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?

The two wounded seem to want this crazy thing called privacy. With all the love floating around in the hoaxer crowd, I don't know why they don't come out.

I agree. The nation is actually run by first graders who had to fake their deaths in order to go behind the curtain to manage our lives. Yuck yuck. Are you even capable of wiping your own bottom? Think about it - everyone uses toilet paper. I would be the perfect place to put fluoride!

"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?" I think, in this case, there is reason to doubt the official story. There are so many things that don't add up and an awful lot of coincidences. I don't know what the real picture is, but "reasonable doubt" is sufficient to start questioning all aspects of the official story. As outlandish as some of the theories are that are circulating, that doesn't make them impossible, and unless the police come forward and clear up the questions being asked, "reasonable doubt" remains. So, I'm keeping an open mind on this one, since the whole thing seems awfully fishy.

I will add one thing that I personally have discovered. When all that stuff about The Dark Knight Rises promo map of Gotham City came out, (which map was released exactly 1 year earlier than the massacre, on December 15, 2011,) about the island on the map having been re-titled "Sandy Hook" and also that the stadium circled on the map and the freeway lined up with the Google Maps map of the Sandy Hook school and freeway, when I looked into that, I found was able to confirm that, but then also made the discovery that the outline of Newtown, CT and the outline of the Sandy Hook island on the Batman map are more or less the same shape. I took the Newtown map, turned it 90 degrees and flipped it horizontally, so that the outline was facing the same way as the island then went, "WTF?"

That's brilliant, Sherlock! And I just did my own investigation. You know what I found? Sandy Hook, NJ is an island just south of the Manhattan area! I'll bet Gotham is supposed to be New York City! Now it all makes sense! Wait, it actually does. Sorry.

No recommendations have been made to alter anyone's rights to "bear arms" which is the second ammendment. There is NO qualification in the 2nd ammendment which stipulates what kind of arms you can bear, or how long you need to wait for them, or how many bullets can be in the clip. The founding fathers were referring to muskets - if you want to be literal, that's what you could use and be "true to the constitution". Also, the Constitution also allowed slavery. Should we not have altered that?

@ BLC

It refered to muskets because that the only type of gun they had back then.

@ me

What was used before muskets???I'm sure our founding fathers knew that we would grow in population and guns and other weapons would be improved in the future.Thats why a specific arms was not mentioned.The second amendment was written for all people to protect themselves when our government cant or wont protect us.Our protection against those who wish to do us harm!!

We should all move to michigan were miniguns and RPG's are legal in your on home. Tell Adam Lanza to shoot up a school where everyone is well protected and retarded weirdos can't shoot up a whole school. Oh, I forgot, the coward shot himself. There is no conspiracy about this ordeal, mabye just a slight distortion of facts. Trust me, I go to a school in Illinois and have a friend who was in the classroom where the attempted shooting at Normal West High took place, and her story is way different and far more serious than the medias. We are dealing with minimalazation here.

I just find it odd there's so many holes in this story. From day 1 i found this kinda fishy. Isn't it odd the whole 2nd and 3rd shooters thing are NEVER discussed anymore. Whatever happened to them? Comparing this to the VT massacre, there NO holes in that story. Its pretty black and white. How come theres sooooo many holes in this story? Everyone knew Sung and knew he was disturbed. How come theres no story on Adam or stories from people who knew him?

I heard the same thing jack said in regards to the other 2 men.Relatives of Adams say he was put on meds when he was 10.He dropped out of high school and earned his GEDWent to college at 16 and had a GPA of about..of I think it was 3.45,may have been a little higher.He was a computer whizhe was actually a genius.
The media keeps talking about him showing up with a briefcase and being a loner.Like a briefcase automatically makes a peson wierd.He had a form of autism.Thats about all I've heard from news reports.

Avatar
@ Greg

Greg-O, Adam was known in the high school as briefcase boy. He would hug the walls to avoid touching people. There, you have the story. Anout the 2nd and 3rd shooter, you probably mean the two mean who were brought out in handcuffs. One was the custodian, another a dad in a meeting. Until they cleared them, they were suspects. The custodian was actually the hero who ran down the hall yelling and locking doors. Did I close any holes, or do you just want to make up more?

@ Jack

Not two men taken out of the school, the people up in the woods behind the school that the police were chasing. It was on helicopter video.

Avatar
@ Jack

Not saying I agree with the hoax thing, but if one was the janitor and the other a dad, why were they running from the cops into the woods?

Avatar
@ hello

Because they weren't running in the woods. The two men were taken from the building - a dad and a janitor. The man stopped in the woods was a dad running from his house after he heard shooting at hi school. And then he sees armed men running at him. What would you do? Sorry, no aliens.

Exactly!Does'nt make any sense to me either.

This "training" is all too convenient ... It's the one legit thing the conspiracy has going for it ... http://www.ct.gov/demhs/ical/c...

It just seems that some people are mocking this national tragedy. They have no concern and respect for the victims and their families. Hopefully, those people get what is coming to them eventually.

A training on how to deal with children during a tragedy? Oh my god, must be a government plot...unless...oh, yeah, I forgot....Hurricane Sandy.....Hurricane Katrina...the theater shooting...Columbine.....Virginia Tech.....seems that these all had children that were affected and were tragedies.....now I'm no rocket scientist, but it does seem to me that having a training on how to deal with children during tragedies seems like a good idea...and has anyone bothered to see if that was the first time they had that training, or if it was an ongoing thing, in different cities and towns around the country at different times and on different days? Seems like everyone is so satisfied that this was a one-time thing, only being done on the day of Sandy Hook...try looking up the info, not the first time that training had been done somewhere.......coincidence, sorry.

Demanding to know the truth is not a mockery. Questioning holes in a story no matter who it involves is our right as Americans. It seems to me that you probably bought the whole 9/11 lie as well since that is what you were told.

After viewing the video, I agree it raises several questions. Allowing it to soak in for a few days this is what I have decided. I am not sure of all the facts but I have to have some piece of mind that my country would not do such a thing, with that said I am disgusted that President Obama would use the children of Sandy Hook to promote his gun laws. Children do not understand and do not have the capacity to understand civil rights, amendments and pros/cons of stricter gun laws. At last the video should make all of us question what we see in video on the news or anyplace else. Are we given the the truth or what others want us to believe is true.

Whether it happened or not, Obama WILL use this as an excuse to further his socialist, gun-control agenda. Wait and see.

@ F*** Obama

Obama has since signed into effect 23 more executive orders regarding gun control

So many thoughts come to my mind after seeing this.
I am most disturbed by the fixed appearance and poised demeanors of the grieving parents. What does this all lead up to is the quesiton at hand?

You were absolutely right when you said "I am most disturbed." Mental health is a serious problem.
