You know, I’ve begun to expect nearly anything from the far Left these days. Take this recent gem from Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, for instance:
Referring to the two passenger jets flown into the World Trade Centre, Miss Cotillard said: “We see other towers of the same kind being hit by planes, are they burned? There was a tower, I believe it was in Spain, which burned for 24 hours. It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed.”
Miss Cotillard suggested that the towers, planned in the early 1960s, were an outdated “money sucker” which would have cost so much to modernise that it was easier to destroy them.
So let me get this straight; It was cheaper to…
– Fly two passenger liners into the Towers, (killing the passengers and a couple of thousand firefighters, policemen, and others trapped in the buildings); and
– Fly one into the Pentagon; and
– Fly one straight into the ground in Pennsylvania, (killing hundreds more); and
– Operate a costly rescue and recovery operation in Washington and New York; and
– Deal with all of the debris and reconstruction that followed; and
– Deal with the economic impact of this all, etc., etc., etc.
… than it was to rehab or demolish the Towers?? What exactly are they smoking in France?
Good news for her is that the 9/11 insanity makes this theory sound sane:
Turning to America’s space programme, she said: “Did a man really walk on the moon? I saw plenty of documentaries on it, and I really wondered. And in any case I don’t believe all they tell me, that’s for sure.”
Ohhhhhhh, so that’s why we call them “Moon” bats!
She may have some competition, though – feminazi Gloria Steinem waltzed right over the lines of decency bashing McCain recently:
“Suppose John McCain had been Joan McCain and Joan McCain had got captured, shot down and been a POW for eight years. [The media would ask], ‘What did you do wrong to get captured? What terrible things did you do while you were there as a captive for eight years?'” Steinem said, to laughter from the audience.
McCain was, in fact, a prisoner of war for around five-and-a-half years, during which time he was tortured repeatedly. Referring to his time in captivity, Steinem said with bewilderment, “I mean, hello? This is supposed to be a qualification to be president? I don’t think so..” ..
Take heart, though – Steinem reminds us that:
“I am so grateful that she [Clinton] hasn’t been trained to kill anybody. And she probably didn’t even play war games as a kid. It’s a great relief from Bush in his jump suit and from Kerry saluting.”
The scary thing is, there are people who actually admire these two.
And the award for battiest ‘Bat goes to…..
