We would like to start off this post by making a clear statement: we are perfectly aware how hard the LGBTQ community has fought against the stigmas and myths they are labeled with. Fighting against the false claim that being gay means being a pedophile has been one of the hardest battles the gay community has had to face while trying to be accepted and respected members of society. These false claims have been debunked over and over again while still going up against false studies and claims to keep the pedophile label stamped over them to prevent them from getting teaching positions, adopting children and receiving the dignity they deserve.
Enter Milo and his friends. While they are making a big show of fighting for “gay rights” it appears what they are actually doing is everything they can to reinforce the false stereotypes we all thought were finally put to rest.
One of the purposes of this post is to try to expose what Milo and friends are doing to harm the gay community.
Which brings us to the motivating factor for this post, the “Daddy Will Save Us” / “Twinks4Trump” art show on Saturday October 8, 2016 : In case anyone is interested in the full, uncut livestream video of the Daddy Will Save Us “art” show, we were able to get it before it was cut up and edited. You can find it here on Pirate Bay.
There are so many disturbing levels to this story. The content, the intent, the execution of this staged “art show” is way beyond what is acceptable in the political arena.
Let’s start with the organizer of this event:
Lucian B Wintrich
Meet 28 year old Lucian Wintrich. He is the so called “artist” behind these disturbing boy poster images.
In observing him, one is reminded of the old 1980’s club kid term “Poser”– as he is obviously an overgrown middle-class man-child who feeds off trying to be edgy, as he is LARPing “Party Monster” in his adolescent level mind 24/7.
Lucian comes from a family design business called Einhorn Media Design Group
Since high school, he has craved internet attention and fished for it via an internet podcast called “Acorns and Merlot” with fellow teenager Mark Werner.
Now, (admittedly this is hearsay) we found a strange post on ripoff report that claims that Wintrich mentioned on this podcast that he was molested as a child.
While this might very well be a troll and not based in fact, normally we would ignore something like this. The date on this post is from January, 2010. This was years before his latest pedo-questionable photo series. Hypothetically, if there is any truth to this claim, is it possible that we are looking at a classic cycle of pedophilia victim to abuser ? Are these exploitative photos dancing a very fine line? The Acorns and Merlot podcasts are no longer available, hence we are not able to follow up on whether he ever made this claim. But it might give us an insight into an individual who needs some mental health attention.
For months there has been a whisper about the exploitative poster images at Milo Yiannopoulos’s RNC party.
These images again hung on the walls of a pro-Trump event called “Daddy Will Save Us” in New York City, featuring these “Twinks4Trump” posters.
The show had to be placed at a different location from the original space at the Boiler who kicked the show to the curb when they realized what a headache they were (Wintrich not being able to secure insurance, et cetera).
At first Lucian Wintrich– the photographer of these posters and one of the organizers behind the art show– gave the impression that the show was going to be focused around art created by himself and his other right wing Trump supporting friends. He added that there was going to be a special performance art feature by Milo Yiannopoulos, a pro Trump troll who was going to take a bath in pig’s blood to make a statement against Islamic terrorism. Other artists were the Godesky Brothers who are in the process of designing an alt right playing card deck featuring known faces in the white nationalist scene.
The event was very strange. Unlike an actual art show, it did not bring out an art lover crowd but a crowd based in political agenda– the Trump nationalist agenda. In watching the live-stream while it was happening one could see the awkwardness and tension of the alt-right nationalist crowd looming through the gallery with their main purpose of being there to support Trump and gawk at their new plastic pop star hero Milo. Most of them didn’t appear to know how to react to the art, design, and photography splattered on the walls. Very little focus was paid to any of the art at all, really. This was an alt-right social event for the antisocial.
The real main organizer for the event was a character named Ali A Akbar (and yes, that is his real name; he is in the glasses and black and gold shirt). There is so much to say about this clown, but we will get into that later.
It became very clear that the main purpose of this event was not the art or the posters, or even the Nazi playing cards, but Milo bathing in pig’s blood.
