Simon & Schuster cancels Dangerous

It's official. From Publisher's Weekly:
After enduring withering criticism since it was revealed in late December that it planned to publish a book by controversial Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, Simon & Schuster said late Monday that it has canceled the book.

A brief statement released by the company read: “After careful consideration, Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint have cancelled publication of Dangerous by Milo Yiannopoulos.”
Castalia will certainly publish it, if Milo is amenable.

I will do a Darkstream tonight, touching on this and other things, at 7 PM Eastern. The replay is here.

Apparently Breitbart is talking about dumping Milo.

The Left and the Cuck Right are really going after Milo over a edited year old video. What is going on here? I'm starting to worry about his safety.

Looks like this is a win for the leftists...for now.

This is more about Trump than Milo.

I think Trump isn't taking them seriously enough if he imagines they will allow him to be a normal president.

This is Thunderdome and only one of us, left or right, are getting out alive.

If Trump has any silver bullets he better use them soon.

WTF? Who would drop a book set to make that much money?

Someone who was following orders. Doing what they were told. Obeying an authority.

Milo's speech at Berkeley gets shut down by Klantifas but the optics don't go over too well with normal people. So now we have a different attack - coordinated between the cucks at CPAC and a publishing house that really needs to make money.

All this because some half Jewish have Catholic homosexual keeps making stupid people like (((Bill Maher))) and his krew look bad? Or is it part of something else, like keeping the focus away from Pizzagate?

Whatever it is, it's big enough to send squads of trolls into comments across the web.

Publishers avoid someone even if a taboo subject is simply broached. A few years ago Asimov's science fiction at first accepted then terminated for publication a story from Jim Grimsley. The story was published elsewhere. I read it--the protagonist is a young wealthy pedophile who satisfies his urges with an android girl. The story was tastefully done and by no means condoned this human-android relationship. But the subject matter is too hot to handle for some publishers.

Anonymous RomanCandle February 20, 2017 5:55 PM  

I think Milo will eventually recover from this. It looks bad now, but the outrage cycle is very rapid. Besides, he's too good at media manipulation and loves fame too much to be kept down for long.

But if I'm wrong...well, death knows every man's name. And until we join the honored dead in the halls of Valhalla, those of us here on Earth have to keep up the fight.

Blogger GK Chesterton February 20, 2017 5:55 PM  

Does anyone have the pedo quote? Can't find that. I can't imagine Milo saying anything supporting given his past hard core opposition. And three cheers for Castalia if they pull this off.

It's been a well co-ordinated attack and I feel sorry for him. In cultivating the 'edgy' persona, he's arguably left himself open to precisely this sort of thing. Not sure where he goes from here, but I'm praying for him.

(The blatant hypocrisy of the left is sickening, of course, but there's not anything remotely new about that.)

They can't get to Trump so go after Milo.

I watched even the edited tape and missed what I'm supposed to be outraged about. Add context and there's nothing really there except Milo as victim.

Muslims want 12 year olds to be allowed to marry. No outrage.

Blogger S1AL February 20, 2017 6:03 PM  

@GK Chesterton - The relevant quotes are on his Facebook page. The tl;Dr version:

1) Most gay men had early, consensual relationships with a large age gap (true)

2) pedophilia isn't pederasty

3) Milo believes he was mature enough at 13 to give consent (this is the one where he goofed)

4) Consent laws are "probably about right" (16 for UK and most US states)

It's typical bait-and-switch conflation.

Milo certainly kicked up a hornets nest...they are running scared. They are dropping all of their nukes. Pedophilia charges with a side of divide and conquer.

Not going to work. If they try to dig deeper on the Pedo stuff other than a point and screech they are going to burn themselves (and Milo should definitely encourage an investigation of the pedophilia.)

The divide and conquer will not work either. Our side has better fire discipline.

Anonymous Casey February 20, 2017 6:06 PM

There is no pedo quote. Stop looking for it. Milo's only references to pedophilia have been to expose three pedophiles via his journalism.

