Sandy Hook Revisited - Revisited AgainSubmitted by mungke on Fri, 12/20/2013 - 02:57
Note: the purpose of this thread is to have a serious discussion and if necessary, to investigate certain theories about this event. It is not for wanton speculation and for name calling.
There recently was a controversial post entitled Sandy Hook Revisited, which yours truly posted in regularly. You see, I am a skeptic and when one comes off with Batman theories and isn't kiddding about it, it all seems a bit farfetched.
But I don't just show up and debunk. I do review things. In the last few days I have lost over 2 hours to Sandy Hook conspiracy theories, including the entirety of the Sofia Smallstorm video. I'll use that video for a reference point because she is obviously an intelligent person and presents some kind of coherent idea, without reference to Batman whatsoever (jokette).
Most of the things in Ms. Smallstorm's video struck me as easily explainable or unimpressive. But there is the concept there, that the whole thing could be manufactured. Some of the kids singing, if those were supposedly kids that were shot in the event, were definitely still there and singing in the end zone of the Superbowl. Some of the other kids only had a bit of resemblance.
And then there is the idea that many of the persons had recently moved there, and since then have moved away or been foreclosed upon. There was no evidence at all of this, just reference to a rumor. (But this is where I start debunking the debunker - it is a potentially huge issue, and yet the person who put together this artful hour and a half video with editing and sound clips and all, didn't see fit to go to the county recorder's office and check into this? I am curious - has anyone ever?)
And the idea that no one actually died there...has anyone into this theory actually gone there and talked to people? I'd like to know.
Part of me wants to say the govt could never orchestrate that - too many people to silence, etc. But then again, I am reminded of the other things it has done in plain site, and the fact that it was able to organize and catalyze for whole countries to change governments (cough: Iran cough) even decades ago...and then I realize that random isolated gun crimes never used to be national front page news but NOW if a doofus shoots up his outhouse in the middle of nowhere, I see it on my nightly news.
so what I'd like, and hope for, is dialogue on the issue that is fact based - not woo-woo stuff involving movies from that past - but if you have to post that, please at least take the effort to explain that evidence and its significance.
Let's see if there is actually anything to this, eh?
