Instapinch Lambasts an Asshat

Better late than never, I ran across a blog entry from February 3rd that was just too good to pass up: “The BEST Tinfoil Hat Post Ever!

In the article, Instapinch links to, and properly lambasts, some asshat from the Midwest (known only as Spooked) who, for reasons neither known nor understandable, adamantly clings to the idea that the World Trade Centers were destroyed by controlled demolition and were never hit by airplanes. Truly, Spooked deserves the Dummkopfen of the Month award for February 2006; but after reading a few more entries, such as how the Pentagon was never hit by a plane either, this may well spill over into June.

Furthermore, this asshat, Spooked, has the gall to sit from his safe little Midwest vantage point and tell the thousands of us who were driving on I-395 and the GW (I was on the way to Crystal City from downtown, mind you) that we are, in fact, mistaken. Apparently we’re all fools, the thousands of us. I mean, we should have just closed our eyes and waited for this Midwest Super Genius to tell us what happened! It must have been the Great GW’s mind control that made us see “a plane” go down at the Pentagon. The flames and soot certainly must have been “controlled demolition.” Doesn’t that make so much more sense?

I feel that people like Spooked are dangerous, and need to be put away. I’m not even going to link to the asshat — I feel I’m already giving him enough fuel by expressing my displeasure, so check out Instapinch for the skinny.

Good job, Pinch. Keep ripping him a new one!

    Yo Sam…

    Thanks for the link and the blogroll! Gotcha blogroll’ed back.

    We’ll keep up the good fight against the asshats – they lend a new definition to the old saying “There are no dumb questions”.

    Yes — Other article on the asshat’s site point “controlled bombing,” asking the Government to “prove” that that the flight actually hit the Pentagon, and generally try and debunk it as an “impossible” incident.

    A yes, *plenty* of people witnessed the event. The Pentagon sits conveniently at a major intersection of I-395 and the George Washington Parkway (something easily seen by air, despite entries on the asshat’s blog which say otherwise). It would be difficult to say how many people take that drive each day — between 6AM and 10:30AM, and then again between 3PM and 6:40PM, it’s virtually a parking lot.

    Point enough for you?

    You’re absolutely right Mark Steel!

    We cannot, and SHOULD NOT question ANYTHING our Government tells US.

    If we do, then the Terrorists have won.

    We need to surrender our rights, burn the Constitution or else “They” (insert current scapegoat de jour) will hit US again.

    The Bush Administration is doing a GREAT job, and will protect US again. …just like they did last time.

    Not really. What you wrote is rather incomprehensible, frankly. Did you see a plane plow into the Pentagon, or not? If so, what did the plane look like? Why do you keep beating around the bush here?

    “The fact that you even threw those phrases in there is just — wow. I moved there in 2002 and worked with a number of people who saw it … including a few who lost friends. How you can even question it is just … beyond me.”

    Wow, this really clarifies the whole debate, doesn’t it? Not.

    What did these “number of people” see exactly? I’m rather curious.

    Ya know what, people — I don’t give a f#$* what you think, quite honestly.

    I was one of those Americans who said, Hey, things shouldn’t be like this, and got told, “Then move to another country!” I did.

    I came back with my tail between my legs, too.

    Been around the world. No place better.

    Having read the supposed “evidence” (from another country — GO FIGURE!) about how the Pentagon wasn’t hit, I’d just like to point out … Cockpits are amde to specifications. Of course, an average idiot with a blog and no sense of the world, and having a National Airline run by English Pilots (Qantas — greats flights! Love ’em!) would know that, menschmaam.

    Let’s talk about hose specifications, as I’m sure Pinch can point out, being a Navy Pilot.

    The bars in the cockpit window round-about denote when you should turn to approach a given landing area. You bank it a specified angle (depending on the plane, which you know, if you’re a pilot) and straighten it up when it’s right (either by instruments, a HUD, visually as a last chance)….

    And it ain’t too damn hard to see two interstates coming together, so it shouldn’t be too hard a chore to figure out where a pretty damn big building is from 5000 feet, especially when you’ve got a Compass sitting on the dashboard.

