Why Weren't They Complaining Before?

According to Bill Douglas, who has been promoting Steve Alten's upcoming Shell Game so much even the other troofers on 911 Blogger are complaining, Mr. Alten has become the victim of harassment, where someone, among other things, "put a map of his home and his personal private phone number and home address up on the internet".

Now I of course condemn such behavior, but where have I heard this before, where someone put up the personal information of people they don't like on the Internet? Oh yeah, Kevin Barrett, in fact he created a web site, solely for that purpose. And strangely enough, I don't recall a single truther ever questioning this in any way, or characterizing it as "harassment". In fact, when we did several posts on this, the troofer community completely ignored it.

Now the ironic thing is, Steve Alten is scheduled to appear on Barrett's radio show on January 22nd to promote his book. I am sure we can expect Steve to demand that Barrett renounce all such behavior.

Update: I e-mailed Mr. Alten to get his response, and he blamed this on a "bogus 9/11 group that claims Israel is behind 9/11". Of course, given the huge number of people in the 9/11 truth movement who blame Israel, there is absolutely no reason to think that they are "bogus", these are just the people in the 9/11 truth movement! The ironic thing is, I warned Mr. Alten about getting involved with these people in the comments of the original thread I made on this book.
