Milo Yiannopoulos says Australia is the one last remaining bastion of free speech as he announces he is writing a book about the country.
The alt-right commentator is preparing to kick off a nationwide tour with controversial right wing speaker Ann Coulter in November.
Mr Yiannopoulos said his book, entitled Australia You’re My Only Hope, which is his take on the nation’s state of affairs will implore Australians to defend free speech.
“It’s my last chance, my last ditch effort to persuade Australians to stand up against the cancers of public life that have so utterly ruined the public square in Europe and in America,” he told Sky News last night.
“Australia is the one last remaining bastion of free speech where people can actually crack a joke and not get fired.”
Mr Yiannopoulos said the “diseases and cancers and toxins” of feminism, free speech and political correctness were poisoning Australia.
“Whether it is this ridiculously obsequiousness about welcome to country, whether it is the free speech crisis on campuses, this stuff seems to be coming to a head in Australia and if anything since my last tour it appears to be getting worse not better.”
