    ‘There’s a lot of crazy going on’: Pro-Trump lawyer blows up key GOP race


    Lin Wood’s smash-mouth bid to become South Carolina party chair is rattling one of the Republican Party’s most important states.

    The outcome has out-sized implications because of South Carolina’s role in GOP presidential primaries — the state hosts the first primary in the South, and almost always votes for the eventual Republican nominee. It’s emblematic of broader divisions between longtime GOP members and those brought into the Republican fold by Donald Trump, who remains the party’s center of gravity.
    Trump has already endorsed McKissick, who went so far as to cancel the 2020 presidential primary in the state when the president ran for reelection. But in Wood’s telling, it was he who carried the true Trump mantle by fighting to overturn election results in Georgia while McKissick did too little to add his voice to the “Stop the Steal” movement.

    An adherent of the QAnon conspiracy theory, Wood contends Trump won the election in a landslide and is still president. Speaking without notes in a style that blends the skills of a preacher and an accomplished trial lawyer, Wood — who first gained fame as the attorney for the family of JonBenét Ramsey and also for Richard Jewell, who was wrongly accused of the Atlanta Olympics bombing — has built a candidacy around his support of Trump, whom Wood said he supported in 2016 because he thought chaos was good for the country.

    “We need some chaos in the Republican Party in South Carolina. Somebody needs to shake it up,” Wood said Tuesday in the city of Aiken to applause and laughter. “So here I am, Mr. Shaker.”

    A day earlier, Wood heckled McKissick during a speech at a Hampton County GOP event and suggested the incumbent doesn’t care about stopping pedophiles. The two then had a face-to-face confrontation where McKissick swiped at Wood for raising vague allegations about “Chinese pornography.” The chairman’s supporters inevitably describe Wood as deranged, pointing out that the Georgia Bar is investigating his conduct and wants Wood to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

      If there is anything that shows the depravity of the situation with Mr. Trump, it is that so many of his supporters are linked in the QAnon hoax and nutters. It is mass delusion, and DT is fine with it, since they see him as their 'savior'.

            Can you prove that it doesn't exist?

              BlueAnon is not only quite real, it has been far more destructive to our country and our democracy than the QAnon loons.

                  'Blueanon' is nothing more than another conservative attempt at gaslighting, where this time the target is legitimate concerns about QAnon. Don't even pretend it might be a real thing on any level.

                      Cannot prove the negative. It can be proved that QAnon is widely believed and endorsed by Republicans including QAnon conspiracies..

                        Can you document that Blueanon exists.

                          Never heard of it before today - I think this whole obsession with fringe groups is just downright nutty. There is SO MUCH more to be concerned about than something as "out there" as QAnon.

                            Conspiracy theories of QAnon are reflected in your support of QAnon conspiracies you support response without documentation. QAnon is documented including the conspiracies and publicly supported by Republicans. By evidence Trump supports those that are advocates QAnon conspiracies.

                            All the courts in the country support the results of the last election.

                              Russiagate. Jussie Smollet. The whole "Sicknick was killed by protestors" conspiracy theory. Hell, most of the stuff presented by Democrat managers in Impeachment 2: Impeachment Boogaloo, falls under the BlueAnon umbrella. So does the whole 'Neanderthal states are going to kill everyone with covid by opening up' conspiracy theory thats been shown to be embarassingly wrong.
