Professor Opens His Own Can of Worms

Dr. Barry R. Komisaruk brings up evidence surrounding 9/11, questioning the official account...
And in a rebuttal some misinformed reader writes... "In the end if you use your brain first, you will see that there is no 9/11 conspiracy." Prof. Komisaruk's response to that comment was: "My brain tells me that we need an independent, objective investigation. If the government has nothing to hide, let it make all the data available. Let us see the photos that they claim that show the wreckage of a Boeing 757 commercial jetliner at the Pentagon. Let us see the surveillance films of whatever it was that hit the Pentagon. Let Mr. Rumsfeld tell us why he said that a missile hit the Pentagon. Let us hear the statements by the military personnel who claim they know that the plane over Pennsylvania was shot down (Griffin, 2007, op. cit., pp. 306-307). Let the investigation explain how the metal from the twin towers was still molten weeks after 9/11 if airline kerosene had all burned off in the first hour after the planes hit. Let them explain why the 911 Commission did not even mention Building 7 in their report.

There are so many unanswered questions that the only way to put the issue to rest is to have an unbiased objective investigation with all government and any other relevant documents being made available. If they have nothing to hide why not open up the 9/11 archives? Let the public see the evidence and let us then judge for ourselves."

-Barry R. Komisaruk is a Professor II of Psychology at R-N, and the Rutgers Board of Governors Distinguished Service Professor. He is also theAssociate Dean of the Graduate School.

Excellent post Shoes! Back on topic.

Gawd almighty! No planes, molten steel, and WTC7 practically all in one breath! Don't mind me while I just go crawl under a rock in the corner and suck my thumb in the fetal position for a while.

LOL!

Good footage of the drone (originally hiding behind the kiosk) turning into a big white dust cloud on impact with the Pentagon, though. That is, at least most of it seemed to have been dustified, I guessing probably all the aluminum and steel parts, mostly, but how many layers into the Pentagon did the nose on that one pierce through again -- like four or five rings?

Actually, I just read what the good professor wrote in detail, and many of the points he makes are pretty darn good, especially for a non-hard-core scientist (who in many ways are to be trusted more than many of these so called "scientific experts").

Did you see what the junta had to do in Myanmar for the crackdown? The first thing they did was cut-off access to the Internet (and while we are at it, will somebody wake up and please get sista Aung San Suu Kyi the hell out of prison? http://tinyurl.com/2265d5).

Anyway, that's what is going to have to be done to crack-down on this slow, steady leakage and exposure of the truth -- and then (looking more hopeful by the minute) the eventual complete damn breakage on 9/11 and on Iraq.

Obviously out of my fetal position now and in a more positive mode, I will take that bet, Life, on one condition: all bets are off if the Internet is somehow shut down in this country.

It is not power that corrupts but fear. Fear of losing power corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it.

Just making a point here that Burma is supposedly "backward" compared to the good ol' USA, but they elected a woman leader. Hmmm.

Would anyone on this site believe that an independent investigation was truly independent during this administration?

If it was an independent investigation, and they found the official goverment story was true, would you put an end to these conspiracy theories?

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

fat chance anon...it would be the KKK , Blackwater, and Halliburton behind it if they didn't get their desired results.

Shoes4Industry said...

If it was BELIEVABLE! The investigation they did do was a joke.

If you believe what you were told, you're not paying attention or promoting your own agenda.

Newt Gingrich, the former Republican speaker of the House declines to throw his hat into the 2008 fray after determining that it would be illegal to pursue the presidency and remain head of his tax-exempt political organization.

We are suprised a Republican would be concerned about what's "legal!"

H Nicole said...

That most of the official government story has major flaws, inconsistencies, and downright violations of the laws of physics, is only part of the problem, Anon. The other part of the problem is that the government has not given an official account or stance or explanation for a lot of things.

So the answer to the question: "Would conspiracy theories go away if the new investigation revealed the same thing as the old investigation?" is "Huh?"

