Why do Jeremy Scahill and other smart Lefties run from 9/11 Truth?Submitted by AtlantaIconoclast on Tue, 03/04/2014 - 02:06
Hint: It's not because they have really examined the evidence and find the govt's case very strong. It has something to do with convenience. Why step out on the ledge, right? It is one thing to say one is anti war, but it is another to admit how utterly corrupt our system has become, AND to fully face the truly ugly side of American life. It is the deniers of 9/11 Truth who practice wishful and fearful thinking, not the other way around. They just can't handle it. Well, their pocketbooks can't.
This article tackles the problem of leftist gatekeepers for 9/11. Jeremy Scahill may be a great advocate for non-interventionism, but he undercuts his own critique, by displaying such naivete about what happened on 9/11. Fact is, as this author argues, he and almost every other journalist in America run as fast as they can from 9/11 Truth, because it is a job killer. The Nation, and other so called progressive outlets will not tolerate someone pointing to Israel's role in 9/11 for example, for that would be considered "anti-Semitic." So this leaves us in a difficult situation. I want to applaud Scahill, but I find it hard to believe such a smart man has really taken an honest look at 9/11.
Notice how none of these lefties like Scahill ever address the solid evidence for Israel's involvement in documentaries like Ryan Dawson's "9/11 and War by Deception" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pK6VLFdWJ4I. Rather, they talk about Loose Change and other well funded but kosher documentaries.
