Sandy Hook truthers claim the Newtown massacre never happened

Yes, there are now Sandy Hook truthers.

They’re people who find a government, or Jewish, conspiracy behind what did, or did not, take place on December 14, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut when 20 six and seven year olds were mass murdered by a young man using his mother’s legally-purchased weapons.




There’s also a Sandy Hook conspiracy theory about the entire shooting not having occurred at all. A sort of Sandy Hook Capricorn One version of what happened – the entire thing, you see, was a hoax:

2. There's a part of me...

That kind of envies these delusional types. When reality gets too painful, just convince yourself that the facts are just wrong. We probably all do it to some extent, but some of these rwers have declared all-out war on reality.

3. "rational to conclude... Lanza was not yet another 'lone gunman."

And some, conclude that it is part of a larger conspiracy with Lanza merely being a public pawn...

http://www.sott.net/article/256232-Sandy-Hook-hoaxes-and-the-terror-of-the-situation

The fact of the matter is that there are some serious unanswered questions about the official narrative of what happened at Sandy Hook on the morning of Dec. 14th 2012. In the absence of any clarification of these outstanding questions, and taking into consideration other similar massacres and the problems with the official narrative around those, not to mention the virtual certainty that an elite cabal has existed in the USA for several decades and has been involved in assassinations, it is entirely rational to conclude, on the balance of this collective evidence, that Adam Lanza was not yet another 'lone gunman'.


I think these conspiracy theories are a form of coping mechanisms for some, as the truth will literally shatter the very basis of their beliefs.

11. Wow. I just saw the post...

... along with several others you listed. Clearly has no place in DU.

That aside, meta is a very stressful section - even for first time readers like me.

6. Just call them what they are - insane - and leave it at that.

My heart still hurts for the parents and families of the victims...while so many Americans have just pushed this to the side of their memories and moved on to other things - hey isn't honey boo-boo and her mom on soon? - these families are irrevocably torn and will never be whole again. I feel such a deep connection to them because there but for the grace of god go I...I have a 6-year old daughter (who turns seven this Saturday) and she is the light of my life. On top of being daddy's princess and one of the things I would gladly lay down my life for on this planet, she is also a first grader and the exact same age as the victims were. In her, I have a daily reminder of the victims and a constant recognition of the fact that while I was getting hugs and kisses at bedtime the other night, in Newtown there was a father or mother quietly crying while looking at the empty bed of their child, their princess, their light and reason to live. It still makes my eyes well with tears to think of it and how inhuman the whole thing is...

The horror of the way those children's lives ended, and their teachers and staff - as well as the trauma of the survivors that will go on and on without end is too much to bear if you stop to REALLY think about it. A room full of girls and boys, starting a school day before Christmas, laughing and playing and talking about Santa Claus and presents and parties and midnight masses and trips to grandma's house and other family traditions with their classmates...a teacher trying to get them to concentrate on their school lessons with so much anticipation that the kids can barely stand it, can't wait for the end of the week and the start of Christmas vacation...a staff pondering their need to finish shopping and holiday plans and knowing that the year was so close to over. And then in a flash, and an act of insanity none of us can or will ever understand,it was all gone.

Bullet riddled corpses with tear streaked faces, blood and brains litter the rooms and soak into the desks and floors. Bullet holes replace the push-pins on the map of the USA with everyone's vacation sites displayed. Broken glass and shredded wood are all that's left of a school desk and the window that minutes earlier a young child had been absent-mindedly gazed out. Dead bodies and sobbing survivors replace the soundtrack of Christmas forever in the minds of first responders and children in other rooms. Gun shot echoes and screams cut short with an abruptness and finality that are jarring to the soul are now the sleigh bells and jingles of many, too many. Terror hits the parents of the school and some receive a reprieve while others see their lives ripped into pieces that won't ever fit together again, missing entire sections of their will and reason to live, taken from them not by freak occurrence of nature or man-made accident or disease or anything remotely fathomable...snuffed out and brutalized in ways that forever scar a memory. Killed with the ruthless efficiency of a slaughter house bringing in a side of beef. Snuffed out with the callous disregard of assholes like Wayne LaPierre and others who see this as a political issue and as such can readily turn off their humanity and decency to suggest that the children would be alive only if we have MORE guns and higher capacity ammo.

I look at my daughter, hold her close and I am still stricken for the families of the dead and cannot help but think how destroyed I would be if the last time I ever got to see my little girl was in an autopsy room with bullet holes through her head and body and the knowledge that it was all for nothing. Those kids did nothing to the maniac shooter or his quack of a gun-nut mother. They paid the price for America's fetish with arms. I want REAL change in the wake of this tragedy. Nothing short of a total rethinking of the gun culture of this increasingly cesspool like nation.

If some mouth breathing kook came up to me in this situation and started spewing their hate and delusion of government staging EVERYTHING, yet being too incompetent to run ANYTHING, and started talking about these kids' deaths and the helplessness of their parents and siblings, grandparents and friends, aunts, uncles and neighbors being FAKED, I would swiftly deliver an open handed slap across their face and deal with the consequences later. I would only be sorry that I couldn't distill the anguish of the many and dump it squarely into the empty hearts of the callous few.

I have only two words for such people - FUCK YOU!

8. The local news here in CT had an interview tonight with Gene Rosen

The man from Newtown who took kids into his house after the shootings. Conspiracy theorists are calling him and harassing him. They are harassing the parents of the dead children. Disgusting. It pisses me off beyond all other conspiracy theories because I know people from the town. My best friend's fiance is a CT State Trooper. Believe me, it was all too real.

12. I'm sure you've read my excerpt on the Video & Multimedia Page

I got so frustrated with this piece of garbage that I took an hour of my time to simply prove how inaccurate the widely "Viral" "Sandy Hook Exposed" video is. It's simply sick. If the tragedy wasn't a good reason to look at real gun control, it was a great reason to look at the need to increase funding for mental health.

And then we sit back and wonder, what's gone so wrong in the last 20 years? It's right in front of us.

How much lower can anyone go when you say helping children get back home is not an desirable noble action.

17. There is a mystery here, but it's about the media

Why did so many outlets run with so many bad, unconfirmed reports so early?

18. They all want to be

the first outlet with the info. Rather than wait to confirm the information and check that the source is legit, they just forge ahead and hope for the best.

19. So with their logic that must mean if someone takes out these "truthers" then nothing happened??

I wonder if their grieving friends and family would say the same??
