Newtown troofers vs. an American hero

Gene Rosen sheltered six little children during the Sandy Hook massacre.  Now the conspiracy theorists are destroying his life:

A man who found six children in his driveway in Newtown, Conn., after their teacher had been shot and killed in last month’s school massacre has become the target of conspiracy theorists who believe the shootings were staged.

“I don’t know what to do,” Gene Rosen told “I’m getting hang-up calls, I’m getting some calls, I’m getting emails with, not direct threats, but accusations that I’m lying, that I’m a crisis actor, ‘How much am I being paid?’”

Rosen, a 69-year-old retired psychologist who lives near Sandy Hook Elementary School where the shootings took place, says his inbox is filled with emails like this one:

How are all those little students doing? You know, the ones that showed up at your house after the ‘shooting’. What is the going rate for getting involved in a gov’t sponsored hoax anyway?

“The quantity of the material is overwhelming,” Rosen said, adding that he’s sought the advice of a retired state police officer and plans to alert the FBI.


Rosen took the four girls and two boys—students of slain teacher Victoria Soto—into his home, gave them toys and comforted them while he tried to reach their parents. He spent the days following the massacre telling his story to the swarming media that invaded the small Connecticut town in the wake of the shootings.

“I wanted to speak about the bravery of the children,” Rosen told Salon. “I guess I kind of opened myself up to this.”

A quick Web search for Rosen’s name reveals some of what he’s opened himself up to: Appearing online are photos of his home, his address and phone number, several fake YouTube accounts and plenty of conspiracy theories.

There are no words that properly express how much I despise these people, some of whom are teaching our kids.

    A large majority of these conspiracy theorist come from my state. They set up in another state that has a lot of Indian land where they can hide and harass I assume. They always have a cause to rally the vigilantes into stalking and bullying people. It’s difficult to tell which cause they are rallying around.

    If someone shines a spotlight on your roof then drives by with a mylar cutout of an assault rifle, you may think they are going to kill you. Or, could it be they are trying to rally citizens into their cause? When they jump the fence to check on you pet, are they really concerned citizens or merely looking to kill your animal? When they leave their religious pamphlets in places they should never be, are they really “God’s people” or drugged out terrorists? When they bash anyone who thinks what they are doing is anything more than extortion, they come back with some money saving efforts intended to save everyone tax dollars.

    Cointel? STalker and extortionist? They are always attached to someone that profits from the terror.

    They post online about gun rights and most of their commenters are merely afraid someone will steal their Harley. Without their Harley they can’t put on the dog and pony show of locating missing children in which every home will receive a stuff animal and a strange brick.

    Their charities extend to helping storm victims by rushing in to photograph and causing traffic accidents. Soon after I am sure the victims will receive some of their “literature” that lets them know what “God fearing” people they really are. You may find it when changing a flat, looking for a VCR movie, looking for a book on your bookshelf,etc. If you don’t like the total invasion of privacy, having your friends and family members threatened, death threats to yourself, and having your neighbors harassed, then you must be a hypocrite.

    They stalk at the grocery store. They stalk and investigate your doctor. They investigate your mail if they think you may receive a check from the insurance company. They investigate your agent. Their goal is to spread “Christianity” to the drug rings they haul in….after they’ve worked them to death recovering from the storms that is.

    Do you know for a fact that the “troofers” (as you call them) are not classic agit-prop out to harm the rep of Rosen or others? Sounds much more like an “Occupy” stunt by ‘tards in the mold of Brynaert, Rauhauser or Kimberlin. Rosen is indeed being ‘had,’ but we don’t know by whom yet, do we, nor for what purpose?

    Furthermore, it isn’t “some of whom” plural but one lone nutter called Tracey “teaching” our kids – so why the specious plural?

    There is vastly more to the bigger picture.