I love Dr. Judy Wood's approach, which is simply to get NIST to retract its use of the word "collapse" in the title, as well as the rest of the report, as a description of what happened to the twin towers. The term collapse is very narrowly defined in engineering, and it is obvious to anybody, possibly even Forrest here (though I somehow doubt it), that "collapse" is not what happened, but instead "pulverization to dust" or more simply put "dustification."

H Nicole said...

Keep in mind that "dustification" is just a description (the best one to date) of what we observed, not exactly what caused it nor how it came about, so don't get your panties in a twist over Dr. Judy Wood or "death rays from space" Forrest...

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

Life is like a box o' chocolates...

as long as they're not full of nuts or fruits...

H Nicole said...

- Calling the war an occupation.
- Calling steam supposedly observed at ground zero fumes.
- Calling the supposed collapse of the twin towers the dustification of the twin towers.

Using the proper descriptions for what is observed is a big step in shining some light into the dark and elucidating what really happened.

"War", "steam", and "collapse" all have specific definitions that the current situation and observations do not support, at least not nearly as much as the better terms presented.

H Nicole said...

Apparently, anybody with an IQ above 0 who asks pertinent questions is a fruit or nut. Since that makes Forrest Gump, one of my all time favorite characters, a fruit or nut, I will gladly take that title, and may even stop calling you Forrest, Life.

One of the most fundamental training excercises in studying law is to have to play advocate for both sides of the same case. So go for it, Forrest. Pretend you are arguing against the government official story and show us what a good lawyer you are. Tell us what the strongest evidence is against the official story and tell us how you would win the case against the government story.

As for a new investigation, yes, I fully expect Congress to carry out an independent investigation, and they may already be doing it for all we know. I thought you had more "respect" for our political leaders than that, Forrest?

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

OK...Let's try and make this as simple as possible using Logic...which is a difficult approach for many people, including, but by no means limited to most of those here.

Step 1. The Plastic Cup/Brick. While on the surface, something like this may appear to be a "logical" experiment to demonstrate what happened that day, it is not. I could very well construct matchsticks to form a "platform" to hold up my Corvette. It would appear that such a platform would "logically" equate to a full blown garage lift. As anyone with a brain could deduce, that would not be the case. One matchstick breaks, the whole thing comes crashing down. Matchsticks do not equate to a full fledge garage lift/jack. Plastic Cup/Brick does not equate to a 1300+ ft tall building weighing close to half a million tons full of power generators, water tanks, backup batteries full of chemicals, miles of wires, concrete, gypsum, and who knows what else, that suffered a catastrophic impact by an extremely large, extremely fast moving object, that was itself made up of many different objects having many different properties. While it may appear Cup/Brick/Matchstick/Jack seem to be a "logical" means to deduce a final conclusion. They are NOT. LOGIC dictates, that whatever it appears that may have happened can be reduced to its' simplest elements, it CANNOT, simply because of the infinite variabilities of the factors involved.

Step 2. Observations, whether by naked eye, video, or photography do not logically prove the means and actual events that may have seemed to have been observed by such methods. In the helicopter video, it appears that the rotor is not turning. The person holding the camera taking the video saw the blades turning, yet upon playback the blades were not turning, as "proved" by the video they just took. Who is in error? The video camera or the observer taking the video. Logic, on its' face, says something is wrong, either the camera or the observer, but in reality, neither is. Deeper analysis reveals that neither are in error, but there is a LOGICAL explanation of why one "observation" appears to be wrong. The same methodology applies ABSOLUTELY to the "dustification" of the spire. One video shows it appearing to "dustify". Another shows it clearly collapsing. Again, on it's face, logic would say that one is wrong. Reality though, shows a LOGICAL explanation for the discrepancy. Different cameras, different frame rates, different optics in the lens', a microsecond of sync signal difference between the two, and voila! two different "observations" of the same exact event showing two totally different "appearances".

So therefore, while The "Truthers Logic" on its' face may appear to be the simple solution, in reality, Pure Logic dictates otherwise due to the near infinite possibilities provided by a surely infinite set of circumstances provided by the multitude of factors involved that day.

You want to have a new independent investigation? More power to ya'. Don't bother me if they/you do. I say it ain't gonna' happen.

