Why were the loudspeakers telling people in the audience to be calm moments before the bombs went off? Is this another false flag staged attack to take our civil liberties and promote homeland security while sticking their hands down our pants on the streets? – Dan Bidondi, “reporter/analyist” (sic) for Alex Jones’ Infowars [h/t Dave Weigel]

OF COURSE it’s all a conspiracy. How’d we miss this? The question above is from a guy associated with Alex Jones and Infowars, asked of Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.

This is partly the answer to why we can’t get universal background checks passed through Congress. The crazies have a megaphone as big as anyone.

As for the “false flag” charge, segue to Gawker:

The theory is: the Boston Marathon bombings were a “false flag” attack perpetrated by the government and used an excuse “to take our civil liberties and promote homeland security while sticking their hands down our pants on the streets.”

Who is posting about this on Facebook and Twitter: Alex Jones, the wackadoo radio host and conspiracy monger; the staffs of his websites, InfoWars and PrisonPlanet; your weird uncle who always wears a POW/MIA bandana.

Oh, and let’s not forget the guy on the roof, pictured at the top of this post, who is supposed to be in the middle of the government’s conspiracy.

Come on, people, it’s right in front of you.
