Taibbi Encore!

Matt Taibbi, whose terrific piece on the 9-11 Deniers in Rolling Stone apparently got them angry, is back with another article on Alternet drawing comparisons to the OKC bombing conspiracy nutbars:

Over a month after I first wrote a column slamming the 9/11 Truth movement, I continue to get hate mail in massive quantities. A group of Truthers even picketed my office, and I'm still picking food particles out of my scarf after an incident in which the movement's house lunatic, a wild-eyed German blogger named Nico Haupt, tried to goad me into slugging him in a West Side diner.

"Go ahead, heet me, then I haf beeg story!" he roared, scream-spitting half-digested detritus in my face.

Of course I didn't hit him -- nothing in the world is more ridiculous than two writers fighting in a restaurant. If you're surprised that I would call someone who spit food on my lap a fellow writer, don't be. As I subsequently found out, Haupt is a literary juggernaut, one of the most voluble bloggers on the planet earth. His internet entries read like a MySpace mixture of MTV's Real World meets Che's Congo Diaries, only on meth and in a German accent.


Heheh. I kind of root for Nico, in the same way that I rooted for the New York Mets back in the 1960s. He seems to be the 9-11 Denier that even the Deniers find nutty.

Oh man, I was going to post this one. Showing me up... that's it, you are fired!

after firing Pat, you could delete the post, repost it as your own, and pretend nothing ever happened. I know it's happened somewhere else, but I can't think of it at the moment....

I just spent 5 minutes reading the whiney comment regarding his article.

I would really like it if they modified their mantra to "We Want To Hear What We Want To Hear!" Instead of "We Want The Truth"

My favorite line from the article:

And what evidence could possibly exist that would be so unwieldy that it would require the destruction of an entire building to be rid of? What, did the CIA carve its 9/11 plans in a 7,000-pound slab of New Hampshire granite in the WTC-7 basement? Were they doodled on the CIA bathroom stalls? Here I sit, broken-hearted. Came to shit, but only... planned controlled demolition of the World Trade Center!

Yeah, Jujig, that was my laugh out loud moment too!

I'm looking forward to his future work on the 9/11 truth. Man, those comments that repeat the same thing over and over and over again probably encourage him to write about it. It's pretty funny to watch all those twoofers get even crazier than they've already shown.

"WE'RE NOT CRAZY! WE'RE NOT CRAZY!"

As they started foaming at the mouth, and presenting their theories on why a high power particle accelerator on the (former) planet Pluto unleashed a black hole underneath the WTC (Hence all the explosions heard!), they insisted they weren't crazy.

Well, that makes some sense to me. See, Pluto was considered a plantet sometime in the 70s, roughly when the first George Bush was in charge of the CIA and coming up with Operation Southwoods, which would turn out to be 9-11. After 9-11, everyone wanted to know why Pluto's course had changed in our solar system. Well, a high power particle accelerator would have had more than enough force to push Pluto's orbit and make it a ellipse rather than a perfect circle, like all other planet's orbits. This is proof! I'm convinced!


Seriously, does that sound anymore crazy than some of these conspiracies?
