Horowitz’s Vast Left Wing Conspiracy

David Horowitz, champion of political balance on America’s college campuses, has posted an interesting “lesson” on his new website, It turns out, according to Horowitz’s dogged research, that most of America’s progressive leaders, Hollywood entertainers and civil rights advocates are closely aligned with radical Islamic terrorists known for killing Americans, such as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Mohammed Atta and Ayatollah Khomeini. And you thought Roger Ebert was just a bad film critic!

Lest you think it’s all just a big joke, Horowitz cautions: “This database reflects links that are not merely caricatures by political enemies but are legitimate indices of a political reality.” It should yield a “new understanding of the forces that define our social reality.”
