It's like a midnight screening for "Rocky Horror Picture Show".

These people are funny, but they are also mentally-ill loons and dangerous.

It is so easy to mock these people but this is what Social Media and the internet in general is doing to a significant portion of this country. These are fringe out in the open insanity cases, but what about the militarized faux patriot segment that are equally fringe insanity cases?

Someone needs to explain to me how any member of the Kennedy family would ever be considered to be a supporter of the political far right. While at it, someone needs to explain to me how Barry Goldwater's views are now considered to be too far left of those of the modern Republican Party ...

This would make a great campaign ad...which is why the Democrats won't air it.

@#2 ... It's like a midnight screening for "Rocky Horror Picture Show". ...

I disagree.

I have known people who went to those midnight screenings. They went for the fun of it, to have a good time. After the screening, they returned to reality.

The QAnon people seem to have difficulty returning to reality, indeed they seem to think their delusions are reality.

The ones who annoy me the most are the people who claim they know it is all pretend and that they are into it just because it is fun, but then through their statements and their behavior demonstrate that on some level they actually buy into it, at least partially.

In other words, liars.

I haven't seen any media coverage of this strange event lately but I'm told there are still some crazy loons hanging around waiting for it to happen.

I think they just enjoy making a mockery of JFK... who's popularity was the strongest with the American people in recent history with around 70 percent the 3 years he was in office. By comparison, the average for all presidents between 1938 and 2012 is 54 percent.

Of course, what most Americans like and want isn't particularly important to extremists of any sort.

And I remember, always, the attitude of the far right back then when he, his brother, and MLK were all three murdered in public assassinations. They were delighted, smiling behind their hands.

They hate the idea that FDR, elected 4 times, even existed. And if they take full power, they'll be tearing down his statues. They've always been crazy, unAmerican -----.

How come there are no left wing movements that believe in anything this stupid?

The most radical left wingers believe in communism and banning fossil fuels. Which are stupid but based in reality.

Radical right wingers beleive in JKF Jr, Bill Gates putting microchips in vaccines, and jewish space lasers.

Why is that?

Can we start a Qanon rumor that has them standing outside in, say, Minneapolis in the middle of January? I'd find that a lot more entertaining to watch.
