Milo is a racist, sexist, transphobic, anti-Semitic internet troll who was finally banned from Twitter last year after directing a disgusting hate campaign against Leslie Jones. How was this NOT going to end badly? He is the famous version of the stereotypical 4chan gamer who lives in his Momma’s basement in his tighty whities and delights in his anonymity. His activist intent is impossible to discern; does he truly think all women would be happier working in the home, being catcalled and groped and told “this isn’t going to suck itself“? Or is that part of his schtick? How conservative is that? Would he say that to Nikki Haley after she gives a speech at the UN?
The Log Cabin Republicans were only allowed into CPAC last year. They have jumped from that to Milo? How would the FRC react?
He is a self-proclaimed leader of the “alt-right“, a blatant white supremacy group. They have bastardized the term “politically correct,” and their entire goal is to end it. In their view, mainstream conservatism is full of it. What we see as reactionary, Milo calls “shock value,” and he encourages more and more of it. By doing so, he has mainstreamed bigotry.
Below is an excerpt from one of Milo’s writings on Breitbart. Keep in mind this is the same man who was invited to speak at the conference that would include Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Mike Pence, Scott Walker, etc.
But male sexual appetites are easily satisfied, despite what women will tell you. Blow jobs really aren’t that difficult, and in any case most blokes are fine with a pizza and a wank. For many men, sex is a nice bonus, but it’s not essential. When you introduce a low-cost alternative to women that comes without all the nagging, insecurity and expense, frankly men are going to leap in headfirst.
Another reason men might be enthusiastic about female-free sex is obvious: the sociopathic, man-hating feminism we see so much of on television and in our newspapers today is turning men off dealing with women altogether. Constant whinging about “toxic masculinity,” “manspreading,” “mansplaining,” the bogus gender pay gap and the absurd campus rape culture myth are pushing the sexes apart, fostering mistrust and fear.
The fact that wacky, misandrist intersectional feminists are an unpopular minority — as a result of their horrid influence, just 18 per cent of women now call themselves feminists — doesn’t matter because they hold court in the media and on campuses, and young women are starting to parrot discredited and absurd nonsense about the “oppressive patriarchy,” picking up on a victimhood script they believe they can leverage for social and professional advantage.
In response, men are simply checking out, giving up on women and retreating into porn and video games. I call it the “sexodus,” and its immediate victims aren’t men, but women, who are being consigned to singledom as men lose interest in them or are simply too exhausted or fearful of the social consequences of approaching girls romantically. The truth is, men get along okay without women, unlike women, who become shrieking, neurotic messes if they’re still single in their 30s.
This is the man the Conservatives decided they wanted to associate with. This is the man the Conservatives made the key note speaker at their convention. However, Milo’s remarks on pedophilia were too much. The video that contains the remarks about child molestation has been around since July 2016.
“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 on Monday.
“We continue to believe that CPAC is a constructive forum for controversies and disagreements among conservatives, however, there is no disagreement among our attendees on the evils of sexual abuse of children,” he added.
Yiannopoulos told The Hollywood Reporter that his presentation would focus on his “experiences in America battling feminists, Black Lives Matter, the media, professors and the entertainment industry.” (CBS)
In addition to losing out on the CPAC conference, Simon & Schuster and Threshold Editions announced they canceled their book deal with Milo. Numerous people are calling for Breitbart to fire him. It looks like Milo may have finally gone too far for more than just the conservatives at CPAC. Unfortunately, they did not feel this way years ago.
