Milo Officially "Uninvited" as Speaker at CPAC

CPAC is now in the strange position of having invited someone precisely because he was not permitted to speak on college campuses due to his controversial statements, and yet now having banned him from speaking there due to his controversial statements.

As you probably know, Establishment conservatives hoping to tank him began circulating a tape of an appearance on the Joe Rogan show early last year, in which he talked about having given oral sex to an older priest when he was 14, and making jokes (as he does) about that having improved his skills in that area. Then an appearance on another show was dug up, where he talked about younger "boys" (he says he meant "young men") have sex with older men a fair amount in gay circles.

It should be noted that as far as his "pro-pedophilia" remarks, he was actually the young person being preyed upon (though he denies he was preyed upon, calling himself, perhaps just sardonically, the "sexual predator" in the encounter), and not the person (the older man) who is actually charged with the moral and legal duty to not have sex with a 14 year old.

Nonetheless, some say that he's spouting "NAMBLA talking points" and people whose opinions I respect, like Niedermeyer's Dead Horse, takes a look at this in a fairly objective way and seems to try to give Milo every break she can, but seems to find there's just too many strikes here, and the batter is fairly called out.

I think that's a reasonable take -- though, in saying so, I don't think it's complete.

I would say an important additional dimension here is that if they can do it to him, they can do it to you too.

And they seem to be really doing it:


I saw an unconfirmed claim -- and I stress, unconfirmed -- that even Breitbart is considering severing times.

I doubt that, but who knows. The way this works is that the Outrage Mob gins up its hatred quickly, giving no one a chance to actually think slowly and carefully about these things -- and they should be thought slowly and carefully about, because what's being engineered here is possibly an irrevocable negative hit on someone -- and then people feel pressure to react instantly precisely the way the mob wants because God Forbid we stand up to the mob and say, "Stop your baying, and give adult men and women of rational mind and good spirit a chance to actually think," then maybe they'll turn on us next.

Proud anger travels twice around the world before cool reflection has even slipped on its first sock.

FWIW, Milo offers a written statement in defense of himself here, and, it seems, a more chastened, more frightened video response here, perhaps as he realized how serious the mob was about collecting this week's scalp from his head.

I'm not a fan of Milo's and have rarely cited him. I won't get into the "why" of that here, for similar reasons that I didn't get into why I wasn't a fan of Pam Gellar's after the shooting at her Draw Mohammad event, when the Social Justice Warriors of the left and the right saw fit to mob up on her hours after she'd been shot upon by a jihadi.

Yeah I've got a few problems with him -- but let's leave that for another day. I haven't seen it necessary to have one opinion or another about Milo so far, so I don't know if I have to suddenly burst forth with a lot of Strongly Held Opinions I Just Formed Six Minutes Ago today.

Another day when, you know, he's not in the eye of the Social Media Scalp-Hunting Hurricane.

I just think that when the whole world sets its sights on one lonely target, it's not really terribly useful or moral of me to join in the collective attack.

I don't think the world will end if a couple of voices here or there caution, "Maybe we shouldn't rush to extirpate him from the face of the earth with just these three seconds of contemplation."

I have no bias in favor of Milo, and that indeed my bias tends to run the other way. (To the extent I have any bias -- I'm not really a follower or fan. I can't render much of an opinion on Milo because, in all honesty, I am not familiar with his writing, except through the occasional quotation provided by his enemies.)

But I do think Milo has done some good work in exposing the increasing intolerance and hateful mob mentality of our twitterfied, outrage-addicted society.

Whether that outweighs the sins he is said to have committed, I don't know.

I suspect most people don't. I suspect his fans know a fair amount about him, and his detractors and scalp-hunters know a bit less, and I think pretty much everyone else is like "Is Milo that lemonheaded gay guy who's on YouTube a lot?"

But I just have the same sick feeling:

And here we go again.

For what it's worth, several people whose opinions I respect include those at, get this, this very blog, are taking Milo to task for his statements, and I can't disagree with them in any kind of authoritative way.

I could dispute them, that is, I could put up a "Well what about this?" sort of semi-defense, but I wouldn't have terribly much emotional or intellectual chips invested in the defense itself. It would not be a "I'm definitely right, you're definitely wrong" kind of thing.

And to be honest, I have myself mixed opinions about the precious few of Milo's statements I've heard. There's some stuff I've seen (out of context) about the Jews I had quite a negative reaction to, but then, I don't know the context.

All that said, I do have an interest, and that interest is less about Milo than this same sick game of Pick the Day's Hate Object and Destroy It.

Is it my scalp they'll be coming for next week?

Who knows -- maybe this very post you're reading right now will be cited as the reason Ace Must Now Be Purged to Maintain the Purity of the Body of the Church of Twitter.

As I think The Joker said, there's an element of fairness in pure random cruelty. If it's kind of random thing, the way we all take our place at the Wheel of Punishment and hope our name doesn't come up, maybe it is fair.

So long as we all understand and agree in advance that our names are up there too.

One can dispute his claims and criticize the callowness and the occasional meanness and casual offensiveness of his statements without taking the next step of deciding that we're going to mob up together to destroy his life just because we're kinda bored and not doin' much else on a slow news day.

Or can we?

I don't know that we can any longer.

This is where we are; this is what we are. Perhaps this is what we've always been -- perhaps we just needed a technological innovation of social media to enable us to focus and purify our hatred into a polarized speck of white-hot dissolving heat.

Maybe we just needed this one stupid little tool so that we could take this week's pleasure in inflicting cruelty on strangers, like a sadistic kid just needs a magnifying glass to focus the sun's rays on a random ant.

#HasJustineLandedYet?

Note: As I said above, I am calling for time to consider this. I'm not a Milologist and I don't know the context of all his statements or the full Oppo Dump on the statements claimed to be racist, anti-semitic, or now, pro-pedophilia.

Maybe the people calling for his scalp know these things with much higher accuracy than I do, and do have enough of a case against him to make this call.

Maybe -- but all I've seen are these disjointed twitter links and thin, took-me-five-minutes-to-write-this news briefs which are themselves just compilations of the disjointed twitter links.

I do not see the sort of written out, thought out indictment in essay form, with all counter-arguments considered and answered and all evidence amassed, that would make me feel comfortable about saying "Let's smear this queer."

If someone writes that, and it makes the case, sure, I'll say the case is made and the punishment should be executed. (Maybe -- gotta tell you, I'm a Consistent Advocate of Free Expression and I'm not tribal on the point as many are. By which I mean: I'm not a fan of the rightwing Social Justice Mafia's scalp-hunting any more than I am the leftwing. In fact, I think I like the former less, as I find the former disappointing and illusions-shattering.)

But I haven't seen it yet. If someone wants to write it, I'd personally like to read it. I don't really read the guy and don't know much about him except he's controversial and has offered spurious (to my mind) defenses of the alt-right.

But even though I found those defenses spurious and calculatedly naive, I can't say I'm outraged by someone attempting to make the case that we should be more free to speak, not less.

My strongly-held opinion on that point is that we are too limited in what we are free to say without be scalped, boycotted, or fired, not too damn "free" and in need of further abridgments to make sure other people's Spaces are Safe.

Even if the defense of freedom of expression in question is frequently disingenuous, I still gotta say... I'm not terribly bothered by a disingenuous effort to push back against the Speech Police.

Other than that one article -- which I didn't finish; had enough of it after a few paragraphs -- I really do not know what all the fuss is about this guy, on either the pro- or con- side.

I'm ignorant. I guess that makes me a good candidate for a jury.

So what is the case? I need to actually hear the case before rendering any kind of verdict.

If I head must roll, fine, but let's kind of have all the facts out in the open and debated first, huh? I don't want to see yet another scalping based on little more than "We don't like this guy on Twitter so now he gets his."

Explain it to me like I'm a child, who knows nothing, and not someone who is on Twitter and the listservs all day who knows all the crimes this turbulent internet celebrity is guilty of.

That's the main point right there. I kept cautioning people on twitter to rein it in on him but they were blistering on.

They are about the fast hit job and then later retractions like Emily Litella, but never as immediate or public.

13 One takeaway is that anyone advocating against the ctrl-left must at all times and in all ways be totally, completely, utterly above criticism.

Or the hammer will come down.

The kicker is that the standard for behavior for opponents of the ctrl-left is inhumanly rigorous (not to mention continually changing).

Only Trump has (so far) been able to successfully oppose them for any period of time.

And they're gunning (metaphorically) for him as hard as they can, as we all well know.

Why? Make him defend his position in public. Isn't that what we always say here?

FTR, I think he let his mouth and his ego run wild because of all his recent success. It was a huge mistake, and if he's proven to have actually molested someone, we should shun him / lock him up. That's not yet the case, and regardless, I want to hear him defend himself.

Anyone who has any gay friends has known about this sort of thing for a very long time. This isn't any big secret. But, in the public discourse of homosexuality - specifically male, because no one really gives a shit about female homosexuality - it never sees the light of day the same way that the fact that male homosexuality revolves around anal sex is never broached (and why the topic of anal sex was even totally off limits for any part of an AIDs discussion for the first, say 10 or 15 years of the disease).

But ... all this sort of stuff has to be ignored so that people can lie and pretend that homosexuality is exactly like heterosexuality, except that it's spelled differently. LOL.

31 >>>nd if he's proven to have actually molested someone

you have the story wrong. When he was 14 -- when HE was 14 -- a priest induced him to give him a blowjob.

Milo's crime here is that he said it was a "positive" experience for him, and didn't damage him, which is taken to be an endorsement of men having sex with teenagers.

Milo was the "victim" in this encounter, not the perp, even though he himself (until recently) said he wasn't any victim.

But that's his right, it seems to me. If the victim of a sex crime says "I came through it okay" or "It made me stronger," I don't see how I have the right to insist that person give me a story about the emotional wreckage the encounter caused, simply because that makes for a more compelling Narrative about the dangers of sex crimes.

32 Milo is part Jewish, and is an ardent Zionists (which is rare in the UK, trust me on this) so whatever Milo's said against "the Jews" is probably either unserious or else a critic of their liberal faction. The last of which many Jews will do in these comments every day.

33 I don't really give a crap about CPAC or whether he's there or not, its never been a major force and the last few years clearly has virtually nothing to do with actual conservatism. I think its mostly just a place for people to go and party at like a trade convention.

But the publisher thing hurts, that's another story entirely. It's not surprising that Simon & Schuster dumped him, they were probably desperate to after the riots. That just hurts, and its going to be rough going for a bit for the guy. He gets hate all day long and twice on Sundays, so while he seems to thrive on it like Breitbart did, there are limits.

43 I said it on Twitter but I'll say it here :
I see Milo primarily as a comedian. Which is fine, but he pushed the line and it pushed back this time.

His defense of gallows humor fails, in part because part of that is they the humor happens in the gallows, among other people in there with you. When you try to take it out, except in a few rare circumstances (where the darkness is general enough to be broadly understood) it fails with great backlash.
Part of what I constantly have to do in defending animal research is defend the gallows humor that is exposed to the public (through shitty Peta shit. ) it'd be harder to defend it if it weren't illicitly revealed.

