The College Republicans at Tulane have invited Ann Coulter to give a lecture on our campus as a part of the nationwide "Islamofascism Week" organized by David Horowitz. She will be speaking at 7pm on Mon., Oct. 22nd, at Tulane's McAlister Auditorium. Join anti-racist and democratic-minded Tulane students in confronting this outrage!

Is this event about "Islamofascism" or White Supremacy?

Arabs and Muslims are under attack in our country and around the world. The College Republicans and Ann Coulter claim to be concerned about the rise of “Islamofascism”—a category into which they subsume not only the likes of Osama Bin Laden but also legitimate anti-imperialist movements such as in Iraq, the anti-apartheid struggle in Palestine, the Lebanese resistance against Israeli invasion, and countless autonomous and democratic movements of Arabs and Muslims seeking to govern themselves in opposition to the so-called benevolent hand of American empire. Coulter and her ilk even purport to be in the vanguard of defending Muslim women against some sort of feudalistic patriarchy they claim is inherent to Islam. Apparently, Coulter would like to redefine democracy and women’s liberation with an altogether new meaning. Hers is a “democracy” compatible with Israeli apartheid, Zionism, and American empire. Hers is a “liberation” granted by rulers who bomb entire cities and towns; who destroy a country’s infrastructure; who imprison whole populations of people in jails and open-air ghettos; who dismantle families and communities; and who suppress the self-governing instincts and desires of people of color.

But we know better. We see Coulter, and her “Islamofascism” claims, exactly for what they are: a thinly veiled white supremacy and support for American empire that calls for the attack, subjugation, and murder of Arabs and Muslims and everyday working folks alike.

Coulter’s ideas deserve nothing less than to be confronted and smashed. How is it that Coulter is being welcomed with open arms on our campus? The University Administration and a small section of the student body at Tulane have shown themselves completely complacent in the face of, or worse, supportive of such racism as Coulter has to offer. How can such people pretend to have any association with liberty and justice? Their irresponsibility should serve as a stark reminder for anti-racist and democratic-minded people that only our self-organized collective power, expressed through direct action, will successfully defeat these forces and make them a reality only in our history books.
