Conservative commentator David Horowitz lashed out Thursday at University of California-Berkeley President Janet Napolitano in the wake of a violent campus riot that forced the cancellation of a speech by provocative Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
In an interview with Fox News' Lou Dobbs, Horowitz, the author of the best-selling "Big Agenda: President Trump's Plan to Save America," slammed the former secretary of Homeland Security under President Barack Obama for providing "sanctuary" on campus to illegal immigrants, calling it a "violation of the Patriot Act."
"They encourage this," Horowitz said of the protest. "Why weren't people arrested? I can't go to campuses without bodyguards."
"They all need to be prosecuted," he added.
"Sure, defund them – make them pay," Horowitz said, referring to President Donald Trump's response to the mayhem.
Horowitz said "the one good thing" that's happened is that "with the election of Trump, now we have an attorney general who'll investigate."
"They are fascists," Horowitz said of the protesters. "Throw them in jail. That's where they belong."
Horowitz's book – which has earned praise from Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Dinesh D'Souza and other leading conservatives – is the first major tome to be released on Trump's presidency.
"This is an administration under siege," Horowitz told Dobbs.
"We have a seditious democratic party that is destroying the American electoral system. We have actresses calling for a military coup, we have Democrats sabotaging an incoming administration, and a State Department leaking presidential conversations. It's a mess."
