National Association of Police Organizations endorses Trump

Postby Sisyphus on July 17th, 2020, 5:50 pm 

The National Association of Police Officers, a lobbying group that says it represents more than 241,000 officers nationwide, endorsed President Trump for a second term on Wednesday. This comes after the association had supported Mr. Trump's challenger, Joe Biden, in the 2008 and 2012 elections.

The head of the New York Police Department's second-largest police union gave a television interview Friday afternoon while sitting in front of a mug emblazoned with QAnon imagery and slogans.

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/17/us/head-nypd-union-qanon-mug/index.html

The mug was positioned behind Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, during a roughly seven-minute interview on the Fox News show "Your World with Neil Cavuto.”

It featured the word "QANON" and the hashtag #WWG1WGA, which stands for "where we go one, we go all," a popular slogan among QAnon supporters. At the center of the mug was a large letter Q, which refers to a supposed government insider who, according to QAnon supporters, posts cryptic clues on the Internet about the "deep state."

Followers of the QAnon conspiracy believe there is a "deep state" within the US government that is controlled by a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles. According to the conspiracy, the cabal is largely run by Democratic politicians and liberal celebrities -- and President Donald Trump is trying to take them down.

More than a year ago, the FBI reportedly assessed that QAnon was a dangerous movement that was likely to inspire its most extreme members to commit violent acts of domestic terrorism.

Mullins and the union didn't respond to requests for comment. A spokesman for Mayor Bill de Blasio retweeted an image of the mug, calling it "delusional."

"It's frightening that someone so closely linked to law enforcement would seemingly endorse the ideas of Q, which is dedicated to the illegal and unconstitutional use of the military as a police force to hold tribunals and execute America's enemies," said Mike Rothschild, who recently published a book examining and debunking some of the most prominent conspiracy theories.

I wonder whether they're prepared to keep him in the white house when he loses the election.
...If he loses the election. If there is an election. If the election is organized enough to be tallied...
You know, this is all shaping up very ugly, indeed. There will be much collateral damage.

The QAnon mug doesn't surprise me. The U.S. police have always been full of KKK and other white nationalists.
