Apparently, Milo Yiannopoulos didn't get the memo about the need for civility in our discourse.

"I can't wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight," the far-right provocateur texted a reporter for the New York Observer this week. When the reporter inquired further, Yiannopoulos explained that he had simply issued his "standard response to a request for a comment."

But this wasn't simply a toss-off remark. Yiannopoulos appears to be dead serious – that is, he sincerely believes that right-wing assassins should begin taking out targeted reporters. He's been saying so on a number of forums, and it's clear that he isn't being simply "ironic" in the classic alt-right hall-of-mirrors fashion.