You want to believe in a bunch of nonsensical theories provided by people who only want their 15 minutes of fame and would argue that up is down and left is right for arguments sake? Go right ahead. Don't bother me, I just don't buy it.

If anything the cup represents much less structural mass than the actual building. The point, which you are obviously missing, is that if you "compromise" the structure of the cup, that brick falls at the speed of gravity, exactly like the WTC. If you DON'T compromise the underlying structure, the building collapses at a slower rate, if at all.

While it may appear Cup/Brick/Matchstick/Jack seem to be a "logical" means to deduce a final conclusion. They are NOT. LOGIC dictates, that whatever it appears that may have happened can be reduced to its' simplest elements, it CANNOT, simply because of the infinite variabilities of the factors involved.

Then by that "logic" you can't prove anything either way, so your 'theory' simply doesn't stand up.
Your position is indefensible.

The Pentagon has anti-missile defense systems. What the heck to people think happened to the plane? They think it somehow escaped the anti-missile defense?

Most of it probably didn't, as you may be able to see in frame two in the video to this post -- the plane possibly turning to dust.

The Government needs to release the 9/11 Pentagon surveillance tapes! What are they hiding? What are they covering up?

Where's the outrage?

Half the homes in the S4I Headquarters neighborhood have 24/7 video surveillance systems and the Pentagon doesn't? Give us a break! Release the tapes!

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

To a certain extent, I agree. The problem would be if they "released" the tapes, the assholes in MSM would be playing it over and over again and the only purpose it would serve would be to bring additional trauma and grief to the victims families.

Shoes4Industry said...

Oh, blame the media... good one, why not Clinton?

Since when did you, the media, the government or the public give a rat's ass about "victims families feelings."

What a crock.

What about the "feelings" of the families of service men who have been murdered by this administration in this phony "war on terrorism?"

WTF. Release the tapes!

Oh, the old "trauma and grief" argument. Not buying it. The truth is the best way to heal trauma and grief. Ask Pat Tillman's family -- that's why they're still pushing to hear the truth.

The only "Fact" is that we have not been told the truth.

If the only thing the tapes would show is "what actually happened" (your words), then why not release them? According to you, they have nothing to hide. But they're hiding the tapes -- why?

THE POLITICALLY CORRECT ELITIST LEFTWING LIBERAL HANDBOOK

Our Hallowed Sixty-Six Commandments

1. You have to believe that the AIDS virus is spread by a lack of federal funding.

2. You have to believe that the same teacher who can’t teach 4th graders how to read is somehow qualified to teach those same kids about sex.

3. You have to believe that guns in the hands of law-abiding Americans are more of a threat than U.S. nuclear weapons technology in the hands of Chinese and North Korean communists.

4. You have to believe that there was no art before federal funding.

5. You have to believe that global temperatures are less affected by cyclical, documented changes in the earth’s climate, and more affected by soccer moms driving SUVs.

6. You have to believe that gender roles are artificial, but being lesbian is natural.

7. You have to be against capital punishment for criminals, even murderers, but support abortion on demand.

8. You have to believe that businesses create oppression, and governments create prosperity. As a true Elitist Leftwing Liberal you have to believe that no Americans ever lost their jobs or became homeless except during the Reagan and Bush Administrations; these are problems that can be solved only by lotsa money and Liberals in the federal government.

9. You have to believe that hunters don’t care about nature, but loony activists who have never been outside of San Francisco do.

10. You have to believe that self-esteem is more important than actually doing something to earn it.

11. You have to believe that the military, not politicians, start wars.

12. You have to believe the NRA is bad, because it supports certain parts of the Constitution, while the ACLU is good because it supports certain parts of the Constitution.

13. You have to believe that taxes are too low, but ATM fees are too high.

14. You have to believe that Margaret Sanger and Gloria Steinem are more important to American history than Thomas Jefferson, General Robert E. Lee and Thomas Edison are.

15. You have to believe that standardized tests are racist, but racial quotas, preferential treatment and set-asides are not racist.

16. You have to believe that Hillary Clinton is normal, and really a very nice person.

17. You have to believe that the only reason socialism and communism haven’t worked anywhere it’s been tried, is because the right people haven’t been in charge. You must also vociferously deny the fact that “Nazi” is an abbreviation for Adolf Hitler’s Nationalsozialist party, because Hitler makes socialism look bad, unlike humanitarian socialists like Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein and a host of other socialists who raped, tortured, maimed and slaughtered their own people in the name of political and economic advancement for the plight of the downtrodden.

18. You have to believe conservatives telling the truth belong in jail, but a draft-dodging liar and sex offender belonged in the White House.

19. You have to believe that homosexual parades displaying drag, transvestites and bestiality as well as organizations such as NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association) and other groups that promote pedophilia should be constitutionally protected, but symbols such as the Cross, the Star of David and manger scenes at Christmas should be illegal.

20. You have to believe that illegal Democratic Party funding by the Chinese government is somehow in the best interests of the United States.

21. You have to refuse to discuss the issues in a rational manner and whenever someone attempts to do so, throw a 3 ring tantrum, rant and rave, go into a lunatic rage and outshout them (preferably with profanity and name-calling) and stick to personal slurs, smear tactics, slander and building strawmen so you can knock down the strawmen (oops, sorry, strawpersons) and hopefully sidetrack the conversation away from your lack of ability to support your positions or refute the arguments of others. When you can’t think of anything plausible to say, and name-calling and personal slurs are no longer working because people with IQs above ginger snaps can see right through such childish tactics, an especially effective prepubescent ploy that will at least convince other Elitist Leftwing Liberals, is to claim your adversaries hate America, or if you’re on the cowardly side, indignantly ask them why they hate America even though it’s obvious that its the Elitist Leftwing Liberals who hate America and Americans. Uncles Lenin and Stalin always urged us to accuse our adversaries of the very things we’re trying to hide. If you repeat this enough times, Elitist Leftwing Liberals will be offering awards - they may not be candy bars, but, you will be sure to win some snickers.

22. You must always ignore the message and attack the messenger. When stuck, remember the tactic that won’t reveal to other Elitist Leftwing Liberals your unwillingness to rebut the issue under discussion or your inability to think or say anything original: smugly change a couple of your adversaries’ words, parrot and repeat their comments back to them verbatim and even if it isn’t true, by all means always be sure to accuse your opponents of using the very tactics the Elitist Leftwing Liberals try to hide, remembering all the while that Unca Lenin would be proud as punch.

23. No matter how credible a source may be - always do your Elitist Leftwing Liberal duty and rabidly claim it’s been debunked and discredited and call anyone who believes it “mean spirited”, crazy, a Nazi or any other of the monikers from the Elitist Leftwing Liberal grab bag of infantile epithets and sarcastic sobriquets even if you invented your “data” out of thin air or found it on the webpage of some Elitist Leftwing Liberal lemming on the lunatic fringe. See Article #27 for the suggested politically correct buzzwords to use in your tantrums.

24. Whenever demonstrated facts don’t agree with your agenda, twist them and mangle them until you can make them fit into your prejudices, the media will assist you greatly.

25. Once you’ve told a lie or slandered someone, be sure to repeat it as often as possible until it becomes true. “Members and front organizations must continually embarrass, discredit and degrade our critics. When obstructionists become too irritating, label them as fascist, or Nazi or anti-Semitic …. The association will, after enough repetition, become “fact” in the public mind.” [ ~ Communist Party, Moscow Central Committee, 1943]

26. You have to believe that all spirituality and all religions except Islam are bad.

27. You must use the following buzzwords as often as possible without necessarily knowing their definitions: “Nazi”, “Hitler”, “gestapo”, “police state”, “police brutality”, “totalitarian state”, “imperialism”, “imperialist”, “running dogs of [fill in the blank], “greedy corporations”, “shrub”, “fascist”, “paranoid”, “paranoia”, “goosestepping”, “ruling-class”, “class-strife”, “class warfare”, “stolen election”, “unconstitutional”, “racist”, “entitlements”, “hate”, “bourgeois” or better yet, “petty bourgeois”, “counter-revolutionary”, “progressive”, “red-baiter”, “witch hunt”, “inquisition”, “anti-Communist”, “deviationist”, “revisionist”, “reactionary”, “multiculturalism”, “oppressed”, “unilateral”, “victims of Yankee oppression”, “plight of the [fill in the blank] people”, “victimhood”, “mean-spirited”, “McCarthyism”, “jingoism”, “flag-wavers”, “neocons”, “alternative(s)”, “empowered” and, of course, overuse of the indispensable “F” word.

