The Q people can't figure out what they think of the virus. I've seen Q followers put forth the following theories within minutes of each other without mentioning, and presumably without even noticing that the theories conflict:

But they're all still very confident that the virus proves QAnon is true.

These people are remarkable. They are the perfect illustration of why there’s little point engaging with conspiracy theorists because all possible facts serve to confirm their paranoid beliefs. Supporting evidence supports. Rebutting evidence is clearly fabricated therefore also supports. It’s like a religion.

It very much is a religion. If you look up /u/kusuriurikun/ on reddit, he can be a little verbose, but he grew up in the New Apostolic Reformation movement, and he frequently discusses how NAR and the Dominionist movement absorbed Satanic Panic as a doctrine, and after Q many of them have essentially accepted Q as doctrine as well. In fact, he argues (pretty convincingly in my opinion) that the original Q grifter was probably a member of an NAR group. Much of the Q conspiracy theory lines up with NAR millenialist beliefs. He still has contact with people in the movement, and he says that people in NAR groups are actively cross-recruiting individuals into Q and visa versa. At it's core, QAnon is Christian apocalypse cult.

But over time it has drawn in New Age and UFO conspiracy theorists as well, so it is sort of a hodge podge, but even for these Q followers, it is really a religion. The Q followers I know are very fervent in their belief that it is their mission to preach Q to people, like missionaries.

Also, in case anyone doesn't know, the FBI identified these guys as potential domestic terrorists.

I think many people feel relativity small and insignificant relative to world events. They become so abstracted to cause and effect that fear is literally intoxicating. That is why emotionally engaging propaganda is so poignant to those minds.

Thanks for that. A fascinating though somewhat disturbing read

Imagine if this had happened while Obama was president. Remember the paranoia about the FEMA camps?

I have a crazy conspiracy that the rich are going to rob us blind since they were making their money from being over leveraged again. That some banks and rich people were leveraged over 15 times in the London Bond Market like in 2008. They did this by recollateralizing your money and investments multiple times through shell corporations and banks trading them back and forth. In secret these lizard people will blackmail the government saying if one of them goes down the entire global economy will be exposed as a Ponzi scheme and all the rich will be bankrupt. They will then steal trillions of public money that could have gone to workers and services. All because rich bankers were allowed to scam the system buying 15 bonds with only the money for one.

Crazy theory right?

Nemo, that’s absurd. How could something like that be possible in our well-regulated economy? It’s about as likely as, say, companies demanding money from the government in return for not firing workers, then handing that money to their shareholders and firing the workers anyway. Things like this simply can’t happen in our entrepreneurial democracy.

Is it him or his son that has it?

He should be ashamed citing nonsense numbers like that. The morality numbers in the US are meaningless. You are only classified as dead from this is you were diagnosed premortem.

From the perspective of risk to any individual life - he is right, other things kill more people. But as a doctor he should understand the implications of the healthcare system simply being overwhelmed by cases of a highly contagious disease.

Nancy Pelosi, George Sorros, and the Deep State deliberately started the pandemic to embarrass the President and eliminate as many Fox News viewers as possible before the election.

I understand this topic is fun. But everybody should be aware that sarcasm is difficult to understand online. So, if the factual discussion is done, we should leave it at this now.
