Send blacklisted prof to Paris!

I'm Dr. Kevin Barrett, and I want you to help send me to Paris.

Here's the deal: While teaching Islamic Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I was targeted by politicians for a national media witch-hunt in 2006. Since then, I have been blacklisted from teaching in the US. I make a living, such as it is, by growing my own food, cutting my own firewood, and doing some freelance writing and broadcasting.

But thanks to generous people like you, I have been able to travel to give talks and attend conferences, even though I no longer have a university job. 

Amazingly, I just had a hard-hitting, truth-telling paper accepted for a mainstream academic conference: The 3rd Islamophobia and Civil Society Conference to be held in Paris December 11th-12th 2015.  To get there, I need about $2,000: $1,300 for airfare (MSN to CDG), $500 for five nights in a cheap Parisian hotel, and $200 for food, metro tickets and so on. (I am staying for five nights, not just two, so I can promote my book We Are Not Charlie Hebdo: http://WeAreNotCharlieHebdo.blogspot.com ).

You can read a synopsis of my paper at:  http://truthjihad.blogspot.com/2015/11/my-paper-was-accepted-please-send-me-to.html

I need to raise this money as quickly as possible. As I write this, the conference is only about a month away, and airfares will keep going up.

By helping me attend this conference, you'll be sending a message: Keep our universities open to people who are willing to think taboo thoughts and ask the hard questions!

I am eternally grateful to the beautiful generous people who have helped me keep pursuing truth, justice, and freedom of inquiry, even when those values have been banished from the academy.

Thank you and God bless you.

Thank you to everyone who helped me travel to Paris for the TWO Islamophobia conferences! Here is the link for the False Flag Islamophobia Conference: http://noliesradio.org/archives/106841

And here is my article about the mainstream Islamophobia and Eroding Civil Society conference, which I attended (but was not allowed to present a paper at) yesterday: http://www.veteranstoday.com/2015/12/12/islamophobia/

I appreciate your support, and couldn't have done it without you.

Thankfully

On November 18th I received this email from the conference organizer:

"Dear Kevin,

Due to state of emergency in France and the on-going active operations, the organizing committee is not able to accommodate your paper at this point in time. Our supporters on the ground are under extreme emergency conditions and the whole program is under stress due to it. I wish it was different but we are taking the direction from the people impacted directly at this time. "

This is richly ironic. My paper discusses how the Western powers-that-be have silenced the more than 80% of Muslims who do not believe the official stories of iconic "Islamic terror attacks" like the one that just happened in Paris. Now they are even silencing my paper!

As a protest, I will attend the Islamophobia and Civil Society Conference and make my point during the Q&A. Then I will make the full censored presentation at the False Flag Islamophobia Conference, an alternative Paris-based cyber- conference which I have helped organize alongside Professor Tony Hall, Globalization Studies, University of Lethbridge, You can watch the livestream December 12th…To Be Live Streamed
from Paris, France. 9:00 am – 1:00 pm Pacific * 12 Noon – 4:00 pm Eastern , 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm Paris * 17:00 – 21:00 GMT

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who stood up for free speech, free inquiry, and "fearless sifting and winnowing in search of truth" by making this project a success! I will be representing all of you at the Islamophobia and Civil Society Conference on December 11th. God bless each and every one of you.

A huge thank you to all my supporters who raised over $700 - more than a third of the goal - in less than a day! I'm optimistic that there will be a "truth" presence at the Islamophobia conference in Paris...insha'allah.
Over 1/3rd there in less than one day!
