A twitterstorm erupted last night when an old interview with hate speech-spouting neocon poster boy Milo Yiannopoulos resurfaced, in which he defended older men who have sex with 13-year-old boys.
In the homosexual world particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men the sort of coming of age relationships relationships in which those older men have helped those young boys to discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable — and sort of a rock where they can’t speak to their parents…
…The law is probably about right, that’s probably roughly the right age, I think it’s probably about okay, but there are certainly people who are capable of giving consent at a younger age. I certainly consider myself to be one of them.
…You’re misunderstanding what pedophilia means. Pedophilia is not a sexual attraction to somebody 13 years old, who is sexually mature. Pedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty. Pedophilia is attraction to people who don’t have functioning sex organs yet who have not gone through puberty.
Yiannopoulos claimed the reason he is so great at giving oral sex is thanks to his priest:
“And do you know what? I’m grateful for Father Michael. I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him.”
All of which, you would think, would make conservatives freak the fuck out and denounce their pet homosexual. But nooooooo.
Strangely enough (or not strangely at all– we ARE living in the Upside Down), they are coming out of the woodwork to SUPPORT him.
In the Daily Mail comment section, predictable cries of “FAKE NEWS” and “Lamestream media getting it wrong” abound. As do conspiracy theories about “deceptive editing” (always a favorite) and “evil libtards” just trying to bring him down like they’re doing with Trump. The biggest argument FOR him, though, seems to be the “Free Speech” thing, which the right can’t seem to distinguish from “hate speech” –
It’s absolutely astounding the way they can pretzel their beliefs to fit whatever narrative they want.
Meanwhile, Milo is spinning, spinning. On his Facebook page
For the record, here is the complete video of what he said.
