Milo Yiannopoulos – the champion of racists, sexists, and aggressively disgruntled slackers across the Western world – left his post at Breitbart in a particularly obvious “jumped before he was pushed” move after a podcast of one of his talks was brought to the public eye with a revelation so startling that even his most hardcore neo-Nazi followers were forced to admit that he’d gone too far with his shock tactics.

The baby-faced provocateur who was brought to Breitbart by Steve Bannon as a senior editor has also lost out on a lucrative book deal and a major speaking appointment in light of the allegations. So what exactly is he stood accused of? Well, last year he spoke on a podcast for The Drunken Peasant in which he addressed a number of issues he views as important to society and politics, but among the usual charisma of his works was a dark and unhappy truth: Milo’s belief that it is perfectly ok for 13-year-olds to be engaging in full sexual relationships with fully-grown adults more than double their age.
That’s right, the undisputed war-general of the “it’s PC gone mad!!!!” brigade, the people who have so often claimed that giving basic human rights to gay and transsexual people will somehow lead to support for paedophilia, believes that there are cases where paedophilia is not just acceptable but actually beneficial for the child in question.
In the immediate aftermath of the podcast’s bitter ingredients being brought to light it is reported by another of the senior editors at Breitbart that “at least half a dozen” employees had threatened to quit if Yiannopoulos was kept on at the company, but before the execs could come to a decision he had claimed martyrdom and tendered his own resignation. So noble.
Yiannopoulos does of course attempt to shrug off these allegations, claiming them to have been some form of comedy (despite the rest of the podcast clearly not being so and his own admission that he doesn’t remember making the comments) and stating that the entire affair is nothing more than a pre-planned “political witch-hunt”.
Perhaps so, Milo, but if the child-abusing pointy hat and broomstick fit…
Do you think these views are excusable for a public figure? Or for anyone in the modern age?
