The Black Sheep Interviews UCSB College Republicans About Recent Milo Yiannopoulos Statements

author-pic at UC Santa Barbara  

Earlier this quarter UCSB College Republicans notoriously invited Milo Yiannopoulos to UC Santa Barbara’s campus to talk. “It’s important to hear both sides,” they cried in Facebook comments when the event was ultimately cancelled. Despite UCSB College Republicans caring more to “drink liberal tears” and fetishize anti-PC culture than having an actual discussion (like, maybe, invite a right leaning economist or something!), they tightened their grip on following Milo and decrying campus liberals for cheering the cancellation of the speech. 

Recently, however, an interview surfaced in which Milo Yiannopoulos seemed to encourage and promote pedophilia. This is apparently where the right draws the line, so we wanted to reach out to UCSB College Republicans to see if they still stand behind their hero. They didn’t respond. And since they got mad at us about a satirical article, we didn’t want to mislead anybody with what was said or not said. Here’s our full interview below:

The Black Sheep: Hi guys, just wanted to follow up on if you had any statement prepared or anything you wanted to say now that the recent Milo interview has surfaced. Would you say, now you maybe regret bringing such a dickhead to campus?

UCSB College Republicans: 

The Black Sheep: Hmm, interesting. Your silence on the matter says a lot. If you draw the line at pro-pedophilia and not, say women’s rights, can you give any insight into that decision?

UCSB College Republicans: 

TBS: Ok. And would you say that, now that you’re assumedly distancing yourself from Milo, saying things that are sexually charged, like admitting to sexual harassment, should be taken seriously? 

UCSB College Republicans: 

TBSSo when it comes to pedophilia, do you still think it’s important to hear both sides? 

UCSB College Republicans: 

TBSDo you have any thoughts on the matter that, generally, when someone is an acidic asshole with inhumane thoughts, there’s probably something deeper there that should be avoided, especially in regards to spreading or normalizing those ideals? 

UCSB College Republicans: 

TBS: Given your royal treatment of him last time he was here, if you still stand with Milo, does that mean you will also begin kissing kids in solidarity with him?

UCSB College Republicans: 

Well folks, it was a telling interview. If you’re part of the UCSB College Republicans and still want a chance to answer these questions, please email us at [email protected], and we’ll update this post.
