Milo Yiannopoulos Headlines Pamela Geller’s #CancelSarsour Protest

Milo Yiannopoulos will headline a protest this month against Linda Sarsour and the City University of New York’s invitation for her to give the commencement address at a graduation ceremony for public health graduate students.

Organized by far-right provocateur Pamela Geller, the demonstration is targeting the Muslim civil rights activist for her previous hostility toward Israel and defense of Islamic, or Sharia law.

“Such sanction is so malignant and so evil. it cannot be ignored. There is a responsibility for the time we are living in,” wrote Geller, in a press release announcing the news.

Other speakers will include Geller and New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who represents the Hasidic neighborhood of Borough Park.

Yiannopoulous is beginning to reemerge after his career took a nosedive in February, following the surfacing of old audio tape in which he defended pedophilia.

The controversy led him to resign as a pundit at Breitbart, lose a speaking appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference and spurred the cancellation of a lucrative book deal with Simon & Schuster.
