In recent months, perhaps nobody has provoked more controversy on college campuses throughout the country than Milo Yiannopoulos. The outspoken editor for Breitbart News has made a habit out of going across the country and provoking significant protests.
Many, especially on the political left, have begun to routinely block Milo from being allowed to have a platform to speak. Although much of what he states is certainly questionable, the movement to not allow him to voice his opinion has become increasingly concentrated.
For example, after Bill Maher announced he would be hosting Yiannopoulos on his show, scheduled panelist Jeremy Scahill backed out of his appearance. Scahill reasoned that the appearance “will provide Yiannopoulos with a large, important platform to openly advocate his racist, anti-immigrant campaign.” Interestingly, Milo is an immigrant himself and is not an American citizen.
On the panel on “Real Time With Bill Maher,” there certainly were a number of interesting exchanges. Watch the full video below and let HYPELINE News know what you think in the comments!
