Zach Mora & the Crusader Kids

Publisher’s Note: The following is an excerpt from “The Crusaders,” a section in Chapter XIII of Set the World on Fire.

Publisher’s Note, 12 August 2018: “Delilah” has issued a public apology for her role in this conspiracy and has departed from public life. We have accepted her apology and removed her real name and aliases. Another person who was part of this conspiracy has privately apologized after divulging to the Publisher everything about the conspiracy. He, too, has departed from public life, and we have removed his name entirely.

         

Delilah, whose real name has been excised from this book due to her public apology for this episode and her promise to depart from public life, was added as our public relations person at The Revolutionary Conservative just before Charlottesville. Little did any of us know that she would turn out to be one of the most subversive snakes the right-wing has ever seen.

Delilah joined with an internet crusader named Zachary Ryan Mora, who, despite having known all along that I was a Pagan, abruptly left a project we were working on at The Revolutionary Conservative when he found Jesus and decided to wage an internet slander campaign in His Holy Name. I did not know this at the time; it was divulged to me later on by several people Mora had tried to draw into his delusional witch hunt.

Despite several red flags, including her vicious defamation of others with whom she had worked, her insistence on claiming to be from another country, and a handful of other things, I did not see through Delilah soon enough. But the most insidious thing was not a red flag at all, because it was something I couldn’t see: it was the way people around me started speaking to me differently.

This entire plot was so well-devised, and by such duplicitous snakes, that it passed completely under my radar. It was not Brittany but another woman who had clued me in to what was going on, and that was this: A group of Christian crusaders headed by Mora had banded together and formed a plot to rid the right-wing of Thelemites, Satanists, and Pagans. As the Christ said, “Ye shall know them by their fruits” – and their fruits showed that their methods were so underhanded, degraded, and corrupted that they would have made the Marxists proud.

Delilah, who joined our publication just before Charlottesville; Zachary Ryan Mora, who worked with me on a project concerning leftist journalists until his abrupt & unexplained departure when he began this crusade; Anthony Rodriguez, who spares no opportunity to tell everyone that I am a Satan worshiper in every comment thread he finds my name; Martin Buchanan, a clinically insane troll who calls married women whores and threatens to rape the women who turn him down; and Peter Sorrentino, the Homeland Security employee and total fraud I expelled from all of my political activities due to his disgusting character: these are the upright Christians seeking to rid the right-wing of the evil Pagans through some of the most disgusting behavior I have witnessed in all the years recounted in this book. This sort of backroom slander is not the purview of the right-wing. And from what I understand, it is not exactly Christian behavior, either. Yet this is the sort of filth that festers in a movement built on social media trolling as opposed to accountability.

By the time of this writing, their slander campaign has escalated to the stuff of legend. Piecing together different parts of my life known to the public through interviews, speeches, and various hit pieces in the leftist media, they have concocted just about the most epic conspiracy theory I have ever heard. The story is that my Pilgrimage to the Mojave in the Spring of 2013, the ascetic diet I undertook in the Fall of 2016, my religious practices generally, and my sadism toward my harem of women, all add up to one logical conclusion: clearly I am an undercover operative of the Order of Nine Angles, a neo-Nazi Satanist cult hellbent on colonizing the Milky Way Galaxy – and all of these religious practices were in fact preparation for ritualistic human sacrifice, which I have been practicing all over the world in order to hasten the Apocalypse. It is the most amazing conspiracy theory I have ever heard, and so I refuse to deny it.
