I see there are issues we agree on. This vile white supremacist, Milo Yiannopoulos, has been invited to UCLA by some fascist-leaning student organization. There’s a protest planned. Anyone in Los Angeles that opposes neo-Nazis should considered joining the protest.

In the past this racist, nativist, misogynist monster would not have been invited to UCLA, but for the intervention of alt-center University of California President, Janet Napolitano. It was her insistence that hate speech be something university campus students should be subjected to. I wrote the following response to Napolitano last October:

We must stand strong against Nazis like Yiannopoulos spewing their hatred and fascism on campuses, but also recognize that this invite was made possible by the accommodationism afforded by right-of-center Liberals and third way Democrats.

Like what you read? Give Robert D Skeels rdsathene a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
