Campus Left in Action

A conservative group is being maliciously smeared on the campus of George Washington University by way of a fake flier filled with anti-Muslim hate messages. From David Horowitz' blistering response to the campaign:

In a stratagem typical of the deceitful smear campaigns the left seems to favor, an obviously fake hate flyer has been posted all over the George Washington University campus with the intention of sabotaging Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week (October 22-26), and smearing its sponsors the David Horowitz Freedom Center and the Young America’s Foundation.

The flyer, which is headlined “Hate Muslims? So Do We” and masquerades as a publication by GW students now organizing Islamo Fascism Awareness Week activities, is itself a hate crime as well as a forgery. Its authors, cowering behind anonymity, are part of what has become a national movement to attack Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week.

Hot Air has lots more, including an update reporting that several leftist students have now confessed to distributing this clumsy smear job. As per usual, it is being called "satire" by the offenders in the aftermath. What a knee-slapper this one is!

In the face of this phony hate campaign by campus leftists, which is sponsored by hard-core anti-American groups like International A.N.S.W.E.R., Horowitz restates and defends the goals of Islamo-Fascist Awareness Week:

Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week is an effort to give moderate Muslims support against the forces that have hijacked their religion. It is also an effort to defend Christians, Jews, Hindus, gays, and other groups now under attack by Islamic fundamentalists. We are particularly concerned about the oppression of women under fundamentalist Islamic regimes such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, and about the silence of the Women’s Studies Departments on this campus in the face of that oppression.

---

We are not going to be dissuaded by these tactics. We will hold Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week on over 100 college campuses in addition to GW between October 22 and 26. Our purpose remains unchanged: to condemn the outrages committed by the Islamo-Fascists against women, gays, Christians, Jews and moderate Muslims, and to support those Muslims who are always the first victims of the radical jihad.

For more on the troubling alliance between the Western Left and radical jihadist Islam, see Horowitz' book on the topic.
