There Goes the Neighborhood: June 10, 2016

Imagine2050 Staff • Jun 10, 2016

There Goes the Neighborhood is a weekly series from Imagine 2050 staff highlighting upcoming nativist events.

This week, two events with anti-Muslim speakers in California.

On Thursday, June 16, Sebastian Gorka will speak in Riverside, California. The event is being organized by conservative radio station AM590 and the Lincoln Club of Riverside. As Buzzfeed reported in April, Gorka has worked as a paid consultant to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Gorka is also a national security editor for Breitbart News and regular guest on anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney’s radio program. In March, Gaffney was a featured speaker at the third annual United Inland Empire conference, which AM590 also co-sponsored.

Also on Thursday, June 16, anti-Muslim writer Daniel Greenfield will speak in Los Angeles, California. Greenfield’s speaking engagement is hosted by his employer, the virulently anti-Muslim David Horowitz Freedom Center. Greenfield is a journalism fellow at the Center and regularly writes for its online outlet FrontPage Magazine. According to an announcement for the event, Greenfield’s talk is titled, “How We Will Defeat the Next Generation of Islamic Terrorism.”

Greenfield has been unabashed in espousing anti-Muslim bigotry during his years writing for the Freedom Center. He has previously derided Somalis for having supposed “Islam induced mental illness” and claimed Islam is a “gang religion” whose sole purpose is “killing non-Muslims.”

Additional information on these events and others can be found in the map below. The events scheduled for next week are marked with red stars.
