Glen Beck and the Absurd

Robert Brunner |

Wasting no time exploiting tragedy and exercising the absurd, Glenn Beck claims “early reports” are that Holocaust Museum shooter James Von Brunn is a hero to the 9/11 truth movement.

Appearing with Beck is “former CIA Operative” Mike Baker. Baker is now CEO of Dilligence LLC, a company with contracts in Iraq, clients like the World Bank and ties to the now defunct Bush administration.

Baker also serves as a partner at Classified Trash, a film and television production company.

One might begin to wonder if Baker is along for more than just the ride and reinforcement of propaganda. One might wonder the outright influence Baker has on Becks show or even Fox News as a whole.

Fair and balanced? Can the psychological warfare of propaganda be anymore blatant?

The one time decorated World War II veteran von Brunn unfortunately seemed to have grown increasingly deranged. By Becks own logic von Brunn would be a hero to World War Veterans as well, No? Yesterday’s horrific actions of James von Brunn are not heroic or representative of World War veterans or those in the 9/11 Truth Movement, in fact they are a direct contradiction to its declaration.

If only Beck could spend as much time honing his journalistic integrity and critical thinking as his tactics of slander and demonization. One critically thinking might have either given a source or vetted this information of “early reports” which Beck himself “didn’t know were true”. Clearly this is a calculated effort by Beck and Fox News to lump in a deranged Von Brunn with the growing professional body of those who question the official story of 9/11. “Nearly two-thirds of Americans think it is possible that some federal officials had specific warnings of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, but chose to ignore those warnings.”

This includes Congressmen, Military professionals, Physicists , Scholars, Architects, Engineers, Firefighters, Lawyers Pilots, Veterans, the list goes on.

Learning from documented co-opted peace movements of the past, many truth groups have adopted a code of conduct where discrimination, violence and hate are not an acceptable means. Any members - past, present or future - who advocate or demonstrate anything other than legal, peaceful, non-violent demonstrations and actions are disassociated. Hate is not part of the language. The same can not be said for Beck

and his Fox News underlings some who have even called for the death of those who question the official story of 9/11, argueably contracting for murder, a criminal matter that manages to be ignored.

9/11 Truth has always been a peaceful movement and by its nature, truth leads to peace. Satyagraha (devotion to truth) founded upon ahimsa (total non-violence), simply to speak the truth and advocate others to do the same are the principles pioneered by what may be a true hero of the 9/11 truth movement, Mohandas Gandhi on ironically another September 11th, in Johannesburg, 1906.

Since 2001, thousands of protests have taken place across the globe, organized by citizens who have legitimate unanswered questions, not one of these protests have resulted in violence. The sweeping general statements are meant to have a desired chilling effect of intimidation, to keep those that have not looked yet from looking, and those who are curious, timid. Guilt by association, its not working anymore Glen.

Our government has given the people to be our history a flawed report based on conflicting government agencies along with conflicting data, think-tanks, compartmentalization, classification, closed doors, gag orders, torture and preemptive wars. The growing 9/11 truth movement relies on research of law-abiding citizens, professional groups, community meet-ups, open-source, peer reviews and transparency.

The peaceful movement speaks for itself, by its actions.

No, Glenn the Truth Movement is not trying to “destroy America” by calling for a new investigation with subpoena power and transparency, we are trying to restore it.

I think you make good

I think you make good mention of the so-called "former" CIA agent appearing with Beck during his slandering of the 9-11 Truth movement, however, I think you unintentionally omitted the glaring example of the CIA Mockingbird Project that appeared right before our eyes.

I can't imagine anything so blatant as having a CIA operative (whether he was field agent or a desk analyst) for a what could only be described as a criminal act by von Brunn. Just where do they get these former CIA agents to appear in studio so suddenly? Was this former agent just passing through handing off the Company's daily talking points? Or was he just on a tour of the place and got lost.

Mockingbird never ended.
