Nutter alert: Former Dem rep blames Israel for terror attacks in Nice, Munich
In the finest tradition of Democrats spouting anti-Semitic conspiracies, former Democratic Representative Cynthia McKinney retweeted an article that suggested Israel was responsible for the terrorist attacks in Nice and Munich this month.
Apparently, a photographer covered both attacks so obviously, Israel was involved.
Same Israeli photographer captures Nice and Munich tragedies. How likely is that? Remember the Dancing Israelis?... https://t.co/QH2j9HqQHY— Cynthia McKinney PhD (@cynthiamckinney) July 24, 2016
The "dancing Israelis" refers to an internet myth that some Israelis celebrated the 91/1 attack.
The video she shared shows an article with the headline: "Same Israeli photo-propagandist pre-positioned in Nice AND NOW MUNICH."
Nice, France, and Munich, Germany, were the sites of terrorist attacks over the past several weeks.
The video refers to Richard Gutjahr, who photographed both attacks. The man narrating the video called it "sloppy" that the same person was placed at both sites.
"The fact that this guy happened to be at both, there's no way it's a coincidence," the man in the video said.
He went on to talk about Gutjahr's wife before coming to the conclusion that "it's 100 percent clear that Israel's fingerprints are all over these events."
The only thing that's "100% clear" is that McKinney is a conspiracy nut. The photographer in question, Richard Gutjahr, is a freelance journalist. As a freelancer, Gutjahr is obeying the first rule of the independent journalist; ride to the sound of the guns. Or, in this case, the bombs. Given his extensive experience in print and broadcast journalism, where else would you expect him to be when a story of international import became news? (Note: While the voice over in the video claims that video of the truck plowing into bystanders is Gutjahr's, it is not on his Twitter feed. Numerous media sources say that the video in question was posted on Twitter shortly after the attack.)
McKinney has been active in the "Free Gaza" movement and is a 9/11 truther. It's no surprise she should advance a completely fraudulent narrative about recent terrorist attacks. She has made a career of making scapegoats of Jews. Why should she stop now?
