Holy Crap, Some Celebrities Are Stupid And Delusional? Why Didn't Someone Tell Me This Before?

Unfortunately, too many members of my generation take everything people like this say as at least worthy of further consideration, if not the truth:

Blink 182 Star Latest Celebrity To Question 9/11

Blink 182 star Tom DeLonge has followed in the footsteps of Charlie Sheen by becoming the latest celebrity to publicly doubt the official version of events behind 9/11 and voice his belief that the attacks were an inside job.

Well, that settles it. A dude who has dedicated his life to making shitty pop-punk music and assaulting the ears of normal people with his high-pitched, whiny singing voice thinks that Bush had something to do with 9/11. The jig is up, guys!

DeLonge is the lead singer in Blink 182, a southern Californian punk/pop quartet that has had two US Billboard number one selling albums and whose 1999 album Enema of the State went platinum five times over.

Why do I get the feeling that this fact is somewhat related to the fact that people are dumb enough to believe this "9/11 was an inside job" bullshit?

During a hosting spot on a San Diego’s KAVA-FM radio station, DeLonge talked with Professor James Fetzer about evidence of 9/11 inside involvement.

"We do know that the buildings came down in a fashion extremely similar to a controlled demolition of a building...

No, they didn't.

...we do know that expertise that is needed to fly those gigantic planes into that exact location could never have been achieved by someone that just learned how to fly a small plane, said DeLonge."

And how do "we" "know" this, dipshit? It seems to me that pointing a large plane at a large building would be fairly easy if you knew how to control said plane. Apparently, you've never played a flight simulator.

Discussing the failure of NORAD to enact standard operating procedure and intercept the planes and Norman Mineta's testimony about Cheney's orders 'still standing' - DeLonge stated, "Cheney knew that the planes are coming in and he capped the order to leave it alone so it could hit."

Wow, apparently, Cheney is also psychic. After all, hijacked planes are flown into buildings on a regular basis. The hijackers never do anything crazy like diverting to another airfield and then letting the hostages live. You know.

"It's so weird how our own government did it to us, 9/11 was not perpetrated by a bunch of people that just learned how to fly planes," said DeLonge.

It's so weird that anyone could take this, or you, seriously.

Highlighting consistent Zogby polls that show an increasing acceleration of awareness to alternative explanations behind 9/11, DeLonge stated, "We're talking about 60-70% of the American people are actually starting to think that there's a different story, why are we as Americans sitting back and letting this happen to us?"

Of course, polls control reality, so whatever people believe thanks to idiots like you becomes the truth in retrospect, right? And your projection of conspiracy theories onto the populace means that they all question the 9/11 explanations for the exact same reasons as you, right? RIGHT?

"Why would we sit back and let our country be defined this way?," said DeLonge.

Defined what way? As a bunch of brainless buffoons who would rather believe that a huge government conspiracy took place to perpetrate a terrorist attack rather than, you know, the actual terrorist leader who admitted on both audio and video tape to carrying it out?

DeLonge was careful to counter potential accusations that he was simply engaging in partisan rhetoric.

"I want to come out right now and say that I am not for a Democrat or for the Republican party - I want to make this clear right now and say that I don't hate Bush because he's Republican."

Oh, well that's good to know. If it makes any difference, I don't hate you because you're a complete fucking idiot. I kinda pity you, though.

"I believe in the idea of America being as it was set out to be - this great experiment to better mankind," said the Blink 182 star.

Hmmm...my Original Thought Detector isn't getting any reading at all. Weird.

"This isn't about the red or blue, this is about this administration being involved in something that is really really scary and really really dark and deceptive."

"Mommy, I had a nightmare about Bushchimperialist and wet the bed! Can you change my sheets while I write a terrible song about it?"

While clearly not in the same league as Charlie Sheen's courageous high-profile public stance...

BWAHAHAHA!!! Yeah, getting extra publicity and slaps on the back from your fellow morons sure is courageous, Mr. Conspiracy Website Author.

DeLonge should be commended for using his notoriety as a platform for exploring the truth.

Hey, I think I should point out to the author that someone hacked his article and replaced "punched in the face" with "commended," and "paranoid schizophrenia" with "the truth."

Celebrities questioning 9/11 do not give the truth movement credibility, that has already been obtained through the research of people such as Professor Jones, Morgan Reynolds and Andreas von Bülow.

Argument from authority: A favorite logical fallacy of those with no actual knowledge of the bullshit they're spewing.

Celebrities give the truth movement a more vocal platform and a means of reaching a sector of society that might usually be off-limits via the normal reaches of the alternative truth community.

"Alternative truth community." I like it. It pretty much describes your wacky little pastime. At least they're no longer pretending to be "reality-based."
