Killing the Messengers

“Tribute To The Bravery OF The O’Hare Witnesses”
Can you imagine what it takes to do what the O’Hare witnesses have done? Twelve employees, who worked for the airlines, and came forward to tell of witnessing a UFO over the O’Hare airport. History has shown what can happen when commercial pilots and other professionals come forward with UFO information. Bravo to all of you for standing up to tell what you believe is the truth --no matter what! America was built by people of good character like youself.
What Will the Skeptics Do with This?
By the time the debunkers get through with their explanations, using the theory of weather or whatever, and applying a could-have-been scenario to the O’Hare incident, the scientific community will, as always, fall quietly back to sleep. They will indicate the witness are in some way dishonest. They may not say it but it will be implied.
The scientific community’s attitude toward UFO witnesses reminds me of the guy in the bank commercial: the customer looks very tiny on the bank president’s desk, he wants a small business loan. He catches on fire – meanwhile, Bank President’s asking a manager what does this mean?...who is this guy?...and why does he catch on fire like that? Bank President laughs at the audacity of this "Small Business" Guy for trying to play in the big business arena.
The good witnesses at O’Hare came forward in a big arena just looking for the truth. When I see people who have a lot to lose come forward, I once again have faith in the human race. If the skeptics (so-called) address these witnesses at all, it will be with the same attitude as the bank president: your opinion is too small to matter.
But what these witnesses did could be a sign of our times in America, a good sign. For decades, we have been told to go to sleep --on the UFO issue, the Iraq War, and other issues. Many of these good witnesses believe in our government, in the dignity of the institution. But they’ve found out what many in the UFO field have known for decades: the government and many agencies will never acknowledge these crucial issues --or the true data-- publicly.
I have a feeling most of the American people are getting tired of the We Know More Than You Do attitude of institutions and debunkers who will not look at the facts. And I think Americans are tired of a government that just doesn’t seem to bother with facts anymore.
But maybe something new is happening out there: maybe we’ve come to a crossroads where the powers that be continue to ignore the people, expecting them to go away…but this time, the people don’t go away.
Maybe, instead of sitting on the sidelines while skeptics and government agencies cast disdain on the witnesses and the whistleblowers, we should realize that these good people are not the problem. We need to start defending these witnesses as a statement to the skeptics. Unless we stop allowing these, “defenders of the faith” with their cook up witch trials directed against the UFO witnesses of great character, we many find the true messenger is dead, and all we have left are the frauds.
