Tuesday, April 10th, 2007 | 03:35 pm [9/11, commentary, conspiracy theories]
Steve
Since reviewing Loose Change was so much damn fun, I’m going to spend today shitting on and belittling the paradoxically dubbed 9/11 Truth Movement some more. I want to thank Jerm for giving me the idea. Jerm wrote me about an article I published on American Chronicle yesterday. The article was on the topic of Don Imus’s ongoing crucifixion at the hands of those bulwarks of morality and ethics, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and in the course of defending Imus I went off on a brief tangent about Rosie O’Donnell:
 
Rosie O’Donnell is one of the most unlikable personalities on television (right there with Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, for my money). I don’t find her funny or intelligent and I think the “inside job” theory of 9/11 is ridiculous and pathetic. If ABC wants to fire her, that’s up to them, as it’s up to MSNBC and WFAN if they want to can Imus. There’s just something very troubling about wanting to remove people from the conversation for saying something insensitive or unpopular.
 
That’s one paragraph of an eleven-paragraph piece, and that second clause of the second sentence is the only time I mention the 9/11 “inside job” theory, except to describe it as “delusional” in the preceding paragraph, but that’s easy to miss. This is what moved Jerm to write me. Seeing his wobbly conception of the “truth” of 9/11 belittled was too much for him to take, and he responded thusly:
 
Hello sir,
 
You must know that 9-11 was an inside job. How did building7 collapse at free-fall speed. It was controlled demolition!

Have you seen the evidence?

Why did Larry Silverstein (the building leaseholder) order building 7 to be "pulled" on 9-11?

Have you seen the evidence?
 
Please go to www.FIGHT4TRUTH.com, and see the evidence. All the videos are there for free. It only takes 2 minutes to see what happended
 
If you have seen the evidence already then...are you afraid to admit the truth?

Are you afraid of losing your job or something?...the TRUTH WILL PREVAIL
 
Thanks,
-Jerm
 
The fact that he assumes I will be convinced that a massive governmental conspiracy concocted and perpetrated 9/11 for some sinister and clandestine purpose — despite all evidence to the contrary — by two minutes of video on a website says pretty much all there is to say about Jerm and the folks on his side. I have see the evidence, and all the evidence says that the Twin Towers were hit by two commercial airliners and collapsed because the super-hot fires ignited by the exploding and burning jet fuel damaged the steel — damaged the steel, not melted the steel, you nattering fucking nut-jobs. Similarly, Building 7 collapsed due to fire damage caused by the plane crashes. It did not collapse at “free-fall” speed as some have suggested, and it did not fall into its own footprint.
 
The “evidence” Jerm is talking about isn’t evidence at all, but a loose configuration of conjecture, misdirection and misinterpretation. Larry Silverstein using the phrase “pull it” in an interview to describe his decision to withdraw the firefighters from Building 7 and allow it to collapse, for instance. Conspiracy theorists immediately seized on the fact that “pull it” is also a phrase used in the demolition industry to commence detonation. Since Silverstein uttered the words “pull it” in an interview, and since “pull it” relates to controlled demolition in a completely different context, Silverstein must have demolished the building intentionally. A meaningless coincidence to most rational people; irrefutable proof to a 9/11 Truther.
 
My favorite bit is at the end when Jerm wonders why I won’t admit “the truth” — perhaps because I’m afraid of losing my job? Ha! The joke’s on you, Jerm. I don’t even have a job, motherfucker!

I happen to be a 9-11 truther and only morons can't see that 9-11 was an inside job. The idiot that wrote the article above acts like the firefighters were holding building 7 up so they had to remove the firefighters to allow the collapse - True fucking retardation. The building was taken down by explosives and it did fall at near free-fall speed (anyone that says otherwise is either a noecon or a liar!) Notice he didn't mention the fact that no steel building had ever fallen due to fire, before 9-11? No wonder why nodody reads this stupid page. At least this ignorant article introduced me to the web site that he is trying to bash: fight4truth.com, it's a good site for exposing the evidence. I recommend everyone to visit also infowars.com, 911weknow.com, and 911truth.org -

Mom, I told you to stop commenting, for fuck's sake.

I also recommend that everyone visit infowars.com. I make it my one-stop shop for delusional 9/11 hysteria. Nobody does crazy like Alex Jones does crazy. I hate to play dueling websites, but an excellent place to research how mind-numbingly ridiculous the claims of 9/11 Truthers like this guy are is 911Myths.com, which deals with each piece of "evidence" for the inside job theory and demonstrates through a combination of science and common sense why it's a load of horseshit.

I agree with the first post. Steve is a moron. Anyone with any common sense can see 9-11 was an inside job. It looks like this site is deserted because people know that ignorant is contagious, LOL.
Steve has to post on his own comment board just to get some action going.
Steve likes being a government slave....or maybe he's just a New World Order puppet!

Firstly, saying the site is deserted implies that it was ever populated to begin with. Secondly, is it really as simple as just hitching my wagon to the star of Alex Jones and company? Would I be getting 10,000 hits a day if I merely gave my life over and accepted the gospel of the inside job?

Lastly, thanks to you two and the others who have emailed me about this for opening my eyes to how many thin-skinned lunatics there are in the 9/11 Truth movement. You guys have fun boxing with shadows; the rest of us will be busy in the real world dealing with dangers that actually exist.

I'm glad I found this discussion. I did a search for 9-11 truth and WHAM, here I am!

So You mean to tell me that fire melted steel for the first time in history on 9-11? 9-11 has inside job written all over it!
Fire never melted steel in my grandpas wood burning stove! Jet fuel fire never melts steel in a plane engine cumbustion chamber, and fire didn't make building 7 collapse on 9-11, it was internal explosives.
Hundreds of well know people have come forward on 9-11 being an inside job including physics professors, former government officials, and military personel!
