It is five years since news broke of a shooting at the
Hook elementary school in . Since then
researchers have looked into the facts surrounding the case and unearthed some very
worrying anomalies. In the background links below I provide examples of
mainstream media tactics for addressing... or rather not addressing, the points
made by conspiracy theorists about various crimes and I've come across another
very recent prime example; one that is so blunt that I thought at first that it
might be a satire of official story-belief. It is by Newsy, an online video-clip
news service, and is a short documentary entitled Truthers- When Conspiracy Meets Reality, see here for the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NczrIkBGD3M.
The first scene shows the local Newtown, Connecticut USA Newtown
priest weeping with emotion as he describes the funeral of one of the children.
It then interviews one of the parents, also grieving. There is moving, poetic imagery
and sad music. The narrator refers to the people who question Sandy
Hook... all of them, as "hoaxers". There is a hall of
infamy giving examples of some of the atrocities committed by conspiracy
theorists. The next part of the programme interviews the "hoaxers"
themselves, showing them laughing, high-fiveing and looking smug and
triumphant. When one of them is asked "What would convince you that the Sandy
Hook shooting really happened?" He replies obstinately
"Nothing... I know in my heart and soul that it's a lie." One of the
parents says: "That's the type of people... the largest network of village
idiots in the world." There is a brief segment on other topics such as the
Pulse nightclub shooting and the Boston
bombing. There are hints about the dangers of the unchecked First Amendment, Russian
hacking, free speech online and "fake news".
At no point, not once, was there a single mention of evidence. The intention of Truthers- When Conspiracy Meets Reality is not to explain why the official story of the
Sandy Hook shooting is true; its purpose is
to declare that anybody who questions the official story is simply a #BadPerson.
There are plenty of researchers that they could have spoken to, for example Jim
Fetzer, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcrIoNfxyik;
and Sofia Smallstorm, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3w0DYRA6BUg.
These two researchers have been left out of the production for two reasons: 1.
They have real evidence to support their position. 2. They conduct themselves
professionally and do not contact the parents or carry out personal attacks on
them. The conspirasphere has an online thug element, just like the skeptic
movement, atheist community and the New Age. This element is the official
story-believers' great gift and ally. Truthers-
When Conspiracy Meets Reality is a very concise and distilled version of
the propaganda I describe in other articles, such as those in the background
below. I was asked to take part in some of these TV productions myself... I
