The Left Forum, the largest leftist conference in the country, has a history of censoring views they do not support. In 2017, four of our five panels were banned. Our group responded by organizing a highly successful alternative conference we dubbed the “Left Out Forum.”
This year, 2018, all of our panels were banned, once again with zero explanation. Refusing to be silent, we created an alternative online conference for the weekend following the Left Forum and called it Deep Truth: Visionaries Speak Out.
Full Background Story
2016 Left Forum
In 2016, a group of East Coast transpartisan progressives organized six panels for the Left Forum that we classified under the theme “Deep State”—a term at that time just on the cusp of the mainstream lexicon. Our panels were:
1. The Fabricated Global War on Terror: Why the Left Should Unite to Expose and Rebel Against It
Jim Fetzer, Michael Springmann, Gearoid O’Colmain
2. 9/11-An Ecumenical Approach
Barbara Honegger, Kevin Barrett
3. Cointelpro Post 9/11
Lynne Jackson, Mauri Saalakhan, Taalib-Din Shakir
4. Assassinations and Their Cover-Ups: Could a Left Consensus Promote Unity?
Andrew Kreig, Russ Baker, William Pepper
5. False Flags – How a United Left Could Defeat a “Global Gladio” Agenda
Kevin Barrett, Richard Dolan, Chris Emery
6. Islamophobia – Fallout for Failure to Challenge the Proxy Role of Muslims in 9/11
Zarinah Shakir, Stephen Downs, Kevin Barrett
A key goal was to insert 9/11 into the Left Forum, an organization which showed little interest in the subject. We were delighted that our panels were approved and well received. Of our six panels, the 9/11 panel had the highest attendance, confirming our intuition that leftist audiences ARE interested in 9/11 truth when presented intelligently and in context.
2017 Left Forum
Bolstered by our 2016 success, in 2017, we submitted five panels:
1. Political Correctness: The Dangers of Thought Crime Police
Dr. Anthony Hall, Jeremy Rothe-Kushel
2. Terrorism: Fake Enemies, Fraudulent Wars
Michael Springmann, Dr. Anthony Hall, Dr. Kevin Barrett
3. False Flags: Staged, Scripted, Mass Psy-Op Events
Dr. Kevin Barrett, Dave Lindorff, Ole Dammegard
4. 9/11 Truth: Ground Zero for a Resistance Movement
Dr. Kevin Barrett, Barbara Honegger, Richard Gage
5.Co-Opting The Left: Infiltration by the Corporate State to Neutralize Resistance
Kevin Zeese, Glen Ford
Early in the submission process, the Left Forum co-directors shared with us a letter sent to them by a Zionist researcher who specializes in documenting hate groups. He claimed that several of our speakers were antisemitic, and made vague threats that they should not be allowed to speak. We vigorously denounced the false, slanderous allegations, although all for naught. The Board—with zero explanation—rejected three of our five panels one month before the conference was due to start.
Panel speakers and many supporters wrote letters of protest, all of which went unanswered. The Board refused to reverse their decision to allow the three banned panels. The entire process had the hallmarks of a secretive grand jury. Then at the eleventh hour under shameful, ignoble circumstances, a fourth panel (on thought crime police no less) was additionally banned.
Resisting the Left Forum censorship, we organizers presented the four banned panels at an alternative venue. Due to a pattern of harassment by Zionists elements, the location of the banned panels could not be announced until an hour before the event began. The “Left Out Forum” was highly successful and ultimately earned our cause far more publicity than our panels would have ever attained lost among the 250 or so other conference panels.
In spite of its success, our “Left Out Forum” was also quite stressful. Should we move forward with the panels? Where? How? With what budget? Would the Left Forum continue to harass us? Would the Zionists protest us and/or forcibly shut us down as they had actually done on other occasions? It was remarkable that we were able to successfully pull off an alternative forum under such duress.
The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation
We subsequently learned that the Left Forum was not really "the decider." That power went to one of the Left Forum’s primary funders: the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation in Germany, which receives 97% of its funding from the German government. (Like Europe generally, Germany is a vassal state of the Western NATO powers who since WWII still does not have its own constitution.)
“Rosa-Lux” putatively supports progressive social movements worldwide, yet as a global NGO they are able to operate under the radar to help fulfill neoliberal objectives. For example, Rosa-Lux leveraged their “new left” façade to help whitewash the Ukrainian coup engineered by the West in alliance with neo-nazi Maidan fascists.
In terms of the Left Forum’s “sub Rosa” agenda, a primary focus is censoring all potent critiques of Zionism. To wit, in 2018, in addition to our four panels, the Left Forum likewise censored—without any explanation—a panel submitted by If Americans Knew called “Is Talking About Gaza Anti-Semitic Hate Speech, Or a Vital Step Toward Ending Oppression?”
