An Open (Angry) Letter to United for Peace & Justice, A.N.S.W.E.R, et al,

To whom it may concern:

I writing to tell you that I will not be attending any more of your
protest actions, and although that fact is admittedly insignificant, the
reason behind it certainly isn’t, because the reason is shared by hundreds
of political activists, and millions of political dissenters.

Much in the way that the mainstream media has become marginalized as a
source of information, your organizations have become marginalized in the
arena of political protest, and much for the same reasons.

You’re sticking to old routines in a world that’s changed, and you refuse
to honestly address the real problems we face today. Our government has
promised us a war we won’t live to see the end of, and your organization
seems to be convinced that marching in circles behind humiliating metal
fences is going to change that. What your organization achieves actually
helps the opposition, because it convinces the public that protests are
futile, and dissenters only get beaten and arrested without ever changing
anything.

Your willingness to oppose our criminal government is obviously restrained
by your fear, or your money, or both, but whatever the case may be, your
opposition is worse than ineffective, because it wastes the time and
effort of activists and dissenters who work and assemble with the hope of
improving our world. Although you claim to be fighting to stop war, your
organization refuses to address the issues of 9-11, which happens to be
what’s making endless war possible.

Because of 9-11, most Americans will not vehemently oppose any war that
can be even remotely (or racially) attributed to “fighting terrorism.”
Because of 9-11, Americans are being taught to accept a violent and racist
world-view that justifies the slaughter of millions for empirical
expansion. Because of 9-11, our constitution has been trampled by the same
criminals who murdered 3000 people here on that day. Since your
organization refuses to address the events of 9-11, what the hell is it
that you do?

If you’re “united for peace and justice,” shouldn’t you be looking at the
cause of our wars, and seeking justice for the murdered masses? If you
want to “stop war and end racism,” wouldn’t it make sense to unearth its
roots?

The 9-11 Truth Movement can no longer be considered a collection of
“conspiracy theorists” on the fringes of society. We’ve worked for years
to expose the truth, and now millions of Americans are aware of our
government’s complicity in the attacks of 9-11. These same millions view
your organization as silly and useless because you insist on marching in
circles holding signs that say “stop the war in Iraq,” while the pentagon
plans many wars to follow. The anti-war movement is being ignored, and it
deserves to be, because as long as its leaders insist on ignoring the most
important issue of our time, it’s worse than useless.

Please accept the painful reality of our situation. Both political parties
ignore the will of the people, endorse fraudulent elections, and support
endless war. All three branches of our government are under firm control
of the white house, and our freedom is all but gone. Our military
practices rounding up civilians, while our federal government builds more
prison camps. The United States is rapidly becoming a fascist
dictatorship, and there’s no time to waste on your useless agenda.

Much like the Democratic party, who provided a peace loving people with a
war mongering candidate, you’ve lost touch with the people who supported
you, and you’ve ignored their concerns. In your attempt to sell yourself
like a box of soap, you appealed to the masses, and disgusted the
grassroots activists.

Our government no longer represents the people of the United States, and
neither do you. Either take up the cause of 9-11 truth, or get your silly
organization out of the way. This country needs change that will never be
achieved by a gang that is too afraid to accept the
horrifying realities of today’s world.

You help to perpetuate our government’s lie by lending it credence, and in
doing so, you help to make more war possible. When will you recognize what
much of America already knows? If you oppose war, expose the lies of 9-11.
The main reason I’m opposed to the war, is because I know the truth. If I
thought “Islamic terrorists” were solely responsible for 9-11, I might be
shooting at them, too.
