Skip to comments.Horowitz Targeted by Communist Hit Squad
Posted on 10/31/2005 9:55:26 AM PST by Richard Poe
"No free speech for fascists!" screamed two burly ruffians as they charged the stage where David Horowitz was attempting to speak. "I probably would have suffered some bodily harm," Horowitz later wrote on his blog. Luckily, he writes, about half a dozen supporters "sprang to my rescue and beat the living crap out of the two deserving reds, dragging them unceremoniously from the theater." (1)
Mr. Horowitz was fortunate. But he remains a target. We now know that the October 21 attack at the Liberty Film Festival in Los Angeles was no random event. It is part of a wider effort, orchestrated by the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP).
The RCP's so-called "World Can't Wait!" campaign seeks to intimidate conservatives through thuggery.
Screenshot of the hit list posted on the Web site of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP). At least two people on the list — one of them David Horowitz — have been subjected to aggressive physical harassment by operatives of the RCP's "World Can't Wait!" campaign.
On its Web site, the RCP has published a hit list of nine prominent conservatives whom it deems "Nazis" or "fascists", deserving of special odium. David Horowitz appears on the list, as does Berkeley law professor John Choon Yoo.
Charles Clark Kissinger of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP)
RCP thugs invaded Professor Yoo's classroom last week, on October 26, forcing him to flee. The perpetrators later boasted of their achievement on their blog. (3)
The nine names on the RCP hit list are: Ann Coulter; Lieutenant General William G. “Jerry” Boykin; David Horowitz; Pat Robertson; William Bennett [pdf file]; Louisiana National Guard Brigadier General Gary Jones [pdf file]; Barbara Bush [pdf file]; Congressman Richard Baker [pdf file] and Berkeley law professor John Choon Yoo, in that order.
The World Can't Wait! campaign appears to be the brainchild of one Charles Clark Kissinger, a former SDS leader who today serves as a high-level organizer in the Revolutionary Communist Party. (4) Kissinger created the anti-war coalition Not in Our Name, which is working closely with the World Can't Wait! campaign.
The attacks on Horowitz and Yoo are just the beginning. Kissinger's World Can't Wait! network plans a nationwide mobilization beginning November 2 — the first anniversary of George W. Bush's alleged theft of the 2004 election (yes, they claim he stole that election too).

Funny how leftist never want any free speech for anyone but themselves. Just like the REAL Nazis and Communists used to feel...
If there were a Conservative website that published a "HITLIST" the MS would go Berzerk-ley..........
Bring it on, Socialist Weasels.
These folks are just dingbats, and dangerous ones at that!
The fact that they include former first lady Barbara Bush (Barbara Bush !!!! ???) makes it a federal crime, which the Secret Service is empowered to not only investigate but to actively intervene to prevent them from carrying out their threats, without further court action.
They can, for example, enter and search the premises of these people (offices or homes) without a specific court issued warrant based solely on this threat. They can also detain these individuals indefinitely, so long as they consider them to be a threat to the proetected person.
Proof positive they know they're losing the ideological war!
I volunteer to protect Ann Coulter from these thugs. Anytime, anyplace.
Barabara Bush is on the list. Does the Secret Service cover the spouse of a former POTUS?
I was asked to work OT for their protest in Seattle. I'm already working that night and can't do 24 hours as I don't drink coffee.
there is nothing funny about it... that is exactly what they want, free speech only for them and to exercise that free speech in any manifestation they wish without threat of retaliation... what is needed here is for the fbi to name this organization a domestic terrorist group and shut them down...
if this doesn't get nipped in the bud and quickly, you will start seeing much more of these groups springing up and using these tactics of 'revolutionary' take-overs of segments of our rights and liberties...
In reality, it was the Communists above all others who prevented revolution in Spain. Later, when the Right Wing forces were in full control, the Communists showed themselves willing to go a great deal further than the Liberals in hunting down revolutionary leaders.
Between the Communists and those who claim to stand to the Left of them there is a real difference. The Communists hold that Fascism can be beaten by alliance with sections of the capitalist class (the Popular Front); their opponents hold that this maneuver simply gives Fascism new breeding-grounds. The question has got to be settled; to make the wrong decision may be to land ourselves in for centuries of semi-slavery.
Losing the ideological war is right and they are terrified.
He looks like a sourpuss version of Henry Gibson.
What other kind of communist is there?
not sure, but she is also the mother of the current POTUS - if GWB finds out about this, he should unleash the hounds of hell on these commies.
JB, this looks like something you could cure real fast and I would pay to see it. May I nominate you for Secretary of Physical Intimidation of Marxists?
Reminiscent of the tactics that the Nazis used in their rise to power.
One of these days, these leftist nuts are going to kill one of the conservative commentators, and the local DA's who've been treating these guys with kidgloves are going to pay the price.
Moral Absolutes Ping.
Here it is in action - speak the truth, risk assault or worse from actual leftists, who actually exist, and actually believe in lies. And may be ready to beat you up to prove their themselves right! Liberals/leftists are mentally ill.
Freepmail me if you want on/off this pinglist.
After making their threats, I wonder if any of these scum sucking dirt bags ever get challenged to a fist fight?
I think you mean "written in 1943".
Why are they still at liberty if they really have a "hit list" and employ these thuggish tactics, and the mother of the President is on the list? Doesn't make sense.
Remember that when Reagan (as President of the SAG) opposed Commies in SAG, Molotov cocktails were thrown at his house and he started packing a gun. Commies are nothing but worthless thugs and bums.
A former SDS member, eh. Imagine that. If these guys are threatening people on the internet, they should be arrested.
Nope, but still my bad. It was published in 1938. Orwell was in Spain from December 1936 to June 1937.
I hope that there is video of all these attacks collected at some central place to prove how clueless these losers are.
A video would also be useful in prosecuting them.
I think you're right!
This would be a real news story - if the MSM reported news.
A legend in his own mind. That picture's a riot.
You say it would be a real news story? I must take exception to your use of the conditional mode. This is a real news story.
After all, it was reported on MoonbatCentral.com and FreeRepublic.com. How much realer can it get? :-D
I don't doubt that there are some of us who have lists of their own. And we sure know who's been naughty and who's been nice, don't we?
Mention "list" and "Republican" in the same sentence and Nixon's List comes to mind (providing you're old enough).......
Communists are absolutely evil.
And Fascists/Nazis are not leftists.
I think that it is part of a package deal!
