Bill Maher, who received widespread criticism for hosting Yiannopoulos on his HBO show, defended the booking by arguing Milo's appearance actually exposed his views to a wider audience and hastened his downfall.

But Mike Cernovich, author of "MAGA Mindset: Making YOU and America Great Again" defended Yiannopoulos, offering him advice on how to weather the media firestorm and maintains that Milo's fall was due to a vast left-wing conspiracy:

The attack on Milo was coordinated with Jake Tapper and others within CNN. It was a clean operation—too clean, actually, which is a sign of deep state fingerprints... Anyone who opposes the pro-war, anti-West globalist agenda is going to face more attacks.

As other writers pointed out, Milo had expressed racist, misogynist, homophobic, Islamaphobic, and transphobic views for years—but promoting pedophilia turned out to be a bridge too far for his conservative base.

A platform of hatred. A plethora of racist, misogynistic and transphobic remarks. But through it all, many stood by far-right troll Milo Yiannopoulos, often defending his right to free speech. Over the weekend, however, the Breitbart editor finally crossed what may have seemed a non-existent line, sending the American Conservative Union, publishing house Simon & Schuster and others who once supported him running.The breaking point: defending pedophilia.

But Milo has already started his apology tour. He will likely self-publish his book. And some say there's still a big audience for his brand of outrage.

Milo is pretty confident this whole thing will blow over:

“The people whose views, concerns and fears I am articulating do not sip white wine and munch canapés in gilded salons. And they will not be defeated by the cocktail set running New York publishing. Nor will I.”

Others think his outrage tour is permanently over.

Writer Dave Holmes says Milo was using a tired strategy that was bound to give out in the end:

So we are, at least for the moment, finished with him. When and if he comes trolling back, remember this: Getting angry at Milo is like getting angry at the mannequin challenge. You can start a boycott, you can make a sign to hold at a protest, or you can wait 10 days. The brand is nothing but provocation, and provocation for its own sake is unsustainable.

Even some of his fans, and his former manager, agree—you don't make a comeback from being pro-molestation. Ask Denny Hastert and Mark Foley.
