SHOOTING AT SIKH TEMPLE: WHO BENEFITS BIG-TIME?
by Jon Rappoport
August 5, 2012
The official and repeating scenario (“we believe there was only one shooter”) has already been contradicted.
Two witnesses (one who was apparently inside the temple and one outside who obtained information from his father) state there were multiple shooters.
The second witness says four white males unleashed a coordinated attack inside the temple. The first witness says gas was released.
The FBI is calling this an act of domestic terrorism. Why? No reason given. Domestic terrorism would indicate the intent to attack America itself. Even if this is called a hate crime, that doesn’t automatically equate with “domestic terrorism.” The authorities are going to work with this idea of domestic terrorism and make some hay out of it for themselves.
Coming on the heels of the Batman murders, this attack is sure to spur efforts to enact tighter gun control.
As with the two witnesses in Aurora who contradicted the official scenario, these two in Wisconsin are remarkably calm.
Neither Wisconsin man is wearing the ubiquitous Sikh turban. One man has a beard (traditional for Sikhs). The other man is clean shaven. Unusual. They both cut their hair—not traditional for Sikhs. I’m bringing this up because sometimes witnesses are planted, for various reasons, to offer misleading accounts.
The term “hate crime” is employed for a political agenda. For example, Major Nidal Hassan’s massacre of soldiers at Fort Hood was not called a hate crime or an act of domestic terrorism.
In the wake of the Aurora shootings and this one, the memory of Operation Fast&Furious is being pushed further out of the public memory. Keep that in mind. Fast&Furious obviously contained the agenda to enact tighter gun control.
Then we had Aurora, and now Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Both massacres will be used to push the gun control agenda, minus the obvious government crime associated with Fast&Furious.
It’s worth noting that new gun legislation in Wisconsin was enacted on November 1 of 2011. Concealed carry with a permit was made legal. Between November 1 and December 28, a stunning 64,832 applications for permits were received. And now we have today’s shooting, which will surely motivate some legislators to rethink the recent law and come out in favor of more control.
The furor in the press urging more gun control after Aurora will escalate to new heights now.
There is another more oblique formula at work here as well. The Wisconsin governor and public employees of the state have been at each other’s throats over cuts in public-employee benefits. Those who oppose the governor will try to set the temple killings as an illustration of “private citizens” as crazies, whereas government is “sane and dependable.” Propaganda is all about manipulation of images and vague generalities mixed in a potent stew to bring forth desired emotions. This formula was worked to perfection by Bill Clinton after the Oklahoma bombing in 1995. Faced with rampant anti-federal sentiment in the country, Clinton said, “Come home to the government.” And people did.
