Americans For Prosperity’s Threat
While opposing an integration plan for black school children, Americans for Prosperity North Carolina director Dallas Woodhouse threatened Georgetown professor of journalism Christopher Chambers. At one point during a heated argument, Woodhouse threatened to “knock” Chambers “for a loop.” He then asked the the host, Alyona Minkovski, to “shut his disgusting mouth up please so I can speak.”
Chambers alluded to the fact that Americans for Prosperity was founded by David and Charles Koch, whose father Fred Koch created the anti-civil rights organization the John Birch Society, which also organized conservatives in favor of racial segregation. Woodhouse works for the Koch brothers and North Carolina right-wing financier Art Pope. Woodhouse has also been instrumental in orchestrating various Tea Party protests.
