Former state House Rep. Stella Tremblay made national headlines last year when she posted a message on Glenn Beck’s Facebook page declaring the Boston Marathon bombing was a “Black Ops terrorist attack" carried out by the U.S. government.
The Auburn Republican subsequently asserted bombing victim Jeff Bauman, who lost his legs in the attack, was part of the act. “He was not in shock. He was not in pain,” she said. “If I had had those type of injuries, I’d be screaming in agony.”
Tremblay’s Republican colleagues distanced themselves and condemned her comments. With Tremblay absent, the House unanimously passed a resolution honoring the victims of the bombing. Minority Leader Gene Chandler pointedly added, ” Any remarks made to the contrary are not representative of the New Hampshire House or the citizens of the Granite State.”
Two months later, Tremblay resigned from the House and left Auburn. She withdrew from public life but continues to espouse anti-government conspiracy theories.
Last night, Tremblay posted another message on Glenn Beck’s Facebook page. As before, she provided a link to an anti-government conspiracy video. “Great video of how Sandy Hook was a FEMA Capstone Event,” she wrote. The narrator of the 90-minute video describes the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting as an elaborate hoax, a sophisticated government disaster drill in which no one was hurt or killed.
