Yesterday, a video was leaked where Milo Yiannopoulos appears to condone pedophilia. In the video, Yiannopoulos seems to suggest that he sees sexual relations with children as young as 13 as a helpful thing. He goes on to laugh off the seriousness of pedophile Catholic priests.
As a result of these comments, the CPAC has rescinded Yiannopoulos’ invitation to speak at the conference. Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union which organizes the CPAC, released a statement on the video this morning. In the statement, Schlapp called on Yiannopoulos to “further address these disturbing comments.” Yiannopoulos apologized in a FaceBook post this morning. In his post, he claims that the videos “are edited deceptively” and “paint a different picture”. Schlapp also called Yiannopoulos’ explanation of the video “insufficient”.
Milo Yiannopoulos never appears far from controversy. Last year, Twitter banned Yiannopoulos for stirring harassment of Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones. Earlier this year, Yiannopoulos’ planned event at University of California-Berkeley was cancelled when protests turned violent.
Conservatives have long defended Yiannopoulos’ attention-seeking rhetoric, on the grounds it was free speech that liberals want censored. However, his endorsement of pedophilia seems to be more than they could take.
Other speakers at the CPAC this year include President Trump, VP Mike Pence, Reince Preibus, Steve Bannon and Ted Cruz.
