AE911T reaches inflationary limit and names "The General Population" as guilty party

This is priceless!

AE911Truth, in a new post at Facebook yesterday, admits they may never figure out 9/11, and they assign blame!

And the culprits are:
  • The US Government
  • The Media
  • The Education System
  • The General Population
  • plenty of other institutions

In other words: Everybody, probably the whole world over.

AE911Truth has thus reached, perhaps even surpassed, the Inflationary Limit of Conspiracy Theories, at least for the "cover-up". (Of course R.Mackey already called it more than 8 years ago.)

Full post:
"A number of hypotheses have been put forth within the 9/11 Truth Movement as to what brought the three World Trade Center towers down on 9/11. Some of them don't hold a candle to the evidence for controlled demolition with the use of explosives and nano-thermite — a theory that AE911Truth has documented and supports.

But the one thing that is agreed upon by everyone in the 9/11 Truth community is that fire could not have been the main cause of the sudden, rapid, and complete destruction of WTC Buildings 1, 2, and 7. We may never know exactly how this crime was accomplished, so all we can do is put the pieces together as best we can. At the same time, we can declare with confidence that the narrative we've been fed by the government is not — and cannot possibly be — true.

The 9/11 Truth Movement is about peeling back the layers of deception and exposing the obvious fabrications. In doing this, we are up against a giant machine whose job it is to make sure the official 9/11 story is the only one that is heard and believed.

One would think that the substantial physical evidence and credible eyewitness testimony alone would prompt people into thinking differently about the events of the day.

Not so. Thus, when the public brushes off our attempts to be heard, we can thank the following guilty parties:

* The US Government: At certain levels, those in the upper echelons of power in Washington, D.C., had to have had some knowledge of what was to happen; at the very least, they allowed the event to take place. After the fact, their official reports on their so-called investigations have been proven to be full of fraudulent claims and omissions of critical data.

* The Media: Rarely do the mainstream media allow the real facts about 9/11 to be presented to their audience. When actual facts are occasionally allowed to filter through the MSM's "fake news," the presenters of these facts are treated as objects of ridicule, and the information they impart is never followed up on or verified by these pretend journalists. Lately, independent online news sites and video makers who dare to find and tell the truth about 9/11 (and other false flags) are being removed at an alarming rate by social media site owners — YouTube being the primary example.

* The Education System: Most students in grade 12 or below weren't alive on September 11, 2001. When their teachers bring up the subject, they defer to the simplistic, government-sanctioned version of events (for example, http://bit.ly/2oW3GX0). Some university professors have been relieved of their teaching posts (and even their tenure) for trying to educate pupils on this politically charged issue.

* The General Population: There seems to have been a major shift in people’s attitudes since 9/11 when it comes to questioning the government in general — from speaking freely about controversial subjects to self-censorship. If one dares express doubts about how the towers came down, he is made to feel unpatriotic. Moreover, so many unconstitutional rights-taking acts have been passed by Congress that the populace is afraid that if they criticize authority figures or question the party line on 9/11, federal agents or state/county/local police (the latter increasingly controlled the feds) will "come and get us and lock us up." Thus, many are wary of even uttering the word "9/11" in polite company.

There are plenty of other institutions to blame for suppressing 9/11 Truth. We who have worked hard to hold some of these entities to account still have some heavy lifting to do. We can't abandon the effort, because the worldwide consequence of doing nothing is more tyranny, more corruption at the top, more loss of privacy and legal rights and peace.

It's up to each of us to decide what role we will play in bringing the truth to light. Of one thing we can be sure: Being open to the truth about 9/11 and being courageous enough to tell that truth isn't an option if we want our children and grandchildren to live in a just, upright society. No, it's not an option. It's a must."

Talk about hitting bottom and still digging. The clown car that is 9/11 Truth just doesn't know when to quit - the tires are flat, its out of gas, gears are grinding, smoke pouring out, the passengers just sit there with their whoopie cushions and palm buzzers and squirting flowers and yet they think they're getting somewhere. Funny as hell.

