Freedom of Speech but not Freedom of Association?

Milo Yiannopoulos, the gay conservative provocateur plans to sue Simon & Schuster for $10 million because they decided not to go ahead and publish his book, Dangerous.  

Yiannopoulos made a remark in 2016 which appeared to endorse gay sex between 13-year-old boys and adult men. It was then that the publisher decided he was too volatile and that it would be a wise business decision not to publish his book--that's their right and they are under no obligation to go beyond the $250,000 cash advance.

"I am suing Simon & Schuster for $10 million," Yiannopoulos said in a livestream promoting Milo Inc., his new venture. "I want to send them a message that they can never again do this to a libertarian or a conservative."

Interesting how he wants to force Simon & Schuster to publish his (symbolic) "gay wedding cake" which goes against the free trade and free association philosophy he pretends to espouse as a conservative/libertarian.

Yiannopoulos lost a primo speaking event  at CPAC over the pederasty statement but he announced last month that he raised $12 million for his new business venture and plans to publish his book through his own label, called Dangerous Books. 

He also plans to begin a new nationwide college tour he calls "Troll Academy." 

I stand behind the publisher's right not to take him on as a client, but I believe the advance he received is his. 

Finally, Milo now refers to Simon & Schuster as a leftist organization, but let's remember, he was going to have them publish his book and they agreed to it, so how far left are they really?
