Leftists Force Horowitz From Stage– Shut Down Free Speech at Emory!!!

October 24th, 2007 · 171 Comments

UPDATES–UPDATES— Please check back for updates.

Here is the video of the final moments of the Horowitz speech tonight…
Before it was shut down.

Liveblogging at Emory University…
This is going to be a blowout!
The crowd is at capacity and is 80-90% protesters!The students have signs on their backs and are planning on standing with their back to David Horowitz.

The United for Peace and Justice crowd started to gather in the lobby around 7:00 PM.
Veterans for Peace showed up with their billboards of dead children. The veteran was interviewed with the camera crew that was there working with Incorrect U.

David Horowitz is introduced…

Emory shows respect. The booing started when David Horowitz walked on the stage and the interruptions lasted until the talk was cancelled.
Nice job, Emory!
It was a dark day for Emory University.The Emory crowd stood one by one with their backs to David Horowitz.
The communists fell into line- Horowitz just pegged them but was having a hard time with the interruptions that were constant.
There were continuous outbursts coming from this crowd.Finally a member of the university security staff told the crowd to sit down or they would be forcibly escorted out of the building.

You know what happened next… The place erupted.
Video and more pictures to follow.
It was shameful.

Because this thread has been receiving so much traffic, I thought I would tag on the GW report as it contains cleaner footage of the Emory event.

    I wonder if Horowitz will answer the question I wrote down on one of those little cards at the front door - the display was despicable - but the demonstrators could have been removed one at a time - for Horowitz not to have requested the removal was shocking to me. I had so many questions - and the man etted off to the airport before anyone was the wiser. I guess Emory deserved it, but I drove over 100 miles to watch this 35 minute free for all heckle fest.

    […] Incorrect U (h/t Washington Times) has the first, from Emory University last night. David Horowitz was on hand to speak as part of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week. Evidently quite a few in the crowd wanted to prevent awareness from having a chance to take root. They stood and turned their backs to him en masse, then erupted when the school threatened to kick them out. The end result was that Emory shut down the speech entirely. So Horowitz never got to deliver his speech on Islamo-Fascism, but he did help expose that fact that Emory is evidently infested with anti-speech fascists. […]

    My former roommate is the short center-right guy with the orange cap. I spoke to him shortly before leaving the building after taking a midterm, and he did not indicate to me that he’d be a nuisance of a heckler that evening. Plus, he’s an exec member of the Young Dems of Emory. Needless to say, my current roommate isn’t fond of him (no longer, it seems, am I).

  • 16 Eclectic Infidel // Oct 25, 2007 at 1:03 pm

    Standard procedure should be an automatic ejection, period. They probably weren’t ejected because Horowitz didn’t want to appear as an ogre. Truth be told, these “progressives” lack integrity and honor, and unless the speaker is a raving moonbat like themselves, they’ll refuse to behave.

    No idiot, this was a speaking engagement. Just because you are in the audience does NOT give you the right to interrupt a speaker and an event.

  • 18 Texan // Oct 25, 2007 at 1:15 pm


    Freedom of speech is not whomever shouts the loudest is right; it is the right of expression of ideas and beliefs in a civilized and respectful manner. He says his thing; you listen and digest it. You counter with your thing. He listens. Voices do not have to be raised and insults are not required. Only the rational exchange of ideas. That is freedom of speech; expression without fear or burden of being persecuted for speaking, whether it is popular or not.

    I would be far more impressed and likely to listen to the points of the Anti-War movement if they could reign in the righteous indignation an cogently express themselves in an intelligent manner. Catch-phrases, talking points and synchronized ass-holery do not win arguments, it makes more people dismiss you.

    Hey escargot, free speech works like this: First one person talks then the other person talks back. (An exchange of ideas and information, where both sides get to have their say.)

    Free speech is not preventing someone from talking by shouting over them. Hint: Poo throwing monkeys aren’t using free speech.

