Reddit Turns 9/11 Discussion Into a Leper Colony

Robert Wenzel over at the Target Liberty blog reports that Reddit has decided to “quarantine” the 9/11 Truth board. He posted this tweet:

Reddit tells us if want the truth about the event, we should surf over to the government to the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States website. 

It is a sincerely astounding document that puts forth all kinds of conspiracy theories—for instance, how Arabs supposedly violated the laws of physics—and these assorted fairy tales and scary bedtime stories are expected to be accepted without question, lest one become a “truther” and face the scorn of the state and now social media. 

The near perfect “pancake” or “gravitational” collapse of the WTC is impossible, to say nothing about the absurd theory jet fuel melted steel girders. 

And yet, thanks to the government and its tethered media, if you question the science of the collapse you’re deluded a “tinfoil hatter,” maybe dangerous, an extremist. 

It’s interesting Reddit decided to call this a quarantine. It has locked down the board in the hope the contagion of questions will not spread. It is like sending lepers to a remote island in the South Pacific. 

Not that it matters. For most of the American people, 9/11 is a distant memory. Its horrific legacy—a surveillance and police state, the permanence of war and war crimes—has faded into the white noise of social media. 

The occasional reappearance of the truther virus must not be allowed, not by Reddit or the government, for as Robert Gates, the former CIA boss and “defense” secretary under Bush and Obama said: “The American people know what they saw with their own eyes on September 11, 2001. To suggest any kind of government conspiracy in the events of that day goes beyond the pale.”

  1. It’s all a matter of perspective. We consider not being allowed on CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post, NY Times, and their phony alternative sites, etc. as being forced in to the ghetto? That’s would imply they are the promised land of all things milk and honey.

    Since when did we need to consider them the standard? We should be honored to stay away from their filth. Let them be the ones on the outside looking in. Turn this around and not let them dictate what the standards of acceptance are. Close down your accounts with these buffoons. Stop patronizing their sites. Let them be an echo chamber of their own delusional masses. They need us more than we need them.

    Remember that.
