Sarah Palin 9/11 Truther controversy explodes
Sarah Palin 9/11 Truther Controversy Explodes
Days after Debra Medina's rising bid for Texas Governor was stung by controversy over comments about 9/11 on the Glenn Beck Show, it has emerged that former Vice Presidential candidate and "Tea Party' darling Sarah Palin has done her one better-- stating her support for a new 9/11 investigation just before the 2008 election, and going far beyond Medina's mild statement.
Yet, it isn't the audacity to admit there are remaining questions about 9/11 when scientific polls have found that 84% of Americans do not believe the official story and six of the ten 9/11 commissioners think their own report is flawed, or worse. Instead, it is the hypocrisy of Glenn Beck and the media cretins who followed his lead in dismissing and defaming Medina outright for not immediately belittling 9/11 truthers and ignoring similar statements by GOP darling Sarah Palin.
Furthermore, Medina's GOP challengers-- incumbent Rick Perry and Sen. Hutchison blasted her in the media within mere minutes of her 9/11 comments.
Sitting Governor Perry, who was endorsed by Sarah Palin during a recent stump appearance, stated that Medina's comments were an "insult": Todays comments were an insult to the thousands of Americans who lost loved ones on Sept. 11 and the military men and women who are overseas protecting our country, Perry said in a statement. President Bush worked tirelessly to protect our nation from additional terrorist attacks and anyone who would suggest Sept. 11 is a conspiracy involving the Bush administration should be ashamed.
Will Gov. Rick Perry also rebuke Sarah Palin, his top endorsement, for her potentially "insulting" statement?
Further, Medina is not the only gubernatorial candidate to question the events of 9/11. Democrat Farouk Shami went quite a bit further than anything Medina had said when he stated:
People have talked about it. Professors have written books about it. People overseas talk about it. Whenever I go overseas, people ask me these questions about it. Why are we questioned about it? Do they know something we dont know, the public? But you know, look, we still dont know who killed JFK whose behind it, lets put it that way. Would we ever find the truth about 9/11? Thats a very dangerous subject to get into, you know? So its hard to make judgement. Im not saying yes or no. Because I dont know the truth.
Yet no fuss is made about these individuals. Debra Medina is attacked, however, because she truly is a threat to the political establishment. Perry, Hutchison, Beck and others pretend to want limited government, but really support new taxes, look the other way at corporate looting and otherwise refuse to stand for true Texas sovereignty and the rights of individuals. When Medina proves that she really will change things and challenge under Federal powers, she is attacks and cast aside as a pariah.
Glenn Beck, who has stated that he "hates the 9/11 victim's families", who has called 9/11 truthers "dangerous anarchists", who has called Ron Paul and his supporters 'domestic terrorists', has gone out of his way to politically assassinate anyone even loosely affiliated with questioning the official government account of September 11. Now that Beck has underhandedly tried to sabotage Debra Medina, will he also call out fellow FOX News personality Sarah Palin for daring to broach the subject that makes him come unglued?

After all, Glenn Beck went so far as to say that Medina's comments about 9/11 not only urge him to 'cross her off the list' but constitute to make her a "Flat Earther." By contrast, Glenn Beck gave Sarah Palin a worshipful welcome to the FOX Network, embarrassingly comparing her to George Washington, reading aloud his diary entry anticipating their interview together, putting her "on the most admired list" and otherwise urging her to be a 'reluctant' candidate in 2012.
