Germany’s Far Right Shuns Milo Yiannopoulos
Here’s a piece about Milo Yiannopoulos. I’ve linked to him a few times before, but I really don’t know much about him, other than what I’ve read in articles or seen in social media. I’ve never been totally sure about whether he’s been branding himself as an entertainer or a political pundit.
AfD had invited Yiannopoulos to speak to them and other elected officials on a panel about blogging held at the German Parliament. But then guess what? AfD disinvited him for seemingly no reason.
RIP: Doris Day Actress and Animal Activist Dies
I never watched many Doris Day films, but the few I did watch I loved. I’ve always always admired her for knowing when to get out of Hollywood at the right time, too. After she retired, she went on to live a full and productive life caring and fighting for animals.
She also supported HIV Awareness. In 2012 she said this to the riders at an AIDS cycle event:
‘I just want to take a moment to personally thank you all for riding all those miles, and tonight for honoring those lost to AIDS, including my dear, dear friend Rock Hudson,’ she said. ‘It has been over 30 years since AIDS first emerged. And that means almost 30 years since Rock was diagnosed. It was so hard to see him taken from all of us just a little over a year later.’
