Eminent Skeptic Stalked By Conspiracy Cultists!

Here's the latest attack launched by noteworthy skeptic Michael Shermer against "9/11 Truthers."

Truthlings have a notorious habit of stalking those who remotely disagree with their paranoid-delusional fantasies.

Skeptic Mike Shermer is irate and clearly fed up with these noxious nutjobs seeking ego-gratification and self-publicity at his expense.

Bill Maher recently had to forcibly denounce and then physically evict the proselytizing 9/11 Kookers attempting to crash his TV program.

According to the Associated Press:

"after the instigators were ejected, Maher told his panelists -- MSNBC's Chris Matthews, Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson -- that they often linger outside his studio to share 9/11 conspiracy theories with him and try to get into the show."

Bill Clinton has been similarly dogged, accosted and forced to slap down the truthlings, after being pursued incessantly, heckled and harassed by these nutbars time and again.

Whilst all conspiracism is idiotic, the 9/11 truthlings are a particularly noxious mutation which has reached stratospheric levels of infantile self-indulgence, and brain death.

I've rarely heard Michael Shermer in such "raised tone" excoriating irrational zealots. He sounds pissed and refers to the 9/11 conspiracy freak show as a "Pack of Liars"

No sane person would disagree with our eminent skeptic and his poignant descriptor.

“Ever since Skeptic magazine published an investigative article on the 9/11 "Truth Movement" and analyzed their claims, which were found wanting, I have been hounded by the so-called 9/11 "truthers" ...”

A core modus operandi or tactical technique of conspiracy zealots is to use the pretence of “questioning” which is nothing more than a rhetorical rouse, permitting them to make dogmatic assertions as if incontrovertible.

Truthers frequently employ the identical shonky "sales pitch" gimmicks we often associate with used car salesman; sleazy political or religious hucksters.
