The Reagan Battalion is a collection of mostly #NeverTrump websites.
Several of the organizations openly supported the Hillary Clinton campaign and worked to defeat Donald Trump.
On Saturday CPAC announced Milo Yiannopolous would be speaking at CPAC 2017.
On Sunday the #NeverTrump Reagan Battalion released very sordid audio of Milo Yiannopolous discussing sex and 13 year-olds.
(For the record– Reagan Battalion blocked The Gateway Pundit from reading their tweets.)
Never trust a #NeverTrumper.
This is a disgusting story all the way around.
New York Magazine reported:
The Reagan Battalion, a conservative blog, tweeted out a video of Yiannopoulos making anti-Semitic remarks and railing against the “arbitrary and oppressive idea of consent.” First he claims that when female teachers have sex with their male students, “the boy is the predator in that situation.” He continues:
In the homosexual world particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men the sort of coming of age relationships relationships in which those older men have helped those young boys to discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable — and sort of a rock where they can’t speak to their parents.
When a voice off camera says that sounds like “priest molestation,” Yiannopoulos shoots back: “And do you know what? I’m grateful for Father Michael. I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him.”
Later The Reagan Battalion posted a longer, unedited clip, and linked to the source: an episode of the Drunken Peasants podcast uploaded to YouTube on January 4, 2016. After one of the cohosts defends age of consent laws, using 13-year-old boys an example, Yiannopoulos responds:
The law is probably about right, that’s probably roughly the right age, I think it’s probably about okay, but there are certainly people who are capable of giving consent at a younger age. I certainly consider myself to be one of them.
When he’a accused of defending pedophilia, Yiannopoulos says the cohost doesn’t understand what the term means:
You’re misunderstanding what pedophilia means. Pedophilia is not a sexual attraction to somebody 13 years old, who is sexually mature. Pedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty. Pedophilia is attraction to people who don’t have functioning sex organs yet who have not gone through puberty.
Today the #NeverTrumpers got their wish– Milo Yianoppoulos was disinvited from CPAC 2017.
Milo will be disinvited from #CPAC, I’ve just been told.
