The backside of Milo Yiannopoulos is used to getting a lot of attention, he even brags about it. But the pounding of late I doubt he very much welcomes. Milo was riding high, a killer book deal “Dangerous” which I was much looking forward to, was slated for a March release with Amazon seeing record advance sales. And a surprise invite by CPAC to be a keynote speaker, curious on it’s face given his background but this is the year probity get’s its ass kicked and propriety (Trump as leader of the free world, more alternative universe shit). But much like a ,”Grab her by the pussy” garage tape emerging, we come to find out that Milo is just peechy with pedophilia;
During the campaign I had a minor dust up with one of our then regulars ( don’t remember who it was, so many deserted this place) over a Megyn Kelly interview on The Stern Show. These type of forums lend itself to hyperbole, being campy, and general over the top provocativety. Megyn tried to stir the conversation to serious matters but Stern wanted to talk sex and bra size. Concerning this interview Milo later said his words were misconstrued. TBH, that is going to be a real hard sell. He brought up pedophilia, not Rogan. This was all Milo, and now he is paying a heavy price;
Milo Yiannopoulos’s Dangerous will no longer be published by Simon & Schuster.
The Breitbart News editor’s book deal was canceled after comments Yiannopolous appeared to make about pedophilia surfaced online.
“After careful consideration, Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint have canceled publication of Dangerous by Milo Yiannopoulos,” the publisher said in a statement released Monday.
But it gets worse;
Following backlash over Yiannopoulos’s comments, The American Conservative Union (ACU) rescinded its invitation to Yiannopoulos to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are expected to appear.
This is one of those “A Bridge Too Far” moments. Folks will countenance a lot, pedophilia is not one of those things. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if the whole “I had consensual sex with a priest at 14………..and liked it” bit was made up to look edgy, and that may ultimately be his defacto fall back but this is really bad. Lives have been ruined by such behavior, to normalize this dynamic in any way is beyond the pail. Adults by nature are authority figures to kids, throw in the “my priest” angle, double whammy, like God is sanctioning such behavior. I’m pretty confident predator priests will get theirs come judgment day, but we here on earth want some justice as well and the Catholic Church has done themselves a disservice in ignoring/covering up blatantly criminal behavior.
Yeah, I’m willing to listen to Milo as he addresses this, still going to buy his book, whoever prints it.
Michael Vick brought himself back from the abyss, so did Mel Gibson, hell even Bill Clinton salvaged his life and without the least bit of remorse, but he was a democrat, they care little about contrition anyway. No, Milo has got a mammoth task in front of him.
