Wendy Rogers and Nick Fuentes, two prominent right-wing influencers, suggested Saturday that the racially-motivated mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, could be a false flag operation. Ten people were fatally shot inside a Tops Friendly Market north of downtown Buffalo Saturday afternoon, and officials have said the suspected shooter is believed to have been motivated by racial animosity. Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers, who is endorsed for reelection by former President Donald Trump, wrote in a Gettr post Saturday that "fed boy summer has started in Buffalo," referring to the theory among some right-wingers that FBI agents are behind acts of violence and are seeking to blame conservatives. Meanwhile, Nick Fuentes, a right-wing political commentator, who has been classified as a white nationalist by the Southern Poverty Law Center, described the shooting as a "new false flag" in a Saturday post on Telegram.
