Alphabet Mafia

"Alphabet mafia” has at least three different meanings.

Government agencies (such as the current FBI, CIA, NSA, IRS, FCC, FDA, EPA and much more) have been called “alphabet soup” since the 1930s. “Like, James Bond? Star Trek? The alphabet mafia?” was posted on Twitter on September 18, 2010.  “The FCC needs to be dis banded along with the rest of the alphabet mafia” was posted on Twitter on November 22, 2014. “Get rid of FDA EPA and all the alphabet mafia” was posted on Twitter on September 20, 2015.

Media outlets (such as ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, BBC and much more) have been called an “alphabet mafia.” “Chuck Todd is part of the Alphabet Mafia” was posted on Twitter on December 7, 2011. “U do well 2 not watch the 3 or 4 letter alphabet mafia news outlets of Europe and America, but manipulation doesn’t stop there” was posted on Twitter on July 7, 2014. ABC has been called the “Alphabet Network.”

The “Gay Mafia” has also been called an “alphabet mafia” after its letters (such as “LGBTQ”). “‘Alphabet mafia’ out for the Scouts” was a headline in 2013.


Wiktionary: Mafia
the Mafia
1. (specifically) An international criminal organization of Sicilian origin operating in Italy and the United States.
2. (by extension) Any organized crime syndicate operating internationally in high-level organized crime; often with a modifying adjective, such as a nationality.

CULTURE ‘Alphabet mafia’ out for the Scouts
Thursday, January 31, 2013 | Charlie Butts (OneNewsNow.com)
The Boy Scouts of America’s proposal to drop its no-homosexual membership policy on a national level has alarmed some religious organizations that support 70 percent of the scouting units.

Some major corporations have joined homosexual activists in cancelling donations as a way to pressure the Boy Scouts into changing its policy. Another pressure point is sex education—activist groups want their version taught to Scouts instead of leaving the conversation up to the parents.
