Salon Removes Pro-Pedophilia Articles Following Milo Controversy
(Last Updated On: February 21, 2017)

An interview with Breitbart journalist Milo Yiannopoulos on a Drunken Peasants stream back on January 4th, 2016 tackled some controversial subject matter revolving around pedophilia, hebephilia and ephebophilia. Recently, the media brought up the subject matter for public display, resulting in Milo’s book “Dangerous” being dropped by publishers Simon & Schuster, as revealed on his Facebook page.

Salon didn’t hesitate to take Milo to task for his views and provocateur status by hammering home that the Conservative Political Action Committee also broke ties with Milo, canceling his appearance to give the keynote speech following his comments that described his life experiences with homosexuality on the Drunken Peasants YouTube stream.

The real news, however, is that during Salon’s attempted virtue signaling against one of their biggest antagonists, they also opted to do some house cleaning in the form of removing and rewriting the history of their own stance on pedophilia. In fact, they had previously hosted pro-pedophile content, in an attempt to help normalize the views on pedophilia.

Various articles from author Todd Nickerson were published on the platform, one was titled “I’m a pedophile, but not a monster”, from September 21st, 2015.

After receiving lots of criticisms from the Conservative front, including being called out by pundits and platforms like Mike Cernovich, Breitbart and Info Wars, Nickerson had another piece published as a follow-up on September 30th, 2015 entitled “I’m a pedophile, you’re the monsters: My week inside the vile right-wing hate machine “.

If you attempt to go to any of the links now, Salon redirects you to their Life Stories category.

Someone responded to a Twitter post from journalist Ian Miles Cheong – who originally spotted Salon’s stealth edits – noting that Salon actually didn’t delete all of their pro-pedophile content. There’s still an article up right now by Debra W. Soh from October 27th, 2015 entitled “The pedophile I could not help: He was not a monster or a molester. The system destroyed him anyway”.

Meanwhile, if you attempt to check the catalog history of anything published by Todd Nickerson on Salon, the profile page comes up empty.

[Update: According to writer Nick Monroe, the articles were actually removed in late January. However, an anonymous user posted up on the /po/ board that all of this was part of a coordinated plan that took place in a secret mailing list by journalists.]

Various sites who adopt regressive politics and maintain a stance as Social Justice Warriors, have been found to have supported, promoted or defended pedophilia, which might explain why so many of the regressive SJW sites took offense to and have attacked people willing to investigate #PizzaGate. Some of these same sites are now attacking Milo Yiannopoulos for what they’re claiming to be a “pro-pedophilia” stance. Meanwhile, Milo made a post on Facebook explaining that he does not support pedophilia and finds adults who do sexually abuse kids to be disgusting.

    Fencing Bear at Prayer : “Everybody hates a bully, or so we say. Yesterday, the national media bullied into silence a young man who had risen to fame speaking to audiences of young women and men about the lies that the grown-ups had told them for decades……….Sometimes people would ask him, “How can you call yourself Catholic when you are gay?” To which he would reply: “What else would I be?! I’m a sinner.” At which the audience would laugh, as the young man died just a little more inside. Because he meant it. He never lied. Not like the priest who had taught him to suck dick when he was a teen-ager. Not like the many lovers he had had since. Not like the movement supporting his lifestyle, who had bullied and lied its way into the mainstream culture over the course of his life, so that even to suggest that he was hurting was cause for ridicule and shame………..Shame on all of you. You spineless cunts. The bullies are YOU.” : http://fencingbearatprayer.blogspot.com.au/

    i saw “Milo Yanopoulos pedophilia ” at a banner on bbc and i was like “dafuq dat fabulous fagot did again?”

  • I wouldn’t be surprised if todd nickerson gets arrested as a pedophile because of this.

  • Gozu Tennoh

    Most liberals can probably be shaken from thier indoctrination. The warped ones that support/partake in harming kids, only death is suitable for them.

  • David Gray

    I think Milo deserves some criticism. Maybe a lot.
    I do think the reaction here has been retarded, considering just how hypocritical it is.
    Anybody that TALKS about what is done and WIDELY known about in “celebrity” circles is either ignored or attacked.
    I don’t think it’s even about protecting perpetrators, as it is cognitive dissonance. They NEED to protect themselves from acknowledging that these crimes ARE ignored, covered up or even excused BY THEM.

  • Jennifer

    I love how he is on full defense and damage control mode; trying to retcon what he said now. Too late man, you already said that shit. Sicko.

    • LunarArchivist

      I regret that I have but one downvote to give.

      • Jennifer

        D’aw, I upset a Milo fan. Guy’s not a journalist, he’s a drama celebrity. He’s in it for the fame. His fan numbers probably dropped so he said this to get attention. The guy is a clown and so aren’t all the idiots who follow him.

        • His fan numbers probably dropped so he said this to get attention.

          The comments the media are excoriating him for are over a year old (from January, 2016 to be exact). He’s said far more inflammatory things since then and has almost close to 2 million Facebook fans.

          • Jennifer

            Negative publicity is still publicity. There is plenty of far-gone nut-jobs who probably like his ideals, and support pedophilia. I mean we are talking about the same pool of people who voted Trump for president.

