Congress GOP QAnon WTF?!

Greene Dismisses Her Support For QAnon By Saying She ‘Got Sucked Into Things On The Internet’

Now that she’s helped get Kevin McCarthy elected as Speaker of the House and will soon be allowed back on congressional committees, Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (a.k.a. Marge the Bigot) wants us all to forget about the bizarre and disgusting things she’s said about the LGBTQ community, Jewish space lasers, and the QAnon cult that continues to predict Donald Trump will be restored to the presidency any day now.

The first step in Ms. Greene’s reputation rehabilitation took place Sunday on Fox News, where she was asked by host Howard Kurtz about her allegiance to bullshit conspiracy theories.

“But in fairness, didn’t you also say around that period that you’d been a follower of QAnon conspiracy theories and you had rethought this and you were no longer influenced by the group?” Kurtz asked.

Marge replied:

“Well, like a lot of people today, I had easily gotten sucked into some things I had seen on the internet. But that was dealt with quickly early on. I never campaigned on those things. That was not something I believed in. That’s not what I ran for Congress on. So, those are so far in the past.”

Got sucked into some things on the internet? So it’s the fault of the internet that Greene chose to believe that western governments are led and controlled by Satan-worshiping pedophiles who eat the brains and drink the blood of children? What sort of moron chooses to accept and spread such nonsense?

Here’s what else QAnon cultists believe. By extension, Greene made it clear she also believed these things, as documented by The Guardian:

  • QAnon also has its roots in much older antisemitic conspiracy theories. The idea of the all-powerful, world-ruling cabal comes straight out of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a fake document purporting to expose a Jewish plot to control the world that was used throughout the 20th century to justify antisemitism.
  • Participation in QAnon also often involves vicious online harassment campaigns against perceived enemies, which can have serious consequences for the targets.

Antisemitism. Online harassment. The dissemination of lies that harm others. That’s what QAnon and Greene support. But now we’re just supposed to forget about her past comments and pretend they never happened? We shouldn’t and we won’t.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is one of the most dangerous people in the U.S. Congress. And now she’s about to have even more power. That can’t be good for this country.

Joe Biden QAnon WTF?!

Child At QAnon Rally Says Biden ‘Kidnaps Children And Does Terrible Things To Them’

HBO has a new documentary that looks closely at the QAnon movement in the United States, and in one section of the film, entitled This Place Rules, a young boy at a rally insists that President Joe Biden kidnaps children and Hillary Clinton “made” the COVID-19 virus.

This Place Rules was shot in the months before the January 6, 2021 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, and listening to the QAnon faithful as they spin their bizarre conspiracy theories, it quickly becomes clear that there’s a group of people in this country who live in their own alternate reality.

The boy, named Jayden, is being interviewed when he starts to spin all sorts of wild theories as his parents watch and he screams to the rallygoers:

“Biden’s a child molester and he kidnaps children and does horrible things to them just like Hillary Clinton and Obama, who made the virus. The virus is man-made. It doesn’t exist. Kids need to be put back in school.”

Jayden is just getting warmed up, and he continues to rant.

“The people who are pulling the strings is the Italian Vatican. They actually are reptilian bloodlines from another planet. They’re basically robots.”

According to Jayden, people take a submarine to “Epstein island” so they can molest children.

Where did Jayden get these “facts”? He proudly proclaims they came from “dark stream media” and the “Trump media,” which is “telling all the truth.”

Later in the film, Jayden’s father shows the interviewer a QAnon board and claims he can show people how to decipher coded messages in Anderson Cooper’s broadcasts and the Chipotle logo.

This Place Rules airs December 30 on HBO.

Anti-Vaxxers QAnon WTF?!

QAnon Members Say Kirstie Alley Was ‘Assassinated’ Because She Was An Anti-Vaxxer

On Tuesday, the children of “Cheers” actress Kirstie Alley announced that their mother had died, issuing a statement which read:

“We are sad to inform you that our incredible, fierce and loving mother has passed away after a battle with cancer, only recently discovered.”

It was later reported that Alley had died as a result of colon cancer, with a rep telling People magazine that the late actress had indeed been diagnosed with the fatal disease.

But according to some in the QAnon cult, Alley was actually “assassinated” because she was opposed to COVID vaccines.

David Gilbert of Vice News reports:

On the QAnon message board the Great Awakening, members concluded that the sudden nature of Alley’s death was a clear sign that her death was part of a global plot to silence critics of the COVID vaccines. 

“I wholly believe the [deep state] has a way of dosing people with poisons that create aggressive cancers,” one member wrote. Another added: “She either just drew the short straw or she was poisoned by the Deep State for being a public Patriot.”

Yep, here we go again. The same people who believe world governments are control by a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles who eat the brains of children in order to stay young now think that Kirstie Alley was killed because she was an anti-vaxxer.

Alley, a vocal Trump supporter, had spread multiple conspiracy theories on her social media channels in recent years about COVID-19 and vaccines. She tweeted in October last year that until the vaccines “can prevent me from getting COVID or prevent you from getting it. I won’t be getting it and will ignore mandates to get it.. seems fair to me.”

