The nonsensical Sandy Hook denier narrative – wholly invented and peddled (quite literally, via autographed books, endless
panhandling fundraising drives, and advertising revenue) by lunatics such as Wolfgang Halbig, James Fetzer, James Tracy, and Maria Chang – is one that aggressively defies all logic and reason. It requires us to believe that the United States government was able to successfully (at least in the minds of 99.99% of the world’s population) engineer an enormous, sprawling drama, involving hundreds if not thousands of fiercely loyal, silent conspirators and co-conspirators, simply to pass some limp-dicked local gun legislation, while simultaneously refusing to accept the idea that a mentally-ill twenty year-old obsessed with school shootings and with easy, unrestricted access to powerful assault weapons could shoot up an elementary school. It also requires us to believe that those same criminal masterminds possess the nearly endless resources required to pull off such a feat (which includes buying nearly everyone in Newtown a house apparently), but need to continually re-use their “actors” in vastly different “roles”. For instance, we’re told – presumably with a straight face – that Sandy Hook parent David Wheeler also needed to “play” an FBI agent. And as I learned the other day, veteran medical examiner Dr. H. Wayne Carver even had to direct traffic at the entrance to Dickinson Drive. Why would this be necessary when Newtown has a fully capable volunteer fire and rescue company? And why would he allow himself to be photographed this way by a member of the complicit mainstream media? Trust me, these are not the kinds of questions deniers like to answer.
The David Wheeler nonsense has been addressed here (and elsewhere) before, but I have to admit that the claim regarding Dr. Carver is completely new to me. I encountered it for the very first time just the other day on the “Sandy Hook Hoaxers Are Not Bright” Facebook page, where an absolute peach by the name of “Janice Anderson” boldly stated the following (and please ignore the fact that she believes David Wheeler’s name is actually “Dan”):
As previously stated, I had never heard this one before. Believe it or not, I don’t spend much if any time on conspiracy blogs because they honestly make my brain hurt, so much of what I write about here comes from interactions like one.
Since Janice’s claim was completely new to me, I hadn’t seen the photograph in question. And since dopes like Janice almost never include the material they’re referencing, I asked her what she was going on about. After a bit of prodding, she finally provided the following:
Now it should be obvious to those of us not suffering from Fregoli delusion that this face – even as it is mostly obscured by a shadows, sunglasses, and a hat – does not belong to Dr. H. Wayne Carver. Hell, neither does the body, as Carver is an enormous mountain of a man, as demonstrated in the following photo:
But of course saying “no, that’s not him, and these two people don’t even look all that much alike” is never enough for people like Janice, even though it’s the exact tactic they most often employ. Instead, you’re forced to do the research that they won’t. And that’s exactly what I did. Again.
The first thing I did was locate the original photograph, since deniers aren’t all that fond of sourcing their material. As it turns out, the above is a cropped and then enlarged version of the following photograph, taken by AP photographer Frank Becarra, Jr.:
I was also able to find another photo of the same man taken on the same day, this time on Getty Images:
These original, unedited version makes it much more clear that this is not Dr. Carver… unless you think everyone with a white beard is the same person, in which case someone ought to seriously look into Kenny Rogers’s whereabouts that morning. But who is it? Who is this mysterious man directing traffic while wearing a bright green “Fire Police” cap? Well, it may shock you to your very core to learn that this man is actually a member of Newtown’s Fire Police force. Now who can say they saw that one coming?
Looking through some of Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue’s photos, I noticed this picture of a man who bore a uh, uncanny resemblance to the man seen directing traffic:
This man’s name is Karl Sieling Sr., and back in December of 2012, he was Newtown’s Chief of Fire Police, having worked for the department for nearly fourteen years. Here’s a picture of him – wait for it – directing traffic at Sandy Hook’s LobsterFest 2011:
Notice he’s wearing the same exact sunglasses in all three photos. Also notice that he is of average or even below average height, a stark contrast from hulking Dr. Carver.
Karl’s identity has even been confirmed by a friend, posting on the AR15.com message board:
I see my friend Karl here, being accused of being the weird coroner guy.
THIS is the fireman you’re seeing in the pictures… Karl Sieling Sr.
He’s the Chief of Fire Police. It’s his job to direct traffic, while the police are too busy doing other things, like investigating the shooting of 26 children and adult women. He’s an ex Newtown cop and is EXTREMELY active in the Newtown community, as far as doing charity work, benefits, public speaking, etc. He’s also a devoted Constitutionalist and couldn’t be more against our current government administration.
And he’s no actor.
So, after already having seen the Phelps’ and the Robbie Parker interview, and then seeing Karl being brought into this… It got my conspiracy minded brain thinking. I started thinking to myself, “What the fuck. What’s true now? What’s bullshit and what’s true? Because THIS certainly isn’t true!”
So, I contacted Karl and told him what I was seeing. It was news to him, to find out he was part of some crazy conspiracy. Not only did it piss him off, but it also got him worried. Not only worried that his name is being passed around in a negative way… But also worried that this whole story itself, was getting out of hand. We ALL know people involved in the shooting. And none of us want to see a friend’s name getting dragged into the md, especially since so many horrific things are already under everyone’s belts.
And it’s true: Karl really, really disliked the Obama administration (or any other democrat, for that matter), a fact he has made abundantly clear on both Facebook and Twitter. He is also an avid supporter of gun rights, so I’m sure it tickled him pink to learn that he’s actually an actor, hired to participate in a phony school shooting, coordinated by President Obama himself to take everyone’s guns away from them. At least he seems to have a sense of humor about it:
