ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Monday Morning Moonbat - MIHOP, LIHOP, or Official Story?

Here are a few Monday Morning Moonbat posts for you. It seems that the Left is still unsure about the facts surround 9/11 and continues to question whether Bush Made It Happen On Purpose (MIHOP) or simply Let It Happen On Purpose (LIHOP). Here are several posts that deal with the subject.

Philosoraptor asks if people's opinions of the events have changed since 9/11:

Poll question: A simple Yes or No: Have you changed your mind about 9/11?

I'd prefer we not get into details and specifics, just trying to get a feel for things five years after. Of course feel free to respond as well.

I'm just referring to the official story about the event and your own personal opinion, has it changed over the last five years, or is it the same?

1. I took...
... the whole story at face value when it happened.

I honestly don't see how a sentient being could possibly buy the story now.

Our illustrious president didn't pull out all the stops to derail any serious investigation for nothing.

5. I totally agree with your statement,
I think that the *ush Admin is responsible for 9/11

3. I've gone from thinking that they saw it coming and let it happen to
thinking that some in our government actually facilitated some of the hijackers, and deliberately disabled air defenses that day.

I bet I'm not the only one to draw these conclusions.

At least, I hope I'm not. But I'm an expatriate living overseas, I'm not under the homeland propaganda umbrella. So, the view is quite different from out here.

Ahh, to be a part of the "reality-based community!" ;-)

Here's another MIHOP/LIHOP post, caused by the recent broadcast of Inside 9/11 on National Geographic.

Was just watching "Inside 9/11" on NGC and ...
no matter how many times I see the official story told, it is still profoundly compelling. I can't imagine what they've got planned for us next.

4. War is very profitable, afterall.
You can't have war if there is no justification for another Pearl Harbor.

Yet another 9/11 related post appears here.

Now, the amazing thing is that these people are the driving force behind the Democratic party today - I recall something about how they bought it, they own it, and they're taking it back. A few of their candidates are gaining prominence in the Democratic party and in the MSM, such as Ned Lamont in CT. I suspect that many of the whacko views expressed on posts such as these at DU are not only within the realm of pajama clad nerds suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome. I submit to you that a decent size of the Democratic base has similar thoughts on 9/11 - perhaps not going as far as to declare themselves MIHOPers or LIHOPers, but at least "questioning the official story." Why is this important?

Well, if you question the basic facts of what happened on 9/11 (ie. radical, Islamofascists were solely responsible for successfully attacking the US yet again), then how serious can you be about the War On Terror? I mean, if some small part of you consciousness actually believes that the Bush administration may have been behind 9/11, can you truly be vigilant when it comes to defeating our enemies - since some part of you actually believes that our CiC might himselfbe the enemy?

Aggh...this is just another straw man. You need to prove your assertion that these people "are the driving force behind the Democratic party today." I don't believe that.

We bought it, we own it seems to me to be an indication of the fact that they're a driving force. Add to that the fact that the leadership in the Democratic party seems to be focused on gaining support from the nutroots and I think it's a compelling argument.

Face the fact that many in the Dem base seriously question the "official story."

Anybody can declare "We bought it, we own it." Doesn't make it so. "[T]hat the leadership in the Democratic party seems to be focused on gaining support from the nutroots" is your opinion.

C'mon, you do nuance. I know you do.
