Americans for Prosperity Foundation announced Monday that David Horowitz will be speaking at its 7th Annual “Defending the American Dream” Summit this Labor Day weekend.
“I’m very excited to announce the additions of David Horowitz and Bill Whittle to the Defending the American Dream Summit,” said AFP Foundation President Tim Phillips. “These two men have devoted their lives to the cause of freedom and economic prosperity. Each has contributed greatly to the ongoing conversation about our country’s future and the threats we face together.”
Phillips fails to mention that Horowitz has also devoted his life to being racist and Islamophobic. His far-right think tank that funds “counter-Jihad” activities and targets college campuses, giving horrifically Islamophobic speeches. He and his organization do not limit their bigotry to Islam and Muslims, however. About African Americans, Horowitz has said: “What about the debt blacks owe to America? If not for the sacrifices of white soldiers and a white American president…blacks in America would still be slaves.”
The Summit is scheduled for Friday, August 30 and Saturday, August 31 at the Loews Royal Pacific Hotel at Universal Studios Orlando Resort in Orlando, Florida. Its purpose is to bring together “free-market champions from Main Street to Capitol Hill for a weekend of education, networking, strategy, and celebration of the American Dream.”
