The Witchhunt Continues: Monika Schaefer Removed as Director of Regional Fiddling Association & Uninvited As Instructor at Music Camp
Is there are state religion in Canada? You’d better believe it and it is NOT Christianity. You can doubt the divinity of Christ, loudly proclaim that you believe in no god or are a witch. But, you’d better not deviate from the new religion of holocaust or you’ll face its legions of witchhunters or sweaty peasants slack jawed but fanatical seeking to burn you at the stake.
Last June, Jasper resident Monika Schaefer put a short video on You Tube, “Sorry, Mom, I Was Wrong About the holocaust.” It went viral with over 120,000 views. Repression came fast. Some longtime friends cut her off. Many of her local violin students stopped taking lessons for her. She was banned from the local Legion, a major centre for music in her town. She was refused a busking licence because of her views on WW II. She was uninvited from the Dominion (Canada) ceremonies, where she had been a very popular act last July.
Her views on World War II, in the opinion of the censorship fanatics, disqualifies her from earning a living or contributing to the community. The sorry list of insults, rejections and humiliations heaped upon her by the narrow-minded acolytes of this other tribes self-serving history — the so-called holocaust — continues. A loyal member of the Alberta Society of Fiddlers, Miss Schaefer has just been in formed that, at a secret meeting, she was removed “as Director for the Yellowhead West Region of the ASF” and an invitation to be an instructor at our upcoming music camp at Camp HeHoHa in February of 2017″ has been rescinded
Here is the Alberta Society of Fiddlers’ sorry letter and Monika’s reasonable and dignified response.
CANADIAN ASSOCIATION FOR FREE EXPRESSION
August 30, 2016
As President of the Alberta Society of Fiddlers, and on behalf of the Board of Directors and Executive, I am writing to advise you of decisions made at a special ASF meeting called on August 17th, 2016.
As a result of your recent public comments regarding your views on the Holocaust, we are relieving you of your duties as Director for the Yellowhead West Region of the ASF, and also rescinding your invitation to be an instructor at our upcoming music camp at Camp HeHoHa in February of 2017.
Thank you for your past contributions to our society.
Sincerely, We wish you all the best in your future endeavours,
Randy Jones, President
Alberta Society of Fiddlers
Open letter to the Alberta Society of Fiddlers:
September 23, 2016
Thank you for the registered letter in which you informed me of the outcome of your meeting. I am being relieved of my duties as ASF Director of the Yellowhead West Region, and you are rescinding the invitation for me to be an instructor at Camp HeHoHa in February 2017. Here are my questions and comments.
At the time of the meeting, I was on the board of directors of the Alberta Society of Fiddlers. Therefore, I would expect that I should be informed of a meeting, especially if I was the subject of the meeting. Was there any attempt to contact me? It seems there was not, and if not, why not? Was there a prior meeting to discuss whether I should be invited? Is there a record of the discussion leading up to the special meeting? Who made the decision to have a special meeting? Is there a record of the special meeting? Was there a vote? Were minutes taken? I would like to see those minutes please. I would like to know if my membership will be next to be terminated. What indication do I have that I would be welcome to attend an ASF event in future?
My classes at Camp HeHoHa the last two years were well received, and the feedback, by all accounts, was very good. You are telling me now that because of my interpretation of the events of WW2, I am no longer welcome to teach at fiddle camp. Surely this is setting a precedent that a person’s opinions about history trumps their ability to play or teach the fiddle.
Last February I had the same views on the history of WW2 as I have now. I have been studying these matters for a few years now. Did anyone complain? Of course not! I did not talk much about history or politics during the camp, and definitely not in class. Whenever I have attended fiddle camp as a student or as an instructor, it was to immerse myself in the joy of playing music together with others in this wonderful musical family which has now been broken. And even if I had discussed history or politics in private conversations, what would be the problem?
We find ourselves in a world where certain conversations can only be whispered behind closed doors, and other conversations are permitted in public. Who would have imagined this could happen in our own province of Alberta in Canada? Who would have thought George Orwell’s world of thought control would prove to be so prophetic? It is shameful that the Alberta Society of Fiddlers is participating in this thought control.