Effective performance art can be a tricky thing. It is a form of theatrical art used to convey a message and purpose. The claimed message of this performance was supposed to be about awareness of those killed by terrorism. That is a very powerful cause, one that many people can get behind. The bathing in pig’s blood was supposed to be a slight on the forbidden consumption of pork in the Muslim religion. This is when the performance starts to divorce itself from the intent they are trying to convey. What does a dietary law have to do with terrorism? Other religions have restrictions on pork consumption like Judaism, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and Seventh Day Adventism. What the blood of many slaughtered pigs has to do with “victim awareness” is a muddling of the purpose. There were also xeroxed photos of these victims of terrorism on the wall next to the tub full of blood. It is unknown if the families of these victims were contacted or asked if they could be used as a prop to be splashed with biological waste; we are guessing probably not and one of the victims on the wall was a small child. Hence, any actual caring and concern about these victims and their families was obviously a superficial claim. When it was time for Milo do do this stunt, the mood was neither solemn nor even focused on the victims at all, but was riddled with catcalls and sexual comments about Milo taking his clothes off. Milo, the forever narcissistic camwhore, turned the moment into cheesecake erotica and splashed around the blood, most likely dreaming of creating scene from a John Waters movie rather than a sober vigil to victims.
Aside from the bathing in pig’s blood, there was really very little drama except for at one point when an opposing attendee expressed his distaste for the show and was escorted out. It is perfectly understandable to eject a disruptive person from your event, it involves escorting the person out peacefully and effectively and then sending them on their way. When it is involving an art gallery this should be done discreetly and with as little drama as possible. But, again, this wasn’t a real art show, this was a Nationalist thug event. What happened next outside the Gallery 151 was horrible and appalling. Daryle Lamont Jenkins from One People’s Project was there to catch it on video
In the video, we see Gavin McInnes and friends in matching Fred Perry-brand polo shirts along with one of the featured artists in the show– Jonathan Proby (the short guy in the glasses). Thinking that simply because they wear bonehead attire (neo-nazi skinheads love Fred Perry) that gives them license to act like thugs, they and several others ganged up on the attendee. They stole his property and phone which Gavin McInnes then smashed on the street. So much for freedom of speech.
Another interesting surprise was to see Marcus Epstein in attendance to the event.
Marcus, if anyone remembers, was arrested and charged with a felony hate crime and found guilty when back in 2007 he was being drunk and belligerent in Georgetown DC, picked a fight with an interracial couple, struck the woman who is an African American female and called her the N-word. Marcus had gone into hiding for a while to get his law degree but now it looks like he’s back in the public eye.
But before we go on, let’s do a flashback to July 2016 to the RNC where Lucian’s toy-boy posters first made their debut.
Wake Up! The RNC Party
Back in July 2016, at the RNC in Cleveland Ohio Milo Yiannopoulos hosted a very unusual party for the Republican Convention attendees. His claims of the focus of the party was apparently gay rights and addressing the crimes against gays in the extremist Muslim communities. Okay, we can get on board with that, as we would to fight any kind of oppressive religious based fascism against the people. But, his claimed messaged took a sour turn when the party decorations for this event were blown up posters of what looks like low-quality teenage Grindr selfies wearing Trump hats.
What does the sexual objectification of young teenage looking boys have to do with gay victims of religious extremism?
The photographer and creator of this *cough* “art” is marketing hack Lucian B Wintrich
Attending this event was a line up of whose who of Islamophobia like Milo, Pam Geller and Holland’s own race based politician Geert Wilders.
Right-wingers have been praising Wintrich for his daring and thought-provoking photos. Some of the best praise he’s earned is from Dutch populist politician Geert Wilders.
“He [Geert] complimented the project, and told me that I was a fantastic photographer, said Twinks for Trump was incredible.”
Even though there were some write ups about the posters, there was no challenge to the nature of the photos in terms of the glorification of sexualizing images representing questionably underaged boys. If there were any challenges to the nature of these images those who expressed any opposition to them were called “puritans” and were accused of infringing on free speech.
Now back to #DaddyWillSaveUs
Now let’s take a look at the line up for the #DaddyWillSaveUs show on October 8, 2016:
According to his multiple posts about this event, Lucian claims this is the feature lineup for his charade.
Ali A Akbar
Meet the felon/conman who was one of the main orchestrators of this event. During our research, we were floored on how much this man is STILL getting away with. He is the president of the National Bloggers Club and has been somewhat in the shadows of political activity yet his past and present criminal actions are so bad it amazes us how he is still a player in the world of politics.
Here is a good look at his past criminal arrest record
His political activities were so crooked and unsavory that Crooks and Liars wrote this up
One of his lowest points was using a young boy to scam a fraud fundraising campaign, which seems to be a common theme with the others involved with this “art” show.
The most intriguing part of this train wreck of a person is the juicy rumor that he might have had a gay love affair with …oh yuck…KARL ROVE? Even though it is just a rumor, there is a bit of amusement in seeing it pop up in various places . Mr. Akbar was not very pleased by these rumors and filed a suit.
And still the rumors and drama around this criminal are never ending.
