Conservatives sure love them some untethered conspiracy theories. The best part is they think governments are incompetent to do things like administer nationwide healthcare, but sophisticated enough to carry out conspiracies.

This conspiracy is so laughably ridiculous, it’s difficult to see how anyone could believe it. Then you see the interviews. “Oh, those people....”

Conspiracy theories are ignorant people’s way to feel smart. Conservatives have a lower rate of education than liberals.

Conspiracies to commit crimes are far different than conspiracy theories. You should stick to Building 7 conspiracy theories.

Jim Watkins, the pig-farmer / porn producer running 8chan and said by some to be Q itself has, and who like Trump, JZ Knight (the 'channeler' for a 35,000 year old being) and so many other con-males and -females has found how easy it is to PT Barnum America's and now the world's intellectually vulnerable.

Not surprising that the Kremlin's troll armies along with Ankara's and Beijing's have used 'western' media to further rile the 'west's' most vulnerable and have got many to believe what they need is an authoritarian to guide and protect them. Xi, Putin and Erdogan 'love the poorly educated'.

This conspiracy is so laughably ridiculous, it’s difficult to see how anyone could believe it.

QAnon is the latter-day version of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the anti-Semitic tract that originated in Russia at the end of the 19th. century. It slowly percolated around the world until it reached the US where Henry Ford printed up 500,000 copies and distributed them to his factory workers. It was a fake, yet millions of people around the world believed it and still do. QAnon may seem like unhinged nonsense to us but its spread just shows how little has changed in the last 100 years.

The big difference this tube is how quickly the internet spreads this nonsense. But your are right to draw parallels with the anti-Semitism movement - this is far more dangerous than moon landing conspiracies, and far more ridiculous.

"the pandemic is a conspiracy by a cabal of satanist pedophiles who control the world."

Incredible that folks can believe in such nonsense in this day and age. Satanist Pedophiles ha. It's obvious that coronavirus is of extraterrestrial origin and was accidently released into the human population when biological research was being conducted on captive green aliens who were in cryogenic sleep.

A failure of education along with the pathology of wanting to appear more intelligent than you actually are.

The sad part is that these clowns are now using the previously positive ‘free thinkers’ to describe themselves.

Certainly, there are well off , rich pedophiles, protected and secretive.

Prince Andrew and various British MPs have proven this to be.

What was Bill Clinton and Bill Gates doing on the ‘Lolita Express’?

What is Bohemian Grove where prayers are given to Moloch - the Canaanite God?

What is Agenda 21?

There are many facts about how the underlings are being exploited and treated and not all is fiction...

Well, as a Trump supporter, I don't think these are conspiracy theories? Heck, this is the cold hard truth - right from the most credible people out there...8-chan, Russia Today, Newsmax....

I mean, we all know COVID is caused by 5G network towers, that chemtrails in the sky are the Deep State's effort to deliver a mind control drug to everyone, and that those forehead temperature readers are really implanting Bill Gates microchips into all of us - TRUTH PEOPLE!

And this will all be revealed after Trump win's in Nov - by Trump's new White House spokesman; Elvis...

@Busby

It would also be intriguing to know exactly why future presidents and captains of industry dress up in robes and pray in front of an owl figurine every July in California, in a secret ceremony?

This is the oddest phenomenon I’ve heard of since critical race theory. This is so over the top it has to be a huge troll. The mainstream media sure are taking it seriously.
