Milo Yiannopoulos Resigns From Breitbart News Amid Pedophilia Controversy

Milo Yiannopoulos, the conservative media personality under fire for comments he made that appeared to condone sex with minors, has resigned from Breitbart News, the platform that has helped boost his popularity on the far right.

“I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately. This decision is mine alone.”

At a press conference, Yiannopoulos, 32, said that he used a “poor choice of words” in a 2016 interview.

In the video, a 2016 episode of podcast “The Drunken Peasants,” Yiannopoulos discussed his own experience with sexual assault as a teenager. He argued in the clip that relationships between “younger boys and older men” could be beneficial.

“I regret the things that I said,” he said, while calling the furor over his comments a “cynical media witch hunt.” He said that critics waited until “the most damaging possible moment” to highlight the video.

“They don’t care about victims, they don’t care about children, they only care about bringing me down,” he said.

He said that  “I’ve never apologized for anything before and I don’t anticipate doing it again.”

He even equated what he does to the humor of standup comedians, as he characterized himself as an entertainer even though he had been a technology editor at Breitbart. He said that his role had “mutated” as he gained attention.

Donald Trump’s campaign certainly helped boost his profile, as well as Trump’s appointment of Steve Bannon, the chairman of Breitbart, as campaign chairman and later chief strategist in the White House. Yiannopoulos said it was Bannon who brought him into the company, but said that he had not talked to him in a while.

“Steve Bannon is one of the foremost and brilliant political operatives of his generation,” Yiannopoulos said.

The Conservative Political Action Conference had announced over the weekend that he would be their keynote speaker at their upcoming conference. But there was then a backlash against the invite, fueled by a video that resurfaced on a conservative blog in which Yiannopoulos appears to defend pedophilia.

The American Conservative Union, which holds the conference, then disinvited Yiannopoulos, calling for him to “answer the tough questions and we urge him to immediately further address these disturbing comments.”

Later on Monday, Simon & Schuster’s Adam Rothberg announced that the company and its Threshold Editions division would be canceling its publication of Yiannopoulos’ book, “Dangerous.” It was due for release on June 13. At the press conference, he said that other publishers are interested in the title. He also said that he would be launching a new media company.

“I don’t think this is going to harm my profile,” he said, predicting that more people will read what he has to say about free speech.

In a Facebook post in response to the controversy, Yiannopoulos claimed that the video was “deceptively edited,” and said he was “horrified” by allegations that he was an advocate for pedophilia. He noted that he had been a victim of childhood sexual abuse.

“If it somehow comes across (through my own sloppy phrasing or through deceptive editing) that I meant any of the ugly things alleged, let me set the record straight: I am completely disgusted by the abuse of children,” he wrote in the post.

Yiannopoulos recently appeared on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” where he criticized Sarah Silverman, Lena Dunham, and Amy Schumer, and discussed his issues with actress Leslie Jones.

With outrageous insults and comments that have been labelled as sexist and racist,  Yiannopoulos’s appearances triggered protests on college campus, including a demonstration that turned violent at University of California at Berkeley and forced the event’s cancellation. But the furor only seemed to add to the persona that  Yiannopoulos was trying to create, as a defender of free speech against political correctness.

“America has a gigantic free speech problem,” he said, saying that his “rapid rise” is “testament to the fact that America is crying out for somebody who will say the un-sayable.”

Yet his statements crossed a line with CPAC and his publisher — as well as other platform. Well before the book deal and that speaking engagement he was banned from Twitter after making offensive and disparaging remarks about Jones and her performance in “Ghostbusters.” She complained that it led to a flurry of racist and hateful rhetoric directed her way.

    one hate-spewing demagogue down, many to go.

  2. Rudy Mario says:

    Amazing how the red neck – neo nazi – evangelical axis members along with its satellite Breitbart are all coming our massively to support this guy. Yes the far left freak sympathizers are also here supporting him.

  3. Are you believing the mainstream media on Milo? Then you should listen to the guys who ORIGINALLY INTERVIEWED HIM for the interview he is now being crucified for. This interview, by the way, was done over a year ago and had a quarter million views – and no one brought up the accusations that are now being brought against him, namely condoning pedophilia.

