Milo Yiannopoulos has officially been banned from speaking at … – The Tab

A representative of the Union stated that his beliefs were deplorable

The Queen Margaret Union has banned students at the University of Glasgow from participating in a live streaming of rector nominee Milo Yiannopoulos.

The controversial far-right speaker was unable to take part in a planned Q&A within the student union, causing debate as to the impartiality of this decision.

The Unions Vice President Katrina Denholm defended the decision to ban the live stream by stating that Yiannopouloss beliefs aredeplorable and went against QMUs constitution. The decision to remove the nominees platform caused a backlash as students suggested that each candidate deserves the same treatment as others.

A member of Milos campaign team wrote: We are aware that some other candidates such as Aamer Anwar have held similar meetings and would appreciate if our campaign could receive a similar treatment.

However, Katrina Denholm statedthat the Board of Management of the QMU found that some of the opinions voiced by Mr Yiannopoulos were deplorable and, if made in the Union, would breach [their]Constitution: Section VII, Equality and Diversity.

A University of Glasgow spokesperson said: The Rector is nominated and elected by students and the University is required to allow due process to proceed in accordance with its resolutions.

It would not be appropriate for the University to interfere in the democratic process of this election.

However, it is important to note that anyone elected as Rector is required to abide by the values of the University, and should they not do so they can and will be held to account.

Many students were pleased with this decision, with one student sayingshe was: glad the Union was ensuring that Yiannopoulos would not be able to voice his opinions within the building itself. Milo has found himself facingopposition to a lot of commentshe has made over the course of his campaign.

Last night, Secret Service officials arrested a man after he drove up to a White House checkpoint and told them he was carrying a bomb.

According to the BBC, officials immediately declared the vehicle as suspicious and closed off nearby streets. CNN states that the White House was subsequently placed on high-security alert.

KTLA reports that there is no confirmation of whether or not the vehicle actually contained a bomb. Authorities are, however, conducting a criminal investigation into the incident.

This marks the third suspicious incident to take place at the White House in one week.

Last Saturday, March 11, a man jumped the White House fence and roamed the premises for an alarming 17 minutes before Secret Service agents detected him.

Yesterday afternoon, a man jumped a preliminary barrier in front of the White House in an apparent attempt to breach the property. He was stopped before he could get to the fence.

Pay attention: 3 non-serious attempts to breach White House Security within a week.

The Secret Service cannot even keep one person off the grounds, he said. What will they do if 40 terrorists charge the White House? And believe me, the terrorists are already thinking about that.

Kill Your Darlings: The Downfall of Milo Yiannopoulos – The Yale Politic

Kill your darlings.

Often associated incorrectly with William Faulkner, the adage conveys the need for a writer to edit mercilessly, to remove all impediments to a clean, compelling work, including those nonessential elements the writer finds most personally seductive. The quote is most often used in reference to literature, but the notion of shearing for the greater good can be found in real-world exploits as diverse as gardening and politics. In politics, especially, the kill can come swiftly and without mercy, destroying careers with a quick, irreparable cleave, as demonstrated recently in the fall of the darling of the alt-right, Milo Yiannopoulos.

The rejection of Milo Yiannopoulos was as unexpected as it was swift. Never one to avoid controversy, Yiannopoulos built his career on incendiary comments directed at women, ethnic and religious minorities, and other marginalized groups. His ascension into the public consciousness began in 2014 with Gamergate, an Internet harassment campaign against those advocating for gender inclusivity in video games. Milo sustained and grew his profile in subsequent years through a series of inflammatory comments, ranging from claims that accusations of sexual assault are a form of bragging to a belief that trans individuals are disordered. Years of interviews, contributions to message boards, and campus tours, along with his former position as an editor of the far-right news website Breitbart, led to his crowning as the public face of the alt-right movement. To his followers, Milo was a champion of free speech who dared to break the molds of political correctness. To his detractors he was a bigoted man spewing dangerous hate speech. His popularity, however, remained on the periphery for most of his time in the spotlight, isolated in the Reddit, 4Chan, and Breitbart communities, and the condemnation he received from the right was almost as strong as the condemnation he received from the left.

