Stern, a left leaning weekly German magazine, published an article titled “Donald Trump’s Finest Hatemonger” about Breitbart Senior Editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
The article describes Breitbart as an “extreme right ‘shoutsite’” and claims that Breitbart is “notorious for conspiracy theories and slander.” Describing Milo, the article claims:
For a year the Brit has been writing regularly for the extreme-right ‘shoutsite’ “Breitbart.com”, whose former chief now works for and advises Donald Trump. “Breitbart” is notorious for twisted conspiracy theories and slander. His new publicist home, so said Yiannopoulos once, would be the “Central for free speech”, where people would talk about what people really were interested in: “Freedom, love, sex, death, money and porn.” Laurie Penny, author and feminist is the opposite of M.Y. doesn’t believe in his talk of the threatened free speech.
The article further seems to imply that Milo makes his money using hate and fear:
Yiannopoulos himself says: “We live in a post-fact era and that is wonderful.” Post-fact is one of those new words, that explain phenomenons like Trump and AfD (Alternative für Deutschland): It doesn’t matter around the truth as such, only about how its being perceived by other people. In other words: How many refugees/muslims/criminals/drug-addicts/immigrants really live in the neighbourhood doesn’t interest anyone. Only that people are scared of them. These feelings are exploited by right demagogues like Yiannopoulos for their purposes. Their paycheck is made in attention and whoever is the loudest is the richest.

Roger Waters: ‘National Trumpism’ as Dangerous as Hitler’s ‘National Socialism’
Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Water compared Donald Trump’s political rise to that of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler during an interview this week on WTF With Marc Maron.
“It was insidious in Germany in the 30s when National Socialism came. And National Trumpism feels a bit less insidious, but it’s just as dangerous,” Waters said about fascism’s supposed societal ascent in America.
The U.K.-born bassist believes the Republican nominee will enact a “totalitarian police state” by vilifying ethnic minorities, just as Hitler did to the Jews.
“The method for taking over the state and for it becoming a totalitarian police state, is always the same, and it’s always the identification of ‘the other’ as the enemy. In Trump’s case, it’s the Chinese, the Mexicans, and Islam – it doesn’t matter who it is,” Waters said. “With Hitler, it was the Jews, the Communists, the Gypsies, anybody who had a physical deformity, or whatever it might be, the homosexuals – they were all lumped together.”
The 73-year-old singer-songwriter says America is facing the same economic morass that precluded World War I, and suggests that Constitutional freedoms are being “taken away.”
“What you have in the States now is everybody’s standard of living is falling, like a freefall, and also where the freedoms that are enshrined in your Constitution and in the Bill of Rights are being slowly eroded and taken away from you,” Waters said.
Last month, Waters took direct aim at Trump during a politically-charged performance at the Desert Trip music festival in Indio, California.
While Waters sang lyrics from Pink Floyd’s 1977 hit “Pigs (Three Different Ones).” images of Trump in a KKK hood, holding a Nazi salute, and holding a giant sex toy like a rifle flashed across the screen.
A giant inflatable pig, with the phrases “F*ck Trump and his wall” and “Arrogant, lying, racist, sexist” printed on it were also seen floating above the crowd during the show.
There’s no relation today to anything that Waters believes happened years ago. He wasn’t there. He doesn’t know what it was like back then. He’s just talking out his other hole.
Germany in the 1930s didn’t have open boarders for starters. And Trump has Jewish grandchildren. This comparison is deluded to put it nicely.
Waters is just another prick on the wall.
