Conservatives Are Finally Feeling Screwed by Milo

So what did it take to puncture conservative bravado about feting and fawning over Breitbart shock jock Milo Yiannopoulos? His constant race baiting? No. His Milo Yiannopoulosmisogyny? No. Apparently, his defense of pedophilia — pederasty, to be exact because, evidently, even this nihilist makes a distinction between sex with pre-pubescent and post-pubescent boys.

CPAC cancelled its invite to Milo to speak at its annual conference this week after tapes surfaced in which Milo claimed that “sex between 13-year-olds and older men can be ‘life affirming.’” Socrates might have agreed with him but this was too much for CPAC and Simon & Schuster that also cancelled his book deal. But Berkley College Republicans so far at least are still vowing to invite him back (along with right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones) to deliver his previous speech that got aborted when far-left radicals declared war on the campus.

The radicals were nihilists in their own right, but if Republicans have a right to invite Milo, others have a right to judge them.

And what these invitations say about Republicans is not that they are some brave anti-PC warriors scoring one for free speech, I note in my column at The Week – but that they are fools who are declaring their moral bankruptcy by allying themselves with the equivalent of the Joker from Batman.
