VIDEO: Conservative Milo Yiannopoulos Angers Liberals At College By Walking Out With Mariachi Band

Milo Yiannopoulos irks some people. I get it. However, his willingness to directly confront political correctness is refreshing and precisely the kind of mindset that we must adopt on the right. We are losing the culture war, but mocking the antics of the left is an important step to regaining our country. Yiannopoulos recently kicked-off a speech celebrating “cultural appropriation” by marching into the lecture hall with a mariachi band. Predictably, the left hated it.


From Breitbart:

Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos entered his latest tour date at UC San Diego heralded by a full Mexican mariachi band and wearing a green poncho before delivering a speech on “cultural appropriation.”

“Weren’t they wonderful?” Milo asked the crowd whilst donning a Mexican poncho over a grey suit. “Isn’t cultural appropriation great?”

“Cultural appropriation, in case you’re wondering why I’m dressed like this, aside from simply to tease social justice warriors, isn’t racist. It’s how art works. Here are a few things that would be impossible without cultural appropriation… Video games, opera, novels, painting, film, architecture… You get the idea right?”

Following the talk, Milo was pictured wearing a Native American headdress.

In contrast to other Milo events, which have been marked by angry, sometimes violentprotests from campus leftwingers, UCSD proved to be relatively placid hosts, with only a few protesters reported milling around outside the venue.

Concerns over cultural appropriation, or the adoption and emulation of elements of one culture by another, have led to controversy on U.S. campuses in recent years. Students at Bowdoin complained about a “culturally appropriating” tequila party earlier this year, and one professor’s defence of allegedly offensive Halloween costumes notoriously led to Mao-like mobs and a double resignation at Yale.

Milo’s event at UC San Diego was his final U.S. college date on the Dangerous Faggot tour until fall, when Yiannopoulos will return to the East Coast.

Like him or not, Milo Yiannopoulos does this nation a great service. The greatest hindrance to a better nation is not liberal policies; it is political correctness. Whoever is instrumental in chipping-away at this ridiculous censorship of ideas and beliefs is a friend of liberty.

In this view, Yiannopoulos’ antics are not merely amusing, but culturally important.

We simply must win the culture war. Period.
