Is it P.C. to be a Truther?

Boss Obama quickly hired Truther Van Jones to his staff ... and remained on staff until [the conservative] media continued to point the ugly truth (pardon the pun) out. Most recently, MSNBC hired Truther Touré as part of its latest pundit show. Locally, Jason "Trust Fund" Scott of the Local Gaggle of Moonbat Bloggers once wrote

While reasonable people can disagree about whether or not George Bush had prior knowledge of the 9/11 attacks, nobody disputes the fact that he wanted a "pearl harbor" [sic] type event to happen in order to create a pretext for attacking Iraq.

Now, in Missouri, a prominent Democrat -- and 9/11 Truther -- is running for statewide office:

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.

“Why [was] 9/11 was a official holidy [sic] for all jewish [sic] people worked in the the [sic] WTC?” Alam asked in an Internet discussion titled, “Was 9/11 a conspiracy??”

Alam went on to tout the 9/11 Truther film Loose Change 9/11, and challenged readers to “tell me how many of the Jewish people died on the 9/11 tragedy?

Asked in an interview Monday about his provocative views, Alam stood by his controversial writings, admitting that he has been “waiting to discuss it with somebody.”

“My question was, ‘What’s the reason not a single Jew was killed on that day,’” Alam said, maintaining that his inquiries are based on facts, rather than a bias against Jewish people. “Was there a single Jew killed on that day?”

For what it's worth, the State Dept. estimates that between 200-400 Jews died in the 9/11 attacks.

Don't politicians and pundits who even raise (not agree with) the issue of Obama's birthplace get roundly -- and quickly -- panned? Are there any Birthers with their own show (or routinely featured) on Fox News?
