I'm OK, You're Disinfo
Continuing on with the paranoia theme, Crimes of the State blog has a post that illustrates another aspect of the lunacy of these people.
It's a sad day for me, as I have to wade hip deep through this sewage. But, it's come to this. We are drowning in DIS-information, that is deliberate gibberish passed off as a "9/11 conspiracy theory," which is intended to associate all of the 9/11 skeptics with "whack job" ideas about that day.
The rational public will then see the "whack job" ideas dutifully printed in the mainstream corporate press, and they will respond with revulsion to the concept of skepticism of the official 9/11 story. It's simple guilt by association psychology.
No one wants to associate with obvious morons. There is indeed method to the madness.
As if we haven't suffered enough ad hominem attacks, we now must defend against deliberate campaigns that are on their face: MAD. And they're supposedly coming from us.
Of course, it is never quite explained why some ideas the 9-11 Denial movement pushes are saner than others. Is Controlled Demolition really sensible while "no planes" theories are outlandish? Or are they all equally potty?
We also hear about a phenomenon we've seen time and again with the Deniers. They embrace the newest kook, and then look on in horror as he exhibits crackpot behavior:
If millions and millions of people could be so easily redirected, so easily discredited by their own words, their own deeds, the perps at the top had learned a valuable lesson. The weaknesses of the "9/11 Truth Movement" were that it was vulnerable to distractions, to infiltration, to bogus evidence, and even to nonsensical arguments.
Take the case of Michael C. Ruppert, one of the first, perhaps one of the greatest investigators into September 11th 2001. His Truth and Lies of 9/11 is what roped me into this subject, back in late 2002. Ruppert was a powerful speaker, a devoted investigator, and a serious scholar of ilicit US government covert operations.
So, when everyone expected him to crack the case wide open in his book Crossing the Rubicon, we found out that he had written a book primarily about ... "Peak Oil???"
As we have also seen with Jim Fetzer, Morgan Reynolds, and Judy Wood. Of course we see this as a reflection of the fact that you have to be a little unbalanced to become a "Truther" in the first place; they see it as a malicious effort to disrupt their tea party.
