Why is David Horowitz supporting Sen. Russell Pearce who has ties with anti-semitic groups like FAIR and NumbersUSA?
From SOMOS REPUBLICANS:
Latino GOP Leaders Ask Jewish Leaders Not to Support GOP Politicians Who are Supported By Anti-Semitic Groups
For Immediate Release
26 September 2011
Phoenix, AZ — It has come to the attention of Somos Republicans, the largest Latino Republican group in the country, that David Horowitz of Front Page Magazine will be speaking on behalf of Russell Pearce. David Horowitz — a conservative American of Jewish heritage — is known for his advocacy of conservative principles, support for Israel and his fight for tougher prosecution of the war on terror. His activism demonstrates that conservative and Republican values transcend both color and creed while exploding negative stereotypes planted by liberal Democrats. Somos Republicans shares this commitment to racial and religious inclusiveness.
We strongly urge Mr. Horowitz to not hand Russell Pearce the fig leaf he needs by speaking on his behalf.
Our concern is that Horowitz will be providing legitimacy to Russell Pearce, a man who in 2006 disseminated White Supremacist propaganda denying the Holocaust. Pearce also endorsed and filmed campaign promotional materials for Neo-Nazi leader, JT Ready in 2006 and appearing with Ready at a political rally in 2007. When asked by a local reporter about his son, Joshua’s “Iron Eagle,” Neo-Nazi tattoo, Pearce seemed oddly unconcerned and declared his opposition to tattoos rather than forth-rightly condemning anti-Semitism and domestic terrorist groups like the Neo-Nazis. For these and many other reasons, it is clear that Pearce does not share Somos Republicans’ and David Horowitz’s vision of a Republican party and a conservative movement which respects the dignity of all human beings. We strongly urge Mr. Horowitz to not hand Russell Pearce the fig leaf he needs by speaking on his behalf.
