positive setting and doing so for someone like Yiannopoulos. “What is this doing? Exploiting women? Using their sexuality, like, it’s cool to be surrounded by half-naked, hot girls?”

She adds that most of the people at the party seemed obsessed with taking photos next toYiannopoulosrather than havingany sort of discussion about politics or conservative ideals.

After the speech, the model says, her booking agent told everyone they could leave. The model says she and a friend originally tried to sneak out a back door, but the property’s rear gate was locked, so they just grabbed their bags and walked out the front door.

“If its any indication of how successful his trolling company will be, I would say it’s going to be highly unsuccessful,” she says. “They were a bunch of numb nuts.”

Here’s Yiannopoulos’full statementto New Times:

Dear Jerry,

I had never heard of your publication until my staff informed me today that you had described me as “the racist, trans-phobic, public-harassment demon king of the white supremacist alt-right.”

It is tough to know where to start with this smorgasbord of libel and untruth. I challenge you to produce a single statement of mine that can fairly be called racist. I defy you to locate any statement or interview in which I describe myself as alt-right. And I invite you to justify your bizarre and outrageous association of me with white supremacy. I can, by contrast, supply you with dozens of examples of me disavowing identity politics of every kind, including white nationalism.

Fortunately for you, your readership is too pitiful for your false and defamatory claims to be worthy of my lawyers’ consideration. You will be receiving no comment from me, ever, on any subject, you mendacious, bottom-feeding sack of shit.

Kind regards,

MILO

Milo Yiannopoulos to self-publish memoir and sue Simon … – The Guardian

After his memoir Dangerous was very publicly dumped by his publisher, hard-right professional provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has announced he will instead self-publish the book and that he will sue Simon & Schuster for $10m for backing out of the deal.

The memoir will be the first book to be published under his own Dangerous Books label, which will specialise in titles by authors who cant get published. The venture was revealed as part of Milo Inc, a new media venture announced by Yiannopoulos.

The news came as the former tech editor on rightwing website Breitbart said he planned to sue Simon & Schuster after it cancelled his memoir in February, after a radio interview surfaced in which he appeared to condone paedophilia. Yiannopoulos had claimed that he was paid a $250,000 (200,000) advance for the book.

Speaking in a YouTube livecast last week, he said: I want to send them a message that they can never again do this to a libertarian or a conservative.

Dangerous is now expected to be published in summer, following Yiannopouloss tour of US colleges, titled Troll Academy, which starts on Monday. According to the DailyCaller website, a source close to the British-born rightwinger said: So much of the spotlight is on Milo and the tour, but the book is going to do amazing numbers and authors who cant get published can find a voice with Dangerous Books. The source added: Simon & Schuster has more leftist rules than Facebook and censored his book to hell, but Dangerous Books is a free-speech platform.

Should it appear, Dangerous will be the first book announced by Yiannopoulos that has made it into print. Two other projects on Gamergate and Silicon Valley failed to materialise, despite being heavily trailed by the controversialist.

Yiannopoulos claimed that his new venture is backed by $12m from anonymous donors, according to Vanity Fair. Eyeing up his usual targets for bile, Yiannopoulos, who boasts of being banned by Twitter following trolling of Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones, claimed in a press release that the company would make the lives of journalists, professors, politicians, feminists, Black Lives Matter activists, and other professional victims a living hell.

The release added: This isnt some vanity nameplate on a personal blog. This is a fully tooled-up talent factory and management company dedicated to the destruction of political correctness and the progressive left. Speaking to Vanity Fair, he claimed he had access to talent no one else knows about. All the funniest, smartest, most interesting young YouTubers and all the rest of them who hate feminism, who hate political correctness, he said.

After a high-profile campaign from writers, booksellers and protest groups, Dangerous was eventually dropped by Simon & Schuster when a clip of Yiannopoulos speaking on radio emerged online where he said the age of consent was not this black and white thing and that relationships between younger boys and older men can be hugely positive experience. He was deserted by his former supporters on the US far right, including fellow Breitbart staff who threatened to walk if he was not sacked and the American Conservative Union, which had booked him to speak at its conference.

He later issued a clarification through social media, claiming he found child abuse absolutely disgusting and added: In most cases you guys know if I say something outrageous or offensive, in most cases my only regret is that I didnt piss off more people, but in this case if I could do it again I wouldnt phrase things the same way. Because its led to confusion.

