Protest Today Suspension Without Pay of Freethinking Tenured Prof
Professor Tony Hall is being pushed out of the University of Lethridge, Alberta by B’nai Brith. He is a professor of Globalization studies and they don’t like his views on history. On Monday, this freethinking tenured professor was informed that he was to attend a meeting Tuesday where he would be suspended WITHOUT pay. As a tenured professor this treatment is outrageous if not illegal.
As has happened in some many cases — Brian Ruhe among others — the thought police of B’nai Brith seek to suppress critics of Israel by having them fired, by impoverishing them.
The university’s complaints against Professor Tony Hall are:
1. “Virulent anti-semitic posts on Facebook.” These occurred during a time Professor Hall was travelling. Facebook removed them. Someone planted them or hacked his account. He completely repudiated them.
2. Professor Hall has blamed Israel for 9-11.
3. At a recent meeting between the provost and the dean at the University of Lethbridge, Professor Hall inquired whether either was Jewish. This was an entirely proper inquiry as to possible bias, as Professor Hall’s main tormenters are the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith.
According to the CBC (September 30, 2016), “A Jewish group is calling on the University of Lethbridge to fire a professor who it alleges is ‘well-known for using his academic credentials to deny the Holocaust and promote 9/11 conspiracy theories.’
Anthony Hall co-hosts a weekly YouTube show called False Flag Weekly News, which allegedly promotes the notion of a Zionist conspiracy to foster hatred of Muslims through ‘false flag’ terror events, beginning with 9/11. B’nai Brith alleges that Hall “is a proponent of what he refers to as an ‘open debate on the Holocaust,’ a supporter of Holocaust [skeptics] like Monika Schaefer, and has even accused Israel of ‘playing a key role’ in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.”
Clearly, it didn’t take the university long to hop to the order of B’nai Brith and betray their mission to protect scholarship and freedom of speech. Within days they are seeking to oust this tenured professor.
Freedom supporters, e-mail the university president today and insist that this taxpayer supported institution honour tenure and support freedom of speech and “diversity of opinion” and immediately rescind the suspension of Professor Hall.
