Stella Tremblay, an obscure New Hampshire legislator, has made a name for herself by stating that she believes the U.S. government may have orchestrated the Boston Marathon bombings as part of an elaborate “false flag” operation.
Last Friday, Tremblay, a Republican, posted on Glenn Beck’s Facebook wall that the Boston Marathon bombings were a false flag operation. The message was posted on Friday morning, before Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s arrest.
“Just as you said would happen. Top Down, Bottom UP. The Boston Marathon was a Black Ops ‘terrorist’ attack. One suspect killed, the other one will be too before they even have a chance to speak. Drones and now ‘terrorist’ attacks by our own Government. Sad day, but a "wake up" to all of us. First there was a ‘suspect’ then there wasnt [sic]. Infowars broke the story and they knew they had been ‘found out,”” Tremblay wrote.
Tremblay then linked to an Infowars.com video titled “Proof! Boston Marathon Bombing is Staged Terror Attack.” The video, posted by Infowars owner Alex Jones, claims that unknown black ops agents were behind the Boston Marathon bombings as a false flag attack.
After Tremblay’s assertions that the Boston Marathon bombings were a false flag came out, Foster’s Daily Democrat, a New Hampshire newspaper, spoke with Tremblay, where she explained that she became aware of the conspiracy theory when a constituent emailed her an Infowars video.
“I was with, it was one of my constituents that sent me an email, and it went to a site where a, I think it was a major retired Marine was speaking, and then he said, 'Please go to Infowars,' and they had pictures of, what is it, black ops? With black backpacks. They show them at the scene, so they knew something was going on, because there wouldn't have been that many of them,” Tremblay said.
The “black ops” members Tremblay mentioned refers to several men seen in near the Boston Marathon finish line wearing black backpacks, black shirts and hats featuring skulls. Infowars has alleged that these are Navy SEALs and therefore evidence that the Boston Marathon bombings were a false flag.
“There's just too many things going on that, to me, doesn't make any sense,” Tremblay continued.
Not surprisingly, Tremblay’s comments have been strongly criticized by the New Hampshire Democratic Party, which has called for other New Hampshire Republicans to publicly condemn Tremblay’s false flag accusations.
"Even for the New Hampshire Republican Party, which has become synonymous with the tea party and radical extremism, Representative Tremblay's claims are a new low," state Democratic Party spokesman Harrell Kirstein said in a statement to Foster's. "She is an embarrassment to the New Hampshire House of Representatives, to her constituents and to the entire state of New Hampshire."
Tremblay has previously made headlines after forwarding the entire New Hampshire House of Representatives (at 400 members the largest state chamber in the country) a link to a fake YouTube video doctored to show President Barack Obama saying he was not born in America, according to the Huffington Post. The doctored video was created by a site called ObamaSnippets.com two years before Tremblay sent it.
