#145 – Sandy Hook Hoax Response

The League of Nerds

A while back the nerds made a video looking into the idea that Sandy Hook was a hoax. Surprisingly they found the conspiracy lacking in substance. The response the nerds received from conspiracist was shocking and shows under current of irrational thought in the conspiracies community. James was too angry for this shit.

  1. Myles, I do enjoy the heck out of your show. Really no need to apologize – even if you are British.

    One deeply disturbing aspect of the Sandy Hook conspiracy theorists I think deserves more exposure is how they have personally attacked witnesses (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/15/gene-rosen-sandy-hook-conspiracy-theory_n_2481912.html) and the mass doxxing of survivors. Conspiracy thinking hinges on an in-group/out-group mentality which removes much of the grounding for humane behavior. Letting these ideas go unchallenged sets dangerous precedents.
