Every conspiratorial allegation about the tragic Newtown shootings, answered

BY ALEX SEITZ-WALD


While it’s often best not to engage with conspiracy theorists on their own turf, as you can probably never convince them, it’s worth setting the record straight on all the myths and phony evidence surrounding the Sandy Hook massacre.

We’ve rounded up every major piece of evidence we could find that leads theorists to say the “official narrative” of events “doesn’t add up” and provided the facts that show why these questions can be easily explained. We’ve ignored the empty accusations with no evidence to support them (it was the Jews!) and focused only on the theories that try to present actual empirical or circumstantial evidence.

Let us know if we missed any and we’ll add to it as more myths emerge. In no particular order, here is your comprehensive guide to disproving the Sandy Hook Truthers:

2. I agree with Connecticut State Police spokesperson Lt. Paul Vance

Connecticut State Police spokesperson Lt. Paul Vance...”There’s no hoax. I was there. I stepped over the dead children. That’s no hoax. And it’s offensive to me as an investigator, and it’s offensive to the families who lost their babies to have people come up with silliness like this. Whatever their reasoning is, whatever their rationale is, it’s just terribly offensive,” Vance added.

I find the 9/11 truthers to be equally offensive.

8. And so...?

This is what I said..."I find the 9/11 truthers to be equally offensive."

As someone who knows people that lost loved ones on that day, I stand by that statement.

3. When people spout bullshit, I just ask them to prove it

or ask how they came to that conclusion in a way that didn't involve Drudge/NewsMax/Fox/RW radio hacks/etc....
