Fascist “Speech” Week has lost its official sponsorship. This is very positive, but much damage has already been done and the fight is far from over. In the words of UC Berkeley’s spokesperson, Dan Mogulof, the campus extended the deadlines to the Berkeley Patriot student group several times to accommodate them and “spent an incredible amount of time and energy trying to facilitate, even support” (emphasis ours) the efforts by students to put on the Fascist “Speech” Week. In other words, UC Berkeley put an incredible amount of energy into supporting and legitimizing white supremacy, vicious anti-Muslim bigotry, hatred towards women, xenophobia and witch-hunts against professors on campus.

Yet, even this level of craven capitulation and collaboration by the administration did not satisfy the fascists. Milo Yiannopoulos and the Berkeley Patriot are taking measures to sue the school and Milo says he will still show up on Sproul Plaza on Sunday at noon to spew his bigotry. All this shows that fascists cannot be appeased or placated, they must be directly politically confronted, resisted, and not only driven from campus but driven from power. This is the pledge that makes to the people of the world.

Milo and his band of white supremacists, internet trolls, woman-haters, Muslim-bashers, xenophobes and fascists are NOT “victims.” They are victimizers. This is true not just because they intentionally doxx and sow terror against undocumented students, trans people, academics who challenge white supremacy, women and more, but most of all because they are acting as ideological hitmen for the fascists in power. Their fascist views are not being “suppressed,” they are being put forward from the biggest and most powerful bully pulpit in the world: the White House. Further, the fascist Trump/Pence Regime is using the full power of the state to not just put these ideas forward, but to implement them to terrorize immigrants, ban Muslims, threaten nuclear destruction of North Korea, threaten the free speech of people like Colin Kaepernick who stand against white supremacy, and impose fascism in America.

As such, will be there to politically resist any attempted presence by Milo on campus. Specifically, we will be there – and we call on everyone of conscience to be there with us – on Sproul Plaza at 10:00 am on Sunday, September 24, to counter Milo’s attempts to spew his poison on Sproul Plaza at noon. At the same time, we will step up our efforts to mobilize many thousands to take to the streets around this country starting November 4th and going day after day, and night after night, growing eventually to millions demanding: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go! In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!
