Conservatives' Shame: Milo Is the Love Child of Donald Trump and Ann Coulter

The Trump-Bannon alt-right and Republican conservative groups were perfectly willing to defend Milo Yiannopoulos' mysogynist, racist, and bigoted rants in the name of "free speech," but he went too far for them, thus exposing their limited ethics and morality. --JP


"Milo Yiannopoulos is a passionate supporter of Donald Trump and rose to fame as an editor at the right-wing website Breitbart. His extreme views on feminism and Islam made him a darling of the American alt-right - a loose collection of anti-immigration, anti-political correctness conservatives including many white nationalists. Although Yiannopoulos has consistently said he is not a member of the movement, in March 2016 he co-wrote a much-cited defence of the alt-right. But now he appears to have crossed a line with his views after videos surfaced in which he appeared to condone paedophilia, and some of his former allies have turned against him." --BBC