No it doesn't.

Those on the right constantly attack each other over leftist inspired purity issues while the left marches with a Feminist on one side of the Muslim and a gay on the other.

They are the ones with unity and political discipline.

S&S made a big mistake.

Minor good news of the day is that it appears that these attacks are going to lose effectiveness really soon. Anecdotal but bear with me.

My Boss is somewhat cucky. He voted for Trump but doesn't like him and thinks the SNL skits about him are hilarious. He also loves Charles Krauthammer.

Today he did two things.

1.) He said to me," Wow looks like Milo is in trouble. This is crazy! They are destroying everyone".

2.) In an unrelated conversation about P&G he was telling me about how it has been a no-mans land for White talented men for the last 10 years. Then relayed some stories about members of his church who got fired from there and went on to be executives at other major companies. (This is way out of the ordinary for him).

I think our message is starting to resonate even with the average cuck. They are looking around and saying "What the hell is happening?"

Anonymous VFM #6306 February 20, 2017 6:17 PM  

Wrong. Sarrukin. The Alt-Right absolutely did not care about PussyGate. The Alt-Right embraces its media-generated scandals, and turns them back on the bastards. Bill Clinton is from the 20th Century.

Or do you think the implosions of Melissa Click, Gawker and Hillary Clinton were just random accidents with no Alt-Right discipline at all?

We are watching Simon and Schuster getting publicly buttfucked by SJWs, scorned trannies and NeverTrumpettes (for sloppy seconds).

Milo's burning them to ashes. Remember, he was their #1, not vice versa.

It is scary to see them at their best, and the folks that are doing this are professionals.

However, Milo is not out of the fight. He took a nasty hit, but that's what you risk when you are out in the front lines.

That was my first thought upon hearing the news. Never bothered to pre-order from Simon & Schuster but will certainly do so through Castalia. Possibly multiple copies.

Vox, I hope you can convince Milo to publish with Castalia, as well as convince Milo that the path to reclamation of his reputation comes from him personally blowing the lid off of Pedogate into the mainstream. He will need some time to get himself fully up to speed...but that is his path out.

The pedo-powerful did this to shut him up, to neuter him...he should turn the amp to 11 and crucify them. Milo the inquisitor can become the name pedos fear most.

The Leader of the Alt-Roosh has come to Milo's side, and for all those angry about Milo, Roosh has said in the past, quite clearly, that he's not cool with the homosexuality, but his statement re: Milo is unequivocal support today, just like he had for Richard Spencer.

Blogger Tom K. February 20, 2017 6:36 PM  

I've shared these thoughts on my Facebook page.

As I've already said, MILO is COUNTER-Right-Culture. As he confirmed in his Facebook LIVE feed earlier, he NEVER expected to break into the mainstream culture and now he WON'T. And he SHOULDN'T.

Cuckservatives ALWAYS kill their own. They do it so the Left doesn't have to. It's how they Signal their Virtue to the Left in their desperate attempt to NOT be called BadWords by the Left that Hates Them!

MILO sure as hell doesn't need Simon & Schuster to sell his book, "Dangerous"! I was always wondering why he signed with them. He was doing THEM a favor.

In the meantime, does anyone remember all the PRO-Pedophilia articles being run by HuffPo and Slate recently?

Does anyone remember how HARD the Left has been working to NORMALIZE pedophilia?

The one good thing that may come from this is, the Left's Pointing & Shrieking and Hyperventilating and Pearl-Clutching over MILO's pedophile remarks should set back their own efforts to PROMOTE pedophilia by at least a couple of years.

In the meantime, MILO will continue being MILO and he will continue being the Counter-Culture icon of the Right that he is.

Fox News is not your friend. This is a classic leftist tactic. Now Breitbsrt either has to defend Milo (in which case the guns will turn on Bannon, or dump him, in which case the SJWs will succeed in separating Breitbart from their core audience. Milo can take care of himself.

