This year’s CPAC keynote speaker advocates for hate speech, bigotry, sexual assault, and pedophilia. Yes, really.
*Update: After these videos came to light there was major backlash on Monday. Because of the pressure CPAC now says they’re rescinding the offer. Win! But the fact that they gave this POS the keynote spot to begin with shows where the GOP really is right now.
The annual meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this year will feature the controversial Breitbart editor, Milo Yiannopoulos. Yiannopoulos will get the most stage time this year as the keynote speaker at the event which runs from Feb. 22-25 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center outside of Washington, D.C.
All of the speeches will air live on C-SPAN.
According to the Hollywood Reporter and Politico, Yiannopoulos’ CPAC presentation will focus on his “experiences in America battling feminists, Black Lives Matter, the media, professors and the entertainment industry.”
Yiannopoulos is a gay right-wing extremist…and complete nut job….who works for Breitbart News. He has recently been in the spotlight after being banned from Twitter for racism and hate speech directed at SNL’s Leslie Jones. He also has recently been on a college speaking tour where he has been met with major student protests, including some that turned violent.
CPAC chairman Matt Schlapp said he chose Yiannopouls to be the keynote speaker because of those protests.
“An epidemic of speech suppression has taken over college campuses,” said Schlapp. “Milo has exposed their liberal thuggery and we think free speech includes hearing Milo’s important perspective.”
CPAC has had its share of wing-nut speakers over the years but this guy is particularly deplorable. He advocates for hate speech, bigotry, sexual assault, and pedophilia, among his other disgusting views.
In this video Yiannopoulos is talking about benefits of older adult men having affairs with 12 and 13-year-old boys on the Drunken Peasants podcast in January.
🚨 Breaking: We obtained the #CPAC2017 Milo Yiannopoulos introductory video.
This is a must watch!

And in this one he’s claiming that the sexual assault and rape culture on college campuses is just a conspiracy theory on a local news channel in November.
And more on pedophilia.
