Jon Gold: I'm Bigger than Egypt!

Which of course is a slight exaggeration:
On January 31st, two acts of civil disobedience for 9/11 Justice were committed in front of the White House and 10 Downing Street respectively. Not one news outlet reported on it. Even a news outlet that promised me they would report on it, did not. The excuse given to me was that Egypt's revolution was more important.

I've got news for you, Jon. A mosquito bite is more newsworthy than a couple 9-11 Troofers getting their doltish butts thrown in jail.

More proof of the 9-11 Truth/mental illness link. A sane person would understand why Egypt is a bigger news story. And could express it in less than 6,000 words.

Triterope, I'd say there's an even bigger link between losers with ridiculously big egos and 9/11 truth. Jon Gold thinks he should be more important than he is, and can't understand why a real mass movement of people with real grievances against a real dictatorship is more newsworthy than a lone fat guy babbling about some nonsensical conspiracy theory.

There are a group of old hippies who have been quietly protesting nuclear weapons outside the White House for years. You don't see them demanding attention from the media.

So the truthers have an lowly slug like gold, and we have people like Bill Moyer.

Disinformation is not unique to the right, of course. Like other journalists, I have been the object of malevolent assaults from the "9/11 truthers" for not reporting their airtight case proving that the Bush administration conspired to bring about the attacks on the World Trade Center. How did they discover this conspiracy? As the independent journalist Robert Parry has written, "the truthers" threw out all the evidence of al-Qaeda's involvement,

It's not true that "the truthers" threw out all evidence of al Qaeda.
That's a silly straw man argument.
Paul Thompson's Terror Timeline is full of evidence of al Qaeda.

And the "No True Scotsman" fallacy rears its head again, courtesy of Brian Good: the guy who thinks al Qaeda did it and didn't do it at the same time.

And then tells us this is evidence of "dishonesty" on the part of the US government.

Gold is such a fan he posted a response within hours of this post.

Yeah, I think you're right. Jon's more of a loser with a big ego than mentally ill. But still, thinking your one-man one-hour protest is more important than worldwide Islamic revolution does represent a severe detachment from reality. Let's say the ratio of the two factors is about 70-30.

No TRUE truther believes in controlled demolitions.

When you take all the kook out of truthers, you have nothing left.

Yes, Jon, you are bigger than Egypt. Have another hamburger.

Hopefully he doesn't go postal (or should we now say truther?) from all the bitterness and pent up rage about not being heard.

Hey Ian, it's because most truthers suffer from paranoid schizophrenia or bipolar disorders. This material is perfect for amplifying the symptoms for those disorders.
