More, Please!

We have hammered the 9-11 Troofers for their continued association with Holocaust Deniers and other disreputable characters. So it is only fair to note when somebody makes an effort to clean house.

By no means do all believers in either the “Illuminati” or demonized “bankers” hate Jews. Many do not. Some are even Jews themselves. However, these ideologies are historically intertwined with and closely parallel classic Jew-hating myths. For example, some anti-Illuminists have claimed that the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a notorious anti-Jewish forgery, is entirely true and accurate if you just substitute “Illuminati” for “Jews.” And a lot of the rhetoric we’ve been hearing in the alternative media about the Federal Reserve System is derived from writings such as Secrets of the Federal Reserve by Eustace Mullins, a notorious Jew-hater who also believed that Jews ritually kill Christian children. Speaking of ritual murder, there’s also the “Satanic Ritual Abuse” scare, which often goes hand-in-hand with anti-Illuminism.

Alex Jones' Cremation of Care claims anybody? Solid and interesting post by Diane. Further discussion of the topic is here and here.

An aside here: I am never certain when praising some element of the 9-11 "Truth" movement for something whether I am helping them within the movement or if I'm just serving to marginalize them. Either outcome is reasonably logical, and probably has more to do with the individual reader than with what I actually wrote. Therefore, I don't consider the reactions of the Troofers when I post. I post what I believe and let the chips fall where they may.
