Mike Pence Promoted an Anti-Abortion Movie Hours Before Film’s Organizers Pushed QAnon Conspiracy

Vice President Mike Pence lavished praise on the anti-abortion film “Unplanned” just before organizers behind the movie promoted the QAnon conspiracy on Twitter.

The theory, which alleges that there is a “deep state” global cabal running a pedophilia ring and working to undermine Donald Trump, is very popular among some supporters of the president.

“Because you never know how long before the next Twitter suspension we ask that you follow us on your other social media platforms,” the “Unplanned” Twitter account wrote in a post in response to claims that they are being censored by the platform.

Their tweet ended with several hashtags and slogans, one of which was “WWG1WGA” — a popular phrase used by members of the QAnon conspiracy that means “Where We Go One, We Go All.”

The account has since deleted the pro-QAnon message with no explanation.

Just a couple hours before the film boosted the ramblings of the pedophilia-obsessed Internet cult, Pence gave the movie a shout-out on his official Twitter account.

“So good to see movie theaters across the country showing @UnplannedMovie — a deeply inspiring new pro-life film based on the best-selling book by @AbbyJohnson. More & more Americans are embracing the sanctity of life because of powerful stories like this one. #Unplanned,” he wrote in a tweet this morning.

This is Pence’s second run-in with the QAnon conspiracy. Late last year, the vice president was spotted posing with a Florida law enforcement official who was sporting a vest patch with a QAnon emblem.
