The narratives about Qanon thread

Are you referring to all Q messages it this one in particular?

There’s only one Q.

Half this thread is talking about followers of Q, which is entirely different.

But as to Q messages, all of them of course. The person who calls themselves Q, like I said way back, it’s more like posts from the chans, by a certain person playing a LARP, it’s not even that uncommon on the chans for people to play a LARP, just this one, seem to get everyone’s attention, which trolls just love.

Don’t overthink it.

If you don’t get irony, then let those who get irony deal with irony.

That’s just what they want you to think.

Q is a continuum.

Sounds like @rowland might be one of these followers.
Can you confirm please?

No, I follow the Blue Oysters.

This was a cute one from today.

Why did Brennan endorse?

Why did POTUS select as Dir?

Buckle up.

Q

I think the question is a good one and the answer is fairly obvious.

It begins to be a real problem not just online anymore.

“She’s bat-shit crazy,” a conservative commentator said, of Marjorie Taylor Greene, who is running for a U.S. House seat in Georgia. “But she’s going to Congress.”

I have to admit, the study doesn’t surprise me, not even a wee bit.

But do liberals and conservatives in the United States embrace conspiratorial thinking to an equivalent degree? There are important historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons dating back to Richard Hofstadter’s book The Paranoid Style in American Politics to doubt this claim. In four large studies of U.S. adults (total N = 5049)—including national samples—we investigated the relationship between political ideology, measured in both symbolic and operational terms, and conspiratorial thinking in general. Results reveal that conservatives in the United States were not only more likely than liberals to endorse specific conspiracy theories, but they were also more likely to espouse conspiratorial worldviews in general ( r = .27, 95% CI: .24, .30). Importantly, extreme conservatives were significantly more likely to engage in conspiratorial thinking than extreme liberals (Hedges’ g = .77, SE = .07, p < .001). The relationship between ideology and conspiratorial thinking was mediated by a strong distrust of officialdom and paranoid ideation, both of which were higher among conservatives, consistent with Hofstadter’s account of the paranoid style in American politics.

Method

Participants and Procedure

For Study 1, we obtained a nationally representative quota sample ( N = 1000) of American adults (18–91, 47% male, 53% female, 28% liberal, 35% moderate, 37% conservative, 39% college degree). The survey was fielded by YouGov using an online panel from February 21 to 23, 2018 with standard national quotas on gender, age, race, education, and region.

Political Ideology

Participants in this study completed a single measure of ideological self‐placement: “In general, I think of myself as (1 = very liberal, 2 = somewhat liberal, 3 = moderate, 4 = somewhat conservative, 5 = very conservative,” M = 3.12, SD = 1.21).

Conspiratorial Thinking

We adopted Bruder et al.'s (2013) generalized “conspiracy mentality” (CMS) scale. This scale, which has been validated cross‐culturally, measures an individual’s general tendency to engage in conspiratorial thinking without mentioning any specific conspiracies.1 The measure consists of five items (e.g., “I think that events which superficially seem to lack a connection are often the result of secret activities”; 0 = definitely not true, 100 = definitely true). The CMS exhibited good reliability in our sample ( M = 67.72, SD = 17.41, α = .79).

the podcast "This American Life"is looking to do an episode on why Qanon people seem obsessed with pedophilia but most of the charities are fake.

According to Qanon today was the day that John Kennedy Jr was supposed to make his surprise return (he actually died in 1999) and replace Mike Pence as Trump’s running mate (of course, they also predicted he would do this on July 4, 2019).
Just wondering how that went.

Dear REMOVED,

I want to provide you some very important information. I’m a committee member within the Liberal Party of Canada. I sit within several committee groups but the information I am providing is originating from the Strategic Planning committee (which is steered by the PMO).

I need to start off by saying that I’m not happy doing this but I have to. As a Canadian and more importantly as a parent who wants a better future not only for my children but for other children as well. The other reason I am doing this is because roughly 30% of the committee members are not pleased with the direction this will take Canada, but our opinions have been ignored and they plan on moving forward toward their goals. They have also made it very clear that nothing will stop the planned outcomes.

