    Default Tell me what you think of the whole "Q" thing.

    OK... first let me explain. Last year, I was on chemo. Thing about chemo is that you physically canNOT do anything except sit in a chair and work the TV remote. The other thing about chemo is that you cannot concentrate for more than 10 or 15 minutes at a time. So I spent a lot of time on Youtube.

    1. I really think I believe in bigfoot... but not the woo-woo stuff about portals.
    2. Not convinced about little grey men from the UFO's.
    3. Not sure what to think about Q

    I'm sure a lot of Anon's are utter whack jobs. Other Anons are pretty good at synthesizing the Q-drops and they are fascinating. The left has spent an inordinate amount of time to marginalize the Q phenomenon... if it's as fringy as they want you to believe, (right up there with Elvis sightings) why spend so much time on it?

    Anyhow, wonder what you all think.

    What "Whole "Q" thing"?
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    I just found the 'Q' thing last week. Therefore, my time on it has been fairly small. Like most websites you have to be careful what you read and question everything you read on it. It is moderatly interesting to me so far. If I do not find more substance to it over the next couple of weeks, I will most likely stop looking at it!

    I am proud to say I have no idea what the “Q thing” is.

    Oh dear goodness. Google Qanon.

    Now, first let me tell you, you will see a LONG series of Youtubes that just gut the whole "Q conspiracy". Totally tin-foil hat, black helicopter, Illuminati, Bilderburger, non-sense don't you know. You'll find absolutely zero original Q posts (those in the know call them "drops".) You'll find very few Q-anon (i.e., followers who comment on Q) posts or Youtube channels. There used to be a lot of them. Not so much anymore. Been shut down.

    Heck, you can find all kinds of channels about the little grey men and Elvis sightings. Any crazy conspiracy you want to bring up. But the Anon's who used to chat back and forth about Q... gone.

    So, here's what I understand about it: (Watch, guys... if I suddenly get scrubbed from RTF you'll know that the men-in-black have found me in TX, confiscated my dogs and dragged me out of my little 19 foot travel trailer kicking and screaming in the middle of the night!)

    Ahem.

    Anyhow, here's what I get from the stuff about Q.

    "Q" is a designation for the highest security clearance. Hence the name. He (she or "they") began posting about the Deep State shortly after Trump came in to office. He/she/they might include the President himself. No one is sure. (I doubt it... he's got twitter. Subtlety is not his long suit if you know what I mean.) The posts are cryptic and open to interpretation but overtime a fairly obvious sort of code-speak has become consistent enough that most folks agree on what is being said. There have been drops that have been prescient and predate the events in the long-winding FBI hierarchy/CIA coup. (OTOH there are over 3,000 drops so even a stopped clock is right twice a day or some such.) Q and the Anon's keep talking about "The Great Awakening" which in their/his/her parlance is where the citizenry awakens to the fact that the Deep State has corrupted our government and media.

    There's probably a lot more to it than that. But that's a quick thumbnail. There's a guy that goes by Praying Medic on Youtube that does some of the Q drop synthesis. There are probably others but he's been able to stay on the channel.

    (If Praying Medic gets suicided we'll know it was my fault for mentioning his Youtube channel on Potus.)

    Thank you! I was 1 year post-chemo in October. That's about how long it took to get my energy back. Hair has come back too! (Some days not so sure that's a blessing. But God made hats for that, right!)

    I think that is the primary news source for CNN, MSNBC & Franco.
