Open Letter to Markos Moulitsas Zúniga of dailykos.com
I don't normally do this, and initially, I had planned on writing you a long and nasty email because of your policy of censorship at your website. It angers me that people like you, not unlike the mainstream media in America, decide what people read and what they don't. You will talk and write about how the media in America is controlled by unseen hands, or biased toward the right, yet you practice the same brand of defacto censorship, most notably surrounding the events of September 11th, 2001.
I had heard about left gate keepers like you, who either knowingly or unknowingly keep information behind locked gates. I have even heard the buzz about your particular website, however, I never visited it until today after I heard of more blatant censorship there with regards to important 9-11 related information. I refer specifically to this article posted at 911blogger.com.
Certainly, you have the right to post what you like at your site. However, at some point, and especially when sites become successful, as you boast about here, you have a duty to protect free speech on an open forum. Unless someone is "flaming" others or otherwise causing trouble, what makes you think that articulate sensible people shouldn't have the right to openly post a forum, which is there exactly for such purposes? You are exactly like those you pretend to loathe so much. Especially considering the dire circumstances we find ourselves in here in America. When will people like you realize that everything that we despise about the Bush administration sprung forth from 9-11-01....none of it would have been possible if not for 9-11. And yet you continually keep the gate locked. You are either extremely naive, or part of a bought and paid for "controlled opposition". If you truly are not the latter and know that in your heart, I beg you to reconsider your stance on this 9-11 censorship policy. There is much at stake and very little time.
I urge you to begin by examining the issue of the 9-11 dust and then doing the right thing by giving this issue much needed exposure. Not one person in the country, not even Markos Moulitsas Zúniga, can point to this issue and shout "Conspiracy Theory!" This is conspiracy fact, all laid out in black and white, sometimes in the EPA's own words, and now, 5 1/2 years later, people are starting to die. I refer you to an article published just today in the New York Post.
We've been lied to about every single issue surrounding the events of September 11th, and the issue of the 9-11 dust and how they have treated the hero's who rushed to ground zero to help is just one more in the huge pile of examples of 9-11 related bullshit given to us by our government. The resulting media cover-up is telling as well. You don't even have to read between the lines here. The proof is in the pudding, as they say.
As previously mentioned, I urge you to give this the coverage it deserves, and while I don't expect you to use them at your site, you might want to hear the 3 interviews I did with people very close to this issue, including 9-11 first responder John Feal. You can find this series of interviews at a special page on my website.
In closing, I would just reiterate to you that it is your duty to protect free speech on an open forum. Respectful individuals, should not be banned just because you decide (are you the "Decider" too?) that you disagree with what they are saying. It is also your duty to actually report on 9-11 related fraud and lies. A good place to start is by giving the 9-11 dust the much needed attention that it deserves.
