I enjoy him as a performer. Doesn't mean I would like him as a friend.

I didn't know that professional assholes are into branding. That's what it looks like when they do - obviously.

Pretend you didn't.

All of these fellows are professional provocatuers, they make their living by being provocative. As such, I don't give them much credibility given that they are attempting to manipulate me.

Branding arseholes... why does this sound so appealing, I wonder Consider

Emma, that's kinda why I posted it... best way to cleanse your brain from something... is to dump it on some else's Blush

Girly, the word is cuntroversial. As in:

"Cuntroversial: Adj
To use bigoted opinions to gain infamy and money
E.g: Piers Morgan and Katie Hopkins views are cuntroversial." Yes


("Milo Yiannopoulos has book deal cancelled, which he heralds as huge success for "alt-write".)

I like that better. Sounds better to the ear. Something earmuffs would come up with.

Never really followed what the things he was saying was til I saw that girly posted quote.

So he's not talking about ancient Athens? Cause it kinda sounds like that Olde Trope slant

"In the homosexual world, particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men — the sort of ‘coming of age’ relationship — those relationships in which those older men help those young boys discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable, sort of rock, where they can’t speak to their parents." - Milovelyboy Yappenpous.

Stupid dick. Stupid. You were on a roll.

Still bugging me- it's so very transparent that CPAC actually doesn't care about free speech. Conservatives DON'T care about free speech. They care about speech with which they agree. Just like everyone else. They aren't calling for government intervention any more than I am. But when he said something that cross their lines- suddenly they don't want to give him a platform either.

Why is it okay for Milo to attack jewish people, black people, gay people, trans people, feminists, women, immigrants, etc... But it's not okay for him to defend pedophilia? Why is that suddenly crossing a line? Because all of those other things are okay with the conservative platform- if not outwardly encouraged, then tolerated or touted on the sly. It was NEVER about free speech. Never.

Don't think that any of the minorities he attacked didn't notice that, either. We noticed that it was okay when it was us in his sites, but that wasn't enough for people to take a stand against him.

For fucks sake. If it's okay for him to attack me or my family, or my friends, based on lies he uses for justification, then it should be just as okay for him to defend pedos. Why is one okay, but not the other, if we're defending free speech?

This is a question that everyone should ask themselves- including CPAC.

Did Simon & Schuster drop him because they morally disagreed with him, or because his audience suddenly dried up? They could have banked on selling books to conservatives and outrage buyers, but now, would they make enough to make it worth it? Or did they take a moral stand? Or did he just become too hot a potato to hold?

Same with Breitbart.

Also, by these things he's said- even though it was a year ago he said it- he's basically, in the eyes of the Right, validating the argument homophobes have been using for years... that gay people are all pedos and you need to keep your kids away from them. Which is obviously not true. But in the eyes of the Right, it's validation enough. And, that argument is used against all of the LGBTQ rainbow.

Idk... I still have thoughts on this mess.

RE: Illiberal Left Shuts Down Free Speech with Violence (Again)
I also have thoughts on this idea of humor as discussed by Bill Maher and Milo in that interview clip posted earlier.

They both agree that nothing in humor should be off-limits. Everyone is fair game in humor. Everything is okay as long as it has a purpose.

This was such a softball to Milo, it gave him such an out that he didn't have to answer to his hurtful actions.

So maybe that's a better question- and maybe it's worth its own thread if people care enough to post about it. But is everything allowed in humor? And what does that really mean? And does context matter? If it does matter- what does it mean to matter?

Are people allowed to get upset at a joke made at their expense? Does the intent of the joke play a part? Does the victim of a joke at someone's expense matter?

I do feel strongly that the government should not put boundaries on humor. Satirists, story-tellers, comedians, etc. all need to be free to criticize the government and society at large. But can society push back? Do people have a right to get upset when careless jokes play a role in their marginalization?

Personally, I think that people owe it to their fellow humans to try to recognize WHY a joke is funny. When someone else says that a joke hurts them or contributes to their victimization, we have a duty to them to analyze it through their eyes and hear their argument before dismissing them. Does that mean that sometimes it goes too far? Sure it does. We all know that there is a such thing as political correctness run-a-muck. But if our humor is never to be uncomfortably pushed to evolve, we will always hurt the people in need of help the most.

So, humor is a rightly well-guarded facet of a free society, but that free society does have a right and obligation to evolve to uplift rather than tamp down.

So- what do you all think? What are your thoughts on this subject?

Most of them are latent pedos and Milo would've drawn too much attention and lead to the discovery of their own sordid affairs.
