Right wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos has chosen to target Aboriginal people and culture as part of his tour around Australia.
In Perth over the weekend Milo ridiculed Aboriginal art, history and way of life as a centre-point of his show. These actions would be career suicide for any other public figure, but for Milo, he makes a living by being controversial and feeding his right wing audience with hate. This hate has seen Milo banned from various cities, universities and countries around the world.
This is what the likes of Cory Bernardi and Mark Latham are celebrating. A small taste of Milo's 'show' in Perth last night. Warning: it tastes foul!Please sign the petition asking for him to be banned from speaking at Parliament House: https://www.change.org/p/senate-president-ban-milo-yiannopoulos-from-speaking-at-parliament-house

This speech which aims to ridicule a single race of people is an obvious breach of the racial discrimination act, however Western Australia is the only state that gives special exception to verbal comments. It is unlikely we will see a repeat of those comments during his next shows in Sydney and the Gold Coast.
Milo lives life while constantly looking over his shoulder. All of his shows are held in undisclosed locations out of fear for payback. The reaction from in our communities has been largely indifferent. Why do we need to prove ourselves to such an ignorant person. One brother summed it up best by saying that Milo is nothing more than a useful reminder to teach our kids about safe sex.
Incredibly, it appears that Milo has an invitation to speak at Parliament House which is an opportunity that many Indigenous people are denied. There is currently an online petition with over 15,000 people calling for this to be stopped.
