Apparently some nutcases are so anti-government that they are willing to promote every natural disaster as a government plot of some kind.
First came the tornado.
Now comes the falling debris of crazy.
Soon after a devastating twister struck Moore, Okla., on Monday, the community banded together to rebuild broken buildings, mend shattered lives and bury at least 24 dead.
Against the backdrop of this difficult work, Internet conspiracy theorists have also been busy—concocting other realities and suggesting the government may have orchestrated the disaster.
Leading the innuendo is American radio host Alex Jones, who on Tuesday admitted he doesn’t know if the Oklahoma tornado is for sure a “weather weapon or not.”
But having no doubt there are companies in Canada and the U.S. that use aircraft to manipulate the weather, he said government officials can control storms to kill its own citizens.
“They can create and steer groups of tornados,” he told his Internet audience, adding if small aircraft were seen in the area before Monday’s twister, they may be signs it was man-made.