That being said, cpac's motives here dealt with ticket sales, let's not kid ourself. And when that started to go south, they made another choice based on that.

i don't read much gay stuff at all, but I've seen enough confessionals in which gay men say this is how they "came of age," as it were.

I don't know much about this subculture but this isn't a terribly uncommon story.

as far as push-back, sure, push-back -- it is in fact pedophilia (or pederasty).

But remember, Milo is actually the underage person preyed upon in this story. His crime is just saying "It didn't bother me much" and making a flippant joke that it improved his blowjob skills.

61 I've enjoyed watching Milo taking on the campuses. The schadenfreude has been great in that sense of "someone's finally pushing back." To silence him is to prove that only liberals/the elites approved by the elites (aka MSM and the colleges)/ are allowed to speak.

Way back when I was in college, I went to a talk by Horowitz. He was literally shouted down and left before the audience got to hear anything from him. It was a packed room and two people ruined the whole thing by making it impossible for Horowitz to speak. He slunk off in defeat. Watching Milo talk gives a sense of satisfaction that maybe, just maybe "conservative" speakers can't be run off like wounded animals.

I'm disheartened to think that the usual tactics are succeeding again, when this election had my hopes up. Shame on me for actually having hope.

I used to interact (online) with Throbert McGee (ex-LGFer) and the guy at Classical Values. They would say that there's a lot of this in gay porn, but that the poop chute is not their thing and not as big a thing as it's made out to be.

The anal sex focus is more the drug subculture, and people who are just plain mentally ill like Andrew Sullivan.

Milo only has one real message that I care about, free speech. The left and many on the right it seems, are absolutely determined to shut him up because he says things that go against many narratives and he does it fearlessly.

His been flying awfully close to the sun lately and made him self a target waiting for a slip. I hope this turns out to be nothing because he's a valuable force on college campuses and beyond.

But my first exposure to Milo was when he appeared with and accompanied Dr. Franklin Graham on Dr. Graham's prayer march across the nation. I saw Milo in a prayer circle with a small group of Southern Baptist ladies, clasping his hands and saying "We're praying for you Milo". I think afterwards he remarked on how they genuinely seemed to love him. I hope he remembers them now.

no not really. Milo's grandmother is jewish which makes him TECHNICALLY jewish, if he chose to be jewish, but he hasn't. He was raised catholic and has never identified as jewish.

I don't know the context of the remarks. I've mentioned before that for a while, I was doing this dumb joke where I would angrily push my soup away and darkly declare, "This soup is worse than the Holocaust."

Is that minimizing the Holocaust? Um, sure, until you figure out the whole point of the joke is that I'm being silly by comparing a very minor trifle (disappointing soup) to the Holocaust.

Is that the sort of thing he was doing? I don't know. Maybe he was just being flat-out anti-semitic.

Not having the quotes -- not being a Milologist -- I just don't know.

no, there's a bit more. In the same interview, he is dishing on Hollywood parties, and says to Rogan that there were very, very young boys there being given drugs and taken advantage of, but won't reveal whose parties there were.

This is taken as protecting pedophiles, which it is, but in fairness, narcing on someone is sometimes a tough call. It wouldnt' be for me, but... whatever, I guess his point is that this is common at Hollywood gay parties. or something.

The other thing is that there's another interview where he's talking about the age of consent. I think he says the current age of consent "seems about right," but I guess he expressed some notion that maybe it could be lower.

I honestly don't know about that last one; Milo says it's unfairly edited, to conflate his statments about affirmative consent being a joke (in the case of campus sex police policies) with the other discussion about the age of consent.

Honestly, I don't know, and maybe the people calling for his scalp know these things with much higher accuracy than me, but all I see are these disjointed twitter links.

I do not see the sort of written out, thought out indictment in essay form, with all counter-arguments cosnidered and answered and all evidence amassed, that would make me feel comfortable about saying "Let's smear the queer."

insist that person give me a story about the emotional wreckage the
encounter caused, simply because that makes for a more compelling
Narrative about the dangers of sex crimes.





Posted by: ace at February 20, 2017 05:57 PM (8rNrN)
=============================

The danger is in validating the experience, and making it normal. If it is valid and normal, and causes no real harm to the aggressor or the victim, then where's the problem? And it leaves other victims to question why they DO NOT feel normal or valid, in fact they feel devastated and broken. I don't like a message that says "I'm OK, you're OK" when it comes to childhood sexual abuse. Don't make the child even more afraid to say something.

Milo pushed the line, but as the initial victim of abuse, at least in my worldview, that's allowed.

If a female comedian and rape victim wants to make light of the experience as a way of processing her experience, I don't tell her to shut up. I change the channel if it offends me. I don't boycott her book publisher or start a riot on campus.

He's pro-capitalist, anti-feminism, pro-America, anti-abortion, anti-PC. He's even anti-gay marriage.

His big issue is free speech.

That's not" refusing one or two tenets of their orthodoxy." Obviously you can't call a flamer who talks about black dick a "socon." But that was precisely his appeal to college kids. We have our serious sober voices. The Right desperately needed their own Lenny Bruce type to make a pitch to the millennials.

He made as many enemies on the GOPe side as on the Left, however. The left is piling on now, but this hit came from CPAC (and I'm surprised they invited him to speak in the first place - it's not the right forum for him.) National Review is just as happy at his downfall as Leslie Jones is.

Apparently the could be lower part is that he feels that maybe there are some younger than the age that would be mature enough to consent, and that he thinks he was one of them. Which really isn't some shock that people feel they are a bit more mature and ready for things at an age lower than the legal limit.

I don't know. He spoke of it all flippantly, archly, and with campy humor, but he speaks of ALL THINGS this way.

Some friends and I were talking, and somehow one of them brought up sex with a daughter (note: one of us have daughters), and one guy said, "Well, you're paying her bills, aren't you?"

Look, I don't know. This is called "Dark Humor." A lot of people think it's funny. A lot of people say "that's something that should NEVER be joked about."

There's no way to say one side is right and one side is wrong, but I'm on the side of the first group. I laughed when my friend said "Well you're paying her bills, aren't you? Fair is fair!"

The only speech that needs to be protected is unpopular speech. We live in a country where people's pronouns are more important than their deeds. If that kind of speech is now going to be made mandatory, how can you be against the most passionate enemy of SJWs?!

124 In the same interview, he is dishing on Hollywood parties, and says to Rogan that there were very, very young boys there being given drugs and taken advantage of, but won't reveal whose parties there were.

Seems to me that Milo could do some good by blogging about this further. Would he estimate that their ages were 20? 18? can he offer a standard deviation or thoughts on college or highschool? Can he pass judgement on any of that?

Some good may come of this after all, if a pedo nest is overturned in Hollywood.

126 I definitely don't think Milo said anything bad enough to have his book deal canceled--and I certainly hope he won't. But, at the same time, I do think he said something close enough for CPAC, in their discretion to cancel his visit--when, as I have read he was only ever unilaterally invited by Schlapp--probably on the basis of the popularity he was enjoying.

But there is a lot of bad thinking that goes on. The left is a hypocrite--no matter what the conservative reaction to Milo is. Their rejection wasn't on his borderline acceptance of cross-generational sex, as it was of his "white supremacy". And they said he was "homo-phobic" when skating so close to the line on ("oppressive") consent, he's not the least "homophobic". The way the left treated Milo is one thing. The way the right popularized Milo for a season, and perhaps censured him (or not--that's still up in the air) has nothing to do with the left lying about Yiannopoulos' views so as to practice exclusion while unqualified-ly squawking about "inclusion".

The left has been about solidarity of a hodge-podge group of causes--to which fidelity is the only qualification for inclusion. The right never has been. We have different "right"s. The Trump-ian populists seem to want to squish us into a mold that was "successful" for the left--because that's a way to "fight back". However, a number of us want to hold to principal.

Understand: that's not something to lose the whole game over, by, say, de facto electing Hillary to appoint Garland for Scalia's (stolen??) seat. But it's also not something that we simply abandon because purity didn't get us a spot to place Gorsuch--who hopefully staves off the deluge.

134 @ace: "... dishing on Hollywood parties ... but won't reveal whose parties there were. "

My guess is that Milo was parroting some of the notorious Bryan Singer gossip, and may not have had any direct experience himself.

Singer quickly outed himself as bisexual rather than gay and had a child with a female partner in 2014 after the stories about his house parties went into wider circulation and threatened his directorship of the X-Men franchise.

It's his life and his experience. He's at least being honest. Unless he is stating kids should do it and isn't pedo/pederasty just super, let's all join in... It's just the way he sees himself and what he does. I get the impression that he doesn't view underage stuff as a positive thing in general, but that he enjoyed it. That's his experience and it's the truth (if it's not entirely made up). It's his truth and he shouldn't bullshit about stuff to appease the crowd.

168 One of George W. Bush's former speechwriters had a draft rejected by Dubya. It was a speech meant for Bush to deliver to the CPAC audience.

Dubya said imperiously to "take out all that stuff about the conservative movement". Because, he explained, there was no "conservative movement" in America worth paying attention to, because he, GEORGE W. BUSH, had successfully "redefined" the Republican party away from conservatism.

(Cue, a short time later, the "redefined" Republican party losing control of both the House and Senate, and two years after that, GWB slinking out of the White House with record-low approval ratings.)

Anyway, Bush delivered his rewritten speech on schedule. No one at CPAC apparently noticed the lack of actual conservatism in what was supposed to be a speech to conservatives. Which should tell you a whole lot about what CPAC had degenerated into over the years.

He must be destroyed. If "white supremacist" or "anti-semite" didn't do it, this might. Note it's not like the Rogan interview was made yesterday. Someone at CPAC was looking around for something to nail him with.

This might work because child molestation is still (thankfully) so taboo in our society that many will immediately recoil from anybody associated with it. Nevermind that Milo himself was the one who was underage.

179 This is a person who set up a "charity" for white boys wanting to go college. He raised $100,000 and gave zero back. Zero.

Ben Shapiro, whom I'm not a fan of in particular (for nothing more than stylistic reasons), had a baby last year. Milo sent Ben a "congratulations" tweet with a picture of a black baby. Why? Hell if I know. He has lost his ever-loving mind.

That's just shit I've learned in five days. I quit reading him long before he was nuked last year on Twitter only because his work about pushing back against the left seemed less about hitting the left and more about promoting himself and his performance art crap.

As someone who followed his career and very much liked him in the beginning, he's gone totally off the reservation. I've been making this point on twitter (I'm lilmissrightie on twitter btw), his "friends" don't need to be retweeting praise for him - he's lost his shit - they need to get him some help. He went after Salon for this very shit a year and half ago and now he's Saloned himself! Drugs? Who knows. Clearly f'd in the head. He needs help; not accolades and faint praises for being the brave gay dude who sticks it to the left.

He is not anyone's hill to die on, be it, conservative, squish, right-of-center, whatever. He's opportunistic and a grifter and this downfall, if you can call it that, will springboard him to re-brand himself into something that has nothing to do with "free speech" or "hitting the left" or whatever anyone here wants to call it.

