    The more I read about Horowitz, the more I like him. In case anybody doesn't know the term "Neocon" was originally used to describe former 60s radical leftists (mostly Jews) who left that stupidity and became Conservatives. Although nowadays most all the libs use it to describe most all conservatives, even those who were never leftists. :cuckoo: Horowitz says the turning point for him was the murder by the Black panthers (although it was never proven) of an acquaintance Betty Van Patter whom Horowitz hooked up with a job as a book for them. This guy as had a hell of a from life being raised by communist parents to be a conservative "crusader" against the left and the leftists ideology that is most of college academia


    Horowitz and Intellectual Terrorism at UCLA

    [​IMG]

    Last Wednesday, evening the Freedom Center’s David Horowitz gave a much anticipated and ferociously opposed presentation before a crowd of more than 300 people at Moore Hall at the University of California at Los Angeles. The event was hosted by the Bruin Republicans, self-described as “the only officially right-of-center organization on the UCLA campus” – which is a good, albeit disheartening, indicator of the very issue Horowitz has been addressing on hundreds of campuses across this country, and which was the evening’s topic: the fact that our institutions of supposedly higher learning are utterly dominated by intolerant progressive academics who are ill-serving and mentally straight-jacketing their students.

    Horowitz’s speech was as blunt as the title of his presentation – “Intellectual Terrorism: The Left’s War on Free Speech.” Pacing back and forth at the front of the hall, he was revved up right out of the gate and became even more impassioned as he went on. He began the wide-ranging, forty-minute speech with a condemnation of academics who indoctrinate rather than teach (“The students who suffer most are those of you who are on the left, because your assumptions are never challenged.”) Among other topics, he went on to decry campus anti-Semitism and to identify Islam as the greatest oppressor of women and gays in the world today. He delivered a myth-busting history of “Palestine” and a concise explanation of his opposition to slavery reparations a hundred years after the fact. And he attacked the Muslim Student Association, ubiquitous on major college campuses, as a creation of the Muslim Brotherhood, a supporter of the terrorist organization Hamas and the sponsor of Israel Apartheid weeks across the country.

    He was flanked throughout the speech by very visible security – a tragic necessity for Horowitz, who is a lightning rod for some of the most bilious hatred that has ever been directed at a conservative public figure. He regularly receives threats prior to speaking engagements and has in fact been physically attacked. This is the inevitable result of his having once been a radical leftist himself, for the Left is only marginally more forgiving of its apostates than fundamentalist Muslims are of theirs.

    When people say "neo-con" most of the time they mean "Jew".

    Horowitz understands the Left. He understands that everything they say is a lie to get what they want, which is control. There is no debating, no negotiating with such people THey must be destroyed politically.

    Check this out..

    FamilyHorowitz was born to a Jewish family in Forest Hills. His parents, Phil and Blanche Horowitz, were high school teachers. He taught English and she taught stenography.[3] Horowitz majored in English and received a BA from Columbia University in 1959 and a master's degree in English literature at University of California, Berkeley.

    His parents were long-standing members of the Communist Party.[4][5] Horowitz recounted his estrangement from his parents and gradual shift to the political right in a series of retrospectives, culminating in 1996 in his autobiographical book Radical Son: A Generational Odyssey.

    Horowitz co-hosted a 1987 "Second Thoughts Conference" in Washington, D.C., described by Sidney Blumenthal in The Washington Post as his "coming out" as a supporter of the right. According to attendee Alexander Cockburn, at that conference Horowitz recounted that his communist parents had not permitted him or his sister to watch Doris Day and Rock Hudson movies, and instead required them to watch celebratory films about the Soviet Union.

    Wow. What a journey. His parents could get a job as teachers in a public school today without missing a beat! :cool:

    (I'm sure I'll get dinged for that comment. :lol:)

    Above is a typical neo-con tactic: demonize the opposition.

    A fundamental tenet of neo-conservatism is the belief that the world is an evil, dangerous place where ‘terrorism’ replaces ‘communism’ and advocates the expansion of American power throughout the world accordingly:

    I knew that the majority of professors were leftist, but 95% of liberal arts professors IS astounding!
