New RGA Ad Puts QAnon Coalition’s Conspiracy Theories Front and Center
The RGA is putting the MAGA extremism of their far-right slate of candidates front and center in a new TV ad in Arizona featuring a QAnon-linked conspiracy theorist.
The woman in the ad, Traci Hansen, attended a march on the Arizona Capitol organized by a QAnon and Big Lie conspiracy theorist who also organized Stop the Steal events. Hansen has also spread baseless COVID lies online, raised money for a QAnon-supporting organization under criminal investigation, and embraced violent anti-government rhetoric.
This week, Lake added to her track record of campaigning with Nazi sympathizers and QAnon activists by endorsing a homophobic and antisemitic candidate who’s called being gay “disgusting” and said, “The Jews, Illuminati, Covid shots kill,” among other hateful comments.
Just weeks ago, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who co-chairs the RGA, was attacking “Fake Lake” on national TV. But now, Ducey and the RGA proudly promote Lake and her Q-Anon-linked backers.
“Since their A-team of candidates bombed in the primaries, the RGA is stuck with the Q-team and their wildly out-of-touch beliefs,” said DGA Communications Director David Turner. “This ad shows the RGA is fully embracing their far-right candidates’ dangerous QAnon conspiracy theories.”
