That is a surpriseJanuary 7, 2021 Tim WorstallSex13 CommentsMs Babbit’s husband did not travel to Washington, DC with her.

Simon Jester January 7, 2021 at 5:52 pm @dearieme: If he did, it isn’t recorded on his Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lon_Horiuchi dearieme January 7, 2021 at 7:07 pm @SJ: I’ve had a quick Google and conclude that you are right. I did discover something about him I didn’t know: he took part in the Waco massacre too. It’s a wonder he didn’t end up with two medals. Ottokring January 7, 2021 at 7:33 pm As an experiment I have put up a picture of Ashli Babbit on my Instagram feed. It is attracting some real looney tunes who are obviously just surfing looking for the hashtag, nearly all noticeably have private accounts. bloke in spain January 7, 2021 at 7:48 pm I’d be very interested to hear Dennis or Gamecock’s views on QAnon. I just don’t trust the media. Does it even seriously exist? Or is it like all the other “scary right wing groups” they & the police are obsessed with amount to two men & a dog posting on Twatter from their bedrooms? Jim January 7, 2021 at 8:10 pm “QAnon.

Because all their ‘activists’ are backed by massive pools of dark money provided by the likes of Soros etc they assume their opponents are similarly endowed and accuse them thusly. When in reality as you say its most like a few blokes living in grotty bedsits or motel rooms. Boganboy January 7, 2021 at 11:55 pm I’d be interested myself, BIS. When I first saw mention of QAnon, I did a bit of a search to try and find out something about it. All I could dig up were a few bleats about the wicked rightist conspirators. bloke in spain January 8, 2021 at 6:27 am And it’s notable that although there’s been several opinion pieces on events in Washington in the Torygraph this morning, readers’ comments on them are apparently not welcome. Presumably this is a subject we should be told what to think rather than be asked what we think. bloke in spain January 8, 2021 at 7:12 am Posted without comment: https://banned.video/watch?id=5ff63502f23a18318ceb28a7 Bloke in Wales January 8, 2021 at 8:06 am When in reality as you say its most like a few blokes living in grotty bedsits or motel rooms. I just assumed it was 4chan having a laugh and winding up the dinomedia. Mal Reynolds January 8, 2021 at 9:02 am QAnon was a conspiracy originally – I remember when it first started on 4chan and someone who claimed to be in the US government detailed a plan for a series of mass arrests of people like Hillary Clinton and various paedo rings. This was further fueled by various “accurate” predictions that this Q person made (to my mind they seemed more like the “accurate” predictions that a astrologist, psychic or economist would make). This was 2016/2017 though. The media only seemed to have caught on last year and suddenly decided that QAnon believers are terrorists which seems like a bit of an overreaction to a group of people who are essentially passive readers of “Q drops”. Unless there was something to Q’s information… then the hostility makes more sense. BlokeInBrum January 8, 2021 at 1:33 pm 4chan /pol has form for trolling the legacy media. They probably did more than anyone else (online) to get people aware of Trump with some god level memeing in the run-up to 2016. Since then a lot of time, effort and money has been expended by the left to neutralise the threat that they pose. It may sound a bit tinfoil hat, but there are various groups with many sockpuppet and bot accounts that post there with the aim of burying threads with irrelevant rubbish (slide threads). I reckon the whole QAnon thing was originally a 4Chan larp that took on a life of its own. However /pol is now a battleground of various factions and is a shadow of its former self with many of it’s posters bought and paid for trolls.
