Our old pal Mike Cernovich, who was one of the people pushing the ridiculous Pizzagate story among many others, is now suddenly opposed to those peddling conspiracy theories involving the mass shooting in Las Vegas. Did I mention he’s a host on InfoWars?
In the aftermath of the horrific massacre in Las Vegas, NV, in which suspected shooter Steve Paddock killed at least 59 people and injured hundreds, alternative media troll Mike Cernovich slammed those peddling the conspiracy theory that the shooting was a “false flag” or “that it didn’t actually happen,” saying, “You have real problems”…
Cernovich has peddled conspiracy theories himself, and he still often works with conspiracy theorists. He recently launched a super PAC with other figures in the alternative media space, including sophomoric troll Jack Posobiec, who appeared on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ media platform Infowars yesterday and defended a hoax about the Las Vegas shooting. Cernovich himself has had a regular hosting gig on Infowars since May, working alongside Jones, a major conspiracy theorist who is now one of the major peddlers of the bogus claim that the Las Vegas shooting was “scripted.” Jones said on October 2, “The whole thing has the hallmarks of being scripted by deep-state Democrats and their Islamic allies using mental patient cut-outs.” Jones is also known for repeatedly stating that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, CT, in which 26 people were killed, was a “giant hoax.” Cernovich has appeared by his side in Jones’ studio, and they often amplify each other’s work within their alternative media echo chamber.
So you’ll be quitting that gig with InfoWars and disavowing all the work you’ve done with Alex Jones, right Mike? Right? And you’ll be publicly stating that you were completely full of crap when you were pushing Pizzagate, right? I’m sorry Mike, you’ll have to speak up, I can’t hear you over the sound of crickets chirping. In related news, Donald Trump says he doesn’t like things that are gaudy and ostentatious.
