Allahu Akhbar

The soon-to-be-unemployed Kevin Barrett will now be taking over Jim Fetzer's time slot on paranoia radio, titled bizarrely "Truth Jihad".

Truth Jihad Radio (Starts 11/18/06)
Host: Kevin Barrett Ph.D. Time: Saturday 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

According to his last radio show Fetzer will now host a daily show on GCN, another fringe network which mostly broadcasts Alex Jones and Jeff Rense. And sorry, I may not have a life, but I am not going to listen to this every day. If anyone happens to catch anything interesting, let us know.

Is there any way to find out what lunatics, er, fruitcakes, er, psychos, er, nutjobs, er, advertisers are advertising on this "program"?

Maybe if we all sent them letters and/or correspondence shaming them into not supporting this crap we can drive it off the air. It worked to get rid of Whoopi Goldberg hawking diet products. I should know - I started it by complaining to the company, and soon a tidal wave started and she was fired.

Won't work, most advertisers on those shows are lunatics themselves. Either that or sane people marketing to lunatics. Las time I listened to one of these shows, they had a guy promoting his book about the JFK assassination, a surplus store selling survival supplies, and a guy marketing "anti-chemtrail inoculation". Really, all you need to do in order to realize the insanity of the 9/11 denial crowd, is listen to the advertisements on their shows.

Don't forget that distinguished journal, "The American Free Press".

A question about the Pentagon damage to be more precise.

According to Scott Adams's book, The Dilbert Principle:

" . . . everybody knows that the general population breaks down this way:

60% People who don't need your product
30% People who have no money
5% People who are nuts
5% People who will buy any damn thing

That leaves a neat ten percent of the population who can be considered likely customers for your product, and that's more than enough to support a business plan. If somebody questions your market projections, simply point out that your target market is "People who are nuts" and "People who will buy any damn thing." Nobody is going to tell you that there aren't enough of those people to go around."


I guess that's about as close as I can get to explaining why some of these nutty media outlets have advertisers.

If you have any general questions, if you post it here, or at the JREF forum, most likely someone can help you too.

Well ok,
Marky shows in his video the hole in the building in the side of the Pentagon.

But now ive seen the next picture, cause i was looking for some info on the exterior damage of the Pentagon, cause i have a discussion somewhere else.

http://911research.wtc7.net/talks/pentagon/docs/impact.jpg

Well now i was just wondering if this view is correct ot not, cause i cant really find a clear picture of the entrance hole made by the plane.

Its a picture made from several pictures.

I know this hole is also big enough for the plane to enter though. I was just wondering if he has seen this picture or not. And what he thinks about it.

There aren't any really good pictures, because of the smoke and firefighting efforts. The best I have found is the one I used for this post. (I added the red lines for emphasis)

pentagon

There is also a detailed engineering report which describes the damage done by the ASCE.

ASCE

Also Purdue University has done a computer recreation of the crash showing this.

Thx for those links, but don't u think thats a very accurate picture from the real damage to the Pentagon?

Or is it faked?

Like i said before, the damaged part is still big enough for a plane to go through. So its not that i went over to the "Dark Side" ;)

 
At 15 November, 2006 14:35, Blogger Alex said...

Jay, what exactly are you asking? If there's a point in your post I'm having trouble parsing it out. Why would that picture be fake?

Regarding advertisers on this program: it should be added that many radio advertisers pay for "ROS", or "Run of Station", rather than sponsor an individual program.

In other words, the advertiser is already paying to run on a station that carries several fringe talk shows. So it's unlikely that Kevin Barrett is going to push them over the edge.

I meant this picture Alex.

http://911research.wtc7.net/talks/pentagon/docs/impact.jpg

I asked is this is fake or not.

Its composed of several pictures. And it shows a different hole size then the one Marky used in his video.

So i was asking id Marky ever saw this picture.

 
At 15 November, 2006 15:28, Blogger Alex said...

Ah. Well, it's obviously fake because it's composed of multiple images. But it more or less accurately shows the damage and the path of the aircraft. There was more damage on the left hand side after the aircraft hit, but the wingtip didn't fully penetrate. The blue area shows the portions which were fully destroyed by the impact.

they should rename GCN. They should call it "Conspiracy Radio".

TAM

GCN = Government Conspiracy Network?

Hmm...

BINGO!...we have a winner...put your markers down...

This in itself is rather harmless...

The chilling fact is the many hate groups also run the current of the truther movement....

When Johny Jihad seeks to recruit a lilly white...it will undoubtably be a truther...

The only commonality these ...er...I'll say it...FREAKS...have..is an underlying hatred of Bush...

Then after induction with a few "truth" videos...this easily moves into hatred of the Govt in general..

After a short time...this expands into hatred of the puppet masters...the "globalist bankers"...aka...the jews...

And then plainly to their fellow citizens who mock or doubt them...

*poof*...instant Mcveigh...

Just add explosives...

THAT is the real danger my friends...

Ever vigilant.

Ok, thx alot Alex.

Well put Zeitgeist. The 9/11 hijackers are a good illustration of that. All fairly wealthy, well educated, and not exactly "good Muslims" (women and alcohol). All it takes is for some Imam to come along, offer a few words of wisdom, play on their guilt a little, and focus their dissatisfaction with the world onto a specific target. It's amazing how easily people can be brainwashed when you understand how to speak to them.
