A ‘Sandy Hook conspiracy theory’ is spreading across certain areas of the US, which deems that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings on December 14 in Connecticut were a hoax committed by the Barack Obama Presidency to heighten public support for tighter gun control laws.
The Sandy Hook conspiracy theorists aka the Sandy Hook Truthers have labelled themselves Operation Terror, with many of the movement’s proponents having connections to the ‘9/11 Truthers’, who propagate that the 9/11 Islamist terrorist attacks on US soil were an ‘inside job’ of the then George W Bush Presidency. The ‘conspiracy of Sandy Hook’ or the Sandy Hook hoax theory appears to be based on fictitiousness and seems to be devoid of any basis.
The ‘Sandy Hook hoax’ theorists have asserted, in their blogs and websites, that a ‘smoking gun’ proves that the Connecticut elementary school shootings were bogus. The ‘smoking gun’ is a photograph of US President Barack Obama, in which he is backstage at a Newtown vigil two days after the Sandy Hook Elementary school shootings. In the photograph, Barack Obama has a young blonde girl on his lap.
The theorists, who claim that the Sandy Hook shootings were a hoax, have voiced that the blonde girl is the 6-year-old Emilie Parker, who was believed to be one of the 20 child victims of the Newtown elementary school massacre. The Sandy Hook Truthers, who have thundered that ‘Sandy Hook has been exposed’, say that Emilie Parker’s parents failed to adhere to the hoax due to their amateurishness.
A YouTube video on the ‘Sandy Hook hoax’ theory, which has garnered more than 260000 hits, voices that the blonde girl in the photo is Emilie Parker.
Opponents of the ‘Sandy Hook conspiracy’ theorists say that the blonde girl is Emilie Parker’s little sister. The ‘Sandy Hook hoax’ theorists also deem that Robbie Parker, Emilie Parker’s Dad, was faking his deep sadness when he melancholically addressed the media after Emilie was murdered at Sandy Hook.
69-year-old Gene Rosen, a pet-sitter, who provided sanctuary to six kids, who escaped the Newtown school in terror, is receiving harassing phone calls from some conspiracy theorists.