I was played by him for a long time. I hope others see the light on him. He's not the ally you think he is.

(I've read some of the other comments here - this isn't some NeverTrump of McMuffin bullshit I'm selling here. I was not for one day NeverTrump. I voted for him, ferchrissakes.)

Trump and Pence are now speaking at this event. There was no way in bleeping hell they could take the stage with this mess brewing. Sure, Netroots is psychotic every year, and they don't call it Nutroots for a reason, and yes, the rules are different for us, but that's life. You play the cards you're dealt with.

I don't see this as as witchhunt or the "outrage brigade" doing their thing. It's about drawing a line. We all have them. I'd say any talk, joke, in jest, or slip of the tongue, about pederasty is a bridge too far for most people, but ymmv.

(My comments are strictly about CPAC btw. The book deal is a different matter. I'm not sure how Lena Dunham can actually publish pages about actually diddling her baby sister and this is okay, but, whatever. As for Breitbart, the report in The Hill is that six staffers are threatening to walk if he's not fired. But, yeah, The Hill, so grain of salt and all.)

Just as a tire of the SJW Outrage Brigades, conversely, I tire of feeling like I have to go to the mattresses for people who area kind of pieces of shit because SWJ went after them. At a certain point I think everyone can all foad and I wash my hands of all of them.

185 My first instinct was similar to yours, Ace, and then I watched the second video. It seems cut-and-dried to me that, in the context of denouncing "arbitrary" age-of-consent laws, he's describing sexual encounters between fully grown men and boys as young as 13 as "life affirming" moments. Maybe to him, they were. I'm guessing such moments aren't so "life affirming" to others, though, which is why we have age-of-consent laws. There was no *wink-wink* aren't-I-so-edgy-and-dangerous playfulness to his tone, either, nor was he speaking only in the context of his own experience. He e refused to name the adults he knew had had sex with teens.

I was generally pro-Milo before this, for the same reason I was pro-Gellar wrt her Draw Mohammad contest: being provocative in the service of freedom has it's time and place, and I'm of the opinion that 21st century America is that time and place. While the freedom to draw Mohammed is one I absolutely support, the freedom to have sex with young teens is one I do not support. I suspect this is what is driving most right-of-center objection to Milo at the moment.

For the record, I do NOT believe that Milo was lobbying for *his own* right to sex-up teens, but rather to explain his feelings of his own experience. I personally don't see how that makes it much better, though.

THIS, THIS, THIS a million times over. I'm sick of the Leftist insistence that one need to either agree or oppose vehemently anything that you come across in its entirety.

I'm not a fan of lots of things that Milo says and stands for. But one thing he is strongly FOR is that I and my community get to dictate our rules for ourselves. That principle undergirds out ability to oppose the things we dislike about Milo in our own social/economic circles. If we throw that principle out, then we're in the same territory as the SJWs who want to use the State to enforce their own morality everywhere.

While pointedly disagreeing in certain instances, I stand by Milo.

I wouldn't fight for him, he doesn't need defending. He's perfectly able to defend himself. I'm concerned he might view a pistol as a very easy way out right now, but he doesn't need me to defend him.

If - BIG if - Milo is proven to be a pedophile, or has pro pedophile opinions, and when I say proven, I mean from absolutely unassailable multiple source, then it's the right thing to do. And a really horrible thing both for him personally and politically for us considering he is a force to be reckoned with.

Posted by: J.J. Sefton at February 20, 2017 05:49 PM (mbhDw)

++++

Well, first off if you are going to read what Milo says to try to determine where he comes down on these issues, is you first have to recognize the definitions of the words he is using, or at least recognize his definition of those words.

When he uses the term "pedophilia", he is talking about an adult engaging in sexual acts with a per-pubescent child. Milo has explicitly denounced that activity and his discussions about what occurred to him in his youth were about things that happened to him as a teenager. Pederasty is the term he uses.

When he does talk about his experiences with pederasty, he has was always the youth. And, he portrays himself as the pursuer in at least some of those encounters. As far as I know, there are no accusations that he, as an adult, messed around with anyone underage.

Personally, I am no fan of Milo's. But, that is a result of his flamboyant homosexuality. Just not something I care to watch. As far as him seducing a priest when he was 14, I don't really care. I am not going to be outraged, or pretend to be outraged. Teens are horny little bastards, and many of them engage in sexual activity. This will continue for the foreseeable future.

Posted by: Anon Y. Mous at February 20, 2017 06:31 PM (R+30W)

207 @165: "... this was a McMuffin joint."

One of the three pedophiles that Milo claims to have outed was Louise Mensch's first husband.

Her brand of crazy is something special. Huge McMullin proponent during the election. Currently pimping stories that Giuliani is beholden to Russian gangsters and Weiner's laptop scandal was a deliberate catfishing, hacking, and evidence planting operation coordinated between Putin's henchmen and dark forces within the NY FBI field office.

Her Twitter timeline is worth a deep dive if you enjoy sniffing glue.

Second, unless Milo has a much better offer (and not knowing what Vox might be able to offer), Vox is presenting him with an offer difficult to refuse.

Our party is filled to the brim with pussies in short pants.

We do not know that Milo endorses pedophilia. We can, however, I presume, research, and verify or discredit, his claimed history of turning over pedophiles to authorities.

It's a very tough spot in which he has placed himself and those who want to support free, even provocative speech.

I don't think he should be burned at the stake for what we do and do not know, but do think that it's enough, at this point, to withdraw his pulpit at CPAC.

Then again, I simply do not get the draw to CPAC anyway. It was only two or three years ago that GOProud wasn't even allowed to attend, because they are a gay, otherwise conservative organization. NOW they want the most loud, proud,, vulgar, and provocative gay man in America to speak?

The whole thing reeks of sensationalism from CPAC.

Another thing... I asked on twitter: If this video has been around for a year, why is it JUST NOW being revealed by a "Reagan Republican" website? Why wouldn't they have wanted to stop the evil-doer in his tracks as soon as possible?

Something stinks in suburbia.

Posted by: Niedermeyer's Dead Horse at February 20, 2017 06:34 PM (SEXy3)

219 I wish Trump would go to CPAC and stand up for Milo.

"I don't agree with Milo's values, to put it mildly. If he wants to have black boyfriends, fine, it's even fine if he brags about it, but come on, at some point you ease up, even I shut up about it sometimes at that age.

But he hates the pedos. Hates 'em. Exposed three of them, and one is on trial for rape now. Good for you, son. The lies spoken about him arr the exact same as the ones that said I bragged about sexual assault, from the same people. And just know this: we will remember you."

I'm not really angry about this, because Trump and Milo won in spite of the "conservative" movement, with some rare exceptions. I take more umbrage with Kristol being able to walk around breathing American air, even if I thought Milo was guilty. Which I don't, not for a second. Anyone demanding for us to watch the video, instead of the true interviews they were deceitfully edited in from, is not just ignorant. They are the enemy.

229 Here's my take on Milo's current situation.

In his less outrageous days, he's made comments about homosexuality being a bit sad and empty. He seems to have a full understanding of the not so rainbow side of being gay.

He was molested but steadfastly refuses to play the part of the victim. So where does that leave him? Saying that what happened to him wasn't really s bad thing but rather something that just happens in the gay community and maybe it's even ok.

A LOT of gay men say similar things. If we are going to destroy Milo over this, we damn sure better go after the whole mindset, and that means facing some really uncomfortable truths.

232 What Milo is arguing, I think, is that life sucks sometimes.

You can live through ugly experiences, perhaps even joke about them (one might note the presence of Werner Klemperer, John Banner, Robert Clary, and the rest of the extensively Jewish cast of 'Hogan's Heroes') without having your life destroyed by them.

Was Milo already actively gay by that age? I can't speak for the gay part, but I've had periodic (friendly) email exchanges with a woman of my long-term acquaintance, now long settled a long way away, who often finds occasion for reminding me I should have fucked her brains out five times a week and twice on Sunday back when she was fourteen and I was just enough older to matter, and, frankly (pedophilia alert!) she's right.

But I wasn't an authority figure, just a friend of a relative.

I'll need to do a little more looking before I know what to think of the Milo thing.

233 And of course the "Establishment conservatives" who spread those videos are in complete denial about how CPAC disinviting Milo is similar to what the colleges have done.

As for your mention of Pamela Geller;
When the shooting happened I pointed out, particularly for the "conservatives" spouting "I believe in free speech, but Pamela Geller is obnoxious", that what they were really saying is "I don't believe in free speech for anyone I don't like" - just like the SJWs and terrorists.
If they really insisted on getting in a dig at her while condemning the terrorists, the proper phrasing would be "Pamela Geller is obnoxious, but I believe in free speech".

In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.

Milo shoots from the lip a lot. He uses a lot of asides, mostly to amuse himself is the impression that I get.

I have yet to read the pertinent documents on this, but I have never gotten an impression that he is pro-pedophilia. In fact, quite the opposite from his attacking of the pro-pedophilia hack at Salon.

IKR ? I for one was horney as hell when I was 14. I couldn't get anything but magazines and tapes until years later but if I had the opportunity at the time I would have enjoyed it. Now, not so much gay sex for my part. But if an older woman would have been willing you're darn right I would have been all over that.

My thoughts as well. However, Pedophile Island was actually doing teenagers, while Milo was merely going on about that type of relationship.

I saw a guy on PJMedia who responded that attraction to prepubescent children is the clinical definition of "pedophilia"--but who here wants to cite the very recently popular definition of "authoritarianism" which (before being identified as a a complete data flip-flop) saw the authoritarian impulse being correlated to conservative politics?

Everything has been politicized these days. The dictionary says that pedophilia is attraction to children (full stop), we wouldn't need to specify "prepubescent children" if the word "children" didn't otherwise apply.

Can we cite the effects of the Gramscian march, while stating that something should be uniformly unobjectionable simply because it's a popular clinical definition--having already moved the chains?

Keep in mind that Milo hasn't actually DONE anything. He is not Jerry Sandusky. He just stated his opinion that older men having sex with teenaged boys (NOT children) is not necessarily a bad thing, in his view. That's a disgusting opinion, but to crucify him for it...?

242 Here's the dirty secret that got Milo shitcanned.

Men like the young.

Young males, young females.

I'm not saying pre-pubescent. Those that like that, jail 'em. They're preying on innocence.

But at a certain age in a youth, the hormones kick in. You get hard. The motor's turned on and you want to try it out.

Don't y'all remember that?

The joker in the deck is that puberty comes at different times, but the law says 18.

Does anyone's dick first get hard at 18? Anyone's pussy get moist at the thought of the boyz?

If Milo had admitted that and simply said, "The law says you can't have sex until you're 18. I follow that law" and shut up right then and there, maybe what happened wouldn't have happened.

But he didn't. He went full nuance.

You never go full nuance in politics. They'll destroy you.

254 CPAC is very GOPe.

I remember Ann Coulter observing in a past CPAC that she and one Donald Trump were the only speakers arguing against amnesty (uh, excuse me, "comprehensive immigration reform").

