9/11 Backlash Comes From Hollywood, Not Government
The 9/11 movement has been lax in not anticipating the direction from which their most vociferous flak will be thrown. It's not government appointed commissions, politicians or Popular Mechanic debunking spreads.
The real counter-backlash is coming from TV movies and big screen blockbusters, serving up a diet of spoon fed propaganda that reinforces the official version of events.
A television movie about one of the doomed Sept. 11 airplanes was A&E's most-watched program ever, a sign that audiences may be ready for a coming spate of movie and TV projects dramatizing the terrorism of five years ago.
"Flight 93," about the hijacking of the United Airlines plane and passengers' efforts to retake it, drew 5.9 million viewers when it premiered Monday, the cable channel said.
It was the most-watched A&E program since the channel launched in 1984.
Dwindling amounts of people are watching network news and reading newspapers. People who consider themselves informed get most of their news from The Daily Show, which is a mockumentary spoof on the week's events.
The majority of people's views are formed on the basis of popular culture, television and Hollywood. Shallow as it may seem, this is why 9/11 films like Loose Change are so evergreen at the moment. Because they attach the subject of the 9/11 conspiracy to a cultural fad, in this case hip-hop music. This is a beneficial thing because it makes what is normally heavy subject matter easier to digest, especially for younger audiences.
Likewise, whether by intent or proxy, the establishment has pinned its agenda to the upcoming rash of movies that supposedly re-tell the story of Flight 93 and the collapse of the twin towers.
The official 9/11 story has about as much basis in fact as Humpty Dumpty.
And just like Humpty Dumpty, all the king's horses and all the king's men certainly can’t put the official story of 9/11 back together again. It’s a yarn that has already been decimated by the alternative media time and time again.
The fallacy of the orthodox fairytale is why the establishment, through its avenues of propaganda, needs to constantly re-apply band aids to keep people from seeing the awful truth.
Consider the very first made for TV movie about 9/11, called DC 9/11. A film which portrays president Bush on Air Force one on 9/11, exclaiming his frustration in not being able to have a fist fight with Osama bin Laden.
Now contrast that to the actual demeanor of Bush on the day of 9/11, doe eyed, unsure, taking the decision to read an upside down book about a pet goat for half an hour after he’s told about the biggest attack on America since Pearl Harbor.
It's pro-war, pro-government pro official version of 9/11 down to a tee.
And who wrote and produced the film? Lionel Chetwynd, a big establishment neo-con and government apologist, perhaps the most politically connected producer in the world today.
Chetwynd privately met with George Bush, Karl Rove and a bunch of top Republicans to have them vet the script before he shot the film.
This is the same Lionel Chetwynd who jabbed his finger at Alex Jones and barked “we’re going to get you,” in the bathroom before a taping of TNN's Conspiracy Zone show that they both featured on as guests.
So the very first movie about 9/11 is made by a high level Bush administration stooge. And the film wholeheartedly backs up lock step the official version of events.
The imminent box office release, Universal Studio's Flight 93, has been given a substantial advertising pitch before it hits the big screen.
It reinforces the “let’s roll” myth of Flight 93 and pushes aside the fact that experienced pilots on the ground saw that the plane was shot down with their own eyes.
It ignores the fact that we have an 8 mile wide debris field for a plane that we are led to believe was fully intact in the seconds before it hit the ground.
We’ve had contact with credible individuals who have personally talked with the pilots who shot the plane down.
Flight 93 is replete with its cast of hijackers, again sidestepping the difficult fact that several of these hijackers later turned up alive and that they could barely even get puddle jumping cessnas off the ground, never mind execute moves that crack fighter pilots couldn’t pull off, as was the case at the Pentagon.
These movies will have more impact on a viewer than any official statement or Discovery Channel documentary.
The network of 9/11 websites and speaking organizations needs to directly address these movies so as to raise awareness to their purpose and reclaim the sentiment of the droves of viewers that are likely to be hoodwinked by them.
