Disillusioned by the t-shirt vendors

Mike Metzger, a former believer in the September 11 ‘truth’ movement, is disillusioned by the t-shirt vendors:

“The truthers will just tell you that all the experts are ‘in on it.’ Yeah, sure. Every engineer in the world is complicit in the government's murder of 3,000 people. And so are the firemen, who apparently ordered Larry Silverstein to ‘pull’ Building 7. The truthers' misrepresentation of Silverstein's quote is one of the most popular ‘facts’ to spit out, but in doing so, you are effectively in agreement that firefighters were not only involved in the controlled demolition of WTC7, but they are also aiding and abetting in the government's cover-up. Yeah, every firefighter who was out there on 9/11 is going to be complicit in the MURDER OF 343 OF THEIR FALLEN BROTHERS! To quote Loose Change co-creator Jason Bermas, ‘the firefighters are paid off.’

This is absolute horseshit, which brings me to why I've formally distanced myself from this sorry excuse for a movement. Loose Change, 9/11 Mysteries, Alex Jones, and all the other kooks out there are fucking lying about, distorting, and misrepresenting the facts to further their personal agendas. And what is their agenda, you ask? Money, in the words of Shaggy 2 Dope, ‘mutha fuckin bitch ass money.’ Not only are they desecrating 3,000 graves, but they are profiting off of it. That, my friends, makes me sick to my fuckin stomach.”


“Controlled demolitions: absolute bullshit. Now, I know there are some legitimate inconsistencies in the story that can't be proven false. My problem, and your problem as well, is that we have been blatantly misled by people who are only interested in selling dvds and t-shirts. This is supposed to be a truth movement. At this point, Alex Jones could pull every smoking gun out of ass that proves without question that 9/11 was an inside job, but it will never excuse the fact that he had lie so blatantly. Fuck you, fuck avery & bermas, fuck 9/11 mysteries, and fuck every true believer who goes out there and tells people that they've ‘done their research.’”

Free enterprise, particularly in the world of entertainment, is based on giving the buyer what he wants to buy.  This means that the story that is presented is the story that will attract the most buyers.  The story will always end up following the money, not the truth.  Eventually, some of those working in the sausage factory become disillusioned at the quality of the sausages.
