Angela Stanton-King, a Republican candidate for Congress, says God sent her to advocate for Q Anon. She initially denied supporting the Q Anon conspiracy, but on Tuesday she pulled off the mask and admitted to it, referring to the “is a major cover up for PEDOPHILIA and HUMAN TRAFFICKING.” And apparently God backs the whole thing.
“God sent me,” Angela Stanton-King, the Republican candidate in Georgia’s 5th Congressional District, claimed in a tweet Wednesday night. Stanton–King is among the congressional candidates identified by Media Matters and news outlets as having promoted QAnon-related conspiracy theories.
At the beginning of July, Stanton–King denied being a QAnon believer, telling the Associated Press that linking to a QAnon video was about “questioning the movement” and that using QAnon hashtags was an effort to extend her social media reach. But since then, she has published a number of tweets that appear to support QAnon. On July 11, she tweeted, “How many of you think this is still about Trump being a racist and not the Globbal elite pedophiles trafficking children…THE GLOVES ARE OFF!!!” On Thursday morning, she tweeted what she described as a “truth bomb”: “This isn’t about COVID 19 or BLACK LIVES MATTER. This is a major cover up for PEDOPHILIA and HUMAN TRAFFICKING.”…
Unopposed for the Republican nomination, Stanton-King received financial support from the state and national GOP. The New York Times noted this week that the Republican National Committee gave her $2,200 and the Georgia Republican Party gave her $2,800.
Of course they did.