28. You have to believe that there were never any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, even though they were used against Iran, the Kurds and the Iraqi people and even though the many Democrats warned us about WMD before the Iraqi invasion: William Jefferson Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Sandy Berger, Madeline Albright, Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, Robert Byrd, Jay Rockefeller, John Kerry, Bob Graham, Ted Kennedy, Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Henry Waxman and vice-president Al Gore to name only the most vociferous.

29. You have to be a purveyor of perennial pessimism and a dispatcher of doomsday gloom and hyperbolic hysteria whenever you can work some scare tactics into the foreboding warnings of eventual catastrophe at the hands of your adversaries, i.e. people who disagree with you.

30. Whenever possible, if you hear or read something that seems quite logical and might influence someone against the Elitist Leftwing Liberal viewpoint, be sure to pounce on the exception or some tiny, inconsequential irrelevancy, such as the misspelling, poor punctuation or mispronunciation of a word, unusual facial expression, article of clothing or some morsel of arcane trivia or irrelevant minutiae in an attempt to derail the conversation into petty bickering replete with name-calling and personal slurs. [Use of the “F” word is particularly effective, especially when combined with prepubescent profanity and puerile posturing.]

31. Always have unkind and accusatory slurs cocked and ready to use regarding any armed forces personnel, especially military people in harm’s way other than your own candidates, sell-outs, turncoats, traitors and those who are guilty of or advocate treason. The exception, of course, would be soldiers killed or wounded when a Republican is president - then take an indignant stance and shriek hysterically at the tragedy - don’t worry other Elitist Leftwing Liberals will realize your disdain for military people who are characterized favorably when you think it will make conservatives look bad in the eyes of Elitist Leftwing Liberals, the lunatic fringe and the politically illiterate.

32. When your adversary presents a particularly damning discovery, pervert it, twist it around, fabricate something out of thin air and accuse him of something he didn’t say, falsely attribute your invention to him and then proceed to argue against your own creation with the hope nobody will notice. This is best done by beginning your remarks with “Translation:”, “hence”, or “in other words” or “so what you are suggesting” or “are you saying that…” followed by the most implausible, irrelevant non sequiturs you can fantasize.

33. You have to remember that nobody but your adversaries, real or imagined are ever to blame for anything and no one should ever be accountable or held responsible for their words or actions - they’re just misunderstood or some such sociological mumbo-jumbo. Blaming without offering solutions is the typical modus operandi of Elitist Leftwing Liberals.

34. Remember our venerated motto: Victimhood is a veritable virtue! You have to be a victim of as many forms of melodrama as possible and be ever vigilant to promote victimization of almost anything and anyone although that’s very difficult to reconcile with the assertion that nobody’s to blame for anything they do, except, of course, the people who don’t agree with you. Whenever you get confused, remember the Double Standard will always come to your rescue when it’s difficult to justify victimhood to people who are rational.

35. You must always have Double Standards, a higher standard that you demand of nations, corporations and individuals you don’t like and especially people who don’t agree with you - and another set of standards for yourself and your Elitist Leftwing Liberal confederates which is preferably no standards at all.

36. You must with all your heart and soul hate America and Americans and bash them at every opportunity, while claiming you love America though you contend that American patriots are really traitors. And do remember to accuse people who don’t agree with you of being the ones who hate America and Americans. This won’t confuse people with IQs above eggplants, but remember some of our best friends are about as intellectually astute as ashtrays. While Elitist Leftwing Liberals hate red-blooded Americans, remember we have blood also and it’s always “B Negative”.

37. You must always remember that you are a member of the grown up 4-H and it is incumbent on you to always display their watchwords: hallucinations, hyperbole, hysteria and hate.

