  1. Luckily for us, Americas corporatism has led to the life expectancy dropping(okay, maybe not so great). This means that most of Qanons base should be dead before 2024.

  2. THE MEDIA IS THE ENEMY – ITS CLEAR TO EVERYONE NOW – THE PROBLEM Q Oct 7 2020 14:14:58 (EST) How many people in DC does Clinton have dirt on? How many people in DC does Clinton have [had] on payroll?

    Dark secrets. Q

  3. I lean right and voted for Trump in 2016 (and Biden in 2020). Yeah, I admit I made a mistake the first time. People in my family contracted COVID-19, and many of us weren’t following guidelines. Trump also downplayed the virus and we took his word for it. I don’t like Biden much, but I do respect him and will respect the office of our current president. What the QAnon nutjobs did at the capital was disgraceful. And while I’m no fan of BLM, I can assure you that they would’ve had tanks drawn on them within minutes had they tried to storm the capital. They’d be lucky to make it through the front gate.

  4. The quarantine conspiracy debunked quickly

    So instead of believing that because rich pedophiles can’t get their baby blood fix they are looking worse

    Maybe it is because they can’t get to their make up people as well as haircuts and being able to get sun and talk to people?

  5. I'm really tired of people who don't accept the findings of the Warren commission being lumped in with conspiracy theory nuts. Watch the Zapruder film, read a little, like James Douglass' "JFK and the Unspeakable". Oswald WAS a patsy.

  6. It might be a bit harsh to write this off as "crazy" seeing that the whole world is experiencing a mental health crisis. These are PTSD signs. People with anxiety and paranoia that needs help. The impact of 2020 is highly underestimated. It's not hard to believe that people will fall for this nonsense after governments and institutions failed to protect them from a virus. There's no trust anymore.

  7. A friend of mine would disagree with non-QAnons.

    You can't fix a leaking boat. You can't teach the arrogant who use their ignorance is a barbaric battle cry. As an English teacher, I tried to teach her to make a logical argument. When you have a screw loose and you don't fix it time, all yer brains spill out.

    I've lost good friends who got hit with the stupid paddle. I can't believe we are still giving these people any power of the press.
