Episode 64: Sandy Hook Conspiracy

On this episode of the Sofa King Podcast, we cover the controversial issue of the Sandy Hook Massacre and the conspiracy theory that surrounds it. According to official reports, this horrible tragedy happened on December 14th, 2012 when twenty-year-old Adam Lanza murdered his mother and then used several of her guns to kill 20 children (all ages 6 to 7) and several staff members of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. It was one of the most impactful of all mass shootings due to the death of children and one of the main reasons we now talk about mental health being critical in mass shootings—Adam Lanza suffered from mental illness.

However, according to many conspiracy theorists, there was no shooting at Sandy Hook. The entire thing was made up; it was a “False Flag Event” meant to scare people in to passing stricter gun laws. The evidence for this is largely video based, citing parents who give interviews a day after their children were killed but don’t show any remorse. Eye witnesses (such as Gene Lanza) are sketchy, the photographic evidence doesn’t add up, no formal first responder procedures were followed, and in fact some of the “parents” in the videos are allegedly “victims” on camera for other mass shootings and tragedies—but with different names. So, if members of the actor’s guild are pretending to be survivors of multiple tragedies, who is paying their bills? Could something like this be faked to the entire nation, or is this conspiracy too wild to believe? Listen in and see where we stand.
