And that Biden would not be allowed to enter the Whitehouse. And that the military would turn on Biden and arrest him.
And a ton of other Qplops that never happened.

Given this truck of fail, one might expect that a rational person would question their nutty beliefs.

Nope. The brand spanky new date is March 7th. When that fails there will inevitably be yet another revised date. Rinse, lather, repeat.

What is fascinating about it is the sheer number of Q-nuts attempting to rationalise the failure. Sure, some have given up. Some are in despair about the abject failure. But there is a cohort that make up any old nonsense to keep the delusion going.

Wrong 1960's epic.

Meanwhile, rather than a psyop, Q was likely originally a troll having a bit of fun. The reactions to his posts likely stimulated more, as such things do, and it grew from there, with financial gain quickly being added to the driving forces.

To treat it as a psyop likely is more palatable for those who believed it, though, given that that triggers a number of the same factors that got the believers to fall for it in the first place.

The Oregon Republican party has falsely claimed in a resolution that there is “growing evidence” that the 6 January attack on the US Capitol by a pro-Trump mob was “a ‘false flag’ operation”.

The resolution, which was published on 19 January and was endorsed by the executive committee of the state Republican party, suggested that the storming of the capitol by Trump supporters was an orchestrated conspiracy “designed to discredit President Trump, his supporters and all conservative Republicans,” and to create a “sham motivation” to impeach the former president.

It will always be an embarrassment that David Icke was born and brought up in the same city as me, Leicester, and lived only a few miles away.

Took the bait, I see.


For the record, back then you wrongly assumed I said that. Then you went searching for proof quotes, and came up empty handed.

What I had said was that presidential candidates perhaps should get dna testing. That was regarding health threats.

Now it seems you 'forgot' the truth.

If a Presidential candidate can't be forced to hand over his tax returns then DNA is certainly off the table.

Then he mumbled 'salute the marines' as he walked past them with out saluting, as if he was repeating what he hears in his earpiece.

So let's get this right.

1) You have left the Q-Anon cult and joined the David Icke cult.

2) You now claim the queen is a lizard shape-shifter and all politicians must have blood tests to prove they are human.

Do you agree with David Icke that the lizard shape-shifters were controlling Donald Trump?

David Icke is mentally ill.

He literally believes the Queen and the British Royal family are shape shifting lizards, amongst other rubbish.

Its quite sad, really.

Not surprising that Bubba would move on from failed Q nutter prophecies to another nutter, seeing how utterly credulous he is.

Bubba never saw a conspiracy theory, no matter how laughably idiotic, that he didn't believe..

Are there legitimate, American sources? The only reference I found were Trump supporting sites and everyone knows their kind lack integrity. Trump supporters don't share our American values and just can't be trusted.

The clues were there all along with Icke: I mean, someone from Leicester going to play for Coventry City is the start of a slippery slope. Going to either Derby County or one of the Nottingham clubs would have been more obvious, but mebbe he had some good professional help in those days...

The "salute the Marines" thing is like that idiocy from a few years ago, when Obama and his wife were watching a flag-folding ceremony, and the RWers got some lip-readers to claim that Michelle said "all that for a damn flag," when what she actually (probably) said was "it's amazing how they fold that flag." (Lip readers were needed because the video was taken from a distance that meant you couldn't hear what she said at all) It couldn't be proven either way, but the righties predictably went into full pearl-clutching mode over the interpretation that let them do so.

Kind of the same thing here. Here's the video-

I AGREE


It's at around 0:09 seconds; to me, it sounds like he says "good looking Marines." But the CT morons, of course, will hear what they need to.
