. So its safe to say that the idea of conspiracy theorists being jerks and mental illness connected with mass killings is starting to make its rounds
in the general public.
That's because a large group of conspiracy theorists ARE acting like jerks and mental illness IS connected with these mass shootings. You can't blame
the media for manufacturing that.
I've heard no prominent voices in the conspiracy theory community come forward and say "hey, guys, let's just hold on a minute. If it turns out these
kids really are dead and the parents aren't actors then we're doing incredible damage to the reputation of anyone who ever questions an official
narrative in the future."
1- Believing that Sandy Hook was a false flag, or was somehow manipulated to push an agenda DOES NOT equate to believing in "crisis
Please stop perpetuating this notion. (I am addressing both the quoted member, and all people reading this.)
A lot of people believe there is a conspiracy involving the Sandy Hook incident, and fully believe and agree that innocent people died that day.
2- Even the people who are pushing the "crisis actors" scenario are not
, in my opinion, damaging the reputation or credibility of these people
who are the objects of speculation, as you suggest. If such an idea is "so crazy" and such a majority of the public would disagree with it, that does
not equate to any significant loss of reputation for those accused. It means they lost their rep with some extreme fringe conspiracy theorists. I
don't think too many in the "normal world" would lose sleep or cry over that. I could be wrong there.
3- I have heard that supposedly some "conspiracy theorists" are allegedly contacting, harassing, and/or threatening a couple people related to the
incident. That guy who found the kids in his yard, ,and the other guy whose license plate came up on a scanner-- whose name I can't mention. Now
first of all, if OP's theory is correct, maybe this supposed harassment didn't even take place, or was embellished?
Note that I said maybe. I'm sure there is a person or two out there capable of doing something like that. And again, if OP's theory is correct, maybe
they're being harassed by government agents posing as conspiracy theorists
4- What if.... just what if... this was a kind of set-up... in the respect that, regardless of what really happened with this tragedy, if the media
purposely misconstrued or muddied a lot of facts in order to get the "conspiracy theorists" talking?
Even better-- what if some of the "Crisis Actor" speculation came from agents, posing as conspiracy theorists
in order to get an ugly and
dangerous ball rolling, and maybe to perpetuate it?
Perhaps we, as a community, should heavily scrutinize anyone who is heavily pushing the "Actors" scenario. And absolutely, certainly
anyone who crosses the line and attempts to contact these people in the real world... be that for harassment or questioning. None of
us should be crossing that line, and none of us should be tolerating "members of the community" who cross that line. Let's kind of "police" ourselves,
so the government can't make the excuse that they need to.
