Horowitz's Notepad: A Response to Eric Alterman By: David Horowitz
FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, June 25, 2001


ERIC ALTERMAN apparently thinks lying is a form of mooning.  In his case it’s also compulsive, relentless and boring (“Dead Again,” The Nation, July 2, 2001).

For the record, I am obviously not a “staunch defender of anti-Semites’ right to blood-libel Jews,” as he hilariously proposes; nor did I “expunge” or remove a single word, sentence, paragraph – let alone an entire article – by the equally addle-brained Evan Gahr, from my website.

The Alterman Threat

“Do you really want to be a useful idiot for Paul Weyrich? … Why give Eric Alterman your head on a silver platter? … . Do you really want to piss all over me?… This may sound pompous, but you have a lot more to lose here than I do. I broke a major story about a demented anti-Semite among modern conservatives.  You are now going to look foolish shilling for him.  Who the fuck is gonna give you money after this? The Pioneer Fund?  It's custom made for Alterman to embarrass your donors.”

Evan Gahr, in an e-mail to David Horowitz, April 22, 2001

“…this could be the demise of David Horowitz.”

Evan Gahr, in an interview with The Forward, April 27, 2001

Nation readers interested in the facts – Gahr’s original article and Weyrich’s, my commentaries on Gahr and Weyrich, Gahr’s infantile complaints, Crouch’s column, my answer, and an account of the slanders against Laszlo Pastor by the Soviet occupiers of Communist Hungary, which Alterman and Conason eagerly spread – can find them without effort on my “censorious” website at www.FrontPageMag.com  (“The Evan Gahr Affair – A Full Archive”)

Such a waste of valuable Nation space that could have been put to better use defending the oppressed.
