All The 9/11 Conspiracy Theorists Are Rooting For Pete Carroll, Seattle Seahawks

by 3 years ago

For nearly two full weeks, we’ve been hit over the head with the New England Patriots’ misdeeds. They’ve been painted as the bad guys in the hype machine’s morality play.

Everyone seems to have forgotten the Seattle Seahawks have their own warts. Need I mention Adderall, anyone?

If you need a reason to reconsider jumping aboard the defending Super Bowl champions’ bandwagon, look no further than Pete Carroll’s feelings on 9/11.

When asked by USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday about the “9/11 Truth” movement and supporters who back him, Carroll made no attempt to deny his interest.

“Any notoriety is good I guess,” Carroll said, when told by USA TODAY Sports how he had become a favorite among Truth activists. “I will always be interested in the truth, yeah.”

Understandably, the tinfoil hat crowd is eating this stuff up and they see Carroll as a hero.

The 9/11 conspiracy movement is polarizing, so having even the implied support of a high-profile and successful figure such as Carroll has been a welcome boost.

“He kind of became an instant celebrity in the 9/11 Truth movement,” said Danny Torgersen, a member of the 9/11 Studies and Outreach group at Arizona State. “He’s won the Super Bowl once, he might win it again. That’s lots of credibility and popularity.”


Now … choosing between a bunch of conniving Massholes and truthers isn’t exactly easy. Either way it feels like you’re wading into the slop with some unwelcome company.

Guess it’s up to the individual Bro to decide the lesser of the two evils.
