Oh Boy, Milo Hacked: His Password Was 'LongKnives1290'

BuzzFeed somehow gained access to emails of Milo Yiannopoulos and various Breitbart employees.

In a long piece, Alt-White: How The Breitbart Machine Laundered Racist Hate, BuzzFeed reports on the email exchanges between Yiannopoulos, Steve Bannon, neo-nazis and many others. It provides significant insight into the thinking and real beliefs of that group.

Also from the piece:
In an April 6 email, Allum Bokhari mentioned having had access to an account of Yiannopoulos’s with “a password that began with the word Kristall.” Kristallnacht, an infamous 1938 riot against German Jews carried out by the SA — the paramilitary organization that helped Hitler rise to power — is sometimes considered the beginning of the Holocaust. In a June 2016 email to an assistant, Yiannopoulos shared the password to his email, which began “LongKnives1290.” The Night of the Long Knives was the Nazi purge of the leadership of the SA. The purge famously included Ernst Röhm, the SA’s gay leader. 1290 is the year King Edward I expelled the Jews from England.
