This Is How Paranoid 9/11 Truthers Are | September 21, 2009

They think Glenn Beck is an “operative working for the Pentagon and probably takes his orders from the Army’s Psychological Operations Command.”

Yep. That’s a quote.

In a new article on Infowars.com, Kurt Nimmo actually makes an interesting case against Glenn Beck. (Interesting, as in, far-fetched and stupid, but also, like, “huh, that’s something no one else thinks.”) The basic point: Glenn Beck apologiazed to libertarians last week for spending the first part of his career making fun of them from the radio and a low-rated CNN Headline News show. They say Glenn’s acting skills are actually meant to destroy libertarians, not become them.

Here’s the apology:

Nimmo, in his article, says Glenn Beck is not only a Pentagon operative, but that his apology to libertarians last week was manufactured for political — not monetary — purposes. Also, Beck started the 912 Protests in order to allow the left to denounce it and have the protestors look stupid while simultaneously undermining the “real” Tea Party protests (which were originally started for Ron Paul and the Paultards.) His (and the Pentagon’s) plan is to destroy all the real “Patriot” (Paultard) movements.

Beck’s so-called 912 Project was designed to discredit the Tea Party demonstration in D.C. earlier this month — a movement already substantially co-opted by establishment Republicans — and give so-called “progressives” a chance to malign and denounce the movement and characterize it as a Republican attempt to undermine Obama and the Democrats. In other words, steer it back into the safe zone of the false right-left paradigm and prevent it from actually accomplishing anything.

Mostly, they’re never going to forgive Glenn Beck because during last year’s election, he denounced Ron Paul and the entire 9/11 Truth movement in favor of Mitt Romney and John McCain. Basically, Beck was a neo-con up until the time it wasn’t cool to be one anymore.

I have a much easier explanation for the psychopathic Alex Jones and his writers: Glenn Beck is looking at opinion polls as a way of making himself. Lots of people are fed up with the government — but they’re not exactly flocking toward the Republicans, or anyone, really. Barack Obama is down to about 52% in most polls, but he’s not going to get much lower. Thirty percent of Americans are Republican (as they supported George Bush until the end; remember that?). The rest of the country feels disenfranchised because they basically hate everything. These are the people Glenn Beck is after. Many of them are simply paranoid because that’s how they are. Some of them are racists and are going to believe anything bad about Barack Obama simply because he’s black (see: birthers), and some are just getting involved in politics because they now see what their indifference brought us over the last eight years. What were once indifference-ers are now crazy-ers.

Make no mistake: Glenn Beck knows what he’s doing, but he’s not taking orders from the government in order to stop the 9/11 Truthers.

That’s actually really stupid to think.
