Milo Mania: Do President Donald J. Trump and the CPAC Crowd Owe UC-Berkeley Demonstrators an Apology?

Mod: Poor Milo had a very bad day yesterday. He lost his Simon & Schuster book deal, CPAC changed its mind about having him give the keynote address at their convention, and Breitbart openly discussed firing him from his senior editor gig. Not the kind of sunny day the lost darling of the Trumpian right might have hoped for when he woke up that morning. Here is how The New York Times describes this unhappy tad's debacle.

Milo Yiannopoulos’s Pedophilia Comments Cost Him CPAC Role and Book Deal (The New York Times link): Milo Yiannopoulos, a polemical Breitbart editor and unapologetic defender of the alt-right, tested the limits of how far his provocations could go after the publication of a video in which he condones sexual relations with boys as young as 13 and laughs off the seriousness of pedophilia by Roman Catholic priests.

On Monday, the organizers of the Conservative Political Action Conference rescinded their invitation for him to speak this week. Simon & Schuster said it was canceling publication of “Dangerous” after standing by him through weeks of criticism of the deal. And Breitbart itself was reportedly reconsidering his role amid calls online for it to sever ties with him.

Mr. Yiannopoulos’s comments, which quickly created an uproar online over the weekend, put many conservatives in a deeply uncomfortable position. They have long defended Mr. Yiannopoulos’s attention-seeking stunts and racially charged antics on the grounds that the left had tried to hypocritically censor his right to free speech.

But endorsing pedophilia, it seemed, was more than they could tolerate. The board of the American Conservative Union, which includes veterans of the conservative movement like Grover Norquist and Morton Blackwell, made the decision to revoke Mr. Yiannopoulos’s speaking slot and condemn his comments on Monday.

Mod: How the mighty have fallen. It was only a little more than two weeks ago that the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, used the prestige of that mighty office to defend Milo's rights to free speech after riots caused the cancellation of his planned for address at UC Berkeley. Here is how Breitbart News described it (link).


Mod: Given yesterday's shocking revelations and the censorious reaction of the political right to all of that, perhaps President Trump and the rest of the reactionary crowd that enabled this creep now owe those misunderstood Berkeley demonstrators an apology?

  1. That cover photo… I can't stop laughing.

    Put it next to Kellyanne's inaugural 'drum major' getup and we've got a circus.

    This country is literally run by clowns.

  4. I'm not sure I see the connection with what happened in Berkeley. No one knew about those comments at the time the rioting occurred. They riot against anyone who disagrees with them. Even mainstream conservative views are shut down on college campuses. The left are the totalitarians. Don't recall any rioting at tea party rallies. By the way, rioting last night in Sweden by migrants. Trump was fight again. Need the wall and need to limit immigration from countries where people can't be vetted and where they don't believe in our constitution.

    2. What? More trouble in Sweden? Are you reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, and mistaking it for current news? Why isn't it on the news, in the newspaper, or even Fox News?

  6. "...massive riot.." Not! The photo used to dismiss the US Berkeley protest "riot" by a group that infiltrated the student's anti-Milo protest is foreshortened. It makes it look huge and that the whole campus was on fire. Outside one campus building, the whole place was not on fire. This shows that even a photo can distort the truth but this was the photo illustrating the Breitbart article.

  7. University of Berkeley should be funded by George Soros. The degrees that are handed out, are valuable only working for that guy.
    The alt left can't recognize that an openly Gay Conservative might differ from the "flock". The Progressives took him out.
    Milo did have diarrhea of the mouth and a momentary lapse in what he was saying.
    Kids are having sex at a younger age; true. But it's one of those shhhhh; secrets.
    The law says 18.
    This revelation, over time; will only strengthen the arguments that it is from the Progressive groups that intolerance comes from the left liberal leaning people.
    Just as Hillary Clinton lost; the Democratic Party will loose many.

  8. I need glasses, but that doesn't change the fact, that only those with Conservative backgrounds are; the most tolerant and support freedom of speech. There are always individual's from both Parties that are just Ko Koo; but the Liberals will chew you up and spit you out if your not part of the "only one mind think"party.

  18. 11:27 AM, what a sorry state we've come to when you Trumpies say things like I sleep good at night because I "have a Beretta under my pillow." You should be very careful and check the safety lest you accidentally blow your ears off.

  20. Organizers of any peaceful protest gathering should have a signal, the first sign of violence from infiltrators --
    move away from the scene and let the cops arrest those starting the riot. Then regroup. Minutes, hours later, whatever it takes. Maybe Milo hadn't yet made this vulgar comments that Simon and Shuster and CPAC based their actions on, but the protestors had enough background on him: anti-Semitism, anti- woman, trans gender bashing, that they wanted to protest his presence.

  23. DEBUNKING THREADCOUNT MYTHOLOGY:

    When looking for the perfect set of bed sheets we’ve all been sold the thread-count myth: The higher the thread-count, the better the sheets. Six-hundred, 800, 1000-thread counts must be better right?

    Well, sorry folks, but this is just a big, fat lie. You know that fancy, expensive set of sheets you recently bought because the label said 800 thread count? And you assumed, because it said that on the label, it must be true? Unfortunately, it probably isn’t.

    The reality is that an 800-thread count set of sheets is ACTUALLY a 200-thread count. For years, bedding companies have used shady marketing tactics to sell you fake thread count numbers — and they continue to do so because it’s so profitable. Customers are tricked into believing that they are buying a superior product when the truth is quite the opposite. Don’t believe the marketing hype. Here’s how it actually works.

    An honest 250-thread count sheet set is comprised of 125 vertical threads and 125 horizontal threads woven together. A 750-thread count sheet ALSO has 125 vertical threads and 125 horizontal threads! But in this situation, the manufacturers twist three threads together (similar to how you might braid hair) and then TRIPLE-count the thread!

    Furthermore, this triple-ply thread is made with cheaper, weak cotton that requires the extra plys for strength. The lower quality cotton is also much less durable, so sheet makers mask this fact by twisting more fibers together into a fat, ungainly thread!
