Debunking Alex Jones and Wolfgang Halbig’s ludicrous Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theories

On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza fatally shot his mother before murdering 20 students and six staff members at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, before turning the gun on himself. A number of fringe figures have promoted conspiracy theories that doubt or dispute the events that took place that day – claiming, for example, that the massacre was actually orchestrated by the U.S. Government as part of an elaborate plot to promote stricter gun control laws. The most popular of these conspiracy theorists is the radio show host Alex Jones who, with his little friend Wolfgang Halbig, made a 30-minute video where they talk about the best evidence they have that the whole thing was a massive conspiracy.

In this video, I talk about the main pieces of ‘evidence’ the theorists give to support this theory, and talk about the horrendous impact these people are having on the families of the Sandy Hook victims.
