E-Mail To Libby Davies

So disgusted was I at the fact that Libby Davies had the gall to read a September 11th conspiracy theory petition in the House of Commons, that I wrote to her office about it. The following is the letter I wrote, and you can view the original video of her presenting the petition here.

Ms. Davies should be ashamed of herself for wasting the time of the house by presenting a petition that alleges the 9/11 attacks were some sort of government conspiracy. The business of the house should not be wasted on the frivolous pipe-dreams of conspiracy theorists! To get up in the house and speak such disgusting lies demeans the memories of all the innocent people who perished on that day, including 24 Canadians, at the hands of determined Islamist terrorists who took advantage of the weaknesses of North American airport security to accomplish devastating results.

Regardless of Ms. Davies obligations to present petitions received in the house, she should have made a value judgement to simply say that the petition was a statement by 500 people that they believe the events of 9/11 happened differently than they actually did. Better yet, she should have courageously not presented the petition at all in memory of those who suffered and died that day. The house is not a pulpit for ludicrous conspiracy theories, and reading that petition simply emboldened those who do not have the good sense to believe the history they lived through.

There is a saying: "Conspiracy theories are history for the stupid." We now know of at least 500 Canadians who fit that bill.


She may be obliged to present these petitions, but I wonder what she would have done had she received a petition from 500 people alleging that the Holocaust never happened?

(And also, I eagerly await the replies of Stephen Eli Harris, this blog's pet 'troofer.' Will he show?)