The road map and aim was set out by the PMO and is as follows:

– Phase in secondary lock down restrictions on a rolling basis, starting with major metropolitan areas first and expanding outward. Expected by November 2020.
– Rush the acquisition of (or construction of) isolation facilities across every province and territory. Expected by December 2020.
– Daily new cases of COVID-19 will surge beyond capacity of testing, including increases in COVID related deaths following the same growth curves. Expected by end of November 2020.
– Complete and total secondary lock down (much stricter than the first and second rolling phase restrictions). Expected by end of December 2020 – early January 2021
– Reform and expansion of the unemployment program to be transitioned into the universal basic income program. Expected by Q1 2021.
– Projected COVID-19 mutation and/or co-infection with secondary virus (referred to as COVID-21) leading to a third wave with much higher mortality rate and higher rate of infection. Expected by February 2021.
– Daily new cases of COVID-21 hospitalizations and COVID-19 and COVID-21 related deaths will exceed medical care facilities capacity. Expected Q1 – Q2 2021.
– Enhanced lock down restrictions (referred to as Third Lock Down) will be implemented. Full travel restrictions will be imposed (including inter-province and inter-city). Expected Q2 2021.
– Transitioning of individuals into the universal basic income program. Expected mid Q2 2021.
– Projected supply chain break downs, inventory shortages, large economic instability. Expected late Q2 2021.
– Deployment of military personnel into major metropolitan areas as well as all major roadways to establish travel checkpoints. Restrict travel and movement. Provide logistical support to the area. Expected by Q3 2021.

Along with that provided road map the Strategic Planning committee was asked to design an effective way of transitioning Canadians to meet a unprecedented economic endeavor. One that would change the face of Canada and forever alter the lives of Canadians. What we were told was that in order to offset what was essentially an economic collapse on a international scale, that the federal government was going to offer Canadians a total debt relief. This is how it works: the federal government will offer to eliminate all personal debts (mortgages, loans, credit cards, etc) which all funding will be provided
to Canada by the IMF under what will become known as the World Debt Reset program. In exchange for acceptance of this total debt forgiveness the individual would forfeit ownership of any and all property and assets forever. The individual would also have to agree to partake in the COVID-19 and COVID-21 vaccination schedule, which would provide the individual with unrestricted travel and unrestricted living even under a full lock down (through the use of photo identification referred to as Canada’s HealthPass) .

Committee members asked who would become the owner of the forfeited property and assets in that scenario and what would happen to lenders or financial institutions, we were simply told “the World Debt Reset program will handle all of the details”. Several committee members also questioned what would happen to individuals if they refused to participate in the World Debt Reset program, or the HealthPass, or the vaccination schedule, and the answer we got was very troubling. Essentially we were told it was our duty to make sure we came up with a plan to ensure that would never happen. We were told it was in the individuals best interest to participate. When several committee members pushed relentlessly to get an answer we were told that those who refused would first live under the lock down restrictions indefinitely. And that over a short period of time as more Canadians transitioned into the debt forgiveness program, the ones who refused to participate would be deemed a public safety risk and would be relocated into isolation facilities. Once in those facilities they would be given two options, participate in the debt forgiveness program and be released, or stay indefinitely in the isolation facility under the classification of a serious public health risk and have all their assets seized.

So as you can imagine after hearing all of this it turned into quite the heated discussion and escalated beyond anything I’ve ever witnessed before. In the end it was implied by the PMO that the whole agenda will move forward no matter who agrees with it or not. That it wont just be Canada but in fact all nations will have similar roadmaps and agendas. That we need to take advantage of the situations before us to promote change on a grander scale for the betterment of everyone. The members who were opposed and ones who brought up key issues that would arise from such a thing were completely ignored. Our opinions and concerns were ignored. We were simply told to just do it.

All I know is that I don’t like it and I think its going to place Canadians into a dark future.

lol, jokes. that’s funny @welcome. where did you get that fictional email?
sounds like NWO reptiles to me. pretty sure this belongs in the conspiracy theory thread

How many rings have they broken up? :sweat_smile:

“No officer, those pictures are not for personal use…see I was just…collecting evidence.” :sweat_smile:

A friend sent it to me on FB. He assured me it was from a “reliable” source. :grin:
