Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell…9/11 Truth at the OC Progressive Summit

If there is one institutional consensus within the powers that be in Orange County, it is that 9/11 Truth is not welcome here! But for the second year, the OC Progressive Summit has accepted OC 9/11 Truth’s application for a table. So we’ll be spreading 9/11 Truth, as usual, one drop at a time:

* explain to those who ridicule and demonize 9/11 Truth that 9/11 Truth has some legitimacy;

* explain to those who suspect something is wrong with 9/11 that 9/11 is extremely wrong; * explain to those who know 9/11 is extremely wrong that it is very important;

* explain to those who know 9/11 is very important that it overwhelms all other political issues:

* explain to those who understand that 9/11 overwhelms all other political issues that going to the bottom of 9/11 will automatically bring to a resolution the progressive agenda:

** rights of undocumented immigrants

** human rights

** gay & lesbian rights

** reproductive rights

** religious tolerance

** environmental preservation

** single payer health care

** living wage

** peace

** people over corporations

** fair elections

** you name it

** by the way, have you noticed how 9/11 Truth solves the conservative agenda also?

Progressives often claim to be guided by observation, reason and love . Let’s be grateful to them for accepting us and let’s preach 9/11 Truth on their own turf and in their own terms! The Progressive Summit charges an entrance fee of $15 on the web, $20 at the entrance. See OC Progressive Summit for exact details.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-47), senior member of the Committee on Homeland Security and the House Armed Services Committee, today released the following statement remembering September 11, 2001.

“One decade ago, our nation experienced an unfathomable tragedy. We pause this weekend to remember the victims and families who suffered from the horrific events of September 11 and to honor the soldiers who have since lost their lives in defense of our freedom.

“By enhancing our counter-terrorism and intelligence efforts we have diminished the capabilities of those who seek to harm our country. The United States Armed Forces and our intelligence community remain committed to the relentless pursuit of those who seek to destroy the freedoms we hold dear. We will not back down and with vigilance and resolve, our undivided nation moves forward and embraces the future.”

Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez is proud to represent California’s 47th Congressional District, which includes the cities of Anaheim, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, and parts of Fullerton in Orange County. She serves as Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces and a senior member of the Committee on Homeland Security. Rep.
