After two explosions went off at the finish line during Monday's Boston Marathon, the tin-foil hat crowd wasted no time in taking to the internet to conjecture, insinuate, and fabricate a myriad of "possibilities" about what happened, who was behind it, and the motives for carrying out the attack.
Naturally, Info Wars led the charge, throwing up anything and everything that could possibly be seized on by conspiracy nuts, including an eyewitness account from a university cross country coach who for some reason thought it was odd that, in the post-9/11 world, there were bomb-sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines at this major international event where tends of thousands of people gather.
Expect the nutjobs to seize on this account as proof positive that the authorities carried out this attack against their own people in order to justify an expansion of government power.
And, not long after the explosions, Alex Jones tweeted this:
That's right. Before anything of substance is known, Alex Jones wants you to know that this stinks to high heaven, so that he can come to the inevitable conclusion that the attack was perpetrated by the government — because apparently, every catastrophe is the work of the Illuminati in their effort to impose a New World Order.
Here's a sampling of comments from the site:
Marcus Walker says:
I saw on CNN where they said in a few days they will be able reassemble the bombs and get evidence what type of and where the bombs came from. Then while hearing these comments there was a scrolling banner across the bottom saying they were exploding unexploded devices in a safe manner. Hello would it be necessary to reassemble the bombs if they isolated the unexploded devices and very carefully disarmed them so that the fingerprints could be analyzed if there were any? Why do they want to explode their evidence first. Someone tell me that!
gotta love all the flags.
Get it? flags? false flags
Also conjures up images of the U.N.
It’s also a middle finger to the U.S., detonating the bombs in the midst of a bunch of foreign flags
Be careful what you write that can be lead back to you. Who do you think will be the first rounded up? Soon any negative comment toward Obama and his administration will be considered a threat or a treasonous act against OUR country. Pick up a history book… These tactics have been used before
i saw this coming months ago, if anyone “likes” the wall street journal on facebook and reads the comments, you would have seen comments like this “I am ::insert name:: and I do not support the US government involvement with propping up the muslum brotherhood in our nation of Saudi Arabia.” this was uniform constantly like spam on the comments section of the WSJ for weeks by different people. Now the man behind the curtain is Saudi Arabian? you don’t say…. I doubt many SA even have computers, let alone go on Facebook to comment on an american newspaper to show their displeasure to Americans who have absolutely no control over what our government does. FALSE FLAG.
