NY Post: American college students have a soft spot for charitable giving — even when the recipient is the Taliban.
In his shocking new video “Students Fund the Taliban,” New York filmmaker Ami Horowitz hits up the campus of legendarily leftist school University of California, Berkeley, with a modest pitch: raise money for the Taliban to perpetrate its attacks on Americans.
“We’re raising money for the Taliban!” “Get your Taliban here,” Horowitz, 46, crows in the revealing three-minute “gotcha” clip, canvassing for terror with the blitheness of someone handing out coupons for a sandwich shop.
The self-described “guerilla journalist” is best known for his 2017 video “Stockholm Syndrome,” about social unrest in Sweden amid mass Islamic migration. He appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and CNN to discuss the clip, which was also referenced by Jimmy Kimmel on that year’s Oscars telecast.
But Horowitz, founder of Disruptive Pictures, told The Post that even he didn’t think he could pull off his latest stunt.
Opinion: For the low low price of just $54,000 per year at UC Berkley, your son or daughter will learn to truly hate America.

After Adolf Hitler became German Chancellor in January 1933, the new Nazi government began an effort to completely reorder public and private life in Germany.1 Hitler and his party quickly targeted German universities—among the most elite in the world at the time—for restructuring according to Nazi principles.2 While the Nazi Ministry of Education initiated reforms, local Nazi organizations and student activists worked to bring Nazi ideals to German campuses. These forces, along with increasing antisemitism under Nazi rule, transformed everyday life at German universities. Throughout this period, students, faculty, and staff made individual decisions that both upheld and opposed Nazi ideology.3
With the passage of the “Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service” in 1933, most Jewish professors in Germany were dismissed from their positions. Others, such as Professor Eugen Mittwoch, were able to keep their posts temporarily only due to the political value of their research. After first purging Jewish and “politically undesirable” faculty, the regime then targeted the student body with the “Law Against Overcrowding in Schools and Universities.” As Nazi authorities continued to “Aryanize” German universities, Jews increasingly lost the opportunity to teach or study. Many non-Jewish Germans sought to benefit from their persecution. Read More
