Sandy Hook Conspiracy Video Goes Viral, Questions Everything

by at . Comments

It only took a matter of days after Adam Lanza opened fire inside Sandy Hook Elementary School for conspiracy theories to pop up on the Internet.

The Sandy Hook Shooting - Fully Exposed, a self-produced mini-documentary, has rapidly make the leap from obscurity to viral success. Here it is:

Many Sandy Hook conspiracy theories have popped up since the attack. Most are totally preposterous; all spurred by questioning authority and the media.

Among them: Lanza's father was due to testify in hearings about a banking scandal; Obama orchestrated the shootings to enact gun control laws.

Also among them: The Dark Knight Returns and/or Hunger Games predicted the shooting, or Newtown didn't happen at all, according to a professor.

It turns out that the media portrayal of the unspeakable tragedy has become the rallying cry for those who buy into Sandy Hook conspiracy theories.

There was more than one shooter, for instance, or not as many kids died, or the parents we saw on TV were actors, or the press is hiding facts, etc.

The above video cites the confusion around the initial reports as a reason to believe his conspiracy, and its creator is adamant that he's not denying Newtown.

"I really try to stress this video was about putting together a bunch of evidence and raising questions that others could research and answer," he wrote.

Choosing to remain anonymous, the video's creator spoke about it with Gawker.

"[I]t all started when me and my friends used to research 9/11 in high school," says the individual behind the video, posted on the YouTube channel "ThinkOutsidetTheTV."

"That's what got me started researching government cover ups."

"Once I learned about all the false flag attacks in history that have been proven to be true, I knew it was only a matter of time before another came a long."

The "false flag attack," in which the true belligerents of a terrorist attack, shooting, or disaster conceal their identities, is a common trope among conspiracy theorists.

If you believe in the idea that false flag attacks occur with regularity - and spend a lot of time in the dregs of YouTube - it's hard not to see them everywhere.

"When Sandy Hook first happened i just had a feeling like it was all too perfect," the video creator continued. "I just had this feeling deep down."

"These people and the whole town had this artificial vibe about them."

The perceived "artificiality" of the grieving parents is a cornerstone piece of "evidence" produced by Sandy Hook Truther: SandyHookHoax (dot) com.

The premiere Sandy Hook Truther site on the web, it has an entire section called "All Actors," under an enormous header reading "NO TEARS."

That section is devoted to news videos of families in Newtown, Conn., deemed insufficiently grief-stricken by the growing number of conspiracy believers.

What do you think? Do you think any of the Sandy Hook shooting or subsequent media coverage was manufactured? And why? Or is this just pure insanity?

There are a lot of things questionable about The Sandy Hook shooting. MBC has confirmed there was no rifle in the school building. All Lanza had was hand guns. So if people were shot with an AR15 how did Lanza do that when he only brought in hands guns Not to mention I watched the first six hours of coverage when this story broke. Either the media was just out right lying or they were trying to paint a picture that someone was feeding them. I also want to say that I am very proud of all the people questioning this. It is about time the people of this country told the main stream media ENOUGH! We ate not all a bunch of mindless assholes who are going to believe the lies you tell us! Don't stop America until the real truth is told!

What is MBC? Because they are wrong, and you are a fool to believe them. The mainstream media that you are saying should be ignored were the ones making things up in the first few minutes - so why do you believe that? Watch out - aliens!

I have to say, you have been a huge disappointment. I gave you big brains, and you refuse to use them. I gave you a heart, and you care for nothing. I gave you aluminum foil, and you make hats and wall coverings. I better write The Bible, the Sequel, and straighten you lard-heads out.

