From what I understand, their style of humor is insulting and only propagates a kill-or-be-killed (or in this case, an insult-or-be-insulted) type
Penn (or is it Teller? Which one talks anyway?) from the video:
Being skeptical is good, but looking at this (this being the attack on the WTC towers) and having your first thoughts be 'this is a hoax staged by
the government,' well, that takes a special kind of as*hole.
We should be skeptical of the government, but we shouldn't just make sh*t up.
We hate showing this 9/11 footage - we should never have to see this again - but it is important to nip this bullsh*t paranoid fantasy before it takes
root in the national conscience(sic) and Oliver Stone makes a sh*tty movie about it.
And yes, he does indeed say conscience and not conscious!
...Perhaps a froydian slip?
He later goes on to suggest that if you see anyone with a copy of a 9/11 conspiracy book, to quite literally "push them down the stairs!"
Hmmm... Penn seems like quite the attack dog!
Who needs evidence to prove a point when you can just blast the opposition by way of petty name-calling and smearing individuals with titles of
If one has no leg (evidence) to stand on, one goes for the throat (hostility).
This is a prime example of attempting to get people to 'feel guilty' about questioning authority, to perhaps even instill the belief that one will
not be accepted by one's peers if one believes that 9/11 was an inside job.
If one truly wants to prove a point, this is most certainly not the rational (let alone kindly) way to do so. All the people I associate with believe
that 9/11 was an inside job, and NONE OF THEM condemn believers of the official story by calling them A-holes, sheep, idiots, or saying that we should
push them down the stairs...
Insults and smearing cause division - in the self, in relationships, and in society at large. These kind of 'documentaries' are laughable only
because they provide no evidence and address none of the logical points that are brought forth by honest observation and questioning.
I pray for your enlightenment Penn & Teller.
May you see firsthand that everything you sow is exactly what you reap.
And I leave you with a grand quote that would do us all well if we contemplate on it:
"They must find it difficult... Those who have taken authority as truth, rather than the truth as the authority."
