British provocateur and former Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos held a rally in New York City Thursday morning to protest a college commencement speech scheduled to be delivered by controversial Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour.

Yinnapolous, who himself became embroiled in a shocking scandal earlier this year after video emerged purportedly showing the UK media star provide a justification for pedophilia, set up the demonstration on a busy Manhattan street where dozens of attendees braved rainy weather. 

For over 20-minutes, Yiannopoulos blasted the Brooklyn-born Sarsour, at one point describing her as a "Jew-hating ticking time bomb."

Sarsour is scheduled to deliver a speech for graduating students of CUNY later on Thursday. The mother of four gained vast media attention earlier this year after helping organize the Women's March just one day after US President Donald Trump's January 20 inauguration.

"I believe that Linda Sarsour should be allowed to speak so her words are broadcast far and wide. I want America to hear her,"  Yiannopoulos told the crowd.
