Milo Yiannopoulos banned from entering Australia following Christchurch shooting comments

Milo Yiannopoulos banned from entering Australia following Christchurch shooting comments, by the ABC.

“Yiannopoulos’s comments on social media regarding the Christchurch terror attack are appalling and foment hatred and division,” [Immigration Minister David Coleman] said. …

Yiannopoulos had been planning to “come roaring back in 2019” after what he said were a miserable past few years in which he had been de-platformed, censored and announced he was broke.

“I am one of the most censored and most lied-about people in the world,” he said.

“Even my fans sometimes believe things about me that aren’t true, because journalists lie more about me than perhaps anyone else in America.”

So what did Milo say that got him banned? The ABC doesn’t even say. Presumably they don’t want you to know.

They are happy enough to tell us that Milo thinks Islam is barbaric but not that he rejects violence. Why withhold one and not the other?

In a Facebook post overnight, Mr Yiannopoulos said [Candace] Owens had “nothing to do with what happened” in New Zealand and appeared to blame the left for the deadly assault.

“People aren’t radicalised by their own side. They get pushed to the far-right by the left, not by others on the right,” Mr Yiannopoulos wrote in a post that has since been shared widely.

“Attacks like this happen because the establishment panders to and mollycoddles extremist leftism and barbaric, alien religious cultures. Not when someone dares to point it out.”

Mr Yiannopoulos noted in the post that he rejected political violence.

The left calls non-left people worse than that every day. If you disagree with their favourite scientific theory you may be likened to a paedophile, asbestos company, or Nazi killer.

I would remind readers that Milo is gay. Some cultures judge that as barbaric.
