What is the Frazzledrip conspiracy theory?

QANON supporter Rep Marjorie Taylor Green has pushed yet another baseless conspiracy theory targeting prominent Democrats called Frazzledrip.

The unhinged claim has deep ties to the QAnon and Pizzagate conspiracy theories and first surfaced on YouTube in 2018.

What is the Frazzledrip conspiracy theory?

The kooky "frazzledrip" theory first surfaced on conspiracy site YourNewsWire, now known as News Punch, in April 2018.

The theory claims that a video found on the laptop of former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner, who was jailed for sexting with a minor in 2017, began circulating on the "dark web," according to Vice.

The video – which, to be clear, doesn't exist at all – was allegedly found in a folder on the laptop's hard drive called "life insurance" and was titled "frazzledrip."

The fake report claimed that the video allegedly shows Hillary Clinton and her former aide Huma Abedin, Weiner's ex-wife, raping and mutilating a young girl.

At the end of the so-called video, the girl bleeds out before Clinton and Abedin drink the blood during a Satanic ritual sacrifice.

Hundreds of YouTube videos, each with thousands of views, are dedicated to the violent and untrue conspiracy theory, according to Vox.

What did Marjorie Taylor Greene say about it?

Controversial Georgia Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene made Facebook comments about Frazzledrip in May 2018, which recently resurfaced in a report by nonprofit organization Media Matters for America (MMFA).

The report came days after she was slammed for liking social media posts calling for the execution of Clinton and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Greene shared a photo of the mother of slain NYPD detective Miosotis Familia, to which a commenter replied that Familia had "watched a horrific video" that was allegedly ripped from Weiner's laptop.

Screenshots taken by MMFA show that person claimed that the video showed Abedin and Clinton "filleting" a child's face.

Green liked the comment and replied: "Yes Familia."

In a follow-up comment, she said: "Most people honestly don't know so much. The msm disinformation warfare has won for too long!"