This hit on Milo may work, but I gotta say that I'm seeing more people on the right show, if not "backbone", at least some healthy skepticism and an attitude of investigating before jumping to conclusions, much more than I'm used to seeing. If this hit is working at all, and it's not entirely clear to me that it is if you remove the obviously paid trolls, the mojo of this style of hit is clearly fading.

People claim not to trust the press, but psychologically they've trusted it more than they realize and more than they say in the polls. But that trust is continuing to erode apace. Even if this does take Milo out it is getting to be pretty clear they've not got as much firepower here as they used to.

And I still wouldn't count him out, once he's had time to recover, strategize, and make his next move.

The S&S deal never made sense to me. It jut didn't make sense, like walking into a McDonald's and seeing Whoppers on the menu and asking yourself, "Did someone make a mistake, or is there a prankster on staff?".

Look, we've seen fake polls, fake news, fake political rallies, fake protests. Everything is faked, it is staged, it is meant to deceive people, while demoralizing the right and energizing the left. The book deal, even the CPAC speaking enagament, is it so far fetched that both were just as fake as the other, that both the book deal and the invitation were only offered so that they could be revoked in a sort of set up to knock down scenario that will for optics sake be seen as a loss for the right and victory for the left, a very well planned/staged and manufacture/fake victory.

No, the S&S deal never made sense, with everything I know about how converged publishing is, it never made sense.

Going after Bannon. Got to lay groundwork first. It's like Death Row Records in 1996. People started dying. By 2003, every inner-circle member of Suge Knight was dead, the last one shot at a Compton gas station 4 times in the chest was the guy who did most of the heavy-lifting in gang murders for him. So it was like they ran through a list in order to isolate him.

Blogger Lazarus February 20, 2017 7:35 PM  

Milo on Facebook:

I am a gay man, and a child abuse victim.

I would like to restate my utter disgust at adults who sexually abuse minors. I am horrified by pedophilia and I have devoted large portions of my career as a journalist to exposing child abusers. I've outed three of them, in fact -- three more than most of my critics. And I've repeatedly expressed disgust at pedophilia in my feature and opinion writing. My professional record is very clear.

But I do understand that these videos, even though some of them are edited deceptively, paint a different picture.

I'm partly to blame. My own experiences as a victim led me to believe I could say anything I wanted to on this subject, no matter how outrageous. But I understand that my usual blend of British sarcasm, provocation and gallows humor might have come across as flippancy, a lack of care for other victims or, worse, "advocacy." I deeply regret that. People deal with things from their past in different ways.

As to some of the specific claims being made, sometimes things tumble out of your mouth on these long, late-night live-streams, when everyone is spit-balling, that are incompletely expressed or not what you intended. Nonetheless, I've reviewed the tapes that appeared last night in their proper full context and I don't believe they say what is being reported.

I do not advocate for illegal behavior. I explicitly say on the tapes that I think the current age of consent is "about right."

I do not believe sex with 13-year-olds is okay. When I mentioned the number 13, I was talking about the age I lost my own virginity.

I shouldn't have used the word "boy" -- which gay men often do to describe young men of consenting age -- instead of "young man." That was an error.

I am certainly guilty of imprecise language, which I regret.

Anyone who suggests I turn a blind eye to illegal activity or to the abuse of minors is unequivocally wrong. I am implacably opposed to the normalization of pedophilia and I will continue to report and speak accordingly.

And, 1 hour ago:

I've gone through worse. This will not defeat me.

Well, the head of CPAC just came on FOX News to explain what happened. He said he didn't want the forum to be a vehicle for Milo to "clear his name," he didn't want the forum hijacked, etc. Which is bunk'em, as if his former expectation was that Milo would come as a solemn church mouse? Now that hope is dashed? C'mon. That guy is equivocating and spinning, good grief.

As an aside, all the cheap moralism on display lately is revolting. As is the attempt to equate support for Milo with support for pedophilia <-- THAT is an amazingly insulting thing to hold forth. For shame, that is the most shameful development to come out of this whole caper.

