Until Junior year I went to Morton West High School in Berwyn, Illinois.
There were hardly any people of color. With a summer tan I was probably one of the darkest ones there.
Coming from middle school you had a choice. You could try to be either a Greaser, a Jock or a Freak. (I know it sounds like a Scorsese movie but that’s the way it was.lol…)
Because of Gym class I got the Jock thing.
But for some reason these 2 groups, Greasers and Freaks had decided to develop their own look and identity.
It was the 70s after all. The 50’s + 60’s = the 70’s?
I just always thought it was interesting to watch freshmen come in and then casually start to change the way the looked depending on which group they wanted to hang out with.
I never morphed into anything.
Once a freak, always a freak. lol…
This got me to thinking.
With the Trumpenstien as President there is NO WAY someone is going to drift to the other side like a Reagan Democrat or an Obama Republican
No one gonna think twice…right?
Enter British journalist, author, entrepreneur, public speaker, Social media shock jock and senior editor for Breitbart , Milo ‘Nero’ Yiannopoulos.
If Conservatism IS the NEW Counter Culture with President Trump as Punk Rock’s Donny Rotten, this guy is a full-fledged Rock n Roll Revolution as HELLvis Presley on wheels.
Vocal critic of fourth-wave feminism, Islam, social justice, political correctness, and other movements and ideologies he deems authoritarian or belonging to the “regressive left” this self-described connaisseur of Big Black (you know what), is famous for making statements like:
“I don’t generally employ gays. I don’t trust them. They don’t show up on time. They don’t do the work. They get all queeny with drama. I like straight white men. They do the work. I like black guys for my love life, straight white males as employees, and girls as drinking buddies.”
“I think my legacy might be longer than Trump’s. I’m attacking the disease, not the symptoms. Also, he doesn’t read. But I still love him. And he’s still my daddy. Nobody’s perfect”
What I find fascinating is not just the frenzied fury Yiannopoulos is able to ferment but the mind twisting cognitive dissonance he represents.
Imagine Madonna, a champion of the LBGT community with a well known fondness for gay men being totally confused by Milo and pens the song, “Borderline.”
Bm7 B Em7 A F#m7
Just try to understand, I’ve given all I can,
Gmaj7 G A (Asus4 A)
‘Cause you got the best of me
A F# Bm A E
Borderline, feels like I’m going to lose my mind
Em7 D A (Asus4 A)
You just keep on pushing, Milo! Over the borderline
…I swear that what she sings!!! ;D lol…
