The anti-Masons in QAnon

I don't pay much attention to QAnon, but Robert Guffey, the author of Operation Mindfuck: QAnon and the Cult of Donald Trump, has a new piece up at Salon, "QAnon's weirdest obsession: Why does the radical far right fear the Masons?"


"Rene no longer teaches Bible classes at his church. Instead, he advocates for the destruction of American intelligence agencies. In his Sept. 30, 2021, episode, Rene casually said of the FBI that we need to 'blow it up and start over again from scratch!' On July 6, 2021, he waxed poetic about what he hoped would be the imminent destruction of the Washington Monument and the Statue of Liberty. 

"Why would a purportedly churchgoing, God-fearing Texas patriot pray for the violent destruction of such American landmarks? Because he and thousands of other evangelicals believe they were secretly constructed by Freemasons, who are essentially Satanists, and therefore must be obliterated."

I've had this book on my to read list for a minute now.
Is it good?
