Yet Another Distinguished Scholar Joins the Fruitcakes

Hoo-boy, they sure do attract the weirdos. The latest 9-11 JAQer is Clyde Wilson.

Can we judge that the official government story of what happened on 9/11 is unreliable?

We know that politicians lied about the sinking of the "Maine," Pearl Harbour, the Gulf of Tonkin, Waco, and Iraqi WMD. This administration has engaged in more systematic and frequent deception of the public perhaps than any other in recent times. And has been successful at it because the public has never been more ignorant and the media more craven.

So who is Clyde Wilson? His Wikipedia entry includes this moonbattery:

He is the M.E. Bradford Distinguished Chair of the Abbeville Institute, an adjunct faculty member of the libertarian Ludwig von Mises Institute, and an affiliated scholar of the League of the South Institute, the research arm of the League of the South. In 1994 Wilson was an original founder of the League of the South. The League of the South is a Southern nationalist organization whose ultimate goal is "a free and independent Southern republic."

The Southern Poverty Law Center has listed Wilson among the "ideologues" of the Neo-Confederate movement, claiming that he told Gentleman's Quarterly in 1998 that "We don't want the federal government telling us what to do, pushing integration down our throats...

You know, it's getting to the point where if new 9-11 Deniers emerge, the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks racist and anti-semitic hate groups, is the first place to check for information on them.
