David Horowitz is on a mission. He's taking out ads in college newspapers to warn at-risk youth about the subversive dangers of Belafonte-ism. But one man can only do so much, and, anyway, he came up with the idea, so why should he have to pay for it too?

"But to place this ad, we need to raise the $58,000.00 media budget in less than ONE WEEK. I need your help. Now. Please help out with a contribution of $500, $250, $100 or $25."

I urge all Horowitz supporters to "give 'til it hurts" and then give even more. If only one Berkeley sophomore is stopped before he or she illegally downloads cuts from Calypso, then there is hope for the future. And, if this campaign is successful, Horowitz will be able to warn our kids about other self-hating African-American agitators: Paul Robeson, Frederick Douglass, Shari Belafonte-Harper and Satan.
