if we're going to do this much Q stuff, maybe another thread for it?

Yeah, that was a fine op-ed.

I'm a little baffled by all the cheering on of Empire that's happening here and elsewhere on the internet, though, so I'm peacing out for now.

xpost - I mean, fair, but, unfortunately, as recently as two weeks ago, the "Q stuff" was inextricably and dangerously tied to politics, so it's kinda hard to avoid. I think right now there's just a joy in watching some absolutely terrifying and dangerous people lose their shit and identity.

Q started as tangentially related to US Politics and contributed to the (probably temporary) demise of a major political party, but i would guess that it will continue to morph and glom onto something else, post 1/20/21. rebranding, new topic, new conspiracies. many of the original followers shaved off, maybe, as they realize that the content of their daily lives is a practical joke gone cosmically wrong, but also a lot of fresh new Q blood as every single event that happens in the world features a splinter conspiracy theory that proffers to offer an explanation for why the things that we see are not real, and the things that seem like absurd jokes are the true light

As I mentioned in the other thread, I feel like there needs to be a government-run 'Were you or a loved one sucked into the Q conspiracy? Call 1-800-NO-MORE-Q now!' ad running during every commercial break on TV for the next little while. We have to live amongst these people, I'd be willing to part with a little tax money towards an effort to make them slightly less frothingly insane.

While Biden took the oath, one top post on a QAnon forum read: “I don’t think this is supposed to happen” and wondered, “How long does it take the fed to run up the stairs and arrest him?"

Other users became immediately dejected, realizing their dreams of a bloody coup were not going to take place.

nickn, Thursday, 4 March 2021 00:18 (yesterday) link

it just seems to me like March 4th is a big deal to the magical-thinking Q believers, the day when the scales fall from everyone's eyes, we realize that the US hasn't been a country since 1871, the military mobilizes, etc. Jan 6 was supposed to be a day when Congress could take a specific action and fix the stolen election, and there was a certain bonkers logic to the idea that a mobilization of people would push Congress to do what they wanted. But nothing election-related is actually happening tomorrow, so what's going to be the spark?

Looking at the big publicly visible Q forum they seem pretty doubtful that anything will happen.

JoeStork, Thursday, 4 March 2021 00:32 (yesterday) link

Mostly likely a few grumpy old dudes in mossy oak and MAGA caps, loitering in front of state capitol buildings... they couldn't get the time off work to drive to D.C.

Andy the Grasshopper, Thursday, 4 March 2021 00:39 (yesterday) link

Yeah, without a big focus like "Mike Pence can turn this around", it'll diffuse, people will find their own deadlines or slow processes for realising that nothing is happening - some might realise that nothing is happening others, will get back to what they see as the great work. A quote from the forums:

If we're looking at anything being done behind the scenes to act as countermeasures, it seems likely that they will continue to be covert and unannounced to the greater public. Meaning soft moves, not hard ones. If you think about it, without controlling dissemination of information across the majority of the popular platforms, narrative positioning and hence moving the population to the much vaunted 'military tribunals' is a logical and practical impossibility. If you took over the major airwaves and showed the greater population what their rulers truly were, to try and get support for hard actions, you'd be effectively playing into the enemy's hands of dividing the country and perhaps irreparably so. It is likely not a campaign of in your face confrontation, but the years of positioning to levers of power that you're looking at, that is assuming, anything is being done at all.

For our part, the answer is clear, people have to carry on with their lives as best they can and create the country they want for themselves and their children, as best they can.

I mean there will definitely be a problem where there's a bunch of people who felt like the system was in some way representing them, and now don't (and have further "evidence" that the system is broken and invalid), and they're heavily armed and belligerent. And Q is serving as a plank in the ramshackle platform that supports anti-vax, anti-mask, that's not good - one of the Wins of the Day yesterday was Texas governor Abbott lifting coronavirus restrictions.

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 4 March 2021 09:20 (yesterday) link

it started off with Q making the prophecies, but it quickly became others making the prophecies with Q. it's an evolving shared decentralized game, and the unspoken goal is to create the most popular variant of the theory that others can attach themselves to

It's interesting because it's an example of what memes (in Richard Dawkins' original conception) were - the idea mutates when it needs to (when the road runs out on Jan 6th) and the strongest (the ones with the highest upvotes on the forums) continue - these are the ones that can latch onto an existing structure, like the Sovereign Citizen movement, or bible studies - being able to read everything as a biblical reference is a very similar skill to being able to read everything as a Q-code.

Zach_TBD (Karl Malone), Thursday, 4 March 2021 17:31 (yesterday) link

CNN was covering this yesterday...I guess they have to, but that really seemed to me to be a case where you're just feeding into the possibility of something happening. Cover it, and I'm sure there are people who think "Well, we'd better do something or we look weak"; ignore it (beyond a quick story about the Capitol closed for the day--you can't really ignore that) and the incentive to go through with this insanity diminishes. Not that I claim to understand this mindset.

Zach_TBD (Karl Malone), Thursday, 4 March 2021 18:48 (yesterday) link

QAnon Shaman (Jacob Chansley,the shirtless buffalo horn dude): "I developed a lot of sympathy for Donald Trump because it seemed like the media was picking on him and seemed like the establishment was going after him unnecessarily or unfairly, and I had been a victim of that all of my life, whether it be in school or at home. So in many ways I identify with a lot of the negative things that he was going through," Chansley said.

"I honestly believed and still believe that he cares about the Constitution, that he cares about the American people, and that's also why and you know it wounded me so deeply and why it disappointed me so greatly that I and others did not get a pardon," Chansley added.

Perhaps this is the core of their adulation, or at least some of them... rather than Trump as a strongman, they see him as somebody who has been pushed around and had sand kicked in his face, just like they've been pushed around, persecuted, shamed. A lot to unpack here.

people with poor self-awareness (most of us) are quite capable of feeling they are simultaneously super heroes and victims, without seeing any contradiction in that. learning to see yourself as if from outside and know your flaws and self-deceptions is a learned skill which must be kept in constant use if it is not to atrophy.

It's still stunning that man who daily wears hairspray and tanning spray, and has never carried anything heavier than a five iron in the last forty years, was able to position himself as a working-class hero/salt-of-the-earth/champion of the people so effectively. I mean, Hitler was at least a war veteran.