There is a ton of information on this conman and his histrionic antics. His main schtick– when he’s not bathing in a tub full of pig’s blood– is using the claim of being a gay man as an excuse to spew about Islamophobic and racist insults along with misogynistic attacks against various women he finds threatening to his privilege. In fact his attacks were so vile he was booted for good off of Twitter. He also has been exposed in various ripoff scams involving phony charities he set up to embezzle the money from.
Milo had also made the claim that he was molested as a child and completely defends adults preying on underage barely teen kids and even is hiding the names of those who are illegally using young boys during sex and drug parties. He spills it all in the video below:
Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes.
We showed you the video of his thuggery and smashing someone’s phone in the street to be cruel, hence this screen shot sums him up perfectly…
Nothing says Gay Rights like the asshole who bought the rights to a drug to help those who are suffering with HIV/AIDS and holding it for ransom at a high dollar.
which is only the icing on the cake for someone who’s fast becoming the most hated person on the internet.
He also contributed “art” as an added side show act to this joke of a show.
We’ve written about him plenty. But for this instance, let’s focus on the fact that O’Keefe planned to sexually assault CNN reporter Abbie Boudreau and film it as part of a “prank.” That scheme fell through when Izzy Santana, executive directory of O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, had a flash of conscience and warned Boudreau ahead of time.
The Godesky Brothers
Sadly, Justin Godesky is probably the only one in the group with any actual talent and skill. His playing cards are fairly well designed and when displayed in this event they looked up to the competence of an art school midterm design show submission. The colors work well and while the compositions are a little unbalanced in scale of the images, they are still fairly well done and artistically successful.
Unfortunately the subject and content of this “alt-right” playing card deck– which was quickly amended to include white nationalist fixtures Jared Taylor, Peter Brimelow and Andrew Anglin– is disturbing and might harm his chances for a career in the future unless he is only seeking jobs in those circles.
Also, there seems to be an issue with people sending them money for the cards and not receiving them. (Do we sense a theme with this crowd?)
Their previous claim to fame seems to be a long-dead podcast about Dungeons and Dragons. Obviously some folks rolled a 1 on Charisma.
Jon Proby (aka RawTheory)
California resident Jonathan Proby (age 37) has an amount of artistic skill, although someone needs to point out to him that negative space can be his friend. His paintings show some talent but are gratuitous in subject, immature in composition and basically soulless in execution. To find his work, one has to scrape the dregs of the wasteland of adolescent doodling that is DeviantArt to find his knockoff Rense.com staple David Dees style art.
We are not sure what he is getting at with this one. It is showing Elliot Rodger (the sack of shit who murdered six and injured 14 because he couldn’t get a date) and Adam Lanza (the nutter who shot and killed his mother then murdered a bunch of kids at an elementary school). We are guessing because Proby is wearing an Infowars t-shirt, that this is some kind of expression of the moronic tinfoil hat theories connected to the conman Alex Jones and how every horrible occurrence is a “false flag.”
So much for that thinly veiled concern for victims of terrorism.
We will add (again) that Proby was one of the thugs in the above video of the assault outside the Gallery.
Tried and failed to market a film about real life Party Monster Michael Alig. Apparently believes there’s some sort of parity between the club scene of the 90’s and… memes? His career presently consists of bothering Spike Lee’s Instagram.
If you’re a comedy writer, boasting that you wrote for Jimmy Fallon is something you should leave off your resume.
This isn’t DADA or surrealism or post-modern conceptualist abstraction. DADA was explicitly anti-“art“– by waving the banner of “this is art that should be taken seriously,” this show immediately divorced itself from DADA and its attendant philosophy of DADAism. DADA was absurdism without context; bottle-trees, urinals, cut-up collages, sound poetry and “difficult art” that challenged the nature of art. You know, the things that this show ostensibly railed against. DADA was taking things that had no previously assigned “artistic merit” to them and creating that merit out of nothing. DADA was not about creating “bad art” to be marketed as “good art,” but was an attempt to crack open the extreme and oppressive elitism of the “good art” world. This show attempted to attack the absurdity of “modern art” with what it probably saw as a “guerilla action” but instead revealed itself as uninspired rank-and-file footsoldiers of a decaying imperial mindset. Ultimately, they committed the most heinous crime in all art– they were boring.
The white nationalists who have attempted to re-brand themselves as the “alt-right” have roughly another month and a half of time before the 24/7 news cycle chooses some other batch of entitled debutants to chew on, so it’s natural for them to scream even louder for whatever they can use for currency. Don’t worry, when Breitbart realizes that Milo just isn’t stimulating the same core of damaged people that it relies on for ad revenue, he’ll proceed to do whatever it takes to keep the clicks rolling in.
