Australia’s Department of Home Affairs has denied a travel visa to Milo Yiannopoulos and forbidden him from ever setting foot on their shores, which is funny seeing as he’s a terrible person who had dreams of touring Australia with other garbage people.
Immigration officials recently sent a letter to Yiannopoulos stating that the country could ban people from entering if they’d “incite discord in the Australian community or in a segment of that community.”
The Sydney Morning Herald notes, “Yiannopoulos spoke at Parliament House in Canberra in 2017 … During his 2017 visit, several protesters were arrested after clashing with police and fans outside one of his secret Sydney speaking events.”
Yiannopoulos has a month to appeal the decision.
As we reported last December, Yiannopoulos has been trying (unsuccessfully) to organize a hate tour through Australia alongside fellow hate-trolls like Ann Coulter, Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes and Fraser Anning, an Australian senator who once called for a “final solution” to immigration (a none-too-subtle Holocaust reference).
However, that tour seems even more unlikely considering that Australia banned McInnes last November. The country has also banned transgender Wikileaker Chelsea Manning.
It’s icing on the cake for the hate-mongering troll. His fall has been rapid and glorious indeed.
On July 2016, he got booted from Twitter. Then in February 2017, everything began falling apart: His big-name publisher cancelled his book, basically calling it poorly written trash; the conservative conference CPAC dropped him from its line-up following his unearthed comments supporting child molestation by Catholic priests; and the hate site Breitbart.com fired him too.
In December 2018, we learned that his company is more than $2 million in debt and the crowd-funding site Patreon banned him as well. For a while he was reduced to selling useless nutritional supplements on the whackadoodle conspiracy theorist show Info Wars and was shouted out of a Manhattan bar by people chanting “Nazi scum get out.”
Oh, Milo, will you ever win? (We hope not.)
