Well, well, well. As unlikely as it may sound to some, the Pizzagate truth community was handed a long overdue victory in the F.B.I. arrest and subsequent imprisonment without bail of Dr. Pizza, as he was known on Twitter.
Dr. Pizza, whose real name is Peter Bright, happens to be an outspoken Trump critic, and was one of the loudest critics of “Pizzagate” when it went viral about two years ago on the Internet. To recap, Pizzagate was the truthful claim that pedophiles use a code language, including the word “pizza,” to denote a young female child - in much the same way that cannabis users have, in the past, evaded detection by using code words such as “lettuce” or whatever else to disguise their discussions while in mixed company.
Pizzagate researchers also asserted that this odd code language was found throughout the WikiLeaks emails of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential campaign chairman, John Podesta. This claim is demonstrably true, and has been a frequent topic of FULCRUM’s news coverage.
Dr. Pizza’s downfall is another chink in the armor of people, especially those in media, attempting to deny the scope of this scandal. Peter Bright was a popular journalist on the left, and a loud Pizzagate denier, even going so far as to personally reply to some of our founder’s tweets about Pizzagate at the time.
"He got vindicated because of Dr. Pizza. It's fucking real, man, sorry,” the livestreamer Defango reportedly said on his show the other night.
And that does appear to be the case.
