Once again I am compelled to present my readers with the work of Ann Barnhardt and her post regarding 9-11 Truthers and the Truther movement. My comments will follow the story from Ms. Barnhardt.
TRUTHERISM: THE TOTAL LOSS OF DISCERNMENT
POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – SEPTEMBER 11, AD 2011 9:52 PM MST
I gotta tell you, I’ve just about had it with these 9/11 truthers. If there is one phenomenon in our sick, sick culture that sums up how far gone and utterly damaged we are as a people, it is 9/11 trutherism. It pretty much covers everything: self-loathing, antisemitism, zero knowledge of rudimentary physics (as a function of our decimated education system) and a general inability to think logically, coupled with a truly adolescent tendency to worship cults of personality found on the internet. So, I have some things that I would like to say.
1. It is a miracle that the Twin Towers stood for as long as they did. Those buildings PERFORMED. If you had laid out a scenario to me before 9/11 in which two fully-loaded and fully-FUELED 757 or 767s were crashed into the upper thirds of those buildings at full-throttle, I would have guessed that the force of the impact would have caused the buildings to buckle and snap at a point below the impact, and then the portions above would have instantly collapsed, taking the entire building and all of its occupants out within a matter of seconds. I suspect that this is what the musloids thought, too. The fact that the buildings were able to absorb those impacts and that the structure was robust enough to hold the higher floors in place for over an hour is, in retrospect, a triumph of engineering. Pretty much everyone below the impacts was able to get out. It could have been so much worse. It could have been 30,000 dead.
2. Bad things happen to steel when exposed to prolonged, intense fire. Having a fricking fully-fueled 767 burning inside a skyscraper constitutes a prolonged and intense fire. So does any other building sitting and catastrophically burning for hours on end. I have especially magnified contempt for people who claim to be “engineers” arguing that an inferno isn’t sufficient to “melt steel”. Real engineers (and apparently mildly well-read commodity brokers) know that the steel needn’t be anywhere near the MELTING point to fail in a structure. It didn’t need to get to the LIQUID stage. The strength of steel is massively reduced when it is heated to temperatures that are nowhere near melting to liquid. The strength profile nosedives at temperatures that would result in little-to-no visible change.
3. Do you have any fathom how much energy would be required to make a building fall in any direction OTHER than straight down? And that energy would have to be applied WHILE the collapse was happening. In order for those buildings to fall “off axis”, there would have to be a constant, massive energy application to one side of the structure for the duration of the collapse in order for the axis of gravity to be overcome. You show me ANY demonstration of an object falling in any vector other than toward the center of the earth without a massive outside energy application, and we’ll rename Newtonian physics after you. Seriously. Most people in this nation couldn’t pass a 5th grade science test.
4. Speaking of 5th grade science, have we forgotten about potential and kinetic energy? How much potential energy is there in a super-massive skyscraper? What happens when you convert that potential energy into kinetic energy in the space of a fraction of a second? I’ll tell you what happens. That building is going to fall, pancaking, straight down VERY, VERY FAST.
5. What kind of sound do failing steel joints make? Explosive sounds.
6. How, exactly, does a nefarious cabal rig three of the largest and most heavily trafficked office buildings in the world to collapse without ANYONE seeing or hearing any of the drilling and installation of the explosives or the required MILES of wiring that would be required to demolish said buildings?
7. If this is the result of a controlled demolition, how did they get the explosives on EXACTLY the right plane to correlate with the jet impact? Additionally, how were the wires leading to the explosives able to function after being exposed to a jet fuel inferno for over an hour? Why didn’t the wires and their casings melt? In other words, explain this picture:
8. If the muslims who are clearly heard on the audio recordings of air traffic control didn’t crash the planes, who did?
9. If a missile hit the Pentagon, how is it that hundreds of people saw a plane hit?
10. If remote-controlled missiles hit the Pentagon and/or the World Trade Center, where are those planes and all of the people who boarded them?
11. If musloids didn’t execute 9/11, why do they take full credit for it? Are the musloids in cahoots with “DA JOOOOOOS”?
In my experience, 9/11 truthers tend to be not very bright, antisemitic and generally creepy people, most of which follow Alex Jones in a truly disturbing, cultic fashion. I have even severed business relationships over this, because not very bright, racist (in this case against Jews – and rabidly so) and creepy is a recipe for dishonest dealings and thus financial risk to me. No thanks. Go away. Don’t let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya.
9/11 was a conspiracy. It was a conspiracy of musloids and by musloids against the United States of America. And ultimate justice will be done upon them. I hope I live to see it. Ann Barnhardt
I guess ALL Conservative bloggers have had their differences with 9-11 Truthers, I know I have.
For those not familiar with the term *Truther*, it refers to a group of people that believe the U.S. government planned, and carried out the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 against the citizens OF the USA at the World Trade Center and by attacking the Pentagon.
The terminology *Truther* refers to their DEMANDS that the truth about what really happened in those attacks be revealed. These *Truthers* don’t believe the attacks were carried out by Islamic terrorists and are usually connected to the moronic little troll named Ron Paul, and they generally support his platform and run for the presidency.
In other words, they are raving lunatics.