Alley had also expressed her support of the QAnon movement, tweeting out this in October of 2020:

There’s also chatter that Alley was killed by the COVID vaccine, which she allegedly had to take before she was allowed to appear on “The Masked Singer.”

Some conspiracy theorists claimed on extremist message boards, as well as social networks like Truth Social, Gab, and Telegram, that because she had recently joined the cast of The Masked Singer Alley would have been “forced” to get a vaccine against her will. Others speculated, without any evidence, that she would have had to be vaccinated in order to receive treatment for her cancer.

Not batshit crazy enough for you? Well, consider that Alley was 71 when she died. But 71 reversed is 17 and the 17th letter of the alphabet is Q.

“Smells fishy,” a prominent QAnon group wrote on Telegram. “She’d been asking a lot of questions about official narratives. Funny thing, these fast acting cancers and celebs that don’t fall in line.”

What smells really fishy is the bullshit that gets passed off as “fact” by the QAnon cultists.

QAnon WTF?!

WATCH A QAnon Member Try To Explain Her Bizarre Conspiracy Theories

The QAnon crowd exists on what can most charitably be called a different plane of reality than the rest of the world, and yet when asked to explain their bizarre beliefs, it quickly becomes obvious that while they seem to genuinely believe their view of the world, logic doesn’t enter into their thinking.

The comedy duo “The Good Liars” found that out by interviewing supporters of failed, one-term former president Donald Trump who are also adherents to the QAnon worldview, and they shared some of their encounters with MSNBC on Sunday.

One woman told Jason Selvig of The Good Liars that it was actually Antifa who attacked the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

That led Selvig to ask:

“Wouldn’t we find out that all the people who were there were Antifa? They’ve all said they were Trump supporters, the people who were arrested.”

The woman told Selvig:

“No, I think the ones that were arrested were because they were there — are the ones that need to be released and the Antifa guys need to be in there.”

Selvig:

“How come though we haven’t found out that the people who identify as Antifa aren’t in jail? They all seem to be Trump supporters.”

Undaunted, the woman went on to explain:

“It’s all cover-up. It’s all a cover-up. I’m sorry, I just — I can’t say for sure who’s who, Okay? And who’s — what side they were on, but I’m telling you it was all set up.”

Speaking with MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian, Selvig noted that many QAnon members proudly say they “do their own research,” adding:

“And it always goes like that to your own research crowd at least informed. Some of the people I talked to, I asked when they said they did their own research if that meant they were looking up newspaper articles or academic reports or something like that. The answer is no. It’s mostly Instagram, Truth Social, where I guess you go to find the truth. But you get these head spin and conspiracy theories that, if you think about it for a couple minutes, they don’t make sense. How come, if Antifa were the ones storming the Capitol, how come none of them are in jail right now? How come there hasn’t been any report of these Antifa members as the ones that cause this whole thing? Basically, they are saying that things go so deep that you couldn’t possibly imagine.”

Donald Trump QAnon WTF?!

QAnon Cultists Claim A 2013 Episode Of ‘The Simpsons’ Proves Trump Will Soon Be Reinstated As POTUS

Did you know that failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump is about to be reinstated to the White House? You didn’t? Then you must have missed the message in a 2013 episode of “The Simpsons,” which members of the QAnon cult say is proof-positive that the Donald is headed back to the office of the presidency.

A report from Vice News reveals that something said by German lawmaker Friedrich Merz about the Russian invasion of Ukraine has set off a new wave of bizarre claims by the QAnon faithful.

In his speech, Merz misspeaks and says that everyone will remember where they were on September 24, rather than February 24, the day Russia invaded. Merz corrected himself in the official record of the Bundestag, but QAnon followers in Germany believed they’d spotted Merz revealing a detail of a secret plan. One member of a German Telegram channel pointed out that in episode 9 of Season 24 (9/24, Sept. 24, get it?) of the animated sitcom, the plot revolves around a group of preppers.

Preppers, as in doomsday preppers, who are convinced the end of civilization is just around the corner:

In particular, the characters discuss WROL, or Without Rule of Law, which is doomsday-prepper lingo for the complete breakdown of society after a major catastrophe. The episode also features an electromagnetic pulse device, which QAnon followers believe will usher in ’10 days of darkness’ and ultimately the return of former President Donald Trump to the Oval Office.

Got that? The breakdown of society, an electromagnetic device, days of darkness, and just like that Trump is back in office. How’s that for paranoid delusion?

Oh, and the latest bullshit conspiracy theory among the QAnon throngs even includes members of Donald Trump’s family, who have attended events where the the doomsday scenario was openly discussed.

Everything from nuclear armageddon to a financial reset to widespread water poisoning and an armed revolution has been predicted by those spinning these conspiracies to their followers. Last weekend, one of the speakers at the conspiracy-filled Reawaken America conference series, where Trump’s two adult sons have spoken in the past, told the audience that “the day of vengeance” was a week away, before adding: “We’re going to watch it happen.”

So then next time you watch what you think may be a harmless cartoon or laugh along as Homer Simpson gets his comeuppance, keep in mind there’s another message behind what you see, and it all leads to the fall of civilization and Donald Trump being president yet again.
