Closet 9/11 truther Michael Moore, one of America’s all-time great political filmmakers, has come out in favor of my “build a mega-mosque ON Ground Zero” proposal — and started raising the construction money! (My proposal won Matt Taibbi’s award for most obnoxious thing on the internet.)
In a recent article, Moore writes:
“I am opposed to the building of the ‘mosque’ two blocks from Ground Zero.
I want it built on Ground Zero…”
Like me, Michael Moore wants to see a mega-mosque with minaret(s) as high as the demolished Towers:
“…But to even have to assure people that ‘it’s not going to be mosque’ is so offensive, I now wish they would just build a 111-story mosque there. That would be better than the lame and disgusting way the developer has left Ground Zero an empty hole until recently.”
Then Moore drops a bombshell: “The remains of over 1,100 people still haven’t been found.” This little-known fact is, all by itself, proof positive that the Towers were destroyed with powerful explosives, which blasted human bodies, office furniture and equipment, filing cabinets, computers, concrete, and everything else except the buildings’ steel frames into tiny solid fragments mixed into a sea of dust the consistency of talcum powder — a six-inch “snowfall” that blanketed Manhattan. Had the Towers simply pancaked down due to gravity, the bodies of every victim, along with all of the office furniture and equipment, would have been found, smashed but basically intact, between the pancaked floors. Instead, there were no pancaked floors at Ground Zero, and only one filing cabinet– out of many thousands — was ever found.
According to Ground Zero cleanup worker Joe Casaliggi, Engine 7: “You have two hundred and ten story office buildings. You don’t find a desk. You don’t find a chair. You don’t find a telephone, a computer. The biggest piece of a telephone I found was about half of a keypad and it was about this big [the size of a post-it].”
In short, the contents of the Towers had been pulverized. Nor were there any intact bodies, just tiny bone slivers and bits of flesh that had been blasted to smithereens and, in many cases, propelled hundreds of feet outward and upward to land on the streets and rooftops of neighboring buildings.
At the end of his article, Michael Moore says he will match the first $10,000 raised to help build the mosque he wants built on Ground Zero (though the Burlington Coat Factory site would be better than nothing).
Since Mike and I share a sense of humor and a predilection for political provocation, I think we’d do a great radio show together. Please write to Michael Moore (mike[at]michaelmoore[dot]com) and ask him to contact me (kbarrett[at]merr[dot]com) so I can book him on my radio show. You can mention that I don’t mind that he stole my idea — it’s a great idea, after all — but would appreciate the chance to discuss it with him on the radio!
29 Thoughts to “Michael Moore Endorses My “Build a Mega-Mosque ON Ground Zero” Project; Begins Fundraising!”
I wish he'd just admit that 9/11 was an inside job, and stop blaming the Saudis. (Is he covering up for Israel?)
it seems to me the proposal to build a mosque at or near ground zero is a staged issue to create a controversy to distract from the fox in the henhouse. the fox news stock holder being in support of those likely false muslims, etc, etc… michael moore is hardly a great filmmaker. he is a left gate keeper, i think. i mean with rahm emanuel's brother as his agent, how can be anything else?
I honestly think all that would accomplish would be to totally polarize New Yorkers and Americans. Having been down at Ground Zero on 9/11, I can tell you it wasn’t a pretty picture. Some follower of the nut-cake preacher showed at the crowded, noisy bull-horn rally, and ripped pages from a Koran, then set them and the book on fire. His rationale was, “if they can burn American flags, I can burn Korans.” Talk about inflaming passions. The cops, who were there in droves, took him away. They didn’t arrest him.
As a side-bar, the Right-to-Lifers turned up at a separate but nearby rally, with a truck pulling a large billboard on a trailer. It showed in full color, huge blowup of a dead fetus. Argggh! I think the more you threaten these loons, the more they come out. What’s more, Imam Rauf is on the Religious Affairs Committee of the Council on Foreign Relations. His funding would come from the Rockefellers and friends to put up the building.
Bottom line, the 9/11 rally to reinvestigate what happened got pushed aside. In fact, it’s retreating actually into not talking about Mossad involvement, which is where I think the drum needs to be beat. Bring me the bad guys. Don’t let the Muslims take the rap for something they didn’t do, de facto, by siding with this project. Build it, but give it a respectable distance. For many years the grand Mosque and Minaret have stood tall and proud on Third Avenue and West 96th Street. I don’t remember any problems with it as it was built or after. It’s a neighborhood landmark like any church or synagogue.
Good points, Jerry.
