Florida GOP District Secretary Fired After Saying Parkland Students Were ‘crisis actors’ Who Travel To Shootings

Republican conspiracy theorists have been attacking survivors of the Parkland school shooting who are asking for more strict gun laws.

Alex Leary of the Tampa Bay Times tweeted that he received an e-mail from Benjamin Kelly, an aide to lawmaker Shawn Harrison claiming Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg were “actors that travel to various crisis when they happen,” reported Raw Story.

 

 

Student victims have been attacked on social media by many right wingers and trolls, as well as the infamous conspiracy nut Alex Jones.

Jones, who also claims that other school shootings were staged using child actors after Sandy Hook, has naturally joined in spreading the conspiracy, and he even says Democrats are suspects.

Since the ridiculous comment, Kelly has been fired.
