Truthers on NPR Connecticut
The Building Wut contingent appeared on something called the Colin McEnroe show yesterday. For the most part, they were calm and collected; Manny Badillo, in particular, presents himself as very soft-spoken and sensible. Note that he sloughs off the question of what he believes happened on 9-11. But in the past he has not been quite so reticent:
Starts about 3:50 in, but at 6:10 Manny uses the classic "9-11 was an inside job" formulation.
But without a doubt, the best part of the current interview comes when "Frank" calls in about 38:10, and asks why with everything else going on in the world, do they focus on 9-11? The response from one of the Connecticut Truthers, Joanne Bauer, is mind-boggling. She believes that all of these issues are interconnected. The first thing she brings up (two "illegal" wars) you can argue is connected to 9-11, certainly. But the next thing is "financial disparities between the rich and the poor" and the thing after that is that Hartford (CT) is one of the poorest cities in America. "This is clearly a result of what happened that day."
! Nine-eleven made Hartford a poor city? Who would have guessed?
