    Big article on Milo, about how he's employed by the very ultra Mercers, in the new issue of Vanity Fair.

    Inactive: "go out of my way to make it my business" -- the policies of the government. are everyone's business. Perhaps you are comfortable living with the status quo, or whatever is imposed upon you, but some of us want to sustain rights we currently have (and even use them!). You protest the protesters on EveryBlock, out of fear of them? I hope you aren't taking work time to make these comments. People who don't work nights probably don't have to take a day off to either attend or protest an evening event.

  • No wonder you have so much false information! You are taking info from articles like this one as fact!

    "the policies of the government. are everyone's business. "

    What government policy? We are talking about a book author. Not a government policy.

    "Perhaps you are comfortable living with the status quo, or whatever is imposed upon you, "

    No one imposed Milo on anybody.

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" "

    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

  • Freedom is freedom, preventing others from their rights is not Freedom,
    It's just the opposite. If you love your freedom remember this.
