Since Q of QAnon disappeared (He disappeared? Who knew? I didn't...) apparently there have been lots of conspiracy twatwaffles angling to replace him as lead whackjob. On the shortlist was prolific anti-Semite "GhostEzra," who'd garnered over 400K followers on the various winger platforms, where he spread his horrible (if unoriginal) propaganda about Jewish people far and wide. Unfortunately for GhostEzra, he's been found out.

Yes, kids, Robert Randall Smart of Boca Raton, FL is your winger anti-Semite du jour, having left a trail of bread crumbs for noble internet sleuths, Logically. to follow and ultimately deduce his identity. From the Logically. piece:

GhostEzra, who first appeared online at the end of 2020, has made claims about Jewish control of Big Pharma, the media, and central banking. The account has also claimed that Jews are responsible for both world wars and that the people who “identify as Jewish but are not actually even Jews” have a goal of “total world domination and control.” He has linked his followers multiple times to neo-Nazi propaganda, including a 12-hour film that, among other claims, asserts that Jews created communism with a goal of “total world domination.” As a result, the comments under the account’s Telegram posts now effectively function as a neo-Nazi discussion forum.

Charming, no?

This dude is 39, a serial entrepreneur, attends several churches, and manages to find the time to open account after account blaming Jews for everything from Communism to the several hemorrhoids making his whiny ass raw and itchy.

You live in Boca Raton, Robert. A quick search of the Google Machine tells me it's "a rich area, known for its affluence and wealth, living in Boca Raton is similar to living in Miami but without the large crowds." Can't you better spend your time at the "golf courses, parks and beaches?" I hear "Large, oceanfront Red Reef Park is home to the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center with trails, a butterfly garden and a sea turtle sanctuary." Doesn't that sound like more fun than bitching about the circumcised?

Anyhow, Smart took the inherent anti-Semitism of QAnon conspiracies and brought them back to their original, mob violence-inducing rhetoric, as if straight out of Frau Himmler's "How To Cook A Jew From Scratch" cookbook. According to Sarah Hightower, cult and extremism expert quoted by Logically., “These examples go beyond what one might consider more 'mainstream' or diluted antisemitic stereotypes and dogwhistles. This rhetoric is closer to the modern KKK and neo nazi skinhead groups of the 80s and 90s. It's important to note the distinctions.”

Yeah, distinctions noted, Ms. Hightower. I have my doubts about Robert Randall Smart "disappearing" the way people are saying Q of QAnon did. After all - Q didn't disappear. He was just discovered to be Ron Watkins, and Watkins keeps turning up like a bad penny. Robert Smart will end up in Trump's orbit by next week, mark my words.
