Canadian Green Party Candidate Refers to 9/11 as "Beautiful"

Quote:
A federal Green party candidate in Vancouver-Kingsway is standing behind a controversial editorial he wrote more than four years ago in which he describes the falling of the World Trade Center twin towers as "beautiful."

The editorial, entitled, A Revolting Confession, was first published on Nov. 28, 2002 in an alternative newspaper, The Republic of East Vancouver, which Kevin Potvin founded.

"When I saw the first tower cascade down into that enormous plume of dust and paper, there was a little voice inside me that said, 'Yeah!' When the second tower came down the same way, that little voice said, 'Beautiful!' When the visage of the Pentagon appeared on the TV with a gaping and smoking hole in its side, that little voice had nearly taken me over, and I felt an urge to pump my fist in the air," Mr. Potvin wrote in the editorial.

The 44-year-old bookstore owner, who ran for municipal office in Vancouver in 2005, said he at first withheld the editorial, publishing it only after he was approached by others who felt the same way.

"This is a revolting confession," he wrote. "But it's what happened."

He continued: "I know lots of people were killed. But then again, I see lots of people getting killed whenever I turn the TV news on, and frankly, it doesn't really get to me any more....

"Let's face facts. If the news on the morning of September 11 was that 3,000 Tanzanians or Burmese had been killed, they wouldn't have broken in on regularly scheduled programming, or cancelled football games, and there'd be no conversation about it the next day."

Mr. Potvin said in a telephone interview last night that he is now skeptical that the events of 9/11 were entirely the work of terrorists.

"I have no idea what happened on that day, but it's certainly not the story that Washington propagates."

Mr. Potvin, who was recently acclaimed as a Green party candidate, is today meeting with voters to discuss "9/11 truth and its implications for Canadian foreign policy" at a downtown Vancouver cafe.

The Green party could not be reached for comment last night.
Green candidate stands by remarks praising 9/11

Wow, uh...I don't know. That sounds a little ****ed up to me. I am confident that the govn't had a part in the attacks, but by no means would I say it was "beautiful" and then stick by my statements 4 years later. This guy is an asshole. The Green Party in both Canada and America have got some serious issues they need to work out. Over here we got Al Gore preaching about something that doesn't exist (or at least, not proven to exist) and getting praised for it, and up there you got a guy who pumps his fist into the air when he sees 3,000 innocent people die. What the **** is wrong with people?

Wow I wonder what Mr. Bungle and daman5 would say about their almighty Canadians if they saw this.

WL2FU, why did the govt. have to be involved in 911. I know there had to have been bombs planted but my theory is they were put there by someone who was working at the WTC who was a terrorist not a govt agent.

i was born in almighty canada and i still think that dude potvin is f***ed in the head. nothing that results in the deaths of 3,000 people is beautiful in any way shape or form

no way would that krap run in the vancouver paper? where was it printed again? oh never mind it was his own paper. he just has a death wish I guess, since he just turned himself into a walking target.

Well, you could be right. But there are many reasons why I think it was the govn't and not a private org.

OK, we obviously can see that Tower 7 at least was a controlled demolition and more than likely the Twin towers were also. But we pretty much know for a fact that Tower 7 was intentionally destroyed. If it was a terrorist, why would he put the bombs in the perfect controlled demolition places, so that when it collapsed it caused no damage to the surrounding buildings? Why would a terrorist care if he made a mess bombing a building?

Also, because the owner of Tower 7 and the Twin Towers, don't remember his name, only owns those 3 towers out of the entire World Trade Center. Someone else owns the rest of the buildings, but he owns just those 3. He also started up some kind of insurance policy for all 3 of them not too long before the attacks happened. He also admitted to telling his men to bring it down on PBS.

Don't forget the CNN and BBC reporters breaking the news a full hour before it fell. More than likely the govn't was involved in that little mess up, not a terrorist, IMO. What, is the terrorist also the director of the news program?

And there's many more reasons but this is the last one I feel like typing out:

Because the government is the one who set up the "drills" for that day. They set up drills that the city was going to practice what would happen if a terrorist attack happened. They actually had the drill set up precisely the way 9/11 played out. Same time, 2 planes hitting the 2 towers, and at the Pentagon and White House they were doing the same thing. Having a drill to practice what would happen if 2 planes hit the Pentagon and White House. This is why most people think the 4th plane that crashed in Pennsylvania was headed for the White House. Because these are all facts. This is all admitted by the government and it's in the 9/11 "official" report, and is used as an excuse as to why NORAD (America's air defense for terrorist attacks) was told to stand down. Because they told them it was just a drill. That's why planes were still crashing into shit even an hour after the initial attacks. There's an airbase 10 miles away from the Pentagon, which is specifically there for defending DC from terrorist attacks. But they never came to the rescue because they were told at first that it was just a drill.

And not to mention all the countless important political figures who were all told to not travel to New York the day of 9/11, and why basically everyone in Washington "had other things to do" that day. No one was doing what they were supposed to be normally doing on that day. They were all off in other states. Coincidence?

The problem I have with the news reporter reporting too sonn is that if the government was indeed involved then very few people would know about it. They would have to be on a strictly need to know basis and this would be probably one of the most top secret things theyve ever done. I dont see any reason they would inform reporters ahead of time that wouldnt make sense. They could just let the repoters report the story as it played out.

It's just the fact that they were CNN and BBC reporters. Ever heard of the government/media complex?? Those are the 2 biggest news stations in the world. They DO have connections to the govn't. Probably the reason why they reported it early, is because someone from ground zero who works for the station and does field reporting probably phoned into the station because he/she HEARD that the building was going to be brought down, but maybe misunderstood and thought it was gonna be brought down earlier than it was. But the fact is they knew it was going to fall before it did, and the owner of the building is on camera admitting that he told the crew to bring it down. Everyone, all the civilians and everyone who was around the trade center, were all evacuated an hour before Tower 7 collapsed and were told not to come back because it was going to collapse.

OK, so no steel framed structure in the history of the world has ever ever ever collapsed due to fire, and in fact the buildings just 20 feet away from the Twin Towers had little to no damage whatsoever, except one hotel which remained burning the entire day and never collapsed. So how did all the law enforcement in that area know that Tower 7 was going to collapse, when it's never happened before, and the hotel remained burning the entire day without anyone being evacuated from the area. Just the fact that the law enforcement is the ones telling people to get the hell out of the way an hour before it fell, tells me they knew about it falling beforehand. And who does law enforcement get their orders from? They don't need to know it's a coverup. They just do what they're told. Plus I don't need to say it again but it's the most important piece of evidence and that is the owner of the buildings admitting on camera on PBS that he told his crew to bring the building down.

The biggest reason I think the govn't was involved is the fact that they are clearly lying about a ton of shit in the official 9/11 report. If they weren't involved, then why do they leave out extremely important things and try to cover it up?
