(RepublicanPress.org) – Democrats have been on a feeding frenzy lately regarding QAnon in the wake of the controversy surrounding freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). The corporate, or mainstream, media has blown up the subject of QAnon in an apparent attempt to paint the entire Republican Party in the same light.
The Federalist reported on this, pointing out that it’s spinning its own web of “pure fantasy.” They say it’s based on the same kind of wild conspiracy that led to the accusations Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The long-term question at the heart of the actual conflict in the Republican Party isn’t about QAnon or even about Trump. It’s about whether a post-Trump GOP will become a conservative populist party or revert to its pre-Trump form, quiescent and impotent. https://t.co/O3BiWuuWec

QAnon does exist, but information from the Pew Research Center found more Democrats were aware of the group than Republicans. In early 2020, about 28 percent of Democrats had heard about the group, versus just 18 percent of Republicans. By the fall, 55 percent of Democrats and 39 percent of Republicans knew about it. In addition, the research found that only 41 percent of GOP voters who knew about the group were supportive of it.
While the mainstream media has worked hard to make it seem like QAnon is representative of the party as a whole, this simply isn’t the case. Yes, there’s an internal battle for the future of the Republican party currently being waged. But there are other forces at work aside from QAnon or any outside group. Republicans conduct a post-election review after many elections, and there’s always some give and take as the party works to adjust to the changing attitudes of Americans.
