The Doge Conspiracy

I think I have it all figured out.


[1.] Elon Musk

[2.] has been promoting Dogecoin,

[3.] and Doges were the rulers of Venice,

[4.] with a title cognate to the English Duke or Latin Dux,

[5.] but also …

Il Duce, which is to say Benito Mussolini,

[6.] notorious Fascist, whose party was named after the fasces,

the ancient Roman symbol of magisterial authority

[7.] that also appears on

the official seal of the shadowy eminences grise at the Administrative Office of the United States Courts.

Connect the dots, sheeple!

Notes to self: 1. Work in Nikola Tesla, Donald Trump's uncle, the House of Barbarigo, Knights Templar. 2. Needs Jews, space lasers.