Yiannopoulos new position closer to the center of conservative circles only came with the onset of the 2016 election, when his first steps towards mainstream acceptance fell in time with the rise of Donald Trump. As the campaign progressed and the course of conservatism bent farther right, Yiannopoulos bigotry no longer existed on the fringe. He took on a greater legitimacy when a president who espoused nationalistic politics took office, and the subsequent appointment of Steve Bannon, the former head of Breitbart, as chief strategist and senior advisor to President Trump cemented the relationship between the new administration and the alt-right. The annexation of the alt-right into mainstream conservatism hastened when Yiannopoulos was invited to speak at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference 2017 (CPAC 2017), a bastion of mainstream conservatism. This olive branch was not pleasing to all or even most conservatives, however, and actions were taken almost immediately to remove Yiannopoulos from the program.

Within a day of the announcement, a sixteen year old Canadian girl provided the Reagan Battalion, a conservative blog, with videos from July 2016 in which Yiannopoulos appears to express support for pedophilic relationships between men and boys as young as 13. In the three days that followed the tweeted videos, Yiannopoulos lost his speaking position at CPAC and a $250,000 book deal with Simon and Schuster and resigned from the far-right news website Breitbart. While the abuse of children is difficult to justify under any ideology, why were his comments not regarded as attention fodder and part of his campaign for free speech, like earlier deplorable quotes? Milos hasty excommunication begs the question: What distinguishes this comment from those of the past?

While all answers are speculative, it is likely a confluence of character, content, and timing that led to the rejection of Yiannopoulos. Milo has always had a strained relationship with conservatism. A young, British, openly gay man with blonde hair extensions and an affinity for jewelry is not the mold of a stereotypical traditionalist. This dissonance already made Milos embrace by mainstream conservatism precarious, and the underlying suspicion of incompatibility was likely confirmed in the minds of CPAC attendees when Yiannopoulos claimed pedophilia was an acceptable practice. Not only did his comment go against the branding of conservatism as a family-first ideology, the fact that it came from a gay man likely played into the disproven stereotype that there is a link between homosexuality and pedophilia.

But it is difficult to believe the persona of Milo Yiannopoulos and the content of his comments alone led to the loss of his book deal and his departure from Breitbart, as both groups knew his antics well before his comments received wide media coverage. These losses are the effect of timing, of the decreasing relevance of Milo Yiannopoulos even as his career was reaching its zenith. In the years preceding the election of Donald Trump, the alt-right struggled to spread its message and gain legitimacy in the public sphere. Yiannopoulos solved the problem of publicity by making statements he knew would bring controversy, whether or not the statements were indicative of his own beliefs or a coherent alt-right ideology. With the rise of Donald Trump, however, the alt-right no longer needed spectacle to make their views known. The inclusion of Steve Bannon as a campaign manager and his subsequent appointment to the National Security Council gave the alt-right a voice on a national scale. Publications are now forming that plan to create an intellectual and coherent alt-right ideology, neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups have seen a rise in membership, and respected journalists from major networks have joined Breitbart as the alt-right has lost its fringe qualities.

With an increase in visibility, the alt-right no longer needs reactionaries like Milo Yiannopoulos, who offer little to boost the movements intellectual ambitions and harm its flimsy credibility with universally condemnable comments. And while it would be a stretch of the imagination of Trump-esque proportions to suggest there is a grand conspiracy of the alt-right, the fall of Milo Yiannopoulos comes at a time when his usefulness has dried up. Incendiary comments for the sake of being incendiary are no longer the model the alt-right must follow; returning to this strategy would be a step back. While Milos fall was hailed as a win for public decency and leftist values, it reveals a darker truth in the evolution of an ideology most believed could not flourish in the United States of today. The alt-right has lost its status as alternative; it sits in the ear of an easily swayable president and can be heard in the silence of a Republican-led Congress. With this normalization comes legitimacy, as the basket of deplorables rebrands as the silent majority. The new Republican base is ready for the next iteration of conservatism, and the alt-right is poised to replace the floundering old guard. But this transition will not be without casualties, and some darlings must be killed for the ideology to gain new life.

