I guess the conspirazoids are back, or rather they never left.
The above is a quote from Charlie Sheen on some entertainment show. The ones where they fawn over stars and try to show as many shot of young women in revealing clothing. The TV equivalent of “The Star”. Now according to Hot Air there are a lot of e-mails coming from the leftist nutcases with that quote. We’re supposed to believe that Bush & Cheney sent a crew in the middle of the night who placed tons of explosives, wired them, cut supporting structures and did it without anyone seeing them. Right?
Take a look at what it takes to bring down a building on purpose.
The basic idea of explosive demolition is quite simple: If you remove the support structure of a building at a certain point, the section of the building above that point will fall down on the part of the building below that point. If this upper section is heavy enough, it will collide with the lower part with sufficient force to cause significant damage. The explosives are just the trigger for the demolition. It’s gravity that brings the building down.
Demolition blasters load explosives on several different levels of the building so that the building structure falls down on itself at multiple points. When everything is planned and executed correctly, the total damage of the explosives and falling building material is sufficient to collapse the structure entirely, so clean-up crews are left with only a pile of rubble.
But of course, all this may be disinformation put in place to be found when someone started looking. Maybe it’s a lot easier than this. But I haven’t seen anyone claiming that it is, just that it was done so stealthily that no one noticed it while they were doing it and none of the people involved talked about it. But other people concerned about the NSA eavesdropping on terrorists ran directly the newspapers.
Well, they can take it seriously if they want. People believe all kinds of things. But don’t expect me to take anyone who believes this seriously. They’re the same kind of people that are always being abducted by aliens and given anal probes. Probably wishful thinking on their part.
There’s this guy, a lecturer at the University of Wisconsin who is incorporating 911 conspiracy beliefs into a course on Islam. Exactly how 9/11 and the Koran are related is not clear. I’ve looked at my copy and I can’t find a single mention of it. I guess he is using it to try to convince people that Muslims are victims of the big bad white Christians or something. It seems to be dogma that whenever White Christians meet up with any other race or faith, the other always loses. I guess that means that the NBA champions are evil and all the other teams are victims.
But watch him when he appears on Hannity & Colmes. He is bouncing all over the place. It looks to me like he’s tweaking. Even though he’s not a real professor, he’s teaching this course at a major University. That lends a certain weight to his teachings. He talks about the students using their critical thinking skills to evaluate the information, but, as everyone knows, college students are not the sharpest knives in the drawer. They believe a lot of crap just because their professors tell them. They have no experiences to refer to in order to do a reality check.
Since the leftists regularly refer to 25 year old soldiers as “children” and maintain that they are unable to examine things clearly, I would think it obvious that college students are far less equipped to do that. It’s child abuse.
