“Satanic” Pedophile Theory of Aaron Swartz’s Suicide

“Was Aaron Swartz Killed By an MIT Satanic Child Porn Ring?”

I found this strange article, originally posted at, via David Icke’s website. It was written by Yoichi Shimatsu, a conspiranoid “journalist” specializing in child prostitution and pornography. I have no idea who this guy is, but he provides some telling background information:

From 2003-2009, Shimatsu was involved with an all-male team of volunteer anti-pedophilia activists that traveled to Cambodia to investigate some rumours, including allegations that former Newsweek Tokyo bureau chief Bernard Krisher had snapped photos of naked babies and put them on display at the Foreign Correspondents Club in Hong Kong. Shimatsu claims the Correspondents Club was a “den of pedophiles connected with the Jimmy Savile case”, and that the former British Governor of Hong Kong, Chris Patton [sic], is “suspected as a high-level protector of the satanic BBC rapist [Savile] and his old-boy circle”. Lord Patten, it should be noted, publicly condemned the late Savile and encouraged the posthumous investigations into his alleged child molestation.

Shimatsu contends that hacktivist Aaron Swartz was also investigating the “vile pedophile elite”, using the JSTOR issue as a “cover for his covert investigation into MIT wrongdoing”, which was somehow linked to crimes against children perpetrated by what Shimatsu terms the “military-corporate-pharmaco-porno” complex. Swartz was far too bright and ambitious to be wasting his time swiping inexpensive documents from JSTOR, Shimatsu argues, so it’s almost certain that he was actually planning to expose MIT professors who have been supplying child pornography to an elite clientele that includes State Department and military officials, intelligence agencies, major corporations, and even people in the White House. He provides absolutely zero evidence to support any of this.
Shimatsu appears to base just about all of his “MIT pedophile” theory on Nicholas Negroponte, the professor who founded the MIT Media Lab. Shimatsu’s “team” in Cambodia had zeroed in on an orphanage supported by Krisher that had a satellite-link tower, which was supposedly being used to “uplink child-porn videos and connect American pedophiles to their little sweethearts”.
Unnamed teachers at the orphanage allegedly told Shimatsu the satellite communication system was installed and maintained by Negroponte. One teacher told him, “Nick was a frequent visitor and one of the orphanage sponsors who arranged the weekend pajama parties in the city whenever foreign VIPs arrived”. Shimatsu concluded that Negroponte used Phnom Penh as a base from which to send encrypted child pornography back to secret databases at MIT.
The One Child One Laptop program [sic] initiated by Negroponte is a transparent ploy for pedophiles to have 24/7 access to their child victims, he asserts.
As one can always expect from, he also goes out of his way to inform us that Negroponte and his brother are Zionists with “family origins in the Jewish community of Greece”.

So what the flipping hell does any of this have to do with Aaron Swartz? Well, based on the surveillance footage used to indict Swartz, Shimatsu has reached some conclusions about what the brilliant young hacker was really doing at MIT. Here’s his “evidence”:

  • The length of time it took Swarz’s laptop to download the material indicates it was “high-quality video” rather than just documents.
  • The server he targeted could not be hacked; it could only be accessed via a dedicated line, indicating the server had strong encryption designed to protect illegal content. [I am assured by people far more technically gifted than myself that nearly any server can be hacked if it’s connected to the Internet, and that this surely would not have presented a challenge to Swartz.]
  • MIT didn’t own the JSTOR material, yet filed theft charges against Swartz. The actual proprietor, ITHAKA, was not the chief plaintiff in the case.
  • Swartz was reportedly dissatisfied with his job working for Reddit/Wired. In Shimatsu’s view, this was probably because Reddit had “gained profitable notoriety for its sub-edit groups that promoted discussion and images on underage sex, snuff porn, violent rape of adolescent girls, incest and abusive language.” Reddit’s worst offender was “Violentacrez“, who turned out to be Michael Brutsch, a former soldier with a wife and kids.

Shimatsu then provides additional “evidence” of child pornography at MIT by detailing the backgrounds of a handful of Media Lab employees. Joi Ito is singled out because he once owned a nightclub and was Timothy’s Leary’s godson. Stewart Brand is suspect because he endorses science and technology. Frank Moss once worked in Israel. Worst of all, the Media Lab is involved with military-related projects. “MIT Media Lab is yet another spin-off from the all-powerful MK-ULTRA and DARPA. No wonder it’s been producing child porn and involved in overseas pedophilia.”

And now Shimatsu’s anti-Semitic “anti-Zionist” side comes out swinging, as he bemoans the “assault on Aaron Swartz” as one more example of a “crusading American Jewish individual being persecuted, punished and likely executed by their Zionist ‘brethren'”, his death a “microcosm of the sort of brutal mafia enforcement within the Jewish ‘community’, which unfortunately has gone nearly unreported in the Zionist-controlled media.”

So that’s pretty much it. That’s Shimatsu’s evidence that Aaron Swartz was hot on the trail of MIT pedophiles.
His “evidence” that Swartz was murdered amounts to the fact that Swartz had a small waist, meaning his belt wouldn’t be long enough to hang himself.
As for the “Satanic pedophiles”: the article includes just one use use of the word “satanic”, and there is no further explanation of how Satanism is connected to any of the alleged criminal activity Shimatsu describes. It’s a fat, juicy red herring to fill out the story’s headline, which might just as well read “Why Yoichi Shimatsu Doesn’t Like MIT or Zionists”.


