David Horowitz is like a rock star to me. Like Elvis. He’s 74. He isn’t affectionate or ebullient, at least not in public. What attracts me to him is how clearly he communicates the conservative message. He’s been on both sides, his parents were Communists, so he knows what he’s talking about.
I went to hear David Horowitz speak at Trevecca Nazarene University last night. We’d met twice before; once, at the Beverly Hills Tea Party in 2010 when I sang, “There’s a Communist Living in the White House” on my uke, and last August at the Ronald Reagan Library where I ran toward him like a crazed fan, waving my arms wildly and screaming, “David Horowitz!!” He recoiled and looked away from me, frightened.
I recently ordered pamphlets from his web site; “The Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration,” “Ten Reasons to Impeach Eric Holder,” “Occupy Wall Street-The Communist Movement Reborn,” “Muslim Hate Groups On Campus,” “10 Reasons to Abolish the U.N., ” etc. They are short enough of a read to give my non-literary friends who are un-informed. They are fact-filled truth. I love them.
Last night, Horowitz gave the clearest explanation I’ve ever heard of the difference between the Left and the Right. I’m hoping to get an audio tape of the event. He said the Left bases their ideology on the concept that man is born good, and humans can redeem themselves with social institutions. The Right bases their ideology on the concept that man is born bad, (Romans 3:23) and only divine intervention can redeem him from evil (sin). The Left believes “society” causes evil. The Right believes “we” (the individual) are the problem. The Left believes in “collective salvation.” The Right believes in “personal responsibility.” Our founders knew that men leaned toward misbehaving and that power corrupts and that’s why they established the checks and balances. The Left’s belief system is a “religion” he said, and the oldest false religion in history, going back to the Garden of Eden, when man wanted to be equal with God.
