I'm sorry, but this is just plain crazy.

Trump's First Amendment rights need to be taken away from him.

President Donald Trump retweeted a video message with a hashtag referencing a pro-Trump conspiracy theory, known as "QAnon."

The tweet, from the anonymous account @Rad123, included a video of a woman praising Trump's approach to urban poverty and included the hashtag #WWG1WGA, which stands for the QAnon slogan, "Where we go one, we go all." The video originated from another pro-Trump account, @Emmy.

The QAnon theory centers around an anonymous online individual known as "Q," who claims to be a government official with information about a covert plot to overthrow Trump. Followers of the conspiracy believe that, among other things, the world is run by a satanic cabal of elites and pedophiles led by Hillary Clinton and the "deep state," who Trump — with help from secret allies including special counsel Robert Mueller — will eventually expose and defeat.

Earlier this year, the FBI designated QAnon a possible domestic terrorism threat. A handful of right-wing, pro-Trump celebrities, including actress Roseanne Barr and former professional baseball player Curt Schilling, have expressed support for the conspiracy and its followers.

"Q" has attributed the "Where we go one, we go all" slogan to President John F. Kennedy, but it seems to have been taken from the 1996 movie "White Squall," The Daily Beast reported.

Trump has previously promoted dozens of QAnon conspiracy accounts and followers. According to a New York Times investigation published in November, Trump has retweeted at least 145 unverified accounts that have promoted conspiracy theories. Over two dozen of these accounts were later suspended by Twitter for violating the platform's rules.

The Times found that QAnon promoters frequently make their way into the president's Twitter feed via his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, and the right-wing pundit Eric Bolling. And more than 20,000 of Trump's Twitter followers have QAnon slogans or references in their profiles.

In July, the Trump campaign released a video ad that featured multiple Trump fans with QAnon signs. And QAnon followers have showed up to Trump's campaign rallies holding signs showing their support for both the president and the conspiracy.

lol. these groups such as qanon and wikileaks? it really just depends on who they are going after as to what people's

opinions are of them. i can remember liberals LOVING wikileaks and other hacker groups when they were going after

george bush. saying they were the TRUE journalists. believed in everything they said. but now? now the idiot libs call 

these exact same groups "russian ops" and "conspiracy theorists" simply because what they are putting out now doesn't

fit with what they believe.

It was designed so that the president could spew certifiable nonsense without consequences

To protect controversial, unwelcome speech. Good, widely-believed speech doesn't need formal protection.

Trump*, the last defense of free speech

 

It doesn't mean you celebrate controversial speech and people who speak about controversial things are automatically good. 
But in my book, people who call for the infringement of other people's rights are automatically bad.

Demagoguery is wrong. And dangerous
