Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones promoted various conspiracy theories and hoaxes about the Las Vegas mass shooting on his InfoWars Internet show.
Media Matters notes that Jones claimed that the shooter was a “leftist” who was “angry about Trump”:
About 20 minutes ago, ISIS took responsibility for the attacks, and the police have confirmed that he had — the reported shooter had recently personally threatened them and posted videos threatening them, saying that he had joined ISIS, joined Al Qaeda, and that he was basically a leftist, just like [alleged NSA leaker] Reality Winner, and just like so many others that had converted to Islam, that was so angry about Trump and everything that was happening that he went out and carried out this attack.
Now, again, clearly it looks like he had help, but we saw the October 1st event of the 100 years of the Bolshevik Revolution coming up, and I had been predicting starting October 1st that we’d see terror attacks.
Jones also suggested that “deep state Democrats and their Islamic allies” were behind the shooting:
The literal grandchildren of the folks that financed the Bolshevik Revolution out of New York and London are now bragging saying Bolshevik 2 is launching. I told you over and over again that I believe their November 4th launch terror date was a smokescreen for them to begin launching terror attacks in October. They will get successively more intense until you basically come punch-drunk to them, then they’ll launch their main attack.
Here’s the other big news. On Saturday night, Monday morning — Sunday morning, they released O.J. [Simpson] just 20 hours before the attack took place so all the media would come and be in place to cover this event. The whole thing has the hallmarks of being scripted by deep state Democrats and their Islamic allies using mental patient cut-outs. I’m Alex Jones.
David Knight, a host on Alex Jones’ Infowars channel, suggested the Las Vegas shooting might be a false flag to take away gun rights from Americans, notes RawStory.com.