The media focuses solely on those who say it didn't happen.
They demonize persons who question the story. When talking about the FAU professor on FOX, one analyst said he was no different than skinheads who claim the Holocaust didn't happen. Another analyst went on to say that he should be fired from teaching - for if he had written in his blog something about abusing girls he would be fired?! Is it not obvious how they causally try to associate those who question with negative stimuli?
Is it not obvious how they pull emotional chords in viewers to cloud their reasoning ability?
Is it not obvious that the establishment benefits from a populace divided? They don't care to address the legitimate questions being raised. They don't focus on those saying it did happen, but not in the way officials and media have presented. Don't tell me I have no sympathy or empathy or emotion. I feel bad for loss of life, yet I am also aware that people die all the time all over the world. If the media were to cover all the tragedies that are taking place on an almost daily basis around the world, there wouldn't be enough tissues for the "emotions first" crowd. My heart goes out to the families who lost loved ones in all tragedies past and future, but does it really do anything to assume that posture? Wouldn't an understanding of the truth of what happened in the tragedy be the best way to prevent it from happening again? Isn't preventing this from happening again the best way to honor the fallen? Or have we been conditioned to believe that questioning official stories is like walking on someone's grave? Have we been conditioned to believe that when a tragedy occurs, the most we can do is just say how bad we feel and that those lost are in our prayers? Have we been conditioned to blindly trust "authority"? Have we been conditioned to not think critically? "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself."

I live in Sandy Hook. The people who are questioning what happened to my town and my friends are re-victimizing grieving families. I'm sure it's a lot of fun to use false media reports as "evidence" - but you are also hurting people, badly, and I hope the pain comes back to you in some way when you eventually realize what you did. These hoaxers are evil. Want to see bodies, and more crying? You are sick. We are crying every day. I really question whether "love wins" because so many people have lost their moral compass, or are just so uneducated they believe the most bizarre conspiracy theories.

questioning the media stories is not re-victimizing and it is certainly not having lost the "moral compass".

Yep, you guessed right! Me and 40 parents of dead kids and 6 families of dead teachers and two self-inflicted wounded and 12 families with first graders who escaped the two classrooms. Oh, and 400 other elementary school students and their teachers. We all got a free trip to Disney World for it! Put on your aluminum helmet.

Instead of pouring contempt on the heads of those inquiring as to the truth, perhaps you should ask harder questions. The most interesting but of evidence towards a cover up is the fact that the father of that little girl was obviously jovial and laughing and quickly switched to sad, "getting into character" before a press conference. The most interesting peice is the fact that Presidnet Obama was video taped and pictured with the little girl in question, though I'm not sure what it means. Conspiracies have gotten a bad wrap, but if there is any credibility to the mainstream Media, and there is not, they would ask some of The questions people who are labeled conspiracy theorists are asking, because journalism is supposed to be about the truth.

You're an idiot. Robbie had three beautiful blonde daughters, all young. One died. You saw a living sister on Obama's lap. Robbie wasn't laughing - he was trying to contain his emotions to talk. You people are sick and I hope there is a special place for you eventually.

Actually, since I claim to know Robbie, I must be a paid government agent. What's lacking in the hoaxer crowd is basic human decency, and a few dozen IQ points.

I am a firefighter/EMT, and I can tell you from personal experience the scene is a little questionable. One reason the ambulances/fire trucks wait behind the yellow tape is to preserve evidence, and make sure the scene is safe for EMS personnel. Typically, when you arrive on a crime scene of this nature EMS would arrange a triage center. EMS crew would asses the patient, and the most critical patients would be transported to the ER first. So being you don't see a triage center is a little questionable. Also, when your working with blood everywhere your going to be wearing maximum PPE (personal protective equipment) i.e gloves, eye protection, mask to assure that you don't retract a disease. I didn't see any EMS or police wearing gloves. Another thing, when your working with multiple casualties you would go through a lot of PPE I don't see any laying around either? The medic on scene is going to asses every patient whether he thinks they're dead or alive with a 12 lead to see if there is a heart beat. The medic would change gloves after every patient, and probably through gloves on the ground. After, EMS leaves the fire department or a bio hazard crew would come clean up the mess. I didn't see no such crew either. I believe there are some questions that need to be answered.

Another idiot. First, we live in a small town, and NOTHING like this has ever happened. And you focus on process? There was a triage center. Two - TWO kids were still alive, barely. Triage was meaningless. There were piles of 6-year old bodies in two classrooms. The first responders did their jobs, but they were significantly traumatized. I would love one of our first responders to have you alone in a room.

