The Republican National Convention has abruptly removed Trump adviser and “Angel Mom” Mary Ann Mendoza from Tuesday night’s speaking lineup, CNN reported.

The cancellation comes after Mendoza had linked to a lengthy thread from a QAnon conspiracy theorist that laid out a fevered, anti-Semitic view of the world. In its telling, the Rothschilds—a famous Jewish banking family from Germany—created a plot to terrorize non-Jewish “goyim,” with purported details of their scheme that included plans to “make the goyim destroy each other” and “rob the goyim of their landed properties.”

“Do yourself a favor and read this thread,” Mary Ann Mendoza, who is a member of the Trump campaign’s advisory board, tweeted to her more than 40,000 followers Tuesday morning.

The Daily Beast reports: “Drawing on more than a century’s worth of anti-Semitic hoaxes and smears, the thread claimed that malevolent Jewish forces in the banking industry are out to enslave non-Jews and promote world wars. Riddled with QAnon references, the thread from Twitter user @WarNuse claimed that the Titanic had been sunk to protect the Federal Reserve, and that every president between John F. Kennedy and Tweety McTreason was a ‘slave president’ in the thrall of a global cabal.”

The thread also promoted “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” an anti-Semitic hoax popular in Nazi Germany, and claimed that its allegations about a Jewish plot to control the world are real.

Mendoza took to Twitter to address the backlash, writing: “My apologies for not paying attention to the intent of the whole message. That does not reflect my feelings or personal thoughts whatsoever.”

CNN now reporting that Mary Ann Mendoza has been abruptly removed from tonight’s program. Mendoza just tweeted an apology for retweeting anti-Semitic QAnon conspiracies https://t.co/rC8qaC9A5n
