Standing up for unpopular truths about 9/11 comes at a personal cost

By Craig McKee
Is standing up for what you believe worth losing friends over?

Sometimes those friends don’t give you a choice. Other times, you can decide to stay away from certain subjects with certain people.

Recently I parted ways with two people I’ve known for more than a quarter of a century. Admittedly, we haven’t hung out for some time, but we do have a history. I don’t think we’re going to be adding to it, though.

In fact, there are five people I connected with on Facebook who are no longer among my online friends. The short version of the story is that they don’t much like my opinion that 9/11 was an inside job and a false flag operation. But they took it further.

Over the weekend of September 8-11, I was attending the Toronto 9/11 Hearings when I made this comment on FB: “So, according to the U.S., a “specific” and “credible” threat has emerged about a terror attack in NY. But there’s a “great deal of uncertainty” and the warning is being done “out of an abundance of caution.” When are people going to see this bullshit for what it is?? Social control and manipulation through fear!”

So far so good. One of my buddies retorted: “Yup, yet another grand scheme by American authorities. Maybe you should spend just a little of your time this weekend considering the 2700+ dead and their families?”

It was the old, “How can you disrespect the victims and their families by questioning 9/11?” argument. It’s not enough that these friends think I’m wrong, they also think that at long last I have left no sense of decency. Or something like that.

It got worse: “Craig, I consider myself open minded and have read up on the conspiracy theories (Griffin et.al.) and feel that the authors (sorry but this includes you) have a bizarre agenda to create so called ‘fact’ out of conjecture. I have yet to read anything really compelling –it all seems like acute paranoia. Sorry if you feel insulted by my comments.”

I love it when people add an apology after they’ve just trashed you. It’s as if they only meant the trashing in the nicest possible way. Of course, I’m flattered to share a “bizarre agenda” with David Ray Griffin, although I’m not sure he’s thrilled to be sharing one with me.

Did you kindly remind your ignorant friends

that the 9/11 Truth movement was STARTED by friends and families of the victims that were murdered that day?

It's TV man

I find that most people's opinions on EVERYTHING can be found in a tv commercial or on the news. The worst are those who feel wise and informed because they watch the news. Then they spout the lines they hear from whatever pundit(s) the producers have chosen to represent their particular demographic. Stand tall and don't let the idiots get you down. Take the position of knowledge, not conjecture, and laugh, literally laugh, when people say the tv lines they've been fed.

I've lost a lot

but I never thought this would be easy. I have also gained a lot, for instance, control of my mind.
Hang in there, better friends are out there!

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Why is 9/11 so hot at the moment?

This topic and religion sure divides the DP community like no others. It keeps us separated and angry with each other, and like religion, can't be proven one way or the other.
I find it strange that a country like Egypt can have a leaderless, faceless, facebook "revolution" that can overthrow a Government, but that an informed, intelligent, country like the US is like an angry headless chicken looking for a leader to march it to liberty.

It is because 9-11 CAN be proven

and if the evidence we show is not enough, how about the evidence they destroyed on 9-12? THAT WAS A FELONY.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Yes and no.

It will never be proven in a court of law. Dick Cheney will never face a human judge for his part in the deaths of nearly 3000 people on US soil, and millions of others.
I don't believe the official story, but it was difficult to come to terms with. I can understand why people refuse to "see" it.

Nothing of significance

relating to the crimes of the Regime in Power will EVER be proven in a court of law. They OWN the court of law. The only court that matters is the Court of Public Opinion, and we sway jurors to our side each and every day.

You can show people explosive (no pun intended) evidence all day long, but until you prove the means, motive, and opportunity to them, then yes, they'll continue feasting on the spoon-fed BS.

9/11 whistleblower Richard Grove has done more to help me wake up curious friends than anyone out there. Listen, learn, and pass the link forward; if the mind who receives this information doesn't have the attention span or intellectual curiosity to consume it, they never will, and aren't worth your time.

If you say so...

He has been judged and convicted and will be again, he will probably kill himself before he gets what he risked getting, but that is another thing. These criminals will do anything to avoid being caught, but that is obvious. Giving up and joining the status quo is beneath you. Your words are powerful, use them to our advantage. Keep the net free and don't let them flee. HAha
