It’s really fucked up and stupid.

So of course it’s going to make its way into the mainstream.

I think it’s Harold from South Park, Kyles dad

It's batshit. The sad thing is people actually believe it. I have a friend, who has fallen into it. She posts this insane stuff, and people try to reason with her but she won't have it.

It's beyond repair, and it will get someone killed.

These are a people that have lost(or never had)all ability to reason or think for themselves.

I’ve also had “friends” who I have on Facebook because ive met at different stages of my life who are into these sort of things including someone who’s was a better friend than just a Facebook friend, I cut them all, I have no shame, you spew bs specifically bs about how trump is great etc, I just unfriend them. Fuck that, I don’t want to hear it. I’ve got no patience for trump supporters, conspiracy theorists, racist people etc. I don’t care if they were long time friends or just people I’ve met once or twice. I will not have any of it! And honestly feels great to unfriend these people. Less garbage I have to read on my feed!

We can probably spot him in the photos proudly brandishing his Q sign.

People that believe this stuff are fucking scary.

The media shouldn't even give these people the light of day.

Don't even acknowledge the idiocy. You're not being fair and balanced by giving a platform to a bunch of crazy kooks who think triangles on a sign is code for pedophilia.

You're right, Headache, but the fact that hundreds of thousands of US voters - voters! - believe this nonsense may effect not only November's elections, but the future and security of this country.

Just read this:

Quote:
Now that it’s clear that what starts on the fringe doesn’t stay there, it is a real concern. QAnon’s lurch from online to off hasn’t manifested only in T-shirted ralliers wielding weird signs. Last week, a “baker” appeared outside Michael Avenatti’s office because Q sent him there. Others have started searching for child sex camps in the desert outside Tucson. A man in an armored truck blocked a bridge near the Hoover Dam demanding the release of a report that Q claimed the government was withholding. He had two guns.
Quote:
The storm QAnon truthers predict will never strike because the conspiracy that obsesses them doesn’t exist. But while they wait for it, they’ll try to whip up the winds, and the rest of us will struggle to find shelter. QAnon is scary because it’s getting bigger, it’s scary because we don’t know how to stop it, and it’s scary because the people behind it won’t be stopped, and, until their illusory storm arrives, they won’t be satisfied.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...=.df0a98af6035

Read this to understand - if possible - why one guy believes all this shit:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.2ee6488b1b3f


BTW, I find it funny that this group is so terrified over pedophilia rings yet they support Roy Moore.

This is pure madness. And all because we had a black man as President for 8 years. America really lost its mind then, or at least half the country did.

There's going to be violence in the near future. Guaranteed the US is headed for an era of home-grown terrorism and even civil war. Just look at how the crowd at Trump's rallies taunts at CNN. Someone in the media is going to get killed. Lots of innocent people are going to be killed. There's no light at the end of this dark tunnel.

I totally sympathize with your overall fears, but at the same time, I have to say, I keep seeing a lot of this attitude among people on the left in general right now and it's very dispiriting. That quote about how "we don't know how to stop it"...well, so let's figure out a way to stop it, then. Or at least fight back against it.

I dunno, I just feel like a lot of people on the left are throwing up their hands and saying, "Well, we're screwed, nothing we can do, this administration's just going to keep on doing what it wants" and I just refuse to accept that fact. I want to hear more people on the left talking about how we can rally and fight back against this shit. I want to hear more suggestions and solutions, more calls to action, more promotion of and talk about up and coming politicians and other leaders who we can work with and support, etc.. Yes, everyone keeps talking about voting in November, and we should absolutely keep pushing that message everywhere we can. But I want to hear what else we can continue to do in the meantime between now and November, as well as what our plans will be post November, whichever way the election plays out (obviously if Democrats are lucky enough to secure Congress, taking down Trump will be a big focus, but it'd be nice to further discuss the other issues we want to tackle as well).

I just think the more we continue to sound defeated and fearful, the more we let these assholes win. And I'm beyond tired of letting them win.

Thanks, Moonlit_Angel. I do agree we need to do a lot more than simply vote in November to change this country. But is there really any hope of changing these people? They are so knee-deep in their beliefs that it would take a lot to change them.

I'm not defeatist about this; I do have some hope. I believe younger people are going to be more centrist and left-leaning than older generations, as well as less racist and less theocratic. So I am hopeful to some degree. But in the meantime, things look scary.

Oh, yeah, I don't expect to change the Trump supporters' minds, no. I agree it would take a LOT, if anything, to finally make them see reason, especially if they're STILL supporting him at this point, so people should just forget about trying to "reach out" to them right now.

I basically just want to hear more discussion among the Democrats, as well as any independents and any more moderate conservatives who also cannot stand this administration, about what all we can do together to fight back against not just Trump himself, but his supporters as well. For instance, many people plan to vote come November, but knowing there's been discussion about election hacking, is there anything we can do (or at least, anything tech-savvy people can do) to help halt or catch any potential hacking issues that may arise? Are there ways we can use social media to help squash alt-right shit like this whole Q mess and things of that sort? Can we put pressure on social media outlets to remove stuff like that? In regards to the kids at the border being drugged, is there something we can do, or organizations we can support, to make the people who allowed that be held accountable and face criminal charges? Things of that sort.

I also fully agree with you on the younger generations. I see a lot of good in their worldview, a lot of energy and determination, and I can't wait to see how they help further shape and improve our world going forward. I hope they turn out in massive numbers this fall.

I do get the fear, though, yeah. Anytime I feel that way, though, I just keep trying to remind myself of all the other horrible stuff this country, and the world at large, for that matter, has survived throughout its history. I just keep thinking, "If people made it through that, we can make it through this." And I think we will . Let's just hope this nightmare ends as soon as humanly possible.

Every rich liberal is in a satanic pedo cult, and they serve human at their secret dinners.

I shit you not, that is these people’s world view. And they grow angrier and angrier every day that Jeff Sessions hasn’t arrested anyone yet.

Which is why I said, someone will get killed.

I rarely get that fearful on the issues you are talking about (I do have other worries that can drive me up the wall).

Still, some of these people are quite scary, and I do believe someone might get killed in relationship to this whole Qanon crap. I

I do wonder if they are more of a subset of Trump supporters, though, rather than the whole bunch.

Listen to Public Radio they have so many different programs that give you information, or stories of people making a difference. It sure helps me!

Definitely corned about tomorrow with a Charlottesville like gathering in Portland, I think.

They’re definitely a subset, just like the white nationalist are a subset. But the problem is, a big chunk of his supporters believe in certain parts of both these subsets, AND they are completely silent about their dangers.
