Milo Yiannopoulos recently was a guest on Real Time with Bill Maher. Maher and Milo joked around with each other and Maher even called Milo a “young Christopher Hitchens.” Shortly after the show, a video surfaced of Milo defending pedophilia. Milo lost a book deal, his CPAC invitation, and his job at Breitbart. Despite Maher have absolutely nothing to do with this, he actually took the credit for Milo’s downfall.
It’s particularly maddening that Maher would take credit for Milo’s downfall because he previously defended pedophilia in a very similar way as you can see in the video below. Maher defends a sexual relationship between a 12-year old boy and a 35 year-old woman. Later on in the show, he argues that a woman cannot rape a man.
As liberals, we can’t pick and choose when we are bothered when people defend child rape. Both Milo and Maher made indefensible comments. We’ll see if this has any impact on Maher, but we have seen that you can still become president after bragging about sexual assault so I won’t hold my breath.
