False flag in the making?
May 29, 2013
A gun rights supporter allegedly sent two letters containing the poison ricin to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the director of his Mayors Against Illegal Guns campaign, Mark Glaze, according to reports.
The letters are said to make references to Bloomberg’s gun control efforts, saying something to the effect of, “This is a taste of what’s to come if you come to take my gun,” although law enforcement, for some reason, is not releasing the exact wording.
“The FBI has an investigation ongoing and so things like the exact wording and the postmarks, etc. we’re not going to disclose,” NYPD deputy commissioner Paul Browne told CBS News stations WCBS 880 and 1010 WINS.
According to the New York Times, Mr. Browne did eventually state the letters “bore the same postmark…indicating they had been sent from roughly the same time and place,” and even went on to divulge “‘something about the way it was addressed’ raised suspicion about the letter sent to New York.”
New York Daily News reports that the letter addressed to Bloomberg arrived at the city’s mail center and, miraculously, “was flagged by a worker who deemed it suspicious.”
Some personnel who came in contact with the letters were evidently afflicted by mild illness. “Nobody was hurt,” NY Daily News said, adding, “but three members of the NYPD Emergency Service Unit who handled the letter Friday came down the next day with mild diarrhea — a symptom of ricin exposure.”
Bloomberg took the opportunity, after his life had apparently been spared, to — push for more gun control, of course. “There’s 12,000 people that are going to get killed this year with guns and 19,000 that are going to commit suicide with guns, and we’re not going to walk away from those efforts. And I know I speak for all of the close to 1,000 mayors,” stated the mayor at a museum gala Wednesday night. “This is a scourge on the country that we just have to make sure that we get under control and eliminate.”
The poison letter pattern began back in April when Republican Senator Roger Wicker received a letter that tested positive for the same deadly substance.
In April, Infowars and Prison Planet editor Steve Watson noted how Sen. Wicker had been fiercely critical of gun control legislation, yet voted to block a filibuster on the issue.
Because of his vote to end the filibuster, some suggested Wicker may have been targeted by an extremist right wing pro-gun group or individual.
Politico reported that the ricin letter contained a warning that read “You haven’t listen to me before. Now you will, even if people have to die.”
An FBI bulletin obtained by Fox News also stated that the letter contained the sentence “To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”
Both letters were reportedly signed, “I am KC and I approve this message.”
The same bulletin also noted that a second letter containing the same phrase was also sent to the president. It is not clear whether the letter to Obama also contained ricin.
As Watson predicted, once the incident couldn’t be linked to a right-wing extremist or the Boston bombing attack, the story faded from headlines. The man accused, Paul Kevin Curtis, turned out to be an Obama supporter and was eventually acquitted of all charges. His lawyer said he had been framed.
“The timing of the attempted attack on Senator Wicker, just one day after the bombing in Boston, has recalled the 2001 anthrax attacks, where deadly letters were sent to elected representatives and newsrooms in the days following 9/11,” Watson wrote in April.
“The FBI’s official narrative on those attacks has since been proven extremely doubtful at best, and has been seriously questioned by leading scientists and world authorities on the composition of Anthrax.”
Conveniently, little effort is needed to blame this recent bout of poison letters on gun rights advocates. Time shall tell if the letter’s supposed contents lead to any sort of anti-gun legislation or laws geared at further destroying what little civil liberties we have left.
