First of all, my thoughts and prayers go out to the innocent in the San Bernardino shootings. And also to those in Savannah, Georgia.
Now, an observation.
Most of you know I believe in the Conspiracy Theory of History. That is, many times – but not all – other forces are at work to force political agendas in times of crisis. Think Rahm Emanuel. Again, not always.
But, it IS interesting that virtually every time a mass shooting occurs, The President jumps onto his tired bandwagon about pushing more gun control. Many times before the bodies are even cold.
Or all the facts are known.
And students of conspiratorial history are familiar with governmental interference with many things. Forcing disease upon the American Indians and Blacks. The Army giving LSD to soldiers in the 60’s. The FBI’s COINTELPRO (black bag) program. The NSA’s MKULTRA.
There appears to be evidence the convicted assassin of Robert Kennedy was ‘manipulated’ (chemically treated and hypnotized) into taking the actions he did. (Evidence that he was never behind Kennedy, aside!) D. A. Vince Bugliosi kept pushing to reopen the case, to no avail.
And President Nixon ordered ‘The Plumbers’ to beat the Secret Service to Arthur Bremer’s apartment, after he shot Governor Wallace. Hmmm.
I used to know a clinical psychologist, socially. I asked him about stuff I’d been reading about governmental mind control, chemical hypnosis and suggestion – the whole Manchurian Candidate meme. Thinking he would pooh-pooh all the claims as pseudoscientific claptrap.
Instead, he shocked me with this statement, “Oh, the Soviets have been doing that since the 40’s.” (!)
And did he think we haven’t?
It’s not a large leap to believe that this ‘science’ hasn’t progressed since the 40’s, and that government forces (and corporate ones?) have been using it to push agendas.
What a better way to force through more gun control on the innocent than to have more visible mass shootings?
And if someone could control when those shootings occurred?
Of course, this is all just supposition. I’m in no way suggesting this is actually happening.
And, it does appear there are enough goofballs out there with their own agenda (Islamic fundamental terrorism).
And some folks like to never let a crisis go to waste!
