The Real Story Behind the Deleted Flight 93 Memorial ThreadsPosted: September 23, 2010
In light of some unsatisfied curiosities that emerged during my recent series of memory hole threads, I followed a hunch I had, and found the “official” explanation (note the timestamp):
Well, we’ve established that there were actually at least six, but 3,4…6…who’s counting? Oh yea, full disclosure. (the “discussion” CJ is referring to was the one about being caught scrubbing “Islamic Supremacist” )
But this is interesting: Suddenly mentioning that he realized that they were loons years ago, and just noticing they were showing up in the referral logs recently. This “resurrection” hypothesis, in other words. I’m still willing to give CJ the benefit of the doubt at this point, so let’s see if that’s plausible….
Now, it’s certainly likely that there are links to those old posts around on various pages and blogs that are part of this. CJ didn’t point to anything specifically, but let’s assume that they are out there and get clicked on every once and awhile. In reality, this online movement (that he helped create) has slowly grown to dozens and dozens of sites that have networked together and that sync posts and send out trackbacks to spread the word and recruit more sites. So it could be that there are more links out there than there used to be. But are we to believe that he didn’t notice anything in his referral logs until their 71st blogburst?
We’re missing something here.
Is there any anecdotal evidence out there? An alternate explanation? Luckily, we have “Guy” in our comments:
it’s super simple. i discovered that they were deleted pretty much the day post-2008 cult-member, avanti posted a “pages” blog of her findings that “these wingnuts have this insane islamophobic conspiracy theory about the flight 93 memorial.” she appeared to have encountered this on some free petition site. but, obviously, if you do a google search of lgf, all of the posts listed above pop up. charles didn’t want lizards finding that stuff when searching for her post, so down the memory hole it went.
A snip (again the timestamp):
The benefit/doubt meter swings the other way, I’m afraid.
It went like this, more likely:
