David Horowitz

David HorowitzBorn: 10-Jan-1939
Birthplace: Forest Hills, NY
Occupation: Activist, Author

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Conservative activist

The prototypical red diaper baby, David Horowitz was raised by Marxist parents and naturally followed suit. He grew up, moved to Berkeley, and joined the Black Panthers. It was only after one of his close friends got murdered by the Panthers (at least, that's what Horowitz believes) that he began to re-think Socialism. His political views eventually swung almost as far right-of-center as they had been left.

According to Horowitz's autobiography Radical Son: A Generational Odyssey, his third marriage broke under the strain of his wife's drug addiction:

I confronted [Shay] now and reminded her that marriage was a commitment, and that she had violated a basic term of ours, which was her promise to give up drugs. The futility of what I was saying overwhelmed me as I spoke. She had revealed to me, earlier, that her drug was crack cocaine, and -- as this episode showed -- she was still out of control.

In his book Hating Whitey, Horowitz dismissed Dr. Cornel West as "an intellectual of modest talents whose skin color has catapulted him into academic stardom with a six-figure income."

"Jimmy Carter is disgusting. He was a terrible President, and he's been the worst ex-President this country has ever had." [C-SPAN, August 2, 2004]

"What I've shown is that there are only a couple of degrees of separation between anybody on the left and the terrorists -- and that includes people in the Democratic Party, even those who are anti-terrorist." [The Washington Times, March 24, 2005]
