Antifa And The SPLC Successfully Shut Down Four Anti-Islam Conferences

The Anti-Fascists Are Restless

From The Daily Caller:
Antifa groups used information from the Southern Poverty Law Center to successfully shut down four conferences on the threat of Islam scheduled in Wisconsin and Minnesota last weekend. 
The hotels slated for the events were flooded with threatening calls, and the organizers voluntarily canceled one of the events following numerous warnings that it would not be safe. A fifth conference in Des Moines, Iowa carried on in defiance, despite leftists showing up to disrupt the proceedings. 
The conferences were hosted by Worldview Weekend, a conservative Christian organization that produces radio and TV shows and sponsors events nationwide. 
The SPLC posted the locations for these venues, after which Antifa groups urged their members through social media to attend events and swamp the venues with threatening calls and messages. 
According to Worldview CEO Brannon Howse, a state trooper even visited the Minneapolis hotel where an event was planned for Sunday. He said the police were concerned about conference security and the organizer should add more police. 
With the financial losses from other canceled events, Howse said they could not afford to provide more security than those already hired, and cancelled that last event out of safety concerns.

Gosh. Pamela Geller hired extra security and we were still fired upon - with stage management courtesy of the Friendly Brethren.

Didn't cancel. Courage. Didn't tear up my ticket for entry to the parking lot and ticket for admission to the event. Conviction.

The hosting organization should have not backed down. Silly asses.

CAIR tried to shut down a talk by Anni Cyrus at one of our local VFW's in Massachusetts. The retired Marine running the place said nothing doing, the First Amendment will be honored in this building, and the show went on with nary even a picket sign in view. I doubt Antifa or the SPLC would have fared much better.

Venues that will not cave in to threat is one part of the answer, as are equally resolute speakers and ticket buyers.
