The more I think about the large group of migrants who attempted to storm the border yesterday, the more I realize it made no sense at all from their perspective. After watching the videos and reading reports from both mainstream media and others close to the incident, I’ve come to the conclusion that it was staged.
Conspiracy theories aren’t my strong point. But this event seems way too fishy to be spontaneous. It’s the same alarm bells I heard in my head when the story from the White House after the Benghazi attack was that it was a spontaneous response to a YouTube video.
If migrants wanted to cross the border illegally, they wouldn’t do so in the middle of the day. They wouldn’t form a large group. They wouldn’t do it at a place where they were openly visible from multiple camera vantage points.
Many migrants have already successfully crossed the border illegally. They do so at night in small groups away from the cameras. Yesterday’s stunt was intended to draw a response from our border patrol and/or military to be played for the camera.
This was a PR move. They wanted to be hit with tear gas.
By “they,” I’m not referring to all of the migrants who participated. I’m sure most of them were manipulated, coerced, or forced to participate. In this case, we don’t know who “they” are other than the people orchestrating the events. This is where my conspiracy theory skills reach their limit. Others can point to George Soros or whoever. That’s above my paygrade.
We can see the effects of the staged event, it’s clear what motivated it. Most of mainstream media is whipping up support for the migrants by highlighting all the women and children pushed to the front lines to take the brunt of the gas. Outside of mainstream media, some outlets are already pointing out that the infamous fleeing mother and children was a staged photo.
There’s Good Reason to Believe the Viral Photo of Border Agents Gassing a Migrant Mother and Her Children Is Staged
It was every mainstream outlet’s dream. A photo that fills onlookers with dread about an awful situation, and Trump’s administration at the center of it.
However, for some, the photo seemed far TOO perfect. Upon looking deeper into the photo, many people began seeing things that looked far too suspect. By the time they were done dissecting it, it appeared more like the photo was staged and less like it was a horrific occurrence of warlike conditions at the border where families are involved.
#FakeNews Media all share same photo of “women & kids gassed”.
Perpetrators of invasion instantly become victims in new #FakeNews narrative.

Migrants “chose” to storm the border in broad daylight with cameras everywhere in a large group not far from the port of entry. It was staged. Mainstream media’s narrative is that this was a spontaneous, desperate move to escape oppression. Got it.
