Rush Limbaugh Raises Prospect That New Zealand Massacre Was False Flag Attack
By Jason Devaney
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Friday there’s a theory that the New Zealand shooting massacre was actually a false flag attack conducted to boost the political left and the gun control movement.
Speaking on his show, Limbaugh said the accused shooter in the terror attack — which left 49 people dead at two mosques in Christchurch — could have been a gun control advocate rather than the anti-immigrant, white supremacist he claimed to be.
“There’s an ongoing theory that the shooter himself may in fact be a leftist who writes the manifesto and then goes out and performs the deed purposely to smear his political enemies, knowing he’s gonna get shot in the process,” Limbaugh said. “You can’t immediately discount this.”
After reading portions of the accused shooter’s manifesto that referenced U.S. politics, Limbaugh added, “Now, if we’re to take this at face value, the guy’s objective here — and it probably is multifaceted — but one of his objectives is to continue to roil American society because he understands the leadership role America takes in the world, both culturally, economically, and politically.”
