ANOTHER white-wing racist pedophile.
Here, white-wing darling Milo Yiannopoulos defends men having sex with children.
Even he great white herd has had enough –
Publishing company Simon & Schuster has cancelled a book deal for alt-right personality Milo Yiannopoulos, following the circulation of a video in which he condoned pedophilia. “After careful consideration @simonschuster and its @threshold_books have cancelled publication of Dangerous by Milo Yiannopoulos,” the company’s spokesperson Adam Rothberg tweeted on Monday. Yiannopoulos confirmed the cancellation on Facebook, writing “they cancelled my book.”
The company had previously defended its decision to offer Yiannopoulos a $250,000 book deal, saying that the book would not contain the hate speech for which Yiannopoulos is famous. But after a video of Yiannopoulos condoning sexual relationships between boys and older men went viral Sunday night, the publishing company faced renewed pressure to drop the deal.
Organizers of the Conservative Political Action Conference have disinvited professional provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos after a video interview emerged of him appearing to condone pedophilia emerged.
“Due to the revelation of an offensive video in the past 24 hours condoning pedophilia, the American Conservative Union has decided to rescind the invitation of Milo Yiannopoulos to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference,” ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp said in a statement Monday.
Yiannopoulos, an editor at Breitbart News, said in a Facebook post on Sunday that selective editing resulted in his words being taken out of context and that he does not support pedophilia, according to Mediate.
Well-known on the political fringes, the 32-year old writer has gained more prominence with the ascension of Donald Trump and former Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon into the White House.
It was Yiannopoulos’ appearance at the University of California – Berkeley and the ensuing protests that resulted in his cancellation that drew national attention and a presidential tweet.
“If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?” Trump tweeted after Yiannopoulos’ speech was cancelled after violent protests broke out on the campus.
The reaction was one of the reasons for this appearance at CPAC.
