Just when we all thought the NRA could not get any battier, they come out with an absurd, over-the-top ad condemning President Obama's children for having armed guard protection.

(What in the world are they trying to say, President Obama and his family need protection more than any other President due to the advent of the prejudiced Tea Party that has more Bigots than Carter Has Liver Pills --You would have had to be brought up in the 50's to know that phrase)

Also, we now have a new group rising out of the Toxin and stirring up The Human Rotten called the Sandy Hook Truther movement It doesn't get any worse than this folks.

What is wrong with the American people anyway? It's perplexing that so many of our citizens do not want to see, think or hear candor, preferring Lies, Distortions and Conspiracy Theories instead of the NAKED TRUTH. I wish with all my heart that the massacre of 20 beautiful children at Sandy Hook did not occur but it did, just ask all those bereaved who lost their babies, I know they must wake up each morning and scream out "WHY?”… I wish there was a plausible explanation for such insanity but calling this heartsick tragedy a hoax is beyond anything a normal thinking human being could possibly endure. FAU professor James Tracy needs to step down as an educator, he has no business teaching when his perception of reality is so pathetically warped. And as for the Sandy Hook Truthers, How In The World Do You Live With Yourselves? thinkingblue

Why Sandy Hook Massacre Spawned Conspiracy Theories
By Benjamin Radford

One month after the Sandy Hook school shootings, the list of victims continues to grow. One man, Gene Rosen — who found six children and a bus driver in his driveway, brought them into his home, fed them and called parents to assure them that their children were safe — has been harassed by telephone, email and online by those who think he is lying about his actions, and is part of a conspiracy.

Rosen is not the first hero to be assaulted and insulted by conspiracy theorists with doubts. In 2002, when conspiracy theorist Bart Sibrel confronted astronaut Buzz Aldrin and called him a "coward and a liar" for faking the moon landings, the 72-year-old promptly punched Sibrel in the face.

A group called the Sandy Hook Truther movement has emerged from the dust and chaos over the past weeks to claim that the school shooting was all a staged event. Though many Americans are outraged and incredulous that anyone could doubt that the tragedy even happened, the Sandy Hook school shootings follow classic conspiracy thinking. Here are a few reasons why.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
