The reason why Sandy Hook conspiracy theories is being used is because it is socially repugnant. Think about it. It is, essentially, denying the grief
of parents who lost their children or casting it in suspect light.
Exactly. I, smartly, took a break from ATS during that period and try to avoid the threads as much as possible because, sadly, they are clearly
insane. Actors? The whole thing was a hoax? That parent didn't look "sad" enough?
Honestly, you can ask questions, but once you start trying to convince people the kids were kidnapped and moved somewhere by the government, you've
lost touch with reality and are doing two things, neither of which are beneficial:
1) you are indeed hurting those grieving families
2) you are giving "them" ammunition to try to silence "us" with your insane illogical conspiracy.
There are various REAL conspiracies we can be concentrating on, questioning the validity of the grief of a parent who lost a child in the most
horrific way imaginable, is not getting you anywhere. You can easily approach this event without being a cold hearted dick. You can, plenty have.
Sadly, this event is exactly what it seems like, a troubled kid on drugs went to school and shot a bunch of people. 99% of the stuff people are
picking threads from stems from the fact that reporters don't report anymore, they repeat stuff people tweet. Most of the "smoking gun evidence"
of this conspiracy is nothing more than bad information.
Oh..oh..oh but Phishy, the story changed!
Of course it did, once they got some actual facts, it had to be revised.
Which brings us back to the OP, why so much MsM coverage? Because people like Alex Jones are out there demanding coverage, and giving "them"
exactly what they need:
A perfect example of a gun toting raving lunatic, and since AJ tends to stick his finger into every conspiracy that pops onto the internet, by
default, we're all raving lunatics, some with guns, some without. Until those of us able to distinguish fiction from reality can get some airtime,
we will continue to be marginalized. a poster mentioned occupy... Yes, thank you for that, a perfect and clear example of what is about to happen to
all of "us".
All it takes it a few more minutes of AJ on the MsM, or even worse, Icke.. give those morons enough airtime and we'll all be in padded cells by
September. And, of course, it is my humble opinion that this was the plan all along.
Parallels? 911 truthers. We had real issues, facts that needed addressing, and honest questions that begged for answers. Then the pod people came
out of the woodwork, and the space weapons idiots, the UFO did it crowd, the no planers (apparently they were holograms.....) the switched at the
airporters who suggest the planes were drones and all the real passengers are either working in area 51 or were dumped into the ocean Osama style.
Now see, that was by design, most of those idiots knew they were peddling crap, but that was the point, how can you take any evidence for thermite, or
the put option trades, or any of the other issues seriously, when the same sources are saying such ridiculous things.
This is where it's going, and I suggest anyone who still has their cart hitched to Alex Jones' wagon re-evaluate that relationship, and fast.
