Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right
We've certainly heard of a few 9-11 Denier Democrats running for public office, a couple Greens and some Libertarians. But this is the first Republican 9-11 nutbar
that I can recall.
In an editorial board interview with The Telegraph on Wednesday, the candidate, Mary Maxwell, said the U.S. government had a role in killing nearly 3,000 people at the World Trade Center and Pentagon, so it could make Americans hate Arabs and allow the military to bomb Muslim nations such as Iraq.
Maxwell would not specify if she holds the opinion that the government stood by while terrorists hijacked four domestic airliners and used them as weapons, or if it had a larger role by sanctioning and carrying out the attacks.
Let me guess, she's just asking questions? And this is pretty wild:
She said this strategy “would be normal” for governments, citing her belief that the British government – and not the Germany military – sank the Lusitania ocean liner in 1915. The deaths of Americans on the cruise liner helped galvanize U.S. support to enter World War I, and benefited England, she said.
Interesting stuff indeed. Has anybody ever suggested that perhaps it was the French who bombed Pearl Harbor? Cui bono, indeed!
I did a little poking around on her website
. She doens't have any issues page per se, but she's very much a nut. For example she hopes Bush dumps Cheney. Among her reasons
The rise to best seller status of John Dean’s book Conservatives Without Conscience which paints a devastating picture of Cheney....
Well, hey, if John Dean doesn't like him, that's good enough for me! (sarcasm)
