Two weeks ago the Australian government banned homocon Milo Yiannopoulos from entering the country over anti-Semitic comments and unpaid bills owed to police for his 2017 visit, which drew hundreds of protesters. The ban was going to be reversed after pressure from right wing lawmakers until last night.
ABC News Australia reports:
Milo Yiannopoulos has been banned from entering Australia for a tour following his comments regarding the Christchurch terror attack. Immigration Minister David Coleman has described the attack, in which 49 people were killed and 42 injured, as an “act of pure evil” as he confirmed Yiannopoulos would not be allowed to enter the country.
“Yiannopoulos’s comments on social media regarding the Christchurch terror attack are appalling and foment hatred and division,” Mr Coleman said. Yiannopoulos had described Islam as a “barbaric, alien” religious culture on social media overnight after the terror incident, prompting the Government’s change of heart.

Milo banned. Good. His overnight comments weren’t that different from how he has always behaved. There was already enough evidence to ban him which is why the department had already recommended he be banned. The Australian tours for the world’s hate speakers must stop. https://t.co/gh5ZrQRiU7
