MAGA Army Shuns #JusticeForJ6 Rally as FBI "False Flag"

Surprisingly, many Trump supporters and QAnon disciples are skipping the September 18th D.C. rally supporting 1/6 "political prisoners"—here's what they're doing instead

In the days leading up to a September 18th D.C. rally demanding justice for #J6 insurrectionists, a stubborn glitch developed in the alt-reality Trump partisans have created for themselves: MAGA enthusiasts can’t seem to agree on whether or not it’s a planned false flag by the FBI.

The issue apparently stems from a belief by Trump supporters and QAnon adherents that other Trump supporters did not, in fact, commit horrible acts of violence like the one Status Coup exposed as they stormed the Capitol on January 6th. As a result, in their mind, January 6th was a false flag and set up.

The group planning the 9/18 D.C. event, Look Ahead America, is led by Matt Braynard, who briefly worked for Trump’s 2016 campaign before finding mild success pushing the entirely false narrative that the 2020 election was stolen. Braynard, unlike the majority of Americans who live on planet Earth, believes a great injustice was done in holding these domestic terrorists accountable in any form.

He’s not alone in this feeling:

Braynard and Look Ahead America seem frustrated that several high-up figures in the Trump world, including the Donald himself, are advising supporters not to attend his #JusticeForJ6 rally.

What a snag.

In a September 16th interview with The Federalist, former President Trump said:

“People are so disgusted with the way people are being treated from the January 6 situation. It’s a combination of that compared to how Antifa and BLM were treated. When you compare the treatment, it is so unjust, it is so unfair. It’s disgraceful.” He went on to say, “on Saturday [at the Justice for J6 rally on September 18th], that’s a setup. If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up they’ll be harassed.”

This sentiment has been echoed by others in Trump's world; or, in the case of crank conspiracy lawyer Lin Wood, those who desperately wish they were. Here’s what Wood posted in his Telegram group:

Ron Watkins (CodeMonkeyZ), thought by some to be the actual leader of the QAnon conspiracy, echoed the sentiment to shun the “FBI” D.C. rally:

Popular QAnon conspiracy theorist Jordan Sather had this to say in a video last week: "The idea is to hold a rally in Washington D.C. to call for the truth behind January 6th to be told and the release of the political prisoners who are still in jail over January 6th, right?...Might be very benevolent reasons behind this, but that is a very bad idea...because the FBI is just looking at that licking their chops like...'you dumbass motherfuckers, we're going to get this false flag going!'...Like clockwork today, Andrew McCabe goes on CNN...gets told by his handlers that law enforcement needs to take the upcoming rightwing [Justice for J6] rally in DC very seriously...”

Sather goes on to say: “We also have the Washington Post, which you can think of as the CIA's media [saying]...'It's a real possibility that our next 9/11 could arrive from within...' So you can just's the manufactured consensus...They're just warning people like something bad's gonna happen, and then, yeah, sure, something bad happens but it's going to be a freaking false flag and they're going to blame it on a Trump supporter, a Q supporter, an election fraud truther, something like that, right?...It's so obvious...making my job easy, though. Great content." 

So, while no one knows what will happen at the D.C. rally (DHS expects about 700 people and has reinstalled protective fencing), the faction that believes this to be an FBI op seems to be planning to hit the streets in their local areas instead.

There are planned rallies in most states against so-called “covid tyranny”—aka lifesaving measures—in addition to local #JusticeForJ6 rallies. Many people in online MAGA and QAnon groups have indicated that they plan to attend those or rallies at their state capitols instead of making the trek to D.C. like they might have done if not for the pesky FBI.

Dr. Simone Gold of America’s Frontline Doctors, known for pushing unscientific and highly dangerous COVID conspiracy theories like the use of anti-parasite drug ivermectin, is serving as the keynote speaker at a rally in San Francisco instead of attending the D.C. rally.

Despite the warnings, other MAGAS and Q’s still plan to brave our nation’s capital:

One thing is for sure–this guy won’t be there, thankfully:

This is a highly dangerous time, partially due to misinformation and disinformation. What happened on January 6 weighs on Americans–true Patriots–and anxiety about this rally is understandably high.

After all, no matter which side of the rally-FBI-false-flag-debate these Trump supporters fall on, we’ve all already lost.
