CPAC Bails on Milo Yiannopoulos for Pedophilia Comments, and Breitbart “News” May Fire Him

Panic in the Wingnut Universe
Wingnuts • Views: 38,232

Well, the other shoe dropped today. The guy in charge of right wing hatefest CPAC spent most of yesterday defending Milo Yiannopoulos:

But today Matt Schlapp is suddenly singing a very different tune.

And Yiannopoulos’ trouble doesn’t end there. According to Fox Business correspondent Charles Gasparino, Breitbart “News” may also sack the alt-right demagogue.

I’m having great fun imagining the hysterical shrieking from the right wing universe if Breitbart fires Yiannopoulos. But make no mistake, if they do it will be for PR reasons, not because they had a sudden attack of ethics.

I guess CPAC owes all of those other people who bailed on Milo an apology…

I was not expecting this reaction at all…I really though they were going to twist themselves into pretzels to defend a fellow that DT once stood up for when he got his UCB speaking engagement cancelled…

The thing is, and this is no surprise to anyone here, given that it was previously known that Milo was a terrible person, why would anyone want to invite him to come speak to them?

Oh… I forgot… it’s good to be “deplorable” these days.

re: #5 Dr. Matt

There was some discussion of having Milo come to Berkeley at a later date. I wonder if that will happen in view of his sudden fall from grace? Or if it will and no one will show up to hear him?

As a twitter feed pointed out on the previous thread, they are good with misogyny, islamophobia and racism, but if you start talking about buggering WHITE CHILDREN!!! they draw the line there.

I guess Milo’s sass couldn’t overcome the fact that he’s a hated Queer. You know… One of THEM… One of the un-rapintent soddy-mat kiddy-fiddlin’ untermenschen that most CPAC attendees want to put in death camps anyway.

So, we know who has the political balls at CPAC, and it’s the religious right. And hooray Milo for reinforcing another right-wing stereotype about gay men… Is there any ass he can’t hole?

re: #39 Eclectic Cyborg

But I’m not.

He’s going to be “rehabilitated.” He’ll use his book to say see he’s been in therapy to get over the abuse he’s suffered. Next he’ll go on TV and talk about it. Before you know it he’ll be back to his usual hate.

43
BlueGrl21  Feb 20, 2017 • 12:13:13pm

Yep, I expected this would be the end of Milo. Again, because this is personal to too many people. Childhood sexual abuse knows no party or creed and I do have some faith left in humanity.

This is awkward Conservative outreach to the younger generation at its finest. Milo is a darling of the younger set. Bring in Milo, bring in the kids. They have yet to learn these kids are Children of the Corn.

He’s going to realize eventually he was being used by them. He thinks he was being the clever one but he was used not the other way around.

He’ll go even more obnoxious to try and stay relevant. I expect to see full on Nazi/Holocaust denial/anti-Semite.

Anything for him to find acceptance in a group, any group who’ll have him.

Because he knows he’s going to be yesterday’s news by the end of the year if not sooner. He really thought he had a brilliant niche- the gay conservative who hates the same things as does the religious right.

I expect him yeah to go even further right or once he realizes no one on the right will want anything to do with him try to con the left into saying he’s “reformed”.

It’s gonna be interesting watching him try to spin this as a win. He’s a clever boy, and his contrarian psychosis runs pretty deep. Will he pretend to be a metro William F. Buckley, or just call CPAC a bunch of cucks? The cosmos awaits the answer with bated breath.

You’re unfortunately 100% right. That is definitely the lesson most of them will take from it and they’ll use it to justify their homophobia even more rather than the fact that this guy in specific is a fucked up douche who just happens ot be gay.