    • Caligari says:

      So you want me to listen to a podcast where a dude spins that he didn’t mean what he said, when I saw a video WITH MY OWN EYES where Milo says:

      “Some of those relationships between younger boys and older men, the sort of coming of age relationships, the relationships in which those older men help those young boys to discover who they are, and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable and sort of a rock where they can’t speak to their parents. “

      He also references being at parties where young boys were having sex with older men. Saw it, heard it.

      Also, he says:

      “No, no, no. You’re misunderstanding what pedophilia means… 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,”

      He goes on to say consent is “arbitrary and oppressive.”

      You are lying and spinning. His words are what they are. He’s a creep, he said boys several times in reference to sex with men, and this whole defense of his is sad and creepy.

      • Ryan james says:

        What is the difference between young boys and older men, And dating a cougar and coming of age.
        2 – if the thirteen year old looks 21 is that pedophilia before you find out, because in high school some of my classmates walked to the college friday night, and thise girls technically commited pedophilia

  4. Caligari says:

    Hey Bogeyman…

    There was a man named Edgar M. Welch, google him, who broke into the pizza place in question armed with a weapon to free the “sex trafficked kids” that the Clintons were making money from.

    There were no sex trafficked kids in the pizza place. The very fact that you think the Clintons of all people are so cash-strapped they would engage in sex trafficking shows how disconnected you are from common sense and reality. Yes, the only way Bill and Hillary can figure out how to make money is literally sex slaves.

    But then the narrative changed because that was too ridiculous and now the story is Podesta is running the sex trafficking of minors out of a pizza parlor.

    What planet do you live on and when do you return?

    And how does attacking anyone make what Milo said ok? Why are you defending a guy who talks about the merits of man-boy sex?

  5. Wendy Quinn says:

    Disappointed that the publishing company cancelled his book deal. This is a witch hunt for anyone associated with Trump.Can’t stand Bill Maher’s style or approach, that show was not an interview by any sense of the word. It was banter about nothing.

  6. Gabe says:

    This is one of Trumps Boys let’s see if Trump bails this – lititle film thrower out.. 13yr old boys you got to be kidding you sick man…

    • Luke 6:45King James Version (KJV)
      45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

  7. Smith Cassidy says:

    And right after that, they go after the line of women and girls who have accused creepy Donny of inappropriate advances and/or sexual misconduct.

    If only there was a tape of Trump admitting what a foul old perv he is…

  8. Smith Cassidy says:

    What’s “practically the same thing”?

  9. Caligari says:

    I don’t understand your point. You think men who advocate man-boy sexual relationships should be left alone on both sides of the partisan divide?

    Creepy.

  10. Jinxi says:

    ‘Yee-Ah-No’ be tripp’n, no?
    Where’d he get that dye job?
    Things that ‘go Trump’ in the night?

  11. Harry Buskin says:

    There is free speech, but there is also something called the “sense of situation”. Who would walk in downtown Riyadh, preaching co-existence with the Jews? Who would preach Neo-Nazi propaganda in Berkeley?

    Fools walk in …

    I support Milo and I think hes great. always welcome at my table….keep up the good work MILO!

  13. taraneh says:

    “Far right” Breitbart!!! LOL. The Chicago community “organizer”pupil of Carl Marx, Frank Marshall Davis, and Rev Wright, and friend of unrepentant domestic terrorists Bernardine Dohrn and bill ayers, is not an UBER FAR LEFT comrade, but Breitbart is “far right”!! Ok just stop there! MoveOn folks!! LOL!

    • Chris says:

      It is a home for white supremacists. Check out the comments for ANY topics. I get a kick out of the fact that this loser thinks he is doing any damage to an extremist web site only taken seriously by the alt Right.

  14. Mark says:

    ultimately let go because he would overshadow Trump at CPAC, can only be one right-wing hateful thug-King at one time at one place

  15. Scott says:

    Sad day in America.

  16. David says:

    Looks like somebody’s fifteen minutes is up….

  17. dooby says:

    Ah, because he’s a good liberal celebrity, who celebrates “gay marriage”. Subtle and arbitrary difference, isn’t it?

    • Caligari says:

      I think the 80-year old Mr. Sulu should also be banned from CPAC, Simon & Shuster, and Breitbart if he made similar comments. Happy?

  18. Richard Head says:

    Words mean things. Pedophilia is an attraction to prepubescent children. Milo has emphatically denounced that.

  19. Lorna Kemp says:

    “Seriouslly, “Pizzagate”? What a dolt.