I wonder what this saga teaches young people. If I was to return to the camp as a student like in years past, have you not set me up to be treated as a leper? Surely when asked why I am no longer teaching, I would tell the truth. It was not my teaching that received a failing grade, but my opinions and conclusions about an event which took place 70 years ago. I think the ASF action teaches young people to be conformist, and if they were to disagree with a prevailing view, they sure had better keep it to themselves and lie publicly about their beliefs.
This is becoming an international story. Here is a quote from a recent article by Editor-in-Chief of The American Herald Tribune,
Professor Anthony Hall:
“The new configurations of authority are extending to important agencies like the Royal Canadian Legion, Jasper National Park [Parks Canada], and the Alberta Society of Fiddlers. Those overseeing these important institutions are made to feel empowered to impose arbitrary sanctions and punishments against an individual who dared to question enshrined orthodoxy.
The message is made clear that the vibrancy of art and culture, the wellbeing of veterans as well as the need to protect some of Alberta’s most majestic Alpine environments have become secondary commitments. The treatment in Jasper National Park of violinist Monika Schaefer signals the end of our free and democratic society. Our right and need to express independent thought, the starting point of collective self-determination, has been sacrificed in order to enforce supine obedience to the sanctification of an historical interpretation that must not be subjected to skeptical scrutiny and reconsideration.”
I am in good company with regards to my understanding of the history of WW2. Gerard Menuhin, son of famous (Jewish) violinist Yehudi Menuhin, has written a book called “Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil”. Here is a book review and synopsis.
From the volume of messages of support that I have been receiving, it is becoming quite clear to me that there are people in every village, town and hamlet who agree with my conclusions on the “holocaust”. These messages have come to me from all over Canada and the world, and from many places in Alberta. But the vast majority of those people do not speak publicly about it, because there is a high price to pay. They are afraid of losing their jobs, their friends, and their community standing. An example is made of anyone who dares speak out, to frighten others who might be tempted to question the prevailing dogma. I invite you to read about “ritual defamation”, something that I am becoming an expert on. Evidence and facts have no bearing in this process.
Of the people who have viewed my “Sorry Mom, I was wrong about the holocaust”, those who have voted their approval or disapproval online have consistently done so in a ratio of approximately 3:1 likes over dislikes. Although not the final word, this ratio suggests that many see this video as a positive contribution, well within community standards.
Given that there are people all over Alberta who share my views, are you not now obliged to screen all potential instructors for their political views and their historical understanding? You have set the precedent by your actions against me. In the past, the sniff test might have been whether you believed the earth was flat. People used to be persecuted for saying the earth revolved around the sun.
Free thinkers are often found within the artistic community. I remember long ago hearing about political prisoners in countries far away, such as poets in the Soviet Union who were jailed because of their writings. A tyrannical state is threatened by free thinkers, so the tyrannical state often persecutes its artists. But it is strange when the artist community persecutes their own. That is the context in which I find the actions of the Alberta Society of Fiddlers to be so shocking.
The old adage “the victors write the history books” is not just about choosing the font. We have all been subjected to a life-time of indoctrination. If you have not done independent study of “The Holocaust” outside of the parameters of our schooling and Hollywood, then it is completely understandable that you disagree with my views. However, it is another matter altogether when you demonstrate such a Pavlovian response to my short video in which I apologize to my mother for having held her to account for the horrors of WW2 after having learned that the prevailing dogma is not correct.
I will give just one example to show that you cannot be 100% right and me 100% wrong. I remember learning in school either late 1960s or early ‘70s that the Germans were so evil and depraved that they made soap, lampshades and shrunken heads out of the bodies of Jews. Now they do not teach that propaganda anymore, because that has been proven to be lies. That puts a crack in the untouchable edifice of this narrative.
Aware people are everywhere. I know that. I am hearing from them. Does this mean you will all start looking over your shoulder wondering who else shares my views? Or might it give you cause to reconsider your certainty over this issue? And even if you are absolutely certain that I am 100% wrong, consider the fact that there is no other event in history for which debate is not permitted, quite literally against the law in many countries. There is something wrong with that picture. Only lies need to be protected by laws. The truth stands on its own.
