Milo Yiannopoulos continues his downward slide into the far-right abyss. The deplatforming of Milo Yiannopoulos—once one of the hottest names in far-right social media as the Breitbart-based leader of the Gamergate anti-feminist faction, now relegated to the dank corners of the Internet, thanks to his social-media ban—is following a somewhat predictable arc: He's openly embracing the agenda of the radical right.

Specifically, he's now fomenting for a civil war. Over the weekend, he posted this on Gab:

I abhor political violence. Let me be clear about that. But when someone takes away your freedom, your speech and your ability to protect yourself and your family, there aren't many options left. At least, that's how citizens quickly come to feel. It getting close to the time when, per America's founding documents, citizens will start forming into well-regulated militias in preparation for the lawful defense of the Constitution. And maybe I'm the right person to sketch out how that should work. You know, maximum cell size. Encrypted comms. Like I said, I abhor violence. But civil war is coming, and, if it does, well-meaning but poorly-informed and relentlessly deplatformed conservatives are going to need a handbook.
