As a long time member of ATS I became aware of QAnon same as everyone else, interested in such things, in 2017. I remember thinking at the time, Ok,
well if something is said that turns out to be true, then great.
Whatever... Love a whistleblower...
2018 went by. Trump did what he did. Q said some vague things that were specific enough to keep everyone interested. I remember thinking Q seemed to
be legit, because of correlations between the timing of drops and news stories like Russiagate and Pizzagate.
Just add ...gate became a thing too.
Anyway, in 2018 Q followers started getting noticed at rallies, in the press and Trump seemed to let on that he was aware. Throughout 2018 and into
2019 nobody took it seriously, at least nobody outside of conspiracy circles.
Maybe Q was real, but he wasn't saying anything of value. Always cryptic, and hey, oh so much fun Q drops promise the Trumpian promises, to drain the
swamp, to clean out the deep state. Pizzagate also provided Q the ability to give the cleanup of another conspiracy to Trump, namely the elite Pedo
In the winter of 2020 Q said, basically, The storm was happening. Meaning the round up of Pedo criminals was happening. I believe I remember
references to dominos falling. Alot of we old timers said, at the time, even here at ATS "this cannot be taken back"
Military movements in the us and some tweets made everyone think maybe the storm was coming. But the tweets were baseless and the movements were
Then the storm didn't happen, but according to Q, it never stopped. So, long story short (too late) I came to the conclusion that Q only exists to
provide a fictional narrative, making use of conspiracy theories, that makes Trump sound better than he is. Perhaps even, makes Trump sound like
something worth voting for. A hero, even.
And since I'm pretty sure this is very far from being the truth, Q is entirely irrelevant. Q is a marketing ploy that simply lies to you. The fact
that you believe the lie is not what makes you foolish, but rather that you continue to believe the lie when it is so obviously exposed.
