Just one hour after alt-Right, and racist, Milo Yiannopoulos was confirmed as a key note speaker at the 2017 annual gathering of conservatives, or CPAC, video surfaced from Yiannopoulos’s past where he makes a bold statement supporting certain types of pedophilia.
Yiannopoulos is more than well known for his opinions about different races and religions, especially the Jewish community but this would be the first time he showed his support for sexual abuse. Yiannopoulos stated:
“In the homosexual world, particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men — the sort of ‘coming of age’ relationship — those relationships in which those older men help those young boys discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable, sort of rock, where they can’t speak to their parents.”
During this conversation Yiannopoulos talks about children going after their teachers, and how the teachers are the victims in it all, but that the kid’s lose everything as well. The commentator then speaks up and compares it to “molestation by a priest.” Yiannopoulos then replies:
“But you know what? I’m grateful for Father Michael. I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him”
But that wasn’t the last of the pedophilia discussion with Yiannopoulos. In 2015 he sat in with comedian Joe Rogan where they talked about Father Michael. Yiannopoulos attempted to normalize pedophilia by asking:
“So you’re saying you’ve never seen a 15-year-old girl, at any point in your life, that you thought was hot?”
Rogan quickly replied:
“Yeah, when I was 15!”
The conversation then continued and Rogan told Yiannopoulos that Father Michael was a terrible person and that he had molested Yiannopoulos. He wasn’t having it though and responded:
“It wasn’t molestation.”
Not only is this type of rhetoric disgusting on many levels, but with his obviously deep seeded hate towards many different groups of people, it is also alarming. If this man is one of the leaders of the most controversial political group in the U.S., and he believes pedophilia is not all bad, what is he doing behind closed doors.
Not only are we allowing this man to infiltrate the media and the conservative party, we are allowing him to spew his disgusting and troubling words for anyone, young and old, to be molded by. This man should not be any type of leader to anyone, much less be speaking at public gatherings.

Yiannopoulos responded on Facebook, and even though these videos speak for themselves, he denies all the allegations the media is making.
