9/11 Truther: The Fight for Peace, Justice and Accountability

Longtime 9/11 activist and 9/11 Truth News contributor Jon Gold has released his autobiographical book 9/11 Truther: The Fight for Peace, Justice and Accountability. “9/11 Truther is the story of an everyday American who saw that something was wrong with what we were told about 9/11, and tried to do something about it.” The book features a foreword by peace activist Cindy Sheehan and is currently available on Amazon.

Foreword by Cindy Sheehan

After years of profound involvement in the US antiwar movement, I can now sniff out partisan political frauds, and the author of this memoir, Jon Gold, is not one of them.

A partisan political fraud latches on to an issue or cause or cause celebré until that thing or person is not popular anymore, then he/she bails out at the first opportunity.

A person who really cares about humanity realizes that the cesspool of partisanship creates and/or fosters the problems for pure political gain. Jon Gold is one of these people.

When people were killed on 9/11, Jon Gold was at first a Fox News-aholic who wanted revenge for those killings―but only because he cared about the people who were killed and their families. Now, through self-education and mentors, whom he generously acknowledges throughout this book―he realized that we were all lied to on 9/11, and he has worked diligently to highlight the truth because he still cares about the people who were killed on that day, their families, and the people who are still being killed because of our country’s reaction to the attack.

My oldest child, Casey, was just one of those victims of the insane response to the attacks on 9/11 and I became famous and infamous because of my protests against the wars and the Bush regime―well, after I became notorious, I began to become literally bombarded by people and their causes because they believed that I had a platform, megaphone, or soapbox to highlight these causes.

Some of those causes were absurd―from the man who was convinced that Stephen King killed John Lennon, and if I would only help him expose that, world peace would ensue (he actually jumped on the hood of my car in Berkeley once) to the man who wanted me to come to Arizona to be a character witness for his friend who was accused of killing a cow. I kid you not!

The most prevalent of these people who bombarded me, though, were the 9/11 “Truthers.” I was harassed all over the world by them and I swear if one more person asked me if I saw Loose Change I was going to forget my pacifism and punch him (it was always a him) in the face. The sad thing about this harassment was that I never believed the so-called official story of 9/11 and would have tended to be an ally to these people, but they were so rude and pushy. And, I didn’t feel that I had the time or the inclination to wade through the stacks of information that they tried to force on me―True Confession time, I left a lot of that material in cabs or garbage cans.

I was sincerely beginning to loathe 9/11 “Truthers” with a passion I reserved for the U.S. Empire. The only thing that saved them from my total loathing was the fact that I realized that they were usually well-meaning and had good intentions, but I was, and still am, turned off by the “hologram,” “laser-beam,” “Israel was totally responsible” crowd that really make the movement seem insane.

I don’t remember when Jon Gold first started messaging me at the MySpace thing, but I remember he began by apologizing for the people in the movement who harassed me mercilessly―which got my attention. Here was a “Truther” (Jon hates that label) that wasn’t attacking me for my “cowardice” in not publicly saying that 9/11 was an “inside job.” Well, of course it was, but I (and neither does anybody else, no matter how sure they seem) know how far inside it went.

Jon Gold never demanded that I watch any movies, (although he helped a very good one get financing), read any books, or publicly announce anything using my platform. Gradually, my anger at the truth movement began to fade and I was able to do things like publicly support NYCCAN and its push for a ballot measure to have a new investigation of 9/11―and I have become friends with others in the movement and, through Jon, met Bob McIlvaine, whose son, Bobby, was killed on 9/11, and has become another tireless activist for justice.

Since our MySpace beginnings, Jon and I have become close friends. We have organized events in DC as members of Peace of the Action (POTA) and even were arrested together in front of the White House and we very romantically shared the first ever “stay away order” from said White House with about four other activists and went on trial for that arrest and were both exonerated.

9/11 truth is still not my “thing,” but because of Jon Gold, I am open to it and don’t have a knee-jerk reaction (which means I used to want to knee any Truther that approached me in the male parts―kidding―I do that sometimes) to anyone in the movement.

Jon is kind of young to be writing a memoir, so this is just Part One of a long and, we all hope, productive career of activism and a life filled with love, justice and peace.

    I learned of Cindy Sheehan from Bush’s criminal rush to war and the tragic consequences for her, her son Casey, other service families, and the people directly or indirectly in the cross-hairs of US military might. Her record of remaining true to her principles, despite the attempts by others to pull her in every direction, is one of her most endearing qualities.

    It gives me great pleasure to see her comments about Jon Gold, who I became aware of from Facebook (as well as a fan). The world is in desperate need of truth-tellers. Quite often, they win people over by their consistency in the face of all the other histrionics. Cindy and Jon both see their goals as long-term, and both possess the attributes to stand firm. I am truly honored to make both of their acquaintances, and am proud to add my voice of support to their push for justice and transparency.
