How about they don't get across the threshold.
 
2020-08-08 5:17:23 PM  
I don't invite them in the first place.  I don't speak to them anymore, since they show no signs of recovering.

Conspiracy theorists are mentally ill, IMO.  They actively refuse all evidence that points to something else other than the conclusion they want.

This is the best time in American history to be stupid. The more you display, and the stupider the content you espouse, the more you will be coddled. There's only one reason Trump is in office, and there's only one reason the likes of Q resonates across the land.

Loneliness is not good for my mental health - but I can't pretend that I'm okay with my friends/family who skew Q. It's just not okay.

Well that's the problem with conspiracies, in that anything that points away from the conspiracy is, itself, part of said conspiracy.  It's a black hole for logic.

Mental illness isn't a choice, believing stupid shiat with no evidence is.

That lack of evidence is all the evidence they need. It's way more fun to be in a secret cabal than a short bus... even if it's just a short bus with "secret cabal" written on the side with a sharpie.

CSB: The only social media where I run into deplorables is Fark. Not too long ago, a friend chastised me for not reading anything right wing or fascist because I need to know what that side is saying. He complained that my social media was all news, science, local literary events, and editorials that excluded anything deplorable and antagonistic that I claimed to be opposing. He told me I looked naive and uninformed. I responded that I read the Fark poltab daily and his response was "What's that?" followed half an hour later by something to the effect of, "I said look at the rabid gangrenous badger through binoculars, not stick your dick in it." But I got to gloat that maybe I was the balanced guy who knows what the Other Side is all about after all.

They are using the Bannon playbook of getting video game nerds and people with mental disorders to follow them and then slowly begging the question and "just asking questions' and "research it bro".

So the reference is to a game guild and not them forming a local Q chapter? I can see them forming locally now that I think about it. Either one is bad juju.

I directed him to the posts, as the news sources.

Also, we are Canadian, so we do a lot more whattheabsolutefark about things that websites in Kentucky see as centrist. Honestly, a lot of people up here still just laugh at the idea of a centrist or progressive Fark. Like, most people who sound like (for example) Brantgoose in-person, don't stick around once they read the threads. The Canadians here are the adventurous ones.

It's not simply mental illness, at least on a personal level. We're witnessing the mental break of an entire society -- a significant portion thereof. These people, en masse, have been broken so severely by the corrosion of Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes, and now Donald Trump, among others, that they have shifted into a different form of reality. It's so pervasive.

Bannon started selling gold in wow.

Through that he found he could use angry bros on the forums to spread his messages if he tweaked then just right.

This then lead him to 4chan and that group helped amplify what he had already done.

They then moved to real life using these tech savvy sociopaths to convert family members.

The same basic methodology was used by Q. The only difference is the gullible assholes didnt need their kids to sell them, they already had tweeter accounts.

They were ripe for the plucking and that is why you are seeing so much forward motion so fast and in real life.

They are using Bannon's tea party bullshiat playbook, only this time it is woth shiat you cannot prove wrong because it is all written like someone high on dmt predicting the future.

Religion is dying out. All the mentally ill had to believe in something.

Been rewatching the X-Files. For one, I think it was almost a religious show. And for another, it doesn't take much of a leap at all to see that the X-Files gave birth to Q.

It's closer to a cult at this point.

If you think only people with mental illness wind up in cults, you might be the sort of person who winds up in cults.

WTF ever.
Q ain't boots on the ground.
Women's March = 300k pairs of boots on the ground.  The school fundraiser for my boy's school had bigger turnout than the Nazis in Charlottesville.

You wanna see a movement, drive down Lake St & look at all the burnt out buildings. There's alphanumeric characters spray painted everywhere, "ACAB, F12, BLM, I can't breath", & I've never seen 1 Q..

Maybe those Q freaks can leave the basement long enough to shoot their mothers & Fark her dead body.  (Why do serial killers & Q-freaks always hate their moms?).  I'll start taking Q, R, & S seriously when I start seeing them in real life.

Whoever started Qanon, whether it be Russia, republicans, or some chamber troll, they no longer have control over it. Best case scenario is it ends up like the tea party and the republicans that encourage it get replaced by some true believer that only lasts one term.

Do people really "skew" when it comes to Q-anon?  It's not as if it's a well-defined...or even somewhat-defined...political platform.  I can't imagine anyone being like "you know, for the most part I'm in favor of the <political stuff>, but I also appreciate the firmer economic policies of the Q party...if they could form a coalition government with the Republicans, then I'd definitely be in favor."  I feel as though you are either in the camp of "it's nonsense" or the camp of "Clinton is 50% lizard person who mainlines aborted fetus stem cells so that she can seize power after the 2030 election."

Just reviewed the SCP files. You're right. It is some kind of memetic threat that escaped containment.
 
2020-08-09 1:23:04 AM  
Just like with flat or hollow earthers, lizard people believers, pizzagaters and Christians, the belief started as a joke so long ago the original author has probably forgotten posting it and moved on to a pyramid scheme or cooking meth.
Someone smarter figured a way to profit from it, and made it viral. Sadly this happened at a time when the average attention span is ten seconds and the average education level is marginally above the crayon eating and glue sniffing grade.
Maybe this is some kind of Darwininan intellectual cull, and only those with object permanence and objectivity will survive.
Let's hope.
