Forget The RNC, Emojis Are Getting Their Own Convention — This month, as hordes of Republicans and Democrats thunder across the United States to jaw and shout beneath their respective party banners, a far more staid convention is taking shape in San Francisco.

Yiannopoulos, who currently serves as's tech editor, has been hailed as a standout voice of the new "alt-right" movement.
