    Gotta be a tough day for QAnon people.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/20/t...uguration.html

    Followers of QAnon, the pro-Trump conspiracy theory, have spent weeks anticipating that Wednesday would be the “Great Awakening” — a day, long foretold in QAnon prophecy, when top Democrats would be arrested for running a global sex trafficking ring and President Trump would seize a second term in office.

    But as President Biden took office and Mr. Trump landed in Florida, with no mass arrests in sight, some believers struggled to harmonize the falsehoods with the inauguration on their TVs.

    Some QAnon believers tried to rejigger their theories to accommodate a transfer of power to Mr. Biden. Several large QAnon groups discussed on Wednesday the possibility that they had been wrong about Mr. Biden, and that the incoming president was actually part of Mr. Trump’s effort to take down the global cabal.

    “The more I think about it, I do think it’s very possible that Biden will be the one who pulls the trigger,” one account wrote in a QAnon channel on the messaging app Telegram.

    Others expressed anger with QAnon influencers who had told believers to expect a dramatic culmination on Inauguration Day.

    “A lot of YouTube journalists have just lost one hell of a lot of credibility,” wrote a commenter in one QAnon chat room.

    Still others attempted to shift the goal posts, and simply told their fellow “anons” to hang on and wait for future, unspecified developments.

    “Don’t worry about what happens at 12 p.m.,” wrote one QAnon influencer. “Watch what happens after that.”

    And some appeared to realize that they’d been duped.

    “It’s over,” one QAnon chat room participant wrote, just after Mr. Biden’s swearing-in.

    “Wake up,” another wrote. “We’ve been had.”

    Followers hoping for guidance from “Q,” the pseudonymous message board user whose posts power the movement, were bound to be disappointed. The account has been silent for weeks, and had not posted Wednesday.

    Ron Watkins, a major QAnon booster whom some have suspected of being “Q” himself, posted a note of resignation on his Telegram channel on Wednesday afternoon.

    “We have a new president sworn in and it is our responsibility as citizens to respect the Constitution,” he wrote. “As we enter into the next administration please remember all the friends and happy memories we made together over the past few years.”

    Tea Bag party, Q'Annon, next? Magical thinking has a short shelf life. Even the king of crazy Alex Jones is berating them for being too crazy. I love the resignation letter's "remember all the friends and happy memories we made together". Sounds like a breakup letter. Even though we are parting we will always have the shared memories of the Capitol Building raid. That is so sweet. I think I am going to cry.

    A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.

    And watch the Pen being pulled out of his shirt to sign all of his executive orders.

    But the difference on here is that is ok for Biden to do it.

    When Trump did the same it was OMG!
    The difference tho...when Trump pulled out his pen he was signing checks to porn stars!!!

    I know it’s almost like the former President tried to lead an insurrection and incite terrorists with security failure or something.

    Yeah, I lived in Pittsburgh in 89 for that one (actually started in 1986 I think). And it wasn't the creche that was unconstitutional it was that it was not clear that it was not the government endorsing one religion above others. So, supposedly a creche with a big sign that said "**** God" would be acceptable on public land.

    Should we draw any conclusions from several of the countries at the top of that list being among the least ethnically diverse Caucasian countries? Or about those countries being among the top countries in household income? I know my friends who are poor and discriminated against would feel a lot happier if both of those things were not an issue and those are not socialist issues really.

    Also, the nordic system those countries run isn't really socialist but capitalist with a strong social support structure. They WERE socialist and it didn't work for them so they went back to capitalism.
