An Open Letter to Justin Martell and Michael Jackman

I am constantly amused as to how truthers seem to think that anyone outside of their incestuous little community actually gives a damn what they think. A typical example of this is this "open letter" by Justin Martell and Michael Jackman, founders and just about the only active members of the inaccurately titled "Student Scholars for 9/11 Truth" (well OK, they are students as far as I can tell, it is the rest of the title that is misleading).

An Open Letter to the Progressive Left

By Justin A. Martell and Michael Jackman


During this primary season, many advocates for a new investigation into the events surrounding 9/11 have been greeted with a tremendous amount of hostility. The thing is, most of this hostility has not been from “right-wingers,” but mostly from members of the so called progressive left. As registered Democrats, we personally, have been told that we are an “embarrassment to the party,” and called names that we will not repeat. Why has the left shown so much hostility towards advocates of 9/11 truth and justice?

Uhh, sorry guys. You really are an embarrassment to the party. The reason they avoid you is the same reason the cool people avoided you in high school, you are no benefit to them, and you interfere with their goals by tainting them with idiocy. These are people who absolutely loath Bush and Cheney, and they don't want their legitimate political goals to be associated with bizarre space beam, cruise missile, remote controlled planes and thermite theories, even if you do pretend to hide it behind the "just asking questions" veil.
