Meanwhile, 4chan/pol is aware, and is of mixed opinion - there's the "all fags are pedos/fags are degenerates" crowd who are happy about him coming under fire, while the "He's feeding people babby's first redpill constantly" side (who see him as a gateway to fascism/anti-Semitism) are saying FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT WE MUST DEFEND OUR OWN, etc. And, for the record, one of these interviews is over a year old, and people covering the Milo beat all knew, and CPAC knew, which means they made their choice knowing this and are fine with it. Never forget that.
As for the other news...
There is some US inquiry into the Russian hacking; it involves three FBI probes, we're told by Reuters. We have a story of a HUD official (a political one, so this isn't criminal) fired for writing an anti-Trump piece in his own time. There's more coverage of the Trump rally on Saturday that the fascist channers loved, some news about possible draft immigration orders which are expectably harsh in various ways; Haaretz declares that it's time to stop pretending Donald Trump isn't an anti-Semite; the Mormon Church has jumped in against trans rights, and more.
Item 10 is pretty disturbing in an operational way; it speaks to yet another attempt to consolidate power around political operatives rather than diplomats, and this is definitely something to watch for.
Really, there's a fair bit, and I need to get to bed, and you know the drill. Click through, you'll find it all below the fold.