Satanic Panic is Alive and Well

Satanic panic is alive and well. The crafty and the naive alike exploit it to achieve their own ends – whether that’s putting the fear of God in people, prosecuting an alleged criminal, or just selling lots of DVDs. Just one recent example:

– In a recent interview with David Icke, conspiranoid radio host Alex Jones gave several examples of what he considers Satanic sacrifice and deviant sexuality. “We know that Satanists sacrifice people. They get caught doing it all the time.”
He declared that France’s Minister of Culture, Frederic Mitterand, bragged in a book that he “goes to slave camps and rapes little boys”. Mitterand even refers to this practice as a “ritual”.
This is pure bullshit. The book Jones refers to (though he clearly hasn’t read it) is Mitterand’s 2005 autobiographical novel, The Bad Life, in which he describes visiting young male prostitutes (young men, not children) in Thailand. No “slave camps”. No “rape”. No “little boys”. However, Mitterand did push the envelope by describing his reaction the sex trade in Bangkok thusly: “All these rituals of the market for youths, the slave market, excite me enormously”.

Icke stated, “Roman Polanski is a practicing Satanist.” He said Sharon Tate’s murder was directly connected to Satanism. This is pure bullshit. The Manson Family murders had nothing to do with Satanism, and making a film about devil worshippers does not make you a Satanist. Period.
He went on to explain one of his central conspiracy theories, that the elite routinely rape and sacrifice prepubescent children to obtain their energy (and blood, since they are blood-drinking, shapeshifting Reptiles from another dimension).

Jones listed the cultures that have practiced ritual human sacrifice: Mesoamericans, Africans, Aztecs, Asians, Babylonians, Romans, Greeks, Middle Eastern tribes. All had high priests who worshipped the same snake god and followed the same “secret mathematics religion”, and all sacrificed healthy people of all ages and both sexes. Most tortured their victims. Most used hallucinogens (as does Icke himself, but Icke stayed mum at this point in the broadcast). Note, please, that Jones didn’t mention Celtic or Nordic sacrifice.
Again, pure bullshit. There is no “secret mathematics religion”, and the cultures mentioned had an array of gods (not just a single “snake god”, though a few did incorporate snakes or serpents into their cosmology and/or mythology at one time or another – as does Christianity, which Jones favors, and the chemognostic New Age “shamanism” that Icke appreciates).

Jones went on to say that Tony Blair likes to be possessed by the spirit of “white light”, and that homosexual orgies take place during Skull & Bones initiation ceremonies. Blair is Catholic now, so his alleged ecstatic states have nothing to do with Satanism. And while I’m sure college secret societies have some homoerotic aspects, no one has ever reported gay orgies (or orgies of any kind) at S&B.

Government Satanism mockumentary

I found on YouTube a trailer for a documentary (or mockumentary) called “The Brandon Corey Story”, produced by something called TruthSeeker TV (watch it here).
Brandon Corey was supposedly a researcher who uncovered Dick Cheney’s ties to Satanism. The trailer features David Icke giving advice to Corey, promises of Bohemian Grove footage, and hints that a man mysteriously vanished after investigating these things. I assume it’s a mockumentary, but I don’t have the time to look into this, as I’m working on several other projects at the moment. If anyone has information on Brandon Corey or TruthSeeker TV, let me know.

Update: Numerous bloggers have proven The Brandon Corey Story to be a mockumentary; none of the people or events mentioned in the film actually existed or occurred. Most of the film’s viewers had already reached that conclusion, if their forum comments are any indication, but there are a few hardcore Reptilian-agenda believers out there who aren’t so willing to let this go…

On the Noble Realms forum, “Defender 123” wrote: “Yes it is a hoax, however, I do feel it is trying to bring certain things to light, such as Bohemian Grove. And the Satanism thing.

“Busta” at Warrior Matrix , in the thread “Are Reptilians real?” wrote: “It has to be seen for what it is – a movie – but one based on fact.

And Jeff Wells, on his blog Rigorous Intuition, acknowledges the film is a hoax but describes it as, “a slick piece of disinfotainment that exploits our authentic apprehensions by fabricating evidence upon legitimate suspicions“. [emphasis mine]

The mockumentary follows (fictional) millionaire investigator Brandon Corey as he infiltrates a Reptilian Satanic ceremony conducted in an underground chamber at Bohemian Grove. He is caught and, as punishment, two of his fingers are removed.

The film is marketed as “the film Dick Cheney doesn’t want you to see.” A promotional blurb from David Icke comments that if the film is real, it proves everything he’s been saying for the past 15 years.

Sadly, I think the film is “proving” many of his assertions about Reptilian alien overlords and Satanic sacrifice even without being real. As with The Death of the President, the lines between fiction and fantasy have been blurred to a point where popular assumptions about reality virtually become real. Just as people are saying, “Sure, the Bush administration hasn’t framed a Syrian for any assassination….but they would if they got the chance”, people who have viewed The Brandon Corey Story are saying, “Sure, Dick Cheney hasn’t been seen drinking human blood or morphing into a huge lizard-like beast that worships Satan…but he will be, sooner or later.”

I’m also concerned that films like this will encourage further infiltrations (read: trespassing) of Bohemian Grove, possibly resulting in violence. It seems that no matter how many times former employees of the Grove speak out, insisting nothing occultic is happening in those woods, people will continue to believe it’s a Devil’s Playground.
