He staged illegal sales of semi-auto rifles to drug cartels, is it so hard to imagine that they would look for a nutbag and give him some hardware and some ideas? I don’t think that’s what happened, but as conspiracy theories go, that one would be pretty easy to pull off.
It does seem odd that these types crawl out of the woodwork at just the right time when “gun control” is being promoted. I don’t think that .gov is smart enough to pull off some kind of “mind control” and keep it secret, but something is setting these people off. I blame the lamestream media and their blood dance for encouraging the nut cases.
What changes is how much news coverage they get. Not suprisingly, when there is an existing debate about gun control going on, they tends to get a lot more news focus than when there’s no larger narrative to tie into.
Gell-Man Amnesia effect: what do you expect from a rock-star?
In the 80′s they were lacing the weed with “green” or PCP – it was ugly and delirious and only the guys who liked downers would do it. Stay away from them and you’d be ok. I made a mistake one time…
Most everything happens by conspiracy unless it is purposed and planned by one person acting alone–which is, by the way, the official version on ALL U.S. political assassinations, whether attempted or successful. But we never hear discounting “the lone nut” theories.
You’ve just got to use respectable, acceptable language like saying you’re “connecting the dots” re: motivations to prevent you from being branded as a “conspiracy theorist”.
Gosh John Smith, that would’ve been a “far-fetched” “conspiracy theory” in 2008 and probably even early on in the Obama Administration, when Sec of St Clinton and Atty Gen Holder were blaming the 2nd Amendment rights of Americans for the “gun violence” in Mexico.
“Fast and Furious” has killed a lot more people than the shooting in Aurora, CO, which has benefitted the anti-gun, citizen disarmament agenda even more and helped to obfuscate public scrutiny from it.
Presidents are front men and are probably often clueless to what goes is done byestablished and renegade parts of the government. James Holmes was involved in a neuro science program which receives DoD funding and a cursory search of the long time CIA MK ultra program demonstrates that the possibility of using a programmed “lone nut” to prmote an agenda is not so far fetched:
