Loser Republican Obsesses Over Condemning QAnon While Democrats are Free to Peddle the Russiagate Hoax and Let Radical Leftist Groups Roam the Streets

Several Congressmen are going to war with the QAnon conspiracy theory.

On August 25, 2020, Republican Congressman Denver Riggleman and Democrat Congressman Tom Malinowski introduce a resolution to condemn the conspiracy movement and demand that law enforcement crack down on criminal activity that its supporters carry out.

Riggleman tweeted “QAnon and the conspiracy theories it promotes are a danger and a threat that has no place in our country’s politics. I condemn this movement and urge all Americans to join me in taking this step to exclude them and other extreme conspiracy theories from the national discourse. https://twitter.com/Malinowski/status/1298270725795508228.”

The resolution describes QAnon as one of the “fringe political conspiracy theories” that authorities believe is likely to incite violence.

With several Republican candidates who have allegedly supported QAnon in the past now potentially making their way to Congress, establishment gatekeepers in both parties are becoming jittery.

Whether or not such conspiracies have validity is for curious Americans to decide through their own investigation.

The real question we should be asking is why a Republican like Riggleman is wasting his time trying to introduce a resolution with a Democrat?

After all, this is a time when there’s an existential threat of radical leftists tearing up the streets across the nation. This merits a full-fledged response from the GOP. Focusing on anything else is a complete waste of time and political capital.

Riggleman’s inability to get Democrats to condemn radical leftist groups such as Antifa or Black Lives Matter, let alone make apologies for spreading the Russiagate hoax —one of the most toxic conspiracies that has ripped the country apart — is one of the many reasons he got the boot during the primary for Virginia’s 5th congressional district.

Now, he’s likely going to be replaced by Bob Good, a true America First conservative that likely won’t turn to silly virtue signaling to appease journalists and party leadership.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
