Pro-Trump Media Insists Bomb Threats Against Clinton, Obama, CNN are 'Pure BS,' a 'False Flag'

Source: DAILYBEAST




10.24.18 11:41 AM ET


Minutes after news broke of “potential explosive devices” being mailed to the homes of former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, along with CNN’s New York City studio, the dark corners of the conservative Internet were declaring it a plot to gin up empathy for Democrats.

Cries that the bomb threats was merely a “false flag” operation were evident on Twitter and pro-Trump forums. Many of the personalities pushing the claim were fringe types. But not all of them.

Popular talk radio host Rush Limbaugh hinted that the attempted bombings were set-up by Democrats, saying they would serve a political “purpose.”

“It’s happening in October,” Limbaugh said. “There’s a reason for this.”

Frank Gaffney, an Islamophobe who has held posts on Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) presidential campaign and in the Ronald Reagan White House, suggested the packages were a “deflection” technique. “None of the leftists ostensibly targeted for pipe-bombs were actually at serious risk, since security details would be screening their mail,” he tweeted. “So let’s determine not only who is responsible for these bombs, but whether they were trying to deflect attention from the Left’s mobs.”

3. What do you bet that

this afternoon Trump will start off with a prepared statement about how these bombs are a bad thing, then -- given that he's probably been reading/watching right-wing media all morning -- he'll veer off into their talking points and state that "people are saying" that it might be a false flag, nobody knows who did it, it could be someone on the right, could be someone on the left, etc. etc. etc. thus totally undermining his initial statement.

20. What is remarkable is this jerk..................instead of not going to Wisconsin

he is going to go and show the entire country that he is a failure on leadership in real time.................your comments are spot on.............we are now seeing this failure in real time again and again ..................it reminds me of the Twilight Zone show "Its a Good Life"

No one will speak against the kid, and if someone does he makes them into a jack in the box................just to control the situation.......................and then there is Gaffney..................he reminds me of the entire family in the show Its a Good life, all wrapped into one .......................living in that paranoid state

6. Well, these Trump humping Cult45ers certainly are predictable.



It's not like Trump hasn't drummed up hatred & fear or deliberately lied, spread disinformation and encouraged violence from his crazy followers towards Democrats, Liberals, and journalist that don't suck up to and agree with him.

7. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised

if this was some type of "reverse false flag" operation perpetrated by the Trump crowd. Think about it.

9. Exactly, I posted this in another thread.

 

This scares the shit out of me, something doesn't smell right. Some poor left wing kook is going to get blamed and he will be gunned down in a hail of bullets.

I would not put it past Trump as doing a reverse false flag operation. God help us if this is all a set up.

14. So where has Rudy Ghouliani been the past couple of months?

 

He does have his cronies in the NY division of the FBI. Funny how the first bomb got placed in a mail box at Soros house where he wasn't even there probably. So now the FBI has a day or 2 to watch for the other bombs that for some unknown reason come days later, why?

Look, I hope I am full of shit about this. I hope the guy they catch is not a left wing set up kook who gets shot to smithereens, all I am saying is that I would not put this past Trump to help Republicans right before the election.

I am not saying that a left wing person did this, I am saying that a left wing person may be the fall guy for this.

12. Not just the right wing media!

 

There's a guy on MSNBC now who keeps saying, "Oh, don't be too hasty to say this is a RW thing!"
It could be anyone! In this climate it could be someone trying to muddy the waters!

Mrs. Greenspan was playing "both siderism" during her whole show trying to equate "Il Duce's"
violence talk with people confronting others in public, or demonstrating in the streets.

Heaven forbid we call it for what it is! He calls for violence in his diatribes, and we get it.
What a shock!

13. WHY is this filth being posted here?

 

Isn't it bad enough it's being reported on the news? We have to spread it around here on a site most of us love because we're among likeminded people? Don't bother answering. I'm trashing this thread immediately.

15. What filth?

 

You don't think that Ghouliani's pals in the FBI wouldn't set someone up to make it look like a lefty did this?

I hope to god Jacob's scenario is totally wrong.

22. I sincerely ask that you reconsider this notion.

The men and women of the FBI are dedicated, hard-working professionals. They put their lives on the line everyday in defense of this country and all her citizens. The mind set required to do their job simply does not permit room for the notion of putting innocent Americans' lives on the line for political gain or theater. To suggest that they would be involved in something as heinous as allowing pipe bombs to be sent through the mail to anyone sounds more like the rantings of some of trmp's less-than tethered supporters.

16. My guess would be

a cabal intent on disrupting or delaying the elections which are not going to well for Republicans. But let's see how it plays out, if they trace the perps quickly, or if another wave will spread more public fear.

25. Interesting thought:

If Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, Sean Hannity and the Fox folks, Steve King (IA), Louis Gohmert (TX), Bitch McConnell (KY) had received home made pipe bombs at their homes, and Democrats had called it a "false flag" or "hoax" to boost trump supporters to get out the vote, the RNC would be screaming like their tootsies had been caught in a twister.

Amirite ?
