Milo Yiannopoulos Controversy Background — Free speech defender and flaming homosexual Milo Yiannopoulos was disinvited from the three-day CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) 2017 that starts tomorrow after old comments came to light in which he appeared to defend pedophilia.
He also lost a $250,000 book deal with Simon & Schuster.
The genesis of the charge is a 2015 Joe Rogan Experience interview. The irony is that during it, Milo not merely condemned the practice but outed the frequency it occurred with big-time Hollywood players.
Where he got in trouble was that while defending himself against Rogan’s attacks on religion — a subject about which Rogan revealed profound ignorance –Yiannopoulos revealed he had been molested by a priest at the age of 14 and declined to condemn the priest implying that he was the one to blame.
Milo obviously has issues but it is not fair to accuse him of defending pedophilia. Considering the extremely twisted people that fill the halls of our media, academia and government, this guy is not the enemy.
CPAC should have let him speak. Hopefully, Breitbart is smart enough to keep him as a writer.
Anyway, here is the Rogen interview with the most relevant part starting at about the 2:25:00 mark:
The subject returned in a Jan 4, 2016 Drunken Peasants podcast. Again Yiannopoulos was responding to attacks on religion along with being asked to respond to a leftist video accusing him of supporting pedophilia.
Here that is:
And here is Milo’s own explanation on Facebook
Breitbart.com has mistakenly been avoiding the subject for which Breitbart writer Lee Stranahan takes them to task. He has an interesting perspective on Milo that is worth watching.
