Elect a New Congress is a wingnut super PAC devoted to “restoring liberty” in Congress, with “liberty” understood in a somewhat idiosyncratic way, it seems. It’s founder, Bill Fawell (not “Falwell” – some people apparently miss that), wants to free us not only from the left, but from the Illuminati. And the Illuminati are everywhere. As evidence of their influence, Fawell can point to Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime show in 2012, where the singer wore an Egyptian headdress and was surrounded by male dancers who formed a pyramid – a well-known part of secret Illuminati symbolism. But he feared Beyonce’s halftime show in 2013 would be worse:
“If you look at some of Beyonce’s performances … it’s like the military industrial police state,” said Fawell, who also pointed out that she has previously performed surrounded by male dancers in protective helmets: “That’s the subliminal message that will be spreading worldwide because everyone watches the Super Bowl.” (Methinks he overestimates the worldwide popularity of American football, but I don’t think that’s the weakest premise in his reasoning.)
His super PAC doesn’t appear to have been particularly successful, but Fawell has tried to run for Congress himself, among other things as a write-in in Illinois’s 17th district in 2014. He initially announced that he’d be running for the Constitution Party, but found the process of collecting signatures to be prohibitive.
At least he has managed to get himself a slot on Coast to Coast AM, the qualification for which is that you’re a blathering lunatic.
Diagnosis: Blathering lunatic.
