After That, They Start Charging?

I had to laugh a bit at this note at the end of a column on Box Boy Gage and Eric Lawyer's appearance in a Bay Area theater:

If you go
WHAT: Alternative view of Sept. 11
WHERE: Bal Theatre, 14808 E. 14th St., San Leandro
WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Saturday
TICKETS: $10; first 100 firefighters are free

LOL WTF. My fascination with the Truther movement is becoming one of schadenfreude.

Not exactly sure what's funny about a simple advertisement. Is it the "1st 100 firefighters" thing? I doubt he'll get too many if any firefighters, let alone so many that the 1st 100 would need to be free.

Billman, that's certainly what I found amusing. Like there's going to be more than 100 firefighters present.

Heh, I misread the headline as "after that, they start changing?" instead of charging. I get it now. My reading comprehensions error.

What about police or paramedics or other first responders? They don't get in free?

How about "first 100 sane people" free?
They wont get a dozen of those, unless they go for the unintentional comedy...

Chaos on the streets of San Leandro. All hell breaks loose as thousands of firefighters are told they've missed the cut, and they'll have to shell out $10 to hear some crackpot spew scientific mumbo jumbo.

It'll make the 92 riots look like a picnic. Reginald Denny all over again.

Might as well have said "first 100 supermodels free."

How about the first 100 *genuine* structural engineers or demolitions experts free?

LOL I doubt they'll get more than 100 people the world premire of the last version of Loose Change didn't get that many IIRC. In any case they'd have to be insane to even dream they could get anywhere near that many firefighters.

They should have put in a footnote. "We're letting you in for free, so you can hear us accuse of your brethren in New York City of being complicit in the mass murder of their fellow citizens on 9/11."

first 100 firefighters are free


I think they need to be careful with that. What if 100 firefighters in the area objected to the idea that the New York Fire Department were involved in the attacks which killed over 300 fire fighters and decided to go along to express their disagreements?

"...but only 100 of you. After that you have to pay full admission price like everyone else."

Quote a firefighter saying they saw fires on EVERY floor of WTC7.

That would be 47 floors, btw.

"When the building came down it was completely involved in fire, all forty-seven stories."

Okay, you got three, quotes. 1st guy says "nearly", 2nd says "virtually", "weasel words" according to Guitarbill. Your third guy says "it was completely involved in fire", a weird way of saying something, but maybe that was taken on the day and its understandable someone might not be talking perfectly.

So you got 1 firefighter that comes close to what you asserted:

You mean like the ones who said they saw fires on every floor of WTC7?

And being picky(because that's what you ppl do here, when in Rome), only the first statement(qualified by "nearly)indicates the firefighter actually saw the fires himself. The others are making statements that could be from a report.

AND ITS ALL BESIDE THE POINT CUZ

Sword of Truth quoted

With the response

You mean like the ones who said they saw fires on every floor of WTC7?

Which seems to imply debunkers think even the firefighters who agree with them are funny.

PWNED

Unfortunately for you, "virtually" or "nearly" 47 floors of fire still puts the fire at several metric $#!+-loads bigger than 9/11 twoofers say it was.

I'd happily concede that there were only 40 out of 47 floors on fire... it wouldn't mean anything to me and it would still be the biggest gawddamn office building fire in galactic history.

Even if you squeezed "virtually" and "nearly" for all you possibly could, it still makes the twoofer claims of "few small fires of short duration" a bald-faced lie 180 degrees removed from the truth.

WTC7 = biggest office building fire EVER.

Deal with it, bitch.

Having trouble following the thread? Sokay, I was surprise Trite didn't pick up on it.

Background: debunkers at this blog mock 911 widows, now appear to be mocking fire-fighters

Anonymous sez

Sword of Truth sez

Which is either
a) bait to talk about WTC7 or
b)implying debunkers think firefighters are funny...including the ones reporting fires on all floors of WTC7.

Ergo, Ipso facto, debunkers think fire-fighters who report WTC7 having fires on all floors are funny. And by not picking up on that subtlety, Triterope confirms it

Which makes ya'll not look so "patriotic". LOL

Why do you think the firefighters reported seeing fire on every floor of WTC7, dumbass?

 
At 11 May, 2010 22:19, Anonymous Sword of Truth said...

Actually, @#$% it. I'm not gonna waste time trying to wrangle an answer that you will never give because you're ashamed and embarrassed by it. I'm going to tell you why you think the firefighters reported massive fires inside WTC7.

You think the firefighters are murderers who killed their own sons and brothers, that's why.

You're a gawddamn hypocrite. You whine and bitch about imagined slights against the sainted "Jersey Girls" while your attitudes towards firefighter families who lost their own flesh and blood is far more vicious and hateful than anything you've hallucinated James, Pat or SLC commenters saying.

"Having trouble following the thread?"

irony...not really. you asked for quotes of FF saying that every floor of building was on fire. i provided 3 that said it was or at least almost every floor. so what did you do? speculated who saw what based on nothing other than word usage and now you're changing the subject to things i didn't say. keep dancing little truther.

Let me give you a little writing tip, junior: subtlety doesn't work when you don't know what the fuck you're talking about. Which you don't.

Background: debunkers at this blog mock 911 widows, now appear to be mocking fire-fighters

No, that's not the background at all. You have misunderstood every "debunker" comment you've responded to since you got here. For example:

No, you dolt, he's making the point that c) firefighters don't believe 9-11 Truther nonsense because they witnessed the scene firsthand.

You can't understand a simple point like that, and you're taking me to task for "not picking up on your subtlety?" Go fuck yourself.
