Huff Post is extremely highly rated. I believe it is rated in the top 82 web sites out of some 3 million websites around the world. It is read by millions of people. So, while I can shrug off some obscure “Orly bashing” sites, I figure I should respond to another Huff Post article attacking me. I got a dubious distinction of someone who the left loves to hate and loves to attack, while it might actually be a badge of Honor on the right. I could not answer to their article earlier, as I actually work for living, I had a full day of patients, I had to take care of the pleadings going to 2 federal district courts and the Supreme Court and I had to make sure 4 men in my family (my husband and 3 sons) don’t go hungry. Now I have some time to respond.
The jist of critique is that I bring forward alternative theories and raise questions about the Sandy Hook shooting, such as:
a. what happened to two other men, who were detained by the police at the site
b. why police is not talking about the fact that Lanza was a student at that school and that his mother fought the district
c. typically a shooter committing murder-suicide would try to send a message, tell the world something, like it was with the Unibomber. It made no sense for someone who wants to leave a message to destroy his computers
d. Why the police did not find any medications in the house, no record of treatment by a psychiatrist or psychologist, nobody ever heard of prior incidents of aggression of this crazy person?
e. there are questions about the weapons used: apparently the murders were committed with an assault weapon, but he had 2 handguns on him and the assault weapon was actually found in the car.
I could continue with questions, that brought about my scepticism of the official one lone shooter theory, but I decided to do something different. I am posting an interview with Oliver Stone. Stone openly questions the official Lee Harvey Oswald lone shooter assassination of Kennedy theory.
So, when a far left guru like Oliver Stone comes up with questions and proposes an alternative theory, Huffington Post and the rest of the left to Lenin MSM is clapping and nodding and drooling all over, but when someone, who is not a liberal filmmaker, who is simply an attorney and a doctor, like myself, not on the far left and not on the far right, who is simply using her analytical thinking and asking reasonable questions and demands answers, that is somehow seen outlandish and crazy and outrageous.
You can see how lopsided and ridiculous this approach is.
Well, it is not about the political spectrum, it is about justice. If we do not find out the answers to our questions, we will see such tragedies happening again.
By the way, aside from the need of a detailed investigation and real transparency, and prosecution I do believe we need a complex approach to the problem at hand. I do believe we need to destigmatize the mental illness and there should be early testing. I do believe there should be some responsibility taken by the entertainment industry. We all know that sex and violence sells. Our young people are bombarded with video games and entertainment full of gratuitous sex and violence. So, as a result we see victims being dehumanised in murders and rapes.
We need to have a gun safety, but we also have to train people to bear arms and defend themselves. One armed teacher could prevent this tragedy. Switzerland has probably the most armed population, but has the lowest crime rate. Chicago has the strictest gun control laws, but has the highest crime rate. This is something to think about.
So, without much ado, here is the Oliver Stone clip, specifically for my buddies at the Huffington Post.
