Nutty Democratic candidate a 9/11 truther

Some people just never know when to shut up. Almost three years ago, we learned that former Green Jobs Czar Van Jones was a “9/11 truther,” one of those nut cases who believes that the tragedy of 9/11 was of our own making. This revelation raised serious doubts about President Obama’s reliance on czars in his administration, and caused Jones to quickly resign his post.

You would think that after that incident, 9/11 truthers with political aspirations would keep their wacky beliefs to themselves — but you’d be be wrong. As reported by Adam Kredo in the Washington Free Beacon, a prominent Democrat from the “show me” state is doing just that. According to Kredo:

A Democratic Party caucus chairman vying to become Missouri’s next secretary of state is a 9/11 Truther who has associated with a radical Muslim cleric and trafficked in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

MD Rabbi Alam is an Obama campaign ally and Missouri-based Democratic activist who chairs the National Democratic Party Asian American Caucus (NDPAAC), a Democratic National Committee-sponsored organization that liaises with Asian minorities.

Alam, who was born in Bangladesh, served as a “satellite campaign manager” for then-candidate Barack Obama and the Democratic Party during the 2008 elections, and has since been invited to the White House.

Alam has speculated about Jewish involvement in the September 11th terrorist attacks and participated in an event with a Muslim cleric who has accused Israel of terrorism and alleged that the U.S. invented the HIV disease.
