Post QAnon is here
You might have already figured this out, but KindaSkolarly/Mike Sheedy is our emissary from the QAnon world. Check out a good article in the June Atlantic titled "How QAnon is Warping Reality and Discrediting Science," by Adrienne LaFrance. One important objective of the followers of Q has been to extend the presence of this new religious worldview to more mainstream and respected media sites. This must be why Kinda has decided to touch down here. His penchant for making many predictions--none of which come true--is right out of the playbook of Q himself. So is his devotion to "doing the research."

Post Re: QAnon is here
I looked at QAnon early on thinking it might be an interesting hoax to follow and see how it develops. That idea quickly evaporated since when scratching below the surface, one finds Nazi sliminess that I didn't want to deal with routinely. They describe anyone with different views in absolutely horrific terms, not suitable to quote here.

One interesting aspect of QAnon is how they deal with numerous failed predictions. One of the big predictions was the arrest of something like 25K+ high level politicians and bureaucrats (including Hillary of course) for housing at Guantanamo and similar facilities. This was supposed to happen end of 2017 / early 2018 IIRC and would cause massive civil unrest. The longer this did not happen, the faith of a few weakened, but obviously not all.

That Atlantic article is very good, I'll reread it and post more.

Here's a response to the riots from one of the popular QAnon publicists.
