Original Article

Columbia, S.C.—U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, who is running for reelection in November, characterized the conspiracy theory group QAnon as “batshit crazy,” as some Republican congressional candidates support the group. Graham made the comments in an interview with Vanity Fair contributor Peter Hamby for his Snapchat show Good Luck America. The interview touched upon how to stop groups from spreading unfounded conspiracy theories online. “Well, QAnon is batshit crazy. Crazy stuff. Inspiring people to violence,“ Graham said. “I think it is a platform that plays off people’s fears, that compels them to do things they normally wouldn’t do. And it’s very much a threat.

Comments:

Can this clown not be primaried? I'd vote third party and let the chips fall where they may.

I am not particularly impressed with Q stuff....but this is unnecessary. Perhaps he has something to hide.

What is this QAnon? I've seen this in several articles, but each article is written as if everyone knows what this is.

Oh, yes, by all means. Find something to split the republican support. PLEASE, yet again get into a useless pissing contest and let the democrats use it to their advantage - as always. GOP republicans, including Graham, do everything they can to screw up the electorate.

#2, it's complicated. Many folks pay attention to online posts by someone calling him/her-self "Q". All sorts of very cryptic predictions and stories about how lots of the power players in the world are in a big pedophile ring, among other illegal, corrupt stuff, completely aside from their globalist political schemes. A bit too "inside baseball" for me, but I don't discount the possibility that it is all true. Not a fan of "Q", but not against it much, either.

Q is part crazy... part possible... part conspiracy... another part crazy but harmless. Some of their stuff is interesting and in this day and age with all of the other insanity that we're living through... are probably more accurate than I want to believe. Nobody is forced to follow them.

I don’t doubt Miss Lyndsay wants to portray Q as crazy. If rumors are true, he is part of the Deep State, and on Q’s radar.

OP, thinking conservatives have been asking that question for Lindsey’s last two reelection cycles. I am sorry but we neglected to get these worms out of there when times were good. I always knew keeping so many barely Republican Republican Senators in there would really do damage one day. Sure enough, now we have a can do Republican POTUS and these jerks have never really helped him when it counted. SC voters, we beg you. Kick this this creepy little Deep State-protecting traitor out of the Senate.

Not a fan of Q but maybe it's slightly useful, like if someone dropped articles from the National Enquirer with stuff from the MSM, mixed it all up , and wanted the reader to do the analysis for him/her. It's a lazy way to approach turning info into intel, if at all, and I would think the real white hats in the intel community would do a much better job.

#4 No it's not complicated. No one knows who Q is. Q is not a single person. It's a group of people. Military with Q clearance. Maybe made up with both men and women. Q does posts. About 4700 since 2017. I've read all of the posts and many of them several times. Q has never posted anything violent. The movement goes, that the military asked Trump to run. They said they had a plan to go after the bad people on the planet. Trump call it the Swamp. The Swamp isn't just in the US. It's global. And Trump is taking it down. China, North Korea, Iran are all crumbling. Trumps finding peace in the Middle East. Britain went through their Brexit. And we're finding more and more countries following Trumps, America. Now some posts are signed Q+. This IS Trump. Now how do we know Q and Trump are working together? Easy. There have been dozen and dozen posts by Q at the SAME minute as Trump is tweeting. Both saying identical things. As Q would say. What are the odds? The Deep State wants to put doubt in your mind about Q. Why? Maybe there's more truth to it than what meets the eye. Most of what you hear about Q is (just like the press) FAKE news. So what else is new. People should not talk about what they think Q is unless you/they are reading the post. See for yourself. https://qmap.pub/ But don't take my word. Research it yourself. The best YouTube channel is, Truth and Art TV The guy seems a little crazy but he has been talking about the truth for the years I've been watching. He's the closest to getting who/what Q is.

The second you start addressing the any subject raised by the Left, Lindsey, you have given up important ground to the anti-American Left by letting them frame the issue. You could respond with a complete, fact-based refutation of everything they just said, and you would have accomplished nothing. They would just move on to the next propaganda point. Duh!!!!! The correct answer is -- who the he11 is Q-anon that all the Left is talking about, and why are the Left always talking about him/her/it? Not a subject I have ever heard brought up in my caucus. Better answer: is he one of those Leftist terrorists that was speaking at the DNC convention? If so, I don't know him cause I didn't watch.

For me it isn't complicated. Q are patriots who I trust. Graham not so much. He looks to see which way the crowd is going, then runs out to the front and pretends he is leading. I have to wonder if he has been to Epstein Island. Thats Q's biggest issue and what gets him attacked the most. Did Epstein have boys too?

Well, if Q has Miss Lindsey's panties all twisted, I may have to rethink his veracity. I'm not a "treasure hunt" person. I've lost every game of "Clue" ever played, but everybody learns in a different way. I'm a reader, others need activity. Perhaps Q is just another way of educating the electorate.

