As you know, I despise the "controlled demolition" freakazoids. If you look at the history of this, the most inane of all conspiracy theories, you'll see that it originated not on the left but on the libertarian (or neo-Nazi) right
It began with people like Alex Jones, Eric Hufschmid, Jared Israel, Carol Valentine and like-minded individuals. None of them are friends to the left. (Most of them would proclaim themselves to be "beyond" the traditional categories of left and right. Translation: They're right-wingers in disguise.)
In short and in sum, the "controlled demolition" theory was a classic example of the right infiltrating the left -- and a lot of young and very naive lefties fell for it, especially during the 2004-2007 period. In my opinion, this extremely well-funded propaganda effort was a deliberate ratfucking operation designed to decredibilize any inquiry into the real questions surrounding the events of 9/11, such as the involvement of the Saudis and the links between Osama Bin Laden and American (and Pakistani) intelligence. (Spooks are heavily tied into the world of drug trafficking, and Osama was a man with a lot of heroin for sale.)
Now the CDers are trying to ratfuck the Occupy Wall Street movement. They call their hijacking efforts Occupy Building 7
As we've seen with previous anti-OWS efforts, this devious scheme is being promoted via an elaborate, impressive-looking website that obviously cost a fair amount money -- yet the people behind it give no indication as to their identities. The lack of signatures is all the clue you need. Invisible men are trying to manipulate the minds of millions.Classic
The "Occupy Building 7" site is filled with long-debunked misinformation. The key piece of evidence offered by these twerps is Larry Silverstein's "pull it" remark, which he made on TV.
"I remember getting a call from the Fire Department commander, telling me they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, you know, 'We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is just pull it.' And they made that decision to pull and then we watched the building collapse."
As I've noted ad infinitum, he didn't say that they should "pull" the building right then and there
-- seen in context, his words obviously indicate that he simply did not want firefighters to continue to risk their lives trying to save a building best given up for lost. Silverstein also said that the decision was made by the fire chief of New York; I guess the conspiracy nuts must think that he too was party to the Grand Conspiracy.
If we posit a conspiracy, then his statement makes no sense. If he knew that the joint had been surreptitiously wired for controlled demolition (as if such a thing were possible!), he would not be saying "All right, let's pull it" as though making a spur-of-the-moment decision.
The key piece of evidence cited by the "Occupy Building 7" disinformationists turns out to proof that the CD theory is nonsense. If you can't see that obvious fact, then re-read Silverstein's statement until the truth hits you.
The structure was already swaying by the time the firefighters were told to leave -- in fact, the decaying structural integrity is the reason why they were ordered to vacate. There is no mystery
as to what destroyed Building 7 -- the joint contained lots of flammable material, including several massive tanks filled with explosive fuels
. Those who try to convince you that there was a controlled demolition never show you the raging inferno visible in photos taken from the other side of the building.
Just look at the accompanying photo to your right -- a photo which the conspiracy theorists continually try to hide from the public. In a massive blaze like that, any planted bombs surely would have gone off long
before that shot was taken -- and in irregular order.
No, you will not be allowed to debate the point with me. I used to allow that privilege, but the CDers proved themselves to be so obnoxious and stupid that I banished them from my site. I have learned a long time ago that CD maniacs are like religious zealots who try to "witness" to you in public places: You cannot allow them to say one word; you must simply tell them "GO AWAY" in the harshest tone of voice. They are the Borg; they are beyond reason and incapable of debate.
(Nevertheless, I can guarantee that several of these dimwits will try to comment on this post, despite this warning that their words will go unpublished. That's
how stupid they are.)
Will the kids protesting Wall Street in nearby Zuccotti Park fall for this nonsense? I fear so. Many of them are ill-educated and easily gulled. As noted in an earlier post, more OWS marchers favor Rick Perry's flat tax proposal than favor the idea of radically restructuring the economy in a liberal direction. These kids mean well, but young eyes gather much wool.
This new effort may be the OWS-killer.
(In case anyone's interested: I put off my system rebuild because I decided to give Windows 8 a try. For some reason, the three-hour download keeps getting interrupted in medias res.)PS:
Well, it took nearly a full day, but a CD nut finally tried to sneak in a comment. This, despite my clear warning that they have no voice here. Proof, once again, that CD-ers are COMPLETE idiots.
Then again, I'm not feeling like a genius myself. This damned reinstall is taking forever.
