Azadeh Ensha at the Huffington Post discusses Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week—characterized by critics as a fear-mongering publicity ploy by far-right figure David Horowitz.
The purpose of Islamo-Fascism week is:
…to confront the two Big Lies of the political left: that George Bush created the war on terror and that Global Warming is a greater danger to Americans than the terrorist threat. Nothing could be more politically incorrect than to point this out. But nothing could be more important for American students to hear. In the face of the greatest danger Americans have ever confronted, the academic left has mobilized to create sympathy for the enemy and to fight anyone who rallies Americans to defend themselves.
In the entertaining clip below, Josh Marshall provides some background to IFAW and David Horowitz.
