Sandy Hook Truthers - the growing belief on the far right that sandy hook was a manufactured event whose purpose was to start the process of taking the patriot's guns. LOL, you can't make this stuff up.
Because of the work I do, I encounter this kind of talk a lot - lots of tinfoil farrightists are doing the grunt work in the internet industry. Sandy Hook Truth is growing in popularity.
Some florida professor has taken up the banner...http://memoryholeblog.com/2013/01/01/sandy-hook-the-illusion-of-tragedy/
"Additional facets of coverage and maneuvers suggesting the possibility of an at least a partially staged event include the choice of the Sandy Hook Fire and Rescue Company’s headquarters as an evacuation point for the school’s students. This is accompanied by a lack of photographic or video evidence of such a widespread evacuation, bizarre interview footage of idle and wandering families alongside an emotional man who just happens across a half dozen Sandy Hook first graders in his front lawn who apparently witnessed their teacher’s murder."
As an example of sandy hook truth rhetoric from the right - this hit my inbox today. (I am on a few right wing mailing lists so I can keep an eye on their crazy.) These rightwing lists sell their lists to political blackops orgs - this one calls itself voiceoffreedom. VoiceOfFreedom@Inter.net lol inter.net is a ISP based in south america.
"..They used a poster child for this to get everybody's sympathy and to get everybody's emotions up so that they could hopefully bring in a gun ban. They used a little poster child, a little blonde-haired blue-eyed six year old girl. She was the face, the poster child. She was supposedly killed along with the other 19 six year olds and seven year olds at Sandy Hook. Three days later Obama was there doing a photo op and she's sitting on his knee. She's supposed to be dead, used as a poster child, this little girl died - she's sitting on Obama's knee three days later. The same little girl.
And then they have her parents interviewed. It shows that they're all actors. It never really happened, because the guy that was supposedly her dad, is shown in the video where he's to the side and he's laughing and joking with other people and then he's called up in front of the camera. He's off to the left. Then he's called to the center, to the focus of the camera to be interviewed and to give his speech about Sandy Hook and about his daughter. And he goes from on the side from laughing and joking with everybody, he comes up to the center and ... he takes the joking, smiling face off and you can see him physically trying to force his face to look sad and then he starts talking about how his daughter's been killed. They're actors. There were no bodies. "

"Someone posted a photo of his house online. There have been phony Google+ and YouTube accounts created in his name, messages on white supremacist message boards ridiculing the “emotional Jewish guy,” and dozens of blog posts and videos “exposing” him as a fraud. One email purporting to be a business inquiry taunted: “How are all those little students doing? You know, the ones that showed up at your house after the ‘shooting’. What is the going rate for getting involved in a gov’t sponsored hoax anyway?”
