If this is the best the MSM has to counter “conspiracy theory” blogs like this, then we don’t have too much to worry about. I just wish they’d link to the site.
Among keyboard mourning and 280-character fury, a small but determined minority spring up in the wake of mass shootings to insist that events were staged – concocting monstrously complex tales involving “crisis actors”, the “deep state” and accusations that attacks are “false flag” murders being used, for example, as a pretext to institute gun control reforms.
Professional student Hogg (videos exposing him are already scrubbed from Youtube) professionally dodges the question and changes the talking point.
I’ve also noticed that the media wants to frame believers/non-believers in the classic left/right dialectic. This immediately helps eliminate half of the audience, as people who choose sides will ignore anything labeled the opposite. More classic d?vide et imper?. Trying to fit those that don’t believe the media into this frame is like putting a round peg in a square hole – it doesn’t work.
Where the ‘Crisis Actor’ Conspiracy Theory Comes From – Motherboard (h/t Silverbird via bit.ly/fakechat)
Before Newtown and Tracy’s blog posts, conspiracy theorists had often said that events like the 9/11 attacks were inside government jobs or false flag operations, but I can find little evidence of anyone suggesting that national tragedies were outright faked.
Amusing passage. Obviously this controlled outlet didn’t do a quick search to find fakeologist or cluesforum.info.No tags for this post.
