Why is Portland 9/11 Truth Alliance hosting a self-described 'white-separatist racialist'?

According to Portland IndyMedia's calendar, on June 10, 2009 at Laughing Horse Books, the Portland 9/11 Truth Alliance will be hosting Valdas Anelauskus of Eugene to give a lecture here in Portland on "Cultural Marxism."

This is most interesting, given that Mr. Anelauskus is a self-described "white separatist and racialist." (See

What does hosting someone like this have to do with promoting the facts about the events of 9/11/2001 to the general public?? I mean, even if the guy is vehemently against the official conspiracy theory of 19 Muslims with boxcutters overwhelming all security systems of the U.S. on 9/11/2001, why invite someone like a Mr. Anelauskus to say it? Will leaders of neo-Nazi groups like Stormfront and National Vanguard be next for future lectures, as long as they, too, are against the official 9/11 conspiracy theory?

Portland 9/11 Truth Alliance has offered a very odd mix over the years: some authentic 9/11 truth representatives (e.g., David Ray Griffin, William Rodriguez), and some rather dubious ones (e.g., Judy "space beams demolished the WTC!" Wood, Morgan "the 9/11 planes were holograms/video fakes!" Reynolds, Leuren ("beware international Jewry!") Moret. For every one from the first category hosted by the Portland 9/11 Truth Alliance, we seem to get at least one from the second.

Is this being done deliberately to associate in the public's mind "9/11 truth" with racism and bizarre theories widely discredited within most of the 9/11-truth movement? This upcoming lecture by Mr. Anelauskus would seem to indicate this. If so, it is only too similar to the relentless postings of 'retired' U.S. Army counter-intelligence officer Captain Eric H. May and his deliberate mixing together of 9/11 truth issues with racist/anti-Jewish propaganda over the past couple years. See

Regardless, those wanting to learn about 9/11 truth might want to thoroughly research the speakers who are hosted by the Portland 9/11 Truth Alliance before deciding whether to attend any lecture by them.
