There is no doubt that the right wing, the harder “alt” and far right included, have been emboldened by the election of Donald Trump. Openly fascist and white nationalist groups post racist fliers on campuses, and right-wing think tanks are funding provocative racist and conservative speakers on campus who, when protested, claim the mantle of “free speech.” On the streets of Berkeley, alt-right, fascist, and white nationalist groups have mobilized their forces to fight anarchist “Antifas” who think that street fighting is the only way to beat back the far right. How should the left respond to these developments? How can we build the kind of movement that has the numbers, the confidence, and the politics to push back the right? This presentation will attempt to answer these questions.
