The issue with Qanon is it’s a blood libel. It’s a quick and easy way to dehumanize the Usual Suspects of MAGA rage such that, lulz, they can be murdered in cold blood by House Trump’s willing executioners.
Remember, too often these days, we, without even thinking about it, work within the conventions of the America we once knew. Now that — since Trump’s acquittal by the Senate — we’re nothing more than Trumplandia, such notions are rather foolish.
So, even though Trump himself is a criminally incompetent moron, after he steals his second term, Qanon will become the very DNA of the Republican Party. Once the batshit insane concepts associated with Qanon are the conventional wisdom of the Republican Establishment, it doesn’t take a lot of work to imagine a rather violent shift in House Trump’s relations to the target of Qanon — (wealthy) (celebrity) liberals.
Now, I can’t predict the future. And I don’t have any “reveled truth.” But I am pretty good a running scenarios and all systems are go for not only Trump stealing the 2020 election in a rather brazen fashion, but for the horrific dreams of Qanon to become a reality far sooner than any of us dare think.
And, if you really wanted to get dark, you could even go so far as to say Qanon is a ready work around for the more Nazi-like elements of MAGA. In a way, Nazism is a subset of Qanon because many — but not all — of the targets of Qanon are Jewish. It is fairly easy to imagine a situation where exactly the same things that happen in Nazi Germany happen in Trumplandia only under the guise of Qanon.
The key issue is — the absolute bloodthirsty nature of MAGA is staring us straight in the face and we’re luzling it. We’re completely delusional. By every metric, MAGA has already lain the groundwork for American Killing Fields, or whatever they endup being called.
I mean, the ICE camps already exist. It’s a short jaunt from ICE camps to Trumplandia death camps for the objects of Qanon.
The thing we have to remember is no one is going to save us. I don’t even know if we can save ourselves.
And, again, I can’t predict the future. I may be wrong. I hope I’m wrong.
But we need to start taking the real world implications of Qanon seriously.