Judge on RuPaul opens up about shutting down Milo Yiannopoulos … – PinkNews

Television personality Ross Mathews has opened up about getting revenge on Milo Yiannopoulos after the right-wing figure head tried to shame Mathews for being flamboyant.

The RuPauls Drag Race judge, who came to fame as Ross the Intern on the Tonight Show, was targeted by Yiannopoulos when he publicly said: I get emails from mothers sometimes and they say my son is gay and I was terrified that he was going to turn into Ross Mathews.

Mathews felt compelled to respond to the negative remark and set precedent for young LGBT people.

He explained that he was proud to be the antithesis of Yiannopoulos, but knew that he had to respond quickly.

The Chelsea Lately guest hose decided not to talk to a publicist about approaching the matter, rather he just hit record and put the results out into the ether.

In the video Mathews stressed that being flamboyant or different does not mean you should be considered less than.

He goes on to say that he is unapologetically himself, and that Yiannopoulos can say anything because he is proud of who I am, even if its different

Matthews said that he is proud to be an example for kids who are trying to find their identity, but hes worried that kids who feel that theyre different will see Yiannopoulos negativity.

He finished the video off saying that his own mother was proud.

The video has since been watched nearly 3 million times since it was posted in February, and Mathews has said that he has received an outpour of positive feedback.

Ive read every single email, every single tweet and Im so grateful, he told GSN. But it is not about me, its not why I made the video. I didnt ask to be in this conversation and I dont want it to be about me. Im just glad that that message is getting out to the kids that theyre fine just the way they are.

The divine came through that day honey. Anyone whos been there knows exactly what I was talking about.

Milo Yiannopoulos, Joe Rogan, and TJ Kirk. YouTube screenshots

PodcastersJoe Rogan and TJ Kirk, also known as The Amazing Atheist, sat down together for an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, where they discussed the fact that it was their podcasts that lead to the downfall of Milo Yiannopoulos.

Yiannopoulos lost his lucrative book deal with Simon & Schuster, had his speaking spot at CPAC pulled, and parted ways with Breitbart, where he served as a senior editor, dueto commentshe made on The Joe Rogan Experienceand Kirks podcast Drunken Peasants about child sexual abuse, including his own, that seemed to many to trivialize it and support relationships between adult men and underage boys.

Related: The hero behind Milo Yiannopoulos fall is a 16-year-old girl from Canada

After a brief back and forth about the differences between smoking and eating marijuana, the two podcast hosts launched into the elephant in the room.

Your podcast was the big podcast that kind of sunkMilo, Rogan, who is also a comedian and UFC commentator, told Kirk. It was kind of a combination of mine and yours.

And I remember it was me watching him on your show that lead us to ask about that, cause I saw him on your show and he was like God at the time, Kirk recalled. He said he told his podcast co-host to make sure he knew what he was getting himself into if he confronted Yiannopoulos.

I told Paul, one of my co-hosts, This guy aint no lightweight and hes got a huge army of sycophants right now. If you get in a debate with him: If you lose, youre a total bitch; if you tie, you lose; if you win by a little, you lose. The only way you can actually beat him, with his army of sycophants at this time, is if you just demolish him. So dont even try.’

Rogan said he kind of knew where (Yiannopoulos) was coming from.

I knew he had experiences, sexual experiences when he was younger, and I think he was trying to trivialize them, and turn them into humor, Rogan said.

His way of dealing with it or whatever, was to say, It was mutual between me and the priest. I was molested by a priest but I was into it, so it was cool, Kirk said.

He was like, I was the predator,’ added Rogan.

Yeah, like he seduced the priest, said Kirk. You know, its kind of hard for me to imagine a 13-year-old boy, no matter how flamboyantly gay or sexually aggressive, you know, jumping the priests bones or something.

