Unable to accept the fact that the brutal, cowardly mass murder in Las Vegas this morning was perpetrated by a 64-year old white man, the usual right wing bozos are claiming the massacre is a “false flag” designed to set up the premise to “take away our guns.”
According to Raw Story, David Knight, host of a morning program on Alex Jones’ Infowars channel, suggested on Monday that the massacre in Las Vegas could be a false flag operation designed to strip Second Amendment gun rights from Americans.
“As we look at the 100 year anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution and as we talk about last week,” Knight said. “Talking about multiple groups saying, ‘It’s coming Nov. 4. We have a new civil war that is coming to overthrow the government.’ Talking about how these Antifa communists are training with weapons, etc. So, there was a lot of stuff that was on the horizon.”
But the host said that he suspected legislation in Congress was the true motive behind the massacre.
“We have to wake up to what is happening here because 100 years after the Bolshevik Revolution, now we’re going to have a bull crap revolution that is going to be happening here,” he continued. “It is the crap that is being fed to us by these Marxists. And this is something that you have to understand as we see this.”
Even before the full scope of the horror was known, alt-right chat boards were proclaiming the slaughter as the work of “Muslim Extremists” and/or “Antifa.”
These are the same people who declared the murder of school children at Sandy Hook as a false flag, and proclaimed that the devastating injuries and deaths incurred at the Boston Marathon Bombing were the work of “actors” that were hired by George Soros to “pretend” they were killed or suffered traumatic amputation.
We have yet to learn what motivated Stephen C. Paddock of Mesquite, NV, to mow down over 500 innocent partiers at a country music festival with a fully-automatic weapon, killing at least 58 people who were guilty of nothing other than enjoying themselves on an early fall evening, or why he chose that particular venue to rain death and mayhem from his armory/32nd floor hotel room.
However, these alt-right knuckleheads don’t need to know the facts before filling the air with their hate spew.
