This is bad. Very, very bad. Tucker Carlson is defending and promoting Qanon.

Seems about par for the course, really. I don't get why everyone's acting all fuckin' surprised; FFS idiots like me have been screaming about this happening since Fox called the election.

The failure of Qanon predictions regarding the election is a wake up call for those still in the cult. By creating positive reinforcement for it, Carlson is now actively calling for support of a group who do not accept Biden's legitimacy and are increasingly willing to use violence to make their point.

When faced with a crisis (like the failure of a major prophecy), cults can become more extreme, rather than dissolving.

The more moderate members of the cult leave, but the more extreme elements remain.  With the reduction in moderating influences (and the increase in cognitive dissonance required to weather the failure), the group as a whole shifts even further into madness.

This thing with Reddit and Gamestop kind of seems to me to be a second major attack on "the establishment" by an angry mob in a matter of just a few weeks. I wonder when and where the next one will take place. I have a feeling it's going to be a continuing theme this year.

I bet even that brood of cicadas due to emerge in a few months will be, like, super aggressive. Maul some raccoons and shit, or whatever eats cicadas, I dunno.


ETA: Also, the WTB group may have been goaded into the attack by wealthy demagogues looking to use their anger to furthur their own self-interests. If so, that could be another aspect of the pattern.

Hello  welcome to my unfiltered garbage

Part of me really wants to believe that this will change anything for the people who were outside the building and didn't actually want to storm it. Like, I can see that faintest glimmer of a possibility that they could see how part of a protest could be calm while another one is a complete shitstorm, that they could take a step back and say "oh so some people burned buildings during BLM events but just like I didn't want to storm the capitol and do a coup maybe the BLM people aren't about rioting." And I know, I know, it's not going to happen. It's a moment that would make sense for it to happen if it could, but the MAGA cult is very resistant to enemy memes. I know.

I am sick to death of people who are whining that police hitting these chuds with teargas or killing that woman is bad somehow. No. They are my enemies and I wish them harm. Full stop. The reasons you do things matter, and these fuckos invaded the Capitol to install their beloved dictator for another 4 years. They didn't storm it to end police brutality, or to end the concentration camps, or to end the fossil fuel industry before it kills us all. They did it because they are at best gullible wannabe revolutionaries and more likely because they are racist fucks who want to return to a fictionalized version of America where their Whiteness would get them a house and wife and kids and the ability to beat the shit out of any brown people in their neighborhood, and also the wife and kids. FUCK THEM. I HOPE THEY DIE.

All of this.

Thrice. Soz, late to the party but it's been motherfucking busy as a motherfucker this end

BREAKING NEWS!

Man with history of throwing people under buses, throws more people under a bus!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG4rBlac-UE

Not a bad speech, though.  Didn't sound a whit like Trump.  I'm surprised he read it.  I wonder who wrote it.

That has got to be one of the most piss poor uses of deepfake tech I've seen since since Faceswap came out on iphone and I had to look at nothing but on my insta feed for the best part of six months. I mean even disney's Luke job at the end of Mandalorian S02 was more convincing than that and that's currently getting slagged off left right and center by pretty much anyone who charges money for the same vfx pass and a bunch of the hobbyists to boot.

I can just picture the scene - the old guy in the bad suit is currently off his tits on 21st century quaalude and lying in a puddle of his own drool, in the oval office, pants round his ankles, gibbering incoherently about turtle power and "Shredder wouldn't stand for this shit". Meanwhile the guys in charge of keeping this trainwreck profitable and their own heads off the chopping block know that it's not really feasible, right this minute, even for an arch villain character like Cartman, not to make some kind of rambling statement along the lines of "Not all people with antlers on their heads are bad people" or whatever the fuck.

Tension is mounting amongst all the arses on a seat of power which is fast looking like more of an electric chair for anyone caught sitting on it. Suddenly some aide who's facebook posts for the last 6 months have been tiktok clips of her starring in everything from Titanic to Harry Met Sally pulls her iphone out and relives her favourite - plucky kid from the typing pool saves earth from the asteroid - moment from that movie where the plucky kid from the typing pool saved the earth from the asteroid. The same one that got her 20 likes from her pals on FB and a bunch of "You're so tech savvy, you're wasted as an assistant to one of the assistants to someone important in the Whitehouse." - type comments when she chopped her face over it.

And some fucking desperate high ranking communications official actually decided that was their best option right then and greenlit the fucker :lulz:

Mess with Gamestock stock, and you'll win the presidential election!

Please let me know the next stock that's going through the roof so I can buy it now!  :fnord:

MURDER HORNETS CICADAS!!!!

Here's an idea:

Make a recording of the cicadas.
Run it through a talk box.
Have "the swarm" deliver demands, threats, and/or prophecy.
Play it back through really big speakers.

I'll look around and see what I can find. Most of the recordings sound like a cross between a tire with a bad leak and the dialup noise.

I'm thinking any complex message is going to be unintelligible. Might work best if it just repeats a single word.

This one seems to be better than most.

Also, I've started a thread in OMF since this is really just super off topic and has no relation to the capitol building being raided by dollar store knockoff Nazis.
