I was relatively quiet during the Sandy Hook incident on the forums. It took me back to the Dark Knight shootings earlier that year in which I
witnessed a very strange and unbelievable chain of events. I witnessed and evidenced the media lying, changing the story and making no redactions.
They were simply discarding information whether it was true or not, muddying the facts with fiction and diluting the truth to the point that nobody
knew what was real and what wasn't.
I think it's been a long standing problem with media outlets in the US specifically. It was apparent during Sandy Hook and so much so that I tuned
out. I couldn't bare to watch the story unfold, and the deaths their used as collateral for an anti-gun movement. It was disgusting, no matter who did
it.. It was heinous and vile.
I am in agreement that there is a difference between denial and conspiracy. Generally, my "conspiracy theories" don't surmise that NOTHING happened,
but rather something happened but not the way we've been told. The true motives or true events are not revealed to us. There were no doubt deaths on
that day and the people who believe otherwise are truly hopeless.
What didn't (in my opinion) happen.. Are the elements of the "official" story. The real motive hasn't been released and who was involved never will be
in my opinion. There were so many holes in the "official" story that it would make less sense to believe it than to speculate to some extent. The
story was sensationalized and hashed over and over for 2 months. The media twisted the facts, reported fallacies and never differentiated the truth.
The people are OWED an explanation, most specifically the families and community of Sandy Hook. It has been long enough. If the story was as cut and
dry as they stated, then the work involved to examine and produce the story to the public would have been done long ago.
I think we're seeing a delay because everyone is aware of how critical the public is growing in events like these. As they say.. "The Devil is in the
Details" and they don't want the details to damn them. If the public was aware of any lies or lack of integrity in a case like this.. The media would
lose so much of their hypnotic grasp and all of their benefactors would relinquish some amount of their control/power.
Did it happen? Hell yes it did. If you believe otherwise then you are out of touch with reality. The people who believe it didn't happen at all or
that no one was killed are the "crazies". They are the people that give the Conspiracy Theorists a bad name, and the same people that the media
focuses on when any light is brought to this realm of thinking.
Did it happen the way it was reported, or the way that law enforcement has hinted? I don't believe it for a second. There are far too many
inconsistencies and holes. The theatrics in the media and by our own president were over the top. There was no delay in the government's reaction to
utilizing the events as political fodder for their own agendas. No matter what we've been told, or will be told.. I am confident that the full truth
will never be revealed "officially". So, it still remains a challenge of the public to uncover the truth, but it must be done tastefully and with
respect to the fallen. As harsh as it may sound, one life is not worth more than another. It may be hard to talk about Sandy Hook in particular
because children were the majority of deaths, but far more children died in 9/11 and the events that followed and we're able to discuss those events
more openly. The forum was built on denying ignorance, and if that means disproving the ignorant folks who propose completely ignorant and ludicrous
ideas and conspiracies.. Then that to is our duty. The duty is truth. Censoring discussion doesn't abate lunacy or ignorance. It serves to promote it,
because there is no resolution or truth given. I can't say that I agree with a lot of what people have proposed as conspiracies but part recognizing
the truth is disproving conspiracies presented as truth.
As a long standing and contributing member (not as much as others of course).. I think moving this thread to the "LOL" section is just as distasteful
as the people denying children died. You're denying the forum the ability to express the very thing the forum was built on. I don't care if I step on
toes saying this..
The only "LOL" I get out of this is the way it is being handled by the staff at ATS.
