If It Quacks Like A Duck . . .

9/11 activists spend a lot of time trying to figure out who is a government "disinformation agent" and who is not.

I would argue that it is a total waste of time.

If someone is being disruptive, or seems to pursuing one of the 5 goals of disinformation, then he or she is causing problems and should be avoided -- or at least not given a megaphone. It doesn't matter what the motivation is: whether ego, confusion, or a government paycheck.

Sure, some people might want to understand someone's motivations to know whether or not to give him or her a second chance. That's fine.

But if it quacks like a duck, its probably a duck. Its a waste of time to try to figure out why it quacks, or whether its a mandarin duck or a mallard. Just treat it like a duck.

This is part 3 of my 3-part introduction to disinformation for busy people. Part 1 is here, and part 2 is here.

IOW if they aren't good sheeple, get rid of them.

Just who the hell do you think you are, faux George, to say who can and who cannot have a megaphone? As far as I can tell, a good number of "leaders" in the "9/11 truth(sic) movement" are naught but would-be tyrants moving like parasites into an open wound in the body politic. They are every bit as insidious and dangerous as the perpetrators of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
