Charles Krauthammer: 9-11 Truth = Holocaust Denial

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. - Mahatma Gandhi

So here we are...we've advanced to the second stage of Gandhi's maxim. We've been ignored for years, but now the movement has grown so that people pay attention to us just enough to amuse themselves. And that's fine, because there's no such thing as bad publicity. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who hear about 9-11 truth and think to themselves, there's actually people out there who think the government carried out 9-11? And some of those people will laugh too, but maybe, just maybe, some of them will be curious about why we think this way.

There's another maxim that goes like this: you don't start catching flak until you're over the target. And as much of a communist piece of filth that Van Jones is, he's got people talking about 9-11 truth. Ditto Charlie Sheen. And the establishment blowhards like Charles Krauthammer can't contain themselves enough to realize that attacking 9-11 truth, and comparing it to Holocaust denial, among other "insults", only plays into our hands.

For many Americans, whether they believe the official narrative or not, there's a certain repulsiveness about telling us that people who have controversial beliefs are not welcome, that they are "dangerous", that these are people who should not "be permitted in polite society." Says Krauthammer, "You can no more have a truther in the White House than you can have a Holocaust denier - someone who creates a hallucinatory alternative reality in the service of a fathomless malice." What Krauthammer is saying is, only people blindly loyal to the State are allowed to join their reindeer games. You're not allowed - in America - to question, to think. Is this the country we live in now, where unpopular beliefs are so viciously attacked and silenced?

Krauthammer claims that truthers "derangedly desecrate" the memory of that day, but what about the many, many family members who believe there was a cover-up? Bill Doyle, head of the largest 9-11 victims' family organization, WTC Family Group, said, "I honestly don’t believe the government story. The 9/11 Commission report doesn't even begin to get at the truth." If this is just like Holocaust denial, wouldn't this be akin to a concentration camp survivor telling people there was no Holocaust?

Holocaust denial, it seems, is now the new race card. The term racism has lost any real meaning, due to its hyper-excessive use as an ad-hominem attack against anyone who disagrees with the "progressive" agenda. So the establishment - even the so called "conservative" establishment which Krauthammer belongs to - is now content to toss Holocaust denial around the same way global warming alarmists demonize skeptics with the same term. But to liken 9-11 truth to Holocaust denial is to make the supposition that, like the Holocaust, the official narrative on 9-11 is, more or less, cemented in the historical record. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Six out of the ten 9-11 Commission members have stated publicly that the Defense Department lied to the commission so extensively that they considered handing the case over to the Department of Justice for criminal inquiry. Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton, in their book, Without Precedent stated that the commission was "set up to fail". In an October 2006 poll, The New York Times/CBS News revealed that 84% of Americans believe the official government narrative is a cover-up. If such a large percentage of people believed there was something fishy about the official Holocaust story, would it be an insult to liken someone to a Holocaust denier?

Whether you believe 9-11 was an inside job or not, most Americans, consciously or subconsciously, have serious issues with the official narrative. Anyone capable of a coherent thought must find it odd that never before or since 9-11 has a steel framed skyscraper collapsed due to fire, and yet this happened three times in one day. True, never before or since 9-11 have large jumbo jets packed with jet fuel collided with skyscrapers, but there were only two such planes; three buildings collapsed. This isn't Holocaust denial, not beyond radicalism, political psychosis, or malignant paranoia; this is, Mr Krauthammer, common sense.
