Will slandered professor Anthony Hall soon return to the University that has so mistreated him?

By Kevin BarrettVeterans Today Editor

The witch-hunt against University of Lethbridge professor Anthony Hall may have just ended not with a bang but with a whimper. And it is the Israel lobby group B’nai Brith Canada, and its flunkies at the University of Lethbridge, who are whimpering.

The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) just issued a stinging reprimand for University of Lethbridge president Mike Mahon, a glorified gym teacher who unilaterally suspended Professor Hall without pay because he disagrees with Hall’s political views. See:

Lethbridge University President Says He Can Fire Tenured Faculty at Will for No Reason

Here is CAUT’s statement:

screen-shot-2016-12-06-at-11-19-03-pm

CAUT is using extremely strong language. The statement accuses Mike Mahon of violating “all principles of due process and natural rights” and “denying…legal rights” i.e. violating the law.

CAUT is not only threatening all-out legal action, but also “imposing censure” on the University of Lethbridge. This is a formal process that amounts to a complete boycott of the University of Lethbridge by the entire Canadian academic community – a sort of scholarly BDS action. Professors would refuse to work there, students would refuse to study there, and all Canadian academicians would essentially consider that the “University of Lethbridge” no longer existed.

How could the University of Lethbridge resolve the situation? I spoke to Professor Hall this morning. He was optimistic about the long-term prospects of his academic freedom struggle, and grateful to CAUT for doing the right thing. But he also hastened to point out that Mike Mahon and others at the University had created an extremely hostile work environment for him, and that the University of Lethbridge needs to do much more than merely allowing him to return to teaching in the horrendous environment they have created for him.

By suspending Professor Hall without pay, without any form of due process, the University essentially endorsed the outrageous, libelous lies concocted by the B’nai Brith and its suspected confederates. The biggest lie, the one that launched the entire witch hunt, was a Zionist-fabricated “kill all Jews” image that was mysteriously planted on Professor Hall’s Facebook page without his knowledge. B’nai Brith and Facebook conspired to create a media scandal about the image, and despite Hall’s complete innocence, media outlets including the Lethbridge Herald and CBC labored to fabricate a spurious link between the horrific, genocidal image and Professor Hall in their coverage of the incident. Rather than reporting the truth – that Professor Hall was the innocent victim of a smear campaign – they absurdly implied that Professor Hall himself wanted to “kill all Jews” !

The genocidal image was created by a Florida-based Jewish Zionist false flag terrorist named Joshua Goldberg (who has been arrested for plotting fake “Islamic terrorism”) and then planted on Professor Hall’s Facebook page by persons unknown. Though the planted image was credited to “Glen Davidson,” an Alberta resident, Davidson  says he was not the source of the image, and does not know how it came to be surreptitiously planted, under his name, on Professor Hall’s Facebook page. See:

The PLANTED weaponized image that got Professor Anthony Hall suspended

screen-shot-2016-12-08-at-5-19-25-pm

We now know that this image was produced by Florida-based Jewish Zionist false flag terrorist Joshua Goldberg, planted on Professor Tony Hall’s Facebook page by an unknown hacker, and then used by B’nai Brith to launch a witch hunt against Professor Anthony Hall, who was completely innocent of any connection whatsoever to the image.

This is B’nai Brith’s tweet slandering Professor Hall. B’nai Brith’s own confederates appear to have manufactured and planted the image on Professor Hall’s Facebook page, then spammed Canada with press releases blaming Professor Hall, who had no idea the image was there!

Why would B’nai Brith and its accomplices target Professor Hall for this kind of slander operation? Presumably they disapprove of Hall’s research and public statements on various controversial issues, especially his work on false flag terrorism. (Hall has interpreted such events as 9/11 and the Ottawa capitol shooting as apparent false flag public relations stunts designed to further the Zionist war on Islam and Muslims.)

CanadaBBLOBBY3 copy 5The University of Lethbridge, by implicitly endorsing B’nai Brith’s libelous big lie, has managed to tarnish Professor Hall’s reputation on campus to the point that many students and colleagues have accepted the false notion that Hall is a “genocidal anti-Semite.” Hall has suffered hostile treatment on and off campus as a result of the University’s going along with the B’nai Brith’s witch hunt.

