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.

Denver Police to Fight Violent Extremism

crimeshop-extremism

Denver Police Department – Colorado

So, last week I read somewhere that the Denver Police Department was given a grant of $240K in an effort to fight violent extremism.

Extremism is defined as – the holding of extreme political or religious views; fanaticism.

And it is not always easy to see at first glance.

I like many others started thinking what the justification is behind the grant?

Well here’s your answer, the funding was provided by the Department of Homeland Security in an effort to help officers “root” out extremists and to combat terrorism.

Something Denver has yet to have had any major type of issue with what so ever, right? At least on the surface right because when applying for the grant the Denver Police Department stated that in the year 2016 they had to investigate 5 cases of “potential” homegrown terrorists.

I could not find the specifics for those 5 cases and that might be due to ongoing investigations still or it could be that they were unfounded or that the department had to turn intel over to the FBI or another agency.

The application also just so happened cite previous domestic terrorism cases, which were the Columbine High School shooting, the Aurora movie theater shooting, and the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting.

With a grand finale of 2, 2014 cases of local girls being recruited by ISIS in an effort to support this grant request.

To be completely honest, those were acts of extremism, most of which were violent. Not to mention that the reality is simply that violent extremists are more often than not, home grown for one reason or another. 

The issue that many take with the department being awarded the grant however is that many in the community fear more militarization of police. I completely understand the fear yet, on the other hand in today’s world I am not sure police departments have much choice.

It’s buck up or potentially get slaughtered.

At some point personally, I would expect police to be properly trained in an effort to spot and handle any potential of violent extremism, not stand on the sidelines helpless to help people like you and I.

I am excited to learn how the Denver Police Department plans to use the funds and what the training will look like.

What’s more is that I am curious to see if it will be of any help to thwart acts of violent extremism.

Violent extremism seems to be moving in an upward direction these days and it’s anyone’s guess, not if, but when the next violent mass event will take place in America.
