As Trump’s Loss Sinks In: Will Gullible QAnon Cult Turn Their Rage Outward?
It’s both fun & easy to dunk on the QAnon gullible morons these days:
movementcynical, insane, out of control grift is imploding, and few amongst the sane & reality based will shed many tears over reading stories that begin with paragraphs like this:
For regulars on the internet forum 8kun, Election Day was supposed to be a revelation. President Donald Trump would win in a landslide, maybe sweeping all 50 states, in a glorious victory foretold by 8kun’s most famous user: the anonymous personality known as Q.
Instead, Trump lost, Q has gone silent, and one of 8kun’s main administrators has quit.
But. Serious question.
What do we do about MILLIONS of Americans that we have to live next to, tolerate as they spew hate & craziness in public places, as they spin more & more out of control in the weeks and months to come?
There are already multiple murders, kidnappings, and attempted terrorist actions associated with QAnon. And if you know anything about the pathology of a cult, you know that as they get cornered, they get increasingly extreme and prone to violence. If we’re lucky, this will be limited to the “Purple Kool-Aid” scenario, whether it be quick … or over time as they drink and OD themselves to early graves.
However, if they turn their rage, frustration and delusion outward, there will be an increase in cultists striking out against the targets of rage. First, the voting centers & employees that denied their Savior and Dear Leader his rightful victory. Then against elected Democrats, who they are convinced are child cannibal trafficker Satanists.
Inevitably, QAnon will turn on those they blame for misleading them. Which is when things might get … interesting … for elected GOP officials. If they’re not concerned about their own supporters rising up against those who lied to them every step of the way, they should be.
