Pro-Trump Pastor and Oklahoma Senate candidate Jackson Lahmeyer is finding out the hard way that the QAnon crowd he has courted might not be so trustworthy, after a rumor began to spread that he is a Satanic pedophile engaged in child sex trafficking.
Right Wing Watch reported that the Republican candidate “launched a primary challenge to Republican Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma earlier this year because he was outraged by Lankford’s failure to challenge the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory on Jan. 6 immediately following the right-wing insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.”
Lahmeyer has focused heavily on winning support from right-wing QAnon conspiracy theorists like Lin Wood and Michael Flynn, both of whom have endorsed his campaign. Lahmeyer has also been a regular participant at the “Restore America” rallies organized by right-wing conspiracy theorist Clay Clark, where he has been proudly posting photos of himself hanging out with the various election, COVID-19, and QAnon conspiracy theorist speakers at such events.
But support from such prominent QAnoners has not protected him, RWW reported, as he has become “the target of smears from QAnon conspiracy theorists who have reportedly accused him of pedophilia and child sex trafficking after he posted a photo of his young daughter wearing red shoes.”
As QAnon conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin once explained, many QAnon believers are convinced that “there is symbolism for red shoes in the occult and it’s also tied to satanic ritualistic abuse and the trafficking of children.”
Lahmeyer took to Facebook to complain, writing that his post of his daughter “was a harmless post but there is an individual out there who has been spreading things about me that are not true such as I am creation worshipper, a new world order globalist and more nonsensical stuff.”
“This person has also been spreading the narrative that I’m in involved in Child Sex Trafficking,” he continued. “I guess red shoes represent pedophilia according to this individual?”
I’ve been in ministry for years. Never any accusations whatsoever. Now all of a sudden I’m being accused of everything under the sun by one particular woman and some people don’t have enough discernment to determine right from wrong.
Unfortunately, I have to say it because people are asking me. I’m in no way involved in Child Sex Trafficking, pedophilia or devil worship. If you believe that it actually says more about you than it does me.
The dogs will continue to bark but the #LahmeyerForSenate train is going to move forward with full steam ahead.
