Many threads about how Milo "obviously" condones and supports pedophilia and I figured why not post his press conference so everybody can hear it straight from the horse's mouth?

Highlights: he doesn't support it or condone it and thinks it's wrong; humor is his way of dealing with his own abuse; he apologizes to other abuse victims for his words causing offense; he believes this is a witch-hunt to try and shut him down, since the videos have been "out there" for over a year; some comments were selectively edited and taken out of context, others were in poor taste and don't reflect his beliefs;

His statement is about eight minutes long, then he takes questions. Questions are pretty hard to hear for the most part and he doesn't really repeat what's been asked. Oddly, somebody asked him what kind of visa he entered the US on. (answer: an 01-B visa: individual with extraordinary ability or achievement)

I actually feel bad for Milo.

His defense mechanisms that help him deal with his past issues came back to bite him in the ass.

01-B visa: individual with extraordinary ability or achievement?

Does anyone know what his extraordinary is?

It was clear before this that he's mentally unstable, this just cements it. Gallows humor, sarcasm, etc. etc. are all fine things. Normal people don't have to host press conferences denying that they support pedophilia. It's implicit. There are lots of comedians who make jokes about these things and don't have to hold press conferences about them.

A) You're not as good a comedian as you think you are. B) You're just trolling and want to play the victim again. Enjoy the free publicity.

It all comes off as just an act to me. I just don't think he gives a damn one way or the other.

If I am not mistaken, the 01-B visa is often used as a quick way to get famous or affluent people in to the US.

While not always used in such a fashion, it's a fast track for the well-connected.

Entertainment is a pretty broad, and vague, category for being "exceptional."

01-B visas get handed out like candy

Milo has always been a troll, trying to ride the wave of popularity that comes from being the Right Wing's token gay dude.

I would not want to presume as to how he is feeling about how things have transpired. He obviously has issues and probably needs to get out of the media's eyes for a while.

He's done a lot of damage to his brand.

Yes its Breitbart, but it is just Milo's words.

Thanks for adding it, though

Well said! I have no idea who he was before, during, or after this story... and the fact I have no clue where his relevance or importance to society lays, makes the obvious notion that I am not aware or even familiar with the sick and twisted world his mind lives in... meaning, it takes one to know one.

He mentions that he so valiantly reported 3 sexual attacks on children, where his critics can't speak for being such a stand up citizen like he can. I am ready to break out the guns when I may be witness to such a horrible act... I can't imagine how many felonies on children this guy witnessed if he turned in 3.

Such a tortured mind can never be viewed as credible... without even attaching the crimes to his actual opinions on what he feels. His lack of eye contact and presentation demeanor did not show symptoms of a true heart felt connection to the receivers of the message.

Let's just sign him up for Meghan's List and move on...

I don't get it. Who cares about Milo and what he thinks? Im sure most on the right can relate with the man, but I can find a hundred other people like him online that's just not popular/famous. I never even heard of this guy until the some on the left kept ranting about him here on ATS. I see him as the SJW of the right. I'm sure he doesn't support pedophilia. But I guess this is the type of positions you will find yourself in when talking about passionate topics on a public platform.

Half the reason I posted this link was to see how much attention all the people who've been screaming about milo for the last several days would react to getting unedited video of him clearly stating his beliefs and positions.

Shocking me not at all, this thread is getting very little attention from that crowd. Ah well.

Would you be comfortable with him babysitting your kids? I wouldn't even let him in my house!
Perfect spokes person for the Trump administration however?

Most telling is his own use of Trumpisms all through, he also asks the reporters to be...respectful, not quite one of his or Trumps for that matter, best atttributes on any other occasions. Frankly, there is much suspicion of near anything he says, especially about himself that could be described as inventiveness, one can only make their own minds view on that, and certainly it's not totally consistent if you have seen the original video/s. I will post one of those back here when I retrieve it.
This video is much clearer,

*The controversial video,


*Note how the interviewer pushes Milo on the age he was when he became involved with the priest, (bearing in mind that in his press conference above it was 17), but going by the interview, it could be pushed back to nearer 14 years old, the same age Milo also describes as himself being a predator for sex, including adults, or adults particularly, but certainly adults involved.

Except he is not a comedian, he is a political commentator.

He is widely acknowledged as both.

What is John Stewart, Colbert, etc?

Big fan of Milo, sad that he has been destroyed in the fashion he has. You knew once the left organized against him, they would take him down. First a victim of abuse, now a victim of the left, hopefully he can find a way to come back from this attack.
