News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News Briefs

Move over, Liz Crokin, someone on the west coast has shoved Pizzagate out of the spot light! Welcome to Doughnutgate!

(There is a one-hour+ video which is tl;dw at the link.)

A rising far-right conspiracy theory claims that a popular donut shop in Portland, OR, Voodoo Doughnuts, is a front for child trafficking. As of this writing, a YouTube video featuring the claim has more than 63,000 views, while the hashtag #donutgate appears to be gaining traction on Twitter. The allegation is an echoand an offshoot of Pizzagate, a conspiracy theory President Donald Trump supporters popularized during the 2016 election cycle, which baselessly claimed Democratic politicians operated a pedophilia ring from Washington, D.C. pizzeria Comet Ping Pong.

And yes, the conspiracy theorists tie it to Comet Ping Pong (and thus to the Podesta Bolognese sauce) and as an added bonus, Q-Anon makes a guest appearance. They got it all!

If you have not had VooDoo Doughnuts, it is totally worth the wait in line, except for your eternal soul being damned, it is one fine doughnut.

    Yes, a donut shop is the best place to operate your criminal conspiracy under the noses of every cop in town. Brilliant!

    Comet pizza is pretty good pizza though not as good as any number of local family owned operations. Mostly, it’s just a fun place to go. (BTW, I assume this BS is tied into that threatened Neo-Nazi march planned this weekend for Porland? Always good to have an event/product tie-in for marketing purposes. These people are so lame.)

      I’m going to allege that someone looked at their site, hovered over the wedding doughnuts picture and saw a rainbow design. Isn’t that enough to condemn the shop?? That along with the word “Voodoo” in the shop name? Plus I am sure they have interpreted all the bumper stickers by now.
      Come to think, their Portland location may well have inspired a search for a new victim of this sort of witch hunt.
      Aw, heck, I am just stalling before I watch the video as long as I can tolerate.

    I guess the real time visuals of keeping immigrant children in cages is too iniquitous to comprehend, so these assholes have to make up shit about cannibals and….donuts?
    Oh…Reddit.

    I will just happen to be visiting Voodoo Donuts tomorrow. But my wife will be with me so I can only get donuts. She never lets me get the child porn.