  20. Sticks and stones, sticks and stones…

  21. People Understand says:

    “They don’t care about victims, they don’t care about children, they only care about bringing me down,”
    “They don’t care about refugees, they don’t care about Muslims, they only care about bringing Trump down,” words of truth about the left

    • Caligari says:

      Oh please. The Right cares about the DACA kids or they want them kicked out of the country? That rhetoric works both ways.

      That was Milo playing the victim card with a self-serving statement. How the right has fallen. Thought you hated people playing the victim card.

    • Smith Cassidy says:

      You wouldn’t recognize truth if it was sitting on your chest.

  22. deridealldems says:

    “Milo Yiannopoulos, the conservative media personality under fire for comments he made that appeared to condone sex with minors” Opening sentence in the Variety article is a prime example of fake news and/or sloppy, lazy reporting. Milo NEVER condoned or appeared to condone sex with minors.
    I look forward to the day you leftist rags are out of business.

    • Smith Cassidy says:

      “Appeared to condone sex with minors” is perfectly accurate, you’re either in the right wing bubble or not very experienced with the nuance of language.

      The only fake thing is the right’s outrage and abuse – over and over and over – of the word fake.

      It was so “fake” his book deal died, so “fake” a conservative group canceled his appearance, so “fake” he quit his job at one the worst “news” sites on the planet.

      Keep spiing. So much for the right’s ability to take responsibility for their actions. What a joke.

    • Lorna Kemp says:

      “I look forward to the day you leftist rags are out of business.”

      Yet here YOU are, having clicked-through to show your support- the advertisers thank you.

      • Tom says:

        Don’t you realize this story is getting hits from Drudgereport? ADvertisers may like fine but this board is about to get pounded by opposition viewpoints by anti-fake news readers.

  23. Danny Ashman says:

    milo is great. i support him.

  24. MC Karimbo says:

    it appears he was set up. This is a sad day when they can do someone in like this. It will surely make him a better person in the future. Truly a very talented and bright young man.

  25. Milo will return stronger than ever. The leftist failed.

    • Smith Cassidy says:

      Yeah, it was the left fault. Got it. What’s it like to believe in and blame the boogieman for everything you don’t understand as an adult? Probably brings back fond memories of childhood…

    • Paula Wagstaff says:

      Oh wake up and stop defending the indenfensible and I am right wing, but I HATE what he said….
      There is NO I repeat NO positive outcome for men to be with young boys….

      • Tom says:

        *face-palm. Watch the original video, not clips from “news” sources, and certainly don’t rely on their text alone..

  26. I like Milo. And I admire him for resigning from Breitbart – on his own – and out of respect for his colleagues who may very well become “tainted by association” if he decides to cling on. Milo may have flippantly and recklessly uttered his comments regarding pedophilia creating an impression that he supports and engages in such abominable practices. I know he would never abuse or harm young people. I will keep Milo in my prayers, that God will help him surmount and overcome the repugnance and prejudicial barbs leveled upon him by his attackers, that he will stay healthy and safe in his travels. God bless you Milo. Keep on trucking.

    • Caligari says:

      You’re naive. He was fired. This was an orchestrated, negotiated exit so Breitbart could save face and he wouldn’t go after them.

  27. Steve Koken says:

    As a family law attorney, I see battered women, sexually abused children, and physically abused children, who defend their relationship with their abusers. I’ve actually had the utterly sureal experience of listening to a mother describe her 14 year old daughter as a “home wrecking slut” who “seduced” her uncle into a “relationship” thereby causing his divorce. The 14 year old was in complete agreement that she was the “pursuer” in the “relationship” and that it was somehow “beneficial” to her.

    This is complete baloney of course. A 14 year old doesn’t have the capacity to enter into a “relationship” with an adult, and there is no defense to an adult preying on a young child. None. She was the victim of sexual assault. Whether she was able to view it as such is every bit as irrelevant as whether or not a victim of spousal abuse tries to reconcile with the abuser. These fantasies that somehow everything is “acceptable” and “alright” is part of how victims cope with their abuse.

    So, why is it acceptable for Milo Yiannopoulos, a victim of sexual child abuse, to be stripped of his speaking slot by CPAC, stripped of his book deal, and have to resign from his post at Breitbart? Because he’s formed the same coping mechanisms as many other victims have? Because he went into a podcast interview and said he thought his abuse was a “relationship”, that he thought he was the “pursuer” in it, and that he had determined that, in some ways, the relationship was beneficial to him?

