Stories about Boston that Simply Are Not True

I have one retraction to print.

Yesterday I wrote an article dealing with Mike Adams and the vulture brigade circling the tragedy of Boston to twist it to their own purpose and to flog the fantasy of oppression and secret conspiracies.

I have to retract the notion that there was a third bomb. There was in fact an completely unrelated fire which was treated as a bomb because of the fears of further explosions. The notion that it was a third bomb at the Library was entirely fictitious. So I was looking around and wanted to check a few other “stories” going around. From the BBC’s news reporting we can affirm that there are some other “fantasies”.

1. Man planned to propose to his girlfriend who died in the attack before he could

2. Woman running for Sandy Hook or from Sandy Hook is killed. Sometimes the legend is that it’s one of the children who survived Sandy Hook

3. Iraqi War Veteran Killed (There is even one instance of it where the Iraqi War Vet was disabled and lost a second leg at Boston)

4. Race Organisers will Donate for Retweets. This one is as Stupid as it sounds. The account doing this was disabled

These are just some of the major ones buggering about. The usual false flag/conspiracy theorist groups aside.

And someone beat the conspiracy theorists to the punch and did something good on the Internet. They purchased and left a simple message to remember the victims and those affected by the attack rather than constructing grandiose conspiracy theories.

Vulture Brigade

There is a tendency among a lot of people who cannot understand a tragedy to utilise it to strengthen their delusional world view.

The Boston Marathon Attack has had these “fine” outstanding individuals come boiling out of the woodwork. They cannot accept any such attack without a nefarious plot (well more nefarious than kill random people) by government officials to benefit from this.
