 ➜ UPDATE:  Milo has quit Breitbart – before they could fire him! Details here.

Late yesterday, two video clips containing impolitic comments by racist provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos – one about sex with young boys, another in which he cracks wise about a sexual encounter he allegedly had with a Catholic priest as a child – surfaced. Here’s one of them:


Today, the pigeons came home to roost.

CPAC rescinded its invitation for Yiannopoulos to speak at their annual convention:

“I haven’t heard any indication that they are reconsidering,” Yiannopoulos told CNNMoney early Monday afternoon.

That changed less than an hour later, with the sponsor of the conference, the American Conservative Union, announcing that it had rescinded Yiannopoulos’ invitation. …

“We continue to believe that CPAC is a constructive forum for controversies and disagreements among conservatives, however there is no disagreement among our attendees on the evils of sexual abuse of children,” ACU president Matt Schlapp said in a statement.

A couple of hours later, his publisher cancelled his book:

Simon & Schuster’s imprint, Threshold Editions, sought to publish the Yiannopoulos’ memoirs. But Yiannopoulos seems to have crossed a line for the publisher, after they stood by their decision to give the controversial columnist a platform in their catalgue for two months.

​”After careful consideration, [Simon & Schuster] and its [Threshold Editions] have cancelled publication of Dangerous by Milo Yiannopoulos,” tweeted Simon & Schuster spokesperson Adam Rothberg.

And he may have hit the trifecta – he faces being cashiered by Breitbart Inc.
