Reparations Ad Campaign
In January 2001,
David Horowitz attempted to publish his essay, "Ten
Reasons Why Reparations are a Bad Idea and Racist Too"
as a paid advertisement
in a number of campus newspapers. Horowitz’s attempt to exercise
his right to free speech was met by violence, outrage, censorship
and a media hailstorm that continues to this day.
Thanks to Horowitz, the Left
was caught with its proverbial pants down. Its plan to impose
slave reparations on America was exposed for all to see. The Left
was forced to debate the issue in public, long before it was ready
to do so.
Here is the story of how one
man with a word processor and a modest ad budget managed to shake
the Left to its foundations, rattle the media establishment and
expose the hypocrisy of campus speech codes.
