It is now a major news story all over the world. Suspicious packages are turning up in different places in America, some with explosive devices. They have no targeted some pretty high-level political figures, including former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (and therefore former President Bill Clinton) and the Obama family. Packages were also targeted at George Soros and former Attorney General Eric Holder. This is only a few of the names. This is an ongoing news story, and more instances are being revealed as we write this.
For those in conspiracy circles, the question here is who is responsible? Are these attempted attacks really seriously trying to hurt these targets? Does anyone really think they can successfully mail a bomb to Barack Obama and expect that mission to be successful?
Most people of normal intelligence would expect that to fail. And it did. The Secret Service intercepted the packages, and neither Hillary Clinton nor the Obama family were ever really in imminent danger. This is not to say that the actions are not despicable because they certainly are. Our point is just that it seems like a mission doomed to fail, which makes conspiracy theorists wonder if that isn’t exactly what it was.
Would this count as a false flag? Well, maybe. What if the Democratic Party was actually behind these attacks? Wait, you’ve got it backwards, you are thinking right now. What if the Republicans are behind these attacks is what you meant to say. Nope, we had it right the first time.
The targets of these attacks thus far have all been people aligned with the Democratic Party. Now that could change any minute now, but so far that is the case. So, based on these facts, it is safe to say that the majority of Americans probably believe right now that the origination of these packages will eventually be found to be a Republican sympathizer. But what if the packages were just designed to create even more bad will toward the Republicans just before an extremely important midterm election cycle that is now not even two weeks away. After all, a big part of the Democratic battle cry right now is to brand the other side as terrible, heartless people. This would just be one more nail in that coffin.
Sending packages that you know have no chance of accomplishing their perceived goal means that no one was ever really in danger, so it could be a political ploy. If this theory held true, that would indeed fit the definition of a false flag operation.
We will continue to monitor this situation as more facts become available, and we will discuss any and all theories. This is just the first thing that is being tossed around as this story develops. A suspicious package turning up at a prominent Republican’s doorstep would change the game quite a bit and lead the theories in a radical new direction. In any case, there is something going in America this week, and Common Sense Conspiracy will be watching it closely.
