President Obama’s incessant Bush-blaming may be wearing thin with the electorate, but there’s at least one group out there still happy to believe the worst about our 43rd president and his government. Not surprisingly, they’re left-wing celebrities.
Hollywood, although not shy about promoting conspiracy theories in films, has eschewed the dark fantasy that 9/11 was an inside job. Until now.
A new film, “September Morn,” is being planned by Fleur de Lis Film Studios. The film questions whether the events of 9/11 were really caused by Islamic terrorists. The Guardian reports that the film’s advance notice states: “We the people demand that the government revisit and initiates [sic] a thorough and independent investigation to the tragic events of 911.”
The film features several well-known left-wing actors: Woody Harrelson, Martin Sheen, and Ed Asner have signed on to the project.
The implausible notion that the events of 9/11 were the result of an “inside job” caused by the American government is often circulated in celebrity circles. Sheen and Asner belong to a group of celebrities called Artists and Actors for 9/11 Truth, which argues that “a significant percentage of the world’s actors and artists actually reject the official account as a false myth.” Other celebrities who hold that 9/11 was an inside job include Willie Nelson, Rosie O’Donnell, and Charlie Sheen.
A few of them now have a microphone to spread their far-fetched theories to an audience of useful idiots like MSNBC’s Toure who actually believe them.
