In a recent video, filmmaker Ami Horowitz asks students at the University of California, Berkeley to pledge money to the Taliban so that it can mount terrorist attacks inside the United States. The students happily pledge their money to enable that. They belong to a woke, self-hating academic culture that is reshaping our society.
“We’re trying to raise money for the Taliban,” Horowitz tells passing students. “We’re Taliban 2.0.”
As he explains to passersby: “We want to be able to train our fighters to fight back against American interests. There’s a lot of weapons that were left there, we need money to train them how to use it against American forces.” He’s clear about the fact that he wants to attack America on its own soil: “We want to train our fighters to strike back against American interests around the world and in the homeland.”
Horowitz made plain that he was raising money to massacre Americans on American soil. Horowitz tells a student that he wants to “create a safe haven for America’s enemies.” To another avidly listening young woman, he says, “We want to strike the US both abroad and in the homeland, to teach them a lesson. Life means nothing to them, and America needs to be brought to heel.” The student replied: “Very true.”
Students respond eagerly. To one student, Horowitz says, “I don’t know if you know that much about American imperialism.” She responds, “Oh, yes, yeah.” Horowitz continues: “So you know how damaging the US is.” Her reply: “Definitely!”
Students fervently agree with Horowitz. “Okay, that sounds great!,” one says. Another says, “Appreciate what you’re doing here.” A third says, “What you’re talking about is really important and I agree with you fully.” One young man informs Horowitz, “I would work for you.” Another student pledges $50; Horowitz hugs him and declares, “Do you know how many Taliban fighters we can train on that?”
In an interview with the New York Post, Horowitz said, “Every time I dream up an idea for a new video, I always have the same conversation with myself: ‘I’ve gone too far, this is too insane.’ There’s no way that people will accept the premise I’m going to present them with. I thought, ‘How can I go to a major American university and ask people to give me money for the Taliban, specifically to kill Americans? What universe do I have to be in to find American kids willing to give me money to kill Americans?’ But that’s exactly what we found….This is probably one of the only times where if someone punched me in the face, I’d be happy. Not a single person told me to go to hell or go f–k myself….The majority of people who stopped and talked to me decided they’d give me money for this — to fund the Taliban and specific use of proceeds to kill Americans, and strike back at America, and fund a new 9/11 on the US homeland.”
Horowitz’s cameraman, a liberal San Franciscan, was shocked, asking Horowitz, “Am I being punked right now? Are these actors? I don’t understand what’s happening.”
“I do,” says Robert Spencer at PJ Media. “So do you. Every day at UC Berkeley, these students’ professors regale them with propaganda about how America is an evil agent of imperialism, colonialism, and racism, and that the Americans among them should regard their American nationality with shame. This relentless indoctrination bears the fruit it was intended to bear: a generation of Americans who not only wouldn’t fight to defend this country but would cheerfully aid in its destruction. That fruit is what this video shows us.”
