James Tracy says Sandy Hook was faked

A Florida Atlantic University professor named James Tracy alleges the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre in Newtown, CT, which took the lives of 20 children and six adults, did not happen as reported.

Tracy, who teaches communications at FAU, asserts in radio interviews and on his website memoryholeblog.com, that trained “crisis actors” may have been employed by the Obama administration in an effort to shape public opinion in favor of the event’s true purpose: gun control.

A tenured associate professor of media history, Tracy writes:

“As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media coverage of the massacre of 26 children and adults was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends.”

In another blog piece, Tracy writes:

“While it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place — at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nation’s news media have described.”

While Tracy’s appalling claims are even further into the wilderness than gun lunatics like NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre, fringe radio oddity Alex Jones, and aging rocker has-been Ted Nugent, his warped mind also doubts about the official version of the Oklahoma City bombing, the 9/11 terror attacks and the Aurora, CO theater murders.

Meanwhile, Florida Atlantic University media director Lisa Metcalf said the school is distancing itself from Tracy’s views, saying:

“James Tracy does not speak for the university. The website on which his post appeared is not affiliated with FAU in any way.”

    And this idiot is a tenured professor?

  2. The Real Adam says:

    The people who follow Alex Jones and Jeff Rense will believe the nutty postings of James Tracy.

    Remember, these are the same people who think the moon landings were faked, 9/11 was an inside job and fluoride in the water is about government mind control. There’s no way to break through with them and help them see 5+5 equals 10.

  3. xas says:

    I guess the engineers who explained that WTC collapsed due to the explosions on the inside were crazy and nutty too

  4. Harry says:

    Here come the conspiracy trolls. :-)

  5. ChiTOM says:

    It just astounds me. We can laugh all we like, but I find it more than a little scary when a tenured university professor with access to impressionable students opines such garbage. Adam Lanza was a mentally ill young man raised by a mother who expressed prepper views and kept an arsenal of firearms in her home. What Adam learned his mother planned to sell the family home and place him in a group home, he snapped. Sandy Hook was not carried out by actors. Jeez people. Think before you post on your blog. Tracy should know better.

  6. Rachel says:

    I wanted to comment but the noise from the black helicopters buzzing my house is deafening and I can’t concentrate. I’ll be back again later, if, that is, if I’m not abducted by men wearing Ray Bands and suits talking into walkee-talkees. Wish me luck! ;-)

    And the Earth doesn’t revolve around the Sun, either….. What an Idiot…. FAU should fire him and make him get a job selling burgers at McDonald’s

  8. cjmac711 says:

    This guy is a lunatic and paranoid. He doesn’t even have any proof to his claim. He shows utter disrespect to those affected by the massacre.

  9. Tiny Dancer says:

    Conspiracies are for people too stupid to gain admission to college.

  10. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    I love conspiracy theories. I find them amusing and highly creative. Here are a few of my favorites:

    * Paul McCartney is dead. The current is just a lookalike
    * Stephen King killed John Lennon
    * Alien Reptiles are dominating the World
    * Israel makes palestinian schoolgirls sexually promiscuous by selling them aphrodisiac bubble-gum

    Seriously, these are so good. But people go on believing them and there’s no budging them with logic or facts.

  11. Jane says:

    Might be amusing if caricatures of human beings (like Tracy) weren’t the tail wagging the dog in this country, making progress impossible on nearly every front… Astonishingly, Florida Atlantic University believes that “distancing itself” from their tenured professor’s (yikes!) remarks is effective, satisfactory – even possible! Wonder if FAU offers a course entitled “Illegitimate Rape.” Lovely, to see that, yet again, in the spin-cycle. What fate, the national intelligence?

  12. Mets Fan says:

    So Florida Atlantic University can’t fire Tracy because he’s a tenured professor? Interesting.

    Let’s us say, hypothetically, he came to school and instructed his student to try and assassinate President Obama? Would the school be impotent to take action and remove him? This doesn’t make any sense.

  13. fran says:

    Throwing salt into the wounds of those who just buried 26 innocent people.
    I really wish these lunatics were made to attend or observe the funerals w the little child sized caskets, and feel the pain of the community, maybe then they would have a better understanding.
    The “lets not politicize this”, prayers for the deceased, then repeat the same for the next massacre routine has become old. It has become obvious that the largely unregulated military style weaponry in the hands of ordinary citizens is out of control.

    The only thing James Tracy is missing is one of those tin foil hats.

  14. Tena says:

    “Stephen King killed John Lennon.

    What? ROFLMAO!

  15. Matteo says:

    Stick this up your ass, James Tracy.

  16. Repeat Offender says:

    His students should tell him they are disgusted by his hurtful and absurd charges. They should then all stand up and walk out of the class.

  17. feminazi says:

    People like James Tracy also say the Holocaust didn’t happen. When I was a young woman and I read remarks like this, it caused me great angst. Later, I realized such rants can only exist in the minds of the most unbalanced individuals. With age, Ive learned to ignore such people.

  18. Joe in Colorado says:

    James Tracy is standing on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook. Shame on you.

  19. Vivzz says:

    Mr. Tracy is entitled to his opinion and organization of reality. What troubles me is, he has access to young people and young people are impressionable. If only student embraces the views of Tracy, then it’s one too many.

  20. Pechanga says:

    This guy is a creep. Period.

    As for Florida Atlantic’s hands being tied, perhaps the Department of Eduction should revisit the rules vis a via this school receiving student loan monies. I’m sure Mr. Tracy will be unemployed right away.

