MAGA pastor Jackson Lahmeyer launched a primary challenge to Republican Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma earlier this year because he was outraged by Lankford’s failure to challenge the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory on Jan. 6 immediately following the right-wing insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
Lahmeyer has made attacking the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election a centerpiece of his campaign, repeatedly vowing that if he is elected to Congress, he will make it his mission to hold those who supposedly stole the election from former President Donald Trump accountable for treason.
Lahmeyer has focused heavily on winning support from right-wing QAnon conspiracy theorists like Lin Wood and Michael Flynn, both of whom have endorsed his campaign. Lahmeyer has also been a regular participant at the “Restore America” rallies organized by right-wing conspiracy theorist Clay Clark, where he has been proudly posting photos of himself hanging out with the various election, COVID-19, and QAnon conspiracy theorist speakers at such events.
Interestingly, Lahmeyer’s flirtations with QAnon have not prevented him from becoming the target of smears from QAnon conspiracy theorists who have reportedly accused him of pedophilia and child sex trafficking after he posted a photo of his young daughter wearing red shoes.
As QAnon conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin once explained, many QAnon believers are convinced that “there is symbolism for red shoes in the occult and it’s also tied to satanic ritualistic abuse and the trafficking of children.”
Ironically, while Lahmeyer had no problem affiliating his campaign with QAnon conspiracy theorists, he’s now complaining about being a target of those same conspiracy theorists on his Facebook page.
The UGLY side of Politics 🤦♂️
Last week, I posted this pic of Eva out on the campaign trail with me and she was so proud of her red shoes because it matched the colors of the #LahmeyerForSenate gear.
It was a harmless post but there is an individual out there who has been spreading things about me that are not true such as I am creation worshipper, a new world order globalist and more nonsensical stuff.
This person has also been spreading the narrative that I’m in involved in Child Sex Trafficking.
I guess red shoes represent pedophilia according to this individual? 🤔
I’ve been in ministry for years. Never any accusations whatsoever. Now all of a sudden I’m being accused of everything under the sun by one particular woman and some people don’t have enough discernment to determine right from wrong.
Unfortunately, I have to say it because people are asking me. I’m in no way involved in Child Sex Trafficking, pedophilia or devil worship. If you believe that it actually says more about you than it does me.
The dogs will continue to bark but the #LahmeyerForSenate train 🚂 is going to move forward with full steam ahead 🇺🇸
