While we’ve never been one to tout the abilities of ISIS and radical Islam as impressive, their stupidity in the wake of last night’s Las Vegas shooting is unbelievable.
While Jason Aldean performed for a massive crowd at an outdoor concert on the Vegas strip last night, Stephen Paddock was holed up on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino. Why Paddock was there, and why he chose to unleash Hell upon the crowd of country music fans has yet to be determined. Could he have been involved with radical leftist organizations such as Antifa, as some have suggested? Did he simply “snap” as his brother and family members believe?
In some of the stranger corners of the internet there are even rumors of Manchurian candidates and MK Ultra brainwashing going on, along with claims of secondary shooters.
One equally as bizarre theory comes to us from ISIS, the radical Islamic terror group on the run in the middle east, who had suspiciously claimed responsibility for the attack – which was carried out by a 64 year old, white, multimillionaire real estate investor and accountant.
If that sounds impossible, well that’s because it is.
“The militant group Islamic State issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack, saying the gunman had converted to Islam months ago, though it provided no proof; almost immediately, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s field office in Las Vegas, Aaron Rouse, said federal authorities had found no such evidence.
“’We have determined, to this point, no connection to an international terrorist group,’ Rouse said.
“’We cannot fathom their pain, we cannot imagine their loss. To the families of the victims, we are praying for you, and we are here for you, and we ask God to see you through this very dark period,’ Trump said.”
The FBI’s insistence that this was not an act of radical Islamic terror came as little surprise to anyone…besides ISIS, of course.
Only in Europe has ISIS continued to maintain their status as a plausible threat, thanks in no small part to the continued relaxing of borders by the EU. In America, ISIS has been all but defunct, thanks to increased national security measures put into place by U.S. President Donald Trump. Their claim of involvement in Stephen Paddock’s actions is absurd on its face.
