I saw this item on Matt Welch`s blog
Luke Ford, Covering a David Horowitz Conference on Illegal Immigration in Beverly Hills:
The audience of about 100 people is all white. There`s much more of interest in his reporting, but that bit stuck out.
Really? What stuck when I read the thing
David Horowitz doesn`t mind tackling the controversial (with the elites only, regular folks are dead-set against illegal immigration).
There`s more on this conference on Cathy Seipp`s blog
about the immigration conference, including quotes from Heather Mac Donald:
Heather talked about the taboo we have now about illegal immigration`s effect on crime. "Reporters just don`t bother to ask," she said. "In all the of the [Jose Raul] Pena stories, [Pena`s 19-month-old daughter was accidentally shot by the LAPD after he used her as a shield in a violent standoff] the L.A. Times has mentioned once that Pena was here illegally. The New York Times hasn`t deigned to mention it a single time."
and Mark Krikorian:
"Any system that a Mexican busboy can slip through is one that an Al Qaeda terrorist can slip through."
. But the busboys
are bad enough.
However, returning to what originally struck Matt Welch, the putatively all white audience, (Cathy Seipp estimated 95%) I`d guess that David Horowitz sent out invitations without regard to race, creed, or color, and the white people were who showed up.
