Is the Sandy Hook School Shooting a Hoax?
The Sandy Hook shooting, which occurred in December 2012, has caused an enormous amount of debate over the years. But what actually caused it, and what can be done to prevent another similar tragedy? That’s a question that’s causing a lot of speculation and even outright conspiracy theories. Read on to find out more.

When tragedy struck, there was a segment of the online community who believed that the victims were lying about their tragedy. They thought that the event was an elaborate sham and a plot by the government.
The Sandy Hook sham was not the only mass shooting to hit the headlines in 2012. People from Las Vegas showed up to Santa Fe to shoot up a bar. And there was a second mass shooting in Pakistan.
One of the most important pieces of evidence that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax is the victim. Lenny Pozner’s 6-year-old son Noah died in the Sandy Hook shooting. His family has received dozens of death threats.
Another piece of evidence is that the official report does not mention the age of any of the alleged victims. There are also 52 “autopsy photos” of alleged victims that are redacted.
Lenny’s address was one of the first places that the hoaxers started to post videos of. He and his wife Veronique moved into a high security gated community. But the hoaxers kept re-posting the video.
Pizzagate is a popular conspiracy theory that alleges the U.S. government orchestrated the Sandy Hook school shooting in order to promote gun control. Alex Jones, a controversial conspiracy theorist and founder of the Infowars website, is one of the leading proponents of this myth.
This fanciful idea was first hatched on a social media website called 4chan. The message board is a hotbed of anti-Semitism and racism, and it was used to promote the conspiracy idea.
Pizzagate is not the first conspiracy theory to make the rounds. In recent years, the belief in conspiracies has grown in popularity. One reason for this trend is the ease with which people can access the internet. Conspiracy theorists often look for a patsy or stooge to blame for a real-world event.
“Pizzagate” proponents cite references to pizza in hacked emails from Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta. They also point to the alleged existence of a child sex ring based at Comet Ping Pong, a Washington D.C. restaurant owned by Democratic donor James Alefantis.
There has been much debate about whether the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax. The gunman killed 20 children and seven adults. Some families have claimed that they were victims of a conspiracy. Others believe it was the result of an act of desperation.
As a result of the shooting, families of the victims suffered from harassment and death threats. Social media became a place for hoaxers to target them.
The QAnon conspiracy movement was founded on an anonymous user called Q. He claimed to be a government insider. His followers were invited to dig for hidden clues. They also believed politicians were harvesting adrenochrome, a chemical compound produced by adrenaline oxidation.
Aside from false flag claims, the QAnon conspiracy theory also accused top Democrats of being part of a Satan-worshipping pedophilia ring. In addition, it claimed Trump was fighting a child sex trafficking ring.
These false claims spread rapidly on social media. In some cases, mistaken breaking news reports were spliced together in blogs and YouTube videos. This fueled more conspiracy theories.
There are some Americans who believe the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax. Among them are Florida Atlantic University professor James Tracy. He believes that the federal government orchestrated the shooting.
Tracey based his claims on an unconfirmed timeline. In addition to his work with FAU, he also co-hosts a podcast called the Sandy Hook Justice Report. He has also been a columnist for the Daily Iowan.
After posting an article that suggested the shooting was staged, FAU administrators moved to fire Tracy. The administration claimed that Tracy violated several policies and that he did not report outside activities.
As the controversy continues to unfold, Tracy has filed a lawsuit against the school. His attorneys have questioned university officials. And now, a jury will decide the fate of the fired professor.
According to the Sun-Sentinel, the families of some of the victims are claiming that Tracy harassed them. Lenny and Veronique Pozner wrote an op-ed piece last week in the newspaper. They also allege that Tracy has used university equipment to record a podcast.
