USA: Seven arrested as clashes break out after Milo speaks at Cal State Fullerton

Dozens of people protested a speech by controversial right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos at California State University in Fullerton on Tuesday. Clashes between the Englishman’s supporters, around 600 attended the event, and his opponents led to at least seven arrests, according to the university. In his speech, Yiannopoulos drew attention to situation of politically conservative students... Еще on campus. «When it comes to oppressed communities and marginalised groups, there is no tribe in America at greater risk — physical and existential risk — than the campus conservative», he said. He also mentioned Hollywood's widening sexual harassment crisis, including recent events regarding actor Kevin Spacey and the alleged assault of a 14-year-old boy. Yiannopoulos himself was forced to resign from right-wing news outlet Breitbart in February 2017 following comments being published online in which he appeared to defend paedophiles by saying sexual relationships between 13-year-old boys and adult men and women can «happen perfectly consensually». «Regardless, if anyone agrees with what he does, what he says, his life choices, he has a right as an American citizen to be able to speak and to be able have that freedom,” argued Stephen, a Milo fan, although Yiannopoulos does not currently hold US citizenship.
