Advertisements for former Breitbart Senior Editor MILOs new book DANGEROUS have been banned from Metro stations across Washington, DC.
Washingtons Top News reports that advertisements for former Breitbart Senior Editor MILOs new book DANGEROUS have been banned from being displayed in Metro subway stations and cars across Washington, DC. Metro reportedly determined that the advertisement which features an image of MILO with a quote that reads THE KANYE WEST OF JOURNALISM violated their policies which ban issue-oriented, political, and other advocacy related advertising. The ads were posted this week and have now been removed, according to Metro.
In a comment posted publicly on his Facebook page, MILO stated: The Washington D.C. Metro the public transportation system of the swamp itself has banned ads for my book. You already knew the mainstream media doesnt want you to read DANGEROUS. Now you can add the government to that list. What leftists fail to realize is that every banned ad, every negative review, and every nasty article about me is a ringing endorsement to the people that really matter real Americans.
We were not contacted by the DC MATA or given an opportunity to speak with anyone before our ads began to be pulled down, he stated. We believe that the removal of our billboards constitutes unconstitutional viewpoint discrimination by a government regulator in violation of the First Amendment and are preparing our response now. We continue to fight to defend free speech against pressure groups that prefer to suppress speech rather than allow the marketplace of ideas to operate.

I’d hate to see the kind of ads they WILL accept...
(all contrary to law, of course; the taxpayers own the metro, and ought to be able to express their views there without censorship by the elites)
If Che Geuvara, Malcolm X or the original Black Panthers were alive today they’d have no problem getting their ads placed there.
What if a product offends others? Like islam, for example.
“Put ‘er up boys.”
It’s amazing this guy’s still breathing.
Did they refund all the money they were paid to display them? That’s not free, you know.
I’m buying this book simply to support Milo.
He’s the only one taking a sledgehammer to the college PC crowd, and also energizing the right wing students there.
Glad he’s back and fighting.
“Hes the only one taking a sledgehammer to the college PC crowd, and also energizing the right wing students there”.
You’re right. He’s also waking up some of the Lib students.
I’ll buy his book for the same reason.
The media, along with the GOPe cuckservatives (those who talk out the sides of their necks about being conservative while constantly bending knee to the left) and the “right wing” talking heads on the various news outlets are desperate to put the ‘alt-right’ down like a rabid dog.
They’re putting all that effort and noise into it because they know the ‘alt-right’ doesn’t care what they think of the alt-right. The alt-right isn’t going to be put on its knees by being called bad names or because of feelz.
The alt-right is all about fighting back in real and completely non-metaphorical ways and to hell with the “honorable defeat” of the moral hand-wringers.
I like Milo because he says what is on his mind, has no fear and challenges the double standard of the left. I'm not into queers, but he doesn't shrink from his actions.
I'm rooting for him to succeed with his new 'Milo' launch.
To quote Chris Plante of WMAL AM radio - "Without double standards, the left would have no standards at all". The troubling Political Correct (PC) crowd gave us Milo, but more important the political elite 'know it all's, gave us Trump. With all of their faults, they are the right people for the right time with their ability to poke their finger in the eye of the elite leftists.
Has anyone noticed that these bans take place only AFTER the ads have been posted?
You would think that various organizations would have review panels to ensure new ads meet their standards before the first ad went up, not after.