At a very minimum, the University needs to:

*Fire president Mike Mahon and Board Chairman Kurt E. Schlachter;

*Apologize in the strongest possible terms;

*Vow to support Professor Hall’s academic freedom to study, write, and speak about any and all issues;

*And make it absolutely clear that Professor Hall has done nothing wrong, but has in fact been doing exactly what all tenured professors are implicitly required to do by virtue of their tenure: Investigate the  most controversial issues and pursue the truth wherever it leads, no matter how much  powerful interest groups may be displeased.

University of Lethbridge Suspension of Tenured Professor Lacks Due Diligence

No one should be under the illusion that University of Lethbridge president Dr. Mike Mahon is giving the case of suspended professor Dr. Anthony Hall proper legal procedure and due diligence.

In case anyone wonders what “due diligence” actually means, it’s about impartially following the rules set out in the university’s Board-Faculty Association Collective Agreement, not just calling a meeting or two to air opinions.

A tenured professor cannot be suspended as a precautionary measure, “just in case” something went wrong. One doesn’t need a lawyer to understand this. One does need conscience, ethical principles and the ability to actually read and interpret the articles of a collective agreement.

Accusations by special-interest groups are levelled against academics all the time, not only concerning their research – which may upset prevailing biases and mindsets – but also to cast aspersions on their character. In a democratic society such accusations don’t form a legitimate basis for even starting an investigation.

In the case of a professor supposedly teaching falsehoods in class, the basis for factually determining truth or lies must be scrutinized at ground level. University presidents have no business interfering with the process, and for good reason.

How on earth can the president of an academic institution know if a professor’s course material is false? Unless the president happens to be a specialist in the same discipline as the professor being criticized (and such is not the case with the University of Lethbridge situation), that individual is at a distant arm’s length of the lecture-hall.

It is the community of professors themselves, not top-down administrators, who are vocationally mandated to seek and define truth. That’s the whole point of having a tenure process. Allowing administrators such as Dr. Mike Mahon to take unilateral punitive action due to subjectively-driven external complaints is akin to allowing a Parliament Hill custodian dictate House of Commons protocol.

A little history is in order when considering the value and necessity of due process.

When Phillippe Rushton, a former University of Western Ontario professor whose theories on race and genetics raised heated controversy in 1989, was discovered to have benefited in his research from the financial support of white supremacist groups, the court of public opinion wanted him fired on the spot. That was not allowed to happen.

Although Rushton (who died in 2012) had few influential defenders, “due process” meant that he was subjected to the same annual academic evaluation as anyone else on faculty, where the protocol would be to suspend a professor after a series of failing scores on criteria covering a wide range of academic and pedagogical criteria.

Despite the hue and cry around Rushton’s case, people were decent back then; they understood he was being targeted for a reason other than “academic failure.” Rushton left active teaching of his own volition and continued on in his research for nearly a quarter-century without any further controversy. His published opinions and findings on racial and gender issues were no more palatable to most of us than before, but we’d entered the “new normal” of post-9/11 society by then and the paradigm had changed.

So, what happened after 9/11? The old days had a code of conduct, embodied in formal terms such as “due process.” Judge R.D. Fratkin wrote regarding the criminal case of once high-profile activist and MP Svend Robinson, “As I say, the public, at least in Canada, I think, has always lived by the sort of guiding principle [that] you don’t kick somebody when they’re down.” In our post-9/11 world of continual electronic downloading and instant media reaction, the new way of dealing with people and things we dislike, or don’t understand, is reactive paranoia.

“Unfortunately, Zionist groups, traditionally defensive and hyper-reactive, are thriving on a climate where everything and everyone is fair game to be judged via social media before informed and impartial “due process” can ever take place. The new mantra: Kick a person only when s/he is down, and just keep on kicking … truth is irrelevant.”

Unfortunately, Zionist groups, traditionally defensive and hyper-reactive, are thriving on a climate where everything and everyone is fair game to be judged via social media before informed and impartial “due process” can ever take place. The new mantra: Kick a person only when s/he is down, and just keep on kicking … truth is irrelevant.

Another historical example of uninformed public censure over-riding and even hijacking due process is the case of once high-profile activist MP Svend Robinson – perhaps the first victim of compromised due process in Canadian political history. He is the man that proposed that September 11 be designated as “Chile Day”, to mark the overthrow of Chilean president Salvador Allende’s democratically elected government on September 11, 1973.

