Trump-loving “Alt-right” speaker at U-MD cancelled citing “security expenses”

On the 25th of October, Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos was scheduled to speak at University of MD. He is known for directing hate at Muslims and at Black Lives Matter activists. With other universities at which he peddled his hate claiming to have received bomb threats,Terps for Trump(the student group hosting his event) cancelled, claiming security expenses would exceeed $2,000 and the total expense of letting him speak exceed $6,500. Hate has been made too expensive even for priviliged white republicans at University of MD.

With the popular revulsion his hate has attracted, Milo wanted an escort of five police officers for his appearance at University of MD. The far-right and even the racist alt-right are not known for courage. In the face of resistance they chump out like the cowards they are. By comparison, progressive speakers are not known for hiding behind cops even in places where “bonehead” violence from the far-right is a real threat, presumably because police simply add an additional threat in that case.
