A Ban On Horowitz

Yet another act of censorship by yet another college. St. Louis University is banning David Horowitz as a campus speaker. According to the College Republicans, who had invited the conservative activist to give a talk on October 13, Dean of Students Scott Smith said he could not allow the speech because Horowitz might “insinuate that all people of the Islamic faith are fascists.” Horowitz called this statement “a malicious falsehood.” John K. Wilson has an impressive commentary on his web site, College Freedom.
