We remarked on round I here; in round II, Professor Smith calls out Mr. Horowitz on a series of lies and fabrications about events at Bloomsburg University, where Professor Smith teaches. Professor Smith's conclusion is apt:
Horowitz would be more help to conservatives by either learning to tell the truth or shutting up. I have no doubts that conservatives are just as embarrassed as are centrists and liberals by his fabrications, misrepresentations and generally outrageous behavior. He only serves to scare sober minds away from the conservative movement. As we have seen in Horowitz's tirade against everyone on the Select Committee who boldly stood their ground, and who rejected his rhetoric and falsehoods, including those Republicans on the committee who voted to remove the Horowitz-Armstrong manifesto (the report's Summary), all who disagree with him are enemies--including the very conservatives he claims to represent. I think that it's time for whoever pulls his purse-strings to give the man a well-earned "time out."
