Pro-Trump conspiracy theorists who subscribe to the bizarre QAnon cult which preaches that world governments are controlled by a Satanic cabal of pedophiles are planning to hold a convention over the Memorial Day weekend in Texas, according to Newsweek:
“Trump attorney Lin Wood has been confirmed to appear at an event in Dallas alongside other prominent QAnon figures and two Texas Republicans.
“Wood is scheduled to be a keynote speaker at the three-day For God & Country Patriot Roundup event over Memorial Day Weekend in May, along with Trump’s former campaign lawyer and fellow QAnon supporter Sidney Powell as well as former national security adviser Michael Flynn, one of the key figures in the radical movement.
Others speakers also include Rep. Louie Gohmert and Texas GOP chairman Allen West.”
Even though the gathering features those who have actively pushed and supported the wild QAnon view of the world, organizers claim it won’t actually be a convention even though it features speakers who are known to be involved with spreading QAnon lies.
Wood, you may recall, has been associated with some controversial issues and clients over the years. Most recently he defended Nicholas Sandmann, the Covington Catholic High School student who sued CNN and the Washington Post after he confronted a Native American activist near the Lincoln Memorial in January of 2019.
More recently, Wood has been actively spreading misinformation about the 2020 election, Newsweek notes:
“Wood also pushed other conspiracy theories such as falsely linking Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. He also faced calls to be investigated for suggesting former Vice President Mike Pence should face ‘execution by firing squad‘ for treason for failing to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory.”
Tickets for the event are going for $500 a person, $1,000 for VIP tickets.
Not everyone is glad to see the QAnon folks in Dallas:
“A Change.org petition has been set up urging the City of Dallas to cancel the event organized by supporters of a movement the FBI lists as a domestic terrorist threat, which has attracted more than 2,600 signatures as of Tuesday morning.”
