Not a problem.  Split that Republican vote all you want.  Super majorities for Democrats would be wonderful thing.

Just Tea Partiers by a different name.

F*ck them individually and collectively.

With your vote, of course.

This is why we need to kill the filibuster, because if just one of these guys gets elected to senate, then between them and Rand Paul nothing will ever get done, even if McConnell is gone.

All Republicans.  Curious, that.

Heh that would be an interesting fetish; believing that insane shiat and voting for the lizard people anyway...

I assume the Q thing is a prank. If the prankster has any humanity left at all he or she needs to come out publicly before the election.

It started as a prank, but it morphed into a mob of true believers.  Everyone should probably watch "The Invitation."

I almost said it wouldn't matter. I was feeling generous. Got a link to that? I'm actually really interested

What I don't understand is why rather than trying to argue some sense into these people, why not try just laughing in their faces? Their ideas are so stupid, it's a perfectly reasonable response.

I'm not saying we don't have a redneck idiot problem in WNY, but for now we seem to have staved off the Qderps.

Because at least half of them are packing and ALL of them are completely unhinged.  Hell, Boebert struts around with her piece like she thinks she's Annie farking Oakley.  She even built a whole restaurant around the concept of gun fetishism.

If more of us could type Russian we could send the same back, but generally we do not know Russian and we do not wish to create chaos and failure.

Isn't that basically the entirety of the House Freedom caucus aka the Teabaggers? I remember there was something like 40 of them who ran and won in 2010 on "the black President is too black" platforms, but they've since lost some seats and I think they're down to about 25 members or so though I can't remember the exact numbers and I'm too lazy to verify so don't take my word for it.

Yeah. Those people were already nucking futs. They were birthers who hated the Fed, social security, taxes, abortion, obamacare, immigration, science, evolution and climate change. QAnon is just one more crank conspiracy to toss onto a mountain of crank conspiracies.

But the House has always had its fill of crackpots. It's only recently that one of the parties has decided to make their illogical nonsense national policy.

I work in a laboratory that does COVID testing and research. Every Saturday we have pizza in the break room for all the lab employees. And I just found out that someone upstairs in management is deep into the QAnon cult, which includes pizza and now the COVID virus in its repertoire of nonsense.

Now, in any other year I'd say I'm being paranoid, but I am a little worried one of her fellow cult members might think, "COVID researchers eating pizza? THIS MEANS SOMETHING!" And next thing we know we're getting shot up by a crazy person for being nerds that have terrible diets.

Cargo cult politics.

Hearing rumors that the Politics Tab is going to be deleted in a great "re-awakening" for Fark Dot Com.

My only source for this information is a mysterious contact that I'll refer to as "DrewAnon", playing off the clever "QAnon" nickname that has become fun for the whole family.

I looked up the Hawaii guy - yes he won the Republican primary in my district with 14,000 votes.  He ran for Senate in 2018 and lost by like 43% percentage points.

I think the problem is that in the past we would just either exclude them or punch them in the face, but in our "connected" world, they always find support, because we cannot physically punch them in the face.

Looks like that crazy chick in Georgia won her primary.  She's going to be getting a lot of airplay on Fark.

Or maybe Drew will just get blitzed one afternoon and nuke the queue again

The Q[redacted]s have been making a major push on FB lately. A few people now around me have pushed their child trafficking (read:pizzagate) nonsense big time in the last couple of weeks and I don't think any of them realized it.

What is reality, really? 2020 certainly put a stop payment on that check.

Why did you assume I was referring to Drew?  You must be on the inside.  Out yourself.  Now.

I sometimes wonder if a disgruntled member of the intelligence community or three didn't try to use it, once it transmogrified from Moot's stupid joke, to disseminate actual information

but then I remember: They could just go to the farking New York Times.

And yet to "exclude" them in a connected world will result in something none of us want.  We really do live in interesting times.

LOL maybe we are going to have to admit that other people exist and that we are not living in a "world" of our own creation.

Nature is trying really hard to tell us that "we are all in this together" but we keep ... not taking responsibility.

I think people are too afraid of these kooks to mock them in the open? They don't want to appear as though they're defending child traffickers maybe? Or maybe they think they're opening themselves up to being doxxed or something? Not sure. Either way, we need to get over it and nip this dumb shiat in the bud immediately.

If you see a friend starting to wade into these crazy waters, call them out. Get mutual friends to join you. Gang up on them.

No I think most people are just excluding them from their lives, the problem is that these days these people can go home and find so much support online, that they feel justified.

It is something we are going to have to learn to deal with, if there is time, if we do not fark it all up before we get the chance.