If I were in charge of CPAC I would have David Horowitz in the prime speaking slot talking about the importance of everyone coming together on Trump's agenda, and then introducing the President to give some remarks.

261 This is why the left always wins in the end. They may suffer setbacks but they always win in the long run. They don't have better ideas or arguments. But they have the one thing that is required to win the long game...LOYALTY. Doesn't matter what a leftist says or does, other leftists defend him/her to the death.

263 I don't think the "exposing three pedophiles" means anything because 1, he's a journalist who advances with each hit and big story, and 2, at least two of those people seem to be enemies of his so he'd have reason enough to expose them even if he had no particular objection to pedophilia.

otoh, i don't see much evidence that he is a pedophile, except he cracked wise about it.

I have a joke which I got from a movie. It's not a particularly good joke and I don't tell it often. I only tell it when someone tells a dark, un-pc joke, and I'm just offering up one in return.

Here's the joke:

"What's the biggest cause of sexual abuse of minors?"

Give up?

"Sexy, sexy children."

We seem to be cursed to imitate the left in all of its lunacies. If they talk about "normalization" of things they don't like by trivial actions (or jokes), now WE all have to climb upon the "normalization is almost as bad as the thing being normalized" bandwagon.

It's not. People tell jokes. People use irony. People deal with dark subjects with dark humor.

You know what doctors say? "You're not really a doctor until you've killed your first patient."

Are doctors 'normalizing" malpractice and murder, or just making a dark joke about a dark reality of their profession?

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at February 20, 2017 06:44 PM (39g3+)

265 If Milo had admitted that and simply said, "The law says you can't have sex until you're 18. I follow that law" and shut up right then and there, maybe what happened wouldn't have happened.

But he didn't. He went full nuance.

You never go full nuance in politics. They'll destroy you.
Posted by: Kim Jong Nam at February 20, 2017 06:40 PM (D2SPO)

I voted for Trump not because I particularly liked Trump or thought I would like everything he did, but because I thought he would be a breath of fresh air in the face of this Kabuki crap we've all got so used to over the past 30 years that all just goes to blow smoke & money up the collective asses of the political/journalist class while they do nothing but business as usual without giving a damn about the base.

I'm reading so many verbal knife fights fought with bad logic and presumed outcomes and basic prejudgment.

But Tolerance of Speech means tolerance of all speech. That means pretty much what it says. Even speech that offends you. You have a choice to not listen, but not the obligation to "other" someone for holding an opinion even if it disgusts you.

It would be different if Milo were diddling kids, but that is not the question here.

It feels like so many people disliked Milo because of what his lifestyle is, but felt they had to be quiet because of what he said and who he pissed off; when a pretext was provided to dislike or attack him then that was the reason given for attacking him for what people actually hated about him.

I don't care what he's done, what he's accused of, or even if he actually did it.

Milo is a fucking gladiator, he's on our side, and he's doing a fantastic (dare I say fabulous?) job taking the fight to the enemy.  He's fighting where most of us won't, or even can't.  He's one of the strongest pieces our side has on the board, and once again the right-wing circular firing squad is coming into play.

Not me.  I refuse to fire on an ally in time of war.  Fuck that.

The champions on the Left are a collection of pretty vile people, and do we see them being burned alive for it?  Fuck no! The Leftys, for all their faults, have their fucking priorities straight.  Ace has said it again and again, this is war, and I'm not going to be forced to bind my hands following a set of rules that the Left routinely ignores.

He was a horny boy who experimented in a sexual act that he wanted to engage in. when I was an early teen I would have jumped at the chance to have a sexual encounter with an adult female. If he had been an adult, preying on young teens of any gender then that would have been unforgivable in my book.

i could see how you could judge him. The "best" thing to do is to always express whatever narrative is in the best interests of society.

Don't do drugs. Don't smoke. Don't curse.

Even conceding that's the best thing to do -- do we ALWAYS have to be at our best? Do we ever get to let our hair down and be a little bit bad?

And if we do occasionaly be a little bit bad -- what's the penalty? What should it be?

what's my penalty for the sexy, sexy children joke? (Which I don't even think is all that great.)

I'm "normalizing" pedophilia -- perhaps someone out there takes the joke as encouragement to commit a sex crime with a minor, because he felt that my joke, by winking at the idea of it, indicated that it wasn't all that serious.

This is a structure of morality in which literally everything we say is postulated to have a Butterfly Effect sort of influence over other people, thousands of miles away, so we must NEVER say ANYTHING except the most law-abiding, pro-social-policy, pro-child, pro-family, pro-miltiary, anti-racism, anti-lookism, etc. thing possible.

Despite being untrue, it cost him a TV show, his place on his network, and his favored ad status. All in all, millions of dollars.

Pewdiepie has over 50 million subscribers.

They have figured out a way to take out the "influencers," people - individuals who have the ability and reach to counter the cultural messages of the institutions they control. And notice - this was done by the WSJ... not Buzzfeed. This is the media attacking, not the right or the left.

Almost all great humor comes from a very dark place. Almost all great comedians are themselves tortured and miserable, not always but so many.

COps, morticians, firemen, military folks, all deal in very dark humor as part of dealing with their job.

It depends on which dictionary you check. Some, as you say, just say attraction to children. Others, specify prepubescent children.

sexual perversion in which children are the preferred sexual object; specifically : a psychological disorder in which an adult has sexual fantasies about or engages in sexual acts with a prepubescent child

322 Aaaaannnnd we now see the CPAC right in its full snowflake glory. After all, it wasn't too long ago that they would take offense at the slightest provocation. Then they made their peace with Milo because they wanted to win the election and now that they don't have to worry about the supreme court, it's time to purge the ranks.

And imagine the right calling a gay man a pedophile? Couldn't have seen that coming. And yes I have watched the video and if that is why they are going after Milo, it's pathetic. If Trump really does have a pair, he'll decline CPAC's invitation once again.

328 I watched Milo's Facebook video, read his Facebook posting, and clicked his provided links and read through those.

Milo really does seem to have outed three pedophiles with his reporting. As he noted, it actually costs money to do such stories, as you have to check everything and get review by lawyers to make sure you aren't opening yourself up for slander charges.

Milo said they edited video of him to make a deceptive cut that makes him look bad. He said that originally he was talking about the fad of leftists to demand ridiculous levels of consent, like "I want to put my hand on your thigh. Is that okay? ... Now I want to kiss your lips with my lips. Is that okay?" etc. etc. ad nauseum. In that context, he made some comment about "consent is BS" and now he said that they edited the video to put that comment into the context of "age of consent" so that it sounded like he was saying "age of consent is BS". That's Michael Moore levels of dishonest editing, and I don't want to see that kind of sleaze win.

Milo loves saying outrageous things, making outrageous jokes, even dark jokes. The Left wants to use that as an excuse to crucify him.

It's okay for a Left person to say something like "let's just kill Trump and I am not even joking" because it's obviously a harmless joke. Milo can make IMHO obvious jokes and the Left says "that is beyond the pale and he must be silenced". (Remember "a few broken windows are not violence, [the words Milo says] are the real violence"?)

The Left collectively keeps throwing stuff at the walls and seeing what sticks. They've had Milo (among others) in their sights for a long time now, and they have found something that seems to be sticking so they will double down on it. Hey, let's crucify Milo!

I imagine that he will survive this and come back from it. He may start cutting back on his edgy humor, and I'm of two minds about that. On the one hand, he says things I would never say, so if he dials back on the edginess he's becoming more like me, which is hard for me to disapprove. But on the other hand, I'm kind of boring and he's not; his flamboyance is part of who he is and helps him gain attention for the issues he wants to discuss, and I want that to continue. Plus, I enjoy some of the outrageous stuff he has said, and if the Left can force him to change, they're keeping him down.

Posted by: mr_jack at February 20, 2017 06:53 PM (M59SC)

329 i could see how you could judge him. The "best" thing to do is to always express whatever narrative is in the best interests of society.

Don't do drugs. Don't smoke. Don't curse.

Even conceding that's the best thing to do -- do we ALWAYS have to be at our best? Do we ever get to let our hair down and be a little bit bad?

And if we do occasionaly be a little bit bad -- what's the penalty? What should it be?

what's my penalty for the sexy, sexy children joke? (Which I don't even think is all that great.)

I'm "normalizing" pedophilia -- perhaps someone out there takes the joke as encouragement to commit a sex crime with a minor, because he felt that my joke, by winking at the idea of it, indicated that it wasn't all that serious.

This is a structure of morality in which literally everything we say is postulated to have a Butterfly Effect sort of influence over other people, thousands of miles away, so we must NEVER say ANYTHING except the most law-abiding, pro-social-policy, pro-child, pro-family, pro-miltiary, anti-racism, anti-lookism, etc. thing possible.

No. I cannot do that. I cannot live my life as a Robot basically offering up Davey and Goliath pro-morality messages with every breath I take.

347 I also have stated I will not participate with Leftist Speech Codes, or with Outrage Mobs orchestrated by the leftists and their NeverTrump allies. Hence why I did not support taking the confederate symbols down at that moment, will not be the first to tear down Milo, and supported Trump. Why? Because the left will use that take down as the fuel to take down much, much more important things and people.

Hence why the GOP has been useless in the culture wars, why they left took over academia and entertainment, and why we are losing our national pride. Heck it is why nationalism is now a bad word.

NeverTrumpers are even worse than the standard issue GOP hack, for they actually side with the left enthusiastically instead of a cowardly retreat. Hence why tweets by McMuffin are re-tweeted by BLM activists, and McCain is a hero on MSNBC.

Never give the left an inch, unless there is absolutely no other choice that you must give that inch. Otherwise be prepared for them to turn that inch into a mile.

Not only that, but the law in the US used to be younger, in some cases, much younger.

While the general age of consent is now set between 16 and 18 in all U.S. states, the age of consent has widely varied across the country in the past. In 1880, the age of consent was set at 10 or 12 in most states, with the exception of Delaware where it was 7. The ages of consent were raised across the U.S. during the late 19th century and the early 20th century. By 1920 ages of consent generally rose to 16-18 and small adjustments to these laws occurred after 1920. As of 2015 the final state to raise its age of general consent was Hawaii, which changed it from 14 to 16 in 2001.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_the_United_States

That's right, as recently as the GWB presidency, the age of consent was 14 in part of the USA.

I certainly don't idealize/agree with either worldview overall.

But I know for a fact that regarding sexuality & culture, Milo's world at least would allow me to keep my views and his views separate in our own spheres, whereas the Left view would try to exterminate my world and force me to accept theirs in all aspects of sex & culture.

I'm happy to let Milo and his people be themselves because he's for letting me and my people be ourselves. The Left isn't. And that's why I'm with Milo, disagreements and all.

Milo makes these statements (full disclosure, I don't know all the context about this latest controversy) and he needs to be destroyed.

Both are known for living in that provocateur role (Milo is more explosive, but then, he's fighting against the dominant culture. If Dunham was doing her schtick in an earlier era, she would be the more explosive of the two).

