Among the many disturbing aspects of a chilling patricide that’s making headlines is this quote from the alleged killer’s mother to police, minutes before the crime occurred:
“He just lives on the internet and he gets really worked up about everything that’s going on.”
The “he” she’s referring to is her son, Lane Davis, a prolific alt-right blogger/YouTuber, fervent Trump supporter and one-time intern to Milo Yiannopoulos at Breitbart.
Davis, 33, is now being charged with first-degree murder, after allegedly stabbing his father to death in the family’s Washington home.
According to audio obtained by the Daily Beast, Lane became fully unhinged after his father called him a “Nazi.”
“He’s chasing us around the house,” Davis’ mother told a police dispatcher. “He’s mad about something on the internet about leftist pedophiles and he thinks we’re leftist and he’s calling us pedophiles, and I don’t know what-all.”
Lane Davis pleaded not guilty and now awaits a January trial.
A look at Davis’ past raises a number of red flags. After he dropped out of Washington State University in 2004, Davis built up a following on YouTube spreading conspiracy theories. In 2014 he was a part of Gamergate, an online campaign that harassed women in the video game industry, sometimes with death threats.
This troubling resume was apparently sufficient for landing an internship with Milo Yinnopoulos at Breitbart. While there, Davis co-wrote an article with Yinnopoulos accusing the MacArthur Foundation of promoting censorship on social media.
Yinnopoulos, whose cozy collaboration with neo-Nazis was recently exposed by Buzzfeed, released this statement to the Daily Beast:
“Mr. Davis was a volunteer for me for a brief period of time prior to my founding Milo, Inc. I was unhappy with his work and discontinued the relationship. I then experienced his anger firsthand as he threatened me and later went to Buzzfeed making false and inaccurate accusations.”
On the day of Davis’ arrest, the Daily Beast reports he “retweeted posts celebrating the Second Amendment, bemoaning diversity, and spreading conspiracy theories that alleged Hillary Clinton‘s campaign chairman John Podesta was involved in a child sex ring and DNC staffer Seth Rich had been murdered.”
Milo’s base is fly trap for the crazies. Nothing unusual about this.
Milo is a decent person. He is not to blame for the unhinged.
This case illustrates the danger of immersing oneself in the world of constant and instant internet opinions at the expense of real life.
You gotta be kidding.
I have never heard Milo say anything descent.
Milo and jaxton have allot in common though. They’ll both say anything at all for attention.
Milo Yinnopoulis has a strange way of being decent. He is a fascist at best.
Jaxton’s dad better hire a bodyguard.
I love it when the trolls expose themselves so completely. Nicely done Jaxton, guess it’s time to come back under another screename.
You have to be kidding!
Milo is the “male” Ann Coulter, a cynical hack and who seems to lack any sort of personal ethics and simply does things to provoke reaction, get attention make some money. His writing expresses disdain for pretty much everyone but backwards looking white supremacists, despite the fact that he is a sexual fetishist for black men (but otherwise sees them as less than fully human, like he sees women).
What part of that, in your little mind, is seen as decent?
He encourages and coddles the unhinged until there are consequences, then he disavows them as one would expect from a cowardly twit.
Milo Yiannopoulos was legitimizing and downplaying pedophilia. You are starting to sound more and more dangerous with each post, and clearly need help.
“Jaxton”…I mean, Milo, is that you??
like Timothy answered I am amazed that someone able to make $7869 in four weeks on the
computer . find out here…
Great way to prove you aren’t a violent right wing Nazi, chasing people around screaming that they’re leftists and killing them.
