Maybe Jerry Sandusky Can Speak Instead
CPAC, which has been screaming for as long as we cats can remember about how evil lefties censor fine, upstanding patriots they don't agree with, has just done a little censoring of its own.
Yep, the fearless defenders of free speech today decided that right-right-wing Internet terrorist and all-around vomit-inducer Milo Yiannopoulos is not, repeat, not welcome as a speaker at their annual Nazi confab this week. This is pretty funny, considering that CPAC chair Matt Schlapp was vigorously sticking up for the little creep until — well, until he wasn't. "First amendment is dead on campus," he tweeted just yesterday to Jonah Goldberg. "Conservatives should fight back. As radioactive as Milo is, he is fighting back."
Gosh! What happened to all that "fighting back," Matt? What a difference a day makes. The CPAC board met this afternoon and decided that while racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny and online bullying are still just fine, endorsing gay sex with underage boys is verboten. (Oh, and good news, folks — Simon & Schuster finally canceled their Milo book deal, too. Hooray!)
Since CPAC will no longer stick by their man, we cats will keep urging colleges and universities (and yes, you, Bill Maher) to stop giving this disgusting turdball a platform to spew his venom and hate. Meanwhile, we celebrate a small victory for decency in America, even though we're annoyed that in the age of Drumpf we have to endure the existence of such protozoan intellects. We cats HISS and PURR at the same time.