Among a number of gaffes committed during his turbulent career, Robinson made the tactical error in 2002 of attempting to bypass Israeli security to visit Nobel Peace Prize winner Yasser Arafat. Zionist groups – including the one now trying to destroy the career of Dr. Anthony Hall – had a field day raising vitriolic protest against the NDP MP when the international controversy broke in the media.

How did then NDP federal leader Alexa McDonough react to what Zionists called the “travesty” of Robinson’s action? She stripped him of his prestigious Foreign Relations portfolio, and shortly thereafter resigned the party leadership. Alexa McDonough had been known in Halifax to be sympathetic to the Palestinian cause until that time. Two for two in favour of the Zionist fear-mongers … and no due process.

Which brings us full circle back to 2016 and the Zionist hijacking of due process at the University of Lethbridge.

I have always believed that a university president with an iota of self-respect would resist tooth and nail such a blatant assault on academic freedom and professional ethics as is occurring right now at his institution. Unfortunately, Canadian law cannot compel Dr. Mahon to disclose the real reasons behind his actions.  It is no small irony that Dr. Mahon cannot be brought to justice with the charge of misfeasance in public office, similar to the one brought against York University’s Lorna Marsden by Freeman-Maloy, because there is another due process, called Arbitration that was specially designed to protect tenured professors and was supposedly speedier than the lengthy court battle.

To make matters worse, notice the deafening silence of CAUT (Canadian Association of University Teachers) about the case of Dr. Anthony Hall. No wonder some university presidents went on record dismissing CAUT as “a bunch of losers.” Sadly, a group that could have raised a loud and legitimate collective voice in support of due process has lived up to its “loser” label and stayed in the shadows.

And one can only expect similar cowardice from the University of Lethbridge’s own Faculty Association. There will be initial cries of indignation, but soon enough they will decrease to furtive whispers. You see, they will have been “consulted,” making it then acceptable to watch one of their peers left by the roadside with no fair or impartial evaluation.

The experienced, well-orchestrated and politically influential Zionist group is making sure all the legal and ethical loopholes are closed and that the guillotine is firmly in place to chop off Dr. Hall’s career with no chance of appeal.

And that’s what is so manifestly wrong with this picture. As Einstein famously pointed out, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” Others have aptly added that the result of doing so is insanity.

Canadian University suspends professor over ‘denying Holocaust’ PressTV News Videos

ATEDITOR0216

Editor’s Note: This short 9 minute news item on Press TV gives a very succinct and powerful portrayal of the machinations of the foreign lobby organization B’nai Brith ‘Canada’ and its outrageous actions designed to destroy freedom of speech in Canada and specifically within the area of academia where they’ve been instrumental in having the University of Lethbridge, Alberta suspend Professor Anthony Hall without pay based solely on the machinations of their own Israeli Zionist operatives and aided and abetted by the Zionist “mainsteam” media including the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

Canadian professor libelously targeted as “anti-semite” in coordinated attack by RAFIQ for the American Herald Tribune

amhertribune

halllibelhdr

In his Now Magazine article “Facebook Removes Anti-Semitic Post after Online Blowback,” Bernie Farber explains that “the Facebook ravings on the social media site of Anthony Hall,” a tenured professor at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, have been identified as anti-Semitic. This statement might lead readers to believe that there were anti-Semitic ravings by Dr. Hall on his Facebook page, but as the article makes clear, there are no examples of such ravings by Dr. Hall, only by “one Glen Davidson,” who we are told posted these ravings on Dr. Hall’s page.

Farber goes on to state that Dr. Hall “has publicly embraced the ridiculous and obnoxious notions of Gerard Menuhin, who has purported to have proof that the Holocaust is a myth.”

Farber does not attempt to dismiss any of this proof, as one might expect an objective journalist to do, but instead takes the position that such proof can be dismissed out of hand as false without any investigation.

By comparison, Dr. Hall sounds like the more reasonable person for having actually looked at Menuhin’s book Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil. Note, too, that when Hall says “I’m reading that text and having to reassess a lot of ideas,” he does not say that he has changed his ideas, only that he is reassessing his ideas. Again, Hall sounds like the more courageous thinker for his willingness to reassess his thinking on a narrative as seemingly sacrosanct as the Jewish holocaust.

