9/11 truth activists should mob Cockburn

by Left gatekeepers need 2 B exposed Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2007 at 12:06 PM

Known left gatekeeper and 9/11 truth "debunker" Alex Cockburn now is attempting to debunk global warming "hysteria" at a forum in SF. Just wonder how many 9/11 "wingnuts" will be forcibly removed from this propaganda fest?

Alex appears in SF;

Thursday December 06

TIME: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Location Details:

Station 40

3030b 16th St. (@ Mission)

San Francisco

"How The Left Lost its Nerve and Embraced the Politics of Fear

From Small is Beautiful, Less is More, to the Hysteria over global Warming

Alex Cockburn will trace how, over the past 25 years, the Left has dumped any generous social vision in favor of planned shrinkage, Malthusian scaremongering and the politics of triage.

All in one hour.

(no one turned away for lack of funds)

This is a benefit for independent media projects within the Oaxaca rebellion."

Personally i would like to see as many 9/11 truth activists show up at this speech by left gatekeeper Cockburn and demand some answers about why an unbiased reinvestigation of 9/11 Commission report is such a "conspiracy theory". So comical (yet incredibly sad) how leftist gatekeepers like Cockburn are very aware of the series of lies GW Bush told about WMDs in Iraq, outing CIA agent Val Plame, Downing Street memos, etc.. yet repeatedly insist that the GW Bush regime's 9/11 Commission Report (initially presided over by Henry "Mr. Honesty" Kissinger) MUST be true and anyone who questions this assertion is a "conspiracy theorist nutjob"??

Hmm, if 9/11 truth activists theorize that interior/exterior steel support columns of the WTC cannot simply vaporize into dust and disappear from a fire with limited fuel source and limited temps (what temp does steel melt at?), then we are nutcases? Does the 9/11 Commission's "pancake collapse" theory of melting steel oozing into structural failure explain how steel beams were vaporized into dust? Or the rapid instant collapse as witnessed on film instead of sagging steel of lower floors graaadually giving way as explained by "pancake collapse" theory from melting? Just how does steel in the middle parts of the building melt so quickly into a collapsed condition when so far removed from the flames of the upper floors where the plane landed? Let's see, does heat and fire travel upwards or downwards? Maybe Cockburn believes in the mystical "reverse heat" theory of theoretical physics that occurs when angry hijackers can cross into other dimensions and mentally will fire and heat to travel downwards, only because they are so angry with the U.S. foreign policy? Good thing that ol' Rudy G removed his "9/11 Fire Hat" in a flash and put on his "9/11 Sanitation Engineer Hat" to have all that pesky evidence of melted steel in the WTC rubble carted off to China for a rapid meltdown..

Of course since Mr. Cockburn recieved his degree in theoretical physics we can trust him that it is futile debating the properties of melting steel as this subject should be left to the professional scientists who authored the 9/11 report, and we'll just trust their scientific expertise and not wonder why Rudy "9/11 Firehat Hero" Giuliani had the WTC rubble removed from NYC to China for speedy recycling the day after the towers collapsed? You think ol' Rudy G doesn't know a thing or two about obfuscating evidence??

After all, since all other scientists who work for the GW Bush regime are so breathtakingly honest in their assertions, why would the scientists of the 9/11 Commission even think of not telling the truth??

(sarcasm off)

Here's the deal; the prior knowledge (plenty evidence for suppression of FBI warnings by GW Bush regime), complicity (helping "Bin Laden's Boys" Saudi hijackers achieve goals) and possible involvement (internal detonations following initial fires) of the GW Bush regime in 9/11 attacks on WTC are domestic war crimes, as the illegal invasion occupation of Iraq based on concocted fabrications are foreign war crimes. The GW Bush regime needs to be put on international tribunal for involvement in both these war crimes (tack on prior knowledge of Katrina flooding, FEMA lack of response, etc..) and ANYONE in the media who continues to promote GW Bush regime's government propaganda (9/11, Iraq, Iran, etc..), from Bill O'Reilly to Cockburn should be put on trial as Goebbels was for being willing propaganda ministers. Especially for a supposed leftist like Cockburn to continue this charade about 9/11 is pitiful, flies in the face of logic..

