Everyone has to know that Michael Moore is behind something like this: (h/t Medienkritik)
On the evening of June 5th 2005 the state-funded network ARD broadcast a 90-minute episode of Tatort. The word means ??scene of the crime?? and it is a long-running murder mystery series watched by millions. The episode (“Scheherazade“) concerned a woman who claimed that a man was murdered in her apartment. Not just any man, however. He was one of the pilots on September 11,2001. According to the story, he failed to board the plane he was supposed to hijack in Boston and he returned to Germany instead. The mystery revolved around the fact that in spite of the woman??s murder claim, the police could not find a corpse and the two detectives on the case spent most of the show trying to determine whether the woman’?s story was believable.
Throughout the mystery the woman was chased by groups of unidentified villains who were out to kill her because she had a CD with photographic evidence of the Boston hijacker who got away. The subtext of the plot was her explicitly stated allegation that 9-11 was instigated by the Bush family for oil and power.The hit men were CIA/FBI types and the TV audience is led to believe they were the ones who killed the pilot and were now after the woman to insure her story would never be known. The conclusion of the mystery has the detectives believing her story as she escapes the CIA by fleeing to an unnamed Arab country
I can see it now….behind the scenes of the show that fat lump of crap is rubbing his hands together now all the while snickering like Dr. Evil. Muhahahaha, I’ll get you now Bushitler…
Seriously tho, I am not surprised much about this. We all know the left’s utter love of conspiracy theories…I mean they have conspiracies about other conspiracies. They just love them….guess that’s why they remind me of the many schizophrenic’s I have met, and I have dealt with many of them during my years in patrol.
Bill over at Dawson’s Danube actually watched the show last night and made a few comments:
I must now explain to American (and other non-German) readers that Tatort is a rolling series that features specific detectives from multiple German cities (last night’s delight was in Bremen). This means that we viewers come to know the detectives, sympathize with them, like them, etc. So the fact that the young lady won over these two detectives has to be understood in the context of the German viewing public’s enjoyment of and trust in these detectives. This “winning over” occurs relatively early in the episode, meaning that all three of them are “sympathetic characters” together throughout the bulk of the plot.
In order to drive the point home, the writers included a love interest for the older, female detective. An old flame of hers is suddenly in town and the two sleep together. Of course this is no coincidence. It turns out that this old flame works for an international security contractor with clients including — the horror!!! — the U.S. Department of Defense and … the dreaded CARLYLE GROUP!
I waited it out until the end, thinking that maybe — just maybe — a final twist would show that all of the 9/11 nonsense was just that: nonsense. This twist did not materialize. Instead, the cheesy ending shows the young lady in an Arab country — she got away from the CIA (or whomever).
Simply put: German public broadcasting, which is supported by a mandatory fee that all televison owners must pay, celebrated the 600th episode of one of their most successful programs by broadcasting a story that fully and unambiguously supported 9/11 conspiracy theories that place the President of the United States and those around him at the center of a plot to purposely bring about “their” Middle East war.
One more comment: three words — sickening, pathetic and Dhimmitude — came to my mind whenever the show pondered Marwan and his martyrdom for truth. This is because the show’s producers always included beautiful and melancholy Arab music during these moments. Message: Arabia/Islam good, innocent, peaceful, soft, misunderstood, unfortunate; America powerful, wicked, murderous, deceitful, evil.
As bill noted, next week they will have an episode claiming holocaustcost never happened. Maybe the week after that they can claim the moon landing never happened…maybe even put in a few lines about the satanic symbols on the US Dollar. Like I said, most of these people need to be on meds.
