Did Family Guy Predict the Boston Bombings?

If so, does that mean The Simpsons were right about the 9/11 WTC bombings? You decide…

  1. This clip is actually disinformation. It consists of two separate fragments of two different episode, combined as one.

    • The clip is predictive programming edited to suggest the original was predictive programming.

      Spend a few minutes to check facts before posting. Don’t believe every pop media story you read. Those precautions will keep you from looking foolish in the future. You are welcome.

    That is two clips from completely different episodes creatively edited together to fit the circumstances. You do realize that, right?

    Edit: Ok, I was wrong about it being from two episodes. It was the same episode, but the two clips are unrelated story lines.

    Anybody can download a torrent of the file of that episode published before yesterday here:

  4. It’s been debunked already:

    A clip purporting to be from a March 17 episode of Fox’s animated comedy Family Guy was edited to suggest the show depicted the bombing of the Boston Marathon, representatives for the show have confirmed to EW.

    “The edited Family Guy clip currently circulating is abhorrent. The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims,” show creator Seth Macfarlane tweeted today…

      You think this is abhorrent, you should see the “Sandy Hoax” documentaries.

    Man, some of the bullshit that gets posted here is disgusting sometimes. It’s truly a shame that SOURCES are barely considered.. like every high schooler is taught, one should always properly source one’s material. Youtube doesn’t count and if lots of the posters here are getting their information from Alex Jones, then maybe I need to stop considering Disinfo as a place for interesting and usually well-thought out ideas.

      I agree. You would feel much safer and more comfortable patronizing a website without “DisInfo” in the title. Good decision.

  6. Rex Vestri This IS the same episode…. The two clips are not in a row in the episode, but still the SAME one. One is scene starts around time-code 3:33 the other is around 15:04.

    Even the link Majestic posted states the… “scenes appeared separately in the Family Guy episode, titled “Turban Cowboy,” and were not connected in the show’s plot line as the viral video suggests.” Both clips do come from the same episode.

    Not sure how this has been “debunked.” Yes the clip was edited to show the two parts of an episode all about sleeper cell terrorists. But it’s still one episode with both the Boston marathon and a terrorist setting off 2 bombs.

    Why is everyone falling for this blatant non-sense!? Here’s the real clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcVqZl5JBBo

    The video itself is spitting in the face of people who are calling this bombing a false-flag event, and so I assume it was created by angry sheeple or one of the many insider associates.

  10. Remember this?

    It’s a coincidence.

    It’s a pretty weird coincidence. Remember this?

  12. This is just stupid, obviously a mashup. I thought this site was supposed to be about thought provoking articles.
