Skip to comments.The Media’s Obsession With Qanon Is More Insidious Than You Think
Posted on 10/17/2020 7:43:31 PM PDT by CheshireTheCat
...But why is the left pretending that the Qanon movement is such a big deal that the president himself must denounce it? So far, the movement has not been credibly tied to any acts of political violence, nor have they called for physical force against those with whom they disagree. Those affiliated with the movement certainly subscribe to unorthodox and unproven theories, but the notion that they are somehow more harmful than any other conspiracy theory movement is absurd.
The corporate press is pushing the Qanon issue so hard because it is an effective political tactic used by the media on both sides of the aisle. It is an example of nutpicking, a practice designed to discredit ones political opponents by making it seem as if the fringe of a group somehow represents the entire movement.
According to RationalWiki: Nutpicking is the fallacious tactic of picking out and showcasing the nuttiest member(s) of a group as the best representative(s) of that group hence, picking the nut.
The bottom line is that Guthrie and her ilk want to paint the entire conservative movement with the Qanon conspiracy theory brush. They are attempting to convince their viewers that the group makes up a considerable portion of the right. In this way, they hope that their viewers will see conservatives as wacky conspiracy nuts who should not be taken seriously....

If Demonrats wanted to make people think Q followers are kooks and that large amounts of Trump supporters are Q followers, then the Demonrats would encourage people to check out the goofy things Q decoders on YouTube are saying.
The establishment really is populated by satanic pedophile cultists?
Stop using logic!
Like blacklist. Closing in on the cabal
Who said “These people are stupid?”
This addresses your post:
There is 'Q'. 1
There are 'Anons'. 2
There is no 'Qanon'. 3
Media labeling as 'Qanon' is a method [deliberate] to combine [attach] 'Q' to comments _theories _suggestions _statements [and ACTIONS] made by 2.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU CANNOT ATTACK THE INFORMATION
[primary source 1]?
DO YOU ATTACK [& TYPECAST] THROUGH USE OF OTHERS?
Not all 'Anons' are authentic [injected].
Do you believe it was a coincidence surgical removal of You Tube accounts occurred same day as 'Hunter' drop?
Welcome to the Digital Battlefield.
Anything that THREATENS THE CONTROLLED CHANNELS of information MUST BE DESTROYED BY THE MSM!!!!
When asked again by media... Trump should ask them how they deal with such conspiracy theories as Hunter Biden etc.
When they state they just ignore them, Trump can claim same about Qanon
If they were really concerned with violence, theyd shut down BLM /Antifa pages.
This is what they do
Is the pope Catholic?
I guess technically, he is.
But does he really uphold Catholic values?
From the NYT:
Rebuffed by Vatican, Pompeo Assails China and Aligns
With Popes Critics
Pope Francis declined to see Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is demanding a harder Vatican line on China. The Holy See said meeting just before a U.S. election would be inappropriate.

ROME Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently published a sharp letter excoriating the Vaticans plans to renew an agreement with the Chinese government on Church operations in China. He promoted the article in a tweet, concluding, The Vatican endangers its moral authority, should it renew the deal.
An indignant Vatican took the article more as a calculated affront than a diplomatic gesture. The friction broke into the open on Wednesday as Mr. Pompeo arrived in Rome and met with prelates and others who are hostile to Pope Francis, while the Vatican denied him a meeting with the pontiff and rebuffed his efforts to derail the deal with China....
Maybe the pope is too busy these days trying to deal with all the dioceses in the U.S. that are going bankrupt due to having to pay out on successful lawsuits brought against priests for sexual abuse to meet with Pompeo.
“The establishment really is populated by satanic pedophile cultists?”
Ever heard of Epstein Island?
Remember when we could still nutpick the Democrats before these last 12 years?
Not the best bet to wager....
If the latest info about videos on Hunter Biden’s hard drive is true, Qanon may soon find itself with more credibility than ANYONE foresaw...
And people listening to the townhall with Trump and Guthrie would not have been able to go on YouTube the next day to learn about Qanon because those videos were suddenly no longer there.
Well they could still check on the Internet.
Well, not EVERYONE.
So, Qanon believes there is a pedophile conspiracy afoot.
the Media-Dem Party believes there is a Trump-Russian conspiracy afoot.
The Media-Dem Party also believes that there a Trump-Qanon conspiracy afoot.
The Media-Dem Party also believes that Trump was out stealing mailboxes to further his conspiracy against the Post Office.
So, why is Qanon a bunch of dangerous conspircy theory kooks and the Media-Dem Party isn’t?