I think it sort of gives you a better understanding of how this guy came to be who he is today, and why he so relishes this role of being the contrarian, and being this sort of very difficult to pigeonhole gay man, whos very conservative but yet believes in man-boy love, Rogan said.

Related: Will Milo Yiannopoulos get thrown out of the United States?

Kirk and Rogan questioned whether or not Yiannopoulos is faking his whole persona, with Kirk suggesting the story about the priest could be a lie.

Milo Yiannopoulos: Students ‘banned from holding livestream’ with … – Glasgow Evening Times

The University of Glasgow’s students union are understood to have banned one of the nominees for Rector from taking part in a livestream with students.

Those behind theMilo for Rector Campaign contacted theQueen Margaret Union asking for permission to hold a live question and answer session with controversial far-right speakerMilo Yiannopoulos in the venue.

In response, the Union’s Vice President Katrina Denholm, told the students that Yiannopoulos’s beliefs were “deplorable” and broke the union’s constitution.

Representatives behind the campaign said that they deserve the same treatment as other candidates.

They wrote: “We are aware that some other candidates such as Aamer Anwar have held similar meetings and would appreciate if our campaign could receive similar treatment.

We believe that it is important that students are able to question all candidates in order to make an informed decision.”

Their requestwas allegedly denied by Queen Margaret Unions Vice President Katrina Denholm.

She said: “The Board of Management of the Queen Margaret Union has found some of the comments made by Mr Yiannopoulos regarding during his campaign to be completely deplorable, and to allow such opinions to be voiced within our Union would be in breach of our Constitution: section VII, Equality and Diversity.

Therefore we will not be allowing use of any space in our building for this purpose.

Supporters have instead organised a privatelivestream on YouTube and are asking Glasgow University students to request an invite.

A post on the group’s social media page reads: “With the catastophe that was the Rectoral Hustings now behind us we are pleased to announce that Milo will be responding to questions from University of Glasgow Students about why they should choose him to be their next Lord Rector.

“We, the students, should expect more from university hustings. We should demand answers. We should show rectoral candidates that we are serious about this position and that we demand representation.

“This is not a way for lawyers with dwindling support to boost their egos. Nor for unemployable graduates to try and boost their CVs.

“We need someone who is not afraid to shake things up and offer real change.”

The nomination for Yiannopoulos has been met with backlash since being announced earlier this month.

A petition and protest were organised calling for the university to remove him from the ballot.

Yiannopoulos previously said thathis first step if he was elected would be to outlaw the Muslim Students Association in order to “protect” LGBT students on campus.

The far-right provocateur said: I mean, if the LGBTQ+GIMKULTRAUUIPU*(*(#$%* [sic] community wants to feel safe, surely their first priority would be the representatives of a homophobic, theocratic system currently on campus, right?

A University of Glasgow spokesperson said: “The Rector is nominated and elected by students and the University is required to allow due process to proceed in accordance with its resolutions.

“It would not be appropriate for the University to interfere in the democratic process of this election.

“However, it is important to note that anyone elected as Rector is required to abide by the values of the University, and should they not do so they can and will be held to account.”

