A Republican nominee for a House seat in Illinois claimed that 9/11 was an inside job and that singers Beyonce Knowles and Madonna were tied to the Illuminati, according to a CNN investigation.
Bill Fawell, who is running in Illinois’s 17th congressional district, published the theories in a 2012 book entitled “New American Revolution: The Constitutional Overthrow Of The United States Government” and in blog posts.
Beyonce’s 2013 Super Bowl halftime show was “a subversive attempt to brain wash the masses” orchestrated by her husband Jay-Z, who “has a long history of serving up the godless Illuminati and their cult, celebrating it and their Nazi like police state,” Fawell wrote in a 2013 blog post.
In the same post, he also said that Madonna was a “narcissist skank with the crooked teeth” and that her 2012 Super Bowl halftime show was “satanic.” Fawell recommended in the post that viewers tune in to the puppy bowl instead.
The republican’s conspiracy theories don’t end there; he also claimed that there was a third building destroyed during 9/11 in order to destroy CIA documents. “Nothing hit this building, not a thing, and it fell entirely upon its own. If it looks like a standard commercial implosion demolition, it’s because that is exactly what it is,” Fawell wrote in his book.
He is running against Rep. Cheri Bustos, the incumbent Democrat in the Illinois district. Bustos is expected to retain the district, having won by 20 points in 2016.
