Blink 182 Singer Claims 9/11 an Inside Job

tom_delange_blink_182_picking_nose.jpgTom DeLange, former guitarist for one of my favorite bands, Blink 182, forgot to put the tinfoil hat on at a recent interview at a San Diego radio station. 9/11 was not the work of Muslim terrorists, but rather the work of our own government. From what I understand, this isn't the first time he's opened his mouth to reveal his stupidity on 9/11, but it's new to me.

Yeah, this is the same guy who wrote these lyrics from Aliens Exist

--we all know conspiracies are dumb.
Dumbass. Then again, this website claims Tom believes in aliens, that he has been abducted, and that he is the victim of alien anal probing....

Apparently, he was Eric Cartman in the previous life. That would explain a lot.

Via Drew Curtis's minions, this from prison planet:

During a hosting spot on a San Diego’s KAVA-FM radio station, DeLonge talked with Professor James Fetzer about evidence of 9/11 inside involvement.

"We do know that the buildings came down in a fashion extremely similar to a controlled demolition of a building - we do know that expertise that is needed to fly those gigantic planes into that exact location could never have been achieved by someone that just learned how to fly a small plane, said DeLonge."...

"Cheney knew that the planes are coming in and he capped the order to leave it alone so it could hit."...

"It's so weird how our own government did it to us, 9/11 was not perpetrated by a bunch of people that just learned how to fly planes,"...

"We're talking about 60-70% of the American people are actually starting to think that there's a different story, why are we as Americans sitting back and letting this happen to us?"...

"This isn't about the red or blue, this is about this administration being involved in something that is really really scary and really really dark and deceptive."

The thing that always attracted me to Blink was that they weren't part of the whiney Berkeley cowd (I'm looking at you Green Day) that tried to emulate the overtly political lyrics of the British punk invasion. Instead, they were solidly Orange County and seemed to follow the American punk tradition of the Ramones. Maybe they were trying to say something "important", but were just too dumb to get it right.
