Democratic Underground in Spoof (Surely)

bush 911.jpgYou know that President Bush blew up the Twin Towers on 9-11 just like he bombed the levees in New Orleans. Well, here's a classic making the rounds about someone from the Democratic Underground "proving" that the planes that crashed into the buildings could not have brought them down. Implied Conclusion: Bush bombed the buildings. Check it yourself. You have to see the pictures.


Can a jet fuel/hydrocarbon fire collapse a steel structure? An experiment.

"1. I set up the following experiment using steel rabbit fencing as the steel structure supporting a heavy cement block.
2. Then I damaged the "columns" by cutting them with wire cutters:
3. Just inside where the gash was made in the outer wall, I placed a cup of kerosene (jet fuel), and there was newspaper around the bottom on the structure.
4. Then I put a heavy cement block on top, weighing about 15 pounds. I don't think the wire structure would hold more than three of these blocks, so the "safety factor" was not particularly high.
5. Then I tipped over the cup and lit the kerosene:
6. Then fire burned for about twenty minutes, and toward the end, I put my foot on the structure to see if it would extra weight. It still did:
7. The structure held up fine after the fire died:
8. After the fire was hot, the "columns" were not hot at all:

"What I conclude is that a fairly flimsy steel structure does not distort and bend and collapse very easily from a simple hydrocarbon fire. And thus, it is not clear why the much stronger steel columns in the WTC towers weakened so much from fires that the towers underwent global collapse."

My own conclusion? I cannot believe this is a real experiment. I have to think that The Onion is pulling a fast one on us or that the Democratic Underground did this as a spoof to make conservative bloggers look gullible for anything bad about the left. This is just too nuts to be real.

No sir, they couldn't fool me. Even I don't think that the Democratic Underground is that DUmb.

You're probably right, Woody.
There is an exceptionally dumb leftist psychologist (Deb Frisch) that has threatened Jeff Goldteins little boy, over at Protein Wisdom.
She has also defended Ward Churchill, and cyber-stalked other bloggers, like Professor Bainbridge, and others.
She teaches at Arizona State, and used to work for the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Her blog features conspiracy theories about Pres. Bush, including the infamous Bush caused 9/11 conspiracy.
She also calls the military "dupes", and shows an amazing compacity for malignant narcissism, paranoia, and delusional thinking.
Lately, she sounds like a sociopathic pedophile.
Froth at the mouth leftists are ceasing to surprise me.

Doesn't the experimenter realize that this would not take an honorable mention at a sixth-grade science fair?

You would be wrong. The crazy lefties would really take a failed kindergarden show and tell experiment and try to pass it off as fact. Proof of this is the fact they did it. LMAO
