There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Yukihisa Fujita is a member of the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) in the House of Councillors and a 9/11 Truther. Before kicking off his Truther career, he was most known for getting an admission from Prime Minister Taro Aso that his family's mining company, Aso Mining, had used Australian and American POWs as forced labor during World War II. In 2008, he decided to go off the deep end and on a 9/11 "truth" tour. He made a presentation to the National Diet of Japan demanding his fellow Councillors question the official story. Fujita repeated a number of long debunked Trutherisms, mostly about WTC7 and the "suspicious" wreckage at the Pentagon. He then whined about being called a conspiracy theorist but later co-authored a book called Seeking 9/11 Truth at Japan's Parliament with notorious Truther David Ray Griffin and appeared on Alex Jones. In an interview, Fujita claimed that his initial doubts were raised by internet videos such as Loose Change, which should give you a hint as to his credibility.
