The panic is palpable.
“QAnon feels less whimsical than it used to, and now feels much more streamlined & ready for the mainstream. And more likely to inspire people to commit acts of violence.”
Right, it’s Q that inspires people to riot and committing acts of violence, not the MSM. Sure.
I’ve never paid any attention to QAnon from the first I heard of it back when it was getting started.
I remember hearing (from Kerry Lutz) about it and he was non-committal, but he said something like “this QAnon guy had a bit of a track record at predicting certain events”.
It sounded from that like QAnon was one of these “Deep insiders” on the internet who’s identity had to be kept secret so that they could keep revealing the secrets they had access to from their position. In this, I figured it was no more reliable than the “anonymous sources” who recently revealed that Trump had called military veterans losers.
The media’s coverage of QAnon definitely feels like the complaints of a group that resents someone else taking their own favorite tactics directly to the people to promote something that runs counter to their agenda.
Doesn’t Jim Willie have a super secret source he calls “The Voice”? I like that name better.
They always blame you for the stuff they are neck-deep in doing themselves. They just can’t help it. It is human nature.
- Riots? Check.
- Arson? Check.
- Murder? Check.
- Bail fund for Antifa-BLM troops promoted by Team Harris? Check.
- Get out of Jail Free cards from pre-positioned “prosecutors”? Check.
- Winked-at by local tame officials? Check.
- Troops deployed to combat zones by a well-funded logistics effort? Check.
- Activities covered up by captive media – “mostly peaceful protests”. Check.
But yet it is supposedly posts by some person named “qanon” that is causing the chaos we are seeing in America. Sounds right to me.
Another point, as I have pointed out repeatedly in this forum, there is no organization called Antifa. There are no incorporation papers, no command structure, no board meetings, none of the trappings of a real organization. Antifa is an abbreviation for anti-fascist. So, apparently anyone who shares that belief can be thought of as member in good standing. I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t share that particular belief.
Does Qanon have incorporation papers? What about a command structure? Do they hold regular board meetings? Do they have any of the trappings of a real organization? Frankly, I haven’t sought their legal standing (because proper legal standing isn’t a necessity in my worldview of existence.) It would really surprise me if there were such a legal structure with identifiable people who want to remain anonymous. Don’t you think that people who want to be associated with “Antifa” share the same desire to remain anonymous? Think about it.
If Qanon exists for you, why doesn’t Antifa exist?
Read every q post since day 1 (Oct 28 2017).
After the Vegas shooting, google ‘broke’ and you could no longer do research. Ended up in the underworld of 4chan for the first time in my life because it was the only place I could find the actual videos people had taken at the event and it was the only place where there was a discussion about the numerous inconsistencies.
Well Q showed up. Been fascinated with his/her/they/it’s posts ever since.
As for this article – it’s bunk on many levels. 50% of republicans supporting Q – bs. I don’t know a single person who reads Q posts and I know a lot of republicans. I don’t think the reach is that far and wide by any means – maybe 5%.
Also – Q has never posted about adrenochrome or most of the other things the media is attributing to QAnon nowadays. To me, it’s a similar media fear campaign in the same manner as the fear operation of the rising Covid cases in the UK. Essentially trying to convince us it’s QAnon ‘followers’ who are really the instigators behind the riots.
Unfortunately – some fall for the fear campaign (Doug).

Reminds me of the Mother Jones article that cast Chris as a survivalist whacko who tried to opportunistically change his persona to pass himself off as an infectious disease expert when Covid surfaced.
Surely there is something QAnon was way off about that they could pick on but if instead they just make shit up they are only creating more converts. The shortsightedness amazes me assuming they are sincere about protecting people from bullshit.
I think you are correct. There is no formal organization named Qanon. I think it can most accurately be described as yet another baseless or group of baseless conspiracy theories. Although there is apparently a Q who could theoretically be sued or prosecuted.
Our good Drs. Tedros and Fauci are first in line to be sued. Q will help us. Already is.
Unfortunately, when Chris took the bold step of questioning some of the official narrative, he attracted new members who attribute everything to dark subterranean forces.
Live action online games like Q, were originally created by someone wanting to have fun at the expense of those who just looooovvvee puzzles, cryptic ‘breadcrumbs’ and other absurdities. They took the bait…hook, line, and sinker.
It’s not even stupid. It is so beyond stupid I don’t think there is a proper word for it. But keep up the extremism. It sure serves Peak Prosperity well!!
