Famed documentary filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza and former Weather Underground domestic terrorist Bill Ayers are slated to lock horns in what should be a blockbuster debate on “American exceptionalism” at the University of Michigan.

The event, sponsored by the Young America’s Foundation, is scheduled for Wednesday, February 3 at 6:00 p.m. Eastern, at the university’s Ann Arbor campus and may be viewed live online at livestream.com/yaf/debate, according to the sponsor’s website.

The question that will be posed to the debaters is “What’s So Exceptional About America?”

Young America’s Foundation reported:

D’Souza and Ayers debated famously in a YAF-sponsored event at Dartmouth in 2014 and live on Fox News’s The Kelly File that year as well. In previous debates, Ayers has declared that he’s “not proud to be an American” and accused the country of “doing horrible things.” like committing genocide.

The pair’s tense exchanges in past debates will come to a head as they confront one another over this controversial topic on which their opinions are diametrically opposed.


“Young Americans for Freedom is excited to host this very high-profile event at the University,” Grant Strobl, chairman of Young Americans for Freedom at the U of M said. “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.”

The debate’s moderator will be Dr. Andrew Martin, Dean of the university’s College of Literature, Science, and the Arts
