A few days ago I blogged about an upcoming rally in Beaver, PA:
Arise USA! Rally in Beaver County is a QAnon event, plain and simple. Wendy Bell should feel right at home.
And in doing so I am afraid I have embarrassed Scott Tady (the Beaver County Times reporter
who covered it) when I pointed out that I completely missed the QAnon angle. Oh darling. Oh darling. My mistake. I feel horrible about this. Just horrible.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure Scott is a good guy, one who is usually good at what he does, etc. Who knows? It might be great tomorrow, but I had no hope of pointing out the QAnon stuff.
Back to the rally.
There is a lot to unpack, as they say. We already know that the organizer is a guy named Robert David Steele and we already know that he is a QAnon Pizzagate fan / a true 9/11 fan. Is there anything else to know about Mr. Steele?
On Thursday (June 29), a guest on Alex Jones’ radio show named Robert David Steele claimed that
it is inhabited – by people sent to the Red Planet against their will.
“In fact, we believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20-year journey, so once they get to Mars, they have no choice but to be slaves in the colony. from Mars. “Steele told Jones, founder of the controversial InfoWars website.
And, according to the Washington Post, the children of Earth enslaved on Mars are actually part of the Pizzagate story:
On Thursday’s Infowars broadcast, Steele appeared to connect abducted children who were held captive on Mars with pedophile rings that allegedly use children for the body parts and energy of their youth.
“Pedophilia is not limited to sodomizing children,” Steele said. “He goes straight to terrorize them to adrenaline their blood and then murder them. It also includes murdering them so they can extract their bone marrow and body parts. ”
“This is the original growth hormone,” Jones said.
“Yeah, it’s an anti-aging thing,” Steele replied.
This is the guy who organizes Arise USA! travel.
Steele and the other speakers on the tour, which include a variety of mini fringe celebrities from the MAGA world, as well as local pro-Trump figures, are using the tour to reinforce the idea that government should not be trusted and that citizens common people (the 99%, as Steele calls them) need to stand up and take action to regain control.
Fundamental to this is the Constitutional Association of Sheriffs and Peace Officers (CSPOA), a group led by the militia figure Richard Mack, who wants to reintroduce Posse Comitatus, a violent far-right movement that emerged in the 1970s and 1970s. 1980 and whose ideas underpinned the militia movements and common law courts of the 1990s.
And the Constitutional Association of Marshals and Peace Officers. What’s that?
The New Yorker:
CSPOA members believe the sheriff has the final say on the constitutionality of a law in their county. Each law enforcement officer has some leeway in choosing which laws to enforce, so it is rare to be fined for reckless crossing, for example. But, under this philosophy, the supremacy clause of the Constitution, which dictates that federal law takes precedence over state law, is irrelevant. Also the Supreme Court. “They get up every morning and put their clothes on the same way you and me do,” Finch told me. “Why do those nine people decide what the rest of the country will be like?” For the most dogmatic, there is only one way to interpret the country’s founding documents: in favor of arms, against immigrants, against regulation, against Washington.
Yes, this is very different from how it was first reported (where “speakers will address unity and change”), don’t you think?
What about some of the other speakers?
Covid-19 denier. And you remember the last time the broken egg appeared on the virtual pages of this blog, right?
The good folks from the Crack’d Egg were across the state
applause the coronavirus. They animated the virus that has killed tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians. Watch the video: They. Animated.
some medical theme. Given the context, I assume you will be talking about the coronavirus or the vaccine. Or both.
This will not be a simple manifestation of “unity”. This will be an event against the government, against vaccines and contaminated by QAnon. All who join him will be linked to the rampant ignorance on display.
Children of Earth enslaved on Mars? Really, Robert?
And like I said before, Wendy Bell should be a perfect fit.
