Skip to comments.Bill Clinton Takes On 9/11 Conspiracy Protesters
Posted on 10/26/2007 11:46:01 AM PDT by SoldierDad
Bill Clinton addressed a crowd in Minneapolis, Minnesota at a fundraiser for his wife's campaign on Tuesday.
Clinton's 50-minute speech, which started about an hour behind schedule, was derailed briefly by several hecklers in the audience who shouted that the 2001 terrorist attacks were a fraud. Rather than ignoring them, Clinton seemed to relish a direct confrontation.
"A fraud? No, it wasn't a fraud," Clinton said, as the crowd cheered him on. "I'll be glad to talk to you if you shut up and let me talk."
When another heckler shouted that the attacks were an "inside job," Clinton took even greater umbrage.
"An inside job? How dare you. How dare you. It was not an inside job," Clinton said. "You guys have got to be careful, you're going to give Minnesota a bad reputation."
Pandering for his wife’s campaign? Genuine belief? Who knows?
Complete set up. She has no credible opposition for the nomination so the rodents are positioning her more toward the middle now. Her degnerate husband is out doing the work honest people won’t do.
This is Hillary’s attempt at a Sister Soulja moment, by proxy.
Well, I say good for him for speaking up about it instead of letting it ride.
It was a setup!
If they had shouted about his ignoring terrorism while it festered under his administration, that would have been real.
He’s good at adlibbing.
Its sad to say that Bill Clinton appears to be a more reasonable person than Ron Paul.
Its also sad to say, in a head-to-head contest between Clinton and Paul ... I’d lean toward Bubba. Perish the thought.
If this was a genuine event and not staged. It’s hard to know to what extent these two will go to get Shrillery elected.
She passed up her true sista soulja moment when she wimped out on the moveon.org hit piece on the good general. She's as phony as the day is long.
Search LiveLeak or YouTube for “Clinton” and “Angry” and see how many you get.
I know the feeling. It’s like when watching an NFL game where you hate both teams, but you want one to lose to help out the team you do like, making you root for the other one (example for me - rooting for the hated Rams playing the Seahawks because the Seahawks losing helps the 49ers - okay, so I’m delusional).
Minnesota already has a bad reputation. That’s why clinton is giving speeches and franken is running for Senate there.
He’s good at those Sister Souljah moments, isn’t he?
Well well well. I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt. He is a womanizer and a liberal but he’s not crazy like the truthers are.
From what I am gathering...all democrats in the public eye are denouncing these loony people because they are becoming a very bad pimple on the butt of the party. They don’t want to be associated with these loons....
I vehemently detest Bill Maher, but I give credit where its due and I like the way he handled the truthers last week.
Love the “Niners!
“shut up and let me talk”
I think most liberal, somewhere in the dark recesses of their small mind have a tiny bit of sense. But the truthers have none. Zip, zero, nada!
LOL! They should hand you a blue ribbon for that one.
Should have read “liberals” and “minds” although it’s dang near impossible to think of the 2 words actually being in the same sentence.
The truthers also believe that....
...Al Gore Junior won in 2000.
...John Kerry won in 2004.
...man is causing global warming.
...man can counteract the effects of global warming.
...it is better to live under socialism than to live as a free man.
Just wait until he claims he has cancer and gets Hillary the sympathy vote.
And GWB killed Paul Wellstone and JFK. And now they believe Blackwater set the California fires.
Right. To clarify his position, Bill Maher doesn’t believe that the 9-11 attacks were an inside job. Bill believes that the 9-11 attackers were braver men than our troops because they were men of action who gave their lives for a cause they believed in while our boys push a button from a plane over a city like “cowards”.
That and having to buy cigars that have a $10 added tax on each one. Bet that’ll cut down on the blue dresses.
Bill Clinton was a truther when it came to his conspiracy theory about a non-existent racist rash of Southern church fires.
“You guys have got to be careful, you’re going to give Minnesota a bad reputation.”
Thats why I detest him......
He is the main reason I do not have HBO in my house. I refuse to pay his salary.
....but he did handle the truther well ~ and he wasn’t feel-goody polite about it either.
The Truthers are far too whacked-out to make deals with anyone.
I joined the “Loose Change” forum, and the level of discourse there is 10th grade slacker. It’s so lame and utterly stupid that it doesn’t even quicken the pulse or impel you to respond.
And of course the “movement” hinges on a campaign of transparent propaganda contrived by a high school student who fancies himself the intellectual equal of trained graduate and Phd scientists and engineers.
On a general stupidity scale, the ranking is something like this (selectively stupid to stupid as a box of rocks stupid, reading down):
Clinton knows it wasn’t an inside job. I don’t like this man, and I do believe many things he did in office harmed this country some in traitorous ways... but even he knows that we were attacked by a calculating and evil enemy on 9/11. One sadly he ignored for 8 years and allowed to fester and grow.
Even a impeached, degenerate, raping, coke head, lying sack of s*it like Bill Clinton knows that the truthers are out of their mind and hurting the political process, especially the dems.
Even in general the more these nut cases are heard the more it makes the ignorant masses think were there is smoke, there is fire.
You know if a pubbie had said that, the media would lead with “Republicans stifling dessent” or “Republican against free speech” or some other nonsense.
Seeing logical patterns in a sequence of random events or stimuli is a precursor to schizophrenia.
No /sarc, no joke.
I don’t like the Klintoons, but even 2x a day a broken clock is right.
Good for BillyBoy for shooting down these damned-fool idiot assholes.
He had the FBI resources used in the late 1990s hunting for non-existent racist arsonists.
9-11 was a result of his refusal to admit that there were more dangerous people in the United States than “anti-government right wingers”.
There was a coverup conspiracy related to 9-11. What it was, we will never know until someone on the inside talks.
But then the MSM would simply state that they didn’t bite because Bill Clinton is not a candidate nor a politician now.
Of course, if non-candidate non-politician Ann Coulter had said that, they’d still be all over her.
Hmm. I missed that.
Thats right. I remember that.
Where the heck did you get that? That’s cool!
As for Clinton, I basically hate him and HillBill but sometimes they actually get it right. And even I haven’t believe EVERY rumour about them (just most - like the Truthers, eh?).
Anyone who reads their spew for awhile can definitely see mental illness in them. The scary thing is they are not getting real help and are still voting.
The living room here is full of furniture. Sometimes it's hard to see everything.
No biggie. It was all staged by the way. Bill is a liar and a fake. He's also a guy that will spew on an intern in the White Housegiven the chance.
Some folks seem to have forgotten what a devoid sociopath Bill is. Not me. He has no standing to dress down anyone else for anything.
He's right, it was not an inside job. But it was heavily assisted by the Clinton Administration, from Clinton not doing a damn thing to stop Al Queda, to Gore accepting campain cash from the airlines to ease up on stricter airplane security guidelines!
That picture of all brite, makes me ill.. I can only vision her trying to put panty hose on those elephant trunks, she has for legs..
I think it was from a PBS photo shoot. It is genuine and I wish that I could get it on an authorized t-shirt for the 2008 election year.
