I'm sure there is shit out there that seems like it's being staged or faked. I'm not going to dispute that. But something like this, crisis actors, seems unlikely. It sounds like more of an excuse not to believe the mainstream media, or the government, and instead, rely on something that is even more dishonest. Irony at it's best.
The video from live stream.... I found it odd. I looked a little closer. I didn't see other cameramen or photographers, aside from the initial CCTV camera. The injured people didn't look like they were made to look injured, and they laid on the ground for a little over a minute, with everyone rushing to their aid and transporting them away. I then looked into the meaning of crisis actors and found that people often mistake training exercises, or reenactments for tv shows, or hoax videos, for it. After that I looked into conspiracy sites to see what they said about the video, but they were unsurprisingly short on details. They didn't even have any evidence that it was used in any media footage. They couldn't even attribute it to any actual attack that was announced on the date on the video. I'm inclined to believe that what we saw was just a training exercise, and nothing more. Sometimes, simpler explanations are better than the fantastical, and overly complex, ones.
You know, there was nothing even remotely convincing about this conspiracy theory. The idea of crisis actors sounds so impractical on so many different levels. I mean, first, it would leave a lot of loose lips out there - which would probably lead to more conspiracy theories as to why they are not speaking up. Secondly, it seems to be a theory for convenience, to dismiss certain tragedies, or events, like the Newtown massacre - because the idea of a mentally ill person having access to a lot of guns, and doing something crazy with them, is impossible and must therefor be the work of evil government, who wants to disarm ordinary citizens and destroy the 2nd amendment. Lastly, all the media must be in collusion for this to happen - because, you know, they don't investigate or question, but accept everything the government tells them, like trump is great and would never lie.
The more I think about this the more it pisses me off - along with all the fake news out there. People don't have to believe everything they hear, especially from the mainstream media, or the government. But to completely shut them out because of lack of trust, and then turn that trust towards alternative facts that are even more suspect, is irony at it's best. It's also an excuse to not accept things, when convenient, because it doesn't turn out the way you want it to. I don't mind a good conspiracy theory - heck, I believe in some, myself (and some for guilty pleasure). But, they have to be plausible, at the very least. They can't be so needlessly complex, with millions knowingly involved, or have a wonky explanations that borders on insanity. You can pretty much dot anything together to form whatever. And there is plenty of fake photos and pictures out there that look real, made by people who either profit from them or get a kick out of taking in the gullible. I think this country would be better off if people concentrated on the real, instead of jumping down the rabbit hole.