38. Remember to claim that the flag is only a piece of cloth and stands for nothing while you explain how you love America and that’s why you howl and hurl hateful epithets regarding America and Americans, especially those who disagree with you.

39. You are always to belittle and deride concepts such as optimism, patriotism, honor, honesty, faithfulness, fidelity, loyalty, courage, bravery, principles, trust, trustworthiness, reliability, responsibility, respect, common-courtesy, common decency, kindness, Good Samaritanism, sacrifice, patience, fortitude, values, integrity and character as being naive and passe. Call anyone who uses those words, “judgemental” and “intolerant”.

40. You are encouraged to lionize, venerate, yea, worship sloth, lust, self-centeredness, selfishness, instant gratification, slander, criminal behavior, drug addiction, degenerate behavior, promiscuous sex, lewd remarks and behavior, rudeness, crudeness, crassness, smutty language, vulgarity of all kinds, disrespect for authority, laws, law enforcement and military while showing respect for prostitution, drug dealing, gang-bangers, organized crime, pornography and generally everything that would aid in tearing down the social fabric of the United States of America and all she stands for.

41. Be sure to exhibit incessant anger at America and Americans in general and rage at conservatives, centrists and anyone who doesn’t agree with your ideas.

42. You must be “politically correct” when it suits your purpose and point out that political correctness is a form of freedom rather than more mind-control, but, it’s more important to demand that others be “politically correct” than actually follow those demands yourself.

43. You must always offer praise and/or excuses for all of America’s enemies, especially terrorists who aren’t really murdering cowards, but, rather multiculturally misunderstood.

44. You have to believe that just because your candidate lost an election (by all means stomp and shout “election fraud” or “stolen election”) or an unacceptable law was passed there’s always the possibility of going to court where an Elitist Leftwing Liberal judge is presiding so that you can get your way in spite of the wishes of the electorate and those of their congressional delegates as elections and legislation are more effectively decided by certain judges and their courts than by the voters and their legislatures. But, be sure to stress that you believe in the Constitution and remember to always claim that the candidate, election or law you don’t like is unconstitutional. In fact, for argumentation purposes, it’s always a good idea to claim that any law or action that doesn’t please you is unconstitutional as it’s an excellent buzzword and makes you sound like you might know something esoteric. After all, guys like Noam Chomsky and Alan Dershowitz made a career of such tactics.

45. Whenever someone says something that rubs your prejudgements the wrong way, ignore the contents of the remarks and vilify, defame, malign and slander that person while claiming everything that person has ever said or will ever utter is wrong. You are encouraged to take cheap shots and engage in name-calling and ad hominem attacks, but, above all, if you’re a true standard-bearer for the Elitist Leftwing Liberals, avoid discussing issues you can’t debate - which are, of course, all of them.

46. Honor multiculturalism and know its “truths”: “Multiculturalism, n. The doctrine that persons of European ancestry are morally inferior to all other human beings.” ~ John Derbyshire, inspired by Ambrose Bierce and his Devil’s Dictionary.

47. When confronted with something that is critical of Elitist Leftwing Liberals, read or listen to one or two lines and jump to conclusions (it’s the best exercise many Elitist Leftwing Liberals get) that the beginning was awful (meaning it might ask an Elitist Leftwing Liberal to actually think or to look at Elitist Leftwing Liberals in an uncomplimentary light) - and claim you didn’t bother to read the rest or listen to the remainder all the while claiming to be open-minded.

48. You must take it as your sworn duty to do your utmost to prevent people from printing, voicing, writing or otherwise disseminating any communication which is either unfavorable to or not in agreement with Elitist Leftwing Liberal dogma and you must also strictly enforce Political Correctness, while at the same time doing your best to muzzle and silence those who don’t agree with you. Tell adversaries to “Do as I say, and I’ll do as I please!” This is not censorship, hypocrisy or Double Standards, but rather, “Freedom of Speech” an important Constitutional Amendment written to give Elitist Leftwing Liberals their God-given rights, even if they renounce and don’t believe in God and even if they think rights are only for Elitist Leftwing Liberals.

