Angry Snakeoil 101

How to exploit a tragedy. Las Vegas murder style.

First off give away, for free, something everyone wants. Does not have to work or be real. Say a video "providing bogus proof" of a second shooter.

Then make yourself the hero of the common man, Rant and rave against the FBI, and or mistrusted authority figures for not believing your "bogus proof".

Get the word via alt-media, hero status for being so brave.

Sell sell sell. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IV9W3l7yEM&t=634s

excuse me while I vomit.

The guy is an unmitigated prick.

I've run in to his stuff before. He knows less about what he's talking about than what my cat knows about geometry.

The LV shooting was a false flag operation etc.

This an excellent description of the Health Ranger, but is also very accurate for Alex Jones, who has been peddling the phony health supplements very heavily recently.
And I am sure there are others....

Mike Adams, He did a video on an "audio analysis" of the LV shooting which was pure bs. And has become the darling of the second shooter set. Hi is now posting heavily advertised videos of the event on you tube. I would prefer people do not click to help him out but want people to get as pissed at this as I am.

CT nuttery on cluster homicides is a growing industry with many practitioners and followers.

Every time there's an incident, within 48 hours I get a deluge of email from family and friends wanting to know if this or that CT factiod could possibly be true.

So far, no, and this jackass is a prime source of half-assed "facts."

It appears that for quite some years now, all terrorist attacks have ceased and each and every one is now faked.

And death has taken a holiday - many of the nutters assert the victims are fake as well. Some ******* stalked one of the Sandy Hook parents and lost their job behind it.

I wish it would happen more often. I wouldn't want someone that nutty working for me.

One of these days one of these nuts will kill someone,(hopefully themselfs if it's got to happen) just to prove it can't be done.

I still cannot wrap my head around it, I just tell myself that it is a sick joke and move on.

The ALT-media is really messing up the waters in this one. They spawn memes of stupid, like in the video I linked, he talks about the small number of "brass cartridges" about 300, seen in the picture, of the open window, in the shooters room. And goes on about how stupid people are, for not knowing there is a second shooter. However the picture shows only a small portion of a crime scene, not to mention does not show the other broken window in a different room. Suddenly a whole crop of videos spring up asking the same thing.

Like their brothers and sisters who love trumpf and drink his anti-Hillary urination, the alt-media eats and drinks solid and liquid waste from the most foul of sources. Because they love it!!!!