I support Milo. I condemn pedophilia. These are not contrary positions!

Then, there's the old "Perfect before the good" fallacy in spades. Personally, I hew to a traditional Catholic view about relations. In sum:

1) One must be married in order to have sexual relations.
2) Sexual relations are confined to spouses.
3) Two genders exist, male and female, and one's spouse has to be of the opposite gender.
4) Marriage is a one-shot deal. One. No divorces.
5) No birth control.
6) No abortions.

So, how many others, even among Catholics, live up to these standards, or even publicly espouse them? Have you ever even heard anybody else publicly espouse them? I were to insist that all my allies assented to this morality, I'd have almost zero. None. If in fact I find out that somebody shares my opinions on these things, I am mightily surprised at the extreme rarity of it.

I'll take Big Gay Steve. I'll take Milo. Hell, I'll even take the Methodists who are down for the struggle. I even like it that way. It's funner to run with a motley posse of renegades than on Grim Ship Puritan.

Never put the perfect before the good. The Left constantly demands that we do because they know it's the best way to get our side to castrate itself. Don't fall for it.

#15, Bob Michel was the minority leader in the house for several years before Gingrich took over. Michel was the #1 repub in the House. Apparently, before leaving wherever it was that he lived and going to the House each day, Michel would stare into the mirror and speak out loud to his reflection saying, "You're going to lose today", to get himself ready for his typical RINO, cuck day.

I'm not kidding. This came out after Gingrich took over and the repubs won control of the House in 1994 as an example of how adjusted to losing the repubs of the 80's and early 90's were.

3) Milo believes he was mature enough at 13 to give consent (this is the one where he goofed)

He didn't goof. As he says, he was just describing his own feeling that at 13 he was somewhat complicit in what happened. And morally he was, even if legally he wasn't.

It's a huge stretch to go from that to claiming he said that at 13 every boy should be held responsible for the choices he makes or should be fair game for predators. He simply didn't say that, and I guarantee he didn't mean that.

They're still rams, moved by men. To take from Tolkien, even Grond with its dark assistance, was still pushed by orcs and trolls.

All this about Milo - getting dropped from CPAC, Simon and Schuster, all the riots shows that we're winning. The SJWs, Antifas, Commies, Media are all pulling out their dastardly tricks, and quickly.

Knowing strategic or tactical history helps here - the enemy throws everything they have in last big gambits when they know they have nothing to lose (outside of nuclear war, war with Russia, terrorist attacks).

Milo is a hussar. If he loses his firearm, he's ready with sabre. We should all be so ready :)

and Milo and his next publisher will benefit from the bump in sales this publicity assures the book will get.

Rather unlikely. If the aim is to silence Milo then the book won't get reviewed, it won't be on the shelves in bookstores, it won't get promoted and it will pretty much sink without trace. And no other major publisher is going to dare to touch it.

Sure it will get picked up by some small publisher but without reviews and promotion it will sell only to members of the alt-right echo chamber. Its sales will be a tiny fraction of what they would have been otherwise. There's no need to ban books - all you need to do is make sure that ordinary people don't get to hear about them. It's stealth censorship.

Not that I care about Milo one way or the other.

There's always Random House. They published an admitted pedophile in Lena Dunham. Gave her her own imprint too.

It specifically mentioned destroying him with the 'pedophile' label, and that there would be calls to have him dropped from CPAC.

It spoke of Milo's takedown as being part of a wider strategy to grab enough seats from Republicans in 2018 to be able to impeach and remove Trump.

The title of the thread is "Operation Destroy Milo Begins Monday".


With the SJW Law of Projection, this shows that the recent roundups of pedophile rings and ongoing investigations is getting very, very close to its targets.

Pols and MSM wouldn't try to tag pedophilia on a gay man unless their own pedophilia were about to be exposed. Interesting.

Also, the Democrat Grand Strategy will fail. Very few people trust the MSM, the Dems, or the Cuckservatives anymore, excepting those whose interests coincide.

