Pizzagate Scandal: What Is So Hard To Believe About Pedophiles And Ritualized Abuse

Pizzagate is the story that no one wants to talk about. Pizzagate is dark, the sort of thing that keeps people awake at night. Pizzagate exposes us to the horrors of something we know exists, but that we close our eyes too. The rational part of our mind tells us that Pizzagate cannot be true. The smiling people we see on TV, those who want out votes, could not possibly be involved in the ritualized abuse of children. How could Comet Ping Pong, a humble Washington pizza joint, be the center of a worldwide pedophile network whose tentacles reach all the way to the White House?

Yet child abuse happens. It happens every day and everywhere. A Pizzagate style scandal may well be taking place in your neighborhood. My local newspaper, the Bournemouth Echo, recently reported that child abuse reports in my county have doubled in the last two years. My local police force, Dorset police, recently reported that a local pedophile had been convicted of sexually abusing children as young as just 17 months.

“David Shepherd, would fly to the Philippines and record himself committing serious sexual offences, including rape, against young children.”

We find it impossible to believe that Comet Ping Pong, the Washington pizza joint at the center of Pizzagate, could be a pedophile hub. Surely pedophiles are so dark and disgusting that they hide away in the deepest recesses of society. The person waiting at the bus stop with you couldn’t be a pedophile, could he? Yet NBC recently reported that law enforcement agencies across the world worked together to smash a worldwide pedophile network.

“Operation Rescue” had identified 670 suspects and that 230 abused children in 30 countries had been taken to safety. More children are expected to be found.”

“So far 184 people had been arrested and investigations in some countries were continuing. Most of those detained are suspected of direct involvement in sexually abusing children. They include teachers, police officers and scout leaders”

Just last month Fox News reported that police in Norway had broken up a pedophile ring which includes “the abuse of infants and at least one case of a suspect acknowledging abusing his own children.”

Deputy Police Chief Gunnar Floystad told reporters that “many of the suspects are highly educated, and include lawyers and politicians.”

Why Is Pizzagate Reported As Fake News?

The mainstream media, for the most part, ignored Pizzagate until early this week. The Washington Post, the BBC, and the New York Times all ran stories claiming that Pizzagate was “fake news.” On Sunday Edgar Maddison Welch walked into Comet Ping Pong with a rifle and fired a shot into the floor. Of course, no one would condone Welch’s actions, but they did serve to bring Pizzagate to the attention of the world’s media.

UK broadsheet, the Independent was just one outlet who used Sunday’s incident to declare Pizzagate a fake news story.

“A Washington pizzeria is the home of a child sex abuse ring that includes people including Hillary Clinton and her campaign chief John Podesta, reports claim. Those reports are entirely baseless and there is no actual evidence that the Comet Ping Pong pizza restaurant is anything but a popular pizza place, but that doesn’t matter.”

“At least the fact that it is entirely untrue doesn’t matter to the thousands of online conspiracy theorists and trolls who have promoted the false rumor.”

It is perhaps ironic that the Independent has run at least six news stories since November 24 focusing on widespread sexual abuse of children and young men at the UK’s soccer clubs. We are continually told that Pizzagate cannot be real because no victims have come forward. The soccer abuse scandal has already revealed that at least one club, 2014 Premier League champions Chelsea, paid victims “hush money.” The abuse cases reported so far stretch back over 30 years.

Pizzagate can’t be real because it links to Hillary Clinton and her campaign chief John Podesta. Let’s not forget that serial child abuser, Jimmy Savile was strongly connected to the British government and to the royal family. He was even knighted by Queen Elizabeth. There is a huge investigation into child abuse by government officials which has seen several head of the enquiry quit. The BBC reports that a number of lawyers have also quit the historic child abuse inquiry which is described as “a shambles.”

Pizzagate style pedophiles scandals go right to the top of the British government. The Daily Mail reports that police have come under pressure to end a probe into satanic pedophile abuse allegedly committed by former prime minister Edward Heath.

So Is Pizzagate Real?

At this stage, it is impossible to say whether or not Pizzagate is real. That said, the Pizzagate emails by John Podesta, Marina Abramovic, and Susan Sandler are very odd. As Pizzagate “citizen investigators” point out the emails make no sense unless they are some kind of code. The mainstream media claim Pizzagate is simply an alt-right conspiracy to damage Hillary Clinton. What many people would like to know is that, if there is an innocent explanation for the language in the Pizzagate emails, why has nobody given that explanation.

One thing that investigators are convinced of is that Pizzagate is asking tough questions of some very important people. No one has explained why, Comet Ping Pong owner James Alefantis, is listed by GQ magazine as one of the 50 most important people in Washington. Alefantis’ Instagram feed featured a host of pictures of young children with some very distasteful comments alongside. Pizzagate investigators would love to hear his explanation for those comments.

Pizzagate is disturbing, no matter how you look at it. Time may show that Alefantis, Podesta, Clinton, and anyone else involved in Pizzagate, are totally innocent of any wrongdoing. That said we should not dismiss Pizzagate lightly. Pizzagate sounds crazy, but we should ensure that the safety of children is paramount. For that reason alone the mainstream media should examine Pizzagate closely instead of simply dismissing it.

History is littered with Pizzagate stories that were ignored and thousands of children were damaged as a result.