Kill Your Darlings: The Downfall of Milo Yiannopoulos – The Yale Politic

Kill your darlings. Often associated incorrectly with William Faulkner, the adage conveys the need for a writer to edit mercilessly, to remove all impediments to a clean, compelling work, including those nonessential elements the writer finds most personally seductive. The quote is most often used in reference to literature, but the notion of shearing for the greater good can be found in real-world exploits as diverse as gardening and politics. In politics, especially, the kill can come swiftly and without mercy, destroying careers with a quick, irreparable cleave, as demonstrated recently in the fall of the darling of the alt-right, Milo Yiannopoulos. The rejection of Milo Yiannopoulos was as unexpected as it was swift. Never one to avoid controversy, Yiannopoulos built his career on incendiary comments directed at women, ethnic and religious minorities, and other marginalized groups. His ascension into the public consciousness began in 2014 with Gamergate, an Internet harassment campaign against those advocating for gender inclusivity in video games. Milo sustained and grew his profile in subsequent years through a series of inflammatory comments, ranging from claims that accusations of sexual assault are a form of bragging to a belief that trans individuals are disordered. Years of interviews, contributions to message boards, and campus tours, along with his former position as an editor of the far-right news website Breitbart, led to his crowning as the public face of the alt-right movement. To his followers, Milo was a champion of free speech who dared to break the molds of political correctness. To his detractors he was a bigoted man spewing dangerous hate speech. His popularity, however, remained on the periphery for most of his time in the spotlight, isolated in the Reddit, 4Chan, and Breitbart communities, and the condemnation he received from the right was almost as strong as the condemnation he received from the left. Yiannopoulos new position closer to the center of conservative circles only came with the onset of the 2016 election, when his first steps towards mainstream acceptance fell in time with the rise of Donald Trump. As the campaign progressed and the course of conservatism bent farther right, Yiannopoulos bigotry no longer existed on the fringe. He took on a greater legitimacy when a president who espoused nationalistic politics took office, and the subsequent appointment of Steve Bannon, the former head of Breitbart, as chief strategist and senior advisor to President Trump cemented the relationship between the new administration and the alt-right. The annexation of the alt-right into mainstream conservatism hastened when Yiannopoulos was invited to speak at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference 2017 (CPAC 2017), a bastion of mainstream conservatism. This olive branch was not pleasing to all or even most conservatives, however, and actions were taken almost immediately to remove Yiannopoulos from the program. Within a day of the announcement, a sixteen year old Canadian girl provided the Reagan Battalion, a conservative blog, with videos from July 2016 in which Yiannopoulos appears to express support for pedophilic relationships between men and boys as young as 13. In the three days that followed the tweeted videos, Yiannopoulos lost his speaking position at CPAC and a $250,000 book deal with Simon and Schuster and resigned from the far-right news website Breitbart. While the abuse of children is difficult to justify under any ideology, why were his comments not regarded as attention fodder and part of his campaign for free speech, like earlier deplorable quotes? Milos hasty excommunication begs the question: What distinguishes this comment from those of the past? While all answers are speculative, it is likely a confluence of character, content, and timing that led to the rejection of Yiannopoulos. Milo has always had a strained relationship with conservatism. A young, British, openly gay man with blonde hair extensions and an affinity for jewelry is not the mold of a stereotypical traditionalist. This dissonance already made Milos embrace by mainstream conservatism precarious, and the underlying suspicion of incompatibility was likely confirmed in the minds of CPAC attendees when Yiannopoulos claimed pedophilia was an acceptable practice. Not only did his comment go against the branding of conservatism as a family-first ideology, the fact that it came from a gay man likely played into the disproven stereotype that there is a link between homosexuality and pedophilia. But it is difficult to believe the persona of Milo Yiannopoulos and the content of his comments alone led to the loss of his book deal and his departure from Breitbart, as both groups knew his antics well before his comments received wide media coverage. These losses are the effect of timing, of the decreasing relevance of Milo Yiannopoulos even as his career was reaching its zenith. In the years preceding the election of Donald Trump, the alt-right struggled to spread its message and gain legitimacy in the public sphere. Yiannopoulos solved the problem of publicity by making statements he knew would bring controversy, whether or not the statements were indicative of his own beliefs or a coherent alt-right ideology. With the rise of Donald Trump, however, the alt-right no longer needed spectacle to make their views known. The inclusion of Steve Bannon as a campaign manager and his subsequent appointment to the National Security Council gave the alt-right a voice on a national scale. Publications are now forming that plan to create an intellectual and coherent alt-right ideology, neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups have seen a rise in membership, and respected journalists from major networks have joined Breitbart as the alt-right has lost its fringe qualities. With an increase in visibility, the alt-right no longer needs reactionaries like Milo Yiannopoulos, who offer little to boost the movements intellectual ambitions and harm its flimsy credibility with universally condemnable comments. And while it would be a stretch of the imagination of Trump-esque proportions to suggest there is a grand conspiracy of the alt-right, the fall of Milo Yiannopoulos comes at a time when his usefulness has dried up. Incendiary comments for the sake of being incendiary are no longer the model the alt-right must follow; returning to this strategy would be a step back. While Milos fall was hailed as a win for public decency and leftist values, it reveals a darker truth in the evolution of an ideology most believed could not flourish in the United States of today. The alt-right has lost its status as alternative; it sits in the ear of an easily swayable president and can be heard in the silence of a Republican-led Congress. With this normalization comes legitimacy, as the basket of deplorables rebrands as the silent majority. The new Republican base is ready for the next iteration of conservatism, and the alt-right is poised to replace the floundering old guard. But this transition will not be without casualties, and some darlings must be killed for the ideology to gain new life.

