Fallout from Emory Horowitz Incident

4 11 2007

The protester-interupted David Horowitz speech is now posted on YouTube. Looks like someone captured the whole thing on a camera phone. As a result, audio/visual quality isn’t that good.

It’s in four parts…but the one below shows when things really got out of hand. See the full series here.

The Emory Wheel has dedicated a whole page of its website to various points of view on the incident. See them here. Regardless of political outlook, most members of the Emory community cringe at the infringement on freedom of speech.

Moral superiority comes in all shapes and sizes, liberal or conservative. It is seen in both terminology like “Islamo-facism”, and in the form of protesters who shout down a civilized debate in an academic setting.
