Yet another Truther gives the freedom movement some positive media attention

denniskucinichI’m taken to task in the comments every time I write about how Truthers and other conspiracy theorists harm the freedom movement.  Now that someone has just been arrested for posting threats on Twitter, let’s take a look at how the newspaper reported (emphasis added) the individual accused of the threat:

According to an FBI criminal complaint, Daniel Knight Hayden, who went by the name CitizenQuasar on a popular microblogging site, threatened murder on several occasions in the run-up to tax day.

On April 11 he posted a message on Twitter that said,”The WAR wWIL [sic] start on the stepes [sic] of the Oklahoma State Capitol. I will cast the first stone.”

That message was followed by others that said, “”START THE KILLING NOW” and  “After I am killed on the Capitol Steps, like a REAL man, the rest of you will REMEMBER ME!!!”  He also wrote “I really don’t give a (expletive) anymore. Send the cops around. I will cut their heads off the heads and throw the(m) on the State Capitol steps.”

He then wrote life wasn’t worth living in Oklahoma – without listing any reasons – feigned he has been drinking too much and posted the name and home phone number of a man he believed was a local tea party organizer, instructing his followers to “REMEMBER this name.”

The last Twitter message posted by Mr. Hayden on April 15 said, “Locked AND loaded for the Oklahoma State Capitol. Let’s see what happens.”

Special agent Michael S. Puskas wrote in his complaint that he tracked Mr. Hayden down through his computer’s IP address and his public MySpace profile.

Wired Magazine believes this is the first criminal prosecution to arise from postings on Twitter.

Liberal bloggers quickly pointed to Mr. Hayden to validate the Obama’s administation’s report about the rise of right-wing extremism. Mr. Hayden’s online posting are obviously anti-government, although his political persuasions do not appear to be linked to any party.

Several political videos are posted on Mr. Hayden’s MySpace account, including one known as a “truther” documentary, accusing President Bush of being responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

A video heavy blog by Mr. Hayden posted on April 6 suggests President Obama has hypnotized his supporters and a prominently featured quote in his profile from The Gulag Archipelago says, “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family?”

Now look at his MySpace page.  Of his incoherent video and written ramblings, I’m not sure of which I like best:

  • Male – 52 years old – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – United States
  • Alex Jones Interviewed by Russia Today: “U.S. is a puppet of private bankers .”
  • Hoagland on The Monuments of Mars
  • Republic Broadcasting Network: Because you CAN handle the truth
  • Prophesy reveal American pentagram

This one is self-explanatory:

Citizen Quasar ‘s Details
Status: Single

While I feel a bit sorry for the person in question, at this moment, he has 474 friends (including Dennis Kucinich, Dylan Avery and Alex Jones) on his MySpace page.  That’s truly scary.

Of course, the conspiracy theorists will all suggest that this was planned by Obama in preparation for the April 15th Tea Parties and that thermite was found behind the grassy knoll which was paid for by the Jews.  In truth, I’ve paid myself with Arizona desert moon rock sales.

Disclosure: I was paid by the CFR, Illuminati and the Bilderbergers to write this.  I’m currently en route to meet with the Jewish banking cartel so I can take over the world next week.  I also have 666 tattoos of the very-same pyramid one can find on the one dollar bill on both my forehead and one of my wrists. Timothy LaHaye is probably writing a new book about me right now. Don’t tell anyone, but we all plan to meet at Area 51 at midnight on Friday.  See you there.

    Associations between the liberty movement and truthers makes me cringe. It seems as if 75 percent or more of the truthers want the resolution to the conspiracies to come from government. Even the most dull-witted advocate of the liberty movement understands how unlikely it is that the government will rule against itself.

    Furthermore, if I can illustrate to people that government is immoral by talking about police abuse and the effect of the federal reserve on the value of our money, what the hell do I need with thermite, the melting point of steel or the motives of Jewish bankers.

    The buildings came down, 3000 people were killed, and the government used the tragedy as a pretext for increasing the scope of it’s own authority. They just don’t seem to get it that that is convincing in and of itself. They seem to need a false flag operation behind it to satisfy their minds.

  • Chrisfrmchi

    This was planned by Obama…and thanks once again for taking a single idiot moron and painting them as the entire truth movement.

