My New Hero--Paul Isaac, Jr.
An auxiliary fireman in New York City, he gets into Avery and company's faces in Loose Change Extra Footage.
The Loose Change producers went to Ground Zero on September 11, 2005, to "pay their respects". Of course, what they really wanted to do was stir up trouble, and Paul Isaac, Jr., recognized that immediately.
The video begins with the producers entering the subway. We see them taping up flyers for Loose Change.
They then hop a train and take it towards the WTC. At each stop they hop off and quickly tape up another flyer or two, then dash back onto the subway. No kidding, we see this eight times. Maybe that explains why Dylan Avery was turned down for Purchase College's film program?
Paul Isaac gets his starring role from about 6:48 to about 12:00.
He points out that the Loose Change guys are just asking for trouble. "Who feels that this behavior is inappropriate for a public memorial, for 3000 people, who were killed?"
Note as well, that one of Avery's buddies is caught in an outright lie at about 8:52, claiming "I'm not with these people." This claim is undercut by the fact that he's been with Avery since they entered the subway. Here's a picture of their argument (9:53):
The liar (who bears a remarkable resemblance to Jason Bermas) is at the left, Avery is next to him. Not sure who the young woman is. Isaac is at the right in uniform. We get another lie from the liar at 10:11, when he claims, "I don't know one person here. Not one person." Of course at 11:54 the liar's telling people that the movie is free, and to please come.
Mr Isaac, we salute you!
Update: Check out this nutty post supposedly on Isaac.
On Monday, October 24, 2005 at 9:23 PM EST, Victor and I received a call on our home phone. The caller was male, did not identify himself, and proceeded to say the following:
“This message is for Victor Thorn and Lisa Guliani. We met at Ground Zero on 9-11 and you ran a story on it the next day on your website. Well, we have a videotape that will bury your story, so I think you’d better retract that article very quickly or you will face a libel suit. The videotape we have refutes the version of what is portrayed on your website. God bless you both...see you next year at Ground Zero.”
The caller then hung up the phone. After our movie was over, we checked the answering machine and listened to the call. The man’s tone of voice was very sarcastic and menacing.
Yeah, especially that part about God bless you both, right?
