QAnon Movement Echos Sovereign Citizen Movement

Radicalized American Citizens

Cristal M Clark 

After QAnon became effectively radicalized by Donald J Trump over the course of four years, the movement whose ideals echo that of the Sovereign Citizen Movement have become a bit more than just whack job conspiracy theorists – they are now deranged and dangerous. When an idea becomes an action once, it will continue to become an action until it is effectively stopped. 

According to the latest prediction by QAnon tomorrow will be a day of action and the day that Donald J Trump takes office once again.  

Whatsmore is that fanning the flames quietly in a nod of encouragement, which feeds the fire, Trump’s DC hotel has raised its prices currently sighting demand, which further acts as a silent suggestion or invitation if you will, to come on down and start something. 

So many people ask me why, why do these people fall pretty to the ideology of movements like QAnon? Some of what they believe are things like 911 was faked by the US Government, Sandy Hook was staged, the list goes on, these groups even have so called video evidence that educated and reasonable individuals walk away shaking our heads wondering how or why people can subscribe to such silly, whacky ideas, honestly. 

I’ve written about the psychological make-up of these types of people back when Trump was elected back around 2016. 

These are not reasonably sane people. They know right from wrong enough so as to know violence is wrong, it’s breaking the law but the way they view the law, politics, this country is fucked up, really fucked up. 

They heard what they wanted to hear several times, it spoke to something they felt inside and becoming part of a movement like QAnon gives them a purpose, they feel empowered, like they are given knowledge no one else has access to. By default many of them do have narcissistic character traits while others do suffer from some form of mental illness.

Either way, they are brainwashed, quite easily.  

What makes this all the worse is that fairly early on, I questioned them owning weapons back around 2016, wrote about it extensively and subtly hinted at the fact that the United States needed to do more so as to stop individuals from these radicalized movements from owning weapons including, taking them away over the individuals propensity to become enraged and react violently. 

But, I was not the only one who tried to raise the alarm bells. 

Enter four years later and you have the attack on the US Capitol. 

At some point in time, we must stop sweeping these radicalized terrorist movements under the rug and dealing with them headon. We must ensure that they do not have access to weapons and some need to be hospitalized for deprogramming. 

That will upset people but it’s what we must do in order to keep our nation safe from these terrorist movements that are based off of lies, manipulation and misinformation. 

It’s fairly clear the whoever is running QAnon, is simply running for the hardon and then subsequently getting off when they see an act of domestic terrorism, people having full blown fits of rage in public over wearing a facemask. 

The amount of misinformation and fake news spewing from QAnon more than prove the movement is nothing more than an attempt to agitate, to disrupt, to see how many people can be duped and how many levels of people they can dupe. We do have some individuals in office right now that share in these movements’ ideologies, or they have but now deeply regret it, the point is, the movement found away all the way to Capitol Hill in the minds of politicians who support the movement and that is not good. 

The process QAnon uses in order to brainwash and recruit is not unlike terrorist organizations. It is only a matter of time before groups like this go from being simple movements to outright terrorist organizations.

Calling Out Bars?

Colorado – Grizzly Rose 

Cristal M Clark 

Today whilst checking my Facebook, I noted an article by local Fox news affiliate, KDVR. The article which sparked it’s own sort of outrage depicted Denver’s very own Grizzly Rose bar. Apparently someone was at the venue this past weekend and the snitch shot video of patrons not wearing masks or social distancing. The video was blurry at best, in fact from what I saw of it, most people were wearing masks, while others were not. 

This opened up a flood of comments from pissed off readers and viewers who thought overwhelmingly that the news story was in fact underwhelming and in poor taste. Truly it did not depict the other side of the situation and only focused on one brief yet fleeting moment in time. Readers were upset the news station had the audacity to waste its time with such a story, others were upset because they felt it really was not that big of a deal, at least not breaking news, worthy. Some argued that those in attendance will now be going home, to work or school to spread the virus, while others said that the attendees are selfish cruel human beings. 

The truth is, this is a virus, I had it and it sucked but it is a virus. We cannot escape the virus, it’s like the cold or the flu, it is going to spread no matter what and that is a simple, gut wrenching fact. 

So what do we do to help stop the spread? Wear masks and socially distance when out in public, unless you are at a venue drinking and partying. The truth is, most of the attendees seen not socially distancing and not wearing a mask at the venue do in fact wear masks and socially distance the majority of the time so, they are doing their part to stop the spread in most situations. Masks don’t stop the virus, they simply help slow the spread, so if I have it and I am wearing a mask, I am less likely to pass it to someone else. Most spreaders of the virus don’t even know that they have it. 

Second, we should stop focusing on controlling businesses, the general public and the like and focus on vaccinations and protecting the vulnerable and the elderly, meaning those groups should be staying home and not going out into public. 

But if anyone thinks the Grizzly Rose story is breaking news, you are kidding yourself. In fact, here in Colorado some establishments stop taking credit card after a certain time of night and accept cash only just to stay open, serve alcohol and still make the money needed to keep staff employed and pay those bills that have not been affected by the pandemic. Do you think those establishments give a flying fuck if anyone is masking up or socially distancing? Hardly. 

At least the Grizzly Rose tried to get patriots to comply. 

I’ve said this before, I am not for shutting businesses down, limited capacity and preventing people from living life normally at all. All any of that does is kill an economy and does very, very little so as to prevent the spread of a virus. I go back to isolate the vulnerable, the sick and the elderly and leave everyone else alone. 

Granted the vulnerable and elderly are not going to like that take but that population is considerably less than the healthy working population is, the Government would have had a much easier time taking care of them than the massive amounts of people who lost jobs because the United States freaked the fuck out and started shutting everything down. 

Whatsmore, if you step into any grocery or big box store, half the people in those places cannot manage to wear a mask correctly and they are usually packed with shoppers, daily.  

The reason we failed with controlling the spread is because we attempted to control human beings from simply being able to live life. The government did not pay us to sit at home so people got restless and also lost trust because as states started to reopen, many learned that they had no job to return to, no assistance came to cover the bills that never took a break, businesses were forced to close no just temporarily but forever because no help came for them. 

Businesses should have been encouraged to allow workers to work from home, restaurants and bars should have encouraged takeout, outdoor seating long before governments allowed for it, but nothing should have been shut down, ever. 

I hope the Grizzly Rose does not get into trouble, from what I saw those patrons needed the night out to blow off both stress and steam. We should be looking back at our own government and asking them where the help is so that these establishments can pay those bills and keep staff employed, not punishing them for living the American Fucking Dream.
