Q-sheep fail yet again on their prediction that JFK JR. would emerge from the shadows today, May 29, 2020. But have no fear, they still bleat on.

I don’t think we’re going to see #JFKJR until the #RNC2020 Convention. Surprise keynote speaker? Maybe he will introduce

? #trumpcard! #MAGA2020Landslide #KAG2020 #TheGreatAwakening #WWG1WGA
Bah-bah-bah.

Bwahhahhahhahhah.


ETA: I should confess here that I was incorrect in my characterization of Q-nuts as Unsinkable Rubber Ducks. What they are in essence is Forever Fleece-able Sheep.

It is obviously an attempt to by Trump and his acolytes to limit speech he doesn't like in the guise of an anti-censorship Executive Order. The constitutionality of this is very, very dubious.

Why did Trump do this? Well because one of the platforms had the unmitigated gall to say one of the statements of the most holy and divine Trump was basically a lie. Trump's little fee - fees were hurt so he came out with this piece of crud. But then it is pare for the course for Authoritarians to phrase attacks on freedom has defences of freedom. (See Putin). But then Trump seems to like Authoritarian jerks and quite obviously admires Putin, kleptocratic ruler of Russia, murderer and former KGB boss. Of course only the most foolish don't know that Putin helped Trump win in 2016, collusion or not. (We will have a better idea when the full Mueller Report is released. If Trump has nothing to hide he should release it.)

And of course Trump has through his tweets etc., made it abundantly clear that he is stunningly thin skinned and absolutely incensed by criticism of any kind. So yeah I think the idea of censorship is something that appeals to him.

What also amuses me is that anyone thinks that Trump is in any sense an outsider. Trump is a member of the elite and has since his election done many things to increase the wealth etc., of the elite he is a member of. He is a faux populist of the worst kind and outside of the USA a laughing stock.

He would be one inside it too, except it's beyond being a laughing matter for us.

I'm sorry but I have to reject that. It is just wrong all around.

I'm sorry but I have to reject Qanon. It is just stupid all around.

(Now I have a canned response for this thread, which will help me give it all the effort it deserves.)

Qanon is as stupid and wrong as flat earth. All the effort needed to respond to either is simply "No, you're wrong."

That's it.