Just wondering.....everyone is an idiot if they dont go along with TOM?????? IF the EMTs were allowed to enter the area after the building had been cleared then maybe those 2 children and possibly others would still be alive today.According to radio transmission it was cleared pretty fast!So why were the ems responders not allowed to go in???I have to agree with OK-firefighter on this one.

The minds of conspiracy theorists as put by scientific study: "But what the conspiratorial mind sees as misinformation and lies, others see as merely perfectly ordinary incomplete and inaccurate information following a multifaceted tragedy. Especially in the hours and first days after such a chaotic and horrifying event, witnesses can be confused and mistaken. Police officers and reporters can misspeak, or be given incorrect information. Not every single statement about what occurred, from dozens of different people in different places at different times, will agree in every detail. Three different witnesses to a minor car accident will often give three slightly different accounts of what they saw, so it's unrealistic to expect dozens of people who were involved in a chaotic school massacre to report exactly the same things. Part of the reason that conspiracy theories linger is that any contradictory evidence — no matter how conclusive or compelling — can just be dismissed by claiming that it's part of the cover-up. There is ultimately no evidence that would satisfy most conspiracy theorists. Those who distrust the government will use any excuse to support their beliefs, logical or not. Conspiracy theorists prefer complex mysteries over simple truths, and find mystery where none exists. Research has shown not only that a person who believes in one conspiracy theory is likely to support others, but also contradictions don't deter conspiracy theorists. The idea that the Sandy Hook massacre was faked is not only absurd, but also an insult to the victims of the tragedy. The victims are really, provably gone; they are not safely hidden away somewhere until the Sandy Hook shooting has served its ultimate goal of taking away America's guns. The bullet holes are there. The children and adults are dead. Toxic conspiracies, however, will live on."

I must add.......those EMT's interviewed are pretty questionable.As EMT's we always want to hold it together,but in my 14 years as a firefighter and 10 years as an EMT,I dont think I ever worked with anyone who did'nt cry tears with the loss of a child in any manner.And yes crisis intervention teams NOT actors,are always available to us.But they cant erase the tears.

I think honestly that since the government has went out of their way, SPECIALLY since Obama got into office, to hide everything from the American people. I honestly don't doubt anymore that he plans all these things. Hes capable of murdering kids in an elementary school if hes capable of letting his drones kill children in other countries for his entertainment.

I'm not interested in name calling I am interested in a simple answer to a simple question . Is there information or testimony from those 3 survived shooting victims that were hospitalized at Danbury?

Avatar
@ Deanna

There was only one survivor. Three victims were transported to the hospital. Two of them were children who died shortly after arriving at the hospital.

@ Kara

You missed another wounded person, and 12 kids who escaped from the classrooms. But all of us smart 'uns know that they are paid 6-year old government agents! And a teacher with the kid she pulled out of the hall. And the woman hiding in the office. And about 450 other people in the school. Must have cost the government quite a lot to pull off this massive hoax! Right, brain trust?

Avatar

It just seemed to me that the early reporting on Sandy Hook was so wrong that when you listened to a later broadcast of the news it was changed. And it seemed everything was confused. Had there been less speculation in the beginning maybe fewer would be thinking we still don't know the whole truth.

It does a disservice to society to give credence to a few crazy folks by even asking such a ludicrous question. I think there are too many websites looking for 24/7 news that it has given a voice to a segment of society that are better suited to stay in their caves. Conspiracy theorists suffer from paranoia and mental illness.

@ Jim

its so sad to see people's rational brain end at the word conspiracy theory. It only means that you think someone meant to do ill and planned it. You retards. If you believe the government and the media, you are a conspiracy theorist. if you believe the government lies to you, you are also a conspiracy theorist. Plain and simple. I would say "life must be hard for you" but ignorance is bliss. You don't even know what conspiracy theory MEANS. don't use words you don't understand. PLEASE

Thank you, Jim. Yes, it really points out the full spectrum of social and mental health in America. Hard to believe these people can even function.
