It’s little wonder that many of the rioters and would-be putschists thought they were morally justified in their actions when they subscribe to insane conspiracies like Qanon:
When you believe that many in government is running a paedophile ring and Trump is the saviour against that it’s logical for adherents to do what they can to support him and stop the baddies.
This is a fantasy, but it is one which has been bolstered by Republicans and conservatives who should know better. From those who play along to those who choose to ignore it and say that the real issue is the liberals who call these people out there has been an allowance of credibility to these people.
I feel sad and sorry that so many have been swallowed up by a conspiracy theory and played by politicians who seize upon such idiocy for their own ends, but it’s wrong and we need to call it out. Dismissing concerns about the beliefs of too many as liberal elitism does nothing to solve the problem and allows the lack of challenge to belief which has helped this to happen.
