ACU Rescinds Invitation to Milo Yiannopoulos

The American Conservative Union has decided to rescind its invitation to Milo Yiannopoulos due to his remarks some have perceived as endorsing molestation, but which he denies do so.

I think it goes without saying that he should not have been invited in the first place and ACU is now in the ironic position of having invited him in the name of free speech, but now rescinding the invitation in the name of some speech going too far.

Whoever made the initial call should probably also have their employment rescinded for having put ACU in this position in the first place. That invitation struck many conservatives as poor judgment before the videos even came out and now sets ACU up to be hypocritical on the defense of free speech.
