We knew it was bound to happen. At some point, some conspiracy theory choad was going to find a way to proclaim that President Barack Obama was behind the Dark Knight theater shooting in Colorado. And that choad is World Net Daily columnist Vox Day.
No doubt many Americans believe James Holmes acted alone in shooting up the Denver theater because they were told that was the case, despite at least one witness report that someone else appears to have been involved. While it is a remote possibility that Holmes was the individual seen opening the emergency exit prior to the entrance of the gunman, the fact that he has his hair dyed bright red tends to preclude that possibility as the witness would be expected to have remembered such an unusual attribute. And even if the man taking the phone call was Holmes, that would raise the question of who called him just prior to the attack.
Holmes is only the latest in a series of “lone gunmen” who are possessed of seemingly supernatural talents, such as the ability to defy the laws of physics or to be in two places at the same time. The magic bullet of Lee Harvey Oswald, the super-explosive power of Timothy McVeigh’s fertilizer bomb, the four living Saudis who are confirmed to have survived their reported participation in the 9/11 crashes and the remarkable incendiary talents of Martin van der Lubbe are all similar examples of the way in which the official story put forth by the government simply doesn’t withstand the test of science and reason.
According to Day, the Dark Knight shooting has all the signs of a government hit designed to increase the public outcry for more gun control. But Day believes that Obama's plans haven't quite worked out the way he had hoped. Day writes:
And in the absence of any crisis it could utilize — for as Rahm Emanuel has said, “You don’t ever want a crisis to go to waste” — it appears the administration may have found one. Unfortunately, with an administration that has openly claimed a legal right to assassinate Americans without trial and is known to have engaged in a similar, but much larger false flag operation in “Operation Fast and Furious,” you cannot rule out the possibility that this incident is more than a lucky break for the government. Potential echoes of “Fast and Furious” can be seen in Holmes’ purchase of the weaponry utilized; where did an unemployed graduate school dropout find the money to obtain a rifle that costs around $1,250 and an estimated $1,500 in ammunition? One can’t help but ask such questions in times like these.
If the shootings were a false-flag operation, the Obama administration appears to have badly misread the American people again. Instead of seeing it as an example of the need for more gun control, most Americans have interpreted it as a powerful indictment of gun-free zones and an example of the need for further liberalization of carry laws.
Now, Day doesn't offer any actual proof, something that a self-professed member of Mensa should, you know, know to do, but he proclaims that one day — perhaps sooner than later — indisputable proof just might emerge, writing:
Were the Denver shootings a false flag operation? It will probably be years before anyone can say decisively one way or the other. But if Holmes commits suicide or otherwise dies in custody, that will be a strong indication that he is one more in a long and suspicious series of lone gunmen.
That may be, but there's no doubt that Vox Day is one more in a long and suspicious series of conspiracy theorists who will gladly abandon all reason to advance a partisan agenda and peddle it to a notably gullible audience.
