Trump's 'plane loaded with thugs' conspiracy theory matches months-old rumor

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: NBC News

The conspiracy theory that President Donald Trump pushed Monday that a plane “almost completely loaded with thugs” had been set to disrupt the Republican National Convention was almost identical to a rumor that went viral on Facebook three months ago.

In an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Trump claimed that “we had somebody get on a plane from a certain city this weekend, and in the plane it was almost completely loaded with thugs, wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms, with gear and this and that.”

He then claimed the matter was “under investigation right now.”

There is no evidence of any such flight. When Ingraham asked for more information about the flight, the president said, "I'll tell you sometime." He then alleged the people had been headed to Washington to disrupt the RNC.

1. A plane loaded with thugs going to a convention that did not happen? ... The fucker is nutz.

On Morning Joe, they just showed part of trump's interview with Laura Ingraham

Trump was going full out racist, without any subtly

He was effectively saying let's bring back redlining to keep blacks out of the suburbs to protect our women

I have no words to express what a disgusting human being he is

and then in that interview he starts going batshit crazy talking about airplanes with thugs going to interrupt the Convention.

3. So trump is saying that thugs flew to his "convention"

with weapons and gear to incite violence. But I can't get on a plane with over 3 OZ of shampoo?

7. Projection. Always.

Revealing his plan to steal the election. Thugs. In suits. Brooks Bros. Rebellion again.

Setting up false narratives seems to be a predilection and a specialty. A con man fools the people. That's his most joyous fun.

8. Oh FFS...

"They had uniforms and gear and this and that... I'll tell you sometime."

He sure as hell knows his audience. Make a claim, with ZERO evidence, and it becomes unassailable truth because is comes from HIS mouth.

It's been said time and time again until it is cliché. But this is a cult. This is Goebbels-level propaganda. However the transition of power happens, it certainly is not going to be peaceful.

10. Recommended.

This actually has some truth to it. In the early 1600s, a plane of Democratic thug activists disappeared while flying over the Bermuda Triangle. In the 400 years since, the ghosts of the missing thugs have appeared in the nightmares of paranoid republicans, most recently Richard Nixon and Donald Trump. The first siting of this danger -- call it a premonition, if you will -- cqan be found in Christopher Columbus's lost journal, from February 31, 1492, when the thugs warned him to beware of antifa and Black Lives Matter.

I swea that this is as factually accurate as Trump's claim.

16. Aren't thugs but good decent American citizens flying on a totally innocent trip doing their ...

normal tasks (flying to families, work, for pleasure, etc.), the republican thugs will pick some plane and announce that they were the plane loaded w/ the fake thugs (like the fake pizza parlor in a NYC bsmt).

And how does one ID a plane load of thugs? With gear too, w/ no identifying marks provided, and if they were ID'ed, why in the hell is he sprouting off about a FBI investigation (or other agency), what were they doing criminally wrong?

What a moron, they wouldn't be able to board the planes w/ any of such 'equipment' that the MORON in chief is describing, so a LIE as well (and they weren't breaking any laws either simply wearing the dark uniforms blah blah blah). All fake.

What a lying MORONIC POS and PINO.

20. It's Qanon originated and bot spread. L. Lin Wood (Rittenhouse's lawyer) is a Qanon follower, too.

Check out Lin Wood's twitter feed to see how he spreads that stuff.

Fox News is probably the Qanon newsfeed by now, too.
