Still coming to terms with the fact that a scary number of Americans believe Trump's big lie.

I believed in a big lie once. When I was in college, I believed that 9/11 was an inside job.

It started when, after a long hiking/camping trip, all the people in my group where saying that it was an inside job and I was the crazy one to not believe. How could the world's biggest air force fail to take down not two but three air planes?

I started reading about it on the internet and what really sealed the deal for me was the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

They're looking at the numbers and numbers don't lie. Right?
I became a little obsessed with it and I believed it so much that I wanted to edit a wikipedia page about 9/11 to include some of this stuff. But the wikipedia editors rejected my edits and said I needed more sources.

So I started looking for real sources and that is when I noticed that all of AE911Truth's "proof" was authored from only one or two guys and didn't actually include any hard evidence.

After writing the wikipedia article (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NIST_Worl…) I was no longer a believer.

It took days of unguided research to get the sources I needed and by the time I was done, it was obvious to me that the 9/11 theory was just a big lie.

My point is:

99% of the people who believe Trump are not going to do this kind of fact checking. If all the people around them believe it too, like it was for me and the 9/11 conspiracy, that will be good enough for them.

It's going to take years to undo this damage.

Finally, one last point:

If Nazis are on your side, if you're taking up arms with a guy in a Camp Auschwitz hoodie, then you're on the wrong side.

actually I got ONE LAST point: This was a difficult story for me to share because it is humiliating. The towers fell because of Saudi terrorists and to say otherwise is an injustice not only to those lost at the WTC but to the many thousands of lives destroyed in the ensuing wars
Which is why I shared it here because nobody will see it
