FAU's James Tracy on Boston Bombing: The Government Planned It
FAU tenured Professor James Tracy, who took some withering backlash earlier this year when he questioned whether a gunman had actually killed children at Sandy Hook Elementary, is back at it.
This time, Tracy -- who makes more than $60,000 per year in public money and teaches courses on conspiracy theories -- thinks the Boston bombing was a hoax. According to an impossibly long and impossibly confusing missive he posted yesterday on his blog, the professor of communications thinks the government planted "mass-casualty drill actors" at the Boston Marathon before the bombs exploded.
"A multitude of evidence has already emerged in the last few days suggesting government involvement in the Boston bombing," Tracy clacked. "None of this information has been ferreted out or acknowledged by major news outlets, which... contribute to the mass psychological effect and provide additional rationale for a heightened police state."
Let's get one thing straight, Tracy. If the Boston Bombing teaches us anything: Major news outlets have no problem whatsoever publishing misrepresentations and untruths. But, Tracy says, they just won't print his mistruths. So that means -- idea explosion! -- they're part of the illuminati poised to enact totalitarian and shadowy control over the nation.
(Trust no one.)
The Tracy evidence: "Does a compelling description [italics his] of a terrorist attack replete with 'eyewitness accounts' of a terrifying scene and official pronouncements constitute an actual event?"
...Yes? It also helps that there were loads upon loads of pictures and videos, each depicting mass hysteria and panic and genuine heartache.
But that's not good enough, says Tracy. Those images were either obvious fakes -- or staged.
It's likely, Tracy contends, that "mass-casualty drill" actors descended upon the scene before the explosions to impart the mirage of a terrorist attack. It was far too convenient, he argues, that bomb-sniffing dogs were at the Boston Marathon.
Then in Tracian crescendo, he unveils The Truth.
