QAnon

QAnon

  • QAnon signs have been showing up at Trump rallies. It is a curious phenomenon. It is rumored to have been started by someone who wished to show the gullibility of people. For those who are not aware:

    For the uninitiated, QAnon is a conspiracy theory that posits that all presidents elected before Trump were part of a secret global ring of pedophiles that the president is now currently working behind the scenes to expose. The theory also claims that special counsel Robert Mueller is not actually investigating Trump, but is rather doing the president’s work of investigating the purported pedophile ring.

  • Maybe, I see a lot of people here and other boards that have TDS. I know Chester has it, maybe Swank and Muddy as well. I know one board that has 33 cases of it and if they don't get their daily Trump dose, they literally go insane. They would even pick on his toothbrush, to get rid of the fever.

    Except the Q are a very pro-Trump group.

    lol yeah, I'm confused. How would this be bad for Trump?

    It was too bizarre even for 4chan so it's an 8chan level conspiracy lol:

    A secret civil war is going on — or at least, it is in the minds of some U.S. citizens. At recent Trump rallies, people have been observed publicly expressing support for “Q”: An anonymous person or group that claims to have access to top-level security information about a secret cabal of corrupt elites, intellectuals, left-wing politicians and celebrities conspiring to exploit and even enslave people. President Donald Trump, apparently, is one of the few people willing and able to fight this secret conspiracy, often referred to as “Qanon."

    If it sounds crazy, that’s because it is. The mostly right-wing conspiracy theory makes a series of mind-blowing allegations that include Democrat-run centers for pedophiles and Satanic cults. The theory first appeared on various online message boards like “8Chan,” where followers shared “bread crumbs” — clues — about the dark and powerful forces that supposedly run their country.

    Aerch gets confused on the concept of good v bad.

    Aerch actually doesn't care. I don't wake up in the morning hating a person and thinking of a person 24/7/365 like some of you all here. That TDS is some nasty business. You might want to get it checked out.

  • The "Mueller is actually on our side" piece is that extra bit of seasoning that separates the truly great conspiracy theories IMO.

  • I’m at a loss as to what either of Aerch’s posts have to do with the topic

    I am aghast at what people are capable of believing. Eg. Hillary running a child sex ring out of a basement of a pizza joint. Does that make sense? No. Do people believe it? Yes. WTF!
    So. If idiots believe that Hillary was running a sex ring, then why wouldn't they believe at all past presidents were involved in a global ring of pedophiles. Yep! Oh sure, Reagan I can believe. And definitely GWB. But LBJ? Eisenhower?

    The Q was started as a joke. Like The Onion. And people suck it up.

    I've got a lot more respect for the people who are making this kind of daffy stuff up on their own than those that just regurgitate what Fox and Friends tell them every morning.

    The human imagination is a wonderful thing. We just live in some dark times.

  • I've heard dumber conspiracy theories. Not many, but a few.

    For many years back in the 50s and 60s (maybe more), lots of people believed that someone had developed a carburetor that would give a car 90 miles per gallon, but the oil companies bought it up and kept it off the market.

    No amount of reasoned argument could dissuade the believers ............ not much different from Trump's supporters.

    Yeah. Most of my maternal uncles bought into the carburetor thing. They were car freaks. And gullible. May they rest in peace.

    LMAO!!

    TDS is serious business Tre, they have to get their Trump bashing in or news daily or they become rabid.

  • So back to the topic at hand. It really is interesting how these things start and then metastasize.

  • SouthernmostIllini said... (original post)

    Yeah. I can’t believe that people believe you calculate an average annual return simply by dividing. And some of them are college educated!

    Dude! Get a hobby. Or, at least, a different one.
    As you fully know, I never stated 'average annual return'.

  • It's kinda sad when people don't realize they are being trolled

  • Trolls are kinda sad.

    Cheer up Chester

  • While Southern is busy pointing out squirrels in this thread, the president of the US had a picture taken with a QAnon goofball in the oval office.

    Trolls are pretty funny actually if you don't take them too seriously.

    We certainly have our share on this board.
