This week political cartoonist Ben Garrison returns to the program to discuss the revival of his political visual commentary in the midst of the most tumultuous presidential campaign in recent history. Garrison also discusses his struggle with online trolls over the past several years, the broader war on free speech and political dissent, and how such phenomena are illustrated in the defamatory campaign against Canadian Professor Anthony Hall in October 2016 that led to the academic’s suspension from his university earlier this month.
In a sea of homogeneity Ben Garrison’s trailblazing work offers a truly unique perspective on political and economic concerns. A longtime professional painter and freelance graphic artist, his first cartoons appeared in The San Angelo Standard Times in the early 1980s. Garrison has since been a graphic artist at the The San Antonio Express News and The Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
Over the past week MHB has been covering the defamatory false flag techniques employed by powerful anti-free speech forces in Canada against University of Lethbridge Professor Tony Hall that resulted in Dr. Hall’s October 5 suspension without pay by Lethbridge administrators. That action has since been condemned by the University of Lethbridge Faculty Association.
Below is the inflammatory image posted on Hall’s Facebook page without his knowledge. According to political cartoonist Ben Garrison, it was altered by infamous internet troll Joshua Goldberg when Goldberg and others led an online campaign to frame Garrison as a White Supremacist.
“Goldberg attacked me as early as 2010 on Facebook using the handle ‘MoonMetropolis,'” Garrison told MHB in an email.

In recent days I discovered that the Canadian branch of the Israeli-US-based Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith is reporting that I am “well known for using academic credentials to deny the Holocaust.” On August 29, Daniel Leons-Marder mirrored the Canadian B’nai Brith report under the title, “Facebook Allows ‘Kill All Jews’ Post on Wall of Canadian Professor.” In an item Leons-Marder claims has been shared 11,000 times, he asserted “B’nai Brith Canada reported the image, which was ruled acceptable [by Facebook] within two hours, when it was alerted to it having been posted on the Facebook page of Canadian Academic Professor Anthony Hall, who is a holocaust denier.”
