Mainstream media attack Pete Evans claiming he has made wild claims about Australia being run by “ pedo’s” despite plenty of evidence highlighting just how big of an issue child sex trafficking is
Here is the mainstream media article by Demeter Stamell of Daily Mail desperately trying to spin that it’s a conspiracy theory despite overwhelming evidence highlighting its in fact not a theory.
Pete Evans has made yet another bizarre and baseless claim in a post on Instagram Stories on Wednesday.
The 47-year-old celebrity chef shared a post claiming Australia ‘is run by pedos [paedophiles]’.
The post was originally shared by a fellow conspiracy theorist, with Pete also including a link back to the original.

It included a screenshot of a Daily Mail Australia report on Wednesday that Victorian sexual assault survivors could face prison time just for telling their stories.
Pete reposted a screenshot of the story, along with the caption: ‘It only makes sense when you realise this country is run by pedos’.
‘When a country is run by pedos, they will silence those who can name them, and pass laws to take your kids under the guise of COVID health care directives,’ read the caption on the original post.

‘You better hurry up and wake up Australia… Most won’t realise until their kids are taken to a camp by these creeps.’
The bizarre claim is in line with an unfounded conspiracy theory put out by the extremist QAnon movement.
Followers of QAnon believe that US President Donald Trump is leading the fight against paedophiles and their supposed ‘deep state’ allies, which include governments, the media and businesses.

While the conspiracy theory has been making the rounds on the internet for years, it gained traction earlier this month, fuelled by the coronavirus pandemic.
Adding to its momentum is the fact Trump has so far refused to discredit it, giving followers more ammunition.
According to legend, there’s a person behind the extremist conspiracy theory, known simply as ‘Q’, who supposedly works as a US government insider with top security clearance.
Peddling misinformation: Followers of QAnon have also downplayed the severity of the coronavirus pandemic, with Pete repeating these claims on his own social media accounts
Followers of QAnon have also downplayed the severity of the coronavirus pandemic, with Pete repeating these claims on his own social media accounts.
They have also been responsible for the spread of medical disinformation and originating several hoaxes.
The former My Kitchen Rules judge was fined $25,200 back in April after he falsely claimed his $15,000 BioCharger lamp could potentially cure coronavirus.
He’s since made several other damaging claims about the pandemic, which has so far led to over 820,000 deaths globally.
Last month, Pete urged people in Victoria not to wear face masks, after it was made mandatory by the state government.
He also claimed that COVID-19 was a ‘f**king hoax’ and said that the pandemic ‘doesn’t compare to what is happening in the world on a large scale’.
