Judith Butler on her Brazil Travails

Here. I posted on Twitter last week about an odd attack at the airport. By happenstance I was just watching her give an interview for the 2015 movie Vita Activa (on Arendt), where she says (I’m paraphrasing), “I speak in favor of plurality. And I’m attacked. Who could be against that?” Then she gives this knowing laugh since on the face it is absurd, yet the forces of reaction (yelling “Trump” at her in Brazil) are there.