            And to be fair, 2 million FB fans isn’t that much when compared to other people. It is literally representative of 0.0003% of the Earth’s population. There is far, far more journalist (if you can even call Milo that) with way more followers than him. Again, he’s just a drama queen. He probably said it for a publicity stunt for attention.

          • There is plenty of far-gone nut-jobs who probably like his ideals, and support pedophilia.

            I was pretty sure his side is the one who has been going on about #PizzaGate. Oxymoron much?

            I mean we are talking about the same pool of people who voted Trump for president.

            So Trump supporters support pedophilia? Got it.

            It is literally representative of 0.0003% of the Earth’s population.

            Well hot dang, everything is relatively small if we’re going to reduce the ratio to that figure. Heck, slaves and Jews got nothing to complain about when you factor in how many of them died compared to all the humans who died before them, amirite?

          • Jennifer

            You really like twisting people’s words to suit your argument, don’t you?

          • Not at all, but I do like rustling jimmies.

          • Jennifer

            Who’s jimmies are you rustling, because it isn’t anyone around here.

          • Hm, well, you’re on the defensive so I would count that as jimmies rustled, knickers nicked, breeches breached, and undies usurped.

            However, I’ll admit that I’ve failed to rustle in the same way that @LunarArchivist:disqus seems to be getting things done, so I’ll leave it him to keep cooking the sexual tension in a kettle like Milo likes to get diddled by priests.

        • LunarArchivist

          Not a huge fan of the guy’s politics, to be honest, but our exchanges have been cordial and respectful.

          But then, SJWs don’t seem to understand that I don’t have to like him in order to hate scum like you.

          • Jennifer

            Hah, you are such a child.

            “our exchanges have been cordial and respectful”
            Yeah, like you ever talked to the guy. Don’t try to put yourself on a pedestal. You call me a scum, but you can’t say anything without projecting your own insecurities on me. I think you are just some measly nobody, this is literally your first post in a year. You seriously came out of the woodwork to support this degenerate, and you want to throw insults at me? Yeah, ok. :’D

            Also, SJW as an insult. Classy. I’m the furthest thing from a SJW you can find. Unless you support pedophilia and you think I’m a SJW because I say it is gross.

          • lol

            It has nothing to do with your actual beliefs… anyone with a pussy is an SJW now. /s

          • Jennifer

            Pretty much. Those two are just having a field day harassing my comments. Typical Milo supporters. They believe the most far-fetched things and anyone that disagrees is a hateful SJW, which is really ironic looking at the way they behave.

          • “Harassing” your comments?

            Go back to Tumblr, you snowflake.

          • Jennifer

            Who the fuck uses Tumblr? Only snowflakes around here is your cheesy ass insults.

          • LunarArchivist

            “Hah, you are such a child.”

            Says the bitchy poster cluttering up the comments section.

            “Yeah, like you ever talked to the guy. Don’t try to put yourself on a pedestal.”

            I fail to see how interacting with Milo Yiannopoulos counts as anything other than interacting with Milo Yiannopoulos. I’m just recounting what happened. Back when GamerGate first started, he requested that supporters submit investigative topics to him. I did, we had a brief back and forth by e-mail, that’s it. I’ve had passing interactions with celebrities far more noteworthy than him. If this were some macho pissing contest, I’d bring up the time I asked Summer Glau on a date.

            “I think you are just some measly nobody, this is literally your first post in a year.”

            Ooh…so you’re not just a bitch, you’re a stalker! I didn’t know you cared. 😀

            And I’m not in GamerGate to become e-famous. I’m just the unofficial leader of their Anti-CBC Division. 🙂

            “Also, SJW as an insult. Classy. I’m the furthest thing from a SJW you can find. Unless you support pedophilia and you think I’m a SJW because I say it is gross.”

            No, I think you’re an SJW because you support their tactics of “the ends justify the means”. If you wanted to attack Milo for his questionable statements about transsexuals or his infamous online spare with Liana K., by all means, have at it. Those criticisms would have merit. In this case, however, when taken in proper context, he’s only guilty of making idiotic statements. If you want to crucify him, I want it to be for something he actually did, and not for some manufactured character assassination point.

          • Jennifer

            “If you want to crucify him, I want it to be for something he actually did, and not for some manufactured character assassination point.”

            He resigned today because he knows he was wrong.

      • lol…. someone also downvoted your comment about giving a downvote. Too bad Disqus doesn’t let everyone see how many downvotes they get; they gotta keep everyone feeling special.

        • Jennifer

          Yeah it’d be nice to know. That way I can see how many of Milo’s little sheepy I pissed off and downvoted my comment.

  • Disqusted

    What? Milo is a pedo now, too? So he’s a Nazi White Supremacist Racist Misogynist, etc, etc, + Pedo. Stay tuned for the next typical buzzword label. The left/liberals/assholes/whatever the hell they call themselves/whatever the hell people want to call them literally have no validity and can only resort to constantly smearing and slandering everyone.

