Alex Jones went nuts on QAnon this week, in a clip that’s gone viral.
Responding to Jake Angeli, the QAnon fur-clad larper from Arizona, who was promoting a whole load of Q bullshit, Jones pretty much said that all of these people are full of shit:
Because every goddamn thing out of you people’s mouths doesn’t come true. And it’s always ‘Oh, there’s energy’ or ‘Oh, now we’re done with Trump.’
You said he was the messiah! You said he was invincible! You said that it was all over. That they were going to Gitmo. And now that he’s part of a larger thing of Q.
I will not suffer your Q people after this. I knew what you were day one, I know what you are now, and I’m sick of it.
That’s how a lot of people like me, that follow this stuff closely, have been feeling for a long time.
This is the closest thing I can find to the full interview (it appears to be the full interview, just without audio):
The problem here is that Q is tailored for boomers, and they’re all just going to keep believing it indefinitely, pretty much no matter what.
I’m not really sure what you do about that, frankly, but it probably doesn’t even matter. As long as these people are willing to go out there and fight, who cares if they believe in some weird bullshit?
Ultimately, you have to say this: even though it might have lost its usefulness, QAnon was a helluva lot more successful than the Alt-Right.
