Right-Wing Group Thinks Painted Crosses in the Desert Are Symbols of Clinton-Connected Pedophile Ring

An Arizona veterans group is pushing the next Pizzagate, but experts say their evidence isn’t as sinister as they claim.

A group of conspiracy-minded citizen investigators hunting for proof of child sex trafficking networks in the Tucson desert have hit on a new piece of supposed evidence: white crosses painted on the ground.

The group claims that the crosses are symbols meant to guide human sex traffickers.

“The coordinates in this video show a human trafficking corridor,” Michael Lewis Arthur Myer, the leader of one group promoting the theory, says in one Facebook video. “‘X’ marks the spot.” But while the theory’s proponents see the crosses as more evidence of an international pedophile conspiracy for the benefit of global elites, experts say the crosses are just left-over tools from aerial mapping surveys.

The crosses are the latest fixation for believers in what they’ve dubbed “Operation Backyard Brawl,” a storyline started by an anti-homelessness group called “Veterans on Patrol” that’s proliferated on right-wing social media. But even as prominent figures on the conspiracy theory right have denounced the Arizona theory as just the latest iteration of Pizzagate, videos about the supposed sex camp continue to draw in tens of thousands of viewers via Facebook and YouTube.

1. Mentioned in another post about right-wingers using pedophilia

They seem to be obsessed with the idea of a pedophile ring or anything to do with child trafficking. I'm starting to think they're compensating for their own sick fantasies by projecting it as a bullshit conspiracy theory.

10. Oh it's insane.

I've documented most of their theories in the Top 10 and they are completely obsessed with pedophiles, pedophilia, and child sex trafficking. These are horrifying crimes, yes. But really they should take a look at their own ICE. If they truly cared about children they'd look at what ICE is doing to them and think differently. But they don't. And probably don't care.

To paraphrase a quote from something Lewis Black said a while back - "It's like playing a game of Six Degrees Of Kevin Bacon, except there's just one degree and Kevin Bacon is a satanic pedophile!".

2. That, or the CT nuts are running a pedophile ring themselves

So they have to concoct an elaborate pack of lies to cover up for themselves.

3. Veterans on Patrol apparently set patrolled camps

for homeless veterans mainly, good intentions, but seemingly getting in over their heads even before we learn those heads are up their asses searching for Martian colonies.

This article from a small local media site suggests the kind of problems these well meaning but not well balanced types were running into in 2016.

4. Churches are part of the conspiracy

and KKK rallies

And anyone who has ever eaten pizza is probably guilty

If you see someone with a cross on a chain around their neck eating pizza, hide your kids.

7. "If you see someone with a cross on a chain around their neck eating pizza, hide your kids"


That's not bad advice if you're in a Catholic Church.
