I’ve been talking about the 9/11 so-called truth movement lately and how they have grown increasingly irritating as time goes on and all their claims have been answered or debunked. (for all my liberal friends reading this who buy into it, please order this issue of skeptic magazine). Hurricane Katrina gave birth to the claim the the levy was blown up so capitalists could build condos in the 9th ward (I guess gentrification wasn’t working) so I figured this would spawn some crapola as well. I was right.
About five minutes after news of the wildfires broke, every political ideologue in the country seemed to have their mind made up about what caused it–Global Warming, environmentalists, Mexicans, and Al Qaeda (as suggested by FOX, naturally.)
The next morning, Randi Rhodes, the top Liberal radio host in the country, went on air with an opening monologue accusing Blackwater of orchestrating the fires so they could build their base in the desert. She offered no proof. I guess she really is our answer to Rush Limbaugh. Is proof needed for anything anymore or is it just the person that more forcefully declares themselves to be true that gets to win?
The character in the comic is a thinly veiled Alex Jones, who has turned into somewhat of a shrill, pudgy messiah over the last few years for the conspiracy left and militia movement right alike.
He’s put together a new “documentary” called Endgame, which basically connects everything that ever was– Darwin, Hitler, Science, The Roman Empire, International Bankers, the UN and god knows what else–into an allegedly coherent expose:
For the New World Order, a world government is just the beginning. Once in place they can engage their plan to exterminate 80% of the world’s population, while enabling the “elites” to live forever with the aid of advanced technology.
Hot Damn! He blew the lid off of a thousand year old conspiracy and wasn’t killed. I guess taking out Jones is more risky than killing JFK or demolishing the towers.