  • Rick Caldwell


    Most (not all, but certainly most) of the visible truth movement sounds remarkably like this single idiot moron. And I don’t want the stench of it to transfer to me, or the liberty movement that I’m a part of.

    I apologize if you take offense, and even more profusely if you subscribe to a more sensible truther view.

  • Chrisfrmchi

    A lot of the BS is engineered by journalists themselves.

    Just replace this truther with libertarian kook and Stephen just did what the Mainstream media did to the Tea Party protesters.

    Shame on you Stephen.

    Its a journalistic formula. Might I add notice the last line in it.

    “Of course, the conspiracy theorists will all suggest that this was planned by Obama in preparation for the April 15th Tea Parties and that thermite was found behind the grassy knoll which was paid for by the Jews. In truth, I’ve paid myself with Arizona desert moon rock sales.”

    That is all made up JOKE BS by Stephen to paint anyone as crazy Jew hating JFK killing moon hoaxers…and his italicized disclosure…how dare you.

    No one is coming in here and we don’t write made up BS like you do about you.

    Can’t you see that rick? sigh.

    Oh that is right its in the Humor section so you can crap on anyone with immunity…

  • Chrisfrmchi

    Rick its just that articles like the one stephen wrote here and the one that he linked to from the washington time is the reason why you never learn about the sensible theory of 9/11.

    Note they never go into why norad failed to intercept.

    Note they never go into the molten metal and temperature maps seen on Nasa images of ground zero a month after.

    Note they never talk about why the steel from the WTC was sent to china before it could be properly investigated, or why the offical story from NIST seemed to have changed 2 times already since the 9/11 commission report.

    Note they never talk about how the BBC and CNN reported that WTC7 fell 20 minutes before it actually did and you could still see the building standing there in the background. You can’t wire a building to fall in 7 hours into its own footprint…btw FBI,CIA, SEC, FEMA and the NYC emergency response center were all tenants of WTC7.

    Additionally the government could jsut release the entire surveillance tapes to the Pentagon as well beyond the 5 frames they have release..and maybe 9/11 truth goes away…but they don’t. Why?

    ALL those crazy kook lies to sell DVDs?
    check them out please.

    But the Bush administration failed/lied about:

    Katrina Response
    Add in some other things I don’t even know.
    Bailouts & Bonuses

    But lets give them the benefit of the doubt on

    9/11 cause it was so horrible and that is the one thing we got ALL truth out of them about.

    You know there needs to be a New Investigation.
    The first one cost 7 million…Lewinsky 40 million.

    Nice use of ad hominems.

    Recall that a conspiracy is simply when two or more people take part in a plan which involves doing something improper to others (of which plan may or may not be kept secret, i.e., secrecy is not a necessary component for actions to be a conspiracy). The mere fact that governments set for themselves double-standards is alone quite enough to logically demonstrate that governments themselves consider their own actions improper (i.e., if their same actions which they do to others were to be done to them). Thus, the conclusion that government itself is the largest corporeal conspiracy to ever exist or that could ever exist is logically unavoidable.

    The most prolific promulgators of conspiracy theories are governments, with the U.S. government leading the pack. Since obviously more than one person was involved in planning the 9/11 attacks, then by definition the U.S. government’s mendacious, self-serving, anti-historical, anti-physical law, anti-factual and provably false official fairy tale is a conspiracy theory, as the U.S. government is putting forth a theory concerning the 9/11 attacks which involves a conspiracy.

    Furthermore, conspiracies are ubiquitous (witness all the laws on the books against conspiracy, and how many people are routinely charged under said laws), and the most egregious perpetrators of murderously brutal conspiracies are governments upon their own innocent citizens. More than six times the amount of noncombatants have been systematically murdered for purely ideological reasons by their own governments within the past century than were killed in that same time-span from wars. From 1900 to 1923, various Turkish regimes murdered from 3.5 million to over 4.3 million of its own Armenians, Greeks, Nestorians, and other Christians. The Soviet government murdered over 61 million of its own noncombatant subjects. The communist Chinese government murdered over 76 million of it own subjects. The National Socialist German government murdered some 16 million of it own subjects. And that’s only a sampling of governments mass-murdering their own noncombatant subjects within the past century. (The preceding figures are from Prof. Rudolph Joseph Rummel’s University of Hawaii website.)

