My thoughts on why impeachment is necessary

GOP colleagues have stated that impeachment is divisive and could cause further violence. I disagree. Allowing President Trump to walk away, validates messianic conspiracy theories and disinformation. It could me more dangerous. Thread
QAnon adherents and those who believe “Stop the Steal” conspiracies view this as a vanguard movement of apocalyptic and revolutionary ideology. QAnon is “syncretic” now including fantasies pushed by Flynn, Powell etc— that deep state evil doers are afraid of evidence against them
A significant part of this conspiracy envisions an all-at-once insurrection (signified by the code: WWG1WGA:” where we go one we go all”) against pedophilic and satanic lawmakers. President Trump, in this fantasy, stands as the man ordained to stop them.
If there is no accountability for POTUS & allies pushing radical conspiracies, those who believe Trump is the ordained protector will believe the conspiracies true, that he had so much evidence against evil-doers they would not convict him. Future violence could be encouraged
Impeaching President Trump for his grotesque use of power and language to incite riots, based on coordinated disinformation, will aid in dousing the fire of conspiracy grifters and to show QAnon believers that WWG1WGA was a horrific lie. Impeachment destroys the mirage.
Lastly, responsibility of leadership is to identify the facts and act in good faith, even when hard. Jan 6th proved that disinformation could destroy our Republic. White Nationalists were there! Our adversaries know that also. Let’s stop disinfo from inside & outside. Impeach

#Obamagate was started by trolls.

Data is the only way to refute idiocies like Obamagate. Our @ncri_io report details how trolls start & spread conspiracy theories through “coordinated inauthentic behavior”, using Obamagate as a primary example.…
Starting with #QAnon networks and worming its way to the White House twitter feed, #Obamagate sells nutjobs the idea that Obama (and a pedophile deepstate) controlled US Intelligence to try and jail President Trump so they could drink the blood of children and gain eternal life
Part of how #QAnon works is to create an interconnected mythology with more populist versions on the surface - Obama tried to get the FBI to spy on the Trump campaign - with craziness getting heavier the deeper you go: they were satanic deepstate pedophiles for instance...