Judge on RuPaul opens up about shutting down Milo Yiannopoulos … – PinkNews

Television personality Ross Mathews has opened up about getting revenge on Milo Yiannopoulos after the right-wing figure head tried to shame Mathews for being flamboyant. The RuPauls Drag Race judge, who came to fame as Ross the Intern on the Tonight Show, was targeted by Yiannopoulos when he publicly said: I get emails from mothers sometimes and they say my son is gay and I was terrified that he was going to turn into Ross Mathews. Mathews felt compelled to respond to the negative remark and set precedent for young LGBT people. He explained that he was proud to be the antithesis of Yiannopoulos, but knew that he had to respond quickly. The Chelsea Lately guest hose decided not to talk to a publicist about approaching the matter, rather he just hit record and put the results out into the ether. In the video Mathews stressed that being flamboyant or different does not mean you should be considered less than. He goes on to say that he is unapologetically himself, and that Yiannopoulos can say anything because he is proud of who I am, even if its different Matthews said that he is proud to be an example for kids who are trying to find their identity, but hes worried that kids who feel that theyre different will see Yiannopoulos negativity. He finished the video off saying that his own mother was proud. The video has since been watched nearly 3 million times since it was posted in February, and Mathews has said that he has received an outpour of positive feedback. Ive read every single email, every single tweet and Im so grateful, he told GSN. But it is not about me, its not why I made the video. I didnt ask to be in this conversation and I dont want it to be about me. Im just glad that that message is getting out to the kids that theyre fine just the way they are. The divine came through that day honey. Anyone whos been there knows exactly what I was talking about.

Joe Rogan, TJ Kirk discuss how their podcasts led to Milo … – LGBTQ Nation

Milo Yiannopoulos, Joe Rogan, and TJ Kirk. YouTube screenshots PodcastersJoe Rogan and TJ Kirk, also known as The Amazing Atheist, sat down together for an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, where they discussed the fact that it was their podcasts that lead to the downfall of Milo Yiannopoulos. Yiannopoulos lost his lucrative book deal with Simon & Schuster, had his speaking spot at CPAC pulled, and parted ways with Breitbart, where he served as a senior editor, dueto commentshe made on The Joe Rogan Experienceand Kirks podcast Drunken Peasants about child sexual abuse, including his own, that seemed to many to trivialize it and support relationships between adult men and underage boys. Related: The hero behind Milo Yiannopoulos fall is a 16-year-old girl from Canada After a brief back and forth about the differences between smoking and eating marijuana, the two podcast hosts launched into the elephant in the room. Your podcast was the big podcast that kind of sunkMilo, Rogan, who is also a comedian and UFC commentator, told Kirk. It was kind of a combination of mine and yours. And I remember it was me watching him on your show that lead us to ask about that, cause I saw him on your show and he was like God at the time, Kirk recalled. He said he told his podcast co-host to make sure he knew what he was getting himself into if he confronted Yiannopoulos. I told Paul, one of my co-hosts, This guy aint no lightweight and hes got a huge army of sycophants right now. If you get in a debate with him: If you lose, youre a total bitch; if you tie, you lose; if you win by a little, you lose. The only way you can actually beat him, with his army of sycophants at this time, is if you just demolish him. So dont even try.’ Rogan said he kind of knew where (Yiannopoulos) was coming from. I knew he had experiences, sexual experiences when he was younger, and I think he was trying to trivialize them, and turn them into humor, Rogan said. His way of dealing with it or whatever, was to say, It was mutual between me and the priest. I was molested by a priest but I was into it, so it was cool, Kirk said. He was like, I was the predator,’ added Rogan. Yeah, like he seduced the priest, said Kirk. You know, its kind of hard for me to imagine a 13-year-old boy, no matter how flamboyantly gay or sexually aggressive, you know, jumping the priests bones or something. I think it sort of gives you a better understanding of how this guy came to be who he is today, and why he so relishes this role of being the contrarian, and being this sort of very difficult to pigeonhole gay man, whos very conservative but yet believes in man-boy love, Rogan said. Related: Will Milo Yiannopoulos get thrown out of the United States? Kirk and Rogan questioned whether or not Yiannopoulos is faking his whole persona, with Kirk suggesting the story about the priest could be a lie.

