Alt-right boy reporter Matt Forney, evidently worried that the good people of the internet don’t hate him enough already, is using the anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shootings in Orlando as an opportunity to attack the “sodomites” who died in the massacre as well as those amongst the alt-right who took advantage of the shootings to drum up publicity for themselves and whip up even more hatred towards Muslims.
You probably haven’t been wondering what profound conclusions the racist pickup artist who calls himself Heartiste has drawn from the horrific tragedy in Orlando. But I’m going to tell you anyway.
The first? That Omar Mateen was a pretty cool dude.
Yesterday, I wrote about some of the Alt-Rightists who have been energetically exploiting the Orlando massacre to push their agenda of hate.
But I missed one of the most brazen examples: Andrew Anglin of the neo-Nazi internet tabloid The Daily Stormer, who in a post yesterday thanked the dead killer for helping the far-right “[win] the culture war.”
Most Americans, it seems safe to say, look upon the murderous hate crime that left 50 dead in the Pulse nightclub in Orlando with a mixture of horror and sadness.
But for many of the proud bigots in America’s burgeoning alt-right movement, the attack has been a great opportunity.
The reliably awful human being Milo Yiannopoulos — Breitbart “journalist,” GamerGate panderer — has responded to the massacre in Orlando by demanding an end to Islam.
