I wouldn’t pay Milo a good goddman but for one thing.
If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?

Trump knows him and likes him. Donald’s very much aware of who and what Milo is. For your own edification here’s some of Tablet Mag’s profile from June 2016:
The sad story of Milo Yiannopoulos: the Trump troll with Daddy issues
Milo Yiannopoulos is a fervent supporter of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Referring to Trump as “Daddy,” the ostentatiously gay British media personality provides a camp component to the presumptive Republican nominee’s fan base…
Simultaneously vacuous and sinister, equal parts nihilist and narcissist, Yiannopoulos is the model Trump advocate. And as Trump comes under increasing scrutiny, Yiannopoulos, who writes for Breitbart.com, has gone to great lengths defending the worst elements of his campaign… Among its various constituencies, the alt right is comprised of mens’ rights advocates, pseudo-intellectual “race realists,” technocratic authoritarians whose paeans to Chinese efficiency resemble those of Tom Friedman (if Tom Friedman thought Ian Smith was a sell-out), and outright neo-Nazis. Speaking of the movement’s “intellectuals,” the bulk of whom write for avowedly racist and anti-Semitic publications like VDARE and American Renaissance, Yiannopoulos and his co-author described them as “dangerously bright.”
Read the whole thing here. It’s an effective exposé.
If you’re looking for something more recent, try this:
The right-wing provocateur recalled his own sexual abuse as a teen and did not appear to outright condemn similar relationships between children and men on a 2016 episode of “The Drunken Peasants” podcast.
He flippantly said young boys “discover who they are” through such relationships, later implying that those relationships can be sexual in nature, and can “give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable rock where they can’t speak to their parents.”
A host with the popular podcast fired back at Yiannopoulos and said, “Sounds like Catholic priest molestation to me.”
Milo has some weird fetish about sex crime being something that happens only with little kids. Of child molestation, pederasty and pedophilia, he’s artfully chosen the last term to hide behind because it meets the definition only when you’re assaulting pre-pubescents.
“I’m grateful for Father Michael,” he said. “I wouldn’t give nearly such good [oral sex] if it wasn’t for him.” When pressed, he argued that his interviewers were blurring the meaning of “pedophilia,” misapplying it to consensual sex between post-pubescent men, even if one partner was below the age of consent.
“Pedophilia is not a sexual attraction to somebody 13 years old, who is sexually mature,” he said. “Pedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty. Pedophilia is attraction to people who don’t have functioning sex organs yet who have not gone through puberty.”
When I was 13 years old I was in seventh grade. I was not “a post-pubescent man”. I was an older boy with a body going through big changes. Sexual adulthood takes a while, you know? I don’t really think I need to point this out. Nor do I have to go on about the brain being critically involved in determining sexual maturity, as well as orientation. There are good reasons to consider 13 year-olds off limits for the purposes of horny adults. [I could certainly go on at some length about Donald Trump’s own fetish for assaulting young women and gawking at naked teens: “Don’t worry, ladies. I’ve seen it all before.” Another time, creep.]
But of course we’re talking about the execrable Trumpiste Milo, who is now trying to shoehorn into kewl-kids-behavior his vomit inducing opinions.
“I did say that there are relationships between younger men and older men that can help a young gay man escape from a lack of support or understanding at home. That’s perfectly true and every gay man knows it. But I was not talking about anything illegal and I was not referring to pre-pubescent boys.”
It is illegal in all 50 states, and in all the civilized world as far as I know, to have sex with 13 year-old boys. For very good reasons you twisted shit.