    Also, Salon sucks. They are assholes full of shit who constantly lie. It’s particularly disgusting that they’re so quick to switch sides, just to push an agenda/narrative/smear campaign. So full of shit.

    I understand there are pedos who can’t help it, and don’t act upon it, but those articles by Todd Dickyourson look like they’re total bullshit. “Oh noes, right-wingers hate me!” as if pedophilia is somehow related to left/right wing nonsense. He may as well write articles about how he tripped and fell, and it was all the right-wing’s fault. Or Russia’s. Or Trump’s. Whoever they like to demonize on the day. They probably start each day throwing darts to decide who to smear and slander.

  • Keystone

    Absolute rag staffed by absolute wastes of flesh.

    That said, I am interested in knowing what the MSM calls their version of GameJournoPros, because it is dead fucking obvious at this point that it exists (as if it wasn’t obvious already). Regardless of what you think of Milo, all these outlets hitting him on this controversy at the exact same time is not a coincidence.

    • Disqusted

      “Kid Rapist Pros”. Because they are.

      Some general thoughts on this:

      People are saying Salon deleted their pro-pedo articles before this current Milo controversy. To me, it doesn’t matter. They pushed hard for pedos in the past, but have flipped now only because one of their most powerful enemies, Milo, is being smeared as being a pedo. It’s political, and the timing of all this is suspicious as all hell.

      Neocons, leftists, conservatives, the alt-right, and “anti-SJWs” all hate Milo. Before this even happened, I can’t recall how many people have spent considerable amount of time on Tweets crying about Milo or saying off their bullshit by saying “I don’t agree with Milo…” or “I hate Milo…” before conceding he was right about something or had been wronged. But they waited for the day when they could really lay into him with all the others, and the past couple of days, they have. If you don’t like what a guy says, I guess you can just wait until the establishment comes after him to show your true colors.

      As for Milo, I remember him talking about being molested by a priest. He made it out to seem like he, the kid, was the “predator” or “on the prowl” or something like that. I thought he was either joking or something really did happen to him and he was trying to minimize what happened. I have no clue if it really did happen, but if it did, it really shows why child predators are dangerous. They go after the most fragile people in society, kids, and break them in a way in can never be healed. If Milo was molested, he is now getting destroyed because he tried to joke away the pain.

      • People are saying Salon deleted their pro-pedo articles before this current Milo controversy.

        Nope, they still deleted it after the Milo controversy. The show originally aired last year in January, they deleted the articles this year in January. So it was still technically after — only it was coordinated to be out of the search engine cache by the time they readied their attack on Milo just recently.

        • Hawk Hopper

          So, to be clear, Salon didn’t delete those articles until after Milo made his comments that now have him in hot water? And Salon did that so that when people checked the cache after this blew up and they wouldn’t be able to see that Salon ran pro-pedo pieces?

          Another thing I’m wondering about is Milo said that a priest molested him. I wonder if that’s the actual reason conservatives have spun this to make Milo seem like the bad guy, because conservatives want to protect the church. I mean Republicans had a child predator like Dennis Hastert within their ranks for years.

          • I wonder if that’s the actual reason conservatives have spun this to make Milo seem like the bad guy, because conservatives want to protect the church.

            Seems likely. Milo is a provocateur aimed at getting plebs to think. The establishment maintains the status quo keeping people from thinking. He’s dangerous to all sides.

            I’m surprised he hasn’t been assassinated yet.

            And Salon did that so that when people checked the cache after this blew up and they wouldn’t be able to see that Salon ran pro-pedo pieces?

            Yeah… but they’re idiots. The internet never forgets.

        • Alistair

          Question is that site is a pro-Pedo site that isnt moral acceptable right.

          The question is what SJWs views on pro-Pedo then?

          As i never hear them screaming about it it very unmoral. Oh wait games that depict fictional characters in a certain way is unmoral.

          Gamers are a problem according to them of being unmoral.

          Time and time again, these people suppose to be crusade against all unmoral know of pedos, have pedos friends and think consent should be lower.

          Support the minority the gays, les etc etc and milo is one and they hate his guts.

          Shows how out of touch they are.

  • Alex Johnson

    The timing of this is impeccable too…

  • anopolis

    I don’t mind Milo, hell i almost like the guy. he’s alright for a …well…he’s an odd duck. However, those “people” the wrote those salon articles, they’re monsters alright, sick twisted vile chunks of human waste. The thought that there are those in my damn country that read that shit makes me ill. How in the HELL could anyone ever, even remotely consider the vulgar shit they write is decent is beyond anything I’m willing to fathom. they’re cancer.

    • Disqusted

      My impression is Milo is funny, but often naive. Not sure just how opportunistic he is, but I’m sure he loves the attention, too.

      Something worth mentioning:
      Back when GamerGate was young, Niero of Destructoid tried to smear Milo by calling him a homophobe. When he realized Milo is homosexual, Niero retracted and deleted his Twitter.

      Now the mainstream news media is using the same smears, but they’re not retracting at all. That’s how much dirtier and disgusting they are than the already corrupt and SJW-infested gaming news sites.

      It also gives you an idea of just how big this all is, and what’s at stake.
