Hrm....Flynn was calling for Trump to declare Martial Law and have the entire election redone and overseen by the Military.....and Flynn's brother just happened to be the General who was Refusing to send the National Guard to the Capitol while it was under attack

PORTLAND, Ore. — Protesters in the Pacific Northwest smashed windows at a Democratic Party headquarters, marched through the streets and burned an American flag on Wednesday in a strident challenge by antifascist and racial-justice protesters to the new administration of President Biden, whose promised reforms, they declared 'won't save us.'

In Portland, Ore., lines of federal agents in camouflage — now working under the Biden administration — blanketed streets with tear gas and unleashed volleys of welt-inducing pepper balls as they confronted a crowd that gathered outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement building near downtown. Some in the crowd later burned a Biden-for-President flag in the street.

“No Cops, Prisons, Borders, Presidents,” said one banner, while another proclaimed that the conflict over racial justice, policing, immigration and corporate influence in the country was “not over” merely because a new president had been inaugurated in Washington, D.C.

“A Democratic administration is not a victory for oppressed people,” said a flier handed out during the demonstrations, during which protesters also smashed windows at a shop often described as the original Starbucks in downtown Seattle. The communiqués used expletives to condemn Mr. Biden and “his stupid” crime bill, passed in 1994 and blamed for mass incarcerations in the years since.

Not surprising to be honest. I've got 1 friend that I keep in touch with that self-admits would happily welcome full blown socialism and she and her friends were pissed when Biden was selected as the nominee. For those people, anyone right of AOC is unacceptable.

Biden inauguration leaves QAnon believers in disarray

Followers of the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory are split over how to react after Joe Biden's inauguration confounded their predictions that Donald Trump would remain president in order to punish his enemies in the "deep state".
Many reacted with shock and despair as Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th US president.
"I just want to throw up," said one in a popular chat on the Telegram messaging app. "I'm so sick of all the disinformation and false hope."
For weeks, QAnon followers had been promoting 20 January as a day of reckoning, when prominent Democrats and other elite "Satanic paedophiles" would be arrested and executed on the orders of President Trump.
But, as Mr Biden took his oath and no arrests were made, some in the QAnon community had an uncomfortable meeting with reality.
"It's done and we were played," wrote another.

One popular Telegram channel reassured its 130,000 subscribers that Mr Trump and the Q team were still in control behind the scenes, and the "evil deeds" of the deep state would be exposed "over the next four years".
Some doubled down, criticising those who in their view had rushed to judgement.
One claimed Mr Biden was running his administration as an inmate inside a military compound, but he "doesn't know it yet".

As inauguration day drew to a close, QAnon communities were still filled with mixed emotions.
Some said they were waiting for "Q", who has been largely silent since election day, to post as they had so many unanswered questions.
And some expressed hope that Mr Trump would communicate directly with them soon.
However, a considerable chunk of the community remains steadfast in their belief, urging one another to remain patient and keep the faith.
It is difficult to predict where the movement goes from here.

I hope Biden rightfully takes credit for this...
*the statement above is sarcasm, aimed at 45...sorry for any confusion...
I'm happy about the market seemingly liking the fact that we actually had a peaceful transfer of power...thank God! I'm glad we have a new POTUS...especially after the election results were pretty damn clear and the old POTUS couldn't accept them. He made a grave political error in being such a dick that he couldn't accept it, regroup and move on. The fact he failed to even do the transfer in the way that 95% of the country would have liked is sad and the reason I hope the man never runs again and that the party shuts him out rather than the other party doing it (which will cause division and problems just as it always has).

So I've mentioned my cousin's Q posts before. It's all the bizarre stuff you've already heard about, but man, the obsession on pedophilia is perhaps the strangest aspect of their whole set of claims.

He had some post today that supposedly connects the deaths of, get this, Sheldon Adelson, Phil Spector, & a host of others from around the globe.

I wonder how many of them really believe all that stuff and how many are just having fun with it. For example, I lend credence to the lunar landing conspiracy theory, not because I really believe it, but because it is fun to believe in it and think about the angles, if that makes any sense at all.

900,000 Americans signed up for first time unemployment in Trump's last week. but 1,000 jobs on the XL pipeline is the problem. LOL
Unemployment is not on Trump, that’s on the virus and many large liberal cities that decided to basically shut down their respective small business economy. He didn’t give an EO for unemployment like Biden did. And the 1,000 is just within a week, much more to come as a direct result one one signature by your beloved President.

Regardless, those that are doing it "just for funsies" are taking a seriously unhealthy and dangerous mental toll on the people are actually believing it is real. Some may think it's just a fun game but other think it is very VERY real.

Just going off of human nature, you're probably right. I'm sure there are varying degrees of actual buy in on some of the claims, & some it's just being in a place with like-minded people. Case in point, that post I mentioned from my cousin did have people asking 'how exactly are all these people & deaths connected, & to what?'

The current round of conspiracy stuff just reminds me of people I worked with/knew 20 years ago. The internet was in it's infancy, but these guys had books & books talking Illuminati, etc... A couple of them stored food & water, took their money out of banks for Y2K. McVeigh, Montana Freemen, Randy Weaver-these kooks have been around forever, but social media sure makes it easier for them to share their message.

Censoring the fringe voices, though, is a little concerning to me. Kinda hard to square suppression of election fraud claims, while claims of a President being a Russian asset are still allowed to stand. And no, I didn't vote for Trump, but I do notice the double standard here.
