“We don’t tolerate fascists”
It’s amazing that the left is still calling Ben Shapiro a fascist. It’s completely false, but it’s a talking point that they lazily cling to.

FSU Leftists Plan Anti-Free Speech Protest Ahead of Ben Shapiro Lecture, Deface Flyers
Multiple left-wing student organizations at Florida State University have planned to protest Ben Shapiro’s upcoming speech at the school, according to a tip received through Young America’s Foundation’s Campus Bias Tipline.
The FSU Students for Justice in Palestine organized and announced the protest and the FSU Students for a Democratic Society have stated they will be assisting FSUSJP in their efforts.
“We don’t tolerate fascists,” FSUSJP said on Instagram.
Those who disapprove of his ideology claim that he practices “hate speech,” despite being the “…No. 1 target of anti-Semitic attacks among journalists in 2016, according to the Anti-Defamation League,” Fox News reported.
Shapiro’s upcoming event sold out in record time, as students and schools vie to host him next. The planned student protest pales in comparison to the more than 1,500 students planning on attending Shapiro’s remarks.
Earlier this week FSUSJP advertised the protest and expressed their frustration with their school for allowing the event. “We are outraged that FSU has offered him a platform,” the post read.
Both FSU College Democrats and FSUSDS released statements highlighting their disapproval of free speech and the event.
“If President McCollough wishes to foster a safer and more inclusive community here on campus, like he has repeatedly claimed to want, he will cancel Shapiro’s event,” the College Democrats said.
