Barron Co. GOP posts link alleging Newtown shooting was government conspiracy


MADISON (WKOW) -- The Barron County Republican Party has shared a link on its Facebook page from a blogger who asserts that the December massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT was the work of the United States Government.

The link, shared by the Barron County GOP on December 19th, is from a wordpress blog site called "Short Little Rebel: One Christian's Conservative Take on Politics."

The site is run by a woman named Susan Shannon.

In the blog about the Newtown shootings, Shannon writes: "I believe our GOVERNMENT shot those kids and teachers and used Adam Lanza and his family to pull it off. They might have killed two birds with one stone. One: If these men are involved in the LIBOR scandal, they can manipulate their testimony. Two: They get gun control. How very, very clever and efficient of them, right?"

The LIBOR scandal Shannon mentions involves a series of fraudulent actions committed in the British Banking System from 2007-2012. Shannon explains what she believes the relation is to the Newtown shootings in the full blog entry.

Of the seven comments posted on the Barron Co. GOP Facebook page about the entry, six express outrage that the group would have shared such a link. The Barron County GOP has not posted any comments about the link.
