Trump v. Media

Michael Warren at TWS:
President Trump tweeted Saturday night a link to a sycophantic website that traffics in conspiracy theories and has aligned itself to the alt-right and white nationalist movements. Here’s the Trump tweet, which promotes’s “President Donald Trump Accomplishment List”...
The website’s name, MAGAPILL, references Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” along with the “red pill” concept popular among the online alt-right and white nationalist movements. Taking a red pill in these circles refers to being awakened to the “reality” of the alt-right worldview, an allusion to a plot device in the 1999 science fiction film The Matrix.
A number of other old pages at the domain are inaccessible, but the website’s Twitter page remains active, tweeting out a mix of conspiracy theories, Fox News videos, news articles from mainstream outlets, and retweets of President Trump. In one recent tweet, MAGAPILL put out an unsourced image rife with outlandish conspiracies about the people and entities who control our institutions:

The image includes levels of the supposed conspiracy, each with an image of a rabbit going down a hole to the next level (another Matrix/alt-right allusion). Among the conspiracies listed are: “false flag terrorism”, genetically modified crops, the use of “algorithmic censorship” of social media, “rogue intel factions” at the CIA and Mossad, a “network of global corporate control”, “Luciferian rituals”, secret societies like the Knights Templar and the Jesuits, and “trauma based mind control.” At the bottom of the entire conspiracy are the “Overlords” from “Bloodline Families” that include the aristocracy and royalty, the papacy, and the banking families, all of whom apparently practice a Luciferian religion that worships “the Dark Side through rituals, including child/human sacrifice.”
No wonder he retweets from an anti-Catholic conspiracy outfit.  When his father was reportedly involved with the Klan, its focus in NYC was against Catholic immigrants.
