abramovichGrade wenn man denkt, der US-Wahlkampf könnte nicht noch bizarrer werden: Trump Supporters Think Hillary’s Campaign Manager Is A Satanic Occultist Because of a Wikileaks Email About Marina Abramovic. Einerseits: Der Spuk hat in nur wenigen Tagen ein Ende. Andererseits: Der Scheiß wird uns in irgendeiner Form garantiert erhalten bleiben und Drumpf arbeitet bereits an seinem Medienunternehmen, das dann genau solche Storys wie diese hier pushen wird. The Horror The Horror, nonstop ad infinitum.

Overnight, someone discovered an email in the most recent dump, from Marina Abramovic, perhaps the most famous performance artist of all time, to Podesta’s brother Tony, a high-powered lobbyist and noted collector of contemporary art. The email, which Tony then forwarded to John, read: „Dear Tony, I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining? All my love, Marina“.

“Spirit Cooking” is the title of a set of etchings that Abramovic produced in the mid-’90s, which included “recipes” with ingredients like “spit of the artist” and “a ruby that has been soaking for three days,” and instructions like “hold a python on your lap while sitting on a block of ice.” […] Trump-supporting websites like InfoWars, Drudge, Danger and Play, and Conservative Outfitters all seized on the news, treating Abramovic not as the world-renowned artist she is, but some kind of backwoods occultist witch. Conservative Outfitters called the invitation the “most disturbing email leaked from Hillary Clinton’s inner circle.” Danger and Play and Infowars made the absurd insinuation that the message was somehow tied to child sex trafficking. Wikileaks did not help when it tweeted out the email, treating it as an actual scandalous piece of news.
