I Graciously Accept Rolling Stone’s Obnoxiousness Award – Now Where’s My Check?

Since an excited friend emailed me that I had won Matt Taibbi’s “Most Obnoxious Thing on the Internet This Month” award, I have been looking forward to my $10,000 check and working on my acceptance speech. Here is a draft of that speech:

Ladies and gentlemen…I stand before you humbled, awed, and amazed to have been recognized as the author of the most obnoxious thing on the internet.

My late father, a two-time Olympic medalist, had to triumph over thousands of talented and determined racing sailors. Muhammad Ali, to become “the greatest” (boxer of all time), had to beat out hundreds of thousands who have tried their fists at boxing. But to become the recognized leader in internet obnoxiousness…that, I am proud to say, is a nonpareil achievement.

Today, we are living in a world in which literally billions of people are competing in internet obnoxiousness:  a world where cyber-hate and flame wars and even death threats abound, a world where internet porn takes up the lion’s share of the bandwidth, a world in which a Google search for “Palin boob job” returns 110,000 hits. To even place in the top ten million, in internet obnoxiousness, is a magnificent accomplishment.

How, you may ask, did I manage this astonishing feat? To what do I owe my supreme success? What does it take to reach the coveted number one position?

As it turns out, my triumph — for all it owed to hard work, pluck, determination, and a certain natural ability to be really, REALLY obnoxious — finally boiled down to one thing: pure, unadultrated luck.

Taibbi, explaining why he felt compelled to award me the Obnoxiousness Prize, gave me high marks for my basic concept: the proposal for a taxpayer-funded mega-mosque at Ground Zero sporting Twin Minarets to replace the nanothermite-demolished Towers, erected as a monumental apology for falsely blaming Muslims for 9/11. But as it turns out, that wasn’t enough. It was my proposal for a 9/11 truth museum that did the trick.

Taibbi explains:

He goes on. Note the excellent suggestion that the Mosque should house an “unflattering wax figurine” of former 9/11 landlord Larry Silverstein:

This mosque should house a 9/11 Truth Museum documenting the evidence that 9/11 was carried out by U.S. and Israeli insiders, not Muslims. It could include such artifacts as the laughably bogus “last will and testament of Mohammed Atta,” pieces of airplane wreckage from earlier crashes that were planted at the alleged 9/11 crash sites, WTC structural steel samples showing melting and evaporation caused by explosives, videos and other objects seized from the Israeli Mossad team that filmed and celebrated their colleagues’ destruction of the World Trade Center, unflattering wax figures of such 9/11 villains as Dick Cheney, Larry Silverstein, and Benjamin Netanyahu, and samples of nanothermite-laden World Trade Center dust.

So not only should there be a Mosque at Ground Zero, the Mosque should include an unflattering and undoubtedly absurdly anti-Semitic wax caricature of the Towers’ Jewish landlord. If that isn’t the “This one goes to eleven” moment of conspiratorial quackery, I’m not sure what is. If anyone else has found something more offensive in the Ground Zero discussion, let me know, but for now this is my clubhouse leader.

What incredible luck! When I wrote the piece, I had randomly selected Cheney, Silverstein and Netanyahu (I might as easily have included Rumsfeld and Myers) as 9/11 villains, purely on the basis of evidence for their complicity in 9/11, without any thought of their ethnicity. In fact, when I try to imagine unflattering wax figures of these three, the one that comes to my mind’s eye is the naturally-hideous Cheney. But fortunately for me, when Matt Taibbi hears the name “Larry Silverstein,” he immediately imagines a stereotypical caricature of a hook-nosed Jew. Apparently it was Taibbi’s own obnoxiously bigoted imagination, in purely fortuitous juxtaposition with my own undeniable genius for relatively innocent obnoxiousness, that carried the day.

So, while I am flattered by Taibbi’s Obnoxiousness Award, I am not sure that it is not Taibbi himself who deserves it. Here are a few questions for him.

Hey Matt! Why are you so quick to imagine Silverstein, whose fingerprints are all over 9/11, as a stereotypical hook-nosed Jew…and then to condemn your own depraved imagination by projecting it on me? Are you equally disgusted by the millions of stereotypically “Muslim” images of Bin Laden–who, by the way,  repeatedly denied any involvement in 9/11 and deplored the attacks as un-Islamic before his death in December 2001?

Since Taibbi is experiencing a powerful inner conflict between the anti-Jewish stereotypes he cannot help entertaining, and a superego commanding him “don’t say anything negative about Jews” (actually that may be the media-dominators he works for, rather than his superego, issuing the command), I wonder how he would react to this article in Veterans Today:  Israeli Control of America

For the next Obnoxiousness Award, I nominate Israeli Control of America–which, unlike my mega-mosque proposal, actually DOES talk about Jews and Jewish power in America. The only question is whether it is the article itself, or the list of facts it contains, that is disturbing.

