RNC for the Modern QAnon Republican
Republican Nationalist Convention 2020 Website Launched:
“We've always stood for white wealth and power. We just couldn't say so out loud. But now? We're ok with it!”
Today, a new satirical website, RepublicanNationalistConvention.com, has launched to guide Americans to the growing influence of white nationalism and QAnon-believing Republican candidates dominating the Republican Party in 2020. The website was created and launched by Bend the Arc: Jewish Action, a leading progressive Jewish organization with expertise in tracking and confronting the GOP’s embrace of white nationalism and antisemitic conspiracy theories, including QAnon. “Building a Country Just for Us,” reads the landing page.
Our Platform: “Our mission is to maintain a white, Christian nation that keeps us wealthy and powerful. But until recently, it wasn’t cool to say that out loud.”
Meet the Republican Nationalists, with profiles of Republican leaders who carry the torch for white supremacists like Rep. Matt Gaetz, and QAnon-believing “future Republican stars” (who believe a cabal of cannibalistic pedophiles is controlling America) like Marjorie Taylor Greene
Filter attendees by their views and values, from “Compared Covid-19 Safety Measures to the Holocaust” to “Met with White Supremacists,” because “If you’ve done something that would normally keep you out of politics, you’re in good company here in the GOP.”
FAQAnon, with answers to common questions about the almost comically bizarre and seriously dangerous movement gaining prominence in the Republican party.
The website will be updated throughout the convention and a parody twitter handle (@RNC202Q) will provide ongoing coverage of highlights of conspiracy theories and dog whistles from each day’s RNC speeches and events.
“Candidates believing in a cabal of satanic pedophiles or posting from Hitler’s vacation home on Instagram might be peak 2020, and we have to find a way to laugh at it to get through it,” said Dove Kent, senior strategy officer at Bend the Arc: Jewish Action. “My ancestors fought Nazis; we know the Republican Party’s embrace of antisemitic conspiracy theory believers is no joke. By opening the door to white nationalists and QAnon conspiracists, the Republican Party is making its 2020 strategy clear: generate fear to divide Americans against each other based on our religion, our race, or how long we’ve been here. But we know it’s up to all of us to hold our country to its highest ideals and realize the promise of freedom, safety, and belonging for all of us, no exceptions.”
