Sandy Hook Shooter Adam Lanza’s Mother Was A Paranoid Survivalist

Via the Independent, when preparation for civilization’s breakdown becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy:

The mother of Adam Lanza, the gunman who killed 20 children and six adults in one of America’s worst ever school massacres, was a “survivalist” preparing for economic and social collapse, it has emerged.

Nancy Lanza was a so-called ‘prepper’, part of the survivalist movement which urges individuals to prepare for the breakdown of society by training with weapons and hoarding food and other supplies. Mrs Lanza is thought to have trained her sons to shoot, taking them to local ranges.

Friends and family have portrayed Mrs. Lanza as a paranoid [individual] who believed the world was on the brink of violent collapse. “She prepared for the worst,” her sister-in-law Marsha Lanza told the Chicago Sun-Times, saying Nancy repeatedly talked about her preparations for the economic and social meltdown.

    when Wall Street hedges it’s bets
    and even bets on disaster
    it’s called due diligence & fiduciary responsibility
    when a person does it
    it’s call “prepping”

    interesting slant of the article
    what message would Big Homelander like to convey?
    something like
    go back to sheep amerika

    Yeah right! It was a FALSE FLAG OPERATION!

    • Lee Swain | Dec 21, 2012 at 10:20 am |

      Can we also shut up with this false flag idiocy? How about you try and display a single shred of credible and logical evidence that this is the case?

      Anyway shouldn’t you be hiding under a bed or something waiting for the end of the world?

      • Opposite Day | Dec 21, 2012 at 11:16 am |

        Keep an open mind. Governments love to cause problems so they can create the solutions. Then they can easily push through policy that’s unpopular. False flag theories are not idiocy, they are historically correct.

      • It is too be expected to anyone who isn’t blinkered and blinded. 9/11,
        Gulf of Tonkin, Operation Gladio, Northwoods, U.S.S Liberty, OKC,
        Seattle WTO Riots, Fast and Furious, WACO. See a pattern emerging?

        • This man wants you to see a pattern too.

          • Appeal to ridicule fallacy all you got echar?

          • Playing the martyr. *yawn*

          • Equivocating pattern recognition with mental illness. Serves the needs of state very well then. Reminds me of 2001 Best Picture, A Beautiful Mind. Don’t think conspiratorially guys, even the best and brightest can succumb to this disease and court ruin. Eventually your lying eyes will become clear and a golden pen/star/button/shrapnel awaits your eventual confession, this is poetic license but demonstrating a real and related concept. Paint the stereotypical portraits and the water cooler is festooned with buffoons to play out their cognitively dissonant anxieties upon the ‘outsider’, JOCK, NERD, GOTH, EASY LABEL! Just like high school all over again but with a sick adult twist, CONSPIRACY THEORIST! DENIER! ANTI-SEMITE (Oh the Khazar Irony) The monkey mind hopped up on fear conditioning and repeated *timely* ( let’s do the kick of for the war right before the Super Bowl!) cyclical injections. Aren’t “they” saying his mom was a dooms day prepping home schooler who at first worked at the school, then only a substitute and then not at all, oh and about the weapons that supposedly pulled this off, it was in the trunk when we found the Ar 15, but never mind, I’m sure he did it all and then inexplicably put the “murder” weapon in the trunk of his car, before going back in to off himself. Never mind the reports of multiple shooters, suspects, the oddities, intentional and otherwise to muddy the details and minds looking in. We are all living the under-lying messages. Give us your power, you don’t need rights, rights are scary things abused by the zombies we put in play and their wealthy soccer mom matrons. Just give them up, look here is Michelle Obama to tell you that Obama Hitler will do everything in his power to “Change” it up, NDAA style. Connection seers and outcast heretics can get the Bradley Manning treatment for all we care, nothing to see here folks, stay glued to your glowing rectangles for the latest updates, here is another zombie marathon to subconsciously prepare you for our manufactured Armageddon.

          • Who said anything about mental illness? I listed that video to illustrate what I experience as most if not all conspiracy theorists do. They pick and choose to show what they want to see. If you took that as ridicule, than it may do you some good to understand why. Although I doubt anyone could take an honest look when hindered by lists of reasons why they are in the right.

            FYI: I don’t see that guy as mentally ill, I see him as self serving and deceptive.

