9/11: Views from the left coast

Six years on from the 9/11 attacks of 2001, Canadians still stand in solidarity with their southern neighbors.

Of course, not everyone is on the same page. Mobilization Against War and Occupation, based out of Vancouver, still spews the stale lies about the Taliban being a popular resistance movement valiantly fighting vampiric foreign devils in NATO uniforms. Osama bin Ladin’s old allies in the war on civilization may triumph in the end, but will they remember to thank MAWO on V-Day?

Ah, well. I’m sure CUPE is happy to have their support in their revolutionary struggle against the ruthless oppression of Vancouver City Hall.

Then there’s the Republic of East Vancouver. Kevin Potvin’s socialist rag rails ceaselessly against a 9/11-inspired Islamophobia – a terrible pattern of prejudice that happily for our local Muslim community does not actually exist. Nenonen, take a pill: Calling Muslim terrorists who kill innocent people (mostly other Muslims) barbaric is not bigoted – it’s just the way it is.

Of course, entire communities of useful idiots have mobilized around the banner of Vancouver 9/11 Truth, which includes as an unalterable provision of its constitution the following:

In the case of Sept 11, 2001, there exists an overwhelming body of evidence suggesting that (1) the attacks of that day could not have been carried out without complicity from within the highest levels of the US government, and (2) the official “investigation” was in fact a cover-up, by US authorities and media alike. The truth about 9/11 is not known, not because it is unknowable, but because it has been concealed.

Note to nutbars: Even Noam Chomsky calls the theory of US involvement in 9/11 hogwash.

Way to push the edge of the local lunatic fringe a little further out there, team!

    I can’t take any person or any group seriously when the first thing i see on a site is a clenched fist and a quote from that great humanitarian Ché Guevara…

    Remember kids, it’s only the wicked white west who commits ‘murder’…

    When the left does it for their own ends, they are mere statistics in the great struggle..just ask Stalin..

    Perhaps if we are really lucky, they will put their actions where their mouths are, and form an international brigade..just like in 1936..

    Let’s see what you’ve got comrade..

    Thanks for the reading suggestions. You’re an idiot, BTW.

    Oh, dear. Do you go up to random people on the street and talk to them like that, or is it only when you are cloaked in the anonymity of the web?

    Cheers.

    The 9-11 conspiracy people tick me off. I agree Bush has hijacked 9-11 (pun intended) for his own aims which existed before the World Trade Center attacks, but to say that because Bush is abusing people’s anger over 9-11 means that he set it all up and it’s all fake is disgusting.

    People used to believe in dragons and Zesus, so I suppose conspiracy theories are the new faith.
