MAGA Rapper Who Painted Trump Murals On His Lawn Could Be The Next QAnon Rep To Join Congress
Majewski for Congress

J.R. Majewski, a QAnon adherent and part-time MAGA rapper, could become the next conspiracy theorist in Congress after he won the Republican primary for Ohio’s 9th District this week.

Majewski, who works at a nuclear power company and traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in the "Stop the Steal" rally on January 6 before former President Donald Trump's supporters stormed the United States Capitol, first garnered attention in 2020 by painting a 19,000 square-foot Trump campaign sign on his lawn.

That notoriety–and a congratulatory tweet from Trump–helped him ride the wave of Trumpism in the 9th District, winning 35 percent of the vote in the primary for Republicans to replace Democratic Representative Marcy Kaptur.

Majewski's rapping has received newfound attention in the days since his primary win, and a video circulated on social media showing him rapping a verse from "Let's Go Brandon," a song by rapper Loza Alexander that has been used by conservatives to attack Democratic President Joe Biden since it went viral on TikTok.

You can watch the video, which shows Majewski wearing a “Let’s Go Brandon” shirt and ill-fitting cargo shorts, below.

The anti-Biden rap song was inspired by the "Let's go Brandon!" meme that took over right-wing social media since NBC's Kelli Stavast interviewed NASCAR driver Brandon Brown after he came in first place at Alabama's Talladega Superspeedway in early October.

The interview went viral because the crowd could be heard chanting "F*** Joe Biden" in the background, which Stavast misheard as "Let's go Brandon!"

The moment, and the use of the chant since, is widely viewed as an example of the heightened political polarization in American politics as the Biden administration continues to work on bridging the gaps in a stalled legislature in an effort to codify its social and economic agenda.

Majewski raps that "Joe is focused on ice cream while he’s crappin’ his pants,” while pushing back against COVID-19 vaccinations. He also declares Biden is hampering "our dreams and our freedom," criticizes "woke" politics and calls for a wall to be constructed at the United States-Mexico border.

The video of Majewski's rapping prompted many to mock his candidacy and urge fellow voters to consider voting for his Democratic opposition.



Should Majewski win his congressional bid, he would become the latest QAnon adherent to rise to prominence in Washington.

QAnon, whose believers allege Democrats are part of a Satan-worshipping, baby-eating global pedophile ring that conspired against former President Donald Trump during his time in office, counts Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene as one of its more vocal adherents.

Greene, by her own admission, has claimed that the eponymous "Q," the anonymous individual or individuals from whom many of these conspiracies originate, is "a patriot" and that they've provided adherents a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it."

Aside from Greene, many of former President Trump's supporters have attracted attention for making bizarre claims, behavior that has sparked discussion among mental health experts and political scientists alike who've expressed concerns about the prevalence of conspiracy theories within the right-wing ecosystem.
