Milo Yiannopoulo's career hit a new hit on Saturday when the Australian government interrupted a visa it had granted a week ago to the heavily indebted right-wing for a talking tour scheduled later in year.
Australia banned Yiannopoulos over comments he made on Facebook about the Islamophobic terrorist attack at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, who killed 49 people and left 39 others seriously injured during Friday prayers, including children.
In a Facebook post, Yiannopoulos considered the radicalism behind the attack, carried out by a 28-year-old white racist Australian, on the left-leaning progressive. He called Islam a "barbaric, extraterrestrial religious" culture.
Yiannopoulos also defended right-commenter Candace Owens, whom the Christchurch terrorist named in a 74-page "manifesto" he published online before performing the attacks.
"Whatever you think of her, Candace Owens had nothing to do with what happened in New Zealand. People are not radicalized by their own side. They will be shot to the far right, RIGHT LEFT, not by others to the right, "Yiannopoulos wrote.
He also said that he had spent his "entire career condemning the political violence." But he added: "Attacks So this is happening to the establishment and mollycodle's extremist Leftism and barbaric, alien religious cultures. Not when somebody dares to point it out. "
Australia's Home Affairs Department had already planned to deny Yiannopoulos a visa, citing violent protests during a previous speaking tour in 2017 and earlier Islamophobic comments, according to Sydney Morning Herald . However, after criticism from conservative media and parliamentary MPs, immigration minister David Coleman intervened and personally approved the visa, the newspaper said.
But Coleman quickly returned from Yiannopoulo's recent comments, which he called "scary". The Minister called the Christchurch attack "an act of pure evil" against "Muslims who peacefully practice their religion", according to The Guardian and added that Yiannopoulo's statements would "detest hatred and division".
Yiannopoulos, forever the self-confessed troll, grabbed the announcement to play the victim in even more statements on Facebook.
"I expressed condemned violence. I said we are rightly abstaining from racists. I pointed out the inconvenient fact that it is left that commits the majority of political violence. And I criticized the facility for pandering to Islamic fundamentalism. So Australia banned me again, "he whined.
It has not gone well for the former Breitbart editor, who allegedly is at least $ 2 million in debt. In December, an attempt on crowdfunding with Patreon ended to start Yiannopoulos from the site. Earlier this month, he auctioned a giant picture of himself and said he moved and the portrait would not "survive the truck ride."
] In addition to Yiannopoulos, Australia also banned former Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes, WikiLeaks whistleblower Chelsea Manning and British Holocaust denier David Icke.
