The College Republicans at Saint Louis University say school officials blocked their efforts to have David Horowitz speak on campus during October. The university says it did not ban his talk but wanted to make sure his views on Islam and terrorism were balanced with other views.
Author and activist David Horowitz was invited to speak at Saint Louis University by the SLU College Republicans and Young America’s Foundation on Oct. 13. SLU officials, however, had problems with the subject matter of Horowitz’s proposed speech, entitled “An Evening with David Horowitz: Islamo-Fascism Awareness and Civil Rights.”
Today’s Inside Higher Ed covers Saint Louis University’s decision to block David Horowitz from delivering an address called “Islamo-Fascism Awareness and Civil Rights.” Apparently, the university believed the program as planned was “attacking another faith” and could cause “derision” on campus (whatever that means).
