It saves you thinking about things if you accept these looney theories. They explain everything.

Similar protests have been held all over the world, including in Australia even in Melbourne during the current lockdown. Berlin even has seen some of the largest.

Just what we need, a revival of the nazi cult but with Trump as its leader who will save the world. The GOP is embracing those QAnon supporters who are winning GOP primaries, giving them full support, and at least one of them will win a seat in the House in November’s election.

Scary stuff.

Gregory Stanton, founding president of Genocide Watch, said: “QAnon’s conspiracy theory is copied from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the conspiracy theory promoted by Hitler and the Nazi party in Germany.

“Its potential for the promotion of genocidal hatred is a deadly historical fact. The Protocols’ theory that Jews plan to take over the world, and are well on their way to doing so, has been an ideology and motivator for pogroms since the middle ages, and under the Nazis for the Holocaust. It is a conspiracy theory that has literally cost millions of lives. QAnon has revived the Protocols, complete with the Blood Libel, that the secret cabal kidnaps children, drains their blood and cannibalises them to gain mystical power.”

I would love to continue discussion but one of The Giant Lizards has just summoned me to an urgent errand. (See David Icke's Wikipedia pages)

People are feeling desperate from the stressfull 'second wave' of the Pandemic.

The demonstrations are more sad than potential for problem solving imo.

It will fizzle out like poured out coca cola eventually. The problem is they have too many issues all in the same pot, makes the Q less credible.

Some woman in Portsmouth walked up to my son today, entering the Asda with his face mask on, and told him he was "a pawn of the government".


With some presence of mind he told her not to vote for them again then.

Or, he could have talked into his imaginary walkie-talkie, called in a black helicopter to have her arrested.

I wish he'd thought of the walkie talkie thing. What on earth is the matter with people? Why do they so easily believe these bizarre conspiracy theories over the simple facts of virus transmission?

Silly bitch, needs a good kick up the clacker. Comprehensively outsmarted and outclassed by Little Lion though.

...or a symptom of people who need a good kick up the clacker.

You'd fit right in in New York City, in my experience

Just started the article, the author invokes Norman Cohn’s Pursuit of the Millennium. Remember that book?

He's a bit fed up with it though. There's too much of that sort of thing there, and it's a small town so difficult to find alternatives. He's thinking of transferring to Liverpool John Moores next year because people seem more cosmopolitan, he likes the bigger city, and, of course, girlfriend...
