Censorship outrage! Left Forum bans anti-Zionism, 9/11 truth – Muslim perspective not welcome, false flags are taboo


By Kevin Barrett, VT Editor

Pressured by Zionists, the Left Forum – America’s biggest gathering of leftists scheduled for June 2nd-4th in New York City – has canceled three events focusing on 9/11 truth and false flag terrorism. This act of censorship sends a clear message: Muslims, who have been mass-murdered by the millions in the pre-planned anti-Islam holocaust unleashed by the 9/11 operation and its follow-up false flags, must be prevented from conveying their analysis to the thousands of people at the Forum.

Full titles of the banned events:

9/11 Truth: Ground Zero for a Resistance Movement

False Flags: Staged, Scripted, Mass Psy-Op Event

“Terrorism”: Fake Enemies, Fraudulent Wars 

Polls show that the vast majority of the world’s Muslims believes that 9/11 was a false flag operation and the “war on terror” is a disguised war on Islam. Even the most liberal, pro-Western, anti-fundamentalist Muslim leaders like Khaled Abou El Fadl, America’s leading academic expert on Islamic legal traditions, now say that the official story of 9/11 is obviously bogus —and  that 9/11 triggered a disguised war on Islam.

Listen to Prof. Khaled Abou El Fadl apologize for his years of acquiescing to the official myth of 9/11

Leftists are normally sympathetic to persecuted groups, and want to “give them a voice.” So why is the Left Forum silencing Muslims?

The answer is that Zionist Jews have used their money and power to suppress the Muslim-majority viewpoint, not just at the Left Forum, but throughout the West. The main Zionist talking point – backed up by vast sums of money and outsized influence in media, politics, academia, and think tanks and foundations – is that the Muslim-majority viewpoint is “anti-Semitic.”

The Left Forum canceled the proposed panels under pressure from the notorious Zionist thought police group Political Research Associates. PRI attack dog Spencer Sunshine sent the Left Forum Board a long, libelous letter accusing me and others of various thoughtcrimes.

Read the full text of Spenser Sunshine’s letter demanding that 9/11 truth, anti-Zionism and the Muslim-majority viewpoint on these and other issues be suppressed from the Left Forum

Sunshine’s letter singled out yours truly, the only Muslim participant in the panels. The letter begins:

I am writing to you, on behalf of a group of NYC activists, to express our objection to a number of antisemitic conspiracy theorists and Holocaust deniers who appeared on the “Deep State” track” last year. The most well-known of these speakers, Kevin Barrett, bragged on the Far Right website VT that they had tricked the Left Forum into hosting their speakers…

A Left Forum Board source who was present at the Board meeting that canceled the panels stated to a journalist:

I understand they found Kevin Barrett screeds anti Semitic but to punish a whole panel & topic because of one person is very reactionary oppressive and authoritarian and counter to their educational mission. 

The expression “anti-Semitic” is a Zionist dog-whistle for “a Muslim who articulately states the Muslim-majority viewpoint on the ‘war on terror,’ thereby posing a threat to Zionism.”

Spencer Sunshine of Political Research Associates

Zionists – whether hard-line “right-wing” extremists like Bibi Netanyahu or squishy “leftists” like Spenser Sunshine – know that Palestine has been Muslim-administered holy land virtually ever since Islam existed, and that the genocidal Zionist invasion, occupation, and ethnic cleansing of Palestine is an existential war on Islam (as well as an offense to Christianity and Palestinian Christians). As aggressors and genocide perpetrators, the Zionists depend on their control of Western media, both mainstream and “alternative,” to suppress the viewpoint of their victims. And they depend on their control over institutions like the Left Forum to prevent the victims’ viewpoint from being heard by the very people who are most sympathetic to the plight of persecuted and oppressed people – namely leftists.

“Visas for al-Qaeda” whistleblower J. Michael Springmann – hardly a supporter of political Islam – expressed his outrage at the Left Forum’s act of censorship in a letter mailed to the Left Forum board last week:

I am alternately appalled, outraged, and infuriated at your support for the wild, irrational, and unsubstantiated charges Spencer Sunshine filed with your organization . Sunshine is a tin-hat wearing conspiracy theorist. He is also a Zionist dedicated to the overthrow of the 1st Amendment.

Springmann’s letter concludes:

Your website states:  The Left Forum brings together national and international politics, people, ideas, and activism for a just, equitable, free, sustainable world beyond capitalism.  If that is true, you appear to have three choices:  (1.) immediately re-instate the banned panels; (2) resign; (3.) deal with the consequences. You and Spencer Sunshine are bullies. And, as the Palestinian activist Maria LaHood said, “…[T]he tactic of a bully is to silence, malign, or intimidate the speaker.”

Frankly, you and Spencer Sunshine give Jews a bad name.

Personally, I had not known that Spencer Sunshine was Jewish until he told me so when I called him up a couple of weeks ago to ask why he was trying to prevent me from speaking at the Left Forum. (All I knew is that he is associated with PRI, formerly headed by Chip Berlet, leader of efforts to prevent the left from learning the truth about the Kennedy assassinations, 9/11, and other Deep State events.) Listen to Sunshine’s hostile, paranoid reaction to my inquiry:

Please contact the Left Forum Board Members below. Ask them to reinstate the panels they have censored. Tell them that the Left Forum needs to hear what Muslims really think about 9/11 and the “War on Terror.”