A spokesman at Simon & Schuster told the Guardian: Although we have not seen any complaint filed by Mr Yiannopoulos and have not yet been served, we will defend ourselves vigorously against any action he may bring against Threshold Editions and Simon & Schuster. We stand behind our cancellation of Mr Yiannopouloss book and believe any suit by him to be entirely without merit.

Milo Suing Simon and Schuster for $10 Million, Will Independently … – Mediaite

More than two months after his very public downfall over past comments he made that were seen as a defense of pedophilia, conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has slowly worked himself back into the public eye. Late last month, he announced he had raised $12 million for a new media venture of his, Milo Inc. Hes described the company as a way to make progressives lives a living hell.

At a party last night in Miami, the former Breitbart editor delivered a couple of new bits of info related to this undertaking hes suing a book publisher and hes creating a publishing arm so his latest book can get printed.

One of the casualties from the unearthing of his pro-pedophilia remarks was Simon & Schuster canceling publication of Dangerous, the book he had received a huge upfront fee from the publisher to write. Well, Milo said last night that hes now going to sue them for big bucks.

I am suing Simon & Schuster for $10 million, he told his audience, live streamed on YouTube. I want to send them a message that they can never again do this to a libertarian or a conservative.

He also pointed out that Dangerous will now be published through Dangerous Books, which is part of Milo Inc.

The B*tch Is Back: MILO Celebrates Cinco de Milo – Breitbart – Breitbart News

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

MILO entered his Meme Mansion, packed to the rafters with anxious fans just waiting to get a glimpse of the Dangerous Faggot, with a large snake wrapped around his shoulders and accompanied by a number of large black men, Welcome to Cinco de Milo! Im Milo Yiannopoulos! announced MILO, I already have my own holiday, October 18th, is celebrated internationally as World Patriarchy Day. Butthat has been superseded now by Cinco De Milo.

MILO briefly discussed the events that lead to his exit from Breitbart before continuing, now you may have heard that I made a couple of phone calls after all that happened, after Id been sufficiently contrite for a while. And you may have heard that I have raised twelve million dollars. the Dangerous Faggot said to the crowd that had begun chanting MILO over and over.

I want to tell you all what Im going to do with that money so we can get back to getting trashed, said MILO, first of all, Simon & Schuster.

Milo Yiannopoulos hasn’t finished with Berkeley yet Berkeleyside – Berkeleyside

Its Cinco de Mayo, a day that commemorates the Mexican Armys victory over French forces at a battle on May 5, 1862. Restaurants around Berkeley and Oakland are offering specials to help draw attention to the plight of immigrants.

One day it is not although there were fears that it would happen in Berkeley is Cinco de Milo.

That would be a day celebratingMilo Yiannopoulos, the once influential Breitbart writer who saw his lucrativebook contract and invitations to address the nations top conservatives wither and die after a video surfaced showing him appearing to condone sexual relationships between minors and adults.

It is the same Milo Yiannopoulos whose appearance at UC Berkeley on Feb. 1 touched off demonstrations, attacks and vandalism by about 150 black-clad so-called antifa protesters on campus and in downtown Berkeley. Cals cancellation of Yiannopoulos speech prompted an outcry by conservatives and extremists on the right, who characterize the situation as a free speech issue, while the university refers to it as a safety issue. Since then, there have been three rallies in Berkeley on March 4, April 15 and April 27. The rallies pitted the extreme right againstthe extreme left, and two of themturnedviolent, with police making multiple arrests.

After the most violent rally, on April 15, it appeared that Yiannopoulos might be showing up in Berkeley on May 5. Days before, he had announced that he intended to come to Berkeley for a weekfor a huge multi-day event called Milos Free Speech Week.

MILOS FREE SPEECH WEEK will include events on the UC Berkeley campus, Yiannopoulos wrote on Facebook. We will stand united against the progressive Left. We will loudly reject the venomous hectoring and moral hypocrisy of social justice warriors. Free speech belongs to everyone not just the spoilt brats of the academy.

Posters about Cinco de Milo began to show up on bus shelters at Durant and Telegraph avenues and Bancroft and Telegraph avenues. A sign strung up on utility wires hungover onestreet. They featured an image of a penis with the slogan The Return of the Good Hurt. A Los Angeles-based street artist named Sabo took credit for installing the posters.

