Republican Wants to Take Over Congress with ‘Info Wars Candidates’ – Patheos (blog)

Michael Snyder is a far-right thinker running for Congress from (of course) Idaho. Hes also a big fan and frequent guest of Alex Jones. He told Jones that hes running in hopes of inspiring others to fill Congress with Info Wars candidates.

The movement needs to educate people, Snyder said, and thats what you guys are doing every day with the show and thats a big part of the reason Im running because we need people to runsome will win, some will losewe need people to run all over the country or else were going to get bad people into office. But a big part of running for office is educating people, because when you run for office, you get a platform. And whether you win or lose, youre going to talk to thousands, if not ultimately millions of people for the bigger campaigns, and people are going to hear the message, people are going to get educated. So part of this is an education process of what were trying to do, get the truth out.

The InfoWars audience has gotten so large and so powerful, Snyder said, that we could literally start taking over the Republican Party if we just get energized and motivated and galvanized to go vote.

Hell, theyre already part of the way there with people like Dana Rohrebacher and Louis Gohmert. They havent taken over completely, but I think hes right that they could largely do it. You look at the Republican National Committee and you have people like Dave Agema and Tamara Scott. This is I think the most interesting open question of the Trump era: In 10 or 15 years, will we look back on this as an anomaly, a one-off event that was the result of an odd confluence of events? Or will it be the new template for Republican candidates? I dont know the answer to that question.
