Well, that didn’t take long.
Just a couple of days after the tragic on-air shooting of reporter Alison Parker and her cameraman, Adam Ward, the right wing nut jobs have already spun a conspiracy theory which claims the entire thing was a hoax perpetuated so the government can justify taking guns from everyone.
Who is behind this hoax? Well, it could be the Illuminati. Then again, it might be the Freemasons. Or, perhaps, just perhaps, it was all cooked up by Homeland Security, directed by Satan and orchestrated by CBS News.
At this point I feel the need to say, WTF?!
WDBJ Trutherism has arrived, and all you have to do is take a look at some of the crap floating around online to see how deranged this band of “truthers” is.
They are even accusing WDBJ, the national media, local law enforcement , the FBI, and the families and friends of the victims of being part of this vast left wing conspiracy. Same thing that happened in Sandy Hook, they claim.
Take a look at these tweets:
No need for the families and friends of Ms. Parker and Mr. Ward to mourn or hold memorial services. They’re still alive, according to these insensitive asshats on the far right.
And to top it all off, there are even videos on YouTube which purport to show how the hoax was carried out and how it’s all the beginning of the end here in America. Grab the kids and head for the hills, Mabel! The FBI is gonna take away all our guns!
I just have one message for the loons on the right who want to deny the lives that were lost earlier this week: Karma can be a real son of a gun.
