“We don’t need no education….we don’t need no thought control.”
In a week where the establishment is desperate to reinforce the official 9/11 fable, a government-supported charity group has embarked on a mission to include the state-approved version of events on the school curriculum in the UK as part of a bid to “demolish conspiracy theories” surrounding the attacks.

It will only pursue the exact opposite. Continue with the rest of the story…
