Milo Yiannopoulos claims TV presenters are ‘too cowardly’ to interview him. He says string of country’s most popular TV programs have cancelled interviews. Yiannopoulos specifically named Waleed Aly, Karl Stefanovic and Jessica Rowe. He said Ten’s The Project and Studio Ten – as well as Nine’s Today – all cancelled. Yiannopoulos: ‘Australia’s media is running scared of a harmless homosexual’. Nine and Channel 10 have been contacted for comment.
Milo Yiannopoulos has slammed some of Australia’s highest-paid journalists and says they are ‘too cowardly’ to interview a ‘gay guy with different opinions’.
The right-wing firebrand claims a string of the country’s most popular television programs have cancelled interviews ahead of his Australian tour.
‘Waleed Aly, Karl Stefanovic and Jessica Rowe are too scared to interview me. That’s the only conclusion I can draw,’ he told Daily Mail Australia on Monday.
‘These are some of the highest-paid, highest-profile and supposedly brave journalists in the country.
‘But they’re frightened of debating a gay guy with opinions that differ from theirs – in their own studios, on their own home turf. What’s going on?’
He said Channel Ten’s The Project organised to interview him via satellite before the program told him they would prefer to have him in the studio when he arrived in Australia.
After Yiannopoulos agreed to both interviews, he said the producers told him they were ‘too busy this week’ and cancelled.

At a press conference on Saturday, Yiannopoulos accused the university of using bureaucratic tricks to derail the event, adding that UC Berkeley “had done everything in its power to crush” the Free Speech Week.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but is it worth $800,000?
Officials at the University of California, Berkeley, said the brief appearance of right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos on campus Sunday cost the school $800,000 to ensure his safety.
Yiannopoulos appeared at the steps of the iconic Sproul Hall – the birthplace of the 1960’s Free Speech movement – after his highly anticipated Free Speech Week was abruptly canceled.
The open-air event lasted less than an hour. Yiannopoulos spent the time taking pictures with fans, signing his new book and took part in the national anthem.
Attendees — including Yiannopoulos — had to pass through metal detectors.

“This is a clear threat to public higher education.”
A faculty letter addressed to the UC Berkeley campus and the Berkeley community at large is calling for a complete boycott of classes and campus activities during the upcoming “Free Speech Week,” which will feature conservative speakers whose very names inspire college students to seek safe spaces and therapy.
The Berkeley paper called The Daily Californian reports that the letter was co-written by seven faculty members, including Michael Cohen, a campus associate teaching professor of African American studies. The letter urges fellow faculty members to take three steps: cancel classes and tell students to stay home; close buildings and departments and allow staff to stay home; and not penalize students who are afraid of coming to campus. The letter was signed by 132 campus faculty members from various departments, and by 56 individuals who aren’t part of the UC Berkeley faculty.
Cohen said that most of the students in his African American Studies class are students “of color,” and he believes it is unethical and discriminatory for him to ask his students to be on campus during Free Speech Week, which will be held on campus from Sept. 24-27.
As noted by the Daily Californian, Free Speech Week is being hosted by the Berkeley Patriot, a conservative student newspaper. The four-day event includes themes such as “Feminism Awareness Day” and “Mario Savio is Dead.” Speakers scheduled to be on campus include libertarian provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, conservative commentator Ann Coulter, and dreaded Breitbart honcho Steve Bannon.

Former Breitbart Senior Editor MILO appeared Friday on Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM’s Patriot Channel 125 to discuss his upcoming Berkeley Free Speech Week event.
“I want to talk about free speech week,” Breitbart Edit0r-In-Chief Alex Marlow stated, “which is coming up and I don’t want to call it your revenge on Berkeley, I’m specifically not going to call it that.”
“It’s not about vengeance it’s about justice!” MILO interjected.
Marlow continued, “So people know that I’m a Berkeley graduate and I had a lot of experience on the campus, and I was active with campus politics and stuff like that. You’ve really seen it go from where right of center views were not appreciated, it was just the beginning of the era where people get shouted down for voicing right of center views, and now we are at the point where there are literally antifa riots if a conservative dares to give an opinion on a campus like this, so MILO has created free speech week.”

