Conservative commentator and Breitbart Tech Editor, Milo Yiannopoulos, was suspended from Twitter for his remarks about radical Islamic terrorism.
Milo planned on giving a press conference near the Orlando, Florida nightclub that was the target of a deadly terrorist attack.
But the event was cancelled due to local police fearing they couldn’t adequately protect Milo from outside threats.
Determined not to cave to radical Islamists’ threats, Milo rescheduled the press conference for the following day.
In the moments leading up to the event, Milo took to social media to publicly deride the culture of Islam.
Shortly after, his Twitter account was suspended. Reports indicate Muslims offended by Milo reported his account.
For progressives who care more about appeasing radical Islamists than standing up for American ideals, the timing couldn’t be better.
A number of figures have been censored on social media for being outspoken against the threat of Islam, from Facebook to Twitter and even YouTube.
Milo’s followers didn’t relent and publicly attacked Twitter for their suppression of free speech.
Following the tremendous backlash, Twitter restored Milo’s account.
Milo is an openly gay man and an outspoken Trump supporter who has recently made it his mission to take on Islam in light of the terrorist attack in Orlando.
Last November, Milo wrote a column about mass Muslim immigration and why an attack on the LGBT community could happen.
“Gay people are getting stoned to death all the time in the Middle East, and not in the fun way: in the throw-big-rocks-at-your-head-until-you-die way,” Milo pointed out.
“I don’t mean to be callous, but what are we gaining by letting these people in? Why can’t we help them with overseas aid? Why do they need to come here? Aren’t we just encouraging more of them to risk the trip by throwing our borders open?” he added.
Realizing how the LGBT community is treated in Muslim nations, it’s easy to see why Milo doesn’t want a mass influx of immigration from the Middle East.
He was worried about an attack on Gay Americans.
He was right.
Milo has amassed a large following on social media and has become a target for the “Black Lives Matter” and “Social Justice Warrior” movements.
After the Orlando shooting, Milo penned a scathing op-ed on Breitbart titled “The Left Chose Islam Over Gays. Now 100 People Are Dead Or Maimed In Orlando.”
“I don’t mean a ‘radical Islam’ problem or an ‘extremist Islam problem.’ Violence is not the extreme in Islam any more: it’s the norm,” Milo wrote.
Milo’s press conference was a success, and he and those in attendance were unharmed.
