Trump's Free Speech Victim: Yiannopoulos

Remember Trump's indignation at the cancellation of Yiannopoulos' speech at Berkeley, his misdirected blame of them and inappropriate threat to cancel their federal aid?  berkeley-fallout.jpg

 

 

Well to top it all off, we have this news about Trump's heroic victim:

 

  • "Milo Yiannopoulos, a polemical Breitbart editor and unapologetic defender of the altright, tested the limits of how far his provocations could go after the publication of a video in which he condones sexual relations with boys as young as 13 and laughs off the seriousness of pedophilia by Roman Catholic priests.
  • On Monday, the organizers of the Conservative Political Action Conference rescinded their invitation for him to speak this week. Simon & Schuster said it was canceling publication of “Dangerous” after standing by him through weeks of criticism of the deal. And Breitbart itself was reportedly reconsidering his role amid calls online for it to sever ties with him.
  • Mr. Yiannopoulos’s comments, which quickly created an uproar online over the weekend, put many conservatives in a deeply uncomfortable position. They have long defended Mr. Yiannopoulos’s attentionseeking
    stunts and racially charged antics on the grounds that the left had tried to hypocritically censor his right to free speech."
