Video: ‘Alt-Right’ Darling Milo Yiannopolous Seems To Defend Men Having Sex With Boys

The big news in LGBT political circles today are two videos featuring loathsome Milo Yiannopolous seeming to defend or give a pass to pedophilia.

Additionally, it appears he admits to being sexually molested as a young teen himself.

The Blaze reports:

Sunday morning, less than one day after the controversial announcement about the CPAC speaker lineup, video surfaced of Milo Yiannopoulos allegedly defending pedophilia in the past.

“We get hung up on this sort of child abuse stuff,” Yiannopoulos is heard saying in a video, acknowledging that he has a controversial point of view, “to the point where we are heavily policing consensual adults.”

“In the homosexual world, particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men — the sort of ‘coming of age’ relationship — those relationships in which those older men help those young boys discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable, sort of rock, where they can’t speak to their parents,” he added.

“It sounds like molestation to me,” an unnamed person tells Yiannopoulos in reply, likely an interviewer. “It sounds like Catholic priest molestation to me.”

“But you know what? I’m grateful for Father Michael. I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him,” Yiannopoulos replied, using a euphemism for male oral sex.

Yiannopoulos has since shared two posts on Facebook defending his language. Here’s the first:

There’s a video going around that purports to show me saying anti-semitic things (nope) and advocating for pedophilia (big nope). The shocking thing? It’s Republicans doing it. Sad to see establishment types collapse into the same tactics as social justice warriors: name calling, deceptively edited videos, confected moral outrage and public shaming. This is why they deserve to burn — and why they are burning. Here’s how I actually feel about pedophilia, which you’d know if you’d actually watched or read anything I’ve ever done. Or, you know, if you had two brain cells to rub together. There’s only one appropriate response to this sort of behavior, and it’s a gigantic FUCK YOU!

And his second Facebook post was much longer, which read, in part:

I have never defended and would never defend child abusers, as my reporting history shows. The world is messy and complicated, and I recognize it as such, as this furore demonstrates. But that is a red line for any decent person.

The videos do not show what people say they show. I *did* joke about giving better head as a result of clerical sexual abuse committed against me when I was a teen. If I choose to deal in an edgy way on an internet livestream with a crime I was the victim of that’s my prerogative. It’s no different to gallows humor from AIDS sufferers.

National Review, whose journalists are tweeting about this, published an article defending Salon for giving a pedophile a platform.

I did say that there are relationships between younger men and older men that can help a young gay man escape from a lack of support or understanding at home. That’s perfectly true and every gay man knows it. But I was not talking about anything illegal and I was not referring to pre-pubescent boys.

I said in the same “Drunken Peasants” podcast from which the footage is taken that I agree with the current age of consent.

I shouldn’t have used the word “boy” when I talked about those relationships between older men and younger gay men. (I was talking about my own relationship when I was 17 with a man who was 29. The age of consent in the UK is 16.) That was a mistake. Gay men often use the word “boy” when they refer to consenting adults. I understand that heterosexual people might not know that, so it was a sloppy choice of words that I regret.

This rush to judgment from establishment conservatives who hate Trump as much as they hate me, before I have had any chance to provide context or a response, is one of the big reasons gays vote Democrat.

Many in the conservative world are already calling for Milo to be booted as the keynote speaker of CPAC this week.

Here’s two of the videos folks are talking about. One clip seems to be from a January 2016 episode of the “Drunken Peasants” podcast.

Larry Wilmore To Loathsome Milo: “You Can Go F*ck Yourself”

Every bit as loathsome as you’ve heard, Breitbart editor and professional child Milo Yiannopoulos made the most of his appearance on last night’s HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher.

Although he only did the one-on-one segment near the beginning of the show with Maher, he did join the panel for the online post-show segment.

And that’s where things got rocky.

From Mediaite:

Yiannopoulos was defending his past remarks about transgender people and Larry Wilmore got heated with him over that, saying similar discriminatory remarks have been made against gay people.

But things got personal when Yiannopoulos told Maher he needs to start “inviting higher IQ guests” on the show. Wilmore told him, “You can go fuck yourself.”

He went off on Yiannopoulos and told him “go fuck yourself” again for trolling Leslie Jones over Ghostbusters.

The surprise of the evening was Maher treating Yiannopolous with such kid gloves.

One example – the exchange in this segment, when the icky Milo says of transgender people:

Yiannopolous: “I think women and girls should be protected from having men who are confused about their sexual identities from their bathrooms.”

