Truthers - They Walk Amongst Us

A post I would rather not have had any reason to write!

After picking up on this story through a post by commenter Jim on the SDA blog....

It seems that an editor of one of our local newspapers is willing to perpetuate the pack of misrepresentations, fallacies, fables, fantasies and outright lies that are the psychic food of lunatic conspiracy theorists and the misinformed and outright delusional elements of society.

This pack of fools and whack jobs known colloquially as "Truthers" has been building a straw house around the preposterous notion that the events of o9/11 2001 were a conspiracy of :
Pick and choose or mix and match ANY of the following -

The GW Bush White House, a cabal of Ultra Right Wing conservatives in government and private business coupled in some strange fantasy with the CIA, The Israeli Defence and Security bodies, Dick Cheney, Haliburton Corp. , Various "Big Business" groups, a mysterious Zionist Conspiracy, The Pope, Freemasons, "Big Oil" and so on!!!

Feel free to add any and all of your own pet theories here because Lord knows there's never enough potentially evil conspirators to satisfy the fevered imaginations of the mentally unbalanced.

So basically the so called Truthers are against anything that represents the Establishment in their minds and are absolutely determined to make others believe that those three airliners were not hijacked by Islamist Nutjobs that simply murdered 3000 or so folks because they were Infidels! To make a point about their own imagined superiority as muslims. To kill "Westerners" en-masse because their perverted doctrine says that is a good thing to do!
To get revenge on the supposedly EVIL United States of America for a host of supposed transgressions against Arabs and therefore Islam!

Truthers believe that the MASS MURDER was NOT carried out by Muslims bent on mayhem BUT rather the EVIL entities that populate the nightmares of their feverish and deluded minds!

Frankly, I have chosen to ignore these losers who hold such a marginal grip on reality and for the most part just had a bit of a chuckle at the sheer idiocy and ignorance that they display.
I've always felt that casting too much attention on the group tends to get them what they so desperately seek in the attention and the imagined belief or influence they may have on the public at large. After all! They are crusaders of a sort and they do want the satisfaction of winning converts. But the bottom line is the starved for attention grasping of weak minds and perverted characters.

That being said, just how the hell does someone who is paid to be a professional journalist get to the point where he becomes a believer or even proponent of idiotic conspiracy theories??
Ask John Gleeson of the Winnipeg Sun who wrote today:

Scholars debate 9/11 findings

Wherein He Writes:
"An unbiased observer doesn't need to look beyond what's happening on the ground today in Iraq and Afghanistan to conclude the War on Terror has been a brutal, manipulative means to a transparently self-serving end."

So which is it John?
Are you deliberately and cynically proselytizing for the Lunatic Fringe?
Are you a true believer in this unfounded BS?
Are you trying to be Ironic?
Are actually hoping that this will stir up some kind of intelligent debate?
Are you yourself delusional?
Or that you are just plain stupid?

Whatever your motivation Mr. Gleeson the act of publishing this piece of crap does one thing for certain!
You have proven that you lack any credibility as a professional journalist.
I would strongly recommend to the to the board of the Winnipeg Sun that you be removed from your position.
I would suggest that you seek psychiatric help.

I found that article to be more than a little disturbing as well. The worst thing is that these so called "theories" propogate themselves in the future, which will breed more conspiracy theories, which is a tragic slap in the face of the victims of that terrible day. It just goes to show that "everything is America's fault".
