Perhaps they want to stop conspiracy theorist from thinking that the government sent these shooters into schools as a pretext to take away our guns.
So far, they've done a pretty good job at shutting the whole "David Hogg is a crisis actor" motif down, nearly completely.
Anyone looking for any such idea will be met with page after page about how David used to live in California, how he returned last summer for a visit and subsequently filmed an incident involving a lifeguard and a surfboard.
Anyone attending the "Here's All the Facts" Seminar is welcome to pick up the =FREE!= snazzy media bag in the lobby, a neat and convenient little that-is-fake-news package for consumption now, during or even after the show.
Upon consumption, the participant will be fully armed to combat the inexplicably increasing growing number of wide-eyed tinfoil hat wearers with the goods:
Actual-factual information about David Hogg and his alleged role as a crisis actor.
With any luck, the inquisitive won't go any further, instead drowning all of that noise out with the same chant: anything, anyone calling David Hogg a crisis actor will be dismissed.
Makes one wonder why YouTube removed the several instances wherein he is filmed being coached, practicing his lines many times as precursor to the immediate "live" interview, ala Gene Rosen and his goofy rehearsal videos.
They were removed for "harassing and bullying" but YouTube does not explain how a person's own actions/words--- without narrative otherwise--- can be construed as either, nor is such a label self-evident.
He's def NOT a crisis actor, believe you me.
What he is, is a highly poised, brightly polished showman, a young man with a nose for a story and the composure to deliver the goods.
How poised is this upstanding young man, this diligent and earnest youthful citizen/public-advocate-in-the-making?
Let's take a look!
IBTimes UK posted this incredibly tense video of David Hogg, interviewing one of his fellow students from a closet in the newsroom class they attended while the active shooter was on his rampage
on this kid!
At 9:32 in the morning (you can see the sunlight coming in from the window to the left of the video), this courageous citizen-in-the-making says "Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!" and records a heart-rendering message from another very concerned student--- herself a heroine, truth be told, given the immediacy of the circumstances they were facing.
It's like these kids have no fear at all!
You can hear the squawking of the walkie-talkie in the background, along with the whispers of those other students crammed into the closet for safety, and they get their message out, just in case something happens to them in the process.
That doesn't begin to describe it.
One teensy, weensy little problem:
The shooting didn't start for another five hours.
Hopefully, too, the inquisitive won't go rooting around for any of the other videos, some of which have eye witnesses talk about two or more shooters:
Or the several out there wherein one of the students claimed to be walking through the halls with the shooter... while the shooting was going on.
Instead, let's have everyone focus on the stuff that has been debunked.
CASE CLOSED, people!
