Milo Yiannopoulos gave an impassioned speech today in Orlando following the shooting at Pulse nightclub earlier in the week.

In his speech Milo urged the gay community to fight back, to let it be known that they will never let an attack like the one earlier this week happen again, and that they will protect themselves if the left will not. Milo called for an end to gun free zones and an end to the lefts pointless pacifism that has done nothing but endanger minorities.

“After the second world war, when Jews saw what had happened to them in the holocaust. And they saw the number of other Jews who had said nothing, had done nothing, when that particular minority was targeted by a different ugly ideology. They said never again.”

“The creation of the state of Israel, whatever your political views, however you feel about Palestine vs Israel. The pugnaciousness, the determination and the effectiveness of the IDF, of the Israeli military forces, the fact that it is one of the most effective and brilliant armies in the world one of the most efficient fighting forces in the world is a result of what happened in the second world war.”

“My hope after today, after the ugly and disgusting thing that happened here is that gay people say too, like the Jews did after the second world war, never again and gay people too, let Islamic fundamentalist preachers and Muslims everywhere who are tempted into thinking they can treat gay people like this, they can treat women like this, they can treat Latinos like this, they can treat black people like this, they can treat anyone like this, that we will shoot back”

“And to those liberals who say the answer is gun free zones, those liberals who say oh can’t we just love each other, your entreaties to peace, love and understanding on twitter are not changing the views of people in mosques around this city, are not changing the views of people in mosques anywhere else in this country, they are not changing the views of Isis, they are not changing the views of the immigrants who come into europe, they are changing nothing, they are not helping you, they are not serving you, they are doing nothing for you. They are instead luring you into a false sense of security that you are safe, you are not safe.”

“The best thing you can do in America, because you are in the best country in the world as I said, and you have two things on your side that Europe doesn’t. You have the first amendment which means or at least should mean that people like me who don’t even belong here in a way, I’m not a citizen, can come here and say whatever they feel. Most of this talk would have got me arrested in Europe.”

“That first amendment is underpinned by the second it is your right to bear arms, it is your right to protect yourself. If two, three, four people had been armed in that nightclub it would have ended very differently.”

“Gay people need an end to gun free zones. Gay people need and end to the pointless pacifism of the left because we have a threat on our shores, in our communities, in our societies, in streets not far from here, that requires a response from the minorities the left has given up on. It refuses to protect us, instead it pits us against each other. It creates a victimhood hierarchy with Muslims at the top, well the problem with putting Muslims at the top is they want to kill everyone else on the list.”
