Surprise, Surprise! Alex Jones Calls Las Vegas Shooting a False Flag Set Up By Obama

Published by

 

Well, that sure didn’t take long. Alex Jones, crazy right-wing conspiracy theorist and con artist, took to his radio show on Monday to claim that the Las Vegas shooting that took place on Sunday was a false flag operation to turn public sentiment against the so-called patriot movement. The alleged shooters, Jerad and Amanda Miller, were supporters of Cliven Bundy’s protest against the government, as well as other far-right, anti-government causes. Facebook posts by Jerad Miller recently hinted at this event, as he discussed ‘suicide by cop’ and pointed out that “there is no greater cause to die for than liberty.”

Alex Jones and his website, InfoWars, decided to fight back and throw out the conspiracy that the government set this whole thing up to demonize the patriot movement and justify investigations of certain militias and organizations as domestic terrorist groups. In an Infowars article

, Kurt Nimmo claimed that the shooters use of the Gadsden flag, a known symbol of the Tea Party and other anti-government supporters, to drape over the slain police officers’ bodies was a government setup. Essentially, he is claiming that either the Millers were government agents themselves, or that someone inserted the flag afterward so that it would be reported out by the media as a way to highlight the shooters’ political leanings.

Around the same time this article hit the web, Jones took to the radio and claimed that President Obama, with the help of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, inserted certain items in Jerad Miller’s Facebook profile to show that he was a supporter of patriot groups, liked many Tea Party figures and so on. On top of that, Jones painted himself the victim, as he said that Obama and Zuckerberg obviously did this to make Jones and his movement appear to be responsible for this tragedy. Of course, in the world that Jones lives in, the Millers were actually working for Obama and went on a sucide mission in order to help the government confiscate everyone’s guns and place the freedom fighters in FEMA re-education camps.

I wonder if Jones knew when he went on the air Monday that Jerad Miller actually wrote a post for the InfoWars site back in 2012? And if he knew that the post Miller wrote was about whether or not one should kill the police? Of course, if this was brought up to Jones, he’d just claim that Miller was a long-time operative for the Obama Administration that had been working on his cover for years. The great thing about being a conspiracy theorist is that you can continue to go down the rabbit hole as it never ends. Everything leads to something else that leads to another thing that points to a fork in the road.

No matter how much Jones complains about false flags or government operatives infiltrating patriot and sovereign organizations, the fact remains that gun fetishists who wrap themselves up in the 2nd Amendment have had a bad few weeks. We’ve seen mass shootings in Southern California, Seattle and now Las Vegas. At the same time, so-called ‘activists’ promoting open carry laws in Texas have done gun rights advocates a huge disservice by idiotically carrying assault rifles into restaurants and stores, scaring the bejesus out of normal citizens. Jones and his ilk can blame Obama and Eric Holder for trying to turn public opinion against guns and gun ownership. However, Jones and other right-wingers need to take a look at their audience, and realize that the crazies that they’ve courted have now come home to roost.
