NYMAG: Who is QAnon? The Storm Conspiracy, Explained


Recommended Posts

Does yoga have a conspiracy theory problem?

 

Throughout her career as a yoga teacher, Seane Corn has been used to hearing students and colleagues rail against mainstream medicine. She even shares some of their concerns.

But when the coronavirus pandemic began in 2020, Seane noticed a change.

 

"I started to get text messages and emails inviting me to speak on panels or listen to leaders talking about anti-vaccination - but within that, there was this rhetoric about Covid being a hoax," she told the BBC.

 

"They would then start to send me information about Big Pharma, which then led into information related to Bill Gates, then to sex trafficking," says Ms Corn. "I also saw a different language being used amongst my peers: 'The Great Awakening', 'The Storm', 'Where We Go One, We Go All'."

 

QAnon is a wide-ranging constellation of unfounded conspiracy theories, centred on the idea that a cabal of sex-trafficking Satanist paedophiles has infiltrated governments, businesses and media around the world - and that former US President Donald Trump is working to bring them down.

 

Its appeal to members of the yoga community may come as a surprise to some. But since the start of the pandemic, a number of western yoga and "wellness" influencers used their their social media platforms to share QAnon conspiracies and discourage the use of face masks and vaccines.

 

Often content is posted with pictures of natural scenery and spiritual language to lend it more popular appeal - a phenomenon dubbed "pastel QAnon" by Marc-André Argentino, a doctoral student at Concordia University.

So now the QAnon morons are following what the Ayatollah from Iran says:

 

The latest viral COVID-19 conspiracy theory boosted by QAnon falsely claims vaccines turn children gay or trans

 

False allegations that COVID-19 vaccines turn children gay or trans are spreading rapidly on Telegram, the messaging-based social-media app.

 

Ayatollah Abbas Tabrizian, an Iranian cleric who is known for spreading false medical claims, appeared to be the first to popularize the bogus claim in a post on Tuesday for his more than 210,000 Telegram followers, the Jerusalem Post reported.

 

Following Tabrizian's Telegram post, popular figures within the world of QAnon, the baseless far-right conspiracy theory alleging Donald Trump is fighting to destroy a cabal of pedophiles, began to discuss the baseless claim. Influential QAnon channels, including one with more than 182,000 subscribers, began circulating the idea, using convoluted and inaccurate logic to question whether vaccinations could impact the gender and sexuality of children. These posts have tens of thousands of views.

 

MelQ, a QAnon influencer with 57,000 Telegram subscribers, shared a news article that referenced Tabrizian's comments. The post, in which the influencer shared a conspiracy theory claiming that vaccines in general cause "Gender confusion," has 71,000 views as of Friday morning. A Telegram representative did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Pizzagate’s violent legacy

 

The gunman who terrorized a D.C. pizzeria is out of prison. The QAnon conspiracy theories he helped unleash are out of control.
 

He slipped out of bed before sunrise and started driving, spurred by the baseless claims he would soon help make famous. As he sped the 350 miles from his hometown in North Carolina to the nation’s capital, Edgar Maddison Welch tilted his cellphone camera toward himself and pressed record.

 

“I can’t let you grow up in a world that’s so corrupt by evil,” he told the two young daughters he had left sleeping back in Salisbury, “without at least standing up for you and for other children just like you.”

 

So on he drove, to the supposed center of that corruption: Comet Ping Pong, a popular pizzeria in Northwest Washington where, according to the false claims known as Pizzagate, powerful Democrats were abusing children. And Welch, a struggling 28-year-old warehouse worker, intended to rescue them.

Just imagine all the QAnon morons microwaving snow to see if it's fake.

 

Yes, There’s A QAnon Conspiracy Theory That The Snow In Texas Is Fake

 

Much of the country has been hit with extreme winter weather this week, with the most dramatic example coming in Texas. Snow, ice, and freezing temperatures brought the state’s power grid on the precipice of collapse, and some Texans are still without power, water, or both.

 

Yet there are QAnon believers who are sharing conspiracy theories that the snow is not actually real snow.


Sara Aniano went to the depths of QAnon Instagram to report on this. She noted, "Somewhere at the cross-section of QAnon/garden variety conspiracy theorists is this obsession with the snow in Texas - particularly the theory that it is not organic in origin, but man-made."

 

Sharing a screenshot of video showing a demo that may or may not be real, she added, "The chief concern here is that the snow apparently "doesn't melt," and then concluded, in all caps, "I'M SO TIRED."

QAnon Hardliners Are Doubling Down on Theory Donald Trump Will Be Reinstated on March 4

 

Experts have warned the potential for further humiliation next month after another one of their predictions fails to come to pass will not damage the QAnon movement and they will continue to pose an extremist threat.

 

Followers of the radical movement, listed as a domestic terrorist threat by the FBI, have penciled in March 4 as the next significant date in their calendar, believing this will be the day Donald Trump is reinstated as president.

 

The latest theory, following on from the failed prediction that Trump would order the mass arrest and executions of satanic pedophiles during Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20, uses arcane reasoning heavily lifted from the beliefs of the sovereign citizen movement.

 

According to QAnon followers, a secret law was passed in 1871 which turned the U.S. into a corporation. As a result of this, all other presidents after Ulysses S. Grant have been illegitimate, meaning Trump will become the 19th president during a new inauguration on March 4.

 

The reason behind the March 4 date is that this is when presidential inauguration ceremonies used to take place before it was moved to January 20 in 1933. That year is significant to sovereign citizens as it was when the U.S. went off the gold standard, which they take to mean the country had become bankrupt.

 

With guaranteed certainty, Trump will not be sworn back into the White House next month. In fact, none of QAnon's predictions, the very first one being Hillary Clinton would be arrested in August 2017, have come true.

 

For QAnon, Trump losing the election then failing to fulfill the long-awaited prophecy known as "the storm" on January 20 was all part of the ever-changing "plan."

 

When March 4 comes and goes with Biden still president, researchers say this will not deter QAnon, who will instead move onto the next prediction to give them hope.

The Qcumbers will just move the goal posts on March 5th.  If they held on beyond Inauguration Day, some random day in March is easy by comparison.

You would think they’d push their ‘predictions’ a little further out, y’know?  On the bright side, maybe more people trickle away from this dangerous wackiness with each failed prediction/belief.

Don't want to push them too far out because then the cult might start to distance and lose belief/interest over time. Need to keep the predictions at least somewhat immediate to keep the faithful in line.

Right, because if there's one thing you'd definitely want to do if you were a human trafficker, it would be to publicly out yourself and your criminal enterprise by leaving roses on random cars for no discernible reason whatsoever.

 

Jesus, these people are just out to lunch.

On March 5 Im going on GreatAwakening and starting a thread about the Framers all drinking arsenic Koolaid on April 1. 

 

You need to be a little more subtle.  Since obviously Koolaid wasn't around back then, make up some story about the Framers making a special apple cider that was made including the ground up apple seeds.  (Note:  apple seeds contain cyanide - about 143 seeds are required for a lethal dose*).  

 

 

If you're wondering how I know this, it's because a while back there was a story about some horses in Kentucky got sick from eating too many apples they found on the ground.