Of course the "blowback" theory promoted by Ward "Li'l Eichmann" Churchill holds true as a motivating factor for initial hijackers intent, though if we compare the results of an uncollapsed WTC towers with upper floors slightly damaged by the fires of the crashing planes that could be repaired to a complete collapse of the WTC buildings vanished from the famous NYC skyline, which scenario would be better fit for the GW Bush regime's propaganda minister Bill O'Reilly promoting several years of "war on terror" that led to the U.S. military occupation of Iraq??

Though i previously enjoyed Ward Churchill's writings on land reclaimation and Native American sovereignty, treaty rights, etc.., his overt hostility towards 9/11 truth activists (9/11 truth movement are all racists who believe dark skinned Muslim Arabs are incapable of hijacking a plane and completely collapsing a skyscraper to the ground, physics be damned!) and Ward's unrelenting support of the GW Bush regime's 9/11 Commission as factual makes me question his true motives. Would indigenous people of North America really choose this individual as their spokesperson if later evidence proved 9/11 left gatekeepers acted in collusion to prevent 9/11 truth (& GW Bush domestic war crimes) from emerging? Why is Ward, so brave is demanding reclamation and restoration of indigenous land & sovereignty, so cowardly in asking questions about 9/11 Commission? What a true disappointment Ward Churchill has become post-9/11..

This 9/11 left gatekeeper phenom in the U.S. is bizarre, one would hope the average leftist could think for themselves, just another sad facet of U.S. politics, too many people led around by false leaders like sheep to the slaughter..

"Researcher Mark Robinowitz devotes much of his vast website to tracking the Left gatekeeper phenomenon. He provides a good summary of the phenomenon of Left denial..

"title: Denial is not a river in Egypt: 'Not See's,' Nazis and the psychological difficulty in facing the truth about 9/11

author: Mark Robinowitz

Both the corporate, mainstream media and most of the foundation-funded "alternative" media have sought to restrict investigative journalism and dissident opinions about the so-called "War on Terror." Since 9/11, the Left media -- including The Nation, Z magazine, The Progressive, Mother Jones, Alternative Radio -- have shied away from examining the pretext for endless war. They have ignored the national "Deception Dollar" campaign, which has printed over three million DD's listing websites of the independent investigations of 911, despite a massive distribution effort across the country, especially at peace rallies.

Worse, several of these institutions have gone on the attack against independent media and journalists who have done excellent work exposing the lies behind the official stories of 9/11. In the spring of 2002, when some of the material documenting official foreknowledge of 9/11 began to surface in the corporate media, The Nation, Z and Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting attacked independent investigators who are piecing together the evidence, instead of helping those who have done the best work."

left gatekeepers exposed @;

and @;

People in the U.S. (left/right) should have themselves a good cry that their government under GW Bush betrayed them both in 9/11 NYC and in Iraq WMDs (and so many other ways) and accept the fact that even middle class "L'il Eichmanns" are expendable in the eyes of the GW Bush regime's greater plans for occupation and invasions of oil producing nations like Iraq. (OH, you though only African-americans in New Orleans were expendable?) Well, since Cockburn is now against global warming "hysteria", maybe the storm surge of Katrina can be explained away as "unfixed levees" and nothing else??

Boo, hoo, hoo, and we thought that only in backwards barbarian countries like Germany could Nazi dictatorships wage covert propaganda wars against their ignorant people! No, not here in the U.S., OUR president GW Bush is only allowed to lie about WMDs in Iraq, he just wouldn't dare lie about 9/11 complicity, prior knowledge and loss of life in the U.S. Nope, not our truthful Boy Scout of a leader!!

Here in the U.S. we also have leftist dissidents who attest to the honesty of the GW Bush regime's 9/11 Commission! These folks are true radicals who would never be decieved by any lies from the U.S. government! These leftist radicals are so certain that GW Bush's 9/11 report is true, they don't even bother discussing it! Furthermore they discredit anyone who wishes to discuss it as crazy, racist and irrelevent! That solves the pesky debates of differing opinions! Democracy is safe and sound in the U.S. for another day!!
