QAnon is facing a turning point in the aftermath of President Joe Biden’s inauguration.

The inauguration contradicted the movement’s baseless conspiracy theory that former President Donald Trump would return for a second term in order to confront a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles running the Democratic Party.

With Trump no longer in office, some followers have abandoned their beliefs, attempting to make amends with family and friends they had alienated along their twisting path to an alternate reality originally concocted on 4Chan message boards.

But others have renewed their pledge of allegiance to “Q,” the anonymous poster who purports to be a Trump adviser and their leader. They have tried to rationalize Biden becoming president in increasingly outrageous ways, claiming that Biden and Trump are working together and even that Trump and Biden somehow switched bodies. And some are now looking to March 4 as the next big watershed moment for their movement — the date that they believe Trump will once again be inaugurated.

Trump and Biden swapping bodies...there's a podcast in this link; I haven't had the courage to listen to it....

Outrage is warranted. But outrage unaccompanied by analysis is a danger in itself.

I wonder if Trump has enough chutzpah to get DeSantis or some Florida judge to swear him in, and then to claim that he is the President, operating from the Southern White House. I don't think so, but I've learned never to think that anything is too ridiculous for Trump to try.

Wait, if they think Trump and Biden swapped bodies, will this mean they'll start supporting "Biden"?

Hmmmm.....

I hadn't heard this one:

quote:
In 2008, the couple voted for Obama. Now Mark’s wife believes in some of the most fringe ideas from QAnon, namely that after the Civil War, the United States ceased being a country and became a corporation through a loan the US received from the Vatican. She also believes that the 2020 inauguration was supposed to be the day that Biden was arrested for a variety of crimes (many against children), and the day that the United States would be restored as a country — not a corporation — under President Trump.
