Freedom Center founder on how universities are doctrinal institutions for whom dissent is heresy.
Editor’s note: below are the video and transcript of David Horowitz’s recent lecture on the destruction of American higher education and his new book, “The Black Book of the American Left, Volume VIII: The Left in the University.” Remarks were delivered at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel in Los Angeles, CA and broadcast on C-SPAN2.
David Horowitz: Last week I was at the University of Houston in Houston, where the week before they had held a national conference for Students for Justice in Palestine. The university hosted it. Students for Justice in Palestine is a creature of the terrorist organization Hamas and is a Hamas propaganda network. I brought along a little clip to show you so you can share with me.
That was seven minutes into my talk, and I had said at the outset of the talk that when I was a radical at Berkeley and Columbia in the sixties, I always wanted to hear what the other side had to say because I felt that would make me a better radical. I would have the arguments. Those days are gone.
