The Left Forum, the country’s largest leftist conference, has banned four of five panels on the Deep State track from this year’s line-up due to baseless antisemitic charges. The Left Forum, wearing thought police hats, have arbitrarily determined some ideas are too dangerous for their constituency to hear.
Pleasepublicize this pernicious threat to free speech and academic debate, and support an alternative speaking venue the organizers and speakers have proactively put together called the “Left Out Forum.”
The Left Forum will be held on June 2-4, 2017, at John Jay Criminal College in New York City. Approximately 3,000 people attend the annual conference to hear up to 250 panels and plenaries. The alternative “Left Out Forum” panels will be on Sunday, June 4.
The four banned Deep State panels are:
Political Correctness: The Dangers of Thought Crime Police
“Terrorism”: Fake Enemies, Fraudulent Wars
False Flags: Staged, Scripted, Mass Psy-Op Events
9/11 Truth: Ground Zero for a Resistance Movement
In April, the Left Forum had received two letters with contorted, out-of-context allegations claiming some panelists were antisemitic and should not be allowed to speak. The Left Forum Board subsequently rejected three of the five panels submitted by the grassroots organizers less than a month before the conference start.
The Left Forum shared both letters with the panel organizers, whose only recourse was to email vigorous responses rebutting the false and libelous accusations. Panel speakers and many supporters wrote letters of protest as well, all of which went unanswered. The Board refused to reverse their decision to allow the three panels. The entire process had the hallmarks of a secretive grand jury.
Then on May 28, mere days before the conference start, the Left Forum capitulated to yet more specious allegations and cancelled a fourth panel. Supposedly a “big German organization” erroneously claimed one of the speakers was a “Holocaust denier.” Without any input from the Deep State panel organizers or speakers, ironically the Left Forum decreed verboten the panel on Political Correctness: The Dangers of Thought Crimes.
The Left Forum’s capitulation to shadowy pressure must be contextualized as part of a brazen repression of academics and activists whose alternative perspectives challenge official versions of controversial events. Many academics—including several Deep State panel speakers—have been fired or suspended, almost all without reprieve. It has been well documented that much of this thought policing (though not all) is a sophisticated, organized meta strategy to oppose any criticism of Israel.
The following are just a few examples of silencing dissent by labeling it “antisemitic” based on an extreme, warped interpretation of hate speech.
The criminal machinations of terrorist-troll Josh Goldberg, who hides behind multiple online personalities in order to frame non-Jews on trumped-up antisemitic charges
The witch hunt of Alison Weir, founder of If Americans Knew and a leading advocate for the human rights of Palestinians
The Canary Missionwebsite which publicizes and monitors alleged “antisemitic” academics
Amazon’s banishment (i.e., cyber book burning) of scores of books with alternative views on WWII
Given the conference theme is “Resistance,” it is alarming that the Left Forum is using neo-McCarthyist tactics to thwart resistance by grassroots activists of official narratives that in the United States of America should be allowed free, open, unobstructed inquiry.
12:00-1:50 – Co-Opting the Left: Infiltration by the Corporate State to Neutralize Resistance
