A 30-minute YouTube video that details a slew of conspiracy theories surrounding the Newtown, Conn., school shooting last month is gaining traction online, having earned more than 8.5 million views since it was posted on Jan. 7.
The video, rife with spelling errors and edited footage, joins a host of other blogs and online postings that question the validity of the massacre, which left 20 children and six adults from Sandy Hook Elementary School dead.
My question for you is this: Is the behaviour you’re witnessing right now, the facial expressions and the body language, consistent with that of two parents who just lost their daughter?
“This is a simple, logical video,” reads text at the beginning of the video. “No aliens, holigrams [sic], rituals or anything like that, just facts.”
The video, called The Sandy Hook Shooting — Fully Exposed, points to confusing and conflicting news reports from immediately after the shooting as proof of some kind of deception.
These news reports included claims there was more than one shooter that day, and that shooter Adam Lanza’s mother was a kindergarten teacher at the school. Both reports were later corrected.
