I just love typing a headline like that. With each keystroke I ask myself, “Shouldn’t you call the authorities and ask for help?” meaning finding a local psychologist and telling her, “I see these stories on the internet. They’re too fantastic to be real. Clearly I’ve gone mad.” But I know a shrink won’t tell me I’m imagining them. That’s the scary part. This is real. VICE:

When Michael Protzman, the leader of the QAnon cult that believes former President John F. Kennedy and his son JFK Jr. are still alive, died in June, people hoped the end was near for the group. The family members of those who joined the cult hoped it would disband so that their loved ones would finally return home.

But instead, a new leader has seemingly emerged: a 13-year-old girl known to her followers only as “Tiny Teflon,” the name of the Telegram channel she uses to communicate with her followers. According to multiple live chats on Telegram reviewed by VICE News, Protzman appears to have groomed the girl as his protege, hosting her on his live chats on Telegram, where he had tens of thousands of followers. […]

Tiny Teflon has created her own channel, conducted live streams with followers, and most worrying of all, has announced her plan to indoctrinate more children into the cult by teaching them how to decode real word events using the movement’s bastardized form of Jewish numerology, gematria.

“I definitely think I’m gonna have more kids involved in this,” Tiny said during a live chat on her channel on August 6. “Maybe they could share more code, because I don’t want to be talking the entire time when I do this show in the future. So I’ll definitely think of having kids share codes and teach what they know too.”

Just what America needs, a sub-culture of youngsters who believe in complete drivel and who grow up to vote at the age of 18. Or, maybe the voting age will be changed to 14. You remember the movie Wild In The Streets, right?

Now the set up of a 13-year-old with her own cult, inherited from her crazy father figure (and I don’t even want to speculate on what that’s about, those two together) is weird enough, right? You will not believe where it goes next. For the nth time I cry out, “If only I could make stuff like this up!” I would be running Hollywood.

While Protzman was the leader of the group, he introduced Tiny Teflon in March 2022 by featuring her on a live chat in his Telegram channels. During the chat, and in subsequent appearances, the pair would use gematria to make links between everything from the 2011 movie The Smurfs and the timing of Trump’s appearance in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York to conclude that Q’s predictions about the mass execution of the child-trafficking cabal is about to come true. It’s not known if there was any familial connection between Protzman or Tiny Teflon, or how they knew each other.

There you have it friends, the answers are to be found in Smurfs and Home Alone 2. And it gets stranger still, because Tiny Teflon’s mommy, whose handle is Teflon Don, is involved in all this.

In late July, she [Tiny Teflon] showed up at a Trump rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, where she was  photographed with multiple members of the JFK group.

Then she began to post again in the Negative 48 channel. As well as posting her “decodes,” on August 1 she shared a link to her new channel called ABC 123. The channel’s description says it will contain “Tiny Teflon’s Decodes, Research and Much More!” and in all caps, adds: “CHANNEL MONITORED BY ADULT.”

The description doesn’t mention who the adult is, but it is likely her mother, a Protzman devotee who has an account on Telegram as “Teflon Don.” Using this account she has promoted her daughter’s work as well as celebrating her birthday with a message posted in the main Negative 48 channel last year.

So what do we have here?

  1. A crazed fallen QAnon leader, who wiped himself out on his dirt bike;
  2. Succeeded by a 13-year-old who plans to recruit other kids her age (and presumably younger);
  3. Her wingnut enabler mother;
  4. MAGA.
  5. A terrified Donald Trump, bouncing off the ropes and running from the law.

What could possibly go wrong?

I leave you two things to ponder here. First, this quote by Carl Bernstein. “We are in the process of creating what deserves to be called the idiot culture. Not an idiot sub-culture, which every society has bubbling beneath the surface and which can provide harmless fun; but the culture itself. For the first time, the weird and the stupid and the coarse are becoming our cultural norm, even our cultural ideal.”

And this clip from Wild In The Streets.

Here’s a bonus clip. The music from this film was great.

  1. One could credibly argue QAnon’s first leader was an eight year old, and mentally probably was. So someone older would be an improvement from childish bullsh*t. BUT, all of us should think back to when we were teenagers and especially the first two or three years of being so. Kids that age are, even the relatively serious ones are f**ked up more often than not and most are borderline unfit for society. We’d be better off with another eight year old! Well, we’d be better off if there was and never HAD been a “Q” but alas, it’s there. Worse, unlike the Q of Star Trek, The Next Generation that only pops up infrequently to cause trouble the all too real Q that’s permeated our society is there causing trouble every single day.

  2. Those three you refer to – the crazed fallen QAnon leader, a 13-year-old, and her wingnut enabler mother – have no rational idea of what they are doing, and sadly they are really good at it. sadly people like this, just like Nietzsche alludes to “… don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.” They don’t get it, as Plato said, that “ … fools speak only because they have to say something” in contrast to having something to say like a wise person. Lastly, they fail to understand and heed Mark Twain’s advice “It’s better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.” In sum, Nietzsche, Plato and Twain are all on the money, in helping to expose these three QANONs for what they are – drivelling but concerning nonsense.

  3. So, the new (“underage”) Leader’s channel will be “monitored by an adult.”

    That doesn’t sound the least bit suspicious to me.

    What should be remembered is that “Tiny Teflon” could be a front. Remember that one of the most effective ways that law enforcement uses in trapping pedophiles is to use adults posing as children (and, with current aging/de-aging software, pretty easily available, many of these adults can simply use their own photos and de-age themselves to match the target’s preferred age range). Who’s to say that the “Tiny Teflon” who’s posting all that Q-crap isn’t really “mom” (if that is, in fact, her real mom and not some fake) actually posting it?

    Let’s not forget that, while the movie “Orphan” was a work of fiction, it was inspired by a real-life situation from a couple of years before the film came out.

    Not saying the “grooming” (and how ironic to use that term here) of a child to become a political assassin/con artist isn’t possible but it would be so interesting if the whole story isn’t just far-right-wing bullcrap to garner some headlines. Let’s also not forget the case of the story, “Jimmy’s World” which told the alleged story of an 8-year old heroin addict; the story won a Pulitzer until the author confessed to making up the whole thing from composites of other articles about heroin addiction. “Tiny Teflon” could be little more than another case (only with a child being used as a front/prop for a bunch of sociopaths).
