    Gene Rosen, Sandy Hook Hero, Harassed By Conspiracy Theorists Who Claim He's An Actor

    Gene Rosen, Sandy Hook Hero, Harassed By Conspiracy Theorists Who Claim He's An Actor

    On the morning of the shooting, Gene Rosen of Newtown, Conn., was feeding his cats when he discovered four terrified children hiding out in his driveway. They told him their teacher was dead, and he listened to their chilling account of the tragedy still going on at the nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School.

    In the aftermath, Rosen, 69, was interviewed by many of the media outlets that descended on the small community, and his anguished face flashed across television screens around the world.

    The sincerity of that anguish was questioned by a group of conspiracy theorists who call themselves "truthers," Salon reported earlier this month. These truthers have so far posted Rosen's personal information online, created fake social media accounts using his name and harassed him via email and phone.


    There really is no bottom to the odiousness of the rightwing in this country.

    I dont know one Con who thinks it was a Conspiracy.

    Seems like you should be picking on the CONSPIRACY THEORIST

    As, apparently, there is no bottom to the partisan blame-game of some Debate Politics posters.

    Because a vast majority of the RIGHT/libertarian/Indi are conspiracy theorist. That's why. Hell, just look at the white winged media.

    Curiously nothing in the OP's linked story mentions this "rightwing" angle at all. Some cats think that assertion = proof, even if no such evidence is presented. The story is about people questioning the use of this "witness" to tell us what is obvious, the killing of innocent children is not good and makes decent folks get upset. There is no need to "document" this fact, as certainly none question it. What this cat is upset about, is anyone daring to complain about (or question) this "emotional appeal" being used to justify taking away the gun rights of those who were in no way involved with this, or any oher, crime.

    I love it when conservatives have to pretend they are something they aren't. Let's see, which political persuasive gets bent out of shape about passing gun laws and thinks the government is conspiring to take their beloved Glocks? Come on, you can say it!

    Do you have documentation suggesting that he was operating under guidance of the GOP? Or that he was even a republican at all? Or is this just more of the 'head of joaquin' sensationalism?

    Did I mention the GOP?

    The lady doth protest too much, methinks. You obviously see the GOPs fingerprints all over this and so got defensive. It's what conservatives do.
