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.
