For a ground-floor view of the phenomena of QAnon ... including the gestation of 'Watkins-Q-kun':

  1. 1. Which choice best represents your interest in the QAnon phenomenon

    • I'd be interested in an objective analysis of the phenomena
    • I will explain everything in a guest post here, if given the opportunity

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.

[...] If you really want to go down a Rabbit Hole where anti-deep state magic happens for real, look into "QAnon."

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:

Who knew? "It’s difficult to poll how many people believe in QAnon"


[...] Consider a recent poll from PRRI. It asked Americans whether they agreed with three separate statements, each a part of the QAnon belief system, but it didn’t mention QAnon by name. Fifteen percent of Americans agreed with the statement “the government, media, and financial worlds in the U.S. are controlled by a group of Satan-worshipping pedophiles who run a global child sex trafficking operation.” That statement is the central tenet of QAnon, but it’s also not a belief unique to the movement. Fears about Satan-worshipping pedophiles predate QAnon entirely, so belief in that statement isn’t limited to people who follow — or have even heard of — Q, according to Mary deYoung, a professor emeritus of sociology at Grand Valley State University in Michigan. DeYoung has studied the so-called “Satanic panic,” the inaccurate belief popular in the 1980s that Satanic ritual abuse of children was widespread in this country. A 1986 ABC News poll found that 63 percent of Americans believed members of religious cults had “too much influence in this country,” and 54 percent of America thought there should be laws against Satan worship, per a 1987 Williamsburg Charter Foundation poll. 


Some mildly hysterical reportage in this special out of Australia.

For relationships strained and destroyed, amid minor tragedies, Reddit has "QAnon Casualties" ... though I seem to recall someone in this topic raised a "how could we know these are not invented?" question about the stories posted there. 


I used to be a Q follower

Just wanted to share my story. So I started following Q before it blew blew up. I could follow it on Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, ect ect. This was last year btw. Luckily, I only followed it for a short period of time. During that time, I became obsessed. Like it was all I could think about. From documentaries, to constantly researching ect. Well last year, I was also struggling deeply with depression. I was not fulfilled at all. I hated how my life was going. Now that I obv don’t believe that shit and laugh at the insane posts now. I believe I was using Q as an outlet. I didn’t want to feel my feelings so I buried myself in Q. It gave me excitement, passion, curiosity, ect ect, things I was not experiencing in my life at that time. I didn’t have to deal with my depression and other personal problems because I was way too consumed with Q. It was honestly just a huge distraction for me and I think psychologically, that’s why I was so into it. I basically used it to escape from my own world and focus on that entirely 24/7 instead of my own problems . A documentary that did help me though is the social dilemma. They talk about how The algorithm can really feed into this type of stuff. I just wanted to share my story! I hope your loved ones see the light! Self awareness is key!


I only followed Q for two months. Something you can ask your loved ones who are stuck is .. are you happier looking up this stuff? Do you feel more stressed / overwhelmed when you look up Q? Do you feel like the world is a dark place since looking up Q? Are you forgetting about the kindness in the world? Is this adding value to your life? Do you feel powerless while looking up these things. Ask them to write how their views on life / the world were before q and after. Literally have them write it down so they can see it with their own eyes that it does nothing but cause stress. Don’t try to convince them it is not real because they will think you are a “sheep” and need to “do more research” ( which is funny because the research source is like “just trust me bro”) I asked these questions to myself and realized it was making me straight up miserable and literally draining my energy daily, I’m always highly sensitive so I get very overwhelmed quick with negative news Instead of trying to tell them they are crazy maybe ask these questions to them. Then if they decide that it doesn’t add value and want to stop being involved with Q.. over time they will see how insane it all was and seriously laugh at it like I do. It’s comical now lol. I was the type of to text my entire family and say stock up on food there will be a food shortage 😂😂😂😂 but over time they will slowly realize how these people basically be given a centimeter and take a whole mile to fit their agenda. I hope this helps. If it does let me know.

Canada has a new pretender ...

QAnons Are Harassing People at the Whim of a Woman They Say Is Canada’s Queen


“Hello, Canada, I’m Ramona Didulo, I'm the founder and leader of Canada1st. As of February this year, 2021, I am the head of state and commander in chief of Canada, the Republic,” she said in her announcement video. “The people who appointed me are the white hats and the U.S. military, together with the global allied troops and their governments—the same group of people who have helped President Trump.”

She speaks to her audience either through Telegram posts or via poorly produced videos in which she sits on a couch in front of an empty beige wall. In a follow-up video to her initial decree, Didulo declares herself not only the “the head of state,” “commander in chief,” and “head of government,” but also the “Queen of Canada, replacing Queen Elizabeth II of England who has now been executed for crimes against humanity.”



She decreed that Victoria is the new capital of Canada and recently released a video addressing the Indigenous community after the bodies of 215 children were found in a mass grave outside a residential school. She promised to investigate if they were killed for adrenochrome harvesting.

I hear sirens.

Someone is posting to Gab as Donald Trump -- formatting the official statements and releases for easy reading. This is making someone crazy ...

Note typo 'boy' -- should read 'bot' ...

The message was for Bill Barr ... who is apparently having a heck of a week himself, mostly due to Jonathan Karl.

A screenshot for your thoughts, President Trump. 

Or, "What about the stolen election do you not fucking get? Here I list elements of a vast -- if murky -- plot, which fucking Bill Barr did not catch. Call Rudy for the nitty gritty details, the numbers. Or Sidney. Or whoever wrote it down somewhere. I could go on ranting all my talking points for hours. I've been talking about these elements for the last six fucking months.

I made no mistakes, I have no regrets. I am glad to be rid of a gigantic fucking deep state staff restraining me. Half of whom were my own fucking appointments.

Yes go see the Deep Rig movie, even though tickets are forty fucking five dollars. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But better you pour your money into one of my campaign bathtubs instead. A girl's gotta eat."
