Left Coast Forum: Anti-imperialism, Socialist Solidarity vs racism

It could not have been more timely, given that another panelist was Philip Giraldi, who was speaking on support for the Palestine struggle. A reputed anti-Semite, Giraldi is a right winger and a supporter of racism and the anti-immigrant phobia. He is co-editor of unz.com. On that web site, for example, is an article which essentially supports the old apartheid regime in South Africa, as well as calling Trump and Secretary of State Pompeo “super heroes.” It is a disgrace that a left event like “Left Coast Forum” would allow somebody like Giraldi tp speak there.
