Johnetta Elzie, a St. Louis native who emerged as a Black Lives Matter leader during the Ferguson protests has proposed that the Dallas police ambush was a conspiracy designed to make the Black Lives Matter movement look bad.
On Friday, July 8th, Ms. Elzie made the following tweets:
"From my experience, whenever public opinion shifts to strongly support the movement an act of violence against the police happens." … "It happened in Ferguson last year, and like many Ferguson protesters have pointed out today, a random black person becomes the shooter." … "I will not let go of the fact that i know cointelpro exist."
Elzie is reportedly a co-founder of Mappingpoliceviolence.org.
Ms. Elzie's suspicions are not without precedent. During President Kennedy's administration the Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed a false flag operation, where many innocent civilians would be killed and blamed on Cuba to justify going to war with them. The term false flag describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.
President Kennedy rejected the Joint Chiefs false flag plan, but the fact that the plan was submitted suggest that similiar plans had been executed in the past or might later be approved. Any chess player knows that you willingly sacrafice pawns to win the game or protect the king. Were Dallas police officers pawns in a high stakes chess game?
The Gulf of Tonkin Incident occurred in 1964 whereby the CIA conducted operations reported by the NSA as North Vietnamese aggression towards the United States. The incident was used as a pretext for the United States to escalate Vietnam War efforts. During the operations on August 2nd, 1964 USS Maddox provoked the North Vietnamese by entering restricted waters. Then, on August 4th, 1964, it was reported that North Vietnam attacked two US ships, USS Maddox and USS Turner Joy. The claim that the ships were attacked was later discovered to be false and in 2005 declassified documents revealed that both the CIA and NSA were involved in the manufacture of the incidents that led to US air strikes on August 7th, 1964.
If Ms. Elzie's theory is correct it may take decades for any information to become public and the world may never know the truth. Her suspicions will most likely go down in the annals of crazy conspiracy theory, but it might be wise to see if the pattern continues.
Also consider the fact that there has been a serious propaganda campaign to smear Muslims. After Muhammad Ali died, tribute was paid to the world's most famous Muslim. Ali's memorial service, which had shown the Muslim faith in a very positive light, was attended by heads of state and celebrities. In less than two days after Ali's funeral, in Orlando, a random Muslim man committed the worst single person mass shooting in U.S. history; just food for thought.
