University of Lethbridge Removes Fall Classes With Professor Accused of Holocaust Denial

August 5, 2018

A Canadian professor under investigation for Holocaust denial will not teach courses next fall, according to a human rights group who objected to his return to the classroom.

Anthony Hall, a tenured professor of Globalization Studies at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, was listed as recently as late July on the school’s online course catalog as teaching two classes in the fall 2018 semester — “Capital, Culture and Globalization” and “Globalization and Education,” B’nai Brith Canada said.

Yet school officials have previously indicated that Hall — who has blamed Israel for the 9/11 terrorist attacks and called for “open debate” on the Holocaust in a video for a Holocaust-denying group — would not be allowed to lead classes pending the completion of an internal investigation.

After B’nai Brith complained to the university, “the courses were quickly scrubbed from the website and the Registrar confirmed that Hall would not be teaching” the aforementioned courses, the group said. “No explanation was provided, however, as to why the courses had been listed in the first place.”

Given the image that Human Rights groups have concerning freedom of speech that statement sounds kind of Orwellian.
That systematic repression of Holocaust Dissent by Jewish group is quite telling. What do they have to hide?

Instead of welcoming critique and dissenting view points those lobbyist do everything possible to avoid scrutiny of their narrative and the possibility that a larger audience may look into the veracity of their version of the Holocaust. Well, I guess they'll be OK with different versions as long as it makes in essence for a unique horror story that binds people emotionally. In short, as long as the propaganda value of the brand persists, they are remotely fine with that. When someone points out the lack of evidence and flaws in the narrative they however seem to get pretty nervous.
