Milo Yiannopoulos’ Chicago Show Canceled After Patio Theater Backlash

CHICAGO — Operators of the Patio Theater, 6008 W. Irving Park Road, have called off a planned event with alt-right personality Milo Yiannopoulos, writing in a Wednesday announcement that they've "heard the voices" of explosive backlash against the booking.

    Milo Yiannopoulos' Chicago Show Canceled After Patio Theater Backlash
    CHICAGO - Operators of the Patio Theater, 6008 W. Irving Park Road, have called off a planned event with alt-right personality Milo Yiannopoulos, writing in a Wednesday announcement that they've "heard the voices" of explosive backlash against the booking.

  • Here's a paradox. If milo had different views and he was shut down his fans would say those people were intolerant of Jewish gays who marry black guys. The real trolls are the ones who trolled the patio.

  • Anthony Harebrained Portage Park Young Blood

    It's like maybe his views are the issue.

Huge Protest Planned For Milo Yiannopoulos' Patio Theater Show

CHICAGO — More than 300 people were signed up by Friday afternoon to meet alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos with chants and pickets signs when he arrives for a scheduled speaking event at Patio Theater, 6008 W. Irving Park Road, next month.

But Melissa Basilone, who co-owns four businesses in the 6000 block of Irving Park Road with her husband Joe, said the theater operators were "shooting themselves in the foot" with their controversial decision.

The Basilones offered to host protesters at their Perkolator Cafe, 6032 W. Irving Park Road, posting in the event page that "Hate has no home in the Irving Austin Business District, period."

    I spread nothing that was "news" that needed debunking. You found lots of instances of violence you attributed to "leftists" -- maybe accuse me of incompleteness and opinions. But let's not fight, Mute. Peace and love, neighbor who thinks so unlike me (and the several hundred people who posted on Facebook in support for protesting the Patio giving Milo a prominent platform in our neigh -- no telling if there are more folks of that mind or of your mind in PP, we just don't really know, do we?). Yes, Perkolator invited everyone to have coffee there, but encouraging dumpster fires? I hope that turns out to not be true. Thanks for checking.

  • "I spread nothing that was "news" "

    Neither did i. That's the word you used for something I posted clearly stating "can't say for sure cuz I didn't see it "'---that may be your idea of news but its not mine.

    Its really hard to scramble through all the "news" on facebook but I will try to get to the source of that claim and verify or debunk it. I'm curious also

Reminds me when I used to cut myself at 15 lived in an abusive home and my parents threw me in the psych ward and was diagnosed with depression. (Thank god my parents didnt put me on meds as suggested.) then when I got out they kicked me out and called the police saying I ran away. Told me if the police found me I was going to Audi home! Something don't add up here! She didn't say she was going to go to new York because things were fine at home! Probably sick of parents shoving 4 meds down her throat! Good luck to them all!

    For many, morning coffee is part of the routine-part of waking up. You don't think; you just drink. Still, the expectations for a cup of joe have risen in the last decade. The Starbucks empire helped bring coffee that's a cut above Folgers or Maxwell House to the masses, said Fairgrounds Coffee founder Michael Schultz.
