  1. There is another way I understand Q--in essential terms. I've talked about this before. It's called " trading up the chain." In mainstream press terms, the QAnon phenomenon has been a variation on this. This looks like some fairly effective "trading up the chain" ...
  2. I read this and the more I went along, the more I kept thinking it was so beside the point. Talk about irrelevance on steroids. But I ended up reading the whole thing. I took a look at the author, Marc-André Argentino. He's a crank funded by globalist establishment think tanks. He tries to come up with cutesy sounding terms like "infodemic" and so on. His main interest is how to find ways to shut down free speech, especially on the Internet. His main smokescreen, from what little I looked through search results, is fighting the QAnon dragon. He has even proposed that QAnon is a publi
  3. A fun read, if you like oddities, quirks and foibles ... The Church of QAnon: Will conspiracy theories form the basis of a new religious movement? May 18, 2020 7.12am EDT
  4. QAnon. pub is an alternative to Qmap.pub (which adds in editorial material from unknown people) ...
  5. That previous post leads directly to the video below I just saw. The way society was shut down with this coronavirus situation, this is really really really similar to the first stage of an initiation ritual. There are several names for it, preparation, isolation, separation, purification and so forth. But that's where we're at. According to the video, mundane means "of the world." So this first stage is for initiates to detach from the mundane and replace it with symbolic things and actions and patterns that represent a different way of living or being. The second sta
  6. On the front porch ... ... number 3929 has spawned some good and bad interpretive dancing via Qmap.pub, whereas Qanon.pub adds no headlines or editorial enhancements: (click image for direct to 8kun, if you dare). Qanon.pub: Qmap.pub:
  7. Would you say that something like this is the end-result, or, at least related: (regarding a Buzzfeed article: "Lifestyle Influencers Are Now Sharing Some Bogus Far-Right Conspiracy Theories About The Coronavirus On Instagram" https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/stephaniemcneal/coronavirus-lifestyle-influencers-sharing-conspiracy-qanon
  8. There is another way I understand Q--in essential terms. I've talked about this before. It's called " trading up the chain." In mainstream press terms, the QAnon phenomenon has been a variation on this. Note: I'm not talking about who is behind this. I'm merely talking about how this spread. Trading-up-the-chain is a press strategy identified and named by Ryan Holiday. It works like this. If a person wants to get an idea (or any kind of publicity) into the mainstream press through the back door, so to speak, he starts with a small site or place with no audience. But at that site or p
  9. Peter, The virus is not a conspiracy and I doubt anyone posting here on OL (or reading OL for that matter) thinks the virus is a conspiracy. It may have been created artificially, or it may have emerged. We're in fog of war communications situation so nobody really knows. But the virus exists. Nobody is saying it doesn't exist. However, the mainstream media coverage and power grabs by sundry factions are conspiracies. Technically, one can say QAnon is a counterconspiracy. There's a power struggle going on and all factions are using the emergency to bolster their power and take down t
  10. From Rolllng Stone. Coronavirus Is Spreading — And So Are the Hoaxes and Conspiracy Theories Around It The government introduced the coronavirus in 2018, and Bill Gates was also somehow responsible. There is a vaccine or cure for coronavirus that the government won’t release Coronavirus originated with Chinese people eating bats When it comes to major world events, it’s not uncommon for enterprising sleuths to dig deep into fictional sources to find a premonition, however tenuous it may be. (Remember when people thought that Back to the Future II predicted the Cub
  11. Peter, People don't do conspiracies out in the open (except in America where certain conspirators have a complicit press and this still leaves me with jaw dropping ). One characteristic of a conspiracy is that it is meant to be hidden until the right moment. That's by definition. So how can one demand observed fact about something hidden? One has to dig and expose. The idea that a suspicion is loopy just because you can't see who is doing the bad stuff is a very dangerous one. You can't see a cancer cell inside you with your eyes alone. Not even doctors can. And if you ignore i

  13. I don't know what to make of that. Why would you be asking me questions "about 'Q' and/or 'QAnon'"? Ellen
  14. The jottings you deleted yesterday were titled "The #QAnon phenomena, as explained by various outlets and commenters". Did you mean the plural, or do you not know that "phenomena" is plural? Many phenomena attend the Q phenomenon. To my mind, Q is the ultimate boondoggle for rational inquiry. I've been directed a few times to separate "Q" from "QAnon," and I will probably make the same kind of differentiation errors. Are you taking questions about "Q" and/or "QAnon"?
  15. Qanon.pub has less editorial whoopee added than Qmap.pub.
  16. The jottings you deleted yesterday were titled "The #QAnon phenomena, as explained by various outlets and commenters". Did you mean the plural, or do you not know that "phenomena" is plural? Ellen
  17. I don't know if he did any doctoring of what you said, like he did with writing "Trump" as "Drumpf" in posts he quoted from Michael in the jottings which appeared at New Year's. His jottings were titled "The #QAnon phenomena [sic], as explained by various outlets and commenters." He included some quotes from you from posts you made in April 2018. Ellen
  18. https://mobile.twitter.com/Jordan_Sather_ Dec 30 Ice T unknowingly tweeting a QAnon related meme and then telling a blue check mark journalist to eat a dick is exactly how I wanted my 2019 to end.
  19. This speaks for itself. Trump just retweeted a 'QAnon' conspiracy-theory hashtag to his 68 million followers It's hard to play the denial-by-featuring-goofy-fringe-folks game when the president himself does the Q stuff this blatantly. Michael
  20. A second slashing episode on Left-Wing Grifters -- from QAnon Anonymous (sampler):
  21. For some real snark that Wikipedia just can't beat ... https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/QAnon
  22. The compilers of files at Qanon.pub site dispense with the extra editorial finnicks found at Qmap.pub. The Qmap.pub site is probably more fun to faux 'researchers' -- as an anonymous crew piles on entailments. Eg, these are all the Soros-boogeyman 'themes' the crew has applied: -- for those who use RSS feeds to sample the Q drops, Qmap.pub offers translations in nine languages: https://www.qmap.pub/api/rss?lang=en Why is George Soros in Ukraine?
  23. To look at the other side, here is a discussion between Steven Hassan (a cult expert) and a guy named Travis View, who has an anti-Q podcast called "QAnon Anonymous." I have followed Hassan for years due to my interest in cults. He's done his deepest dive on Scientology and Jehovah's Witnesses, and, of course, the Moonies, of which he was a part. More recently, he's gone off the deep end. He thinks half of America is in a cult, the Trump cult. He wrote an entire book about it: The Cult of Trump: A Leading Cult Expert Explains How the President Uses Mind Control. I was
  24. Another thread opens on the matter of Q. 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?
  25. Intriguing article: Psychology and the Allure of Conspiracy Theories -- I just bought the newish book edited by Joseph Uscinski, whose research is noted in the article cite above. I'll try to take a fair-use excerpt from the Uscinski appearance on Watter's show, and maybe put it together with some other material celebrating/castigating the segment by the 'Qmmunity' (and its skeptical attendants) ... in the QAnon thread, once Chod finishes with his spasms.
