I really like this take on QAnon.

    While it's almost impossible to prove who started QAnon, there is some evidence that it was meant to be a prank all along. And more importantly, it's looking more and more likely that QAnon is actually a prank by leftists or anarchists to make the far-right look deranged.

    An experiment in social engineering using fascists as guinea pigs.

Unfortunately at this point I think they could pull a full-on Jimmy Kimmel twerk video reveal and it would be seen as just another antifa COINTELPRO operation or some shit.

Oh wow. I hadn't heard of Luther Blissett but fuckin' hell if that doesn't read exactly like SomethingAwful.

....wait... what if SomethingAwful were FSB all along...!

Apropos of nothing, my father has a Q clearance. He did radiation monitoring. My landlord had a Q clearance. He did theoretical physics. My boss had a Q clearance. She did HR for X Division. My grandmother had a Q clearance. She was a telephone switchboard operator in the '60s. I was there one day when the FBI came to interview her about giving a woman she babysat as a girl a Q clearance because she was going to be maintaining the van fleet. I myself do not have a Q clearance because I got the hell out of town but I got an ex-girlfriend and a couple buddies with Q clearances. You don't need to be Ethan Hunt you just need to not be Anwar al-Awlaki.

    Things got even more intense a week after the Tucson incident, when Matthew P. Wright (above right) was arrested after he drove an armored vehicle onto a bridge spanning the Hoover Dam and blocked traffic to demand the government "release the OIG report," a call spouted by QAnon believers.

Also, I now want an armored car. I've been wasting my life looking at ex-Warsaw Pact APCs when perfectly good American-made SWAT vehicles are available to me. Thanks, citizen!
