S.E. Cupp: why'd they build Milo up to begin with?
« on: February 22, 2017, 05:50:38 AM »
Milo Yiannapolis has lost a book deal and is definitely fired by Brietbart after the pervert said he favored sex between 13-year-old boys and adult men. CPAC promptly disinvited him, and now the 400-pound elephant in the GOP barn is --- what did they see in this sickening piece of trash to begin with?

Here's S.E. Cupp's take on the matter.

Quote
  But there’s a difference between college campuses, late-night talk shows and a conservative conference meant to highlight conservative values. Milo wasn’t invited to CPAC to debate conservatives. His invitation elevated, even celebrated, a vile strain of the far right that conservatives should not promote under their own banner.

Conservatives should defend free speech — but we must not amplify it when it’s blatantly grotesque.

A seat at Bill Maher’s table is defensible; a seat in the White House, where Breitbart’s CEO advises the President, is not. Yet until pedophilia came up, Yiannopoulos’ ugly ideas were given an imprimatur by CPAC’s American Conservative Union and other conservative groups.

Now, Yiannopoulos resigning from Breitbart is a little like David Duke resigning from the KKK: neither are made clean by the breakup; both will likely continue to be awful.

Conservatives need to be twice as diligent about who they allow to wear their namesake, and condemn bad speech, even as they defend free speech.

Not only does the movement defend bad speech, it ignores bad behavior, which is why McCain was always given a pass in the past as was the GOP for pretending to support Conservative ideals.
It's time to purge the movement, stop trying to build our numbers by being inclusive and watering down the meaning of Conservative.
We own it, it belongs to those that believe the Founders knew what they were doing, that change comes slow and not as a social experiment.

I think I would put it slightly different.  "Always defend free speech - always.  But, be prepared to condemn bad ideas by using good ideas."

Agree and debate the Hell out of it when it occurs. No liberal idea can hold water to Conservative ideals.
