The Left in the University by David Horowitz

Introduction to Volume 8 of the Black Book of the American Left.

The eighth volume of the series of my writings called The Black Book of the American Left is about one of the underappreciated tragedies of our times: the successful campaign of the left to subvert the curricula of collegiate institutions and transform entire academic departments and schools—including Schools of Education—into doctrinal training centers for their social and political causes. This transformation of the educational system in turn has underpinned the steady dismantling of America’s social contract, which has been the ongoing project of the left since the 1960s.

This is actually the sixth book I have written on the subject of the transformation and its destructive consequences.

In addition to whatever analytic contributions are made in these pages, they provide a compendium of anecdotal evidence about the manner in which progressive activists have taken control of liberal arts curricula and reverted them to their 19th-century origins as instruments of religious indoctrination. The new doctrines differ from their 19th-century predecessors in that they are political and secular, having been shaped by Marxism and its derivatives. These “progressive” doctrines, however, share with traditional religions the same impulse to redeem a fallen world and to suppress what they regard as hostile—therefore heretical—ideas in the name of human progress.

David Horowitz: “The Democratic Party is the Party of Hate” (Video)

“It’s not just Berkeley, but almost all major colleges, one party states, safe places for leftists ideas. They purge conservatives from their faculty and purge conservative books from their required reading list,” he said.

Conservative writer David Horowitz, founder of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, has been banned from CNN and his own alma mater, the University of California, Berkeley.

Horowitz says his publisher called CNN’s PR person and they said “we are not having Horowitz.”

The same happened to him at Berkeley where his event was canceled just like Ann Coulter’s recently cancelled speech.

According to Horowitz, the campus administration and the campus police department were not allowing Berkeley’s college Republicans to inform other students of where their event was taking place.

Horowitz explains the left’s agenda in his new book, Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America, specifically pointing out the fact that Hillary Clinton falsely accused Trump of raising up what she deemed as the “basket of deplorables.”

But Horowitz was not always a conservative. He grew up with parents who were a part of the American Communist Party and strong supporters of Joseph Stalin.

My Free Speech at Berkeley, Not by David Horowitz

How universities like Berkeley aim to kill free speech.

A full-page ad is appearing in today’s Daily Californian, calling on students to “COME HEAR DAVID HOROWITZ SPEAK AT BERKELEY ON APRIL 12.” Following this, the ad says, “COME HEAR HIM, THAT IS, IF YOU CAN FIND HIM!” Well actually you can’t. That’s because the UC Berkeley Administration, which is determined to keep its students “safe” from conservative speakers like me, chose to place such onerous restrictions on the event that its hosts, Berkeley College Republicans, felt they had to cancel it.

University officials will tell you that the restrictions were necessary to ensure public safety, but this will just be the most egregious of their self-serving lies. They will seek to validate this by invoking the February riot, which prevented Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking on campus, causing $100,000 damage and physical violence to bystanders in the process. Milo was not responsible for that riot; the Berkeley Administration and the UC police were. It was their responsibility to present a show of force that would have prevented the mayhem, and failing that to arrest the perpetrators and see to it that they received long jail sentences and were required to pay restitution for the damage they caused. But the UC can’t be bothered with actual concerns for public safety. In fact, the UC Police Department led by Captain Alex Yao, did nothing to stop or arrest the rioters, who as a result will not have to think twice before rioting again, say at my event or at Ann Coulter’s which is scheduled to take place at the end of the month.
