A chess board with only one square (white of course) would be too difficult for Qanon believers.

I don't want anyone to die but if people are going to follow that stupid bitch, I'm not too upset by them self-selecting out.

The problem is the collateral damage.

Victoria, Australia had to re-declare a COVID-19 state of emergency this week because of a few selfish dickheads who deliberately ignored basic precautions.

True. It would be better for all if selfish dickheads only associated with other selfish dickheads.

Exactly. Social bubbles & echo chambers. Not exactly friends of open-mindedness and objectivity.
From a purely biological perspective, though, I think to propagate more dickheads, you would need a combination of twats and dickheads.

Qanon conspiracy theorists apparently got a doll from the movie "Trolls 2" taken off the market due to their complaints. The doll features a pad sensor in its crotch area - underneath clothing - to detect when the doll has been sat down, and makes the doll laugh in that case. Qanons and Pizzagaters decided that the pad sensor is actually a button that children are meant to reach under the doll's skirt and deliberately press to make the doll giggle, which is intended to teach them that being molested is fun.

It does, unfortunately. Once Qanon has "opened your eyes" to the global Democrat-run pedophile mega-ring, almost everything you see in the world proves its existence, including alternative explanations which naturally have been planted by the conspirators and must be resisted.

Q-followers are applying their skills at interpreting Scripture to the messages - in both cases, you first decide what you want the message to be, and then find support for it in the text.

It's not a new thing. It's as old as modern conspiracy theories have been.

Even Qanon's very specific claims about elite satanic pedophile rings are just rehashes of the baloney Alex Jones has been bellowing out for years. This is exactly what the Bohemian Grove is supposedly about, for instance.

In fact I'd be willing to bet Alex Jones is more than a little sore that some rando came out of nowhere, ripped off his act wholesale, and has managed to turn it into this huge revitalized thing that makes international headlines, and all completely without Jones' input or involvement.

I'm in agreement here, apart form a small nitpick of the highlighted.
I thought the whole point of QAnus was the deliberate vagueness, so that the Qlingons can interpret the droppings in any way they please.
I have asked Bubba if QAnus has actually named any paedophile Satanists, or whether Trump has exposed any of these supposed cliques, but I have not had an answer.
Has this happened yet?

Last night I took a little trip down the rabbit hole and viewed part of (couldn't stomach watching the whole thing) a yt video on Tom Hanks as pedo sex trafficker.

Proof was non-existent, but he did work at Pixar (little boys walk in the Pixar building and don't come out!) and has been honored with Greek citizenship (pedo is a disability!) so that's evidently proof enough in Qanonlandistan.

Of course he's a pedophile. Why else would he have stayed married for so long, raising seemingly decent children, when he could have spent the last 30 years banging 18- to 20-year-old starlets and models? The evidence is right there in front of your face.

Qanon's obsession with "adrenochrome", an imaginary drug Democrat elites harvest from children's blood

Quote:
For conspiracy theorists, adrenochrome represents a mystical psychedelic favored by the global elites for drug-crazed satanic rites, derived from torturing children to harvest their oxidized hormonal fear—a kind of real-life staging of the Pixar movie Monsters, Inc. “QAnon also likes to say that Monsters, Inc. is Hollywood telling on itself,” says QAnon researcher Mike Rains, “because the plot of scaring kids to get energy is what they really do.”

The highest-profile adrenochrome incident took place in 2018, when Google CEO Sundar Pichai was questioned by the House Judiciary Committee about a conspiracy called “Frazzledrip.” (“Heard of Frazzledrip?” reads one comment on The Sisters of Mercy song.) The crackpot theory involved a mythical video, supposedly squirreled away on Anthony Weiner’s laptop, that if leaked, would show Hillary Clinton and her one-time aide Huma Abedin performing a satanic sacrifice in which they slurped a child’s blood while wearing masks carved from the skin of her face.

Code-named “Frazzledrip,” the video was supposed to depict an adrenochrome “harvest.” It never materialized. But the drug has since become a common reference in conspiracies of the far right. In the past year, the compound has been name-checked by German soul singer Xavier Naidoo, right-wing evangelical and failed congressional candidate Dave Daubenmire, and ex-tabloid writer-turned-QAnon conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin.

