In late 2016, a man walked into a Washington pizza restaurant carrying a loaded assault rifle and a handgun and fired off several shots after being convinced by the right-wing conspiracy theory known as “Pizzagate” that the restaurant, Comet Ping Pong, was a front for a massive pedophile ring operated by high-ranking Democratic politicians.
Last night, ardent Pizzagate promoter and radical right-wing conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin appeared on “The Pete Santilli Show,” where she asserted that this incident was nothing more than a deep-state “false flag” meant to discredit those who are trying to spread the truth about the existence of a global pedophile ring that murders and eats children.
Crokin told Santilli, who is himself an extremist right-wing radio host who once declared that he wanted to shoot Hillary Clinton “right in the vagina,” that the real goal of this attack was to destroy a computer server that could have proven that Pizzagate is real.
“That was a false flag,” Crokin said. “What the deep state did is they created a false flag even that tried to make people like me and anyone researching Pizzagate look hysterical and they said that anyone that is saying that Pizzagate is real, they’re responsible for this gunman coming to the pizza parlor and trying to hurt people.”
“The gunman went to Comet Ping Pong and conveniently didn’t hurt anyone,” she added, “but the gunman shot up the computer server, conveniently where allegedly there was graphic content on this computer server that may indeed prove that child trafficking went on at this restaurant.”
