D.C. Rally Completely Ignores 9-11
By Victor Thorn
During his Aug. 28 “Restoring Honor” rally attended by this writer in Washington, D.C., FOX News “conservative” commentator Glenn Beck told the hundreds of thousands in attendance, “Tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.” He added, “We cannot coexist with evil.” Both of these platitudes sound appealing—if it weren’t for the fact that Beck, as events have shown, too often does not practice what he preaches. For example, with the ninth anniversary of 9-11 this month, Beck did not tell one iota of truth that day in Washington regarding the 21st century’s most grievous terror attack on U.S. soil.
Beck repeatedly tells his television and live audiences, “Boldly question everything.” But not only hasn’t he questioned the government’s 9-11 conspiracy theory about Osama bin Laden and 19 Muslim cave-dwellers being the culprits behind that attack, he actually attacks those who boldly question that theory. An example was early this year when Beck entrapped former Texas gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina on her open-minded 9-11 views, even though 9-11 surely was not a campaign issue when Medina’s poll ratings shot upward and incumbent Gov. Rick Perry appeared to be politically threatened. Beck’s attack helped ruin Medina’s candidacy.
While delivering his Aug. 28 address before the Lincoln Memorial, Beck urged his devotees to “forget about our past scars and look forward.” However, genuinely honorable Americans cannot so easily overlook the real scars of 9-11, especially when a gigantic pit still exists at “ground zero” in southern Manhattan where the World Trade Center twin towers and WTC building 7 stood until they were destroyed that day in 2001.
This constant reminder is compounded by two other “scars” in Afghanistan and Iraq, in the form of never-ending military occupations, where the fresh blood of innocent civilians and U.S. soldiers keeps dripping. Toward the end of his D.C. speech, Beck proclaimed, “Greatness is found in doing the hard thing.”
Here, he was correct. When AFP and scores of other 9-11 researchers keep trying hard to ascertain the truth about that horrifying morning nine years ago, their efforts often cause others to heap scorn, enmity and outright threats upon them.
Despite the backlash, these individuals hold firm to their convictions and principles. They’re the truly “honorable” men and women—not Glenn Beck dummies. In contrast—as his avoidance of the 9-11 issue at the D.C. rally showed—Beck has taken the dishonorable path of least resistance when it comes to this subject. He either attacks or ignores those who ask even the most basic 9-11 questions.
Thus, establishing the identities of the mass murderers who orchestrated and engineered 9-11, and understanding the physical means by which the crime was carried out at three locations, is made that much more difficult to pursue in a meaningful, productive way. In this sense, Beck does not have much trouble coexisting with evil, especially when he simultaneously puts millions of dollars in his pockets from his FOX News salary.
