Conspiracies Swirl Around Sandy Hook
Tragic mass murder in Connecticut spawns multiple conflicting conspiracy theories
By Michael Collins
.For many years, but especially since the advent
of the Internet, responsible truth-seekers
and independent news sources
like AMERICAN FREE PRESS have been bedeviled —
besieged — by outrageous disinformation
confusing honest efforts to bring forth important
facts about history and the issues and events of the
day. We find an extraordinary array of irresponsible
sources spinning some outlandish claims —
conspiracy theories, if you will — that confuse
matters further. And this is not to suggest conspiracies
don’t exist at the highest and lowest levels.
In fact, over the years, critics have slammed
AMERICAN FREE PRESS for allegedly promoting “conspiracy
theories” when all we have done is report
the facts, however uncomfortable they may be for
some very real conspirators.
Unfortunately, many of the foolish conspiracy
theories circulating today arise because those who
are looking for conspiracies have a tendency to
base their conclusions on what is just downright
sloppy and inaccurate reporting by the “mainstream”
media in the first place.
The big media has never been a good source for
anything of critical substance, but still, in this day
of 24-seven “news” coverage — making current
events a variation of “reality” television — bad reporting
and otherwise honest mistakes by establishment
news sources, often made in the heat of
the moment, are suddenly the subject of frenzied
speculation. They are then turned into something
they are not: the foundation for conspiracy theories
purporting to explain “what really happened”
regarding some event gripping the public mind.
Right now there are widely circulated claims
that no children were killed at Sandy Hook, that
it’s all a hoax. Others say that local police and firemen
were in on the shooting, working to ensure as
many kids as possible were gunned down. Others
insist it was a CIA “mind control” operation. They
claim the alleged shooter was brainwashed into
being the “patsy” and that other gunmen carried
out the murders — the same ones other conspiracy
theorists say didn’t even happen at all.
And yes, the CIA does engage in mind control.
This writer’s book, The Judas Goats,* has a whole
chapter on the topic. So don’t say I’m denying the
existence of mind control.
One conspiracy-monger claimed Israel’s Mossad
orchestrated Sandy Hook in order to hurt Barack
Obama. Yes, he said that.
Others — who don’t like Obama — said that, yes,
the Mossad did it, but left out the part that the
shooting was designed to hurt the president.
So, depending on what you think of Obama, you
have two different versions of that theory. But
there’s no proof of Mossad involvement in this case.
And before accusing me of “covering up for the
Mossad,” bear in mind I have publicly charged the
Mossad with being behind the JFK assassination,
the Oklahoma City bombing and the 9-11 attacks.
Time and time again it’s been discovered that
many mass shooters have been on mind-bending
psychiatric drugs. Frankly, if I were the head of
one of the companies that produce such drugs, I
would keep a “crisis team” ready for action every
time there’s a shooting. My Internet trolls would
be out there cranking out stories saying “the CIA”
brainwashed the shooters, thereby misdirecting attention
from what could be the real underlying
cause. There’s a conspiracy theory to chew on.
AFP tries to stick to what we believe to be the
facts and we won’t publish any story because “it
sounds good” or because somebody thinks “there
might be something to it.”