This clear show their disconnect with reality. Yeah......no one questions or speaks out against the government since 9/11...........

It must be tough to compete with "a giant machine whose job it is to make sure the official 9/11 story is the only one that is heard" when all you have is stuff like YouTube; a giant machine whose job it is to let any and every crank trumpet their idiotic 9/11 ideas from the rooftops.

It really is the final straw when even the general population are in on it, though. Like something out of the twilight zone. Imagine what it must cost to pay off hundreds of millions of shills.

Couldn't help but notice they said fire could not have brought down the Twin Towers when no one is claiming that just fire brought down the Twin Towers.

16+ years and they still can't get the fundamentals correct.

I think they've explored new territory in the direction of the inflationary limit. It seems that they're working towards an endgame where concealing the truth about 9/11 becomes not just a purpose, but the primary purpose, not just of the US Government, but of the entire US nation. Even Ryan Mackey didn't foresee them going quite that far.

AE has no interest in any technical explanation which:

is not a government conspiracy involving CD

is not interested in any complete coherent technical explanation

All they do is attempt to create doubt in anything which is not coming from the truth movement... Doubt drives their paranoid conspiracy views. They and their supporters are usually ignorant and easily accept what seem possible. They exploit people who don't trust government or media.

Is this, then, their formal complaint that "Everybody got the memo except me!"?

It reminds me of the joke where a motorist hears on traffic radio the warning that someone is driving on the freeway in the wrong direction, and he thinks in bewilderment: "What do they mean, someone - it's thousands!!"

Hey, hang on. Are they trying to make out that all those conspirators are American? What about the rest of us??? Aren't we allowed to be part of the vast imaginary conspiracy too?

I don't know about you, Oystein, but I feel seriously under-appreciated right now.

Well, occasionally someone sees the highlighted bit and concludes I must be a closet Jew, and they grace me with the title "shill", "traitor", "vermin" or somesuch.

Then again, I am slightly disappointed that Gage's latest hit piece doesn't have a nod towards the anti-semitic majority of Twoofdom, or I my have missed it.

LOL

So what should be taught at the university level to prime us for The Truth about 9/11?

How about some AE9/11 approved textbook problems to supplement our sources.

Inflationary limit? Don't think so. Next up:

A year or so ago I would have argued that point, but having signed up to youtube recently and spending quite a bit of time talking about quite varied political issues there, and finding out for myself just how much anti-semitism there still is around today, I fear you're probably right. 'The Jews' are blamed for everything from pollution to how the milkshakes at McDonald's aren't as tasty as they used to be. Very depressing - I hold on to the hope that most of them are just trolling.

No, the fries being cooked in vegetable shortening instead of beef tallow is the most depressing. I just listened to a podcast where they re-created the original McDonald's fries and taste-tested people vs. the crap they have today. Trans-fat police are ruining everything.

Nah, just order two. Can't do anything about the milkshakes, though... (mind you, I did make that up).

On the contrary. In yet another McHebrew plot, it's getting bigger. The larger size is designed to keep us fat and complacent while sucking more money from our wallets. Soon we'll see lines of super-sized people waddling into the FEMA camps, their fate sealed.

I believe the new age name for it is "gem" now, so as to seem not so blatantly racist...

Does that FB page delete dissenting views? I left a message there thanking the General Populace for stopping the 9/11 movement . I wonder for how long it's going to stay.

Also left a few questions and sarcastic remarks. I'll go prepare some popcorn and await replies.


Edit: oh, and it feels so weird and good to be posting here again. I wish people would go back to posting on forums more instead of Face and Instagram. Imagine that, a web site that isn't driven by greed, and which doesn't siphon facts about you, learn everything about you by means of algorithm, and sell all of it off to greedy corporations. You get to post on forums without having to hook it up to Google, or sell your entire life, or have it manipulate you into staying there for as long as possible. What a strange idea.