    So, the guy isn’t known for being politically correct. He also isn’t known for pedophilia nor has he ever, to my knowledge, been accused of pedophilia. So are we really throwing the kid in the dumpster because of this? If so, we live in a sick, sick, world … and it’s not sick because of anything Milo Yiannopoulos has said or done.

    • Caligari says:

      Hey dubious attorney…

      He advocates man-boy sex and relationships, says he’s been to parties with young boys having sex with older men, parses out the word pedophilia, and is a general degenerate creep. But you think, like a liberal, its ok because he’s a “victim?”

      Do you know what Milo said about playing the victim card?

      “Nobody should be playing the victim. Nobody should be doing this grievance, oppression bullshit malarkey. Everyone should just get on with achieving everything that they can in their lives.”

      Milo Yiannopolis in an interview with Out magazine, 2016.

    • rodittis says:

      Steve Koken: I agree, I don’t think Milo is a pedophile, no matter how you define it. I suspect he is attempting to re-cast his former abuse as something he “choose” in order to avoid dealing it.
      As far as why he was stripped of his podium ( so to speak ), I think you need to consider the concept of subtext When Milo makes his statements regarding women and minorities and Muslims, he may claim a philosophical approach ( “I’m fighting the suffocating forces of political correctedness!” ) but the subtext is all hatred and bigotry. A lot of people respond to the subtext, some of them to shun him and some of them — and this is key — to validate their own bigotry. The latter are using Milo’s philosophy and slick approach to tell themselves they don’t have to re-examine their own values, they can continue as they are.
      Now suddenly the subtext has changed to a topic they *are* uncomfortable with and the fine points of Milo’s argument are lost on them ( because, really, they were always lost on them).
      So basically it comes down to this : slamming women, minorities, Muslims, etc is OK but gay teenage sex is not. If you don’t believe me, go check the comments on anything he’s written. Even if Milo isn’t technically being a bigot, the comment section is like a Klan meeting. Despite whatever message Milo thought or more likely claims he was getting out, the majority of his followers have their own agenda which apparently doesn’t include either pedophilia or teenage gay sex.
      I wouldn’t however worry over much about poor misunderstood Milo’s future. He’ll find a new podium. Contrary to any claims otherwise, free speech is alive and well in America.

    • Bert says:

      Mr. Koken, I don’t believe Mr. Yiannopoulos lost his associations because people wanted to be mean to him, piling on the fact that he experienced sexual interactions with an adult when he was a minor. I believe he was disassociated because the groups didn’t want to be seen as normalizing pedophilia whether it was with prepubescent minors or a post-pubescent minors (which is Mr. Yiannopoulos’s distinction it seems between right or wrong). I’m glad you don’t believe in normalizing this behavior as witnessed by your belief that a 14 year old should not be having a, “relationship,” with an adult. I concur. But our position is not shared throughout much of the gay community. Mr. Yiannopoulos’s own statements point to this when he talks about how such, “relationships,” can be beneficial. I feel fairly confident there is a lot of conversation going on today in the, “gay world,” as Mr. Yiannopoulos puts it, about this issue with not a few stating something to the effect that, “straights don’t get it, it’s different in our world. This is not unusual.” Indeed, most of the gay men I’ve known had such, “relationships,” when they were young and as you know, those abused are more inclined to abuse themselves. So while I can sympathize with your concern that this former victim is receiving more, “shaming,” at the hands of those disassociating with him I cannot fault them for doing so considering the greater danger of being seen promoting such, “relationships,” as a continued association could be construed to do. Mr. Yiannopoulos is a medium, someone who stands between truth and an audience, passing on to adults and minors the idea that such, “relationships,” between 14 year olds and adults CAN be good. With such, “media,” positions of responsibility we are held to higher standards and the higher up we are, the further we will fall if step out of norms considered moral. I do agree with you that he is probably in a bad place right now, rejected by, “his people,” in both the liberal and conservative worlds. I hope he has someone to watch over him; it’s not out of the question he could hurt himself. Fare Thee Well.

    • Tom says:

      Watch the full video. You must be anti-gay.
      People will watch the video and see how lame your stupid stock response is. It’s not a response actually, it’s a poorly reported out-of-context pseudo-quote by a reporter with an agenda. How much do you get paid anyway to peddle fake news?