All this is is twisting someone's candid moment into a weapon. Anyone who has ever been lied to will empathize with Milo, not the liars and tricksters.

This will only push more people to our side in the end.

Are you joking?! Milo and his book are the topics on two CTH articles today, and well over 100,000 people lurk there. The usual cucks are putting Milo down, but about 85% are extremely pro-Milo, and many will now buy his book. If Castilia House picks it up I will promote it heavily.

It is already #1 on Amazon. Just because the publisher changes, won't change the Amazon exposure. Brick and Mortar publishers are on the ropes.

I fear your fear is misplaced.

"Sure it will get picked up by some small publisher but without reviews and promotion it will sell only to members of the alt-right echo chamber."

All that heavy promotion that S&S did with their press release that immediately sent it to number one will be really tough to top. Now imagine if there was a website that was ranked #1 in the world that was sympathetic to the right that could spread the word...

So, the Dark Lord is going for being the most hated man in... how many different fields? SF, Gaming, Publishing, Philosophy...?

Well, when you are all-in, swing for the fence. That would be a really major undertaking, but also a hugely huge hugeness of epic proportions.

Maj must be a paid troll. He has shown up on at least 2 different sites, attacking Milo with constant "talking points."

How much of that $250,000 has been paid to you, Maj?

He goes on to list a number of them. Not that there was any doubt, but there's the evidence that the content was NOT the issue. It was social justice convergence and/or the howling mob of SJWs.

Hi,

I have a story to tell. Over the last week or so, I experimented with installing MacOS Sierra on my HPz400 workstation - and it worked.

I had family staying with me who are long-time Mac and iPad owners, which is what made me interested - I've experimented with computer hardware since the early 80s, but have never had something like this happen.

The night following the day I got my hackintosh working, my sister's iPad Pro bricked - or at least, it was working, but the screen was damaged. The failure mode was that it got very hot in the bottom left hand corner, and the display corruption seemed worst in that part, though it still seemed to log in with the fingerprint sensor and Siri seemed to be working, though she couldn't control it.

As far as I know, most of the interior of the iPad is battery, and the hot bit would be expected to be over the whole body of the machine if it was a battery failure. My diagnosis was that some code had run in a loop, overheated the processor, and damaged the screen (delaminated the LCD?)

The thing that set alarm bells ringing is that, when my sister went home with her broken iPad Pro, a day or so later my brother in law's 2004-era PowerMac also packed up (grey screen, no boot).

The iPad Pro had been on the same network as my HP z400 running MacOS, and my sister had logged in on it.

That both my sister's and my brother in law's machines failed within days of each other seems to me to be stretching coincidence a bit too far, particularly considering that Apple has form for bricking devices when it does not approve of the *owners* use of them (eg, iPhone 6s where the user has had a third party repairer change a faulty fingerprint sensor).

In the UK, this is *criminal damage*, though apple reversed the decision to brick iPhone 6s with replaced fingerprint sensors before cases could come to court.

Now my sister's iPad Pro is insured and will be replaced, though the replacement for the old PowerMac will need to be paid for.

This means effectively that Apple is passing on to insurance companies the cost of Apple hardware it would have sold if a Hackintosh had not been used, by kill-switching all Apple devices of people who have accessed a Hackintosh, and, it appears, their families.

If it is the case that Apple has bricked devices of owners who experiment with non-Apple hardware, then they are not only scamming users, they are scamming *insurance companies* - not to mention putting my family at risk of a battery fire by overheating my sister's iPad Pro.

I am considering referring this matter to the Underwriters Laboratory for investigation (UL certification), absent some clarification from Apple, since it impacts on safety and insurability of Apple devices.

Also, scamming users and insurers in this way probably warrants criminal investigation under the RICO acts in the US, since it may prove to be a species of racketeering - and I suspect that President Trump's DOJ will be happy to investigate.

Interesting...

An anonymous journalist on 4chan posted a detailed warning of the media's upcoming pedo-smear attack on Milo one day before it happened.
