Pete Buttigieg is an undercover CIA agent according to a new conspiracy theory

The far right is known for it’s loony conspiracy theories, like QAnon and Pizzagate. But while they right dominates the tin-foil hat market, it doesn’t have a complete monopoly. Case in point: some on the far left think that Pete Buttigieg is a CIA agent.

Buttigieg has denied that he has any connections to the spy agency, but in one of those circular arguments that simply can’t be refuted, his critics say that of course he would deny it. “Anyone who says they weren’t involved with the CIA clearly is not a spy,” an article on the DailyDot claims, sarcastically.

The origin of the conspiracy theory is Buttigieg’s resume. Harvard, the consulting firm McKinsey, a stint in the military — all of these are proof positive that Buttigieg is really part of the Deep State.

“Put together, a picture forms of an elite-educated, multi-language-speaking employee of the CIA’s consulting firm who currently serves as an intelligence officer in the naval reserves,” Steve Poikonen, who hosts a YouTube vlog, told The Daily Beast. “If you created a CIA asset in a lab, you’d wind up with Pete Buttigieg.”

1. These are the same kooks that think, Tom Hanks of all people

is about to imminently be arrested, for his role in a Hollywood pedophile ring. Those articles about, Trump supporters brain chemistry being different than ours, certainly applies to these people.

2. They're always suspicious of people who aren't like them.

Tom Hanks is likeable and talented. Repubs are neither.

Pete is a war veteran. Repubs are chicken hawks. Anyone who was in the service MUST be hooked up.
