Andrew Sullivan 2.0

At the time, Yiannopoulos, who would later describe himself as a “fellow traveler” of the alt-right, was the tech editor of Breitbart. In summer 2015, after spending a year gathering momentum through GamerGate — the opening salvo of the new culture wars — he convinced Breitbart upper management to give him his own section. And for four months, he helped Bannon wage what the Breitbart boss called in emails to staff “#war.” It was a war, fought story by story, against the perceived forces of liberal activism on every conceivable battleground in American life.

Yiannopoulos was a useful soldier whose very public identity as a gay man (one who has now married a black man) helped defend him, his anti-political correctness crusade, and his employer from charges of bigotry.
The Right has a long history of hiring psychologically malformed or self-loathing representatives of groups it despises and deploying them as stooges in order to deflect criticism of their carefully-cultivated, politically-energizing hatred for that group as a whole.

For example, to this very day, former RNC "Break Glass In Case The Democrats Nominate A Black Guy" chair, current radio host and MSNBC employee Michael Steele will still sit down and tuck into a seven course meal of racist Republican turds with a smile on his face.

For example, the late Roger Ailes' sexual predator petting zoo at Fox News is still glutted with leggy  female throw pillows who are only too happy to set the cause of women back a century or two as long as their employer keeps the money coming.

For example, if Andrew Sullivan hadn't spend his career marketing himself as America's only gay Conservative Catholic Tory stoner, no one on this side of the Atlantic would have paid him to do his little dance all of these years.

There is nothing new to see here.

These are the kapos who help the machinery of the American Fascist Party run smoothly.  

And the very least they they deserve for their years of service is to be forced to spend the rest of their days wearing a sandwich-board that says "I Collaborated".

Behold, a Tip Jar!
