ASU Conservative Group Invites Pizzagater Mike Cernovich to Campus - 2020-03-04
College Republicans United — the Arizona State University club that made headlines for its leaked racist chats — plans to hold an event on Wednesday with one of the most prominent promoters of the Pizzagate conspiracy theory.
Mike Cernovich is scheduled to appear at ASU's Memorial Union building at 6 p.m. A far-right troll with more than half a million Twitter followers, Cernovich rose to prominence railing against feminism and questioning the reality of date rape. Here's a choice selections of his Tweets, courtesy of the Southern Poverty Law Center:
Cernovich is best known for propagating the unfounded theory that Hillary Clinton was involved in an underground pedophilia ring run out of a pizzeria in Washington, D.C. A gunman who fired a shot in the pizzeria while attempting to investigate the conspiracy theory was sentenced to four years in prison in 2017.
