CNN host Glen Beck viciously attacked the 9/11 truth movement
last night on his Headline Prime show, describing the
whole movement as "insane" and branding 9/11 activists
as "dangerous anarchists".
Beck singled out 9/11 truthers in a segment in response
to the infiltration of Real Time with Bill Maher by We
Are Change protesters last week.
In a piece that we would normally associate with
the "fair and balanced" Fox News, Beck featured two
guests who BOTH argued against 9/11 truth, as well as throwing
in his own two cents.
"These truthers are exactly the kind of people
who want to rock this nation's foundation, tear us apart and plant
the seeds of dissatisfaction in all of us" Beck huffed and
puffed while introducing his yes men.
At one point Beck even suggested that the 9/11 truth
movement is "the kind of groupa Timothy McVeigh would come from", insinuating the
movement is intent on violence.

In response his guest, Michael
Shermer, the founding member of "The Skeptics
Society", a debunking body that is actually skeptical of
nothing and just defends the official line on most subjects, ludicrously
frothed "Yeah that's right, that's what makes it a little
bit scary, somebody that would infiltrate a talk show like Bill
Maher's show and then heckle him during the show, that's getting
out there a little bit, that's not just posting things on the
internet for fun to see what happens, but actually going down
there to do something."

beginning of the video which was obviously posted by a neocon
In thousands of 9/11 protests over the course of
the last six years, not one person has been arrested for violent
conduct. To cart blanche suggest that the truth movement is dangerous,
"a threat to children" and intent on violence is extremely
inflammatory and indicates just how afraid of investigating and
debating the facts people like Glen Beck actually are.
The core of the 9/11 truth movement is composed
of highly educated and progressive individuals who are strictly
opposed to violence and are intent on protecting a free and peaceful
society which has been under dire threat ever since the attacks
of 9/11 and the ensuing cover up.
Furthermore the movement represents the very antithesis
of anarchism in that it is actively seeking to restore and protect
our traditional form of government which has been usurped by an
unaccountable cabal that continues to operate outside of Constitutional
law and with little restraint using 9/11 as justification.
Naturally, Beck wheeled out the ever present James
Meigs, whitewasher-in-chief at the military-industrial complex
rag Popular Mechanics, which is owned by Hearst Publishing,
the progenitor of the term "yellow journalism".
Meigs is of course exactly the right man to dismiss
claims of a controlled demolition on 9/11 given that he has a
background in being a movie critic. Meanwhile experts
in controlled demolition are visibly shaken when
shown videos of building 7 and told that it came down on 9/11.
Meigs' assertions have been thoroughly debunked,
even by the bodies investigating the collapses of all three buildings.
Meigs still regularly
refers to the pancaking theory when describing the
collapse of the twin towers, to explain how they collapsed without
resistance, despite the fact that the theory was debunked
by NIST itself after their study found that, "This
type of assembly (the WTC steel) was capable of sustaining a large
gravity load, without collapsing for a substantial period of time
relative to the duration of the fires in any given location on
It also violates the fundamental law of physics and the Law of
Conservation of Momentum, as Professor Steven Jones outlines in
recently that it is STILL unable to provide an explanation
for the total collapse of the twin towers, yet Mr Meigs seems
assured, spending much of his time wailing about how truthers
"do not fact check".
Meigs also maintains that building 7 was severely damaged and
ultimately felled by fires caused by falling debris from the towers,
even though there is no evidence supporting this and NIST has
been left with the only option but to probe
whether the building was demolished on purpose.
Beck and his guests also maintain that the WTC "buildings",
thus including the one which was not hit by a plane, did not collapse
from the bottom down. Anybody who watches the collapse of 7 can
see that it falls from the bottom down, yet Beck and co. accuse
others of ignoring the facts to fit their own agenda!

Beck also bizarrely suggests that 12 percent of
people polled believe that the government was involved in 9/11
when the actual numbers are much higher, with some polls suggesting
The only accurate statement Beck makes is in suggesting
that the U.S. government, or factions within it, were not competent
enough to pull off 9/11 without it being discovered and ending
up all over prime time news. In this he is entirely correct, it
is all over prime time news, as well as prime time entertainment
such as the Bill Maher show.
Finally Beck asked his viewers to back him up on this one by voting
in a poll very fairly entitled Conspiracy Craziness:
Anyone who believes our government could have successfully planned
9/11 is not only giving them too much credit, but they're also
insane. Do you agree or disagree?
Lets take a look at the latest results:
It seems the majority can quite clearly see where
Mr Beck is wrong.
