The reaction to #PizzaGate is a big ol' tell that this shit is legit. You do NOT have a concerted media hit, followed by a blackout, over nothing. You do NOT have a global pattern of such behavior throughout the media over nothing. You do not have a swift and sudden tsunami of Hits upon YouTube accounts covering the matter over nothing. Not even the most dedicated trolls out there do this sort of thing, for there are no lulz to be had by doing so.
Oh no. There is something to it, and since Officialdom is (again) protecting the suspects instead of investigating and prosecuting them (we don't even have someone thrown to the wolves yet) it's up to the people to do it themselves. /pol/ at the various chans are on the case, doing the digging, from which others (such as YouTube user Reality Calls, or Jan Irvin at Gnostic Media) further analyze and popularize through their outlets until it filters down to Normieville.
The thing that folks who dig into this sort of thing learn, if they stay sane, that Normies don't is this: the people involved in something as serious as thing do not want to be exposed. Therefore they can, and do, employ all means available to quash exposure threats. That's how this massive institutional response becomes the tell that #PizzaGate is real: you don't do this unless you're spooked, and hauling ass to put down a threat.
This follows the pattern laid out in Confessions of an Economic Hitman: Media manipulation, then cooptation (which is what those "hitmen" do), followed by discrete killing ("jackals", real hitmen), and concluding with open use of state power (the military and security services)- with the worst threats murdered while "resisting arrest" and then coming back to media manipulation to gaslight and gatekeep the narrative back into line.
Yeah, that shit's scary as fuck, which is why anonymity is vital to successful investigation of this mater- and why moves to censor and lock down the Internet is rightly seen as being part of the scheme to protect the interests served by this global pedophila network and cult. (Yes, "interests served", because this cult/ring is just a tool used to achieve desired ends- it itself just as expendable as the ammunition used to end their predatory lives.
This must go on, and the full length and depth of the ring exposed, because our future and our posterity relies on it. Time to bring the bloodsuckers into the glory of the sun and watch them squirm and burn within it.
