Ellis Stefnick (RN.Y.) was reprimanded by critics for recklessly blaming “ordinary pedo grifters” for America’s lack of infant formula, her office reportedly insisted that she didn’t mean it at all. Was.
Extremist MP’s spokesperson said she was not blaming “pedophile” grifters, But “pedo” meant “children,” author and activist Parker Malloy reported Saturday — which still doesn’t make sense.
“Pedo” or the pedophile QAnon is a well-known dogwhistle to conspiracy theorists who are unabashedly convinced that “Pedo” Democrats are running an international child sex trafficking operation.
Stefnick’s outrageous Twitter post came after the strange abortion was captured by an unknown “component” in a recorded phone call to the legislator’s office, Malloy reported in “The Present Age.”
Neither Stefanik nor a representative could immediately be reached for comment, and HuffPost could not confirm that the speaker on the recording was Stefanik’s spokesman. But the recorded voice appears to be similar to an answering machine answering calls to a Stefanic constituent office.
The anonymous caller asks who the “normal Pedo griffers” are, which Stefanik refers to in his tweet.
“First of all, this is his personal Twitter. Just have to look into it,” the employee replied, pointing out that the office had received several calls regarding the issue. ‘ is not short for ‘, it is ‘pedo’, as in ‘kids’.”
“So these are the people who are raising their kids?” asks confused caller. “How are they raising their kids? Or are they the children who are groaning?”
The person replies: “No, not the children, who are greeting… the people who are grifting on behalf of the children.”
When asked to explain how it works, the spokesperson says he “can’t really analyze it.” The full phone call can be heard here,
An employee gave a slightly different version of “pedo grifters” to The Independent on Friday, saying they were Republicans in The Lincoln Project — but apparently didn’t even try to explain it.
Mediaite was also told on Friday, apparently without any explanation: “Pedo refers to the Grifters Lincoln Project.”
The Lincoln Project is a PAC founded and run by Republicans critical of Donald Trump. There’s nothing linking the Lincoln Project to a lack of infant formula — or pedophilia.
Critics warned Friday that Stefnik’s irresponsible “pedo” tweet could trigger violence against imaginary enemies. A gunman opened fire in a Washington, DC, pizzeria in 2016 that was baselessly identified as the headquarters of an alleged child trafficking operation. No one got injured. The “Pizzagate” gunman was sentenced to four years in prison.
Stefanik was also reprimanded in his tweet for his heartless calls to deny infant formula for immigrant babies to be processed or detained in federal facilities. The government is required by law to provide the requirements in such situations.
Stefnik blames the Biden administration for the current shortage of infant formula in the US. Administration does not create formulas; It is made and sold by three major companies, which have little competition and a powerful control of the market.
The shortages were triggered by supply chain issues related to the pandemic, combined with a massive safety recall by Abbott Nutrition, the largest formula maker, which was asked earlier this year to close its Michigan plant due to contamination concerns. was forced to.
