Truthers Can Go Suck It

I was actually prepping my annual post to honor the memory of 9/11 victims and reminisce on how quickly life moves (and can be taken) and was writing down notes in my book about the fact that 11 years ago I was working a terrible dead–end retail job while still in the first year of mourning my mother. I was going to go on about how I was in the wrong relationship (which ended shortly afterward) and how now, as a happily married father of the best children in the world I shudder to think that such evil still seeks to harm them for no greater crime than existing.

Then I started to think about evil while in the car while listening to stories about a US Diplomat being killed in Libya while our embassy was stormed in Egypt. The bad guys are still knocking, and they’re not afraid of us.

Then my mind wandered to conspiracy theorists, as it does every 9/11. The people with such a loose grip on the obvious truth that they favor of the notion that some small group of Americans engineered 9/11/2001 as a way to [insert insane reasoning here], while ignoring the fact there are large multi–national terrorist groups that want to watch the world burn.

We’re up against an army of Jokers with no one willing to be Batman.

And for a moment, I hated them. Not just disagreed with them or found their ideas laughable. Hated them for existing.

As I’ve said before, I’m no stranger to conspiracies. I’m familiar with their structure the way a composer is familiar with music; as such, I find it frustrating when these rank amateurs try to play.

But I realize conspiracy theories are, in no small way, in our DNA. We want to believe them because they give mental order to a sometimes disorderly world. If all the conspiracy theories are true, the world is a little less scary because we figured out the pattern. I’ve said that before.

Still, it bothers me because Truthers are now holding regular jobs on television, like that half–wit “Touré.”

So as part of my rememberance of 9/11 victims, their families and all of us who still mourn that horror, allow me to say in no uncertain terms:

Truthers Can Go Suck It

Because they’re showing nothing but disrespect for the truth that, in the words of one film, “Some men just want to watch the world burn.”

  1. Truthers. Ugh. They bother me. In their mind the US Government supposedly paid billions of dollars to have buildings blown up and thousands of US citizens killed on US soil all executed to perfection with no one saying a word, but they forget that the same government they claim could do all of that couldn’t pay an $800 tab from a hooker that crippled the Secret Service. Fuck you, Truthers.


  2. I kind of, sort of knew someone who turned out to be a truther. We weren’t friends but we got along, and it was something I tried to look past.

    But I found his opinions to be despicable, and – more so – the fervor behind them to to be utterly pathetic. I know that he was going through a deeply unhappy period in his life, with several major events shifting beneath his feet…epicly public martial trauma, crushing band break-up, followed by a full blown mid-life crisis.

    I can only imagine that he had cracked so hard that this was where he chose to channel all of his pain.

    It was strange. The guy kind of went nuts.

    But anyway: Fuck. Him. He pissed all over the grief of every victim’s family.


  3. These people (truthers) don’t know the damage they do. I’m the wife of a currently deployed soldier. There is no sympathy from these people. They are the same people declaring our troops are murders. My husband hasn’t left the FOB, how, I ask, has he killed anyone? Maybe time, staring at the walls but certainly not people. These people don’t know what its like to live the horror every day. Whether you lost someone that day, or lost someone to the war that followed or live in fear of the person who knocks on your door, there are plenty of people in this country who live with 9/11 every day of their lives. Truthers can suck it!