Anyway…In gratitude for his generous decision to honor me with the coveted Obnoxiousness Award, I have coined a new expression and named it after my esteemed benefactor.

Taibbi’s truism: When truth is obnoxious, only the obnoxious can tell the truth.

    Great, hilarious and so true at the same time 🙂

    Taibi, a morocan name between you and me,

    Glad to see someone of MY ethnicity has taken the prize for obnoxiousness. Can the Nobel Prizes and control over the entertainment industry be far behind? Maybe we will have our own little colony somewhere…sort of like Rhodesia used to be back in the day.

  3. Congratulations Mr. B. Well done. What an honor to be "sacked" by Taibbi and Rolling Stone. Golly and once upon a time, Rolling Stone almost mattered. Alas, that was a long time ago.
    T'would seem that in our post modern 9/11 early twenty first century world of swirl, 'obnoxious' is a badge of honor. Almost like being tagged as 'antiSemitic'. My Aunty Semitic once told me that Jews with hooked noses were some manner of Germanic myth. Aunty Semitic never ever went further in explanations or offered any highlight as to what she might mean. Sort of leaves a clueless western "goyim" wondering what the fuss is all about.

    There is more to the story. Do a search on Taibbi, "Goldman Sachs", anti-Semitism. Kevin, don't take it personally, this guy doesn't know what hit him. It is PTSD.

  5. You should meet Wigan Pete Greenall. I think he's got you beat.

  6. I simply love the idea of a 9/11 Truth Museum. Couldn't Jimmy Walter be persuaded to build one, commissioning Richard Gage to design it?

    Matt Taibbi is a hack, just like his father.

  9. Kevin!

    Wonderful! Not only do get a great award, you will earn millions of new fans like myself. Cheers! Let's have a drink tonight…. To success! Well done!

  10. Good points.

    Taibbi is an Arab name, Goldman Sachs is Jewish. So if Taibbi writes uncomplimentary things about Goldman Sachs, he gets called anti-Semitic and has to watch it or he'll become the next Helen Thomas. No wonder he projects his anxieties on truthers and sees hook-nosed Jews everywhere.

    So, most obnoxious one, you are now claiming the Rolling Stone is a Zionist rag!!! Does your now famous obnoxiousness know no bounds? Are you not aiding and abetting the hideous terrorists who still hate us for our much diminished freedom? How dare you for speaking the truth. We God fearing people hate the truth and all that comes with it. There is a warm place waiting for you and your kind.

    This reminds me of a verse from "We Can Be Together" from the Jefferson Airplane's "Volunteers" album:

    We are the forces of chaos and anarchy
    Everything they say we are, we are
    And we are very proud of ourselves

    Up against the wall
    Up against the wall, motherfuckers

    Dear Kevin,
    I am scare. Yes I am scare. I think they will find me. I am thinking to delete my profile in Facebook for ever. Change my yahoo and Google accounts. Disappear from the web. I don’t want the red pill anymore. I’m thinking to take the blue one and keep going paying taxes and feed my family before it’s too late. But I know it’s too late already. They can search all. They can see all. They can manipulate all … haaaaaaaa … (Don’t worry Kevin, it’s just one of my personalities, the scary one. My human being is excited and full of energy watching the Present, watching the Information breaking the walls. Thanks to you and many of you that have the courage to think, write, and speak against the majority and the power. With your courage and example you will switch the awake of the rest of the world. UK, Spain, Italy, Greece, they are still a sleeping beauty.

    RE: Larry Silverstein and the Sears Tower.

    We need to get the word out to everyone!! May be we can stop them this time!!

    Thought you might be interested in this article:

    What Do The Sears Tower; WTC, and Terror Drills Have In Common?

    It is the same scenario as the WTC! Kroll was the security company for the WTC Bldg Complex also! The Sears Tower needs a lot of upgrades and repairs!

    Sounds like they're setting up Chicago for a hit eventually!

    Pass this on to everyone you know!


  19. Kevin, you know, you're close to the truth when the opposition is sending flak in your direction!

    It's a great blog entry!

    Excellent job Kevin! I suppose that Taibbi himself couldn't qualify for this "Most Obnoxious Thing…" award because he would be double-dipping. Keep up the great work in speaking for 9/11 Truth and the "real victims" from 9/11. You are appreciated.

    Karl in Cincy

  21. Well done, Dr. Barrett! I wonder what Taibbi's blindspot about 9/11 being an inside job is all about, anyway? I mean, anyone who can understand the machinations of Goldman-Sachs the way he does can surely see through the fraud of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory too? I suppose Taibbi still believes that Oswald was the lone gunman, too, even when his own publication, Rolling Stone, featured an article about E. Howard Hunt admitting that he was running one of the hit-squads in Dallas, TX on that day!

