It’s really despicable that Matthew Rosenberg and Maggie Haberman would pick on Allen West like this. I think it’s fair to assume they hate him for the color of his skin. It’s always fair to assume that.
Late last month, as the Texas Republican Party was shifting into campaign mode, it unveiled a new slogan, lifting a rallying cry straight from a once-unthinkable source: the internet-driven conspiracy theory known as QAnon.
The new catchphrase, “We Are the Storm,” is an unsubtle cue to a group that the F.B.I. has labeled a potential domestic terrorist threat. It is instantly recognizable among QAnon adherents, signaling what they claim is a coming conflagration between President Trump and what they allege, falsely, is a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophile Democrats who seek to dominate America and the world.
This claim is mostly correct. It’s correct right up until the point they say it’s Democrats behind it. It’s more accurate to say it’s communists behind it, and in this case communist is a three letter word.
The slogan can be found all over social media posts by QAnon followers, and now, too, in emails from the Texas Republican Party and on the T-shirts, hats and sweatshirts that it sells. It has even worked its way into the party’s text message system — a recent email from the party urged readers to “Text STORM2020 [to 484848]” for updates.
You should definitely text STORM2020 to 484848 right now.
But anyways these rats, just like the incredibly fit and healthy Bud Kennedy, are whining like little babies that people are participating in democracy and coming up with theories and explanations they don’t like based on their own research.
This highlights one of the great contradictions of our time. The fact that so many of the elite claim to love democracy because the people get to decide on policies based on their own judgement, while also saying they need to censor right wingers endlessly because people might use their judgement to come to certain conclusions the elite disapprove of.
It’s quite a riddle.
“We once had Republican leaders that would work to keep extremists from the levers of power. Now they embrace them and their crazy and dangerous ideas,” said Rudy Oeftering, a Texas Republican who formerly chaired the Texas Association of Business and remains one of the state party’s precinct captains.
Another quote comes to mind here:
“We once had Republican leaders who weren’t little faggy bitches who would give quotes to the New York Times. Now it seems that’s all we have.”
Here at CR, we told you what the meaning of the phrase “we are the storm” was more than a week before the New York Times published their conspiracy theory.
These rats at the NYT and Star Telegram better hope conservatives don’t realize Q is controlled opposition that’s not giving them the whole truth. Because once people truly understand the depth and source of the conspiracy, their little game with our country is over.
