Progressive sites in denial and funding drives - a possible tactic

I subscribe to a few sites that routinely ask for money. Others post the appeals on their sites. I can't help fund them all, and have decided to help only those supportive of 9/11 Truth, which is not very many of the general progressive and anti-war sites. Others have suggested reasons for this denial, and I won't repeat the material.

Today, I sent the following reply (below) to a site owner. I don't know if this will be effective, or counter productive, but obviously I hope that it will be the former.

The text of the letter is here:

You ask for money. I am not interested in supporting any group in serious 9/11 denial. I get too many appeals for assistance from sites such as your own, excellent sites, but limited in the range of discourse they will tolerate.

Do you do any coverage of the 9/11 Truth movement, that is supportive of the core areas of agreement amongst 9/11 Truth advocates? If so, do you have a few links to article in your site?

Although I generally like your articles, and sometimes link to them from my blog, I am only supporting financially those blogs that are part of the mainstream 9/11 Truth movement. Yes, there is a mainstream activist body of opinion on the issues - not unanimity, but general agreement.

I have met some of the more significant activists in the movement, and I don't consider them to be either mentally unstable, nor lacking in intellectual rigor. I realize that you have not made this claim, but many other "progressives" have. I also believe these activists to be generally correct, although undoubtedly wrong in some of the details. All of of are wrong in the details on almost all significant issues, much of the time.

The scientific evidence that towers one and two were exploded into dust using very high temperature explosives is overwhelming. The evidence that tower seven was brought down by controlled demolition is equally compelling. See for instance:

* Architects and Engineers for 9 11 Truth http://ae911truth.org/ : ... Architects & Engineers who have joined AE911Truth.org in calling upon Congress for a new truly independent investigation into the "collapses" of the WTC Twin Towers and Building 7 - requesting a specific examination for controlled demolition with explosives. ... Take a stand for Truth and join us!

There are almost certainly government agents of disinformation as well. They create dissension, sow distrust, and attempt at all times to make the movement look silly. This is true of any movement opposing a government, as I am sure that you know from your readings.

So, if you have in the past run good and supportive articles on 9/11 Truth, then I will probably ship you a few bucks. There are so many appeals, and so many generally worthy sites, that I can only assist a small percentage.

Good letter, but you still

Good letter ,but you still shouldn't ignore the possible reasons for the peace movement to ignore the one issue that brings peace the fastest, 9/11.

Could it be possible that the peace movement was set up and organized by war mongers an funded by war mongers and dupes who donate money?
It makes perfect sense, you create a controlled opposition ! So they have to ignore 9/11 because it endangers the continuation of war and the continuation of the peace movement itself !
(when the peace movement never touches issues that could bring peace they can exist forever !)

When somebody sends you a funds request

Just slip a deception dollar in the envelope and send it back.

That about says it all.

Can I scan one and enclose

Can I scan one and enclose it in an email ?
The cost of a envelope, 41 cent stamp and having to locate one of the remaining mailboxes makes your suggestion valueless.

Not if it's a pre-paid envelope...

and you go near a mailbox now and then

Best wishes

Everyone!

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

I stand corrected, Thanks

I stand corrected, Thanks

I stopped sending money to United for Peace and Justice

I stopped sending money to United for Peace and Justice for similar reasons. Rather than accusing them of being agents of disinfo or being abrasive, I simply stated to them my reasons briefly in an email.

Here is my letter:

"Hi. I would like to cancel my monthly donation of $6.00 to UFPJ. I've come to the realization that in general the 9/11 Truth movement seems to have a much better grasp of the situation we find ourselves in at present and has the courage to speak out about what should be obvious. I say this as someone who didn't look into things deeply until about a year ago when I decided to go where most on the left are hesitant or unwilling to go. So while I criticize, I also understand the barriers we all construct in our minds to blot out the awful truths that should be readily apparent were it not for our own remarkable ability to delude ourselves. In many ways, I think most people are acting in a way similar to the citizens of 1930s Germany, knowing in their hearts something was terribly wrong, but not having the courage or desire to speak out about what was really happening. And the organizations that are really speaking out about the reality of the situation - namely the 9/11 Truth organizations (Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth being one than stands out in my mind right now www.ae911truth.org) - are I believe more deserving of my money at this time. I wish you the best."

You are describing a boycott

I like the idea of boycotting any and all organizations that refuse to speak the truth or actively deny the truth. I no longer send money to my local NPR station for that matter. I now only support my local Pacifica stations (KPFK). I love the idea of including deception dollars into all correspondence. it will be opened by people that may yet need some convincing. Also you can add stamped messages on currency or checks as well. Can we get checks printed up with "9-11 was an inside job"?

Lets not forget that the boycott is effective (non-violent) way to send messages to the power structure. let them know you aren't buying what they sell because you don't like their "head-in-the-sand" world view.

Co-opted peace movement?

I would be amazed if government agents had not penetrated the peace movement. How successful have they been? Let me turn that around: How successful has the peace movement been?

In truth, we can't know the answers, only look at possible scenarios and assess probabilities.

I used to send money to

I used to send money to antiwar.com. Not anymore. Their star writer, Justin Raimondo, is very talented. But when he wrote in a column on 9/11/06 that the idea that the WTC towers were brought down by controlled demolition is "daffy," that was it for me. Justin also incessantly reminds his leaders of the looming threat of al-Qaeda, and that Osama "is still out there...."

Now I send that money to Paul Thompson at cooperativeresearch.com.

Election Fraud Perpetuates Causes

Would we need so many progressive lobbying organizations without election "engineering?" Would environmental org.s need so much funding if our votes were effective?
