Putting a Mosque Next to WTC-7 Is…BLASPHEMY!

Guest column by Rev. Darvis P. Fuddlesnapper, Pastor, Church of Jesus H. Christ Warmonger

When I first heard that them thar Islamics wanted to put up a mosque next to that big hole where the Twin Towers use to be, it made me so mad I almost split my britches. And I preached me a sermon calling on the Almighty to strike down the mayor and the Islamics and all the rest of the blasphemers.

But after church, one of them nice Christian ladies who graces the front pew every Sunday (I call her “Our Lady of the Cleavage” but please don’t mention that to my wife Ethel) told me the mosque site is actually a lot closer to World Trade Center Building 7 than it is to the hole where the Towers used to be.

Holy tarnation! A mosque next to Building 7!

You know what that means, don’t you? That means those pesky Islamicals are THANKING ALLAH for the MIRACULOUS DESTRUCTION OF BUILDING 7!

Those darn Muslimists know full well that Building 7 was never hit by a plane, and only had modest fires on a couple of floors, when suddenly — WHAM! — it came straight down at free-fall speed for no particular reason around 5:20 in the afternoon of 9/11. For the Islamics, the destruction of Building 7 was a miracle from Allah! No wonder they’re putting up a shrine next door!

What’s worse, those Islamics probably think it was Allah who told the BBC that Building 7 was going to collapse. The Muslimists always say “Only Allah knows the future.” For them, the BBC’s report that Building 7 had collapsed, twenty minutes before it happened, is another miracle.

Are all you good warmongering Christians of America gonna let ALLAH take credit for the miraculous collapse of Building 7, and the BBC’s miraculous foreknowledge?  

We’ve got to stop the Building 7 Mosque.

More Lies from “Cosmos”

Updated 9/15/2010

Cosmos spent the week before the 9/11/10 anniversary flooding the internet with this attack on me: http://911truthnews.com/a-response-to-kevin-barretts-attacks/

I wrote a response, but decided not to post it (thanks to Carol Brouillet for the good advice) until after the anniversary. Here it is:

More lies from “Cosmos”
A Response to the Latest Cosmos Hit Piece

by Kevin Barrett

Cosmos has been posting vicious lies about me, under various fake names, at his TruthAction blog since 2007. Yet he writes: “I personally had never spoken out against Barrett until very recently…”  I guess if you maintain a “Barrett promoting disinfo” thread at your website for three years, and post vast amounts of defamatory material under fake names, you’re not saying anything “personally.”

Cosmos claims that I “bizarrely” accused him of being “a ‘wrecker’ getting him (Barrett) kicked off conference lineups…”  In fact, I never said that Cosmos or anyone else had ever succeeded in getting me kicked off any conference lineup. I simply reported what Ken O’Keefe told me: That some lunatic calling himself “Cosmos” had — completely out of the blue — emailed Ken a long series of false and/or misleading attacks on me in an attempt to wreck the Debunking 9/11 conference in London this past July.   Instead of clearly confirming or denying this, Cosmos invents a straw-man distortion of what I actually said, and calls this charge “bizarre” and “venomous.”  Yet he has never specifically denied sending the attack email to Ken O’Keefe. Bizarre, venomous…but true!

Cosmos, if you didn’t send that (bizarre, venomous) email to Ken O’Keefe, just say so! Then we’ll figure out whether you’re lying once again, or whether there are two lunatics named “Cosmos” out there stalking me.

Along with his lame attempt to blow smoke over his email to O’Keefe attempting to wreck the London symposium, Cosmos invents another straw-man lie about the issue of his not-so-uncle Mickey. According to Cosmos, I charged him with “hiding the fact that it was only a family friend who was murdered on that day” (not his actual uncle). In fact, I never charged him with HIDING anything. I just pointed out that he has, on several occasions, claimed that he lost his uncle on 9/11, while failing to disclose that the person in question was not his uncle. His repeated references to “Uncle Mickey” have led many of the people who have heard of Cosmos to believe that he is a 9/11 family member.  Within the 9/11 truth community, and in American society in general, “9/11 family member” is a very privileged category. So while Cosmos sometimes does mention that “Uncle Mickey” was not really his uncle, and sometimes doesn’t, the upshot is that he has deceptively created the impression that he is a 9/11 family member when in fact he is not.

