Coming to UK theaters on 9/11/07: Loose Change

posted at 9:10 am on May 25, 2007 by Allahpundit

They aired it on television somewhere last year on 9/11 too (Australia, maybe?), just to rub a little extra salt in the wound.

First there was the Bush snuff film, then the Tony Blair war-crimes tribunal daydream, and now this. Follow the comments after you click to see how it’s being received. As Charles Johnson is wont to say, there’s a bad kind of crazy in the British air these days.

In the distributor’s defense, there’s clearly a market for it: a poll of British Muslims last year found that 45% believed 9/11 was a Zionist/American conspiracy. I hope some right-wing media outlet over there has the good sense to try to get demographic data about who’s buying tickets after it’s released. No doubt the results would be highly “nuanced.”

Semi-related: this has the vice of being grossly unfair but the virtue of being really funny, so I’m linking it.

I’ve been in Europe for three straight weeks now. I’m leaving the UK tomorrow morning for the return flight home, and I can’t wait.

I’m just wondering how long it is until the families of the victims of 9/11 sue these little pricks for all they’re worth.

These frauds are doing all of this precisely because they knew they could make names for themselves and make a quick buck. All using cheap tricks to fool dumb viewers. Reprehensible.

Yes, I do believe they aired Loose Change “2″ (because facts need a sequel) on the History channel as part of their “9/11 remembrance” lineup or some crap.

‘Twas such a disappointing leap backwards for them, as I recall a time when an overwhelming number of ‘documentaries’ on that channel were, well, not exactly restricted by historical fact – but they’d been gradually improving up until then..

Allah, you and Michelle are going to end up on Olbermann’s “Worst Person[s] in the World” for that one.

Bush Derangement Syndrome with a British accent. Proof positive that the best of Britain died at the Somme 89 years ago.

Makes one wonder how many more bueses, trains and people need to be killed in the UK before reality really sinks in. But the libs of course need to be ousted. They need a Thatcher like the base here keeps wishing for a Reagan.

The comments are hilarious.

These are the people that Rotard O’Donnell listens to.

You knew I’d stop by to say: “Toldja so” on the mainstreaming of Trutherism. This is only the beginning.
