Within hours of CPAC inviting Milo Yiannopoulos to give the keynote address next weekend, a coordinated effort to paint him as endorsing pedophilia erupted on the scene.
Not surprisingly, CPAC rescinded its invitation.
Because when the going gets tough, CPAC retreats.
Of course CPAC today just confirmed that President Trump will also be speaking. No word yet on whether they’ll disinvite him over the eleven-year-old Access Hollywood tape. But we’ll see.
When the smear campaign first got underway, Milo flatly disputed the allegations in a statement he released on Facebook:
And today, after he was disinvited from CPAC, Milo again posted a statement on Facebook.
I do not dispute that Milo – as is his wont – spoke recklessly in the podcast in question.
But he himself admits as much in both of his statements.
And I did find the remarks off-putting to say the least.
But as I mentioned yesterday, I have watched all but maybe one or two of Milo’s “Dangerous Faggot” events. And nowhere in those talks does he ever promote or seek to normalize such horrific and criminal behavior as pedophilia.
In fact, it’s actually quite the opposite.
In a number of his speeches, Milo discussed the horrifying pedophilia ring in Rotherham where as many as 1400 children were sexually abused over more than sixteen years.
It doesn’t surprise me that CPAC disinvited Milo over this malicious effort to paint him as being the very kind of predator he condemns.
But I think it’s a shame.
The Left is failing in its attempt to destroy Milo. And just when they thought they might fail completely, they get a helpful assist from conservatives.
I do not presume to know Milo Yiannopoulos’ heart. But I judge him on the whole of his actions and words. And nothing I have read or heard from him leads me to believe that he is in any way an advocate or supporter of the vile practice of pedophilia.
As I have said in the past, Milo’s sexual orientation is not in phase with my beliefs as a Christian. And I do pray for him, as I would anyone who struggles with sin.
His sexuality is not why I love the guy.
What I admire and respect about Milo is his willingness to enter the very belly of the beast and fight back against the hateful indoctrination of campus Leftists. He is the one who is fearlessly calling out their lies, their hypocrisy and their fascistic behavior.
What he doesn’t do is scamper away in terror when confronted by controversy.
It’s too bad I can’t say the same for CPAC.
Milo will be holding a press conference Tuesday at 3:30 pm to discuss this.
