Hopefully it will fool those 9-11 Deniers
, because it's a very cleverly disguised piece of government propaganda. Notice all the mistakes just in the first few pages:
Page 1: Is a rip-off scene, showing an event that never happens in the movie. Besides, it's completely wrong geographically. We clearly can see that the North Building has already been hit, so the plane is coming in towards the south side of WTC 2, right? So our perspective is from the west. One problem; then the North Building should be closer to us, not the South Building. It's cartoon fakery at its most dishonest; clearly the government inserted this panel (and many others) to fool us!
After a brief sex scene that is not gratuitous at all, and clearly relevant to the plot, we get around to the point of the comic, which is that it is taking place on the morning of 9-11-01.
Page 3-4: As Steve exits the subway, he observes people scattering away in fear. He asks somebody what's wrong, and is told, "Haven't you heard? A plane just hit the World Trade Center!"
But look at panel 5 at the bottom of page 4. How many things are wrong with that panel?
1. There is no spot on the ground in midtown Manhattan where you can see the World Trade Center buildings.
2. Why is there only a fireball from the other tower, and not the smokestack we saw on 9-11?
And then on page 5, the government disinfo really gets thick. In panel 2, we learn that, "Steve saved many lives that day." He is shown guiding people to safety as the south tower collapses.
But... shouldn't Steve have known that the people were not in trouble? Shoudn't he have laughed and said, "Don't worry folks, a steel building has never collapsed from a fire before? Let's go inside the lobby and get a couple of Snapples for the walk home!"
And how about page 10, where Steve lays down a line of obvious bull:
"And I want to know why President Bush was reading stories to school children in Florida for twenty minutes after he learned the second plane hit."
Michael Moore, surely not President Bush's greatest admirer, timed the reading at seven minutes. How hard is it to get something like that right? Or on page 13:
"And what's this sh*t about Mohammed Atta's passport found at the scene?"
Uh, I dunno, Steve, maybe you want to recheck your facts on that. It was Satam al-Suqtami's passport that was found in the rubble. Funny how you diligent investigators all get that wrong.
"And who gave Bush the right to declare war? Only Congress can do that!"
Gee, must be why Congress passed
a "War Powers Resolution" in 2002.
Some classic lines, too; surely they were penned by William Kristol, or
"People like Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, they're the real tough guys."
Yes, I can recognize the work of the geniuses at the New World Order when I see it. Great job, fellas!