    • Caligari says:

      You’re creepy.

      CPAC, Breitbart, and Simon and Shuster won’t touch this guy with a 10 foot pole.

      These are his words:

      “Some of those relationships between younger boys and older men, the sort of coming of age relationships, the relationships in which those older men help those young boys to discover who they are, and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable and sort of a rock where they can’t speak to their parents.”

      He goes on to say consent is “arbitrary and oppressive.”

    • Purist Lortarian says:

      I agree with most of what you said. However as a “family law attorney” you should know that the age of consent in some U.S. States is 14. This makes your statement “a 14 year old doesn’t have the capacity to enter into a “relationship” with an adult” legally false. An attorney with this much ignorance of the law concerns me.

  28. Nanny Mo says:

    We all know that freedom of speech in America is a joke.

    • rodittis says:

      Freedom of speech means you can’t be jailed for what you say and the government can’t shut down your microphone/podium/paper/website/etc. It doesn’t mean people won’t argue back at you or call you names. It doesn’t mean political organizations have to keep you on their podium. It does’t mean news organizations have to keep you on their paper. So in that context freedom of speech is very much alive in America.
      What is a joke is how people misconstrue the statement to think you’re allowed to say what you want without any repercussions.

    • Caligari says:

      Yes. You can’t advocate pedophilia and keep your job.

      Why defend his creepy statements?

  29. Tom says:

    Notice you left out the “he’s gay” part. Does “The Elements of Style” have a section detailing when and when not to mention this in an article? Or is it omitted in situations where it could make him remotely sympathetic to the reader?

  30. The establishment, in league with the hard-left, had to get rid of Milo. Yeah, he’s a weird guy and I don’t condone his lifestyle, but he was indeed landing blows against the left. This was a hit-job.

  31. Rick Wilson says:

    Milo’s comments did not approve of sex with minors. Read the transcript of the tape.

    Milo not only condemned pedophiles, he outed 3 of them.

    • Caligari says:

      Here’s a direct uninterrupted quote of Milo:

      “Some of those relationships between younger boys and older men, the sort of coming of age relationships, the relationships in which those older men help those young boys to discover who they are, and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable and sort of a rock where they can’t speak to their parents. ”

      You’re a creepy mccreepster

  32. S. Turner says:

    Just another hit job.

  33. Kitcha says:

    This is once again a hit job from Libs. Milo was sexually assaulted when he was 13. anyone who has ever heard a word Milo has said, know how he talks, with lots of sarcasm and British humor, that all by itself is offputting to libs.

    He explained it as just a poor choice of words, and the media doesn’t care. Yet when it is THEIR poor choice of words, lies or misspeaking, all they need to do is say “sorry” and move on.

    Milo, get your own radio show, your own internet show, or start your own tv station like Beck, Levin and others have done. You will have your following and they won’t be able tom shut you up.

    • Caligari says:

      But who will sponsor that show? You need advertisers who don’t want to be associated a guy literally saying an adult man being attracted to a post pubescent 13 year old boy is not pedophilia.

      Why are you defending this creep?

      • Alex says:

        How well does CTR/Shareblue pay their shills, Caligari? Because you’re either a radical left shill or a complete moron. Probably both. Have you listened to what Milo said? He does not endorse pedophilia and has a strong track record of journalism that shows this.

        This whole thing is an attack by the left to silence Milo, and unfortunately many people just believe what they are told by biased media outlets instead of looking into the issue for themselves. His comments are taken out of context and misconstrued – Milo has come out strongly AGAINST pedophilia, like every sane person.

        I fully support Milo (as do many) and I sincerely hope you can start thinking for yourself instead of parroting leftist talking points.

      • Robert Sheen says:

        …and do you publicly condemn the teachings of the Quran which permits marriage (ONLY older men to young female CHILDREN) at the age of 6…?

  34. Caligari says:

    Because he calls Trump “Daddy” and writes for conservative Breitbart?

    • Ah, you must be a campus leftist who hates free speech. I’m surprised you didn’t call him a nazi, too.

      • Caligari says:

        How about I’m a person that doesn’t like pedophilia, thinks its an abomination, and sex between boys and men is abhorrent?

        So you think this direct quote from Milo is ok, then?

