OMG! QAnon!
« on: September 09, 2020, 08:01:26 PM »
I spent 2 or 3 hours talking to (listening to, mostly) my step daughter. Somewhere over the past 4 years, she came to the Trump train, but she did so by way of QAnon. She was explaining what it's all about and my head was spinning. Portals? Tunnels? People imprisoned in Gitmo? But they're not really people, they're clones? We never landed on the moon? I never could grasp what she was telling me. It was like a never-ending episode of "Twilight Zone." Can someone explain this philosophy in simple terms so I can understand what it's about.

QAnon is a cult. I find it hard to believe anyone actually believes the various conspiracy theories, although QAnon disciples claim to believe them.

To me it looks a lot like an online video game in which believing the conspiracies is just part of the game, so the followers of Q believe because it is part of belonging.  They revel in deciphering the coded messages and speaking their special lingo.  And the more people in the mainstream raise alarm bells about them, the more it feeds their frenzy.

Don't ever try to have a logical argument with a Q aficionado. Their affinity to Q is greater than their affinity to family, community, church or anything else.

All that said, I do love the way QAnon drives liberals crazy, so it does have that going for it.

On many topics and/or subjects there is often enough truth to give (some) enough credence to what these people claim, to be irrefutable truth. To them.  People see what they want to see. They hear what they want to hear.

Take the variations that can be found in eyewitness accounts.

Thanks, @massadvj . I thought (hoped?) that at some point she was going to come clean and say she'd been punking me. She's actually a very smart woman, yet she's totally sold on this stuff. It was troubling to hear her go on about it. It was one rabbit hole after another, and every so often I could glimpse something real and true. Then it was back to another rabbit hole. The conversation became very exhausting. I feel sorry for her husband. (But only partially because he's a CNN addict.)

I have a 70 yr old cousin, that follows "Judge Anna von Reitz," and a group called "American States Assembly"

https://theamericanstatesassembly.net/

He has an excuse for her not being a judge, hoe the world is being run by the Vatican, the Queen of England, etc.

I am a fan of BeforeItsNews... I skitter my fingers across the belly of the tinfoil hat crowd. Conspiracies DO exist. But there has to be a line somewhere, and for me that would be PROOF...

It could be worse.  At least she will vote for Trump, who according to QAnon is playing 3-dimensional chess against the deep state.  She could be a Bernie Sanders socialist.  It seems there is no shortage of delusional people on the right or the left.

@AllThatJazzZ

This is important,so listen closely. Do NOT ask her any questions or try to confuse her further in any way until AFTER the election!

I thought it was more like baffling you with their dazzling bullshit.

Simple.  Think for yourself and research for yourself.  Pick a person or an issue and start researching. Dig deeper than Wiki! LOL   Don't take anyone's word for it.
Check out the Epstein Files, Podesta Files, The FBI Files, etc.  There is a  surprising amount of public info out there.   :shrug:

@sneakypete

 :rolling: I literally laughed out loud, and I really needed that release. I assure you that I won't do anything to change her mind between now and Nov. 3. It won't help that much because she lives in California. In fact, she used to be part of the problem, but at least she's seen the error of her ways.

The only "conspiracy" I put any stock in is... the communist one to take over America.

All the rest recede into nothingness by comparison...

Right. It isn't a "conspiracy" when it is the truth.

I'm not into videos.  I watched the first 20 minutes and saw nothing I don't already know from other sources.  Mockingbird is real.  Buzz words drop about 4:30 in the morning.  Following along thru the day, you will hear those chosen buzz words repeated, no matter what news and commentary stations you check out.

I'm more into reading.  The Page - Strzok emails that were released are telling.  Often info is corroborated with Wikileaks and some pieces fit in via other venues.

Like I said, research for yourself.  FBI Files, Clinton emails, government documents.  The deeper you dig, the clearer the picture becomes.

The tunnels are real.  Study the subject.  The Denver Airport is a good place to start. 

Gitmo is real.  We've watched planes fly there via air traffic controllers who post the ABS system streaming real time screens.  If you see earlier pictures of Guantanamo, then find recent satellite shots, you will see that the base has tripled in size.

We watched AF1 leave DC and head west on the way to the Korean Summit.  We watched another unmarked plane leave DC about 10 minutes later.  It headed north then east over the poles, then south to So. Korea.  POTUS was on the second plane. We watched a missile try to take out AF1 over the Pacific.  It was taken out by an anti-aircraft missile.  It appeared to have come from the Whidbey Naval Base off Washington state.  This info all came via satellite relay.  If you recall, POTUS looked a bit disturbed when he was entering the building in Korea.  He was disturbed because of the attack on AF1. (Incidentally, there was a second AF1 missile attack but I can't remember where or when  that occured.  AF jets took that missile down.)

I'm not certain what she means by portals.  I'll have to look into that.
