Milo Yiannopoulos, a British political commentator, author, provocateur and media personality, politically affiliated with the alt-right, arrived in Sydney on Wednesday, in his words, “ready to offend Australia”.
It seems he already has. On Monday night, protests erupted in Kensington, in Melbourne’s north-west, when the location of his secret show was leaked. Riot police intervened when a clash kicked off between Yiannopoulos’s detractors and his supporters.
There are reasons his critics are so unhappy that the proud right wing “troll” being given a platform to espouse his controversial views.