Michael Moore's approach — doing it without 9/11 truth — is polarizing. I'm re-envisioning it as a 9/11 truth thing. Once Americans realize that they falsely blamed Muslims for 9/11 and then murdered a million Muslims, they'll be ready to build the mega-mosque, among other means of atonement. Meanwhile I'm just trying to turn this hideous propaganda campaign to good purposes.
By the way, your report on NYC 9/11 activities was excellent!
What would even be better would be to build it like a luxury hotel and name it the welcome illegal aliens of the World reception and free
benefits assignment and education to get more while working off the record Center ! Having all illegal aliens after being flown in by Obama on an air force aircraft spend a month or two living there like a basic training
to take on the "Ugly Americans' That formerly suppressed your country and forced you to flee here !
Dear Kevin, Peace be upon you and within you and your house., FYI: Building Mosques is forbidden by God:-,
Surah 9:107. And there are those who put up mosques (etc.), by way of mischief, and BETRAYAL – to disunite the Believers – and in preparation for one who warred, against "I AM" (Revelation 12:7) and His Messenger aforetime. They will indeed, swear that their intention is nothing but good; but "I AM" doth declare that, they are certainly LIARS.
9:108. Never stand thou forth therein. There is a Temple (House of God – Kaba – on Mt. Moriah) whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety;, it is more worthy of the standing forth (for prayer) therein. In it are men, who love to be purified; and "I AM" loveth those who make themselves pure. 9:109. Which then is best? – he that layeth his foundation on piety (a Rock
– Matthew 7:24-27) to "I AM" and His Good Pleasure? – or he that layeth his, foundation on an undermined sand-cliff ready to crumble to pieces? And it, doth crumble to pieces with him, into the fire of Hell. And "I AM" guideth, not people that do wrong (if they are doing wrong Satan is guiding them)., 9:110. The foundation of those who so build is never free from suspicion and, shakiness in their hearts, until their hearts are cut to pieces. And "I AM", is All- Knowing, Wise., http://jahtruth.net/nomos.htm, No-one ever does as God tells them, because they all think they know better than, God. All this chaos is the result of that arrogance and disobedience., Best regards, JAH.
None of that says anything about building mosques.
Anyone with half a brain knows the CIA henchmen represent the american gestapo and were involved, as were the illuminati jewish banksters of the federal reserve, and all the other individual and corporate facists of our time like The bushes, the english royal crown, the saudi arabians, etc., etc., but the fact that over 1100 bodies were never found should smack you right in the face as insurance fraud!! How naive can you be? Also, building a mosque only plays into their hands with religious fights as does this idiot "15 minute famer" from florida wanting to burn the koran. Wake up to the fact that GOD exists in another realm and he aint (ok isn't) coming down here to help you with these psychopathic criminals. This place is obviously some sort of purgatory existence so do the best you can for the others you can help get through this life.
I am not the commenter, but if you do a quran search you will find the word "mosque", and it says: "Never stand thou forth therein. There is a Temple (House of God – Kaba) whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety;, it is more worthy of the standing forth (for prayer) therein." This would go perfectly with the idea that Islam is unorganized religion.
Die-hard fan here. Of both you and Kevin Barrett!
Please accept Kevin's invitation to present on his show, which has hosted many remarkable guests!
What does this have to do with 9/11 truth? All it does is give ammunition to the blind. After stoking the fire of a person that has done no education will they now even look at truth? I think this is a distraction and worthless if your goal is to get people to look at the facts. If your goal is to create controversy well this will work. Just my opinion.
What it has to do with 9/11 truth is that Muslims were falsely blamed for 9/11 and then persecuted and mass-murdered, and are now owed a very big apology and reparations.
Yes, I know this "WTC mosque" issue is an astroturf controversy manufactured by the neocons to reinforce their big lie that Muslims did 9/11. But it's a controversy in which one side (Moore's) is the only rational one, while the other side is made up of pea-brained haters who want to burn the Constitution. Imagine a "controversy" about, say: Should 10,000 non-white people be randomly picked out by the national police and boiled alive? Even if such a controversy were manufactured for nefarious political ends, sane people would be screaming "hell, no! WTF is wrong with you that you could take this position?" The same is true with the "mosque controversy." No sane person — even one ignorant enough to still believe the 19 hijackers myth — could possibly oppose building a house of worship anywhere in the USA based on which specific religion it was. That's called hatemongering and burning the Constitution.