        “Some of those relationships between younger boys and older men, the sort of coming of age relationships, the relationships in which those older men help those young boys to discover who they are, and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable and sort of a rock where they can’t speak to their parents. “

        Is there anyone on the far right you won’t align yourself with? Do you have no moral compass or lack friends? Both?

      • Wiener comes to mind

  35. Bradford G. says:

    Milo has a great deal to contribute to political discourse. As someone who’s listened to hours and hours of his speeches and interviews as well as the full episode with statement in context, I’m standing beside him and providing unabashed support. Godspeed Milo, you’ll be back at the top of the world in no time!

  36. samseau says:

    “Yiannopoulos’s appearances triggered protests on college campus, including a demonstration that turned violent at University of California at Berkeley and forced the event’s cancellation. But the furor only seemed to add to the persona that Yiannopoulos was trying to create,”

    Yes it was Milo’s fault for causing people to become violent, dangerous, and destroy the campus. He obviously made the mistake of existing

  37. dooby says:

    Good job, Breitbart. You just pushed your #1 and most important contributor out the door for a manufactured scandal of doing something he didn’t. (Condone pedophilia.) I’m sure the Shapiro-type neocons who are still there and were demanding this will really help you stay on top as a news site, oh yeah.

      • Caligari says:

        I am 100% against pedos and people that support them like Milo Yiannopoulis.

        You must endorse this direct quote from Milo:

    Why is he being called a conservative? He is anti-leftist, but not a conservative.

    • sarif says:

      Exactly! Sadly, if you’re black and conservative, the Democrat liberals and NAALCP will try to crucify you and your family. Look at Herman Cain all the way back to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

    • MJ says:

      Indeed, he refers to himself not as a conservative but as a libertarian. Either way this is a complete BS hit job.

      • Caligari says:

        This is a lie and spin.

        Milo in his own words says he’s not a Libertarian:

        “Libertarians are children. Libertarians are people who have given up looking for an answer. This whole ‘everybody do what they want’ is code for ‘leave me to do what I want.’ It’s selfish and childish. It’s an admission that you have given up trying to work out what a good society would look like, how the world should be ordered and instead just retreated back into selfishness. That’s why they’re so obsessed with weed, Bitcoin, and hacking.”

  39. Caligari says:

    How much are you paid to defend pedophiles?

    Here’s his incontext quote:

    “Some of those relationships between younger boys and older men, the sort of coming of age relationships, the relationships in which those older men help those young boys to discover who they are, and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable and sort of a rock where they can’t speak to their parents.”

    When faked with the creepiest smoking gun ever, all you can wimpily and sadly cry is “Fake News! Fake News!”

    Nope. Milo said it. Now he has to own it.

    How many times are you going to keep posting the same stock response?

  41. Lorna Kemp says:

    Huh?

  42. Caligari says:

    Its sad really. Because Bill did FILL IN THE BLANK, people must lay off Milo who talks about the merits of man-boy sex and relationships.

    What has happened to the right, aligning themselves with degenerates? SAD.

  43. Caligari says:

    He’s been out of office for 20 years. I hear Woodrow Wilson was a racist creep, that makes it ok for Republicans to… support the words of a man saying man/boy sex is ok?

  44. Caligari says:

    You’re creepy and should have your computer and basement checked.

  45. Lorna Kemp says:

    Huh? What does that have to do with Milo’s own words about pedophilia, exactly?

  46. Caligari says:

    Bill is not in power and he never said:

    “No, no, no. You’re misunderstanding what pedophilia means… 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,”

    He goes on to say consent is “arbitrary and oppressive.”

    why are you defending this creep Milo?

  47. Anthony Sakal says:

    Poorly correlated to the Clinton’s? What you said was poorly correlated to the facts. Hillary Clinton married a pervert and stayed with him for political power and a lot of women suffered a double humiliation because of that. Overcoming sexual abuse by men with power is nowhere as bad as overcoming the additional trauma caused by women with power and especially one like Hillary.

  48. Edward H. says:

    You do know you’re still advocating Milo’s pedo viewpoints, right?

  49. Tony Bilotto says:

    Milo unfortunately resides on the side that has ramifications for words and actions- if we operated like Dems, he would have resigned to be immediately hired for a top WH position by Bannon. He stepped on the third rail- man/boy love- don’t worry, in ten years, left will legitimize it.

  50. Edward H. says:

    Is EVERYTHING that goes wrong for conservatives going to be poorly correlated to the Clintons?
