This is the dark side of the internet. This is where the trolls live and the conspiracy theorists and the authors of fake news. The writing is often dramatic with lots of “documentation” offered and perhaps illusions to organizations of myth and history which we imagine no longer exist, such as the Knights Templar. These folks demonize politicians and people who are rich and famous. They like to create graphic images of them as Satan, suggesting that they worship Lucifer. Do they believe what they write? Do they actually think Nancy Pelosi is Lucifer on some days and Hillary Clinton is Lucifer on others? I doubt it but they hope their readers will believe, and some actually do become converts.
Comments were made on my articles about Hillary which began to refer to things that I did not really understand. They accused her of child abuse, they talked about how “dark” she is, they hinted that she performed criminal acts. These sly comments hinting that Hillary Clinton is some kind of monster began to appear before 2016 voting started, during early voting and even up to and including election day. I have no idea how much of an effect these conspiratorial whispers had on the election.
Recently the malignant messages came to a head in the attack on a pizza shop in Washington, D. C. where a guy with a gun entered the establishment with the intention of breaking up a secret pedophilia ring involving Hillary Clinton that was supposedly being run from secret spaces under the pizza shop. Who started this rumor? An article appeared in The Daily Beast on Monday, December 5, 2016 which describes these events.
A colleague on tremr.com also wrote about this:
After reading this eye opening article I began to remember the many references to Lucifer that I had been seeing on the Right and the word Illuminati being used as a shortcut to a larger body of thoughts and ideas, but I thought the conspiracy theory ended there. Apparently this stuff goes way beyond the academic and posits a theory that there is an enormous pedophilia ring and child slavery trafficking operation that has engulfed almost all of our politicians, and in fact politicians and famous people around the globe.
This activity has been practiced, according to some, by every American President except Reagan, Carter, and perhaps Nixon. A shadow government has resulted from these nefarious activities which allows financiers and others who know of and have proof of these activities to hold our government leaders (and even EU leaders) under their control, to make them do their bidding for fear of exposure. So all the while I was saying that Hillary Clinton is hardly nefarious, this conspiracy theory nonsense was enthralling readers on the internet and possibly affecting the outcome of the election. Even the infamous Alex Jones got in on this one, or was, perhaps, the prime mover
Am I naïve or sane? If this crap these writers are pedaling is in any way true then our planet is doomed. I choose not to believe a word of it; it’s obviously a conspiracy theory. Who makes this stuff up though? General Flynn’s son just got fired for blogging about this bizarre tale but I don’t think he authored the theory; I think he was just repeating what he had read on another site. Why do people make this stuff up? I suppose the answers seem fairly obvious (create fear, get attention, influence events).
Pedophilia and child trafficking are very real though, and it is impossible to ignore the fact that if there is a “product” (in this case a young human being) then there must be a market for that “product”. Who are the people who create a market for trafficking such as this? I assume that all of our political class is not involved in this. That’s the part I believe is fake. But, will this particular twisted vice ever be eradicated?
I’m writing about something I find loathsome and that I know very little about but I am worried because this stuff seems to go way beyond a pizza parlor in Washington D. C. and therefore I think it should be on our radar.
