The Battle for Berkeley: Why it’s Right, and Righteous, to Drive Fascists Off Campus, Out of Berkeley... and Out of Power!

A Talk and a Challenge to Debate by Sunsara Taylor

Thursday, May 4, 6pm
Hearst Field Annex Building D, Room D37
University of California Campus, Berkeley
On May 4th, on UC Berkeley Campus, Sunsara Taylor will speak on, “Why it's Right, and Righteous, to Drive Fascists Off Campus, Out of Berkeley... and Out of Power!”
A week after Ann Coulter was scheduled to speak on campus, and as the national spotlight remains on Berkeley for the cancellation of her speech, Sunsara Taylor argues, “The issue is not 'free speech.' the issue is fascism being imposed on America. Ann Coulter is a fascist operative with close ties to the Trump/Pence Regime. It is not only right, but righteous, to drive fascists like her off campus, out of Berkeley, and more than that, out of power!”
Taylor continued, “Far from being persecuted or suppressed by the state for her ideas, Coulter's ideas are being imposed on the world by the most powerful state in the history of humanity. Every day, the fascist Trump/Pence Regime is slamming ahead to implement precisely the kind of genocidal racism, woman-hating cruelty, war-mongering ambitions, planet-destroying lies, and anti-immigrant ethnic-cleansing she promotes. Meanwhile, Trump is attacking the press, threatening to strip the citizenship rights of people who burn the flag, and moving rapidly to consolidate a fascist America.”
Taylor has also issued a challenge to Robert Reich, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders—or anyone else who wants to join them in defending the right of Coulter to speak — to debate.
