The Infuriating Hypocrisy

In the past three days, Milo has lost
  • A speaking slot at CPAC
  • A lucrative book deal
  • His position as Tech Editor at Breitbart
If you read the media reports you'll hear that Milo advocates pedophila. If you have a brain and look at what really happened you'll learn that Milo has been fiercely anti-pedophilia, and his comments were meant to suggest that he was and others are capable of giving consent at ages as young as 13. He doesn't actually advocate that consent ages be lowered, and is mostly engaged in rationalizing his own life's circumstances. He is of course completely wrong on the subject. Consent laws apply because it is believed that children below a certain age aren't wise enough to make those decisions that can have life-long consequences, and Milo's own eccentric sexuality is merely case in point as to what can happen when a child's innocence is damaged by an adult. While Milo's stances are troubling, he is engaging in rational debate that is largely muddied by his victimization as a child.

Nevertheless, he has been brutally hounded by the media, liberals, and even the Never Trump pseudo conservatives, who are doing everything possible to destroy his career and reputation. Let's look at some other personas they adore.
  • Sarah Silverman joked about pedophila on Twitter.
    Allowed to speak at Democrat National Convention and maintain lucrative acting career.
  • Lena Dunhan described in a book how she repeatedly sexually molested her toddler sister.
    Allowed to maintain book deal, allowed to speak at Democratic National Convention with standing ovation, given her own show on HBO.
  • George Takei advocated that gay sex with a 13-year-old is okay as long as the boy is attracted to the man.
    Cult following among the left, keeps lucrative role as Taco Bell persona.
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a judicial opinion advocated that consent ages be lowered to 12.
    Promoted to Supreme Court; adored by liberals.
  • Roman Polanski is a convicted child rapist.
    Received standing ovation from Hollywood elites at Oscars.
  • Bill Clinton flew routinely on convicted child sex offender Jeffery Epstein's "Lolita Express", even shaking off his own Secret Service detail to do so. It is widely believed that those flights included sex with children.
    Revered by the left. Given prominent speaking slot at Democratic National Convention. Chosen to return to the White House as First Gentleman.
  • Over 1500 sex offenders and human traffickers arrested in Trump's first month. Dozens of victims saved.
    Ignored by the media.
  • In a roast of Rod Reiner, Al Franken did an extended bit joking about anally raping his infant son.
    Serves as US Senator. Adored by the left.
  • Salon ran numerous articles by self-confessed pedophile Todd Nickerson which attempted to normalize pedophilia with titles such as, "I'm a Pedophile, Not a Monster." These articles had been condemned by Milo.
    Salon quietly deletes all trace of these articles from their site so they can pile on against Milo.
  • Bill Maher defended a 35-year-old woman who had sex with a 12-year-old boy, asking, "How can you rape a man?" (Implying a 12-year-old boy can give consent.) He also stated that the only crime committed was they didn't make a video. Yes Maher, who is taking credit for helping bring down Milo the pedophile, responded to the statutory rape of child by lamenting that they produced no child porn.
    Host of high-profile HBO show. Highly respected by the left.
  • Cenk Uyghur approves of sex between a 15-year-old and a 29-year-old.
    Still the host of Young Turks, a favorite show of the far left.
  • Hillary Clinton defended a child rapist by stating the 12-year-old victim was attracted to older men, insinuating the crime was some degree of consent.
    Democratic Presidential nominee.
I mean this is just absurd. This is all upside down. The left calls conservatives that threaten them pedophiles to ruin their careers, while at the same time boosting the careers of actual pedophiles, or those whose comments were far worse than Milo's.

As always the most infuriating aspect of all this is that so many people are completely sold on a clearly bogus narrative and hit job. These people are walking around saying 2 + 2 = 5 and think you're the one who's crazy for thinking otherwise. If humanity is defined by its ability to reason and seek truth, then we are in a very troubling situation, as irrationality is highly normalized and encouraged. Appeals to emotion absolutely dominate our supposedly civilized society.
