Could you link that FBI document explaining pedo-slang that Podesta was allegedly using?

AFAIK there is no such document. The only sourcing for the slang terms was an anonymous 4chan post.

    “hotdog” = boy

    “pizza” = girl

    “cheese” = little girl

    “pasta” = little boy

    “ice cream” = male prostitute

    “walnut” = person of colour

    “map” = semen

    “sauce” = orgy

The FBI document detailing the symbols can be found here: https://wikileaks.org/wiki/FBI_pedophile_symbols

The similarities were rather striking. One pizza place even changed their logo shortly after the comparisons were drawn. This only added more fuel to the fire. http://i.imgur.com/GIRxh8r.jpg

Myself being a huge fan of conspiracy theory I've seen this before: the minds become focussed on finding evidence, discarding Occam's razor, and mining for all the nuggets. What remains are coincidences that appear too good to be random. Compare with the "backwards playing record hidden messages" hype. Once someone points it out to you, your mind starts hearing it too.

P.S.: The "hashes" found in the .jpg images were a dead end / the result of pareidolia.


This document says a heart within a heart is symbol for GirlLover - symbolizes a relationship between an adult and a minor girl.

Wait 'til the conspiracy theorists see the logo for a multinational ice-cream company:



They actually did, and then they tried to find connections between the two. Turning up stuff like:


(A Unilever and Clinton Foundation cooperation found in https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/1596)

and some older abuse charges brought up against people connected with Unilever.

Also consider the possibility that the pedo symbology was inspired by the ice cream logo (and not the other way around).

But most likely just a (meaningful) coincidence. Hearts and spirals are common design elements after all.

So basically this is troll numerology.

Yes, in part. But don't underestimate the deliberate black, grey, and white propaganda elements of all this (see also: "meme magick").
