Debunking Pizzagate

After successfully electing a vile, racist bigot to the Presidency, the alt right has had to find new ways to satisfy their twisted needs. Sending the country into a state of chaos under a Trump Presidency was not enough to get back at progressives – now they are going one step further and accusing respected Democrat politicians of being involved in pedophilia and satanic rituals! The Pizzagate conspiracy theory has taken the internet by storm, grabbing the attention of even respected media outlets such as the New York Times, and eventually forcing Reddit to shut down threads related to the discussion to prevent witch hunts of innocent people.

It all started with the stolen and most likely modified Wikileaks documents, which were released by the Russians in order to rig our elections. In one of the emails, John Podesta, Hillary’s former campaign manger mentions attending a benign ‘Spirit Cooking’ dinner with well-known and highly acclaimed modern artist, Marina Abramovic. Marina has stated in multiple interviews that she performs mock satanic rituals as a form of artwork, but nevertheless the alt right jumped on this email and immediately insinuated that Podesta was a dedicated and hardcore satanist.

After this initial smear attempt wore off with minimal impact, the alt right began desperately scrutinizing the Podesta brothers’ avant garde art collection which happens to include a couple of works depicting children is somewhat compromizing positions. When that didn’t gain any traction either, the alt right tried to tie the Podestas to a Pizza restaurant called ‘Comet Ping Pong’, who’s owner, a friend of Podesta who features in some of the emails, happened to post a couple of questionable pictures of children on his Instagram. The restaurant is supposedly opposite another restaurant that uses a ‘known’ FBI sign for pedophile rings as its logo, and conspiracy theorists outrageously claim that it is secretly housing a pedophile ring! The conspiracy theorists claim that the words pizza, pasta and cheese are code used to discuss violating children, and that many of the conversations between Podesta and others are actually about engaging in pedophilia!

Anyone with a brain and common sense can see that this is a ludicrously far-fetched conspiracy theory, but sadly in the age of the alternative media, conspiracy theories are allowed to run wild on the unregulated internet, hurting innocent people and smearing many respected public figures in the process. It’s time to put an end to this madness, and start putting bans on damaging lies that irresponsible basement dwellers construe as fact. We have to come to terms with the fact that the internet simply has to be regulated, or society as we know it may truly fall apart.

It was a joke for goodness’ sake! They were discussing playing a game of dominoes with pieces of cheese or pieces of pasta! Why does the alt right have to turn EVERYTHING into a sinister conspiracy theory?

I find it quite childish and irresponsible that these Trump supporting goons have concocted such a bizarre scandal from nothing, and INNOCENT people like the employees of Comet Ping Pong are now being harassed and threatened. These fake news websites need to be stopped!

Agree completely. This is the definition of a nothingburger. That being said, I was offended by the picture of the Comet Ping Pong Owner posing with a small white child with the hashtag “#chickenlover.” I’m not sure if this is a veiled racist statement against POC or a poor attempt at cultural appropriation. This should be investigated further.

Sorry I can’t say more, I am busy preparing dominoes with walnut sauce on a handkerchief map right now.

Yup it’s disgusting and really demonstrates the alt right’s willingness to make up whatever they have to in order to smear progressives and oppress women and people of color. Horrible, horrible people.

This is another example of the right trying to criminalize normal behavior.

Your suspicions of foul-play have been pretty much confirmed by an article in the Washington Post (which is already fact-checked):

The alt-right Trump people are “useful idiots” for Russian propagandists and hackers.

It’s been confirmed by multiple accredited sources – the Russians are behind Pizzagate just like they were behind the Wikileaks documents. This is all designed to undermine trust in our government – we need to show these Russian bastards that we won’t be manipulated by standing behind our officials 100% and refusing to buy into conspiracy theories!

I would support new laws, giving jail time to anyone who says something later proven to be false!! We need to lock those alt right racists into cages.

We need to have some kind of oath like: “Do you now read, or have you ever read, Russian media propaganda, as defined by Propornot.com?”

We need to purge the government, the military, and the media. And we need to blackball these people so they can never get influential jobs again. If they commit perjury, they go to prison. Americans have to quit thinking they can read articles by Wikileaks and other enemies of the United States, and get away with it.

I myself used to read Zero Hedge till it was unmasked by Propornot and rated Five Shadies. Now I feel so cheap. Don’t let it happen to you!

If we could arrest everyone who writes at zerohedge and give them all life sentences, it would send a powerful message that you cannot simply write anything you think of without consequences.