  • 22 jay // Oct 25, 2007 at 1:45 pm

    This was written in response to the article in the Emory Wheel (

    I read your article covering the David Horowitz speaking event with both interest and dismay. The article left out some key facts about the event and “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week” in general. Why the headlines about “outsiders shutting it down” when the organizers admitted that many Emory students were clearly involved? Additionally, the advertisement Horowitz’s crew put in the Emory Wheel promoting this event stated that it was a public event being hosted on campus. The audience was not going to be allowed to field open questions (as was made clear by the 3×5 index cards outside the event that people were asked to write their questions on) and if the speech had not been disrupted, what this guy had to say would have been recorded as having occurred largely unopposed. The Emory Wheel refused to print a paid ad from a leftist group criticizing Bush’s threats of war on Iran shortly before the speech (even though Horowitz has advertised in the Wheel both this week and in the past). Certainly not an atmosphere of free debate, still less a “leftist dictatorship on campus” as Horowitz might spin it. The pinnacle of hypocrisy, however, is the fact that the “Student’s Guide to Hosting Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week” itself calls for “sit-ins in Women’s Studies Departments and campus Women’s Centers to protest their silence about the oppression of women in Islam” ( [sic]). I’ve heard that at Emory, the Women’s Studies department sent emails around warning instructors about disruptions in their classes this week. In his summation of Wednesday night’s event, Horowitz wrote on his website, “[T]here should be zero tolerance for disrupters at campus events” ( It sounds like Horowitz got a taste of his own medicine - and didn’t like it.

    You site many arguements defending how offended the protesters should be and how horrible the speaker is perceived to be. Not one point sited excused the behavior of the disruptors. You don’t get a free pass just because you are super-outeraged.

    He makes his speech; the opposing side hosts a forum denouncing it. Show him your opposition in an adult form. Build honest support that will last and be effective, not some juvenile tantrum that only gets you ridicule and derision.

    If the Anti-War movement has the support it purports to have, it should have no problem honestly debating the issue in a reasonable and less emotionally-charged manner.

    Frankly, this is why public protests rarely do anything but please the already-converted; it does nothing to impress or change the minds of those you need the support of to effect change.

    escargot - You seem to be showing all the insightful understanding that the name suggests.

    Freedom of speech is about the right to communicate ideas - not about a group of organized rowdies shouting down someone to prevent ideas or information they dislike from being expressed. It would be freedom of speech if the Left-Wing-Loonies and Politically Correct Useful Idiots really did allow Horowitz to speak, and really did reply by trying to express their opinion to the contrary. It is abuse, and not freedom, when they instead prevent anyone they disagree with from speaking.

    Now please tell all of us what part of that is too hard for you to understand.

    So this is what passes for a libral arts education. I find such ignorance amusing rather than distressing, some of the old farts should have known better. But when you are out of ideas and removed from reality as most modern liberals are, all you have left to do are throwing infantile tantrums in public touted as dialog in the marketplace of ideas. Emory is no worse than 95% of the university systems. One more example of their neo-fascist intolerance. Useful idiots is the other phrase that comes to mind…

  • 35 mwl // Oct 25, 2007 at 6:39 pm

    Heckling and disruption are the bane of any speaker not willing to toe the line of the Leftists. On the other hand, such poor behavior might not be entirely a bad thing…let me explain.

    In 1989 I was a student at Cornell, and I had a work-study job as an AV technician at the student union. One day I was running the sound system at a talk starring a representative of the Nicaraguan contras. A number of students in the audience heckled him mercilessly. While I was far from agreeable with the speaker’s views, I was utterly disgusted by my fellow students’ behavior; it was my first look at moonbats in action. I found the experience to be quite educational. It was the first step on a long road that transformed this son of stereotypical Massachusetts liberals into a hawkish Republican.

    So, keep your cool in the face of heckling and disruption, as that Nicaraguan gentleman did in 1989. Give the moonbats as much rope as you can stand, and let them hang themselves with it. Hopefully other young minds who prefer reason to emotion will learn the lesson, just like I did.

David Horowitz scares liberal because he uses logic and facts. The idiots that display the pictures of killed or wounded Iraqi people neglect to say that as a matter of public policy America does NOT target civilians unlike Islamo-Fascist that murder civilians as part of a military tactic.

    Puleeze! Socialism and liberty (any liberty, including “free speech) are anathema to each other. Socialism requires the subordination of the individual to the state; the few to the many. This requires giving up all self-identitiy and personal responsibility. It is also fascism. NAZI translates to English as: “National Socialist German Workers’ Party.” The Italian Socialist Party is also fascist.” According to Wikipedia, the definition of fascism is: “…an authoritarian political ideology (generally tied to a mass movement) that considers individual and other societal interests subordinate to the interests of the state.”

    Can’t really fault Emory; they were practising what they preach: fascism!

I do not get to upset, when I was in college I thought I was smarter and more aware than everyone else. Shortly after leaving I found out how much I had to learn. I accept them for their shortcomings and do not respect them enough to care about their actions. For some reason, we like to have this reverence for those going to college. They are just dumb kids who were “got” by college professors before Scientology or the Moonies found them

If we keep letting them get away with this sort of thing our freedom of speech is going to be going down the drain like so many of our other freedoms.
    There is supposed to be a law, or at least there used to be, called freedom of speech whereby a person had the right to say whatever was on his mind. Those who wanted to listen were allowed to do so. Those who disagreed were obligated to leave them alone and organize their own rally somewhere else. The police did not do their job here in protecting this right.

