Meria Heller's Keynote Address to the Kooks

Lots of amazing bits in this address. At 20:49 she quotes from a "great book" called The Puzzle of Fascism, which of course is one of Eric D. Williams' efforts. Apparently one of the aims of the conference is to rehabilitate Eric's name.

All I can say is that I hope they succeed in convincing 9-11 Deniers that, as more and more people at 9-11 Blogger are claiming, Williams is not a Holocaust Denier. Hey, folks, I have his book, from the brief period that he had it available for free on his website.

Meria spends a fair amount of time talking about the Holocaust; but she talks about the Holocaust in Iraq and Afghanistan, about the "silent' Holocaust of Global Warming, about the Holocaust of Arizona's desert which is being developed at the rate of an acre an hour.

More nuttery than you can imagine. At 22:45 we discover that Meria's got something in common with the John Birch Society:

"We have flouride in our water, which is a mind-control drug."

At 23:20:

"We have contrails and chemtrails poisoning our skies. We have polluted fish, intersex fish (?), fish with Ebola and kidney disease."

Who knew fish had kidneys?

At 30:08:

"We have leaders and members of this administration with dual citizenship with other countries. Well, whose agenda are they following?" (A helpful member of the crowd says, "Israel.")

At 36:15:

"We need to account for Operation Paperclip, which enlisted the worst Nazis in our NASA and our CIA. Whose agenda are they following?" (Mercifully nobody suggests "Israel.")

At 38:30 she puts on a V for Vendetta mask. This seems to be the hot new movie for the crackpots.

At 45:12 (talking about the morning of 9-11):

"Bush was not protected by the Secret Service, nor was his exit route changed. His plane took off from Florida without any fighter jets protecting it. Why not? What did they know? Did they know he wasn't in any danger? Dick Cheney right away was smuggled into a hole like Punxatawny Phil."

Uh, pardon me for pointing this out, Meria, but wasn't Dick Cheney also in no danger? So why was he "smuggled into a hole"?

"Flight 93 supposedly went down in Shanksville, even though no plane parts, passengers, luggage or anything else was at the scene; maybe the government shot it down."

Also, check out the parody she does of the Star Spangled Banner at the end.

Update: BG points out in the comments this email (scroll down a bit) exchange he had with Meria about Richard Andrew Grove.

Grove's one of my favorite 9-11 figures; the clip that Meria played on her show was memorable indeed. He must have rambled on for 45 minutes and while he entertained, at the end of the show you were left trying to figure out exactly what he said and saw.

As I remember it, some companies had prepared software for other companies and he was involved and discovered that this software was being used to launder money, and he was supposed to be in the Twin Towers on 9-11 to confront some manager at Marsh & McClennan but he had been fired so he was just going back to the office as a favor to other people and so he was a little bit lackadaisical about getting there on time and as a result he survived.

James wrote a great post here in July about his appearance at the Chicago Trutherfest.

Off the top of my head, no one's. I don't believe many of them are still alive and I doubt they'd be of working age anymore in any case. And very few were actually enlisted in NASA or the CIA, the vast majority of them went into developing America's contemporary ballistic missile technology. Rather disquietingly their contribution to a lot of stuff was invaluable, even the evil ones'.

Still, better than the alternative. When you're an evil git evading justice it apparently helps to be obscenely smart and useful.

Uhhh... can we see pictures of these fish? Are there any pictures where they've been naughty fish and have to wear a french maids outfit?

*AHEM*

I'm only asking by way of needing to see evidence before accepting her claims, of course.

"Intersex fishes" is also correct. Due to certain types of pollution, an animal can develop with (if I recall correctly) both male and female sex organs (or something similar).

From http://www.livescience.com/environment/intersex_fish_041221.html

Nine male smallmouth bass taken from the Potomac near Sharpsburg, about 60 miles upstream from Washington, were found to have developed eggs inside their sex organs, said Vicki S. Blazer, a scientist overseeing the research for the U.S. Geological Survey.

Authorities say the problems are likely related to a class of pollutants called endocrine disruptors, which short-circuit animals' natural systems of hormone chemical messages.

If the government shot down 93 then there would be debris. I don't get how they think that shooting down a plane leaves no debris. Hell, the debris field would be bigger if it was shot down.

Linked Here is a post I did showing a short email I sent to Meria and the reply from Meria in May, 2006. You'll need to scroll down a the page to see.

Hah, she is a Richard Andrew Grove fan. I would give RAG more credit if he could actually successfully explain a single one of his theories, beyond just making references to Bruce Willis movies.

Guys, I actually know about the intersex fish. I was being facetious and making a joke about shemale fish porn.

Flight 93 supposedly went down in Shanksville, even though no plane parts, passengers, luggage or anything else was at the scene; maybe the government shot it down.

Utterly baffling.

First she lies about there being no trace of Flight 93 and then says this might be cuz it was shot down.

What kind of missile causes a whole plane to vanish? A fucking nuke?

 
At 25 February, 2007 22:40, Blogger Richard said...

Maybe it was a super thermate missile...

Man I love fish porn!

A surprising number, of truthers (well not surprising) believe in this chemtrails poisoning thing, including Jim Marrs and Jeff Rense.

Now if this is the one thing that proves one is a grade A, tin foil hat wearing nutjob, chemtrails.

And this enterprising kook even combined 911 and chemtrails into one CT site.

I rest my case.

I am sorry Swing! Did you think I was going to treat your loony ideas with any respect? You don't need to pick up shit and roll it around in your hands and smell it to know it's shit.

So you buy the Chemtrail crap... No big surprise... How about Roswell and area 51? COME ON! You know you want to tell us how the big bad government is hiding aliens from us.

Well he did admit to believing in bigfoot, if I remember correctly...

So Swing's into chemtrails.

I'm shocked. Shocked I tell ya!

Chf
Called him on that already, I am not suprised.
Chemtrails is a bigger bunch of crap than the 911 conspirisy BS

Swing, is there a single conspiracy theory that you don't believe?
