Ann Coulter defended alt-right senior Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos after the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) took back its invitation for him to speak.
Yiannopoulos appeared in a revealing video apparently condoning pedophilia — specifically, adults having sex with children as young as 13. However, Coulter’s public pounded her for running to Yiannopoulos’ defense.
On Sunday, Yiannopoulos commented to The Reagan Battalion podcast about age-of-consent laws:
‘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.’
He went on to say that 13-year-olds are “sexually mature” and thus capable of consenting to a sexual relationship with an adult:
‘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.’
So how could Coulter defend him? She gave him an excuse, then turned on refugees and immigrants:
‘Well, Milo learned HIS lesson. Pederasty acceptable only for refugees and illegals. Then libs will support you.’

Coulter touched a live wire, and the public took her to task. Colonel Lingus said:
‘Wait are you saying you support pederasy [sic]?’
, wait are you saying you support pederasty?

Cx cope added:
‘When will you have enough attention to stop saying ignorant things like this? It’s so pathetic.’
Martina Navratilova nailed it with:
‘Are you sick or what?!? Seriously???’

Mark Schick tweeted:
‘Well that may be one of the most hateful, vial [sic] tweets I’ve ever read. Do you know the definition of the term refugee?’

RealHarryWiddifield reminded Coulter of famous conservative sexual criminal, former speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert:
‘Speaking of notable current Federal Prison Inmates.’
Howard Sherman laid Coulter out flat with this tweet:
‘How about doing what a human would, say his comments are repugnant and move on. You can’t help you girlfriend?’
Coulter excused Yiannopoulos for his horrendous comments. At the same time, she said that immigrants and refugees would be forgiven the same acts. No, Coulter, anyone who sexually abuses children is equally guilty, and anyone who condoned sexual abuse on children deserves all the hate the internet can muster.