Here are three recordings of Cosmos referring to “Uncle Mickey” without mentioning that Mickey was not his uncle.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6d7uGdaSM7o
http://www.truthnews.com.au/radio/wordpress/?p=668

Regarding the latter: “In an interview with Hereward Fenton on Truth News Radio Australia last November 11th, 2009, Cosmos repeats the lie that his ‘uncle’ was murdered. When the interviewer follows up and asks him about his uncle, Cosmos does nothing to disabuse him from being under the impression that it was his blood uncle.”    –http://wtcdemolition.com/blog/node/2963

Here is Cosmos’s original bio at 9/11 Truth News: “Cosmos is an artist and musician whose uncle was murdered in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.” 

After spewing doubletalk non-denial denials about the “Uncle Mickey” issue, Cosmos finally confesses: “And quite frankly,  if I choose to refer to Mickey in the way that I remember him,  then I will damn well do so. For me to call Mark Rothenberg my ‘uncle Mickey’ is 100% accurate – that’s who he was. And history will not look kindly on individuals who have attacked those who lost loved ones on 9/11.” In other words, by falsely claiming that he lost an uncle on 9/11, Cosmos thinks he can get away with slandering other people and wrecking 9/11 truth events without anybody saying boo. In Cosmos’s world, family members — especially fake ones — are off-limits to criticism, no matter what they do.

Original post:


re: “Is Cosmos Living Out a Double Identity,  as an OCT Supporter As Well As A Truther?”

Some self-styled 9/11 truth activist who hides behind the pseudonym “Cosmos” apparently has enough time on his hands to devote himself to sabotaging my speaking events. A few years back, I was on the short list for a speaking tour of Australia, but got passed over because John Bursill of 911truthOz, who says he’s a friend of “Cosmos,” believed “Cosmos”‘s lies about me.

Others who have invited me to speak in New York, California, and elsewhere have also been inundated with scurrilous emails from “Cosmos” and his friends. For example, Sander Hicks, organizer of last year’s We Demand Transparency conference, told me last year that he had been deluged by emails from the usual suspects. Sander added that Cosmos buddy Jon Gold had ranted, raved, and threatened him, saying “If he (Kevin Barrett) attends your little shindig, then I will never trust you again. It’s really that simple.”

This summer, Ken O’Keefe told me that “Cosmos,” Brian Good, and the rest of the tribe had deluged him with emails about what a terrible guy I was and how Ken shouldn’t share a stage with me in London. Fortunately, Ken was willing to devote several hours to looking into their allegations, which, he concluded, were false and/or misleading. “Why are these people harassing you, Kevin?” he asked me over Thai food at a West London restaurant not far from his home. I told him the truth: I really don’t know.

I added that if I were a paranoid conspiracy theorist, I would suspect that the whole wrecking crew–“Arabesque,” “Col. Sparks,” “Cosmos,” Brian Good, Jon Gold, Michael Woolsey, and Victoria Ashley — were agents of influence. That’s basically what Webster Tarpley said at the 9/11 truth conference in New York in 2007.  Barrie Zwicker, who like Tarpley (and unlike the members of the wrecking crew) is a brilliant, accomplished voice of 9/11 truth, also suspects foul play. According to Barrie Zwicker “(the 9/11) perpetrators have assigned disinformation specialists to attack the honest citizen detectives of CIT.The suspected “disinformation specialists” he is referring to are essentially the same people and anonymous entities listed above…the same people who devote enormous amounts of time to sabotaging my speaking events, asking bookstores not to carry my books, and in some cases physically stalking my wife and me.

Now, Adam Syed has discovered evidence to back these suspicions.  In his new article “Is Cosmos Living Out a Double Identity,  as an OCT Supporter As Well As A Truther?” Syed shows that “Cosmos” repeatedly claimed to be the nephew of 9/11 victim Mickey Rothenberg, before changing his story and saying that Rothenberg was just a family friend. Is “Cosmos” really Andrew Bernstein, an OCT supporter who also claims to be a nephew of Rothenberg? Maybe, maybe not. But any way you slice it, “Cosmos” has hidden his true identity and lied about being a family member, while devoting his time to sabotaging other 9/11 truth activists and events.

Why anyone would trust this character an inch is beyond me.

Stanley’s Fish Tale

Last Tuesday I invited the well-known scholar and NY Times columnist Stanley Fish to join me on the radio. Since he hasn’t gotten back to me, I assume he isn’t interested. That would be fine — except that this is the guy who lied about me, and thereby helped trash my academic career, in a huge article on the op-ed page of the Sunday New York Times!

Below is my email to Fish. I’m not holding my breath waiting for a reply.

-KB

Dear Stanley Fish,

I saw your article about the 9/11 conference in the Catskills, and would like to extend an invitation to talk about it, and about your essay “There’s No Such Thing As Free Speech,” on one of my radio shows.   Current openings include Tuesdays beginning August 31 noon to 1 pm Eastern, and Saturdays beginning September 4th 7-8 pm Eastern.

