Jesse Ventura banned from Huffington Post for conspiracy mongering
A post by Jesse Ventura has been removed from the Huffington Post for violating a policy against spreading conspiracy theories.
Considering that the post identifies Ventura as the author of a book called American Conspiracies, you'd think HuffPo would have known what to expect from the former Minnesota governor.
Editor's Note: The Huffington Post's editorial policy, laid out in our blogger guidelines, prohibits the promotion and promulgation of conspiracy theories -- including those about 9/11. As such, we have removed this post.
What did Ventura say that was so controversial that it warranted being banned from a site that celebrates the "nip slip"? Nothing he hasn't said before, both here and elsewhere.
WHAT REALLY HAPPENED ON SEPTEMBER 11TH?
You didn't see anything about it in the mainstream media, but two weeks ago at a conference in San Francisco, more than one thousand architects and engineers signed a petition demanding that Congress begin a new investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11.
That's right, these people put their reputations in potential jeopardy - because they don't buy the government's version of events. They want to know how 200,000 tons of steel disintegrated and fell to the ground in 11 seconds. They question whether the hijacked planes were responsible - or whether it could have been a controlled demolition from inside that brought down the Twin Towers and Building 7.
