Not Funny: On Easter Sunday, Milo Yiannopoulos Titles Trailer for Comeback Video "He is Risen"


"He is Risen," the supertitle to the trailer for the Milo Yiannopoulos "comeback video," promoted on Easter Sunday, wasn't referring to Christ.

It was referring to Milo Yiannopoulos.

In the thirty-seven second trailer, we also see Yiannopoulos dressed twice as a Catholic priest, including in the final shot.

Of course, one of the recent controversies swirling around the ex-Breitbart journalist was the question of whether he had or had not been abused by a Catholic priest. 

How edgy.

"The Bitch is Back." Funny.

"He is Risen" (on Easter Sunday). Sick.

It's true that Yiannopoulos has done a huge amount of good. Among other things, he's given articulate and powerful defenses of the Catholic faith - much better than most contemporary bishops, for example. And, of course, he has claimed to be a believing Catholic.

I have no reason to doubt that he is.

But he obviously has huge problems. And, no, I'm not, here, specifically referring to his sex life.

As everyone knows, I've strongly defended Yiannopoulos in public.

In general, his enemies are my enemies. They're your enemies. 

But Yiannopoulos needs to get his personal issues resolved. If he doesn't, his ongoing implosion will greatly hurt the causes that he claims to represent.

  1. I don't know how to say this without sounding....oh never mind. Look, Milo is Truman Capote and his best "friends" all over again. Hang out with him and you get betrayed and humiliated. It's all about him and always has been. Yes, he's amusing but he's untrustworthy, unstable and again, it's all really about him.

  2. Woof. Lord have mercy. Whatever will bring him to the salvation of his soul. Success? Failure? Whatever. Lord, bring him, at the end of his life, to eternal life, knowing Jesus Christ whom you have sent.

  3. Narcissism is an unattractive trait for human beings of either sexual orientation. What many homosexuals seem to be unable to comprehend is that if you are going to constantly refer to your sexuality or sexual practices you are going to eventually bore your audience. When people say it, they mean it, they aren't interested.

  4. Milo seems to be irresitible to bright young conservative males. I remember the days of Yay, we have our own gay conservative. Andrew Sullivan.
