Fascism Stinks!

To whom it may concern,

We members of Eugene's anarchist Black Tea Society are shocked and appalled by the behavior of a number of reckless hooligans during the Pacifica Forum meeting Friday, May 7th! In the early evening a putrid smell, very similar to that of looming fascism, filled Esslinger Hall. The culprit: three dozen stink bombs. What these young miscreants just don't understand is that history has proven time and again that fascists are consistently vanquished by reasonable dialogue and passive sign holding. After all what brought down Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Franco and many more was clearly the might of Western capitalist logic. These misguided youth are obviously wing nut Utopian Kropotkonites! We are in complete total agreement with the wise and benevolent University administrators that these hooligans actions were childish and unimaginative and that fascists are sacrosanct should be unopposed. We also hold that the brutal response of university security was entirely justified. We suggest to campus security that they adopt a policy of throwing all anti-fascists down stairs, as they did to Fridays protesters. We hope that in future people will exercise proper restraint when dealing with advocates of genocide and totalitarianism.


Hugs and Kisses,
