The Real Skinny on #Pizzagate, Podesta and Comet Ping Pong

mrnabrmvcWhile the rumors flying around are mostly false, it doesn’t change the fact that there are some very unsavory characters involved. 

Satanists? Pedophiles? Podesta? And pizza? That’s #Pizzagate, a strange near-scandal involving Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman John Podesta.

In hacked emails of Podesta released by Wikileaks, it was revealed that Podesta is linked to a questionable Washington pizza joint called Comet Ping Pong. He has heldfundraisers there for both Clinton and Barack Obama. One of the leaked emails contained a discussion with the restaurant’s owner, James Alefantis, planning an event for Clinton.

Rumors started spreading on the social media sites 4chan and Reddit that Alefantis is at the center of a group of Satanists and pedophiles, which includes powerful people in Washington, D.C. As alleged proof, symbols found in the restaurant and on its website were claimed to be similar to pedophile symbols, and photos of children found on Alefantis’s social media accounts were somehow also asserted to be related. The fact that some words related to pizza are used as code words in pedophilia was alsopointed out as evidence. Comet Ping Pong lists “Heavy Breathing” as one of its friends, a musical group withcreepy images of children on its website. In one of Podesta’s leaked emails, someone told him they found his handkerchief, which “has a map that seems pizza-related.”
