How did it go so Horribly Wrong for QAnon?

January 21, 2021

Disappointment and confusion has descended upon the members of QAnon, the peculiar movement that’s convinced a cabal of Satan-worshipping Democrats, celebrities and billionaires are secretly running the world while overseeing a global pedophilic human-trafficking scheme.

QAnon supporters were convinced that the inauguration of Joe Biden as President of the United States would trigger a kind of “doomsday event” that would culminate with the arrest of senior Democrats and see Donald Trump reinstalled as President for a second term.

But the doomsday scenario didn’t transpire.  

Trump, now a former one-term, twice-impeached president is in Florida, and President Joe Biden is in the Whitehouse.

Screenshots of bewildered and disillusioned QAnon supporters spread across social media with one believer posting a comment titled “Anyone else feeling beyond let down now?” with a description that said:

“It’s like being a kid and seeing the big gift under the tree thinking it is exactly what you want only to open it and realize it was a lump of coal the whole time.”

Others said they felt “sick,” and “sad and confused” as the inauguration of President Biden went off without a hitch.

 Some QAnon supporters attempted to ‘recalibrate’ their doomsday theory suggesting that the installation of Biden as President is in fact, part of Trump’s carefully orchestrated plan to take down the global cabal of pedophilic Satan’s worshippers.

“The more I think about it, I do think it’s very possible that Biden will be the one who pulls the trigger,” said one.

    So, Biden is actually a double agent?

    Or trump is secretly so powerful, he’s actually pulling the strings?

    Or does it go deeper than the tunnels of luv?

    “So, Biden is actually a double agent?

    Nah! That was Putin’s Puppet Trump:

    “Former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, and House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, have suggested that Donald Trump might have been in contact with Russian president Vladimir Putin on the day of the deadly riots at the US Capitol, and called for a “9/11-type commission” to investigate the events of 6 January.

    Speaker Pelosi was in conversation with Ms Clinton for the podcast ‘You and Me Both’ on Monday, when the former secretary of state said she would love to see Mr Trump’s phone to see if he had been talking to Mr Putin on 6 January — the day of the riots.”

    It doesn’t seem possible to have a day we can all celebrate together as Australians.
    Australian society is being divided into various competing victim groups by grievance-mongers and victim-pimps.

    The original leftist project of creating enmity by encouraging the so-called class struggle has morphed into new and ingenious ways of getting people to hate each other. We have new reasons for outrage manufactured by the minute. This is followed by banshee mobs demanding retaliation and cancellation.

    Maybe the WuFlu pandemic is a struggle that we all share. The trouble is that some state leaders have decided to put their states first and bugger the rest of Australia.

    Maybe we should just change the name to “Fuck Australia Day”. At least the radical left should be happy with that.

    Well if i can butt in i will tell you

    In Australia the radical left dropped our borders in 2008 encouraging 50,000 boat people to come here from 2008-2013. They did this because ALP/Greens do not believe in borders and want a borderless world run by the UN

    Of those 8,469 were children. Gillard in 2012 even sent young children to Manus Island to be used as human shields when even she understood that borders may be important

    The left want a borderless world ruled by the UN

    A speaker at the event, Gwenda Stanley, told a crowd of more than 500 people that it was time Indigenous Australians were given proper reparations.

    “A million dollars for each black person,” she said.

    “Don’t be fooled by the Uluru statement from the arse. Let’s do reparations before treaty. A million dollars for each black person and than (sic) we can talk treaty.”

    On Tim Dunlops blog in 2007 i was told the “lying rodent” introduced a new rule to determine unemployment. Work one hour/week and you are employed. And that is why unemployment went from 8% to 4% under Howard because as PM from 1996-2007 he manipulated the way unemployment is measured

    Why is $750,000 of tax payers money being thrown away on a Holocaust Memorial in Canberra, Joshie?”

    I’m sure Jeremy Corbyn and Nazis everywhere are asking the same question.

    The Memorial is clearly money well spent. We don’t want to end up like France where Jews are fleeing the country due to the rise of violent anti-Semitism.

    It also flushes out closet anti-Semites who slither out of the shadows to reflexively attack anything that might cast Jews in a sympathetic light – such as Germany’s attempt to exterminate them.

    One aspect of derivatives is that you can have more, say, short positions than underlying stock. All you need is a willing counterparty. This was a major reason for the scale of the 2007 crisis. In the present case the short positions were 150% of the GME shares on issue.

    Because the market manipulation of the hedge funds didn’t work out as planned, Wall street has panicked and demands the regulators investigate, not the hedge fund manipulators, but the ordinary punters who had a win for once. The outcome should not be too hard to guess when you see how the Treasury Secretary gets her loose change:

When he didn’t return 20 minutes later, a security manager sent to investigate found the pair together in what authorities are describing as an inappropriate encounter, one in which physical distancing wasn’t maintained.”

