While discussing the Orlando terrorist attack, Yiannopoulos said that Islam was the single greatest threat to western civilization, more so than any other issue in the country.
“It’s not just about terrorism, it’s not just about Islamism, it’s not about radical Islam, it’s not about political Islam, [or] any of the other euphemistic phrases that the media uses to try to distract attention from the fact that we have an Islam problem,” Yiannopoulos said.
“It is horrifying to me to see the greatest, the deadliest, the bloodiest mass shooting in America’s history being Muslim-on-gay crime,” said Yiannopoulos. “This is what I’ve been writing about for years. The minority wars that the progressive left has put into.”
“It’s mystifying to me why the progressive left has put Muslims at the top of the victimhood hierarchy … It’s particularly worrying because the Muslims want to kill everyone else on that pyramid. They want to kill the gays, the trannies, the blacks, you name it. They don’t have much respect for women. This is going to be a problem for America for decades to come.”
“America has got to decide, very simply, if it wants female emancipation, gay rights, and tolerance for other skin colours, religious persuasions, and other points of view — or if it wants Islam,” said Yiannopoulos. “The choice is really that simple.”
