QAnon Fundraiser Hosts Get Dumped by Pence

Vice President Mike Pence was to attend a fundraiser for President Trump in Bozeman, MT, but on Saturday dropped the plans. Perhaps he thought attendance would not be a good look for the campaign, especially since the hosts subscribe to the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Officially the Trump re-election campaign gave no indication that QAnon scared off the Veep. It merely told the Associated Press that Pence’s schedule had changed. But the cancellation came days after the AP also reported that the Bozeman fundraiser hosts, Caryn and Michael Borland, have shared QAnon memes and retweeted its posts. Michael Borland, for example, has featured the “Q” logo on his Facebook page, while wife Caryn has retweeted QAnon Twitter accounts.

Perhaps you’re just as puzzled about this conspiracy theory as me. But like so many other tall tales, it came from the bowels of the internet — on 4chan, to be exact. In 2017 an anonymous poster called “Q Clearance Patriot” predicted that President Trump would unmask a globalist cabal in an event called “The Storm.” And how does Q know this? He claims to be an intelligence officer of high rank with access to Super Secret Squirrel information.

According to Q, the cabal includes Satan-worshipping pedophiles who run a global child sex-trafficking ring and who also are plotting against Trump — in their spare time, one presumes. This group includes Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks, and, of course, George Soros. Even Pope Francis and the Dalai Lama are part of the clique. If that’s not enough, Q claims that the group participates in cannibalism, too. “Outlandish” doesn’t begin to describe this.

How many people adhere to QAnon? No one seems to know, since it’s an internet phenomenon. Unfortunately these groups also detract from the problem of real child sex trafficking. Plus, groups that fight against child sex rings also have to deal with QAnon misinformation from people who contact them.

But if you ask the media, QAnon followers are everywhere. And they will destroy the country.

For example, Ali Velshi at MSNBC reported that QAnon has infiltrated the White House! And the Republicans won’t do a thing about it. Plus, if you know any Trump supporters you most likely know some QAnon kooks, he insists.

Speaking for myself, I know a lot of Republicans, both in person and online. But I have yet to find anyone who promotes QAnon. Yes, I know that’s anecdotal, and your results, as they say, may vary. But as for the charge that the GOP is ignoring the conspiracy theory — that’s inaccurate. Rep. Adam Kinzinger has called upon the Republican Party to condemn it. Sen. Ben Sasse also called it “nuts,” Rep. Liz Cheney labeled it a “dangerous lunacy,” and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said there is “no place” in the GOP “for QAnon.” Finally, Sen. Lindsey Graham called it “batshit crazy.”

As for VP Mike Pence — he also described QAnon as a conspiracy theory, telling CBS:

“I don’t know anything about QAnon, and I dismiss it out of hand.”

The media also want you to know that the FBI calls QAnon a “potential domestic terrorist threat,” according to PolitiFact. (Notice the word “potential.”) PolitiFact also cites “multiple instances where QAnon beliefs were connected to real-world crime.” It listed such incidents as drivers who led police on high-speed car chases, a man who blocked traffic with his vehicle, and a woman who drove onto a pier in New York City with a car full of knives. There was also the Seattle man who killed his brother with a sword, and a New York man who killed a member of the Gambino crime family. All these people supported QAnon, but correlation is not necessarily causation.

Now just imagine if all those perpetrators were Muslim terrorists — the media would be telling you they’re merely “lone wolves.” Nothing to worry about.

I also find it interesting that while the media want to pin QAnon on Republicans, calling it a “domestic terrorist threat,” they gloss over the elephant in their own room: the extreme violence on the Left.

Like the BLM and Antifa rioters who have terrorized and destroyed parts of cities, like Portland. Rioters have been tearing that city up for over 100 days now.

Or the gunman in Los Angeles who sauntered up to a parked police car on Saturday night and opened fire. I’d be willing to bet that the gunman doesn’t adhere to QAnon.

What did Jesus say in Matthew: You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. The liberals in the media are hypocrites of the first order.

Vice President Mike Pence made the right move in cancelling his appearance at that Montana fundraiser. He should not be associating himself or the Trump campaign with a fringe conspiracy theory, which I also find to be nuttier than squirrel poop. Now, if only President Trump and members of his campaign would stop flirting with QAnon followers on Twitter, perhaps this nonsense would end.

