It's vast, multifaceted and ongoing and therefore hard to summarize. But I think a good way to describe it is to say it's an online alternative for the proliferation of narratives to those pedalled by mainstream media outlets, most of which are quite obviously going all out to destroy Donald Trump and everything he stands for. The fundamental claim of the mysterious "Q" dude, dudette -- or maybe even team of dudes and dudettes -- is that he (I'll use the singular for brevity) is in Trump's inner circle. Very high up in the military, he's privy to quite possibly the bigliest resistance plan ever conceived; an epic, byzantine, ball-tearer of a strategy several decades in the making that is currently being waged on several fronts including information war and which aims to finally free the USA, and ultimately the world, from elite globalist domination.
Sounds far-fetched, I know ... But if you're not the kind of drooling brainwashed muppet who still totes believes we're in the midst of a "climate emergency" and that Epstein did actually kill himself, and you have actually followed the drops and decodes for the last coupla years, then you would have to conclude that at the very least Q is not just some smartarsed LARP (live action roleplay), and that POTUS himself is aware of the whole thing and playing along. I don't wanna get into all the details of why I say that because there have been literally thousands of drops so far and hundreds of "Q proofs". You could write a whole series of books about the phenomenon and its manifold ramifications, and there are already some good ones available.
The crucial point here is that the MSM in America have been writing numerous hit pieces about this for many months because they are desperate to get the normies to stay away and keep believing their fake news instead. Yet not one of their so-called journalists has done the obvious and professional thing if he were actually interested in the truth: ask Trump about Q and his claim to be connected to him. This glaring omission already easily makes it the biggest story in the history of journalism -- by far. (BTW, Martin Geddes has other good insights on his site, just linked. Also, Neon Revolt is prolly the most prolific decoder of drops and he has a fine book on the subject available from his site.)
As I mentioned, it's mainly a US phenomenon. But there have actually been two hit pieces written about prominent Aussie followers (and decoders) of the mysterious, often cryptic drops. The latest one involves Sydney psychiatrist Dr Russell McGregor.
This guy had his career nuked in a deeply sinister way quite a while ago merely because he was tweeting and blogging about the phenomenon so it's significant that the fake news peddling robodolts at The Guardian have deemed it necessary to add salt to the wound by widely publicizing the episode now. They are terrified of losing whatever authority they have left so they are clearly trying to make an example of him.
As you can see from this screenshot (which I took on Friday arvo, the day the story was published) the piece has been massively popular. There's clearly a helluva lot of interest in this phenomenon and this explains why they felt the need to run it. Aussie normies are waking up en masse to just how full of bollocks the so-called "reporting" of MSM outlets (the more left-leaning ones in particular) actually is, and has been for yonks. They are doing what so many of their counterparts in the USA have been: looking elsewhere online for the real story. More and more of them are finding out about Q and preferring the alternative narrative that the movement offers.
So, in predictably mean-spirited, brutal fashion The Guardian is basically saying: "Nothing to see here folks, move along ... Just look at the kind of wingnuts who buy this BS. They're all batshit crazy, like this guy!"
I'm no legal expert but it seems to me that Dr McGregor already has a pretty solid case for defo. You'll notice in the screenshot above that while QAnon is mentioned in the title and body of the article, the two opening paragraphs carefully sidestep this crucial aspect, instead saying he "posted 'bizarre' alt-right conspiracy theories he claimed were the directives of US President Donald Trump". This combined with the spooky visual image clearly portrays Dr McGregor in a very bad light (pun intended) and thereby convey a strong, emotive warning -- "Danger! Danger! Psychotic Loon Alert!" -- that is meant to colour all the subsequent details included. (So ironic that the hands on the keyboard are glowing green, BTW. That tragically warmist outlet is chockas with shrub humping ecotards itself ... Hell, the simpering soyboys on staff have the greenest hands of all. And their footwear? Ginormous clown shoes so grotesquely garish they'd make even Ronald McDonald weep with envy!)