“There’s a lot of anons [QAnon adherents] that believe the white hats tainted the elite’s adrenochrome supply with the coronavirus, and that’s why so many members of the elite are getting the coronavirus,” Crokin said in a YouTube video from March, reported by Right Wing Watch. “Adrenochrome is a drug that the elites love. It comes from children. The drug is extracted from the pituitary gland of tortured children. It’s sold on the black market. It’s the drug of the elites. It is their favorite drug. It is beyond evil. It is demonic. It is so sick. So there is a theory that the white hats tainted the adrenochrome supply with the coronavirus.”

Who in their right mind would believe that tens of thousands of children are abused and killed and their blood consumed by politicians and movie stars for kicks and that Donald Trump, of all people, is the saviour who'll unmask and stop them all?

Oh, right. They're not in their right minds. They should all be in mental institutions.

I thought we had become sufficiently educated to not fall for these ridiculous demonisations now, but it's clear that I was wrong.

Thank you for bringing this up. An argument certainly can be made that the conspiracy of Democrat elites using children's blood as a drug during Satanic rituals is a modern spin on the very old Jewish blood libel, which held that Jews needed the blood of Christian children for certain rituals or as an ingredient in religiously-significant foods.

It's gotten positively X-Files-ish. For instance: I do not know what Qanon's current view on the coronavirus is - that is to say, whether along with the rest of the MAGA set they believe it's a hoax entirely or at least being deliberately overstated to harm Trump. However, in the early days, they had quite a different mindset. I distinctly remember in April sometime reading that Qanon's position was that the coronavirus was made up by Trump to keep people indoors while the US military's "pedophile task force" conducted a secret operation to rescue thousands of "mole children" from underground bases, most notably beneath New York's Central Park, on Trump's orders. The tent hospital set up on Central Park during this period was actually secretly housing these rescued children, not COVID victims; and the USNS Comfort was secretly in New York to receive and treat them. The whole affair had to be kept out of the public eye because these children had been born and raised completely underground to be sex slaves and of course to be harvested for "adrenochrome", and as a result many of them were heavily deformed and blind, and the sight of them was feared might make normal people go insane, as supposedly many soldiers who participated in the raids and rescues developed severe psychological problems.

I promise you I'm not making any of this up or exaggerating in the least, and I genuinely wish I had submitted the relevant links and social media posts here at the time.

Coincidentally, this piece which came out today briefly mentions the "mole children" I described last night. However it is mainly about how the Qanon delusion has been leading some parents who have lost custody of their children for whatever reason, to kidnap or attempt to kidnap those children "back" from the relatives or foster parents that CPS has placed them with.

The incident described at the beginning of the article happened in June, with the man livestreaming from his vehicle in the middle of a police chase with his five children in the car, claiming that his wife and 13-year-old daughter were secretly members of the pedophile conspiracy.

I'm pretty sure the adrenechrome nonsense has been posted here, and I know I've linked to the mole childredn crapola.

More Q-nuttery.
Quote:
QAnon conspiracy theorist Alpalus Slyman pushed his Honda Odyssey past 110 mph while his five children screamed in the back of the minivan and police officers from two states pursued him down the highway.

“Donald Trump, I need a miracle or something,” Slyman, a 29-year-old Boston man, said during his June 11 chase across Massachusetts and New Hampshire, in remarks captured on a livestream.

“QAnon, help me. QAnon, help me!”

It’s not clear what set off the police chase, but Slyman appears to have been convinced by QAnon theories that the government was out to kidnap his children. Inspired by videos he had watched online, Slyman warned his children during the chase that the police were coming to abduct them—or maybe just shoot them in a staged killing. In return, they begged him to pull over. His daughter even tried to grab the wheel of the minivan and drive it off the road after he accused her and his wife, who had dived out of the vehicle at the start of the chase, of being agents of the nefarious cabal that QAnon believers say controls the world.

“They want to make us crazy,” Slyman said, “but I’m not crazy. My wife and my daughter were a part of it.”
Dangerous, criminal morons.

