Qanon: A Freedom of Thought Movement

In its latest attempt to shame Q followers into submission, Wired Magazine wrote an article titled, “Online Conspiracy Groups are a lot Like Cults.”

Their thesis: Now that we’ve successfully linked mass shooters and bombers to online conspiracy groups, you might want to reconsider where this Q conspiracy is leading you.

Like a watchful parent, the mainstream media believe they know what’s best for you and they want you to heed their advice.

An interesting pattern of behavior has emerged recently among the mainstream media. At the end of July, all the major news outlets in lock-step, published over 50 articles in a 48 hour period on Q. Every article portrayed Q in a negative light, warning readers not to get involved in the movement.

It would be expected that dozens of news outlets would publish articles on the same day about a major event of general interest to the public. That’s how news cycles are generated. But Q wasn’t a sudden event. He had been posting on 4chan and 8chan for 9 months. Nothing had happened that would merit widespread attention.

The articles were published following the President’s rally in Tampa, Florida on July 31. The justification for the articles was the appearance of patriots wearing Q shirts at the rally. That wasn’t exactly news. Followers of the movement had been wearing Q shirts at rallies for months. Since Q is not in the same class as a terrorist event—a sudden incident that would merit mass coverage by the media, why did virtually every major news outlet (including Fox News) publish an article about Q within 48 hours of the Tampa rally?

The fact that news outlets covered Q at the same time is one thing. But even more perplexing is the fact that not one story allowed for the possibility that Q might be worth looking into. Whether from a liberal or conservative source, every story insisted Q is a kooky conspiracy that must be avoided.

You could write it off as mere coincidence. But the odds of something like that happening at random are near a billion to one. The other possibility is that the negative coverage of Q was coordinated. If the stories were coordinated, we might ask why?

Why would virtually every news outlet (regardless of political leaning) publish an article attacking Q in a 48-hour period?

The obvious answer is that for some reason, mainstream news outlets perceive Q to be a threat. (Not just a few news outlets but all of them). The mass attack seemed to be an attempt to silence a collective opponent. That conclusion is pregnant with ramifications. Apparently, the entire media complex isn’t just threatened by Q, they’re also coordinating the timing and content of the stories they publish about Q.

In the Wizard of Oz, the story takes a decisive turn when Dorothy’s dog, Toto, pulls back the curtain revealing the frightening Wizard of Oz to be a hoax. The decision to publish anti-Q articles at the same time pulled back the curtain on the mainstream news complex. Rather than independent outlets publishing information free of coordination, we now have evidence suggesting that the variety of information they provide is, in fact, a carefully coordinated operation designed to give the illusion of independence and freedom of thought.

“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum — even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.”
~ Noam Chomsky

Once we’ve transgressed the boundaries of what the news complex has determined to be an acceptable thought, a warning is issued. The warning is an attempt to frighten or shame us into rejecting the idea we’re considering. Thus, Q is labeled a dangerous conspiracy or a cult.

What would happen if millions of people at once rejected the thought boundaries of the media complex and wandered into unapproved territory? A global warning would be issued through every available news outlet. I believe that is what happened when the mainstream news complex published its anti-Q articles following the Tampa rally.

Strip away the rhetoric and what you’ll find with Q is an admonition to question official narratives, do your own research and come to your own conclusions. Q is an advocate of free thought. And as we’ve seen, that is perceived even by conservative commentators as a threat to their business model and their ability to control public thought.

Q is often called an online cult. If so, it’s the first cult in history where no one has met the leader and the leader demands that we think for ourselves.

My Journey Into the Q Movement

Trump Operation: Gaslight the Media

Will YouTube Suspend My Channel?

Q has been warning us for some time that those who help spread word about the movement are in danger of being censored and eventually, banned from social media.Today, I received a first strike on my YouTube channel for content considered to be hate speech. (YouTube calls it violating “community guidelines.”)

In the interest of full transparency, I’d like to explain how YouTube works.

The Carrot & Stick
YouTube’s business model is built around advertising. If you provide content that draws a large enough crowd, you can apply to have your account monetized. If approved, YouTube will find advertisers for your videos. The advertisers gain clients, YouTube makes money and they share it with content providers. It’s an incentive to provide better quality videos.

Before I began decoding Q, I didn’t have enough views on my channel to apply for monetization. Not long afterward, I did. Over the next few months, subscribers increased and so did ad revenue. But during the summer, I began receiving notifications that YouTube was reviewing my videos manually and they determined the content to be unsuitable for advertisers. Every week I received half a dozen notifications that my videos were being reviewed and YouTube stopped running ads on those videos.

YouTube’s parent company, Google, endorses a certain political viewpoint. Broadcasters who share opposing political views are subject to negative consequences like having their videos demonetized. The removal of ads is an alert to providers to encourage them to change their content. If you refuse to comply, YouTube continues reviewing your videos and removing ads, which decreases your revenue.

I take great care not to violate copyright or community guidelines as prescribed by YouTube. Despite that, they’ve managed over the last three months to almost completely demonetize my channel. I’ve resisted their pressure to change my message and now it seems they’re increasing the penalties. They’ve accused me of violating “community guidelines” (using hate speech). The threat now is having my channel suspended. I’m not changing my message. As a consequence, I expect them to look for more videos that violate “community guidelines” and add 2 more strikes to my account. Once an account has 3 strikes, all videos are removed and the account is suspended.

Q indicated that the removal of all Q threads from Reddit and the removal of Alex Jones from all social media platforms was a test to see how people would react to increasing censorship. Their goal is to completely disrupt discussions of Q by banning users who engage in those discussions. If past practice in an indicator, it seems this is the direction they will take. If they suspend my account, it seems likely they’ll suspend other YouTubers who report on Q.

I take Q’s warnings seriously and I’ve anticipated the possibility of being banned not just from YouTube but all social media platforms.

I’d like to be clear about one thing:
This isn’t about me. It’s about what God is doing through men like President Trump and how the President’s plan is being conveyed to us through people like Q.

Having said that, this is my website and you come here to find information that I provide. If a change is going to occur in the way I provide that information, I need to let you know about it in a timely manner. I’m praying that I don’t get banned from social media but if that happens, I want you to know that my videos and articles will remain available here. I’ve backed up my videos on multiple hosting platforms. This weekend, I’ll begin swapping out YouTube videos on this website for versions that are hosted on Vimeo.

I’ll keep you updated as we learn more. Keep us in prayer. Thanks for your support.
