Noam Chomsky, White Knights and 9/11 Truth
Smoking Mirrors Ė April 11, 2008
Well nowÖ it seems that my mention of Chomsky and Raimundo, as well as Palast (but no one chimed in to defend Palast) touched a nerve here and there. Most people agreed with what I had to say and a couple did not. I would appreciate when you have an opinion that you identify yourself on certain occasions. Some of you have given good reason not to and I accept that butÖ I use my real name. I stand behind what I say.
Here is where it is really at and this is going to shake the world. I don't know how this has managed to come about but it is a major league event!
Some of you may think that Chomsky is one of the good guys. I am more inclined to grant Raimundo more leeway than Chomsky or Palast but the fact remains that you canít be a bonafide voice of the people. You canít be a standard bearer for the truth. You canít be a legitimate voice of conscience and all the other things these public white knights present themselves as if you avoid or deny the truth about 9/11.
Iíll put out a few links concerning Chomsky that should say it all. Thereís much more and you can find that on your own time. First, why donít you look Here and Here and Here.
As for Raimundo and Palast Iíll just give you a Google page. You make the call based on what you find there and Iíll go have myself an espresso and an American Spirit rollup and catch back up with you in a few minutes.
Alright then, letís get down to it. Before we get into the body of my argument letís talk about me for a minute. Somebody made a comment that my having comment moderation might indicate that I censor comments. Of course, my wearing a red shirt might indicate Iím a communist and the fact that I am a good dancer may indicate Iím gay. Youíre free to make up your mind on these things according to your own criteria.
I have comment moderation because spam bots get you otherwise. I also have it because occasionally someone gets into a rant about Jews or just wants to anonymously curse at me. Iím okay with that but I expect you to at least give your name. Itís important to understand that I have no problem with Jews per se or anyone per se. Iíve got a problem with psychopaths. It could be said that you have a problem with psychopaths too. And whatever creed or color they hide underÖ Iím not fond of them. Itís unfortunate for me when some of them turn out to be Jews because youíre not allowed to criticize them for anything period. But Iím not going to let genuine anti-Semites use my blog for their rants. No more than once a week do I reject a comment, it is rare.
Today, someone anonymously screamed at me about speaking to such a supportive audience; all the good comments I get. What am I supposed to do about that? Iíll tell you this, just because I get a lot of laudatory statements doesnít give me a free pass when it comes to the truth. Iím grateful most people like rather than hate me but I canít get into the headspace of thinking Iím better than others or more worthy. Iím not. If you catch me shying away from the truth or fashioning an agenda then you have every right to call me on it. So far my track record looks pretty good and Iíve got a highly intelligent audience. You may be sure if I fuck up that I will be very publicly sorry about it. I will apologize and ask for your forgiveness.
OkayÖ hereís how it is. EverythingÖ everything we are going through; all the draconian security measures that screw up our freedom of expression and movement are because of the 9/11 attacks. They are also pointless because the terrorists in question happen to be the state itself, with the assistance of at least one other nation. All of the deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq; the savage butchery in Palestine and the raping and pillaging of the American economy by Halliburton and so many other blood sucking siphon machines are all happening and have happened because of 9/11.
9/11 was blamed on a man who denied it and who supposedly headed up an organization that high ranking members of the CIA say does not exist. The myriad of connections between Israel and 9/11 is tremendous and no amount of coincidence can account for it. People who have been connected to their countries secret service; ex-presidents and high officials in various lands have said that 9/11 was an inside job and some have laid the blame at the feet of the CIA and Mossad. I tend to believe that MI-6 had some connection to it as well. They certainly were connected to 7/7 in the London tube. The same Israeli security firm was in charge of all 9/11 airports, the London tube and the Madrid train station. I can go on and on about Dancing Israeliís and OdigoÖ the sheer weight of the evidence isÖ I canít find a word for it.
Every rock you turn over you find someone like Larry Silverstein or Bennie Netanyahu looking back at you. The absurdity of three enormous towers coming down at free fall into their own footprints and so on and so on and so on and thenÖ who benefited? Boom! Öright back to the same people again.
So I donít see how I can trust all the articulate commentary from these men on a wide variety of subjects when they ignore or deny the linchpin of the whole deal. And what does it matter what they have to say about these things when the cause of all of these things is the very subject that they ignore or deny? Do they ignore or deny it from good senseÖ from fearÖ from complicity? I donít know. Whatever their reasons are cancels out any standing they might have in my mind. Iím only giving my opinion. This is only how I see it but that is the way it is for me. These men are posturing from their ivory towers as courageous combatants for human freedom and veneration of the truth yet they will not address the MAIN ISSUE. It all comes down to 9/11 period. Itís all happening because of 9/11. The buck stops there.
ďBut visible, theyíve done a lot of goodÖ yackety yack, yackety yack.Ē Thatís like saying Paul Wolfowitz doesnít beat his wife or Rupert Murdoch donates a lot of money to good causes (which I wouldnít know about, itís just a hypothetical example). It doesnít somehow make it all okay.
9/11 is the litmus test. If you arenít focused on that and if you arenít out front about where the evidence leads then what good are you? Letís face it, if you tell the truth about 9/11 then your book deals and speaking engagements; your cozy associations with powerful individuals who open the doors are all going to take a hit. Read those links on Chomsky and you tell me what Iím supposed to think. 9/11 was an inside job! 9/11 was an Inside Job!! 9/11 was an Inside Job!!! 9/11 was an Inside Job!!!! And Israel was involvedÖ
If you are a public figure and if your livelihood and your reputation are based on telling the truth and you canít say this then you are not what you make yourself out to be and that, according to me, makes you a hypocrite. Remember that these are highly intelligent individuals. These are people with great research skills and reasoning ability. There is no way that they do not know what we know. Thereís no way around it. Itís fine if they are in some other line of work but they are not. This is their line of work.
Iím tired of these men and so many others. I am tired of Daily Kos and so many others who make out how they are all about freedom and democracy; transparency and truthÖ high-minded words with no more substance than a dreamÖ shining white knights with feet of clay.
You can go ahead and get angry at me, be offended, think Iím too righteous about the whole thingÖ ďHey, visible, ease up, cut some slackÖ we all have to make compromises to get by.Ē Iím sorry but thatís not going to fly with me. People have died. PEOPLE HAVE DIED! People are being tortured and locked up for years. An entire nation of people is displaced in Iraq and the suffering is immense. In PalestineÖ ohÖ what can I say? I want to cry but my tears will serve no purpose at allÖ all because of 9/11Ö all because of liesÖ all this murder goes on every day, courtesy of the people who did 9/11 in the first place and now they murder those whom they have accused of their crimes. They torture them for information that only they possess.
If you are in a position to know the truth and you have a reputation for telling the truth and you do not, then maybe this will shame you into it but I suspect it wonít. Iím sorry I had to say these things but you show me another way. Maybe you know something I donít. Maybe you can help me to understand because I donít understand. I see lies and I see murder most foul. If you support these lies then your hands have blood on them.