Quote:
New Hampshire police blew out Slyman’s tires, but he kept going. The chase only ended when Slyman crashed into a police cruiser, then drove his minivan into a tree. Slyman was arrested, and now faces three felony counts in New Hampshire. His five children were unharmed.
Like anti-maskers, these nutbars are willing to take others with them. I sure hope this dimwit never gets near those kids again.

Yup. And both hospital ships had their 15 minutes of Q fame the week the engineer or railyard worker tried to get his loco to roll a couple hundred yards over gravel and dirt and smash the one in San Diego. No soup for him.

Considering the fact that Trump's P. T. Barnum gene drives him to publically pat himself on the back at every opportunity, the idea that kids were being rescued by the thousands on his orders and he's keeping quiet about it is another fantastically false aspect of the Q-pack narrative.

Trump is a strategic master playing 4D chess with the world, he wants you to think he's a petulant vindictive narcissistic blowhard for reasons that are incomprehensible to mere mortals. It's all part of the long game he's playing.

When his true masterplan is revealed you'll all feel foolish when you realise that he's been playing us all for fools while he secretly worked his magic behind the scenes and has saved the world.

I can't quite remember what it is he's saving the world from, but I assure you it's going to happen any day soon.

It's more than that. They are nutjobs who are having their beliefs supported by the people we would expect to be their voice of reason. Can you imagine if McCain had someone at a rally ask him about Obama's satanic pedophile ring? He'd, politely explain that Obama was a nice and decent man with whom he had disagreements about policy. Romney would likely do the same. Now, the president gets asked about Q and moves on to the next question. Better yet, a former national security advisor took the Q pledge. They are nutjobs without a restraining influence.

At least there's a sign of GOP pushback against the QAnon BS, though it's hard to say what difference it will make.

Rep. Kinzinger: ‘It’s time’ for leaders to disavow QAnon [Politico]
Quote:
Rep. Adam Kinzinger on Sunday emphasized the importance of President Donald Trump and other leaders calling out QAnon — a set of far-right conspiracy theories that allege the existence of a “deep state” against Trump.

The Illinois Republican, who posted a video on YouTube explaining QAnon on Sunday morning, said it’s time for other lawmakers to definitively and emphatically denounce the theories.

However, in the early days, they had quite a different mindset. I distinctly remember in April sometime reading that Qanon's position was that the coronavirus was made up by Trump to keep people indoors while the US military's "pedophile task force" conducted a secret operation to rescue thousands of "mole children" from underground bases, most notably beneath New York's Central Park, on Trump's orders. The tent hospital set up on Central Park during this period was actually secretly housing these rescued children, not COVID victims; and the USNS Comfort was secretly in New York to receive and treat them. The whole affair had to be kept out of the public eye because these children had been born and raised completely underground to be sex slaves and of course to be harvested for "adrenochrome", and as a result many of them were heavily deformed and blind, and the sight of them was feared might make normal people go insane, as supposedly many soldiers who participated in the raids and rescues developed severe psychological problems.

I promise you I'm not making any of this up or exaggerating in the least, and I genuinely wish I had submitted the relevant links and social media posts here at the time.
Holy ****.

I started the original thread.

I foresaw this exponential rise of this stupid theory.

Somehow it tapped into its adherents a deep sense of belonging to something, where they had never really belonged before.

It is why I tried to debunk and counter it early on, but it was like playing whack a mole. Just been watching ever since.

Suppose last year there was a huge kerfuffle of a national hoax involving some in congress, state dept, media, FBI, private covert intel providers, CIA, etc.

Could it fly without some fancy hidden sub-architecture under the hood.?

Maybe someone thought to look for that, or maybe these inside operatives decided to become whistleblowers.

We will have to get busy debunking this one, or we are screwed.

Calling all Topic Masters.! Code Red. This is no drill.

Mostly hidden underlying tech architecture of the big hoax, explained by insiders.

Intel/tech private contractors hired to manage, among others, the state dept's digital operations.

Gripping investigative reporting, has already lead to an arrest.

I can tell by the TORE in the link that Bubba has seen or heard about Millie weaver’s “documentary.” Millie Weaver got arrested for some domestic incident over the weekend and used it to publicize her garbage documentary.


She works for info wars and goes by the nickname rainbow snatch.

Well obviously all these separate events can, and do fly on their own. They have done so in the past and will do so in the future.