Thanks ever so much #11, for the best explanation of the Q situation I have ever read. We know Miss Lindsey denigrates devoted conservatives when he would never do that to his DS pals or Democrat leaders. If Miss Lindsey hates something, its worth looking into and I will.

Thanks #11; Q definitely has a military background. A best guess is that it is a Naval background based on the verbiage, jargon and acronyms he uses. He does provide information but sometimes also misinformation since he knows that the enemy reads his drops. However he wants us to do our own research rather than to take his word. His mission is to awaken (as opposed to the "woke") as many people as possible so we understand what the global elite has been doing in our name for decades. Another of his goals is to unite us; the other side wants us to be divided since a divided country is weak. His following is worldwide right now. He is definitely a Believer ending some of his posts with GOD WINS and sometimes Ephesians 6:10-17. If he was a nothingburger the media would not be putting out so many articles calling him a conspiracy theory or a LARP. I follow him from time to time mostly through Praying Medic on YouTube. His channel seems to me to be the most reasonable of those who decode Q. He is more measured on his analysis than some others I've checked out. Q definitely does not advocate violence but the media wants everyone to believe he does and that he is dangerous.

Graham must be scared of losing to democrat Jaime who grew up with nothing and deserves a senate seat since his grandparents didn't have much and all. That's all you hear about him. It's pretty close to annoying; just like Graham is annoying. SC can do better, but we have an invasion going on, and we might be just like NC in another four years.

I’ve learned more about Q on this thread than I ever knew before beyond the name. But, it seems to me if he was trying to dismiss Q and dispel curiosity, Sen. Graham’s over the top, profane reaction did exactly the opposite. People who had no idea or little curiosity about Q, now have heard and been made curious as to why such a reaction from the senator, which leads to doing some research to see for themselves. Many people are way past believing something or someone is bad simply because a government official, or news reporter implies it or says so. We’ve seen and have documented evidence of quite a leftist conspiracy theory/hoax/coup to take down this president by some pretty crazy people in our government and throughout the country and world over the past four years. Let’s see some support for the POTUS, and genuine help from you and your fellow Republicans to get to the bottom of that conspiracy. If you do your job as it should be done, curiosity about other sources of information on the reasons why you haven’t done so go away.

Graham has a LOT to hide, so any hint of whistle blowing or evidence from some place other than the Deep State, is perceived by him to be a threat. So he bashes away. A lot of people said Clinton was innocent and that the 'tabloid' press was making stuff up, then the stained dress was revealed. Considering the proud, public statements made by rats like Schumer about illegals, including MS-13 who he dismissed as not a threat, I do believe the money laundering of taxpayer money using Ukrainian thugs, rats, are capable of anything. I mean ANYTHING.

Folks who discount conspiracies as crazy talk just don't know how the world works. Most everything in the world of politics, money and sex are conspiracies, with people working together in their own interests, and usually with a lot to hide from the world of normal experience. The world is not all rainbows, flowers and lollipops as the MSM likes to portray it. and No, we are Not "All in This Together." and the MSM does NOT tell us "What You Need to Know."

A Q clearance is a Dept. Of Energy granted clearance. It has to do with nuke related stuff. I’ve had one and it’s not exclusive to the military, it’s tough to get. To say these are military with a Q clearance would not reflect the low numbers of military with this clearance. The military has other clearance designations for this.

Left-wing groups in Oregon demanded Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler resign after the death of a right-wing protester over the weekend, saying Mr. Wheeler has allowed the city to spiral out of control.

Declaring President Donald Trump a “toxic presence,” Joe Biden forcefully condemned the violence at recent protests while also blaming Trump for fomenting the divide that’s sparking it. “He doesn’t want to shed light, he wants to generate heat, and he’s stoking violence in our cities,” Biden said Monday. “He can’t stop the violence because for years he’s fomented it.” In one of his sharpest attacks on the president yet, Biden went on to call Trump a “toxic presence in this nation for four years” and accuse him of “poisoning the values this nation has always held dear, poisoning our very democracy.”

Columbia University has removed the name of the founder of its medical school, who also served as George Washington’s doctor, from a campus dormitory because he was a slave owner. Samuel Bard, the founder of what is now Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, was a pioneer in obstetrics and the treatment of diphtheria, but also owned several slaves and once advertised promising a reward for the return of one who had run away. Bard Hall, which opened in 1931, is a dormitory for clinical students. In a letter to students and faculty, Columbia President Lee Bollinger said that the change “feels urgent”.

A federal appeals court ruled Monday against Michael Flynn and the Justice Department in their request to quickly shut down his criminal case. The 8-2 decision restores power to a judge to question the Justice Department's moves in the politically divisive case, when Attorney General William Barr dropped charges against President Donald Trump's former national security adviser earlier this year despite twice pleading guilty to lying under oath to lying to the FBI. Flynn had fought District Judge Emmet Sullivan's decision to ask a third-party lawyer to argue against the Justice Department's dismissal in the case, and his plans to hold a hearing, which has not yet happened.