I have read and admired quite a bit of your work over the years — but did not admire your NY Times op-ed that slandered me and contributed to destroying my academic career

That op-ed falsely claimed that I was teaching “Conspiracy Theories 101” in my Religion and Culture of Islam course at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and that I “shared with students” my “strong conviction that the destruction of the World Trade Center was an inside job perpetrated by the American government.” This is an outright lie. In that course, the majority of assigned readings on 9/11 took the official story for granted, while only one directly questioned it; and I had intended to present the various views neutrally and let the students come to their own conclusions. (Watch one of my students make this point to a smarmy, condescending Bill O’Reilly here.)

I most certainly was not “sharing” any of my strong personal convictions, on 9/11 or anything else, with students. Had it not been for the media circus staged by Republican state legislator Steve Nass, my students would never have known that I held any strong convictions about what happened on 9/11. None of the students from the many classes I taught in previous semesters ever knew that I held any strong convictions about 9/11, unless they encountered them outside of the classroom — which as far as I know none of them did, since Nass had not yet forced them on the world at large.

At the time, I called your attention to the fact that your op-ed was based on a false premise. Your response, as I recall, was evasive.

Having admired the clarity of thought displayed in many of your writings, I am disappointed by your confused response to the controversy about whether I had the right to express my strong convictions about 9/11 on my own time — not in the classroom — while teaching at the University of Wisconsin. A parallel confusion, it seems to me, informs the pages of “There’s No Such Thing As Free Speech.” In fact, there is such a thing as free speech, it is protected by the First Amendment and by the doctrine of academic freedom, it has been systematically violated since 9/11 (including in my case) and you have contributed significantly to its violation.

I propose that we spend an hour on the radio, half of it devoted to an exchange about why each of us hold the views we do about 9/11, and the other half about the question of free speech.

Thank you for considering this, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Kevin

I Graciously Accept Rolling Stone’s Obnoxiousness Award – Now Where’s My Check?

Since an excited friend emailed me that I had won Matt Taibbi’s “Most Obnoxious Thing on the Internet This Month” award, I have been looking forward to my $10,000 check and working on my acceptance speech. Here is a draft of that speech:

Ladies and gentlemen…I stand before you humbled, awed, and amazed to have been recognized as the author of the most obnoxious thing on the internet.

My late father, a two-time Olympic medalist, had to triumph over thousands of talented and determined racing sailors. Muhammad Ali, to become “the greatest” (boxer of all time), had to beat out hundreds of thousands who have tried their fists at boxing. But to become the recognized leader in internet obnoxiousness…that, I am proud to say, is a nonpareil achievement.

Today, we are living in a world in which literally billions of people are competing in internet obnoxiousness:  a world where cyber-hate and flame wars and even death threats abound, a world where internet porn takes up the lion’s share of the bandwidth, a world in which a Google search for “Palin boob job” returns 110,000 hits. To even place in the top ten million, in internet obnoxiousness, is a magnificent accomplishment.

How, you may ask, did I manage this astonishing feat? To what do I owe my supreme success? What does it take to reach the coveted number one position?

As it turns out, my triumph — for all it owed to hard work, pluck, determination, and a certain natural ability to be really, REALLY obnoxious — finally boiled down to one thing: pure, unadultrated luck.

Taibbi, explaining why he felt compelled to award me the Obnoxiousness Prize, gave me high marks for my basic concept: the proposal for a taxpayer-funded mega-mosque at Ground Zero sporting Twin Minarets to replace the nanothermite-demolished Towers, erected as a monumental apology for falsely blaming Muslims for 9/11. But as it turns out, that wasn’t enough. It was my proposal for a 9/11 truth museum that did the trick.

Taibbi explains:

He goes on. Note the excellent suggestion that the Mosque should house an “unflattering wax figurine” of former 9/11 landlord Larry Silverstein:

This mosque should house a 9/11 Truth Museum documenting the evidence that 9/11 was carried out by U.S. and Israeli insiders, not Muslims. It could include such artifacts as the laughably bogus “last will and testament of Mohammed Atta,” pieces of airplane wreckage from earlier crashes that were planted at the alleged 9/11 crash sites, WTC structural steel samples showing melting and evaporation caused by explosives, videos and other objects seized from the Israeli Mossad team that filmed and celebrated their colleagues’ destruction of the World Trade Center, unflattering wax figures of such 9/11 villains as Dick Cheney, Larry Silverstein, and Benjamin Netanyahu, and samples of nanothermite-laden World Trade Center dust.

