The Reverend Fr. Dennis H. Holtschneider: upholding the DePaul tradition on free speech

Many people believe that The Reverend Fr. Dennis H. Holtschneider was unduly influenced in his decision to deny Norman Finkelstein’s tenure because of the damning dossier on Finkelstein sent to the Dean by Alan Dershowitz AKA “the Dersh”, “Fake”, “Plagiarist”, “the dude who keeps saying Ad Hominem”, “Morty the troll” co-author of the authoritative commentary of “From Time Immemorial” as told to a research fellow that’s not too hot at spelling or checking the sources.
The Reverend Father wrote that Norm, as with all staff, needed to: "strive to be objective in their professional judgment of colleagues."
straightchris was so moved by his conviction that he sent an email to Holtschneider of DePaul praising his believes:
Thank you for keeping up the tradition of suppressing academic freedom, your part in Norman Finkelstein’s tenure bid is outstanding!
We live in modern times and it is unfortunate that Norm didn’t suffer the same fate as Cayetano Ripoll…
Keep the up doctrine of faith!
