Smirking Chimp publishes fair "9-11 skeptics" analysis

American Thinker says 9/11 skepticism "extremely dangerous"


by PositronicDave | Dec 3 2006

This just in...'s Michael Lopez-Calderon thinks that people who don't buy the government's line about 9/11 are "extremely dangerous" because they might "undermine our democratic nation's war against the theocratic forces of radical, Jihadi-driven Islam".


You can read the full article here:

It is gatekeepers like Michael Lopez-Calderon who are extremely

dangerous for denying 9/11 truth and enabling our murderous government to continue in their ways!

"Trolls and hobgoblins"

This is a good read, if only to understand the mindset of those we are trying to
reach out to. It also helps the Truth Movement by directing us to the crux of the matter- that conspiracies are indeed possible:

"To believe that something as massive as a conspiracy to bring down enormous buildings, first by staging a passenger plane assault and then following that feat with a perfectly timed, controlled demolition of those same buildings, is to believe in the tooth fairy, trolls, and hobgoblins."

We certainly know about trolls...

This is just

more of the far-right blustering about "you're either with us - or you are with the terrorists" nonsense that the American public has roundly rejected.

A quick look at the American Thinker website today sees headlines like:

"Michael Moore Issues Iraq Withdrawal Fatwa"

Americans just do not go for this sort of crypto-fascist nonsense anymore. Its not effective. And to equate the 9/11 Truth movement's call for ACCOUNTABILITY with "aiding and abetting the enemy" is shear lunacy that the vast majority of americans have soundly rejected.

Americans are tired of lies. Period. Whether you look at Hurricane Katrina or Iraq or the environmental policies of this administration - 9/11 is no different. We have been lied to. And the issue is not and WILL not go away through clever propaganda, dissembling and threats.

For the couple of years

For the couple of years between about '02 and '04, became my main internet messageboard dive, as I was horrified by the overtly fascist nature of the Cheney regime. However I woke up to 911 Truth at the end of '03, and really went down the rabbit hole from there.

So I was routinely posting developing 911 Truth news at SmirkingChimp. There was a small cabal of other Truthers there, and there was a small cabal of apologists for the government's 911 story, principally "BoloBoffin" (who was also clandestinely a board moderator) and "Cerwiller". The apologists seemed to have all day to defend the The Big Lie.. they were persistent, and given the time they were devoting to their campaign of discrediting the "911 CT Nuts" it was clear they had something more invested in promoting The Big Lie than met the eye.

Well another notable pattern as SC was the absence of any balanced discussion of matters Israeli. There was an overlapping cabal of, what I came to call ADL/AIPAC whips there who lay in wait to pull the usual anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Holocaust denier yada yada smears out of their asses towards anyone who posted anything about Israel which was less than flattering. And the SC moderators were friendly towards these resident thought crime cops, routinely locking/deleting threads where one of the ADL/AIPAC whips had flung the hollow anti-Semitic smear towards another post.

In Summer '04 SC banned me and hundreds of others who were posting 911 Truth news and stirring discussion of 911 Truth. Their messageboards became a ghost town after their big purge of the thought criminals. Long story short, I concluded that SC (with their domain name registered just a day apart from was a Zionist Left Gatekeeping entity. They encourage you to vent your frustrations about CheneyCo and Republicans; and direct your energies towards getting DEMOCRATS elected. Good grief. Of course this will change nothing, and they know it, because Israel owns both parties.

As to SC's censoring 911 Truth discussion, well Netanyahu was correct when he said right after 911 that it's "GOOD FOR ISRAEL".

I chuckle now every time I stroll by that Zionist controlled opposition site AKA SmirkingChimp, and they have their banner up asking for donations... oh how they're fighting the good fight with barely enough to pay the electric bill.... AS IF !!!!! You may as well just donate straight to AIPAC and cut out the middle man. SmirkingChimp is a regular internet beacon of deception, and I pity those dupes who hang out there thinking they're being productive somehow.

I voluntarily cancelled my

I voluntarily cancelled my membership to SC after they pulled a decent 9/11 blog article. Hadn't revisited in four or so months until I did so to read positronic Dave's article. I read it pretty quickly but saw nothing with which I disagreed and it did get in good comments about 9/11. So go figure, you know.

I did get kicked off of DU after 700+ posts and all I can say is thank god. Left wing gatekeepers are, to my mind, traitors to the US. Hear that Amato? Whereas the right wing are simply incredibly ignorant, deluded and/or stupid. Or all three....

"There are none so hoplessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free" (Goethe)..... a paraphrase from V: Cast aside the illusions. Only when you are finally hopeless can you truly be free.

Jose Padilla: Three-and-a-half-years as an enemy combatant!

I really want to know what, if any, evidence they have against this guy to keep his like this! He may well be just a pawn for Bush's "war on terra" bullshit.

The Smirking Chimp...

Is a gutless place for 9/11 skepticism.

Go ahead and set up an account there, and post a 9/11 skepticism story of any flavor and see what happens.

Reprehensor, If you've used


If you've used that handle consistently then we go back years at SC, and even that little back woods watering hole disaffecteddems. On Aug 4th I posted the following to SC under a brand new profile, and boloNanny locked it within a few mins.... it appeared exactly as you see this post at DD:

then the first reply tells what happened next. BoloNanny not only locked the thread with a lame explanation, he also deleted all the content of the opening post, so that SC's carefully whipped flock could not be contaminated by it.

That's me.

Who else would use such a dorky handle?

Long time no see, Tom. Register your handle and fire away. If you do a search for "book review" here, you'll see what I've been up to.

(edit: "book review" singular, without the quotation marks)
