This is an excellent breakdown of how QAnon works:

https://medium.com/curiouserinstitut...n-580972548be5

Quote:
QAnon grows on the wild misinterpretation of random data, presented in a suggestive fashion in a milieu designed to help the users come to the intended misunderstanding. Maybe “guided apophenia” is a better phrase. Guided because the puppet masters are directly involved in hinting about the desired conclusions. They have pre-seeded the conclusions. They are constantly getting the player lost by pointing out unrelated random events and creating a meaning for them that fits the propaganda message Q is delivering.
There is no reality here. No actual solution in the real world. Instead, this is a breadcrumb trail AWAY from reality. Away from actual solutions and towards a dangerous psychological rush. It works very well because when you “figure it out yourself” you own it. You experience the thrill of discovery, the excitement of the rabbit hole, the acceptance of a community that loves and respects you. Because you were convinced to “connect the dots yourself” you can see the absolute logic of it. This is the conclusion you arrived at. More about this later.

It really appears to be the go-to defense that's being reported for insurrectionists. "The door was open when I got there, so I assumed it was okay to go inside".

Most of these individuals' own social media posts during the incident give away the lie that they were unaware the Capitol was violently breached. "I was just a freelance journalist covering the aftermath" is probably not going very far in court.

Trump made a comment at a rally in the middle of his term,

From an acquaintance's collection:



Quote:
It appears someone is making a hastily arranged documentary on Q-Anon.

Q-Anon is not organic. It's (ex) military intelligence telling stories that (we know now) do not come true.

However, Trump made a comment at a rally in the middle of his term, that drove the media crazy. He said, with pregnant pauses, that he might stay 9yrs, or 13yrs or 17yrs.

Did anyone catch that ? 9-13-17

So, what did Trump say ?

9 = I
13 = M
17 = Q

9-13-17 random numbers. The number of years he could never be president. In the process of demonizing and problematizing this claim to stay beyond two terms - nobody figured it out.

Or, maybe it's a sign of the times that those who are studying private communication across public channels are not telegenic teleprompter-readers.

Yeah, I don't recall those numbers. 8, 12 and "whatever" or some such but not "17".
Anyway, link the vid and I'll believe he said it. Not the coded numerology adjacent crap though.

Taco Tuesday sounds a whole lot more appetizing than the rapidly approaching Crow Wednesday, although it is highly doubtful that Q-balls will have the intellectual honesty to hazard even a reluctant taste of that particular corvus.*


*Originally typed corvid; corvus + covid = corvid?

Weird.

By the way, Resume, corvid is the adjective relating to crows and similar birds. It’s a good word.

This article profiling a ‘Q’ cultist sums up the range of possible responses to the imminent final failure of their flabby deity:

Quote:
This week, when Mr. Biden becomes president and Mr. Trump leaves the White House, it will be a huge blow to QAnon’s core mythology, and it may force some believers to acknowledge that they’ve been lied to. Many will cope by spinning the development as a win, or saying it proves that Mr. Trump is playing the long game. Others will quietly ditch Q and transfer their enthusiasm to a new conspiracy theory. A few might be jolted back to reality.
A few. Not many of them will admit they were taken in by a particularly insipid metastasized 4chan troll, monetized by a series of cynical politicians who saw their dedicated gullibility glowing like a neon sign.

It’s still funny to look back at the idiotic core premise: that a Q clearance would give this pretend insider access to the pretend secrets he pretended to know. The Q dolts swallowed that one, hook, line, and sinker, without having the faintest glimmering how manifestly stupid that was, or bothering to spend a few minutes Googling and thinking why.

It’s less funny to contemplate the damage this kind of determined stupidity is doing to American democracy, and the lives this vicious yet infantile fantasy has ruined and even ended.

If one of your cult gets shot in the neck on the specious notion that Diaper Don had their back, and you still maintain such a belief, not much else is going to adjust your course to a setting of objective reality this way >. We recall examples of divorce and suicide due to belief in this nonsense and think, Gee, what are these people thinking? The problem is they are not: not rationally, not reasonably, not critically. It may be innate to their psyche.

There are far too many of them for comfort.

An acquaintance of mine related this anecdote :

Quote:
I used to work with a guy who had to get a Top Secret clearance for an old job of his that involved fulfilling prescription drug orders to the military. As he summarized:

What people think a Top Secret clearance gives access to: info about Area 51, new weapons, answers about long speculated conspiracy theories, the identities of the spies in both the US and elsewhere.

