Fake-News Conspiracy Theorists Target Yet Another Pizzeria with Bizarre Accusations

Without evidence, Pizzagate believers are reportedly harassing the beloved Pizza Brain in Philadelphia.




The founders of Pizza Brain are affiliated with the faith-based Circle of Hope community, but that hasn't shielded them from bizarre accusations of satanism.

 

Believers in the so-called “Pizzagate” conspiracy have found a new target: Philadelphia’s beloved Pizza Brain, the unique pizzeria/museum, and its next-door neighbor, Little Baby’s ice cream shop.

As the Philadelphia Inquirer reports, the fake-news story, which led an armed man to storm into a Washington, D.C. pizzeria last year and fire a gun, won’t die, even though no evidence has ever been presented to support it and police have said it has no basis in fact. Believers claim that pizzerias like Pizza Brain, Comet Ping Pong in D.C., and Roberta’s in Brooklyn are actually fronts for sex trafficking rings, Satan worship and pedophilia, as PMQ reported previously, with some receiving death threats due to the bizarre claims.

“The Philadelphia-based version of the yarn dissects the social-media feeds of Pizza Brain and Little Baby’s and finds cause for alarm,” reports the Inquirer. “In the quirky, silly and sometimes edgy Instagram posts about pizza and ice cream, the Pizzagaters find ‘very Luciferian, very satanic stuff.’ They fixate on posts like a photo of a baby next to a large slice of pizza, perhaps because of an Instagram commenter’s joking remark: ‘pizza and babies!! Da best topping ever.’”

A Texas man named Jim Blake has leveled accusations at Pizza Brain on a Youtube video that has been viewed nearly 100,000 times in three weeks, according to the Inquirer. He points to a humorously surreal Little Baby’s TV commercial as evidence of evildoing (see video below). “What is it about pizza and pedophilia?” Blake asks in his Youtube video. “This is just more concrete evidence that there is something definitely going on.”

Pete Angevine, a co-owner of Little Baby’s, said he had noticed “an uptick in prank/harassing phone calls … strange chatter on social media, and even a few hateful and vaguely threatening direct emails that I received in the middle of the night. We are worried that someone could go into any one of our shops, which are public places, and cause our staff or customers serious harm. That is alarming and troubling.”

Michael Carter, co-owner of Pizza Brain, said he has filed harassment reports with Youtube and Twitter and has encouraged employees to contact police if they feel threatened by a customer. He also noted the charges of “satanic” activity were ironic since Pizza Brain has long been affiliated with the faith-based Circle of Hope community.
