Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos stopped by Thursday’s broadcast of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to discuss the recent hysteria he sparked at the University of California at Berkeley.
Yiannopoulos was scheduled to deliver the final lecture on his college tour Wednesday night before an impromptu snowstorm forced him to evacuate. (RELATED: ‘INFERNO’ — Milo Speech Cancelled After Rioters Set Campus Ablaze)
Carlson, founder of The Daily Caller, spent a large portion of the Thursday interview trying to define the “hate speech” Yiannopoulos’ critics accuse him of propagating
When pressed by Carlson, Yiannopoulos stated he has “no idea” what hate speech really is, and “I don’t think anybody else knows either,” he added.
“It seems to be speech that somebody doesn’t like somewhere a joke that’s wrong some thing that offends someone’s sensibilities or hurt feelings or politics or something,” the contentious author explained. “Certainly the Supreme Court doesn’t recognize it as any kind of speech that should be treated with any sort special reference.”
“Hate speech, to me, seems to be defined by the political left as anything we don’t like, anything that violates social justice doctrine — feminism, Black Lives Matter ideology — but it is not something I have ever heard effectively defined.”
