This is perhaps a bit tangential, but seems a bit broadly applicable to a bunch of Republican issues, very much including QAnon...

When They Fantasize About Killing You, Believe Them

The hyperbolic posturing of Trumpist extremists, repeated often enough, will have deadly consequences.

The trap of US right-wing conservatives is that, for decades, politicians and influencers have told that that
a) it's a real life-or-death, nay, heaven-or-hell situation
and
b) that they can fix it if they get elected

so for everyone who has been indoctrinated to believe this, it must look like
1) things keep on getting worse
and
2) no political solution has managed to reverse course

Right-wingers have left their audience with no other option but to commit violence against the designated enemies - it's Stochastic Terrorism, pure and simple, and even if many right-wingers didn't set out to actually murder their opponents, that's what they are currently supporting - or actually doing.

This is from the twitter. Some "freedom convoy" supporters might actually be QAnon weirdos.

A largish Telegram group devoted to the DC convoys has suddenly changed its name (see image). A few of the members are confused or bemused but most seem to just be rolling with it.

I'm sure they are. I've seen the Q signs on the trucks of some of these scum and on flags at the overpasses for the morons who support them.

Things are going great in the Q universe.

The QAnon Queen Told Followers They Didn’t Need to Pay Bills. It Didn’t End Well. (vice.com)
Quote:
The QAnon Queen of Canada told her followers to stop paying their electricity and water bills because she declared them free. But now the utility companies are calling.
Quote:
Didulo has issued several “royal decrees” on her Telegram page, some regarding utility bills. The critical ones are “Decree 24,” claiming that electricity is now free in Canada; “Decree 15,” which abolishes income tax; and “Decree 23,” which makes water bills illegal. Another decree, number 79, reverts the price of rent, housing, and propane back to 1955 levels. Other decrees issued by Didulo are that critical race theory is illegal in Canada (this was her very first decree, in fact) and that the age of consent was changed to 24—which sparked an outcry from her followers.
Mental illness just wants to be free.

If I were a betting man, I would guess this results in the kind of petty violence you often see in sovcit circles. Some utility worker is going to be assaulted when the cognitive dissonance of having their gas or power shut off for nonpayment causes one of these freaks to short a circuit. Hopefully nobody gets killed.

I don't know if anything like that will happen. Didulo's followers seem fairly passive and low-key. When reality crashes in, they seem to get more confused than violent. Some of her former devotees have gotten pretty angry with her once they've woken up, though.

Stella Immanuel, Q-nut and COVID dis-informationist fave, thinks (snicker) Joe Biden is a demonic clone.

Or something.

Quote:
Brothers and sisters, patriots, we are living in a time when there are two seeds in the world, the other seed is not human. And until we start realizing that we're dealing with creatures that are not human, you keep thinking people like Pelosi and Biden are human. I don't know where they are human selves are. But the Bible says the devil will deceive the people of the world to create these images. So how does this deception take place? What's happening to this seed? Listen, the devil will deceive them — that if you die, you're gonna live forever. We will clone you, download your brain to the internet of things. And then we're going to upload your brain back into that clone and you will live forever. It's a deception.

Queen Didulo's RV got towed and impounded and her followers are smoking some high test, uncut copium. Some are asking why the Queen's many subservient military forces didn't prevent this, others are assuring that having her vehicle impounded is actually a galaxy brain 5d chess move.

Ha ha ha… Lin Wood cones out as not only a Moon landing denier, but also a Flat Earther.

Apparently people are speculating that he’s going for an insanity defense, but I think it’s really a stupidity defense.

Either one is suitable for a Q believer, or anyone else pushing the Big Lie.

Let's arrest the police. What could go wrong?

After hours of stand off, the Canadian Qanon cult’s attempt to do a citizens arrest of the police for “Covid crimes” ends predictably. (reddit.com)

More proof that we're living in the age of stupid.

I have to wonder why Peterborough, a small nothing town in terms of political power attracts so much stupidity and human trash.
I used to live there when it was a fun gateway to the lakes all over Central Ontario. I lived close to the police station too.
Maybe it's the water...

Are there more of them up there? I don't know if crazy people clump together like kitty litter, but it's a theory.

No idea and I simply refuse to find out. I'm not planning a visit anytime soon and shortly I'll be moving to Collins Bay (not the jail) so they will not be in my thoughts too much.

My nephew that lives there says if you stay away from downtown, they are invisible. He is a really big guy so not many will try to stop him from walking where he wants to go.

Roman Dildo is currently pretending to be on the phone with the military arranging for the arrests of those police officers. They are sending air support because she demanded it

This is Canada and the police response to such things is usually very soft and non-confrontational. The Truckers' Protest (qv) shut down Ottawa for something like three weeks before action was taken. Those who were finally arrested are slowly being "processed" by the courts

And no monster blood bath with bodies and burning trucks scattered across the landscape. Given the number of guns seized by the RCMP, there quite some potential for things to go wrong.

She isn't running for reelection either. The politically correct filter is off.

It refreshing to say what people are actually thinking.

The 55-year-old man, who also attended Freedom Convoy protests in Ottawa earlier this year, is now alleging police used excessive force. He said he suffers from a punctured lung and four broken ribs — none of which were, in his words, "part of our plan."

"That's why it's called a peaceful, lawful citizen's arrest. Because we're tired of the tyranny within the corporation of Canada," Claudio said.

Claudio was among three people arrested on Saturday. Peterborough police charged him with two counts of assaulting police.

The province's Special Investigations Unit (SIU) got engaged immediately, as part of its mandate to investigate all violent incidents involving law enforcement. But three days later, a spokesperson with the civilian body said in a statement that Claudio "has ceased co-operation with the SIU investigation."

"The affected person is encouraged to contact the SIU," the statement read.

I'm guessing he realized that the SIU was part of the Elite Pedo Deep State right around the time they asked him for a medical report to corroborate his claim of injuries.

I found this interesting:

"The answers are sort of troubling because we're talking about — this is just a function of human nature," said Joseph Uscinski, a political scientist with the University of Miami.

"Some people have personality traits like high levels of narcissism, or they have very conflictual personality styles in which they can't negotiate things with other people without resorting to conflict," he said. "And that's what drives a lot of this."

"The less comforting story is that some people are just like this," he said, noting generations past have endured conspiracy-minded thinking during the Red Scare, witch hunts and satanic panic.
I've indeed concluded that some people are born idiots, and there's no way to reason them out of it.
