Pizzagate Was Revived By Canadian Politicians and Everything Is Dumb - 2019-03-11
A couple years after pizzagate reached its apex, the notorious conspiracy theory has reared its ugly head in Canada, thanks to Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer wanting to keep the next election competitive by giving his Liberal counterpart something to complain about.
In what is the first time but probably not the last of this election cycle, the political news in Canada (non SNC-Lavalin edition) partially focused on a online conspiracy this weekend. For those of you not in the know, pizzagate is conspiracy that essentially revolves around the idea the Clintons, and powerful people around them, run a child pedophile ring out of a DC pizzeria.
The conspiracy went viral during the 2016 election and climaxed with a man taking a rifle to Comet Ping Pong, the pizzeria at the centre of the conspiracy, demanding authorities investigate the ring, and firing several times into a wall. No one was hurt in the incident and the man was eventually sentenced to four year for his actions. Now, while the conspiracy never really went away and still boasts a few hardline followers, it's gone underground and become much quieter as many followers moved onto new conspiracies (Q-Anon) or what have you.
