Fake News misled Edgar Maddison Welch, a 28-year-old man from Salisbury, North Carolina to take action.
Edgar decided to "self-investigate" the pizzeria Comet Ping Pong on December 4, 2016. After reading online that Hillary Clinton and her campaign manager were running a pedophile ring from a popular family Pizzeria in Washington DC.
The story alleged that children were kidnapped, tortured and sexually abused. By Hilary Clinton and her campaign manager John Podesta.
Pizzagate went viral. But when the police were called to the incident in December 2016. For most people, the Fake News story was exposed on the spot as the story unfolded on the mainstream news. But the news story persisted and has become an urban legend which still threatens the Pizzeria as people continue to take action against the business where the alleged abuse took place. Even after the story has long since been exposed as Fake News and is completely outlandish in its claims.
The claim has since been declared utterly false by Washington, D.C. police and federal agents.
Prosecutors said Welch sent this text to a friend: "Raiding a pedo ring, possible sacrificing the lives of a few for the lives of many."
For Edgar Welch this Fake News story was all to real and he paid the price when he took his rifle into the Pizzeria to 'free the children'. He was sentenced in June 2016, he faced at least a year and a half in prison. And he agreed to pay $5,700 for the damage he caused.
Did the story end there?
No. In January 2019. Investigators were looking for a man who started a fire at Comet Ping Pong.
The conspiracy theories abound still.
Many theories speculating on what was really behind the recent blaze.
One user on a Facebook Group 'Pizzagate Uncompromised' wrote his own view on the recent fire. “To destroy evidence or vengeance? I hope the latter.”
This was one of the hundreds of comments in dozens of Facebook groups dedicated to the conspiracy theory.
Other groups celebrated. With popcorn eating Gifs.
One user responding to the news of a fire at the Pizzeria with. “Burn baby burn that evil place of debauchery of children, torture and murder down.”
So although at the time many News sites took the Pizzagate story down. What has emerged are many more Conspiracy Stories and Sites circulating them on Social Media platforms. And the Fake News story lives on.
