Does anyone really believe "George Bush demolished the towers"?
I love how all other rappers are fake, except the rapper rapping on the track about how all other rappers are fake. He's the only real rapper, even if another rapper raps about how all other rappers are fake.
Oh yeah, and Hip Hop's dead.

"Does anyone really believe "George Bush demolished the towers"?"
Nah. Although a lot of people just use "Bush" as shorthand for "the criminal handlers who control Bush from behind the scenes".
I see the world for what it is, beyond the white and the black
The way the government downplays historical facts
'Cause the United States sponsored the rise of the 3rd Reich
Just like the CIA trained terrorists to the fight
Build bombs and sneak box cutters onto a flight
When I was a child, the Devil himself bought me a mic
But I refused the offer, 'cause God sent me to strike
With skills unused like fallopian tubes on a dyke
My words'll expose George Bush and Bin Laden
As two separate parts of the same seven headed dragon
And you can't fathom the truth, so you don't hear me
You think illuminati's just a fucking conspiracy theory?
That's why Conservative racists are all runnin' shit
And your phone is tapped by the Federal Government
So I'm jammin' frequencies in ya brain when you speak to me
Technique will rip a rapper to pieces indecently
Pack weapons illegally, because I'm never hesitant
Sniper scoping a commission controlling the president
Father, forgive them, for they don't know right from wrong
The truth will set you free, written down in this song
And the song has the Cause of Death written in code
The Word of God brought to life, that'll save ya soul..
Save ya soul motherfucker...save ya soul..
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I hacked the Pentagon for self-incriminating evidence
Of Republican manufactured white powder pestilence
Marines Corps. flack vest, with the guns and ammo
Spittin' bars like a demon stuck inside a piano
Turn a Sambo into a soldier with just one line
Now here's the truth about the system that'll fuck up your mind
They gave Al Queda 6 billion dollars in 1989 to 1992
And now the last chapters of Revelations are coming true
And I know a lot of people find it hard to swallow this
Because subliminal bigotry makes you hate my politics
But you act like America wouldn't destroy two buildings
In a country that was sponsoring bombs dropped on our children
I was watching the Towers, and though I wasn't the closest
I saw them crumble to the Earth like they was full of explosives
And they thought nobody noticed the news report that they did
About the bombs planted on the George Washington bridge
Four Non-Arabs arrested during the emergency
And then it disappeared from the news permanently
They dubbed a tape of Osama, and they said it was proof
"Jealous of our freedom," I can't believe you bought that excuse
Rocking a motherfucking flag don't make you a hero
Word to Ground Zero
The Devil crept into Heaven, God overslept on the 7th
The New World Order was born on September 11
And just so Conservatives don't take it to heart
I don't think Bush did it, 'cause he isn't that smart
He's just a stupid puppet taking orders on his cell phone
From the same people that sabotaged Senator Wellstone
The military industry got it poppin' and lockin'
Looking for a way to justify the Wolfowitz Doctrine
And as a matter of fact, Rumsfeld, now that I think back
Without 9/11, you couldn't have a war in Iraq
Or a Defense budget of world conquest proportions
Kill freedom of speech and revoke the right to abortions
Tax cut extortion, a blessing to the wealthy and wicked
But you still have to answer to the Armageddon you scripted
And Dick Cheney, you fucking leech, tell them your plans
About building your pipelines through Afghanistan
And how Israeli troops trained the Taliban in Pakistan
You might have some house niggas fooled, but I understand
Colonialism is sponsored by corporations
That's why Halliburton gets paid to rebuild nations
Tell me the truth, I don't scare into paralysis
I know the CIA saw Bin Laden on dialysis
In '98 when he was Top Ten for the FBI
Government ties is really why the Government lies
Read it yourself instead of asking the Government why
'Cause then the Cause of Death will cause the propaganda to die..
DHS, if the guy who wrote those lyrics wants to call all other rappers fake then i say let him and i would tend to agree. hip hop is indeed dead but it isnt the fault of a guy like Immortal Technique. as far as the "Bush blew up the towers" line, its kind of hard to fit something like "the criminal elements connected to Bush/Cheney and/or possibly Mossad blew up the towers as part of a larger plot etc." into a song. doesnt exactly rhyme too well(but notice how I.T. explicitly says-"I don't think Bush did it, 'cause he isn't that smart
He's just a stupid puppet") . good for I.T. for continuing to put 9/11 truth into peoples minds. how can you not appreciate that?
"The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media." ~ William Colby, Former Director, CIA
You're quoting a different song. Cause of Death is not the topic of this thread, and in the song that is the topic of this thread the other rapper says "George Bush demolished the towers".
The reason I question it is because this is the top story of the "News" section of 911blogger.com
that said, it sounds like we're promoting the message in this song, and the only 911 related comment in the song is "George Bush demolished the towers".
As for the first reply to me, if saying "Bush" is a shorthand for "the criminal elements", then what about in Cause of Death when IT says "I don't think Bush did it, because he isn't that smart"? We can't pick and choose when Bush means the Bush administration and when Bush means George Bush.
Why is this song top story in the news section? This belongs on the blog page in my opinion.
Chris, What song is that?
