UPDATE: Milo Yiannopoulos – Sexual Attraction To Somebody 13 Years Old Is Not Pedophilia
Update: Since these reports on his past comments have surfaced and begun to gain traction, Simon and Schuster cancelled his new book Dangerous from coming out. In a statement released today, the huge publisher said, “After careful consideration, Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint have canceled publication of Dangerous by Milo Yiannopoulos.” WARNING VIDEO NSFW
Conservative gay blogger and avid Donald Trump supporter Milo Yiannopoulos is coming under fire recently for some old interviews that have surfaced where he seems to be excusing and defending pedophilia.
In an interview clip The Reagan Battalion posted to their Twitter account, Yiannopoulous says some rather shocking things.
“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,” he states.
“But you know what? I’m grateful for Father Michael,” he continues, talking about an older man he allegedly had a sexual relationship with when he was underage. “I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him.”
“Pedophilia is not a sexual attraction to somebody 13 years old who is sexually mature,” he shockingly added. “Pedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty. Pedophilia is attraction to people who don’t have functioning sex organs yet to have not gone through puberty who are too young to be able to understand the way their body…”
Yiannopoulos has taken to his Facebook to respond to the interviews that have surfaced, writing, “There’s a video going around that purports to show me saying anti-semitic things (nope) and advocating for pedophilia (big nope). The shocking thing? It’s Republicans doing it. Sad to see establishment types collapse into the same tactics as social justice warriors: name calling, deceptively edited videos, confected moral outrage and public shaming. This is why they deserve to burn — and why they are burning. Here’s how I actually feel about pedophilia, which you’d know if you’d actually watched or read anything I’ve ever done. Or, you know, if you had two brain cells to rub together. There’s only one appropriate response to this sort of behavior, and it’s a gigantic F**K YOU!”
He then linked to a blog post he wrote entitled “Here’s Why the Progressive Left Keeps Sticking Up for Pedophiles.”
Call us crazy, but no matter what spin he tries to put on it, he definitely sounds like he’s defending pedophilia/reworking the definition of it due to an experience he went through. There’s only one word for all of this – sick.
