Now the White Supremacists Go Fishing
Who knew? Apparently the QAnon crowd were expecting fireworks today in the form of Trump forces swooping down and arresting Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and their lackeys under a declaration of martial law. Only Trump bummed a free ride out of town and nobody showed up to put the cuffs on Deep State Biden. According to NBC news, the conspiracy theorists were crestfallen. They felt they had been betrayed, let down by a feckless Trump & Co.
Some of the QAnon crowd feel the whole business was a hoax. They had been punked.
But, when one door closes, another opens.
AI researcher Nick Backovic said that while it does appear many QAnon followers are giving up after this last failed prophecy, he has seen white supremacist recruiters “raid” QAnon groups with the explicit goal of recruiting disillusioned and hopeless conspiracy theorists.
“There are lots of people feeling shocked, cheated and angry. As scary as that is on its own, it’s the rest I’m most worried about,” Backovic said. “We’re seeing a lot of Neo-Nazis preying on the potentially disenchanted Q people.”
I expect outfits like the Boogaloo Bois, the Proud Boys, the Klan and others will find easy pickings among the QAnon casualties. They're perfect fodder for the cause. They're already conditioned to accept outlandishly crazy nonsense without the slightest shred of fact or evidence. They're gullible to the point of stupidity. They're angry. They're disillusioned. They're prepared, even looking forward to seeing people like Biden rounded up and executed. Some of them might even get fitted for explosive vests.
God bless America, indeed.
