BREAKING: Milo Yiannopoulos Disinvited from CPAC

Update (3:30 PST): Simon & Schuster just announced it was cancelling Yiannopoulos' upcoming book Dangerous. In addition, Breitbart is considering dismissing him as Technology Editor.

A few minutes ago, Matt Schlapp, Chairman of the American Conservative Union, announced on Twitter that the recent invitation to Milo Yiannopoulos to speak at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) had been withdrawn. Schlapp explained that this was due to Yiannopoulos appearing to endorse pederasty in a podcast interview about a year ago. Yiannopoulos had recently issued a "clarification" of the interview on his Facebook page, but Schlapp dubbed this "insufficient."

A few hours earlier, CPAC had announced that President Donald Trump would be speaking at the conference.

WARNING: GRAPHIC. Here is the long original version of the podcast (some of he relevant remarks begin at about 1:01:30). Yiannopoulos' "clarification" is here.


  1. Doesn't any sane man know a haughty sodomite has such ideas so why is the alt-right or conservative movement surprised a sodomite is subversive given that sodomites are, by nature, subversive?

  2. I'm neutral concerning Milo. He's certainly flamboyant. But, his defense of Free-Speech is commendable. His rise among younger people certainly made him enemies with many in the GOPe. Getting a speaking engagement at CPAC was too much for most Professional Republicans. National Review couldn't stand him. Lest we forget, National Review featured a writer for 20 years who was a lesbian and who spent most of her early career writing hard-core porn. Florence King was an outstanding writer and a keen observer of human nature. But, she never hid her lesbianism nor her career as a writer of hard core porn novellas. Perhaps it was the fact that for William Buckley, none of that mattered. King could write well and meet deadlines. Perhaps it was because she was elderly that many figured she was harmless.

    Milo, on the other hand, is anything but, harmless. He had to be dealt with. The GOPe, it turns out, does have a lot of fight. Too bad, it is reserved for its own kind.
