Video: “Loose Change” morons confronted by cop at Ground Zero (Update: Dylan Avery on talk radio tonight)

Yesterday’s video was only part one; the second and third installments are below. Their attempt to convince a woman that her husband was killed by the government, not Al Qaeda, is especially heart-warming.
Why do I keep posting about this crap? Because a lot of people take it seriously:
More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East, according to a new Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll…
Thirty-six percent of respondents overall said it is “very likely” or “somewhat likely” that federal officials either participated in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon or took no action to stop them “because they wanted the United States to go to war in the Middle East.”
“One out of three sounds high, but that may very well be right,” said Lee Hamilton, former vice chairman of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also called the 9/11 Commission)… “A lot of people I’ve encountered believe the U.S. government was involved,” Hamilton said.
For some reason, they didn’t think to ask how that 36 percent breaks down ideologically. Or maybe they did and found the result “inconvenient.”
Dylan Avery happens to be a big Noam Chomsky fan, a shocking fact he revealed years ago in a comment at LGF.
I encourage everyone with a blog to host the first video in this series on their own site. You’ll find the embed code in the right sidebar here. Just paste it into your post and you’re good to go.
On with the show. Episode 2:
Update: 5 p.m., 96.9 FM in Boston, Dylan Avery will be given another mainstream media platform to spout lies. I sure hope none of our readers call in!