So, yeah. Not condoning what Milo said, but sorry guys. Tear apart Dunham's career first, then come back to me.

383 Milo's comments about his experience are not unusual.

Pedophiles groom their victims to believe that they (the child) is the cause of and in control of the rape. Pedophiles show the kids love, love they are not receiving from someone very important to them - a parent. His father abandoned him & his stepfather was a "tyrant". Pedophiles turn that love into a tool to manipulate the child into "consent". Because the kids may love their pedophile they take the burden and the shame. The shame stays - maybe forever.

How do you reconcile shame? By contorting your memory or accepting that you were not actually responsible. If you weren't responsible then you weren't in charge and for a strong adult that is hard to admit.

He needs understanding for what he has been through and still re-lives. His memory is wrong - it is a delusion.

392 a bizarre bit of Trivia: In Raiders of the Lost Ark, remember when Marion says "I was too young. It was wrong and you knew it?"

And Indy says, "You were old enough to know what you were doing"?

You know how old she was supposed to be when Indy seduced her?

According to the original script conference when they were tossing out ideas, Indy was supposed to be a real rogue. And to prove he was a rogue, they were going to tell you how old Marion was when Indy devirginized her:

She was eleven.

I think their idea was to provide some historical grounding for the film -- the age of consent and marriage were younger in the 30s.

They, um... didn't include that detail in the actual movie, and left it vague.

But look it up: She was supposed to be ELEVEN when they had their "affair."

Milo
makes these statements (full disclosure, I don't know all the context
about this latest controversy) and he needs to be destroyed.

Both
are known for living in that provocateur role (Milo is more explosive,
but then, he's fighting against the dominant culture. If Dunham was
doing her schtick in an earlier era, she would be the more explosive of
the two).

Posted by: ShainS at February 20, 2017 07:08 PM (mt8X9)

407 Oh, and I have a general statement about conservative "purity" tests. I can't pass 'em. I facilitated 2 abortions during the 70s, one for my own brother's girlfriend, and I can't regret that. God gave us free will and we all have to live with our decisions. Never had one myself, but I would have during that time, if necessary. Things were different then; I was different then.

I still can't get behind making abortion illegal, but I do think that states should determine this and not the Feds.

Regarding gays and the Christian standing on that - another brother of mine is gay, and Catholic. He's practically a lay priest. I don't know if he is actively pursuing a relationship now (I don't think so, and I don't ask), but he is one of the kindest, Godliest men I know. I would like him to have true love some day. I'm a big fan of true love.

He once told me that he wanted to find a man like my dear departed (the highest standard, IMHO). I told him that such a man would never be found in a bar. I think he took that to heart. I know he's left his sordid lifestyle behind him (and I'm not judging - I've left my sordid lifestyle behind me as well).

God is about redemption and forgiveness. Any true Christian out there should understand this.

So be careful about the casting of stones. Purity will never be achieved on this earth.

428 BTW: NeverTrumpers, who are such "super hawks" have never explained to me how their ethics and lack of hypocrisy jives with America dropping two atomic bombs on Japan, or even the firebombing of Tokyo, in WWII.

For me it is easy, I will proudly support destroying my enemies in war, no matter how hypocritical it may look. Once the war is over, we can go back to easy life of honor and ethics.

So it is true with our America in the early 21st century. The left has dumped a lot of rules relating to ethics and honor, and we are under no obligation to follow them either. I am so sick of hearing the NeverTrump legion say we must not lower ourselves to that level.

We did in WWII, and we won. When we did not, we lose...like Operation Make the Islamic World Like Us.

429 Ace, if I can offer an opinion?

It seems likely that when sexual abuse occurs and is not violent, the youngster, like Milo, can't avoid arousal.

That deepened arousal increases psychological and intellectual age exponentially, probably more so in intelligent, self-aware people.

Where the psychological, physical and spiritual imbroglio begins and a schtick like Milo's ends is near impossible discover.

This is Gleichschaltung. It's not just political opinions. It's culture. Music. Books. Newspapers, TV shows, you MUST like the product of the dominant culture. If not, you are an enemy of the People and must be expunged.

Any argument or debate over what Milo did or didn't say is besides the point. He doesn't play the game, therefore he must be un-personed. This is just the hook they're hanging their hats on out of convenience.

431 Why now? Milo would have killed at CPAC, if he got there. See what he did on Maher's HBO show this past Friday. He was amazingly charming. Lefties on the panel blew up, reduced to telling Milo to "go fuck yourself." The lone conservative was breaking up laughing. Maher was in deep Bromance.

Give him a CPAC stage he would have been a big voice for Free Speech.

Now he's radioactive in some quarters but his career will go on, but he's been reduced in his dangerousness to the Left, because he can't go mainstream,

432 Short take on Milo:

Quite intelligent. Natural contrarian. Seems psychologically traumatized/unstable. Exhibit A: look at the body language in his interview with Bill Maher.

He has a certain intellectual fearlessness. He could break through the instability, or he could go completely around the bend like David Brock.

Ah, but what they are doing is attempting to remove your opportunity to decide - by suspending his twitter account, protests shutting down his speeches, getting his book cancelled, trying (but failing) to pressure Maher to not have him on his show, and the CPAC.

--Those people can be snobs, but I'm becoming more and more a fan of the localvore concept. Small local farmers do not use illegal or low-skilled labor for their products, and most of the big operations that do also use pesticides on certain produce like strawberries that absorb the chemicals so they can't just be washed off.

Or he has an almost predatory personality that was able to take a priest down a pedophilic path?

Which is it?

This is a problem and was always going to be a problem with Milo as a conservative icon. He says the "gay world" views pederasty differently. Of course it does. It has to to excuse it's behavior and the very well known connection homosexuality has with Nambla.

Ah, but what they are doing is attempting to remove
your opportunity to decide - by suspending his twitter account,
protests shutting down his speeches, getting his book cancelled, trying
(but failing) to pressure Maher to not have him on his show, and the
CPAC.

This is a banning of sorts, convincing the marketplace that they will be punished should they support the wrong sort of person.


No doubt. But if they say "x" and you then automatically say "y", then you're being controlled every bit as much as if they say "x" and you say "x it is".

Stark naked, no less. And even younger than that, in a photo "essay" by an acclaimed photographer, totally nude and made up to appear more adult. She had a very weird childhood but was sexualized her whole young life. The 70s had a lot of that going on, finally there was pushback in the 80s and it was put to a stop but culture was headed to a very dark place.

465 >>>
It seems likely that when sexual abuse occurs and is not violent, the youngster, like Milo, can't avoid arousal.


i take milo at his original word that he was not a "victim" (and I excuse him now claiming he was because when the world is after you, you gotta defend yourself).

So I don't think he was damaged by the event. I take his original account as true.

Look, when I was 14, i wanted to get laid. badly. If it had been with an older woman (and sometimes, in my fantasies, it was), I would have jumped on that.

Would it have psychologcially damaged me? Maybe. A lot of guys on the site used to joke "Wish that was me" when female-teacher-seduces-underage-male-student stories would come up.

But then moms of underage boys would object to that.

We had different frames of reference. The more juvenile males here were seeing their adult selves in that kid's body, and the moms were seeing their own kids being abused.

Obviously, your take there will depend on what you project of yourself into that situation.

Those stories got a little contentious and I flat-out stopped putting them up because I didn't want to disturb the chill of the blog.

anyway, sex is a little more complicated than most people are willing to admit in any kind of argument or policy discussion.

I never had sex with an underage person and as an underage person never had sex with an adult. I have no actual experience in this area, and I can't say for certain that *all* kids are damaged when this happens, or if 90% are, or 80%, or what. I don't know.

i wouldn't necessarily shout down milo though just because he's offering his experience that in his one case, he wasn't.

(And he might have been -- he just might not know it. The stuff that effects us the most profoundly, hell, we might not even be aware of how deeply it effected us.)

but who knows? It's a thing that happened to him. i wasn't there. I don't know him.

I have no real basis to form any kind of opinion on this.

480 392 a bizarre bit of Trivia: In Raiders of the Lost Ark, remember when Marion says "I was too young. It was wrong and you knew it?"

And Indy says, "You were old enough to know what you were doing"?

You know how old she was supposed to be when Indy seduced her?

According to the original script conference when they were tossing out ideas, Indy was supposed to be a real rogue. And to prove he was a rogue, they were going to tell you how old Marion was when Indy devirginized her:

She was eleven.

I think their idea was to provide some historical grounding for the film -- the age of consent and marriage were younger in the 30s.

They, um... didn't include that detail in the actual movie, and left it vague.

But look it up: She was supposed to be ELEVEN when they had their "affair."

The Age of Maximally-Hostile Interpretation. Because someone is The Other, you are allowed to "reframe" what they said into what you think the Dreaded Other would say, like illegal immigrants becomes immigrants, or problems in Sweden becomes a specific terror attack in Sweden, or "think about illegals when you vote" becomes "illegals should vote," to take an example from the other side (seriously, look at the transcripts).

People, on average, are *desperate* for a "clean win," and a clean win means your opponent is not just wrong, they are evil.

*Mostly* this has been a leftist problem because they have the academic and media and entertainment support system to back up their hostile interpretations. But it's a human problem, ultimately.

489 Twinks (young but legal) with older men are staples in the gay community. It's called "grooming."
Despite what Hollywood tells you --where EVERY show on the TV has at least ONE gay character, gays actually make up a very small percentage of society. So, the gay teen at the local high school doesn't have a big pool to choice from for his sexual experimentation like his heterosexual peers do. This leads this young boys (perhaps not of the legal consent age, but POST-PUBERTY, so it's not pedophilia) to seek that out elsewhere, and often that leads them to older men.
That is what Milo is talking about when you listen to the full 3 hour, unedited tape. And having grown up in a city with a large gay population, it's true.
What Milo expounds on is that the age of consent is arbitrary -- why is it OK at 17 but not ok at 16? (In other places, 16 is OK, not 15).
Anyway, I agree with him that the age of consent is arbitrary --I've seen plenty of "unequal" relationships between 2 teens to know that just reaching the age of consent doesn't make one magically able to consent to things they were unable to the day before. Nonetheless, IMO, the line does have to be drawn somewhere.
But the younger post-pubescent boys with older men is a real thing in the gay community that the left in their fury to normalize it simply ignores. Milo made the mistake of talking about it openly. But he does not, in any kind of way, "advocate *for* pedophilia." That's a deliberately dishonest characterization of what he's says.
Also, the fact that he started his sexual experiences at 13 -- and insists he wasn't a "victim" -- has obviously covered his thoughts on this. Many who start sexual conduct young rationalize that they were not "taken advantage of" etc. That isn't a little thing that should be dismissed when weighing what he says.
And he does make clear that he thinks it is SOME who may be able to consent earlier than the statutory age of consent -- he concedes that for most, the age of consent is probably right.
Whatever -- like I said, his main sin here was not being #NeverTrump and exposing a common practice in the gay community.

If American citizens really won't do agricultural work no matter how large of a paycheck is offered, then the obvious solution is to offer more H2 visas.

