John Guandolo: Synagogue Shooting Was a Marxist/Jihadi Operation

John Guandolo, the disgraced former FBI agent and right-wing conspiracy theorist who now trains law enforcement agencies around the country to identify seemingly anyone with dark skin and a beard as an Islamic terrorist, appeared on “The Alex Jones Show” yesterday to promote his theory that the recent deadly attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh was really a Marxist/Jihadi operation.

Guandolo, who has been suspended from Twitter for claiming that the shooting was carried out by a Marxist Democrat, told Jones that the attack, like the recent spate of mail bombs that had been sent to prominent Democrats, was part of a massive disinformation campaign.

“[Shooter Robert Bowers was] quoted as saying … that this is for the genocide that is being done to our people or my people and so we need to kill all the Jews,” Guandolo said. “So the question is: who’s his people? Because the only people being accusing of having a genocide committed against them by Jews are Palestinians, are Hamas. So was he identifying himself as part of Hamas? That’s just an investigative question that hasn’t been asked.”

Guandolo’s suggestion that Bowers was some sort of Islamic radical is absurd, as all reports suggest that Bowers was a rabid anti-semite who was worried about a “white genocide” in which Jews and immigrants are supposedly plotting to take over America and eliminate the white race.

The fact that Muslims raised more than $100,000 for the victims of this shooting is a sign that this is all an orchestrated disinformation campaign, Guandolo claimed.

“They’re counting on the fact that, historically, the bigger the lie, the more people will buy it,” Guandolo said. “Why did the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh—a known Jihadi organization, Muslim Brotherhood—say they’re raising money for a Jewish synagogue? There’s a reason behind it and in each case, it’s to create an information campaign, or build on an information campaign to deceive the public.”

“I think what people are having a hard time grasping is that the leadership of the Jihadi and the Marxist movements are actually sitting in rooms discussing next steps for the strategy,” he added. “I think it’s going to become more violent. Remember, the Marxists are the tool for the Islamic movement, so while you have the Marxists shooting people and killing people, the Muslims are saying they’re going to present a $100,000 check. The Marxists are the tool for the Jihadi movement and they have been for some time and it’s only going to get worse.”
