Framing The Truth Movement As Terrorists


Bellicose establishment hacks like O'Reilly and Beck pray for another attack so they can blame it on peaceful activists who are putting them to shame

A disturbing trend has emerged amongst establishment "news" hacks who are raising the same talking point ad infinitum, dubbing the global truth movement as "anarchists" and violent individuals who may be aiding terrorists, and praying for another attack in America so they can blame peaceful activists who are consistently putting the Neo-Cons to shame.

Over the past weeks and months talking heads such as Fox News bigot Bill O'Reilly and his frothing caricature Glenn Beck over on CNN, have specifically targeted 9/11 truthers in segments designed to portray the movement as dangerous and sow the seed in the minds of what viewers they have left that peaceful truth seekers are actually in league with violent terrorists.

Two weeks ago Beck aired a response to the We Are Change infiltration of Bill Maher's show in which he stated:

"These truthers are exactly the kind of people who want to rock this nation's foundation, tear us apart and plant the seeds of dissatisfaction in all of us."

At one point Beck even suggested that the 9/11 truth movement is "the kind of group a Timothy McVeigh would come from", insinuating the movement is intent on violence and terrorism.



In thousands of 9/11 protests over the course of the last six years, not one person has been arrested for violent conduct. To carte blanche suggest that the truth movement is dangerous, "a threat to children" and intent on violence is extremely inflammatory and indicates just how afraid of everyday people investigating and debating the facts people like Glenn Beck actually are.

The core of the 9/11 truth movement is composed of well educated and rational thinking individuals who are strictly opposed to violence and are intent on protecting a free and peaceful society which has been under dire threat ever since the attacks of 9/11 and the ensuing cover up.

Furthermore, the movement represents the very antithesis of anarchism in that it is actively seeking to restore and protect our traditional form of government which has been usurped by an unaccountable cabal that continues to operate outside of Constitutional law and with little restraint, using 9/11 as justification.

Most recently Bill O'Reilly has been running segments, such as the one below, suggesting that questions over 9/11, the war on terror and the war in Iraq are "going to lead to violence":



O'Reilly flat out states "This is going to lead to death" and makes all kind of threats stating, "If they are not reigned in by the authorities, and they should be...somebody is going to get hurt."
We could announce that Bill O'Reilly is dangerous and aids terrorists, based on O'Reilly's own standard for claiming that people are dangerous and aid terrorists - i.e. no evidence whatsoever except the fact that he disagrees with their politics.

If anyone is a threat to the American way of life then it's Beck and O'Reilly - having implicated themselves with a history of repugnant statements proving they are enemies of the Constitution and the freedoms that define America.

In addition, the only violent statements made on 9/11 truth websites have been written by trolls and debunkers attempting to discredit the movement - they should be investigated for advocating violence, not peaceful activists who are merely trying to speak truth to power.

People like O'Reilly and Glenn Beck would relish the opportunity to have their baseless allegations "proved right", and should some act of violence or terrorism be carried out, whether real or staged, they would love to blame it on the 9/11 truth movement, in a similar way to how the patriot movement was blamed for the OKC bombing in 1995.

With the explosion of the alternative media and with more and more people confronting government officials and elitist figures from the US to Canada to the UK, in "guerilla journalism" style, the mainstream media has come to realize that they can no longer get away with reporting only one side of the story.

Figures like Beck and O'Reilly are running scared because they know the people are no longer buying into their manipulative propaganda and are searching for the truth themselves.

Such shameful tactics are not going to work because the horse has already bolted and the seeds of truth have been scattered over the globe by the winds of change.

What we are witnessing is the establishment's desperate attempt to cling onto their information monopoly as the Internet, alternative radio and guerilla activism grow in leaps and bounds while the mainstream withers away and loses all credibility.

As Gandhi said - First they ignore us, then they laugh at us, and then they attack us.

Then we win.

Let’s take a look into ACTUAL violent statements of the Neo-con hacks who really SHOULD be investigated as terrorists. Shall we? Come on kiddies, gather ‘round and enjoy the hypocrisy.

Here’s Rush Limbaugh threatening a reporter’s children on his radio show on 10/15/07



Here’s Ann Coulter wishing for John Edwards to be killed in an assassination plot



And, how we could we forget Bill O’ Reilly’s threat to 9/11 truther Kevin Barrett? On July 11, 2006, O'Reilly remarked, "This guy (Barrett) would have been gone at Boston University, my alma mater, in a heartbeat. The Chancellor there, John Silber, would of--would have--this guy'd be in the Charles River floating down, you know, toward the harbor."

How could we forget O' Reilly's threat to bloggers? On October 18, 2006, O’ Reilly had this to say about bloggers, "I have to say President Bush has a much healthier attitude toward this than I do. Because if I can get away with it, boy, I’d go in with a hand grenade."

Or Ann Coulter’s threat to send everyone in the New York Times building anthrax and that Timothy McVeigh blew up the wrong building (insinuating that he should have picked the NY Times building)?

Could you imagine a 9-11 activist making any of these comments? My goodness, it would be the #1 covered story on O' Reilly's show for 2 weeks straight, and he wouldn't be satisfied until the truther was sent away to Gitmo. But the right-wing Neo-con slugs can say these things all year long, and nothing ever, ever, ever happens.

Not ONE 9/11 truther has ever been charged for ANY violence of ANY kind, but these Neo-con, fear mongering turds can threaten people and landmarks practically on a daily basis and yet WE are the ones to fear? You fear us alright Billo, Coultergeist and all your war and hatemongering shithead buddies, but not because of violence, but because your audiences are getting smaller and ours are getting larger.

To repeat the words of Gandhi above….they ignore us, then laugh at us, then attack us. There’s no greater reward than watching the media spin machine at large cringe at our rapid widespread acceptance across the country.