Same here. Every gay man I've had the "how did you decide you were gay" discussion with has told me their first encounter was as a child or underage teen. Sometimes it was consensual with a peer while other times they were molested by someone older.

517 I think it's easy for an older, almost-29-year-old man like myself to project backwards into the past and claim that if an older woman seduced me, I would have been all hit-it-and-quit-it and wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am, but the older me is more cynical and knowing, and the younger me fell in love at the drop of a hat (and stayed in love for years).

So you are saying that it's ok for a 14yr old to prey on an adult man and make him eligible for prison for pederasty?

Sheesh. He was groomed. It's revisionist history now. He'll never know whether he would have taken the normal path without the deviation by the deviant priest.

Or he's got a predatory personality problem himself.

521 Pretty clear cut in my eyes. Either you're with those who believe they have the right to use their righteous judgement to destroy someone's life, or you're not. Milo is one of the main figures against the political correctness advocates in our society especially among those who are younger. He's had an impact winning over a large number of college age kids. You can admit defeat to the power of political correctness or you can do what we've been doing for the past year and collectively tell these people "fuck you"

I'm still that way.

I can fall in love in a heartbeat, and do.

And I will forever remember it. Each and every time.


However, I also would have appreciated somebody learning me that the majority of women will use their sexuality as a tool to achieve whatever capricious objective that pops into their heads. Without guilt and without hesitation.


That lesson would have been more valuable then the antiquated notions I was raised to believe and to seek.

http://www.scifiwright.com/2014/06/the-evil-league-of-evil-is-given-pious-advice/

Pretty much, if we are to be burned at the stake for demanding that these things be put to an honest test, then bring on the torches. I honestly don't know Milo Yiannapolis, and have not reviewed his taps, but if calling for level heads before torches gets me metaphorically burned at the stake, so be it.

Lynch mobs must not be tolerated, and this? This is a lynch mob on the hunt.

532 First I heard of Milo was pre-Gamergate, I think, or around then. I read a game review of his on Breitbart and thought to myself - "This dude is basically an unreconstructed leftist." Nothing that has happened since has changed my mind. I don't know if its for real or for show, but I'd watch out getting too invested.

That having been said, he has the right to free speech, and CPAC has the right of free association.

An interesting test would be to see if they would let him buy a table in the exhibition hall.

When those on the other side start paying a price for their transgressions and when they apply a consistent set of principles to those in their ranks, maybe I'll think about it.

535 What gets me about all this is that Milo's comments are in line with positions staked out by many 'pink' left activists advocating breaking down traditional standards on sexuality and age of consent- where has the outrage been then? That the left jumps whole hog onto this now is pretty richly ironic.

Some online have called this "the GamerGate election"; a number of young people of all races were "woke" to the corrosive effects of the Left as part of that phenomenon, and a number of the "ringleaders" later were out-and-proud Trump supporters.

I think this Milo thing is intended to be the first stage in impeaching Trump. The threads from here aren't hard to follow: Steve Bannon, of course, and Milo had VIP credentials from Trump on Election Night.

And you know I think Milo is in that sort of "almost 29" age range. So his I was mature enough at an age younger than the age of consent law says, isn't exactly a surprising thing for him to say. As I mentioned I think a lot of us have that "I'm definitely ready for this situation even if the law says 'no'"

I didn't vote for Trump. I don't agree with Milo on a lot of things. But I had pre-ordered his book because free speech is that important.

This shit must stop. While the left's attack is to be expected, it is absolutely DISGUSTING to see people on the right go after him based on one stupid little comment. Screw CPAC and screw the NeverTrumpers.

I have nothing in common with these losers who will gladly sit back and watch the left continue to suppress university opinion on campuses and elsewhere just because the counter message isn't coming from the right people. Oh, dear, someone on our side gave a controversial opinion. We can't have that!

This is the last straw. No more money going to conservative groups except those that have clearly and explicitly stood on the right side. No more time wasted talking to losers who did (and will) do nothing to advance causes I care about. No more. The end.

BTW, I am contacting Simon Schuster and letting them know that their horrible decision will have an impact on my future purchases of books they publish. I encourage others to do the same. It won't reverse the decision, but they at least nee to be made aware that there are many people outside of their bubble that are very unhappy with their decision.

He also has interesting, thoughtful, not easily categorized views on sexuality and related cultural issues.

However, I can't imagine that a CPAC appearance would do anything but lead to grief for all parties.

I thought you mentioned Milo being on the alt-right when I first read this, but I can't find it. In the Maher interview he says he is hated on the alt-right. It may be them (whoever they are) but who knows.

Read his explanation on FB and it's plausible. The clips or posts of what he said all seem to be edited so I'll withhold judgment. It the timing of this that I have trouble with, there's a motive there and it's to destroy an effective advocate for free sppech against the Left.

555 I'd just say to listen to his talk at Colorado Springs or Cal Poly from his Youtube Channel. He's making the case that I think we agree on while throwing out some rude, outrageous shit back at SJWs and Identity Politics people. When NR types criticize him as being content-free, it's clear that they've never taken an hour or two to listen to an actual talk.

It's crossed my mind that I wouldn't be shocked if the whole Bruno persona were just a way to be able to make the "White, Christian, Cis-Male, Straight" Classical Liberal view without being blown up immediately by the identity politics paradigm that almost everyone has started to accept - "you can't say that because you're not a ...." THis is not unlike white, male lefties who pretended to be Iraqi women bloggers or whatever about 10 years ago to say what they wanted to say against the war AND be heard by people like themselves.

Just look at the behavior of Harvey Milk. Recognizing that and remarking on it is not approval of it, I don't think.

Oh goody. Slippery slope arguments who told us that simply allowing gay people to be gay--with consenting adults--would never lead to anything more--and even suggesting it would was a SLIPPERY SLOPE.

Ace wrote something earlier about the Overton Window shifting--as a good thing. So people who want to be conservatives and have conservative principles have to accept that Milo meant only and exactly what he said and nothing more can be made out of his "oppressive" "one-size-fits-all" "consent" musings.

Does this Overton window thing move or not?

562 He's being "Akin-ed."

He's smarter than Todd but the means used is very similar.

As far as the book, if the deal has gone away he should self-publish to cut out the middle man publishing industry which only exists to use their profits to feed unreadable left "authors."

Posted by: geoffb5 at February 20, 2017 08:29 PM (d3wbb)

563 Here is the deal, Ace:

The clips HAVE been edited to increase Milo's culpability.

Without that editing, he is less culpable.

(He does not, for example, actually advocate older men soliciting masturbation from boys below the age of consent, or anyone prepubescent. On the contrary, he firmly opposes it.)

But, even unedited, he is NOT guiltless.

For example, he does suggest with perfect seriousness that post-pubescent boys below the age of consent are mature enough to be plied for sex by older men without it being necessarily evil. (He includes himself as an example.) And he sees nothing wrong with boys who are just barely past the age of consent entering into homosexual relationships with men decades older.

Please note: He is not saying that older men seeking sexual relationships with boys under the age of consent shouldn't be against the law. He is saying that the law is correct...but only because an arbitrary age-of-consent must be drawn somewhere and 16 is "about right" for most boys.

But, he is also saying that, in the case of a sexually precocious 13-year-old such as himself, the need for an arbitrary age-limit is the only reason such a relationship is wrong, and that if the law could be written with a maturity-based limit rather than chronological-age-based limit, then a relationship between himself at age 13 and a 29-year-old older man would be a positive social good.

And as for a 16-year-old boy? He is not only saying that a sexual relationship between that boy and a 29-year-old man is should be legal, but that it is not morally objectionable in any way.

This young man is looking less composed, more haunted by the minute. He will hit bottom at some later point (I don't think this is it).

Conservatives should stop having him for a spokesman. His evident happiness at the thought of 16-year-old boys (and perhaps a few, um, talented younger ones, if only the law weren't such a blunt instrument) being seduced by men twice their age disqualifies him.

Doesn't it?

Seriously, doesn't it?

I'm not talking about what's outlawed, here. Conservatives believe there's more to what is immoral than merely what is illegal. I'm talking about what Conservatives hold to be good for humans as humans, and what Milo does.

There is a wide gulf between them, on this point.

Isn't there?

566 Rereading my last post, I find myself wishing I could edit it.

So, to cover myself:

1. I hope Milo will become a more stable individual than he is, and not commit suicide when his 15 minutes are up.

2. The way he's looking recently makes me a bit concerned for him, in that area.

3. Even if conservatives DON'T disagree with Milo about what constitutes a healthy sexuality, they should stop having him as a spokesperson before he implodes.

4. I did not intend the bad, bad pun about him probably "hitting bottom" at some point in the future. Yes, yes, I get it: He probably has already done so, a lot. Har, har. Fine. But I was concerned for the lad's well-being, not being snarky. The LEFT likes to eat its children when it's done using them. Let's not be like them.

Other minor errata, I think folks can figure out what I meant.

567 Killing Milo is killing Trump. That's all this is.

I like Milo. I didn't know anything about his sexual history until this thread because I've been more interested in his Gamergate/free speech issues. I've seen interviews with him where he is thoughtful, informed and even philosophical. I know that he is outrageous and flamboyant at times... Maybe this persona got away from him.

"Nazi" and "fascist" were so ridiculous that they were only working to his advantage, so they had to find something else. Killing Milo is killing Trump, which is the real objective here.

570 But, he is also saying that, in the case of a sexually precocious
13-year-old such as himself, the need for an arbitrary age-limit is the
only reason such a relationship is wrong, and that if the law could be
written with a maturity-based limit rather than chronological-age-based
limit, then a relationship between himself at age 13 and a 29-year-old
older man would be a positive social good.



And as for a 16-year-old boy? He is not only saying that a sexual
relationship between that boy and a 29-year-old man is should be legal,
but that it is not morally objectionable in any way.



This young man is looking less composed, more haunted by the minute.
He will hit bottom at some later point (I don't think this is it).

First, I think that no moral person (especially including conservatives) should cosign this opinion. The types of relationships he views as not morally reprehensible are wrong and should not be normalized. Those types of relationships are from what I understand, however, common in the gay community. So common that it was unremarkable in the early days of "gay rights" for NAMBLA to march in gay pride parades. NAMBLA was also one of the member groups of the ILGA from 1978 until they were expelled from the group when the UN gave them consultative status.


Second, I will say again that it appears Milo was abused and rather than recognize that he prefers to believe that what happened to him was and is normal.

Milo opposes all the trannies in bathrooms crap. Is not in favor of gay marriage. And is definitely not on board with the forcing of bakeries to bake a cake for a gay wedding against their will. He even went to Memories Pizza to talk to them and gave them his support.

580 Tammy Bruce is another very effective gay spokesperson for the conservative cause, and, guess what? She was also seduced by a much older person at a very young age, and feels that it didn't damage her, but rather helped her to discover herself.

She and Milo have both since spoken out against pedophilia in general, while embracing what happened to them personally as just part of who they are.

As others have stated, this is a common backstory among the gay community.

