Racist, Right-wing Truthers Making Us All Look Bad, Yet Again

This article at a site calling itself "TruthAlliance.net" has been getting some response over at Truefaction, where several posters are just horrified at what the bad, bad direct actionistas in Denver are planning for the Democratic National Convention and the risks that truthers will be taking by associating with a group called Re-create 68. The "Truth Alliance" article reveals the kind of authority-fellation that is a real problem in some wings of the Peace Movement and the Truth Movement as well, along with some nice doses of racism and evidently some outright slander of a Denver anti-imperialist group called Revolutionary Anti-Imperialist Movement - Denver. The RAIMD folks have taken notice and have posted an anti 9/11 Truth article on their front page. In the comments below, after some racist asshole Truther comes by and threatens to beat them up, metaphorically speaking, we see that they are given a good opportunity to smear all of us with the racist nutjob/politically superficial brush:

I have come to find out if what the Truth Alliance was saying was true. I am undecided as to whether or not you are working for the government knowingly, however I am sure as hell that you are not working in the best interests of the movement or of United States citizens.
You dont like it here? Go to Mexico, see how you like it there, but you will never have Mexico north of the Rio Grande. Not till I’m nice and dead!
You have found yourself a willing and active enemy. I will be spreading the word against your movement.

It’s no surprise that the “9-11 Truth Movement” has a foundation in white populism. Thanks for making it obvious.

Fuck off nutjob racists,
Viva Mexico,

My comment is awaiting moderation -- it will be interesting to see if they post it:

Yep, I visited because of the racist nutjob “Truth Alliance” article — which I read, aghast. You are correct that the 9/11 Truth movement has many profound problems. Where you are incorrect is in your assertion that all of us who organize our resistance to Empire around resistance to the 9/11 spectacle are racists. Many of us are anti-racists/anti-Zionists who see 9/11 as the big lie used to facilitate the demonization of the Arab/Muslim world and the wars of aggression against it. Seeing through 9/11 offers one means to see straight to the diseased heart of Empire.

I also linked to us and I wonder if anyone will visit and check out the Real Truth Movement.
