    Conservative pundit draws protesters at University of Minnesota

    Stephanie Taylor admits that she’d never even heard of the guy a week ago. But on Wednesday night, she led a boisterous protest at the University of Minnesota against a conservative pundit named Milo Yiannopoulos for spreading what she called “hate speech.”

    It was the second campus protest in a week for Yiannopoulos, who was shouted down Feb. 9 at Rutgers University in New Jersey by activists smeared in fake blood.

    On Wednesday evening, Yiannopoulos packed the 250-seat auditorium at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs along with author Christina Hoff Sommers, while about 40 protesters gathered outside chanting, “Yiannopoulos, out of Minneapolis!”

    No one seemed to be enjoying the theatrics more than the target of their anger.

    “It’s enormously good fun,” said Yiannopoulos, a telegenic 31-year-old college dropout from London who is now senior editor for the conservative Breitbart News Network. “All of the very worst people in the world get triggered by the mere mention of my name.”

    In the past few months, he has emerged as a YouTube star and culture warrior of the right, with withering criticisms of feminism and the stifling of free speech on U.S. campuses.

    He readily acknowledges that his message is provocative, deriding modern feminism as “a bitter, nasty, ugly, man-hating empty horror show.” He also insists that, as a gay man, he’s freer to challenge feminist orthodoxy than other men, who fear being shouted down or ostracized for their views.

    Among his favorite themes: what he calls the exaggerated myth of a “rape culture” on college campuses, or the frequently cited statistic that women are paid less than men for the same work. “Absurd,” he says, saying the claims don’t hold up to scrutiny.

    Critics have blasted him as “an anti-feminist troll” and “crank of the far right.”

    “He is eccentric and entertaining,” said Blake Kraussel, 21, of Students for a Conservative Voice, the campus group that invited Yiannopolous to the U. “We didn’t pick him to start controversy. It kind of followed him.”

    His appearance at the U, titled “CALM DOWN! Restoring Common Sense to Feminism,” was briefly interrupted by five protesters shouting and sounding noisemakers. They were quickly escorted out by campus police.

    The protest was organized by the U chapter of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Yiannopolous’ message “is pretty overtly sexist,” said Taylor, 28, a 2012 graduate of the U’s Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies program.

    Outside the packed auditorium, activists held protest signs saying “End rape culture” and “Rape culture is not a myth.”

    Taylor insisted that the protest was not meant to shut down free speech. But “we think it’s important to have a clear message … that hate speech isn’t tolerated on this campus.”

    Yiannopolous, meanwhile, says he relishes the controversy, describing it as “hundreds of thousands of dollars of free advertising.” The critics, he joked, “make me look reasonable.”

    “I don’t want outrage for its own sake,” he said. “I’m happy where it occurs because it draws attention to what I’m talking about.”

    The sexists at the Star Tribune barely even mention Christina Hoff Sommers.

    Darn, now I wish I were going, and this is being held in a pretty cool part of the DC area.

    Papal smackdown…brilliant response from Trump. Gotta hand it to this guy, he sure knows how to play them…even the pope. Waiting for the clouds to open in the heavens and a voice to suddenly say…”now, Donald….”

    • Somebody says:

      I don’t think it is the Pope’s business to interfere in USA politics. Furthermore I don’t care who he is, he has no right to determine whether Trump is a Christian or not. Judge not Pope, dust off your Bible there buddy.

      You can call me a racist or an atheist or whatever you want, but I want our border secured and our immigration laws enforced…….well changed too, but that’s another story. If we don’t have borders then we don’t have a country….SPEAKING of walls, if the Pope is so into open borders then Mr. Pope tear down those Vatican walls!!!

      I hope, hope, hope that all the candidates stick together and insist that the Pope has no place inserting himself into our politics.

      • Anthony says:

        I’m totally with you on this, Somebody, and I’ll go a step further:

        The Pope needs to STFU about matters of state and stick to religion. Unless, of course, he wants to forego his tax exemptions and pay taxes on the land that Catholic churches are built on. The revenue from St. Patricks alone would put my city back in the black instead of running on empty.

        Another alternative would be to set an example and remove the Leonine Wall that surrounds Vatican City (which, btw, has a seat at the U.N., as it is a sovereign nation). That wall was constructed to keep Muslims out during the Crusades. Let him take down the wall and take in some Syrian Muslim refugees, if he wants to shoot his mouth off about the U.S.