  21. Marcus Ybanez says:

    I think James Tracy needs to step out from behind his blog and tell the parents, sisters, brothers, grandparents, aunts, and uncles their 8-year old family member was shot in the head and killed by Obama-hired “crisis actors”.

    He won’t return home alive.

  22. Stephen Iversonn says:

    I visited this James Tracy’s so-called blog and it seems the real focus of contempt is directed at CNN and Anderson Cooper.

    Strange as I recall all the cable news outlets and the networks covered the events at Newtown, CT.

    Even the international media was present and reporting. I honestly don’t have an inkling as to what is ailing these conspiracy freaks but they’re dangerous and I hope the Feds are keeping an eye on them. They’re truly subversive.

  23. Anthony says:

    I’m not sure if it was real or not myself, but it certainly isn’t what the media says. There was a lot left out and more than one who was on the police radio that day. I haven’t heard Jones and don’t see myself doing that. It don’t take a rocket scientist though to see a whole lot more going on and left out.

  24. Seabec says:

    Anthony – I’m sick and tired of you crazy Sandy Hook conspiracy theorists. I’ve heard the police 911 radio tapes and the principal who was ultimately shot and killed by Adam Lanza told the operator to send help quick, a shooter had entered the school. What’s next from you crazies? A fantasy tie between the gunman’s family and the LIBOR banking scandal? Get a life.

  25. I agree with Repeat Offender. Any student (or parent paying tuition) who enrolls in one of his classes should be ashamed of themselves.

  26. jlh says:

    Why would any human even attempt to raise doubt based on suspicions? REALLY? To use your position and status to create more problems without more reason than a bunch of “theories”? From experience with trauma and the public.. Alot of people can “assume” alot of things especially on the superficial facts given.. but unless you KNOW what your talking about? You only cause more hurt, more pain, get yourself involved, discredit yourself.. based on assumptions and not the ALL the hardcore facts involved. But to go public and create another storm on families that have been through enough already? Did you think of that before you gave and “expert” opinion?

  27. WWGD says:

    I am ashamed of the FAU President and the Board of Trustees not taking a stand to this Lunatic and disgracing FAU. …something about state employees being accountable and governing themselves in accordance with their position at state universities..but heck you guys have the know all this …Right?

  28. anon says:

    Your mind is warped. You obviously can’t see the truth that the government kills its own people to further its agenda. The government isn’t working for you, it’s working for its self. I pity the fool who cannot see this.

  29. ASLEEP NO MORE! says:

    Yep, Stephen Iversonn, this is also all a LIE, put out by our own National Archives…
    OH! Gotcha! NOW I know that Operation Northwoods was all fake, even though it is on official declassified documents and signed by numerous high ranking officials in our government….SO glad you cleared that up for me.
    Just so everyone ELSE will know….
    Operation Northwoods was was a false flag operation to MANIPULATE the public in order to justify war. BELIEVE IT! IT IS A DOCUMENTED plan by OUR GOVERNMENT TO CREATE “A WAVE OF NATIONAL INDIGNATION”. PRAISE GOD it was nixed by JFK, but the FACT is, IT WAS REAL…..IT IS UNBELIEVABLE THAT IT WAS EVEN PROPOSED….SO don’t tell me how wonderful and UNCORRUPTED our government is, how they would NEVER DO SOMETHING UNETHICAL TO SWAY PUBLIC OPINION………….Here are some pertinent “points” the plan included:
    In part, the plan called for the following:
    1. Since it would seem desirable to use legitimate provocation as the basis for U.S. military intervention in Cuba a cover and deception plan, to include requisite preliminary actions such as has been developed in response to Task 33 c, could be executed as an initial effort to provoke Cuban reactions. Harassment plus deceptive actions to convince the Cubans of imminent invasion would be emphasized. Our military posture throughout execution of the plan will allow a rapid change from exercise to intervention if Cuban response justifies.
    2. A series of well coordinated incidents will be planned to take place in and around Guantanamo to give genuine appearance of being done by hostile Cuban forces.
    ……………………
    10. Sabotage ship in harbor; large fires—naphthalene.
    11. Sink ship near harbor entrance. Conduct funerals for mock-victims (may be in lieu of (10)).
    b. United States would respond by executing offensive operations to secure water and power supplies, destroying artillery and mortar emplacements which threaten the base.
    c. Commence large scale United States military operations.
    3. A “Remember the Maine” incident could be arranged in several forms:
    a. We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba.
    b. We could blow up a drone (unmanned) vessel anywhere in the Cuban waters. We could arrange to cause such incident in the vicinity of Havana or Santiago as a spectacular result of Cuban attack from the air or sea, or both. The presence of Cuban planes or ships merely investigating the intent of the vessel could be fairly compelling evidence that the ship was taken under attack. The nearness to Havana or Santiago would add credibility especially to those people that might have heard the blast or have seen the fire. The United States could follow up with an air/sea rescue operation covered by U.S. fighters to “evacuate” remaining members of the non-existent crew. CASUALTY LISTS IN THE U.S NEWPAPERS WOULD CAUSE A HELPFUL WAVE OF NATIONAL INDIGNATION……SORT OF LIKE THE WAVE OF NATIONAL INDIGNATION OVER GUN CONTROL?
    I really, really know that it is impossible to believe that our own government would perpetrate a “false flag” event to MANIPULATE US…OR EVEN ENTERTAIN the thought of something like this, but here it is in black and white declassified documents….THIS one didn’t occur, but HOW in the WORLD could OUR government EVEN CONSIDER something like this….THIS is the government you trust. :/ not me….ANYMORE!
    If you can’t believe the government is capable of perversions, you, sir, are blind and not well read.
