The Right-Wing Conspiracy Theory That May Have Motivated The LAX Shooter
We know that notes found on the shooter portrayed someone who bought in to the concept of NWO or New World Order’.
FBI officials got a warrant on Monday to search the cellphone of Paul Ciancia, the 23-year-old suspected shooter who killed a Transportation Security Agency (TSA) guard last week at LAX. The FBI is searchingfor material on Ciancia’s “views on the legitimacy or activities of the United States Government, including the existence of a plot to impose a New World Order.”
…A note that Ciancia carried with him ranted against the TSA, stating that the searches the agency carried out were in violation of the Constitution. He also railed against Janet Napolitano, the former head of the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the TSA. The note also mentioned the “NWO,” the moniker for New World Order. That conspiracy theory, popular on the fringes of the right, claims “that global elites are plotting to form a socialistic ‘one-world government’ that would crush American freedoms,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