    In relation to Mr Dutton I want to make this point. He is the Minister for Home Affairs. They have the responsibility for quarantine under the Constitution.

    But he does not want to do that. So therefore, it has fallen to the states to perform the role that Mr Dutton should be performing under the Constitution.

    So he should not be criticising when we are doing the task he should be performing.

    Under the Constitution, section 15 quarantine, it is the responsibility of the Commonwealth.

    Defence bases, Christmas Island, sometimes very remote places and they are not doing it and refused to do it so therefore the state is doing it so I urge Mr Dutton not to be a critic.

    Maybe you can tell me about the coup, Tom R. I get that a small fraction of the 250,000 marchers violently attacked the Capitol. Unlike you and your unwillingness to condemn Antifa/BLM violence I am equally condemnatory of the violence at Capitol Hill (including the execution of the unarmed young woman). What I don’t see is an attempt to install an alternative government as was done in Seattle. I see all Republicans condemning the violence and none refusing to condemn it.

    OTOH I see a refusal by most Democrats to condemn Antifa and plenty of incitement from them.

    In the US Charter schools provide an opportunity for poor and minority students to escape the hell-hole public schools controlled by and run for the benefit of woke teacher unions.

    Naturally, Biden loves teacher unions and hates the thought of poor minorities getting a useful education and a path out of poverty. Biden’s opposition of Charter schools is just a continuation of his race-baiting anti-bussing stance. Same old dog, same old tricks.

    wasteful use of public funding for little or no benefit to students

    segregation of students based on race and class.

    Why is that? I do believe that burning coal used to produce some toxins other than CO2 like sulphur dioxide. And CO2 is not a toxin.

    If you burn coal properly the only so-called toxin produced is CO2 i think. But even if not true any form of energy produces toxins. Solar panel waste is a major problem for example

    Do you think the cover-up of an alleged rape should call for @ScottMorrisonMP, @lindareynoldswa or @SenatorCash to resign or be sacked?

    I’ve got a question for you, Mad Fucking Witches: If the alleged rape was reported to the police almost immediately, where was the coverup?

    That is precisely what the reptilian Raskin failed to demonstrate. He was reduced to relying on forged evidence and outright lies to advance his ridiculous case.

    The Demonrats were stupid to restrict themselves to a single charge of incitement. Dereliction of duty would have given them a slightly more plausible case to argue which would have been less humiliating for them.

    I’m not sure about facebook, I don’t facebook, but, speaking from the google perspective, google are actually providing the media companies with free advertising, and the media companies now want google to pay them for advertising for them

    That’s just all kinds of fucked up

    Of course, if the media companies don’t want google to track them, they simply add a tag to their scripts

    Tom R, this reminds me of back when record companies started to charge radio stations royalties for playing records despite the protestations of the stations which claimed they were promoting the songs. The promotional benefits of airplay is demonstrated by the fact that record companies and artists employed pluggers” to gain airplay for their records and still do.

    “Mr Passmore, 33, and Mr Lloyd, 31, are record pluggers. “We take an artist’s music to radio stations on behalf of record labels or management and try to convince them to support that artist,” Mr Passmore says. The ultimate aim is to get a song on to the roster of 30 to 40 songs that play throughout the day on national UK broadcasters, such as BBC Radio 1 or Capital FM.”

    It seems a bit circular – making the radio stations pay for using the song and then schmoozing them to play the song.

    Yes, it’s all a bit crook.

    But google aren’t playing the entire song/ showing the entire article. They are providing a link, which in your scenario, would be akin to the radio station telling people there was a new song, and playing a snippet.

    Pretty that’s called advertising. And people pay big biccies for it

    So maybe the best way to analyze it is that it is a transaction under which both parties benefit. Maybe the big tech vultures should pay for the copy they link to and sell adds off of.

    The issue is essentially about hyperlinks. If Google cut and paste the news report into their page instead of linking it then they could be forced to pay under existing law.

    Oh Tom R, this is all a bit sad. Politicians of both sides lie. It is hard to tell them apart when it comes to this*. Yet you are so committed to the ALP side of things that you seem to lose perspective and can only see the mote in the other side’s eye.

    This reminds me of the Craig Thomson saga where it took you forever to admit that a court of law did in fact find that Thomo rooted whores. Your bias did not allow you to see the bleeding obvious.

    Your incoherent reply was:

    Of course, if you are happy for an acknowledged liar to continue to lie his face off to you, daily, then so be it.

    Now please tell me how what I said could be construed as being happy for Morrison to lie to me. Every comment I’ve made about Morrison in recent times has been critical. I don’t like the fucker. He is almost as bad as John Howard and Malcolm Turdball were.

    The difference between us is that I call out both sides when I think they are misbehaving whereas you deploy your considerable talents attacking one side and praising the other. Maybe it is just a game you play to see if you can defend the indefensible.
