Join the 9/11 Debunking "Cult"
I mentioned earlier how the "Feathered Bastard" had confirmed that Kevin Barrett had written his Holocaust denial e-mail, or as Barrett refers to it as simply "pulling his chain". Barrett, who apparently is trying to replace Uncle Fetzer as the "Scholar" with the most anger management issues, has now replied in the comments of his blog. Bizarrely he compares critics of the 9/11 denial movement to a "cult".
Barrett then goes on to once again misrepresent the New York Times poll regarding what people think the administration knew about terrorist threats, which I responded to in the comments.
I guess I didn’t succeed in calming him, since he is still hysterically angry at everyone involved in the 9/11 Accountability Conference to be held in Chandler, AZ Feb. 23rd-25th. Why do 9/11 skeptics drive him into a blind fury? Perhaps for the same reason cult members hate those who wish to deprogram them. People who invest their self-image in any myth (meaning “sacred story”) fly into a rage when anyone challenges their faith. That is why religious doubters were burned as witches and heretics, and honest journalists and historians are reviled as“conspiracy theorists.”
Lemmons’ hysteria, like any cult member’s hatred of a would-be deprogrammer, is presumably driven by the sneaking suspicion that the deprogrammer might turn out to be right. But that would be too horrible to contemplate! Rev. Moon, a flimflam artist? Bush and Cheney false-flag terrorists? Best to banish the horrible thought by flinging insults the way frightened monkeys fling their turds.
Perhaps Mr. Barrett should look up the definition of a cult, courtesy of the American Heritage Dictionary.
A religion or religious sect generally considered to be extremist or false, with its followers often living in an unconventional manner under the guidance of an authoritarian, charismatic leader.
Sounds like the 9/11 denial movement to me. We aren't the ones who go through constant schisms and accusations of betrayal and infiltration.
