Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos accused of giving his “Privilege Grant” to … himself

Allegedly
Milo, allegedly

Milo Yiannopoulos’s “Privilege Grant” was announced with great fanfare back in January. The alleged college scholarship program, designed to tweak PC sensibilities by offering money only to white males, was supposed to start offering scholarships this fall, providing 50 lucky white dudes $2500 each, for a total of $125,000 in its initial year, $25,000 of which would come from Milo himself.

Well, the school year is almost upon us, and … nothing. Not only has the fund failed to distribute any of the promised money; it hasn’t even set up an application form on its website.

Now YouTuber Margaret MacLennan, a self-described “basic monarchist and conservative” who was the original “director” of the alleged scholarship fund and who helped Milo raise money for it, is asking where the money went.

On Reddit, someone called enough__is___enough is flat out accusing Milo of taking the money and running, posting a detailed set of accusations in the EnoughTrumpSpam subreddit:

1886 UnverifiedThe_Donald Monderator, Breitbart editor and Trump Shill, Milo Yiannopoulos -- Starts a grant for White Males to go to post-secondary and STEALS all the donations for himself. Promptly shuts down Grant after collecting THOUSANDS for his personal gain. (self.EnoughTrumpSpam) submitted 21 hours ago * by enough__is___enough -

According to enough__is___enough, “the former director of the now defunct grant [says that] donations for the grant were routed into Milo’s business, Caligula Limited” — a business that has apparently since been dissolved. MacLennan — presumably the “former director” alluded to — Tweeted what appears to be the wire transfer instructions for donations, which suggest that the money was to go directly into Milo’s bank account.

Milo says the accusations in the Reddit post are “garbage,” as he put it in a Facebook comment today. On the Privilege Grant website he or one of his army of interns has put up a slightly more detailed response, claiming that, hey, he’s just running a little late with the whole “actually giving money out” thing. His excuse? He’s been TOO FAMOUS to get the grant pulled together.

“The initial flurry of interest in the Privilege Grant, and my skyrocketing media profile, left us behind on logistics,” he declares, without apology.

In an astonishing coincidence, the Privilege Grant web page also announced today that it had appointed

a new administrative lead for the Privilege Grant … 

Now that the Privilege Grant has been staffed, donors, potential applicants and interested parties can expect monthly updates on the Privilege Grant’s website at https://privilegegrant.com/.  

How strange that this happened totally by coincidence literally two days after people started asking questions publicly about the money! It’s all very Trumpian.

The same press release also claimed that “the Privilege Grant is in the process of applying for charity status with the U.S. government.”

And they’ve got a NEW SCHEDULE that they will totally be keeping to:

The current plan is for the Privilege Grant to run a pilot grant program for the Spring semester of the 2016-2017 school year, and then administer the full grant program for the 2017-2018 school year.

On the front page of the site, though, the Privilege Grant is still said to be on a schedule that would be possible only with the use of a time machine:

Applications will open in Spring 2016. Privilege Grants will be awarded in early Summer 2016 to be available for Fall 2016 enrollment.

It’s all very ethical.

H/T — Thanks to Margaret Pless (@idlediletante) of Internet Famous Angry Men, the first to alert me to this; I also sort of borrowed the headline from her.

EDIT: Added a few details about MacLennan.

What an asshole.

I am not surprised, but it is quite annoying.

Even more annoying is the fact the same guys who would make a riot if a black man have stolen $5 without punishment aren’t up in arm when someone who is actually rich enough to live decently stole a gigantic amount of money.

Then again, and without offense intended to actual paranoiacs, the paranoid delusions of thoses extremists make them extra guillible and easy to fool. Their intense gaze on black people remove any peripheral vision from them.

Is that how the rules work around here, Ohlmann? You’re allowed to use ableist language, but only if you say that it shouldn’t be taken as offensive by the differently-abled first? Well, no offense to any coprophages who may be in the audience, but Ohlmann eats his own shit like a dirty rotten shit-eater.

And they don’t get punished nearly as much as anyone else would be in the same situation, so there’s always an incentive for someone else to give it a shot.

Feminists – from the bottom of my heart – I cannot thank you enough for what you’ve done for men. With each article you write – more men wake up to male disposability and cultural misandry. Gynocentrism (matriarchy), its spokesperson (feminism) and its father (Marxism) have done more to free men from their slavery to women than any ‘misogynistic’ man could have possibly hoped.

