GOP 'Voter Fraud' Fraudster David Horowitz Falls Apart On Air When Questioned...By Me



GOP 'Voter Fraud' Fraudster David Horowitz Falls Apart On Air When Questioned...By Me
Refuses to disclose identity of those he alleges 'committed fraud', lots of it, at brother-in-law's residential care facility...

There's a reason why most Republican wingnuts don't venture outside of the safe confines of Fox "News" or other venues where they won't have to face actual, reality-based information and questions from outside of their comfortable, fact-free bubble.

My conversation on air Thursday with RW "voter fraud" fraudster, commie-hunter, and fact-challenged Fox fave David Horowitz illustrated that point with crystal clarity once again. The result wasn't pretty. At least for him.

When asked for actual facts to back up his extraordinary claims about "Democratic voter fraud" -- specifically, that caretakers at his brother-in-law's residential care facility "committed fraud" by helping the brother-in-law, and purportedly sixty others at the home, to vote -- Horowitz had nothing.

He was, however, able to call me a "communist wanna be", a "liar" and an "extreme partisan" for having displayed the temerity to ask him for such facts. He was even able to pile on top of all of that by claiming (falsely) that I'd called him all sorts of names and even that I had accused him of committing fraud!

That's why these guys don't leave the Fox Fantasy World bubble.

As I say, it wasn't pretty. But the audio, and the background on what happened, all follows below. I think you may enjoy it...

3. I interviewed him once a few years ago. He did the same thing to me.

All I did was refer to him as a conservative in my first question. He got all over me for that, and the rest of the conversation became meaningless. BTW, was not representing any liberal organization at the time, quite the opposite.

For them it's all about outrage over semantics. It defers the process of actual discourse to the 32nd of Never.

6. When you are always on the attack, you never have to defend

So you can lie your ass off and no one will be able to look at the truth.

34. That is the way they argue.......

They don't have facts on their side, so they disrupt and sidetrack the discussion into semantics and strawmen. I first noticed it when I argued politics on a mixed board a decade ago. It was about 75% RW and this was a consistent tactic.

That's why when I see this tactic displayed by posters on DU, I pretty much know where their REAL politics lie.

If you have evidence of a crime you commit a crime if you don't report it to the authorities.

24. David has bipolar radicalism disorder.

He flipped from the Stalinist fringe of the new left to the Fascist fringe of the new right. He has been a consistent authoritarian asshole his entire life.

15. Hope he is getting paid well ...

... for appearing as someone alzheimer's disease plus the temperment and reasoning skills of a six-year-old.

No offense intended to those with alzheimer's ... or those with a six-year-olds. I've dealt with both in my home and this is the best analogy I can draw. Fortunately, I never had to deal with one person incorporating the most difficult/troublesome qualities of both.

That was some disturbing audio.

22. Wow, Horowitz's mind has loose gears running totally amok

He really wanders the landscape trying to justify his beliefs.

Whatever happened to critical reasoning? Not to mention the need for a fact somewhere in the mix???

25. My first experience with this tool was thru a book he wrote...

The Roosevelts - An American Saga

In the book, he elevates TR to God-like status (don't get me wrong, I like TR), but then trashes FDR, Eleanor and their children. A VERY partisan book greatly lacking in historical accuracy. After reading it, I tossed it in the trash, which is something I have NEVER done to any book, ever.

26. K&R. Great interview trying to discuss election integrity with Horowitz' emotional flood of lies

He is not accustomed to dealing with someone like you who has studied the issue in such great detail.

When you ask for evidence he calls you a liar. When you want him to deal with facts he calls you names.

And he knows how to inflame things trying to make the show host so uncomfortable that he will shut down discussion.

I'm glad you and the host continued to have a calm discussion.

asked for him to name names. He is such a fucking ass hold, corrupt piece of shit!

I may be thinking of someone else.

33. No.

The David Horowitz who did Fight Back is sane.

Unlike the one Brad smacked down...
