Hemingway and Orwell fought in the Spanish Civil War, but Jonathan Kay couldn’t handle an afternoon in the rain Dallas Hansen
Saturday, February 13th, 2010
At the risk of sounding immodest, Jonathan Kay is writing his Harper Collins book because of me. He tried taking on 9/11 Truthers back in ‘08 and I eviscerated him in an email. Well he showed up for some “field research” back in September and he didn’t seem interested in talking to anyone or seeing anything at all. He seemed more concerned with checking Facebook on his Blackberry and taking phone calls from his wife.
Point is, the guy’s a douche and I called him out on it. I wrote this (see below) to him after he Facebook messaged me asking about my impressions of the WeAreChange conference in 9/11/09. Feel free to use it if you like. And I would be happy to reappear on Alex’s show to talk about this guy and his book.

Hemingway and Orwell fought in the Spanish Civil War, but Jonathan Kay couldn’t handle an afternoon in the rain.

Earlier this month, Union Montréal — mayor Gérald Trembaly's party — put out a press release of the "Top 10 statements made by Richard Bergeron, Party Leader of Projet Montréal," and would-be successor to Mr. Tremblay. The number-one statement involved Mr. Bergeron not being totally convinced man ever walked on the moon. The number two and three statements involve his not being totally convinced the 9/11 attacks weren't "a simple act of state banditry of titanic proportions." I'll concede it's tough to rank the lunacy of these two propositions, but I think I'd have reversed them.
As Michèle Ouimet notes in an astonishing interview/article in La Presse, Mr. Bergeron suggested in 2005 that the plane crashes at the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania were nothing but "a macabre farce" — a pretext to "seize, once and for all, all the oil reserves in the Persian Gulf."
Russia Today gives favorable coverage to the 9/11/09 march through Manhattan's Financial District.
"The eighth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks have given US activists another opportunity to call on the US government to launch a new investigation into the tragedy."
Chris Hannah, frontman for the "anarchist," "anti-authoritarian," and "politically conscious" punk rock group Propagandhi, has consistently refused to address the issue of Bush administration culpability in the 9/11 attacks.
In May, 2007, as an organizer for Winnipeg's three-day series of 9/11 events--including presentations by Richard Gage and Barrie Zwicker--I confronted Chris as to why he and his band haven't made any statements or made a stand regarding the official story of the 9/11 attacks. As a world-renowned, politically themed punk rock band, Propagandhi, one would think, ought to be concerned, or at the very least curious, about the increasing skepticism toward the Official Conspiracy Theory and the rising interest in the controlled demolition hypothesis.
All three advertised public 9/11 Truth events in Winnipeg were filled to capacity on May 29 & 30. Richard Gage, AIA, Architect, took a crowd of over 200 through a Power Point presentation of solid evidence that the collapses of WTC 1, 2 & 7 could only have been the result of controlled demolition. Media critic, author, and documentary producer Barrie Zwicker presented the case that the media have been negligent in reporting about the 9/11 Truth movement. Questions from the audience found answers from both speakers. Even campus police were in attendance, listening.
Next we rushed back downtown to the historic Hotel Fort Garry, where Mr. Gage would present again to an audience of 300 at the magnificent Provencher Ballroom. The audience included several architect and a smattering of engineers, as well as some police, firefighters, and various professionals. At the end of Mr. Gage's presentation he polled the audience to see who now believed in the controlled demolition theory; nearly everyone raised a hand. Upon all chairs at this and each event we laid manila envelopes containing a copy of the 9/11 Mysteries DVD plus the "11 Remarkable Facts About 9/11" flashcard, and a collection of print articles, including (former) Winnipeg Sun editor John Gleeson's well-known recent column, "Scholars debate 9/11 findings." The Hotel Fort Garry Audience also received a data CD containing the recently released WTC blueprints.

9/11 an 'inside job'?
Controlled demolition, claims California architect
Conspiracy buffs are in for a big treat.
California architect Richard Gage will be in Winnipeg this week to offer his explanation of why the World Trade Centre towers collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001.
Gage has become a leading figure of the so-called 9/11 truth movement, an informal campaign from people all over the world who challenge official accounts of what happened that day.
He argues that a deliberate, controlled demolition using explosive devices is what really destroyed the twin towers that day, along with another skyscraper known as WTC 7 or Building 7. Speaking to Sun Media from his Bay Area home this weekend, Gage said few people are even aware of the third building.