Maher: “That’s not unreasonable.”

Women and children are in no danger of transgender folks wanting to use the bathroom. Maher’s agreement was a bit chilling.

Milo really is rather infantile, and lashes out just to get a response or attention. It’s his own form of self-entertainment.

Earlier in the show, Maher asked him about rumors that he doesn’t hire gay people. This was his reply:

“Oh, no! You can’t trust them to show up to work on time. Too much drugs, too much sex, they’re always making excuses,” said Yiannopoulos, inspiring boos from the audience. He then turned to the audience and giggled: “I’m just kidding. You’re easy. You’re very easy. Very easily triggered. It’s pathetic.”

And his body language is oddly telling. He frequently drops his chin and looks through his eye brows when addressing people. According to body language experts, “A lowered head covers the neck with the chin and hence can be a defensive posture that can occur as a result of any perceived threat (not just physical threat). It can also be a sign of defiance or caution, for example when showing respect to an enemy (‘You are strong and I do not trust you’).”

Hundreds Protest And Shut Down Homocon Milo Yiannopoulos’ Event In California

While I don’t support violence as a form of protest, I do support the hundreds of protesters right to raise their voices.

From CNN:

A speech by right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos’ at UC Davis was over before it even started Friday after protests erupted, forcing sponsors to cancel the event. Thirty minutes before the Breitbart tech editor was scheduled to speak, the UC Davis College Republicans canceled the controversial talk after consulting with the university’s police department and student affairs officials. Former pharmaceutical executive, Martin Shkreli had also been scheduled to speak at the event.

“I am deeply disappointed with the events of this evening,” said Interim Chancellor Ralph J. Hexter. “Our community is founded on principles of respect for all views, even those that we personally find repellent. As I have stated repeatedly, a university is at its best when it listens to and critically engages opposing views, especially ones that many of us find upsetting or even offensive.”

Earlier in the evening, protesters blocked access to the venue. Surrounding the lecture hall with signs, they chanted, “Say it loud, say it clear, racists are not welcome here.” Yiannopoulos posted on Facebook that the event had been canceled “after violence from left-wing protestors.”

UK News Host Obliterates Alt-Right Provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos

Professional provocateur and openly gay face of the ‘alt-right,’ Milo Yiannopoulos, had his butt handed to him by Channel 4 News’s Cathy Newman where he claimed the wage gap and university rape culture is “not real”.

Yiannopoulos, banned for life from Twitter for his inflammatory discourse, was confronted by Newman for his inflammatory discourse over, and in particular his contrary definition of feminism.

Yiannopoulos attempted to dismiss Newman’s criticism by saying his online engagement was meant as “humor.”

ABC Reporter Calls Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopolous A 13-Year Old Idiot

You may have heard of Milo Yiannopoulos, the loathsome toad who among other things is captivated by trolling folks on social media for his own sense of delight.

The openly gay (I hate that the LGBT community has to include him in our tribe) Tech editor for anti-LGBT media site Breitbart, and a self-proclaimed entrepreneur was kicked off Twitter for life for his direct attacks on people.

ABC News’s Terry Moran interviewed Yiannopoulos for a piece on trolling, and I’m guessing Yiannopoulos’ employer Breitbart wasn’t thrilled with the results.

ABC’s Terry Moran launched a full scale attack on Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos as part of a feature for ABC Nightline, calling Milo an “idiot,” “revolting” and comparing him to a “13-year-old” child.

The piece centered around the topic of trolling, with ABC describing Milo as “the tip of the iceberg in a rising tide of hate and abuse in social media, one he clearly sees as a noble purpose.” Asked by Moran whether he would call Leslie Jones a “dude” to her face, Milo confirmed that he “probably would.”

“Then you’re an idiot,” Moran angrily replied.

The segment continues, describing Milo as a “self-proclaimed troll” who “makes a career out of sparking outrage, spreading vitriol at many and helping to legitimize a movement of negativity growing on the internet.”

“You’re going to go after somebody’s body to go after their ideas, what grade are you in? Are you a 13-year-old?,” to which Milo said that the real problem lies with the body positivity movement and the “idea that you can tell women they’ll be happy and health at any size.”

“My rudeness creates conversation, provokes people into saying oh what a monster and then 20% of people start talking about what I was actually saying I will consider my career to be a terrific success,” Milo added.

You really should watch just to get an idea of the hideous people out there who live to insult for sport.
