A Bit Of Fun

Asked about QAnon a couple of days back, Donald Trump had an interesting response:

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Wednesday offered encouragement to proponents of QAnon, a viral conspiracy theory that has gained a widespread following among people who believe the president is secretly battling a criminal band of sex traffickers, and suggested that its proponents were patriots upset with unrest in Democratic cities.

“I’ve heard these are people that love our country,” Mr. Trump said during a White House news conference ostensibly about the coronavirus. “So I don’t know really anything about it other than they do supposedly like me.”

When told by a reporter about the central premise of the QAnon theory — a belief that Mr. Trump is saving the world from a satanic cult made up of pedophiles and cannibals connected to Democratic Party figures, so-called deep-state actors and Hollywood celebrities — Mr. Trump did not question the validity of the movement or the truth of those claims.

Instead, he offered his help.

“Is that supposed to be a bad thing or a good thing?” the president said lightly, responding to a reporter who asked if he could support that theory. “If I can help save the world from problems, I am willing to do it. I’m willing to put myself out there.”

Mr. Trump’s cavalier response was a remarkable public expression of support for conspiracy theorists who have operated in the darkest corners of the internet and have at times been charged with domestic terrorism and planned kidnapping.

Is QAnon a conspiracy theory?

In my understanding, QAnon – or more exactly Q – is someone working with Donald Trump in the White House, dropping enigmatic clues on 4chan about what Trump was planning to do. Q also dropped “proofs” of his proximity to Trump, by posting seconds before or seconds after Trump’s tweets.

I took quite a lot of interest in Q when I first heard of him, because it seemed like a new and interesting way of communicating. But I got bored when Q’s predictions seldom seemed to come true: nobody was ever indicted. People wondered why the MSM didn’t ask Trump about Q directly. It seems that they now have done so at last.

In my read of Q, it’s not really that “Mr. Trump is saving the world from a satanic cult made up of pedophiles and cannibals” or that Q is advocating “domestic terrorism and planned kidnapping.” What’s interesting is his apparent close proximity to Trump (some people think that Q actually is Trump).

Sample recent Q post:

Ask yourself a very simple question –
Why is everything re: ‘Q’ being censored, banned, and attacked?
When do you expend ammunition [resources]?
Q

The answer to the second question is “when you’re over the target”. And the answer to the first question follows from the second: Q is censored, banned, and attacked when he targets Trump’s enemies.

The best thing Trump’s enemies could do would be to simply ignore Q. But they don’t. And this draws more attention to him. If this is a conspiracy theory, it’s because the MSM themselves conspire to keep Q alive.

I think Q is really just a bit of fun in an otherwise funless world.

    OT: We are all well aware that the WHO does not focus its time or funds on actual public health issues. They seem to only be concerned with social engineering (e.g., Tobacco Control), and not concerned with contagious diseases (e.g., COVID-19). But in case there are still some hangers-on who happen to still have a shred of faith left in the WHO, this should be the final nail in the coffin:

    WHO warns coronavirus vaccine alone won’t end pandemic: ‘We cannot go back to the way things were’

    The World Health Organization said Friday that a vaccine will be a “vital tool” in the global fight against the coronavirus, but it won’t end the Covid-19 pandemic on its own and there’s no guarantee scientists will find one.

    World leaders and the public must learn to manage the virus and make permanent adjustments to their daily lives to bring the virus down to low levels, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a news conference from the agency’s Geneva headquarters. “At the same time, we will not, we cannot go back to the way things were.”

    Throughout history, outbreaks and pandemics have changed economies and societies, he said.

    “In particular, the Covid-19 pandemic has given new impetus to the need to accelerate efforts to respond to climate change,” he said. “The Covid-19 pandemic has given us a glimpse of our world as it could be: cleaner skies and rivers.”

    Yes, you read that correctly. The leader of the WHO says we will not go back the way things were pre-COVID-19 because we have to respond to Climate Change. They’re not even trying to hide their true agenda anymore.

      I’ve just come back from a visit to a beauty salon, for the first time in years and I feel a lot more cheerful for it. I smell of cinnamon too.

      “… we will not, we cannot go back to the way things were.”

      We who?
      Does this mean that every country in the world will do what he says?

      • Joe L. says:

        That’s certainly his expectation. They didn’t choose to name the organization the World Health Organization simply because it had a good ring to it.

        Just look at what the WHO did with the FCTC. They basically bribed poorer, developing countries into signing the treaty by promising grants and funding. I wouldn’t be surprised if they take a similar approach with this.
