Conspiracy theorists are pretty much the worst of the worst.
Just log on to social media and check out the purveyors of conspiracy theories – your InfoWars and Alex Jones-types.
The problem is that too many see these social media attention grabs as legitimate news, and they let them guide their lives.
It’s all chemtrails and secret Mars labor camps for kids in the world of conspiracy.
That, and “false flags.”
On Monday, two such deluded idiots were arrested in Texas for taking their psychotic show on the road and harassing shooting survivors.
In November 2017, 26-year old Devin Patrick Kelley entered a church in the town of Sutherland Springs, Texas and opened fire, killing 26 and injuring 20 more.
Of those killed, one was the 14-year old daughter of the Pastor, so you can only imagine the pain of that community and those church members, especially. The last thing they need is to have those wounds torn open by attention-seekers.
The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office arrested Robert Ussery, 54, and Jodi Mann, 56, for confronting and harassing pastor Frank Pomeroy at Sutherland Springs Baptist Church after a church congregant called the police, according to the San Antonio Express-News.
Ussery and Mann are conspiracy theorists who claim the shooting at the church did not happen and was actually a hoax perpetrated by the Department of Homeland Security.
Pastor Pomeroy had to go through Christmas without his young daughter. He entered a new year, knowing his child will not see another year, another holiday, another birthday on this earth, and the horror of that day isn’t even 4 months old, but in that time, he has had to deal with the taunts and harassment of these scumbags.
The pastor says the two “continually yelled and screamed and hollered and told me he was gonna hang me from a tree.”
They need to be beaten.
It’s not just the pastor, but apparently the entire surviving church body has been targeted by these jerks.
The conspiracy theorists, who run a website full of homemade videos attempting to prove the shooting was a government-staged hoax, approached and began screaming at Pomeroy as he pulled up to the church in his car. The pastor waited until the police arrived.
“We’ve already had to deal with one person that lived in an alternate reality,” Pomeroy said of the 26-year-old shooter who killed himself after carrying out the massacre in November.
They certainly shouldn’t have to deal with these wannabe-InfoWars creeps.
Ussery and Mann were on top of the February 14 shooting in Parkland, Florida, as well, pushing the notion that this was a “staged drill,” supposedly to kick up dust in the gun control debate and give the government a reason to step in and confiscate our guns.
There’s not a single thing unique about these guys, and just saying that is a scary thing.
Let’s hope the penalties for what they’re doing are stiff enough that they learn and stay away from this community.