Having not yet said anything that convinces me Dr. Hall is an anti-Semite, Farber adds, “Hall reportedly linked Israel’s intelligence service, Mossad, with 9/11.” The role of Mossad, along with the CIA, in the 9/11 attacks is a fact well documented by credible journalists and scholars and widely disseminated online and in books. It is public knowledge and in the public domain. To admit the role of Mossad and the CIA in 9/11 is to admit the villainy of national governments and their foreign policies. Jewish identity and anti-Semitism have nothing to do with it.

Regarding  the anti-Semitic Facebook post that did not even originate with Dr. Hall, Farber writes, “To the best of my knowledge, Hall was never moved to delete this post himself.” An unbiased journalist would have contacted Dr. Hall and asked him about this matter. Well, I did contact Dr. Hall, and he informed me that he didn’t even know that the post was up on the “wall” of his Facebook page until after it had been taken down and after he had learned of the resulting controversy. So, here again, Farber offers no proof that Dr. Hall is even remotely anti-Semitic.

Not only that, but Dr. Hall’s award-winning two-volume book The Bowl with One Spoon, published by respected arbiter of scholarly history McGill-Queen’s University Press, gives every indication that Dr. Hall is the opposite of a racist, particularly in light of his deep commitment to exposing the plight of Indigenous peoples. Indeed, renowned Canadian scholar Naomi Klein, who happens to be Jewish, doesn’t seem to think that Dr. Hall is a racist either. On the cover of Dr. Hall’s book, she writes, “I cannot overstate the importance of this book. If used properly, it could change the world.”

Nonetheless, Farber goes on to bemoan that “the combined efforts of B’nai B’rith Canada and the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs were unable to move the University of Lethbridge to take action against Hall.” I would like to believe that this unwillingness on the part of the University of Lethbridge to help B’nai B’rith destroy Dr. Hall’s career is due to the university’s professed commitment to liberal education and liberal values, even if Farber does portray Lethbridge as a racist backwater in conservative Alberta, where Hall is said to have “found a comfortable home amongst Holocaust deniers.”

I would like to believe that the unwillingness of the University of Lethbridge to help B’nai B’rith destroy Dr. Hall’s career is due to the fact that, as a nation, Canada has shown itself willing to reconsider history when there is good cause. Notably, Canadians have recently begun the hard process of re-evaluating our own history with respect to our nation’s cultural and physical genocide against our Indigenous peoples. Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian Residential Schools has just published a six-volume final report on its findings, and in the tradition of scholars like Dr. Hall, this report shows fearlessness in confronting past lies so that history can better reflect the truth, however uncomfortable that truth may be.

I would like to believe that the unwillingness of the University of Lethbridge to help B’nai B’rith destroy Dr. Hall’s career is due to the university’s high ideals and Canadian bearing, but when I contacted Dr. Hall, he informed me that the University of Lethbridge has indeed asked him to step down from his tenured position after twenty-six years as a professor. It seems that the university is ready to bow to outside pressure and to sacrifice Dr. Hall. I’m sure that Farber’s biased account of the anti-Semitic posting on Dr. Hall’s Facebook page did little to help Dr. Hall’s chances of staving off B’nai B’rith’s attack.

Farber’s misrepresentation of Dr. Hall is no less offensive than the crime of which Dr. Hall is accused, namely misrepresentation of the Jewish holocaust. The difference between the two is that, in the case of Farber, his accusation that Dr. Hall is an anti-Semite is clearly baseless, whereas Dr. Hall’s willingness “to reassess a lot of ideas” about the history of the Second World War seems to be well thought out given his reputation as a respected historian.

Conrad Black’s Zionist Newspaper chain (Lethbridge Herald) Accuses Professor Anthony Hall of “Hate Speech”

 

Conspiracy theories

The University of Lethbridge is defending a professor’s right to use his position to promote conspiracy theories online, including the idea that the 2014 Parliament Hill shooting in Ottawa was a scheme to keep Stephen Harper in power; the Sandy Hook massacre was staged to promote gun control; and Jewish Zionists are waging a secret war to demonize Muslims around the world through control of western media.  Anthony Hall is a tenured member within the U of L’s Faculty of Arts and Science. He has a history of activism that includes being arrested during protests at the Summit of the Americas in Quebec City in 2001, protesting wars in the Middle East, and battling for the rights of First Nations people.


