Was the Charlie Hebdo massacre a false flag operation? The Ron Paul Institute thinks so. Believing that Muslims were hired by the French government to kill cartoonists in order for the government to pass PATRIOT Act style legislation in France is crazy. It’s almost as crazy as believing that 9/11 was caused by George Bush because he’s evil. Of course, Rand Paul would never engage in this kind of crazy conspiratorial thinking. This is the product of his father and has nothing to do with him.
