CNN Special Report: Inside the QAnon Conspiracy
I watched the repeat of this program on CNN last night. It makes for uncomfortable viewing, mainly because one of my children absolutely fell for the QAnon Conspiracy, hook, line and sinker.
Q Clearance Patriot
If you wanted to give yourself an anonymous title, you couldn’t do much worse that this one: it’s become a dog whistle for middle class white Americans. Old tropes have been recycled as if new, and the hint of insider ‘knowledge’ has made every Tom, Dick and Harry search out clues to see what is ‘truth’. The example given last night, but posted on 4chan (fortune?) in early November, 2017, was this puzzle:
Operation Mockingbird? Dog whistle! CIA media manipulation…
Then that question (speaking of the MSM): “Who is A Cooper?”
Anderson Cooper, of course! But, I thought to myself, what if he was naming a different A Cooper?
That would have been far more ‘useful’ since Alice Cooper hides behind a satanic persona and advocates the very things that nasty Cabal people evidently do ‘in real life’ (not really…) with dead babies.
OK. Do you get my point? Being ‘outed’ by Q brings a lot of scrutiny on your history and ‘nastiness’.
The Storming of the Capitol on January 6th has become the defining moment of a conspiracy theory gone oh-so-terribly wrong. The images on the Main Stream Media of a modern American insurrection were almost too awful to witness. What were they thinking? What did they hope to achieve?
One of the most common forms of forgery in Jewish writings around the time of early Christianity is the literary genre known as the apocalypse. An apocalypse (from the Greek meaning a “revealing” or an “unveiling”) is a text that reveals the truth of the heavenly realm to mortals to help them make sense of what is happening here on earth. Sometimes this truth is revealed through bizarre and highly symbolic visions that the author allegedly sees and that are explained by some kind of angelic interpreter. An example is in the book of Daniel in the Hebrew Bible. At other times the author is said to be taken up to heaven to see the ultimate truths of the divine realm that make sense of the horrible events transpiring here on earth. A Christian example is the book of Revelation in the New Testament.
These books are meant to inspire hope in their readers. Even though things seem to be completely out of control here on earth, even though there is rampant pain and misery and suffering, even though wars, famines, epidemics, and natural disasters are crushing the human race, even though things seem to be completely removed from God’s hand—despite all this, everything is going according to plan. God will soon make right all that is wrong. If people will simply hold on for a little while longer, their trust in God will be vindicated, and he will intervene in the course of things here on earth to restore peace, justice, and joy forever.Forged (pp. 29-30).

Is THAT Clear Enough?
We are NOT in the 1st Century of the Common Era, and yet Q was writing as if he had the authority of the President of the United States. He was pretending to know what was really going on. In truth, he was misleading about a tenth of the American population, sowing seeds of discontent, and inciting war on evil. It’s the oldest trick in the world, and a lot of people got sucked into the vortex, even in England.
Has no one thought about the fact that this sounds a lot like a Putin tactic? However, I understand if people who ‘trust the plan’ don’t want to admit they might have been duped. No one likes to feel like he (or she) has been made to look like a fool. That’s completely acceptable. What’s not acceptable is the constant moving of the new deadline to sometime in the near future.
