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".

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.

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.

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.

The video covers the 1993 bombing well.

Re: 911, Kevin Barrett spews the false Pentagon is the best defended building hooey.

New Video worse than Loose Change 1 at sticking to facts and capturing details that point toward the likely truth of 9/11.

Just getting to watching (40 mins in) Kevin Ryan. You guys will relish bashing your water boy.

They make S. Jones (44 mins) look a little like Leisure Suit Larry. (I guess that's a lab jacket?).

They are giving Jones and the Thermate theory lots of face time.

Oh, boy, you guys are going to love DRG recycled.

The guy they interview with the "Got Truth?" T-shirt looks like someone I would trust..... right.

This seems almost as bad as the 9/11 conspiracy video released soon after 9/11 where they included lots of Gary Busey on camera.

I sincerely wish the people behind this were joking.

the sad part is, i can just picture the deniers all lapping up this "cult" bullcrap with relished fervor, not stopping for a second to realize the true irony...

BG, I caught about ten minutes of it earlier; so far pretty recycled nonsense with a really annoying rap song.

This whole "debunkers are a cult" reminds me of "science is just another religion".

The whole conspiracy movement is one huge exercise in projection. They're constantly projecting all their own faults on everyone else.

Now, Alex, if he's not going to ban Nico, what makes you think he's going to ban bg?

Settle down and have a beer. ;-)

I love the mindset of the CT movement. If someone comes along with a "whistleblow", they are all over it, publicizing it to the hilt. If it is then proven to be crap, the movement, simply says,

"Well ya, of course it was fake. Simply more infiltration by the disinfo agents."

It must be nice to live in a world where you are never wrong.
