TO THE EDITOR:
Last Monday, UNC’s College Republicans displayed David Horowitz’s propaganda piece entitled “Wall of Lies” in the Pit. The Horowitz Foundation has a long history of reaching out to student groups in order to spread its message of fear, division and thinly veiled racist attacks on the Palestinian, Arab and Muslim communities.
The College Republicans’ agreement to host it should be disturbing to those of us who value equality, social justice and constructive dialogue on campus.
The “Wall” uses a font resembling dripping blood, with a masked figure holding an AK-47 and a Quran as a backdrop, while launching sweeping (yet unsourced) attacks which paint all Palestinians as enemies of Israel and potential terrorists.
Further, it denigrates all pro-Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim populations on campus by suggesting that they are also enemies of Israel and cannot be trusted.
