Jim Hoft, the Gateway Pundit, isn’t referred to far and wide as the dumbest man on the internet for nothing. In the aftermath of the shootings in Las Vegas perpetrated by a couple of right wing, anti-government extremists, he immediately declared them to be “socialists.”
The Las Vegas police shooters were identified as two Neo-Nazi socialists.
Neighbors said “Jared” and “Amanda” had talked about killing police officers then going underground until the time was right to come out and kill some more.
Uh, socialists? Evidence, please? They clearly had a far-right, anti-government ideology. Does Hoft think they went to the Bundy Ranch and ranted about dark conspiracies by the evil left-wing Obama in the name of socialism? Better yet, one of his commenters threw out what may be the greatest No True Scotsman argument in history:
CONSERVATIVES, by definition, do not get high on pot and meth and go on shooting sprees killing innocent LEO’s minding their own business and eating their lunches … period. Case closed. End of story.
Okey dokey. And an awesome conspiracy theory, offered with no evidence at all of course:
All the signs of another Southern Poverty Law Center psyops program. They even had to drag Walmart into it. ” Jared ‘ and ” Amanda ” were prepped to pose as neo nazis in return for drugs ..probably even got well laundered money originating at some government entity that needs manifestations of violent white racism to maintain and advance the totalitarian agenda. The cops killed were also likely well selected by the handlers of this operation..the kind of good cops who could not be corrupted by the system yet witness to so much filth as to be feared for what they could say.
On Planet Wingnuttia, if they can imagine it to be true, it automatically is true.
