Construction Complete on 9/11 Truther Memorial




http://www.theonion.com/article/construction-complete-on-911-truther-memorial-18034

Created by a design team who chose to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals from the Bilderberg Group, the memorial has as its centerpiece the "Truth Towers," a 60-foot-tall replica of the World Trade Center that houses a museum devoted to unanswered questions surrounding the attacks. Below it lies a pentagonal reflecting pool from which emerge 18 steps leading to the base of the monument, with each stair intended to symbolize one of the 18 Great Lies of the 9/11 conspiracy.

"This is a place where Americans can come to reflect on the most elaborate hoax in our nation's history," said Carol Bowerman, 53, wiping away tears as she walked passed a 15-foot granite cylinder representing the cruise missile used to fake a plane crash at the Pentagon. "On this hallowed ground, those of us who refuse to accept the official version of events can mourn the day the United States was taken over by a crypto-fascist cabal more powerful than anyone can imagine."

"It's so moving," Bowerman added.

The museum is free and open to the public, though $10 is charged for admittance to the theater screening an endless 12-second loop of the building at World Trade Center 7 collapsing, an event a modulated voice-over describes as an obvious controlled demolition

1. I wonder if "The Onion" readers know that this barely qualifies

as satire, as the truther community would proudly build something just like this if they could.

2. If they could?


But the community is HUGE and constantly growing by leaps and bounds. Why, surely if they each donated a very small amount individually, it would come to a fortune.

I mean, the vast majority of architects and engineers could clearly chip in something.

3. Keep laying on the smarm

 

All this does is legitimize the thugs that have been slowly dismantling our economy/militarizing the police, ad nauseum, since that day.

4. Hardly

Exploiting a situation for undesirable interests does not require one to cause the situation.

5. True on its face in principle

 

But in this instance, it doesn't end there, unless it's comforting to have it do so.
