Another shooting. Another opportunity to lure the sheeple into the rabbit hole.
Just three days after the Umpqua Community College shooting in Oregon, there are over 100,000 videos claiming it was a hoax, some posted the day of the shooting, as the hoaxers try to make the viral video on the topic, awaken more sheeple to the hoax, and at the same time earn their own fame in the hoaxer community. Keep in mind, the Roseburg police are still investigating. But those clever hoaxers have figured it all out, without even leaving their house!
Here is some of the propaganda that the hoaxers are spreading this time. If it sounds familiar, it is. They simply recycle the same list of “anomalies” that they highlight each and every time:
Inaccuracies in early reporting
Inaccuracies in the early reporting of mass shootings will happen. Every. Single. Time. Reporters are trying to get the scoop and piece together the story from bits and pieces leaking out from shaken witnesses and other non-official sources. When the dust settles, there will be a clearer picture of what occurred. Understanding that reporters on the scene don’t have the full story yet, will you choose to get your news from you-tubers?
Suspicious Witness Statements
Invariably, witnesses say things like “I thought it was a drill,” or “I heard banging.” Does that mean it was a drill? Does that mean the drill organizers “banged” to simulate the sound of gunfire? No. Witnesses are describing what they experienced in the moment.
These hoaxers simply have poor comprehension skills. If I told you that, “I thought I broke my leg when I fell,” would you walk away thinking I actually broke my leg? No. And,have you ever heard a baby crying outside your door, only to discover it’s the neighbor’s cat? Of course, you have. Listen to the witnesses and not the voice overs telling you what the witness means.
The hoaxers have to discredit witness accounts and the only way they can do that is to apply the “crisis actor” label to them. It could be that the witness doesn’t appear sad or shaken enough. Or, stalkers may uncover that the witness has a background in theater or the arts. Or, it could be the witness bears a slight resemblance to a celebrity, or that the witness is a young woman with long dark hair, which is the only characteristic she needs to look like another young, brunette witness from another shooting. Having an opinion that someone isn’t sad enough or that someone looks like someone else, isn’t proof, and it doesn’t make the “crisis actor” claim factual. In the nearly three years that I’ve been following these hoaxers, not once have they been able to present a single shred of evidence to support the crisis actor claim– you know, like a signed contract or a cancelled paycheck from Crisis Actors USA, something along those lines. But they are big on opinions.
If you were involved in a mass shooting, can you imagine any of your friends and family coming forward to share your story on the news? I bet you can. I know exactly who it would be in my family. My brother is calm and cool-headed in times of crisis, and would be comfortable talking in front of the camera. Another likely candidate is my sister, who has strong political opinions and tight control of her emotions (she’s confessed to me that if she needs to cry, she does it in the shower). And guess what? My brother has an acting background and my sister looks a bit like Jamie Lee Curtis.
After a mass shooting event, the gun control debate rears its ugly head. Yes, even Obama comes out to speak on it. Now, you may not be aware of this, but the gun control debate is pretty much on-going, whether there is a shooting or not. Obama has been pretty consistent in his position on gun control. Of course, politicians are going to leverage the national attention the issue is getting. That’s kind of what politicians do. And that’s also exactly what the hoaxer video makers are doing – rushing to put out their you-tube propaganda to promote their political agenda. They want to rile you up to keep you from opposing gun restrictions.
Every American has an opinion on the gun control issue. So when a mass shooting happens, who do you expect to step forward? A father urging support for gun control to prevent another family from suffering a similar loss? Or a father urging us to keep the status quo in the name of 2nd amendment rights?
The hoaxers will tell you there is always a “drill” going on shortly before one of these events. But what they don’t tell you, is that they have a very loose definition of the word “drill.” In the Sandy Hook incident, the drill was a classroom lecture. In Roseburg,the “drill” occurred during a in-session faculty meeting. The local Roseburg paper, NRToday describes this drill:
In fact, the school held a brief meeting to cover emergency situations just a week prior, on Sept. 21, in the school’s Jacoby Auditorium. At about 3 p.m., officials from the school’s security conducted a verbal walk-through, building-by-building, of the safe places within the campus’s respective buildings.
During the presentation, security officials told staff that they would be alerted of emergency situations on their computer. Susan Rochester, the department chair for fine and performing arts at the school, asked how teachers who don’t sit in front of their work stations expected to be notified.
Probably not what you were thinking the hoaxers meant by a drill.
Yeah, it’s weird how the police haven’t released pictures of the dead bodies in the classrooms where the shootings occurred. You know, it’s pretty much standard procedure to show the gruesome images of a mass casualty. Doesn’t your local paper show blood and dead bodies every time there is a local murder or fatal car accident? Of course, they don’t. Why do you expect to see that here? And if you say “because Columbine,” I hope you know that the Columbine photos were never officially released, but leaked sometime after the event.
But regardless, there is blood. There just isn’t enough to satisfy hoaxers. There is a photo of a victim on a stretcher. One video speculates the victim is one of the deceased because there is a sheet over his face, although I suspect he is a living victim because he is not in a body bag. The bed clothes have what appears to blood. It’s just not enough. These hoaxers have no idea of the victim’s identity or the extent or location of wounds, and if they did, I highly doubt they are medical professionals who could share an informed medical opinion, yet they are able to make a determination of how much blood should be present on the gurney.
Now, think about. If the above list of things the hoaxers like to call “anomalies” occurs at every mass shooting, are they really anomalies?
Please think for yourself before you share these videos and add to the pain of the UCC victims and the Roseburg community.
