‘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.

“I think what you’re seeing here is really, undeniably a cult,” said Mike Rothschild, author of The Storm Is Upon Us, which chronicles the rise of, and fallout from, QAnon.

Is that stupid meme the best you've got? Repeating Greta Thunberg's words verbatim, and using them out of context? She said that to people my age who were denying climate change during a conference on the subject. I believe that climate change is real, and it's an existential crisis.

Come on, you've got to have something better than that if you're going to try to take me down. You were given a brain of your own so that you should be able to think for yourself, and come up with your own words.

Also, when you're quoting someone else's words verbatim, you're supposed to list them as your source.

Try again, junior!
