On his MSNBC program Hardball this evening, Chris Matthews went on a well-founded tirade against Donald Trump and his pandering to the uninformed, right wing Birthers who insist, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that Barack Obama is not an American.. Sadly, in doing so, he emerged once again as a gate keeper extraordinaire who trivializes and ridicules the near decade of research and discovery by members of the 9/11 Truth Movement.
In his attack against Donald Trump’s strategy of luring extreme right wing voters to back his possible run for president, Matthews claimed there was no difference between “Birthers” on the right and “Truthers’ on the left. Bullcrap, Chris. Sheer, unadulterated bullcrap.
First, and foremost, the 9/11 Truth Movement is neither uninformed nor political. It is comprised of people around the globe - from every spectrum of political thought - who refuse to accept the unsubstantiated and seriously flawed official account of the events of 9/11, and who have raised legitimate questions about that account.
Second, those who have spent years seeking TRUTH, are not making accusations about “George Bush blowing up the World Trade Center,” as Matthews suggests. They are raising questions, requesting an impartial inquiry, and challenging a litany of myths that purport to explain the events before, during and after the attack of 9/11.