Free Speech Week will tackle threats to free speech endemic in movements and ideologies such as feminism and Islam.
The Berkeley mayor advised UC Berkeley to cancel conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos’ planned September Free Speech Week.
Jesse Arreguin, mayor of Berkeley, expressed concern on Monday about the Sept. 24-27 slew of events planned by Yiannopoulos after the Aug. 27 Antifa violence, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
“I don’t want Berkeley being used as a punching bag,” Arreguin told the Chronicle. “I am concerned about these groups using large protests to create mayhem.”
“I’m very concerned about Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter and some of these other right-wing speakers coming to the Berkeley campus, because it’s just a target for black bloc to come out and commit mayhem on the Berkeley campus and have that potentially spill out on the street,” Arreguin said.
UC Berkeley stressed that cancelling invitations to the university is not within its prerogative and that the school is helping the conservative student host group, Berkeley Patriot, to find a time and place for Yiannopoulos’ appearance.

A fan of former Breitbart senior editor Milo Yiannopoulos is suing UC Berkeley for $23 million, claiming routine abuse against conservative students on campus.
The fan of Milo, whose book Dangerous reached #1 on Amazon’s best sellers list within a day of being made available to pre-order this week, claims that her First Amendment rights were infringed after she was forced to evacuate Milo’s speech on-campus in February when a left-wing protest turned into a violent riot.
“The suit, filed in federal court in California on Monday alleges that the defendants ‘have subjected UC Berkeley students and invitees who do not subscribe to the radical, left wing philosophies sanctioned by Defendants to severe violence and bodily harm for merely expressing a differing viewpoint, in clear contravention of their rights under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,’” reported SF Gate on Tuesday. “In addition to the UC Berkeley Regents, the suit’s many defendants include UC president Janet Napolitano, the UC Berkeley police department, the Berkeley police department, frequent conservative target George Soros and California representative Nancy Pelosi.”
In the lawsuit, the fan claims that “The University of California Berkeley (‘UC Berkeley’) … has acted to unconstitutionally curtail the First Amendment rights of its students and invitees thereof.”

Conservative firebrand and former Breitbart Senior Editor MILO will be hosting a week-long free speech event in Berkeley later this year.
In a post to his 2 million Facebook fans, MILO outlined the event that he plans to host at Berkeley, where, earlier this year his presence led to full-blown riots from AntiFa thugs.
“In light of recent controversies, I am planning a huge multi-day event called MILO’S FREE SPEECH WEEK in Berkeley later this year,” states the press release. “We will hold talks and rallies and throw massive parties, all in the name of free expression and the First Amendment. All will be welcome, regardless of political affiliation.”
MILO warned of the threat to free speech in America today and outlined exactly how he plans to fight it. “Free speech has never been more under threat in America — especially at the supposed home of the free speech movement. I will bring activists, writers, artists, politicians, YouTubers, veterans and drag queens from across the ideological spectrum to lecture, march, and party.”
“MILO’S FREE SPEECH WEEK will include events on the UC Berkeley campus. We will stand united against the “progressive” Left. We will loudly reject the venomous hectoring and moral hypocrisy of social justice warriors. Free speech belongs to everyone — not just the spoilt brats of the academy.”

Yiannopoulos wouldn’t say who is backing the effort, financially or otherwise, nor would he say which, if any, student group has invited him to speak at Berkeley.
Milo Yiannopoulos is plotting his comeback, allegedly to take place at UC Berkeley, whether university administrators like it or not.
“In light of recent controversies, I am planning a huge multiday event called Milo’s Free Speech Week in Berkeley later this year. We will hold talks and rallies and throw massive parties, all in the name of free expression,” Yiannopoulos said on his Facebook page Friday.
Yiannopoulos wouldn’t say who is backing the effort, financially or otherwise, nor would he say which, if any, student group has invited him to speak at Berkeley. When he was last set to speak there in February, protesters set fires, threw rocks and attacked fans, and the UC Police Department shut down the event.
Administrators are preparing for a similar reception for Ann Coulter when she attempts to speak on Thursday even after administrators told her she didn’t have permission to do so and moved her event to a different venue in the following week.
