In a recent radio interview to discuss his new book Big Agenda: President Trump's Plan to Save America, Freedom Center founder David Horowitz explained why he objects to the left's phrase "people of color," and a leftwing media watchdog reported on it as if it were somehow outrageous.
Right Wing Watch is a project of wealthy leftist anti-capitalist Norman Lear's People for the American Way. Dedicated to "exposing" the right's "extreme agenda," it reports frequently on Horowitz. Tuesday it posted a snippet of his interview last week on "The Sam Malone Show" and described it as follows:
Horowitz kicked off the interview by saying that “the Democrats are blinded by their hate, it is a party of hate, that’s all it runs on—hate and character assassination.”
After claiming that identity politics “is racist and anti-American,” Horowitz took issue with the term “people of color,” which he said is “not even English” and which he lambasted as “an ideological term to demonize white people.”
Democrats like to use the phrase, he said, because they belong to “a racist party” and seek to portray white people as “the oppressors, the bad guys.”
All of which is true, and indeed, Right Wing Watch didn't bother to refute anything Horowitz said. We're guessing it's because they couldn't.
