A Tale of Fake Truthers

casseia's picture

Once upon a time, a new poster appeared at a few 9/11 Truth discussion sites. He endeared himself to the regulars at one such board, despite the fact that he admitted to having just dropped out of high school, by toeing the fake truther party line about Muslims and LIHOP and Pentagon jets (oh my). Now he's not a truther at all, anymore -- being allegedly one of that vanishingly rare species, the ex-truther. He comments at the leading 9/11 debunker site.

Expect more of this: truthers with a high-profile shtick suddenly "seeing the light" and trying to drag others down with them into that pit of bad faith and celebratory cognitive dissonance: debunkerism.

(You can google Arcterus and Screw Loose Change for more details.)