Nothing could possibly be better for men than a Hillary presidency. In fact – nothing has been better for men than the left and feminism. Think about it: You’ll have a woman ordering men to their deaths in a nearly all male front line fighting force in which women have always been exempt from conscription. The benefits for men in this one aspect alone are many. Fewer men will enlist and more will question women’s sexist exemption from the draft – as well as the lack of their presence on the front lines but increasing presence in the rear as ‘supervisors’ of male death. Fewer wars will be fought with fewer disposable males willing to sacrifice their lives under this hypocritical paradigm. The only reason this third rail of the gynocracy has even been touched so far is the possibility of a female US president. Win for men.

Feminism = fewer women sitting at home on their butts and more women in the workforce paying taxes. Win for men.

Feminism = women exploring their sexuality outside the bonds of marriage (advanced prostitution). Win for men.

Marriage and birth rates in the US are at all time lows – which is a huge benefit to men. Low marriage rate/low birth rates = less alimony, asset division, child support, palimony, and civil suit payouts following false accusations – not to mention the elimination of the shackles to women the bondage of marriage brings men. Men not engaged with wasting money on women = men with more savings for retirement. Win for men.

Women demanding access and quotas to the highest paid jobs – under threat of denial of the same jobs for men (hiring freeze on men) – without a corresponding freeze on male deaths in battle until women’s deaths/enlistments reach men’s – will be the best thing to happen to men ever. This will only serve to wake more men up to their own disposability and the hypocrisy and double standards inherent in feminism – further validating their hatred of feminism and Hillary – the two best things to ever happen to men.

Feminism has had only positive benefits for men. The much justified hatred of Hillary won’t be a result of misogyny. Instead, it will be the result of an awakening by men to cultural misandry and male disposibility. Oh – the irony.

Again – thank you feminists. The freedoms you have brought and will continue to bring men are beyond price. It’s as if you planned it this way.

Maybe you shouldn’t be so quick to so viciously throw stones, huh? I mean, calling racists paranoid (a word that, internet diagnosis notwithstanding, is generally considered acceptable language around here, btw) ain’t exactly ‘Warhol didn’t do anything worthy of being allowed to live’, is it? Don’t give a shit about what Ohlmann said, but your moral indignation rings a bit hollow after justifying attempted murder in a drive by comment. Let’s just all chillax…

Literally on an article about MRM mascot Milo taking money away from men via use of capitalism.

Anyway, can the manosphere stop giving money to untrustworthy people yet, aka, every figurehead in the manosphere? Elam, Honey Badgers, Aurini and Owen, Milo–enough is enough.

Do what right and use your cash for rent, food, doctor appointments and video games because obviously spending it on “getting back at feminist” isn’t working out in your favor. Buy No Man’s Sky instead. You might not get your money’s worth but it’s still more than any of them ever gave back to you.

I’ll point it out again: You copy and pasted your screed about “oooo! feminism and marxism is scary and making the world worst” on an article about anti-feminist taking money away from men via capitalism. Your shit doesn’t make sense most time but this time for fucking real? Posting bullshit in the comments of an article that shows the exact opposite of your shit lies?

For fucking real?

Get some common sense, or at least fucking mix it up, mate.

Also, IP bans exist, can we get one here?

Seriously though, it’s almost adorable how hard you’re trying to “trigger” us. It’s almost as though you don’t know what a trigger actually is.

Or what toxic masculinity is. Which is doubly ironic that TiMarkErrance is claiming that his masculinity is toxic, while he’s coming in here claiming to “save men” from the vicious Straw Feminists who Live Inside TiMarkErrance’s Head, since Toxic Masculinity is actually the ways patriarchy is harmful to men.

And considering TiMarkErrance’s whole idea of “masculinity” is “everything not feminine” and “women are lesser than me, a man, but are also controlling men and stealing all our money!”, I would say that’s pretty damn damaging to men.

But, I suppose facts have never stopped TiMarkErrance from spewing sewage from his cake hole before like some kind of fucked-up rage sprinkler.

Nope, he’s just going to carry on and assume that what we mean when we say things is precisely what he thinks we mean, and, you know, not what we actually meant. Keep tilting your lance at those windmills, TiMarkErrance. You’ll chip the mortar on them someday…

I’m not saying anybody deserved to be scammed (…necessarily), but when what you admire most in your right-wing celebrity is that they’re unapologetically self-interested and recreationally oppositional, you can’t be that surprised to find out that they’re not that fussed about your trust in them.

@numerobis Even better than that, @Terrance clearly thinks we could suffer no greater pain than to think we’ve helped men. NOOO, NOT THE SWORN ENEMY OF FEMINISM, 100% OF MALES!! Now how will I be able to sit on my couch all day and eat bon-bons/work all day and steal jobs from more qualified men/rear children I’m trapping a man with all day because childrearing is famously super effortless/avoid the totally relevant draft?!
