I'd like to open a field of discussion for the QAnon phenomena.  Here is where I will post in already existing material presented at OL by members.  I'll take direction from comments and from poll answers. 

  • What is Q / QAnon?
  • Why should anyone on OL pay attention?
  • Is skepticism justified?
  • What are the main questions readers have in mind to guide discussion?

No special rules or guidelines for this thread; the OL guidelines are good enough and will apply here. .  Please keep personal abuse to a minimum. Creative insults are kosher, but if they aren't on topic, why post them?

Our forum leader opened discussion on the phenomena back in January of this year.  My key-word search-term was "QAnon,"  not "Q," so the search results will not necessarily return all incidence of discussion touching on the phenomena.

I will post a thing about him later, probably in a new thread or on the Conspiracy Theory thread. He's been spot on accurate predicting a lot of recent happenings right before they happen. More recently he's been doing some twittering and he seems to like hamming it up a bit, so here are a few teasers:

From David Gilbert at VICE:

Quote

[...]

The site is set to be rebranded and relaunched as 8kun, and its owner, NT Technology, is calling on the operators of the old message boards on 8chan to contact them in order to get them back up and running.

In a tweet on Wednesday, the operators said: “If you were previously a Board Owner on 8chan, please email us at admin@8kun.net with your shared secret if you are interested in migrating your board to 8kun.”

The “shared secret” refers to an account-recovery system that includes a randomly generated password given to board owners only once. If their board gets hacked, the admins could send the password to 8chan's admin to regain control of the board.

8chan was taken offline in the wake of the El Paso shooting in August, because web infrastructure companies like Cloudflare pulled their support.

[...]

The conspiracy theory's mysterious leader “Q” told his followers that his communications would never occur outside of 8chan and that 8chan was the military's chosen platform for leaking intel.

So when 8chan went offline in August, the QAnon community were left adrift.

“I expect one of his first "drops" on 8kun will be to post a key so that “Q” can use other platforms in the future,” Brennan said. “That's why, if you ask me, it's so crucial that 8kun never be allowed to fully come online — if it does, QAnon can spread. Without it, QAnon is essentially dead.”

New Jersey requires automobiles to have license plates mounted on the front and rear, I recently bought a car and was issued a paper 'temp' tag for the rear, leaving the  front open.

I made a 'fun' front plate by fashioning a "Q" out of orange electrical tape on a white backround. I've noticed a few smiles and other approving gestures on the road.

The only q quotes or drops I've ever seen have come from reading OL and my favorite ,and to me, the most important q- related story is the one about the deputy sherriff in Florida wearing a patch while welcoming VP Pence.

To me the meme is more important and powerful than The Q, prove or disprove the personage , I'll always have Q. Who doesn't want a Q, yeh? Seriously who doesn't want to have the belief that there is a 'righteous' power to speaking ( and 'doing') truth to power?

T,

Look at you. You meme.

You meme with one hand tied behind your back.

William can't.

It's sad, but the left just can't meme.

Fredrick Brennan may understand more than anyone what is likely to happen, though of course he may be subject to a cognitive bias:

 

So Q been snuffed out for good, then , huh retard? I’m shattered. 😀

I do wonder why this is so wonderful to all you morons who have always “known” it was just a punk kid in his mom’s basement, anyway.  Why so much celebration over shutting down one punk kid in his mom’s basement? Something isn’t adding up.

@PokerPolitics continues to offer poignant takes on the Q phenomenon. These sum up a feeling I get when I consider the self-sealed mental landscape of  extreme QAnon cultists ...

I don’t understand, Billy.

You all have snuffed out the punk kid in his mom’s basement, right?

So why are all of you still obsessed with one pimply teenager who will never be heard from again, anyway?

William,

PP is as good as any. Look at my paraphrase of a few of his (or her) comments.

That while there are parents who willingly sell their children to the scientism and socialist indoctrination of modern education. It's more likely the teachers, nurses, and others who care for your children are there to turn them into willing thralls for the globalist manmade global warming power mongers.

. . .

Imagine living in this kind of fear. That a great evil hung over you like a cloud that will soon be destroyed along with the planet. That at any moment evil forces would be there to brainwash and control your family and destroy the entire earth in 10 years. That Christians (and now Trump) are out to get you.

. . .

Everyone is the outgroup. Everyone is to be distrusted. The enemy surrounds us. Only via isolation and safe spaces can we achieve salvation. Scientism plus statism is a poison that make people hateful and scared. To think anyone would want to be this way makes me sad.

That works to a tee for SJW's.

:evil:  :)

Cunning little video exposing a much-cited QAnon account's disinformation ...

 

Yes, TheISpy was caught. He is a proven faker. I had never heard of him, but I saw this video a few months ago when he was exposed. Apparently he had been faking being part of team Q. The video proves that he was just grabbing stills from public source video and using those to claim he “had to have been there himself.”

Apparently he is still kicking and has tens of thousands of followers.

What he is is one of you guys. And there will be many more, it isn’t hard to do, playing fake Q supporter.

So strange that all of you are still dutiful followers of “QAnon believers.”

Why do you care, why does M Roths follow so carefully the thoughts of “believers” in a pimply kid in his mom’s basement who you are certain was successfully and permanently silenced over two months ago?

For those not keeping track of the travails of 8chan/8kun, the Watkinses are at this moment trying hard to get a new' version back up on the internet.  Having acquired an adversary in Fredrick Brennan, they are stymied by his efforts -- no 8kun domain is able to maintain a hookup for more than minutes.

If you've not listened to the Brennan  interview above with the QAnonAnonymous merry crew, you might wonder about Brennan's motives ...

The leftie way of winning an argument is with censorship, mobs and guns.

They love to oppress the voice of all but those with permitted ideas. And they start by trying to shut down effective voices that thwart their plans.

Don't forget that our friend who helped elect President Trump the first time around came from 4chan.

The leftie idea is that if the creative anti-authoritarian people get shut down, they won't create and those left over will obey, obey obey...

It doesn't work that way without some serious guns and military, but all leftie governments always end there.

Look at China openly censoring the Internet within China. In fact, it has bled out so much, it has US businesses and celebrities kowtowing to an authoritarian regime. This is leftie heaven.

Stalking 8chan by harassing hosting companies is more of that. It's leadership the leftie way.

The 8chan folks will eventually figure it out. They are creative. They are deadly for lefties. And they are probably going to be real pissed when they get settled into new digs beyond the reach of the censors.
