Controversy Cultivated Online Before Milo Yiannopoulos ...

Controversy around Milo Yiannopoulos' Australia visit is being cultivated by Mark Latham's alt-right linked outfit before the internet personality has even arrived in the country.

With fewer than 1000 names on a petition to ban Yiannopoulos because the "clear risk that members of the public will react adversely to his presence", the former Labor leader has issued a call to fight the effort.

"Milo Yiannopoulos is coming to Australia in early December but anti-free speech extremists want to stop him from entering the country," Latham posted on Facebook. "He criticises lunatic feminists, cultural Marxists, Islamists and the politically correct. And that's why they want to keep him out."

In making his pitch to the public, Latham posted the link "Don't Ban Milo", which was purchased by Rebel News Network only five days after the tour was first publicised, in other words, before any sizeable outrage built.