    I’m also pretty sure, Spooked, that you know what a proxy is. Nice comments from the same person, moron.

  10. Rosalee Grable Says:

    Our little stalinist seems to have decided that anybody who doesn’t bow and scrape to their boilerplate mongerings is all the same person.
    More probably, since they all use moron like a chant and want to lock people up while they sit here itching for martial law, it’s “mark steele” who’s the sockpuppet for the namecalling asshat who had to look in the mirror to decide what name to call spooked.

    I know there’s several of us cos Spook told us about this “honor” he was given, otherwise we never would have found this obscure blog.

  11. Nigel Glockler Says:

    Please don’t point Stalinism in this direction. Mark Steel has been a Socialist buffer since you were a wink in your fathers’ eye.

    It amazes me that people can really be as stupid as to believe that 9/11 was faked or whatever other crazy theory they’ll come with next week.

    While I was not physically in New York, Pennsylvania, or Washington D.C. when it happened, I was watching it on live TV and listening to it on live radio, from trusted media sources. I could hear the sorrow and anguish in the voices of the newscasters who were reporting the event live on the scene.

    I WATCHED the damn planes run into both buildings of the World Trade Center. I watched them fall.

    My words of advice for those who think that this didn’t happen: Seek psychiatric care immediately. You have lost complete touch with reality. As your local shrink to find some nice meds for you so you can join the rest of us who recognize and understand what is really going on in the world today.

  14. Monty Hazeltrig Says:

    But it’s so much easier to imagine our vast powerful government contriving of this charade and deluding the cities of New York and Washington, as well as the rest of us. This sort of conspiracy is not a hard task. Look at how well they handled Katrina! C’mon, piece of cake!

  15. spooked Says:

    Yes, whatever you see on TV must be real, right? And the media would never lie, right?

    Really, who is being delusional, here?

    Why can’t I get a simple answer regarding what exactly Sam Kelter saw on 9/11 at the Pentagon? Specifics would be very helpful.

  16. spooked Says:

    By the way, I’m curious– how many of the people here who think the US government had nothing to do with 9/11 also think Saddam had something to do with 9/11 and that we invaded iraq because of its link to 9/11?

  17. Joseph Sandler Says:

    He gave you the straight answer telling you very clearly where it was and stating where he was when he saw it. I also witnessed it while driving in from Springfield but disgaree about the description of a parking lot on 395. At least in the few minutes prior anyway. Then again I was also northbound and before the parkway where Kelter was obviously southbound. Speaking of believing everything you see on tv I certainly don’t recall the Bush administration having ever said anything about Saddam being linked to 9/11 but do remember many of the party’s proponents polarizing this issue and hinting in that direction. Bush has made plenty of mistakes which need to be focused on without making things up.

  18. Monty Hazeltrig Says:

    There is plenty of eye witness acounts, and evidence. Of course, if you are determined to not take anyone’s evidence, you won’t. Everything is a conspiracy, but then, I also read that this denial of the Pentagon crash is also a goevernment lie to take our minds off other things… You can’t win, but check HERE for plenty of evidence to chew on.

  19. pinch Says:

    One of the guys I read in my war college days (and continue to read) was a strategic analyst named Thomas Barnett (http://www.thomaspmbarnett.com/weblog/ – I have a few problems with Barnett, but by and large he has some good stuff). He had this perfect explanation for the aforementioned conspiracy theorists (such as Spooked and his ilk):

    “Conspiracy theories in general are attempts by people to explain complexity. Instead of acts of God, they become giant conspiracies of all-powerful men. All I can say is that I’ve met all these alleged conspirators, worked for a few, and gotten to know first hand virtually all of the organizations named in such things, working for a few, and life is so much more tragically boring and sad than the conspiracy types can handle.

    So they tell their stories to console themselves about their ignorance.

    You eat junk, you get fat. It’s as simple as that. Stay away from the junk food.”

    Just about nails it – an inability to handle complex events in this world, so they dumb it down to their lowest common denominator, damn the facts.
