German student suspended for questioning 9/11

A message to German blogger from Dominik, 18, a student in Duisburg Germany. This just shows you that the mainstream education system is as bad as the mainstream news, even somewhere like Germany that has already been through this TOTALITARIANISM! Anyway, regardless of the country you would have thought that school children could have an open and honest debate about glaring inconsistencies in the official 9/11 story or even criticise American-style globalisation without being thrown out of class? I thought we lived in a democracy where we all had the freedom to express our opinions? Truth does not need laws to uphold it or storm-troopers to enforce it, truth stands on its own like a bright light in a dark room. Dominik deserves a medal and his teacher and head-teacher should be ashamed of themselves! They are accusing him of the very neo-Nazi behaviour that they themselves are demonstrating by their censorship of his opinions.

"It was a nice Monday morning und motivated as usual I went to school for my first two hour lesson in social sciences (advanced classes). Out teacher met us in the class room and asked us to go to the video room, were we where to view a film. At the moment we are working on the subject of globalisation and we have looked at it from all points of view, except for national security. For this part we watched a documentary from Spiegel TV with the title “The day that shook the world”. This documentary shows mostly the “run-up” to September 11, 2001, and it gives an impression of the lives of the perpetrators and shines a light on it starting from their studies up till September 11, 2001. There was much talk how the attackers prepared themselves, what motives they had, and how they trained in martial arts and by taking flying lessons. During the film I noticed a few minor discrepancies, which took the credibility out of the whole thing. At the end of the documentary our teacher asked us how we experienced that day and how the attack made an impression on us, plus what we thought of the film. I responded with a wide grin, because I had researched the subject a lot and I was happy to pass my knowledge on to my class mates, hoping to get good grades. I started by presenting the 4 or 5 oddities of the documentary one after the other to make them present again and elaborated on them. After that my teacher (with whom I normally have a good relationship as class speaker and as a friend) looked at me sceptically and he rebuffed me, that these where all just “conspiracy theories” and they don’t belong here. I responded, that this was my opinion regarding the film and the subject and with an undertone I said “they are telling us only bullshit anyway” with which I quietly closed my contribution to the lesson. The teacher asked me if I could repeat that again and I spoke my sentence in somewhat higher German. The teacher leaned back and asked me to explain, then I started to illustrate most part of my knowledge about 9/11. Because I emphasised what bullshit the official story is, which the normal folks are hearing via the mass media, I was asked to leave the class room, because the teacher thought I was criticising him, by making his teaching material look bad. At the end of the lesson the teacher came out of the room and asked me, if I was serious about this “garbage” I was talking about a few minutes ago. I responded with yes and explained that America is only pulling our leg and I explained that my talk was not intended as an attack on his person. He looked at me confused and then he sent me to the headmistress with the words “let’s have a look what Mrs. … says about this.” Completely wondering why I had to go to the head of the school I entered her office. She asked me to explain my opinion on the subject, which I did. With a mixture of shock and astonishment, she sent me out of the office for a few minutes. I stood outside and thought in those 5 minutes “my goodness, what is going on, I just wanted to make a good contribution and what is the result? They are just about to arrest me…” She asked me to come back in and I had to hear, that I will be suspended from the school for two days, because I asked questions about the teaching methods of the teacher, plus because I was spreading anti-American slogans, which where partially neo-Nazi. At this moment I thought something like “what the f…???” and went home."
