BREAKING: The Rebel's Lauren Southern escorted out of Los Angeles SlutWalk by police

Rebel Staff

The Rebel's Lauren Southern was ejected from the Amber Rose Slut Walk in Los Angeles today after asking tough questions to radical feminists and left-wing activists, who claim the west is in the grip of a "Rape Culture" and a male-dominated "Patriarchy."

Milo Yiannopoulos, a senior editor for Breitbart News, was also ejected from the event.

Police were called to the Slut Walk at approximately 1pm PT, where they were instructed by event organisers to escort Southern and Yiannopoulos from Pershing Square, LA, where the event was being held.

As event organisers were negotiating with Southern and Yiannopoulos, their pair's placards were grabbed and torn up by furious Slut Walk activists. One placard, held by Southern, was salvaged.

Event organisers had been alerted to the presence of Southern after an activist for Planned Parenthood began warning other Slut Walkers that a broadcaster from The Rebel was asking questions.

(Evidently, organizers were familiar with Southern's previous "Slut Walk" viral video for The Rebel. The June 2015 video depicting Southern's experiences at a Vancouver Slut Walk made international news and has received over 850,000 views to date.)

Shortly afterwards, an organiser for the LA Slut Walk informed Southern and Yiannopoulos that without a special press permit, they had to turn off their recording equipment or be removed.

When asked if they could film on a personal phone, as many other ticketed attendees were doing, they were also denied.

Southern and Yiannopoulos then unfurled protest signs reading "Regret is not rape" and "Rape Culture and Harry Potter -- both fantasy."

They were then set upon by angered Slut Walk activists who attempted to physically seize both signs.

Southern, Yiannopoulos and their crews were then escorted from the Slut Walk by L.A police.

In the end, Slut Walk activists, who claim to campaign against "heteronormative patriarchy", had succeeded in ejecting a female politician and a gay journalist from a political event.

Footage of the event will be uploaded on Monday.

Sorry, but doesn’t requiring a government issued or approved “special press permit” violate the very concept of freedom of the press?

Glenn: bad metaphor. I am writing to expose Lauren’s little theatrical games: Lady Godiva is famous for exposing herself.

Glenn, give it up. What level of “satisfaction” do the so-called “likeminded” demand, exactly? Interesting. Are you by change an AGW skeptic? If so, do you doubt the authority of an ostensible scientific consensus? If so, why the hell do you assume and argue based on alleged support for your opinions by a “likeminded … consensus” of Rebel commenters? You’re cracking up, take a break.

Really Jimmy, who was it that coined that bastardized of language homophobic or islamophobic , I’m sure it was not a conservative. I will bet that most conservatives are not afraid of either, leery maybe , afraid not so much. Like I say those who protect them with the zeal as those on the left , well I conclude that you do out of fear of reprisals. It’s ok to be scared Jimmy, of gays , terrorists, feminazis, and econuts because they like to bully people.

You are trying to unhorse Lady Godiva

How am I playing white knight exactly?
commented 2015-10-06 00:18:29 -0400

I am not evading – I am enjoying everyone’s delusional interpretation of Slut Walk.
commented 2015-10-06 00:17:34 -0400

Ya – that’s it. LOL.

I support gay people for example, because I actually support equal rights and gay marriage.

I know this is hard for you to understand.

Liza…..they fell silent….they muttered about the unfairness of the challenge….but they had no response to it….some straggler rear guard may come by to post an unopposed last word…..but Lauren and her supporters stated their dog in the race….and stated why they are white knights for Lady Lauren

Answer the question Jimbot, stop evading. Why do you defend the femnazis? What are you so afraid of? Or are you just chicken.

We know you love buffalo wings,2% milk, you are a dog man, sorry, dog person, but you will talk about kittens……
commented 2015-10-06 00:02:27 -0400
The fearful fall silent….these guys are true believers….

The " Jewish Police" of the Warsaw Ghetto were made up of Jews who bought into “the final solution”.

Kelvin….are you not curious as to why those who choose to defend the insanity find it defensible….and find those who would stop it to be somehow evil and wicked?

Glen, he is afraid of them. The same reason that he defends gays and Islam, he is the phobiest of the phobes. I figured this out quite awhile ago. That’s why lefties project this at everyone else you see because in reality they are inherently scared shitless to say anything to these special interest groups in fear of being marginalized as phobic.

Munch away and enjoy Jimmy

I love buffalo wings.

Jimmy….why don’t you tell us…..if you think it is worth our time or mental effort at all….and while you are at it…..
commented 2015-10-05 23:42:25 -0400

Tell me what Slut Walk is and why it was started. I want YOUR view.

Jimmy, kitten, milk brands are hard to understand, 1% 2% 4?

OK, let’s talk kittens – I have had a few kittens/cats in my life. Tell me about your kittens?

Slut walk fem’s and trolls have a lot in common, they steal causes to suit their purposes. They twist and skew the truth until it is unrecognisable. What on earth does slut walk really have to do with women’s rights or equal rights. Its about third wave fem’s herding the confused for the sake of their Marxist agenda, as well as creating a new’industry for the benefit of their leaders. It is all smoke and mirrors, subterfuge, designed to keep stupid people confused.
Trolls try to do the same thing.
Lauren is standing up to the bullies, and their lies. These bullies are cowards, and so are the authorities who removed them from public property, and so are our trolls.
It really does beg the question. What is your dog in the RACE, Jimbot, why do you defend the femnazis?

Are other people seeing hat I am seeing posted?

Jimmy, kittens, now! I couldn’t care less about you’re dog obsession.
commented 2015-10-05 23:17:47 -0400

But see, it’s nice to get to know the people that you are talking to everyday.
commented 2015-10-05 23:17:06 -0400

I am a dog person.

Jimmy, well now that you mention it lets talk about kittens!

No, I mean members.

But since you mentioned it – even moderators wouldn’t have a problem with Terry’s posts. Moderators typically only get involved when it become a huge problem. Not for a few sarcastic comments here and there.

Jimmy, you mean like moderators?
