Censors Launch Personal Attack on Free Speech Activist
On Sunday, Milo Yiannopoulos was the target of a vicious political attack designed to personally destroy him. Reagan Battalion, a site that belongs to "StopDonaldTrumpPAC" and endorsed failed #NeverTrump "candidate" and ex-CIA operative Evan McMullin, started claiming that Milo advocates for pedophilia.
Anyone who's heard Milo speak would know that's false. Here's his rebuttal in his own words, and a follow-up. I believe he will have a press conference today as well.
But the fallout was swift as this #FakeNews accusation was taken up, not just by the Left, but by the die-hard #NeverTrump right. In an act of unexamined irony, CPAC, which had just invited him to be a keynote speaker to support free speech, disinvited him.
Simon & Schuster cancelled his book.
In the meantime, he is still published as part of the Forbidden Thoughts anthology.
