I really cannot see the attraction.
if you know me at all you may be aware of my feelings on the so-called 9/11 “truth” movement which in my opinion is snake oil to sucker the gullible emotionally and financially at best and at worst a gateway to fascism. Either way it has nothing to do with the truth about 9/11 and in fact hampers any efforts to investigate the real facts of that day and its leading proponents, Alex Jones, David Icke, Nick Kollerstrom etc make their living through utter parasitism.
Given this I found this hilarious. One of them was called up in court for refusal to pay his TV license on the grounds that the BBC is a “terrorist organisation”, they thought it could be a chance to air their “views” in a “court of law” (actually only a tiny magistrate’s court). Things did not go according to plan however.
A couple of Mondays ago, on a cold, colorless morning at 9am sharp, I found myself in the singular predicament of joining the back of a queue of around fifteen 9/11 “Truthers” in a dismal magistrates’ court in Horsham, a small English town about an hour from London. These Truthers were mostly male, middle aged, and—I’m sorry to say—a little stinky.
Their conversation sounded something like this:
“… you believe that you’ll believe anything…”
“… Osama Bin Laden, don’t make me laugh…”
And the delightful…
“… other than the lizard thing—which I personally don’t have any great problem with—everything else that man has said has been spot-on…”
