When in Need of Dragons to Slay, Invent Some

David Horowitz Slanders Ron Paul, Iraq Vets
Posted by Eric A. Garris at October 15, 2007 11:23 AM

You would think that David Horowitz could find enough to attack without making stuff up.

Today's FrontPageMag.com has a "story" about “American Fascism Awareness Day” to counter Horowitz's own "Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week." The supposed flyer for the event asks "Who Hates Americans? We Do. Your typical American is: A racist. A sexist. A homophobe. An Islamo-phobe. Is willing to invade other countries for oil and pleasure. Is easily manipulated by Rush Limbaugh and Jews. Is the cause of global warming." The "event" is supposedly co-sponsored by a number of organizations, including Iraq Veterans Against the War and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, and speakers include Ron Paul and others.

Here's the punch line: The Event is scheduled for NOVEMBER 31, 2007. Of course, there is no Nov. 31 on the calendar. And none of the organizations listed mentions the "event" on their websites, and a Google search for "American Fascism Awareness Day" produces only mentions of the FrontPageMag article.


[Neocon fraud is exposed all too easily. Mr. Horowitz and ilk have a reputation of shooting self in foot — recently, more than usual. The latest ironically super-fascistic, anti-Islamic machine was doomed, on merit, from the starting line, and has since misfired badly. And no — it's not a satirical piece. It might be called "satire" once FPM has to own up; which would amount to a paint-on fig leaf, at best. Until then, the fraud is doing its job of radicalizing neocon lemmings and others against the innocent people and organizations listed on the flyer. –DT]
