Usually, if a bunch of insane, racist nimrods follows a politician, that politician does all he can to distance himself from the group, even if their support helps him. There was once a time that if the only person a politician could find who supported their position was a doctor who believed in Demon sperm, that politician would say, “anyone else?” Not Donald Trump. Demon sperm be damned.
Yesterday, Donald Trump said he didn’t know much about QAnon, the far-right racist conspiracy nutjobs currently poisoning the internet. Then he said, “They like me very much” and they’re people who “love their country.”
It’s true. The Q fucknuts like Donald Trump very much. Nazis and Klansmen like him too.
While the Democratic Party is reveling in its diversity and a future that’s black, white, yellow, brown, red, gay, straight, trans, etc, The GOP has a future full of insane racist conspiracy-theory-believing fucknuts to look forward to.
In Georgia, a QAnon candidate has won her primary in a very red district which almost guarantees she’ll be in Congress next year. I hope she sits next to Matt Gaetz.
Marjorie Taylor Greene is a believer and promoter of the QAnon theory that Donald Trump is battling a deep state of cannibalistic saboteurs who worship Satan and traffic children for sex. Greene has a history of making racist, Islamophobic, and anti-Semitic comments. A lot of Republicans are upset at Kevin McCarthy, the House Minority Leader, for not doing more to prevent her victory. The truth is, McCarthy is afraid of these people.
After her victory, Greene said about House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi, “We’re going to kick that bitch out of Congress.” Nice. She also said, “There’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it.” Then, Donald Trump called her a “future Republican star” and a “real winner.”
In the Florida Congressional district where Mar-a-Lago sits, A QAnon believer and Islamophobe, Laura Loomer, just won the GOP primary. Her victory party was attended by Roger Stone, Milo Yiannopoulos, who was too far-right for Breitbart and is a big fan of same-sex pedophilia, and Gavin McInnes, who is the founder of the white nationalist group Proud Boys. Loomer is famous for stuff like getting kicked out of an Andrew Gillum fundraiser and for calling for an alternative to Uber and Lyft that would ban Muslims. Personally, I think there should be an alternative to Uber that bans those little green tree air fresheners. Those things aren’t helping anybody.
The FBI has identified the QAnon movement as a “potential terrorist threat” and the group has been connected to numerous violent acts, including two killings, a kidnapping, vandalism of a church, and a heavily armed standoff near the Hoover Dam. Maybe they believe Hoover was controlled by the cannibalistic Satan guys. The movement started on the dark web on racist message boards with posts from a self-proclaimed government insider identified as “Q.” They’ve been craving recognition from Donald Trump. Now, they’re getting it.
Twitter recently deleted over 7,000 QAnon accounts. Republicans scream this is censoring their freedom of speech to spread racist conspiracy theories. Facebook is strongly considering getting rid of them.
Donald Trump is the conspiracy theory candidate. He started his political career with the baseless belief President Obama wasn’t born in the United States. He’s continued to spread lies and bullshit since taking office. QAnon believes President Obama and Hillary Clinton are still controlling the deep state cannibalistic devil worshipers working to usurp Trump. Some in the Q believe the deep staters people-eating devil worshippers are also lizard people. To be fair, if they’re lizard people, then they’re not cannibals for eating humans…unless of course, they’re also eating other lizard people.
In 2016, a man traveled from North Carolina to fire three shots into Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C. Why? Because he believed Hillary Clinton and John Podesta were operating a child-sex ring from the basement of the pizza shop. This was a conspiracy spread by QAnon. As it turns out, there was not a child-sex ring being operated from the basement of Comet Ping Pong. There wasn’t even a basement.
These are the people the Republican Party isn’t just refusing to reject, but is afraid to alienate. These are the people Donald Trump is praising as “real winners” and the future of the Republican Party.
The future of the Democratic Party is diverse, progressive, and educated. They argue ideas. The future of the Republican Party is full of Nazis, Klansmen, and Q where they argue conspiracy theories.
Here’s a tip: When you’re on the same side as Nazis, Klansmen, and fucknut conspiracy theorists who believe in deep state cannibalistic, Satan-worshipping lizard people, you’re on the wrong side.