        And yes, I was raised Roman Catholic.

          Ditto. Also Catholc.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          I’ve noticed that ex-Catholics tend to be the most critical of that church.

          • Anthony says:

            I’m equally critical to any hypocrite

          • swanspirit says:

            Might be because we were victims and targets of so much hypocrisy, for so many years. Even when you expect it as a matter of course, it is still infuriating.STFU and go home and sit behind your massive walls and your Swedish guard and leave us the hell alone. Pray for something, why don’t you pope socialist.
            This pope is such a hypocrite. For so many hundreds of years, women all over the world have suffered, seriously suffered; because the church said birth control was the equivalent of abortion; and now just because of the Zika virus, it is suddenly ok?? because he just waved his magic sceptre and made it so??? because all of the life threatening reasons prior to this particular virus weren’t enough?? Because being a child and being abused wasn’t enough to even allow birth control?? F*** him and the pope car he came in on.

          • helenk3 says:

            when you see and live through the hypocrisy you have a different take on things. I swore when I turned 18 I would never step inside a Catholic church again. Of course when I had kids the guilt stepped in an I had them baptized, but I did not push the religion on them. Believe me nuns are not all like they are portrayed in the Bells of Saint Mary. A lot are like the Magdalene Laundry.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Have they finished the renovations at St. Patrick’s? I always stop by to light a candle, so they’ve made a few bucks off me. If I catch a mass I always take communion, haven’t been struck by lightening yet.🙂 I hear they’ve done away with confession as a requirement ? I think the only feminist thing I’ve done in my life is leave the church when I became an adult because birth control pills were banned.

      • driguana says:

        Totally agree that the Pope has no right inserting himself into US politics…or politics anywhere for that matter. All “institutions”…political, religious, social etc….all seem to be going through some changes…good thing, too.

    • Venus says:

      I posted a reply below that didn’t nest properly.

      Long post short: there’s a reason countries threw over papal control of their politics; Trump should write this Bishop of Rome a thank you note.

    Has anybody ventured over to see what Beck is saying about the Pope thing? I’m betting he says God told the Pope to take down Trump or something to that effect.

    Come Dora, you know you want to peek… keep dragging those Beck links over here, LMAO!

    I haven’t been paying a lot of attention to Milo, but I’ve been to a session with Christina Hoff Sommers. It was shortly after “The War Against Boys” came out, and the audience was mostly teachers and future teachers. I didn’t agree with a lot of what she said, but I wasn’t damaged by listening to her. That’s the part I don’t get.

    “They, too, failed to understand Trump’s appeal, how something so offensive to their political palate could be cathartic for millions of their own voters.” – J.D. Vance

  12. jennifer lyn says:

    For the pope to question other’s ethics is like letting the fox in the hen house. The Catholic Church is responsible for more abject human suffering than almost anyone (except the Democrats:).

  13. jennifer lyn says:

    If hypocrisy was deadly ….. the world would have about 10 inhabitants. None of them Catholic. Sorry but the protecting of pedophiles cannot be undone and in my humble but opinionated opinion time to disband, sell off to pay debts, and move on.

    I think we should boycott professional football. They hired BloatedEgo and thus they should suffer. Women should hang their heads in shame over the “SL” song. Can you imagine if I, a woman, made a song about single men and a dance to mimic their moves? Picture lots of humping motions and desperation (hope I don’t offend but just saying)…..

    J.D. Vance:

    What unites Trump’s voters is a sense of alienation from America’s wealthy and powerful. People with Ivy League degrees lord over our business and political institutions, yet literally zero graduates of my high school class attended an Ivy League undergraduate college. People in my hometown voted for President Reagan — for many, like my grandpa, he was their first Republican — because he promised that tax cuts would bring higher wages and new jobs. It seemed he was right, so we voted for the next Republican promising tax cuts and job creation, George W. Bush. He wasn’t right. We’ve seen little in the way of higher wages in nearly 20 years.

    Politicians of both parties told us that free trade with Asia and Latin America would spur economic growth, and maybe it did somewhere else. In our towns, though, factories continue shutting down or moving overseas. We might have sympathy for the Mexican immigrant trying to make a better life for his family, but many see those immigrants primarily as competition for an ever dwindling supply of jobs. We watch our sons go to war, disagree with the rationale for sending them, loathe the men who ordered them to battle and then, when the veterans come home, beg and plead with the local VA to ensure they have access to proper care.

