Election subversion right here in Monroe County

I heard that a small group of people had a parade through East Stroudsburg to Stroudsburg over the past weekend, ostensibly about the "Save The Children" sex trafficking issue. They had a police escort and a fire truck. I'm told there were Trump signs which I found odd since Trump has been accused of raping an underage girl and publicly bragged about walking into a dressing room of undressed teenage girls. Also someone was carrying an "Investigate Pizzagate" sign which is about a 4 year old truly sick lie propagated by insane rightwing operatives about a child sex ring in a pizza place basement in D.C. to attack the Hillary campaign. And we have seen what lies like that accomplished.

Then I saw an article in the New York Times today linking the lunatic fringe conspiracy group, QAnon, which supports Trump, to having hijacked the #SaveTheChildren moniker to lure unknowing people into their web of lies. Now I learn there is a local Facebook group of that name ( Marching in The Poconos to Save the Children ) that posts QAnon anti-government images and conspiracies (See below image as an example). None of which has anything to do with children. Please be careful who and what you support. It may have a plausible sounding veneer but just be a scam. Frighteningly QAnon has been labeled as a Domestic Terrorist group by the FBI in 2019. 
QAnon image from This is all about subverting our election. Don't fall for it. VOTE in the upcoming General Election to bring back truth and decency back to our government. And not just vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Be sure to vote for all our candidates including Matt Cartwright and Susan Wild for Congress, and our three candidates for statewide office:  Josh Shapiro, Attorney General, Joe Torsella, Treasurer, and Nina Ahmad, Auditor General. Be sure to re-elect Rep. Maureen Madden (D-115th), and elect Adam Rodriguez (189th) and Claudette Williams (176th) as PA State Representatives, we'll be joining the effort to flip our Commonwealth Bright BLUE and give Governor Wolf a legislature that won't block his initiatives and finally allow popular Democratic proposals on the agenda.

Vote for all the Democratic candidates. You can Register and request a Mail Ballot online at Do it now and be sure to VOTE your Mail Ballot ASAP if you are mailing it back as Trump is deliberately hurting the USPS to stop your vote from counting.