Notice that the sneering hipster lefties' fave term for instant demonization "alt-right" is also employed, prominently and repeatedly. This term is shorthand for racist, as this article makes clear.
Yet nowhere in Dr McGregor's tweets or blog have I ever seen any support for white supremacy at all. On the contrary, he clearly abhors the concept, as his pinned tweet (which has been up there for as long as I've been aware of his Twitter profile) clearly shows. He's a civic nationalist, if anything.
Not only that, Q himself is at pains to remind those in the movement to rise above all identity politics because the real enemy is the globalist deep state who "want you divided". The unifying phrase "Where we go one we go all" is constantly repeated throughout his drops.
There's another howler in the hit piece's second paragraph -- the bit about the doc believing 9/11 was "faked". I suspect that this is because Josh Taylor, who penned the piece, lazily interpreted the term "false flag" to mean that the whole event was staged. This is a common error for activists purporting to be journalists, particularly comparatively inexperienced ones like little Josh.
Then there's the bit about the ABC "covering up the crimes of the elite". The mysterious online inspiration of this claim aside, is this really such an outlandish view to have in the wake of the deeply suss MSM coverage of the Epstein "suicide" and the way Amy Robach (of the ABC in the US) had her expose so savagely memory-holed, then our (or rather, their) ABC begrudgingly, briefly reporting this while carefully omitting the Clinton connection -- which Ms Robach so clearly explicated in the Project Veritas tape itself -- while simultaneously beating up the non-link to Trump? If that's not a media cover-up then what is?
And for anyone who still insists that the "deep state" is merely a figment of gun-toting wingnuts' febrile imaginations, what about former CIA big wig John McLaughlin actually praising its existence in so many words during the sham impeachment trial?
BTW, those following Q knew long ago that this desperate charade would ultimately come to nought. That was the obvious outcome when all its puppets had Schiff for brains, after all. Yet if you actually believed the fake news coming out of their ABC and much of the rest of the local MSM you would've believed that Trump really was a goner this time; that he'd finally be gruesomely impaled for all the world to see like a shishkebab on Pelosi's savage High Heel of Democrat Justice!
But of course that didn't happen. Just like with the "Russian collusion" narrative (which many in the MSM still cling to, BTW) the whole thing turned out to be a big fat nothing burger instead. This outcome, among many other things, would surely make any sane, rational adult conclude that while the "conspiracy theory" espoused by Dr McGregor might seem a tad OTT, it's certainly more plausible than the massively fraudulent "Orange Man Bad" line the MSM have been running since Trump was elected.
Also, elite pedophile rings are most definitely a thing, and Trump has been methodically taking them down since very early on in his presidency, even though his deranged haters in the MSM don't want you to know about that.
About the only thing that based folk might think is completely beyond belief is the "Satanic" aspect. Yet if you take this in the general sense to mean evil, it's actually entirely in keeping with the rest of the narrative, elements of which are not just plausible but indisputable fact. What could possibly be more evil than trafficking, raping and killing children, after all!
So you've gotta ask: why would such online speculation by a mental health professional be deemed so alarming to TPTB that they would require he be deregistered for it, then publicly shamed in an absolutely putrid hit piece several months later?
Answer is pretty obvious, IMHO ... But have a look at the piece in question, then compare it with the target's Twitter thread on it and make up your own mind.
Also, remember that this was the second local Guardian hit piece on this subject. The first one was used to slime a long time mate of ScoMo's who was another prominent local QAnon believer.
They are very similar in tone, with the titles and introductions in particular containing the same key words and phrases, eg: "QAnon, conspiracy theory, bizarre." Do a search for them in Google or any other search engine and you'll see how many MSM hit pieces just like this come up.
Also, they almost invariably claim that the theory is "debunked" when this is clearly not the case at all. As mentioned before, not one reporter has directly asked Trump the "Q question", which could easily put the issue to bed for all time if POTUS simply replied that it was all BS. Nor have any of them made any serious effort to find out who is ultimately behind the drops -- which would be the other obvious thing to do if the whole thing is just an epic LARP as they claim. So, there's yet another massive lie these loathsome, jellybacked hacks brazenly repeat to their millions of readers while casually destroying people's reputations and careers in the process with their so-called "reporting".
