Following a spate of infighting among self-identified “alt-right” supporters of Donald Trump, organizers of the
“DeploraBall” inauguration party confirmed this week that controversial gay Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos will be among the featured guests.
Business Insider reports that Mike Cernovich — the social media personality who inspired the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory — confirmed Yiannopoulos after ousting Tim Treadstone, another “alt-right” social media personality known as “Baked Alaska,” after he posted a string of offensive tweets about Jewish people.
I can confirm that MILO will now be attending the Deploraball!

“Mike got upset that I was tweeting some things about Jewish people,” Treadstone said. “I don’t hate Jews, but there are some things that I like to talk about. I’m alt-right. I’ve always been alt-right. I’ve never said I’m not alt-right, unlike Mike Cernovich, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo, and these other cucks. I’ve always been alt-right.”
The sold-out “DeploraBall” is scheduled for January 19 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The event’s website calls is the “biggest meme ever,” claiming that “despite overwhelming cultural opposition, a groundswell of Americans rose up together to embrace these labels (especially ‘Deplorables’) to meme our way to the Whitehouse and elect Donald Trump.”
The site describes the kick-off event as a “TrollCon” (a convention for internet trolls) and promises “so many surprises” and “memes galore.”
