ANSWERing the Question
LeftWright, who's moderating 9-11 Blogger during the new glasnost era, asks at Truth Action:
Who are you referring to? Have you tried working with the ANSWER crowd?
We were civil and did everything they asked and they shut us out, again.
We endorsed the March 20th event, donated as much or more than most of the other organizations and they denied us two minutes to speak on stage.
Next time you see Brian Becker ask him why his brother Richard treats us so poorly in SF. Ask him why the ANSWER organizers threatened to call the police on WAC LA during their march.
The Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance booth was the most popular at the rally, but they won't let anyone mention 9/11 on their stage.
Tell me what you think is going on here, Jon?
This is a very good question, and the answer (ANSWER) is that the "peace" movement has collapsed so completely during the Obama Administration that they can't see that the "Truth" movement is now on a par with them. I remember back in 2006, the Troofers used to point to an oceanful of signs and say "Look, there's a 9-11 Truth poster." Now they actually dominate the scenery as we saw with the LA crowd.
But the peace movement is still operating under the old regime, where they had hundreds of thousands showing up to protest Bush. Nowadays they're drawing fractions of the Tea Party movement (which I neither endorse nor condemn). They are having a hard time adjusting to the fact that the Troofers are a very significant minority in the anti-Obama peace movement; probably larger than the Workers World Party cadres (from whom ANSWER was formed), and just as motivated.
I actually give Cindy Sheehan and Dahlia Wasfi some credit here; they seem to have adjusted to the realities on the ground. The 9-11 Troof movement is now a significant part of the peace movement. As to which side that benefits, deponent sayeth not.
