During my normal dredge through conspiracy theory social media, I stumbled on this tweet from a diehard QAnon believer detailing all of the people she claims to have told about the anonymous conspiracy avatar.
Walked the dog .. told someone about Q✔️ Went Christmas shopping .. told someone about Q✔️ Out in the front yard .. told someone about Q✔️
Who are you telling?
GET THE WORD OUT!
MSM is the GREATEST THREAT for when the TRUTH is exposed!!
Assuming this is true (and it’s Twitter, so you never really know), I can only imagine all of the blank stares that greeted this person as she ambushed random strangers with her enthusiasm for Donald Trump’s supposed plan to purge America’s enemies in a spasm of extra-judicial violence.
For a conspiracy theory that’s been marked by a litany of failed predictions, disappointments, de-platforming, and infighting between factions; QAnon remains remarkably popular.
This is the theory that Trump is about to unleash a massive wave of indictments against the deep state, and anonymous Trump administration official known only as Q is leaking foreknowledge of events to acolytes on far right social media.
And despite the endless exhortations that the great purge of America’s enemies is coming “next week” or “soon,” none of these arrests or events have materialized.
According to open source reporting and social media, at this very moment, Russia is in the midst of a massive military buildup on their border with Ukraine.
Russia is amassing military hardware on the Ukraine border and starting an expansive online disinformation campaign spreading false flag theories. The world needs to wake up to Putin’s moves before it’s too late for our important ally.
Hundreds of tanks, likely thousands of troops, and God only knows what kind of firepower are massing. And they’re being given a pretext thanks to Russia’s now-familiar preliminary bombardment of fake news, allegations, and disinfo.
I want to answer a question that I’m asked over and over again: are there any conspiracy theories that turned out to be true?
That is, are there any popularly held beliefs that a group of powerful people secretly worked together to do something harmful, that were later proven with compelling evidence to be real?
You apparently didn't read the interview you're condemning. In it, I said: “Conspiracy theories are really exciting. Sometimes, even, they’re true – there are groups of people working together in secret for some particular end. I don’t think any rational person can dispute that."
The death of former president George H.W. Bush on Friday marked the first passing of a POTUS in the social media age.
It also marked the first death of a president in the age of the instant internet conspiracy – a place where the secret misdeeds of the powerful aren’t whispered about in free pamphlets and public access TV shows, but by millions of people with instant access to each others’ lamebrained opinions.
George Bush Sr. was a prominent member of the Skull and Bones society. Here he is circled in red. Keep this in mind and watch who pays tribute. Then you might see a certain network revealing itself. #insight#maga#qanonpic.twitter.com/diUtVbsDep