49. If you don’t agree with the points of others, under no circumstances should you present a rational counter argument or discuss the issue itself when it is much more effective to call people liars and cast aspersions on their veracity. This is also effective if a person makes a mistake, don’t overlook or excuse the error or admit there was a possibility of a mistake - call them liars ferociously, unless it’s a petty sideline mistake that will help you construct smoke and mirrors, in that case see Article #30 above.

50. Conservatives suggest that people should “hate the sin, love the sinner”. Remember, as an Elitist Leftwing Liberal you must always hate the sinner [person or corporation who doesn’t agree with you] and love the sin as all sins are “relative” and finding anything wrong with them is “judgemental”. This may be difficult to grasp at first glance since Elitist Leftwing Liberals don’t believe in “sin” [unless it’s being applied via Double Standard, see Article #35, toward corporations or people who don’t agree with Elitist Leftwing Liberals] except for hypocrisy which is the only sin, when applied to our opponents and is one of the most effective slurs in our arsenal. See Article #54

51. You must never be willing to take the consequences of your own actions or words or expect your confederates to do the same as long as you can unjustly lay the blame on someone else. But, of course, it is critical that you demand that people who don’t agree with your ideas be held to strict adherence of taking the consequences of their actions: See Article #35 above regarding nurturing our trademark: Double Standards.

52. When asked to “cite” or give citations, sources or support for your propaganda, you can do one of 4 things: Use secondary sources which supposedly give “expert” Elitist Leftwing Liberal opinion on the primary sources when they’re not ignoring them, taking phrases out of context, twisting their words or perverting their meaning; make an official-looking, bogus website (provided you know someone who knows how to make one and is also literate enough to write without a spell check) with the fake “facts” you’ve presented; refer them to a propaganda site that may or may not support your claims or the third and preferred solution is to give them the URL of an official or universally accepted website and claim vehemently that the so-called information you’ve invented, created or faked is from that website though anyone who looks won’t find it there.

53. Remember, “A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money.” ~ G. Gordon Liddy

54. You have to support and promote socialized medicine as “Socialized medicine is based on the belief that, while individual bankruptcy by medical bills is tragic and wicked, bankrupting the entire country is beneficial and noble.” ~ Nicolas Martin [”If you think health care is expensive now, wait ’til you see how much it costs when it’s free.” ~ P. J. O’Rourke]

55. When your adversaries make statements that ring true, seem logical or appear to have merit, ask them completely irrelevant non sequitur questions in an attempt to evade the issue and derail the conversation. If that doesn’t work, announce with all due grandiosity that your opponents refuse to answer your questions or give cites, therefore, they cannot support their assertions. This ploy of course won’t work with people who can think, but, it will bring Elitist Leftwing Liberals and the lunatic fringe out of the woodwork to jump on your bellicose, bungling bandwagon.

56. You must always vociferously and incessantly point out that the reason any conservative’s failing is always major news is that it allows liberals to engage in their very favorite taunt: “Hypocrisy!” Hypocrisy is the only sin that really inflames us Elitist Leftwing Liberals and, of course, only applies to others because Liberals can always invoke the time-honored Double Standard. Inasmuch as Elitist Leftwing Liberals have no moral principles, we can sit back, march, or otherwise create a ruckus as we criticize other people for failing to meet the standards that liberals simply renounce. It’s an intriguing strategy. By openly admitting to being philanderers, draft dodgers, liars, weasels and cowards, liberals avoid ever being hypocrites. Remember, admission that morals and ethics are passe always gets you off the hook - but, do not hesitate to point out the immorality or unethical behavior of people who don’t agree with Elitist Leftwing Liberals.

57. Remember, as a cheerleader for decadence, when any despot, criminal or maniac is treated in any way differently from the way he treated others, it’s your sworn duty to scream to the heavens that he isn’t being treated with dignity and is being embarrassed in spite of the fact he may have raped, tortured, maimed and slaughtered others; as an Elitist Leftwing Liberal you must remain silent about the victims of despots, criminals and maniacs. The victims got what they deserved and despots, criminals and maniacs are to be honored, lionized, venerated and if they’re bad enough, worshipped.

