Milo is a tool of Trump’s fascist government: He has no right to speak at Cal or anywhere else!

Milo Yiannopoulos, mouthpiece of Trump-Pence, is coming to Cal this Wednesday as part of his “Dangerous Faggot” campus tour. Milo rose to fame voicing disdain for human rights, vicious nationalism, xenophobia, and misogyny, and unapologetic support for Donald Trump, which he claims he is allowed to spew in public because of “free speech”. He claims to be “dangerous” to a “stifling liberal culture” of "political correctness.” He tries to leverage his identity (that he is gay and has a Black boyfriend) as some kind of excuse. In fact, he is a fascist, and students at campuses along his tour have righteously fought, and sometimes succeeded, in shutting down his speaking gigs.

At UC Berkeley professors, and students and professors at campuses across the country, have raised that what Milo is doing is hate speech, which causes direct harm to students and campus life, and that this is not “free speech” and should not be allowed. The UC Berkeley administration has not fully responded to this, and is letting Milo’s speech go forward. This is wrong. But there are even larger issues at stake.