    This alienation separates Trump’s voters from the constituency of another firebrand insurgent, Ted Cruz. Cruz draws from married voters, evangelical Christians, the elderly and those who identify as “very conservative.” These folks might be angry about the political process, but their anger is ideological and their lives — filled with family and church — are fundamentally intact.

    Trump’s voters, instead, wear an almost existential sense of betrayal. He relies on unmarried voters, individuals who rarely attend church services and those without much higher education. Many of these Trump voters have abandoned the faith of their forefathers and myriad social benefits that come with it. Their marriages have failed, and their families have fractured. The factories that moved overseas used to provide not just high-paying jobs, but also a sense of purpose and community. Their kids (and themselves) might be more likely to die from a heroin overdose than any other group in the country.

    Cruz’s voters dislike Jeb Bush because he has strayed from conservative orthodoxy. Trump’s voters loathe Jeb Bush because their lives are falling apart, and they blame people like him.

    Last Saturday, in the most recent Republican debate, Jeb again defended his brother’s national security record. This time, Trump’s rejoinder came immediately: “The World Trade Center came down during your brother’s reign, remember that. … That’s not keeping us safe.” Many pundits pronounced Trump the debate’s loser and Jeb one of its winners, noting that Trump had harshly criticized a former president still very popular in Republican circles. But in a scientific poll of debate watchers, nearly one-quarter indicated that Trump won; Jeb came in dead last with 5%.

    These folks won’t abandon Trump because he insults other candidates or tells a joke about shooting someone on Fifth Avenue. They won’t simply move to another candidate, especially not one promising the same concoction of policies that Republicans have promised for decades with disastrous consequences. And they won’t penalize Trump for telling political elites something they wish they could say themselves.

    This doesn’t mean Trump will win the nomination. He could implode in some online fit. His voters, withdrawn from institutions of work and faith, might avoid the ballot box, too. They may be lured by an aspirational economic message, one that recognizes the failures of the modern economy while offering more than great Mexican walls to fix it. Unfortunately, the most natural communicator of such a message, Marco Rubio, seems uninterested in talking about his pro-working class proposals.

    But these Americans are not going away. And short of an act of God or another political candidate who understands their grievances, neither is Donald Trump.

    This guy gets it.

    Geeesh, when the rest of the media noticed even the Pope can’t knock Trump off his game, the New Yorker decides to edit his statement?

  19. jennifer lyn says:

    Wonder what would happen if black man would hurt Chelsea Clinton. Would Hillary and Bill still do the a..kissing shuffle and bow down to BLM? Or would they demand justice? Would Hillary harp on about how a black man just can’t get justice in the legal system or would she ask for a hanging judge? My bets are on the hanging judge. Golden Rule people–just follow the golden rule. Treat others as you wish to be treated. Rules either matter for all or matter for none and we are moving too quickly toward the latter with only death and destruction to follow. Sorry for my bluntness but when all the cops quit, and I wouldn’t blame them a bit if they did, I hope they kill the hypocrites first and I get to watch.

  20. Venus says:

    Trump should send the Pope a thank you letter.

    This kerfuffle knocks the Haley endorsement out of the news and makes sure Cruz and Rubio get no oxygen.

    Also good timing because South Carolina is one of the least Catholic states even though Catholics support Trump.

    The South as a whole is more religious than other parts of the country, BUT the predominant religion is Protestant (except southern Louisiana)

    There is an anti Catholic bias which was prevalent before Kennedy was elected.

    There is a more recent bias due to the priest/molestation scandals a few years back.

    And to top it off we have this Marxist Pope shooting his mouth off.

      Maybe he should switch parties. I hear the democrats are looking for a better option than deadbeat Bern or barking Hillary.

      All he needs to do now his devotion to the hockey stick gods of global warming and whine that everyone who disagrees with him is racist.

  23. taw46 says:

    “Pope Francis has never said that Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi are not Christian because they support a legal right to infanticide, but now he has strongly suggested that Donald Trump is not Christian because he wants to build a border wall and deport all illegal immigrants. Trump may or may not be a Christian, but the pope’s comments are just baffling.”