    All totaled, neither the private-sector crime which government is largely responsible for promoting and causing or even the wars committed by governments upon the subjects of other governments come anywhere close to the crimes government is directly responsible for committing against its own citizens–certainly not in amount of numbers. Without a doubt, the most dangerous presence to ever exist throughout history has always been the people’s very own government. (This is also historically true for the U.S. govermment, as no group has killed more U.S. citizens than the U.S. government. Viz., the Civil War; etc.)

    Not only were all of these government mass-slaughters conspiracies–massive conspiracies, at that–but they were conspiracies of which the 9/11 attacks are quite piddling by comparison.

    Moreover, terrorism is the health of the state (indeed, government is itself a logical subset of terrorism, since it uses initiatory violence and the threat thereof in order to maintain its existence and achieve its political agenda; and the word terrorism originally referred exclusively to government actions: i.e., the Reign of Terror in France against critics of the state, which was done according to the law–and later on the word terrorism was used to refer to other governments), which is why so many governments throughout history have manufactured duplicitous terrorism in which to serve as a pretext in order to usurp ever more power and control.


    According to the Washington Times article “Man posted tea party death threats on Twitter” (Amanda Carpenter, April 26, 2009), Daniel Knight Hayden was making threats against members of the Tea Party protests. Hayden’s actions here are consistent with the desire to protect the U.S. government by threatening those who are attempting to reduce the U.S. government’s power and funding. As well, someone who believes in 9/11 Truth maintains that governments (such as the U.S. government) stage terrorism and violence as pretexts in order to obtain more power, funding, control and evisceration of the masses’ liberty; as well as being used to demonize their opponents. So someone who actually believes in 9/11 Truth would never conduct such violence unless their intent was to make the U.S. government stronger.

    It should be noted that governments and their connected allies have a well-documented history of using Black Propaganda in order to attempt to besmirch their opposition. Black Propaganda is a subset of the logical fallacy of poisoning the well. What follows are some recent examples.

    1.) On April 11, 2007 in front of the new World Trade Center Building 7 in the City of New York, one of Larry Silverstein’s security guards threatened to frame Luke Rudkowski (founder of We Are Change) on false terrorism charges of having a bomb in his (Mr. Rudkowski’s) backpack. Needless to say, such false terrorism frame-up threats are highly illegal and serious, yet the government hasn’t even attempted to prosecute the security guard who made said threats, despite it having been clearly recorded on video. For video of this incident, see “NYC 911 Truth Jam (MP4 – High Quality),” longisland911truth, YouTube, April 14, 2007.

    2.) The police used rock-and-bottle-wielding undercover-cop agents provocateurs dressed up as so-called “anarchists” during the August 20, 2007 Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) North American Leaders’ Summit in Montebello, Quebec, Canada, who were used in an attempt to smear the peaceful SPP protesters, and had they not been called out for their obvious state-agent provocateuring then it’s highly likely that they would have engaged in bloodshed (since obviously they weren’t wielding rocks and bottles while wearing masks in order to play Pat-a-Cake). For video of this incident, see “Stop SPP Protest – Union Leader stops provocateurs,” CanadiansNanaimo, YouTube, August 21, 2007.

    To crown all in this matter, after these agents provocateurs were outted, Quebec Provincial police officer Marcel Savard and Public Security Minister Stockwell Day amazingly attempted to spin this event to the government’s favor by perfidiously saying that their agents provocateurs were called out by the protesters because said agents were refusing to engage in violence! To be sure, the protesters who called out these treacherous thugs were perfectly peaceful and were clearly making the point at the time of the incident that they didn’t want the violence the government’s agents provocateurs were attempting to incite (as indeed the video evidence clearly shows). For that, see “Quebec police defend officers’ actions at summit,”, August 24 2007.

    3. Police officers were caught smashing businesses’ windows while posing as “anarchists” during the December 2008 Greek riots. For video of this, see “Cops are breaking shops in greek riots 2008,” arxilamas, YouTube, December 17, 2008.

    The police and military have been caught staging riots using their own agents provocateurs time and time again, such as with the World Trade Organization Ministerial Conference of 1999 in Seattle, the 27th G8 summit (Genoa, Italy, 2001), etc. This is an ancient tactic of statecraft, whereby the state stages violent acts so as to have a pretext to crack down on the rights of the masses and smear its opponents. Watch journalist Alex Jones’s Police State II: The Takeover (published 2000, and available for free at documentary where one can see how the police and military staged the 1999 WTO riots in Seattle from beginning to end.

