even if Biden does win a landslide - still very wishful thinking that the MAGA/Q crowd will accept it, ever.

Since you brought it up here, this is the person Trump congratulated today on her primary win:

But wait -- not only Islamophobic, racist, and anti-semitic; Qanon too:

Jackpot!


Have seen a sensible good friend go down the Qanon rabbit hole. So scary to see the change from rational human. Cult like.
Beginning to think is a form of mental illness - that need for super special insider special knowledge that makes you more "aware" than anyone else, that you then need to share and persuade everyone else of. Just like when some people get "religon". :evil:

I'm reminded more of the Ritual Satanic Abuse hysteria of the 1980's. A world-wide conspiracy of sex-trafficking pedophiles, who drink the blood of babies to stay young, but is made up of the most closely scrutinized groups of people, who simulanteously manage to keep it a total secret?

Absurd on the face of it, yet the same thing happened back then, when normally hard-headed prosecutors convicted people and sent them to prison, on no better evidence than testimony from children manipulated by "recovered memory therapists".

Otherwise sane people can get to the point where they overlook the obvious idiocies. One example from my own city: a self-styled "expert" on Satanism was listened to , despite her lack of grasp on reality. I read an interview with her, in which she estimated that 10% of residents practiced Satanism.

"Ten percent? That seems high".

"Well, five percent of adults, and five percent of children".

I doubt the Qtips will get as far, as it's associated with partisan politics. Still scary though, right enough.

it's all to do with a feeling of powerlessness. when you think you have the special secret insider gen on something, at least you feel like you are controlling something. These people need to start playing D&D. Kill a few Orcs.

I have seen it three times now and you’re are right: it is scary as hell.

I don’t know if you have ever read John Barnes’ meme wars scifi series, but that is the closest thing I could come to to how it looked like.

I don’t know about the super special insider knowledge, although that is certainly part of it. What I have noticed with all three of these people is that they felt themselves to be immense losers and two of them thought very highly of themselves as extremely intelligent. So I think it might be a combination of a feeling of frustrated entitlement and not being where you want to be in life. Something’s got to explain it and here come the Lizard People. And yeah, I think it is a new form of mass brain washing. Someone’s been able to virtualize Moonie techniques, somehow. Or better yet, David Koresh’s techniques.

One of the reasons I wargame. I can DEFINITELY see that sort of conspiracy thinking paranoia in myself. I think it is also one of the reasons I became an anthro: to gain the scientific skills to see more clearly what is possible, probable, and almost certain.

Cue RandyBill talking about my supposed obsession with death squads. My REAL beliefs on that topic are good case in point, however.

I know that I am no one’s target, yet. It’s possible that things could get that way. I can’t say if it is probable or not, but it seems unlikely. It is not only probable, however, but almost certain — backed up by solid empirical evidence — that friends of mine are on people’s kill lists. And it is very probable — again, almost certain — that the collateral violence of our local form of incipient fascism will threaten my life. This happened twice last year alone. Again, solid, empirical evidence.

To me, what is absolutely key to avoiding this is listening to a lot of different people — real people, and not just voices over the media — and hearing what they think of what you consider to be proof. That is what empiricism’s all about.

So you admit that you're a paranoid loon? We were right all along.