Clear Channel, the company with whomAC Transit contracts to maintain the shelters, removed the ads, although at least one piece of graffiti remained up through May 1.

A Clear Channel representative confirms the images found inside the display case are unauthorized ads, said Robert Lyles, the media affairs manager for AC Transit on Tuesday. It appears that vandals tampered with the case and installed the ad. Additionally, Clear Channel was made aware of the unauthorized ads last week and removed them shortly thereafter. Each of the shelters also had graffiti. I am informed crews have been dispatched to clean any and all graffiti at each location.

Then in the last two days, Yiannopoulos announced that Cinco de Milo would happen in Miami not Berkeley. He said he would take the opportunitywhen in Miami on May 5 to announce details about his plans to appear in Berkeley in the fall. He plans to live-stream the event at 6 p.m. PST.

Yiannopoulos also claimsundisclosed investors have put in $12 million to fund a new media company called Milo Inc., that willhave a 30-person team based in Miami. In a Facebook post, Yiannopoulos said hehadhired a seasoned media executive to lead the new company which will manage the provocateursbooks, tours, merchandise, radio and TV opportunities.

This isnt some vanity nameplate on a personal blog, Yiannopolous said in a Facebook statement. This is a fully tooled-up talent factory and management company dedicated to the destruction of political correctness and the progressive left. I will spend every waking moment of the rest of my life making the lives of journalists, professors, politicians, feminists, Black Lives Matter activists and other professional victims a living hell. Free speech is back and it is fabulous.

Yiannopoulos also announced that he would be giving out a Mario Savio award, named after the Berkeley graduate student who became the best known leader of the Free Speech Movement in 1964.

Yiannopoulos may be far away from Berkeley on Cinco de Mayo, but thechain of events set off byhis UC Berkeley appearance in February continues without him.

On Thursday evening, the local chapter of a national group called Refuse Fascism held an event on campus advertised as The Battle for Berkeley and a challenge to debate.

One hundred people showed up for a talk by Sunsara Taylor, a self-identified communist revolutionary, who condemned the conservative speakers who were slated to speak on campus and the far-right protesters who have flocked to Berkeley as a result, calling them operatives for a fascist regime. The event drew both conservative and liberal students and a number of community members who had seen the many posters that were plastered around the city.

After Taylors talk, a question-and-answer session turned into a tense shouting match, indicative of the heightened emotions surrounding events in Berkeley this year. Audience members across the political spectrum yelled at each other and at Taylor, who argued fervently with them. One of the questions that incited yelling came from Troy Warden, the president of the Berkeley College Republicans, the group thatinvited both Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter to speak at the university.

Will you condemn the violence perpetrated against my community? Warden asked. It was the first of many similar comments from the audience, accusing Taylor of condoning the violence ofblack bloc antifa protesters.

Will you condemn the Mother Of All Bombs? she shot back. She argued that not all violence is the same, since some is perpetrated by people withpower and some by the masses rising up.

We need to do what the German people should have done when Hitler came to power, she said, drawing cheers.

When the event ended, more than two hours after it began, manyaudience members lingered, seeming eager to continue arguing about the topics on the minds of many in Berkeley ever since the city has become something of a ground zero for extremists to meet and to clash with each other.

Natalie Orenstein contributed reporting to this story.

