Last Man Out!
November 13, 2007 6:13 PM   Subscribe

William Rodriguez gave a captivating presentation in Seattle on 11/07/07. William is believed to be the "Last Man Out" of the north tower of the World Trade Center alive, but not before reentering three times with the master key after the first plane impacted the north tower to help rescue a countless number of people. Here is an interview with William after the presentation. His Ricky Ricardo impersonation at the end is pretty good.

Heard this guy on WBAI. It's pretty obvious there were bombs planted in the towers. And this guy has no axe to grind. No political agenda.

Just another piece of the puzzle of what truly was a false flag operation.

Didn't Giuliani personally rescue everyone who survived the WTC attacks?

It's pretty obvious that this guy is crazy, but the FPP doesn't give any indication of this. The Wikipedia article gives a good run-down of the guy's nuttiness.

A pet peeve of mine is people who've been personally involved in a disaster in some way, and try to turn their involvement in these events into a career.

Why not be dignified and return to civilian life, rather than trying to make a career out of the disaster?

There's something so vile about people milking a disaster for professional advancement and prestige.

What is he talking about when he says the government can arrest you for what you think? Where he says he can be prosecuted for speaking out?

As far as hearing explosions, etc, people can get confused about what's going on. They might hear a loud boom and think that it was an explosion, etc.

(Oh, and of course, there would be falling balls of jet fuel to contend with, falling not debris landing and making loud noises people might think were bombs)

911 Myths, scroll down to Nov 7 and read how this mans story has changed regarding bombs in the basement.

Subtract the disaster and it's just people being people. Why expect anything less/more?

Are wfc123 and p&c serious?

Just imagine what wonderful fiction you could write if you teamed up with the folks from the Creation Museum.

Could we have a new conspiracy? This one is getting old.

Does that go for every Holocaust survivor (for example) who ever wrote a book or got paid to speak at a lecture? William was living homeless under a bridge until recently and was denied funds meant for 911 victims. His testimony was left out of the 911 Commission's report.

Ah, now I remember wfc123.

LOL WACKY CONSPIRACY THEORY!
I CAN HAZ STUBBORNLY-HELD OPINION OF REALITY IN FACE OF OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE TO CONTRARY?!? KTHXBI!

wfc must be an acronym for "Wholly Fucking Crazy."

I only have one thing to say about this:

Stop using "impact" as a verb, goddammit.

No, but if a Holocaust survivor put together a website with a flashy "Last Man Out of Auschwitz" banner and links to various Alex Jones-type conspiracies, with a rock-band-like list of upcoming gigs ... yes, I would accuse that Holocaust survivor of unseemly profiteering and careerism.

Just to be clear, I thought wfc123 was being sarcastic but who can tell. I found the gif I posted on 4chan and figured this was good enough place to use it. I'm annoyed by these truther lunatics and flagged this post because it's crap. So no, WetherMan, I wasn't serious.

dhammond, I am pretty sure wfc123's comment was tongue in cheek.

Now, if you're looking for a real "truther," our own Augustweed seems to fit the bill. Clicking on his personal website link takes you to a bunch of truther-type videos.

Feel free to use that gif though, Augustweed. I'm sure you'll get more use out of it than I would.

You know what pisses me off? People who need a conspiracy theory to get mad at our current government. How much evidence of incompetence and malfeasance do you need? Why do you have to to out on a limb or make shit up? Just read the news! Here's my laundry list: Why am I so angry? Why am I wasting my time on this thread? Don't answer that.

That's a very impactful statement.

What's your problem with verbing words?

I agree. I was about to remark about how impactly he conveyed that.

the impactishness of this thread is scary.

Earliest cite the OED has for "impact" as a verb is from 1605. "To have a (pronounced) effect on" sense dates to 1935. Good luck with your crusade.

Rangeboy: tilting at windmills, the OED since 1980.
