As we foresaw, when we adopted the name “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week,” the Left has reacted and guaranteed our success. The goal of the left is to suppress mention of the term Islamo-Fascism because for the left America is the enemy. Since the left is at war with America, it cannot afford to have the evils of Islamo-Fascism discussed.
The internet is abuzz with denunciations of Islamo Fascism Awareness Week and plans for disruption. The American-Arab Anti Discrimination Committee – a far left outfit — has written intimidating letters to the presidents of all the universities where we have planned events, trying to get them to preemptively cancel our events. Hardcore organizations like the Socialist Workers’ Party and the Revolutionary Communist Party (whose members physically attacked me at a speech last year) are organizing non-stop against us and have promised violent disruptions. Accordingly we have assigned bodyguards to our main speakers and alerted campus security wherever we are planning to go.
The lesson is clear: the left will welcome and defend the “free speech” rights of the Iranian dictator, Ahmadinejad, a murderer of American troops in Iraq, but will go all out to try to stop a discussion of Islamo Fascism itself.
