9/11 Victim Family Member Comments On Kevin Barrett

Kevin Barrett is starting to replace Jim Fetzer on my list of people to despise. From an article in the Leader-Telegram on one of his appearances:

Barrett, who had some state politicians calling for his firing last year after his government conspiracy theories gained national attention while he was teaching a course on Islam at UW-Madison, shared his controversial opinions Friday evening in a speech at Altoona Public Library.

Vince Statz, a Chippewa Falls man whose 41-year-old daughter, Patty, was killed in the attack on the Pentagon, said Barrett's wacky ideas are an insult to the memory of those who died on Sept. 11.'He's an idiot,' Statz said. 'I don't know why people even give him the time of day.'

It continues later:

'Debunking 9/11 Myths,' however, offers the most irrefutable evidence of all that Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon by pointing out that all but five of the 189 people who died on the aircraft or in the Pentagon were identified through DNA testing.

Barrett's suggestion that a passenger plane didn't strike the Pentagon that day is ludicrous, said Vince Statz, the father of Patty Statz, a Chippewa Falls native and 1979 McDonell High School graduate who worked at the Pentagon.

Her body was identified three weeks after the attack.'That plane came in right where Patty's office was,' Statz said. 'They found pieces of the plane in the Pentagon.'

It's all about emotion, isn't it James:

"Figure out who to despise and slime them until the cows come home."

This tact, taken by all sides in world conflict, but employed in an ugly fashion in the today's US reactionary Right Wing, is the complete opposite of following science and reason.

This blog continues to be a mass masturatory spectacle (to be referred to in the future as the MMS).

BG:

You can complain about the blog posts all you like...as I tell my children, if you dont like what is on TV, TURN THE CHANNEL!!!!

Barrett and Fetzer are two men who should go to hell when they die for the slander and pissing on graves that they have done.

Well coming from a liberal, progressive atheist I find Barrett a slimball. And more so because his kind wraps himself in the flag of a true liberal but in fact is just a major loon.

Sorry BG, sometimes idiocy must be pointed out. I don't belong to this school of thought that says that every point of view is equal. Sometimes things are just plain stupid, and I am not going to pretend otherwise in order to protect egos.

Does this mean that this blog is based on emotion, and not fact? Absolutely not. We have more facts in the average post than the average conspiracy theorist site will have in an entire month. But that doesn't mean we will ignore the moral implications of their slander.

bg, my politics are left of center and I agree completely with the OP. Do you ever say anything that isn't asinine?

When I asked Kevin Barrett to correct serious errors on his website, he said I would be executed alongside the traitor, mass-murderer and insurance fraudster Larry Silverstein. He said he was saving my emails to be used as evidence at my trial.

Kevin Barrett says the creators of "United 93" should be tried for inciting war crimes.

Kevin Barrett compares his critics to Nazis.

Kevin Barrett doubts that anyone has read the whole NIST report.

Kevin Barrett says no indigenous Iraqis have committed terror bombings there.

Kevin Barrett says Larry Silverstein hasn't built anything at Ground Zero.

Kevin Barrett's website begins with the words "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor."

I challenge you to put these statements of Barrett's in a context that makes them acceptable to rational people.

Proceed.
