In today’s show originally broadcast on January 12 2019, EuroFolkRadio’s Andrew Carrington Hitchcock interviews Dr. James F. Tracy, for a show entitled, “What Happened To James Tracy Could Happen To You…”
Editor’s Note: This excellent sit down interview with Officer Ericson Harrell of the North Miami Police Department was conducted in Spring 2018. MHB readers will recall (here and here) that in 2018 Officer Harrell was placed under administrative leave by his state employer when local news media attacked him for his use of social media to comment on complex public events, including the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting event in Parkland Florida.
Kevin Barrett and James Tracy discuss free speech, academic freedom and the TracyvFAU case that is presently before the US Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. This program originally aired on August 10, 2018.
Defamatory Campaign Unleashed As Prof Increasingly Questioned 9/11, “War on Terror”
This is the first of a two-part edition of Real Politik featuring Canadian Professor Anthony Hall, Dr. Kevin Barrett, and Jeremy Rothe-Kushel. The discussion focuses on the targeting of Hall by organized pro-Israeli pressure groups and mass media that led University of Lethbridge administrators to suspend him from his tenured academic post.
Dr. Hall is an accomplished scholar of political economy and globalization studies whose work centers on the history of indigenous North Americans. A faculty member at Lethbridge since the early 1990s.He has taken courageous public stances on geopolitical issues including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, 9/11 and the US-led “war on terror.”
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.
