Pizzagate gunman says "intel on this was not 100 percent." Gee, ya think?

Courtesy of ABC News: 

Three days after Edgar Maddison Welch allegedly opened fire in a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant, he spoke to The New York Times about the conspiracy known as “Pizzagate” and his intentions this past weekend. 

On Sunday, Welch told the Times, he drove 350 miles from his home in North Carolina to Washington, D.C., in order to look into claims -- proven to be fictitious -- that Comet Ping Pong, a restaurant in the capital, housed a child slavery ring. 

After entering the restaurant with an AR-15-style rifle and a .38 caliber handgun, firing at least one shot, and finding no evidence to corroborate the allegations he came to investigate, Welch surrendered to police, according to court documents.

Welch claims that he came armed to "to help rescue" the children he was sure were being held captive based on conspiracy theories he read online.

When he arrived and found no captive children I guess he just fired his gun out of.....frustration?

(I mean he brought it 350 miles. What is he going to do, not shoot it?)

Welch also had this to say:

“The intel on this wasn’t 100 percent,” Welch told the Times. “I regret how I handled the situation.”

Well there's an understatement for ya.

The gunman also added that he recently became very religious (Aha!) and that he still did not dismiss the claims made against the pizza joint and the DNC completely.

That is the real danger of fake news sites, and those who purposeful spread conspiracy theories, it is quite easy to plant a false narrative, much more difficult to correct it.

    Clowns like this fool can't even discern reality. He talks about "intel" like he was privy to the results of some type of genuine investigation and they missed a few things. He thinks RW BS on the internet is reality. Typical low IQ Trump voter and all around Palin type slow kid in the class.

    So many of us have been making so much fun of this idiot on so many websites for the last few days I don't know what to say now.

    He's just an idiot deplorable that, really, has two kids? Poor kids, your dad is a moron!

  3. He also said that he just recently got the internet.

    I believe Alex Jones may have been mentioned.

    Explains a lot.

    I hope they throw everything at him.

    He brought a gun into D.C. Isn't that against the law?

    He fired said gun. Also against the law.

    Personally, I'd like to see his right to gun ownership denied for the rest of this life.

    Uneducated doofus.

    Did he really think that this would be on the internet, yet no one would have investigated? That those children would still be in that basement (that doesn't exist)?

    This is why fake news should be a CRIME punishable by more than just a hand slap fine.

    Alex Jones and that Asshat that was on Samantha Bee should be first in line. Let them be cell mates.

      Alex Jones should be guilty as an accessory to the crime. I honestly don't understand how freedom of speech includes the freedom to lie.

      Fox got (gets) away with fake news. Think O-Reilly's 'Tiller the baby killer' bs that cause the doctor to be assassinated in a CHURCH of all places.

      War on Christians?

      On 12/29/12, President Obama signed HR 4310, the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act. Section 1078 ( ) of the bill authorizes the use of propaganda inside the US, which had previously been banned since 1948 when the Smith-Mundt Act was passed.

    Should have thought about his two kids before driving north. Now he will have plenty of time to think about them.

    I bet if Trump supporters were polled on whether the guy should be jailed or not, the vast majority would say not. Rachel Maddow just had a segment on about a new PPP poll's questions and answer, and the results showed that Trump people truly do live in an alternate universe, one created by Trump. Everything he said over and over again, they believe. They don't even know the very basic truths out there. And they don't think he should show his tax returns. They simply accept everything about him. I know people hate hearing something so disgusting as an example, but I really do think he could rape a child right in front of them and they'd be okay with it. And I really do think that many would offer their children to him if Trump summoned his fans together and asked them to bring their young daughters for him to have their virginity sacrificed to him. And I really do think that some of his fans would go out and do as he said if he told the men to now go find a child to have sex with. I really do think that this is how pathetic and creepy this whole Trump movement is.

      You got ALL THAT RIGHT! AND it is NOT JUST HIM!
      (they/he will cut heads off after the rape too.)

    2. Give them time.

      Wait until they lose their Medicare and Social Security. The jobs don't come back. He's making money hand over fist for his businesses that he's NOT giving up. Wait until he doesn't build the wall and she doesn't get locked up.

      They'll eventually turn on him. They will be just as rabidly angry AT him as they are now defending him.

      I won't be surprised if he's assassinated and it's one of his own Deplorables that does it.

      That "alternate universe" is going to come crashing down on all of us come the end of January. God help us all. (I write that as a sincere prayer).

    Funny how you so easily joke about trafficking while never having dared to share what you know about Shailey/ trafficking of indigenous ALaskan women/ and/ or Bristol and how her baby disappeared in Haiti.

    "In recent years, Welch often mentioned his Christian faith. Interspersed with Facebook posts about his daughters, the registered Republican mused on the Bible and religion.

    Danielle Tillman of Raleigh said she met Welch a few months ago and has known his current girlfriend for years. She recalls Welch made her uncomfortable while talking at length about religion. At one point, he grabbed her hand and prayed, asking for “the demons to come out of me,” she said."

      This nut job has seen too many movies. Washington, D.C., is just lucky that he didn't kill anyone at the pizzeria or beyond. I hope he spends some serious time in prison - without access to the internet.

    Did alex jones rig and make up stories again? did he help rig the election?

  16. Anonymous8:19 PM

    This is not a conspiracy theory.

    This was a lie, nothing more.

    The media cannot bring themselves to use the word "lie", but that doesn't make this a conspiracy or a conspiracy theory. It was a lie and those involved freely admit it.

    Do better. If it's an outright fucking lie, call it by its name.

    1. They better get used to it.

      Keith Olbermann has no problem calling a lie a lie.

      I wish he were on a major network during prime time.

    And certain unethical media and communications outlets continue to promote and feed the liars on their soapbox lying their azz off. If they keep saying it? It will still be a lie and untrue. Most Americans are too smart for the liars.

    More proof that once you go all-in for nonsense (religion), you are more susceptible to believing in more nonsense.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