So not only should there be a Mosque at Ground Zero, the Mosque should include an unflattering and undoubtedly absurdly anti-Semitic wax caricature of the Towers’ Jewish landlord. If that isn’t the “This one goes to eleven” moment of conspiratorial quackery, I’m not sure what is. If anyone else has found something more offensive in the Ground Zero discussion, let me know, but for now this is my clubhouse leader.

What incredible luck! When I wrote the piece, I had randomly selected Cheney, Silverstein and Netanyahu (I might as easily have included Rumsfeld and Myers) as 9/11 villains, purely on the basis of evidence for their complicity in 9/11, without any thought of their ethnicity. In fact, when I try to imagine unflattering wax figures of these three, the one that comes to my mind’s eye is the naturally-hideous Cheney. But fortunately for me, when Matt Taibbi hears the name “Larry Silverstein,” he immediately imagines a stereotypical caricature of a hook-nosed Jew. Apparently it was Taibbi’s own obnoxiously bigoted imagination, in purely fortuitous juxtaposition with my own undeniable genius for relatively innocent obnoxiousness, that carried the day.

So, while I am flattered by Taibbi’s Obnoxiousness Award, I am not sure that it is not Taibbi himself who deserves it. Here are a few questions for him.

Hey Matt! Why are you so quick to imagine Silverstein, whose fingerprints are all over 9/11, as a stereotypical hook-nosed Jew…and then to condemn your own depraved imagination by projecting it on me? Are you equally disgusted by the millions of stereotypically “Muslim” images of Bin Laden–who, by the way,  repeatedly denied any involvement in 9/11 and deplored the attacks as un-Islamic before his death in December 2001?

Since Taibbi is experiencing a powerful inner conflict between the anti-Jewish stereotypes he cannot help entertaining, and a superego commanding him “don’t say anything negative about Jews” (actually that may be the media-dominators he works for, rather than his superego, issuing the command), I wonder how he would react to this article in Veterans Today:  Israeli Control of America

For the next Obnoxiousness Award, I nominate Israeli Control of America–which, unlike my mega-mosque proposal, actually DOES talk about Jews and Jewish power in America. The only question is whether it is the article itself, or the list of facts it contains, that is disturbing.

Anyway…In gratitude for his generous decision to honor me with the coveted Obnoxiousness Award, I have coined a new expression and named it after my esteemed benefactor.

Taibbi’s truism: When truth is obnoxious, only the obnoxious can tell the truth.

WHO’S Obnoxious? Joshua Blakeney and Ian Henshall on the Kevin Barrett Show

Tuesday, August 24th, 9-10 a.m. Pacific (noon-1 pm Eastern) on http://NoLiesRadio.org, to be archived here a few hours after broadcast…


Ian Hensh
all, Coordinator of Reinvestigate 9/11 and author of 9/11 Revealed: The New Evidence, and Joshua Blakeney, Department of Globalization Studies, University of Lethbridge, will join me to discuss the role of provocation and controversy in the 9/11 truth movement…specifically, Josh’s cruel, witty and merciless attack on the obnoxious war criminal propagandist and over-the-top Islamophobe Christopher Hitchens, which elicited a major article in Canada’s leading neocon rag, the National Post. UK 9/11 truth leader Ian Henshall, who knew Hitchens when they were both at Oxford, will join us to expose sordid details about his former university mate.

Josh’s essay, which signally fails to commiserate with the cancer-stricken Hitchens, is a calculated provocation…rather like my half-dead-serious, half-self-consciously-outrageous proposal for a mega-mosque on Ground Zero sporting gigantic Twin Minarets to replace the Towers demolished by genocidal Islamophobes. (My proposal drew a 50,000-watt interview with KDKA’s Mike Pintek, was picked up by the great Muslim truther site AscertainTheTruth, and was recently honored as “the most obnoxious thing on the internet” by 9/11-truth-hater Matt Taibbi.)

Is it okay to be brash, entertaining, provocative, and even a little self-consciously obnoxious in pursuit of 9/11 truth? Or do we all have to be paranoid, humorless dweebs like Jim and Victronix?

Tune in Tuesday and find out…

Harun Yahya (Adnan Oktar), Thomas E. Woods on Truth Jihad Radio

Truth Jihad Radio Sat. 8/14/10, 5-7 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or (402) AFR-252, or post your questions to my Facebook page, where Ed Rynearson of RadioDuJour will be putting up hyperlinks about matters under discussion.

First hour: Adnan Oktar, “the most influential Muslim in the worldaccording to a Reuters poll. Writing under the pen name Harun Yahya, Adnan Oktar’s books have sold many millions of copies worldwide. He is well known for his books and articles about Islam, and is the world’s most prominent spokesperson for creationism.

