Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
I haven’t been following the news lately, I’ve been focusing on lots of other things like science, art, and entertainment. So it’s great to see when issues are always covered everytime I check back in on politics. Take for example the latest big story that’s got a lot of people enraged.
Milo Yiannopoulos recently resigned from Breitbart due to an over reaction by the left, to statements he made while appearing on a podcast in January of 2016.
A little bit of backstory on this. Milo appeared on a podcast by the Drunken Peasants. The topic was about liberals, religion, racism, social programming, homosexuality, and terrorism. The video is 2 hours and 47 minutes long but a shorter clip exists on Twitter.

This arbitrary and oppressive idea of consent, which totally destroys you know, uhm, the understanding that many of us have the complexities and subleties and complicated nature of many relationships. you know people are messy and complex, and actually in the homosexual world particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men, the sort of coming of age relationships. The relationships in which those older men had helped those young boys to discover who they are, and give them security and safety and provide them with love and uh uhm and a reliable, and a sort of a rock where they can’t speak to their parents.
A lot of people took to twitter calling him a pedo, molester, etc. You know, the usual orgy of indignation that Twitter was purposely built for. To be fair to Milo, he was explaining his own troubled childhood, and just a few seconds before Milo’s part above, he was being mocked by one of the show’s speakers.
Milo has responded to the media’s attacks by writing on Facebook:
A note for idiots (UPDATED):
I do not support pedophilia. Period. It is a vile and disgusting crime, perhaps the very worst. There are selectively edited videos doing the rounds, as part of a co-ordinated effort to discredit me from establishment Republicans, that suggest I am soft on the subject.
If it somehow comes across (through my own sloppy phrasing or through deceptive editing) that I meant any of the ugly things alleged, let me set the record straight: I am completely disgusted by the abuse of children.
The r/enoughtrumpspam subreddit, which is an anti-Trump forum, celebrated Milo’s resignation. Some guy even posted a picture of a MAGA hat claiming that it is a symbol for pedos.
But less than half a day had passed before other stories emerged! This is what I call irony.
Extremist and vocal Trump critic Bill Maher, outed for defending Debra Lafave. In the world of Hillary Clinton, this guy is viewed as a senior leader.
George Takei. Another vocal critic of Trump. Some would argue that he’s mildy senile.
Anyways, readers asked: where do you get all your material. And the answer is, the material generates itself.
