“Stop the Online Conspiracy Theorists Before They Break Democracy” | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


“Stop the Online Conspiracy Theorists Before They Break Democracy”

The QAnon community, which began on the message-board site 4chan, strongly overlaps with the support networks of far-right movements such as the EDL and Pegida. Most recently, it co-opted yellow vest demonstrations and boosted hardline Brexit campaigns and Tommy Robinson protests. By injecting conspiratorial narratives into these movements, its members can leverage existing networks and alter their political direction. A commonly used tactic is to combine conspiracist hashtags with those of viral campaigns and trending topics. The scale this generates is disproportional enough to distort public perception: In 2018, ISD identified close to 30m uses of the word “QAnon” across Twitter, YouTube and forums such as Reddit and 4chan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I notice that this story came courtesy of the Guardian.co.uk.com, not precisely the bastion of a reasonably Centrist approach to politics, etc..

But that being said, if I am reading this correctly, the person who put this up doesn't have any faith in any of their readers to watch these events, and not be misled, because they are thoroughly incapable of applying logic to the situation, and make intelligent, fact-centered decisions for themselves.

In other words, the people who don't want you to read anything by any of these groups on line, think that their AMerican, British and European counterparts are complete, utter dolts and ignoramuses, who cannot, intellectually, winnow the grain from the chaff.

I say, let these sites, etc., be examined under the unblinking light of logic and fact, and that intelligent people will not have their intellectual capacity diminished whatsoever.
