During the Q&A section of his event at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday, MILO received a question, and a thank you, from a 14-year-old cancer survivor.
“Hi, first of all, I’d like to say thank you because I used to be a huge feminist and an SJW, and listening to you speak completely flipped my views,” the 14-year-old girl explains eliciting raucous applause from the audience.
“I’m 14 and I was wondering how I could help my peers and people my age get interested in politics?” the girl asks.
“Thank you for that,” MILO replies. “I used to advise young people to keep their heads down and to go through education for an easy life, get your degree, and do your activism later in life because they’re going to come for you, they’re going to ruin your education, they’re going to mark you down in exams, they’re going to give you a hell of a time.”
“I don’t do that anymore. Now I say raise merry hell!” MILO continues. “I use the word “merry” advisedly because it’s laughter and war.”
“As long as you’re keeping people laughing, as long as what you say is twice as funny as it is offensive, you can get away with doing almost anything,” MILO concludes.
