David Horowitz is a noted conservative thinker, writer and commentator and the Founder and CEO of the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Los Angeles, CA, whose mission is "to defend free societies which are under attack from enemies within and without, both secular and religious;" and further, to defend the principles of individual freedom, the rule of law, private property, limited government and to reestablish academic freedom in American schools. The Freedom Center publishes the online news magazine FrontPageMag.com, where Horowitz serves as Editor-in-Chief. David Horowitz grew up a "red diaper baby" in a communist community in Sunnyside, Queens, and was one of the founders of the New Left in the 1960s and an editor of its largest magazine, Ramparts; but forced to confront some difficult truths about the political left, Horowitz ultimately found a political and intellectual home as a conservative activist.
Cultural critic Camille Paglia has said of David Horowitz: "I respect the astute and rigorously unsentimental David Horowitz as one of America's most original and courageous political analysts. . . .I think that, a century from now, cultural historians will find David Horowitz's spiritual and political odyssey paradigmatic for our time."
Norman Podhoretz, former editor of Commentary magazine, says of Horowitz: "David Horowitz is hated by the Left because he is not only an apostate but has been even more relentless and aggressive in attacking his former political allies than some of us who preceded him in what I once called 'breaking ranks' with that world. He has also taken the polemical and organizational techniques he learned in his days on the left, and figured out how to use them against the Left, whose vulnerabilities he knows in his bones."
Horowitz has written well over a dozen books, including The New York Times Bestseller BIG AGENDA: Trump's Real Plan to Save America, as well as DARK AGENDA: The War to Destroy Christian America, Unholy Alliance, The Black Book of the American Left, Take No Prisoners, Progressive Racism, The ProFessors and his celebrated memoirs Mortality & Faith and Radical Son.
The David Horowitz Freedom Center is located in Los Angeles, CA.