  • 56 Kim // Oct 26, 2007 at 10:06 am

    This type of behavior is upsetting. If we are unwilling to listen to opposing views and perhaps actual facts than we stop growing as a nation. We start listening to only those we agree with and start discarding over viewpoints and facts. I hope America wakes up and realizes that the ultra left will shut those down who do not believe as them and bully those who do not agree with them. They are using their clout to shut down opposing views and sometimes actual facts so what is reported is slanted. People have started to believe what they are told and expect people to spoon feed them information rather than investigating the facts. This example at Emory is going on in many universities where they boo our military and scare others who do not agree with illegal immigration and more by calling them rascist and more. Americans need to wise up and not hand over our country to government officials along with constitutional rights and liberties. We also can’t allow the governement to be in charge of our healthcare. Have you looked at the BMV, government scandals and more?

    Like many here, I’m not surprised by the boorish, adolescent behavior of these “students” at an American university when confronted by someone they don’t like, or are told to not like.

    And while a great many “liberals” are that in name only when faced with people of differing opinions, I’ve got to say that I see the same behavior, albeit somewhat less often, from many a Conservative when dealing with someone who disagrees with the jingoistic slogans in support of the Iraq occupation and the age-old War on Drugs.

    When people emotionally wed themselves to causes that they can not logically defend by argument, this sort of childish behavior (screaming, booing, name-calling, lying) is pretty much all that is left for them. It’s always a give-away pointing to the guy with no solid argument to make.

    […] and clout you go to Emory or Agnes Scott. So it comes with little surprise that the school would treat a speaker with this level of disrespect. Keep in mind that the school boasts of the liberal icons like Desmond Tutu and fellow anti-Semite […]

  • 63 Be Honest // Oct 26, 2007 at 1:25 pm

    I am no righty Conservative Religous Right type, but what happened at Emory is inexcusable. Liberalism has at its root “liberal/liberty” coming from the greek Liber, meaning freedom.

    How can you call yourself a liberal, meaning believer in freedom, and shut down speech from someone you disagree with? Its interesting all together that the left call themselves liberals. Being all the way to left throws you over to communisim which, having been in China for a short period, I can tell you has nothing to do with liberty.

    It seems to me that liberals keep going more and more to the left and this past display is nothing more than another demonstration of these antics. I agree that you have the right to throw your temper tantrum just as he had a right to speak, but that tantrum suppressed anothers ability to speak at liberty, how is that liberal?

    When conservatives take the role of tackling the issue of free speech, it pokes a big hole in liberals case, eh? Which I will challenge any “liberal” to offer me a recent time that a liberal was chosen to speak and conservatives blocked the persons right to speak… Granted, on certain conservative talk shows and TV editorial shows liberals are probably not given as much time, but they certainly are not silenced!

    What I am charging is that liberals act according to their name and become the people of liberty for all, not just leftist, communist, or socialist propaganda.

    Being free, is being free to speak the truth, not the freedom to silence those you disagree with. So, instead of allowing conservatives to let you hang yourselves with your own rope, try giving the same medicine. Give conservatives the voice that they are owed in a free society, allow themselves to eat their own words. That is the dirty little secret of free speech. You are free to say what you want, and others are free to judge you based on your words. This is all part of liberty, the name sake of those who chose to deny it to Horowitz.

    Figure out what you truly believe in before expressing your beliefs. If you are socialist/communists, fine. But if you are liberals, that means you believe in freedom. Exercise it, and let others do the same.

    David Horowitz has every right to express his opinions in a forum which (supposedly) encourages expression of thought. Any opposition to Mr. Horowitz’s views should be discussed in an atmosphere of intellectual discourse.

    This episode is an unfortunate blemish on Emory University and the faculty should ensure that future speakers have a better opportunity to disclose their views whether the student body agrees with them or not.

    Too many who call themselves liberal are actually socialists and fascists. You can’t deal with facts and an honest exchange of ideas so you have to shout down the speaker. You and people like you are more dangerous than this speaker.

  • 69 Miguel // Oct 26, 2007 at 3:47 pm

    In all of this madness, one interesting point remains. No whack job leftists is ever capable of generating any genuine rebuttal content to Horowitz factual information. They don’t want to hear any truth or fact because it violates their sheep bleating, knee jerk, brown shirted, brainwashed, intolerant, unthinking world view. Keep shouting down those you can’t bear to hear.

