Sheen Rethinks Nutty 9/11 Film
New York Post ^ | May 27, 2007 | Richard Johnson

Posted on 05/27/2007 1:18:06 PM PDT by West Coast Conservative

SUPPORT for the loopy 9/11 documentary "Loose Change" - which argues that the World Trade Center terror attack was part of a secret U.S. government conspiracy - is quickly losing steam.

A source tells us Charlie Sheen "is having second thoughts" about being involved in an updated version of the flick, which has a huge following on YouTube. As Page Six reported in March, Sheen had agreed to narrate the ridiculous flick, presumably to give it some needed Hollywood sizzle.

The conspiracy documentary got a further boost earlier this month when Virgin Atlantic announced it would offer the current, narration-free version as an in-flight movie choice. But just days later, it scrapped the idea. "After Virgin announced it, bloggers went nuts and there was so much negative feedback that [the airline] a few days later nixed it," the source said.

After we revealed Sheen's participation, the "Two and a Half Men" star told Extra: "It's a story that needs to be told. It's a story about the truth, and the truth needs to be exposed. It's not just me, not just the Hollywood community [that] is standing up saying what you have given us doesn't make sense. We just want better answers." As for Sheen now pulling his support, the star's flack, Stan Rosenfield, did not return calls over two days.

And to think Mark Cuban was going to bankroll this. That’s why I’m so glad the Mavs lost in the first round.

Note to Charlie: You do not understand it because you are an actor, not an engineer or scientist. And you also suffer from the same mental disorder that Rosie does - liberalism and ignorance.

What were they thinking at Virgin Airlines????? A movie that involves a conspiracy about 9-11??? You know when they flew AIRPLANES into buildings??? Forget how kookie the plot is. Just a stupid idea for an in-flight movie....

Has anyone ever thought of a conspiracy theory involving the Clintons vis a vis 9/11??? After all, Clinton never answered the call when our boys had Bin Laden in their sites. Additionally, what documents DID Sandy Berger take? I bet the Clintons KNEW 9/11 was going to happen - and possibly even cut a deal with Bin Laden to do it so they could topple our government and take over. WHY did Bill hang around so long on inauguration day and WHY did Gore drag out his lawsuit? Bill and Hill want to be dictators for life and they will do ANYTHING to make it happen.

Has anyone ever looked into the fact that JFK Jr’s crash occurred shortly after a VERY negative article in George Magazine about Hillary? Also - he was interested in running for the Senate seat she now holds! The body count grows!

Me too. I also think Dirk and his buddy, Steve Nash, are bid time anti-Americans. So I was glad to see the Suns crash and burn also. Another player I love to see is totally failing to live up to hype is Adam Morrison. He was another Bill Walton politically. I think he was player of the year his senoir year in college but after watching him play, you could see he was another over-rated great white dope.

ATTENTION, ALL HOLLYWOOD ACTORS!

Before you run your mouths on scientific issues, enroll in a couple science courses at local college or university. Any chemistry, physics, engineering, scientific reasoning, or logic course would be a good start. Any remedial mathematics class would also be of great benefit.

If you wish to comment on 9/11 issues, please stop by any Materials Science & Engineering or Civil Engineering department and they will GLADLY inform you on the science behind building collapses.

It’s not that difficult to understand. There’s no good reason to be ignorant of scientific principles and reasoning.

My wife and I too were thrilled to see the Mavs go down hard, for the same reason. Mark Cuban also produced a film which paints suicide bombers in a favorable light. He is one of the worst scumbags in America.

OBJECTION! Assumes a fact not in evidence!...that Charlie Sheen ever had a FIRST thought...about anything but his next hooker [if that].

Many will place "The Flat Earth Society" into high regard if it makes them feel good.

Too many place contentment and ease above reality.

Such is life....

Like Trump said to him a few weeks ago, “Cuban, you`re a loser!” lol!

Although Trump can kiss my butt for saying last year Bush is the worst President ever, I must admit lately he`s been picking on the right people.

There’s no good reason to be ignorant of scientific principles and reasoning.

The "good reason" is that reality always devastates moonbat logic an the moonbats know it.

I think what's involved here is a business principle. Sheen has found out that holding a moonbat position could cost him millions.

The reason they wanted this shown on a plane was because nobody could walk out or change the channel. Leftist love a captive audience.

One of these days, it will dawn on some of these pea-brains that the truly controversial thing to do anymore in America, is to question liberal orthodoxy.

The pendulum is poised to begin, a powerful swing back from “political correctness” and all the other leftwing nonsense which so pollutes American discourse.

Once it starts, the world will watch spellbound.

Big time.

Can’t stand Trump. Loved Cuban’s response:

“I guess Donald is still upset that he can’t afford to buy an NBA team. No doubt the cash requirements of more than $10,000 created a problem for him. Hopefully he will sell enough Trump Steaks, Trump Perfume and Trump Dolls to save some money and buy a team. Then we can see how he does. Until then he is a wannabe that needs to get a new spiel.”

Moon-bats see Dubya' in their own image and assume that he is from Hollywood and is stupid and believes conspiracy tripe to maintain a following.

When in fact his roots are in Texas and reality is well placed in his thoughts.

Yeah, Trump has reduced himself to nothing more than a money whore now, pretty close to being a grifter. Getting involved in wrestling pretty much ends that argument. How low will this guy go? Can you believe he`s got his kids involved now?

A few months ago I actually got a card in the mail inviting me to spend money to hear his kid (I believe it was Donald Trump Jr. who is about 25 years old) give a speech on how to make money in real estate! lol! Can you imagine having this guy as your father? The pressure on these kids must be insane. “Get out there and sell sell SELL!”

I must say though, his verbal assault on Rosie O`Donnell was classic. Only he could get away with calling a Hollywood radical leftist lesbian a “degenerate”. Anybody else would have had every gay and lesbian group in existence calling for their head.
