It was reported yesterday, that Breitbart senior editor, MILO, has been confirmed as the keynote speaker at the upcoming CPAC, much to the leftists dismay.
MILO has been at the center of free speech issues lately, with several collages throwing violent riots, led by socialist student protestors. Most recently MILO was the center of attention at the violent Berkley riots, where he was taken off the bill after students smashed windows and destroyed their campus.
CPAC has reportedly picked MILO based on these events. Due to the backlash he receives, he has a unique viewpoint. Breitbart reports, “the invitation is further confirmation that MILO is now the leading free speech advocate in America’s conservative movement.”
However, most leftists, just like the ones are Berkley, have taken to social media to express their outrage, Breitbart reports:
Josh Hammer, a columnist for the Resurgent and Daily Wire, described the decision as an “utter disgrace,” adding that he would rather “thirds at the buffet line behind Lena Dunham and Rosie O’Donnell than watch Milo Yiannopoulos give [his] keynote address.”
Leftists and establishment conservatives were not happy with the announcement. Conservative columnist Jonah Goldberg, editor of the National Review, an establishment publication that strongly opposed Donald Trump’s campaign for the Republican nomination in 2015 and 2016, said the announcement was “sad and disappointing.”
Jonathan Cook, the public relations representatives for Conservatives for Environmental Reform, confirmed he definitely wouldn’t be attending the conference owing to his belief that CPAC is now “embracing the alt-right.”
Weekend editor at The Daily Beast Scott Bixby claimed the speech showed that CPAC is “fine with [inviting] queer conservatives,” but so long as they are “neo-fascists.”
