QUOTABLE QUOTES ~ Caitlin Johnstone: “QAnon Cultism”

“QAnon, like Russiagate, consists of nothing other than something that people desperately want to believe and then seek out excuses which allow them to feel comfortable believing it. QAnon cultists do this every single time because they have been propagandized into doing so, both by the 8chan anon they follow and by the herd mentality of the community that it has fostered. This makes it far more akin to a religion or a cult than a conspiracy theory. It’s made many bogus claims and inaccurate predictions. Personally I prefer to focus on the behaviors of the QAnon cultists themselves, since they’re the ones interpreting the cryptic word salads and circulating those interpretations online. They behave as cheerleaders for their government’s most depraved agendas; it doesn’t really matter what they are being told to believe to get them to behave that way. Someone’s benefiting from this, and it isn’t you.”
