house condemns qanon

The US House of Representatives have passed a resolution that condemns QAnon.  The weird, and effectively pointless resolution was passed 371 to 18.

In a resolution that seeks to make a direct tie from general conspiracy theories to QAnon, and then from QAnon to antisemitism, it is only reasonable to assume the next step will inevitably that all conspiracy theorists are nazis, the same as they have done for Trump Supporters

The bill reads in part:

    Whereas QAnon is a movement promoting a collection of unfounded conspiracy theories that have spread widely on the internet since 2017;

    Whereas QAnon initially alleged that prominent Americans are engaged in a secret plot to control the world, while using their power to exploit children, and has expanded to embrace virtually every popular conspiracy theory of the last several decades, from questioning the truth about the September 11th terrorist attacks, to believing in alien landings, to denying the safety of vaccines;

    Whereas many QAnon followers express anti-Semitic views, and the Anti-Defamation League has said that the movement’s central conspiracy theory includes anti-Semitic elements;

Furthermore, the bill continues to blame QAnon for undermining the credibility of the election:

Whereas the conspiracy theories promoted by QAnon undermine trust in America’s democratic institutions, encourage rejection of objective reality, and deepen our Nation’s political polarization; and

We have covered the continued undermining of the election and eluding to a coup by media and the Democratic Party. 

To be clear, as an individual I have always mocked QAnon and have never found any credibility in the cryptic releases.  However, for the House to waste the time to pass a resolution that specifically condemns QAnon is just as laughable.

What is QAnon?

QAnon is a movement that emerged from the message boards of 4Chan and 8Chan in an attempt to highjack the popularity of the Anonymous movement.  By claiming to be from a source close to President Trump, there has been a large deal of success regarding the popularity.  Predictions are cryptic, mostly wrong, and the personality of QAnon changes to much that it seems to have taken on the cover of random individuals.  Certainly many of whom seek to discredit any information that may have truth behind it.
