"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

Facebook banning Milo - Primary Sources

After Milo's ban from Facebook, many people are justifying this with claims that he promoted "violence and hate" (as per Facebook's claims).

To judge the veracity of this claim, we should look at what Milo actually said rather than taking the word of the media and/or Facebook, for example that he called Islam a "barbaric, alien" culture:

"Whatever you think about her, Candace Owens had nothing to do with what happened in New Zealand. People aren’t radicalized by their own side. They get pushed to the far-Right BY THE LEFT, not by others on the Right.

Everyone on the Right in public life is constantly rejecting ethnonationalism and violence. I, for instance, have spent my entire career denouncing political violence. Candace has never been especially controversial and has never had many far-Right fans. She gets less popular the further Right you go.

Likewise, the violence directly inspired by grassroots Right-wing media figures comes from Antifa, not our supporters. Attacks like this happen because the establishment panders to and mollycoddles extremist Leftism and barbaric, alien religious cultures. Not when someone dares to point it out."


Presumably if you condemn jihadists (see below in context with the above - both statements seem to have been made in March 2019), you are Islamophobic.

"I explicitly denounced violence. I said that we on the Right are constantly disavowing racists. I pointed out the inconvenient fact that it is Leftists committing the majority of political violence. And I criticized the establishment for pandering to Islamic fundamentalism. So Australia banned me again.

Note that not a single word or phrase I used is quoted by the Australian government. To do so would reveal that I said nothing remotely objectionable. This is why you should never temper your speech for the scolds, nannies and censors of the elite establishment: it doesn’t make any difference. They ban you anyway. All you do is compromise your principles.

Coleman and his party deserve to be annihilated at the next election for their betrayal of such fundamental western values as free speech and for cravenly folding to pressure from the Left. And I suspect that electoral annihilation is exactly what’s about to happen."


Apparently, if you denounce violence you are promoting it.


Of course there're some earlier remarks of his that are more controversial, but a lot of them are objective facts. For example from that article from 2016:

"There are eleven Muslim countries in which I could be killed for being a homosexual" (These Arab countries still think the death penalty for homosexuals is OK: "Currently, there are 6 countries where the death penalty is implemented for engaging in same-sex relationships including Saudi Arabia, Iran, Sudan, Yemen and in certain provinces in Nigeria and Somalia.In 5 other countries, the implementation of the death penalty is not very common. These countries include Afghanistan, Mauritania, Pakistan, Qatar and the UAE.")

"Women are treated abominably everywhere in the Muslim world" (Women′s rights in the Islamic world: "Women will soon be allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia, but what about other fundamental rights? We take a look at the lamentable state of women's rights in the Islamic kingdom and other countries across the region.")
