You know, I’m getting just a little sick and fed up with all of this Q-Anon pity bullshit. There’s a narrative out there in the media that keeps portraying Q-Anon members as ignorant and undereducated stooges. Nothing could be further from the truth.
In the pre-Covid days, Q-Anon was a third rate conspiracy site populated by the kind of indigent, mentally defective fools that the media loves to portray, but they were just a fringe group.
And then came the Covid national lockdown, and millions of honest, educated, morally sound Americans either found themselves working from home, or collecting unemployment and supplemental federal benefits. And either way, with nowhere to go, and nothing to do, they had oodles of extra time on their hands.
And so they went trolling on the net. Believe me, I’ve been there. I was laid off from United Airlines in the aftermath of 9/11. There is nothing more frustrating and aggravating than to suddenly find yourself unemployed due to circumstances beyond your own personal control. Some time for self pity is only natural, along with some time for righteous anger, but once that’s done, it’s time to get out there and find a job.
But what if you can’t find another job, because everything is locked down? And at some point, a minority of Americans stopped accepting the situation for what it was, taking their benefits and waiting for the crisis to pass so they could get back to work, and because they’re such special snowflakes, they had to find somebody to blame.
Enter Q-Anon. This disgusting cornucopia of delusion was ready to provide a whole Golden Corral buffet of bullshit conspiracy theories to satisfy their every kink. This led to Covid denial, which made government attempts to arrest the cirrus more difficult, anti vaccine idiots who thought that the vaccine would sterilize you or put implant chips in your blood, to deep state conspiracies to wipe out white people, so the Democrats could take over with blacks and Hispanics.
Let me make this as clear as I can. You know what Q-Anon is? It’s the fucking KKK! It’s the fuckiong American Nazi Party! It’s the kissing cousin of The Oath Keepers, and every other radical far right group that plays on the weak of mind.
But here’s the scary part. The vast majority of Q-Anon supporters and acolytes are not weak of mind! They are well educated, mainstream Americans who have made a personal choice to abdicate themselves from the real world, and instead find mythical demons to blame for their own personal problems.
Which makes them incredibly dangerous. Because it means that they will fall right in line with every third rate charlatan like Traitor Tot to move against all of the others that have made their lives a misery. And now, they’re showing up at Trump rallies with miserably disguised imitations of the Nazi salute, and Trump playing the Q-Anon theme song, Where one of us go, all of us go, which to me sounds suspiciously like Deutschland, Deutschland, uber alles!
You can’t blame Trump exclusively for this, he’s just the Pied Piper who has shown up to lead the masses. Once again, a segment of the American population has decided to abrogate their personal responsibilities, and blame the others instead. The problem this time is that some of these fuckers are armed with AR-15’s. I hate to say it, but this isn’t going to end without bloodshed, as January 6th proved.
