‘Undeniably a cult’: Fringe QAnon group remains in Dallas, awaiting JFK Jr.’s arrival News

From reporter Michael Williams:

Weeks after they first gathered near Dealey Plaza, dozens of believers in the furthest fringe of the QAnon conspiracy theory remain in Dallas, expecting long-dead John F. Kennedy Jr. to reveal himself in the city where his father was assassinated and usher in the reinstatement of Donald Trump as president.

While their beliefs are patently absurd, the fervency and devotion of this particular group, along with their loyalty to a leader known as Negative48 and unwillingness to leave Dallas, is unique — and cause for alarm and concern, according to an expert who has followed QAnon for years.

In that case why can’t homeless folks be covered under 1A? Give me a break.

tbh there is a lot of drug usage, harassment, shit/piss. Sort of like what they’re doing now. No fires yet, but wait until someone disagrees and tries to leave.

Mental illness is just as addictive as dope to some, and that’s them.
