Milo Yiannopoulos Strikes $250K Book Deal

Milo Yiannopoulos has agreed to a $250,000 book deal with Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The autobiography will be his first book.

"I met with top execs at Simon & Schuster earlier in the year and spent half an hour trying to shock them with lewd jokes and outrageous opinions. I thought they were going to have me escorted from the building -- but instead they offered me a wheelbarrow full of money," Yiannopoulos told THR.

Yiannopoulos is also filming his "Dangerous Faggot Tour" of college campuses for a feature-length documentary fiim.

"Every line of attack the forces of political correctness try on me fails pathetically.  I'm more powerful, more influential, and more fabulous than ever before and this book is the moement Milo goes mainstream. Social justice warriors should be scared — very scared," he said.

  1. I don't know everything about the "influentials" (e.g. Cernovich, Milo and lower tiered) of this year's campaigns, specifically, for Trump, but lets' face it, they're opportunists. Whether they're genuine about what they say or not, they were going to "win" this campaign season. I would think that Trump losing (Hillary winning) would have been a better long term investment. It's almost like they're cashing in on Trump's win because money's being drained since the one side, for now, has been conquered unless they can find money elsewhere.

    In fact, they're starting to in-fight between the "alt-right" and the "Pro-Israel" bunch. Some of the non-Alt-right have begun to move mainstream by denouncing the Alt-right where they didn't say anything before Election day. (This is all popcorn time for me.) I wouldn't doubt if Milo will later move towards being liberal after a while. He has wrote in the past something similar to an anti-trolling essay, which maybe he has changed his mind. Either way, I find him disingenuous and playing conservatives (and some libertarians), which seems to have paid off so far.
