First of course we had Wayne Lapierre completely illogical suggestion that we "Don't Need No Stinking Gun Control" we need more Guns period, arguing that the only thing that stops people with guns - is more people with guns.
That sentiment was of course echoed in somewhat more reasonable sounding terms by the King of Loudmouth Chickenhawk Draft Dodging Blowhards - Ted Nugent - with his Open Letter to Joe Biden..
Then you had the mouthy frothy performance of Alex Jones on Piers Morgan.
Even after all that, nothing - but nothing - could prepare you for the claim by this Floria Professor who claims that "Sandy Hook Might Not Even Happened". At least not exactly as the media claims - because the Obama Administration WANTED something like this to happen so they could push their Anti-Gun Agenda".
Their Paranoia and then there's a Full On Psychotic Snap.
A few days ago Troubadour managed to get some on the right all a flutter with the suggestion that Conservatives are becoming - in aggregrate - Sociopathic.
Well, I think it's not just in aggregate. I think you can find very specific individuals who fit that profile quite exactly. People like this guy:
Writing on his Memory Hole blog last month, Professor James Tracy asserted that it was “not unreasonable to suggest the Obama administration [had] complicity or direct oversight of an incident that has in very short order sparked a national debate” on gun control.Yeah because a lack of seeing the bodies of dead 5-year-olds must obviously lead you to think that President Barack Obama would exploit a bloody national tragedy - by not exploiting it - to implement a draconian, repressive national policy that's fits his own agenda of neo-totalitarianism? Who the Frack do you think he is George W. Bush?
“While it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place—at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nation’s news media have described,” he declared, noting that no surveillance video of photos of bodies had been released by authorities.
“Moreover, to suggest that [President Barack] Obama is not capable of deploying such techniques to achieve political ends is to similarly place ones faith in image and interpretation above substance and established fact, the exact inclination that in sum has brought America to such an impasse.”
Raw Story (http://s.tt/...)
But then what else would expect from someone who not only doubts that Oswald alone killed Kennedy - ok, well who doesn't? - but also doubts the official story of the Oklahoma City Bombing, 9-11 and the last years Aurora Shooting?
Even this guys is rational enough to know when to back-peddle his position.
“In terms of saying that Sandy Hook — the Newtown massacre — did not take place, is really an oversimplification of what I actually said,” he explained. “I said that I think that there may very well be elements of that event that are synthetic to some degree, that are somewhat contrived. I think that, overall, the media really did drop the ball. I don’t think that they got to the bottom of some of the things that may have taken place there.”Uh huh, 20 Children were murdered. That happened, glad you can admit it - surveillance footage of the bodies or not - but to suggest that Federal Authorities manipulated the media in some way to heighten the outrage in response to this even - but they didn't do it with Aurora, and they didn't do it with Tuscon and they didn't do it with any other of massive shootings that have taken place over the last 5 years?
As for the deaths of 20 elementary children, the professor said, “I think that most likely that took place.”
Sometimes you can't believe where people will go- but they do.