“No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”
-- President James Madison
its called "Cause of Death" and its from his second album. to DHS, i guess some people just cant win huh? the guy is putting 9/11 truth out there again. thats a good thing. best not to overanalyze it and take shots at somebody whos trying to help. and saying "Bush" is less about fingering Bush personally for the rigging of the towers and more about just getting 9/11 truth out there. its just a rap song.
I couldnt agree more! Thanks for the info on that song.
Immortal Technique blows
felipe coronel has it figured out as well as anybody. listen to revolutionary vol 2. better respect the number of people this man will/does relate to and influence. -soldier supporter
Boot Camp Click www.duckdown.com who are guests on this song are very popular in the rap underground since over ten years.
I propose we send all these rappers all the most important info we got on 911.
Send info on 9/11 to Boot Camp Click (Who are guests on this song) :
Boot Camp Click

I have heard them since '93 , there's a very good chance they will put some of that info in their songs.
Find me a Rapper with more balls than Immortal Technique.... Any takers? Nope didn't think so. Mos Def and Em share second place....
If IT had any balls he wouldn't have two giant lumps of flesh 'watching his back' on stage and offstage while he makes threats against leader(s) in this movement behind their back...IT is a fake / poser and he supports illegal immigration. I can't believe how so many people in this movement fall for that fake image and attitude crap. I've never seen IT take action against the 9/11 perpetrators where a spotlight of attention isn't involved.
Remo Conscious, on the other hand (as well as many other independant artists in this movement) is out there on the streets actually DOING SOMETHING, unlike this carpetbagger invader who names himself after video games...Lame.
You got to be kidding me man. Do you even know who immortal technique is? That brother is fighting for the same thing everyone else on this blog is. He has been promoting 9/11 truth probably before you even had an idea about it. Revolutionary Vol. 2 talks about 9/11, the military industrial complex, propaganda, etc. He knows his stuff and is more hard then you will ever be.
At Rock the Bells (www.rockthebells.net) this weekend, Technique and his crew laid down the track "Bin Laden Remix" in front of 40,000 people. If you don't know that song, look it up. That song is 9/11 truth. Technique is not some "poser" - that man is real. He is taking the fight to the streets. And those guys you talk about "watching his back" do that because Technique watches their back.
Think about it: would any rapper want to capitialize on a movement like this in an attempt to sell records? no. So many people still don't believe the truth, so why would it make sense to rap about what others deem to be absurdities? It doesn't, use some logic there bud.
If you listened to Technique a little more you would understand his stance on things like compromising his beliefs to sell records. The movement should be blessed to have someone like him.
"In the beginning of a change the Patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot." - Mark Twain
What are you, IT's publicist ?
I don't appreciate your condescending tactics and ignorant arrogance in defending that poser.
I've known about 9/11 truth since 2002 and you don't know a damn thing about me or what I've done to help the 9/11 truth movement, but you can rest assured I've passed out a helluva lot more flyers and DVD's than that wannabee bad boy has.
Enjoy your stupid pre programmed music with an 'attitude'.
Are you kidding me?! IT BRAGS about how many records he sells in interviews. OF COURSE HE's CAPITALIZING ON THE 9/11 TRUTH MOVEMENT...ARE YOU THAT NAIVE MAN?!
I WAS THERE. I SAW HOW THAT POSER WOULD SHOW UP FIVE MINUTES BEFORE HIS BULLHORN MOMENT THEN LEAVE RIGHT AFTERWARDS. IT IS A FRAUD AND YOU ARE SUPPORTING THAT SO CALLED 'HARD' FAKE ATTITUDE / IMAGE.
WHY DOESN'T IT JOIN CHANGE OR NY911TRUTH OUT ON THE STREETS EVERY WEEK HUH?
AT LEAST A COUPLE TIMES A YEAR.....WHY?
Please reply to JR over here if you wish:
That's what the truthaction.org board is for: draggin' it out.
I really don't know much about IT except for hearing a couple songs. JR - Who did he make threats against in the movement?
IT made a threat against Alex Jones at the 9/10/2006 event at Cooper Hall in NYC. IT threatened to "take Alex Jones' ass off the stage" if Jones mentioned or talked about illegal immigration to the audience that night. How did I find this out? From the very same people that organized the event afterwards that night on the way to the hotel. I don't want to name anyone specific, but several of these guys were talking about it afterwards to myself and others in our group on our way back to their hotel.
Now, personally I think IT is talented and some of his songs are good, but he definitely does not deserve to be praised or admired as the voice of this movement especially when he shoots his mouth off like a little punk to other leaders and I never saw him show up to any of the NY911Truth street actions from '05 to '06 in NYC while the rest of us froze our butts off and endured scorn and harassment by neo cons and cops. IT claims he spends all his time in the studio, but come on man, in between pushing those buttons (instead of actually playing an instrument) and staring at himself in the mirror, he certainly could have come out and supported us in the field of info battle once in a blue moon...Besides, what kind of an artist hates sharing the stage with other acts/artists ? A Deuschebag, that's who.
Please continue the discussion over here:
you're right, he should do huge sellout shows with no bodyguards and security. That's really smart.