Mr. Oktar is a supporter of the Cordoba House Islamic Center in New York City, which has been the subject of a manufactured controversy, and challenged the official version of 9/11 during his interview with me last year. He is widely considered a leading Muslim advocate of peace, coexistence and brotherhood between the faiths.

Second hour: Thomas E. Woods, author of the important new book Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century. Dr. Woods (BA Harvard, Ph.D Columbia) is a historian and senior fellow at the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, and the author of ten books.

Nullification presents Thomas Jefferson’s argument that states have the right to nullify unconstitutional federal laws by refusing to enforce them, or by actively impeding enforcement. Dr. Woods traces the hidden history of nullification– a concept that was once widely accepted, but which has been gradually obscured by powerful people wielding bad arguments. Nullification is becoming increasingly prominent today as states nullify federal drug laws (by legalizing medical marijuana), the Real ID Act (by refusing to implement it), and Obamacare (by standing up for their citizens’ rights to refuse to buy mandatory private health insurance). Since the Constitution explicitly lists what the federal government can do, and reserves everything else to the states and the people, it seems that the rogue regime occupying Washington D.C. has given us plenty to nullify!

Speaking of Constitutional issues…What would happen if a bunch of people generated a Constitutional test case by sending one dollar to Hamas, in violation of an unconstitutional law passed during the Clinton administration? We could argue that the federal government’s prohibition against supporting Hamas, together with its mandate that all Americans pay taxes to support the Zionist regime occupying Palestine and committing genocide against the Palestinian people, violates the freedom of religion clause by establishing favoritism toward Zionist Judaism against Islam.

This prejudicial favoritism toward Zionism, and against Islam, cannot be explained by legitimate foreign policy considerations. Hamas has never attacked the USA, while Israel has repeatedly attacked us–in 1954, 1967, and most memorably on 9/11. The only explanation for the prohibition on supporting a harmless charitable group struggling against genocide, and the income tax mandate to support the perpetrators of that genocide, is that the preponderance of Jewish-Zionist power in the USA has forced our government to unconstitutionally favor Zionist Judaism over Islam.

Anybody out there willing to be one of one hundred people who would publicly send a dollar to Hamas? This would not be an actual violation of federal law, since unconstitutional laws, as Dr. Woods explains, are not laws at all.

American Professor Charges Israel with Genocide — Publisher Censors Title!

William A. Cook, professor of English at the University of La Verne in southern California, has charged the state of Israel with genocide — but his publisher won’t let him use the G word in the title of his new book!

Discussing the brand-new The Plight of the Palestinians: A Long History of Destruction on the Kevin Barrett show yesterday, Dr. Cook said that the publishers, Palgrave-McMillan, told him: “‘We can’t use the original title As the World Watches: Genocide in Palestine.'” Dr. Cook added that the book’s contents, which provide ample proof that Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinians, were not censored.

I asked Dr. Cook: “There does seem to be a taboo against calling what is being done to the Palestinians genocide. And yet, according to the internationally-accepted definition of genocide…as I recall, there is a strong argument that it does fit what’s happening in Palestine.”

Dr Cook responded:

“The book deals with that point quite extensively in at least three different places (including my article). The Christisons‘ article deals with it as well. In the article that I wrote, ‘The Rape of Palestine’…I refer to the 1944 genocide term, which was a neologism created by Raphael Lemkin in The Axis Rule in Occupied Europe. Frank Chalk and Kurt Jonassohn summarized Lemkin’s meaning. And let me read that paragraph because I think it’s essential to grasp the fulness of the intent the UN grappled with and passed in its accepted definition of genocide. Under Lemkin’s definition genocide was ‘the coordinated and planned annihilation of a national, religious, or racial group by a variety of actions aimed at undermining the foundations essential to the survival of the group as a group.’ That’s group, it is not state. Lemkin conceived of genocide as ‘a composite of different acts of persecution or destruction.’ That’s a quote. His definition included ‘attacks on political and social institutions, culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of the group.’ Even non-lethal acts that undermined the liberty, dignity, and personal security of members of the group constituted genocide, if they contributed to weakening the viability of the group. Under Lemkin’s definition, acts of ethnocide, a term coined by the French after the war to cover the destruction of a culture without the killing of its bearers, also qualified as genocide. You take that composite understanding, and everything looking back from today — the siege on Gaza, going back to the various intentional destructions and massacres in Janin or Rafa, Ramallah, you realize that what’s taking place, including the building of the wall, which makes the independent economic condition of the Palestinian people impossible — that is genocide.”

Listen to my interview with Dr. William Cook.

The quoted segment begins about 14:40.
