Below is the video of David Horowitz speaking at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on April 13, 2015. His speech was delivered at a teach-in for the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s “Jew-Hatred on Campus Awareness Week,” a campaign that the Freedom Center launched this spring to raise awareness of campus anti-Semitism and the links between campus hate groups, such as Students for Justice in Palestine, and Islamic terrorism.
Horowitz began his speech by showing the Freedom Center’s Wall of Truth video, which exposes all the lies about Israel on university and college campuses.
Horowitz’s speech sparked an uproar among Muslim and Arab students at UNC who responded to his address by launching a hashtag campaign at #notsafeUNC, claiming that his speech made them feel unsafe on campus. The campaign’s opening statement on Tumblr characterized Horowitz’s remarks as “defamatory and egregious Anti-Arab and Anti-Muslim sentiments” and “baseless claims to delegitimize and vilify Muslim and Arab students.”
The UNC College Republicans who hosted Horowitz on campus defended his right to speak and pointed out that an opposing viewpoint should not be perceived as a threat. “I think it’s a little disingenuous to be claiming feelings of unsafety from remarks made by a speaker who lectures on college campuses fairly regularly,” commented Frank Pray, chairman of the UNC College Republicans. “I think that being uncomfortable is not the same thing as being unsafe.”
Reason Magazine’s blog also came to Horowitz’s defense, running a piece by Nick Gillespie titled “If David Horowitz Speaking on Your Campus Makes You Feel Unsafe, The Terrorists Have Won.”