Milo Yiannopoulos to self-publish memoir and sue Simon … – The Guardian

Milo Yiannopoulos, announcing his resignation from Breitbart in February. Photograph: Jason Szenes/EPA After his memoir Dangerous was very publicly dumped by his publisher, hard-right professional provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has announced he will instead self-publish the book and that he will sue Simon & Schuster for $10m for backing out of the deal. The memoir will be the first book to be published under his own Dangerous Books label, which will specialise in titles by authors who cant get published. The venture was revealed as part of Milo Inc, a new media venture announced by Yiannopoulos. The news came as the former tech editor on rightwing website Breitbart said he planned to sue Simon & Schuster after it cancelled his memoir in February, after a radio interview surfaced in which he appeared to condone paedophilia. Yiannopoulos had claimed that he was paid a $250,000 (200,000) advance for the book. Speaking in a YouTube livecast last week, he said: I want to send them a message that they can never again do this to a libertarian or a conservative. Dangerous is now expected to be published in summer, following Yiannopouloss tour of US colleges, titled Troll Academy, which starts on Monday. According to the DailyCaller website, a source close to the British-born rightwinger said: So much of the spotlight is on Milo and the tour, but the book is going to do amazing numbers and authors who cant get published can find a voice with Dangerous Books. The source added: Simon & Schuster has more leftist rules than Facebook and censored his book to hell, but Dangerous Books is a free-speech platform. Should it appear, Dangerous will be the first book announced by Yiannopoulos that has made it into print. Two other projects on Gamergate and Silicon Valley failed to materialise, despite being heavily trailed by the controversialist. Yiannopoulos claimed that his new venture is backed by $12m from anonymous donors, according to Vanity Fair. Eyeing up his usual targets for bile, Yiannopoulos, who boasts of being banned by Twitter following trolling of Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones, claimed in a press release that the company would make the lives of journalists, professors, politicians, feminists, Black Lives Matter activists, and other professional victims a living hell. The release added: This isnt some vanity nameplate on a personal blog. This is a fully tooled-up talent factory and management company dedicated to the destruction of political correctness and the progressive left. Speaking to Vanity Fair, he claimed he had access to talent no one else knows about. All the funniest, smartest, most interesting young YouTubers and all the rest of them who hate feminism, who hate political correctness, he said. After a high-profile campaign from writers, booksellers and protest groups, Dangerous was eventually dropped by Simon & Schuster when a clip of Yiannopoulos speaking on radio emerged online where he said the age of consent was not this black and white thing and that relationships between younger boys and older men can be hugely positive experience. He was deserted by his former supporters on the US far right, including fellow Breitbart staff who threatened to walk if he was not sacked and the American Conservative Union, which had booked him to speak at its conference. He later issued a clarification through social media, claiming he found child abuse absolutely disgusting and added: In most cases you guys know if I say something outrageous or offensive, in most cases my only regret is that I didnt piss off more people, but in this case if I could do it again I wouldnt phrase things the same way. Because its led to confusion. A spokesman at Simon & Schuster told the Guardian: Although we have not seen any complaint filed by Mr Yiannopoulos and have not yet been served, we will defend ourselves vigorously against any action he may bring against Threshold Editions and Simon & Schuster. We stand behind our cancellation of Mr Yiannopouloss book and believe any suit by him to be entirely without merit.

Milo Suing Simon and Schuster for $10 Million, Will Independently … – Mediaite

More than two months after his very public downfall over past comments he made that were seen as a defense of pedophilia, conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has slowly worked himself back into the public eye. Late last month, he announced he had raised $12 million for a new media venture of his, Milo Inc. Hes described the company as a way to make progressives lives a living hell. At a party last night in Miami, the former Breitbart editor delivered a couple of new bits of info related to this undertaking hes suing a book publisher and hes creating a publishing arm so his latest book can get printed. One of the casualties from the unearthing of his pro-pedophilia remarks was Simon & Schuster canceling publication of Dangerous, the book he had received a huge upfront fee from the publisher to write. Well, Milo said last night that hes now going to sue them for big bucks. I am suing Simon & Schuster for $10 million, he told his audience, live streamed on YouTube. I want to send them a message that they can never again do this to a libertarian or a conservative. He also pointed out that Dangerous will now be published through Dangerous Books, which is part of Milo Inc. Watch video of his comments above (they start after the one-hour mark), via his YouTube channel.

