Wingnuts Already Suggesting Buffalo Shooting Could Be a “False Flag” Operation

After a shooter killed 10 people in Buffalo and allegedly posted an online racially-motivated manifesto, the right wing conspiracy theorists began contesting within hours the proposed hate crime as a “false flag” operation.

Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers posted her thoughts on Gettr that the FBI is behind the shooting in Buffalo, seeking to blame conservatives.

Nick Fuentes, who is classified as a white supremacist by the Southern Poverty Law Center, described the shooting as a “new false flag” on Telegram on Saturday.


Far right-wing Florida congressional candidate Laura Loomer jumped on the crazy train as well, suggesting a pre-midterm election set up.

Loomer also tried to tie Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the shooting.


Authorities are investigating the shooting as a racially motivated hate crime, while Fuentes, Rogers, and Laura Loomer have zero evidence to back up their claims of a false flag operation.
