I'm going to do what others refuse to do and call out BS. It's flooding ATS and I'm yet to see anybody call it out like it is.
Let's get down to the points I'll be focusing on. 1. Who is Qanon?
2.What is all this huffpuff and hooblah all about?
and 3.Is this
something people should care about and take seriously?
To start, in October of last year an anonymous user by the name of 'Qanon' began posting cryptic messages on a website called 4Chan and claimed to
be a high-level government insider with Q clearance .
I'm going to break down the above for some of you here.
He's an anonymous
user who claims
to be a high level government insider.
He started posting on an alt-right forum called 'Politically Incorrect' on 4Chan.
A website notorious for
spreading Alt-right conspiracy theories.
4Chan sub forums were also responsible for spreading the now debunked
The above itself should ring alarm bells. It's also very indicative of the bias from many posters on here who expect us to just ignore the above, but
listen to their complaints about anonymous sources
used on other major, non-alt right
So what more about Qanon? His claims are fantastical
He (or she) claims that Trump is following some Masterplan to fight the Deep State. Apparently Trump is a terrific mastermind and it's all a show.
Trump was never involved with Russia
Obama and Clinton are actually being investigated by Mueller
It goes on.
Look I don't expect you to even believe what I've posted. According to Q there's a
coming and all these corrupted Democrats will be arrested
(including the big ones) and Trump will be vindicated. It's going to happy soon
so you're welcome to just wait it out. Time will prove so.
That being said, if you're going to follow somebody so closely, you should have enough respect for your own intelligence to ensure this is a person
of some authority and credential. This Q individual clearly doesn't. For all anybody knows this could be a 15 year old kid getting his rocks off in
his basement by all the attention he's receiving.
On a final note, let's remember one thing:
It’s been a little over a year since Edgar Welch, military-style assault rifle in hand, walked into a D.C. pizza parlor, convinced it was part
of a child sex-trafficking ring run by Hillary Clinton, and the internet hasn’t gotten better. If anything, it’s worse.
It's all fun and games on the internet, until somebody becomes so indoctrinated and takes it to the next level. Qanon isn't doing a positive service
at all and neither are those spreading his fantastical claims.
We've had all sorts of anonymous sources come and go on ATS. None of their fantastical claims panned out. We should know better. Or at least
to be better.
