Kevin Barrett Finally Wins Something

I have been on vacation, so I missed this, but Kevin "Hang em high" Barrett made the media again, with Rolling Stone journalist and frequent truther critic Matt Taibbi awarding him the Most Obnoxious Thing on the Internet This Month. Matt might be a little behind though, because he is usually the most obnoxious thing on the Internet any month.




The author is a Truther and former Fullbright scholar from Wisconsin named Kevin Barrett who at one point was a professor at UW but left amid controversy over his lunatic-ass views. (I love the fact that the last course he was scheduled to teach at Wisconsin was on The Canterbury Tales). Barrett starts out by pointing out the huge percentages of the worldwide Muslim population believe 9/11 was an inside job, then adds that the Mosque should be turned into a kind of museum of American treachery:

The best means of repentance and reparation, in my view, would be for the U.S. government to fund and build a new mosque at Ground Zero covering the entire World Trade Center site, with twin minarets looming above in memory of the Twin Towers’ destruction by genocidal Islamophobes. The minarets should be more than 700 feet in height, which would make the new structure the world’s tallest mosque.

Barrett was never a "professor" at UW. He was a temporary part-time lecturer. He lured Noam Chomsky into an email exchange by claiming that he (Barrett) had lost a tenure-track for his 9/11 beliefs. That was a lie. Barrett never had a tenure-track job to lose.

Barrett is not by any stretch of the imagination a Truther. He has consistently promoted the worst nonsense out there, from space beams to Captain Eric May's numerological natterings to William Rodriguez' obvious carnival con job to the Citizen Investigation Team. He has been banned from every Truth forum of any consequence, and if you Google Barrett on news or on blogs you will find that his bragged-about award has achieved no notice whatsoever in the truth movement.

He flew all the way to London only to address 100 souls in a 1000-seat hall. He's toast.

Barrett's Jew-hatred, his lying, his wife-beating, and his repeated calls for violence put him beyond the pale in the truth movement some time ago. Not to mention that on a 50,000 watt AM radio station he characterized the holocaust as "toasting six million Jews".

Nobody cares, Brian.

After all, you're a psychopath and a sex stalker who terrified Carol Brouillet.

"...You have a crush on me and erroneously hold delusions about me. You are being irrationally jealous of Kevin and William. You cannot accept the fact that I am happily married and refuse to allow you to try to cause trouble between my husband and I. Because of your delusions, I cannot ever feel 'safe' in your presence alone, and would rather not see you again, but you are so desperate for attention that you are doing extremely negative, destructive things--attacking me and respected members of the 9/11 Truth Movement to force me to pay attention to you." -- Carol Brouillet

Of course Kevin Barrett is an asshole; no one disputes that assertion. You, however, are no better.

Now, get the Hell out of here--you pathetic attention whore.

Twit. According my entirely random poll of local Muslim taxi drivers, a majority of the local Muslim taxi-driving population believes that the UK government pays all Christian ministers. Well, that's not true. So what does it matter if according to Kevin Barrett the majority of the Muslim world things 9/11 was an inside job? A majority of people can be wrong, truth is not determined by a majority vote, but by the FACTS of the case.

Oh dear!

Iranian state propaganda organ, Press TV likes to have nuts like this on to offer a false-flag theory of history. Guess which events get mentioned...

Chomsky into an email exchange by claiming that he (Barrett) had lost a tenure-track for his 9/11 beliefs.

There is no such prerequisite. Apparently Chomsky is quite responsive to emails from ordinary shmoes. Here's just one example.

As Someone With No Taste for Kevin Barrett, This IS Interesting

From BG's link, Barrett writes

"Why are these people harassing you, Kevin?" he asked me over Thai food at a West London restaurant not far from his home. I told him the truth: I really don't know.

Let me help you, Barrett. It's very simple - they don't like your troof and the fact you are promoting it makes you a disinfo agent. You don't like their troof and that makes them disinfo agents.
Catfight ensues. Such is the way of the troof.

Brian says:

He has been banned from every Truth forum of any consequence,

Ain't no such beast, Brian. That's an oxymoron, or something.

Well, I think he meant "of consequence within the Truther movement." Which is just as meaningless as Bria-- er, snug.bug's assertions of who the "real" truthers are.

And check out this word verification: "crezeigh." Ha!

Your verification, not mine, which is more like Sheesh!

You guys here remind me a lot of the CIT-heads. They believe anything that supports their prejudices, they discard anything that contradicts them, and they rewrite reality for their own rhetorical convenience.

Barrett was a Fulbright scholar? How in fuck's name did he wangle that?

Brian Good whines, "...You guys here remind me a lot of the CIT-heads. They believe anything that supports their prejudices, they discard anything that contradicts them, and they rewrite reality for their own rhetorical convenience."

The magnitude of the hypocrisy would be hilarious if it weren't so horrible.

Again, get the Hell out of here--you pathetic, attention starved 57-year old child.
