To the hysteria and dismay of social justice warriors around the world -- and likely beyond, extending to their home planet -- Breitbart.com Tech Editor and dark knight of the cultural libertarian movement, Milo Yiannopoulos, has unveiled his latest venture.
And I have to say, it’s the nuclear bomb of macroaggressions: a college scholarship fund – for white men: The Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant.
In an interview with Buzzfeed’s senior tech reporter, Joseph Bernstein, Milo explained that the idea for the scholarship grant had originally started out as a practical joke to infuriate the thin-skinned political correctness crowd.
However, upon digging deeper into the issue and coming up with research supporting the fact that today, low-income Caucasian males are in fact disadvantaged in academia, Milo decided to go ahead with the idea. And thus, through private donations and $25,000 of his own money, put his plan into fruition.

The reaction to Milo’s charitable foundation from the authoritarian left really highlights the lack of moral in their ideology.
Besides the usual progressive blogs publishing columns accusing him of “stomping down on minorities”, or calling him the “Kanye West of Journalism”, progressives went a step further in actually engaging in malicious cyber attacks against his website.
I started a charity to help poor kids get to college. Response from progressives was to call me a racist, DDoS the site. They’re wonderful.— Milo Yiannopoulos ✘ (@Nero) January 22, 2016
Through a series of DDoS attacks, the Privilege Grant website was taken down.
Fortunately, and to the discontent of the "progressive cyber-attackers," Milo’s IT staff was working around the clock, it had the site back up and running soon after.
What Milo has done, is personally set up a scholarship fund through the voluntary donations of various benefactors, including the donation of his own earnings. Really, does it matter what group of people Milo’s charity is aimed at?
Never-mind the fact that the data supports his claims of current imbalances existing in academia ; the underlying truth is, that people are voluntarily engaging in acts of charity.
Should we, as individuals, not be free to elect the beneficiaries of our voluntary charitable deeds?
And the left hate this: Milo’s chosen name of “Privilege Grant” is just the cherry on top.
The same adversaries of the Privilege Grant for the most-part believe and support nationalization of education. They want all college education to be funded with the taxpayer’s dime.
The fact is, that they themselves aren’t personally paying to put someone through college, they support a government program that uses other people’s money to do so – whether they want to or not.
And thus, what really matters to the Left is obtaining this unearned sense of moral superiority at the cost of never really having to do anything.
The difference is, that Milo has. He did put down his own money for a worthy cause, and he didn't need government to do it. That's what the left can't stand.
If you disagree with Milo’s premise that low-income Caucasian males are disadvantaged in the academic world, then by all means, start your own charitable venture aimed at helping the people you so choose to.