This event called “Holocaust” has replaced our religions. Apparently I am a heretic, and the Alberta Society of Fiddlers is metaphorically burning me at the stake. I think in light of future history, this decision you have made will prove to be one of the more consequential in ASF history.
Will you have the courage to print this letter in your next newsletter? If not, why not? You might say it has no relevance to the fiddling world and the usual contents of that newsletter. Precisely! My views on the “holocaust” also have nothing to do with my participation in the fiddling world of the ASF. But by your actions, you have made the subject of WW2 part of the fiddling world in Alberta.

Brian Ruhe Fired By Delta School District for His Revisionist Views — Interview With Paul Fromm
Hello Fellow Truth Seeker:
The Delta School Board has fired me from my job teaching Mindfulness Meditation on Sat. Oct. 1st. I have been teaching there since 2001 and this is unfair and I encourage you to protest this and request that they reverse their decision. Their reasons are unjustified as they signed a contract with me this summer. This is because of my YouTube videos which have nothing to do with what I teach in my meditation classes. As a Buddhist, concerned with peace and justice in the world, my extensive studies have led me to use YouTube to challenge the unbalanced power of Jewish supremacy in our society. They have used their powerful influence with their B’nai Brith organization to get me fired from six teaching positions a year ago and they even admit this publicly on two websites. They have now effectively brought my 20 year Buddhist meditation teaching career to an end which is a loss for spreading Buddhism around Vancouver.
If you would like to lend your voice, the Secretary/ Treasurer of the Delta School District has offered to be the contact person for them. His contact info is:
The Director of the Canadian Association for Freedom of Expression, Paul Fromm has made a video with me about my case which is liked below.
Teacher Fired. Delta School District has NO RESPECT for Free Speech in Canada
I have also documented the past two years of this persecution with 60 pages on my website under the, In the News, heading at:http://www.brianruhe.ca/in-the-news/ This can be used for others to make a story.
Because of this hostile, unfair destruction of my career I have made a career shift to speak out against this with a YouTube talk show called, The Brian Ruhe Show. I get about 1300 people a day watching my videos and I receive donations for this. If you would like to help at this time, please send a donation to my PayPal account using my email address or the ‘Donate’ button on my website.
Thank you. Much metta,

VINCENT REYNOUARD WEBSITE
Vincent Reynouard is a French revisionist who disputes the official version of the massacre at Oradour-sur-Glane. On 9 June 2004, his previous conviction on a charge of “approval of a war crime” was upheld on appeal and Reynouard was sentenced to two years in prison with 18 months of that time on probation, plus a 3,000 Euro fine. The court also upheld the confiscation of his research papers which had been seized in May 2001. Essentially, Reynouard’s crime was that he claimed that survivors of the Oradour massacre lied about the tragedy, and that the women and children were killed by an explosion in the church which was not set off by the Waffen-SS soldiers who were in the village that day. Contrary to Reynouard’s revisionist claims, the women and children were burned alive by a fire that was set in the church by the Waffen-SS soldiers, according to the official story. Reynouard wrote an article which was published in German on this web site, which has since been taken down: http://www.deutsche-
Vincent Reynouard is an independent French historian specializing in the Second World War who has been punished repeatedly for violating France’s controversial “Gayssot” law, which criminalizes dissident views on certain aspects of twentieth century history. For more by and about him, see the French-language website: http://www.phdnm.org/
Born in 1969, Reynouard studied in Caen, Normandy, and graduated as a chemical engineer. He then taught mathematics at professional secondary schools. In 1997 he was dismissed as a teacher by the French Education Minister after the discovery of revisionist texts on the hard disk of the computer he used at school. Since then Reynouard has survived on his writings, videos and other work as an independent historian.
BRUSHES WITH THE LAW
On October 8, 1992, a court in Caen, France, sentenced him to one month in prison (suspended), and fined him 5000 francs (about $850) for violating the country’s “Gayssot” law that makes it a crime to “contest” or dispute certain “crimes against humanity,” as defined by the Charter of the Nuremberg Tribunal (IMT) of 1945-46. Specifically, he was punished for having sent to 24 secondary school pupils anonymous letters along with copies of writings that dispute claims of gas chamber killings during World War II. In June 2004 Reynouard was sentenced to two years in prison for having produced and distributed a video on the tragedy of Oradour-sur-Glane that allegedly approved war crimes. However that ruling was later overturned by another court. An earlier confiscation of his research papers was validated.
