Dick Spencer to Speak University of Florida @ Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
Oct 19 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Once again, in the name of free speech, someone who doesn’t want you to have yours – or any other freedoms – if you are not his kind of American is coming to a college campus near you. The University of Florida, here in the hometown of musician Tom Petty, who died Oct. 2, tried to keep Dick Spencer off their campus, when he tried to organize an appearance last month in the wake of Charlottesville.  But it’s on again and folks are preparing for him and his crew of boneheads to make it down to the Sunshine State. They have been preparing for a few months as it is, so expect numbers.  The University of Florida has a website up for anyone who has questions.  The Torch Network also has a call out for everyone to come and oppose this event.

ALERT! Mike Cernovich to Speak at Columbia University @ Room 501 Schermerhorn Hall, Columbia University
Oct 30 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

It looks like the College Republicans at Columbia U. are trying to get their Fash on,  booking two fascists to speak at the university in recent week. The first one was Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, aka Tommy Robinson of the English Defence League, and that didn’t go over too well last week. The other is “Pizzagate” hypeman Mike Cernovich, and he’s coming to the school on Mischief Night. Now Cernovich is more than just the peddler of debunked conspiracy theories. This garbage in human skin who pushes the routine that “diversity is code for white genocide” believes that Black women should be slut shamed to prevent them from getting AIDS, says that date rape does not exist and was actually charged with rape in 2003 (it was knocked down to misdemeanor battery), promoted a campaign of harassment against women in the video game industry called Gamergate, and according to one tweet, will not support immigration of Muslims into the U.S. (as if it is his choice in the first place) until we all stop talking about white privilege and Islamophobia:

Hell, he just doesn’t like Muslims period, nor does he likes Jews who call out antisemitism:

Freedom is not big on his list of favorite things, apparently:

And of course, he has a weird tweet about Harvey Weinstein:

So in the interest of preserving his right to question the rights of those he doesn’t like, especially those of women, he will be given a space to speak. And so be it. We are sure there will be people coming out and demanding that same space to speak in to call him out.
