Horowitzo-Fascism is taking hold on college campuses across our beloved nation. College professors - troughing foundation largesse from THE SAME CORPORATIONS THAT FUNDED HITLER - have been known to praise Governor Bush and the "war" in Iraq. Unbelievable. Take it to the campus - inform faculty and students of all stripes that a ruthless, BEARDED, determined internal enemy is corroding blood-stained American values. He advocates the gutting of Constitutional principles, and has no respect for human rights. Call him SWINE or DAVID HOROWITZ, it smells the same. AND it lies about liberalism, spreads xenophobia, terror, ignorance, misplaced faith in authority, corporatism - FASCISM.
Support David Horowitz Awareness Week.
Tink you belly mooch,
David Horowitz Awareness
By Matt Kennard
OCTOBER 19, 2007
David Horowitz—the Marxist turned neoconservative—will be speaking on campus next week as part of the inaugural Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week. The festivities are scheduled to take place on campuses from University of California, Los Angeles to Brown University to DePaul University, showcasing the brightest stars in the global fight against fascism, running the not-so-lengthy ideological gamut from Ann “Convert Them to Christianity” Coulter to Robert “Why Christianity Is a Religion of Peace and Islam Isn’t” Spencer.
Horowitz will be joined on our campus by the ever-thoughtful and nuanced sage, Sean Hannity, of the ever-thoughtful and nuanced Fox News. Together they will be spreading the ugly news that, according to Horowitz’s Oct. 15 article in Spectator,
But where does Horowitz derive his pedigree to lecture us on the threat of fascism? It seems nowhere. Horowitz is on the extreme fringes of the right wing in America that spews invective against whatever ideology or politic the American government designates as its voguish enemy. Horowitz’s ideology has actually led him to support a surfeit of actions that have strengthened the hand of fundamentalist Islam and made its spread inevitable. First was his typically overwrought support for the attack on Iraq by the United States and Britain. As the war in Iraq was building up, Horowitz wrote in the Jewish World Review that if anti-war demonstrators were successful,
In fact, the classified U.S. intelligence report by the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE), “Trends in Global Terrorism: Implications for the United States,” revealed the huge effect the war in Iraq had on increasing Islamic radicalism and spreading it to a new generation of young Muslims who would now be more likely to attack Western targets. And in Britain, a report by the Joint Terrorist Analysis Centre—which is composed of officials from MI5, MI6, Government Communications Headquarters, and the police—stated, “Events in Iraq are continuing to act as motivation and a focus of a range of terrorist-related activity in the UK.”
Horowitz also forgets to mention the succor the American government has given to Islamic fundamentalists all over the Middle East. The most barbaric and reactionary incarnation of political Islam in recent history has been the Taliban of Afghanistan—formed from the remnants of the mujahideen—who fought the Red Army during the invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. The footnote of their rise is that the jihadis were given arms and encouragement from Horowitz’s biggest hero, President Ronald Reagan.
All over the Middle East, the U.S. has quashed secular Arab nationalism. The most potent bulwark against this upsurge in the secular nationalism embodied by leaders like Anwar Al-Sadat and Gamal Abdel Nasser, was Islamic radicalism. The same is true for Israel—another one of Horowitz’s Holy States. According to Robert Dreyfuss, author of the book Devil’s Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam,
Go on, guess who the biggest friend of the United States is in the Middle East aside from Israel? That’s right, Saudi Arabia. The treatment of women in that genuinely medieval state makes Ahmadinejad’s Iran look like a feminist utopia. But Horowitz’s salvos remain trained on the official enemies of his Holy State, and currently that’s Iran. One day he might reposition, but he must wait for the nod from the Holy State. The Saudi Arabia example shows by itself that Horowitz and his fellow travelers have little regard for the rights of women and homosexuals under Islam. If women or homosexuals happen to live in an oppressive country that America and Britain want to bomb, then they will be supported with reams of invective. If they live in one that pumps out oil for our consumption and keeps their population subjugated, they can expect to receive nothing from Horowitz.
It also shows that Horowitz and his ilk don’t care about fascism, as long as the fascists are our friends. In fact, Horowitz has prasied the Contra fascists of Nicaragua who launched an attack on the democratically elected Sandinista government in the 1980s, an offensive that led to thousands of deaths.
And, amazingly, Horowitz isn’t even the worst of the nomadic warriors that are educating the country during this Islamofascist Awareness Week. His buddy Ann Coulter is also on board. This is the woman who wrote after Sept. 11:
