9/11 Truthers Suffering from Mental Illness
The propaganda machine has decided that rather than answer questions about the actions of the federal government, those who ask the questions will be painted with the terrorist brush and dismised.
The recent Pentagon shooter, John Patrick Bedel, is reported to be a “9/11 truther” with a history of mental illness. The phrase “9/11 truther” is used by the propaganda machine as a umbrella to classify all citizens who question the government and media explanation of 9/11.
In the video below, CNN interviews an “expert” who associates mental illness with “9/11 truthers”. The “expert”, John Avlon, is the author of Wingnuts: How the Lunatic Fringe is Hijacking America. Avlon's’s opinion is that “9/11 truthers” are wingnuts. Avlon, was a former chief speechwriter for New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani who may have much to hide regarding his actions on 9/11.
John Patrick Bedel, the Pentagon shooter, is described as a computer programmer and Joe Stack, who flew his plane into a building housing IRS offices in Austin, TX last month, was reported to be a software engineer. (Could working with computer software lead to “terrorist acts”?) Stack is a said to be the author of a “manifesto” which questioned the government.
The propaganda machine is carefully orchestrating events and inserting the image that citizens who question the government may be a danger to other citizens. Headlines such as AOL's Pentagon Shooter Saw Vast Gov't Conspiracies underline this idea.
