David Horowitz coming to UCI

One of my favorite right wing blowhards is coming to UCI next week to pimp his new book. 

Horowitz will be at UCI’s Rowland Hall, Room 101, May 13, at 7:30pm; In contrast, a much better and more interesting speaker is at UCI Tonight, and that’s Stan Lee of Marvel Comics fame (who would you rather go see?)

David Horowitz, who once called Ann Coulter “a national treasure” and rails against liberal professors who are dangerously indoctrinating our youth with notions of liberalism.  Horowitz has made a killing recently by railing against Islamo-Facisim. His new book is “Party of Defeat: How Democrats and Radicals Undermined America’s War on Terror Before and After 9-11,” co-written with Ben Johnson.  It’s 9/11 all the time with these guys.  No other answers for anything else.

Some fun photos after the flip:

Note to David: no one underminded the War on Terror more so than the Bush Administration by failing to defeat the Taliban in Afghanistan and launching into a war with Iraq that will end up costing us trillions in treasure, in the tends of thousands in blood, and by undermining civil liberties and basic American values.  There will be no discussion about how American now views torture as a legal interrogation technique.

Speaking of Islamo-Facism, see this photo of a much younger David Horowitz below:
