“will challenge the violence/nonviolence binary that limits our understanding of activist practices”
It’s amazing to watch people on the left constantly accuse conservatives of participating in and inciting violence when the opposite is true and the left are the perpetrators.

Villanova professor to give lecture justifying Antifa violence
There’s room for one more scholar justifying the political violence of antifascists against whomever they brand a white supremacist, right?
Villanova University’s Billie Murray is giving a campus lecture April 24 titled “Reimagining Activism as Combative.” As noted by Rod Dreher at The American Conservative, “It sounds like she is going to give a lecture on why antifa is right to beat people up”:
In this presentation, Dr. Billie Murray will challenge the violence/nonviolence binary that limits our understanding of activist practices. Drawing on examples from her fieldwork with anti-fascist activists, she will argue that we should reimagine activism as combative. Such an expanded understanding will allow us to better discern the efficacy and ethics of combative tactics and how they work in concert with traditional, nonviolent activism.
Lest you think this is a distorted outlier of Murray’s work, the communication professor and “rhetorical activist scholar” has mixed her paper trail with activism against “white supremacists and other hate groups.” The University of California Press is planning to publish her forthcoming book on her blend of academia and activism.
