And the rhetoric leaking from Geller and Spencer has found sympathetic ears. After Anders Breivik launched an attack on a Norway youth camp that left 77 dead last year, police found a manifesto he penned on the "Islamic Colonization of Europe." Spencer was cited 162 times; Geller was mentioned in 12 instances.

"Geller and Spencer are probably the most important propagandizing Islamophobes in the world," Beirich says. "These people's voices speak very loudly — not just here in the United States, but overseas. And what they do is make Muslim populations susceptible to hate violence."

Yet despite the link between slash-and-burn rhetoric and Norwegian body counts, conservative activists continue to agitate — pushing even beyond Horowitz's comfort zone.

This summer, while protestors rioted in Egypt, Yemen and Tunisia over the film Innocence of Muslims, Geller was prepping a series of ads for New York City and Washington, D.C., subway cars. The text read: "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad."

"Pam, I think she's a very brave woman," Horowitz says. "But she goes over the edge a little bit. The word 'savages' . . . I would have used the word 'barbarians.'"

We used to have a couple come out to Arizona State University in the1980s and go after the professor who was teaching Human Sexual Relations101 (VERY popular class) on the mall every Spring.  Same Modus Operandi- worked okay for them (lots of spare change) until they got invited tospeak in front of  the class and answer questions to the studentsthere.  The professor didn't let them bully people and made sure theywere polite.  They really made for a lively class session.  I've seehorowitz speak before - He was so rude, he shamed the entire human race.

Being a contributor to the Southern Poverty Law Center, I noticed that they've done numerous articles on Horowitz.  Here's one:

@fairymagic13 Yea the article mentions Horowitz, but it is clearly not an article 'on Horowitz.' Please. The article also mischaracterizes Horowitz as a 'right-wing propagandist.' He is right-wing, but is most emphatically NOT a propagandist. Laughable reference. I've read his books. Don't 100% agree with him, but I'm at least proficient in the man's timeline and points of view.
