Right-wing commentator and controversial political figure Milo Yiannopoulos has cited Australia as the last remaining bastion of free speech.
The comments came as Mr Yiannopoulos was promoting his upcoming book in an interview with Sky News on Friday, aptly named ‘Australia, You’re My Only Hope’.
Mr Yiannopoulos outlined what he perceives to be the ‘cancers’ affecting Australian society; namely feminism and political correctness.

‘Australia You’re My Only Hope’: Yiannopoulos has called his upcoming book a ‘last ditch attempt’ to get Australians to stand up to left-wing ‘cancers’ (pictured: ‘Dangerous’ by Milo Yiannopoulos)
During the interview, he urged Australians to stand up to these ‘cancers’ of public life which he claimed have already ‘utterly ruined’ the public square in Europe and America.
‘Australia is the one last remaining bastion of free speech where people can actually crack a joke and not get fired,’ Yiannopoulos stated.
The British alt-righter claimed his new book is a ‘last ditch attempt’ to urge the Australian public to stand up to what he perceives to be the ‘toxins’ of left-wing society.
Yiannopoulos has announced a tour of seven shows down under at the end of November, in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
His tour will take place despite owing a reported $50,000 to the Victorian government for unpaid police expenses.
He will be joined by US right-winger Ann Coulter.
The pair have promoted their tour as ‘saving Australia from a full-frontal assault by politically-correct left-wing loonies.’