Since late December, Hall has been a co-host on a weekly YouTube program called “False Flag Weekly News” with fellow conspiracy theorists Kevin Barrett, an Arabist-Islamologist, and James Fetzer, a professor of Philosophy Emeritus.

FFWN promotes the idea of a global Zionist conspiracy to create hatred against Muslims by promoting an alternative narrative of Muslim extremism through global “false flag” terror events. These events include just about every large-scale terror attack and mass shooting since the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, which is seen as a sort of “Ground Zero” for this secret war.

Both Barrett and Fetzer are noted Holocaust deniers, and Hall has questioned established facts which happened during the Second World War.

In a prepared statement, Craig Cooper, Dean of Arts and Science, stated the U of L does not dictate research areas to faculty members and supports Hall’s right to “pursue the research topics of his choosing.”

“The university doesn’t always agree with the opinions expressed by faculty members but recognizes their rights to express them,” the statement read.
Hall could not be reached for comment, despite multiple attempts by The Herald, but there are more than six months of weekly broadcasts on YouTube where he spoke freely on a number of topics.

There was a discussion about a Twitter A.I. chatbot named “Tay” developed by Microsoft, which started randomly posting anti-Semitic tweets such as “Hitler was right I hate the Jews” after it was bombarded by internet trolls was supported on FFWN.

Hall referenced the book “Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil” by Gerard Menuhin, which claims to show proof the Holocaust is a myth. He stated the book causes a “very dramatic re-looking at what happened in Europe in World War 2.”

“So I’m reading that text and having to reassess a lot of ideas,” Hall said. “So maybe Tay is actually on to something here.”

During a discussion on the March 2016 Lahore, Pakistan, terror attack that left 75 dead and hundreds injured, Barrett discussed how more Muslims than Christians were killed, but CNN was reporting it as a Muslim attack on Christians.

He went on to say CNN is run by Jewish Zionists like all other major media. Hall then accused CNN political anchor Wolf Blitzer of being a leader in this conspiracy.

“Let’s face it. The media is dominated by ethnically Jewish Zionists, and some of them may not be completely on board with the neo-con agenda, but it sure looks like a lot of them are,” said Barrett.

“And Wolf Blitzer, of course, is one of the chief Zionists in the whole U.S. media,” said Hall. “He is one of the point people.”

During a discussion of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, where 20 young children and six adults were killed by shooter Adam Lanza, Fetzer said the school had been shut down since 2008 and that the shooting never actually happened. He accused the families of faking the story and collecting between $27 million and $130 million collectively.

Hall stated his impression was that Sandy Hook was not the usual type of false flag event designed to instil hatred of Muslims.

“My understanding is that it was about gun control,” he said on the show.

In a discussion about noted white nationalist and former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, Hall referred to the need for Duke to have an audience to be able to air his views.

“Thinking people, as David Duke is, intelligent people, some of their theories are good, and some of them not-so-good. (Duke) deserves an audience. He has some very astute analysis of things going on. And some of his ideas are objectionable.”

Barrett and Hall’s discussion on the 2014 Parliament Hill shooting described a False Flag event designed to push an anti-Islam agenda to win the election for Stephen Harper. They said that attempt failed and Trudeau took power.

A discussion about swaying public opinion through mass media involved the Ottawa shooting and how convenient that there were photos of shooter Michael Zehaf-Bibeau at the Canadian National War Memorial during the event.

“Supposedly, the image shows him with a gun at the place where he was supposed to have killed Nathan Cirillo. Where did the picture come from?” Hall asked.
He went on to describe the images and footage released during the first hours of the events as “low level productions,” with dummies being blown up and “ketchup being sprayed here and there.”

“They really didn’t have a good budget for their stage management of the whole thing,” Hall said.

The Herald reached out to the Lethbridge Jewish community, for a response, and was provided with the following statement:

“Mr. Hall’s statements and theories are so outlandish, venomous, and without substance, that we cannot even begin to dignify them with a response.”

In defending Hall, Cooper noted the role of universities in “ensuring our societies are free and improve through the critical analysis undertaken through research and the tenet of academic freedom. Academic freedom is necessary so that all topics can be fully explored in the absence of external influence, popular opinion or conventional wisdom.”
