Skip to comments.Trump base latches onto ‘Q’ internet conspiracy cult
Posted on 08/02/2018 9:37:19 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Energized by the internet persona Qs complex web of conspiracy notions about the forces aligned against President Donald Trump, Qs followers have spread virally online and now, in real life too, forming a movement known as QAnon.
From somewhere in the vast and mysterious deep state, a dissident agent rises up to give the people cryptic clues about how their heroic president will push back the forces of evil and make America great again. The renegade informant is known only as Q, and if he actually exists, its not as a character in a movie, but somewhere in the Washington, D.C., bureaucracy.
Energized by Qs complex web of conspiracy notions about the forces aligned against President Donald Trump, Qs followers have spread virally online and now, in real life too, forming a movement known as QAnon that is making itself visible at Trumps rallies and other public gatherings.
QAnon is the latest in a string of conspiracy ideas that take hold of the publics imagination in times of social stress and technological change. And QAnon is something new, a leaderless popular movement made up of people who believe in no one and therefore are willing to believe almost anything.
To believers, Q is a pseudonym for a well-placed U.S. government agent who is posting online distress messages and bits of intel, known as breadcrumbs, in an effort to save the country and Trump from hostile forces within the government. Qs missives started appearing last October on 4chan, the mostly anonymous website where fringe ideas incubate and blossom....

Hah you probably did well in school, the teacher tells you what to think and rewards you when you answer as they want you to
Ever investigate anything, like get a few indications of a situation and then you have to dig in and research information to find the answer and come to a conclusion. In my world we call it troubleshooting. Q is just giving us symptoms, and we follow the first parts to get us on the case and then steps back and we dig in
Thats what Anons do, just average joes and we are great at digging in and
finding the truth and what fits logically and no one telling us this is what you need to find and say when you are there
Been in this side of things for decades, solving problems that have no obvious answer and going from what little I am given and finding the answer that never existed before and then taking that to the software or hardware folks to fix and the problem is solved
No one takes us by the hand and whips us to a conclusion, each has their own journey and epiphany
To each his own, so if you like what you have now then just sit back and enjoy
The dems love folks like you
They count on that attitude, don’t ask questions
>> Trump base latches onto Q
>> Qs followers have spread virally online and now
Seattle Times stalking FR...
I have been teaching for decades, highly technical material
You indoctrinate by the method you say
There are millions who fly in the face of what you posit, but just sot still and behave and it will be all better
Not this American!
No one sane would listen to someone who says “Trust Sessions”
Besides, why would you need an anonymous Queer to tell you which way the wind blows?
I don’t need anyone to figure out stuff for me. I’m the tip of the spear. Spears for Queers.
I think its a deniable back-channel operated by some very clever people in the administration.
It may not be entirely truthful, it may be working in a semi-fictional mode - but thats the thing, nobody looking at it knows when it isn’t. That plus the story-line are the clever bits.
This is politics, and therefore PR, and therefore entertainment, of a sort.
Except this time?
Not that it matters. The pansies who fall away when Q is either openly confirmed or denied by POTUS, we didn't need anyway.
The "I know you are, but what am I?" school of argument? Really?
Go with the flow.
It is what it is, I think for very good human-nature reasons. Just remember that the people at the other end, as always everywhere, are messing with you.
Probably, you would be very surprised to find the level of folks who visit here, and of late many are visiting trolls from the Anon board
Yeah, I spend a lot of time there and you get to recognize their prattle and positions trying to slide the conversations by blaming Jews, or flat earth and other non sense
But they are there because they like the DS fear all of the awakening that is happening, and if not the ask yourself WHY is the MSM so afraid all of a sudden if all the smart folks on this thread think it;s just a kid in the basement
Because you go after that which you fear, simply put
If not, you just laugh and let them all chase their tails
Yeah, there are a lot of Shill posters I recognize here
Double dipping, running scared
There you go, my good man. If there's anything we need to know about Q or President Trump, CNN will tell us.
Allow me to answer that question: because they love writing stories that make the Trump supporters look bad. And this one does that in spades.
You would have to do more than that to write up your desired solution and the process of getting there as a drama series for TV. Or a marketing campaign.
This thing, Q, is a great deal of that. It has entertainment value, deliberately. Its like the bit in “Christmas Story” where he so eagerly saves Ovaltine coupons to send off for the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring. Its participatory.
The problem, as in the “Christmas Story” thing, is of coming up with something real to decode. And with Q, so far, TBD.
Anonymous sources and authors is just about the only source of truly free speech the Left has left to us.
The choice to know, to look and see for yourself, is yours. You might discover they follow Trump first, not Q. They delight in the multitude of alignments between the two, but if Q didn't have this habit of dropping clues that lead to real, verifiable, timely, relevant information, the Autist community would have shredded it long ago.
Please provide your opinion about the "Radio Londres" sort of purpose by posting phrases such as "Jean has a long mustache", etc.
Been here since 1998 JustaTech
Seen a lot of your type come and go
Let me know when you can actually say something intelligent, then we will see just how deep you can swim
Till then stay in the “shallow” end of the pool of wisdom
It suits you
Given the state of corruption at FBI and CIA
Ill take almost anything serious about trying to take out our great wonderful
They must be deposed defeated tried convicted and hanged
I went to grammar school in the 50’s. Teachers didn’t tell you what to think back then. Graduated from high school in ‘65. In my later years I went to college full time at night, and worked full time days. My interest was history. Spent a lot of years, traveling extensively to various archives, libraries, and historical societies, doing research on primary source material that I was able to track down. Provided a bunch of my research material to authors who published books that included my finds. And I got acknowledgements in their books for it. Got free copies of the books as well.
So I did my own digging, in my own way, and came up with my own opinions and findings to write my Masters Thesis. I got a lot of satisfaction out of it, and met a lot of nice people along the way. Several year ago I donated all my years of research to the Mass. National Guard Museum and Archives in Concord. Didn’t want it to end up in a dumpster after I was dead.
At 70, and as last member of my family to survive, my goal now is to enjoy as many days as I have left.
Have fun doing what you’re doing.
There is you, and then there are my kids who are lotus-eating gamers without a hint of political interest. Most people aren’t you (or me).
You can huff at them (don’t bother, I have), but thats not going to get through. This, though ...
Don’t watch CNN or any news programming. Haven’t watched it since Obama was elected. And I’m a women.
