Mayor Jeff Toborg Sorry for Sharing QAnon Post, Says They Have 'No Place in Our Society'

An under-fire mayor in Colorado has again denied he supports QAnon after he was found sharing slogans linked to the conspiracy theory on social media.

Parker Mayor Jeff Toborg posted an image of an American flag on Parler on December 20, before the app was taken down in the wake of the deadly attack on the Capitol which QAnon followers were a part of, along with the caption "WWG1WGA."

This is an abbreviation of the QAnon slogan "where we go one we go all," which is frequently used by supporters of the radical theory who believe in a secret pedophile ring of high-profile Satanists and eagerly awaited for mass executions to take place at the inauguration of Joe Biden.

Toborg also shared a video on the social media site claiming that the attack on the Capitol in Washington, D.C. was a left-wing false-flag operation, along with videos doubting the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Speaking to 9 News, Toborg said while he knew that WWG1WGA stood for, he had no idea it was a QAnon phrase.

"I didn't realize that was a part of Q until it was brought to my attention. I did some research. Obviously, I do not support Q, I don't believe in Q. I wasn't aware of all the details behind it, and quite honestly, I find no place in our society for that kind of rhetoric.

"I was shocked at the little bit when I dug into it to see what was behind it, and I have never believed in stuff like that, and I would never believe in stuff like that."

Speaking to Colorado Politics earlier this month, Toborg said he shared the "where we go one we go all" phrase because he thought it sounded "cool" and "very unifying."

"But since this week, basically, looking into it, it seems out there. Some of that dangerous rhetoric, it doesn't have a place in the public forum."

Toborg was also questioned by 9 News after he recently joined an online group set up by co-chair of Parker Republicans, Mark Hall, that threatened public health workers by publishing their home addresses online. Toborg said he immediately left the group after he was questioned by the network.

"People cannot be made to feel unsafe or be made unsafe simply for the job they do," he said. "Doxing is wrong. I am so sorry for even being associated with it for the couple of hours I was before you brought it to my attention."

Toborg also denied links to a militia group called United American Defense Force, which stems from Faith, Education, Commerce (FEC) United, a group that formed to protest coronavirus restrictions in the state.

"I had no part in the militia. That's not me denying. That was a separate and unequal part of FEC," Toborg said.
