Projection seems to be a rightwing value these days, but every once in a while, an example of this rises above the rest.

For the uninitiated, the Qanon mind-worm is based in part on a supposed need to protect children from sexual predation. Pizzagate was just one instance where high-level Democrat politicians and movie stars were accused of running a child pornography ring in the non-existent basement of a pizzeria restaurant.

QAnon-supporting GOP candidate arrested for child pornography​

The failed congressional candidate made numerous references to the far-right conspiracy.​

A failed congressional candidate who gave support to the QAnon conspiracy theory was arrested in Louisiana this week for child pornography.

An active Airman at Barksdale Air Force Base, Gibson was taken into custody after a multi-agency investigation involving both the state of Louisiana, the Air Force, and two local sheriff's offices.

Gibson had ran for the U.S. House District 4 Congressional seat in November but was defeated in a landslide by incumbent Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA.).
As reported by WGNO, a spokesperson with the Barksdale Air Force Base stated that it intended to aid law enforcement in its investigation of Gibson.

“We hold our airmen to the highest standards and will be working with the Attorney General’s office and the Office of Special Investigation and local law enforcement during this investigation,” the spokesperson said.

Gibson had repeatedly made references to QAnon on Facebook, using hashtags popular with the movement on both his personal and campaign accounts.

Obviously you haven’t researched the q post yourself. I bet you have only read about it in the “news.”

If you had done your research before posting, you would know this is not a partisan issue.
I did my research, and yes, it's a partisan issue.

It's as much a partisan issue as 99% of the news stories posted here: someone belonging to a political party the author doesn't like does something stupid, therefore, the part is stupid.

You don't like an entire demographic being smeared by the actions of a few people? Stop doing it yourself.

Have you? So, how do you explain all the traitorous Republican corruption exposed by q... as being partisan against democrats?

You don’t know what you’re talking about.

Go change the subject in a different thread; this one's about right-wing projection.
If you had a clue... you wouldn’t be implying q was part of a right wing conspiracy. You would understand q is the one exposing these sickos.

Do not state/insinuate that another poster is not honest
If you had a clue...
EDIT 12

Why is it that Republicans and conservatives are almost always found guilty of the stuff they accuse Democrats of? It's almost like every accusation is an indication that they've already done something wrong...

Accuse a Democrat of corruption, and it's sure the conservative accuser is corrupt. Accuse democrats of trying to steal the election, and the Republicans have already tried to steal it. Accuse a Democrat of child pornography, and a conservative Republican qnut is arrested for that.

They’re both equally guilty. You see?

Both sides do this!!! BOTH!

I believe both democrats and republicans are corrupt and both have been stealing elections for quite some time now.

Great way to discredit a movement that is unifying people, isn’t it??? The q movement is exposing both republican and Democrat and a whole lot of other sickos!!! Pay attention!!!
Is projection a thing with you guys?
Look, it’s not me you’re angry with. These people, they run their little games trying to keep us divided and fighting with each other.

Honestly, I don't know why we give either party any credibility at this point. They are pretty much ALL compromised. As well as the media and everything else.

We, the People, need to unite. We need to quit playing their game. That’s what Trump is about. That’s what q is about.

I’m not your enemy.

Lol, okay???

I really don’t think you understand that I was agreeing with you. But, whateverman. Shrug
I really don't think leading with "the Democrats are corrupt" is anywhere close to either agreeing with me, or staying on topic.

Qanon is anti-fact nonsense. Idiocy is the enemy. Qanon is division, not unification. It is bullsh*t and appeals only to those who lack the ability to think critically and use available tools to debunk nonsense.

There is no evidence of widespread election fraud.

I'm fed up with people who support qanon. There is no excuse for their idiocy. Their gullibility makes them easy to manipulate.

Absolutely right. Anyone who gloms onto Q is doing it for reasons other than the that it makes sense. Whether it's gullibility, or the need to feel more important, or something else entirely - all anyone needs to do to know it's nonsense is recognize that Q predicted ****** would win the election in a massive landslide.

First of all... it’s Q. Not Qanon.
There’s Q... and then there’s Anons.
And critical thinking is essential to even somewhat understanding what‘s going on.

This!

But considering the way the MAGA crowd worships ****** and the ground he walks on... it isn't all that surprising that they would fall for something like Qanon.
