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

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.

There appears to be a strategy at work lately... 13.Jun.2009 14:52

I've noticed that 9/11 Truth is being deliberately classified along with Anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial by the many trolls and other debunkers on the internet these days. Everywhere I turn I see the same trolls attacking anyone who so much as criticizes Israeli treatment of Palestinians or mentions the many issues of Israeli espionage against the U.S., criticizes U.S. support for Israel's violence, etc. That there were Israelis arrested directly following 9/11 for suspicious activities is something the 9/11 Truth has been on notice about even muttering under their breath. Not two months ago I read on Indy media of the Pope classifying 9/11 Truth advocates as heretics, exactly as Holocaust deniers. This must be dealt with aggressively and carefully.

9/11 Truth must be very careful not to allow itself to be hijacked by provocateurs and saboteurs, especially from the racist 'right'. Flee that shit.
