9/11 Truther Group May Appear On November New York Ballot
What they really believe is that “Bush knew,” and they’ve been pushing this since 9/11. In other words, it’s not some foreign terror group that was behind this, it was the United States government.
Some people need a hobby. However, they have a real chance of getting an the New York ballot this year using the anodyne name, “the High Rise Safety Initiative.”
Its stated mission: to “require the NYC Department of Buildings to investigate high-rise building collapses in NYC” that occurred on September 11, 2001 or after, excluding the World Trade Center Twin Towers.
OK! Safety is good, right?
But why? Exactly zero tall buildings have come tumbling down in the city since that fateful day — and that, it turns out, is exactly the point. Despite its broad-sounding name, the High-Rise Safety Initiative, which could appear on New York City ballots in November, is aimed squarely at one building: 7 World Trade Center, the lynchpin of every tin-hat’s zany 9/11 conspiracy theory.
Crain’s New York reports that the initiative, backed by a group called the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now, has raised $190,000 and collected 53,000 signatures on a petition, which it plans to present to City Council early next month. When the council ignores the proposal — and it will — the group can collect 30,000 more signatures and force its way onto the ballot. If New Yorkers vote the ballot initiative in, the city will have to comply and investigate 7WTC’s collapse.
