Just like that – #Pizzagate is back. It all started two days ago when a man walked into Comet Pizza and according to police, fired an assault rifle at the floor. Reports allege that the gunman was investigating the restaurant for it’s central role in the much talked about #pizzagate scandal, which was ignited by the DKIM verified Wikileaked Podesta Emails.
Reactions around the internet have varied from outrage to disbelief, with the MSM quick to condemn the incident along with #pizzagate, and the Reddit-4chan Autist alliance madly working to piece things together and prove that the whole event was fabricated.
(I dragged this little timestamped prediction out of the rabbit hole).
Of all the opinions and information flying in the immediate aftermath – one voice stood out from the rest; the son of Trump’s incoming National Security Advisor Mike Flynn.
With #Pizzagate decidedly back out of the shadows, outspoken conservative Breitbart journalist Milo Yiannopoulos immediately pounced on the opportunity to give a presentation to the world…
…however, 30 minutes before Milo’s speech he made this odd statement:
“… I do have one announcement to make, which is that sadly, when I announced I was going to be speaking about Pizzagate this evening, I got a number of phone calls with Washington area codes saying ‘not yet, stop it,’ so we’re going to be talking about a few other things instead.”
Also of note, many have noted that Alex Jones has recently had an abrupt change in tone towards #pizzagate starting about a week before the comet pizza incident. Early yesterday, Jones put out a video suggesting that #pizzagate is a diversion and people should stop looking into the story. This was kind of, very, totally out of character for the king of Conspiracy theories. In fact, something like #pizzagate heating up are precisely what Alex Jones has built a career on.
Last thing (for now), Infowars reporter and Army Veteran Joe Biggs – known for his over the top investigative journalism and hard hitting #pizzagate youtube videos – was just fired for unknown reasons, and Infowars has deleted some or all of Biggs’ #pizza related content from their video archive. People have no clue what he did, as neither @Rambobiggs nor Infowars has commented on specifics. Biggs has made several tweets and gab.ai posts which he’s deleted in the last few hours:
Biggs then asked (in another deleted tweet):
So we’ve got a strange 4chan post warning that a false flag involving James Alefantis (owner of Comet Pizza) was about to occur, the day before a guy walks in 2 hours till open and allegedly fires a round into the floor. The incident sets the internet ablaze again and the MSM shifts into maximum FAKE NEWS WITCH HUNT MODE. The controversy draws the son of a very public figure into the fray – and just as we’re about to hear from outspoken and very articulate Milo Yiannopoulos on the issue, he cancels. The same day, Alex Jones of Infowars puts out a video encouraging people to stop investigating #pizzagate – and Infowars fires resident #pizzagate expert Joe Biggs (@rambobiggs) and removes his content.
There are a few theories floating around right now; Either Alex Jones and Milo have been compromised and Joe Biggs has been thrown under the bus, or Trump’s team told everyone to knock it off until after the inauguration and Biggs didn’t want to play along. Another possibility is that Alex Jones has been looking to pivot away from #pizzagate for a week or so, and Milo was called off so as not to embarrass Breitbart. Whatever the truth, something is afoot.