  22. Another excellent post, Kevin. Your irrepressible humor as usual carries the day. No insults. No indignation. Just laughter, because you know you speak the truth. Well done!
    Oh petty, shallow, unenlightened Mr. Taibbi, shame on you – and pity for The Rolling Stone!

    Congratulations on the award!

    I was a teenage reader of Rolling Stone when they absolutely REFUSED to cover the hardcore punk rock explosion in the US 30 years ago. Now, they claim they were a part of "punk history".

    I soon switched to Spin Magazine in 1985.

    So it should be no surprise that Rolling Stone Magazine won't cover 9/11 Truth, like punk rock- it's too extreme!

    Not quite sure why folks like Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner oogle over this gay guy- Matt Taibbi?

    In fact, Taibbi wrote this chapter on the "9/11 Truth Movement" called "The Derangement of The American Left" in his 2008 book "The Great Derangement". However, I have to give him credit.

    Anytime liberals mock 9/11 Truth like he did in that book, it made me want to check out "We Are Change"!

    Taibbi also HATES the Tea Party! He must be trying to sleep his way into the boys only crew that provide CNN's Anderson Cooper his nighttime frolicking?

    Wasn't it "Anderson Cooper Vanderbilt" that coined the phrase "Tea Bagger"?

    I know a phony New York liberal when I see Matt Taibbi. Years ago, I also read his column in the NY Press (Free Weekly Rag in NYC).

    Kevin: Again congrats on the award!

    King "Mike" Bloomberg has been a Democrat, Repubipig and now an Indie. He's very clever as he knows which way the winds blows! He says he supports "Freedom Of Religion". If he really supports the US Constitution then perhaps one day "The Sovereign" will inquire if he supports someone flying a Conferderate Flag in Harlem? Inquiring minds want to know!

    "King" Mike also has a terrible record on the 2nd Amendment as he used to sick his Ivy League trained Laywers to sue little Mom and Pop gun shops in North Carolina and Virginia.

    Again, Kevin congrats on the award!

    As the Illuminati roll out World War III right before our eyes, we can thank Rolling Stone Magazine for its small part in keeping the truth about 9/11 under wraps long enough for the psychopaths who run this world to continue their dark dealings.

    The only thing that's obnoxious is secrecy: Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny, and secrecy is the Illuminati's alpha and omega.

    I realise this brings tastelessness to a level only imagined by a few of our society's Lightbearers, such as Bill Maher, but at this proposed gathering you mention, why not construct a mini-Twin Towers from which people can hurl themselves to the ground (a trampoline may be placed at an appropriate spot below, if you wish) for a fee, which will constitute their financial contribution to your cause. Please invite Al Franken, as well. Surely he will have something inspirational to add. If it will contribute to attendance, I'd be happy to organise a false-flag attack on your gathering – this would be a motley collection of infidels dressed in, say, white robes or whatever. We could call it The Attack Of The Dhimmis. I don't honestly think that even these tactics would bring down the National Security Agency, all 27 Czars (or have I lost track of the true number by now?), or the Cecils, Rothchilds, & Gingriches (being in a decidedly pessimistic mood right now, I'm assuming there is more thasn one of them), but we won't go down without a fit.

    The whole 'mosque' thing smells like an intelligence gin-up on all sides. No one cared 6 months ago…Now it's cause celebre, just in time for 9./11/10

    Cordoba House is closer to the old (and new) Building 7 site, bounded by Vesey & Barclay
    The issue that no muslims were involved in the collapse of building 7 seems to present an opportunity to combine the issues (cultural center, Building 7) for even more fun..

    No one objected to Larry Silverstein rebuilding at the site, whereas he made a ton of money on the disaster. Muslims profited not one bit by 9/11. Looking forward to that wax figurine of the man who used to call Bibi every sunday …

    With Taibbi's article, Rolling Stone has outed themselves as left wing gatekeepers. Kinda makes one wonder what they knew about old Hunter Thompson's demise.

  29. Yes; everyone knows now that Israel was behind 9-11. Also steered us to war against Arab countries. We have an enemy–it is not Muslim. We all know this. Their days of fooling everyone are over.

  30. The rest of us will try harder to not pad the truth. Israel be damned.

  31. And to think that ROlling Stone actually compared Taibbi to infamous Boho Grove attendee Hunter Thompson? Thompson said when interviewed on the actual day, 9-11-01, that it was an "inside job" and that 'no guy in a cave 1000's of miles away on a sat phone could have done this'. At least Hunter S. told the truth. Taibbi is straight Shabba Goy crypto propagandist.

  32. Ladies and gentlemen…I stand before you humbled, awed, and amazed to have been recognized as the author of the most obnoxious thing on the internet.
