When They’re Funny and They Don’t Know It: “The Illuminati Is Controlling McConnell!”

Radical right-wing pastor Greg Locke claimed during a sermon that Senator Mitch McConnell was "controlled by 'Illuminati hand signals' when Congress gathered to certify the election results last week."

"Locke... spoke at ...Stop the Steal events in Washington, D.C., that took place before before MAGA activists ‚Äčand members of militia organizations and such far-right hate groups as Proud Boys breached security and stormed the Capitol..." reports Right Wing Watch.

As evidence, Locke claimed "that a person seated behind McConnell was flashing Illuminati hand signals as a threat that he would be killed if he didn't follow orders." To add to the laughability of all this it turns out that the alleged Illuminati agent sitting behind McConnell was Republican Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas who had objected to the certification of the election! It's a case of when you're too stupid to know you're hilarious...

Apparently some far-right heads simply exploded when McConnell stated that Biden won and the election should not be challenged. The Proud Boys and the Maga hatters and the Reverend Locks and their ilk were able to ignore the fact that more than 60 judges, many of them Republicans, some of them appointed by Trump, said the "evidence" for election tampering in favor of Biden was nil; was nada, was a big zero, and, to be clear, there wasn't any...When the supposed video proof of election tampering displayed by Giuliani at a hearing, turned out to be edited by Giuliani's people, without their telling anyone...and the full video showed nothing but an ordinary vote processing procedure...That, too, they could shrug off. But when McConnell, one of Trump's allies, said the election was valid, and should not be challenged--guys like Locke couldn't handle it. Their world unraveled and they went a little nuts. Or, really, nuttier. He already believed in the Illuminati controlled deep state--surely alien reptoids can't be far behind...
