Comedic legend George Carlin was never one to shy away from controversy, always speaking a raw truth that went straight for the jugular of the modern power structure as a simple system of control.
So, it should come as no surprise that when it came to the government’s official account of the events of 9/11, Carlin, when questioned at a book-signing event in October of 2007 regarding his thoughts on the 9/11 truth movement said:
“I always question the received reality, the consensus reality is often intentionally misleading.”
When the interviewer then naively asked him if he supported a new investigation of 9/11, the politically savvy Carlin explained that the government would never hold itself truly accountable – likening it to the “Kennedy thing.”
“They don’t investigate themselves in this country. It would be like the Kennedy thing, like everything. The people in charge do what they want, and they will always do what they want. The power does what it wants to and I wouldn’t trust an investigation,” Carlin said.