58. As an Elitist Leftwing Liberal, you must believe that all America foreign policy must have the unanimous approval of France, Russia, Syria, Cuba, North Korea, Communist China and the United Nations.

59. You must learn to be agile at pulling the old Elitist Leftwing Liberal Switcheroo. Naturally in normal discourse, you must incessantly and nauseatingly bash your country, slur and slander the founding fathers and American istitutions like the police, FBI, CIA, etc., calling them terrorists and murderers, disparage all religions except Islam, denounce all military institutions and personnel, chide all people who have moral convictions and on and on [See articles 1-58]; but, remember, when trying to win a petty bickering match, employ the Elitist Leftwing Liberal Switcheroo - which means dropping your old mantras and bromides and immediately feigning to embrace your opponents’ views momentarily while you don the mask of reverence for those you hate, but are aware that your adversaries admire. This is particularly effective when showing mock concern for American armed services personnel who are in harms’ way under an administration that doesn’t have Elitist Leftwing Liberal Lemming approval. If you are successful enough in public discourse and if you exhibit it with enough ferocity and frequency, you may be eligible to win a toaster from The Elitist Leftwing Liberal Liberty Lobby.

60. As an Elitist Leftwing Liberal, you must be like a feminist bookstore in that you have no humor department, therefore display no sense of humor while making zero effort to distinguish between serious commentary and obvious humor, satire, and sarcasm. It helps clarify the profile of Elitist Leftwing Liberals.

61. As an Elitist Leftwing Liberal, you must shout “Hypocrite” and “Hypocrisy” whenever your fantasies indicate that an adversary accepts the entirety of a political party, political administration or political philosophy. If the person purports to have any disagreements with that political party, political administration or political philosophy, maliciously call them “Hypocrites” while foaming at the mouth, gnashing your teeth, beating your breasts and tearing your hair. It’s the Elitist Leftwing Liberal Catch-22 where you are going to brand them “Hypocrites” no matter what they say or do. After all, “Hypocrite” is our favorite word and the only sin we recognize - in others, of course.

62. You must always be conscious of Political Correctness. “‘You’re not allowed to call them dinosaurs anymore.’ said Yo-less. ‘It’s speciesist. You have to call them pre-petroleum persons.’” ~ Terry Pratchett

63. Remember, one of the Elitist Leftwing Liberal hallmarks is to try to instill fear and use whatever scare tactics are available. This in conjunction with doomsday prophecies, perennial pessimism and hopelessness, real or imagined, will hopefully amplify the fear in others. “Collective fear stimulates herd instinct, and tends to produce ferocity toward those who are not regarded as members of the herd.” ~ Bertrand Russell

64. Whenever someone offers documentation or legal proof, one effective method of obfuscation is to claim the documents, certificates, court orders or whatever were forged, fraudulent, fake or fudged. The same thing can be done when someone offers proof of candidates’ popularity because they were elected to office - you can merely spare the gore and claim the election was rigged and the rightful candidate was robbed. Remember Uncle Joe’s Maxim: “Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.” ~ Josef Stalin
Poor Uncle Joe didn’t know about using the courts to circumvent legislation and elections.

65. You must always insist that the _Holy Bible_ must never be read in schools - even by students who get free condoms (though it can be burned) but, it’s acceptable reading in penitentiaries and people testifying in court must swear on the _Holy Bible_, but, the _Bible’s_ “Ten Commandments” cannot be displayed at the courthouse by court order.

66. You, as an Elitist Leftwing Liberal, have to believe that all of the above is part of a vast right wing conspiracy.

Remember that in order for us to coerce loyalty we must levy severe warning that failure to adhere strictly to the demands presented in this consecrated manifesto is considered HERESY and could result in your not receiving invitations to important Elitist Leftwing Liberal functions such as homosexual marriages, ritual flag burnings, tossing medals (yours or anyone else’s) onto the White House lawn or marching in “Free Saddam Hussein” protest rallies wearing official footwear: John Kerry Flip-Flops.
STAY LEFT - YOU FOOL! ~ “No amount of money, influence, persuasion or words can possibly paint Elitist Leftwing Liberals in a worse light than they gladly portray themselves!”
