“A popular, vociferously antisemitic promoter of the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory was identified as an evangelical Christian man from Florida.
The man, who goes by GhostEzra on the encrypted messaging app Telegram, has more than 300,000 followers and posts ‘explicit Nazi propaganda, including outright Holocaust denial and a slew of conspiracy theories that often range from obliquely to explicitly antisemitic,’ according to Logically, an organization that tracks disinformation online and uncovered his identity.”

It’s not a surprise that an infamous promoter of pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theories was identified as an evangelical Christian man from Florida. The Sunshine State is the epicenter of anti-vaxxer mania, QAnon conspiracy theories, evangelical fervor and Trump cultic activity.
It’s also not surprising that Florida, a Mecca of evangelical Christianity, is a breeding ground for vile politicians the likes of Senator Marco Rubio and Governor Ron DeSantis who invoke the name of Jesus while promoting un-Christian policies that disfranchise racial and religious minorities.
White evangelicals make a fetish of the state of Israel, while at the same time many of them believe Jews control the media and the government in the United States and international Jewish bankers control the world economy. They believe that the United States should financially and militarily support Israel, while at the same time they believe Jews secretly run the world.
QAnon cultists like Ghost Ezra believe Trump is fighting a cabal of Democratic politicians and Hollywood stars who kidnap children, and harvest their blood, this is just a new version of centuries old antisemitic tropes.
There is nothing new under the sun, religious fascists like American white evangelicals and conspiracy theorists like QAnon fanatics have been around forever, and we must never grow weary of fighting their message of hatred with truth, love and justice.