Michael Moore writes in a follow-up post, http://www.michaelmoore.com/words/mike-friends-blog/thousands-true-americans-respond-call-donations-islamic-center
I knew that many of you would respond to my call to help out the embattled Islamic community center being built in lower Manhattan. I asked each of you to send a dollar (or five or ten) to their nonprofit organization, Cordoba Initiative, as a symbolic act against the bigotry Muslim Americans are facing. To help kick it off, I promised to match dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000, hoping to raise somewhere near that number by the end of this week.
That's not what happened.
Within hours of posting that blog on Saturday, so many thousands of you had responded, we were already far beyond the $10,000 goal. In fact, as of this morning, we're estimating that the funds raised from you have exceeded an amazing $50,000!
The people at the Islamic center are very appreciative that so many thousands have chosen to come forward in support of America and our First Amendment. And I, too, want to express my gratitude. (Anyone can contribute by clicking here.) Times are tough economically, and supporting our Muslim brothers and sisters is not a popular thing to do right now. I am truly touched by your generosity — and people around the world will know that you, too, represent an America they rarely get to see… http://www.michaelmoore.com/words/mike-friends-blog/thousands-true-americans-respond-call-donations-islamic-center
Kevin, is the borther of Raham Emanuel in charge of the business of Michael Moore ? Do you have any confirmation about this ? I remember the czars in the white house syaing to destroy thruthers , infiltrate them, you are idea is good, but do you really need Moore endorsement to get it to the masses ?
en francais dans le texte, les enemis de mes enemis ne sont pas forcement mes amis … if you know what I mean
Hayak Allah brother
Again, who do you work for Kevin? Are you aware that you are being used to further and ignite hate?
To fight for the truth is one thing but to suggest building a religious monument at a place people still relate to the horrible events of 911, in connection to that religion, is truly ignorant and makes me wonder about you and your causes.
It would only add to the confusion and certainly provoke violence.
Who are you working for Kevin, and are you aware of what you're suggesting?
Anonymous, if you relate 9/11 to the Islamic religion, or are an apologist for those who do, you're a Big Liar and an accessory to genocide…in which case I know exactly who you're working for (whether or not you're getting paid).
I heard this rumor about Emmanuel's brother being Moore's manager but haven't seen it confirmed.
Yes, Ari Emmanuel is Mr. Moore's agent.
Say it ain't so, Mike!
Increasingly Kevin, you seem to be taking this whole thing personally. The invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq were, as you know, about oil and power and had nothing to do with religion. This is not a war against Islam, but a war against freedom. Do you seriously think that America would think twice before raping and pillaging a country because of its belief system? Asking Michael Moore what he thinks might have happened to the remains of those eleven hundred people and why he is so silent about 9/11 would be more pertinent and useful.
Spoken like a good dialectical materialist.
But actually I think the "belief system" (and way of life) of Islam does pose a threat to the usury-driven New World Order…and an even bigger threat to the Jewish apartheid state in Occupied Palestine.
The US would have an easier path to oil and power if it pulled the plug on Israel and tried to build up the power and unity of the Middle Eastern Islamic world as a hedge against China (and to a lesser extent India and Russia). It's the Zionists who are impeding this natural "monotheists' alliance" that would amount to an energy-for-security partnership of equals. To keep Israel going, they have to smash the Islamic world. That's why the Zionists did 9/11: to con the US into smashing Islam for Israel — against the US's own geostrategic interest.
It sounds good, Kevin. I will email Michael Moore. This may finally best your 2006 appearances on FOX!
AMY GOODMAN: Wait, you have to explain. Ari who?
MICHAEL MOORE: Ari Emanuel. Oh, yes, that’s right. Ari Emanuel, his brother has a night job at the White House.
AMY GOODMAN: Called Rahm Emanuel.
MICHAEL MOORE: Yes, Rahm Emanuel is his brother. So I’ve—ah, geez, well, that’s another show.
MICHAEL MOORE: Yeah, it was—man, that was quite a trip. We should talk about that sometime, because it was such an eye-opener for me. And I’ll never forget the absolute devastating poverty that we witnessed in Gaza, especially that—even though I had traveled other places around the world, I had never seen anything like that. But that’s for another show.
Anyway, so I’m in Washington, DC. We’re editing Roger & Me, and it’s January 20th of 1989. George the First was being inaugurated. And I said to the editors, "Why don’t we go over and watch—I had never seen an inauguration." So we walked over there on the Mall, and they had these big TV screens. And up on the podium behind George Bush was Kevin, Kevin Rafferty, who had—like, was my teacher, taught me how to make this film and everything. And I’m thinking, oh, he must be making a movie, or I wonder how—how did he get access up there? It was just so weird, you know? He was like three rows behind Bush.