Yes, we must absolutely punish child molestation and statutory rape. But we can't get bent out of shape when an effective spokesperson for our worldview embraces a terrible thing that happened to him/her as just "part of who I am", especially when that person considers the crime to be generally a big net minus for society.

585 Lots of great stuff here. Liked Ace's Indiana/Marion story... Made me play that sequence in my head, which ended with her saying, "Do you know what you did to me; to my life??" Takes on a slightly different tone when filtered through Original Intent!

As re: pop song status, there's Stevie Nicks' "Edge of Seventeen" ("He was no more than a baby..."). And most of Hollywood giving Polanski a standing-O. And there's the fact that Woody Allen appears to be rehabilitated, in the eyes of the general public.

I knew of Milo from the periphery, until he got kicked off Twitter -- then I started checking out his YT gigs. I watched his recent RT appearance and was charmed -- he reminded, and reminds me, of most of who I hung out with in the 80s, when I scratched out a living as an actress, doing sidework as a shopgirl. There in the family of the theatre, and upscale retail, dwelt many Milos. Some of whom were jerks; some were darlings. His tossed-off trash plays like a rerun of a thousand cast parties I attended. I think he's funny, and often right on the mark. The rest of what he says is white noise to me now, as it was then.

I agree that today's Reveal, of info that's been in the public domain for months, smacks of set-up. I'm not on Twitter, so I don't have to worry about my TL cluttering up with accusations that I'm promoting pedophilia.

I join his little old Baptist ladies in praying for him tonight.

This is just noise. As for the pedophilia part, there are obviously a lot of people compromised in our govt. Go after them instead of promoting someone selling his sentimental education by NAMBLA.

Posted by: Nevermind at February 20, 2017 09:54 PM (nCKKS)

588 Milo is, of course, funny and smart.

And he is, of course, correct to oppose the fascism of the regressive leftists.

And it is nice to see the left justly hoisted on their own petard, when a partly-Jewish gay man with a succession of black boyfriends calls them out on their authoritarian and anti-intellectual horses***.

All that goes without saying, or should.

And, the videos were tendentiously edited to make his views sound worse than they are. Nobody should excoriate Milo for things he doesn't actually think.

And, 99% of the "objectionable" things he's said are "objectionable" because they're true, and painfully obvious, but they're in that list of things you're not supposed to say, and he not only said them, but said them cruelly and got people to laugh with him.

NOT, in my view, a capital offense.

So I appreciate some of his talent and some of his social impact. I am in some ways sympathetic to him.

But it's time the conservatives and the sane Trump supporters politely parted ways with him. Wish him well; don't crush him, but steer clear from here on out. Befriend him privately to help keep him on an even keel...but don't have him as spokesman!

This is not to destroy him, but to prevent his eventual implosion from doing damage.

Why?

First, because some of the things that he does think are incompatible with moral sanity.

You can still be a conservative while agreeing with Milo that it should be legal for a boy barely past the age of consent to engage in mutual masturbation with a much older man. You can argue that on various libertarian grounds.

But you cannot, I think, be a conservative while agreeing with Milo that such a thing is morally acceptable, let alone good for either person, or for anyone else around.

(I notice, by-the-way, that Milo is around age 32...roughly the age of the older men who solicited him when he was 14 or thereabouts. Let's hope his opinions on this matter aren't reflected in his current behavior.)

Secondly, because Milo is looking ragged. There are dark circles under his eyes. He is looking haunted and worse-for-wear. He may not implode...but then again, he may.

If he ever does, he needs friends from the morally-sane side of the universe to help him out and listen to him privately.

But they need to stop publicly endorsing him before that happens.

Because if he's caught in bed with a dead girl or (much more likely) a live boy, he will wreak havoc on the conservative cause, and they will have to abandon him and condemn him in a public and no-room-for-dispute kind of way. And then he'll have few or no morally sane friends left to help him avoid being suicidal (literally or figuratively).

So. Time to back away, without animus, pointing out the unfair editing of the video but stating that, apart from that, Milo's views on sexual morality aren't quite ours, even if we see eye-to-eye with him on freedom-of-speech and the fascistic nature of leftists.

Posted by: R.C. at February 20, 2017 09:56 PM (piMDU)

589 Milo is kind of like the Lenny Bruce of this era. Deliberately, hilariously outrageous, but the problem with all of the people who believe that there are no real boundaries, is that they're incapable of knowing when they cross some important ones.

Posted by: redbanzai at February 20, 2017 10:05 PM (FTXAT)

591 "Children below the age of consent can not give consent [...]"

That's slightly different than reality. Or it's a self-referential statement.

Our society has decided that any human under the age of X is not capable of giving consent to sexual activity.

I guess that I'm a hell of lot stranger than most, but I thought long and hard prior to puberty about how I wanted to act after puberty. (Insert "long and hard" joke here.) (Add "insert" joke here, while you're at it.)

It seems to me that early homosexual behavior has the potential drawbacks of a) venereal disease (including HIV) and b) emotional entanglements. It's not there are going to be children generated by that behavior.

I don't think that treating young humans as children until they are 26 is a good thing. I don't think that treating young humans as adults when they are 9 is a good thing.

I'll point out that some people think a child can decide they have the wrong gender at an absurdly low age. Maybe those people think that a 9 year old can bang a 40 year old. I dunno.

592 This crap is reminding me of the discretion confusion on the left.

It's simple.

Nobody has taken Gary Johnson's scalp by not being invited to speak at CPAC. The lack of speaking at CPAC scalps no one. Milo has been moved from the category of being invited to speak at CPAC to not being invited--by CPAC at their discretion.

If that doesn't pass your "logic filter", then I'm afraid logic runs a different direction for you than me.

As for how you can get the left to understand certain arguments--you can't even convince them that somebody who has never talked shunning trannies is not going to put trannies in camps!! The question of how you get the unhinged left to understand ANYTHING these days is a problem that doesn't necessarily have a solution.

And importing their "hypocrisy" Alinsky crap over here is a REAL great. fucking. idea.

Thanks for illustrating slippery slope. That we can popularize things on the basis that it's ***ONLY*** ***EVER*** about "consenting adults", and a stipulation that was SO IMPORTANT before, can be negotiated later.

And now we're saying that unknown to the evangelicals--who Trump thinks he couldn't have won without--there was this necessary deal with solidarity with subtlety around the previously strict "age of consent"--or be branded as a pitchfork brigade for making a decision that the consent renegotiation might be not the best conservative representation.

She was an Afghani teen who went to school (oh, the horror!) and encouraged other girls to do so.

She was shot in the head for it. She survived, and didn't back down from her stance. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for it.

She is now part of the international Left, which is allied with the very jihadis who shot her.

That doesn't diminish her basic message, that girls should try to live up to their potential. Well, okay; maybe it does diminish her message just a bit, since she is on some some level supporting sharia law.

Still, she's not saying that every girl who wants an education should survive getting shot in the head in order to earn that privilege. If she just absolutely 100% had her way in this matter, no other girl would have to go through that.

604 Milo has denied that he is a pedo, he has reminded us of the fact that he himself outed several pedos, and I am reading from several sources that this video editing to twist his words was a set up by the left in conjunction with some of the never trumper crowd. I agree that Milo has become a little risky and arrogant with his comments lately, and maybe pushed his wording a little too far thus making it easier for the left to engineer a fall for him.

May I remind all of you that conservatives, gamers and libertarians of the younger generation idolize Milo because he speaks truth to the face of powerful leftist individuals and industries. He spits their hypocrisy back at them. Do you all have any idea how isolated, persecuted and psychologically abused conservative or even moderate students are in college on a daily basis? If we allow OUR ENEMIES to turn US against Milo, we most likely again lose a big portion of badly needed younger voters for our side. We will reveal ourselves to the conservative/moderate milenials as hypocrites and weaklings.

There is a general failure to grasp how much the evangelical right--if that is what CPAC represents currently--owes to solidarity, based on the momentary, pragmatic strategic decision to support Trump, and how endless that the reverberations--even extending to a controversy that has little likelihood of affecting Trump's governance or power, and thus the particular decision made.

611 A question: can anyone talk about sexuality in teenagers in public without being called a pedophile? Seriously, is that topic now taboo upon penalty of being labeled a deviant? For those who aren't getting what I'm saying, let me be more blunt:

As Americans, are we capable of acknowledging that people under 18 can be, and often are, sexual beings with sexual urges?

The question seems absurd on its face, I know, because of all the advertising, movies, television, music, etc that regularly and routinely takes teenage "idols", as they're known, and sells them as a sexual commodity worldwide. But after the money isn't being made from the prostitution of children, are we all supposed to shut up and pretend that nobody under 18 has sex, thinks about sex, or - here it comes - WANTS sex? I mean, there are entire movies like American Pie dedicated to this very concept, and it's not even 20 years old yet.

Because in all of the "examples" shown, Milo demonstrates an unabashed - albeit unorthodox - comfort in discussing the sexuality of young males. Probably one reason is because - here comes another one - he was probably sexually active as a teenager himself. every example I heard was either a joke, or an observation. Nothing was an endorsement, condoning, or acceptance of pedophilia as good or right or justifiable; just that it happens, and he's explaining the mechanics. If that topic is so taboo that we will put a scarlet letter on anyone who is willing to discuss it like an adult, then the problem is with US, not with Milo.

as a factual matter, milo wasn't talking about pedophilia. he was talking about pederasty. pedophilia is an attraction to pre-pubescent children. like a 7 year old. milo was talking about relationships between teenagers and adults. the age of consent would seem to me to be a valid area for public debate.

Seems an awful lot like a way to distract from the elite's own pedophilia, like Anthony Weiner's and Denny Hastert's and Jon Podesta's.

619 A question: can anyone talk about sexuality in teenagers in public without being called a pedophile? Seriously, is that topic now taboo upon penalty of being labeled a deviant? For those who aren't getting what I'm saying, let me be more blunt:
---
CPAC did not claim Yiannopoulos was a pedophile they said he condoned it, and then that he failed to answer to ACU's satisfaction. How about not heaping slop upon slop? I think Milo's own dissembling hurt him a little on this.

Posted by: Axeman at February 20, 2017 11:33 PM (JhE5a)

620 I believe Milo when he stated that he is not a pedophile. This persecution against this man is another example of our enemies (the leftist progressive globalist anti western civilization cabal which includes the anti trumpers on the right) systematically trying to take down effective fighters on our side.

I wasn't going to buy Milos book. Now, if he publishes it, I will buy not one but several copies.

I am so angry and disgusted by these globalists' desperation to turn US into their pet plebes, that I have done the insane: Will not buy from amazon any more. Deleted all my lists on my account. Will let it sit there unused. Don't need it. Bezos can take his Washington compost and mostly made in china crap and stuff it up his ass. Not one more penny from me. This is one small way I can fight these aholes.


To quote Milo, "I am a western civilization supremacist". Starve the beasts. Lordy am I pissed off!

621 OK, let's say Milo was promoting pederasty.

Now, everyone who thinks that a howling Internet mob, egged on by the media, ruining every aspect of his life that they can touch is an appropriate way to respond to this kind of behavior, please raise your hand.

