Bill Mitchell Sees ‘No Downside’ to the QAnon Conspiracy Theory

On Friday’s episode of his “YourVoice America” program, ardent pro-Trump commentator and right-wing conspiracy theorist Bill Mitchell dismissed reports that the FBI is warning that conspiracy theories such as QAnon could pose a domestic terrorism threat.

Mitchell has long defended and promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory—which asserts that the Trump administration is working to dismantle a global satanic pedophile ring that includes top high-level Democratic officials, business leaders, and entertainment figures—and he did so once again on his Friday program, insisting that QAnon is a good thing, regardless of whether the conspiracy theory is true or not.

“If [QAnon] just is something that is interesting to talk about, if it’s just patriots getting together and postulating about what the deep state might be doing and what Donald Trump might be doing about it and it just ends up being a fun thing that keeps everybody motivated and encouraged, that’s fine,” he said. “[But] there is a possibility that it could all be true and it could all be foretelling the destruction of the deep state and what the Trump plan is for the deep state. Trust the plan. Maye it’s all true.”

“One way or the other—it’s a harmless fun thing, or it’s true and it’s going to mean the destruction of the deep state—to me, I like those odds,” Mitchell declared. “I see no downside in it.”
