  1. The subject of the QAnonsense came up on another blog, so:

    Back in the first decade of this millennium, I hoped another conspiracy theory was true: that the Cheney Administration (come on, who believes Dubya actually ran things?) knew the 9/11 attacks were coming, and let them happen (or even made them happen) so they could twist it around and blame Iraq, so they would have an excuse to go in, establish a puppet government, and seize all that lovely petroleum (of course, that didn’t work out, because it turned out Iraqis fight a lot harder when they’re fighting for their people and their faith and other things they love, instead of for a dictator’s ambition).

    Why did I hope that? So that, if it could be proven true, then all those white conservatives (disclosure: cis-het white male American here)–whom I thought were, at least, patriots–would turn in righteous outrage against the Republican Party and the American conservative movement, and liberalism, or at least centrism, could make a comeback.

    I see now that I was foolish to hope that, even if the 9/11 treason hypothesis had turned out to be true.

    Benedict Donald is a traitor at least in spirit, if not in literal legal terms (and I still think he may be a literal legal traitor)–and for anyone paying attention, that was plain when he was running for President the first time–and yet, most white conservatives love him still, because he hates the people they hate.

    I have lost hope they will ever turn against him.

    Therefore, Benedict Donald can sit on his tiny hands while his master Sith Tsar Putin offers bounties to the sheep-shagging barbarians who call themselves “Taliban” to kill the men and women of our Armed Forces, and they will still vote for him in November. 😡
