There was quite an uproar over the weekend regarding resurfaced audio of right-leaning provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos seemingly defending or excusing sexual relationships between an adult and a child.
The sharp controversy resulted in Milo being uninvited from speaking at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference, a book deal being cancelled and his resignation from Breitbart News, results which liberal comedian Bill Maher has now taken credit for, according to The New York Times.
Maher, who had recently faced heavy criticism from the left for inviting Milo onto his HBO program, seemed to take credit for Milo’s swift public downfall, insinuating he helped expose him by stating, “I said, specifically, sunlight is the best disinfectant.”
“Then we had Milo on, despite the fact that many people said, ‘Oh, how dare you give a platform to this man’,” Maher said. “What I think people saw was an emotionally needy Ann Coulter wannabe, trying to make a buck off of the left’s propensity for outrage.”
“And by the end of the weekend, by dinnertime Monday, he’s dropped as a speaker at CPAC. Then he’s dropped by Breitbart, and his book deal falls through. As I say, sunlight is the best disinfectant,” Maher added. “You’re welcome.”
Unfortunately for Maher, though, that disinfecting sunlight has just been shined in his direction, and it has revealed remarks made by Maher that bear a striking similarity to the ones that brought Milo so much trouble.
Mic reported that Maher made statements seemingly in defense of pedophilia on at least two occasions in the past, once in a 2007 interview with Playboy, and prior to that on his “Politically Incorrect” program in 1998, with the sole difference being Maher referenced adult females having relations with young boys versus Milo’s referencing adult men and young boys.
You can watch a clip from Maher’s 1998 program in which he defended the actions of teacher Mary Key Letourneau, who had been convicted and imprisoned after becoming impregnated by her then-12-year-old student, Vili Fualaau. (WARNING: The subject matter of the video will be disturbing to some readers, and the language of the tweet is vulgar as well.)

It should go without saying that, regardless of personal opinion on the matter, it is quite clear that it is against the law for adults to engage in sexual relationships with minors, whether they be small innocent children or easily manipulated teenagers going through puberty with more hormones than sense.
For Maher to take credit for helping expose Milo’s unacceptable views on the matter while holding strikingly similar views himself is the height of liberal hypocrisy and must be called out and condemned.
