“WASHINGTON — A man fired a rifle on Sunday inside a Washington pizza restaurant that has been subjected to harassment based on false stories tying it to child abuse, the police said. No one was hurt, and the man was arrested.
The man, Edgar M. Welch, 28, of Salisbury, N.C., told the police that he had come to the restaurant, Comet Ping Pong, in northwest Washington, to “self-investigate” what is being called Pizzagate, an online conspiracy theory asserting, with no evidence, that the restaurant is somehow tied to a child abuse ring. He entered the restaurant shortly before 3 p.m. with a rifle and fired it at least once inside, the police said.
In a statement, Comet Ping Pong’s owner, James Alefantis, condemned the people who had been spreading the bogus stories about child abuse.
“What happened today demonstrates that promoting false and reckless conspiracy theories comes with consequences,” he said.”
…I predict it’s going to be these 4chan sorts [though you can find similar sociopaths, all over the net], who are going to destroy the free internet as we have known it.
These fanatics [and agents of chaos] are going to be the plague, which causes an authoritarian crackdown.
…I want to be wrong about this…Common sense tells me this will happen.
