Gracie seems to be bragging about.

Recently, apart from simple racism, I've accepted that quasi-fascist conspiracy theories explain Trumpists.

Trump is waiting for the precise moment to strike.

This is today's Trumpublican party.

Ahahahaha .... hahahaha ...

GOPhers are nuts and proud of it. So much crazy to squeeze into one party.

Q victory in 5 steps:

1. The Republican Party had been going down a dark path for a number of years already, producing such empty, mean-spirited vessels as the "Contract on America" and "Tea Party."
2. The increasing influence of social media and right-wing media enhance this trajectory. Scapegoating and cruelty become a national pastime.
3. Trump capitalizes on it and proudly rides this nuttery into the White House, and of course he's on Twitter all day every day (see No. 2).
4. Under the stress of Covid and the economic turmoil associated with it, poorly informed people search for answers.
5. Racists, grifters, conspiracy kooks and outright terrorists swoop in, act tough, win converts.

QAnon follower wins GOP primary in Oregon, wow!

A extremely liberal occupied state and a goofball fringe believer from the right wins. It clearly shows the state of the democrats if this can happen.

"It clearly shows the state of the democrats if this can happen."

You misspelled Republicans.

And that's the most charitable interpretation of your idiotic words.

Are you too stupid to know the difference between an election and a primary?

Yes, we're all absolutely shocked that a Republican could win a Republican primary.

I guess no sane Republican wants to run down ticket of Donald Trump.

Great job Republicans the next election cycle in the state of Oregon Democrats will be combating Libertarians and green party candidates but not a Republican.

Laughed my a** off on that one!

Poor Crassus.
Quite the poster child for the typical Trump voter.

Oregon is about 45% Republican. And you're 100% moron.

Unwad your panties ladies, don't let an honest mistake shake you. It's frightening enough we have qanon as a meme let alone running for offices every place. I find their agenda is akin to White nationalism, probably stemming from the same #Chan source.

What exactly does "liberal occupied" mean?

And this is a reflection of your party and your party only, crassus.

Another gem from the sundowning diaper sniper.

"And I tested very positively in another sense. So this morning. I tested positively toward negative, right? So no, I tested perfectly this morning. Meaning I tested negative. But that's a way of saying it. Positively toward the negative."

President Trump

Wow. Just wow.

What Crassus is trying to explain to us, which is correct, is that Oregon Republicans voted for this clown, why, exactly?

To troll the libs.

Perkins is now trying to back away from her crazy conspiracy theory.

"I was not endorsing Q/Anon, but rather stating that I appreciate the fact that there is still free speech in this country that allows for voices - including whistleblowers from both sides of the aisle - that may, or may not, bring to light issues Americans need to be aware of."

Darn media! Where did they get the idea that "I stand with 'Q'" means she supports Q?

Funny how these nuts have to disavow their own words when they realize how crazy they sound.

And the cons are wondering why everyone thinks they're crazy. Because they are.

You know who never figures that out? Yeah you do.

I refuse to call this conspiracy theory anything except "Pizzagate." The morons who gave us that are the same morons who now call themselves Q'anon. America is turning into Conspiracy Theory Wonderland.
