Gregory Stanton, a genocide expert, makes the case that QAnon, the conspiracy theory beloved of many Republicans, is a Nazi cult.
A secret cabal is taking over the world. They kidnap children, slaughter, and eat them to gain power from their blood. They control high positions in government, banks, international finance, the news media, and the church. They want to disarm the police. They promote homosexuality and pedophilia. They plan to mongrelize the white race so it will lose its essential power.
Does this conspiracy theory sound familiar? It is. The same narrative has been repackaged by QAnon.
Stanton points out that what QAnon has repackaged, is The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the most influential anti-Jewish pamphlet of all time, one promoted by Hitler and his collaborators.
You might think it’s unfair to say the whole Republican Party is in bed with QAnon, but you’d be wrong. Not only are Republicans running QAnon supporters on the ballot for Congress, but Iowa Republican Joni Ernst is repeating the QAnon conspiracy theory. We have to vote out all the Republicans; they no longer have a place in a democratic government.
Republican Senator Joni Ernst has called for an investigation into USA Gymnastics after the former team doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to life in prison for sexually abusing female athletes. She’s not wrong about USA Gymnastics, there should be an investigation.
But she’s been very selective about which sexual predators she thinks need to go to prison. For example, she had her chance to pull her support from Donald Trump when it became clear that he had bragged about sexually assaulting women, and she stuck by him. And when child molester Roy Moore was endorsed wholeheartedly by Donald Trump, Joni Ernst sat quietly next to Trump (photo of that moment, above) and didn’t object.
It’s almost as if she thinks it’s OK if you’re a Republican.
Joni Ernst embarrassing herself in Red Oak:
Republican senators Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley have been back home in Iowa to hold small town halls in rural areas, places they probably thought would be ‘safe spaces’ from angry voters. WRONG. The rural voters who turned out were not happy with Donald Trump and they unloaded on Ernst and Grassley. In one particularly embarrassing moment for Sen. Ernst in Red Oak, Iowa (population 5,476), she drew laughter and scorn after this exchange:
SEN. ERNST: “He is standing up for a lot of the countries, um… where we have seen…”
CONSTITUENT: “Name a few, could you name a few?”
SEN. ERNST: “Yeah, you bet. Norway…”