2018 Left Forum
Despite last year's challenges, we were hopeful and confident that the Left Forum would accept our panels this year in light of their 2018 Left Forum theme, “Towards a New Strategy for the Left.” Their theme proclaimed: Unity allows for differences and embraces other voices—it does not squelch them. We do not have to block dissent and critical self-analysis.
In January, 2018, we wrote the Board to say we were delighted with their theme and hoped to work with them this year, but given the difficulties we had the year before, we requested they guarantee us that if they approved our panels, they would not renege and censor them. We were answered with silence.
So we submitted an initial panel and was verbally told it was approved and that, yes, we could go ahead and make travel arrangements. When a second panel we had submitted was held up, we phoned and were told that one of our top speakers was a “holocaust denier” and a “jerk”—a harmful, offensive, and libelous lie which mimics in toto the ADL’s censorship tactics. It was clear we were not going to have any day in court.
True to form, all five of our panels were not approved. We switched gears to produce an online conference free of antifa-riddled interference. And that is how Deep Truth: Visionaries Speak Out came to be.
A Neo-McCarthy Climate
The Left Forum's capitulation to shadowy pressure must be contextualized as part of a general brazen persecution of academics and activists whose alternative perspectives run counter to official versions of controversial events. Many academics—including several of our panel speakers—have been fired or suspended, almost all without reprieve. Much, but not all, of this thought-policing derives from an organized meta strategy to oppose any criticism of Israel.
The following are a few examples from the 2017 time period showing how an extreme, warped interpretation of hate speech serves to silence dissent by labeling it "antisemitic” or “conspiracy theory.” These two popular ad hominem attacks are simply updated versions of the 1950s “Communist” slur to shut down speech that challenges Official Narratives.
- Dr. Kevin Barrett's GoFundMe account was abruptly shut down and his donor database liquidated, all without a single explanation
- Zionists rabidly heckled Richard Falk at a British university, leading other institutions to cancel his lectures on Palestinian issues
- Sophisticated terrorist-troll Joshua Goldberg hid behind multiple online personalities in order to frame non-Jews for antisemitic activities he himself had concocted. In particular, read about Goldberg's outrageous dirty tricks that got Professor Anthony Hall suspended from his tenured position at Lethridge University.
- Alison Weir, founder of If Americans Knew and a highly respected advocate for the human rights of Palestinians, was subjected to an ongoing witch hunt by progressive Jewish organizations.
- Canary Mission and the Southern Poverty Law Center are two of many organizations which monitor and publicize anti-Zionist activists and academics, deliberately libeling them as antisemitic.
- Based on a wave of bomb threats against Jewish centers, Zionists groups pressured Amazon to remove scores of books with alternative views on WWII – essentially a cyber book burning. It was subsequently discovered that the antisemitic threats were made by an Israeli-American teen. Yet, despite this false flag deception, Amazon never restored these history and science books for public purchase, and they are now very hard to find.
Censorship continues to be on the rise. The Left Forum’s heavy-handed silencing tactics mirror the pervasive banning of speech by corporate social media players like Google/YouTube and Facebook. These massive entities need to be turned into public utilities so that the power of censorship is not privatized to monopoly capital in which the public has no oversight.
A wide range of activists on both the left and the right are having their channels blocked, harassed, demonetized, and even blacked out or permanently banned by these faceless digital behemoths. Those who have been targeted include:
- We Are Change
- Forbidden Knowledge
- If Americans Knew
- Sane Progressive
- The Health Ranger
- Blackstone Intelligence Network
- Abby Martin - Empire Files (see her feature on militarism in Israel blocked by YouTube in 28 countries)
- The Richie Allen Show
As with the Left Forum, when banned, there is little hope of engaging with a live human against whom one could have their day in court. Welcome to “Facebook jail” where AI bots are often the jailers. AI bots actually might be fairer than the brave new censors enlisted to provide a fig leaf of objectivity. To wit, ADL and the Southern Poverty Law Center, both with business models predicated on rooting out so-called hate speech, have created lucrative opportunities for themselves as official internet thought police.
Watch Israel's Internet Censorship War, a highly informative video revealing how Israel funds million of dollars to train young people on how to develop fake internet personas (i.e., trolls) to censor and sabotage social media free speech.
If you parrot the Official Narratives, you have little to worry. Those who are at risk are the deep-truth tellers, the courageous souls who do not blindly accept at face value the lies and distortions propagated by the oligarchy and their public-facing puppets. Regardless of whether you have a website or post to one, continue to question and challenge authority. All you visionaries, speak out!
