Michelle Malkin's Neo-Con Blog Fears Bruce Willis Now 9/11 Truther

Following our exclusive yesterday about A Scanner Darkly director Richard Linklater's efforts to spread 9/11 truth within the film making community, including formerly 'die-hard' Neo-Con Bruce Willis, a Bushist blog has voiced its fears that Willis has left the fold of the government apologist crowd.
Hot Air is a popular video blog, founded by Neo-Con poster child Michelle Malkin, created to challenge the supposed liberal domination of the Internet streaming video market.

Calling Willis' apparent re-think on his political stance, "Like Schwarzenegger converting to Islam," Hot Air  http://hotair.com/archives/the-blog/2006/07/11/bruce-willis-911-truther/ quotes from our story  http://hotair.com/archives/the-blog/2006/07/11/bruce-willis-911-truther/ quotes from our story  link to www.prisonplanet.com

Linklater said he had handed out DVD's on set which carried claims that 9/11 was perpetrated by the US government to erect a police state to Bruce Willis, one of the stars of Linklater's upcoming Fast Food Nation  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0460792/

"He said it put him in such a head space that he will be quiet on issues of national policy."

Linklater said Willis had told him in an e mail that the videos had changed his entire political paradigm.

Complaining that Willis is now, "believing the plots of his own movies," Hot Air calls the development, "truly, truly distressing."

Noting that Willis is producing a "pro-war film in which American soldiers will be depicted as brave fighters for freedom and democracy," according to the Times  http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2089-1892675,00.html Hot Air laments that Willis "could have his brain turn(ed) so easily to oatmeal."

The Blog says that it contacted Michael Yon, on whose book Willis' film is based, to gage exactly what Willis' opinion of the Alex Jones DVD's he received from Linklater is.

When GOP Hollywood Heavyweights like Willis start figuring it out, Bush has REALLY got a problem. This guys entertains in Baghdad on his own dime. It's starting to get interesting.
