What Possesses A Person To Follow Stupid?

A good question, right?

Why would anyone with half a brain saddle their life to a silly group like QAnon?

Another fine question.

QAnon believe that the United States’ federal government has been infiltrated by an international cabal of child sex traffickers, pedophiles, Satanists and cannibals, and they exalt Trump as the heroic figure who was put in the White House to fight the sinister cabal. But as absurd as all of that sounds, there were — to illustrate Uscinski’s point — people promoting absurd beliefs 50, 60 or 70 years ago.

Answers forthcoming…….

Anti-establishment sentiments are a key component of political opinion and behavior in the United States and are distinct from traditional indicators of political ideology, according to new research. The findings indicate anti-establishment viewpoints have played a key role in some beliefs that came to prominence during the Trump era, such as the QAnon movement.

The research has been published in the American Journal of Political Science and The Forum.

“I was interested in this project because it increasingly seemed to me that polarization and political identities were increasingly bearing the brunt of the blame –– perhaps erroneously –– for socially undesirable beliefs and actions that were probably the product of other orientations, like conspiracy thinking and a tendency to view politics as a struggle between good and evil,” said co-author Adam M. Enders, an assistant professor of political science at the University of Louisville.

Scientists uncover a psychological factor that explains support for QAnon better than political ideology

I made my thoughts known on changes for the Court…..https://lobotero.com/2020/09/25/i-have-lots-to-say-about-scotus/

As long as think tanks and political lobbyists pick the candidates we will have a court that are nothing more than a bunch of political slugs where ideology means more than the justice they pretend to defend.

  1. Could be a long list of why people follow such groups: low self-esteem, insecurity, the need to believe in something because they have no moral compass, pent up rage at how their life turned out – and dontcha know, it HAS to be somebody else’s fault…..

  2. They have gone very quiet over here. Not sure if their popularity has waned, or they are planning something big to come in the future.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. There were to much think tanks, in the past. The people have forgotten thinking by themselves. I like the Twitter screenshot with the “Catholics for Trump” and “V is Vigano”. Lol Stupidity is transferable. xx Michael
