The Kook Patrol (vanity)
Aug 26, 2007 | 13Sisters76

Posted on 08/25/2007 11:08:56 PM PDT by 13Sisters76

The History Channel is running a pretty good special on the assorted groups behind the 9-11 conspiracy theories. I decided to take a look at some of these sites, particularly the site devoted to the "documentary" called "Loose Change". This is the one that Charlie Sheen is supposed to be considering narrating.

What I found was the usual collection of goofballs, morons and runaway nutjobs. It seems no amount of factual information can influence these people. What they display is the expected amount of self-delusional fantasies and paranoia. What I found that I DID'T expect (but should have) was that, sooner or later, what they are ALL about is the same old "I Hate Bush" anti-war nonsense.

Free Rep won't let me post the links- these groups are not welcome (no surprise there) but they are certainly easy enough to find for anyone who cares to keep an eye on the loose kooks that are among us.

I wonder if Sheen's willingness to be involved is directly proportional to his blood drug level...?

Is it just me, or were these idiots just a lot more fun when all they were worried about was being abducted by aliens?

“It seems no amount of factual information can influence these people.”

Democrats for sure.

maybe one of the lawyer types here on FR can answer a question I’ve had for a while now-since people such as Alex Jones are getting monetary gain for perpetuating a mythical sequence of events for 9/11 are there grounds for some one to sue them for fraud?

I recorded the program and will be viewing it in the next few days.

I did watch a few moments of the show already. One person mentioned the windows blowing out of the Trade Center buildings as they went down, as evidence of demolition bombs going off. I can’t imagine someone dumb enough not to understand the incredible pressures building up in front of the collapse. Some windows blew out. It’s really amazing more didn’t IMO.

Body parts were found across the street in other buildings, as well as beams and other building materials from the Trade Centers. All that shaking, it’s no surpise to me those buildings were severly damaged.

I do entertain some conspiracy theories from time to time, but the Trade Center has remained rather logical for me. I don’t see anything warranting claims of a conspiracy, except the conspiracy of Middle-Easterners that brought the buildings down.

History channels description of there program.

Examines the various conspiracy theories espoused on the Internet, in articles and in public forums that attempt to explain the 9/11 attacks. It includes theories that the World Trade Center was brought down by a controlled demolition; that a missile, not a commercial airliner, hit the Pentagon; and that members of the U.S. government orchestrated the attacks in hopes of creating a war in the Middle East. Each conspiracy argument is countered by a variety of experts in the fields of engineering, intelligence and the military. The program also delves into the anatomy of such conspiracies and how they grow on the Internet.

I watched it too. It was very well done. These “Troofers” are turds floating in a sea of puss. I despise them.

Popular Mechanics deserves an award for the debunking. It was a public service.

There is a need for some people to believe in the big lie.

From what I’ve already viewed, it looked like a good presentation. Thanks for the description. It sounds like the parts I saw. Glad to hear the rest followed the same format.

If Bush was willing and able to blow up the towers and kill all these people to help his oil friends, why do people like Charlie Sheen feel safe speaking about it in public? Do they have special underwear to protect them?

Do they show the very convincing “rabbit cage” test from DUmmie Land in the film?

This garbage has no place here on FR. Oh wait yes it does, the Daily Kos/DU/Ron Paul contingent.

No primary votes for insanity here.

Absolutely. The “anxiety factor” goes up astronomically when you realize these terminal nutters might have some effect on the selection of government officials.

Any time, give me the good old days when they were worrried about UFOs and celebrities didn’t feel compelled to comment on things, for them, as boringly mundane as the everyday workings of government.

The only conspiracy theories I entertain are that perhaps more Middle Eastern GOVERNMENTS were involved than we thought previously. Now if they wish to do a program on THAT conspiracy, I’m all ears.

We also need to remember President Bush was able to marshall all these malevolent forces after being in office only some 9 months. Now to me that qualifies as a laudable superhuman effort!

I frankly don’t believe that the government is competent enough to have pulled this off, so that’s my barrier to buying any of this conspiracy stuff, despite some questions I have. But, with all of the wacky things that people believe in, is it really any surprise that so many seem to religiously believe that 9/11 was an “inside job?”

what they are ALL about is the same old "I Hate Bush" anti-war nonsense.

I see those "9/11 was an inside job", Bush $u(k$, W with a / thru it and other leftist bumper stickers in Austin on a regular basis. The local (and national) news people may as well start every news cast by saying: "I hate George W Bush, I hate Republicans and I hate America". "Now for the news------"

Someone sent me an address to check out an on-line video of ‘the truth’. I only watched a small portion of it. When they said something was nefarious about the Pentagon doing practice sessions in case of airplane attack, I turned it off. I am very happy to know that the Pentagon is looking into all types of scenarios and trying to protect itself from attack. It is doing its job. It IS one of the major targets for attack. Geez, these people are idiots.

Serious obstacles to doing so.

Courts would not give you ‘standing” to enter case. You are an outsider.

How were you damaged mentally by these actions?

They would cite “free speech” issues. although their protection there is not as absolute as one might think.

Even if you won, they would hide their money to prevent actual recovery.

Reality:? No chance of recovering $

The 9-11 kooks are the exact copy of the Kennedy assassination kooks we have right here on FR. Same mentality and psychological defects. All they do is substitute “Bush’s Fault” with “LBJ’s Fault”.

In fact, every month on the eleventh, the truthers picket at Dealy Plaza.
