Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 28, 2020

Republican Senate candidate Jo Rae Perkins from Oregon shared a video Saturday morning where she recited the American oath of office in a meme connected to the QAnon conspiracy theory. In the video, which appears to be recorded on Perkins' back porch, she introduces herself and takes the oath of office. Perkins has not been elected to the Senate. "I am honored and blessed to be the U.S. Senate nominee in Oregon on the Republican ticket for 2020. I am also one of the thousands of digital soldiers. Today, June 25, I am taking the oath of office. Protocols call for you to put your left hand upon a Bible. I have here the American Patriot's Bible. It also say to raise your right hand," Perkins said before reading the oath.

In May, Perkins, a financial adviser, shared a video on Twitter, where she held up a sticker with an abbreviated version of the QAnon slogan "Where we go one, we go all," "WWG1WGA," which also also become a popular hashtag among supporters.

"I stand with President Trump, I stand with Q and the team," she said. "Thank you anons, thank you patriots, and together we can save our republic."

The following day, her communications team released a statement distancing Perkins from the conspiracy theory, which alleged that the "biased press" took the video out of context. However, the day after the statement, Perkins denied the statement, posting that she was "literally in tears" when she saw it.

"My campaign is gonna kill me. How do I say this? Some people think that I follow Q like I follow Jesus. Q is the information and I stand with the information resource," she said at the time.

Horrible. Searched around the net for a minute and can't find any Oregon Senate polls, possibly it is too early in the race.

I've figured out this is like the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Look at how dead her eyes look.

There's no wheels turning in that empty head of hers.
