From the Pen of David Horowitz: December 24, 2009


Ten years later, I am still pushing on. The universe I inhabit remains a mystery but I go on living and writing nonetheless, as though there were a reason for both. I have survived long enough to see my time map run in reverse. The future is now a dwindling proposition. [...]

fifty years ago this spring, Jackie Robinson broke the color bar in baseball. The events that followed provide a lesson for Black History Month — which ends this week — that many civil rights leaders seem to have forgotten. Following Robinson’s historic breakthrough, as everybody knows, other black athletes followed his example and professional basketball [...]

How many poor people have progressives starved since 1917? It’s a good question and somebody should do the research and publish it.Russia was the breadbasket of Europe until progressives seized power in that year and started instituting policies to “share the wealth.” For the next 70 years until socialism collapsed, Russia was a [...]

I remember vividly an episode in the mid-70s, when one of the Panther arms caches, a house on 29th Street in East Oakland, was raided by the police and 1,000 weapons including machine guns, grenade launchers and anti-tank guns were uncovered. Party attorney Charles Garry held a press conference at which he claimed that the [...]

A new scholarly study by two civil rights veterans has now been introduced into this debate. Stephan and Abigail Thernstrom’s America In Black and White reconstructs the history of racial progress and conflict in the postwar era, and examines the impact of affirmative action solutions. The authors cite a statement made in 1996 by Atlanta’s [...]

Forty years ago, I wrote the first book about the New Left, which was also a kind of manifesto of our publicly proposed agendas for a more democratic and racially equal America. I say “publicly proposed” because as leftists we knew we could not announce what we really intended which was a socialist revolution in [...]

What can justify the nihilism of the revolutionary agenda? Only a vision of the coming apocalypse. Only a vision of the existing order as totally unjustified, unnatural, destructive. “Better Red Than Dead.” To those of us who were radicals in the Sixties, this famous slogan had a different meaning than it had for liberals to [...]

After Betty’s murder, I ceased to be politically active. I couldn’t even think about politics apart from these events. In my heart, I knew that it would not be possible for me to work for a cause again until I had resolved the issues of her death. As New Leftists, we felt ourselves immunized from [...]

The scope of this cult is indicated by the proliferation of lesser Chomskys who feed the hungers of movement activists for anti-American litanies and rationales. Most prominent among these is Chomsky’s intellectual twin, the popular historian Howard Zinn. Like Chomsky, Zinn has produced a corpus of work that is a cartoon version of American history [...]
