He's lost his book deal as well.

It actually infuriates me that THIS is the line. Not his blatant homophobia, not his target harassment campaigns, not his other bigotry, it's a clumsy phrasing on a video podcast.

Says everything about the state of the world at the moment that outright, unhidden, unreserved bigotry is completely fine - and in fact, defendable - but this is the point where he finally starts getting repercussions for the shit he spews. It's super satisfying to see a huge cunt get his comeuppance but it sucks that it wasn't for the actual bad shit he did.

Wait, how is it that we found out about his sympathetic views on pedophilia? I thought he was being denied his right to free speech!!!

It's comforting that society has a baseline for terrible behaviour that we won't tolerate. All manner of bigotry is fine, but we draw the line a pedophilia. All is not lost! We can work with this, people.

All those motherfuckers getting riled about protesters at Milo events need to be marched out and apologize for being belligerently ignorant now that they've learned about his pedophilia, role in gamergate, and so on.

Is it relevant to you that, in the same live stream that is being shown, he says the current age of consent is "about right"?

Is it also relevant to you that he's publicly exposed three separate pedophiles, one who is now facing charges?

Is it relevant to you that it appears that Evan McMullin had a hand in starting this media lynching, based on videos that have millions of views from over a year ago? The religious right wingers try to spin a gay man as a pedophile -- novel.

This one's embarrassing

Things the media has taught us this month: Milo is a pedophile, and Pewdiepie is a neo-Nazi.

EDIT: quoting phils, but the you is general

Additionally, the constant focus on Milo "still having free speech!" is making me lose faith in the general public's abilities to process abstract concepts

He may have written more about pedophilia over the last few years than any other journalist I can think of off the dome, but fuck research when you have a soundbite

I'm sorry but what's this hissyfit about?

The left has always criticized this guy and can't stand him. This comment to me is pretty on par with his other bullshit, no more and no less really.

The right is now banning him from CPAC - shouldn't your beef/outrage be with them? Aren't they the ones "fucking research" in favour of soundbytes?

I like this piece in the New Yorker. What is interesting is the knock down blow came from the right, and not the left. Milo and his ilk in the White Nationalist ridden "alt-right" are a threat to establishment conservatives. I'm honestly heartened to read the thoughts of some of those people as it gives me hope the GOP won't fall to the racist fringe.

How Alt-Right “Fellow-Traveller” Milo Yiannopoulos Cracked Up the Right - The New Yorker

Edited the post to make clear what I meant by referencing McMullen - the right wing establishment decided to go with the "gay man/pedophilia" connection once again, and it's pretty disgusting

That said, is your contention that, since the Left has always criticized Milo, my "beef/outrage" shouldn't be with them for jumping on the bandwagon with the Right here, because I should just expect them to not care about research since it's well known that they hate him?

what would you like "the Left" to do in this situation? this seems like "the Right's" domestic dispute.

Ah ok, that makes more sense then.

You just need to spend 5 mins at a cesspool like Free Republic to see that many of these people who are Alt-Right glorified Milo so long as the left was protesting him but now a good chunk/majority have reverted back to the "he's a pervert normalizing homos" line of thinking.

The GOP is going to have massive problems with fracturing. They are lucky they have held on so far - the visceral hatred of Obama kept them going and now they are drunk on victory juice. But the chickens will come home to roost eventually.
