Huffpo Hires "Former" Truther and Football Player as National Security Blogger

Of course, the Trutherism is being highlighted by critics:

Stallworth, a wide receiver in the NFL since 2002, is currently an unsigned free agent and has not played in any games since 2012. As a 9/11 truther, he has publicly stated that Osama bin Laden was not responsible for the attacks and that the Pentagon was not hit by a plane.
"NO WAY 9/11 was carried out by 'dying' Bin Laden, 19 men who couldn't fly a damn kite. STILL have NO EVIDENCE Osama was connected, like Iraq," Stallworth tweeted in 2009. Stallworth also tweeted, "Gggrrrrrrrrrrrrr @ ppl who actually believe a plane hit the pentagon on 9/11... hole woulda been ASTRONOMICALLY bigger, God bless lost lives."

The Huffpo claims all that is in the past.  Reading between the lines of this Washington Post piece, it appears that the real attraction of Stallworth to the Huffpo was his support for gay football player Michael Sam.

Vis-a-vis Stallworth’s qualifications, Grim said that “his LGBT work brought him to our attention and impressed us.”
One would think that a more basic qualification for a national security blogger would be a rudimentary understanding of the worst terrorist attack in US history.

Stallworth's thinking: "FOOTBALL IS NOT REAL AND THE FOOTBALL THEY KICK AND THROW IS A CGI FAKE!",

I guess what happened to him happened to a lot of people: their minds got poisoned by the lies and distortions of the truther movement.

But as it seems, he later on did some research himself and discovered that all isn't as it appeared to be at first.

This is what happened to the majority of the so called truthers.

And that is why around 2006, 911 was quite popular and now in 2014 we only some dieharders with apperently no life, going around in circles over and over again.

Yeah, it's time to call them "9/11 Liars" instead of "truthers" cause they have nothing true to say anymore.

Truth hurts, where have you seen Stallworth's renunciation of twooferism? I know the HuffPo is claiming it's "in the past" but is Stallworth himself admitting that he was dumb ass on the topic?

Ok, it turns how he has issued an "I've come to my senses" statement.

http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2014/09/huffington-post-hires-truther-to-cover-national-security-194868.html

The fact that he bought into that crap in the first place (he was an adult at the time) is still a disqualfier.

He seems to still be a anti-vax and climate change denial nut. One too many blows to the head in his football playing days, methinks.

I think y'all may be showing your usual confirmation bias here.

Stallworth didn't say "people say dumb things." Grim did. Stallworth didn't say he had rejected 9/11 Truth. He said his views had changed. I don't think I know any truthers whose views haven't changed over the last five years--and I don't think I want to know any whose views haven't evolved in that time.

Hey, it's everyone's favorite failed janitor, liar, and lunatic who can't afford a decent haircut come to post more spam about his 9/11 delusions!

Welcome back, Brian. I can't wait to tell you all about my lavish wedding and honeymoon, which you'll never be able to experience yourself since you have no job, no friends, and no romantic life.

 
At 05 September, 2014 14:17, Blogger Ian said...

Also, Brian, your views haven't changed a bit in 5 years. You still babble about invisible widows with questions, magic thermite elves, and "essential mysteries" just as you did when you first started posting dumbspam on this blog in 2009.

A fun statement coming from our ever circling Brian...

I bet you don't see the contradition in that.

How can he change his view if his view was the truth...

Funny how thermite is used for construction rather than destruction. Thermite would've welded all the steel together and the Towers wouldn't have come down. Strike 3!

So lying Ianinny is back with more lying iananiy,

Stewie, you might as well argue that knives are used to prepare food for people and therefore knives can not be used to kill people.

th, get your GED. You'll feel much better about yourself.

That is all you have left, Brian, insults ..

 
At 07 September, 2014 12:30, Blogger truth hurts said...

@consdemo: I haven't heared himself about it, I trust that Huffpost has checked it as it is their reputation that is on the line..

We shall see if he really backed away from thruthism or that he will produce new content for this blog...

So lying Ianinny is back with more lying iananiy,

Do you know how much money I spent on my honeymoon, Brian? Let's just say that it could buy a lifetime's worth of haircuts. But I can afford that because I'm a smart successful professional with an MBA, while you can't even afford one haircut because you're a failed janitor who lives with his parents. HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

Good, can I test that theory on you Brian? Oh that's right Brian is that stupid dog that Peter and Lois got at the pound. You know dog, I hate you but sometimes you make me laugh. Now go after the ball I threw into the street.

There's no need for me to comment--I can just sit back and let you guys be who you are.

 
At 08 September, 2014 15:33, Blogger Ian said...

Yes, Brian. You can let us be who we are: smart, successful, normal people who have jobs and friends and family and whose lives don't revolve around stalking Willie Rodriguez on the internet.

And you can be the opposite: a loser with no job, no friends, no family, and nothing better to do with his life than post spam about Willie Rodriguez all over the internet.

Ian, your belief that we should share in your inflated self-regard is silly. Lying iananity from a lying ianinny can not be believed.

Yup, all Brian can do now is squeal hysterically because the truth movement has failed completely.

Ianinny, there's nothing hysterical about calling you out for your lies.

 
At 10 September, 2014 11:11, Blogger truth hurts said...

Then why do you do it, brian?

 
At 10 September, 2014 15:55, Blogger Ian said...

Hey Brian, just to demonstrate how I'm a success and you're a failure, just look at your "widows" and their "questions".

You've been working for years to get the widows questions answered. I've been working for years to keep their questions from being answered.

Guess who has succeeded, and who has failed?

I rest my case.

 
At 10 September, 2014 21:26, Blogger snug.bug said...

Ian, your belief that temporarily staving off answers for the widows' questions is "success" shows you to have a peculiar and pathetic value system. Their questions will be answered by history, your efforts will be for naught, and your depravity will stand for all time.

Poor Brian, all he can do is squeal hysterically because he knows I've won and he's lost.

So basicly, you acknowledge that your babbling about them doesn't matter at all.

The truth and shadows website was an advocate of the Pentagon flyover theory. I showed that theory to be completely without merit. I don't think truth and shadows advocates flyover any more. I don't think anyone does.

Well, the odd thing is that you experienced first hand how truthers react when you counter their theories. Yet you do the same when others counter your theories....
