Called it

Regular readers, if there are any, know that I take a childish delight in crowing about my predictive powers, so it should come as no surprise that I’m going to do it again.

Shortly after the Las Vegas shooting I made a few observations, the last of which was this one:

Observation number three: Inasmuch as this one is a record setter, and will probably dominate the news for a few cycles, bets should be placed on how long it will take for one or more right wingers to suggest that it never happened.


Las Vegas shooting victims recovering from the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history earlier this month now face death threats from conspiracy theorists convinced that the massacre was a hoax, and that wounded individuals were crisis actors.

Of course the fact is anyone with a brain (which definitely excludes the scum doing this stuff) knew this would happen, so I can’t really claim much prescience. But you have to take your successes where you find them.
