A retired University of Duluth professor has been joined by a Florida Atlantic University professor with accusations of various Newtown, Conn., school shooting conspiracy theories.
Last week, the Duluth professor and former Marine known for his conspiracy theories claimed the U.S. government was involved in the Newtown, Conn., school shootings.
The Duluth News Tribune reported that professor, James Fetzer, wrote in online columns that “the Sandy Hook massacre appears to have been a psy op intended to strike fear in the hearts of Americans by the sheer brutality of the massacre, where the killing of children is a signature of terror ops conducted by agents of Israel.”
The act, Fetzer said in an interview with the News Tribune, “is part of an escalating series of covert operations intended to create hysteria in the American people in order to support gun control legislation that completely subverts the Second Amendment.”
This week, the Sun Sentinel reported that a Florida Atlantic University communications professor also known for conspiracy theories argued that the massacre “did not happen as reported — or may not have happened at all.”
James Tracy claimed in radio interviews and on his blog that “trained ‘crisis actors’ may have been employed by the Obama administration in an effort to shape public opinion in favor of the event’s true purpose: gun control,” the paper reported:
“As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media coverage of the massacre of 26 children and adults was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends,” writes Tracy, a tenured associate professor of media history at FAU and a former union leader.
In another post, he says, “While it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place — at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nation’s news media have described.”
