If you thought the Donald Trump presidential race was strange to begin with, did you ever think he’s just part of a worldwide Jesuit conspiracy and a secret agent for the St. Ignatius battalions?

That’s the phony baloney claim made on Reddit recently which has since gone to top of the Google search charts and drawn a response from a prominent jesuit in the magazine America.

As a conspiracy theory this knocks Obama born in Kenya into a cocked hat.

But as Father Jim McDermott of America magazine writes, it is one that has clearly gained followers

He writes” “I know, it’s just one crazy link. Except it’s the one ranked highest by Google.

“It is also not the only post in the top 10 with a similar message. In fact only two of the top ten links about Donald Trump and Jesuit don’t have something to do with the apparent Jesuit-Trump conspiracy that no one has had the courtesy to let me know we are in on. (If you only have time to sample one piece from this magical universe, may I suggest the first few minutes of this YouTube post about why, during the “Jesuit Paris Attacks,” a woman believes Donald Trump got switched out by his clone. It begins “I was watching Fox News this morning.”

It seems where the Donald is concerned no theory is outlandish enough.

The author of the viral reddit post states Donald Trump is a “false flag” candidate, or not what he appears to be and writes:

“Donald Trump has been the subject of media frenzy as of late. It seems that a considerable amount of those who subscribe to alternative sources of information are Trump supporters. They see him as some kind of rebel, going against both the Republican and Democratic parties .

“Could it be though, that Donald Trump is a "false flag candidate" being used to secure the vote of the ever-increasing independent constituency in order to inevitably lull the US into a false sense of positive political novelty and thus to subsequently impose Jesuitical right-wing fascism leading to a nationwide race war as devised by the masters of class adversarialism, the Sons of Loyola?

The article goes on: “It very well could be. Here is why:

“Trump claims to be Presbyterian, yet he attended Jesuit Fordham University for two years and then transferred to the covertly Jesuit-controlled University of Pennsylvania.

Ah that’s it Donald attending Fordham University made it clear he was a Jesuit stooge.

There’s also an anti-semitic passage saying the Jews and Jesuits are all in this together--SURPRISE.

He even investigates Trump’s children. At the end the writer concludes: “There you have it; Trump, in addition to being affiliated with both Jesuit Fordham and covertly Jesuit UPenn, has at least three children who are all alumni of Penn and notorious Jesuit Georgetown University!

“Whether it be Trump, Jeb Bush, Hillary Clinton or even Bernie Sanders that ends up winning the 2016 election, all of these candidates are connected to Rome and all will only serve to implement the tyrannical, neo-Romanist policies of the Papacy and its professed soldiers of the Jesuits.”

I always thought Sanders, who is Jewish was really a secret Jesuit archbishop didn’t you? Bishop Bernie.

Lord what is the word coming to Donald Trump a secret Jesuit agent, the pope trying to take over America (he’s a Jesuit too, though he did just accuse Trump of not being Christian, which puts something of a spanner in the works for this plot).

Maybe we can start a new rally cry Vote for Donald Trump’s clone (let's call him Dolly after the first cloned sheep.

Our slogan? Hello President Dolly, goodbye impostor Donald.