          • What I mean is that all too often, people are divided into false dichotomies such as there are no false flags, and anyone who sees these patterns is a nincompoop. I mean you linked to this video right ”

            So if you didn’t mean to disparage all of conspiracy theory, what exactly was your intention in posting it?

          • oh, you haven’t made up your mind already?

          You said it dude! You have to be drunk on corporate media to not be suspicious. If people would take the time to look up Cameron’s conspiracies… They would be revolted by the hideous nature of the US govt. Time and time again they have proven to be Wizard behind the curtains. I honestly don’t know what’s more shocking… That the US is committing these acts against their own people… Or that the majority buy it -hook, line and sinker everytime?
          And what’s up with this site? I thought they specialized in conspiracy not propaganda!

          • Cheers. Yes I agree it’s time people stop pretending that everything is hunky dory in status q land. Disinfo presents multiple sides on serious issues and let’s the fans throw down in the comments in my experience.

        • InfvoCuernos | Dec 21, 2012 at 7:51 pm |

          heck, you aren’t even naming all of them-Remember the Maine, the Lusitania, the Zimmermann Telegram- just about every war the US has been involved in in the last 100+ years. Some might even say that Pearl Harbor, while not a false flag, was not the surprise to the govt. that it was to the sailors that went to the bottom of that harbor.

        • Calypso_1 | Dec 21, 2012 at 9:27 pm |

          I believe i understand why you listed all of those but i think a few fall outside of more exacting definitions of false flag.

    • Question is, by whom?

      Isn’t it strange that the NRA comes out and starts demanding that guns be legal in schools?

      Think: trigger an “autistic” guy to shoot up 26 “liberals” and “future liberals” (6 public school employees, 20 students), then kills himself. A fully successful gun lobby, having seen “conceal and carry” become the law of ALL 50 states (Illinois had their ban rendered unconstitutional by a judge), are now spying on getting their guns in places where they’re now banned – Hospitals, Schools, Churches and Homes that put up signs saying “No Guns Allowed Here.” So…now the next step in their drive.

      Consider: A Republican representative in Minnesota is talking about a law banning the ability to ban guns from one’s premises. And in Michigan, the governor vetoes a law that would ban the banning of guns in hospitals and schools.

      Then the NRA comes out and says “Put Guns In Schools” on the assumption that armed teachers would have shot the gunman.

      Never mind that two armed men were unable to stop the slaughter of 15 students in Columbine (the slaughter was stopped the the gunner themselves, with themselves and the final targets)…nor did it stop Fort Mead, workplace of lots of armed men. But you know, “an armed society is a polite society,” right?

      Like I said, by whom?

  4. Lee Swain | Dec 21, 2012 at 10:19 am |

    I don’t think Wall Street hedging its bets is quite the same as stocking up on food and guns in case the economy collapses! Being a money hungry scum bag within a system that rewards that behaviour is bad yes, but not in any way a useful comparison to someone acting crazy.

    You sound like you are defending this women like she was the smart one and not one of the “sheeple”. When clearly she (and pretty much anyone who stocks up on guns and food for a perceived impending societal collapse) had some issues of paranoid delusion. And those issues served to help imbalance her son who she was raising to also be prepared for her paranoid delusion!

  5. Being paranoid simply means you are paying attention.

    • Sometimes, but not always.

    • Opposite Day | Dec 21, 2012 at 11:42 am |

      Or you just smoked too much pot…

    • Free Radio Revolution | Dec 21, 2012 at 3:44 pm |

      Unfortunately…. You’re right!

    • Calypso_1 | Dec 21, 2012 at 9:50 pm |

      There are many ways to pay attention without experiencing paranoia.

      • Yeah, he probably should have said “Being labeled paranoid simply…”

        I gave him a “like” anyhow.

        • Calypso_1 | Dec 22, 2012 at 12:17 am |

          I understood the sentiment but i also understand how gripping & twisting the world of paranoia is. My statement was not a mere counter but a hard fought personal truth. Even when the label is applied as a pejorative the target often knows something of the actual feeling, spanning from hyperawareness of potential threat to pathological delusions. It is a difficult sensory awareness to manage, especially long term. With all the malignant agencies present in the world that have potential to harm, learning to disempower their effect on your internal state can be one of the most liberating acts possible.

