^^^ What is -  ultimately - jaw-dropping is that none of those QAnon Bingo scenarios are any more outlandish than the actual QAnon orthodoxy.

Well let’s see here...

Jewish space lasers are starting forest fires in California to expand rail lines!  

Crisis actors are faking school shootings with the help of the mainstream media to take your guns away!  

Italian intelligence agencies rigged the American election using Hugo Chavez’s voting machines!

 

yup, about the same.

To be fair, even Mel Brooks admits to that one.

It's interesting that when I watch a show about Q like the 3 part Vice Series that was recently done or if I just check out an interview with an ex Q supporter like last night on D Lemon, I always seem come across a Bernie supporter who flipped to Q.

 

Makes me wonder how many of them defected.

One of the most heart-breaking parts of this Q stuff is how many friends, families, etc etc....saw something online that they found crazy and sent it to someone close as a gag, to have a good laugh at, and a lot of times that might have been the person's first exposure to "Q" and the person sending it thought nothing of it beyond the joke aspect.  Then 6 months down the road the person they sent it to is full-on radicalized and believing it.   The guilt factor is probably painful.

Galaxy brain stuff from Trump twitter.

Randomly blaming the left for things they’re doing or that hurt them in anyway has become a standard response for the right.  Im sure most educated republicans realize this is just politics, but there’s a large number that believe it.  Facts and what actually happened doesn’t matter.  Right is good and left is bad to these people.  I don’t mean that they favor the right, I mean they literally think the right is defined by good and the left is defined as evil.  Thus a thing being bad, or hurting the right politically, is evidence (to them, not in reality) that the left is behind it.  
 

With that sort of idiocy so heavily over represented it’s no wonder Q is so heavily right wing.  It’s easy to convince people that those they hate are behind any evil thing.  Like eating babies, for example.

New QAnon Theory Says Puppy Bowl Is Linked To Trump, “The Great Storm”

 

The Puppy Bowl is a wholesome and entertaining show, tied to Super Bowl weekend festivities, that seems by its very nature would be immune to links to QAnon. But that’s the magic of QAnon—as a writer’s revealed on Twitter, QAnon believers are connecting cute frolicking puppies to the Q-niverse.

 

Writer Arieh Kovler posted on Friday, "There is a QAnon theory that this weekend's Puppy Bowl XVII (17, geddit?) is somehow linked to or predicted by Q and Trump. Maybe the real storm was the Puppy Bowl all along."

 

(The letter "Q" is of course the 17th letter of the alphabet.)

 

The tweet then shows a promo for the event, streaming at 2pm ET on Discovery+ and airing on Animal Planet, coupled with screenshots tying Q and former President Donald Trump to "puppy" mentions.

He also added, "Oh, and some anons are linking it to the Dogecoin surge, of course," part of a recent trend of investors going in on unlikely investments to call our whole financial system into question.

QAnon Believers Are Obsessed With Hillary Clinton. She Has Thoughts.

 

A clear indication that Marjorie Taylor Greene was more than a dabbler in QAnon was her 2018 endorsement of “Frazzledrip,” one of the most grotesque tendrils of the movement’s mythology. You “have to go down a number of rabbit holes to get that far,” said Mike Rothschild, whose book about QAnon, “The Storm Is Upon Us,” comes out later this year.

 

The lurid fantasy of Frazzledrip refers to an imaginary video said to show Hillary Clinton and her former aide, Huma Abedin, assaulting and disfiguring a young girl, and drinking her blood. It holds that several cops saw the video, and Clinton had them killed.

 

When Greene posted a picture of Donald Trump with the mother of the slain N.Y.P.D. officer Miosotis Familia on Facebook, one of her commenters described Frazzledrip and wrote, “This was another Hillary hit.” Greene replied, “Yes Familia,” then continued, “I post things sometimes to see who knows things. Most the time people don’t. I’m glad to see your comment.”

 

Contemplating Frazzledrip, it occurred to me that QAnon is the obscene apotheosis of three decades of Clinton demonization. It’s other things as well, including a repurposed version of the old anti-Semitic blood libel, which accused Jews of using the blood of Christian children in their rituals, and a cult lusting for mass public executions. According to the F.B.I., it’s a domestic terror threat.

Diehard QAnon followers think Trump is secretly still president and carrying out executions at White House

 

Some of the most zealous followers of QAnon conspiracy theories now believe that Donald Trump is still president and is carrying out executions at the White House.

 

Believers in the unhinged theory that Mr Trump is Q — a leader sent to save America from a Satanic cabal of cannibals involved in a child abuse ring — were left stunned in January after he departed the White House.

 

Following the inauguration of Joe Biden as president, many followers have admitted to having been caught up in the fanaticism of the conspiracy, and have spoken of how they now feel they were deceived.

 

However, some refuse to let go and continue to grasp at wild new theories.

 

Ben Collins of NBC News highlighted one currently circulating amongst Facebook’s QAnon community members — that Mr Trump never actually left office, is secretly still president, and is carrying out public hangings of his “Deep State” enemies in front of the White House.

Sad QAnon Followers Are at a Precarious Pivot Point

 

Many are realizing they were lied to. When followers turn away from Q, what will they turn toward? There are several obvious paths.

 

While many are abandoning Q, they are not necessarily abandoning Trump. He could offer them a lifeline that doesn't include the baby-eating cabal but that does pull them deeper into a cult-of-personality-style political movement. Thanks largely to his social media deplatforming, Trump has been relatively silent since the insurrection. If he decides to reactivate and marshal his supporters, this may be an attractive path for the former QAnon adherents.

 

We already see white supremacy groups intentionally working to recruit disillusioned QAnon followers in their online spaces, offering a humiliation-free path of acceptance and radicalization. Some followers are also shifting to the belief system of groups like the Sovereign Citizens Movement, whose ideas had crept into the QAnon mythology. There is now a great risk for QAnon followers to become more extreme by devoting their energies and time to these more extreme groups.

 

But there is also an opportunity to bring them onto a path leading back to facts and reality. Research shows that merely insulting or humiliating cult members is unlikely to lead to defection. Leading followers from QAnon requires an off-ramp from QAnon, and Trump, that preserves their dignity and offers purpose that will fulfill some of the emotional and psychological needs that the QAnon community was formerly satisfying.

 

Because distrust of liberals and the media was fundamental to Trump and Q, it falls to conservatives to engage the QAnon followers.

Trump's DC hotel is hiking prices for March 4 - the day QAnon followers think the former president will be sworn in

  • QAnon followers believe that Trump will be sworn in on March 4, 2021.

  • This belief is rooted in a conspiracy theory that all presidents post-1871 are illegitimate.

  • Trump's DC hotel is the only one in the area to have hiked prices for March 4, Forbes reported.

71b057f455338b2861ddaa254af978b7

 

QAnon's most dedicated followers still believe that former President Donald Trump, who lost the 2020 presidential election, is yet to be sworn in. March 4, 2021 is a day they have marked in their diaries, insisting that is the date when Trump will be inaugurated in Washington, DC, and, ultimately, return to power. Coincidentally, Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC is hiking up the prices of suites around that period. The hotel, just blocks away from the White House, has almost tripled the rates for some rooms on the nights of March 3 and 4, according to Forbes.

Am I the only one who thought the Jeep SB ad was incredibly tone deaf? Meet in the middle again? With domestic terrorists? Forgetting what the QOP has been like for 4+ years?

 

**** that, Boss. 


They have a target audience apparently.
