Academic freedom fighter Loretta Capeheart, OKC bombing filmmakers James Lane & Holland Vandennieuwenhof on TJ Radio today

Truth Jihad Radio Fri. 12/9/11, 3-5 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

First hour: Loretta Capeheart, professor and academic freedom-fighter,
who was in court yesterday standing up for free speech and free inquiry, and against the neocon sliming campaigns targeting professors who stand up for truth and justice. (Read the report on her court hearing by fellow academic-freedom-fighter Peter Kirstein, who will be my guest on Monday; Kirstein was "stunned" by the judge's honest and forthright behavior!)

Dana Cloud writes: "There is an emerging front in the struggle for academic freedom. Some university leaders are attacking outspoken faculty on the grounds that university employees have no free speech rights when it comes to criticizing their own institutions. This attack epitomizes Northeastern Illinois University's harassment of justice studies professor Loretta Capeheart, who has been targeted by her administration for her outspokenness for workers' rights in a 2004 faculty strike, against the Iraq war, in defense of student protesters, and for increased representation of minority scholars at NEIU. In retaliation, she was denied merited awards and an appointment to chair of her department - a position to which she was elected. NEIU Vice President Melvin Terrell publicly defamed Capeheart, accusing her without grounds of stalking a student."

Second hour: OKC bombing filmmakers James Lane & Holland Vandennieuwenhof of! Their brand-new film A Noble Lie documents the OKC bombing inside job, and sets the stage for a citizens' mobilization for justice