Posted by: West at February 20, 2017 11:42 PM (n0cAt)

622 I come at this from a completely different direction, having met a man and a woman (they don't know each other) who were each sexually abused beginning when they were VERY young, about 5 years old.

This experience to a young child, to use my own analogy, is like having his wires FRIED. Think of being a completely ignorant naive 5 year old boy, and having someone you know and are supposed to be able to trust, walking into your bedroom, putting... just imagine each and every movement and what you think you might feel, being in that naive unknowing state. One person viciously called it shock "therapy." It totally changes that child.

I don't know Milo's history. I do know from speaking with many abused men in order to learn more about this, that they feel immense shame, immense shame and guilt, from the abuse. I know that some of them end up with sexual fetishes or preferences - as Milo clearly has - as a result. Many times, men won't disclose this for the first time until they're in their 40s or 50s. One man I knew didn't disclose until he was about 60 years old. 60!

I've been listening to some of Milo's presentations and he has been edging closer and closer to telling about his abuse and TRYING VERY HARD to explain to people the consequences of abuse, as he tried on Bill Maher's show, but was shut down. It's very hard for an abuse survivor to talk about this, but he has been extraordinarily brave about it. Extraordinary. He's extraordinarily unusual in this. Amazing, really to watch him inch closer and closer to explaining to the gratefully uninitiated. It's a club I promise you don't want to join.

I don't really have time to write the book this requires, but perhaps it will suffice to say, the more we hear from abuse survivors - ALL THEY HAVE TO SAY- and not just the sanitized sounds we want to hear, the sooner we will start saving them from suicide and preventing it in the first place. But we are not open, we are quick to judge. I promise you, when you shame them more, they clam up and you will never know what's behind the mask.

I spent years talking with that man who had been raped at age 5 for some time. He had multiple personalities and he would switch personalities all the time, it was so aggravating. But I made it a point to be accepting, totally accepting, so he would tell me what he was thinking. He had a very successful business and he had employees to think about. I wanted him better because he deserved a good life.

One of his personalities wanted to be a girl so badly. The other two, one was the successful (hyper-busy) business man and the other was a frustrated teenager that despised the girl wannabe. He was a mess. But if I had shamed him, he would never have shared his inner conflicts with me, I wouldn't have learned, he wouldn't have had a confidante, and his therapy would probably still not be getting off the ground.

Instead, today, he has more or less fused his personalities and functions much better. He's no longer afraid of people standing near him, he's able to work better, he's able to understand he's only one person now. It's progress.

Milo is willing to explain all the wiring problems, if people won't shame him to exile. He's willing to do the self-sacrificing of explaining the effects of abuse to the unknowing population. This would be an immense service to humanity, because suffering would be more often prevented and afflicted children would be better understood by more people.

So, I would never criticize Milo for what he said or didn't say. His candor is entirely too valuable. He literally deserves a medal for bravery. I do care about what he DOES, but as far as I can see, he hasn't done a single thing wrong.

It took me 3 years of reading, talking to people, meeting people, to get a handle on this, because my friend was too ashamed, too afraid and too triggered to explain it all to me. He dropped bread crumbs. IT was so frustrating.

My entrance to this alternate universe has really changed my view on so much. And it is an alternate universe where up is down, left is right, normal is abnormal. You cannot judge it by your standards if you wish to understand those suffering. You must meet them on their terms or accomplish nothing.

We have so many young people suffering.... I'm thankful to Milo for trying to inform we normals about the crazy world all around us that we don't even know is there.

Finally, I love Ace's point: this instantaneous let's destroy someone before we can think for 2 minutes, is corrosive. And, you know, the left loves Lena Dunham, ADMITTED child molester. Her parents must have been a piece of work. The left is thrilled to destroy Milo, our very effective gladiator.

Posted by: BillR at February 21, 2017 06:30 AM (iyXZR)

640 The bottom line is, this is ridiculous bullshit.

There is only one intent that matters - that of the speaker. If you can clearly, unambiguously, without question state that Milo's intent in any of his past statements was to forgive or endorse pedophilia, then 1) you're a helluva lot smarter than most, and 2) you're also full of shit.

Again, there is only one person whose opinion matters - Milo's. And considering his entire "thing" is about free speech, the idea that anyone on the right is buying this nonsense, specifically packaged to be the very poison pill "free speech" issue that Milo's own side would attack him for is UNFORGIVABLE. Beyond the context of what he said, the fact that you're falling for their shit is unfathomable. Whistling past the graveyard, much ?

I mean, you do realize, the only speech that needs protecting is "unpopular speech", right ? That there is no need to be vigilant about free speech when it only applies to people that are going to unequivocally say "pedophilia is bad" and "any sex between anyone below the age of consent is bad, wrong, and illegal" ?

And to the absolute fool who thinks that being invited to CPAC and then publically UN-invited isn't "scalp hunting", you are ridiculously naive. Like someone who is too pathetically weak and cowardly to admit that going along with the scalp hunting left is, in fact, SCALP HUNTING itself.

And for anyone talking about "Alinsky tactics" on this side, are you kidding me ? This is "make them live up to their own standards" 101, as well as attacking along the front of "the right hates gays" as well. I'm just shocked at how many of you are either too dumb to realize it, or just showing your true colors.

I don't really take issue with Ace's take on this, except to say I'm a bit disappointed that he isn't on the exact same page as I am. That is not to say, defense of Milo, for only being on the same side, but based on both principle and protecting against falling for the age old bullshit from the left.

It will be interesting to see if that sticks since he sold a shit ton of pre-orders on Amazon. I see their page for the book is gone, but in my "orders" page it's still there. I guess if the publisher has said they won't publish, Amazon can't exactly have a page to sell it, but I'm curious WTF they're going to do about existing orders. Not sure what they'd be waiting for as an milestone to tell them to refund all the pre-orders.

I'd bet that some publisher out there is willing to make money and not be pussies in the face of the fascist left.

Thanks for making my point for me. Dipshit. Milo did not do anything to endanger any kids anywhere. BTW, maybe you missed the irony of using the leftist motto, "It's for the children".

And while I'm on it, there is no such thing as "normalizing" such behaviors as pedophilia or rape. I mean, you do realize you're throwing down with the idiotic lefty trope about "rape culture", don't you ?

There are pedophiles and rapists, and there is everyone else. Nobody that isn't in the first group is going to join because Milo said something you think "normalizes" immoral behavior. Give your fellow humans a little credit. The only way that gets used is by an existing scum trying to deflect blame for their own behavior. And if you would dismiss that excuse out of hand - as you should - then the idea that there is any merit to the excuse is similarly bullshit.

Posted by: deadrody at February 21, 2017 06:44 AM (vJOFB)

643 I have listened to the Milo tape and IMO, he was defending the 13 year old's ability to acknowledge his own gayness but it came off as Milo defending the adults feelings towards the 13 y.o... I believe in the cross talk, Milo missed the comments that ultimately got him in trouble and would have clarified it had he caught it. That said, I was never a fan of CPAC asking him to speak for many reasons. Some in his favor, others not.

645 The AXS TV channel has a long form interview of Carly Simon by William Shatner. I saw it on demand via Sling TV. This is Carly Simon as in Simon & Schuster, who just canceled Milo's book.

Carly Simon says, and I'm using her language, that she had an affair with a 16 year old boy when she was 8 or 10 years old (I forget which). She spoke of it fondly and at some length.

647 One thing I'm particularly good at is unpacking other people's "package deals".

We heard the left's package deal that anybody who voted for Obama in 2008 didn't really vote for him, unless they voted for him in 2012--and then a variation of that unless you voted for Hillary 2016. If you have changed your mind after any point of giving a black president the BoD, then you didn't really vote for Obama in 2008--despite the fact that .... you know ... you did.

We all thought that was stupid. It's stupid to adopt the momentum-driven "package deal" mentality of the left.

Milo is not Trump, Trump is not Milo. Milo's book deal is not a key element in Trump's opportunity and capacity to wield actual executive power and right the ship. Nor is his position at Breitbart--both of which I'm pro on his keeping.

The Conservative Political Action Convention is not similar to the brands of "Stanford" or "Berkeley" which is not supposed to be representative of a single view--especially political, while CPAC obviously is a forum for conservative politics, as defined by the people who fund the convention. The CPAC disinvite =/= book deal =/= Breitbart job.

I mean really, if the campus conservatives at Berkeley had invited Milo to talk about campus issues--and Milo said, "You know what, I've been silent on how much I love black dicks for too long--that you'll have to understand I'm going to do 20 minutes on black dicks." And the conservatives decided nah, we don't think we want that package deal--who's stupid enough to say a disinvite is "censorship"? They didn't invite Huckabee--are we going to get lib-level stupid and say that was "censorship"? Or the conservatives that shut down the Huckabee non-speech are just as bad as those who burned crap and broke windows and forced an emergency evacuation of the speaker?

Does it really get that dumb for the right?

I mean, don't we hate the behavior of the left because they try to force stupid cant on us--simply because it's politically expedient: "Blow jobs aren't sex. So Bill Clinton did not have sex in the Oval Office, liars!"

"When they say it's not about the sex (but the perjury) it's about the sex."

"Any reasonable man would perjure themselves about sex."

648 To Catch a Predator owes a lot of people apologies for trying to catch people who say that they were only tempted to have sex with young teens (and didn't follow through--even saying that they would never actually do it, you know).

649 If God has a problem with Milo, God and Milo will work it out. What Milo did when, where and with whom and how he felt about it afterwards is completely irrelevant. It has no effect on my life whatsoever. It has no effect on yours either.

What does have an effect on our lives is the right to free speech. This is clearly an effort to silence Milo. There is no difference between this effort and the throwing of bricks at peaceable assemblers at Berkeley. We should all see this for what it is and act accordingly.

654 In comment #645 above I misstated some facts. The interview with Carly Simon was by Dan Rather not Bill Shatner. It's hard for me to tell the two apart. The interview is no longer available on demand, sudddenly. But it is on iTunes for $3. I downloaded it and watched it again, and:

* Carly Simon was 7 or 8, not 8 or 10, as I previously asserted, when she began having sexual relations with a 16 year old boy.

* Carly Simon did not use the term "affair" as I asserted. But their relationship went on for 2 emotionally charged years, during which Carly had her heart broken because he'd finish with her and go prowling after her older sister.

* The phrase "Boys in the Trees" came up in the interview and you'll never listen to "You Belong to Me" the same way again after listening to this interview.

* The essence of what I asserted is absolutely correct and even more appalling than what I asserted.

I recommend buying the interview on iTunes. It's remarkable for more than this. Carly Simon is a remarkably complex and intelligent person and I'm going to go listen to more than "You're So Vain."

My wife, who watched the interview with me initially, and has been in love with Carly since 9th grade, told me I was crazy to say that she'd said that stuff in the interview because she watched it with me and it didn't happen. It's going to take me a while to recover from being proven right, but with enough unexpected gifts and filling the dishwasher, I'll get back in her good graces. Chicks, man.
