Meet the Tomahawk-Toting QAnoner Terrorizing School Boards

The audience at a meeting last month of the Ankeny, Iowa, school board exploded over the prospect of the board reinstating a mask mandate, with parents shouting at board members who supported the mask rule.

“We know where you live!” one parent yelled at the school board members. “We’re going to stalk you!”

The scene, which ended with the board voting to reimpose the mask rule, looked like so many other school board meetings across the country this year over coronavirus restrictions. But the Ankeny school board has become a larger flashpoint in the fight over mask mandates in schools, thanks in large part to a leather-clad, tomahawk-toting QAnon personality named Scott McKay.

McKay, a middle-aged former bodybuilder whose followers call him “Patriot Streetfighter,” has used his sizable online platform and frequent use of violent rhetoric to turn the Ankeny mask debate into a national event among followers of the QAnon conspiracy theory, urging his followers to bombard specific school board members with complaints.

Despite his bizarre demeanor and online presence, McKay has marshaled his fan base to engage in sometimes hostile activism at school board meetings against mask mandates—despite his own recent experience with a COVID outbreak at one of his rallies.

McKay inserted himself into the Ankeny mask debate in late August when he devoted an episode of his online Patriot Streetfighter talk show to the “Iowa Mama Bears,” Ankeny mothers Emily Peterson and Kimberly Reicks. The pair have become rising right-wing personalities for their opposition to mask requirements in Ankeny schools, hobnobbing with Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) and QAnon celebrities like former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.

1. Iowa used to be a nice, sane midwestern state.

I used to work in Iowa. Seems to have gone completely batshit now.

4. We need stronger anti-harassment laws to protect

elected officials.

Even if that means that we on the left cannot follow some shit-bag into a restaurant.

But we must stop these assholes from intimidating school boards and city councils.

They don't like something... they are free to speak at the town square, they are free to run against whoever they don't like in the next election. They cannot be free to carry weapons to meetings and shout they "they know where you live, where your children go to school."

16. Right? There is a time for public forum.

They don’t get to disrupt official meetings. They DEFINITELY don’t get to threaten people.

of us have to put up with this.

7. If they don't like mask mandates

Maybe they would like on-line education better? If staff and students can’t be made safe from infection at school the alternative should be to send everyone home and work from there.

Inconvenient? Hell yes - but that’s the way the cookie crumbles.

14. Policy by threats of violence is extortion of a sort

and threats are a crime. Stalking is a crime in the right circumstances. How is this allowed to continue?

20. Obama 2.0

These un-American pukes did the same thing when Obama won. The issue then was healthcare. They called themselves teabggers and disrupted public meetings. Bunch of sore losers.
I actually had some fun with them. I went to repuke public meetings and disrupted the meeting. When they asked why I was doing it the answer was simple. Your teabaggers started it. I had to roll in the grass with one guy.
