Anderson Cooper Targets Sandy Hook Skeptic for Exercising 1st Amendment, Conflates Sandy Hook Skeptics with 9/11 TruthSubmitted by Sue4theBillofrights on Sun, 01/13/2013 - 23:04
Now even suggesting that CNN Anderson Cooper's libel could cause harm to him and his family, Florida professor James Tracy has about an airtight a case for a major lawsuit against CNN as ever I've seen. In his attempted hit job against all questioners of official stories, deemed "conspiracy theorists" by Cooper, he accuses Tracy, on the air, of saying that Sandy Hook may "never have happened," and that all parents' grief was staged.
Cooper tells his audience that Tracy maintains that "he is not convinced that the parents of the children who were killed are who they say they are." There is one problem. Tracy never said that. Cooper does splice in images of websites which do say this. But they have nothing to do with James Tracy. The segues which imply the association are crafty, swift, and thoroughly intellectually dishonest.
Tracy's full statement, which he repeats often, is that "one is left to inquire whether Sandy Hook ever took place, at least in the way law enforcement and the nation's news media described."
What's this? If you don't swallow the entire official story you are heartless? You have no soul like a Zombie? The clear conditional clause is ignored by Anderson, although he cannot use the defense that he was not aware of it, because he opens the segment with it. Anderson refers to questioners of official stories in the vilest terms, "sickening," "disgusting," "despicable."
In an interview earlier this month, Tracy said "while it appears that people lost their lives" at Sandy Hook Elementary on Dec. 14, he is not ready to buy that it was a lone gunman. Tracy reiterated, something a duly diligent Cooper should have been aware of, "Something most likely took place...One is left with the impression that a real tragedy took place."
Also questioning the "lone wolf" narrative is Fox News broadcast journalist Ben Swann, who is calling for the release of the outside video to the school where Lanza entered the building. Cooper's broadcast reeks of the desperation of an establishment losing control.
Cooper then takes Tracy's research on the existence of trained "crisis actors" to build on the accusation, even though he was clearly referring to the possible hijack of a crime scene by shills such as the one suspected of being planted at 9/11, the man who minutes after the attack, with no identification or qualifications whatsoever, put the first spin on the Twin Towers' destruction by saying to Fox News "I witnessed both towers collapse, one first then the second. Mostly due to structural failure because the fire was just too intense."
Cooper then goes on to conflate Sandy Hook skeptics with the 9/11 Truth movement, flashing a picture of Dr. David Ray Griffin on the screen as an example of the "type" who is "highly intelligent" yet who is unable to accept the idea of "random evil." Cooper brings on a pop psychologist to assert that "truthers" need to believe that evil comes from one source, a remarkably silly proposition.
Straight from Chairman Mao. First demonize the intellectuals, anyone who wears glasses, who looks like they can think. Cooper spits out the word "this professor."
"This is what he looks like. James Tracy is his name" says Cooper ominously as he all but places a private US citizen on a hit list for exercising his First Amendment rights. For something he wrote on a blog. Cooper says he is "exposing" Tracy.
As for his disdain for "conspiracy theories, Cooper never once mentions that the official position of the United States on the JFK assassination, embodied in the House Select Committe on Assassinations in the late 70's, concludes that the Warren Commission was wrong, that there were at least four shots fired, that at least one shot probably came from the grassy knoll, and that it was most likely a conspiracy. Cooper never quotes the words of US Navy Admiral Thomas Moorer, regarding the USS Liberty, that "In attacking the USS Liberty, Israel committed acts of murder against U.S. servicemen and an act of war against the United States." Moorer, who died in 2007, was a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Cooper did invite Prof. Tracy on-air to defend his views, but Tracy declined. From now on be prepared to go on national television to answer "When did you stop beating your wife?"