On November 8, 2007, a court in Saverne (Lower Rhine), France, sentenced Reynouard to one year in prison, and to pay a fine of 10,000 euros (about $13,000) for “contesting crimes against humanity” by writing and distributing a 16-page brochure entitled “The Holocaust: What They Hide from You.” He was also ordered to pay 3,000 euros to the anti-racist association LICRA. His incarceration attracted public attention, and hundreds signed a petition to press for his release and the repeal of the French “denial” law.
On June 25, 2008, the Court of Appeals in Colmar (Alsace) upheld the one-year prison sentence and ordered Reynouard to pay a total of 60,000 euros, which included a fine of 20,000 euros, damages, and the cost of publishing a notice with extracts from this judgment in the “Official Journal of the French Republic,” as well as in two French daily newspapers. Meanwhile, Reynouard fled with his family to neighboring Belgium.
In June 2008, a court in Brussels, Belgium, declared Reynouard and Belgian VHO publisher Siegfried Verbeke guilty of “disputing crimes against humanity” for having written and published “Holocaust denial” literature. The two men were sentenced to one year imprisonment and to pay a fine of 25,000 euros, as well as damages and various other costs. In 2011 an appeals court upheld the sentence.
In February 2015, a criminal court in Normandy sentenced Reynouard to two years in prison for “Holocaust denial” (or négationnisme) in videos he had posted on social media. In addition, the French court ordered him to pay 4,500 euros in damages. Reynouard had represented himself in the three-hour trial in the city of Coutances, although he was not present for the verdict. This sentence came in the aftermath of emphatic expressions of support for freedom of speech — by politicians, in the media and in large rallies — following the killing by Muslim extremists of staff members of the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, which had enraged Muslims for its demeaning cartoons of Muhammed. The sentence of Reynouard showed, once again, that in France there are very real limits on freedom of speech – restrictions that reflect the outlook and interests of those who have power and influence.
Reynouard has written (Used on the Interview video with Jim Rizoli)
“Historical revisionism belongs to no one. Its findings are the fruit of traditional methods of inquiry where scientific expertise assists in the appraisal of testimonies and in documentary research. They will be obvious to any honest individual, whether on the political left or right, [religious] believer or atheist …
“… Its implications extend well beyond the historical scope. The stakes involved, gigantic ones, are political and even theological. If some refuse to see this – because of blindness, cowardice or mistaken strategy – our adversaries, for their part, have understood quite well. They know that a sudden bursting through of the historical truth about the period 1914-1946 would call into question the world order founded at Nuremberg in 1945-1946 …
“The way ahead, therefore, is all laid out for us: we must continue to repeat the truth, the whole truth, including the truth about what’s at stake in this struggle. Far from being merely a sterile quarrel between devotees of the past cut off from present-day realities, the fight for historical truth is, on the contrary, the continuation, on the intellectual level, of the war whose armed phase ended in 1945 with the defeat of the Axis forces. And it’s clear that this conflict, having begun not on September 3, 1939, but on January 30, 1933, is the modern form of the eternal struggle between Light and Darkness. In the twentieth century, National Socialist Germany embodied – doubtless imperfectly but successfully all the same – the very last attempt to return to a well-ordered society, that is, a society respecting the natural order.
“This is the reason why, even after the Third Reich was completely crushed militarily, the war continued, and has continued up to today. Our opponents in this never-ending fight have a weapon of mass destruction: the alleged ‘Holocaust.’ Since 1945, this lie has prevented any dispassionate debate on National Socialism and, more generally, on societies that respect natural order. ‘We know where that led! …’ is how people constantly respond to those who, against the ‘Rights of Man’ and their natural offspring: the unleashing of all selfish inclinations, dare speak of order, the Common Good, wholesomeness, moral standards, safeguarding the genetic heritage, the birth rate, rights of kinship …
“The German homicidal gas chambers never existed. Yes, ‘the Holocaust’ is a myth. For my part, I add: Yes, Hitler embodied the hope of Europe in the face of the ruinous ideals of 1789; Yes, we must take up the best of what National Socialism comprised in order finally to surpass it and forge a doctrine that will be able to save our Old Continent.”
