David Horowitz was in town yesterday to speak at the University of Minnesota in the afternoon and at a supporter’s house in the evening. I attended both events. It was good to see David back on his feet after recent health challenges and it was good to reconnect with my old friend Michael Finch, president of the David Horowitiz Freedom Center. David is a former leader of the New Left who has been teaching us how to fight the left for the past 25 years. I don’t think we have it down yet. NR’s Jay Nordlinger paid tribute to David in a series of columns here (part i), here (part ii), and here (part iii).
At last night’s evening event, David was joined by Bill Whittle and I finally got the chance to meet him. I’ve been a fan of his for a long time. Bill has of late been making videos as part of the center’s TruthRevolt project. Last night they played Bill’s TR video “Number one with a bullet” (video and transcript at the link, video below). The video has had more than a million views on YouTube. If you haven’t seen this, I think you’ll enjoy it.
The center seeks to bring Bill’s work to a wider audience. You can support the work of the center with an online contribution here.