  • The one early promoter of Qanon I know of, I also have very strong reason to suspect is also working for the St Petersburg Troll Factory. Your own Marta Hernandez knows whom I’m referring to.

  • Quintella Q Quick says:

    I’ve been in contact with a couple Qanon supporters who were volunteers in county Repubican offices who answered phones. I called my county Repubican office, asking what they knew and thought about Qanon. Well, lo and behold, the woman I talked to turned out to be a Qanon adherent. She even gave me names to look up in order to try to convert me to Qanon. Out of curiosity, I called the Repubican office of a neighboring county and ended up talking with a volunteer who believed that Obama had planned to ship his political opponents away in railraod cars. She even believed that some railroad cars that Obama had planned to use had been found near her city. She explained these railroad cars had holes drilled in the bottom of the cars. When I asked why they’d have holes in the bottom, she replied it was so they could use straps to strap people’s feet so they would have to stand up. I sppose the thougth was they could ship more people in a railroad car if the were standing up. I eventually ended up talking to a man who had been head of another county Repubican Party but who quit because of the unhinged beliefs of some of their members. He said the first county Repubican office I talked to was known by the state Repubican party to be quite extreme and that the state Repubican party was displeased with this county office. He was very concerned about the conspriacy theory thinking and extremism that had infiltrated the Repubican Party, which is why he quit as head of his county Repubican Party.

    I know of two candidates who have voiced support for Qanon who are running for federal office, Marjorie Taylor Greene, who will certainly win the general election now that her Democratic opponent has dropped out, is running in Georgia for the U.S. House of Representatives. Taylor Greene posted a video on social media in which she questioned whether a plane had hit The Pentagon on 9-11. Green has probably deleted this video from her social media, but you can still find it on You Tube along with her idiotic meanderings about Qanon. The other candidate, the truly unhinged Jo Rae Perkins, is running for the U,S. Senate in Oregon, but has no chance of winning and is seen as a laughing stock by many voters. Cray cray Jo Rae has even posted herself reciting the Qanon pledge on social media. Again, this is the Repubican candidate for the U.S. SENATE in Oregon. Just what does this say about the state of the Repubican Party in Oregon that the best they can come up for their candidate for U.S. Senate is a wackadoodle who recites the Qanan pledge and is quite proud of her Qanon beliefs?

    I don’t know it this is realted to Qanon in any way, but a friend knows somebody who was claiming on Facebook that some of the fires in the western Unietd States were a hoax. Well, this person certainly changed her tune when people she knew had to evacuate their homes. I have a neighbor whose sister thinks that covid-19 is a hoax. I coud list other wacky beliefs that I’ve heard Trumpers I’ve known express, but I think this is sufficient.

    Despite Marjorie Tarlor Greene’s wacky statements and beliefs, Trump congratulated her on her primary victory and invited her to his shindig on the White House lawn. I think this goes beyound Trump “flirting with Qanon supporters on Twitter,” to Trump actively supporting them. Of course Trump knows that most Qanon supporters are also his supporters, so he’s not going to denounce Qanon.

    In fairness, I did again call the second county Repubican office where the woman who thought Obama had planned to ship off his opponents boxcars, and talked with a very nice and sane volunteer.who was in no way assoicated with Qanon. I have no plans to call my county Repubican office again after talking with their crazed Qanon volunteer and finding out out that the state Repubican party is displeased with this office. Maybe my viewpoint is skewed by my experiences, but I’ve come to think that conspriracy theory thinking is more common in the Repubican Party than I had previously thought.

    Kim is right about the violence on the left, but this doesn’t discount the prevalence of nutty conspriacy theories on the right. I was surprised that I recently ran into so much conspriracy theory thinking on the right recently. Maybe my viiewpoint is skewed by my experiences, but I’ve talked with other people who have had similar experiences.

    You can be sure that the Democartic Party is going to use Marjorie Taylor Greene as an example of the worst of the Repubican party once she is in office. Do you think Trump is going to denounce her? I would be very surpirsed if he does.

    Ummm, the pics in that tweet are NOT Portland. Not unless we’re now importing rioters from Sweden.

    I’m not so sure Qanon is a “nutty conspiracy theory” as it is an attempt to hook a bunch of people into believing there is a nutty conspiracy theory. I’ve seen information suggesting “Q” puts out lots of spoilers pointing to him being full of bovine excrement, but people on both sides refuse to disbelieve.
