Some notes after the World Can't Wait Protest
First, and foremost, lose the 9-11 alliance. I understand that we need to be big tent and eaactually change anything, but conspiracy theorists aren't merely wrong. They get us painted with the same brush: shoddy analysis strung together with chicken-wire, grating paranoia, and an implicit embrace of a lot of American problems (Did I hear a 9-11 person say something antisemitic today? Yes.). Worse, they handed out anti-war stuff while wearing 9-11 shirts. Cut the 9-11 people loose, let them have their own events, and get back to addressing the root causes of war and poverty.Knowing who the organizers of World Can't Wait are however, perhaps they should also address that whole "Communism" thing. Some disagree:
People will think what they want. I'm so sick and tired of hearing some weak people afraid of hearing "looney conspiracy theorists" trotted out when someone mentions 9-11 was an inside job. Keep saying "911/Inside Job" people. If enough people say it, then maybe it won't seem so strange, and more people will open their mind to the possibility that 911 was indeed engineered to allow the Bush regime/neocons to accomplish their goals.Great tactic. People will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it... Where have I heard that before?
A comment checks on the success of the event:
So how was it?So the waiting resumes...
Did you drive out the Bush regime?
Let me check.
Nope, he still there.
