Here is the uncut 5 minute video of Milo Yiannopoulos advocating for Pederasty involving “13 Year old” and “older men.” HIS WORDS.
And you admire him for his ‘honesty’ and ‘forthrightness’? You’re as disgusting as he is if you admire him for his deviance.
An Englishman, a Frenchman and an American man walk into a bar and make whatever jokes they want because – have you heard? – political correctness is dead. Donald Trump and Brexit have sent it to its grave. You can say whatever you like now, offend whoever you like!
Well, not quite.
From the gender-neutral ashes of political correctness a new sort of PC culture has risen. You could call it populist correctness: a virulent policing of language and stifling of debate that is rapidly and perniciously insinuating itself into daily life in Trump’s America and Brexit Britain.
Populist correctness is the smearing and silencing of points of view by labelling them “elitist” – and therefore at odds with the will of the people and the good of the country. Take, for example, the rhetoric around “remoaners”, which can be summed up as “the people have spoken, so the rest of you should shut up”. Opposing Brexit, Britain’s tabloids tell us almost daily, is unpatriotic and undemocratic. See, for example, front-page headlines such as: “Damn the unpatriotic Bremoaners and their plot to subvert the will of the British people” and “Time to silence Brexit whingers. Silencing opposing views would normally be seen as incompatible with the freedom of speech conservatives are supposed to hold so dear.
But the cunning thing about populist correctness is the way it dresses dogma up as democracy, invoking a majority consensus of opinion it doesn’t actually command. Theresa May, for example, recently warned MPs not to stand in the way of Brexit, stating: “Now is not the time to obstruct the democratically expressed wishes of the British people.” Strictly speaking, of course, Brexit wasn’t the will of the people. About 17.4 million people voted leave; 16.1 million voted remain; 12.9 million didn’t vote. The wishes of the British people are complicated. The same goes for the US, where almost 3 million more Americans voted for Clinton than for Trump. But populist correctness doesn’t bother itself with inconvenient details. Rather it carves the country up into a neat dichotomy of ordinary people versus the elite.

Hotel chain to replace Gideon Bibles with Dawkins’ ‘God Delusion’
According to a recently-leaked company memo, all 200+ locations of mid-range hotel chain StayzInn, will be removing their Gideon Bibles at the end of the month and will replace them with copies of Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion.
“People have come to expect a lot from us: a friendly smile, clean towels, and one of those little machines where you can just pour in the batter and out comes three perfectly formed pancakes,” said the memo. “Now, they can also enjoy a few chapters of dogmatic atheism just before they hit the hay.”
The memo said that company employees could take home any un-needed Bibles they want, so long as just “skip to the good parts.”
“You can believe whatever you want as an employee of StayzInn, provided that you believe in a material universe of nothing more than stained bed sheets and moldy shower curtains,” said the memo.
The hard-cover editions of The God Delusion are gold-embossed and have been lovingly donated in the memory of the late Christopher Hitchens. The special edition book feature Richard Dawkins’ words in red, which is every single word, and come attached with lovely ribbon bookmarks to keep track of just where in the ‘Flying Spaghetti Monster’ analogy you left off.
The memo also directed hotel managers to lock out any television program other than any stuff Neil deGrasse Tyson is in.

It is not permissible for confessing Christians in the United States today to sit back and say nothing in the face of intimations of the rise of a nationalist-racialist ideology, or of a species of political religion under which it might be said that to oppose the president is to oppose God.
It is not permissible for confessing Christians in the United States to be silent when Jews are receiving bomb threats, or when swastikas are spray-painted in public places, or when anti-Jewish rhetoric is increasing even in slight tor scattered ways, or to write such things off as the insignificant doings of a few fringe nuts, especially when our president has rudely refused to hear and respond appropriately to a question about these threats.
It is not permissible for a Christian in the United States today to participate in or condone any American-Christian movement that drapes the Stars and Stripes over the cross or pronounces a different or higher benediction upon our nation than upon any and every other nation of the world.
