Conspiracy Theories

Alex Jones scrambles to delete #PizzaGate stories from the web after D.C. pizzeria shooting

Conspiracy theorist and InfoWars host Alex Jones is scrambling to erase content he’s disseminated related to #PizzaGate, according to Media Matters.

Promoters of the Pizza Gate conspiracy theory claim that a D.C. pizzeria was used as headquarters in a child sex trafficking operation run by Hillary Clinton. The story was shared on numerous junk websites and was even shared on the social media accounts of people close to president-elect Donald Trump‘s transition team.

It’s well known that Jones was an avid promoter of Pizza Gate, until InfoWars fan Edgar Welch walked in the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in D.C. and fired off a few rounds from his assault rifle. Now, Jones is doing everything he can to distance himself from the fact that he helped the ridiculous claims go viral.

One particular video where Jones says that Clinton is “one of the most vicious serial killers the planet has ever seen,” and goes on to accuse her of being a pedophiliac child killer, was viewed over 427,000 times before being scrubbed from his YouTube channel (it has been archived here).

The video, titled “Watch PIZZAGATE: The Bigger Picture on YouTube,” was shared by Welch before the shooting.

Right Wing Watch was able to recover the video’s audio:

In the wake of the Comet Ping Pong shooting, the FBI filed a criminal complaint that inquired about the video.

Jones’ recent change in tone regarding Pizza Gate is striking. In a video published on December 5, a slightly nervous Jones implored his audience to “be careful about stuff like this,” going on to claim without irony that he’s “one of the middle-of-the-road guys, and I’m being accused of being involved in [spreading Pizza Gate] now.”

In the December 5 video, Jones has as a guest pizzeria shooting eyewitness Sharif Silmi. The interview immediately went downhill when Silmi repeatedly called Jones out for spreading the false story, accusing him of putting a “target” on the backs of people with “innuendo.”

“Quite frankly, I don’t think much of this stuff is happening,” Jones went on to say, referring the conspiracy theory he threw his weight behind in the weeks and months before.

“Stand by your words,” Silmi shot back. “Stop using hashtag ‘Pizza Gate,’ stop showing Comet Ping Pong in your videos…”

I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
