Last week we warned that operatives working for the Deep State, and that includes Democrats AND Republicans, will be targeting President Donald Trump’s Lieutenants, as efforts to delegitimize his Presidency have thus far failed spectacularly. Those lietenants that are under attack also include alternative media personalities and outspoken critics of the policies of the left.
If you have been paying attention for the last 24 hours, mainstream media organizations have been on the attack against Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos. According to Huffington Post and others, a recording of Milo released over the weekend suggests he supports pedophilia:
“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.”
While it’s easy to suggest that’s what Milo is saying here, the fact is that older homosexual men often refer to younger, of-legal-age significant others as “boys,” while the younger male may refer to his older boyfriend as “daddy.” It’s common lingo in the gay community.
Apparently, however, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) didn’t take the comments this way and have reacted just as the left’s attack machine had hoped.
Milo has now been dis-invited from this year’s CPAC conference and we’re sure more fallout is to come.
Yiannopoulos, noting that his comments have been misunderstood, posted on Facebook that he has been a victim of child abuse and is on record repeatedly against pedophilia and sexual abuse of children.
Here’s his full Facebook response:
I am a gay man, and a child abuse victim.
I would like to restate my utter disgust at adults who sexually abuse minors. I am horrified by pedophilia and I have devoted large portions of my career as a journalist to exposing child abusers. I’ve outed three of them, in fact — three more than most of my critics. And I’ve repeatedly expressed disgust at pedophilia in my feature and opinion writing. My professional record is very clear.
But I do understand that these videos, even though some of them are edited deceptively, paint a different picture.
I’m partly to blame. My own experiences as a victim led me to believe I could say anything I wanted to on this subject, no matter how outrageous. But I understand that my usual blend of British sarcasm, provocation and gallows humor might have come across as flippancy, a lack of care for other victims or, worse, “advocacy.” I deeply regret that. People deal with things from their past in different ways.
As to some of the specific claims being made, sometimes things tumble out of your mouth on these long, late-night live-streams, when everyone is spit-balling, that are incompletely expressed or not what you intended. Nonetheless, I’ve reviewed the tapes that appeared last night in their proper full context and I don’t believe they say what is being reported.
I do not advocate for illegal behavior. I explicitly say on the tapes that I think the current age of consent is “about right.”
I do not believe sex with 13-year-olds is okay. When I mentioned the number 13, I was talking about the age I lost my own virginity.
I shouldn’t have used the word “boy” — which gay men often do to describe young men of consenting age — instead of “young man.” That was an error.
I am certainly guilty of imprecise language, which I regret.
Anyone who suggests I turn a blind eye to illegal activity or to the abuse of minors is unequivocally wrong. I am implacably opposed to the normalization of pedophilia and I will continue to report and speak accordingly.
Whether you agree with Milo’s lifestyle or not, it is clear that this is nothing short of an attack based on deceptive editing and story telling.
That CPAC and other conservatives have yet again fallen for these tricks is a travesty.
To those who have so quickly turned on one of the most outspoken advocates for liberty, free speech and American values, we suggest you watch your back, because if it was this easy to take down Milo, guess who they are coming for next…
