Yes, this thread is about Sandy Hook - And I expect that it won't last long. But while it does, I've got some points I'd love for the ATS community
to see before it's gone Mods, I'd love it if you could read the entire thing before closing, but if you can't, then I understand.
Point 1: Sandy Hook was NOT about gun control!
I believe I've seen threads and talks about gun control WAY in advance of this particular shooting. In fact, I can recall the same debate after EVERY
major shooting. Here's the thing - if the government really
wanted to take your guns away, they could do so without creating a "false flag".
It wouldn't take much either - all they would need to do is slip some small change into a bill that was about to be passed - Not enough people would
catch onto this before it was too late.
Point 2: People are NOT faking their grief & sorrow
I hate to break it to you guys, but there's a little thing called "shock" that can have some weird affects on your emotions - When you're a
parent, and you lose a child, it can take weeks, months or even years to recover from that kind of loss.
Let me paint a picture as to how this goes down (from a psychological perspective): After the child is dead, a parent almost NEVER instantly breaks
down - They refuse to believe that their child is gone, that they are no longer with them. True, this period can last for days, but it can also last
for a while. In the next phase, the parent finally realizes that they are gone, and this is when the "break down" occurs. The final phase involves
the parent trying to make themselves happy.
Recently, some members posted videos here that showed the parents "pretending to be sad". I watched the same videos, and saw REAL parents in REAL
shock ,- nothing fake about it.
When I lost my Grampa, I was just like the people in the videos - I appeared "fine" until two weeks after the funeral, then I "broke" my
composure, and didn't stop crying for two weeks. If someone were to record me before I broke down, they might even claim that I was "happy" about
my Grampa's death.
Point 3: It's NOT the Mod's fault that Sandy Hook threads seem to be getting closed down
There is a reason large forums have moderators - to maintain the peace around here. I ask you guys this question: What do you think would happen if
Westboro Baptist came on here and started saying that the killings were because "God hated Gays?". Guess what - I'd be willing to bet the threads
get closed down.
I praise them for doing this - Because if they didn't, can you imagine how one of those parents would feel if their own name came up from some
"poster" claiming they are a "fake", and that their kid "never died"? What do you think would happen to ATS if they decided to sue? You
wouldn't have a conspiracy website because it'd probably be taken down.
And for those of you with the argument "Can you imaging how an actor
would feel if they saw their name come up..", do you really think they
would "drop" the theoretical act upon seeing their name come up?
Hint: "A true, real actor stays in character for the entire play, and even carries it off the stage" (Dad, Musical actor).
Guess what? Even if they were "actors", same result - they'd still claim that the content on ATS was causing them some kind of harm.
So when the Mod's close down a thread like this, they are actually doing YOU, as the poster, a favor; They're keeping ATS alive, and out of trouble
for another day.
Point 4: The movies do not contain any links to the shootings or Hurricane
This is actually several points, so if you made it this far, congrats!
First, The Batman movie is a movie
people - it was made for the entertainment of the masses, the same way that all movies are made. Just
because a map seems to have a reference to something in a movie
, doesn't mean that it's saying "hey, there's something going to happen
here". There's no "hidden messages", subliminal programming, period.
If you want a movie that contains a lot of "hidden" messages, go check out the movie Knowing
, or Life of Pi
: Both contain a story
within a story.
Second, There are hurricane name lists that they rotate through to name the next storm that forms. In fact, here's the link to the lists:
Tropical Cyclone Names
. And to think, had we one, less hurricane in 2012, the "Superstorm Sandy"
would be "Superstorm Rafael".
Third, there's no relation between the hurricane's name and the place the shooting took place. Again, I hate to break it to you, but NOAA doesn't
say "Hey, there's going to be a shooting; lets put PART of the name of the school into our naming scheme for hurricanes". People, the shooting took
place at "Sandy Hook" elementary, not "Sandy" elementary.
Point 5: There are holes because the public doesn't need to know everything!
People, if there are "holes" in the tales, it's because the public doesn't need to know them! When a violent crime takes place, there's a reason
that police will release one or more versions of the story - it's because they themselves do not have all the facts, or are looking into possible
leads, such as other shooters, and don't want "the public getting involved". Last time I checked, the only, and I mean the only people that should
ever know the full details are the family of the deceased and law enforcement - I don't deserve the full details, nor do you. Personally, I would
hate to be on the team that had to investigate the crime scene, I don't even want to see the photos coming from there.
I understand 100% that this is a conspiracy forum, and that I probably "just don't understand" about the "Sandy Hook Conspiracies", but what I do
know is that some of the comments on the threads are downright insensitive - I never believe the 100% truth of a story, but I still find those
comments inappropriate to appear so soon. What many people forget, is that whenever something this traumatic happens, it affects a lot of people,
around the world - While you may feel that people are "faking their sorrow", guess what most of the people around the country are doing: Weeping
real tears. In Michigan, I've seen no less than 20 "funeral gatherings" in my location alone - I imagine that the rest of the country is and was
just like my area.
To the mods, I await any punishment I deserve for posting this - I did read the warning about "Sandy Hook" threads, and if posting this gets me
banned, then at least I can walk away with a smile
. It is a rant, hence being in the rant section, and it's a rant I think everyone should read
(even if they think it's incorrect).