The similarity across all these stories is really quite, er, bizarre in itself. Why, it's almost as if they're all following a set template that has come from the same source and the separate outlets are just filling them in with the local details. Really, you gotta wonder why they hire "journalists" to do this at all. The whole soulless process could just as easily be carried out by AI (which I think is prolly the long term plan anyhow).
But just on the so-called journalist behind both pieces: You'll see in the screenshot above that Josh Taylor is credited in the first one. He also wrote the most recent one. I know this because his name was there when I first read it yesterday. But later on when I returned to take the screenshot above his name had mysteriously disappeared, having been replaced by "Australian Associated Press".
Hmm. That was odd, I thought ... It was the site's most popular local article, after all. Wouldn't you be proud of your work and want to be associated with it? I suspected that he'd removed his name to minimize the shellacking he was getting on social media. A visit to Twitter confirmed this suspicion. I'll describe exactly what I mean by this because I think it gives an insight into the minds of those behind these gutless hit pieces.
See, I went to his profile only to discover that he'd already blocked me. A quick Twitter search revealed why this was. Turned out that like so many of his fellow sneering hipsters little Josh had indulged in some cringeworthy virtue signalling about the African gang violence afflicting Melbourne when it first really blew up in the media a coupla years back.
"I lived in Melbourne for a year and a half, was more intimidated during Summernats in Canberra than any other time in Melbourne," he tweeted sanctimoniously. Given that the Canberra car show had just been in the news for banning its very popular beauty pageant to placate all the hatchet-faced, killjoy frightbats in that ultra-PC city, I couldn't help but RT him with this gentle little jibe included.
For that he blocked me! FFS, can you believe this guy? Talk about life imitating satire ... By his own admission he's intimidated by a fricken car show. Was this because of the flagrant use of fossil fuels, the burnouts and donuts, or the scantily clad chicks? Fark nose ... Then he hides behind a block because he got a bit of ribbing about it!
So, it's not at all surprising to me that he's scuttled into the shadows after his absolutely despicable hatchet job on the doc. Of course he thinks he can hide behind the "authority" of his position and employer until it all blows over. But what he doesn't realize is that this is plummeting by the day. The whole sick system that ultimately maintains it is being methodically destroyed from the very top. Also, tens of millions of normies in the USA have already woken up to the massive lies they've been told by the legacy media over decades and they are filthy mad about it. This process is starting to snowball here in Australia, too. It's only a mater of time before the MSM collapses under the weight of its own BS.
In a way, I kind of feel sorry for him. He's actually been a puppet in this -- not unlike Greta Thunberg. She's just obediently regurgitating a predetermined narrative, and so is he. He may be a few years older than her, but he's clearly still child-brained, let's face it. This credulous, obedient quality is why he was given both hit jobs, I suspect.
But I don't think that he or any of the other sneering, up-themselves twats at The Guardian realize just how big this whole issue is actually becoming. Taylor and his editor (not to mention Dr McGregor's gutless gaslighting professional peers) have all willingly been part of the cynical destruction of a good man's career and reputation for clearly political purposes and this will certainly not be the end of it.
And what if Trump does ultimately explicitly confirm that QAnon is legit or -- failing something quite that unequivocal -- one or more big legacy media outlets finally admit they were wrong about it or at least concede that Q's narrative has more veracity than those they've been running?
Holy. Effing. Hell! I would not wanna be in any of their (clown) shoes.
As we all know, Epstein didn't kill himself. But I reckon that in coming months Josh Taylor et al will definitely be shitting themselves, and many times over.
The Guardian and other fake news outlets like it are on the way out.
Nothing can stop what is coming.
For more thoughts on this whole issue and its ramifications for society please check out the video I made several months ago, soon after that first local hit piece was published. I mention Dr McGregor's case about eleven and a half minutes in, but please watch it all for context.
