Milo Yiannopoulos Book Another Great Comeback In Trump’s America

Within hours of its release yesterday, Milo Yiannopoulos’s book reached number one on Amazon’s Best Sellers. And no matter how you feel about him or what differences you have with him, that should inspire you. Just three short months ago, both the left and the establishment right were celebrating what they thought was the end of Milo. Videos surfaced in which the argument could be made that Yiannopoulos was excusing pedophilia. As poor as his word choice was, I never thought for a second that his intention was to defend pederasts. 

Milo was speaking from his own experience as a gay man who at a young age became romantically involved with a man much older than him. Again, as poorly as his words were chosen and as bad as the video looked, it was quite obvious that he was rationalizing his own former relationship, not making excuses for perverts and predators. 

The exposé had clearly been premeditated, and was likely a coordinated effort by his enemies on both sides of the ideological spectrum to take him down once and for all. They waited for the moment that would hurt the most and hit the hardest, when all eyes were on him. He had been confirmed as a speaker at CPAC – a sign that you’ve truly arrived in the conservative political world – and had received a lucrative book deal from Simon & Schuster. He was on top of the world, and his haters were probably seething in envious rage. Almost over night everything changed. 

After the videos surfaced, his book deal was pulled, his CPAC speaking slot was cancelled and he resigned as an editor at Breitbart. I can’t imagine what that week must have been like for him. His adversaries were practically pissing themselves like horny chihuahuas reveling in his downfall, thinking they’d finally buried notorious troll. But last night he proved them all wrong, and in doing so proved to every person at rock bottom exactly what they’re capable of.

We all fuck up. What defines us, though, is not our inevitable failures, but how we respond to them. Just look at Kathy Griffin. She fucked up and tried to make herself a victim. What did Milo do? He explained himself, apologized, accepted the consequences of his actions and laid low.

After going somewhat off of the grid for two months following his take down, he made his second debut in a way that only he would: a “cocaine chic” Cinco de Milo party thrown in a Miami mansion. 

A month after his glorious return to the public eye, and he’s well on his way back to the top. He has received millions in funding for a new project of his and within a few short hours of publishing his book, he was number one on Amazon’s Best Sellers. What that says to me as someone at their all time low who was fired two months ago and that’s been living at home and barely leaving my house is that as inevitable as an occasional humbling by life is, we all have choices. We can choose to wallow in self pity like purposeless losers or choose to reclaim our rightful places on top. As devastating as any setback may seem in a moment, no defeat is final when you know who you are, what you’re worth, or what you’re capable of.

  • There’s a lot of money to be made in making you afraid, making you hateful, and making you believe that the American Dream is dead. There’s a lot of money to be made in putting you in a bubble where you only listen to or care about people that agree with you. And there’s a lot of money to be made in making you believe that our country was never great or will never be great again. Know that in spite of all the noise and manufactured panic, this is the best time to be alive to date in the most wonderful country on God’s green earth.

  • When you work in politics after a while, I think patriotism often feels reduced in one way or another to partisan tribalism. It’s either “rah rah Trump” or “fuck Trump.” It’s calling everyone that disagrees with you a name, and convincing yourself that the only people that love our country are the ones that agree with you. But that’s not what it is at all. And watching @operationfinallyhome surprise a disabled veteran, his wife and his daughter with a mortgage free home just days before the Fourth of July reminded me of that. God Bless America
