CPAC invited controversial gay Republican Milo Yiannopoulos (whose invite to Berkeley caused all of that violence and destruction not too long ago) to be a speaker, and in fact the keynote speaker, and then disinvited him.
The American Conservative Union is the organization behind the Conservative Political Action Conference, but the board was never asked if Milo could speak, and ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp caught a lot of flack when he announced Milo Yiannopoulos would be speaking at the 2017 CPAC.
Then, the videos surfaced, during which Yiannopoulos argues for the legalization of sexual relationships between teenage boys and adult men, as well as making anti-Semitic comments about Jews in the media.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper slammed the Conservative Political Action Conference's decision to invite Milo, tweeting the invite was wrong after a video surfaced that Milo defends pedophilia.
Tapper said he initially wanted to avoid discussing the revelation, but was urged to speak out by an unnamed friend, who Tapper said is a victim of sexual abuse. It turns out that Milo is, too.
Show me a gay man who was not sexually abused, and I will show you a rare bird.
Since the rise of all of the controversy, Townhall's Guy Benson says that Milo Yiannopoulos has been disinvited from speaking at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in DC, a report that was quickly confirmed by the ACU Chair.
“Due to the revelation of an offensive video in the past 24 hours condoning pedophilia, the American Conservative Union has decided to rescind the invitation of Milo Yiannopoulos to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference,” ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp said in a statement earlier today (Monday).
