No, They're Not Paranoid
One of the things that annoys me about truthers, admittedly it is a pretty long list, is how they think they are some sort of mix between Andrei Sakharov and Nelson Mandela because they burned a DVD of Loose Change once when they were in high school. In the wake of the alleged bomb threats against Uncle Fetzer, Alex Jones' Infowars site runs with this theme. My favorite bit:
David Ray Griffin, the world’s leading voice of 9/11 truth, suffered a partially-disabling stroke in the summer of 2010. While he has recovered sufficiently to continue to write and research, the stroke left him with a slight aphasia that has ended his career as a prolific public speaker.
Dr. Bob Bowman, the former head of Star Wars under two US presidents, has had his 9/11 truth efforts slowed by his struggle with cancer.
Even more tragically, the most prestigious scientist ever to take up the cause of 9/11 truth, Lynn Margulis, died of a stroke November 22, 2011. When I last spoke to Lynn, less than a year before her death, she told me she did not want to speak publicly about 9/11 any more, because “politics is too dangerous.” She sounded scared – like someone had warned or threatened her.
Steven Jones, the physics professor who was forced out of Brigham Young University for researching the demolition of the World Trade Center, was warned to stop by a “connected” colleague. Jones did the right thing: he immediately went public about the apparent threat.
Richard Gage, the founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, may have been attacked by the type of EMF or microwave weapon described by Ruppert and Belitsos. In the summer of 2009, in Washington, DC, Gage suddenly suffered vertigo and hearing loss. Activist colleagues who were present suspect some kind of covert attack. Today, Gage still suffers from the after-effects: partial loss of hearing in one ear.
Uhh, yeah, David Ray Griffin is over 70, while Robert Bowman is pushing 80. Lynn Margulis passed away at the age of 73. What are the odds that they might have some health problems. Geez, is the CIA so incompetent that it takes them over a decade to knock off a couple of old men? And Richard Gage, supposedly the leader of this movement of architects and engineers who are going to bring down the New World Order, does he get hit by a bus? No, he loses his hearing, slightly.
If these people want to know what happens to actual dissidents or people who try and expose the truth for real, look up Aung San Suu Kyi or Anna Politkosvkaya
