DeRay Mckesson Attacks Bill Maher for Interviewing MILO

Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson sent out a series of tweets early Saturday morning criticizing MILO’s appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher.

Seemingly unwilling to say MILO’s name, Mckesson smeared him as a white supremacist and claimed his appearance  on Maher’s show confirmed his belief that “white supremacy performs innocence to preserve power.”

Mckesson also claimed that Bill Maher “was complicit in amplifying bigotry in that Breitbart interview” and accused Maher of letting MILO’s bigotry go “unchecked.”

Mckesson continues to repeat the false talking point from leftists that MILO is a white supremacist, despite MILO rejecting white nationalism during a speech at UC Colorado Springs in January:

“White pride, white nationalism, white supremacy isn’t the way to go,” he continued. “The way to go is reminding them and yourselves that you should be aspiring to values and to ideas.”

“You should be focusing on what unites people and not what drives them apart,” MILO concluded. “You shouldn’t give a shit about skin color, a shit about sexuality… You shouldn’t give a shit about gender, and you should be deeply suspicious of the people who do.”

After the riot by violent “anti-fascist” protesters in response to his appearance at UC Berkeley, MILO told Tucker Carlson, “The media has created this environment in which it’s okay to say almost anything about somebody who is right of Jane Fonda… And it’s a way of legitimizing, in some cases, as happened last night, violent responses.”