What a Top Secret clearance actually gives access to: the address to ship some retired general his Viagra.
So much for “Q Clearance.”

Pretty much. Clearance level is not the requirement to access classified info. The driving force and over-whelming control on classified info is “need-to-know”. People have this idea that a clearance lets you access information; that’s exactly backwards. The information you need access to in order to do your job is what determines the clearance level you have to get.

Q has the security clearance of a Russian hack huddled in an unheated carrel in Minsk, sipping vodka, biting a raw onion, and making up stupid stories believed by gullible Americans.

It's worse than that. Yes, pretty much everything is compartmented, codeword classified. Regardless your level of clearance, you still need to demonstrate need-to-know. But when they say Q clearance is "equivalent" to some particular classification, all that means is that it takes about the same amount of effort, scrutiny, or other qualifications to get one. It really has no use or meaning outside the U.S. Dept. of Energy. It has absolutely nothing to do with domestic or foreign surveillance, law enforcement, or anything else. If you walked into, say, the CIA and flashed your Q credentials and expected anything beyond the public tour, they would just laugh at you.

Moreover, Dept. of Energy classifications differ fundamentally from military or intelligence classifications in that you have the clearance because you're creating something that's to be kept secret. It's almost never about discovering what someone else is doing and not letting them know you know.

QAnon stuff reads like bad spy novels. Like really bad spy novels. Like Tom Clancy Op-Center fanfics written by seventh graders.

A reasonable person might suspect that Jim Watkins enabling 4Chan paedophile downloads AND being the "Q" in Qanon may be quite intentional.

To be fair to the lunatic racist in clown makeup (which is not a sentence I ever thought I would type), those are very much not the same symbols. The Asartu symbol is based, I believe, on interlocking horn patterns and/or celtic cross work from the pre-Christian age.

The Paedophile symbol was used in an episode of Law and Order SVU I saw recently, I had no idea it was meant to be real.

You are 100% correct. Variations of that symbol can be found all through history with different intentions or just for art's sake.

It was simply entertaining that Bubba, a Qanon cult member told us that Qanon revealed it was only used by paedophiles, while the horned clown, another Qanon cult member, had the same symbol unaware what Bubba had claimed.

It simply shows that no one person has any control over the Qanon propaganda nonsense.

It all went off without a hitch, but when no one was looking, everyone was instantly digitised and sent into the matrix, which has substituted a perfect representation of the world a split second before the great upheaval, and you can't tell they in fact, won the revolution.

Meanwhile, all the true Q believers are stuck in a world populated only by them, since everyone else is now in the matrix, and they all starve too death when the global supply of Hot Pockets runs out.

The end?

Bubba? Can you send us a ping so we know you can still respond?

Jim Watkins AKA "Q" from Qanon, was living in the Philippines on a farm for 15 years, in the same area Muslim extremist groups were desperately trying to recruit returning middle East ISIS fighters, five to seven years ago, returning after the collapse of ISIS, and I want to ask you something. It's not about Philippine child pornography. Watkins went back to the USA in late 2020 but has recently disappeared. The Philippines has recently cancelled his citizenship application.

Was Qanon a fuzzy Philippine sub ISIS "thing" by a small Philippine Muslim extremist group trying to cause disharmony in the USA as revenge?

Where is Jim Watkins?

The very first ‘Q’ post, 10/28/2017:

“HRC extradition already in motion effective yesterday with several countries in case of cross border run. Passport approved to be flagged effective 10/30 @ 12:01am. Expect massive riots organized in defiance and others fleeing the US to occur. US M's will conduct the operation while NG activated. Proof check: Locate a NG member and ask if activated for duty 10/30 across most major cities.”

None of that happened.

And yet, an insipid 4chan troll has still managed to get several people killed and ruined many other lives, families, and friendships.

Last Q post, as far as I can tell, was DEC 08.

Q cranks are in crisis and their god is absent. That's a shame.

What’s with the “Sorry” board game piece horned man has inked on his gut? Is that supposed to mean something?

I think it might be the handle of a knife/sword tattoo that, thankfully, we can't see the rest of. It seems like I'd seen something posted elsewhere identifying what all his visible tattoos could mean. But honestly, given all that's been posted about this, and my lack of sleep for other reasons, some of it's all starting to blur together at this point.

Trump has to wait for Biden to attempt the fraudulent inauguration. Then all the Dems and RINOs will be rounded up. /s
