WikiLeaks Julian Assange Defends Milo Yiannopolous

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange chimed in via Twitter regarding the Milo Yiannopoulos “pedophilia” controversy last night.

It was just this past Saturday that Yiannopolous was officially announced to give the keynote speech at CPAC this week, but the next day video came to light where Milo seemed to defend adult men having sex with young boys.

In short time, Yiannopoulos was disinvited to CPAC, and Simon & Schuster cancelled his $250K book deal.

Tweeted Assange: “US ‘liberals’ today celebrate the censorship of right-wing UK provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos over teen sex quote.”

He followed up with, “Issue is ‘liberals’ cheering on a clearly illiberal act — book censorship — for political reasons with morality as cover.”

Yiannopoulos is holding a press conference at 3 pm today in New York City.