  6. CosmicAmazing | Dec 21, 2012 at 10:56 am |

    There is nothing wrong with being prepared, informed and awake. We don’t know what really happened anyways. We can believe what the media says, we can believe what crazy face Jones says, and we can speculate. But no one knows the exact events that lead up to Adam Lanza shooting all those Innocents. All we do know is that this tragedy is being exploited for political purposes. Agenda’s will be pushed, and our rights will be trampled on once more.

  7. Sad story. I prepare to evacuate in case of a natural disaster, but that’s just 5 days specialized food supply, water for 3 people,warm clothes, flashlights, batteries, radio, a couple of blades, some tools,cash in small denominations, a first aid kit, and hygiene products like paper towels, tooth brush and soap, but that’s it, No guns. If shit really hits the fan, there is no way to survive for a long period. People feel so self important and just want to protect their nuclear family from the rest of us and end up becoming the zombies themselves. If you really want to prep, try being nice to people and sharing what you have now to prevent things from falling apart. Universal love is the only way out of this global dilemma.

  8. *According to mainstream media reports which have gotten every important detail wrong in the last week.

    How nice, they can smear “preppers”, home schoolers, and the 2nd ammendment all in one fell swoop!

    • This serves the presupposition, that “they” (the mainstream media) have some sort of sway over the masses. Do you work for “them” consciously, or subconsciously?

      I have all day… No I lied, I don’t care.

      • The problem with mainstream and they sway is that the average american citizen is too lazy to do anything other than just accept what is said and go back to whatever reality garbage they are watching.

        • On the contrary, My experience is that the average person doesn’t care. They just want to be left alone to do their thing, and they have other fish to fry. Most likely they think people like us , who visit sites like this create our own problems.

          • “Most likely they think people like us , who visit sites like this create our own problems”

            Yeah, you hit the nail on the head there.

            Though most have never read it, they’re quite likely to follow the advice from the _Epic of Gilgamesh_ to be content in life with the pleasures of hearth and home.

          • Calypso_1 | Dec 22, 2012 at 12:59 am |

            That wasn’t the sentiment from Gilgamesh that stayed with me but rather this:

            “All that is left to one who grieves
            Is convalescence.
            No change of heart or spiritual
            Conversion, for the heart has changed
            And the soul has been converted
            To a thing that sees
            How much it costs to lose a friend it loved.”

          • As always, well said Zenc. A most appropriate cautionary tale. “For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking,
            marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark;” -Matthew 24:38 anybody notice my “Cosmic Patterns and Cycles of Catastrophe” post? Just saying…

      • You don’t think the mainstream media has a sway on the mind of the masses?
        Do you think companies spend billions of dollars on advertising for the thrill alone?

        • I don’t know, and maybe. What I do know is that a meme can support what it is for and against. you know, the “there’s no such thing as bad publicity” saying. If this is understood, than one could say those that rail against with such vitriol are really just propping up the idea. Perhaps more than those who are for it.

        • Let’s all go line up for $2 waffle makers on black friday! Somebody is getting tazed, killed, thrilled and saving a ton!! How did those people get there?

  9. HengFighter | Dec 21, 2012 at 12:54 pm |

    totally agree with you, CosmicAmazing. of course you can’t survive forever if shit REALLY hits the fan,
    but you have a chance to survive at least for a while hoping that things will be under control eventually.
    if not, well, we all have to die sooner or later. but that the gov’t is pushing its agenda big time is obvious.
    they don’t want US to be prepared – or to have guns to defend ourselves from all kinds of jerks who will crawl out to take advantage of the chaos and the confusion. they want to be in full control when it happens.

    Rich white paranoid lunatic living in idyllic suburban neighborhood teaches her emotionally/psychologically disturbed son that their world is crumbling and you should be prepared to blow people away with the arsenal she’s building.

  11. DeepCough | Dec 21, 2012 at 2:21 pm |

    I was just thinking: on the one hand, this explanation of Adam Lanza’s violence makes sense; on the other hand, it makes way too much sense……

  12. Bruteloop | Dec 21, 2012 at 4:45 pm |

    Prepared for what? A race war? The government corralling citizens into compounds? The son she so diligently taught to kill killing her?

  13. Well it appears that Nancy Lanza’s apocalyptic prediction of a violent end was correct for her, as her son killed her with her own weapons. I’d call this an indirect self-fulfilled prophecy.

  14. There isn’t a shred of evidence presented in this article that she was “paranoid”. Unless your logic is that all survivalists are paranoid, which isn’t logic at all.
