I see to my annoyance that this USAian Q nonsense is turning up in civilised countries.

On Saturday we had a "protest" by the Usual Suspects (including the Mad Dentist and son) against, well everything; lockdown restrictions., masks, vaccines, the usual bollocks.
Present were a pair of nutters claiming that nine thousand people went missing in Ireland last year and that most of these, and especially babies, were being killed and harvested for "adrenochrome" to keep RTÉ celebrities "looking young"2.
The corpses were buried under the new National Children’s Hospital3.
The two were wearing matching hoodies emblazoned with a slogan: "RTE sold there[sic] souls"4.



1. Though surprisingly sans the GoD squad. Maybe they weren't invited, or were preparing (badly) for their day in court.

2. Obviously not working too well.

3. Which might speed construction.

4. And yet people still oppose my plan for mandatory floggings for public typographical errors...

Well, our fearless leader wanted us to become an exporting nation again, so stop complaining.* Our sold gold stupidity is top of the line. Beautiful, perfect even.

(CNN) - Information provided by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security warns of increased chatter among extremists, including members of the Three Percenters extremist group, discussing possible plots against the Capitol on March 4, a date that conspiracy theorists have focused on, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Classist drivel.

Take a hard look at the people that raided the capitol on Jan 6. Do they look poor to you?

People you would think would be grateful and loyal to their country, engaged in seditious conspiracy and betrayed their nation by attacking Congress on January Sixth. The Trump hotel in DC did a record on in-room dining on the 5th and 6th. We can't dismiss the enemy as just poor whites. Successful people also attacked our values and way of life that day. No one living in a trailer park ordered room service in Trump's hotel that night.

It's worth studying how people with everything became so disloyal over the last five years.

The petite bourgeoisie have traditionally been the class of people most enthusiastic about fascistic systems.

You'd think so, but perhaps it's because you're actually thinking and actually concerned about truth.

The people in question have been brought up on the belief that they and their kind are what makes America great, catechised on the exceptionalist myth by the false history of their schools and their leaders, and now their chosen leader has inflamed them with easy lies: that their dominance, the gift of God himself, is threatened by invaders and freeloaders and imposters, literally cheaters and thieves, followers of false gods who threaten not only their deserved gains, but their very cultural identity. They are loyal. Its just that it's to a lie.

His mother seems to be nearly as kooky as him. Also interviewed:

A lot of evasiveness and downplaying the severity of his crimes, and ultimately it comes down to that they think the election was stolen, so it was ok to attack the Capitol.

He went out tiger democrat hunting with his elephant and gun.
In case of accidents he always took his mom.

If the Q folks believe that March 4 is the proper and legitimate date for a presidential inauguration, how do they feel about Donald Trump's inauguration on January 20, 2017?

Hey, Qanon dolts: your infantile fantasy is still just that; and you’re still an ignominious mob of serfs and goose-steppers.

You’re also as un-American and un-Christian and just plain aggressively stupid as they come.
