    What a joke CPAC has become. This guy is a huckster who never should have been invited in the first place. Trump is expected to speak there. Since he went after Berkley and threatened to cut their funding I presume he will no longer be speaking at CPAC?

    Big difference between cancelling someone simply because they don't adhere to your political philosophy and cancelling someone because they are promoting a criminal act.

    Perhaps now the rest of the world will see what a dumpster fire that lad is.

    "We should have kept the oil, but, OK, maybe we'll have another chance" - Trump

    A president advocating an international crime, what say you?

    I think they are in Hillary mode deleting their resident pedos articles.

    Salon has a self confessed pedophile that writes articles defending and even promoting pedophilia as something that is natural.

    It'll be a few, but I will try to track them down.

    Todd Nickerson. He wrote two or three articles on it.

    I've been thinking. Trump's now infamous "grab em by the *****" was normalised very quickly. Will the GOP try to normalise Milo Yiannopoulos' comments about raping underage boys? It looks like they dont want that behaviour, so it's good to know there is a line they won't cross with free speech. Insulting women, minorities, etc is okay - comments about raping kids is not.

    Souces as requested.

    A search from salon's website that shows no topics on Todd Nickerson. @webbuzz posted a screen cap from salon's Twitter promoting a story of his.
    3.

    I would link to his actual salon articles but it's kind of hard when they have seemingly deleted all of his content.

    But anywho. I think what some right wing people now need to learn is that, for example that Salon chap, having attractions to kids and not acting on them or downloading porn related to it etc is okay - advocating that kids should be raped is not okay. That's deplorable behaviour.

    What does that have to do with Hillary? I've never heard of this guy before so I'm kind of at a loss for words.

    If you're asking how salon came up re-read the thread.

    I was just wondering if you were saying this guy from salon had a role in the Hillary campaign, wasn't sure.

    No, just the joke about deleting things.

    Would have thought the left would be cheering his comments. Maybe he needs to actually act on it like Polanski and Hollywood before he gains acceptance.
