Debate Sunday with David Horowitz
(broadcast stream) (.mp3 download Right-click,”Save Target as”,”Save”)
Today, Mark debates former Radical Leftist and now Radical Right-Wing writer and political commentator, David Horowitz.
In addition to arguing strongly against what he believes to be liberal indoctrination in political universities, Horowitz is a fierce opponent of affirmative action. One of Horowitz’s many controversial quotes (as to why he is opposed to slavery reparations) is as follows:
“What about the debt blacks owe to Americaâ€”to white Americaâ€”for liberating them from slavery?”
Liberal activist Chip Berlet wrote an article for the Southern Poverty Law Center entitled “Into the Mainstream”, which named Horowitz’s Center for the Study of Popular Culture as one of an “array of right-wing foundations and think tanks support[ing] efforts to make bigoted and discredited ideas respectable.”
In an open letter to SPLC president Morris Dees, Horowitz urged Dees to remove the article from the SPLC website, alleging that it was “so tendentious, so filled with transparent misrepresentations and smears that if you continue to post the report you will create for your Southern Poverty Law Center a well-earned reputation as a hate group itself.”
I expect a contentious debate today.
