Gay MAGA gadfly Milo Yiannopoulos was a familiar face to both the queer community and Trump supporters early in the administration. The loud-mouthed and flamboyant Brit courted controversy and flamed out in a dramatic manner, quickly becoming Milo Yiawhatshisname.
After the Supreme Court refused to hear Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s case attempting to overturn the results of the presidential election, Milo has decided to bite the hand that fed him. He’s the 2020 version of David Brock, but with more mental breakdown and less redemption.
Over on Parler, the far-right version of Twitter popular with white supremacists and Trump supporters, Milo was screaming his outrage over the Supreme Court decision after it was announced. The religious right and MAGA supporters have long argued that they could tolerate Trump’s boorish behavior in exchange for the chance to stock the courts with right-wing extremists.

“BURN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY TO THE FUCKING GROUND,” Milo said, seemingly unaware that 117 members of Congress – including Majority Leader XYZ – and state attorneys general publicly supported the lawsuit.
“Trump’s SCOTUS appointments were pointless. We defended a selfish clown for nothing.”
“I lost everything helping to put Trump in office,” he continued. “My life and career were completely destroyed. Was it worth it? No. I feel utterly betrayed.”
“I will have vengeance.”
Milo’s “career” bottomed out after he seemingly defended pedophilia. Already banned from most mainstream social media sites like Twitter, he lost a lucrative book deal and his relevance as his supporters and friends fled.
“I am dedicating the rest of my life to the destruction of the Republican Party,” Milo swore in a follow-up message that any self-respecting writer would know should have been paired with “I will have vengeance” for maximum evil villain effect.
This isn’t the first time the man who betrayed his own community in favor of money and notoriety has turned on his former pals. In 2019, a suddenly cash-strapped Milo betrayed fellow far-right activist Richard Spencer by releasing audio of Spencer in a profanity-laden, racist rant against Jews and Black people.
Yiannopoulos has complained that he couldn’t “put food on the table” after losing so many gigs and platforms.

“I will have vengeance”
