GOP Sen. Ben Sasse Says QAnon Is A Problem His Party Needs To Address

In the aftermath of the U.S. Capitol Hill riots, Republican Senator Ben Sasse said his party should address QAnon and its supporters.

Sasse said his party should immediately “repudiate the nonsense that has set our party on fire,” pointing to QAnon as one of the factors that caused the riots.

“We can dedicate ourselves to defending the Constitution and perpetuating our best American institutions and traditions, or we can be a party of conspiracy theories,” he wrote, describing QAnon as “the blossoming of a rotten seed that took root in the Republican Party some time ago and has been nourished by treachery, poor political judgment, and cowardice.”

“Until last week, many party leaders and consultants thought they could preach the Constitution while winking at QAnon,” Sasse continued. “They can’t. The GOP must reject conspiracy theories or be consumed by them. Now is the time to decide what this party is about.”

Sasse also turned his attention to newly-elected Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who ran her campaign in full support of QAnon, for not denouncing its impact in inciting the U.S. Capitol Hill riots on January 6th.

“She’s already announced plans to try to impeach Joe Biden on his first full day as president,” he said. “She’ll keep making fools out of herself, her constituents, and the Republican Party.”

Axios adds:

  • The Nebraska senator criticized Trump’s embrace of QAnon supporters last August, warning that Democrats could “take the Senate” and that “garbage like this will be a big part of why they won.”
  • Months later, the Democrats went on to win control of the Senate.
