Jesse Ventura’s Comments On Newtown Shooting Disinformation
| WTF News |
The Sandy Hook shooting has had international repercussions, not just feeding the raging gun control debate, but also the increasingly controversial amount of disinformation around the independent media analysis of the Newtown shooting. The fishy circumstances of the case has fed a loud debate over “conspiracy theories” and that has been linked inexorably to the pro-2nd amendment side.
Since the infamous Alex Jones-Piers Morgan interview, WTF News noted the possibility for independent media and truth seekers to be lumped together as crazy by spreading false info.
Today on his facebook page, former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura cautioned people on the analyses put forth, noting that there are many pieces of disinformation being touted as facts for alternate theories.
I don’t see enough evidence to think Sandy Hook was a false flag operation. This is more of a tragic event turned into political opportunity than it is a staged event. Was there investigative bungling and the sensationalist media reporting unverified stories? Yes. Was there confusion and were facts lost and gained in that confusion? Yes. Are there people, even witnesses, looking for their 30 seconds in the spotlight? Yes. Are there individuals and institutions using and shaping this event for their own political agendas? Yes, and we must keep a very watchful eye on those institutions to keep them from twisting the facts of this event. Sadly, everything I mentioned above can, when taken out of context, make one think manipulation is afoot. Most chaotic events can come across that way. In examining the event, I don’t see government hands at work mainly because they would have covered their tracks better. We can’t expect them to pull off elaborately planned hoaxes while at the same time leaving behind so many easy “smoking guns” for us to find. It took years for independent investigators to uncover JFK. It took years for us to begin scratching out the truth about 9/11. Those of us who study real history, not state sanctioned history, can very easily become just as close minded and biased for conspiracy as those who stand in our way and refuse to accept the truth about our government and the people running it. It’s very easy to fall into that trap, especially when knowing how much of our history and world events are not what they appear to be. So please, do not immediately jump up and yell “Fire!” just because someone makes a youtube video. Research, research, research. You only hurt our cause by promoting false conspiracies and crackpot agendas. Much like the Birther conspiracy, I am starting to think that a lot of the so called “evidence” of conspiracy coming out about Sandy Hook is designed and fabricated to make us “conspiracy theorists”, us truth seekers, look foolish. Why? So that when good people argue against the destruction of our Second Amendment they can easily be painted with the “crackpot” brush.
There are many inconsistencies in the “official” story but as independent media, we can not afford mistakes. As the article “How to Write More Effectively for Liberty” noted, we must be diligent about fact checking before passing on info.
