Truthers accusing Carlee Soto, the sister of slain teacher Vicki Soto, of being a “crisis actor” have been posting her name, birth date and address on Instagram. “Crisis actor” is a term used by conspiracy theorists who believe the massacre at the elementary school was staged by the government as pretense for taking away guns. Twenty small children and six school staffers were killed in the attack. Vicki Soto died heroically, shielding her students.
Family members of Vicki Soto have been harassed since the massacre, but told Raw Story it’s never gone to the extent of having addresses posted online.
Instagram users are sharing a post that reveals contact and family information, including names of Soto’s mother, siblings and husband, and their social media user names.
“The Dox Of All Doxes!” the post reads. “The whole world is wondering about this girl who pops up on every major attack around the world. She has been on every media around the world crying her eyes. She have raised too many question amongst everyone. It was time to finally put an end to it and reveal everything about her. I want her to remember my name… for the rest of her life. She have been Exposed. Make this Viral.”
It then shows Carlee Soto’s home address, and says “Enjoy family.”
Apparently the reason behind this is the unshakable belief by certain people that Carlee Soto is an actress who has played the grieving survivor at a number of mass shooting scenes, all in an elaborate attempt by President Obama to take guns away from the American people.
Snopes has already debunked this bizarre conspiracy, going so far as to identify each INDIVIDUAL girl in the above graphic. But nothing seems to deter these folks from clinging to their absolute faith that the government and anti-gun crowd are trying to pull a fast one.
You know the thing that really irritates me about this kind of thing, besides of course the revealing of personal information, is that it undermines actual skulduggery that takes place, like Palin faking her last pregnancy.
Do you know when I was interviewed by The Anchorage Press five years ago they started off the interview by asking me what other conspiracy theories I believed in?
And that essentially set the tone for the entire article, which was, as you might imagine, far from fair and balanced.
That is the problem with these people who are open to believing every far fetched, fact free, assertion made by their crazy aunt on Facebook or Twitter.
There ARE actually some conspiracies to fool the American people, the lead up to the Iraq War was one of them, but once you slap the label of "conspiracy theory" on them (Such as "Trig Truther.), and categorize them along with these outlandish claims, then people simply stop listening despite whatever evidence you might bring to the table.
(P.S. By the way has anybody else noticed that Snopes has never delivered a ruling on Palin's pregnancy? Interesting, don't you think?
