“In these times, we have to unify,” President Donald Trump said in response to reports of bombs sent to high-level Democratic public officials, “we have to come together and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America.”
He also assured that “a major federal investigation is now underway.”
It sure looks like a concerted operation, considering the number of targets: political funder George Soros, former CIA director John Brennan, former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rep. Maxine Waters, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, et al.
Given the political affiliations of the recipients, many people assume it was a partisan terrorist from the Republican side of the proverbial “aisle.”
But note the obvious: not one putative bomb went off. Or even got close to the ostensible targets.
One device seems to have “ISIS” scrawled on it, but experts tell us that device is well below ISIS standards. It turns out that the marking is an ISIS parody symbol. The perp is not likely a jihadist “lone wolf” wannabe.
Bombs going off is serious terrorism, deadly evil. But bombs not going off is serious . . . propaganda by the dud.
What if the point is not to explode and hurt people, but to “explode” in human minds?
Could this be an “October surprise,” the false flag of some demented person or “cell” on “the left” to impugn “the right”?
As Matt Walsh hazarded at The Daily Wire, “It does not take a conspiracy theorist to wonder about the timing and methods in this case.”
We do not know much yet. Questions will hopefully soon be answered.
