"Denver is scheduled to be the Western headquarters of the US New World Order during martial law take over," Icke wrote in his 1999 book, The Biggest Secret. "Other contacts who have been underground at the Denver Airport claim that there are large numbers of human slaves, many of them children, working there under the control of the reptilians."

I think that pizzagate is an attempt by tge Vatican to delegitimize child sex abuse investigations while at the same time disrupting the worldwide dominance of American-style pizza. Think about it: pizzagate theories began to circulate after Spotlight won Best Picture and as Netflix was preparing The Keepers, a 7-part documentary detailing the church's involvement in child rape. And have you seen the internet commentsfrom Italians about American variations on Italian cuisine? They passionately hate our freedom. What better revenge than to reframe pizza iconography as the secret language of the pedophile? It would make normal people afraid to share their love of pizza while at the same time throwing the scent off the real pedos, the Catholic Church.

how's life, Tuesday, 2 January 2018 10:59 (eight months ago) Permalink

Pizzagate never really went away as far as I can tell, it's just been occasionally diverted back into the channel of Lock Her Up.

There was a theory that all of Robert Mueller's investigation was an enormous feint to get around to Clinton (because the Podesta's lobbying firm was involved with Paul Manafort) and that there's thousands of sealed indictments that will fall on all of Them from heaven on the day that the storm breaks. This comes up every once in a while and everyone gets excited until someone points out that Mueller became the head of the FBI on 4th of September 2011, and so obviously oversaw the 9/11 coverup.

There's been someone posting blind item scraps of questions on Reddit for the last few months that's taken most of their attention - you only need to have a few by chance align with news stories and that's read as cast iron confirmation - I've said it before, but Dan Brown has a lot to answer for.

Acknowledging that it's perpetuated by more than, say, two or three people with profound mental illness legitimately makes me want to stop existing in a world where Pizzagate is a thing.

If this thread is anything to go by I don't think it's going away

So.

If you thought the silly nonsense of "pizzagate" reached its nadir when someone invaded a pizza restaurant with an assault rifle demanding to see its (nonexistent) basement and after that it must have died down... it didn't.

Instead, it got weirder.

There’s a new doc on Netflix called Gray State - haven’t watched it but looked up the story and it’s one of those “he was secretly murdered by his own govt for his political views” conspiracies.

The Deep State as fictionalized by… Steven Seagal:

https://www.amazon.com/Way-Shadow-Wolves-Hijacking-America/dp/0999497502/

This is the story of an Arizona Tribal police officer who stumbles onto one of the of the biggest cases in the history of the Southwest. He is a member of an elite group within the Native American communities known as The Shadow Wolves. What comes with his discovery is the uncovering of massive corruption in places where he once had placed his total trust. Shadow Wolves is a book of fiction based on reality. Both author’s have worked with, confronted, and seen the power of the Deep State and the manner in which, at times, federal government agencies willfully violate the Constitution and the laws of the land in service to special interests. Recent events has for the first time made many American citizens aware that the Deep State is very real; that the mainstream media tends toward bias by often offering a false narrative designed by the secret intelligence world in service to special interests. The fight for America’s soul is taking place far from Washington, D.C. This is a story of one small group of patriots fighting the good fight.

i'm getting more and more cynical about conspiracy theories. as i continue to read up on history, i am slowly coming to realize how much of history came about because of bizarre conspiracy theories. i posted on another thread about wat tyler's rebellion, and how much of it came out because of a conspiracy theory called the Great Rumour. in America, history was shaped by conspiracy theories like the Corrupt Bargain, the Slave Power Conspiracy, the Business Plot, and i'm starting to think, you know, fuck it, we should embrace this side of ourselves. because it's not about "smart" or "stupid". there were plenty of intelligent people who believed the Business Plot was a real thing and not just a couple of drunk plutocrats blowing off steam. if people are motivated to make positive changes in the world by believing donald trump killed his wife and buried her in the rose garden, go for it. obviously that's provably false, but it doesn't actually hurt a conspiracy theory for it to be provably false. at worst it just goes away to be replaced by a new one.

we are not reasonable people, but have the misfortune to live in a society that assumes and expects us to be reasonable. the worst thing we can do is buy into the lie that reason conquers all.

my reading of the results of the congressional investigation was "no way in fucking hell were these guys ever going to actually overthrow the government". even if they hadn't picked as a figurehead smedley butler, who immediately made a big stink about it to the press, eventually they would've talked to somebody who would have pointed out to them what a dumbshit idea their "conspiracy" was.

government based on fabricated conspiracies isn't exactly a new thing. this goes at least as far back as that time cicero (as far as anybody can tell) totally made up a conspiracy about catiline because he was worried that catiline's policies were too friendly towards the poor.
