That's not surprising, a lot of these idiots probably participated in the Fappening, after all, which ended up distributing underage models at some point.

Seems like, on some corners of the Internet, "cheese pizza" is slang for... something else with the initials CP. Yeah.
Hence how these guys managed to jump to that conclusion.


Oh, it's worse. I've been told that the CP/Cheese Pizza thing started as a joke on one of the chans, wherein a thread was filled with images of pizza as a jibe at the mods (who obviously would ban real CP). I have no clue if its a term actually snatched up by real pedophiles, but it probably didn't start life as one.

So yeah. This whole thing began as an in-joke. Looks like Pepe and Pedobear have struck again. A meme out of proper context can wreak havoc, apparently.

This goes as another example of how people will believe absolute, obvious, flabbergasting nonsense if it aligns with their political ideology.

List of genuine beliefs I have heard expressed, in so many words, by people I know for a fact to be legitimately intelligent:
- Climate change is a hoax, promoted by the government to cause people to accept totalitarianism out of fear of an existential threat.
- The "essence of liberalism" is: attempting to get rid of all blue-collar jobs, exporting them to third-world countries, so that only white-collar jobs exist in the West, because liberals are elitist snobs and find blue-collar work aesthetically unappealing.
- Yeah, the Clintons are def pedophiles you guys, especially Bill.
- Climate change is simultaneously an excuse for liberals to destroy the economy, which they want to do For The Evulz.
- Liberals support legal abortion and promote climate change as a fact, not because they have any reasons whatsoever, but because liberals hate the concept of human life and want to reduce the population by any means possible.
- Gay sex consists of shoving your arm up somebody's ass, to the elbow. That is how gays have sex.
- The cheesy "Cremation of Care" ceremony at Bohemian Grove is actually a real, for realsies, human sacrifice to the devil.
- Muslim women have showers in a bathing suit, so that they won't even see themselves naked, ever.
- Speaking of Muslims, it is impossible for Islamic countries to function without huge numbers of Christian slaves. This is because praying five times a day takes up literally all of Muslims' time, so they never actually work, but instead all work is done by Christian slave labour.

And on, and on. Some of those ideas are laugh-out-loud funny, but there are people who live their daily lives and seem normal, have jobs, are kind-hearted and pleasant, and are well-educated, who believe all that. All those I listed are from conservatives, because that is my experience, but of course there are liberals who believe equally ridiculous bullshit.

Now, with Trump going around peddling his own fantasy version of the world, warped perceptions of reality among the general population are only going to increase.

This shooting won't change anyone's mind of course. People who are shocked and appalled by this would not have believed in Pizzagate in the first place. People who did believe it are calling it a false flag. They'd call it a false flag if people died. Conspiracists still call the Sandy Hook massacre fake, even though 20 little kids died there, and guns were not banned because of it.

How do you put a shower into a bathing suit?

Hate is such a strong word. I just prefer to think that this world would be a lot better off without certain people.

It's actually kind of funny. My first ex was born in Iraq and let me know that, underneath the full burquas, they're usually wearing the raciest lingerie they could possibly get. Well, the ones with money, anyway.

Also, I am still asking for proof on a website. Not still, really, but I'm replying when they do.
Now I'm being told to go to youtube, as if it's full of nothing but truth.

I'm with Thomas Hardy.

A time there was - as one may guess
And as, indeed, earth's testimonies tell -
Before the birth of consciousness,
When all went well.

None suffered sickness, love, or loss,
None knew regret, starved hope, or heart-burnings;
None cared whatever crash or cross
Brought wrack to things.

If something ceased, no tongue bewailed,
If something winced and waned, no heart was wrung;
If brightness dimmed, and dark prevailed,
No sense was stung.

But the disease of feeling germed,
And primal rightness took the tinct of wrong;
Ere nescience shall be reaffirmed
How long, how long?

The shooter was interviewed by NYT.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/07/us/ed ... d=tw-share

Snippets:

“I just wanted to do some good and went about it the wrong way,” he said.



“The intel on this wasn’t 100 percent,” he said. However, he refused to dismiss outright the claims in the online articles, conceding only that there were no children “inside that dwelling.” He also said that child slavery was a worldwide phenomenon.


Where did he learn about the fake news involving Comet?

He said it was through word of mouth. After recently having internet service installed at his house, he was “really able to look into it.” He said that substantial evidence from a combination of sources had left him with the “impression something nefarious was happening.”


He has listened to Alex Jones, whose radio show traffics in conspiracy theories and who once said that Mrs. Clinton “has personally murdered and chopped up” children. “He’s a bit eccentric,” Mr. Welch said. “He touches on some issues that are viable but goes off the deep end on some things.”


Mr. Welch said that he had acted in haste and that, if he could, he would do a lot of things differently. “I regret how I handled the situation,” he said.

From the article:

Mr. Welch, the father of two daughters, said he woke up Sunday morning and told his family he had some things to do. He left “Smallsbury,” a nickname for his hometown, for the 350-mile drive to Washington with the intention of giving the restaurant a “closer look” and then returning home. He wanted to “shine some light on it.” As he made his way to Washington, he felt his “heart breaking over the thought of innocent people suffering.” Once he got to the pizzeria, there was an abrupt change of plans. Mr. Welch would not say why he took a military-style assault rifle inside the restaurant and fired it.


Outright nutter. He didn't want to take a closer look and shine light on anything. If that was the case then use the video recording functions of your phone.... oh wait he just got home internet it'll be another decade before he discovers no contract smartphones can be had for under $100. He wanted to make headlines by taking a gun and liberating child slaves and when there weren't any targets for his vengeance he thankfully gave up. Well gave up in that he didn't shoot anyone, he's still a fan of fake news but not the term "fake".

My guess is he'll get probation.

I like how this started because Erdoğan's supporters used a fictional child sex abuse scandal in a country that isn't Turkey to accuse his opponents of hypocrisy for criticizing an actual child sex abuse scandal in his administration.

Like Trump himself, Erdoğan is a short-tempered buffoon and a bully with no respect for free speech or the rule of law who enjoys pushing people's buttons. He consistently fails to win a majority of the popular vote, but thanks to the structure of the Turkish electoral system (designed to undermine Kurdish parties) always gets one anyways.

52x is probably right...they're weird, but in the sense that there's some obtuse in-joke.

Or they're used as a codeword to refer to something else entirely, which is the impression that I got. The wording is just too off-the-wall or stilted, and they consistently refer to "pasta", "pizza", or "cheese". Something's going on, but the whole child-sex ring conspiracy is an insane logical leap based on extremely flimsy reasoning. Chances are, we'll never know what it is, and I'd rather rely on Occam's razor.

CNN, on the other hand...oh boy. Nothing like lying to your audience regarding free information.


"Flimsy reasoning?" Odd choice of words. "Flimsy," just like a New York style slice of pizza! YOU FUCK 6 YEAR OLD BOYS! ADMIT IT! YOU FUCK 6 YEAR OLD BOYS!
