Over the last month following the tragedy of the Dec. 14 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Conn., a conspiracy theorist group called the Sandy Hook truther movement continues to be vocal about its claims of an apparent hoax to the dismay of many.

According to Gawker, an unknown conspiracy theorist behind one of the Sandy Hook truther videos addressed the group's rationale behind its outrageous claims, which for him began after the Sept. 11th attacks.

"[I]t all started when me and my friends used to research 9/11 in high school. That's what really got me started when it came to researching government cover ups [...] Once I learned about all the false flag attacks in history that have been proven to be true, I knew it was only a matter of time before another came along."

The "false flag attack" is considered a common belief among many conspiracy theorists, especially the Truthers of the 9/11 plot, who think that the United States government actually destroyed the twin towers in New York City and not Al Qaeda.

The unknown truther also gave his opinion on what he felt about the reactions of the reported victim's families.

"When Sandy Hook first happened I just had a feeling like it was all too perfect. I just had this feeling deep down that these people and the whole town had this artificial vibe about them."

While the information appears to be very extreme, the theory has increased in intensity across the Internet in recent days. A site called Sandy Hook Hoax, has even dedicated an entire section that reads "NO TEARS," which is devoted to families that are considered "insufficiently grief-stricken."

The truthers continue to believe that some of the family members of the individuals lost seem to be grieving in an artificial manner, which they feel is the cornerstone piece of "evidence" of a hoax.

The group also insists that there may have been some actors hired by the government in order to ante up the crisis alert, thus pushing the country to further support gun control laws.

However, the outrageous claims have angered many, who believe the group is being highly insensitive to the families of victims in the tragedy.

Toby746Callag wrote on Facebook: "These claims are horrendous. How dare these people disrespect the victims and families like this. How dare they!"

"This is crazy. How insensitive to the families of the victims suffering from this unspeakable tragedy!" one Twitter user commented.
