Former Breitbart editor Yiannopoulos did not lose support for his ideas because he was no-platformed. He lost public support because he appeared to make comments endorsing paedophilia.
In reality, this case demonstrates why it is so important that the public engages in debate over inflammatory ideas and rejects the ones considered most abhorrent to it, as it did in the case of Yiannopoulos.
Only then can dangerous and harmful ideas be truly refuted and combatted. Without a public platform through which healthy debate can be engaged in, extreme ideas can go unchallenged in the corners of the web.
