Controversial Identitarian Author Jared Taylor Will Speak at Arizona State University

Controversial identitarian publisher Jared Taylor will speak at Arizona State University (ASU) next month on the topic of white identity politics.

Taylor, who publishes American Renaissance, will give a speech on Sept. 2 at ASU hosted by the Institute of Western Thought and College Republicans United. The title of the speech is, “If We Do Nothing: A Defense of White Identity Politics.” The event will begin at 7pm.

A clip of Taylor discussing whether or not diversity is a cultural strength can be seen here:

Taylor is a figure who has been described as a white nationalist and alt-right by far-left groups like the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

“Taylor presents himself as a “race realist” who believes that racial differences are real and that it is natural and healthy for groups to segregate along racial lines. American Renaissance generally avoids the cruder bigotry and stereotyping characteristic of many other racist publications, and Taylor himself does not appear to be anti-Semitic. Taylor is sometimes referred to as the “father of the alt right” due to his influence on the alt right movement,” the ADL wrote in their smear campaign against Taylor.

“In his personal bearing and tone, Jared Taylor projects himself as a courtly presenter of ideas that most would describe as crudely white supremacist — a kind of modern-day version of the refined but racist colonialist of old,” the SPLC stated in their hit piece deriding Taylor.

Tech platform Eventbrite deplatformed organizers from selling tickets to Taylor’s speech in an attempt to restrict the speech of an individual subject to cancellation by the political establishment.

“We encourage our organizers to express their views and gather for a chosen purpose as long as it’s done in a way that doesn’t violate our Legal Terms. In this instance, we determined that Jared Taylor engages in or promotes conduct that violates our Community Guidelines and therefore is not permitted on the Eventbrite platform as an organizer or a featured speaker,” Eventbrite wrote.

“You may continue to use Eventbrite for other events. However, if we become aware of any future event featuring Jared Taylor we will remove it, and listing such an event could result in your account being terminated,” they added.

College Republicans United announced that the event will go on as planned regardless of Eventbrite’s interference:

Taylor speaking on ASU will be a substantial victory for freedom of expression for dissidents in an age of terrifying Orwellian oppression. Tickets for the event can be purchased here.