JIM RIZOLI: Cofounder, producer/interviewer (Fred Leuchter and Assistant, Diane King) of the Series, LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY REVISIONISTS. This also entails seeking out UNSUNG HEROES and German survivors of Allied atrocities – The German Story, The German Way. Hard core historical revisionist, Jim and, his brother, Joe moved from combating the illegal immigrant hordes in their cable shows to dealing with the fundamental and pervading issue of the holocaust. Their immigrant battles led them to the plight of Ernst Zundel in Canada, being prosecuted for having reprinted *Did 6 Million Really Die*! Thus Jim and Joe’s efforts and cable shows also turned toward the issue of the holocaust. That’s when their troubles accelerated. In 2002 – 2003 they began producing numerous (1000s of videos) dealing with many issues and 100s of videos about the holocaust. Consequently, YouTube videos (700) under the name of Jim Rizoli were banned. His name was banned on Facebook. In 2010, their cable shows were suspended. They returned and then were permanently removed in 2014. We are back to provide a venue of/freedom of, telling the story for tried-and-true revisionists and Germans throughout North America, Europe and Australia.

Paul Fromm is the Director of the Canadian Association for the Freedom of Expression athttp://cafe.nfshost.com . Here Paul interviews Brian Ruhe after he was fired from teaching Mindfulness Meditation in Continuing Ed. at the Delta School Board in Ladner, BC where he has taught since 2001.
This is a FAIR USE of the Delta School District logo “Inspired Learning”. The Delta School District didn’t like Brian’s YouTube vidoes which he made on his own time and his own dime, out of class. It is disturbing that the Delta School District admits that there was no problems within Brian’s courses, no complaints from students, and they admit that he never discussed his views on history and politics in his classes. Therefore, the Delta School Board is attacking free speech in Canada, while upholding all kinds of great values.
If you would like to express your view on this to the Delta School Board, please contact Joe Strain as he indicates that he will not answer me. He wrote to me on Sept. 7th stating:
Good morning Mr. Ruhe.
Your various emails to Board of Education members regarding the cancellation of your meditation sessions have been referred to me for response. The Board of Education is aware of the circumstances involved and supports the decision made. The Board of Education treats personnel related matters confidentially. Given your decision to publicize previous communications in this regard on the internet, further correspondence from you to the District will only be responded to as required by law.
Brian Ruhe is a Buddhist truth activist and occasional troublemaker. He was fired in Sept. 2016 from teaching at the Delta School Board because of these videos. Please donate to support these videos at the website http://www.brianruhe.

I was a Buddhist monk in Chiangmai, Thailand in 1995 – 1996 and I have been teaching Theravada Buddhism and meditation for 20 years. My first book from 1999, is “Freeing the Buddha,” also at Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/
I follow the Theravada Buddhist Forest tradition.
Most videos I produce oppose the New World Order, whose goal is to genocide white peoples and replace them with a black-brown mongrel mass, and to rule over the (ex-?) white lands from a central base state. To survive, whites must know their true identity, their inner soul, and the life that they will lose. They have to read the politically incorrect thriller of the era, “Sweet Dreams and Terror Cells.” Find it here:
While researching a book about the French resistance, Author James Bacque stumbled upon the evidence of the deaths of German prisoners in American and French death camps after WWII, this research later became his book “Other Losses” which details the accounts of German prisoners of war which otherwise would have been largely unknown. Over 1 million prisoners in Germany were casually exterminated in allied camps
Other losses sold over 200,000 copies worldwide along with his extraordinary work in writing other books such as Our Fathers War and Crimes and Mercies that have become best-sellers published around the world with over 260,000 copies sold.
Mr Bacques work has become threatened because the literary and historical establishment assisted by the government and police of Canada and the USA have made it impossible to reach readers through former publishers.
