Stop Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking at University of Maryland

This petition had 240 supporters

Milo Yiannopoulos is a hate-mongering, right wing extremist. He is sexist, racist, Islamabophic, and generally hateful. He has written articles calling for the mass deportation of all Muslims from the U.S, said, "[W]omen’s liberation was probably a mistake", called Leslie Jones, a famous black actress, "barely literate" and a "black dude". 

 Sadly, Milo Yiannopoulos is scheduled to speak at the University of Maryland on October 26, 2016. On campuses where Yiannopoulos has spoken, messages such as "Fuck Mexico" appear. Hate follows Yiannopolus where he goes, and we do not want that hate on our campus. Universities have stopped him from making appearances and speaking, but only because those who cared spoke up against his vile words. 

 Please sign this petition. The University of Maryland is an incredibly diverse and welcoming community, and Yiannopoulos just seeks to divide what we have all worked so hard to build.
