What Was 9/11 Then and What Is It Today?
Twenty years ago Americans were attacked. They were told a story that they were attacked by 19 Saudis who were part of a global network of terror. Just hours after the buildings collapsed, President George W. Bush announced who the guilty were. Nobody seemed to wonder that in the space of a few hours the government had magically conducted an investigation and knew who was responsible, except for a few of us that were suspicious of the nature of the collapses and the videos showing Osama Bin Laden claiming responsibility. We knew that the narrative didn’t add up, from the “let’s roll” story from a cell phone call on a plane when at that time there was no cell service on planes, to the box cutter false story, to the obvious damage to the pentagon that a plane could not cause, to the swift removal of the evidence contained in the collapsed structural components, to the lies told to the U.N., and hundreds of other things including the response of the government to wage war on Iraq and Afghanistan.
Many of us knew then and know beyond any doubt that 9/11 was a false flag, that the official narrative of the planes and fire causing the buildings to crumble defies the laws of physics, that the “pancake theory” is for the ignorant, and that for any of the buildings to collapse that way took skilled engineering, steel cutting charges, and controlled explosive sequencing. If you are one of us, you were called a “conspiracy theorist” for stating undeniable facts, for applying engineering principles, for putting things in the context of history, and for warning of the loss of our freedoms at the hand of a lying, despotic, and tyrannical government. We were often ridiculed, mocked, and ostracized for trying to tell others who didn’t want to face the fact that “it can happen here”.
The American psyche had been brainwashed by years of conditioning and living with no war on our land since the 1890s that despotism, tyranny and totalitarianism, was something that happened “over there” or to “other people” and couldn’t happen here to Americans because somehow we are better, smarter, we can vote, we have guns, or we wouldn’t let it, or any number of false reasons. So, when we tried to say “it can happen here” the cognitive dissonance of most Americans would not allow them to consider that it actually could and it actual is happening here.
To all of us we ought to rename September 11th as Patrick Henry Day because he sounded the alarm 213 years before when he in multiple speeches warned that the newly formed national government would become despotic.
September 11, 2001 was the revealing of that despotism right before the people’s eyes and a test of the tyrant’s skillful propaganda machine to d
