Milo Is Getting His Ass Kicked

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Following backlash over Yiannopoulos’s comments, The American Conservative Union (ACU) rescinded its invitation to Yiannopoulos to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are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.

    First: Milo messed up in the way he handled this the first time it was brought up. He has since clarified himself somewhat, and there’s no question that the Left has been waiting for a chance to bring him down.

    This is part of the risk of being a provocateur-if you get too outrageous, it can have consequences. Milo made a name for himself out of being outrageous and I do hope he can recover; the right needs more voices like his especially when it comes to free speech on campus.

    Milo, like Trump, is emblematic of where the conservative movement has gone wrong.  Why was he being invited to CPAC in the first place? Why is he so popular on the right? Because he articulates a coherent political philosophy? Because of his upstanding morals? No, because he pisses off the politically correct.  This is what the conservatism of Reagan has descended to and the reason I left the Republican Party ten years ago.  It’s not about ideas or small government or anything else.  It’s all about <i>getting those damned liberals</i>.  As long as Milo does that, as long as Trump does that, they can do anything they hell they want, rip every conservative principle to shreds or sell us out to the highest bidder.

    I am willing to bet that the only reason this is happening is that he is a conservative, and then, one that supports Trump. What is going on is a public display by the powers that of what will happen to any that dares stand up to them. If Milo was a leftist and anyone had complained about him, no matter what he had said or others said he said, they would have been accused of homophobia. Just like any criticism of Obama made you a racist. Dark fucking times ahead for us, but team blue drones (and many team red establishment types) could care less.

    Fuck the political correctness. Anyone still pretending this isn’t a totalitarian movement to control speech, and even though is a moron, or worse. Leftists are the only ones able to defend that shit. PC has absolutely nothing to do with civility or taking the higher ground. In fact, it only serves as a tool to promote the double standard the left uses as its weapon to beat down any attempt to challenge its idiocy. As I already said: if Milo was a leftist he would be able say and do whatever he wanted without any consequences. The douchebags now all gleefully out to destroy him, are doing it because he refuses to conform to the PC beliefs.

    I <i>knew</i> the moment I saw this post on the front page that there would be a comment from Alex either explaining at length how pedophilia is actually a leftist thing, or that Yiannopoulos is getting flak <i>only</i> from leftists, and <i>only</i> because he’s a Trumpalo.

    I always liked Milo in his rants on free speech rights.  His MSM opposition was always entertaining.  He played the shock-jock role well.  He seemed to be destined for quite a bit of money and fame.

    I don’t know how you survive protecting pedophiles.

    Why was he being invited to CPAC in the first place?

    I never understood this move by CPAC either.  Even if they agree with a lot of what Milo has said, didn’t they know the whole package?  I’d like to support MILO for his anti-PC stance as well, but I don’t see where he is what CPAC wants as their poster child.

    I don’t know how you survive protecting pedophiles.

    I watched his press conference today, you can catch it on youtube. A good first step.

    Stuff that I have no experience with, like child molestation, I tend to lean towards charity, empathy, and a great deal of slack. Victims all deal with tragedies of this nature in different ways. I suspected that he was using humor and flippancy as his way of coping with his molestation as a child. Yeah, I would have gone a different route but then I have never been in that situation.

    He resigned from Breitbart and is charting his own course, hopefully it will be measured and carefully deliberate.

    Sorry – but how is Milo a conservative? I get that he’s a free speech warrior. But I don’t see him with advocating any conservative policy positions. I’ll admit he states vehemently he’s not a lefty. But that doesn’t mean he’s a conservative.

    He’s a video game journalist. Let’s keep things in perspective here. It’s not like he’s a revered political thinker. He’s a video game journalist who likes to troll people.

    What a Grade A fucktard.

    Says the guy who sites Salon here repeatedly;

    Salon didn’t hesitate to take Milo to task for his views and provocateur status by hammering home that the Conservative Political Action Committee also broke ties with Milo, canceling his appearance to give the keynote speech following his comments that described his life experiences with homosexuality on the Drunken Peasants YouTube stream.

    The real news, however, is that during Salon’s attempted virtue signaling against one of their biggest antagonists, they also opted to do some house cleaning in the form of removing and rewriting the history of their own stance on pedophilia. In fact, they had previously hosted pro-pedophile content, in an attempt to help normalize the views on pedophilia.

    You should feel right at home with “Grade A Fucktards”.

    Looks like you lose on both counts, but I am willing to pretend it is because of your lack of English understanding instead of need to set up a strawman you can then knock down.

    First off, pedophilia is not a leftist thing. It is a despicable thing. Attacking a gay guy because he dared to leave the plantation and destroying him, is. They do the same to black people that dare to not be democrats. Who do you think invented the terms “House nggr” and “Uncle Tom” to make derogatory comments about black people that see through the evils of the left?

    Secondly, Milo never condoned pedophilia, and was discussing his personal experience. But unlike, lets say, George Takei (look up that Howard Stern interview and how people defended him after it came out he had spoken for it), who really made a pro pedophilia argument and got defended because he is a progressive and democrat by the very same crowd now demanding Milo’s scalp, Milo must be destroyed. After all, he was destroying them and their idiocy and the one thing the left will not tolerate is someone challenging their stupid dogma.

    So you are wrong on both counts. But other than that, you got it all right. Meh.

    Anti-PC is conservative. There are no leftist giving anything but lip service to the whole PC multicultural, one world government nonsense. The few that might claim to be leftist resisting these things are probably just confused about their “political orientation”.

    Says the guy who sites Salon here repeatedly;

    I would rarely cite them for facts, but for opinion or an artculated argument I might point to something on occasion. They’re not an objective news provider by any means.

    But I just LOVE that you’re saying this as you “site” Newstarget.

    And that at the same time you demand that I leave you alone you’re trying to rub your own boner on my leg.

    Too much! Stop it now!

    You should feel right at home with “Grade A Fucktards”.

    I see what you tried to do there but it’s very clumsy. 5 out of 10 at the most.

    Milo appears to be just another in the expanding group of people who use the ‘anti-PC’ banner as an excuse for being an arsehole.

    Yeah, resisting people that tell you they are going to not only arbitrate what you are allowed to say, but what you are allowed to think by being crass or in your face about it is far more of a problem, than wanting to control speech and though, for the greater good of course.

    Heh, you can’t parody this level of contempt for and downright tyrannical need to control people you think are too dumb to be allowed the freedom of either speech or thought.

    You mean the “opinion” held by the Salon staff that pedophilia is normal? But since that opinion was peer reviewed by each other and Maher, I guess it is now “fact”, the scientific process according to CM.

     you’re trying to rub your own boner on my leg.

    You think about my boner a lot, do you? Should I say ,”I’m flattered”?

     5 out of 10 at the most.