    Remember the infantile games of the 1 year old? Pull that blanket over your head babies, and maybe the Islamic cuthroat genocidal world won’t ‘really’ be there because you ‘hid’ it eh?

    While Goizueta seems like a good school, I’m going to have to question GB’s attempt to impugn the entire rest of the university. I wasn’t there, but what happened sounds like it was too bad for two reasons: 1) that’s rude, and people should get to talk; and 2) This is precisely what Horowitz wants to happen, as it gives him more fodder. I was not at the event, but FYI, here’s an email that went out to the whole Emory community today. I can’t vouch for the accuracy of anything (having not been there) but there does seem to be a level of response:

    To the Campus Community:

    Of all the principles we value at Emory University, the most fundamental is our commitment to the free and unfettered pursuit of the truth in scholarship and teaching. This requires the open exchange of ideas, the freedom to speak at sufficient length to communicate one’s ideas, and the responsibility to listen at sufficient length to allow such communication to occur. When protesters repeatedly disrupt a lecture, as they did Wednesday night, resulting in its premature conclusion, they violate this most basic of all tenets in a university community.

    David Horowitz is a controversial and even, at times, a provocative speaker. However, he was received with unacceptable rudeness when he came to Emory as a guest of a legitimate campus organization, the College Republicans. For our inability to control the reception he received, we apologize.

    Knowing our faculty and students as I do, it seems to me that our own community does indeed understand and honor the fundamental principles of free academic exchange. From the best that we can determine, the majority of the protesters who shouted Mr. Horowitz down were not affiliated with Emory.

    It is worth reminding ourselves and others, in this context, that Emory invites speakers to our campus primarily for the interest and enrichment of the campus community. We open our doors to others as a courtesy. One regrettable consequence of Wednesday night’s assault on free speech is our decision to restrict admission to Glenn Auditorium on Monday afternoon for a lecture by former Palestinian minister of higher education and research Hanan Ashrawi. Admission will be open only to persons with a valid college or university photo ID from Emory or elsewhere. In order to accommodate the interest of persons from the general community, an off-site video feed will be made available in White Hall 208.

    Let me reference again our campus policy on inviting speakers to campus, which was recently articulated by Provost Lewis and Dean of Campus Life Ford. The cornerstone of our policy is our devotion to academic freedom, and the obligation of speakers and audience alike to engage each other with intellectual openness and with personal civility – even when their firmly held views may be poles apart. See

    Emory will continue to be an academic community that provides a forum for the expression and debate of a wide variety of views. We believe that the principles on which America and the American research university were founded depend on such a forum. There is no doubt that we will stumble from time to time as a consequence of our very openness to diverse points of view. But we must continue to take the risks that are entailed by our vision of leadership and courageous inquiry.

    Until WE THE PEOPLE reinsert ourselves into the fabric of AMERICA and our ideals, we lose by default. As despicable as the “useful idiots” at the pinnacle of socialism were (and are) in (NOT) just one of our universities, it is also a welcomed wake up call to those of us with common sense and common decency to listen to opposing views without showing such stupidity and ignorance. (One chooses to act stupidly - ignorance is an inherent trait).
    I’d bet that the majority of the ignorant wah-wahs (cry-babies) have no true ideas in their skulls and wouldn’t be cable of an intelligent conversation with an ameba. So much for the “universities’ intelligence-teaching” - now THAT’S an oxymoron!
    What a pathetic display of juvenile, uninformed ignorance and un-American behavior.
    I reccomend they ALL go to Iran, China, North Korea, Cuba, Mexico, et. al. and live under what they foolishly believe as tolerance, “freedom”: ignorant asses, all. None of the useful IDIOTS have the slightest clue what’s going on, yet will indulge the,selves in their perverted world, demanding and expecting everyone else shut up and sit down. Well, too bad for your ilk - you ARE losers and will continue to flaunt your stupidity to the American people who really do care about freedom - not only of speech, but each and every freedom our country was founded on and so many have given their lives to defend. (Yes, even your sorry wretched lives have been paid for with someone else’s blood and tears) None of you deserve a drop of blood from any military man or woman who give of themselves to keep us safe from the ISLAMO-FASCISTS OF THE WORLD THAT YOU SEEM TO LOVE SO MUCH (no rhymn nor reason there!)
    PEOPLE, PEOPLE, DESPICABLE PEOPLE - GET A LIFE! Try reading our US Constitution and Bill of Rights - you’d be amazed what you might learn…although I doubt there’s one complete brain amongst the lot of you.
