Pizzagate Documentary | The Devil and Cheese Pizza

This documentary examines the Pizzagate conspiracy theory.

What is Pizzagate?

Pizzagate is a frightening conspiracy theory that claims Hillary Clinton and many other wealthy and powerful elites are traffickers, abusers, and murderers of children. It’s also been debunked — Pizzagate is fake news, but its claims have led to real-world consequences.

Is Pizzagate still relevant? The answer seems to be yes. Recent events have brought its claims back into the public eye:

First, there’s the Wayfair “scandal,” which became a social media phenomenon. Many claimed that third-party vendors on the Wayfair website were trafficking children. Why would anyone believe that Wayfair, an e-commerce giant, was involved in child trafficking?  On their website, pillows, dressers, and other relatively inexpensive home goods were selling thousands of dollars above the retail price. According to conspiracy theorists, third-party vendors were selling these items as a “code” to traffic living people. Take a look at this tweet, for example:

The claim was that the names of the products (“Samiyah,” “Yaritza,” etc.) are those of missing children. According to USA Today, these assertions aren’t grounded in fact. But it didn’t stop conspiracy theorists from attempting to link this “scandal” to “the Clinton and Gates foundations, Ellen DeGeneres and George Soros, among others […] Posts have also attempted to link Wayfair to Ghislaine Maxwell, the ex-girlfriend of deceased sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.”

Then there was Out of the Shadows, a documentary on pedophilia in Hollywood, which addresses the Pizzagate conspiracy theory. According to critics, Out of the Shadows peddles sensational claims without evidence. 

Where did Pizzagate come from?

The Pizzagate conspiracy theory first gained steam on 4chan and Reddit. Pizzagate made mainstream news when Edgar Welch, a seemingly ordinary citizen, walked into Comet Ping Pong, a pizza restaurant in Washington, D.C., and started shooting. Fortunately, nobody was injured, and Welch submitted to arrest.
Pizzagate is fake news, but this isn’t a debunking video — there are plenty of those online. This is an examination of Pizzagate as American folklore. The Pizzagate conspiracy theory has all the elements of a great horror story.

In this video, I examine:

  • James Alefantis, restaurateur and Democratic Party supporter, whose former boyfriend, David Brock, is the founder of Media Matters for America. Pictures said to be from Alefantis’s Instagram were posted across a great many conspiracy-friendly message boards on Reddit and 4chan. Many of these posts weren’t Alefantis’s at all, but fabrications.
  • John Podesta, whose leaked emails were circulated online. Some of these emails contained so-called “evidence” of child sacrifice, satanism, and trafficking.
  • Adrenochrome, the supposed substance that folks like Clinton, Podesta, and other elites extracted from the blood of their unwilling victims.
  • The supposed plot for world domination that will ultimately lead to the extinction of the human species.

Of course, the vast majority of these claims are false. However, the arrest and suicide (or murder) of Jeffrey Epstein has led many to ask questions about child trafficking among the rich and powerful. These questions haven’t been adequately answered. Certainly, the more outlandish claims of the Pizzagate conspiracy are totally unfounded. But figures like Jeffrey Epstein and David Hamilton have led many to wonder if some very rich, very powerful folks have gotten away with highly illegal behavior.

Did you know that, in 2016, a video of a human sacrifice at CERN went viral? This documentary is a wild odyssey through the world of science, black magic, and End Times Bible prophecy.
