Fact or Fiction: The United States Are Controlled by Satan-Worshiping Pedophiles Who Run a Global Child Sex-Trafficking Operation?

This sounds like a SNL skit or an article for The Onion, but according to a newly released survey, 15 percent of Americans agree with the false premise central to the QAnon movement that government, media, and financial worlds in the United States are controlled by Satan-worshiping pedophiles who run a global child sex-trafficking operation.

The finding is contained in a Public Religion Research Institute study released last Thursday based on interviews of more than 5,000 U.S. adults in March.

Polling that relies on agree/disagree questions can overstate the extent to which respondents actually hold such beliefs, but the survey nevertheless underscores that the allegations of the QAnon movement have been embraced by a significant number of Americans.

In the survey, 23 percent of Republicans agreed with the statement. By contrast, 8 percent of Democrats and 14 percent of independents agreed with the statement.

Well, those data would be concerning if you assumed that the respondents are serious. Currently I do not.

Americans currently contain a large component which wishes to throw a monkey wrench into “the system” as it currently is, and that system includes the all too haughty polls conduced by “pollsters.”

For example, I feel that political polls turn our elections into contests, the most used term is “into horse races.” Consequently when I receive a phone call or an email message asking for me to share my opinions, I decline. “Thanks, I don’t do polls.”

A less passive response would be to answer their questions and give the most effed-up responses one could dream up and this is what I think is going on.

This is, I suspect, in response to the government using lies and propaganda to “control the population” to the point that it has little to no credibility left.

Take the UFO issue as an example. We now know that the government/military set up programs to obfuscate, lie, and mislead the public over and over and over. When this was finally admitted, was anyone really surprised? Were you surprised?

The lying has become so brazen that politicians will say one thing yesterday and the opposite today and when this is pointed out to them, they shrug “Fake news!” We’ve been getting gaslighted by our own government for so long it no longer causes outrage or even draws comment.

The Apostle Paul vehemently said, in his own writings (we think), that “I am not a liar!” Apparently back then, being a liar had consequences. Now it seems to be only a qualification for becoming a politician.

Footnote on Irony It is now recognized that fear is the strongest lever in the propagandist’s toolbox. So, why was the lame excuse used in all of those UFO sightings, that the public wasn’t ready for the truth. I can’t think of any better lever for the ruling class to use than the fear of aliens. Turning human politicians into “Satan-worshiping pedophiles who run a global child sex-trafficking operation” seems peanuts compared to what one could claim to be the “alien threat.” Imagine the fears: They eat human babies! (They must be atheists.) They claim to have proof that their gods exist! They want to move here! They are fleeing a way more powerful alien species! Their penises are enormous and their sexual appetite for human girls is unbounded! . . . and on and on.

Controlling that narrative would be easy. The “authorities” could spend money up the yin-yang to deal with the alien threat. Military contractors would be sending their neighbor’s kids to prestigious colleges, they would be so “rolling in it.”

Funny they didn’t think of that then, but maybe their new “transparency” on the issue is just the first salvo in such a campaign, finding that the old levers aren’t as effective as they once were.

  1. I think the problem with using aliens to generate fear is that it takes a lot of effort and elaborate machinations to produce a believable threat – the people in charge have to have stories of abductions, piles of semi-eaten babies, very public UFO sightings make it seem like a real threat, and make sure the truth doesn’t leak out too much to ruin the whole narrative. And second, a fear of aliens can get us united with Russia, China, Iran, Mexico, Pakistan, North Korea, and all of these already very real and perfectly usable bogeymen that require trillions in taxpayers money will just go to waste.

  2. Can you imagine the look on Yuri’s face when his late night (semi-drunk) post that sparked all this was actually picked up by some Americans and shared… and then shared again… and then shared again.

    His boss at the the Internet Research Agency must have pissed himself with laughter.

  3. Okay, I’m getting confused. Just who, exactly, is controlling us now? The Elders of Zion, the Illuminati, George Soros, Bill Gates, the Masons, the lizard people from Andromeda wearing skinsuits to look like politicians (or in Mitch Mcconnell’s case they don’t have to bother with a disguise) or the baby eating satanists? I think I need to start a spreadsheet just to keep track of who our current masters are.

  4. And I always thought the guilty party was Manchester United supporters? Perhaps they have gone into hiding for a while now that Christiano Renaldo has re-joined the team?

  5. The answer is “No, the Catholic Church does not worship Satan”.
    (The Church doesn’t literally “control the United States”, but it is the most influential non-government organization in the country, with a number of laws and a vast number of less consequential aspects of society pandering to them.)

    • Clever. :o) BTW, Satan is a loyal servant of Yahweh (read the book of Job). If he weren’t why would he still be around?

      • There is no “Satan!” C’mon, Steve. You read my book.

        Further, although one finds the term “Satan” in the Book of Job, many bibles have a footnote that explains the actual Hebrew word is ha-satan, which translates to “the accuser” in English. The term does NOT refer (in the Judaic tradition) to the same being or entity known to Christians, who is an antagonist and enemy towards God.

        Sheesh!

        • There are many “satans” in the Bible, and those are small adversaries. Ha-satan, is the top dog of all satans and is the one that morphed into our Satan. Where the devil came from I don’t know (other than nightmares, maybe).

          I have been reading about this for a long time and I am probably confused as so many different takes on this topic are available (typical of Bible studies, no?).

          • Yes, there are many takes on the subject. However, the considerable research I did when writing my book convinced me there simply is no Big Bad Guy. Of course believers need a scapegoat so there’s no doubt he will continue to loom large among the faithful.