Milo Yiannopoulos hasn’t finished with Berkeley yet Berkeleyside – Berkeleyside

Protesters at the Feb. 1 Milo Yiannopoulos event at UC Berkeley. Photo: Dan Lurie Its Cinco de Mayo, a day that commemorates the Mexican Armys victory over French forces at a battle on May 5, 1862. Restaurants around Berkeley and Oakland are offering specials to help draw attention to the plight of immigrants. One day it is not although there were fears that it would happen in Berkeley is Cinco de Milo. That would be a day celebratingMilo Yiannopoulos, the once influential Breitbart writer who saw his lucrativebook contract and invitations to address the nations top conservatives wither and die after a video surfaced showing him appearing to condone sexual relationships between minors and adults. It is the same Milo Yiannopoulos whose appearance at UC Berkeley on Feb. 1 touched off demonstrations, attacks and vandalism by about 150 black-clad so-called antifa protesters on campus and in downtown Berkeley. Cals cancellation of Yiannopoulos speech prompted an outcry by conservatives and extremists on the right, who characterize the situation as a free speech issue, while the university refers to it as a safety issue. Since then, there have been three rallies in Berkeley on March 4, April 15 and April 27. The rallies pitted the extreme right againstthe extreme left, and two of themturnedviolent, with police making multiple arrests. After the most violent rally, on April 15, it appeared that Yiannopoulos might be showing up in Berkeley on May 5. Days before, he had announced that he intended to come to Berkeley for a weekfor a huge multi-day event called Milos Free Speech Week. MILOS FREE SPEECH WEEK will include events on the UC Berkeley campus, Yiannopoulos wrote on Facebook. We will stand united against the progressive Left. We will loudly reject the venomous hectoring and moral hypocrisy of social justice warriors. Free speech belongs to everyone not just the spoilt brats of the academy. Posters about Cinco de Milo began to show up on bus shelters at Durant and Telegraph avenues and Bancroft and Telegraph avenues. A sign strung up on utility wires hungover onestreet. They featured an image of a penis with the slogan The Return of the Good Hurt. A Los Angeles-based street artist named Sabo took credit for installing the posters. Clear Channel, the company with whomAC Transit contracts to maintain the shelters, removed the ads, although at least one piece of graffiti remained up through May 1. A Clear Channel representative confirms the images found inside the display case are unauthorized ads, said Robert Lyles, the media affairs manager for AC Transit on Tuesday. It appears that vandals tampered with the case and installed the ad. Additionally, Clear Channel was made aware of the unauthorized ads last week and removed them shortly thereafter. Each of the shelters also had graffiti. I am informed crews have been dispatched to clean any and all graffiti at each location. Then in the last two days, Yiannopoulos announced that Cinco de Milo would happen in Miami not Berkeley. He said he would take the opportunitywhen in Miami on May 5 to announce details about his plans to appear in Berkeley in the fall. He plans to live-stream the event at 6 p.m. PST. Yiannopoulos also claimsundisclosed investors have put in $12 million to fund a new media company called Milo Inc., that willhave a 30-person team based in Miami. In a Facebook post, Yiannopoulos said hehadhired a seasoned media executive to lead the new company which will manage the provocateursbooks, tours, merchandise, radio and TV opportunities. This isnt some vanity nameplate on a personal blog, Yiannopolous said in a Facebook statement. This is a fully tooled-up talent factory and management company dedicated to the destruction of political correctness and the progressive left. I will spend every waking moment of the rest of my life making the lives of journalists, professors, politicians, feminists, Black Lives Matter activists and other professional victims a living hell. Free speech is back and it is fabulous. Yiannopoulos also announced that he would be giving out a Mario Savio award, named after the Berkeley graduate student who became the best known leader of the Free Speech Movement in 1964. Yiannopoulos may be far away from Berkeley on Cinco de Mayo, but thechain of events set off byhis UC Berkeley appearance in February continues without him. On Thursday evening, the local chapter of a national group called Refuse Fascism held an event on campus advertised as The Battle for Berkeley and a challenge to debate. One hundred people showed up for a talk by Sunsara Taylor, a self-identified communist revolutionary, who condemned the conservative speakers who were slated to speak on campus and the far-right protesters who have flocked to Berkeley as a result, calling them operatives for a fascist regime. The event drew both conservative and liberal students and a number of community members who had seen the many posters that were plastered around the city. After Taylors talk, a question-and-answer session turned into a tense shouting match, indicative of the heightened emotions surrounding events in Berkeley this year. Audience members across the political spectrum yelled at each other and at Taylor, who argued fervently with them. One of the questions that incited yelling came from Troy Warden, the president of the Berkeley College Republicans, the group thatinvited both Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter to speak at the university. Will you condemn the violence perpetrated against my community? Warden asked. It was the first of many similar comments from the audience, accusing Taylor of condoning the violence ofblack bloc antifa protesters. Will you condemn the Mother Of All Bombs? she shot back. She argued that not all violence is the same, since some is perpetrated by people withpower and some by the masses rising up. We need to do what the German people should have done when Hitler came to power, she said, drawing cheers. When the event ended, more than two hours after it began, manyaudience members lingered, seeming eager to continue arguing about the topics on the minds of many in Berkeley ever since the city has become something of a ground zero for extremists to meet and to clash with each other. Natalie Orenstein contributed reporting to this story.