    “…there can no longer be any serious argument about whether Saddam Hussein’s Iraq worked with Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda to plot against Americans.” —Stephen F. Hayes, The Weekly Standard, 2003

    When discussing politics, if there’s one thing that sends people running for the hills, it’s conspiracy theories — or worse, conspiracy theorists.

    As with those who are deemed “racist” or “isolationist,” conspiracy theorists are automatically dismissed by polite society, not necessarily because they are wrong, but because of the nature of their arguments. And because their ideas and opinions are outside of consensus politics or the mainstream media, conspiracy theorists lack credibility simply for being outside the realm of respectability.

    Take, for example, what is commonly known as the 9/11 Truth Movement, a collection of conspiracy theories that claim the terrorist attacks in 2001 were orchestrated by the U.S. government. Watching 9/11 Truth videos online like “Loose Change” or “Zeitgeist” raises many interesting questions, and might cause even the most reasonable of folks to at least question the conventional wisdom on the subject. Yet, by and large, the 9/11 Truth conspiracy remains a fringe movement, taken seriously by few and laughed at by most.

    But if 9/11 “Truthers” are wacky for believing the 9/11 attacks were orchestrated by Uncle Sam, what about the conspiracy theorists who tried to convince Americans that 9/11 was orchestrated by Saddam Hussein? Consider the following from The Weekly Standard’s cover story “Case Closed” written by Stephen F. Hayes in November of 2003: “Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein had an operational relationship from the early 1990s to 2003 that involved training in explosives and weapons of mass destruction, logistical support for terrorist attacks, al Qaeda training camps and safe haven in Iraq, and Iraqi financial support for al Qaeda — perhaps even for Mohamed Atta — according to a top secret U.S. government memorandum obtained by The Weekly Standard.”

    After the memo Hayes cited was immediately and entirely dismissed by the Department of Defense and virtually every intelligence official, Newsweek decided to investigate Hayes’ claim further, concluding “the memo doesn’t actually contain much ‘new’ intelligence at all. Instead, it mostly recycles shards of old, raw data that were first assembled last year by a tiny team of floating Pentagon analysts whom [Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas J.] Feith asked to find evidence of an Iraqi-Al Qaeda ‘connection’ in order to better justify a U.S. invasion.”

    Hayes went on to write a book called The Connection based on the same false memo, and as the Bush administration went on to make the same case that Iraq had something to do with 9/11, Vice President Dick Cheney told the Rocky Mountain News that Hayes’ Weekly Standard article was the “best source of information” on collaboration between Hussein and Al Qaeda.

    Of course, this was all fantasy. It was a conspiracy — not between Saddam and Osama — but amongst the Bush White House and their media allies to construct a “connection” between Hussein and Al-Qaeda that had never existed, an irrefutable fact reflected by every piece of U.S. intelligence before the invasion of Iraq — and proven again after it. Yet today, you will still find the random conspiracy kook who still believes that Saddam was behind 9/11.

    So what is the difference between conspiracy theorists who believe the U.S. government orchestrated 9/11 and those who believe Saddam Hussein did? For starters, the 9/11 Truth conspiracists have arguably more circumstantial evidence for their case than men like Hayes or Cheney ever did for theirs. But the most significant difference is that while 9/11 Truthers are relegated to the internet with no mainstream media support, 9/11 Saddam Hussein conspiracists like Hayes were the media and worked in conjunction with the government to perpetrate their fraud.

    While I try to keep an open mind, I do not believe the U.S. government orchestrated 9/11 precisely because I don’t believe our government is competent enough to pull off such an elaborate scheme, and if they did, it would certainly be too incompetent to cover it up.

    But 9/11 Truthers and similar groups don’t concern me half as much as the conspiracy theorists in our media and government, who have the power to start wars, end lives, and damage nations, based on their own self-aggrandizing-fantasies.

    And if I had to choose, there’s something much more healthy and patriotic about those who take their distrust of government to what some might consider a ridiculous degree, than those whose unquestioning trust in government is not only unhealthy — but completely ridiculous.
