As Milo Yiannopoulos’ book deal is cancelled after he defends paedophilia, this rabid alt-right nut is also banished by The American Conservative Union and faces demands to be sacked by fellow employees at ‘Breitbart’
There was only delight at news that the darling of the alt-right Milo Yiannopoulos had his £200,000 ($250,000) book deal with Simon & Schuster cancelled on Monday in the wake of him saying that relationships and sex “between younger boys and older men … can be hugely positive experiences”.
In a video that he has himself admitted to participating in the making of, Yiannopoulos said:
“[The age of consent is] not this black and white thing… We get hung up on this sort of child abuse stuff to the point where we are heavily policing consensual adults”.
When his interviewer answered: “It sounds like molestation to me”, Yiannopoulos, using a euphemism for male oral sex, without a thought for genuine victims of abuse, answered:
“It sounds like Catholic priest molestation to me. But you know what? I’m grateful for Father Michael [a man Yiannopoulos has claimed to have had sex with “when he was a younger teenager”]. I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him”.
Later in the interview, Yiannopoulos also claimed to have attended Hollywood parties with “very young boys in attendance for sex” and added:
“Pedophilia is not a sexual attraction to somebody 13 years old, who is sexually mature. Pedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty. Pedophilia is attraction to people who don’t have functioning sex organs yet who have not gone through puberty”.
Yiannopoulos has been for too long been indulged by the media and it is positive to learn that The American Conservative Union has also rescinded its invitation for him to speak at their CPac conference and that Breitbart employees “are prepared to leave the company if [he] is not promptly fired”. It is time, in fact, that this vile, self-publicising madman was sent to Siberia and then and only then will Simon & Schuster and others be forgiven for their epic errors of judgment.
