I had never heard of Milo Yiannopoulos, until his current visit to Australia. He has got a lot of media coverage.

He has been subject to a lot of violent protests and the Greens want him banned from entering Federal Parliament.

I now have seen some of his speeches on youtube, and really I see him as nothing more than a comedian, an attention seeker and I think some of his comments are funny and nothing short of a joke.

Why are some people though taking him so seriously and raising concerns about limiting freedom of speech?

Probably because they want to limit freedom of speech.

I take it you weren't among the queued public who were waiting to enjoy a show in Melbourne, only to be subjected to foul abuse and pelted with rocks and even a metal street sign?

Nathan, If you read some of the interviews with him, especially older ones, you'll find that he admits that it's an act. It's a character he created. What's hard to tell is whether he's in it for the notoriety and the money, or whether it's a genuine act of satirical theatre. If it started as the latter, it may now be difficult for him to admit it was all a setup to satirise right wing views, because a lot of people would be very angry.

I think the point is that most people protesting against Milo have never heard him actually speak, I think that what they are most offended that a half Jewish gay guy married to a black man would dare to say what he does. That what he says is mostly true is what really infuriates them.

The left whinge are all about censorship.
