It’s been 5 days since the 10th anniversary of the events of the 11th of September 2001, and almost an entire month since I last wrote anything on this ghastly blog, so I suppose I should break my silence in the most batshit way possible. Well, maybe not the most batshit – the most batshit would probably be announcing that I am joining the Scientologist movement and that, like, paedophiles are, like, SO awesome. Thankfully, I’m not going to do that.
I’m saving it for next month.
No, today I’m merely going to reveal what most folk close to me already know; I don’t believe the offical story of 9/11, and I believe the 9/11 Commission was a whitewash. In short, I am a 9/11 Truther.
Phew. That’s me ostracised from pretty much every social group I hitherto inhabited. In one fell swoop too. Not bad.
I’ve been of the opinion that there is something just kinda off about the majority consensus on 9/11 for about 5 years now. I had been aware of the conspiracy theories and whatnot before, but they were mostly fucknuts retarded – No Plane Theory? Illuminati? Mossad? Wtf? – or incredibly poorly-researched to the point of being laughable.
Loose Change brought the strands together in a calm and hysteria-free manner, and even though there were some claims and conclusions in it that I doubted/disagreed with, there was one point it made that has not been convincingly rebutted since, and that is the collapse of WTC7. Building 7 is pretty much the foundation of my attitude of doubt towards the agreed-upon conspiracy theory – 19 guys with box-cutters, masterminded by a guy in a cave in Afghanistan etc – and surely provides the greatest difficulty for those trying to adhere to the narrative provided by the 9/11 Commission et al.
A mate posted a link on Facebook to this video, it is pretty brilliant;
Even so, I am well aware that voicing even the slightest disbelief of the official story does happen to align me with some of the craziest bastards on the planet while, at the same time, divides me from the people with whom I see eye-to-eye on what I (and indeed they) would consider to be the more substantive issues of our time; capitalism, imperialism, socialism, marxism, revolution, the environment, solidarity, etc.
Ah well. I suppose all I can do is await the wrath and pointed fingers of derision. So be it.
Solidarity brothers & sisters… ☭
P.S. I’d recommend that everyone watch Loose Change: An American Coup. Even if you don’t agree with it, or don’t see any merit in questioning what happened, it’s still an excellent film.
