I hate this crap, so they're gonna risk blowing the cover of agents in a real town, real school, etc?

Midsentence...

Oh, I guess the conspiracy theory involves the shooter being an "agent", that's been the trend recently because of the plausible deniability factor, more room to wiggle around in than the "STAGED, crisis actors" scenario.

I'm still in the ignore Infowars camp, on the sidelines, not ignoring the threat.

It so makes me feel better that our Buddy Alex is probably the Texan mentioned
In the Recent Mueller Inditements.
Hope Mueller has a surprise for him.

It is one of the coping strategies some Americans have developed so they can deal with the mass shootings. Pretend they did not happen.

That would be lovely - especially if they put him and all his B-Buddies under the jail.

I have spoken to him and placed him on leave until we determine an appropriate course of action.
Subsequently fired, but why did he have to "determine" the obvious. Moron.

ETA: Oh, look. Same guy, apparently.

DRAIN THE SWAMP!

ETAA: More. Note the "Donald Trump Jr liked this" tweet.

When the facts clash with ideology, rather than alter their ideology, they try to alter the facts. Donny does this too with his "fake noos" malarkey, and he's no good at it either.

Got a link? I'm aware of Donnie Jr. doing that but not the Dear Leader himself.
