I said this feels like a "false flag" operation. The intentions that the media is being fed seems more than suspicious. If you believe the official line fine. I just don't this time. Seems Too convenient.

BUT the events are awful convenient. We need a new distraction and ohh look a mass shooting and it's aginst the political party that is under security. Shoot now it's being used to ask our side to stop pushing the "destructive partisan narrative". Give them the benefit of the dought if you want to fine not me, not this time. BTW the pool shows I am not alone.

Whatever the reality that this was the result of, it was still a long way to travel whether or not he was there for "revenge" against a system, to fulfill a political manifesto - or to fulfill a contract.

They're in no mood to help the Republicans at the moment, and so it would be a stretch to think they'd take part in any conspiracy.

Jones, Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh, Savage, and so on and so forth - all they do is spew violent rhetoric and bullshit with no base claim in reality. I say we throw it back in their faces.

Many people need to create imaginative scenarios to better validate their own biases and narratives. Alex Jones has done this numerous times, so I imagine you're in a large crowd of like-company, regardless of how we may feel.

A lot of people couldn't believe a loser like Oswald could take down a great man like Kennedy so they had to create conspiracy theories to give it larger meaning.

I don't think advertising "it's just my opinion" makes it any more valid than saying "2+2=fish is just my opinion."

And let's not confuse crazy with merely irrational.

it would not surprise me if it was set up. I say that because of the attack on Sweden that did not exist when trump announced it and a few days later happened. It was like he accidentally announced it before he was supposed to because he knew the plan to attack existed or had something to do with it.