Milo Yiannopoulos: Students ‘banned from holding livestream’ with … – Glasgow Evening Times

The University of Glasgow’s students union are understood to have banned one of the nominees for Rector from taking part in a livestream with students. Those behind theMilo for Rector Campaign contacted theQueen Margaret Union asking for permission to hold a live question and answer session with controversial far-right speakerMilo Yiannopoulos in the venue. In response, the Union’s Vice President Katrina Denholm, told the students that Yiannopoulos’s beliefs were “deplorable” and broke the union’s constitution. Read more:Glasgow University students plan Milo Yiannopoulos protest at rector hustings Representatives behind the campaign said that they deserve the same treatment as other candidates. They wrote: “We are aware that some other candidates such as Aamer Anwar have held similar meetings and would appreciate if our campaign could receive similar treatment. We believe that it is important that students are able to question all candidates in order to make an informed decision.” Their requestwas allegedly denied by Queen Margaret Unions Vice President Katrina Denholm. She said: “The Board of Management of the Queen Margaret Union has found some of the comments made by Mr Yiannopoulos regarding during his campaign to be completely deplorable, and to allow such opinions to be voiced within our Union would be in breach of our Constitution: section VII, Equality and Diversity. Therefore we will not be allowing use of any space in our building for this purpose. Supporters have instead organised a privatelivestream on YouTube and are asking Glasgow University students to request an invite. A post on the group’s social media page reads: “With the catastophe that was the Rectoral Hustings now behind us we are pleased to announce that Milo will be responding to questions from University of Glasgow Students about why they should choose him to be their next Lord Rector. “We, the students, should expect more from university hustings. We should demand answers. We should show rectoral candidates that we are serious about this position and that we demand representation. “This is not a way for lawyers with dwindling support to boost their egos. Nor for unemployable graduates to try and boost their CVs. “We need someone who is not afraid to shake things up and offer real change.” The nomination for Yiannopoulos has been met with backlash since being announced earlier this month. Read more:Young woman indecently assaulted in Glasgow city centre A petition and protest were organised calling for the university to remove him from the ballot. Yiannopoulos previously said thathis first step if he was elected would be to outlaw the Muslim Students Association in order to “protect” LGBT students on campus. The far-right provocateur said: I mean, if the LGBTQ+GIMKULTRAUUIPU*(*(#$%* [sic] community wants to feel safe, surely their first priority would be the representatives of a homophobic, theocratic system currently on campus, right? A University of Glasgow spokesperson said: “The Rector is nominated and elected by students and the University is required to allow due process to proceed in accordance with its resolutions. “It would not be appropriate for the University to interfere in the democratic process of this election. “However, it is important to note that anyone elected as Rector is required to abide by the values of the University, and should they not do so they can and will be held to account.”