And so, a couple days later, I called him up, and I said, "I could have sworn I saw you sitting up there behind the President." And he said, "Yeah, that was me." And I said, "Well, were you making a movie, or did you just get special tickets, or—or what?" He said, "No. The President’s my uncle." He had never told me. His mother and Barbara Bush were sisters. And it was just—it was like—it was so shocking to hear this. And I was like—and then, when the movie came out, Bush, elder Bush, wanted to have a screening at Camp David for the extended family, because it was cousin Kevin’s camera work in the movie. And so, there was this screening there. And I wasn’t allowed into the screening, but I asked him later what it was like. And he said, "Well, it was kind of quiet in there, except there was—one of my cousins, he was laughing a lot, but I don’t think it was because of the movie." Another George. It was the first time I heard that name. So, anyways, that’s why I’ve never really wanted to say a bad word about the Bush family, because if it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be a filmmaker. So I have an enormous amount of gratitude. So that’s how I got my start.
I like Michael Moore, I also like Amy Goodman and Democracy Now!
But I won't forget Israels' connections to and involvement in 9/11.
so Moore was honest and told it in public…
I have the strong feeling that many of the latest videos released by the authorities about 911 were doctored to sabotage the 911 truther movement from within, the video of the missile hiting the pentagone, I've seen at Chris Bollyn site is a very bad manufacture and it is obviously a fake… So if Moore wants to rally now with you Kevin, I have no problem with it, but I won't forgot that dual citizen american-israelis were behind 911 and other terrorists operations, as I will never forget that dual french-israeli and algerian-israelis were behind the civil war in north africa and that they created fake islamic groups GIAs long time before Al Qaeda appeared in the world stage.
There is an arabic proverb syaing this : 'When you go fishing, you capture fishes only once', means that fishes die only one time, you can't fish the same fishes several times… or 'fish dies only one time'…. une fois ca passe mais la c'est trop gros mon frere… After this is up to you
Wa Allah swt 'alam brother
Allah swt knows the best
Kevin, you are the one relating the events on 911 to the Islamic religion, by suggesting to build a mosque before an investigation has taken place, before anything has been cleared.
You can not deny that this will provoke many innocent people.
You will not prove anything nor help the Muslims, but create ground for turmoil.
That is why I am wondering who you really work for?
I agree with Jerry Mazza, CRF and zionists designed thiss campaign of hate because , 74 % of american do not believe anymore the administration lies about 911 and the war on Islaam… Panic in Tel Aviv generates islamophobia in the west, this is it !
Aims of this hate campaign, target Muslims and no more 'al qaeda' , 'extremism'… 'violent' no it 's Islaam, the deen they claim to be responsible for 911 attacks, second point they want divide muslim community between those who will follow zionist behind Rauf and people like me and you speaking out against this fake war and false flag terrorism… so mind the gap Kevin, they are no more behind 'radical islam' or al Qaeda, today muslim equals terrorism… this is it !
Do you think Moore's on board with your plan to have 100 ft. tall statues of Netanyahu and Silverstein inside? I have to admit that I though that was a bit garish.
Michael Moore would endorse that because Michael Moore is David Rockefeller's puppet. Why do you think that everything that Michael Moore does earns him millions of dollars. It's because he is David Rockefeller's puppet.
Is the Koran really in opposition to building mosques????
"And there are those who put up a mosque by way of mischief and infidelity – to disunite the Believers – and in preparation for one who warred against Allah and His Apostle aforetime. They will indeed swear that their intention is nothing but good; But Allah doth declare that they are certainly liars." (9:107)
"Never stand thou forth therein. There is a mosque whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety; it is more worthy of the standing forth therein. In it are men who love to be purified; and Allah loveth those who make themselves pure." (9:108)
"Which then is best? – he that layeth his foundation on piety to Allah and His good pleasure? – or he that layeth his foundation on an undermined sand-cliff ready to crumble to pieces? and it doth crumble to pieces with him, into the fire of Hell. And Allah guideth not people that do wrong." (9:109)
"The foundation of THOSE WHO BUILD is never free from suspicion and shakiness in their hearts, until their hearts are cut to pieces. And Allah is All-Knowing, Wise." (9:110)
Houses as mosques, not buildings:
"We inspired Moses and his brother with this Message: Provide dwellings for your people in Egypt, make your dwellings into mosques."(10:87)
