CPAC, which stands for the “Conservative Political Action Conference,” used to be a venerable conclave which met annually to keep the torch of conservatism lit and burning brightly.
Now it has morphed into an event in which an invited speaker supports and defends pedophilia (sex with prepubescent boys), pederasty (sex with post-pubescent boys), and statutory rape (adults, such as teachers, having sex with underage individuals).
Over the weekend, this year’s organizers sprung Milo Yiannopoulos, the flamboyantly gay senior editor of Breitbart, on the world as this year’s featured guest. This apparently came as a surprise to the American Conservative Union, the umbrella organization for CPAC.
Yiannopoulos will get as much prominent speaking time as the vice-president of the United States, Mike Pence, and former presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz.
In a tape that surfaced on Sunday, Yiannopoulos can be heard celebrating the wonders of man-boy love.
“We get hung up on this sort of child abuse stuff to the point where we are heavily policing consensual adults.
“In the homosexual world, particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men — the sort of ‘coming of age’ relationship — those relationships in which those older men help those young boys discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable, sort of rock, where they can’t speak to their parents.” (Emphasis mine.)
In a 2015 interview with comedian Joe Rogan, Yiannopoulos discussed his sexual relationship with a Catholic priest, one “Father Michael,” which began at age 14. Yiannopoulos claims to be grateful to this priest for his sexual awakening, even though it is nothing less than pederasty and statutory rape.
Father Michael apparently introduced the young Milo to homosexuality at that tender young age, a reminder that many adult homosexuals were the victims of sexual predators as young boys. Initial male-on-male sexual experiences have an overwhelmingly powerful imprinting effect on the psyche and self-concept of young boys, and many think of themselves as homosexuals from that day forward even though they are not. They are not homosexuals, they are victims.
Homosexuals, as even Milo himself admits, are not born - they are made. He refers to the “born-that-way” narrative as a “myth” invented by homosexual activists in the 1980s to excuse homosexual behavior, and claims that homosexuality is a result of “nurture” rather than “nature.”
Later in the interview with Rogan, Yiannopoulos speaks approvingly of a Hollywood party he attended some time ago in which there were “very young boys” in attendance for sexual purposes.
He also has criticized the fact that we punish teachers who seduce their students, which is the crime of statutory rape. He believes that pederasty - a man having sex with a teenage boy - should not be a crime but something an enlightened society should celebrate.
Whatever else it is, homosexuality is not a “conservative” value. And a proponent of “the crime against nature” has no place at a conservative conference, let alone as a featured attraction.
CPAC continues its headlong slide into the abyss of sexually abnormal behavior. After finally allowing the Log Cabin Republicans (a pro-homosexual GOP group) booth space several years ago, CPAC then caved to the gay lobby by allowing the LCR to be a full-fledged sponsor in 2016. And now as the capstone to its dalliance with sexual deviancy, CPAC is giving us Milo.
Even liberals are aghast at what CPAC has done. Jake Tapper of CNN is “horrified,” and wants to know, “how on earth can CPAC defend this?” He adds, “Preying on children is the definition of evil. Justifying it in any way is sick and disturbing. Has everyone lost their minds?”
The board of the ACU, which apparently was not consulted on the Milo decision, has some serious and immediate thinking and deciding to do, since the conference starts on Wednesday. Breitbart also has some serious thinking to do, since they have made this morally debauched man an international star and the face of their organization. For the sake of sanity, decency, and the conservative movement, here’s hoping and praying that CPAC and Breitbart choose wisely. And here’s hoping and praying that Milo himself can find the path to sexual normalcy before it’s too late.
(Editor's Update: This blog was already written and posted before receiving news that Milo Yiannopoulos had been "disinvited" from being a speaker at CPAC. While this is good news it still begs the question as to why the powers that be at CPAC wanted him to speak in the first place which this blog raises.)
