David Horowitz of Horowitz Freedom Center to speak in Ramona on Feb. 25

By Darrell Beck

David Horowitz was one of the founders of the radical New Left in the 1960s. Over the years, however, Horowitz has had second thoughts about his anger during those early days of protest.

He has written many books including “Destructive Generation” (1989) and “Radical Son” (1996) in which he traces the odyssey that took him from “red-diaper baby” to a respected national figure and conservative activist.

Among his other books are “The Politics of Bad Faith” (2000), “Hating Whitey” (2000), “Left Illusions” (2003) and “The Party of Defeat” (2008). His “Unholy Alliance” (2004) was a prophetic work pioneering the view that the Islamo-Fascists are working hand in glove with the secularist left.

So who better than a hard-core leftist turned conservative to expose the left, some ask? Because of his life experiences, Horowitz created the Center for the Study of Popular Culture (CSPC) in 1988. It was renamed the David Horowitz Freedom Center (DHFC) in 2006. This organization’s mission is to defend the principles of individual freedom, the rule of law, private property and limited government.

Horowitz has devoted much of his attention over the past several years to the radicalization of the American university. He devised an Academic Bill of Rights to protect students from abusive indoctrination in the classroom.

Asserting that, “you can’t get a good education if they’re only telling you half the story,” Horowitz founded Students for Academic Freedom (SAF), which has chapters on 200 college campuses.

Horowitz has spoken at over 300 colleges and universities and continues to visit about 30 campuses a year.

He has appeared on television’s Nightline, Crossfire, Today, Hannity and Colmes, the O’Reilly Factor, Good Morning America, C-SPAN, CNBC, Fox News and MSNBC.

Horowitz will speak at the Ramona Tea’d monthly forum on Saturday, Feb. 25, in the Ramona Mainstage, 626 Main St. His topic will be Stealth Jihad.

Doors open at 11 a.m. and the program begins at noon. Food and drinks are available on site. Early arrival is recommended, because seating is limited.

Also on the program will be other notable speakers including Michael Hayutin, Linda Sax and Jim Freedman. For more information see www.RamonaTead.com
