D'Souza To Debate Bill Ayers On American Exceptionalism

“What’s So Exceptional About America?” That’s the question Dinesh D’Souza and Bill Ayers are slated to debate at the University of Michigan. The Young America’s Foundation is sponsoring what is sure to be a firework-filled event.

“Young Americans for Freedom is excited to host this very high profile event at the University,” said Grant Strobl, chairman of Young Americans for Freedom at the University of Michigan. “On a campus that is often viewed as expressing one ideological viewpoint, we are excited to break the school’s culture of political correctness and have a meaningful debate on policy. We expect a packed house and a lively debate.”

D’Souza is a conservative author and producer of the controversial film 2016: Obama’s America. Bill Ayers is a professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago. But, he’s more infamously known for founding the domestic terror group The Weather Underground that bombed both the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon in the 1970s. As of a few years ago, he is still defending those attacks. Ayers has gained additional notoriety by stating he’s “not proud to be American.”

D’Souza and Ayers have sparred previously about American ideals at Dartmouth University. In that two-year old tussle, also organized by YAF, D’Souza argued in defense of Americans’ justifiable pride in the principles established by our Founding Fathers.

The two will meet on the Michigan campus on Feb. 3 at 6:00 p.m. EST. You can watch it live online at livestream.com/yaf/debate.
